— Gabriel Malor

Happy Wednesday.

Justice Scalia had a tough day yesterday.

Democratic Congressman Bennie Thompson went on a New Nation of Islam radio show to call Justice Thomas an "Uncle Tom" and Sen. McConnell a racist.

I expect stay requests in capital cases will get extra scrutiny after a lethal injection in Oklahoma last night left the inmate semi-conscious and convulsing before finally killing him 40 minutes later. Gov. Fallin postponed the other execution scheduled for yesterday.

Gotta love the scare quotes around "gays." And that poll. And please, I beg you, read the quotes from Buddy Smith.

Illinois Gov. Quinn's reelection race just got harder. A grand jury is looking into his anti-violence "slush fund" spending.

65 From the website "Stand Firm in Faith" "Occasionally, something comes out of the mainline churches that is so wrong, so delusional, so bizarre, so incomprehensible, that it makes one wonder whether hallucinogenic drugs are involved. Such is this statement from the Presbyterian Mission Agency Board (PCUSA), which had this response to a resolution submitted for this summer’s General Assembly that would address the growing persecution of Christians: The Church is called to prayer for those who suffer due to their faith. The Presbyterian Mission Agency reminds commissioners and advisory delegates the suffering of the church in the world is not only due to “persecution”, but there are many factors involved. These include geopolitical and economic factors. The General Assembly should consider all the factors that result in and contribute to sectarian violence. Use of the word “persecuted” mischaracterizes the nature of the maltreatment of Christians in the world, and in many cases would be an unhelpful exaggeration. [Emphasis added.] There are no words for how loathsome that statement is. Anathema!" David Fischler

A person's sexual preferences are a private matter, regardless. That's etiquette eons before PC bullshit. Forcing sexuality into Alinsky mode has nothing to do with love or respect for anything beyond grotesque abuses of pernicious power.


The  homosexual community and individuals within the USA have "more special" legal standing protections than heterosexuals.


A constitutional conservative could say that is no thanks to the revisionist likes of neo-you.name.its [neo-conservative, neo-liberal, noe-classical] -- the "in crowd" (gotta belong where the getting's good butter idjits) functioning under the Borg post-constitutional era. Resistance, futile, assimilated.


So get over the self inflicted butthurt, and go protest where homosexuality is illegal, or at least at borders in/surrounding Muslim regions if that's your evangelical call, to convert the h8ters of "open" life styles. 


Or admit you're full of yourselves, Gabe; because REAL problems like human trafficking and organized crime running US governance are beyond your personal and professional capacity to give a shit.


Oh, you know that we know that you know...

Especially when the "conservative" portion of "The Five" opined that banning Sterling for life, fining him the maximum $2.5 million allowed, and making clear he would be forced to "sell" the team wasn't enough. No; he will be stripped of the franchise with exactly $0.00 in compensation (really, a $2.5 million payment to the NBA and untold millions to the lawyers of both sides when he unsuccessfully sues for the "privilege" of being stripped of the franchise).

Cuban is the next one who will be stripped of his franchise, even before the Bucks' new owners will be forced to sell theirs at a $25 million profit in the fall of 2017 because they won't convince southeast Wisconsin to cough up $200 million $300 million $400 million for a new arena.

174 Back when one of the heroes of the gay community, Ellen! famously came out on her soon-to-be-off-the-air TV show, one of the episodes was about other gays pressuring her to only use "gay" businesses. Ellen's also the target of a Two Minutes Hate after she gave out SodaStream machines to everyone in her audience. (They're made in a factory in a "disputed territory" that employs about 500 "Palestinians" and pays them about 4 times what they'd make in Gaza, but Western liberals claim that's oppression).

176 homosexual activists have expressed concern that some people will interpret it as permission to "discriminate" against those whom they don't agree with or like. *** Like say bakers or photographers who don't want to participate in ceremonies that violate their religion views? Who knew in 2014 that the biggest political fight of the year wouldn't be about taxes, foreign policy or even social programs...but about whether Christians could be punished by the government for following their religion?

178 Hey, I've been meaning to relate another incidence of "concussive maintenance." A while back we got a printer at Wal-Mart, not the lowest-end, but close to. One where ink refills quickly cost more than the printer purchase. This model had a scanner — already have a scanner, but a 2nd could be handy — and stuff I never need, like Fax and ... document feeder. I've never had anything but problems with document feeders. But, for the price, I took it. About the day after the warranty expires, the printer quits booting up. It announces a jam in ... yes, of course... the never-been-used doc feeder! I open and close firmly every hatch and cover. I jiggle every component on the doc feed path. No change. Finally, I pick the printer off the table a couple of inches, and drop it. The error message remained but changed slightly, as if it had got further in booting up. So I drop it twice more, once impacting harder on the left side, again on the right. Printer comes up working like it was brand new. Itemized bill: Dropping printer...... $1.00 Knowing how hard & where to drop it: $99.00.

