Well that what the assholes at the LAPD seem to think.

All day I have been thinking about what article I should be posting to symbolize the return of WTFBlog, and then I saw James posting something on Facebook, and I remembered his story.

From change.org:

On August 31, 2009 James Hornik was brutally raped by another male in Hollywood, California, as one does when they have being subjected to a crime, he contacted the LAPD assuming that since. he was a, ya know, a tax paying citizen he would be treated like any other person needing help.

Boy was James in for a surprise!

When James asked if he could press charges, the officer simply replied with

“A gay man can’t be raped”

Mr. Hornik was then  treated at Cedars Sinai Hospital but was denied a forensic rape collection kit by the LAPD, whose job it is to issue such kits through their forensic team. If however…James had been a woman with boobs and a pussy, he would of no doubt being taken to the hospital and fully examined.

Which is odd really when according to the California Penal Code, rape is an “act of sexual intercourse or penetration, however slight, which is sufficient to complete the crime“. So why exactly would the LAPD deny him the right to press charges? It makes no fucking sense at all!

James Hornik has been fighting for more understanding and recognition that men (gay or straight) can be raped ever since that muggy night in August of 2009 with very little help at all. He has contacted organizations such as LAMBDA Legal, the ACLU, the NoH8 Campaign and various others only to be denied help and led in circles. Mr. Hornik even filed the proper complaints with the city, county and the LAPD internal investigation team. The LAPD was exonerated from any wrong doing or neglect by the mayor.

So what can you do to help? Well for one thing you can sign the petition that is demanding the LAPD make a formal apology to Mr. Hornik and the citizens of Los Angeles County, this will also hopefully change how they men are treated when they have being affected by rape.

So only the other day myself and my fellow gays were discussing our gay agenda, and lemme tell you, taking over governments, brainwashing children into being homos, and well, destroying the sanctity of marriage, gets boring fast.

However, we are doing so well, we decided to put on a show for planet earth, first of all we thought of using our unlimited resources to put on simultaneous fireworks displays around the globe, but that happens at New Years, then we thought how about the biggest Gay Pride event EVAR!!!,

And then, it dawned on us, lets do something on purely EPIC (I finally got around to using that word! go me!) proportions!

Ladies and gentleman, we give  you…

Solar Tsunami 2010!

Wait….what?! You don’t think we are THAT powerful!

Well, I’m not going to sit here and tell you how stupid you are for thinking that, I am going to let the wonderful people at christwire tell you all about it.

God is once again letting his anger with the gay be known, this time by attacking Earth with a scorching solar tsunami that is schedule to take place at approximately 11:25 pm EST.

Gays are now pushing for more marriage rights, worldwide, with their two new hotspots for petitioning goverment for the rights to conduct their sin-soaked acts under the sham of a gay wedding license being the state of Iowa and the country of Chile.

These two offenses to America and our Christian heritage, even in Chile by way of the Monroe Doctrine, are just another drop in the soiled bucket of offenses that gays have poured all over our culture and lifestyle. They have dirtied the moral fabric of humanity with their sugar-plummed fecal sins and now. Due to this, God has grown so frustrated with their sins that he has scheduled a solar tsunami to take place and show his anger.

We were all already warned. Time and time again, we’ve witnessed God show blatant disapproval of gays and they have angered him so much, he’s made a show of his growing wrath with them. Just over the last few months, gays have upset God so much he has:
* Doomed California for their Fecal Sins
* Flexed his oceanic power to show his anger toward homosexuals
* Used a giant fireball to warn the Midwest to say no go gays
* Became so angry with Guatemala that he opened a massive sinkhole and cast a furious stormy tempest, only hours after they approved gay marriage
* Brought a fiery wrath to Iceland for approving gays

Even after all of these examples of God showing his power to scare us and make us take heed to his will, gays remain resilient little pests and keeping reveling in their little defiant orgies of sulphur scented sins.

The display will take place tonight, starting at around 11:25 pm by estimates by a bewildered NASA, and will go until God sees fit to decrease the Sun’s electromagneticly furious activity of nuclear flames.

Auroras will manifest in the night sky, a cosmic reminder of how small we are to the will of God. The Bible says no to gay marriage and fornication, yet, we have not made being gay illegal. We allow them to continue to push for ‘rights’ while God patiently waits in heaven above. Now, the gays have brought this warning shot from God upon us.

