Chris Kluwe and MN for Marriage's Andy Parrish engage in Twitter war of words

Categories: Chris Kluwe, GLBT
Said Kluwe: "People like [Parrish] are exactly what's wrong with our system. Tries to call me out then won't engage."
Last night, Chris Kluwe -- subject of this week's City Pages cover feature, "Chris Kluwe takes a stand" -- and Minnesota for Marriage Deputy Campaign Manager Andy Parrish went at each other on Twitter. The exchange culminated in Parrish following the lead of other Minnesota Republicans and refusing to debate Kluwe about the marriage amendment.

As you'd probably expect, Twitter users following the Kluwe-Parrish exchange largely sided with Kluwe, prompting Parrish, this morning, to remark: "If you're interested in seeing #Tolerance and #Diversity look at my twitter mentions from last night."

Here's the blow-by-blow:

Parrish then clarified his "good luck" remark, saying, "Good luck Thursday [i.e., when the Vikings play the Bucs] that is!"

Wow, what happened to Chris Kluwe? 

The before and after almost look like he would be a good fit for a meth billboard.

Bigots like Andy Parrish are cowards and liars.  Tea Party Republican bigots that put this amendment won't debate because their arguement is complete nonsense.  The only reason this is on the ballot is to exploit the stupid bigots that make up the base of the Republican Party.  I will never understand how people like Andy Parrish can be so evil and cowardly.   I think we need an amendment to strip the tax exempt status of churches and organizations that support bigoted political actions like this.   Start with the Catholics.  See how they like the majority ganging up on the minority.  Point out to the evangelical crazy Christians this is a way to get rid of heretic churches in Minnesota.

 @MicheleBachmann "an amendment to strip the tax exempt status of churches and organizations that support bigoted political actions like this"


But only churches that support bigoted actions, because that in itself wouldn't be bigoted...

@MicheleBachmann: no way that's CP's Michele Bachmann saying something intelligent. His dad must've logged on under his name


 @MicheleBachmann Yes! We could put a great dent in our deficit if we tax the churches! Why don't I get a tax break for NOT having an imaginary friend in the sky and being able to think for myself? Please GAWD! Save us from the Christians!!!!!!
