If a Federal Judge in Ohio can declare all in one….

by Skip April 25, 2014

If an Ohio based federal judge can mandate that all homosexual marriages licensed in other States must be recognized in Ohio (which does not recognize such), why shouldn’t my Second Amendment right, as practiced here in NH, right be recognized everywhere, too, before the Law?  Gotta hate judicial activism. (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

We’ve seen the result of totalitarian thinking before…

by Skip April 6, 2014

In the Land of the Free, how free are we?  Once again, the sorry story of Brendan Eich is a great object lesson.  Over at Patheos, the Anchoress has a good piece on this growing intolerance of groupthink (emphasis mine, reformatted): If the headline strikes some as offensive, it will nevertheless remain, because that’s the […]

Notable Quote – Andrew Sullivan

by Skip April 6, 2014

On speaking about Brendan Eich and Mozilla: Will he now be forced to walk through the streets in shame? Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me – as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society. If this is the gay rights movement today – hounding our opponents with a […]

Tyler Deaton must have done the “Happy Dance” over that

by Skip April 6, 2014

“That” being the retribution against the long time Chief Technology Officer Brendan Eich and an extremely short term stint as Chief Executive Officer of Mozilla, the open software organization that is behind the FireFox browser and Thunderbird email program (both which I have used for years, but more on that later).  As I said before, […]

Blogline of the Day – another perspective on campaign finance

by Skip April 6, 2014

Why Campaign Finance Should Be Anonymous: If you support secret ballots, you should oppose campaign finance law. – Walter Hudson And, I will remind you, at a time when President Obama held the same views.  Such a demonstration of REAL Tolerance – Obama was given the time to “evolve” but the militant gay movement wanted […]

Anyone Else Tired of the Gaystapo Yet?

Thumbnail image for Anyone Else Tired of the Gaystapo Yet?

You can’t claim to be the tolerant ones when you use religious bigotry to put someone out of business, quite often when there are dozens of other businesses that provide the exact same service within a reasonable distance in modern America, just because you think you can. Well Sweet Cakes by Melissa agrees with me.  […]

Chris Kluwe: Disagree with me on homosexual marriage? I want to destroy your way of making a living.

by Skip January 5, 2014

“…it’s to make sure that Mike Priefer never holds a coaching position again in the NFL, and ideally never coaches at any level.“ That is what Chris Kluwe, gay marriage proponent and now former Minnesota Viking punter, is now desiring for his former coach at the Vikings.  That Priefer should no longer have a way […]

Gay Marriage And The Supreme Court: What Will Follow?

by Rick Olson March 26, 2013

Using the word “gay” as a euphemism for homosexual is fine I guess. But I’ve always thought a word like “fabulous” might have been better. Sure would be a lot easier to tell your parents, “Mom, Dad: I’m fabulous! And my friends are fabulous, too! — Michael Greer As I pointed out in my September 2012 […]

Stupidity, Civility, And The Continued Assault on Free Staters

by Steve MacDonald December 27, 2012

This was originally part of my previous post on pull quotes I found amusing but turned into something else that would have distracted from the previous post being purposefully short and the other quotes getting a shot a some discussion. … In the Union Leader article,  “Free State Movement Not Embraced by All Granite Stater’s” […]

New Hampshire Republicans for Freedom & Equality – without outside gay money, you’d have nothing!

by Skip September 7, 2012

Grokster Steve has the deserved outrage from Cornerstone here – they are claiming that $100K contribution to New Hampshire Republicans for Freedom & Equality from Peter Singer is an illegal contribution to this PAC.  My take is:  So, taking Big Bucks from the Big Time moderate is YOUR end to his means?  Or is this […]

Tolerance

by Steve MacDonald August 10, 2012

Two Massachusetts Gay Groups will not be participating in the Nashua Pride Fest this Saturday because the Nashua Chick-fil-A is providing 200 chicken sandwiches to the event. The groups claim that by accepting the donated food event organizers are promoting the Chik-fil-A brand, even though the owner of the local restaurant supports Gay Pride events […]

Selective Intolerance

“National day of intolerance,” glibly chided Shepard Smith of Fox News a few days ago in reference to the latest in the culture wars: the national Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day–geez, they’re so biased at Fox.  For those of you that pay more attention to the throwing of badminton matches, swim meets, or flies collecting on your […]

‘Properties’ of Marriage

by Steve MacDonald May 18, 2012

Marriage is always a great topic to visit in New Hampshire.  It irritates so many people on so many sides.  But if we ever put it to a vote of the people, New Hampshire would join the ranks of every other state to define “marriage” as a union between one man and one woman.  Which […]

See what happens when you let ‘the folk’ actually decide the big social issues?

by Skip May 8, 2012

Courts in multiple states have oft been the agency by which gay marriage has forced upon the residents of those states – the rest have been by Legislatures that oft have been bombarded by “gay money” advocacy groups as we saw here in NH. Let the people vote?  All the people – where the votes […]

Guest post by Peter Bearse, Ph.d: “On Gay Marriage”

by Skip March 28, 2012

“ON GAY “MARRIAGE” The issue of gay marriage is not a civil rights issue. The civil rights movement arose because of racial discrimination that blatantly foreclosed or limited black opportunities to obtain the basics of human sustenance, including education, housing, financing, employment, and fair pay for equal work. There is no comparison between the gay […]

So, gay activists, where do you think this will end up? You’ve started the snowball rolling down the hill…

by Skip March 24, 2012

(H/T: Karen) Suitable since the repeal of the gay marriage law failed here in NH. I take an old fashioned view of marriage – the traditional one-man-one-woman definition of such.  Two people, two genders. Now, there will be the h8 mail inbound, I’m sure – there was the last time I brought up the “slippery […]

Email Doodlings: HB437 – My take on repeal of gay marriage

by Skip February 28, 2012

On the same email thread that NH State Senator Ray White’s missive came from came this question: Not sure why we’re wasting time and political capital on this issue, this year (an election year for God’s sake)…with an almost 100% certainty of a Lynch veto and failure to override… At first blush, the intent behind […]

JP Marzullo Comes Out of the Closet?

by Steve MacDonald November 3, 2011

To be fair he may be an outstanding Republican by every other measure, and that’s great, but he’s clearly got a blind spot when it comes to this issue and the idea of rights, and it invalidates his entire testimony. He is emotionally compromised. So much so that he ignores the real problem. The push for “Gay marriage,” like most other Democrat campaigns, has nothing to do with the contractual union of two people who think they love each other.

Tim Gill won’t be happy.

Why Just One?
