    He says; " In the mean time.....since when are we the arbiter of other peoples faith? (we don't) .......can you honestly say that you know how much a person is allowed to have?? (as much as she wants) ..if i'm not mistaken, it's in the constitution (duh).....something about religious freedom or something (duh)......selective shaming and bullying corrupts a democracy (who's doing the bullying? SHE has decided to bully all Gays in her area, denying them their rights!_ ....freedom of press, speech and religion give it strength. Not to mention reason and the god given compassion we as humans have a right and responsibility to practice. Once again, the gay community feels the need to be sore winners. (no, not sore at all, it's simple justice at the most basic.) Is it so difficult to allow this women her religion? (she CAN have her religion, as I can have mine) ...or must we destroy her in order for here to betray her faith. (she is destroying herself, a self made martyr.....trying to CONNECT Church and State!) No matter how we judge its truth. The rights we have all fought for, mean nothing, if we deny her hers."

    Does he understand the goal here is to make religious christian sharia THE law?

    For some reason I don't think he'll be invited to their next family reunion.

    If you read his actual post I think maybe he was trying to be sarcastic.
    This was from a long, meandering Facebook rant.
    Whenever I read these outrageous things people post on social media, I always wonder if they did it late at night when they were drunk. icon_lol.gif

    I'm sure he knows that she is a publicly elected official who not only refused to uphold US law but also ordered other clerk to not issue marriage certificates to gays irrespective of their religion or views on the matter.
    Or at least he knows it now.

    So just another gay guy with internalized homophobia who by chance was born into the same family as Madonna.

    Who the Hell cares about Madonna's brother and why is anyone giving him a soapbox to stand on?

    Madonna is a popular entertainer, sometimes attacked by the Christian Right, and who appeals to a nightclubby demographic that's likely to not be especially Fundamentalist in its beliefs. Therefore I would suspect her brother's comments not only don't represent her, but are not particularly welcome by her camp.

    At the same time, PR and image management are strange animals, often directed by even stranger people. Leaving open the slight possibility that Brother was given the go-ahead on this. But I strongly doubt it. A loose cannon in the family of a famous person is rarely a pretty thing.

    So I guess AMISH DMV employees can just stay at home and collect cheques then? Sounds pretty sweet.


    The first NRA member denied a permit by a QUAKER is not going to be very happy.

    And of course a hardcore MORMON fringe worker, might have fun with denying licences for a mere party of TWO.

    Let the religious BS party begin!

    It really comes off as ignorant attention whoring, though I have no doubt it's based on his own religious conviction, which is even worse.icon_confused.gif

    You have to be stretching if you think someone related to an elderly pop princess has important opinions.

    robbaker saidshe has the right to refuse . besides most gays will be divorcing each other at a higher rate . since most are always hooking up with them boys. can't keep your dicks in your pantsicon_mad.gif

    Seems like you despise gays as much as the Christian fundamentalists do. Have you considered some reparative therapy for yourself? Given your attitude you should be "cured" in about 1 session.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidWait, I don't get this. He's gay and he supports jailed Kim Davis?

    Ask robbaker above you. He seems to be in the same boat as Madonna's brother.

    I put robbaker on ignore awhile ago. Those "my marked up ass in your face" pics are unsettling and he's always making some obscene comment not worth reading. So I won't be asking him anything anytime soon.

    One more to my ignore list. He just posted some foaming-at-the-mouth screed fuck Obama/fuck liberals/fuck democrats on a thread about the Republican adultery couple in Michigan.
