    good...I am glad that artists are not letting this group use their work for the hate the spew. I still do not understand why this organization exists...I equally do not understand why anyone would listen to that fat cow Maggie Gallagher...who was a single mother BTW

    Awesome! icon_biggrin.gif
    I long for the day when hate groups are illegal, and jailed for their bigotry.

    A similar request by Bruce Springsteen isn't exactly working out.

    I hope NOM leaves on a jet plane and never comes back again. Man, if I had a hammer.

    Mary Travers was an amazing person from anything I had read. Giving concerts being wheeled on stage and on oxygen- tough old bird. Also, very open and accepting- I'm certain she would not have been happy for a group such as this to throw her life work promoting peace and understanding behind hatred and bigotry. I'm happy that artists have had these types of cease and desist orders issued. It may not prevent their music from being used but it does show people that they condemn the actions of NOM. I really don't care for celebrity culture- but if there are even a few people who now question their actions and beliefs because they see a group as influential to their generation and beliefs as PP&M were it makes me smile.

    Good- perhaps we can appoint inquisitor to oversee this action. He could record confessions and jail people for their beliefs. It worked out so well in the past. Or with new technology and scanning devices we could detect children likely to grow up with bigoted views and send them to residential schools and set them straight. That type of idea (though done with cranial measuring devices) worked out well in the '30's. They assigned pink triangles- we could have blue octagons sewn to their lapels.icon_rolleyes.gif
