Australian Haters Have The Super Sadz

Via press release from the Australian Christian Lobby:

The passing of the Dean Smith bill unamended through the House of Representatives today was evidence of the disregard that many MPs have for the freedoms of Australians and the upholding of international human rights obligations, the Coalition for Marriage said today.

“It is deeply disappointing that both the Prime Minister and the Opposition Leader reneged on the assurances they gave to the Australian people during the marriage campaign,” Coalition for Marriage spokesman, Lyle Shelton said.

“The Australian people were promised that their freedom of speech, freedom of religion and parental rights would be protected in any same-sex marriage legislation, and this has not happened. “It’s classic bait-and-switch. Australians were told that they could vote ‘yes’ and have their freedoms protected, but were given the Dean Smith bill instead.

“As a result of the parliament failing to uphold the rights and freedoms of ordinary Australians, we expect to see similar consequences for free speech, freedom of religion and parental rights as what we have seen overseas.

“We are grateful to those MPs who stood by the Australian people and stood up for freedom in trying to pass some amendments through the House. Unfortunately, they were too few today. The Coalition for Marriage promised to stand up for the rights and freedoms of Australians, and we intend to keep doing that,” he concluded.

#EatShitLyle trended on Australian Twitter earlier today.

      These Christianist liars have been attacking public education for decades cause they want to scam millions off taxpayers indoctrinating kids in more lies. No wonder they can’t or won’t think straight.

  • Boreal

    How have they lost any freedom, except that to treat gay people as less than human?

    • GayOldLady

      That’s it…..They’re afraid they will lose the ability to discriminate.

      • Gustav2

        Some of my rural Ohio in-laws are still pissed off they can’t use the n-word and [email protected] in public.

        Their free speech has been curtailed!

        • marshlc

          You’ve of course reminded them that they can use those words in public, just that they may experience other people using *their* free speech rights in return?

          • Gustav2

            Most people just politely walk away and then they get miffed. They want validation.

          • kareemachan

            Tough shit for them, then.

        • GayOldLady

          Tell them they can still use those words, but they can’t expect back slaps anymore. All of the false constructs our society has created were done to keep certain people or groups of people in control of society. White above Black, brown, Rich above poor & middle class, men above women, Christian above Jew, Muslim, etc. Straight above LGBT, Beauty above Average, the list goes on and on and in every aspect of life. I don’t know how we get back to just being Human beings and stop all the categorizing that drives humanity to division.

          • Todd20036

            When I use those words, I get a mouth on my dick.

    Oh the joy of removing special rights from these Christ-O-Fascists is doing my little heart good. Just as in AmeriKKKa today these vile sociopaths will work diligently to inflict their lies and fraud on humanity as if they are all the Pope. We of the LGBTQ & Cis-Gendered Communities must remain united with our allies and keep these sick delusional Missionary of Hate from putrefying life, love and the art of living.

    Senator Al Franken (D-MN) is scheduled to give a speech on the Senate floor Thursday after his colleagues called for him to resign over multiple groping and sexual harassment allegations.

    Franken is scheduled to speak at 11:45 a.m. (ET).

    • netxtown

      DO NOT RESIGN!!! Let the voter’s in Minnesota decide. It is what Mitch wants!

        You mean like Alabama voters and Roy Moore?

    • HZ81

      Ugh. Not looking forward to this.

      But, I will say, voicing doubts about his guilt sure gets you in trouble with the Twitter Supreme Court. Fuck. They don’t even care if you’ve been assaulted and have a differing opinion.

    • PickyPecker

      Stand UP for ‘due process,’ Al !! The court of pupular opinion and social media is NOT the arbitor of your fate. Stick to your guns and let the Ethics Committee do their job…as you do yours for your constituants.

    • Adam Schmidt

      I’m betting that when a whole raft of senators all came out saying he should resign yesterday that something huge came forward and that was the Democrats getting ahead of it. That they could say that they called for him to resign BEFORE the big news came out. Otherwise I can’t make sense of why out of nowhere, 35 Democrat Senators in one day called for him to step down.

  • BartmanLA

    It’s incredible how insistent these so called “Christians” are when they are challenged about how inaccurate their statements and “facts” are, next thing we know they’ll start sticking their fingers in their ears and keep screaming how right they are… such childish behavior and pathetic efforts to convince their supporters they have the only answer and it’s the absolutely the right one… Give it up Shirley you LOST.

