By: Monday July 23, 2012 3:58 pm

In an apparent fit of road rage, Preserve Marriage Washington Executive Board member and Washington state legislator Rep. Matt Shea (R-Spokane Valley) pulled a loaded gun on the driver of another car. Preserve Marriage Washington is the group trying to repeal Washington’s new marriage equality law via Referendum 74.

Preserve Marriage Washington Leaves no Doubt That Narrow Religious Views Drive Their Campaign, Not Sound Public Policy

By: Wednesday May 2, 2012 2:43 pm

Washington voters may not be aware, but to Preserve Marriage Washington they are a “mission field” being given a last chance “to repent, to turn this back to a God-honoring state” by putting Referendum 74 on the ballot. In fact Washington isn’t just any mission field, but “the darkest mission field, the most black place [...]

Matt Shea {{{HEARTS}}} Rick Santorum

By: Wednesday February 15, 2012 5:56 am

Rep. Matt Shea with Rick Santorum My my, what an eager expression on Matt Shea‘s face! Although he’s been trading winks with militia types and Paulites, I think Matt’s heart may really belong to “Man-on-dog” Ricky! Caption suggestions for this photo? Santorum made a campaign stop in Washington on Monday, taking time to commune with [...]

Last night the Washington state House passed HB 1649 by a vote of 58 to 39.  If signed into law, this bill would recognize as a valid domestic partnership in Washington state a legal union of two persons, including a marriage, that was validly formed in another jurisdiction and that is substantially equivalent to a [...]

Washington state’s radical-right uses the fetus as a political football

By: Sunday August 15, 2010 9:36 pm

There was already plenty of bad blood between Pastor Joe Fuiten, a long-time adversary of choice and LGBT equality, and other fixtures of Washington state’s radical-right.  Last year, Fuiten calculated (correctly) that the Washington electorate would approve Washington’s Domestic Partnership Expansion Bill of 2009 by approving Referendum 71 at the polls.  Fuiten stated as much [...]

You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?  –  Jesus All this news about militant heterosexualists fraudulently “signing” R-71 petition declarations with Larry Stickney’s signature stamp got me thinking: where had I seen pen-wielding people mulling over the backs of petitions?  Aah yes, [...]

The Video That Larry Stickney Doesn’t Want You To See

By: Wednesday June 24, 2009 11:00 am

The anti-child, anti-family folks at Protect Marriage Washington (Larry Stickney) and its non-cooperative competitor Faith & Freedom PAC (Gary Randall) have “released” a video.  It has the catchy title “R-71: Lawmakers Encourage Christian Participation!” and features state senator Val Stevens and representative Matt Shea. I’d post the video here, but apparently they don’t want this [...]
