Yes, I used the word “fag”deliberately because, ladies and gentlemen, that is what they think of us and that is the word that they would like to use. Asserting that we are all a bunch of pedophiles is not polite conversation.

I have no fewer than 20 e-mails this week regarding the Boy Scouts of America. From Eagle Forum, Family Research Council, Liberty Counsel, ADF, Florida Family Association, and so on, and so on. Every one of these implies that gay men are inherently child molesters. Most of these miscreants have sent multiple emails; each with more telephone numbers to call including the companies that board members are employed by. Oh, and they include sample scripts to use. All these holier-than-thou, self-righteous schmucks harassing their way to a decision that pleases them. After bitching, they end each script with “God bless” as if that makes all the vile rhetoric OK.

Shame on them and shame on the Boy Scouts of America if they are persuaded by such nonsense.

Then there are the amicus briefs in US v Windsor and Holingsworth v Perry (DOMA and Prop 8 respectively). One is nuttier than the next. Some say that we already have the right to marry. Some claim that gay is behavior in contrast to identity. Some military chaplains group seems to think that they are re-litigating don’t-ask-don’t-tell. At least they only filed a brief in Windsor. Another, from Westboro Baptist Church (the inbred Phelps imbeciles) claims that the world will come to an end if we can marry. Seriously.

We fucking get it dear Christianists!

Well, we are not going away so get used to us. We are in the US military. We are raising wonderful, successful children and we are getting married. National marriage equality is inevitable. One day, you won’t be able to fire us, or not hire us, just because we are gay or transgender. And if you think Obama was hard to take, oh     just you wait for Hillary!
