Michael Rogers gay activist is outing gays on his blog
http://blogactive.blogspot.com /

If they are working for Republicans who are supporting the marrige amendment or support George Bush. He outed Foley.

He's asking for comments at:
blogACTIVE@blogactive.com

What do you think?

1. More power to him. I have low tolerance for collaborators.
And they are getting off easier than they deserve.

2. I say: Go for it!
For those gay people who say it's wrong, don't think for one nanosecond that those closeted repukes wouldn't out you in a heartbeat if it meant getting ahead.

4. I'm not sure I like it
I understand his argument is that these are people who are already out of the closet, no? Which I guess I can sort of see, he's just publicizing something that is already known.

But it still strikes me as a bit of a stunt.

5. Good for him!
A Bush enabler is a Bush enabler & I spit upon my brothers that would even try to support him. A Gay man that is republican in this day & age has to be a sadist!

6. Here's more............
Take Jonathan Tolman, for example. Tolman is a senior staffer for US Senator James Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma. Inhofe has gone so far as to publicly state he would not hire any gay staffers. Technically, Tolman works for the Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works which Inhofe chairs. One of the leaders of the push for the constitutional amendment to restrict marriage to one man/one woman, Inhofe has made some incredibly homophobic and inflammatory comments. Yet Tolman continues to work and support his boss. Michael Rogers, one of the two activists outing gay staffers, set his sites on Tolman and what Rogers considers Tolmans hypocrisy. On his web blog, www.michaelrogers.us , Rogers calls on his readers to call Tolman and tell him what you think of gay men working for right wing homophobes on the hill. Tolmans direct phone line is even posted.

Another target on Rogers blog is Jay Timmons, Executive Director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. What is so astounding is that Timmons is an out, gay man who works day in and day out to elect people who would deny us our rights. Rogers provides Timmons direct line as well as the NRSCs 800 number in case calling DC is long distance.

This guy sounds mad.

7. Splotchy Bill, who outed a judge last week
was so mad his complexion almost evened out! In fact, Rogers called him on the outing and O'Really lied and lied and lied about it. Three times he denied any outing and then he had the nerve to beep out the names Rogers was naming. Duplicity, thy name is O'Lielly.

10. I'll bet Michael Rogers was the squeeler in school too!!!!
What they do or don't do about their sexuality is none of his business.

12. It's about their hypocrisy...
not how they have sex.

When Clinton was being targeted for his infidelity, some of his most vocal critics were men who were guilty of the very same thing they were decrying.

They were raging hypocrites who deserved to have their bullshit "outed".

I can totally understand why gays and lesbians would want to "out" those hypocritical gays and lesbians who actively work against the community.

If I knew a vocal anti-choice person who had had an abortion and yet continued to speak out afterwards against women having that right, I would be hard-pressed NOT to let the world know about her.

13. Then he should address it to them personally----
Why should he stoop to the level of the Clinton haters?

Someone has to stop this stuff!

11. Michael Rogers is probably getting sick of reading stuff like this

http://www.cornwallseawaynews.com/index.cfm?INCLUDE=gue ...

The Real Agenda of Pride Cornwall: Acceptance

The worst of it...

"By the goodness and grace of God, the Western worlds moral standard is still based upon the Word of God. Whether or not the gay community accepts this fact, its their problem and sin. Pride Cornwall wants to be the exception to the rule. Why should we allow that? We do not allow others that choose a sinful habit or lifestyle to get by, or get off the hook, do we? We hold them accountable, and demand change. This is true of the drunkard, the thief, the wife beater, etc., and should be of the homosexual community also. If the gay community wants acceptance, then they need to repent of their sinful, wicked lifestyle and begin to conform to a Biblical lifestyle."


A God Damn fundie letter. If these Republican loving gay people are helping these evil FAKE Christians then maybe they should conform to a biblical lifestyle instead.
