Homophobes have organized tantrum denouncing legalization of marriage equality

 'Porno' Pete LaBarbera and his merry band of bigots held a rally in front of the United States Supreme Court to protest the fourth anniversary of the Obergefell decision, which legalized marriage equality. They've done it before and it is always sparsely attended, except for hecklers, curious onlookers, and the intrepid monitors from groups like People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch.

As a matter of fact, Pete Montgomery, Senior Fellow from People for the American Way, are responsible for the tweets and pictures (except for the one I include. When you see it, you will know):

The attendees of today's sour grapes rally via Peter Montgomery, none of which are deserving of identification, but I think you can recognize one or two.

Let me give 'Porno' Pete a compliment. He seems to have lost weight since the last time he attended one of these "rallies."  He used to give new definition to the phrase "baby got back!"

(Editor's note - I am only playing, folks. I am not "fat-shaming." I think his tushy is rather adorable.) 

But I digress. As you can see, Wednesday's rally was filled with the same "gays are immoral, evil hedonists want to recruit children, silence Christians, rebel against God and destroy American society while engaging in all sorts of disgustingly wild, and passionate sex" rhetoric we have come to expect from LaBarbera and his type:

Peter Montgomery has a wonderful write up of the event here and even includes video of the entire "rally" (for those who are really into sadomasochism.) As much as I hate to sound like I'm gloating, looking at this event is a wonderful reminder for us of what we had to overcome to gain the right to marry. It should remind us that the power of love can always overcome the most vile hatred. It should also remind us to be vigilant and not assume this right is for keeps. For every one homophobe like LaBarbera willing to make a fool of himself in public, there are probably several others plotting behind the scenes against us.
