Freepers React to Gay Marriage in Vermont (Hint: They’re Extra Patriotic!)

Joe.My.God did my homework for me.  He’s cherry-picked a long list of comments left on Free Republic who’s spun a thread about the news that the Vermont legislature overwhelmingly over-rode the (Republican) governor’s veto on gay marriage.

Here’s what these Patriotic Americans had to say:

“I await the volcanoes, the tsunamis, the hurricanes and hopefully, the destruction of Vt and its pacifist secular socialism by the Lord. I actually do want it to happen with good Americans being protected as we see in the OT, when God protects believers that do good and trust the Lord. Since VT doesn’t seem to believe in the Biblical God or His standards, perhaps a nice lesson in humility would be a nice taste of God’s wrath.”

You mean – like Lot and his wife who had to leave Sodom and Gomorrah? Like, when God bombed those Biblical “Twin Cities” with fire and brimstone? Oh wait, mass destruction of the country only happens in that Bible Belt. Hurricane Katrina, Rita, Hurricane Hugo, and Alberto – God only hates the Bible Belt states and this douche is crossing his fingers hoping it’ll happen in Vermont some time.

“Homosexuals like to target beautiful areas and states to infect them with their agenda to force the abhorrent lifestyle upon the unsuspecting, though often liberal-tending, population. It is going on all over the country.”

Yes…We’re looking for the “extra-pretty” areas of the country first. You’ve discovered our super-duper secret plan – because the Grand Tetons and Yosemite just isn’t gay enough!

“Now it is time for the animal-lovers to file a lawsuit to get recognition of marriage between humans and animals. Equal protection and all…”

Woah, buddy! If you’re going to start humping your own dog’s leg – we’re just not interested! m’Kay?!

“And I guarantee that kids in Jr High and younger who have this stuff pushed at them daily….as “love” and marriage, HAVE NOT A CLUE, what it takes to commit a homosexual act. If they are told the truth, they will naturally be repelled”

Bitter!! Party of one! Bitter!?!  Bitter Party of one?!

“I really would love to see millions of conservatives not republicans move out of their liberal states think about it they will lose money red state gets <strike>mroe</strike> more money we have the second amendment <strike>recognised</strike> recognized to people who go to church not laughed at we would increase the electoral college count too”

I would love to see millions of Republicans and conservatives move out of Minnesota too. I mean; “Honestly…We just can’t get rid of these Republicans fast enough!!”  Face it, there’s just not enough elderly conservative old Republicans  who’ve moved to Florida yet!  (Oh wait…Florida’s electoral votes went to Obama, too.  Nevermind!)

“they account of 5% of the population yet there is so much fact and numbers about them being sick , dying,disease, serial killers, child molesters etc we have to counter the Hollywood for two girls being together is sexy, it is not the lesbians are not Hollywood they are manly looking wearing strap ons. men who are doing it are poking in a hole where our waste comes out and then they suck it. disgusting and not cool. yes it is sick and visual but I found it is the only way for us normal people to understand how sick these people are”

Hrmmm… It’s the “gays” that are child molesters?! Really? Is that true?! How is it that every time a child molester is arrested, the guy isn’t wearing a feathered boa? I’ve never seen a child-molester wearing drag. I’ve seen plenty of wives who’s husband has been just arrested for child molestation  crying into their kitchen towels sobbing: “I just never knew!” But never seen a child-molester wearing leather suspenders, jackboots, a gay pride pin on his black t-shirt and a pair of handcuffs getting stuffed into the back-seat of a squad car.

American FlagIt just makes you take a deep breath of fresh air and swell up with pride, doesn’t it?

Now, let’s not let any of these extra-patriotic dumb-bells know that just yesterday, Washington DC voted unanimously to recognized same-sex marriage from any state in the union who allows it.  Currently, that list of states seems to grow.  From the Burlington (Vermont) Free Press:
Vermont, Massachusetts, and Iowa all allow same-sex marriage, while New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island all recognize civil unions and Washington, Oregon, California, Hawai’i and Maine recognize “domestic partnerships”.  It’s funny, don’t you think?   The Associated Press, who made this map – would use orange, red and pink to show which states recognize their gay citizens’ relationships.

What does Jackie and Dunlap think about this topic?

Leave it to those two to speak truth to power…Frank Sinatra: Love and Marriage

Does anybody remember when Jerry Falwell compared gay marriage to slavery? How many years did that Moral “Majority” fat-cat run around screaming about God’s wrath towards homosexuality and the dangers of ruining the “holy sanctity of (heterosexual) marriage“?  Massachusetts has been allowing gay marriage for – six years now?  Is there still a danger of losing that “holy sanctity” in that state?   I’m not seeing “God’s Wrath” there!

Isn’t the true danger all about these religious bigots being pushed back into obscurity?

Arrest Warrants Issued for Cheney and Bush in Maple Syrup!

Vermont - LargeThe towns of Brattleboro and Marlboro have in instructed their police departments to arrest Vice President Dick Cheney and Commander in Thief, George W. Bush. Without elaborating on any specifics, the ballot’s measure asked voters to approve the indictment based on “Crimes against the Constitution.”

State lawmakers have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and impeach Bush and Cheney, and several towns have also passed resolutions of impeachment. None of them have caught on in Washington.

Pretty dumb, don’t you think? Especially when you head on to the next paragraph:

Bush has never visited the state as president, though he has spent vacations at his family compound in nearby Maine.

houseflyFrom USA Today:

In Brattleboro, the vote was 2,012 for and 1,795 against. In Marlboro, it was 43 to 25, with three abstentions.

“I hope the one thing that people take from this is ‘Hey, it can be done,”‘ said Kurt Daims, 54, who organized the petition drive that led to the Brattleboro vote.

He said he hopes Bush and Cheney are never arrested here; he wants them impeached before that could happen.

mosquitoOrganizers of the campaign to have these two thugs arrested complained because the ballot included their measure on the back of the form. They wanted the measure front and center on the front cover!

Organizers of the indictment campaign were frustrated that the printed ballot ended up relegating the Bush-Cheney indictment article to the back side, which they said would cause some people to miss it.

The 8-by-14-inch yellow cardboard ballot listed the offices and candidates in the local election on one side, and at the bottom in block letters “Turn Ballot Over and Continue Voting.”

The article read: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictments for consideration by other authorities and shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and prosecute or extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them?”

Kurt DaimsIn spite of all the hub-bub going on – people forgot to turn the ballot over anyway. (Which is astounding, if you ask me.) Said:

Barbara Southworth, a 66-year-old nurse, said she would’ve voted against it.

“I forgot to vote because it was on the flip side,” she said.

Check out the last sentence on Deutsche Welle on the exact same story:

Voters in two towns in the US state of Vermont have approved a measure that would instruct police to arrest President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for “crimes against the Constitution.” The nonbinding, symbolic measure, passed in Brattleboro and Marlboro instructs local police to extradite Bush and Cheney to other authorities that may prosecute them. Lawmakers in Vermont, a state known for its liberal politics, have passed nonbinding resolutions to end the war in Iraq and to impeach Bush and Cheney. None of them have caught on in Washington.

That’s pretty damned funny.

Here’s a really cool video I found on YouTube on the topic (Especially the last two older gentleman):
