  1. Don’t tell me, let me guess, they’re a christian group….

    Hateful little wannabe tyrants are so transparent and so much at the core of why I associate their belief system with bigotry.

    He seems to be under the impression that a man and woman have to be married to make a baby too as he says that is the only way.

    Think he needs to study biology again

    1. It’s the truth, the sperm and the eggs won’t work because they remain switched “off” until you get married and then God switches them to “on” and only then are you ready as a married couple to make and raise children of the Christian faith.
      Only married opposite sex couples can reproduce, blah! blah! blah!.

  3. Joseph Backholm is a huge “mo”. That guy set my Gaydar off into the red zone just like Tony Perkins, Ralph Reed, Jeff Sessions and the screeching Lindsey Graham. Yes, the American radical right is filled with repressed, self-loathing closet cases.

    1. He looks gay to me too.

  4. It’s a bit of a shame he’s such a homophobe, as I’d gladly show him my own bit of “scientific reality”.

    But my mind keeps trying to put the name Joseph Backholm alongside Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, Ken Mehlman and our own Keith O’Brien. I can’t work out why. Maybe if I wait long enough, I’ll figure it out…

    Apparently Mr. Backholm never learned that judicial review is an integral part of the “democratic process.”

  6. Poor deluded man. There’s a reason why both the DOMA and Prop H8 decisions are to be announced by SCOTUS tomorrow. June 26, 2013 marks the ten year anniversary of the landmark Lawrence v. Texas decision. This decision struck down the sodomy law in Texas and, by extension, invalidated sodomy laws in thirteen other states, making same-sex sexual activity legal in every U.S. state and territory. The Court’s selection of this date to announce its pending decisions would seem to be propitious as well as timely.

  7. Ha-ha, what a bunch of idiots!

  8. Horrible views aside, it doesn’t surprise me they’ve already written their statements. I’m sure this site already has several articles prepared to deal with every possible outcome.

      Yes it’s such a major issue I’m sure a lot of groups are good to go with some prepared statements covering each eventuality.

  9. Did he receive a divine message or something?

    What a douche bag!

  10. They did the same thing in Illinois, calling a delay a ‘victory’.
    Both there and in the Supreme Court, the issue hasn’t vanished, it’s just that the legislators and judges have, for one reason or another, delayed their decision making for a later date.

    These people really should stop getting ahead of themselves. I am reminded of the Boy Scouts decision to allow gay children as scouts, when those people against the change were so sure they would win, they never bothered to write a statement up in the event they lost.

  11. I believe this goes to show that groups such as the Family Policy Institute have no true interest or alliance with anything other than their own blind ignorance. To congratulate the courts in one statement and tear them down in another demonstrates this. The only ruling for this matter should be win-win in favour of equality for ALL.

  12. I mean seriously, could this guy be any more gay! One picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goed.

  13. When I saw the headline I thought it was just possible that they’d been tipped off and had released the statement early to mock us. Then when I read the story I realised it’s just a bunch of idiots who can’t work a computer properly.

  14. egg all over all their faces!!

  15. So option 3 it is then!

    No two ways about it, God is just not on their side.

    Oh FFS.

    He’s as bent as a Kirby grip.

    I look straighter than he does.

    Talk about a self loathing dick.

    I would feel sorry for him if it was not for the harm he is happy to proscribe onto others due to his own failings.
