From the article:
" ... NOM would be proudly supporting him regardless. Why? Because Ken Cuccinelli is a man of principle ... "
Of course, principles such as Equality, Inclusion, Freedom, etc. don't figure into the mix.
I know a few cops, their best friends are other cops. You have as much freedom as any other single person in this country.

These slanted articles calling traditional marriage adherents "opposition to marriage equality" are so obvious....
It is indeed obvious that they are against marriage equality for good American gay couples. Promoting harm and hatred, for no reason other than to line their pockets.

And they are still unable to come up with a single rational state interest in hurting gay folks and their families.

Sad stuff, but fortunately, their numbers are dwindling.

Your ACT-UP organization went on television and threatened to intentionally infect heterosexuals if the Reagan California administration didn't give them money. Not until after those threats were any heterosexuals identified with HIV/AIDS and soon after that, homosexuals started being arrested and incarcerated for the intentional infection of others with that disease.
In the same time frame, homosexuals were harassing and stalking members of the APA to force them to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness. Given the already established intentional infections, the APA succumbed to the homosexual terror. This is extremely well documented, even by homosexuals.
The same harassment and terrorist threats have been used by homosexuals to invade schools at even primary levels and invade libraries with pro-homosexual propaganda, which is really targeting and acclimating youth at younger and younger ages to allow you crazy perverts into their underwear... more cases of that showing up as you gain more "rights" in America and abroad.
Insignificantly, I do not visit all of the queer boards, but occasionally, when queers attempt to misrepresent themselves through bringing a number of their discussions to the main Topix forums, I will address the most pertinent issues.
Act Up was formed when the bigoted Republicans under Reagan refused to spend any health monies since it was a "queer disease." I'm sure you supported that position since it assured the death of more queers before any medical studies would be instigated. Act Up made the public aware of the unreasonable stance of the administration, and medical studies began which eventually came up with life saving medication. Thousands could have been saved if money had been allocated earlier, and you well know it. And don't start with the APA blackmail crap; you know it's bullshit.

Know any other tid bits of gay history you want to distort?

Prove it. Use VERIFIABLE AND REPUTABLE news sources, such as CNN to back up this ridiculous statement. CITE your sources.

Still living in the eighties? In your other post, you referenced some obscure actions by a few individuals in the 1980's. Are we really so well behaved as a group that you can find nothing more recent to attack us with?
Just two nights ago, baseball fans were overturning cars. Why don't you spend more time worrying about baseball?
You obviously aren't up on gay culture. Gay bars are completely disappearing from the landscape. Our youth mix comfortably in clubs with everyone else. And guess what? Nobody gets into fights anymore when gay guys and straight guys get their signals crossed. The only gay bars left host a bunch of old fuddy duddies like myself.
The average age in a gay bar has gone from 25 to 50. When my generation dies, they only place you'll find a gay bar is Key West or Provincetown, plus maybe Alabama because it still isn't safe to hold your boyfriend's hand in public there. But that may change faster than anyone expects.
Get ready to evolve or die.
That deserves repeating.

ActUp actually had less real positive effects than this did:

It was an embarrassment that they just couldn't handle. It was, and remains, the most beautiful and perfect protest ever conceived.

I can marry the person I love, and we can live where we choose without harassment?

I am not sure that average people knew about the quilt. ACT UP, even if unpopular, made some noise and shook things up. All serious movements have to do a little of that.

Thirty years later, people are still talking about the rather harmless--though sometimes offensive--stunts that ACT UP pulled. They don't seem to be a tenth as upset--if they're even aware--of the violence and destruction that accompanies every World Series and Superbowl championship.

When we had the quilt here more than 20,000 came to view it. When my partner who educated thousands of people in our city more than 500 people attended the funeral. And we had only lived here four years. The funeral was televised. We still remain a low incidence city because of our work.

ActUp trades on the Post Hoc fallacy.
