Wherever she goes in the future, spewing her National Organization for Marriage hate against LGBT Americans, Maggie Gallagher now knows there is a pie in her face in her future, thanks to GetEQUAL:
At a Congressional hearing on “Defending Marriage” in the Subcommittee on the Constitution, GetEQUAL – a national lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender civil rights organization using direct action and nonviolent civil disobedience tactics – presented Maggie Gallagher, one of those testifying at the hearing and the board chairman of the National Organization for Marriage, with the “First Annual Anita Bryant Award for Unbridled and Unparalleled Bigotry.” Competition for the prize was fierce, with Ms. Gallagher out-bigoting such notable figures as Senator John McCain, Michelle Bachmann, Pastor Rick Warren, and Sarah Palin.
Here is the originating award, made to bigot and homo-hater Anita Bryant in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1977:
GetEQUAL’s Michael Dixon presented NOM’s peripatetic hater with the certificate today, noting that it can be redeemed at any time but not at a time of the recipient’s choosing:
“I have seen the video of the four ‘self-proclaimed homosexuals’ who delivered the pie to Anita Bryant in 1977,” said Michael Dixon, a GetEQUAL activist. “It is truly an honor to walk in their footsteps as GetEQUAL recognizes and rewards the tireless efforts of Ms. Gallagher – the woman who has picked up the mantle of hatred and prejudice from Ms. Bryant – and worked so hard to promote bigotry and discrimination against an entire class of American citizens. I hope we can unite her with her pie as soon as possible – I have always believed that bigots should get their just desserts.”
GetEQUAL will deliver the pie prize during a future public appearance by Ms. Gallagher, to ensure that she is able to celebrate the award publicly, in front of an audience. The exact moment of delivery is unknown at this time.
