this is outrageous.

If you feel similar outrage, please take action here:

on edit: corrected wording to make more sense of how I feel about this.

2. How pathetic
I thought Islamic extremists were our greatest threat. Oh, that was yesterday.

6. I'm glad he thinks I'm that much of a threat.
He can bring it -- if he's sure I won't give him "the gay" that is.

:rofl:

7. bigot
This is an insane old man who needs to do everyone a favor and retire. My morals are to pray that people like him rid their hearts of so much hate and bigotry.

10. Sounds slanderous to me.
Is it time for gay people to start sueing these bigots when they publically generalize all GLBT people.

Are quotes like "gays are an abomination" or "gays are immoral" or similar bigoted generalizations slanderous?

Methinks it's time for gay people to start sueing.

14. If such a thing were possible
it would happen in the UK first, not here.

Here you have to prove that you were harmed in some real way. It's not enough that your feelings were hurt. Over there the rules are apparently much, much more in your favor.

If it hasn't been done successfully there, then it's highly unlikely that it could ever be done here.

:(

12. I was just thinking the same thing, except it was about Fundies.
"Anything goes?!" That's only if one equates sex with sin. Obviously any rational standard of morality puts anyone persecuted by assholes like this way ahead of assholes like this.

13. If by "America" he means...
...the ultra-conservative, up tight, authoritarian, homogeneous, emotionally and sexually repressed, and utterly boring vision of America that most of these people have; then yeah, acceptance of gays is its greatest threat.

So, pride parade anyone?

16. Utah state senator (Buttars) to lose his committee chairmanship after homophobic diatribe.
:hi: I think he should be fired myself, but I'm glad he's being punished.