Cameras on board NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory have already recorded massive eruptions and explosions on the Sun’s surface, caused by God. These explosions have hurled mega-tons of plasma — charged gas — straight at Earth. By this point we all know who is shooting that plasma right at us, and who is responsible for Him doing so.

The event is called a coronal mass ejection and hopefully the gays know that when they use their ejectioned satan scepters to dally each other’s backsides, they are just setting the stage to be burned in the hot fires of hell for all time where their entire instistines will be shot up with ejected plasma from the Sun and it will sear, burn and torture for all time!

O RLY?

The gorgeous people at HuffingtonPost today posted the below fabulous article about NOM, and how well, us gay folks have never been hunted down and murdered, unlike Jews, Christians, and Blacks. The subject matter is shocking enough, whats even surreal is myself and members of Freedom Fighters for Equality witnessed it all get posted, and even better, we have the actual screen shots!

James W Preece, Administrator for NOM, made the below startling and shocking claims: (read from the bottom up)

From HuffPost:

What’s up with the National Organization for Marriage (NOM)?

Not too many people are noticing this, but that organization, started to supposedly “protect marriage” from us so-called evil LGBTs, seems to be going off the deep end in terms of rhetoric.

When it began, NOM cleverly played up the “we are unfairly being called bigots because we simply want to protect marriage” meme. And that was because of the savvy of its founder, Maggie Gallagher.

But now with Gallagher handing the reins of the group to Brian Brown, the organization has abandoned all pretenses of martyrdom and is headed straight for crazy-talk territory.

This was evident when it joined forces in its “Summer for Marriage” tour with one Louis J. Marinelli III, a man who not only cites the discredited work of Paul Cameron, but is also very vocal in the belief that gays want to cause all sorts of mischief from molesting children to creating polygamous relationships.

And if that’s not bad enough, from an administrator of NOM’s Facebook page comes this little “gem:”

(Gays and lesbians) are not being repressed, discriminated against. There is no and never has ever been a homosexual man hunt for them. Jews, Christians, and Blacks were hunted down and murdered. Homosexuals have nothing in common with the three.

Now I could go into a history of the persecution of the LGBT community in places like Nazi Germany or talk about Sakia Gunn, Michael Sandy, or even Matthew Shepard (whose murder was not soley about a robbery no matter what the right says), or the countless number of LGBTs who have lost their lives due to hate but what’s the point?

Sometimes people say things so wildly inaccurate that any comment you want to make is unnecessary.

The statement by NOM is beyond the pale and it further proves what many LGBTs know about that group. NOM is not interested in defending marriage. It’s only interested in bashing LGBTs, but not by physical attacks.

NOM seeks to psychologically bash us.

First the organization tells us that we are not worthy of marriage; that we have no ability to love and raise children; that we are undeserving of anything except for what folks like them feel that they want to give us.

And now with that statement, NOM seeks to rewrite history in a way that eliminates our past struggles for equality in the same manner that the group is also trying to eliminate our potential future happiness.

I think a question by web site Box Turtle Bulletin about the statement on NOM’s facebook page says it all:

Are they completely delusional?

Sadly, I think the answer is yes.

But wait! There’s more!

The National Organization for Marriage has responded to the HuffPost article:

“The Huffington Post on Wednesday falsely attributed statements to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) about discrimination faced by gays and lesbians. The statements were apparently posted by an unnamed “administrator” of the “Protect Marriage: 1 Man 1 Woman” Facebook account. Huffington Post falsely claims that this is NOM’s Facebook page. The Facebook account on which these statements were reportedly made is not NOM’s Facebook page and neither NOM nor anyone representing NOM made these statements. The Facebook account in question is operated by a private party and NOM does not control what is allowed to be posted on the account, a fact that could have been easily known to Huffington Post had they reached out to NOM to verify the report.

But NOM’s explanation is seriously misleading.

As this link courtesy of Box Turtle Bulletin and Goodasyou proves, the page “Protect Marriage: 1 Man 1 Woman” is associated with NOM. From its Twitter page, NOM is pushing the page as its own.

Furthermore,  Louis J. Marinelli – self identified “NOM strategist” is the general manager of the page.

And one more thing about Marinelli – he is not only participating in NOM’s “Summer for Marriage” Tour, but he is also (wait for it) driving the RV that NOM is using in the tour. We know this because he is so generously giving everyone updates on how the “tour” is going.

So the question here is who are you going to believe? The National Organization for Marriage or your own eyes?

