Hall: "My morals don't change because our culture does. Moral correctness always trumps political correctness."
Sen. Dan Hall, R-Bloomington, took heat last summer when he suggested gay marriage supporters are unpatriotic.

Many months later, he's still as anti-gay-marriage as ever, but now he's making his case by suggesting marriage equality will somehow destroy the very fabric of American society.

Here's a tweet Hall published last week: The "HGibson" Hall quotes is Hutton Gibson, the controversial father of Mel Gibson.

That specific quote, in fact, was taken from a post Gibson wrote on his own website defending a radio appearance where he called Pope Benedict XVI a homosexual. Here it is (emphasis mine):
Saturday, August 7 at 5 p.m. PDT I participated in a broadcast of The Political Cesspool radio program. Asked whether I thought "Pope" Benedict XVI is homosexual, I responded: "I certainly do." I was amazed by the reaction in the press. It must have been a slow day so a hardly uncommon opinion ballooned into headlines.

None of the media reacted much to what I developed in the rest of the hour - to the fact that the Catholic Church had been infiltrated from the top by organized enemies bent on total destruction - not only of the Church but of all morality.

Tolerance is the last virtue of a depraved society. When an immoral society has blatantly and proudly violated all the commandments, it insists upon one last virtue, tolerance for its immorality. It will not tolerate condemnation of its perversions. It creates a whole new world in which only the intolerant critic of intolerable evil is evil.

Sodomy and pederasty are among the vilest of perversions. They have no right to exist. Perpetrators of these crimes have no right to commit them, no rights permitting their perversions, and no right whatsoever to an unsullied reputation. They are scum who must be exposed for the protection of the communities they infest. Their sole right is to early cremation.

The absolute worst of these criminals are those who hide their vices behind clerical robes, and any and all superiors who cover up their crimes instead of defrocking and prosecuting them. And the worst of these superiors is the man in charge of dealing with the "problem".
Almost makes Bill O'Reilly sound like Aristotle, doesn't it?

   BSA Prez's Faith Promotes Porn !

                    by Aaronita Smith

     Yes, the religion of Wayne Perry (who's been behind gay Boy Scouts) actually promotes illustrated MALE porn!
     Scholars, including Mormon ones, know of a hard-core porn sketch in the Mormon-approved "Book of Abraham."
     This Book is part of the "Pearl of Great Price" which, along with the "Book of Mormon," is LDS-authorized scripture.
     Figure 7 in Facsimile 2 in "Abraham" shows two beings facing each other. Joseph Smith described them as the "Holy Ghost" and "God" (the Father), the latter showing an erect male sex organ.
     Mormons were offended when Smith's newspaper published this sketch in 1842, so the phallic part was whited out for a century until the "restored" LDS church restored the X-rated drawing in 1981!
     LDS scholars have hushed up the fact that the "Book of Abraham" is not about the biblical Abraham but actually portrays ancient Egyptian documents showing occult obscene sketches.
     Those scholars also know that Smith fraudulently altered them so that he could (blasphemously) portray the Christian trinity as sex fiends in order to promote polygamy among his followers!
     For more info see "Book of Abraham" (Wikipedia). And check out the Tanners' "Mormonism - Shadow or Reality?" which reproduces the original Egyptian sketches Smith plagiarized and exploited. Also Yahoo "Facts From Mormons (By a Utah Resident)" and "What LDS Leaders Say."


the whole thing is messy, the left is using the black civil rights movement to persuade people, if they are going to do that then everything will be fair game to use in this grand battle royale.

I guess that we have to point one more time that you don't have to approve of someone's behaviour to allow them to marry. 

Maybe you murdered your parents with an axe. You can still get married. 

Maybe you swindled elderly people out of their life savings. You can still get married. 

The idea that a marriage licence is some kind of reward for socially-acceptable behaviour is beyond stupid. It's becoming quite obvious that the opposition to SSM is not at all based on some kind of existential "threat to traditional marriage". They just really dislike the behaviour of homosexuals. 

Do we deny gays a building permit if they wish to remodel their home? No, we don't. That is not some kind of stamp of approval on everything that they may do, however. It's just a building permit. And a marriage licence is pretty much the same thing, as far as the State is concerned. 

So, until we see conservatives demanding that gays be banned from having drivers licences, fishing licences, cosmetologist licences, business licences, and contractors licences, this idea that a marriage licence bestows magical approval will remain profoundly stupid.

@nkmk212009 It's just funny to me how all conservatives are just completely stupid crazy people.  What does that say about their arguments and ability to govern? 


@MicheleBachmann @nkmk212009  they are just fighting for tradition that is their nature.  I think government should just stay out of marriage since it is a religous thing anyways, that is why it is so messy government getting involved in religion.
