Is Russell Johnson’s ignorance credible, or was it manufactured to hide somthing unsavory?

By: Friday March 18, 2011 2:27 pm

On March 15th the Washington state Senate Committee on Government Operations and Tribal Relations & Elections heard public testimony on the bill updating the Uniform Parentage Act of 2002 (HB 1267) by “clarifying and expanding the rights and obligations of state registered domestic partners and other couples related to parentage”.  The bill would: Expand and [...]

Youth Revolution’s new video: Christianity down the barrel of a gun

By: Saturday May 22, 2010 11:00 am

Whoever called Jesus the Prince of Peace must have been nuts.  At least that’s what Russell Johnson at Youth Revolution seems to imply in YR’s new promo video.  Apparently certain of His “Judeo-Christian” followers think we should emphasize (enforce?) political and religious views with gun blasts.  (Listen also for the miracle of Revolutionary-era typewriters!) Johnson, [...]

Washington’s Family Policy Radio is off the air

By: Wednesday February 3, 2010 7:49 pm

The Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW), a local affiliate of Focus on the Family and Family Research Council, has been broadcasting a weekly half-hour radio show since at least May of 2009.  The show has largely been used to promote FPIW’s anti-gay agenda.  According to their broadcaster, the American Christian Network, the show’s Wednesday [...]

Joseph Backholm invites you to "poke around"

By: Wednesday December 16, 2009 12:26 am

I’m not much into people with negative personalities, but I realize that several man-centric readers have expressed an appreciation for Joseph Backholm’s look and twinkitude.  Thus I feel it only fair to inform you that he’s got a new video up inviting folks to “poke around”.  I’m sure it is entirely coincidental that he also [...]

By: Friday November 6, 2009 7:36 pm

A new organization called Youth Revolution popped up in Washington recently.  I’ve written a bit about them here.  YR’s Executive Director is none other than Russell Johnson, Director of Governmental Affairs for the Focus on the Family/Family Research Council affiliate Family Policy of Institute of Washington.  FPIW is the local organization that helped funnel over [...]

Who is recruiting Washington’s children?

By: Monday October 19, 2009 11:00 pm

Radical-right anti-equality folk are fond of claiming that gays are out to recruit children.  Protect Marriage Washington goes so far as to use the slogan “protect children” and infer that the mere mention of gay people in a non-critical way to children will poison their little minds and pervert them on the spot.   I [...]

The Approve 71 radio ad, and advice from our opponents

By: Friday October 9, 2009 12:15 pm

The Referendum 71 broadcast media campaign is on in Washington!  There is MUCH more to come, but I can’t tell you about it yet.  In the mean time, have a listen to this new radio ad.  Which voter cohort do you think is the target? Donate Recently I listened in on a different radio broadcast [...]

Protect Marriage Washington’s Full Frontal Fraud?

By: Thursday September 3, 2009 10:00 am

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 Washington Hate Coalition: What a Bunch of Whiners

By: Monday April 6, 2009 9:32 pm

I got emails Monday from Washington Hate Coalition members Russell Johnson (of scare emails fame, right) and from Larry “I’m a failure, hire me!” Stickney (left).  They were whining that the Washington State House Ways & Means Committee changed the scheduled date for the hearing on SB 5688, the Domestic Partnership Expansion Bill of 2009. [...]

Washington’s ANTI-Equality Lobby Day – with pictures!

By: Thursday March 19, 2009 11:04 pm

Dominic Holden over at The Stranger‘s SLOG has it right.  He’s calling today’s anti-equality rally in Olympia a Last Gasp.  The rally was organized specifically to show opposition to the Domestic Partnership Expansion Bill of 2009.  The bill has already passed in the Senate, and has enough co-sponsors in the House to all but assure [...]
