That it's "politically expedient" to pressure a gay employee to resign says a lot about conservatism, the GOP, and America.

Sensible Americans should be ashamed of their insane counterparts.

Can't wait until Bryan Fisher is discovered balls-deep in a pool boy.

So much fail to spread around. The biggest fail is losing to Fisher.

So you'll stand up to that POS when he slams Mormons, but you can't be relied on to defend others? Yeah, real profile in courage and leadership there. You caved to a nasty, name calling fool who's afraid of his own penis. Well done, Governor. Well done.

Why would you wish that on a innocent tanned toned muscular poolboy?

Ah yes. Betraying your allies and supporters because bigoted hate filled extremists demanded it.

Romney has to prove to Republicans that he's a Christian, and of course the best way to do that is to hate on gay people!

Duh.

If mega-churches and "pro-family" groups knew how many GOP staffers and consultants at all levels of government were gay they would all die suddenly from massive strokes, as every vein in their brains would burst simultaneously.

I would think that hate groups would be still pissed at the Mormons for deciding that black people were human beings way back in the 1970s.

If we are to believe Romney is an effective manager, because he's a successful businessman, then him hiring Richard Grenell means he thought Richard Grenell was the most qualified man to do that job.

But that means Romney will let a highly qualified man go, if it gains him political points.

It's the generalization that they're all bigots to which Aaron is objecting, I believe.

The good ones seem to be few and far in between.

But fine, I'll restrict myself to only referring to this group. I see no reason to change what I've said about them.

GAT_00: Christians have good qualities?


See, this is the big conundrum. There are some Christians like my girlfriend's dad, so very good to the core that it makes me feel like I need to do more with my life. He goes on "missionary work" with his masters in agricultural science and goes to poor areas to help them get faltering farms up to full production, and actively refuses to proselytize unless asked for guidance. And even then, his focus is on using what you have to help other people. The subject of anti-gay marriage laws came up once and he said it was disgraceful that people who claim to be Christians were spreading such bile in Christ's name. He knows I'm agnostic with a predilection towards complete non-belief, but his response to that is that so long as I'm making the lives of the people around me, I'm not fooling anyone; "Acts of love, not professed belief, make you Christian."

So there are Christians like that out there. My girlfriend's mom is like that too, but not to the same extreme. I can think of a few more.

On the other hand, the people who are waving the banners, shouting the loudest, and calling attention to themselves and the hate they spread in the name of Christ is FAR more obvious, far more visible, and as near as I can tell, their opinions are more dominant in the "Christian" community.

If the ones who are like Yaz's dad were the ones that were the public face of Christianity, I'd be a very active non-member supporter of their happy club.

I wish the people like the ones in the link were not representative of the majority of "Christians" in the world.

Eh, I'm OK with a fellow gay being Republicans, with the caveat that generally the gays I know tend towards the old school republican values: limited federal oversight, less spending, less taxes, and not necessarily the crazy-ass evangelical, non-compromising mindset. While I don't necessarily agree with them on a lot of things, it's important to realize that gays and lesbians are human too- they can make mistakes. (Huge, brobdingnagian, mistakes.)

That being said, everything about this guy I heard before he was dismissed made him seem like a massive tool.
 
2012-05-03 10:49:28 AM
And they wanted him fired just for being gay. Wow.

Did you see the daily show bit on Fischer crowing abou this last night? The amount of gay sex that man has researched makes me feel like he is some sort of Baptist robot fueled by gay porn.

It's a perpetual dilemma. You can argue they're not all bad and hateful. But then it brings to mind the question of why they would remain associated with groups or communities that are. There's no singular good answer. Because faith rises above the faithful (the good and bad ones alike)?

That would be the greatest day ever.
I wish these types of people would stop referring to themselves as christian, because they aren't. What they "preach" is such a corruption of the actual message of Jesus... I just wish they would find another icon to hitch their hate-wagon to. Its horrible how they villify gay people and other groups, and I am ashamed of and embarrassed by every single one of them.

Agreed. But let's face it, there are some gay republicans out there who simply thrive on the negative attention they get. This guy might be one of them.

That's certainly your choice. I try not indulge in their behaviors, gratifying as it may be. There's something to be said for doing "do unto others" better than the farks who claim the moral high ground simply because of their chosen mythology.

I'm serious.

They hate women, they hate gays, they hate Muslims, they hate illegal immigrants.

For Christ sakes, they hate the Muppets.!

Well, that's one way of staying positive. Personally, I just keep a tally every time I'm watching television these days- every time I see a story about someone who raises a stink about gay people, I make a note of what percentage of them cut immediately to the sponsor, and if it's a chubby, middling-to-old-aged white guy. So far it's at 100%.
That gives me hope for the future, at least. (In that it's likely they'll all be dying soon enough for me to still be able to do a jaunty little two step on their graves.)

That's why they hate Jews too, seeing as how that's when they started ordaining women.
