Linda Harvey Concerned Satan Is Deceiving the Supreme Court on Gay Marriage: LISTEN

HarveyDevil-obsessed wingnut homophobe Linda Harvey was busy spreading the muck again yesterday in her hope that the Supreme Court will “not be swayed by the schemes of Satan to deceive, divide and destroy.”

According to Right Wing Watch, Harvey added that if Satan wins the fight for the very soul of America, people should be prepared to resist the “unconstitutional, unlawful decision” and - of course - think of the children.

She also prayed that the “eyes of America will open to the ungodliness of homosexuality and sexual sins of all kinds and we will turn from the elements in our culture that are driving this.”

Last month, Harvey joined forces with Matt Barber, Peter Labarbera of Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality, Scott Lively, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and others to ask parents to keep their children out of school on this year's "Day of Silence."

Tony Perkins Thinks Bryan Fischer Could Make a Better Effort At Hating Gays: LISTEN

Bryan Fischer

A follower of hate group mouthpiece Bryan Fischer (above) has serious concerns that his wingnut leader is just not quite homophobic enough.

Satan-obsessed Fischer, of anti-gay activist group the American Family Association, had advised that if his fellow homophobes must attend a same-sex wedding they should make the lucky couple aware that they do not approve beforehand.

However, one listener was so incensed with Fischer’s clearly moderate opinion that he telephoned yet another wingnut - Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins - to complain, reports Right Wing Watch.

The caller told Perkins that he was in shock because a true Christian would only attend a same-sex wedding in order to tell the participants that they are going to hell.

“The only reason that any Christian would ever attend a homosexual wedding is when the preacher says, ‘Is there any objection to the wedding,’ you stand up and say, ‘Yes, according to the Bible, sodomy, you will burn in hell for this.’ That is the only reason why any Christian would ever attend a sodomite wedding.”

Although doubtful that a gay couple would “invite people to raise any objections,: Perkins was impressed with the caller’s insightful comments, adding that silence in the church about divorce has led “to this wholesale redefinition of marriage as a result.”

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder Fights Against State Recognition Of Terminally Ill Gay Man’s Marriage: VIDEO

Bruce Morgan Brian Merucci

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder (right) has submitted a brief arguing that the state should not have to recognize the marriage of a gay man suffering from a terminal illness, reports the Washington Blade.

Rick Snyder_smThe five-page brief presented to the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Michigan on April 16 East Grand Rapids couple Brian Merucci and Bruce Morgan. Morgan is suffering from brain cancer.

Although the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a 2014 decision striking down Michigan’s gay marriage ban, Snyder has acceded to the decision in Caspar v. Snyder requiring the state to recognize the marriages of couples who wed during a window period after the initial court ruling.

However, Snyder has argued Caspar v. Snyder does not provide for the recognition of  Merucci and Morgan’s marriage.

“The only circumstance cited by Plaintiffs not previously considered by this Court is the decision in Caspar. But Caspar is non-precedential and factually distinguishable.

"Consequently, the legal and factual landscapes relevant to staying this case remain the same as they did when this Court issued the stay, and Plaintiffs’ motion should be denied.”

Morgan v. Snyder was filed in June 2014, but the case was stayed in as marriage litigation was pending before the Sixth Circuit. Earlier this month, Merucci and Snyder sought a relief from the stay in the aftermath of the decision in the Caspar case.

Shocking 1975 Government Document States Marriage Cannot Exist ‘Between Two Faggots’: VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01a511c23b80970c-800wi-1

A 1975 letter from a district director of the Justice Department’s Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) told a gay couple that their marriage could not be recognized because they “failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots," reports Buzzfeed.

The letter was in response to Richard Adams and Anthony Sullivan, one of the first same-sex couples in the U.S. to try to get their marriage recognized by the federal government. A clerk in Colorado married the couple and they tried to use the marriage so Australian native Sullivan could remain in the U.S.

Although the couple fought the INS decision, they were rejected by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court declined to hear their case. Sullivan’s challenge against deportation was rejected by the 9th Circuit in a decision by Judge Anthony Kennedy, now a Supreme Court justice.

Although Adams died in 2012, Sullivan has continued to keep their case and the issues behind it in the spotlight.

The government has since issued an apology written by León Rodriguez, director of INS successor the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which reads:

“This agency should never treat any individual with the disrespect shown toward you and Mr. ­Adams. You have my sincerest apology for the years of hurt caused by the deeply offensive and hateful language used in the November 24, 1975, decision and my deepest condolences on your loss.”

Guam Native And 'Millionaire Matchmaker' Star Pleads With Territory's Governor For Marriage Equality: VIDEO

David Cruz III

Gay The Millionaire Matchmaker cast member David Cruz III has written to Guam Governor Eddie Calvo urging him to follow the law and approve same-sex marriage for the island and also recorded a heartfelt video, reports Guampdm.com.

The open letter reads:

“My name is David Cruz and I am a current cast member of Bravo TV's ‘The Millionaire Matchmaker.’ I spend a good part of my life setting people up and helping people find love. “But, recently something has come my way that has broken my heart.

"Last week I was saddened to hear that the Governor of Guam, the island where I grew up, is denying gay men and women their legal right to marry - EVEN after being issued a legal memorandum to do so from the Attorney General of Guam.

“I was compelled to voice my opinion about this matter as I am not only a son of Guam having grown up on the island, but also as a gay man. I spend every moment of my life helping people find love and giving advice about relationships, so I cannot stand by and watch my own community of LGBT people be discriminated against.”

Yesterday we reported that Anthony Apuron, the Archbishop of Guam, described being gay as an “intrinsically moral evil” and insisted that the only way to deal with homosexuality is to think of it as a disorder to be treated.

Anti-Gay Attorney Gene Schaerr Thinks Gay Marriage Will Lead To 900,000 Abortions: VIDEO

Gene Schaerr

As anti-gay activists continue to grasp at straws as the tide turns in favor of same-sex marriage, the Washington Post reports on a new last-ditch argument that marriage equality will lead to 900,000 abortions.

The claim was made by Gene Schaerr (above) who argued against gay marriage in Utah and Idaho.

In a post on the Heritage Foundation website last week, Schaerr acknowledged that although “abortion and same-sex marriage may seem unrelated...the two are closely linked in a short and simple causal chain.”

6a00d8341c730253ef01a511ec12db970c-150wiUsing the bizarre argument that same-sex couples marrying will somehow devalue “traditional marriage,” he explained that there will be fewer heterosexual couples marrying, leading to an increase in the number of unmarried women, who have abortions at higher rates that married women, resulting in “nearly 900,000 more children of the next generation would be aborted as a result of their mothers never marrying.”

Heritage Foundation’s Ryan Anderson (right) backed up Schaerr’s claims, alleging that “every nation and every state that have redefined marriage have seen their marriage rates decline by at least 5 percent after that redefinition, even as the marriage rates in the rest of the states remain stable.”

However, the Washington Post points out that marriage rates have declined overall.

“The national marriage rate declined to 6.8 per 1,000 in 2012, from 8.0 in 2002, before Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage. The Massachusetts rate dropped from 5.9 in 2002 to 5.5 in 2011, while Connecticut went from 5.7 to 5.5 and Vermont went from 8.6 to 8.3. But Texas and Utah, free of same-sex marriage, dropped from 8.4 to 7.1, and from 10.4 to 8.6, respectively.”

Schaerr also speculated that an unemployed man who got his girlfriend pregnant in a state providing for same-sex marriage would be more likely to conclude that he has no obligations to the mother and child.
