Another Reason For You NOT To Vote GOP in 2012

Hmm, missed this one when it was originally written in August because I was focused on other developments, but better late than never. 

According to Addicting Info.com seems as though the peeps in the conservafool extremist National Organization for Marriage have crafted a pledge they are trying to get GOP candidates to sign that seeks to have a presidential commission formed to investigate the rainbow community should they be elected..

The pledge reads as follows.

I, [candidate name], pledge to the American people that if elected President, I will:

[…] establish a presidential commission on religious liberty to
investigate and document reports of Americans who have been harassed or
threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to
donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if
needed.

Translation, a McCarthyesque commission to intimidate LGBT people who oppose NOM’s hatin’ on same gender marriage.   

And why should we be concerned about the National Organization For Marriage?   When you have an organization who has a board member who has advocated the overthrow of the federal governmentas an appropriate response to pro-marriage equality decisions and the response of NOM is cricket chirping silence, well, your antenna as a liberal progressive needs to be up.

‘Religious Liberty’ my azz.   That’s conservaspeak for we wanna hide our bigotry, hatred and intolerance of  everybody who doesn’t look, love, think or act like us behind the Bible and cherrypick scriptures to do so. .

At the time they complied the post the people who have signed it are Rep. Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. 

Big surprise.  

Is November 6, 2012 here yet?
