Arizona argues its same-sex marriage ban protects procreation | Gay Star News

This is again an tired and not realistic or viable idea.   Look, the state lets opposite sex people marry for any reason , any time, any time length.   Every time the state lets some male / female couple marry for 26 hours and then divorce, lets some one marry multiple times, blesses the marriage of couples incapable of having babies, either due to medical reasons or by default of age, they prove a mockery of this argument.   Marriage both legal and spiritual is far more than procreation and baby making.   The church originally need more procreation of their faithful to create them as to gain them a dominate position among the different religions, and then to keep their money base increasing.   Every religion comes down to money at it’s base.   However we already have enough people in the world, we have a huge population.  Not a worry if some people don’t have babies.  As long as infertile couples or those unable to PRODUCE new babies are allowed to get married, don’t give me the crap about states having a right to keep marriage to procreation purposes.   Hugs

Arizona argues its same-sex marriage ban protects procreation

This past March, a federal lawsuit was filed on behalf of seven couples and the surviving spouses of two additional couples challenging the state’s gay marriage ban

The US state of Arizona is arguing its gay marriage ban protects children, procreation, and straight parents.

Attorneys for the state filed papers in the District Court for Arizona this past Wednesday (23 July).  The legal team maintains the prohibition has nothing to do with LGBTI citizens.

‘…The State regulates marriage for the primary purpose of channeling potentially procreative sexual relationships into enduring unions for the sake of joining children to both their mother and their father,’ Arizona’s lawyers wrote in court papers, according to MSNBC.

‘Same-sex couples can never provide a child with both her biological mother and her biological father,’ the state continued.

‘When a same-sex couple takes steps to create a child, they must involve at least one person of the opposite sex, and that involved third party will be a biological parent of the created child.’

The Alliance Defending Freedom, an anti-marriage equality organization, is assisting in Arizona’s defense.

According to the advocacy website Freedom to Marry the four couples in this case brought their suit against the western state in January. The plaintiffs are arguing the marriage ban violates the Constitution’s guarantee of due process and equal protection.

In 2008 November state voters approved an anti-marriage constitutional amendment.

Fringe Factor: ‘Gaystapo’ Claims Its Latest ‘Victim’ – The Daily Beast

Filed under: Homosexual, News, opinion, Political — Scottie @ 14:32

Again people who do the deed, who hurt others, who are the aggressors and the ones doing the action, then claim to be the victim.   I get tired of this.  People do or say something totally out of bounds and then when brought up short because of what they did, they claim their the ones being victimized, the ones being discriminated against, and the ones being harmed by the bullies.    Hugs

Fringe Factor: ‘Gaystapo’ Claims Its Latest ‘Victim’ – The Daily Beast.

Fringe Factor: ‘Gaystapo’ Claims Its Latest ‘Victim’

A newspaper editor was fired after comparing gays to Nazis. Now he claims his First Amendment rights to write stupid things were violated.

In April, the goateed editor of the Jasper County, Iowa Newton Daily News, Bob Eschliman, took to his personal blog to talk about Jesus and compare homosexuals to the Gestapo, as one does. When he was then fired, he felt as though he was under attack for his personal choice to live as he pleases — according to his interpretation of the Bible — and presumably saw no irony in that whatsoever.

His incendiary post was promptly deleted (along with the rest of the blog) after being flagged by journalist Jim Romenesko, but it read, in part: “[Jesus] said there would be deceivers. He said those deceivers would cause Christians who remain true to His teachings to become reviled. He said false prophets would follow to deceive even more, and that lawlessness will abound…If you ask me, it sounds like the Gaystapo is well on its way. We must fight back against the enemy.”

Eschliman also cleverly referred to non-heterosexuals as “the LGBTQXYZ crowd.” With wordsmiths like these in charge, it is sure difficult to believe that print is dying.

After firing Eschliman, the Newton Daily News published an editorial, which stated that although the First Amendment “prohibits the making of any law that impedes the free exercise of religion…” it “does not eliminate responsibility and accountability for one’s words and actions.”

Eschliman took this to mean that his First Amendment rights were violated, and teamed up with the Liberty Institute, a right-wing Christian advocacy group, to sue — just like Jesus would have done.

In his complaint, Eschliman charges that he “penned a theologically based article stating my sincerely held religious beliefs” and in firing him, “Shaw Media [the paper's parent company] directly discriminated against me because of my religious beliefs and my identity as an evangelical Christian who believes in Holy Scripture and the Biblical view of marriage.”

The Daily Beast reached out to Eschliman to ask about the definition and etymology of the term “Gaystapo.” He has not yet responded.

However, according to Urban Dictionary’s top result, submitted by user “supafly rabbi,” the definition of Gaystapo is, “militant homosexual activists. Instead of thugs they use lawyers to get their way.” Supafly Rabbi offers the sample sentence: “massachusetts has been taken over by the gaystapo.”

Words related to Gaystapo, according to the site, include: “gay sharia,” “homofascism,” “homothugs,” and “homoerotic enforced harmony.”

Holy Fucking ShitBalls — The degree of heartlessness exhibited by Americans….

