In this thread, the hateful bigots on AMG line up to spout off about gay people getting those special rights we were all warned about.

You see, Portland City Hall will be opening at midnight of the first day same-sex marriage will be legal, for three whole hours. This will let people get married right away, rather than having to wait through the weekend.

In AMG-land, this is a “special right.”

Yes, having to wait decades for the privilege of getting your ass out of bed at midnight is such a special, special right.

The arguments against this are absurdly petty, inane, and stupid.

Says Reaganite:

If my town’s office has special hours for these special, newly entitled people, I will be in line. I will be there to get a new transfer station permit. And if I don’t get it, there will be all kinds of hell to pay.

Somehow, I don’t expect anyone around Mr. Reaganite fears whether or not he intends to have “hell to pay.” It is hard to fear payment of hellishness from someone you think would have a truck scrotum on his vehicle if only he could understand the instructions on how to attach them.

Besides, Portland would marry straight couples if they showed up and paid, but they might not do any other permit work. Why is a “transfer permit” the measure of “equal” rather than just the possibility of marrying all types who walk in the door?

Melvin Udall thinks that same-sex marriage only won because Mainers didn’t realize that the phrase “same-sex couples” also means… EVIL HOMOSEXUALS!

By the way, I believe the victory won is that ‘same sex couples’ could get married. Is that the same as homosexuals?

I wonder what would have happened if the ballot issue had said homosexuals.

And Bruce Libby is, well, just dumb.

So, I have a message for the people of As Maine Goes. You are really getting ridiculous. I mean, you are getting so ridiculous that you are making last week’s ridiculous feel inferior and have a mid-life crisis. I mean, last week’s ridiculous is buying a convertible right now wondering, how do I get my mojo back? Because this weeks craziness is some of the worst I’ve ever seen.

Portland is opening for some extra hours to marry people. Marriage is the building block of our civilization, right? So shouldn’t you be happy?

Apollo, Bob Emrich, Reaganite, Bruce Libby, et al. are seen by many people as what they are: hateful persons who prefer discrimination to equality. Keep it up!

Marrying gays at midnight would only be a special right if they had been allowed to get married during regular office hours the day before, and the day before that, and the day before that. They couldn’t.

Suck it up and move on. You have lost this war.

    “Now, please don’t ask why;
    no one quite knows the reason.
    It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
    Or it could be that his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
    But I think that the most likely reason of all…
    may have been that his heart was two sizes too small.”

    Of all the crazy shit and predictions Apollo says “we’re” going to throw out gay marriage next year.

    I sincerely hope they go for it.

  3. jgiven says:

    Someone else (Apollo?) posted links about how the Supreme Court will overturn gay marriage. I guess many don’t understand that the Supreme Court possibly deciding that there is no federal right to same sex marriage will have no effect on Maine’s new law.

    I’d love to respond to some of these goofballs, but I can’t seem to get past the Naran blockade.

  5. Average Joe says:

    Jill, just holler your frustrations down the nearest well. It will be every bit as effective. You can’t convince troglodytes.

  6. Charlotte says:

    Special rights? I love it…most of these guys are married…and have been enjoying these rights for years. Most that post on the AMG gay threads just don’t like gays and lesbians. They wish the gay population would just go away…or worse.

  7. PB says:

    The Boy Scout thread is particularly vial in filled with hatred even for AMG standards. It truly scares me that these people walk amongst us

  8. chris coose says:

    The immigrant thread is a sister to the Boy Scout thread. AMG has gone biblical.

    Had a feeling once the election set in they’d go further fundie. I quit before I got fired.

  9. Jill Trottier says:

    One genius at AMG is under the impression that people who are homosexual are somehow unable to reproduce. A lesson in anatomy and physiology is in order.

    BobS: “Homosexuals cannot reproduce so they need to recruit. What better venue than young impressionable scouts? ;-)”

  10. chris coose says:

    “Every homosexual is a pedophile but not every pedophile is a homosexual. The menu may get a lot bigger. If even one child is turned into a homosexual is it worth the risk??” Joe Redneck

    Oh my. Joe is correct. AMG’s menu shall continue to get bigger and uglier as the less dangerous posters split that sewer.
    Jesus! that’s ugly.
