Fa-a-abulous Totalitarianism: Queer As Volk Update 2.0


CaNN Commentary

Paging all freedom-loving Anglican same-sex activists everywhere. These May 2007 headlines are reversed, for your consideration:

~ Priest issues death threats to Gay rights activists, sends bullets in the mail

~ Students at Anti-Gay High School Swarm Parents Protesting In Favour Of Homosexuality

~ A hate crime from the pulpit? Same-Sex leaders say bill may punish speech in favor of homosexuality

~ Heterosexual activist says, ‘We will BURY you’ — Threats made against Gay workers supporting homosexual agenda

~ Fake Anti-“Straight” “Hate Crimes” Keep Piling Up

Any questions?

Oh, and dear activists: please send us heads-ups on all your protest-marches, letter-writing campaigns, new websites, books, hunger-strikes, conferences, online petitions, interviews, press releases, and your general outrage over these kinds of violent and hateful abuses, done precisely for the sake and in the name of your movement.

Waiting to hear from you,