The degree of heartlessness exhibited by Americans – by Republicans in particular – beggars belief. Many of these children are victims of the drug war America is funding, and refuses to end. A drug war those same conservatives support. But then, Republicans want babies to be born without caring what happens to them afterward.

In the end though, you have to wonder how different the Republican reaction would be if these were bus loads of blond-haired and blue-eyed Northern European kids who spoke English. My guess is they’d be volunteering their homes, and serial pedophile Ted Nugent and Duck Dynasty’s Bible-totin’ Phil Robertson would probably not be alone in offering to take the 15-year-old girls into their own homes.

Glenn Beck Defends Book That Claims Slaves Were ‘A Cheerful Lot’ And White Slave Owners Were The Victims | Liberaland

Glenn Beck Defends Book That Claims Slaves Were ‘A Cheerful Lot’ And White Slave Owners Were The Victims | Liberaland.

Glenn Beck Defends Book That Claims Slaves Were ‘A Cheerful Lot’ And White Slave Owners Were The Victims

Conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Tuesday defended a history book which refers to slaves as a “cheerful lot” by urging his listeners to go out and buy the book.

One of Arizona’s public charter schools is under fire from Americans United for Separation of Church and State for using textbooks that actively promote religious interpretations of American history, according toRaw Story.

Cleon Skousen’s The 5000 Year Leap was used in a 12th-grade history class in which the book promotes “Christian nation propaganda,” according to the group.

The book reportedly claims slavery was beneficial to African Americans. The book also makes the jaw dropping claim that abolitionists spread false rumors about the mistreatment of black slaves, and it adds that “slave owners were the worst victims of the system.”

Raw Story reports:

Beck, who has promoted The 5000 Year Leap, insisted there was nothing wrong with the book. He said he was “doubling down” on his support for it.

Co-host Steve Burguiere remarked that critics had never “produced one sentence from that book that was controversial.”

“That book is absolutely right,” Beck said. “That book, The 5000 Year Leap, changed my understanding of the United States government and our founders. It is the clearest, simplest, most direct way to teach what happened and why we were founded the way we were.”

He encouraged his listeners to go out and buy the book, even if they already had a copy.

“Teach it to your children. Read it to them at night. Bring it to the dinner table,” Beck said. “It will be the only chance they have to actually learn American history.”

Watch:

This is nothing new for Conservatives. Rep. Loy Mauch (R-Ark)  found biblical support for his pro-slavery position. He wrote to the Democrat-Gazette to ask, “If slavery were so God-awful, why didn’t Jesus or Paul condemn it, why was it in the Constitution and why wasn’t there a war before 1861?”

Last year at a Republican minority outreach, an audience member defended slavery as good for African-Americans and could be heard muttering, “Why can’t we just have segregation?”

Maggie Gallagher Trolls Study That Finds Kids Of Gay Parents Are Happier – The New Civil Rights Movement

Filed under: Health, Homosexual, News, opinion, Political, Religion — Scottie @ 10:29

Typical of the far religious right and the GOP.  When you have no facts, when you are wrong, simple lie as though the whole world agrees with you.  They lie, lie, lie and then tell us the represent “family Values”  and have better “morals” because they believe in God, the same God that told them not to give false witness or lie!  Hugs

Maggie Gallagher Trolls Study That Finds Kids Of Gay Parents Are Happier

National Organization For Marriage co-founder Maggie Gallagher is weighing in on — trolling, actually — a new study that finds children raised by same-sex parents do better in certain areas than their peers raised by different-sex couples.

In her column at the National Review, Maggie Gallagher just weighed in on this study out of Australia that finds children raised by same-sex parents are happier, healthier, and feel a greater level of family cohesion than their peers raised by different-sex couples.

Attempting to capture the justified outrage and investigations the deeply-flawed Regnerus anti-gay parenting “study” ignited several years ago, Gallagher noted that the “New York Timesand the media are widely reporting the results of a new study of 500 children raised by same-sex couples.”

“Researchers,” the former journalist and former NOM chair quipped, “are aghast that such a shoddy piece of work, which is based on a convenience sample of parents who volunteered to be surveyed, and which relies solely on these parents’ reports to determine child well-being, should have been published in a reputable peer-reviewed journal.”

“The author is facing a petition and statement signed by hundreds of reputable academics questioning his moral character and scientific integrity,” Gallagher continued, “and the editor of the journal who published such a thing faces similar attacks and enquiries about whether the peer-review process was compromised.”

Of course, none of that is true. Gallagher is merely trolling, after losing the battle to get the Regnerus report, unscathed, in front the U.S. Supreme Court justices in a same-sex marriage case.

“Oh wait, the study shows children of same-sex parents do better than the average child, after adjusting for income. Never mind.”

LGBT activist and blogger Jeremy Hooper first noted Gallagher’s post — and that the National Review has been deleting his comments almost as soon as her piece was posted.

In May, Gallagher penned a column in which she claimed that the attorney defending Prop 8 was facing a “crisis” when he learned his daughter was a lesbian. Earlier this year, Gallagherwrote that America is “now in the gay marriage in all 50 states phase whether we like it or not.” And last year, Gallagher lamented, “I believe the Supreme Court is going to impose gay marriage in all fifty states within the next two years.”
