Quote Of The Day – Brian Sims

(Tipped by JMG reader Brandon)

  • Blake Jordan

    I am so disappointed, it was part of what I was looking forward to with a positive Marriage Equality SCOTUS ruling.

  • Reality.Bites

    I always find it funny that these people just think you can up and move to another country, as if the other country has no say in the matter.

    Edit to add: They probably figure if we took Ted Cruz’s parents we’ll take anyone.

    • clay

      I bet you’d want a say in if Brain Sims could move to Canada. };)

      Seriously, these (often) anti-immigrants don’t know how immigration works.

      • Reality.Bites

        Well he’s not my type but he is my boyfriend’s type so he can stay the hell where he is.

        • clay

          As one of his constituents, I agree.

        • Six Pins Delores

          So are you saying you look like Brian Sims? 😕

    • Ellipse Kirk

      What I like is that they don’t apparently know Canada’s had marriage equality for over a decade.

      • TampaDink

        Nope…they don’t get that nor do they grasp that Canada has socialized medicine.

        • Douglas

          and gun control!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • RoFaWh

            What else can you expect from people who are proud of their own ignorance?

          • TampaDink

            Yup….and no more goddamned foreigners too!!!!

    • Queequeg

      Plus Canada has had marriage equality for about a decade. Of course, god smote them long ago.

      • JD

        Well, possibly, I mean we did get Stephen Harper….

    • chasmader

      I know more than one person who was refused entry to Canada over a DUI. I doubt they’d let these haters in. They’ve also done a pretty good job of exporting their trash to us.

  • dean

    You gotta love Brian Sims. My uber-catholic neighbor today got a chuckle when I asked him if he wanted to dump his wife and marry me. He’s more concerned about driving all day in this Maryland monsoon than in protecting “one man and one woman.” I was unable to look at JMG until late last night. How do I access the posts from earlier yesterday?

    • BlueberriesForMe

      I’m not sure what the easiest way to look at yesterday’s posts are. You can click on the tags on some of the newer posts (e.g. “SCOTUS”, and I think you’ll get at least some of them.) I don’t know if they would be in the Internet Wayback Machine Archives yet.

      This is the first post when the decision was released:

      http://joemygod.blogspot.com/2015/06/scotus-rules-for-marriage.html

      • dean

        Thank you. I did manage to download and read the decision. Roberts’ dissent is a hoot. He doesn’t acknowledge at all the laws that completely shut us out with no resort to change them.

        • Robincho

          And Kennedy’s, conversely and with particular attention to its final paragraph,
          will rank as one of the greats of all time.

    • jutta

      Google can be of help. Just google for “marriage” site:joemygod.blogspot.com and then go to “search tools” and chose “last 24 hours”

    • Ted.OR

      Same here. Joe’s posts were so prolific yesterday that the news of Bristol Palin’s new pregnancy had already disappeared from the main page by the time I got here.

  • Robert

    I’ve got the matches, know a few attorneys, and have millage points on Am Airlines…no excuses…

    • RoFaWh

      Just as Bristol Palin should receive in her mail envelope after envelope containing one form or another of contraceptive, so should that grandstanding “pastor” (really a wolf, not a shepherd) receive endless boxes of matches.

      Drawback: I’m pretty sure the USPS forbids sending inflammable articles through the mail.

      • TreGibbs

        Can you believe that hypocritical family? If Palin wasn’t done before, she’s done now.

        • David Walker

          Well, she WAS done before and now she’s been done again. But she believes in abstinence.

          • TreGibbs

            I despise those hypocritical inbreds. If anyone else’s child whose parent was in the political spotlight got knocked up, SP would be all over the entire family, labeling them as “librul jihadists” or some other bullshit.

          • David Walker

            Right. Instead, they start drunken brawls. So much more Murkin.

      • GreatLakeSailor
  • Gustav2

    We are waiting…..

  • Yeah But No

    Liar, liar, preacher’s on fire.

    • geoffalnutt

      All preachers, rabbis, priests, etc. are liars to begin with. It’s those sweet lies that are so seductive. Gee, where’s my money?

    • Blake Jordan

      The problem is that the preacher is not on fire…

      • Yeah But No

        You are right of course, that’s why that preacher is a liar. You know bare false witness and all. Or is it bear?

        • David Walker

          *sigh*

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Damn, I went out and bought Honeymaid graham crackers, Hershey bars and Marshmallows last night. Still no preacher fires.

  • BearEyes

    So many histrionics, doom/gloom, destruction, sky is falling.
    Let the empty words speak for themselves. They had nothing and still do. Let their sheeple finally see that.

