Sexual assault as a protest? That'll go over delightfully, I'm sure.
I wish people would get over themselves. On either "side" of this ridiculous controversy. The founder of CFA has just as much of a right to express himself as gay people do, I have no idea why everyone is so worked up over this BS when we have real problems to fix. Why is nobody mass-protesting in DC to get this budget crap sorted out, for example? We're more worried about what some guy who owns a chicken restaurant thinks than we are about the corruption rife in our government.
I haven't enough palms or faces to adequately express myself.
For some people, being able to hold the same civil protections as everyone else is a big deal. For them, it's a deeply personal, very real problem to fix. Also, as someone posted above, it's not about what he said, but that they've donated millions to groups that actively try to get laws passed making homosexuality a criminal offense, get a Marriage Amendment to the Constitution, and attempt to spread ideas like "pray the gay away".
Tho I don't really agree with this particular idea. Right-wingers who believe that gays are icky aren't going to have their minds changed by having two guys making out right in front of them (or their over-protected kids). Hell, I'm not even pesonally big on seeing hetero PDA (unless I'm one of the ones doing it).
Personally, I'd rather just see more support for events like this: https://www.facebook...13515905352295/
than some form of protest.
Also, I'll just leave these two images here:
