Her testimony before the Congressional committee this past Friday wasn’t all that interesting and you could tell she irritated a number of the members of the committee, including Rep. Nadler. He wasn’t having any of her shit.
But one thing about all her bleating is still present, she links everything to the children and how awful it would be for those children to have two gay parents who love and want the child. Or how awful that a 2nd or 3rd grader would have to find out that there are people out there that do fall in love with others of the same sex, oh the horror!
But other than that she has no new, credible evidence to support her claims. The anecdotes they use are from YEARS ago and there haven’t been any NEW cases since.
Beating a dead horse is one thing Maggie, but beating it until it’s a bloody pulp isn’t cute. And it’s about to get a whole lot less cute.
Apparently Ms. Gallagher was presented with the Anita Bryant Unparalleled Bigotry Award by Michael Dixon of GetEgual. And now Robin McGehee, Director of GetEqual has promised Ms. Gallagher a pie. I’ve suggested a Boston Creme pie. And I hope someone throws it in Gallagher’s face.
Of course there are those who say doing such a thing would be detrimental to our cause. But I can tell you a couple of things that might make you change your mind on that.
1) The only way to effectively deal with bigots like Gallagher is to ridicule them. The presentation of the Anita Bryant Unparalleled Bigotry award is an example of such. It’s the only watching Maggie try to duck away from the questions Dixon was asking was priceless. Of course Gallagher is doing it because she CAN’T answer.
2) The episode here in Providence where activists got up in Brian Browns face could only be milked so much.
So please, I urge you, throw the pie in Gallagher’s face.
