One Battle Won, Gay Rights Activists Shift Sights
nytimes.com ^ | 12/20/2010 | Sheryl Gay Stolberg

Posted on 12/20/2010 9:51:09 AM PST by massmike

As gay people around the country reveled on Sunday in the historic Senate vote to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell,” a liberal media watchdog group said it planned to announce on Monday that it was setting up a “communications war room for gay equality” in an effort to win the movement’s next and biggest battle: for a right to same-sex marriage.

The new group, Equality Matters, grew out of Media Matters, an organization backed by wealthy liberal donors — including prominent gay philanthropists — that has staked its claim in Washington punditry with aggressive attacks on Fox News and conservative commentators like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

It will be run by Richard Socarides, a former domestic policy adviser to President Bill Clinton who has been deeply critical of President Obama’s record on gay rights. A well-known gay journalist, Kerry Eleveld, the Washington correspondent for The Advocate, will leave that magazine in January to edit the new group’s Web site, equalitymatters.org, which is to go online Monday morning.

It would almost be worth it to surrender on the same sex marriage agenda item, so gays jumped to the next item: sex with kids.

The “gay” agenda is the Left agenda, it has NOTHING to do with the betterment of anyone (gay or not!)... all “progressive” policies are designed to create turmoil and chaos, and solve nothing (”solutions” ALWAYS impose gradual tyranny!). In fact DADT worked too well (did not create enough conflict)... so it had to be repealed! More at: http://redneckoblogger.blogspot.com/

Keep it up Homos. One day you will go to far, even for the milquetoast middle. That’s gonna be a bad day for the Queer Nation.

That has ALWAYS been part of their agenda...

I agree with my brother who yesterday said that the homosexuals can force their way into the barracks, but the old time-honored retaliation by their fellow soldiers will make it very uncomfortable. I remember what we did to a homosexual years ago in the service when we were approached for perverted sex in our barracks, and it was the LAST TIME we were bothered. Period.

Somethings the social engineers will never change no matter how much they try.

Maybe so but the minute they are threatened in any way there will be an investigation. There will be investigation after investigation. Every time the gay blades call fowl - the PC and gay organizations will be on it like gravy on rice. Investigations - possible litigation's, it's going to be a bloody mess because gays are demented in the first place.

“Maybe so but the minute they are threatened in any way there will be an investigation.”

A lot of things can happen at night . . . in the dark . . . when there are NO witnesses . . . I’ve been in a barracks when that happened. No witnesses. Blankets leave no marks. Gotta’ sleep some time.

Yep, one thing the fags seem to forget, that for every one of them there are 96-98 of us.

If they go too far over the line, the push back will be severe.

Think about the mooselimbs and the fags, the muzzies are closet fags but in public they kill them.

So far, the mushy middle in America has been pushed and poked and has gone along with the queer folks agenda, but if the line is crossed........

They KNOW tghey have greater rigfhts and protections afforded them for their CHOSEN BEHAVIOR...Now they want the government to make all people say and think that they are good. They are after government enforced legitimization. Cowards will elt them get this...I will never give it to them. Theirs is a wolrd of confusion and moral destruction as well as eventual destruction of the most important building block of civilization...the family.

They lose in the end...but for now we live the hell they cause.

There is no conceivable set of circumstances under which homosexual conduct is anything other than morally reprehensible. That’s my position now, and it will continue to be my position because it’s the truth. If it costs me a star, it costs me a star.

first time connected race and gender to sexual orientation under the banner of civil rights.

This was a big reason I became involved with the conservative movement. . . to keep homosexuals from teaching my children.

and the crap just keep coming. . .

My children and I will be joining you. . . think they will give us group rates.

My oldest daughter is paying a pack of $$ to keep my grandson in a true CHRIST CENTERED Christian school to keep him safe from this type of crap.

We will never accept this garbage

I do have personal conservative standards, but generally libertarian for the most part, what people do in their own bedrooms is their choice, although they should be held accountible and responsible for their actions if things go wrong. That is true in life and the afterlife in my opinion.

However, when it comes to potential threats to our security, I pull no punches and I do fear this will become one since it will affect morale. I think if homosexuals want to serve their country, there are many other ways to do so such as what Alan Turing did in World War II with the early computers he designed to crack Nazi codes.

This subject at best requires further study and debate and at worst, DADT worked well and should have been kept. The military is being used as a social petri dish to help push a social agenda. That is wrong.

One more thing, I don’t want to see anyone get hurt, but it is like the old saying, “if you keep provoking an animal, sooner to later, they will fight back” and rightly so.

They’ll keep pushing harder unless and until WE push back. I think States’ Rights is a good place to hold ground. One of the good places. Civil disobedience may be necessary too. Pulling millions of kids out of school, too.

All I see is a sea of waving white flags, ever since a likely non-natural born citizen declared himself a candidate for president.

Sadly and with grief I believe you have hit the nail on the head. REALLY don't want to go this poss next phase, but evil just keeps pushing.

Light cannot coexist with darkness. . . never has never will.

It's wearing me down also and they mean to do just that. . . that is how Satan works.

As you well know and practice. . . just have to keep on praying and trusting the Lord. Stand in faith in who we are IN HIM, move when He says to move.

Very difficult when hell is breaking out all around you . . .

The battle is the Lord's. . . thank God
