RoadMichelangelo Signorile on Congressman Matt Salmon: "My head is going to explode if I hear someone say one more time that a parent can unconditionally "love" his or her child while still not 'accepting' the fact that the child is gay, and can even oppose rights for the child. Yesterday several callers to my radio program accused me of being unreasonable, and even hateful, for saying that we are now well past the time when such thinking is acceptable. If you're working against rights for your own children in the name of your religious faith, even while claiming that you love those children, then you are selfish and pathetic, actually loving yourself and your beliefs more than you love your own kids."

  2. Ha! Well, I guess Virginia certainly isn't for lovers - gay or straight!

  3. AMEN, Signorile! No, Salmon Sr. doesn't love his son. He doesn't even accept him. He tolerates him, barely, as long as his whipped boy toes the line and never grows a spine. It's amazingly sad.

    Nearly all of my American friends grew up in anti-gay conservative households - no wonder they made their way(s) to NYC. BUT, and it's a big but (i like big buts and i cannot lie), their parents at least did one thing right: they raised their kids to be strong enough to one day stand up to them and defy them.

    Salmon? The double-whammy of being a Republican and a Mormon has both neutered and lobotomized his son.
    There's such thing as "i love my son but don't think he should be allowed to marry" - that's saying "I wish he was straight and i'm still ashamed that he's gay but i can't say that without sounding like an intolerant person. so i'll instead say something else that's pretty intolerant but people as brainwashed as my kind won't be able to make that distinction."

    Salmon Jr.'s comments about the "intolerant gay community" are more evidence of this - of course he has to say "we" are intolerant - that's how he's able to buy the peanut shells of tolerance his dad tosses at him.

    But yeah. It's an ugly harsh truth - the man doesn't love his kid. not real love, anyway.

    as for Cuccinelli - i've said it before but i'll say it again - anti-gay conservatives always come across as people who haven't had a decent orgasm in years. if ever. from Virginia Foxx to Santorum to the Bachmann's - these are the faces of people who can't remember what an "O-face" looks like, or feels like.

    We gays will not apologize for having rocking orgasms.

  4. I've said this before, Salmon Sr and his ilk (Maggie Gallagher, Bryan Fischer, et al) are unclear on the concept of love. Since he is, he really shouldn't even be allowed to vote or even communicate anything about love until he grows up. As a further show of his inability to love, he's stunted his son' emotional maturity so that his son stands up for the father's childish idea of love.

    What part of "Catholic" doesn't this guy understand?

    Leave that hateful, criminal organization.

  10. The Catholics discriminate against gays? Shocker. Are you going to try to change them from within? It's not going to work. Go somewhere your energy and commitment is appreciated and leave those bigots to their own devices.

  11. i think they love their kids in a two-dimensional way, with an asterisk, a footnote, an "even though" or "in spite of", but certainly not "because that's who s/he is"

  13. gays have never been considered part of "all," as in liberty and justice for, especially in mainstream churches

  14. Nice to see that the president of Rutgers took the athletic abuse seriously. Now 4 or 5 people making hundreds of thousands have Resigned or been fired. Nice to see repercussions for these idiots.

  15. Umm...the Catholic church has rules. If you do not like their rules or find it impossible to follow them...then leave. But feigning shock that they do not approve of your gay marriage just makes you look like an ass.

  16. the bishop of rockville centre (long island)who told that priest to dismiss mr. coppola is gay. and he surrounds himself with a group of adoring gay monsignors. it's a shame murphy has that much power over the only jesuit church in his diocese. coppola should go to the jesuit church of francis xavier on 16th street in manhattan, where he will be treated like a human being.

  17. Although I absolutely despise Cucinelli and what he stands for here in this state, everyone is off base in reading his actions.

    He wants the law to apply when adults solicit or engage minors in these sexual acts. I don't have a problem with that, but he would be better off to propose a new law or a modification to the existing laws than file and appeal.

  18. Boo hoo hoo. The antigay pedophiles won't let me play in their kool kid klub anymore and I'm so very sad. Won't someone cry for me?

    Like there are no other churches that are good enough for such high moral standards. Anyone who is still clinging to the belief that catholicism is the church of decent people deserves what they get. No tears for enablers.

  19. The Bishop Of St Petersburg (florida) is not only gay, but the diocese had to pay Bill Urbanski $150,000 because Bishop Lynch sexually harassed him while Bill Urbanski was in Church employ.

    Just search for "Bill Urbanski" in quotes and it will come up.

    BTW, this POS lives in an expensive waterfront pool home on the parishioners' wallet. Now I ask you, how does a man who has taken a vow of poverty justify living in a million dollar house with servants?

  20. I don't know what's more stupid - being a gay catholic or being all shocked because the catholic church went medieval on your butt for doing something that the catholic church totally hates.
