I often sit and wonder how organizations like NOM get so many followers, and I beleive I have worked it out. They target peoples ignorance and lack of education, you fill their brains to capacity  with so many fabricated lies until it gets to the point that the sheep is now unable to think for themselves.

Maggie Gallagher - President Of NOM and Head Of Brainwashing

But it doesn’t stop there! Oh no, that would be way too easy for them! After spending so much time brainwashing their victims do you think they are going to let any outsiders come along and fuck up their hard work? Not a chance in hell!

Now we all know about North Korea and how their President Kim Jong-il just LOVES to dictate what his people see, hear and think, and NOM is doing the same, they do not want its followers really knowing whats going on in the world, they do NOT want them knowing the harm and cruelty they are inflicting upon other people, they do NOT want its followers to think for themselves.

How do we know this? myself and others have taken it upon ourselves to try and save these sheep before they are sent off to slaughter, we try and educate them that what they are doing is wrong, and everytime we post something on their facebook page, it promptly gets deleted.

I urge you to head over to their facebook page, and post something positive in regards to the gay community, and every time they remove one of your comments, go to your myspace/facebook/twitter and invite people to also go post something positive, if everyone did this, the person in charge of that page will spend more time erasing comments than spreading hate.

I mean, what do you have to lose?

EDIT: Why stop with facebook! Head over to NOM’s Official blog!

WTFBlog is a mild success because of all the hard work I put in, but mainly it is due to the readers, and how does WTFBlog get readers? social networking sites is where most of the traffic comes from, Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, and a few others,.

People are more than happy to re-post an article I have posted about a hot naked guy, but when it comes to issues that should REALLY mean something to them, they don’t bother, because they simply do not care, they would prefer to sit back and have someone else do the work for them, I mean, re-posting something important takes HOURS right?

Not one single person has re-posted an article in regards to the National Equality March, or how about those websites that have petitions on them for you to sign to help YOU get those gay rights?

And its not just an internet issue here, last year when California was fighting Prop H8, people chose to go out and get drunk and left phone banks and the door to door efforts to someone else, where are your priorities gay people? You want to know why Prop 8 passed? Its because of lazy bitches who could not be fucking bothered to DO SOMETHING, and these same people are now complaining that they can’t get married, well boo-hoo, it’s too little, and its way too late.

Barney Frank said recently in an interview about The National Equality March,(and if you don’t know who Barney Frank is, educate yourself and google him)

“I literally don’t understand how this will do anything. People are kidding themselves. I don’t want people patting themselves on the back for doing something that is useless. Barack Obama does not need pressure.

Now maybe I am wrong here, but isn’t that how civil rights are achieved? with PRESSURE? How, in the 21st century will we pressure Washington to give us the rights we deserve?

The answer is rather simple, you are using it right now.

WE will not obtain equal rights under the law if everyone had the “someone else will fight for me” attitude.

So next time you see someone posting something about gay rights, about a rally, about contacting representatives appealing to them to support bills that will benefit the gay community, do us all a favor and take 2 SECONDS of your time and re-post it, maybe YOU don’t give a fuck about your own rights, but I can assure you someone you know WILL.

You USE the internet to plan your social life, how about you wake the fuck up and USE IT TO HELP YOU GET YOUR RIGHTS YOU DESERVE.

BUY PEPSI PEOPLE!

Churchgoers in Florida have launched a campaign to boycott Pepsi for its support of gay rights, including its donations to the fight against Proposition 8.

Churchgoers in Tampa Bay, Fla., are being urged to boycott Pepsi to protest the corporation’s donations to gay advocacy organizations and “acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle.”

Terry Kemple, president of the Community Issues Council, a right-wing Christian activist organization, wants to send a retaliatory message to Pepsi and its subsidiaries, which include Gatorade, Tropicana, Frito-Lay, and Quaker, according to WTSP-TV .

“[Kemple] said the company donated more than a million dollars to organizations that fought California’s gay marriage–banning Proposition 8,” reported WTSP-TV. “He also says the Pepsi Corporation has sponsored gay pride events and commercials that accept cross-dressing and homosexuality.”

Kemple reportedly also convinced his megachurch, the Bell Shoals Baptist Church, to remove its 10 Pepsi machines and replace them with vending machines from Coke.

Nadine Smith, the executive director of Equality Florida, called the boycott “offensive” and “embarrassing,” noting that Coke, like Pepsi, supports full equality.

Ted Olson, the conservative half of the team arguing for gay marriage in a federal court in California, told the Los Angeles Times that gay marriage is a “conservative value,” among other things, over the weekend.

Along with David Boies, Olson has been hired by the newly-minted American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) to represent a gay couple and a lesbian couple who would like to marry but cannot because of Proposition 8, California’s voter-approved gay marriage ban upheld as constitutional by the state Supreme Court in May.

Olson-Boies’ argument is simple: Marriage is a constitutional right regardless of sexual orientation.

Olson has racked up an impressive conservative record: He’s served on the board of directors of American Spectator magazine and in the administrations of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Olson battled Boies on the conservative side of the Supreme Court in the Bush v. Gore case that secured the presidency for Bush.

For outsiders looking in, Olson’s support for gay marriage runs afoul of his conservative leanings, a notion Olson rejects, arguing that gay marriage is a conservative value.

“It is a conservative value to respect the relationship that people seek to have with another, a stable, committed relationship that provides the backbone for our community, for our economy. I think conservatives should value that.”

That position, however, has not received a warm welcome by all conservatives. Olson says he has been told that “I’m betraying the conservative cause and things that I’ve stood for in my life.”