Why did it have to be called "marriage" See, "Because H8R" isn't a coherent argument. Yet that's what you get if you dare think it might not be a good idea. So the only logical conclusion is, gay marriage isn't about gay marriage at all. It's a primal scream directed at the rest of society. "Accept me!!! I am just like you....except I'm not!!!" Which is an absolutely shitty basis for public policy.

Buddy Smith, executive vice president of Tupelo-based American Family Association, offers his take on the sticker campaign. "It's not really a buying campaign, but it's a bully campaign," he says, "and it's being carried out by radical homosexual activists who intend to trample the freedom of Christians to live according to the dictates of scripture.

248 In regards to Benghazi, in addition to the other scandals of this administration, something that needs to be remembered is that Nixon was forced to resign from office for offenses that look like children pulling each other's hair by comparison. Why? Well I'm glad you asked. It turns out that fundamental change is good for some people. It is certainly good for politicians and the coutiers in the palaces of our rulers. $700 billion in the Emergency Economic Stabilization act that was said to be necessary to keep the country from going bankrupt, was in reality just a massive transfer of money into the hands of "investors" who had been caught on the wrong side of a scam bet that went wrong as a direct result of unintended consequences of actions by the government. The $1 trillion dollar Economic Stimulus. Where did that money go? Nobody knows. And nobody has ever had to account for that money. Nearly $2 trillion dollars did not just evaporate. It went to set up the basis for what is happening now with the rampant "crony capitalism" which is just a mild euphemism for wanton Washington corruption. A famous investor once said that self interest is the most powerful force in the universe. We are witnessing that now. We are subject to it. And that's why nobody is being held to account for the blatant, runaway corruption that is being perpetrated right under our noses.

I know for sure that most Americans don't like the courts overturning the will of the people (whether deserved or not). We tend to think that the people are supposed to be in the position to chose.

277 Mr. Black and I watched an ESPN show last night about pro baseball player Luis Tiant.  His career, his father's career and going back to the Cuba he left in '61.  It's a 2 hour program, and we've only watched half so far.  But the misery of Cuban life is acute in it.  He goes back to where he grew up to visit his two surviving aunts.  They talk about the hardships of living in Cuba.  How they are given "provisions" from the government for nearly everything....soap, toothpaste, etc., and the provisions only last 15 days out of each month.  The rest of the time, Cubans have to improvise without these necessities.  At one point, Luis Tiant goes to downtown Havana, where a large group of men are freely arguing, talking, exchanging ideas.  It's stated that it's one of the very few remaining places where "free speech" is allowed.  But there's one caveat.  They are only allowed to talk about baseball.  All other topics, politics, etc., are explicitly off limits.

It's a strong, underlying theme that Cuba was once so vibrant, and Cubans know what's been taken from them over the decades since Castro's revolution.  Everything is now so run down and everyone is so poor.  Communism.  It sickens me to think there are Americans who think this is what they want.

I would suspect Gabe's reply would be that, Mr. Smith is free to live out the dictates of his Christian faith and conscience at home and at church, but if he offers a product or service to the public, then he must abide by the rules of the marketplace and serve all comers.  I don't particularly like the "don't want to bake cakes for gays?  Then don't start a bakery!" argument, but that's what it seems to boil down to.

 

I suspect Gabe also dislikes Smith's characterization of homosexuality as a sin.  Nobody likes to be told they're sinful.

Therefore, when I am in Mississippi I simply will not patronize any business that displays one of these blue stickers. The politically correct fascism has gone on long enough.

322 I wonder if the OK murderer had taken some other illegal drugs before his execution. And the mix made his execution go poorly. Of course, that's unpossible since everyone knows that no illegal drugs are ever smuggled into to prisons, much less used by the prisoners... Still, I'd like to see blood work done. Also, screw him. He shot a girl then buried her alive.

326 So if you don't put a blue/rainbow sticker in your store window will you story be targeted by the militant gays and have a mysterious fire in the middle of the night, or will people call and threaten you or your family? Because of course, nobody asks questions like "Are you gay?" when you go in for dry cleaning or have dinner somewhere. They're not going to say, "Are you gay?" when you go into buy a donut or French Cruller at the local bakery. It's simply about forcing people to make wedding cakes or make their lives miserable. I don't really feel a need to know whether people are gay; I can probably figure that out by knowing them for a certain about of time. Case in point- Yesterday I went to a clergy covenant meeting and an Episcopal Priest presented portions of a video about R.S. Thomas who was a brilliant Welsh poet and and Anglican Clergyman serving small rural parishes. The video contained beautiful pictures of an island off the coast of Wales and there was another older man on the video giving a thoughtful analysis of some of Thomas' poem. Before the video started the Episcopal Priest in the group said about the man analyzing the poems, "He was a gay Anglican Priest". Why did I need to know that? He didn't announce it himself in the video as that would have been completely unrelated to the poetry that he was talking about The poet wasn't gay.. Hey, I know gays can be very bright and sensitive people who are interested in all kinds of things and do many things well. It That's hardly revelatory. I've known it for years as have the other people in the group, She didn't have to educate us. That he was gay neither detracted from my opinion of his analysis of poetry nor added to it. My goodness; We have someone in our clergy group who is gay which we've all known for years and we all love him and respect him for who is as a person and minister.I just thought it irrelevant to bring that before a video about a Welsh poet.

