Anti-LGBT bigot attacks Roy Cooper

Self-righteous indignation is so 1950's:

Last month, North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper announced that he would no longer defend the state’s marriage equality ban because "there are really no arguments left to be made." This did not sit well with Mark Creech, executive director of the North Carolina Action League. In a Christian Post column yesterday, Creech attacked Cooper for “wimpishly” capitulating to “tyranny” and yielding to the “despotism” of “judicial totalitarians.”

"By refusing to resist with every legal means possible, Cooper capitulates to a form of tyranny in our day. He abandons his post on the field of battle, throws up the white flag, stands in the very place of the state (a state that voted by 61% for the marriage amendment) and wimpishly replies to the 4th Circuit that North Carolina accepts their judgment and surrenders. Furthermore, he calls on the judges who will preside over the cases currently challenging the state's marriage amendment to stand down and yield to the despotism of two judicial totalitarians."

I've been trying to complete this diary for over an hour, but there's so many aggressive advertisements on this Christian Post page it keeps locking up my computer. There's a Sunday School lesson in there somewhere, possibly something about Mammon (I don't know who that was), but now it's almost time for brunch, so...


In case anybody's wondering,

I realize this article is several weeks old, but it seems to have flown under the radar. In addition to the anti-LGBT element, it also gives us a glimpse into what will likely be a major campaign issue for Roy's Gubernatorial bid a few years from now.

"we….we…like you know"

If we knew, we wouldn't be listening to your tired, closet opinion.

It's hard to fathom

how minds such as Creech's got so twisted.
Listen, Mr. Creep Creech, when judges intervene to prevent tyranny by pointing out that laws violate the Constitution (a document that was developed to prevent tyrrany), it's kind of the opposite of tyranny.

And I'm really tired of the debunked "61% voted for this" crap.

Hatred and bigotry aren't Christian values.

A small portion of the population turned for a republican presidential primary, and that's supposed to somehow represent the will of the state on a poorly worded amendment where every poll revealed there was a lot of confusion about it. We actually have things like the bill of rights to stop tyranny, but that's tyranny of the majority that it's aimed at.

I just want to ask Mr.

I just want to ask Mr. Creech:

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home?

I don't think he gets the big picture.

I'm a moderate Democrat.