“Some of it is quite hostile,” he says, then adds: “On the other hand, I’m hearing from people, including plenty of Republicans, who are very, very grateful.”

Olson also dismissed criticism from gay rights groups that say a loss in the Supreme Court, where the case is likely headed, could put the movement behind possibly decades.

“In the first place, we believe we can be successful. In the second place, it has been very difficult to win [state] elections, and the California election was an example of that. Three, it’s very difficult to tell the people we represent that you must wait until people throughout the country decide to recognize that you are to be treated equally.”

“Not everyone is going to agree with the legal strategy, but we think we are at the right place at the right time in the right court, and we’re hopeful we’ll be successful.”

Ultimately, Olson says he wants to play a role in securing the right to marry for gay men and lesbians.

“A woman came up to me in our library in our law firm and said, ‘You and I haven’t worked together, but I’m a lesbian. My partner and I have two children.’ And she burst into tears. I put my arm around her and she put her arms around me. This stands for what we’re trying to accomplish here. It’s a principle that deeply touches human beings. If we’re successful, we can help the lives of literally millions of people. And what a great service that would be.”

A special rally will be held in Philadelphia on 3 May to push for gay rights in the US, reports Pink News. A gay equality rally has been given permission to be held at the Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The event takes place on a Sunday. The Independence Hall is associated with the declaration of Independence and the formation of the United States of America. The route of the march to the event also takes in sites of historical importance both to the US gay community and the wider US community.

Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are where the Gay Pioneers held the first organised gay and lesbian civil rights demonstrations, called Annual Reminders, each Fourth of July from 1965 to 1969.

Legislation that would allow same-sex couples to sue for wrongful death damages has been defeated in a state senate committee. It was the first of six LGBT bills filed in the legislature this session.

I mean, COME THE FUCK ON! Why did they even TRY?! If you are gay and live in Utah, get the hell out of that shithole, as far as i’m concerned, your state doesn’t run your state, the Mormons do.

The committee room was packed as senators took up the death damages bill.

It would have allowed any two people who live together and are mutually dependent and are named in a will or trust access to a wrongful death court action if tragedy occurs.

In addition to same-sex couples, the legislation would have applied to siblings or other family members.

But two senators who voted against the measure said they were concerned that approving it would be a move toward legalizing gay marriage. Utah has a so-called Defense of Marriage Act, and in 2004 the state constitution was amended to bar same-sex marriage.

The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Scott McCoy (D) disputed the concerns.

“It doesn’t single anyone out based on a cohabiting relationship or a sexual relationship. It doesn’t matter the gender, rather it’s the economic relationship,” he said.

The defeat of the measure does not bode well for the other five measures – including health care, a clarification of the marriage ban, a partner registry, and a bill to include gays in job and housing protections.

Nevertheless, McCoy said he will press ahead with the bills.

Earlier this month, a poll commissioned by Equality Utah found that 63 percent support gay legal protections including some rights for same-sex couples.

The survey found that 62 percent believe it should be illegal to fire someone for being gay and 57 percent said it should be illegal to deny housing to someone for being gay.

On the issue of partner rights, 73 percent said they would support health insurance coverage for a partner or other designated adult for state employees. Utahans however are not ready for same-sex marriage.  Only 20 percent said they supported gay marriage.

BOYCOTT!!!! Tell your friends! That’s all I have to say on this issue, that and kiss my ass AFA!!

(New York City) The American Family Association is calling off a boycott of McDonald’s after the fast-food giant agreed to end its support for the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

In addition, a company employee appointed to the chamber’s board of directors has resigned.

McDonald’s incurred the wrath of the AFA after it made a $20,000 donation to the chamber, and Richard Ellis, who until last month was vice president of communications for the chain, was named to the chamber’s
board of directors.

The company at first resisted AFA’s demands that it sever ties with the chamber. In a July response to the conservative group that fights LGBT issues nationwide, McDonald’s Global Chief Diversity Officer Pat Harris said: “We have a well-established and proud heritage of associating with individuals and organizations that share our belief that every person has the right to live and work in their community free of discrimination.”

But now in an e-mailed memo to franchise holders, the company said it has dropped ties with the chamber.

“It is our policy to not be involved in political and social issues. McDonald’s remains neutral on same-sex marriage or any ‘homosexual agenda’ as defined by the American Family Association.”

Richard Ellis is no longer with corporate headquarters.  He is now with the company’s Canadian operation.

The e-mail said that Ellis stepped down from the chamber’s board “voluntarily.”

“We appreciate the decision by McDonald’s to no longer support political activity by homosexual activist organizations,” the AFA said in a statement to its members calling off the boycott.

The AFA previously boycotted Disney for several year’s over its support for Gay Days at Disney World, although the company was not an official sponsor of the event.

It boycotted Cincinnati-based Proctor and Gamble over the company’s support for the repeal of a city charter amendment that prevented Cincinnati city council from enacting any laws that would recognize gays and lesbians.

The group boycotted Kraft for its support of the Chicago Gay Games and threatened to boycott Wal-Mart over its involvement with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.

The boycotts resulted in little impact on the companies.

The AFA boycott of Ford was heralded as a success by the organization which noted that it had resulted in a drop in sales and share value.  But most financial analysts said that Ford’s problems were really the result of vehicle designs that failed to impress the public.

The conservative Christian group launched a nationwide boycott of Ford in 2005 over the automaker’s support for LGBT issues, briefly put it on hold, and then reinstated it.

The AFA claimed victory when Ford began pulling its ads from LGBT publications, but industry observers and the company said the ad pullout was part of a downsizing of expenses.
