Oregon Jebus-freaks Give Up On Gay Rights Repeal Initiatives

Alternative title: Where’s Your God Now?

The AP reports that social conservatives and church groups have thrown in the towel in their attempt to get two initiatives on the 2008 ballot; the initiatives, if passed, would have repealed two gay rights statutes enacted by the Oregon Legislature in 2007. The first statute allowed for same-sex couples to enter into domestic partnerships, while the second barred discrimination in the workplace due to sexual orientation.

Of course, opponents of the two statutes now say they will work towards getting the repeal measures on the 2010 ballot. Good plan, guys! I mean, if you can’t muster enough outrage at the “homosexual agenda” now, it makes perfect sense to try again in two years when people care even less. On the other hand, I’m pleased to see social conservatives expending their time and money on fruitless endeavors.

    Only Jesus-strength OxyClean has the stain-fighting power to remove tough, stuck-on shame!

  2. Sakaki says:

    That’s because he ran out of OxyClean, Vincent.

  3. Vincent says:

    Ossie will never scrub out the Stain of Shame!

  4. Jake says:

    I really thought we had eliminated mud-gulping from this blog. For shame Ossie, for shame.

  5. Vincent says:

    You’ll never wash it out, you mean.

  6. CJ Ciaramella says:

    I’ll never forget the Stain of Shame.

  7. Vincent says:

    You’re forgetting Stain of Shame.

    No, you guys just never went to vacation bible school. We also had Blood of The Lamb Red and Pit of Eternal Damnation Black.

    I think you had to have the Crayola 96 pack of colors, featuring the built-in sharpener, for Flesh of Christ, and Mac ‘n’ Cheese, and some of the scented ones.

  10. Vincent says:

    We don’t know that Jesus rode dinosaurs… But he probably did!

    I dunno know about you, but when I was little, I never had a “Flesh of Christ” color in my crayon box.

  11. Timothy says:

    Oh look a fundie! Why don’t you go ahead and ride your Dinosaur Jesus Horse on out of here?

  12. Michelle Haley says:

    That is only the best kind of gulping, who doesn’t like a nice tossed salad every once-in-awhile?

  13. Ossie says:

    According to the Oregon Citizens Alliance, 93 percent of homosexual men have participated in mud gulping.

    Speaking of paleoconservatives, you can watch Victor Davis Hanson hand Pat Buchanan’s ass to him on a platter here.
