Phyllis Schlafly has a message for the LGBT community: Don’t believe for a minute that the Supreme Court’s decision in June on marriage equality, no matter how positive, will diminish the crusade against LGBT equality. Schlafly has a gay son too, btw. John Schlafly was revealed to be gay in the in the early ’90s, but defends his mother and continues to work for her. She explains that her son
“supports me in everything I do”
… including fighting what she views as the dangers of “the gay agenda.”
“The gays have their argument about inevitability. I don’t think that’s so… I’m extremely disappointed that the Republican Party, the conservative movement, even the Democratic Party and the churches, have been saying, ‘Well soon the court will decide, and that will be it.’ Well, a lot of people thought that about Roe v. Wade, and we’ve seen the whole abortion movement turned around in the last ten years.
We should develop all kinds of strategies — legal strategies, legislative strategies and public opinion strategies, in order to reject the rules of, in many cases, a single judge or just a simply majority of judges. I do believe the grass roots can take back the Republican Party… These kingmakers… they’re the people who really want us to be bipartisan and get along with everybody. But that’s not the American way. Americans believe in the adversarial concept.”
Those who like to fight like adversaries, don’t they? Not to be mean, but this hateful old lady will be dead soon enough, however, others will take up her fight… but for what reason except for some vague religious beliefs, I cannot fathom? (via Huffington Post)
