Bigot of the Week Award: August 5, The Unholy Trinity

5 Aug

3 Little Bigots

It was very difficult to read the news straight from the NOM website, but TSM has to expose this type of bigotry. The dubious honor of BWA is shared this week by the Unholy Trinity: Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Mitt Romney.  All three signed NOM’s marriage pledge.  Does someone have a bucket? I need to spit up. What a travesty when you have the three leading Republican/Teahadist Presidential candidates signing a pledge to discriminate and preclude people’s civil rights.  Initially, Romney was not going to sign the pledge, as reported here on TSM.  Imagine that, he changed his mind again!

The three bigots have pledged to:

  • Support and send to the states a federal marriage amendment defining marriage as one man and one woman,
  • Defend DOMA in court,
  • Appoint judges and an attorney general who will respect the original meaning of the Constitution,
  • Appoint a presidential commission to investigate harassment of traditional marriage supporters,
  • Support legislation that would return to the people of D.C. their right to vote for marriage.
Reading the pledge has nearly rendered me speechless with rage!  “Harassment of traditional marriage supporters,”  how do these people make up such lies? The “original meaning of the Constitution?”  I thought the Constitution was a living document. Those of us within the LGBT community should not be the only ones scared here!  It may be us they are targeting now, but I can guarantee you they will be after another population once they stick those pink triangles on us and send us to the camps. How ironic that these three feel comfortable threatening our relationships while pretending that love and commitment threaten theirs.
