John Goldwater, CEO of Archie Comics responds to the hackling of the few Moms of 1 Million Moms and American Family Association (AFA) over the latest edition of Archie where Kevin Keller is getting married to his African-American male partner.
“We stand by Life with Archie #16. As I’ve said before, Riverdale is a safe, welcoming place that does not judge anyone. It’s an idealized version of America that will hopefully become reality someday. We’re sorry the American Family Association/One Million Moms feels so negatively about our product, but they have every right to their opinion, just like we have the right to stand by ours. Kevin Keller will forever be a part of Riverdale, and he will live a happy, long life free of prejudice, hate and narrow-minded people.”
Take that, you bunch of douche-bags!!!
After a failed attempt to pressurize JC Penney to fire Ellen Degeneres as their spoke person for being openly gay, American Family Association AFA and 1 Million Moms got themselves a new target…Archies Comics, asking Toys R Us to remove them from their shelves.
The latest issue includes a gay Kevin Keller, who first debuted 2 years back and sports a cover picture of him getting married to his male lover caught the attention of a thousand desperate housewives who call them 1 Million Moms.
Their letter to the retail chain Toys R Us urging them to remove the copies ends with ” Please remove all the same-sex “Just Married – Archie” comic books immediately from your shelves. My decision to shop in your stores depends on it.”
If only these retarded moms got a little bit of education and intellect, they would have realized what they just did. They just made the sale of this edition of Archie comic soar, thanks to the free publicity. The same way JC Penney got millions when these Moms chose to attack them.
Although they don’t seem to have learnt any lesson, what lesson have we learnt? If you want publicity, and do extensive marketing for your product or company without spending a dime, just grab these stupid housewives’ attention. They will do it for you and free of cost. You can sit back and enjoy the mulah! And they might bring you freshly baked cup-cakes too…
Tuesday February 28: The Indian Government declared that it will not challenge the 2009 ruling by Delhi High court decriminalizing homosexuality.
This was informed to the Supreme Court by government lawyers, which is now hearing a case filed against that ruling by religious leaders challenging it.
Homosexuality had been illegal in India since the 1860s, when a British colonial law classified it as “against the order of nature.”
The support of the Indian government for the ruling might tip the scale in favour of the LGBTQ of the supreme court ruling.
We can only hope and keeps our fingers crossed.
Each commercial of JC Penny and Ellen, I see as a tight slap in the faces of 1 Million Moms. Thats a lot of slaps……
The DOJ under Obama Administration announced on the 17th of February that it will not defend laws that would prevent married same=sex couples from getting military benefits.
Attorney General Eric Holder mentioned in a letter to the Congress, “the legislative record of these provisions contains no rationale for providing veterans’ benefits to opposite-sex couples of veterans but not to legally married same-sex spouses of veterans … Neither the Department of Defense nor the Department of Veterans Affairs identified any justifications for that distinction that would warrant treating these provisions differently from Section 3 of DOMA.”
The Defence of Married Act prevents the federal government from recognising same-sex relationships even if the couple is legally married in their state.
The lawsuit was filed last October on behalf of Maj. Shannon McLaughlin of Massachusetts which talks about the benefits that all heterosexual couples enjoy, were denied to McLaughlin and her partner Casey such as, medical and dental benefits, basic housing allowances, travel and transportation allowances, family separation benefits, military ID cards, visitation rights in military hospitals, survivor benefit plans, and the right to be buried together in military cemeteries.
The Department of Justice had already announced on February 23, 2011 that it would not defend the Constitutionality of DOMA.
Instead of rewriting the whole interview, I will just put the link here.
Savage talks about a lot of things from his new show on MTV called Savage U, Rick Santorum, to being glitter bombed by trans group.
When I saw Maggie Gallaghar, the first thing it reminded me was of a toad. Then when I heard her speak, it reminded me of a fable about a toad who lived in the bottom of a well for all its life and hence came to think that the well was the entire world. It didn’t and couldn’t comprehend a world beyond the high walls of it.
Like Brian Brown, who was called upon on FOX News ( watch it here) and bombarded with questions about his organization’s stance on same-sex marriage and made a fool of, Maggie went through a similar process but this time on MSNBC in “Up With Chris Hayes“. NOM’s entire foundation is built on lies and Maggie being the co-founder of National Organization for Marriage, its little surprising that all her arguments were false.
From denying advocating gay reparative therapy to trying to establish homosexuality as a pathological disfunction, her lies spread in every word that came out of her mouth.
But as I mentioned the similarity between her and that toad in the well, which goes beyond the physical likeness, is amazing. Add stupidity to that. By coming to these maga chanels time after time and making a fool of themselves, they are actually making it easy for the gay rights activists job to expose them, quite easy. Nothing can show their baseless, bigoted, hateful actions to the mass better than these talk shows which are watched by millions.
If they were smart enough, they would refuse to appear on tv. But their thirst for publicity is so great, they come again and again on national television and get ripped by the hosts. And as a result, what would have taken a lot of energy, hard work precious time and not to mention, man power (to make the mass see through the false vail of NOM) is made easy. And what can be better than when its done by themselves.
I hope they keep on coming and make an ass of themselves, in her case a toad of herself and we will be just fine.
