As House vote on "1913 Law" nears, Boston media keeping up the propaganda push
Two more reasons to avoid the Boston media as much as possible
July 22, 2008
Over the last few days, as the House prepares to vote on the "1913 Law" being pushed hard by the homosexual lobby, the media, and the Boston Globe in particular, has picked up the propaganda pace considerably. Whatever the gay lobby is paying their PR people, their money's certainly well spent. As we've learned over the years, nothing in the media happens accidentally. Here are just a few samples:
Last Thursday: Vicious ant-family rant.
Ever wonder how the mainstream media REALLY feels about you? Boston Globe "metro" columnist Kevin Cullen didn't pull punches. And he makes a special effort to unfairly demonize Mass. Family Institute's Kris Mineau. In case the House members forget how to vote, he's reminding them.
Tilting at windmills

You would think that with the Senate's vote to allow same-sex couples from out of state to get married and with the House poised to do the same, the self-righteous family values crowd would just fold up tent and move their circus elsewhere.
Like, oh, I don't know, maybe Kansas?
Fat chance. Kris Mineau, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, says the campaign to repeal gay marriage is "going to be here until the cows go home."
I have a question: Have you ever tried to move a cow? I did, 30 years ago, in a field in Greenfield with a bunch of other kids from UMass, and I'm telling you, that cow wouldn't budge . . .
A lot of people oppose gay marriage on religious grounds, and they are perfectly entitled to. But, as I recall, the Puritans who first settled Massachusetts were followed by generations who gradually stopped believing that God sat around thinking of ways to smite sinners. And, then, of course, there are many people who don't believe religion should be used to dictate the laws of a democratic republic . . .
And if you think that once a civil right is recognized by the state's highest court you can somehow change it back to the way it was, or that you can get a popular referendum so a majority can strip a civil right from a minority, I own a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in.
Some who oppose gay marriage are deeply principled. Others are bigots. But they share a common cause. Their cause in Massachusetts is dead.

Monday morning: front-page spread normalizing "gay" couples
The thousands of Globe readers opened up their Monday morning (July 21) paper to see a big color picture at the top of page 1 of two homosexual lovers outfitting their one-bedroom condo. The article is written in a dry, matter-of-fact way, with normal couples also described. The message is subtle but very bold: Homosexuality is no different, and you'd better get used to it. (And if you're a state rep, don't even think about suggesting otherwise.)
Quite masterfully written, actually:
