Were Some March for Marriage Attendees Misled About the Rally?

Every year, New York state Sen. Ruben Diaz brings a bunch of people down in buses to the March for Marriage. The Human Rights Campaign was at the rally interviewing attendees and one of them said that he was told they were going to an immigration rally and were surprised it was about marriage when they got there:

    Well we don’t want those illegals sneaking in with their nuclear weapons forcing us to gay marry, now do we?

    Hey, immigration … marriage … he was a body! 10,000 (by their count, 6,000 by others) in a nation of 310,000,000+ … that matters (not) a lot!

    I wonder how many of those people who know so much about what their god wants could even name any 10 books in the Bible?

    It would be interesting to know how many of those people would not have come if they had known the truth. It says a lot about the organizer’s cause that they felt that they had to lie to people in order to get them to attend.

    Well many of the organizers of the anti-gay march showed up on the Supreme Court steps during the pro-equality rally Tuesday morning and literally screamed through their bullhorn to ensure the pro-equality side couldn’t be heard. Apparently they aren’t just resorting to lying to make their point, they are also trying to silence the opposition, again.

    When gays get equal rights the Christians will immediately start searching for another minority group to attack. Who will it be? It used to be pagans, then heretics, then blasphemers and, up until the mid-20th century, the Jews. When it became politically incorrect to pick on the Jews, the church began attacking homosexuals. When the gays are protected by law, who will the Christians pick on next?

    Says so much about the collective IQ if they had no clue as to what they were supposed to be against…

    And these ‘rent-a-righteous bigot’ clown marshals that press gang folk to march under the jebus banner for what ever cause they deem ungodly, must be damned desperate in their collective hatreds!

    who will the Christians pick on next?

    That is indeed the pertinent question, although the inherent bigotry against the previous. now unavailable, targets still toxically bubbles below the surface, because…well that is what jebus would do ain’t it?

    But when the traditional Xtian punching bags are moved behind the screen of law, they can still gaze on with righteous indignation but not touch…must be a hell on earth for the bunnies !…an bit like teasing a ravenous dog with a bone the other side of the window!

    But indeed who next to experience the focused benefits of Xtian ‘lurve’ ™

    Gotta be a toss up…literally… b’twixt ‘n’ b’tween teh Muslins’ and teh atheists!

    One suspects they will no doubt pray for guidance in the matter.

    Been a long while since they were allowed to burn a few folks for the feel good factor, it might be expected that recent ISIS atrocities might indeed tickle their righteous bones, and revive within them that desire to hear the screams of the damned, which never truly went away.

    But the problem they have is the logistics of performing their hatreds…the one possibility would be a little out of reach to exercise their full jebus inspired jihad, but the home grown ones are vulnerable but few in number, they would be dealt with and then what?

    Nah…far better to wage a campaign against the real enemy of god…the godless!

    Only this time with more passion and commitment then the previous 2k yrs.

    Especially seeing as the godless are the most direct danger to them and their delusion.

    I mean what would they do if their religion was killed, they would have nothing left to hide behind to toss their bigoted stink bombs, they have not got the balls to do it standing on their own two feet!

    So interesting times ahead…just hope, although not pray, that the Supreme court has a modicum of humanity coursing through their ethics.

    Whatever, the Xtians will get around to their enemies in time, just some sooner then others, so high noon at the rational stakes…’bring it on Mr Anderson!’

    A Christian wanting to go to an immigration rally? I take it he wanted to protest in support of the Biblical view

    “The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the LORD your God.”
