Tea Party Activist: ‘Gay Supremacy Is Becoming a Monster That Carries Greater Evils Than White Supremacy Ever Did’
Her post, which Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips emailed to members today, also makes the absurd claim that white supremacy was “quickly put down” in America and argues that the gay rights activists are motivated by “hate” and bent on their opponents’ “utter annihilation.”
Baker explains that gay rights advocates are worse than white supremacists because “I could disagree with the beliefs of white supremacist and still hold to Biblical views about life, marriage and sexuality. Many people in America fought against their own kind in order to rid us of this hateful group but Gay supremacist have bullied every sector of our nation and now sit as the giant bully against all Americans who disagree with their radical agenda.”
When white supremacy tried to make a mark in American history it was viciously attacked quickly put down by the people of our nation . But Gay Supremacy is becoming a monster that carries greater evils than white supremacy ever did. White Supremacy was focused on how a group of people felt about another group of people. They created various barriers for those they hated and their views about their superiority to others provided the frame work for the citizens of this nation to search their hearts and understand that God has created every person in His image. However Gay Supremacy’s hate reaches much farther than a specific group of people. Their [sic] is no common ground that can be reached. Their [sic] is no searching of the heart or consideration of God’s principles. Their hate is generated only by self centeredness [sic] and hate for anyone who disagrees with them.
Science has conclusively proven low intelligence, ignorance and illiteracy are major causes of bigotry. Considering her seeming inability to use the English language correctly, it would be fair to surmise all of these seem to be the font for her particular brand of bigotry.
It is also fair to point out - that if Judson Philips, and other Tea Party leaders propagate this kind of hatred and bigotry, then the greater bulk, i.e. - the majority of the Tea Party, is also full of hateful bigots. If it were not, then they simply would not stand for this.
Btw, Judson Philips is a bigot. It may be redundant to say so - but people of that ilk are allergic to the bigot label, and it makes them cry, which is why we should point out at every opportunity, that they are indeed bigots.
I’n fact - I am schadenfreude he is dead. Just as I was when Falwell died. These people spend their time, energy, and talents impugning, persecuting, discriminating against, and attempting to destroy the wellbeing and self actualization of women, GLTBI people, Muslims, Jews, and those who stand up for them, et. al.
It is not wrong to feel relief and solace in the fact that the world is a better place without these horrible people.
I do not weep for them - nor should you.
However, it would be both moral and ethical to spend time making sure we never forget how bad a legacy these people left us. Destroying the character of bad men (or women) who seek to destroy others for nothing other than their sexuality or gender, is the right thing to do,
Burn in hell Phelps, but then, we wont get that lucky, because according to Phelps, that is where the gays are having a party…
I am happy there is one less bigot to contend with….. and I am not sorry for that.
A proposed South Carolina state budget for the upcoming fiscal year includes nearly $70,000 in funding cuts for two public colleges that assigned books addressing gay and lesbian themes. State Representative Garry Smith (R) originally advocated the measure that would take away $52,000 from the College of Charleston and $17,142 from the University of South Carolina Upstate. The House passed its full $24 billion budget with a 115-2 preliminary vote Tuesday and approved it for the Senate on Wednesday.
For its first-year summer reading program, the College of Charleston assigned Fun Home, an illustrated memoir that documents the writer’s experience coming to terms with her sexuality in small-town Pennsylvania. A 2006 piece in The New York Times Book Review described author Alison Bechdel’s memoir as “a story about a daughter trying to understand her father through the common and unspoken bond of their homosexuality.” Bechdel’s father, a closeted gay man, dies in a car accident after his daughter comes out to him.
Students at South Carolina Upstate read Out Loud: The Best of Rainbow Radio, a collection of stories about the state’s first gay and lesbian radio show. A summary on the university’s first-year program page recalls an enthusiastic opening segment on the station: “For far too long, talk radio airwaves have been dominated by the people who talk about us. Starting this fall, we speak for ourselves!”
Governor Nikki Haley (R) did not offer a specific comment on the book bans: “We haven’t looked at all the details of the budget yet,” she told The State. “I don’t want to get into the details of what the House did because, once the Senate gets it, sometimes they change that.”
One of the classic images from evolutionary theory is of two males smashing each other up to compete for the chance to fertilize a female. Scientists have spent over a century studying this kind of male competition, but new discoveries reveal that competition between females is just as important.
As I woke up this morning, I realized that Jesus Christ, living as a human being, had a penis. (And, presumably, testicles.)
Even if He was perfectly chaste throughout His life, I wonder what impact that penis and presumable sex-drive had on His ministry and mission. Do we see any indications in His words about sexuality? Or is it just ignored?
