“The family is threatened in many places by a defection of human nature.”
“Marriage and the family are institutions that must be promoted and defended from every possible misrepresentation of their true nature, since whatever is injurious to them is injurious to society itself.”
“[Heterosexuality] permit[s] the full development of the human person.”
Yeah I’m just going to leave this right here.
If Prochoicers care so much about women’s rights, why don’t they care about the women being killed in the womb? Those girls don’t get a choice. Those girls are the ones being oppressed. Stick up for them, they are the ones who need your help the most.
oh pro-life people
I love how yall are attempting to limit (mostly) women’s rights (unconstitutional) for religious reasons (unconstitutional again) and have the audacity to claim that what you’re doing is pro-woman.
Nope. You’re pro-patriarchy, and pro-religion, that’s all.
Like, nice job trying to catch us in a hypocrisy while ignoring the glaring blinding brightness of your own.

Local Pastor Calls For Death of ‘Queers & Homosexuals’
Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church — located at 3283 Providence Mill Rd, Maiden, NC 28650 — is seen here from a service posted to the church’s website dated May 13, 2012 calling death of “queers and homosexuals.”
I had to listen to this 3 times to get myself to believe what I was hearing. I’ve done something I’ve only ever done once before. I’ve taken the time to transcribe his “sermon.”
…of our President getting up and saying that it was alright for two women to marry, or two men to marry. I tell you right now I was disappointed bad. But I tell you right there as sorry as you can get, the Bible’s against it, God’s against it, I’m against it, and if you got any sense you’re against it. I had a way, I’ve figured a way out. A way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers, but I couldn’t get it past the Congress. Build a great big large fence, 150 or 100 miles long, put all the lesbians in there, fly over and drop some food. Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals. And have that fence electrified till they can’t get out. Feed them. And you know what? In a few years they’ll die out. You know why? They can’t reproduce. If a man ever has a young’en, praise god it will be the first. All of these… You can say amen, I’m going to preach the hell out of all of them. Hey I’ll tell you right now, somebody say who you going to vote for? I ain’t gonna vote for a baby killer and a homosexual lover. You said did you mean to say that? You better believe I did. God have mercy it makes me puking sick to think about…I don’t even know whether you ought to say this in the pulpit or not. Can you imagine kissing some man?
This person, man of God, spiritual leader, pastor, actually stood in his pulpit and called for people to be put in internment camps and killed because of their sexuality. I’ve heard a lot of homophobic propaganda lately with every group calling themselves “Family” something or the other going on the attack. Their level of hatred and intolerance is something I’ve heard so much that while outraged, I seldom have a physical reactions.
The words of this pastor caused a chill to run over my body. Maybe because I had a visual of my friends suffering and dying in prison camp, with electrified fences. I know something like this would never happen, but the fact that his congregation felt so moved as to say “amen” makes me realize that there are those who would not be averse to such human suffering.
His crass and moronic argument of homosexuals becoming extinct if they were all killed is so typical of this kind of hatemonger. I know this is where I usually take the time to point out that people like him are not the norm. However right now I just can’t. He does not represent a fringe minority of Christians. The Christians who are kind, loving, and accepting are outnumbered by assholes like him. Those with the loudest, most hateful voices are well supported, well funded, and very public. They spread a cancerous message of hate that has yet to be effectively challenged by Christians who aren’t homophobic.

As if adolescence wasn’t already hard enough, LGBT students in Louisiana have a new reason to fear for their existence.
In a 5-1 vote on Thursday, a state Senate committee overwhelmingly approved bill 217, which if passed into law would give publically funded charter schools the right to refuse to admit students based on sexual orientation, among other irrational and vile reasons such as English language skills.
The Advocate (not the LGBT publication of the same name) reports:
“State Sen. A.G. Crowe [pictured left], R-Slidell, said his bill is designed to ensure that executive branch agencies and local governments stop including bans on discrimination against characteristics not listed in state law as a condition for private companies to do business with their agencies… On the other side, state Sen. Ed Murray, the only “no” in the 5-1 vote by the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations committee, said the possibility of SB217 becoming law and negating the anti-discriminatory prohibitions in charter school contracts is “really scary.”
Though Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal refused to comment on the matter, his press secretary, Frank Collins, wrote in an email (or rather, his Tea Party propaganda machine): “We’re against discrimination, but we don’t believe in special protections or rights.”
Ah Louisiana. Only you could be racist and heterosexist all at once and call it non-discrimination.
Cool…when are we gonna start that?
Well shit, I wonder why.
The Pope Song — Tim Minchin.
Sing it, Tim.
I fucking love this song.
So my mom left her facebook open and I found this gem. Not too sure what to think about it.
What Christian message was in The Hunger Games because I missed that one.
