  3. During the Spanish lesson I understood one line from the happy song. "Jesus de Nazarene."

    Is this a pro-heteronormative marriage rally or a papal visit?

  6. Maybe HRC could sponsor a month-long March for Marriage!! and get gay people to marry in March every year. There wouldn't be so much competition for venues with straight people in May and June. plus there is the added benefit that maybe they could all meet up afterwards at the White Party!!

  7. Last time NOM Marched for Marriage in DC Brian Brown reported 15,000 attended but the Parks Service officials said there were probably 2,000 people. The March for Marriage website showed 22 buses going to DC. So even if every bus were filled up that would mean approximately 1100 people. Watching the feed it is interesting that the camera never cuts to the crowd. NOM is famous for stealing photos from big DC mass rallies of other groups and posting it to their site as their own pics of the event.

  12. All I heard from watching about 20mins of this was that their truth is the only truth in marriage matters. Against nature is often sighted but nature is full of same sex love. Most of the reasons they use to bolster straight marriage could be used to promote any marriage such as love, commitment, companionship, trust, friendship, devotion and having a family. But as they imply repeatedly these are only straight values and do not apply to us. They do not have one good solid example of how a married gay couple will change their current marriage. They truly are afraid of us and NOM exploits that with misinformation and hate. I can’t help but wonder who or what the next generation will target to rally hate. Hopefully none, but history has shown many targets, be it ethnic, religious, race or sex.

  13. One of the reporters live tweeting at the rally says that there are 2000 people at most an most are hispanic. She says it looks like an immigration rally. Take it fwiw.

  14. Wow. There are a lot of people there. They don't even need wide angles.

  15. I like how Reuben Diaz promised low-income Latinos from the disadvantaged Bronx neighborhood how they would enjoy an all-expense paid trip to the nation's capital for attending a short event (never telling them it was an antigay rally or even that it was NOM who organized the event). Way to build credibility, NOM!

  16. What is the estimated crowd??

    Posted by: louis | Jun 19, 2014 12:24:12 PM


  17. 2000 out of a nation of 300 millions. It is a monumental failure.
    With one fifth of US population, Manif pour tous in France rallied millions of people. They didn't succeed either.
    Some fringe religious nuts of the GOP may be there, more and more are staying away from this failure. What is left is their God who won't go away because he was not there in the first place.

  18. “First they came…” is a famous statement and provocative poem attributed to pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) about the sloth of German intellectuals following the Nazis' rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

    There is some disagreement over the exact wording of the quotation and when it was created; the content of the quotation may have been presented differently by Niemöller on different occasions.

    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

    Then they came for the socialists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for the Catholics,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Catholic.

    Then they came for me,
    and there was no one left to speak for me.


    Martin Niemöller was a German pastor and theologian born in Lippstadt, Germany, in 1892.
    Niemöller was an anti-communist and supported Hitler's rise to power at first.

    But when Hitler insisted on the supremacy of the state over religion, Niemöller became disillusioned. He became the leader of a group of German clergymen opposed to Hitler.

    In 1937 he was arrested and eventually confined in Sachsenhausen and Dachau. His crime was “not being enthusiastic enough about the Nazi movement.” Niemöller was released in 1945 by the Allies.

    He continued his career in Germany as a clergyman and as a leading voice of penance and reconciliation for the German people after World War II.

    His statement, sometimes presented as a poem, is well-known, frequently quoted, and is a popular model for describing the dangers of political apathy.

  19. The Paranoia Switch by Martha Stout (amazon.com)

    These familiar history McCarthyism, the World War II internment of Japanese-Americans, and the rise of the Klu Klux Klan after the Civil War – are three American examples of what I have called “limbic wars.” Every limbic war can be divided into six stages.

    These stages do not have distinct beginning or ends, but rather merge, almost imperceptibly, each into the next. The first phase always involves a traumatizing event, usually a war or an attack. The five subsequent stages are essential reaction to the fear instilled in people minds by the initial tragedy.

    The second stage is the all-important one. If leaders willing to us the paranoia switch are not embraced by the people, a limbic war may not occur at all, and the unhappy unfolding of Stages 3 through 6 can be avoided. If they accept the fear brokers, the process continues into its third stage.

    The Six Stages of Limbic War
    1. Group Trauma
    2. Fear Brokers
    3. Scapegoatism
    4. Cultural Regression
    5. Recognition & Backlash
    6. Regret & Amnesia

    Ten Behavioral Characteristics of Fear Brokers
    1. Fear brokers speak to us of fear, dangerous people and frightening situations
    2. Fear brokers are not limited by facts; they use alarming “unfacts”
    3. Fear brokers tend to accuse those who disagree with them of being unpatriotic or naïve
    4. Feat brokers look good
    5. Fear brokers behave like archetypal parents
    6. Fear brokers shame us over sex
    7. Fear brokers praise us for being moral and heroic, contradicting as it is
    8. Fear brokers project personal infallibility
    9. Fear brokers are secretive, and are certain that other people too, are keeping dangerous secrets
    10. Fear brokers use language that pulls for primitive affect

  20. I love the speaker from the Conservative Council of something or other who screamed out that "this is the end of civilization!" and the crowd didn't even react.
    What kind of hate crowd is this? Get into it! Civilization is over, now make some noise!

  21. Who's this self-proclaimed gay guy who's fighting against marriage equality. These people are the worst.

  22. His holiness can talk about "truth" and "god" until the cows come home while the "gay army" is going to sack Rome when CU and gay marriage sweep to the doorstep of their "holy city".

  23. Who is this delusional bigot and complete traitor Dough Mainwearing ? He says he's gay.

    He talks about same sex marriage doing irreparable harm,......where is that evidence ????

    There's only one camera,,,,,with no shots of the crowd, however small.
    it's all nonsens. Don't these people have jobs or are they all over 65 and on Social Security ?

  24. I don't know shiit:
    What are you talking about?

    Posted by: simon | Jun 19, 2014 12:50:02 PM


  25. And, the best was that gay/ex-gay/gay again/sort of ex-gay again, Doug Mainwaring dude.
    He thinks it is imperative that we strengthen the marriage culture, but only between men and women.
    This from the guy who claimed to be ex-gay, got married and then divorced his wife after discovering he was gay again. But I guess is straight again?
    They only let him speak for a few minutes. I think they were afraid he was going to come out.
