The Temptation of St. Carrie

WTF? a third-rate skank 4 Jesus from the lamer portions of San Diego County utters a barely intelligible defense of what she learned in youth group between fingerbangings in an effing beauty contest and now she’s the hero of the Right? it is as if Joe the Plumber and Miss South Carolina have merged.

does she even realize that nobody of any worth to society except homosexual men (and now hipsters) has ever WATCHED the Miss America Pageant?

WTF do we even care abt this story????? unlike in the days when anita bryant ejaculated messages about the family, today GLBT Americans are relatively safe and have massive public support across the civilized portions of the nation. if HRC gave up this h8 crymez joke and actually campaigned for civil rights (what we pay them for) the issue would be solved and Carrie Prejean and all her friends (the idiots, not the conservatives, though there is a fair amount of overlap) would be deported to a reservation in Nevada.

Concerned that we are too concerned about a stupid whore who’s this week’s head of the crazy Southern (and Fundie/MRMN/TradCath) party.

UPDATE: HRC is wasting no time getting back to doing absolutely nothing this session. glad to see the meaningless Shepard Bill may finally become a law. Meanwhile, my br0 can get evicted cuz he’s ghey.

Nigeria finally gets around to banning gay marriage

One of the seven states currently executing gay people is on the road to formally criminalizing gay marriage, providing them a way to introduce even more draconian measures, according to a press release by several charities and human rights NGOs:

The Bill would introduce criminal penalties for marriage ceremonies between persons of the same sex as well as for persons witnessing or helping to formalize such a marriage. This is in contravention of the Nigerian Constitution and inconsistent with Nigeria’s obligations under international and regional human rights treaties which the country has ratified.

Prohibiting gays from marrying one another, as in Utah, is quite a bit different from this. I think all Americans, regardless of their opinion on gay marriage, should condemn this action, which goes far beyond banning gay marriage and actually calls for the punishment gay couples. This could set dangerous precedents, as there are currently 90 or so countries legally prohibiting their gay citizens from coming out or being outed. With several of Nigeria’s states currently executing gays, this law could have horrible repurcusions across the third world.
