James Dobson makes the case to overturn DOMA; Equality NC, ACLU looking at challenging Amendment One

By: Thursday May 17, 2012 7:24 am

Tee hee. I was waiting to hear the reaction of Daddy D to last week’s statement by the President on marriage equality. James Dobson, the founder of the professional bigotry and discrimination organization Focus On the Family, and currently president and founder of James Dobson’s Family Talk, laid into President Obama in predictable fashion on the [...]

Associated Press nails report on Amendment One vote!

By: Monday May 7, 2012 8:02 pm

This report on Amendment One from the Associated Press is excellent. And I know everyone is going to be talking about the elderly man in the beginning of the clip. What he says is astoundingly ignorant but so indicative of the other side and also the reason why we will win when it’s all said [...]

The N.C. Amendment, the Carolina, and the Holocaust

By: Sunday May 6, 2012 3:59 pm

News that the neo-Nazi group World Wide White Pride had endorsed Amendment One — the Bigot Ballot — serves as a reminder that even the Holocaust did not eliminate the worst of irrational, religion-based prejudices. The WWWP website routinely re-hashes WWII history, from a point of view sympathetic to Hitler and his aims. It therefore [...]

Woman arrested after caught redhanded removing anti-Amendment One signs

By: Saturday May 5, 2012 11:58 am

“I didn’t feel like I was stealing signs at the time . . . I just looked at it as picking up trash along the side of the road.” These were the words of Heidi Thompson, who was arrested in North Carolina on Wednesday and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor and [...]

Rev. Graham should not endorse Amendment One shuck and jive

By: Thursday May 3, 2012 11:07 pm

Using religion to distract is the unkindest cut of them all so why should we be surprised that Amendment One supporters in North Carolina are doing just that. That has been their modus operandi since the beginning, but now they have stooped exceedingly low. Legendary pastor Billy Graham has endorsed Amendment One in full page [...]

Amendment One supporter urinates on anti-Amendment One sign

By: Thursday May 3, 2012 12:22 pm

From my online buddies Jeremy Hooper and Louis Marinelli,  comes proof that some folks are getting out of hand in voicing their support for Amendment One in North Carolina – the bill which would not only outlaw marriage equality (which is already outlawed in the state as it is) but would cause chaos with unmarried [...]

Pastor Patrick Wooden created lies about gay sex because of his ‘religious views’

By: Wednesday May 2, 2012 6:26 pm

During a recent Leadership Triangle forum regarding Amendment One (which would wreak havoc in North Carolina for unmarried couples and domestic violence laws if passed) blogger Pam Spaulding had a very interesting conversation with one of the leading supporters of this amendment, Pastor Patrick Wooden. Pastor Wooden of Upper Room Church of God in Christ in [...]

GOProud’s Chris Barron: Amendment One is simple bigotry – NC is better than that

By: Monday April 30, 2012 3:49 pm

Christopher R. Barron is co-founder of GOProud and serves as its Chief Strategist. GOProud is often derided in the LGBT community; as a gay conservative organization (of the free market, limited government variety) it is seen as reflexively supportive of conservative policies and politicians that come at the expense of LGBT rights.  I disagree with [...]

Vote for MarriageNC ad filled with misrepresentations and false views

By: Monday April 9, 2012 9:30 pm

Vote for MarriageNC has come out with another ad in an attempt to push that awful anti-marriage equality amendment, Amendment One, in North Carolina: These folks sound reasonable, don’t they? Especially the African-American pastor Patrick Wooden. Don’t buy it. Wooden’s comments are sprinkled throughout the video, but I took note at 1:13 – 1:55 of [...]

Deconstructed: Vote for Marriage NC ad makes the case against Amendment One

By: Saturday March 24, 2012 6:42 pm

The ad above is from Vote for MarriageNC, the group attempting to pass Amendment One in North Carolina. Amendment One would place an anti-marriage equality amendment in that state’s constitution. My guess is that by using ordinary people, Vote for MarriageNC is trying to convey a “grassroots” message. However, in many ways, the ad actually [...]
