Gay Marriage Extremists Launch Intimidation Campaign Against Pro-Gay Marriage Professor

Douglas Laycock is a law professor at the University of Virginia, a supporter of gay marriage, but also a supporter of religious liberty. Therefore, he is now the target of an intimidation and harassment campaign from the intolerant gay left.

An outfit called GetEQUAL (led by its co-director Heather Cronk) has launched a national e-mail campaign attacking Laycock for his role in shoring up the legal arguments of those who support what it calls “religious bigotry.”

GetEQUAL has also recruited a University of Virginia law student (Greg Lewis) and an alum (Stephanie Montenegro) to send an open letter to Laycock asking him to consider the “real-world consequences that [his] work is having.” And they have submitted a Freedom of Information Act request seeking e-mails between Laycock and various right-wing and religious liberty groups.

Laycock has apparently committed the unforgivable Thoughtcrime of valuing religious liberty and freedom over the oh-so-delicate feelings of … I’m just going to say it… pansies. (Not used as a pejorative against their sexuality, but against their mewling, whiny, complete lack of emotional strength.)

I think it would be really constructive for him to hear how his work is being used to hurt the LGBTQ community. I don’t think he has any ill intent. I think he’s very thoughtful and moderate, and willing to hear both sides. But I think that everyone really has a lot to learn.

The Gay Leftist Thought Police are just echoing the anti-freedom of conscience attitude of Washington Post Columnist Johnathan Capehart.

[T]olerance, no, is not – it should not be a two-way street. It’s a one-way street. You cannot say to someone that who you are is wrong, an abomination, is horrible, get a room, and all of those other things that people said about Michael Sam, and not be forced — not forced, but not be made to understand that what you’re saying and what you’re doing is wrong.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech… except when gay people’s feelings are hurt.”– The 1st Amendment as construed in the Age of Obama.

  1. I think it would be really constructive for him to hear how his work is being used to hurt the LGBTQ community.

    I think it would be really constructive for the “LGBTQXYZ community” to get their act together so that work by Douglas Laycock and others does not “hurt” the LGBTQXYZ community.

    Perhaps the LGBTQXYZ community does not have a clear mission statement and procedural plan for changing the world view.

    Perhaps the LGBTQXYZ community needs to team up with NAMBLA, NARAL, Free Love Association, Esperanto, Born This Way and AMWAY to form an amalgamated union of victims who demand to be obeyed.

  2. I said it ten years ago, and I will say it again. Using the legal system to force acceptance of gays and lesbians is going to backfire, eventually, either in the form of legal reversals and suppression, or in societal breakdown, which will lead, eventually, to another society taking over which will be FAR less tolerant.

    Observe Europe and the Muslim communities. Think that can’t happen here? Guess again.

    I’ve always considered it a matter of amusement to see the gay activists first include lesbians with them (despite strong mysogenist tendencies amongst gays) then bisexuals (remember the uproar when a bisexual was kicked off a gay softball team?), then transsexuals (which just about EVERYONE feels uncomfortable around, especially when they enter the bathroom) and now Queer? What the heck does Queer mean?

    And yet, statistics seem to indicate that the entire group doesn’t make up more than 3% of the population. Yet, when questioned how many people are gay, the answer is 3%. How many are lesbians? 3%. How many are bisexual? 3%. How many are transsexual? 3%. That adds up to 12% in my book.

    I think they keep adding on to make themselves look more significant than they actually are.

    I don’t care what anyone says. Your political analysis is far superior to Dan Blatt’s. Thanks for calling a spade a spade.

  6. Dear God, the gay Left is turning into the unholy and tacky lovechild of the Cardassians and the Borg. How long before they completely self-destruct and the entire GLBT subculture gets a serious makeover due to outside forces?

  7. I think it is a mistake to call the GLBTconglomerate a subculture or a community. The only thing holding them together is the goal of nationwide gay marriage, which they think is the Holy Grail of their acceptance.

    Not only WON’T it be that, but if it is ever attained, just watch how quickly they turn on each other, especially against the Transsexuals.

  8. I saw the word “Homintern” on Mark Steyn’s website the other day… it fits.

  9. Another example of “one-way tolerance” from the Gay Left:

    “Even if you are gay, you have NO RIGHT to tell me that I shouldn’t be offended by the word ‘faggot.’

    And its variant:

    Cis people have NO RIGHT to tell me that I shouldn’t be offended if RuPaul’s show uses the term ‘she-mail‘.”

    Of course, LGBT scolds are perfectly happy to tell the entire world that they shouldn’t be offended by a same-sex kiss on ESPN, and so forth. (And, for that matter, some atheist scolds are happy to tell Christians that they shouldn’t be offended if someone opines that Jesus was a fictional rehash of Greek-myth archetypes.)

    In Saneworld, of course, Alex has every right to tell Bill that he’s ridiculous and silly to take offense at a particular word, and Bill has every right to retort that his taking offense is justified in this case.

    I don’t entirely agree — a lot of the Gay Left recognizes that beating on the “transphobia!” drum is job security for them.

    On a not-entirely unrelated note, apparently Chelsea Manning has a FB page now. (Though one shouldn’t rule out the possibility that the page is a partisan hoax by left-wingers hoping to sting right-wingers, or vice versa, and that Chelsea himself has no knowledge of it.)

  11. The reason there are more and more things added to LBGT is that they are trying to form a false consensus. I have seen a co workers ex wife(who worked at the same place) try to form a consensus for her crab basketing which if you read it you would think 5 people where on her side instead of just one by different descriptions.

  12. @ Steve: This false consensus will tear the GLBT “community” apart at the seams, and it’s already starting. When it happens for good, it won’t be pretty. If you need a reminder of what happens when groups with basically nothing in common are arbitrarily grouped together, look at the mess that is the former Yugoslavia.

  13. Laycock? Am I the only one who noticed that?
