Teh Gay Are Stealing the Rainbows! Who Will Protect Richie Blackmore?
Alright, this is a quick hit because it is so freaking absurd. And it flat out cracks me up. Do these dogmatic conservative religious nutjobs ever stop to think how completely insane they sound? No.
Via Jillian Rayfield at TPM:
Becky Yeh of right-wing American Family News Network’s OneNewsNow, a product of the American Family Association, writes that Morse says “the rainbow is a sign of God’s covenant with man.” Morse told ONN: “Proposition 8 was passed by a great grassroots coalition that included people from all across the religious traditions, and also people of every race and color. We are the real rainbow coalition. The gay lobby does not own the rainbow.”
Morse continued: “We can’t simply let that go by. Families put rainbows in their children’s nurseries. Little Christian preschools will have rainbows…Noah’s Ark and all the animals…. Those are great Christian symbols, great Jewish symbols.” She also described how she wore a rainbow scarf to the Prop 8 hearings to show that anti-gay marriage activists still own the symbol.
You know, I don’t recall them specifically citing the theft of rainbows, but this is literally about the same kind of stupid shit argued by Charles Cooper, Andy Pugno and their battery of genius
bigots attorneys in and around the Perry v. Schwarzenegger Prop 8 trial.
They’re all ripping off Richie Blackmore.