    • oikos

      I feel this will be bigger than just our rights. Many of the sheeple will see that absolutely nothing has changed and question a lot of the other nonsense they promote. Hopefully this will accelerate the movement from religious into the non religious column

      • clay

        Well, yeah, but you think.

        • oikos

          I think……… sometimes. 🙂

  • joeyj1220

    I’d be happy to do all three (although already in Canada) if it meant Brian would allow me a favor…

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Yes please!

  • j.martindale

    And the massive civil disobedience? Where are they?

    • BlueberriesForMe

      SO disappointing. It’s as if the world continued turning without them. What a shame.

    • William

      Their Hoverounds are charging.

    • Ted.OR

      “Pastor Bob down to the church ain’t told us what to do yet. I reckon on Sunday he’ll do a whole bunch of preachin’ ’bout jus’ how bad this here stuff all is. Come Monday we’ll be fired up and ready to civil disobediate.”

    • BuffaloDan

      This is insane! I woke up this morning and found that the world is still here. It _is_ raining; is that the angels crying?
      (Though a rainy wedding day _is_ considered to be _good_ luck.)

  • Bernie Keefe

    I wanted to see him scream out, “Balenciaga!!” as he burned at the pillar.

  • oikos
  • pj

    they lied in defense of their positions for years…why are you so surprised that they lied about their endgame as well. thats why it was easy to ignore them because nothing they said could be believed.

  • AtticusP

    Why does Congressman Sims hate Canada? 😉

  • Blake Jordan

    They will have to move to Russia, or another Eastern Europe shit hole… because Africa and Asia will be too “racially diverse” for them…

  • BlueberriesForMe

    Here’s some more Brian Sims for your enjoyment:

    • JesterRedPanda

      For the love of all that is good: Charge your phone!
      😉

      • People4Humanity

        Details, people!

    • David Walker

      And on top of that, he’s a damned good rep, too. There are those who “represent” their constituents, assuming their constituents are the lobbyists, This guy really does care about his district and it feels like all the LGBTs in PA are part of his constituency.

      • clay

        When his predecessor tried to primary him, claiming he was distant and self-interested, he asked the state government to release their constituent services numbers. He was covering nearly three times her requests and hosting nearly four times the number of constituent meetings.

  • Robert W. Pierce

    Yes, Brian. Let’s hold their feet to the fire, all of them.

  • cleos_mom

    Being burned alive is one of the horrible ways to die there is; it’s right up there with seppuku/harakiri. One of the most unforgettable images of the early 1960s were those Buddhist monks in Vietnam who chose to die that way.

    But these people wax distraught about inconveniences, such as retooling forms and who’s going to arrange the flowers. These ‘threats’ are a sick joke.

    • RoFaWh

      They are like children (tiny, tiny children) who have a fit when their ancient, threadbare blankie is thrown away.

      To those horrified by the gay onslaught: do yourself a favor and grow up, eh?

      • Six Pins Delores

        It’s also like watching, when after much admiration of the trophy they produced into the grown up toilet, and you accidently flush it too soon.

  • We’re waiting….

  • I love me some Brian Sims

  • Now there’s a gay that threatens my marriage! 🙂 He’s dreamy.

    • TreGibbs

      LOL ! He wouldn’t threaten my marriage – he would enhance it…

  • Patrick

    At the very least they have to confess that they are LIAR’s

    • TampaDink

      Their hypocrisy is too deep for them to ever do such a thing.

      • Schlukitz

        Definitely.

        They lied about everthing else. Why would we even think of taking them at their word on these idiotic promises?

        • TampaDink

          They are never to believed or trusted.

      • Ted.OR

        “Their hypocrisy is too deep…”

        … and their memory span is too short.

        • TampaDink

          If not short, certainly selective.

          • Ted.OR

            It’s hard work memorizing all the bible verses. So they just memorize the ones about other people’s “sins”, and skip over the ones about their own “sins”.
            (“Sins” is in quotes, as that is a religious construct.)

          • TampaDink

            That does make their burdensome jobs of being professional martyrs easier on them.

  • JustSayin’

    Not only is he sexy, he seems pretty smart, funny, and on point.

    • clay

      He is
      service-minded,
      athletic,
      smart,
      educated,
      out-going,
      courageous,
      friendly, and

      sexy.

      • Six Pins Delores

        YEAH. And I HATE his man! /sarcasm/

    For instance, where is that preacher with the big wooden cross who promised to set himself on fire?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Well, I am looking forward to making s’mores……as for Canada however, this PSA should make it clear what we think…….

    • David Walker

      Luvvit!

    • JulieBL

      Stolen… to post on FB. 😉

    • parachihuahua

      You should consider a wall, or a big fence. I hear they are ever so effective. And, according to Trump, the US should pay for it.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Brilliant!

