Gay Marriage | Maryland | NOM

Preview Of Maryland Anti-Marriage Equality Website


Bigoted anti-gay groups are amping up for a fight now that Maryland legislators have introduced a marriage equality bill that many gay rights acitvists feel very optimistic about. Jeremy Hooper of Good as You has a preview of the Protect Marriage Maryland website set to launch sometime soon. Not surprisingly, the hateful group is apparently affiliated with NOM.

Protect Marriage Maryland is headed by Robert Broadus, a tea party-backed Republican who ran for Congress last year but lost to Democrat Donna Edwards.

Watch an interview with Broadus, wherein he talks about "the queering of America," AFTER THE JUMP.

  2. I find it hilarious that there's a big ol' RAINBOW in the Noah's Ark image on the bottom left. Gayest. Biblical. Illustration. Ever.

  3. @Joe, you're right. A "silly" mistake perhaps? But does PMM believe in mistakes?

    I hope none of those people get gay children, because gay children need loving caring parents.

  4. No, they're stomping their wittle hooves about how the gays have taken the rainbow, and "demand" that we give it back. Honestly, it's so fuckin' ugly that they can have it...but no, if it pisses them off, it should be retained.

    Hmmm, shuddering a popeye's, joanie. That'll about do her.

  5. DC has marriage equality and is only the third most defiant. Weird. Illinois should also be more defiant.

  6. I love the color-coded map showing the most and least god fearing states -- just priceless. How can they even pretend to be taken seriously?

  7. What PMM is trying to do, is unconstitutional. Freedom of religion is a major cornerstone of our constitution. In fact, it's the very first right given to the people! Anyone trying to take that right away should be viewed as traitors of this country! We do not have to believe what they do, we only have to give them the right to believe in it. But if you take away that right from someone, it is treason, and we should not tolerate someone underminding our rights!

  8. Joann, you call ALL of your Federal Elected officials and you also call your state elected reps. That is how we fight back. They MUST hear from you.

    Many people think "The Taliban" exists only in the Middle East. The Taliban is a mind set that has "Religion" at its core. Not Spirituality. They are attempting to turn America into Iran or Afghanistan under the thumb of the Taliban.

    Have the courage to call them what they are. No they are NOT Christians. They are militant Radical Religious Extremists.

  9. That’s one damned ugly site, both in intent and design.

  10. Topher, you must not have seen what happened over the last 8 years with the Civil Rights struggle for marriage equality. Hence you don't take these hate groups seriously. That's why they ARE winning. Gay Americans don't take them seriously.

  11. Does anybody ever ask these so-called "christians" what they're doing to stop atheist marriage? (proof that marriage is not religious)

  12. Nowhere in the Constitution or even the Declaration of Independence will you find the words "Jesus Christ".

  13. I'm beginning to think I'm dumb - why is allowing MORE people to marry a threat against marriage? Doesn't that just reinforce the idea of stable families?

    If people really want to defend marriage, they should make divorce illegal.

  14. I like the color scheme they've chosen. Vibrant happy purple vs dull mud. But Hawaii is just one shade better than Wyoming? Really?

  15. These people aren't "Christian". If they were they would remember Jesus' words which mentioned people like them, who show so much hate toward other human beings.

    “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you"

  16. The letter of the law versus the spirit of the law

    The letter of the law versus the spirit of the law is an idiomatic antithesis. When one obeys the letter of the law but not the spirit, one is obeying the literal interpretation of the words (the "letter") of the law, but not the intent of those who wrote the law. Conversely, when one obeys the spirit of the law but not the letter, one is doing what the authors of the law intended, though not adhering to the literal wording.

    "Law" originally referred to legislative statute, but in the idiom may refer to any kind of rule. Intentionally following the letter of the law but not the spirit may be accomplished through exploiting technicalities, loopholes, and ambiguous language. Following the letter of the law but not the spirit is also a tactic used by oppressive governments.

  17. The map is unintentionally useful. Both sides can now use it to their advantage.

  18. As someone with Illinois roots I'm pretty offended, with the new civil union law Illinois is at least as defiant as Washington and Nevada, and way more defiant than Hawaii!! And how about Rhode Island being as defiant as Wyoming? These people as just stupid.

  19. Yet another Tea Party-led crusade against gay rights.

    And no, Republican apologists, campaigning against our rights is not the same thing as doing nothing to advance them.

  20. I am trying to understand something. Which religion has licensed or authorized the government to perform marriages? I am not aware of any, in fact, if I remember correctly, it is religion that is licensed by the state to perform marriages. {By the authority invested in me by the state and by God, I now pronounce you ...} I believe that is something like what I remember!
    Now it is possible for straight couples to get married without ANY involvement with ANY religion, as evidenced by the wedding chapels in Las Vegas, how is it only a religious institution? AND if it is something other than a religions institution, HOW is the government restricted to RELIGIOUS rules?
    OR, if marriage is a RELIGIOUS institution, why are those that are married allowed ANY government benefits? The government has NO interest in religious institutions. If a particular religion allows for a gay marriage, what right do other religions have to deny those rights? {I am thinking of UFMCC, or Unitarian Universalist or any other religion.}
    Because a religion is large, does not make it right! Ask the victims of the crusades, or the Spanish inquisition, or even Leonardo da Vinci! It was hundreds of years before the Catholic church recognized it was wrong, and said oooops, sorry! And pretended that their actions against da Vinci never happened.
    And the idea that marriage needs to stay the way that it has been for thousands of years? Please, a wife is not a piece of property! A man can not stone his wife if she is not a virgin at the time of their marriage! Over the course of time marriage has been in a constant mode of change!
    Has the sky fallen in over parts of the world where gay marriage is legal? Obviously not!
    So apparently the arguments against allowing gay marriages are based in bigotry.
    I fail to see how the logic being used by the religious right has ANY bearing on reality! Obviously their logic is flawed!

  22. "Marriage is under attack. Only you can save it."

    Two things to protect traditional (natural) marriage:

    1. Once you're married, NEVER EVER get a divorce (and, for God's sake, make sure you have at least one child); or

    2. Never get married (so there's no chance of getting a divorce) and, oh yeah, no pre-marital sex - EVER - and, of course, no children out of wedlock.

    Thanks for doing your part!

  23. If this is what their website will look like... then we've already won. Seriously, I can't decide what's more of a crime against humanity, their prejudiced views or their horrid graphic design.

  24. That woman on the right, her wedding "hat" is defiant.

  25. I thinks its time to call being GAY a religion. Then we can do what they do. Grandstand for "OUR RIGHTS"
