Miami Gay-Bashing Club Calls Gay Activists "Bigoted Extremists"
|Not-so-breaking news: This guy's a hateful prick.|
This morning the coalition sent out an email to what could have been as many as 150,000 people saying Shank was "shamelessly attacked for defending Father's Day!" The Sun-Sentinel reports.
"These bigoted extremists owe Commissioner Jed Shank, and everyone else a public apology. Of course, they won't do it, thus showing their true agenda of hate, bigotry, intolerance and discrimination," wrote executive director Anthony Verdugo, before returning to his cave-lair of evil.
Somewhere, a pot called a kettle black, except the kettle was like, all rainbow-colored and not really black.
Verdugo has a history of being a slime-sucking double-talker: He said after Carlos Gimenez was elected Miami-Dade mayor that "the vast majority of Miami-Dade residents were "rightly alarmed by his disconcerting links to a couple of fringe hate groups operating locally." He was talking about gay rights organizations that supported Gimenez in the election.
The Miami Herald reported on a similarly worded press release yesterday that may be the same statement; in it, Verdugo asks "Since when is a proclamation extolling 'pride' in biologically aberrant sexual behavior and practices more important than celebrating a nationally observed day honoring fathers?" and calls last month's gay pride vote an "anti-Family, antisocial Aberrosexualist proclamation." Love thy neighbor indeed.
