My Friend, I hope he doesn't mind me calling him that.. Vast has asked us to help him

My friend Vast, who comments here frequently and has his own blog called Vast Variety and whose state of Iowa just made it possible for him and his long time companion to become engaged and soon to be married, has made a request.

He would like us to go to the NOM web site and, well I will just let him say it in his own words...

I've been posting comments in the Blog that NOM runs on their site trying to get them to debate facts and they keep deleting my posts. Maybe it's because they don't have any facts. I'd like to call on people to head over to their blog and help me try to get them to debate the issue.

Isn’t it wonderful that Iowa is smart enough to see that people want equality for all.
Now that your lies are being exposed with your ads it should soon start showing how you are with everything else. Same sex marriage will not hurt anyone. How can 2 people being content and happy hurt you?? No matter what their names are.

I just posted your lies for all to see on my web site… Here’s hoping I get lots of traffic today…lol

How long will you leave my comment before you delete it. Censorship is alive and well on your web site. We will see….

There is no reason for you to fear same sex marriage. It is no threat to you. Why are you afraid?? Give me one reason… just one??? Anyone???

Why are comments moderated on your site?? What are you afraid of??

Again I ask, and issue a challenge to you to answer me, What threat is same sex marriage to you?? What harm is my 2 friends who are named Joe and Sam or Sally and Sue getting married to you?? How can that possibly affect you or your marriage in any way??

Thanks for the help Annette and yes you can call me a friend. =)

They are still deleting my posts.

Annette said...

So far mine aren't deleted.. they are still pending moderation...lol

Vast said...

Looks like I'm not the only one they are refusing to talk to. I stumbled onto this blog by searching the NOM's twitter account.

The NOM Twitter account is.

I heard NOM President Maggie Gallagher say that the quotes in the commercial are based on factual incidents. Can someone point me to that on this website. How is a California doctor not able to do his or her job because of gay marriage?

Theodore, with all due respect, no one is seeking your approval or asking that you express approval. They’re just asking that you mind your own business. It’s called live and let live.

I posted there, and I see it. Yet, when I copied it to here, it says awaiting moderation!

I really don’t get it! What is wrong with equality for ALL, regardless of sexual orientation? Why deny equal rights under the law to ANYONE?

Don’t believe in same-sex marriage? Simple solution: DON’T MARRY A SAME-SEX PARTNER!

Live and live!


Not sure where they are time-wise; here in the Eastern time zone, it's 1:35am

Took my comments out.. they aren't waiting for moderation anymore.. they are just gone.. So, I have been censured.. Way to go NOM.. don't like dissenting voices do you.

trish in SW FL said...

I couldn't resist--had to go back and see if my comment ever got approved or not. It's not there, so I guess I was censured too.

Oh well, I am in GOOD company! :)