You cannot ask to a ghey male to be sympathetic to what happens to a female, can you? The whole point of homosexuality is to be self sufficient from half of the world population.

Any decent person would. And of course, gay men have mothers and sisters and friends who are women so of course they're not living a life without women. Of course there may be gay men who don't like woman. There are plenty of straight men who don't like many of them either.

I agree with the other guy, those stories do not make a difference.

There are some people that shift their whole being on themselves, therefore if abortion of a perfectly healthy child is threatened, it is bad for their own self worth because it might hint that they are not that important after all. Then there are other people who recognize, regardless of the fact that they have children themselves, that it is not about them but it is about another life and simply shift the balance from themselves to another being.

In my small experience, all the people who were in favor of abortion always and in any case were extremely self-centered and selfish, even tho they liked to talk of themselves as generous.

Same of people who were against abortion, they were the most willing to give a helping hand when needed.

Only a straight man can understand 'the other half'.

Your other half is not your your pedicure, your distant cousin or your granny. Even straight men who end up alone/single/without a woman experience interaction with women in a way that ghey man do not.

I rest my case, it is just enough that you notice the pure and unadulterated hatred that many lesbians have for males or male body parts, it is really unlikely that the opposite is not true for gheys.

Think about it, if less women are around, males turn to other males.

346 Meh. Putting up a blue sticker isn't discrimination against Christians or others who hold traditional views on marriage. The proper comparison would be if a blue-sticker baker refused to bake cakes that would be served at baptism celebrations or similar. Which should be legal, just like refusing to bake cakes for gay weddings. I really don't see the big deal. Put a Christian symbol on your window if you want to advertise to Christians in particular---lots of businesses already do.

347 "I'm sorry; I don't understand what this means. Are you saying that in order to understand women you have to either be a woman or have sex with them? If so, why? Or is it that you have to live with them?"

Mars and Venus, Ying and Yang, positive and negative.

Whoever ends up in this dichotomy (which cannot be reproduced with a relative, a dear friend etc), can fully understand 'the other'.

From the beginning of times regardless of latitude, males and females have been complementary. Modern psychology is founded on the 'little girl watching her mother and her relationship with the father' and vice versa for males.

They can fuck a cow for all I care but regardless of their claims to 'understand' women, no thanks, they don't.

When you see a ghey talking about women, they are talking about a caricature of woman (over-exaggerated gestures, make up, clothing), probably the one they have in mind when they role play with their partner. A heterosexual male would never speak of a woman like that, even the ones that claim to hate women. At the end of the day just for the sake of being heterosexual, they must buy the product. A ghey man does not.

Final evidence, their complete disregard of motherhood when they selfishly buy children from surrogates. It is beyond me how nobody ever calls them out on that. For centuries all sorts of pediatricians, doctors and specialists have stressed how important is the mother figure to a child, immediately after birth, but yet we have a baby market that manufactures children for a category of people that is completely self-absorbed. Granted, even heterosexuals such as Robert DeNiro who had children from a surrogate is disgusting to me and he is obviously one full of issues. It is not a coincidence that he is also a die hard leftist.

I would say the same about 2 lesbians depriving a child of a father. Same condemnation.

If this is not the true war on women, I don't know what it is.

348 When you see a gay talking about women, they are talking about a caricature of a woman ----- The irony of this sentence cannot be overstated. You're complaining about gays talking about a caricature of women...and using a caricature of gays to do it. Gay misogynists exist, but there are a plenty more straight misogynists. Being married to someone of the opposite sex doesn't make you understand the entire gender---BEING a given sex doesn't make you understand the whole gender!

349 "And what happens if you're a man who was married for years and then came out as a gay person? Does that mean who don't understand women?"

I don't believe in this bullshit of 'I was born this way' and later I found out I was ghey.

Science is against them, literature is against them. The most famous homosexual in history is Oscar Wilde. I quote from Wikipedia who quotes from a reliable source.