  • Richard

    Brian Sims is MY Representative and Barack Obama is MY President, life does not get much better than this!

    • PhillyProfessor

      He’s MY representative, too. And you’re right, life doesn’t get much better than this.

  • PhillyProfessor

    Have I mentioned before that Brian Sims represents MY district in Philadelphia? Not that I’m bragging or anything, because that would be small and petty. I’m just casually mentioning the fact in passing. The fact that he’s my representative. And I couldn’t be prouder.

  • grada3784

  • bambinoitaliano

    We do not like to collect trash from another nation even if it’s from our friendly neighbor. As for Brian Sims, he can come and sit by me any day!

  • Canadian Observer

    He has a lovely smile, but we still don’t want a bunch of recently divorced self-immolators crossing the border, especially here in the western part of Canada – it has been very dry and the forest fire hazard is extreme.

  • J̶a̶l̶a̶p̶e̶ñJoe Smithson

    Has this been verified? I don’t see it on his Facebook page or his Twitter feed. Unless he said it at the rally last night, I don’t see any record of it. I would love it, it’s great, but after yesterday’s double rainbow over the white house cluster fuck, I’m vetting before squealing.

    EDIT: Found it on Facebook, Let the sqealing commence!

    • clay

      squeeeeeeeeee!

  • JaniceInToronto

    OMG! There are HUGE hordes of ‘merkins storming the border to Canada at all crossings across the nation. We’re being swamped by all those poor people who vowed they would move here if marriage equality passed.
    Please send help, and lots of nets to round them up with.

    • Steven Leahy

      They really just wanted closeted free health care 🙂

    if i had that man on my arm – it would be heavenly…and i’d be glowing like jeebus!

  • Bj Lincoln

    I was outside when we found out and did not hear any heads explode. I was kind of hoping to hear that. Our street is still intact and the rest of the country seems to have woke up this morning to their Saturday cartoons as usual.

    • Kent Calhoun

      They still have cartoons on Saturday?

  • Octavio

    He’s someone I would be proud to vote into office. You lucky folks in Pennsylvania, I am jealous.

  • Galvestonian

    I don’t hear no stinking trumphets…no horsemen of the ‘paco-lisp, no Jeebus floating in the sky, the cemetaries are still full of the un-resurrected, no plagues, no countries getting all swallowed up. All that I’m hearing is a bunch of hateful bigots, gnashing their teeth, bitching, moaning and weeping copious tears about how unfair this whole gay equality deal turned out and what they plan on doing – maybe – sometime – possibly – next Tuesday – in the future – at an unannounced date – soon anyway. Send Money !

  • Queequeg

    Hot dude, and a sense of humor too!

  • Curieux Bleu

    Brian, you are a very handsome guy with your tongue in your cheek!

    Up here in Canuckistan we’ve had single payer health coverage of everyone for almost 50 years, and same sex marriage for 10 years across the entire country.

    So I guess your target audience of gay-haters will be left with one or the other of your other two options!

    • billbear1961

      Yep

    • D. J.

      You are rid of Bill Whatcott too.

  • SilasMarner

    Hey, let’s call’em out on their promises. After all, a promise IS a promise.

  • GreatLakeSailor

    Uff-Dah! What a morning. First we overslept because we were out late celebrating. No harm I figure. I open my email expecting to find my marching orders from BigGayAgenda…nothing. I’m starting to think they have my email addy wrong ’cause I have yet to receive anything from them. OK, I read the news; I can improvise. I fill up the SuperSoaker with SemenLatte and head out to round up the married hetros in the neighborhood. I figure there’s gonna be a mass divorce before they’re all loaded onto the black UN helicopters and off to the FEMA camps. We get outside and WutTheFuck!?!? No locus. No tornadoes. No earthquakes…not even a fracking tremor!? (OK, the fracking tremor is easy to explain – we got no fracking around here.) No sulfur smell in the air. No church bells a pealing. In fact it was a fabulous morning, 75F, light lake breeze, sun shining. I talked to the neighbors across the street – a married guy & gal, 2 kids in middle school – they’re cleaning their garage, and I’m thinking why bother? The new gay-married couple that will get their house will do that, duh! Anywho, we got to talking, a few cups of coffee, paint vs siding, double pane v triple pane, crappy little dog the other neighbors have, yadda, yadda, yadda. The coffee made me wanna pee, so I said goodbye, got back in the house, realized I’d forgotten the SuperSoaker in the house, peed (washed hands), and put some beets from Farmers’ Market in the oven to roast.

    Then I remembered: Hey!, where’s my Gaypocalypse the Fundies promised me? Maybe it’s daylight savings time screwin’ things up? I’ll check back in an hour…
