With All Due Respect To Reddit's r/Conservative Page...

....HRC's got a point there; it might not be the point they like, but its' a vaild point; looking back at American history, its' only been in the past few decades that Americans' of all stripes have been able to fully contribute to society - in voting, politics, business, etc. - and its' really gotten under the skin of Americans' who seemingly want to yearn for and return us to the good old know, the days when women stayed in the kitchen, blacks didn't try to assert their rights, LGBTs' stayed in the closet, etc.,etc.,etc.

Well, all I can say to them is that, hopefully, those days won't ever freaking come back...

Mat Staver: Second American Revolution Needed To Stop Gay Marriage

With all due respect, Mr. Staver, since when did your right to religious liberty trump mine and other Americans' right to be treated equally before the law?
In a radio interview this weekend, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver called on states to defy a Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality if it goes “the wrong way.”
“What we could have is the Supreme Court issuing its decision on marriage the wrong way, and Alabama saying, ‘Goodbye, get out of my state, that’s not what’s going to happen to my state,’” Staver told anti-LGBT pundit Linda Harvey, adding that he hopes Texas will also flout such a decision.
The Religious Right legal activist went on to insist that California’s Proposition 8, the gay marriage ban that was struck down by the federal courts, “still is applicable” in most of the state. “They have no legal authority to issue those same-sex marriage licenses,” he claimed.
Staver said that people should prepare to commit civil disobedience if same-sex marriage becomes legal, pointing to the example of a North Carolina magistrate who is refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and offering an extremely twisted account of a controversy involving Catholic Charities in Massachusetts.
“Go back to the days of Martin Luther King Jr., go back to the days of the American Revolution,” Staver said. “I think it’s that serious.” (Right Wing Watch; Soundcloud audio of Staver's remarks)
I think HBHM's Alvin McEwen said it bestTo paraphrase Mrs. Howell on Gilligan's Island, "what does one wear to a second American Revolution?"
My response to him would be: Probably something with the word "loser" on it.

Pseudo-Historian David Barton Claims AIDS Is A Punishment From God For Homosexuality & That Never Will Be A Cure

For what its' worth, I wholeheartedly agree with HBHM's Alvin McEwen:
Maybe it's just me but I tend to think that if God has decided that there will never be a vaccine for AIDS, He would inform the scientists steadily working on it instead of religious right fake historian David Barton who is infamous for his lies, distortions, and tone deafness to basic facts..
I've said it before and I'll say it again: it will be a good day when these charlatans who masquerade as "leaders" within the Christian faith (and FWIW, Rick Warren and others similar are included in this) are shoved aside so that an honest, thorough discussion of the faith without all the lamentations and gnashings' of teeth from the poor, poor persecuted crowd here in the U.S.

...Mr. Barton: with all due respect, sir...shut up!