Crowds assembled in the Plaza del Congreso in Buenos Aires waiting all night for a vote on marriage equality, and then…around 4AM…

I congratulate Argentina on its social progressiveness. Your national leadership had the courage to defy the Catholic church and the powerful influence of the Mormons. I have no doubt they will seek punishment and retribution in one way or another. I only wish America had such courageous leadership. But we don’t, and there is little if any hope of finding such a leader on the horizon.

This is just hilarious, I would like to remind everyone that the anti gay rights people are constantly yapping on about America being a Christian nation…

The Air Force Academy has set aside an outdoor worship area for Pagans, Wiccans, Druids and other Earth-centered believers, school officials said Monday.

A double circle of stones atop a hill on the campus near Colorado Springs has been designated for the group, which previously met indoors.

“Being with nature and connecting with it is kind of the whole point,” said Tech. Sgt. Brandon Longcrier, who sponsors the group and describes himself as a Pagan. “It will dramatically improve that atmosphere, the mindset and the actual connection.”

The academy superintendent, Lt. Gen. Michael Gould, has made religious tolerance a priority. It became a concern in 2004 when a survey found many cadets had heard slurs or jokes about other religions and that some felt ostracized because they weren’t religious.

Longcrier and Ziegler said they’ve heard no criticism of the new worship space but both noted its presence was just made public.

“Not to say that it’s not coming, but so far we haven’t had any real issues,” Longcrier said.

He said 15 to 20 cadets have shown an interest in Earth-centered beliefs, and eight to 10 regularly attend Monday night meetings. Of those, six or seven are devout believers and the others are “searchers,” Longcrier said.

The academy has about 4,000 cadets. The school is one of five U.S. service academies, including West Point and Annapolis. Cadets graduate as second lieutenants.

“Earth-centered” spirituality encompasses many beliefs, Longcrier said, many that recognize multiple gods and goddesses and observe holidays tied to the seasons.

Longcrier said he personally doesn’t consider gods and goddesses to be actual beings but personifications of natural events that human ancestors wanted to put a face on.

“The goddess is symbolic of the Earth,” Longcrier said. “Do I believe I’m worshipping this female entity living in the Earth or up in space somewhere? No. The symbolism is very important.”

The group’s meetings are usually devoted to mediation, lessons or ceremonies, he said.

Longcrier, who oversees laboratories in the academy’s astronautics labs, said he has military designation as a “distinct faith group leader.”

Anyone is welcome to visit the new worship site but it should be treated as a religious structure, he said. A formal dedication is planned in March.

The stones were moved to the hilltop last year because erosion threatened to make them unstable in their previous location near the visitors center. Crews arranged them in two concentric circles because they thought it would be a pleasant place for cadets to relax, Longcrier said.

When Longcrier and academy chaplains were looking for an outdoor worship space, they discovered one already existed in the form of the circles.

Lt. Col. William Ziegler, one of the academy’s chaplains, said designating the space is part of the school’s effort to foster religious tolerance and to defend the constitutional guarantee of religious freedom.

“It’s about our commitment as airmen to protect freedom and defend freedom. To me this is a freedom thing,” he said.

The school also has worship facilities for Protestant and Catholic Christians, Jews, Muslims and Buddhists.

I’m always a little amazed by blatant discrimination against anyone, especially if it’s easily documented. The Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF) is filing a complaint (lawsuit) today (December 7th, 2009) with the Florida Commission on Human Relations. It’s due to an Orlando McDonalds’ restaurant refusing to hire 17-year-old Zikerria Bellamy — specifically because she is transgender. And, in the process of discriminating against her, she received a voicemail message from one of the McDonalds’ managers, complete with an antigay pejorative:

“You went to (indistinguishable) McDonalds today. It doesn’t matter how many times you go down there: You will not get hired. We do not hire faggots.

“You lied to me. You told me you was a woman. And then you lied to me. You told me you were seventeen. I can’t believe you. You’re a lying brother (indistinguishable). How could you ever lie to me? We will never…”

By the way, I don’t use the the other f- word unless I’m quoting someone saying it. This is definitely a quote.

Maybe McDonalds corporate will again try to remind us that they are an lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) friendly organization, but individual restaurants seem to have a history of discriminating against LGBT people. Remember Kentucky’s “faggot” story? Remember New York’s Christina Sforza story? I do.

Let’s hope at least that McDonalds’ corporate folk jump in and fix this latest outbreak antitrans sentiment by one of their managers at their restaurants in the next two or three days. Maybe requiring new, lengthier, mandatory training for crewmembers and managers — even at their franchised restaurants — on their LGBT nondiscrimination policies?
