Yeah, this is a great strategy to show that gay people are emotionally balanced:
A horde of glitter-wielding gay “barbarians” on Thursday paid a visit to a clinic owned by GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and her husband, Marcus. . . .
Once the horde was notified that Marcus, a strategist for his wife’s presidential campaign, was not at the clinic, their leader told the group, “All right, folks, Marcus isn’t coming out so we’re gonna have to act like barbarians.”
With that, the smiling group of about 10 showered the waiting room with glitter while chanting, “You can’t pray away the gay, baby I was born this way.”
Fortunately, these juveniles in need of venting their rage in the public square and drawing attention to themselves are not representative of the gay community. Let’s hope that gay leaders denounce their childish antics.
This is not to deny these folks the opportunity to criticize Mr. Bachmann and the practices at his clinic, but to criticize their manner of taking issue with him. Indeed, we should take him to task for his comments on the “sinful nature” of homosexual behavior, but in a civil manner, likely to win favor for our arguments, not gain sympathy for the man under attack.
Taking issue with these clowns, Sister Toldjah contrasts their actions with GOProud’s attempts to meet with Mrs. Bachmann:
Whatever you feel about “gay rights” issues, you have to respect [GOProud Chairman Chris] Barron’s position. It’s amazing what happens once you take liberal narcissism out of the equation, isn’t it? Gay conservatives want answers about Bachmann’s various policy positions, including issues of interest to the gay community – and, unlike HRC and the like, Chris Barron is going to get them.
Then again, storming the yards of private homes and stages of invited guest speakers and the lobbies of legitimate businesses has become standard operating mode for radical liberals and their drone-like minions when they can’t get what they want, as we’ve seen widely over the last few years as the entitlement mentality of the left rears its ugly head again and again.
Read the whole thing. The tactics these folks are using against the Bachmanns coupled with the excessive media scrutiny of the charismatic Congressman are beginning to make me sympathize with a couple for whom, until recently, I had little regard.
Look, I think “reparative therapy” is built on misunderstanding and promoted with deception. Let’s address some of its proponents’ misconceptions about homosexuality and their minuscule success rate and not engage in antics which might generate sympathize for its proponents.
