Jennifer Roback Morse hates your planned babies.

Quote

This is the appalling thing right there, I mean right there is the problem, okay? The way almighty God created our bodies, a man and a woman are supposed to come together in an act of love to produce a new human being. This is the way God wants the human species to continue, as a participation in his divine love and in his divine creative power. That is what is imprinted into our bodies, that’s what we’re supposed to do, that’s what we need to do, that’s what we want to do.

And what we’re doing now, Todd, as a result of the sexual revolution and all its fruits, is that we are in full-on retreat from human relationship between a man and a woman in order to create that child. So going online to buy sperm from a stranger is about as far as you can possibly get from the participation in divine love and divine creation. The fact that these two women want to have sex with each other has no bearing whatsoever on whether this should be permitted or not. You know, buying sperm on Craigslist should be abolished. Buying sperm at all should be abolished. And furthermore, these people should be in jail, I’m afraid.

I mean, you know, honestly, I just can’t even imagine where people think this is going to lead. You know, because the child is no longer a gift from God and a fruit of human love participating in God’s love. The child is now a product, manufactured by adults, and therefore the child cannot be fully the equal of its parent. The object cannot be the equal of its producer or its maker, you know. And so the further we go down this path, the further away we are going from the true ideal of equality before God, of equality before one another, of treating one another with dignity. And the child becomes a kind of chattel. So the legal complications and the sort of ick factor of all of this, it’s important to sort all that out and look at it, but let’s not take our eye off that ball, which is that we have defaced the creator’s plan and intention here by this behavior.

Listen, Jennifer Roback Morse of the National Organization for Marriage: There is something you find deeply offensive about couples who plan their babies, rather than just letting the babies happen. This goes beyond hating gays (although that much is obvious) and clearly into the territory of resenting people who have the babies they want rather than the babies that result from torn condoms. You hate women who aren’t dependent on men, you hate families that don’t look like yours, and you’re not too fond of children, either.

NOM are a pack of slimy mofos, but that’s hardly news.

I am still trying to write an impressive amount of text into Fait Accompli, but I’d just like to point your attention to this find by Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters. The hilariously named NOM, which uses “marriage” as a euphemism for homophobia, has chosen a deliberate strategy of divide and conquer. Specifically, they’ve chosen to turn African-Americans against gays.

The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks – two key democratic constituencies. We aim to find, equip, energize and connect African American spokespeople for marriage; to develop a media campaign around their objections to gay marriage as a civil right; and to provoke the gay marriage base into responding by denouncing these spokesmen and women as bigots. No politician wants to take up and push an issue that splits the base of the party.

Their goal is to portray the “gay marriage base” as racists, to frame opposition to marriage equality as a “black issue,” and frighten Democratic politicians away from supporting equality. This will do nothing good for race relations, but as far as NOM is concerned, whatevs. It will also make life increasingly, needlessly difficult for African-American LGBTs, but NOM cares even less for them.

No, it doesn’t end there. I just had to follow the link to the HRC document, which gives us this precious nugget:

“The Latino vote in America is a key swing vote, and will be so even more so in the future, both because of demographic growth and inherent uncertainty: Will the process of assimilation to the dominant Anglo culture lead Hispanics to abandon traditional family values? We must interrupt this process of assimilation by making support for marriage a key badge of Latino identity – a symbol of resistance to inappropriate assimilation.”

“Interrupt this process of assimilation by making support for [institutionalized bigotry] a key badge of Latino identity”?

We wouldn’t want America’s fastest-growing ethnic group to get too comfy with an increasingly non-homophobic dominant culture, would we?

There are times when I am embarrassed to be white. This is one of those times. NOM, you suck. You suck so incredibly hard. You are all a disgusting waste of food, housing and oxygen. Short pier. Long walk. Go. Now.
