Dogs don't moo = no to domestic partnerships. WTF?

Please be kidding about this, Focus on the Family...



James Dobson's Colorado Springs-based ministry stands firmly against same-sex marriage, gay rights initiatives and, now, mooing puppies.

On Tuesday, Focus unveiled its new "straight" puppy Web site, www.no-moo-lies.com, featuring a basset hound named Sherman, who barks as biology intended. During a news conference, a Focus employee dressed in a dog suit, who serves as a mascot at the group's visitors center, made a brief appearance.

"Dogs aren't born mooing, and people aren't born gay," a Focus news release stated.


Really, people--how does this affect you, such that you need to go to such, well, ludicrous lengths to oppose domenstic partnerships in Colorado? Frankly, I think it's just petty and mean.

But then again, I'm reminded of what Jesus said about homosexuality. Which was...um... Oh, that's right--he didn't say anything about it, did he? But I'm pretty sure I do remember him saying something about treating people the way you want to be treated.

1. People should flood that theocratic fascist idiot's
headquarters with the "Focus on Your Own Damn Family" bumperstickers and buttons, THAT might actually get his attention. What an idiot. People are going hungry, homeless, and/or without health care and all this so-called "Christian" group can do is this bullshit. What would Jesus do, indeed.

2. This Focus commercial is in response to pro-gay campaign ad

The campaigns star is a puppy named Norman who says moo instead of woof. Campaign organizers said Normans story is a metaphor for gay people. The Springs are seen nationally as a battleground of social issues, said Bobby Rauzon, a spokesman for the ad campaign, the Gazette reported. The ads will appear only in Colorado Springs, home to Focus on the Family, an anti-gay conservative Christian group. The idea is to stimulate discussion, said Mary Lou Makepeace, director of the Gay & Lesbian Fund for Colorado, which is based in Colorado Springs and funded by the Gill Foundation.

Here's the link to the pro-gay commercial. It may be slow loading but it is neat:

3. Thanks
At least that web site makes a little more sense now.

By the way, we did a new bumper sticker recently on this general theme...
