Gotcha! GetEqual ambushes Maggie Gallagher, gives her Bigotry Award
The direct action, gay activist group GetEqual ambushed anti-gay Maggie Gallagher today at a Congressional hearing on Defending Marriage.

Gallagher is the board chairman of the National Organization for Marriage and was testifying in the hearings.

GetEqual gave Gallagher the First Annual Anita Bryant Award for Unbridled and Unparalleled Bigotry.

A statement notes: Competition for the prize was fierce, with Ms. Gallagher out-bigoting such notable figures as Senator John McCain, Michelle Bachmann, Pastor Rick Warren, and Sarah Palin.

2. It creeps me out that
Maggie Gallagher thinks she has the right to speak for me and my marriage. I do not need her help. I find her help offensive, mean spirited and reactionary.

she deserves all the ridicule she gets and more.

3. Poor misunderstood Maggie
She just wants everybody else out there to have a miserable Catholic heterosexual marriage just like hers.

I once asked my agnostic mother why she'd shoved me into Catholic school since it had been such a poor fit. Her reply was "I just wanted you to have all the disadvantages I grew up with."

That's Maggie.

7. I can picture how faux news would cover it:
'Gay Mafia Intimidates REAL American'

'Anita Bryant Attacked by Terrorist Pie'

Of course gay marriage and happy couples cause teen suicide, not hopelessness due to all the hate in the world.
