Shocking… simply shocking. I never would have guessed! Funny, the Gay Leftists want marriage but hate the institutions of religion… and they protest against the war (one in where we were attacked repeatedly), yet want gays to be allowed in the military. Can you say bi-polar?
Some Gay Groups To Join Iraq War Protest in DC – Washington Blade
United for Peace & Justice, a coalition of more than 1,300 local and national groups, is calling for an end to the war and the immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. From Sept. 24-26, the coalition plans to stage demonstrations across the country.
According to its Web site, UPJ coordinated more than 790 anti-war demonstrations worldwide on Feb. 15, 2003, including a New York City rally that brought out at least 500,000 people.
Pride at Work, the gay caucus within the AFL-CIO, is among the organizations preparing to march against the war.
Howard Wallace, vice president of the San Francisco labor council of the AFL-CIO, said gay groups and labor groups on the West Coast are collaborating on social justice issues, from the fight for same-sex marriage rights to ending the U.S. presence in Iraq.
Linking the Iraq war to a generalized assault on civil liberties, the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force opposed the war as part of the “Keep America Safe: Win Without War” coalition that included the National Organization for Women and the NAACP. The Task Force is backing the anti-war march by e-mailing supporters and calling on them to participate, according to a spokesperson for the group.
Here’s a real shocker for you…. the protests in DC are on the same day as the Socialist protests in the United Kingdom on the same topic. You mean our gay “leaders” are associated with socialist groups around the world? Huh.
I agree with the wise gay rights activist Frank Kameny who is quoted in the article: “If you try to do everything, you end up not doing anything very well.” Amen, brother.
UPDATE: I apologize for neglecting to mention that Log Cabin Republicans supported the war in Iraq and Chris Barron is quoted in the article.
“Log Cabin is committed to a strong and confident foreign policy,” Christopher Barron, political director of the Log Cabin Republicans wrote in an e-mail. “We support global efforts to win the war on terror. We wouldn’t comment on the propriety of the actions of other organizations. Obviously, each organization is going to do whatever it believes is appropriate in light of its mission.”
