1. No town for Hate says

    Springfield is quite economically depressed, so it doesn’t surprise me that this carpetbagger could gain a foothold in the community. With Massachusetts as one of the few states that recognize the rights of all adult citizens to enter into matrimony, should they so choose, he probably sees his mission as the Crusaders did in the Dark Ages. (or maybe he thinks he’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

    One good note: Springfield is very close to Northampton where the community is very gay positive, progressive, (and EDUCATED). I hope that they keep the pressure on him and force him to reckon with his own hateful actions and beliefs.

    C’mon Springfield, grow a pair and throw him out of town!

    NTFH, if no one is making an effort to help Springfield, then it’s more then likely that Springfield will succumb to this guys hate.

    Obv we’re a much smaller country and I can only compare this to another UK city where there are certain pockets that are clearly deprived and a stone throw away, some very progressive and economically vibrant places.

    I guess it’s to do with who is in charge of that area and why they are not doing the same thing as what Northampton has done?

    I applaud Scott Lively for focusing on the poor and downtrodden. Many liberals/progressives love to talk the talk but the truth is they despise the poor. Hopefully, this will be the start of a positive new ministry.
