Watch Out Farah! The Gay Mafia Is After You! by Dirty Pillows Podcast

Joe. My.God

Earlier today we learned that three-time Just For Men Olympics gold medalist Joseph Farah had been detained at Dulles International because he "forgot" to take a loaded revolver out of his carry-on bag. In a post written for World Net Daily this afternoon, Farah reveals that he carries a loaded handgun at all times because he's afraid of the murderous gay activists that might be sent his way by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Well, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said just about the same thing at the fateful March For Marriage one week ago:

In fact, for those who support the conjugal understanding of marriage, the attacks have not stopped at rhetoric. Simply for taking a stand for marriage as it has been understood in every human society for millennia, people have lost their jobs, lost their livelihoods, and have suffered other types of retribution, including physical violence. (emphasis mine).

Cordileone is, of course, referring to the immense onslaught by one unbalanced individual, Floyd Corkins, on the Family Research Council.* Corkins cited the Southern Poverty Law Center as one of his rampage resources. Corkins was, of course, the Byron Williams of the culture wars, but no one on the Right mentioned that during the media coverage. Righteous assassination is very one-sided.

Decline and Fall

At first glance, the religious liberty angle looks like a savvy strategy. After all, active Christians (including many Catholics and other non-evangelicals) far outnumber avowed secularists. But it is something of a leap of faith to believe that millions of Christian voters will prioritize religious liberty over, say, health care or education. - The Decline of Evangelical Politics, Steven Miller.

Yes, the strategy of religious liberty may very well be going the way of other strategies: gay marriage as a destruction to society, gays as insatiable sexual predators with Mafia-style tactics. Every harbinger of calamity due to the gay rights movement showed up at the national March for Marriage to bolster those strategies.

Unfortunately, everyone agrees (except maybe Mike Huckabee, Archbishop Cordileone and Brianl Brown/NOM) that the national March for Marriage was a colossal failure. What was touted as a huge mobilization of the righteous wound up to be about 1500 Hispanics bused in for the event sponsored by NOM, the National Organization for Marriage. 1500 Hispanics and assorted ethnic groups clumped cautiously before the Capitol carrying signs like "Gay Sex Leads to Adult Diapers."

Ten thousand? Hmm... one, two, three, four... by Rev. Dan Vojir

It was "driving a wedge"**, of course, but also driving an almost empty bus over a precipice to irrelevance.

The Cordileone Affair

When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi heard that San Francisco's own Archbishop Cordileone was to be a featured speaker, she released a firestorm of indignation when she wrote a letter to the prelate strongly requesting that he not attend the event. Political wags had insisted that Pelosi herself had "excommunicated" the archbishop and they hoped events would proceed to turn the excommunication towards Pelosi instead. But it was Cordileone's response that demonstrated a shallowness beyond believable.
