Courtesy of goodasyou.org, Focus on the Family is running a fundraising ad that presents an opportunity no one should miss out on. (Or as Winston Churchill would say, out on which no one should miss.)
While normally a $40 donation will (somehow) help save a god-created-and-blessed heterosexual relationship, now they're kindly offering a twofer! Yes, that same $40 donation will now (somehow) help save not one but two god-blah-blah-blah heterosexual relationships. This reminds me of collections that were constantly taken up in my Catholic grade school. Every $5.00 collected would buy a "pagan baby." Such bargains these Christians offer!

What I never understood was how many guys I skated with professionally were gay AND Catholic.  (I quit going to church when the celebrity suck-up minister told me I was going to go to hell if I went into showbiz. I was slowly sliding away from that Bapturd church, anyway, so it was no big loss.) 

Why would anyone be loyal to an ideology that taught them, starting in elementary school, that they were dreadful sinners who didn't deserve to live?

You should have seen them backstage crossing themselves when the overture began....  I did NOT laugh; I loved them too much to hurt their feelings.  But they puzzled me.

What Catholics or any of them don't realise is that in a different time and place they could be certified as in need of medical supervision. Pathological delusion is not going to be considered socially acceptable indefinitely.

Bertold, those Catholics are so clueless.  They claim that we mock their video because we are threatened by its message and that we're trying to silence them.  They have no f-ing idea that we're totally making fun of them.  They have no idea that they themselves are entirely responsible for their own decline and irrelevance.  We're not silencing them, they're voices are fewer.

So, the Catholics are actually proud of their skankily scurrilous video. 

Per Catholic Vote's latest missive:

Left-wing websites didn't expect this from the Catholics. Speak the truth with love? What??? Catholics are supposed to be bigots and full of hate. 


Our video has logged over 1.3 million views in 10 days. Seeing the power of our message, LGBT activists have now mounted a massive campaign to mock, ridicule, and shame us. They have used every curse word (and more!) to attack us personally. They threatened our staff with phone calls. And now some are openly calling for the persecution of Christians.

In sum, they are proving our point.

With the Supreme Court effectively eliminating marriage from our civil law, LGBT activists are now out to eliminate all dissent. And they have orchestrated an online mob to go after the video, and anyone who likes it.

Our video is a huge threat, because it calls for tolerance and respect for everyone. For example, here are some comments from viewers in support of our video:

“I don't see what all the fuss is about... They are just saying that they're not for gay marriage...I'm fine with people having different opinions.”

“...it's their opinions and we should respect it...”

“...the whole point is that it is okay for people to disagree with one another...


But is it really ok to disagree?

Our video contained a simple message: Everyone has a right to express their opinion on marriage. Defenders of natural marriage should not be shunned, shamed, or labeled as bigots. If you believe in marriage, you are not a bigot, and you deserve to be respected.

But many LGBT activists don't want more debate. They want to people like you and me to shut up. They want you to be afraid to speak out.

Religion tells you how YOU should behave.  In the US, that does NOT mean that you then get to tell everyone else how to behave.  THAT is Freedom OF and FROM Religion.

This is the message that most believers who disparage gay rights have yet to get.

Here is my favorite reaction to the original video on Queerty's Website:

Comment by Daniel Wachenheim on July 4, 2015 at 9:24am

More on the CatholicVote stupid video - in which young actors pretend to be persecuted because they are against marriage equality, and get all tearful about it.   "I'm a little different" "I haved gay friends" -

TheYoungTurks had their say-

Really discussed well, I thought. Although I'm a little different. One of the commenters on that video said - "Gay people are unnatural and will burn in hell. I'm good friends with lots of gay people." Which I ASSUME is satire of the video.
Another parody.


Another commentary.


As for the original video, currently 29720 "down" votes, and 2364 "up" votes.

Really for me a take home lesson of, people are way too sophisticated to fall for a slick disingenuous "O I'm such a victim" bit of Catholic bigotry and mendacity with nice "Chariots of Fire" type background music.