      Drinking onion juice is fine and dandy, but there are so many other things…

      Hey, they like ancient things, right? Let’s try to get them to use the old treatments for baldness, for leprosy, for impotence and for their digestive issues. Introduce them to the four Humours, and ask if they’ve balanced their black and yellow biles.

        We should get Alex Jones to latch onto the idea that lobotomies will protect them from HAARP and the chemtrails.

        I propose Obama telling them to NOT get lobotomies, and then we sit back and watch them line up in droves.

        In the old days when I was a child, in the tiny English village where we lived it was still commonly believed that cow shit applied to the scalp would make your hair grow. A number of balding, male farm workers smelt pretty disgusting, as I remember. Couldn’t hurt to make this a recommendation.

        • Karl Dubhe 2

          The Romans used bat guano for the same purpose.

      • Nic Peterson

        Don’t forget the leeches. Lots of them.

        • Karl Dubhe 2

          They are useful, actually. If you cut your finger off, they’ll try to put it back and use the leeches to promote blood flow. IIUC. 🙂

      Someone should tell them that any naturally occurring hormone in a plant gets degraded into amino acids through the stomach.

      You cannot get masculine from eating food.

      In fact, even testosterone pills only help if you have a deficiency as noted by a doctor.

      If you take supplements, the body reacts by reducing production from the testes..

      Science happens whether you believe it or not.

      • -M-

        Estrogen and testosterone are sterols not proteins.

        But phytoestrogens from food are not going to change anyone’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

    I am just a pretty typical dumb American, but even I know that the Dean Smith Bill had many compromises within it and in true compromise left neither side truly happy. This shitfuck knows that and still whines that he didn’t get the chance to shove through more amendments that were mostly put forward so the MP that put it forward could return to his constituency and say they tried. I shouldn’t be, but I am always surprised at how willing christians are to lie to get what they want.

    “the right of a child to be allowed to know the love of both parents” If that was really a guiding principle for you, there would be a lot of evidence around to show how hard you’ve been fighting divorce. Or at the very least that you have been working very hard to bring about the kind of non adversarial divorce so that visitation rights are not used as club to beat the other parent with. [checks wikipedia…] Hmm, no mention of any work actually having any impact in the real world on helping families with children stay together, or helping children stay in contact with their parents. Odd.

    What part of a 60+ percent ‘yes’ majority in the “non-binding opinion survey” gave them the impression that the peoples’ free speech was being infringed upon?

    They had their stupid referendum despite there being more than enough reason to not have it. They even had Australia’s hate speech laws temporarily rescinded just so they can run their campaign because doing so fairly was just impossible. Not to mention the amount of money they got given by the government (from the taxpayers, no less) to run their stupid campaign, If anything they were allowed to speak more freely than ever before, they were given undue privileges in this matter!

    Wow, who would have ever thought that the arguments that didn’t sway a single voter in Maryland, Minnesota, Washington, Maine or a single legislator in dozens of legislatures would have exactly the same lack of effect in Australia?

    While I’ve seen the occasional (and highly unconvincing) anonymous online post saying “I was in favour, but an icky LGBTQ person said something mean to me so I’m against it now” the reality is that no sane, unbribed person ever changes from being pro-marriage equality to anti-marriage equality

    Such BS, when you press them, and they’re honest (a rarity I know), it comes down to their ability to disapprove of us, or punish us. Gay Old Lady has a good comment on that downthread. Funny, they don’t feel so strongly when given the chance to try it on each other e.g. divorce and remarriage. Back in the day when I could be shocked, I remember being shocked that the Republicants didn’t use it on Twitler: how he is on his third “marriage.”

    The part of the passage of equality that got me most wasn’t the proclamation, which had me grabbing for a tissue, nor the joy and cheers in the chamber and the gallery at the announcement, although that made me find another tissue. What made me grab the box of tissues was the song, started in the gallery and then sung by the MPs, too. I hadn’t realized it was by The Seekers. I was overwhelmed by the sentiment. What do we have? “Ahm prowed to be Murkan cuz I know that ah am free.” Yeah, right. How much I wish we could claim this song, or adapt it if it ever became true here again.