So, yeah, I’m thinking of Jebus’s dong today.

Now, as some background, out there in the stupider parts of the Internet, there are dudes who think of themselves as ‘alpha males.’ My experience with these fellows is that they tend to be ignorant, status-anxious and undersocialized; they tend to mask their various panic attacks about race, gender and sexuality by maintaining those panic attacks are in fact a sign of their superiority. They disdain those who are comfortable with a world in which diversity is respected and encouraged — especially those who are men — and call them ‘beta’ or ‘gamma’ males and/or describe them as ‘rabbits’ or some other species which they presume to be frightened or prey.
With that in mind, for those of us who are comfortable with diversity, who try not to be racist, or sexist, or homophobic, who don’t see the world as an apocalyptic zero-sum battle to the death between ourselves and whomever we try to hide our confused fear of by considering them as lesser beings, who aren’t in fact appallingly ignorant bigoted shitballs every single waking hour of the day, may I present to you an avatar — an icon, if you will, of who we are and how we choose to live our lives:
EDITED TO ADD: Yes, Gamma Rabbit, who likes people as they are, fears no one no matter how they live their lives, and who is comfortable with himself and his own personal values of kindness, tolerance and diversity. Sure, there are some who look down on him and his ways, but you know what? Gamma Rabbit knows that those people are kooky, silly, wacky racist sexist homophobic dipshits, and aside from looking forward to the day when they might pull their heads out and join the rest of the human race, lets them alone to do their own thing. Because Gamma Rabbit has other, better people and things to think about.
Just because a woman is a nun doesn’t mean she is immune to sexual violence or possible impregnation, or STD transmittal.. She can get breast and ovarian cancer. She needs the same health care other women need. She is very aware of the issues surrounding women, not only because of her work, but because she, herself, is a women.
This interview from NPR shows the sanity and humanity of the Women Religious:
… .”We would question, however, any policy that is more pro-fetus than actually pro-life. If the rights of the unborn trump all of the rights of all of those who are already born, that is a distortion, too — if there’s such an emphasis on that. However, we have sisters who work in right-to-life issues. We also have many, many ministries that support life. We dedicate to our lives to those on the margins of society, many of whom are considered throwaway people: the impaired, the chronically mentally ill, the elderly, the incarcerated, to the people on death row. We have strongly spoken out against the death penalty, against war, hunger. All of those are right-to-life issues. There’s so much being said about abortion that is often phrased in such extreme and such polarizing terms that to choose not to enter into a debate that is so widely covered by other sectors of the Catholic Church — and we have been giving voice to other issues that are less covered but are equally as important.”
On the criticism from the Vatican regarding human sexuality
“We have been, in good faith, raising concerns about some of the church’s teachings on sexuality. The problem being that the teaching and interpretation of the faith can’t remain static and really needs to be reformulated, rethought in light of the world we live in. And new questions and new realities [need to be addressed] as they arise. And if those issues become points of conflict, it’s because Women Religious stand in very close proximity to people at the margins, to people with very painful, difficult situations in their lives. That is our gift to the church. Our gift to the church is to be with those who have been made poorer, with those on the margins. Questions there are much less black and white because human realities are much less black and white. That’s where we spend our days.”
We need to hear from the men, too.
For every single woman who’s ever had an abortion, there’s a man somewhere in the story. For every woman who was able to delay motherhood until a better moment, or improve her existing kids’ chances by not enlarging her brood, or end a pregnancy that was doomed to end in tragedy and pain, there’s also a man out there who is not a father today — or is a better father to the kids he has — because a woman he was involved with had the means to make this decision.
Forty years of feminism notwithstanding, the reality in American politics and culture is that our national discussion around this issue won’t materially change until men understand just how invested they are in this issue — and then stand up with us to insist that our reproductive rights be protected and preserved.
Condoms: The science
The Vatican has published a document which says condoms have holes in them, allowing HIV - the virus that causes AIDS - to pass through.
The document, called Family Values versus Safe Sex, is a detailed and passionately argued defence of the Church’s position on condoms.
Its author, Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, serves as the President of the Pontifical Council for the Family and is known for his hard line stance against contraception.
It goes so far as to suggest that condoms may even be one of the main reasons for the spread of HIV/AIDS.
The document claims that so-called safe sex using condoms is like playing “Russian Roulette.”
“Leading people to think they are fully protected…” the document says, “is to lead many to their death.”
Vatican opposition to birth control is a time-hallowed moral teaching, but in this document the Cardinal has called science to its aid. His document has 87 footnotes.
Panorama has investigated the topic to find the truth.
