Remind Me To Go Sneeze On Them

You can't make this stuff up, though I really wish this was all just made-up. It would make it a lot easier to stomach.

For those who don't know, Arizona will be voting on Proposition 102 this November. If approved by Arizona voters, it will amend the Arizona Constitution by adding the following article related to marriage: "Marriage - Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state."

Prop. 102 is completely unnecessary though as same sex marriage is already illegal in Arizona. Not only that, but a similar proposition was already defeated in 2006. How many times are they going to have us vote on this?

My partner pointed me to the following. It is taken verbatim from the Yes on Prop 102 website:

YOUR MARRIAGE MAY ALREADY BE IN TROUBLE

In 2006 Arizona voters decided NO on a constitutional amendment which would have defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. In fact, Prop 107 was just like our current Prop 102. But ever since that proposition failed to pass, we are beginning to understand the truly disasterous [SIC] consequences of its failure.

It is estimated that, since 2006, approximately 20,000 heterosexual marriages have failed in Arizona due to inadequate protections from the possibility of activist judges ruling in favor of some future homosexual plaintiffs. State authorities fear that we may be on a slippery slope of failed heterosexual marriages and broken families if we don't take immediate action to pass Prop 102.

THE THREAT FROM CALIFORNIA

Additionally, the legality of gay marriage in California sent out powerful shockwaves of destructive gay energy throughout the country. Without an amendment to our constitution specifically barring homosexuals from obtaining marriage rights, this destructive force will continue to turn thousands of upright, decent straight couples into deranged, out-of-control gay perverts.

STOP THE SPREAD

New research from the Family Focus Forum (FFF) indicates that homosexuality may in fact be a communicable disease. In fact, many previously heterosexual men are now leaving their families for no apparent reason in order to persue [SIC] careers in fashion design and hair styling. One has only to tune in to Bravo to see how such shows as Shear Genius or Project Runway are transforming popular culture toward the sin of homosexuality.

Now this should give you an idea of some of the sheer lunacy we're up against.

"Your marriage may already be in trouble!"

Really? And you didn't realize that until just now? Damn those crafty homosexuals!

"...approximately 20,000 heterosexual marriages have failed in Arizona due to inadequate protections from the possibility of activist judges ruling in favor of some future homosexual plaintiffs"

Really? You need a judge to protect your marriage? The vows you made to your spouse in front of friends, family, and God aren't enough? If you are really that vulnerable to the influence of homosexuality, maybe this amendment isn't going to be enough. And how did you come up with that figure anyway? I'd really like to see the scientific study that determined that. Or did God just give you the statistics?

"...the legality of gay marriage in California sent out powerful shockwaves of destructive gay energy throughout the country"

Really? Is that a clean, renewable energy source? If so I say we harness it and end our dependence on foreign oil.

"New research from the Family Focus Forum (FFF) indicates that homosexuality may in fact be a communicable disease"

Really? Oh I am so calling in gay to work tomorrow!

Is transexuality also an illness? (DSM-IV) I guess I'm inflicted with two diseases. If homosexality is communicable, then sadly, I haven't had a chance to infect another woman for a long time.

"Thus, with a kiss, I die."

Are you sure this site isn't a parody? It lists the Westboro Baptist Church as one of its sponsors, with an ad that has no link. It also states that the Arizona minutemen are forming a division to "help the state enforce Proposition 102."

I call Poe's Law.

I am hoping that the site might in fact be a parody, but I'm not so sure. It's been debated back and forth as to its legitimacy, but I have yet to see hard evidence one way or another.

If it is a parody, no one seems to know who is responsible. Also, whoever created the site risks having it taken very seriously by those against gay marriage. While *we* may find it funny, I know of people who share the same opinions of the site, parody or not.

One argument against it being a parody is in fact the inclusion of the Westboro Baptist Church. They have been known to campaign for anti-gay marriage ballot issues all around the country. They have already donated a great deal of money to Prop. 102 here in Arizona. If you look at some of WBC's real sites, the rhetoric and the arguments are the same.

Again, I hope it is a parody. If anyone can provide more details as to the site's origination, please share it here.

This is certainly a parody. Read the news items, hilarious! The one about What Makes Your Marriage So Special? almost made me choke on my latte. Some devious homo out there is making a mockery of the right, justly so.

Scott,

I am a little bit late, but welcome to the Bilerico family!

Let's just face it. These people are about as sane as Sarah Palin and you know what that means. They are nuts.

Their obsession with homosexuality is incomprehensible. I don't even think about The Gays as much as they do and I spent quite a bit of my career as a professional homosexual.

Monica, girl, you just need to learn to work it right!

When ever someone asks what I do for a living, I always say I'm a professional queer mouthpiece. LOL

Which reminds me, I'd call in gay to work, but I work from home and I'm my own boss. I'm going to have to rethink my (non-existent) health plan and include gay days.

Bil,
You cannot call out work for being gay, because your work requires you to BE gay. That's why you hired yourself in the first place.

*shrugs*

I was the most competent person for the job, I thought.

The problem is, it's becoming impossible to distinguish between reality and satire!!
