PhoboQuotable – Tim Wildmon

“In its never-ending quest to shred America’s Judeo-Christian value system, the left is planning to hurriedly push through a ‘thought crimes’ bill. So-called ‘hate crimes’ laws are really laws that criminalize thought, because they punish an individual not for what he did but for what he thought.

Pepsi’s Gay Ad

The latest ad from Pepsi plays on the old “Surprise! He’s a HOMO!” schtick. Meh. Not too funny, but not really offensive – except maybe the expressions on the faces of the male friends.
