WMD MADE A DIFFERENCE

*

While Fair(y) Wisconsin is wondering what went wrong for them, the Wisconsin Marriage Defenders celebrate victory confident that WE were part of what went wrong for them.

WMD distributed literature in 15 different Wisconsin cities. We wrote letters to newspapers, we managed this blog, we were interviewed on radio. We bypassed to biased media and went straight to the people.

We permeated our own city, Oshkosh, with some 15,000 pieces of literature. That's one to nearly every household.

Did it make a difference?

Compare to similar sized college towns. LaCrosse and Eau Claire both have UW branches and are similar in size to Oshkosh.

Eau Claire was for the bill by just 1.7%. LaCrosse actually went against the bill by 16 votes, a virtual 50/50 split. Oshkosh however, was 58% to 42% for the bill - a 16 point rout.

Al Doyle deserves the lion's share of the credit. He personally went on about a dozen of the excursions, often accompanied by his sons. Dick Ives and his son went on several. Christie and I as well. Dale Johnson had flyers inserted into the Buyer's Guide. Many others were involved.

I'm sure Fair(y) Wisconsin knows who we are. If not, we'll do our best to keep reminding them.

    Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
    Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
    -- Proverbs 16: 18-19 (KJV)

    Kin James, by the way, was gay.

    Perhaps Kin james was, but King James was not.

    Since you seem to esteem the KJV. Maybe you should read Romans 1.

    He might've been gay, but he was certainly not homosexual.

    I doubt you'll want to actually learn the FACTS and TRUTH, but if you do, they are available at:

    god! I can't believe yall are still at each other's throats...

    You should read the third commandment....

     
  • At 3:59 PM, Blogger T.G. said…

    3rd Commandment:

    Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

    That has to be specified because the Catholic church combines the first two commandments to excuse their idols, and makes this their 2nd commandment.

    Anyway, the sodomites are still at our throats. As always, THEY make the issue public. If they'd stop crying, the issue would be over. In our local paper they are whining every day about how horrible it is that society refused to bend over backwards (we certainly don't want to bend over forwards) and acknowledge their perverted behavior as "marriage".

    Since when does one man sticking his sexual organ into the anus of another man constitute "marriage"? It's gross to even state in clinical terms.

    ok, sorry I did that...

    but I am just amazed how somehow some people's inner political selfs weren't equipped with an "off" switch!

    Good grief and bah humbug!

     
  • At 4:35 PM, Blogger T.G. said…

    If the issue doesn't die, there's no reason to hit the off switch. As long as the sodomites press the issue, we will counter. I think you want us to back off so the lavendar lobby can press on unopposed. Don't hold your breath.

    The Third Commandment can kiss my...butt with the rest of the hypocritical Christian bull.

    "Since when does one man sticking his sexual organ into the anus of another man constitute "marriage"? It's gross to even state in clinical terms."

    Well...considering that marriage is more than the right to have sex, I'd say that two guys could get married if they wanted to. After all, it's not like it would be impossible to go through a marriage without having sex, stupid as that sounds.

    I'm not going to try and pull your head out of you *ahem*, seeing how far it's been shoved in, but I will say this: Your bigotry may hold ground today, but once the world realizes how stupid it's been (it's happened before; racism, the spanish inquisition, etc. where people regretted it later), people like you will be placed in the back seat of society with the KKK and other hate groups. You should all be ashamed of yourselves, and your pathetic judging of other human beings.

     
  • At 7:24 AM, Blogger T.G. said…

    Yeah, we shouldn't judge people like murderers, child molesters, rapists, or homosexuals.

    Don't criticize any murderers, thieves, rapists, or child molesters - that would be pathetic JUDGING! And certainly don't JUDGE Christians - that would make you a pathetic HYPOCRITE.

    Yep, being Homosexual certainly makes them all murderers, rapists, child-molesters, or at LEAST the equivalent.

    There is a difference between judging a criminal and judging a gay person.

    Murderers? Rapists? Child-Molesters? These are people that deserve to be judged. The only exception would be if the murder was justifiable, at least in moral grounds (aka, this guy killed my family, so I killed him).

    Homosexuals? What are they? People with a different sexual orientation? That is not a crime. They should not be judged on their homosexuality, but on their actions. And, before you say anything, being 'gross' doesn't count.

    I hope that "Wisconsin Marriage Defenders" reported the money it spent on its 15 cities' worth of literature to the state Elections Board.

     
  • At 9:48 PM, Blogger T.G. said…

    Can't report anything if we didn't spend anything. All materials were donated.

     
  • At 10:17 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Donated money and materials must be reported. For example, Elton John donated the use of one of his songs, that is where his $20,000 "donation" came from.

    I will pass out gospel tracts anytime I want, any amount I want, without reporting to anybody. This is not the Soviet Union. We have a First amendment guaranteeing us religious freedom.

     
  • At 1:25 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Don'tcha love how some people think they are above the law?

    There are clear laws regarding campaigning. No group is exempt from following those laws.

    The First Amendment gives freedoms of religion and speech, but don't give you the freedom to ignore campaign finance laws.

     
  • At 10:01 AM, Blogger T.G. said…

    Yeah, imagine the gov't thinking they are above the law like that!

    Unfortunately, most Americans no longer have a concept of how our country is supposed to work. WE the PEOPLE are the sovereign and the gov't is our servant. They are not supposed to tell us what do do - we are supposed to tell them. They are not to infringe on our rights in any way.

    Passing out gospel tracts isn't covered by any campaign finance law anyway. We're still doing it, even though the election is past.

    Actually there have been some questions about King James sexual orentation. Seems he did fancy the young men oif court.

    I've done my part.

    You're going to have to reread your blog comments back to the time Al Gore invented the Internet.

    What a dope, trying to kill the homo within! Just can't be done guy, no matter how many leaflets you pass out or comments you delete.

    Silly Rabbit! LOL

    Nope, King James was not queer, read http://www.baptistlink.com/godandcountry/html/king_james_queer_.0 if you're interested in the truth (which, it's evident you are not, but maybe this once you'll make an exception).

    Looks like that link didn't come out right on the last post, so here it is again.

    Okay, let's try the second half. You'll have to cut and paste to get both halves together.
