The plaintiffs also include an evangelical minister and a woman who says she got into a custody battle with her husband after he left her for a transgender woman.

Is it these same assholes or a different bunch of assholes?


#4

If men can marry men, why can’t he marry a computer?

Because a computer isn’t a person.


#5

Same type of asshole.


#6

Yup, sho’ you right; that one was Louisiana, this one is in Texas.


#7

Is it the Drag Queens or the reading they don’t like? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Pretty sure you wanted to reply to the OP, rather than me. :slight_smile:

The lawsuit says the storytelling sessions advertised as appropriate for patrons of all ages at the Freed-Montrose Neighborhood branch should not be funded with taxpayer dollars since the library would not host a “man-woman marriage storytelling hour.”

But wait - using their logic, any time the library hosted a story time read by a heterosexual person, it would be a “man-woman marriage storytelling hour.” So…

Jesus’s mum wasn’t married…


#13

Amazing how the people who are most likely to shout “Liberal Snowflake” are so easily offended.


#14

They could feature the ‘man-woman marriage storytelling hour’ as part of ‘white history month’!


#15

OMG, that ‘stache is fuckin’ hypnotic! If that dude was hunting me he could just walk up to me waving his mustache, and pith me on the spot.


#16

It is pretty damn magnificent…


#17

But it is made by a corporation, which is a person… can he marry a corporation? But which one to choose? They’re all so damned sexy.

If only she had been a drag queen. That would have been the greatest story ever told.


#18

Yeah, doesn’t it say that in a particular book those folk seem to quite like rea - ooooooh wait.

Probably shouldn’t also mention that Jesus was Jewish.

Back up a second. Aren’t some “drag queens” hetero cross-dressers? So, really, they’re demanding the State mandate the wearing of gendered clothing. That’s not really surprising, but nothing infuriates conservatives like logical clarity.

EDIT: I just realized their anti-gay agenda would require police to separate the homos from the wholesome cross-dressers. Is there a 10-point gay questionnaire they can use? I’m almost sure “gaydar” is a metaphor, right? They don’t sell actual gaydar units at the Zondervan bookstore?

He’s the actor who played the cowpoke/paladin* in The Big Lebowski, right?

* For whatever reason, that character always strikes me as “paladin”. Color me D&D geeky.