'According to Daniel Mendelsohn, Wilde, who had long alluded to Greek Love, was "initiated into homosexual sex" by Ross, while his "marriage had begun to unravel after his wife's second pregnancy, which left him physically repelled".'

The majority of homosexuals are repelled by the female body or in general are pretty nasty toward women (there are several examples of it, they merely hide it well and treat women as the useful idiots that they are), others just find it easy to find sexual gratification in men because they are more available, more willing to do anything, less picky etc. Your example does not hold ground since homosexuality is a (poor) choice. You do not 'happen' to become ghey, you simply decide women are too disgusting (especially if they are not 25 anymore and do not look like Meghan Fox).

Want more evidence? the amount of 'women' who 'become' lesbian are all the kind that was repeatedly beaten up and abused by men. Yet nobody ever questions that this is the only reason why they turned to other women.

The rest is politics. They ghey mafia produced mountains of money and unlimited power for their adepts, it was a win-win situation for them.

They are literally worshiped and have all the importance and lavish admiration they craved for. They would be willing to say or do anything to stay in power. They have surpassed blacks in the aggrieved minority chart, while having had none of the tribulations black people had.

351 Really? You have some evidence that the majority of women who identify as lesbian have a history of abuse greater than their straight counterparts? Or that gay men hate women? Because the most hateful acts I've ever known to be committed against a woman ---rape and murder---tend to be committed by straight men.

Posted by: Jenny Hates Her Phone at April 30, 2014 05:55 AM (4Ryku)

352 361, you are free to practice your ghey worshiping. I simply refuse to join the church.

"Gay misogynists exist, but there are a plenty more straight misogynists."

Considering ghey man are 1% of the population and straight men are roughly 49% of the population, of course there might be MORE hetero misogynists, but as I said, at the end of the day the hetero misogynists buys the product. A ghey does not. Feel free to underestimate the power of sex, the history of humanity tells us otherwise.

If, as you say, ghey misogynists are few and far between, how come nobody from the ever talkative ghey community came out to distance themselves from the words of Dan Savage, who said that the female vulva looked like canned meat splattered on the ground (or something like that).

I guess it would be easy for the ghey you praise so much to put this idiot at his place.

I know if the same sentence was said by a conservative straight men he would have been crucified.

Care to explain to me what do we gain from shielding gheys from all sorts of criticism? Care to explain what you want to achieve by relentlessly  defending them?

Then hope that 100% of hetero males become ghey so the world will be perfect then and you will be surrounded by millions of hair stylists.

I am done with you since you are just a worshiping star struck useful idiot.

I have never said such a thing, however from recent events we gather than thinking bad about blacks equates the slavery days, I can safely assume that thinking bad about heterosexual women (or even men) can be equated to be misogynists or anti-heterosexuals

"If you'd like to share where you get your impression of gay men as misogynists, I'd like to see that---unless you pulled it out of your own ass, which I kind of suspect."

If you weren't so star struck about the gheys as you are you would know by now that every negative press about them is very well covered.

However I make this effort for you, in hope you would think twice about accusing others of 'pulling data out of the ass'

I agree with you on all of your 3 micro points. However, as to your unstated macro point (that the new law is wrong), I emphatically disagree. Businesses should have the liberty to refuse to do business with anyone they don't want to do business with. The sticker campaign is the perfect response to that kind of free market. If some businesses don't want certain kinds of trade, then it is great that there are other businesses willing to pick up the slack. Customers can makes their choices accordingly and let the market work.

I recognize that that kind of model will not work for some kinds of businesses, the water company for example, but those situations should be treated as the exception, not the rule.

++++

The quote from Buddy Smith is as follows:
Buddy Smith, executive vice president of Tupelo-based American Family Association, offers his take on the sticker campaign.

"It's not really a buying campaign, but it's a bully campaign," he says, "and it's being carried out by radical homosexual activists who intend to trample the freedom of Christians to live according to the dictates of scripture.

"They don't want to hear that homosexuality is sinful behavior – and they wish to silence Christians and the church who dare to believe this truth."

Smith offers a word of caution for those who do business with facilities posting the decal supporting homosexual activism. "If you do that, you are agreeing with these businesses that Christians no longer have the freedom to live out the dictates of their Christian faith and conscience," he tells OneNewsNow.

Buddy is objecting to the sticker campaign. The sticker campaign is designed so that businesses who wish to advertise that they want the business of homosexuals, can put the sticker in their windows. Homosexuals and others who are supportive can choose to prefer businesses with the stickers.

I disagree with Buddy, in that he seems to think that it is objectionable for some businesses to make it known that they are friendly to homosexuals and want their business. I don't see what his problem is. If businesses should be free to say that they do not want to bake a cake for a gay wedding, then other businesses should also be free to let it be known that they would be happy to bake that cake. If you got the green, they want your business.
