    So, wait, they’re gonna sue all gay people?

    This sounds like something off of the Onion.

    Whatever attorney takes their case will most likely be totally insane.

    The crazy just gets deeper and deeper.

  2. James in Toronto says

    Just a thought from my foreign perspective, but it might be fun if the Southern Poverty Law Center managed to label the entire “Tea Party” as a hate group.

    “They” seem to hate just about everything.

    I assume that this was then followed by a plea for the TP rank and file to send in some more money to finance this glorious crusade. Probably rivers of cash will start flowing towards these grifters from the pockets of the ignorant, blighted, terrified TP members. What a bunch of maroons.

  4. Joesph Foster says

    Barbara LaPeter could start by suing his closeted self. All those trips in leather to gay events; and all the things he ‘had’ to do to maintain ‘deep cover’. Just sayin…

  5. Robert in SF says

    I bet they name President Barack Obama, as he is the head of the Democratic Party, and as such, he is who they would consider to be the ring-leader of all the Democrats pushing for equality…and the party platform does include marriage equality…

    That would get them plenty of airtime to talk about their case and get attention and drive up monetary contributions…and of course, no one is gonna give the lawsuit any dignity by responding to their talking points…so we will suffer some by letting their lies and distortions run rampant in the “news”…

    We’ll see how it goes.

    Imagine the countersuitps for this! I think it’t time for a class-action lawsuit against the Tea Party for the 64 billion dollars they wasted this month; or a class-action lawsuit against Christianity for emotional distress.

    I hope they do this, because the legal system will go nuclear on them.

  7. Sean says

    We’ll just file a counter class-action lawsuit against their homophobic bigotry quoting them when they advocate concentration camps, deporting us, making threats such as “homosexuals are worthy of death” and using scripture to say that we should have millstones tied around our necks and dropped in the sea, present evidence of the thousands of LGBT people killed, beaten, raped, and bullied to the point of suicide due to the nature of Anti-gay Inc.’s enabling of anti-gay barbarians.

    this would make a great southpark plot, with kyle’s dad as the attorney defending mr. slave.
    what an absurd echo chamber they live in; a very closed circle.

  9. says

    Does reality never intrude into their thinking? Homosexuality isn’t going to go away to suit them, so what they think about it is beside the point. It’s just reality, and you don’t actually get to change reality, it just IS.

    Get over it.

    You cannot sue anyone on the basis of a condition. It’s like sueing all persons who are blond (like I). You would have to prove what actual physical harm the plaintiff has caused; homosexual persecution and suffering is well documented and trumps hands down anything these mental cases could come up. I’m still not seeing who they actually could make the plaintiff; but I really hope they try, because they would have even the international courts coming after them, and it could stimulate a well-placed offense and win against these baboons. Who have gay encounters in the wild by the way.

    I’d call this lawsuit part desperation but also, a lot of it is, obviously…these people simply hate us. This is what they see as a way to seek to validate their hatred of us. To go after our community. Again. They have to try to find a way to “stop us” from destroying the country.

    Let’s keep an eye on this and see how things develop.

  12. says

    What century is the tea party from? Are we still in the 1970’s? Scarboroughs remarks are both antiquated and ludicrous, yet not long ago the very notion of gay marriage was inconceivable if not downright frightening. By 1970 as gay rights became more vocal, pamphlets were produced filled with dire warnings of the dangers of homosexuality and the “coming revolution” invading the mainstream. http://wp.me/p2qifI-1Cp

  13. Geoff says

    Yeah. I once brought a class-action lawsuit against the color burnt-orange. Still waiting to hear. That was 20 years ago. I’ve already planned what I’m going to do with all the money, also. Any day now.

  14. jjose712 says

    There’s something weird with this people.
    There’s a lot of people who hate in the world (other races, homosexuals, foreigns, etc). Hate is comfortable, you always have someone to blame for your problems (wich is way easier than assume your responsability in them).
    But spend so many time on spreading hate is a very different story. There must be a reason to so much hate and dedication to ruin life of other people.
    If they weren’t dangerous it would be very sad

  15. Bernie says

    I hope they try this alleged law suit so that maybe some first year law student or some first grader can tell these brain trusts their law suits won’t fly……….

  16. Rexford says

    So they’d rather spend their money doing something like this, which is based in judging others, as opposed to feeding the hungry and providing shelter to the homeless? Shows how much they’ve perverted Christ’s message.

  17. anon says

    It’s a fundraising ploy but not a particularly good one. It’s along the lines of “let’s raise some money and pay ourselves to fight this battle in court”. It doesn’t meet any filing standards for any type of court case, so hopefully their donors won’t fall for it.

    When the definitive history of the triumphant gay rights movement is finally written, the stupidity of our enemies will play a huge part in the story of our ultimate success. We’re doing battle against low-grade morons.

  20. says

    These Anti-Gay Activist are forgetting that having HIV or perceived to have it is covered against discrimination under the ADA Americans with Disabilities Act. And to put “Homosexuality” on trail would go further towards defining gays as a protected suspect class.

  21. Johnnybegood says

    I’m filing a lawsuit against my parents for “turning” me into a homosexual at the tender young age of 5. My dad loved to sneak into my bed at night and hold me…just making me feel loved. I’ve been queer ever since…and it’s his fault. I smell a lawsuit!

  22. jamal49 says

    Sounds silly, but I think it’s a reaction to Scott Lively’s prosecution for crimes against humanity. This is war, folks, and the enemy will think of any way they can to defeat us and kill us, whether figuratively or literally. Never underestimate the power behind evangelicals and their seeming buffoonery. We laugh but they are serious. They hate us, virulently. And they really do want to see us eradicated.

    @john patrick: Some guy allegedly once sued the Catholic Church because his house was destroyed by a tornado (might have what happened wrong), and his insurance company refused to pay anything because they did not cover “acts of God.” So he sued the Catholic Church due to its claim to be God’s official earthly representative.

    While the judge may have been amused, the case was nevertheless dismissed.

    Maybe they can sue companies that make tofu – another right-wing nut claimed that tofu makes people gay. You can read the article at http://www.wnd.com/2006/12/39253/ but make sure you do not have a cup of hot coffee in your hand.
