"Dumb Starbucks"? Couldn't Have Said It Better Ourselves

A new coffee shop in California is creating quite a buzz using some novel branding. Behold, Dumb Starbucks.

We did a bit of a double-take when we saw the first reports about the new cafe because of the close rhyme of its name with our own Dump Starbucks campaign.

Dump StarbucksWhile it probably isn't what the founders of the new shop had in mind, we think it's fair to call a company dumb when it suggests that anyone who doesn't agree with its radical agenda to support redefining marriage should take their business across the street.

That is why, after all, we have maintained our call for all marriage supporters worldwide to do just that: Dump Starbucks for its corporate intolerance toward those who hold the basic and common sense belief in marriage as the union between one man and one woman, and to instead buy their coffee elsewhere. Maybe those marriage supporters in California will want to give Dumb Starbucks a try instead? Send us your pics if you do!

Philosoraptor Thinks About Gay Marriage


Cartoon Lampoons French President's Refusal to Acknowledge Size of Pro-Marriage Opposition

President Hollande is attempting to claim there were 2/3rds less than the actual number of pro-marriage demonstrators last Sunday.

This french cartoon translated reads:

Advisor: "There are more than 1 million, Mr. President."

President Hollande: "We will say that they are only 340,000. After all, this law is to end with what is real, isn't it?"

French Cartoons Against Gay Marriage

The French people love satire and these three cartoons are examples of artists satirizing the proposal for gay marriage in France:

"OK, I will accept that I have 2 Moms"
"But, then where is my Dad?"

Man on the left: “This child makes me feel hopeless”
Child: “Mommy?”
Man on the right: "Yes, she refuses to open to modernity”

“But actually…. I would have loved to have a Mom”
“You are selfish! You should be happy to know that you provided happiness to your two Dads!”

Eager Minnesota Voter Attempts to Support Marriage Amendment Yesterday at the Polls!

Several voters were so eager to cast their vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment that they showed up early!

Even though it’s not on the primary ballot, the hotly-debated marriage amendment appears to be drawing voters to the polls this Tuesday.

“I’m interested in voting for the marriage law,” said one voter outside Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in south Minneapolis, a neighborhood polling place.

She was referring to the proposed amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. -- CBS Local

Not to worry -- everyone will get their chance on November 6th!

The Chick-fil-A "Marriage Cows"

We posted this on our Facebook page but wanted to make sure our blog-only readers saw this as well!

One Gay Internet Celebrity: I'm Eating at Chick-fil-A

Antoine Dodson became an internet sensation after an interview he gave when an intruder tried to rape his sister went viral and became a song too.

He's just saying: he's eating at Chick-fil-A.  Because he likes the chicken:

Woman Plans to "Marry" a Neighborhood

Rod Dreher calls this "the slippery slope strikes again!"

Remember the Seattle crackpot who married a building? Now she claims to be engaged to a neighborhood:

Now, Aivaz has informed the Seattle City Council she’ll be marrying the Yesler Terrace neighborhood near the Central District. She is, after all, widowed now that her beloved warehouse has been demolished.

I knew it. You let a girl marry a warehouse, and next thing you know, she’s a damn polygamist.

Giant Turtles Divorce After 115 Years Together

A little humor to wrap up the week with:

You can't say they didn't try.

After an impressive 115 years together, two giant turtles at an Austrian zoo are refusing to share their cage anymore, the Austrian Times reported Friday.

"We get the feeling they can't stand the sight of each other anymore," said Helga Happ, director of the Klagenfurt-based zoo, where the turtles -- Bibi, the female and Poldi, the male -- have lived for the last 36 years. Before that, they called Basel Zoo in Switzerland home.

According to the paper, zoo staff realized something was amiss when Bibi bit off a chunk of her partner's shell. When the attacks continued, Poldi was moved to another cage.

Animal experts even attempted couples' counseling -- feeding the turtles aphrodisiacs and encouraging them to play games together. But so far, efforts have failed to bring the shelled lovers back together. -- HuffPo

Over-Eager MSNBC Host Thomas Roberts Reports Fake Story Targeting NOM!

The Daily Caller:

If you’ve ever tuned into to MSNBC weekdays between 11 a.m. and noon ET, you are likely to have seen at least one segment focused on a LGBT issue moderated by host Thomas Roberts. But sometimes, Roberts and company might be trying a little too hard to push these issues to the forefront.

On his Wednesday broadcast, Roberts reported that technology juggernauts Apple and Microsoft were “marrying up” and taking on same-sex marriage opponent the National Organization for Marriage.

“In the meantime, get this,” Roberts said. “Tech rivals Apple and Microsoft are marrying up and asking the National Organization for Marriage its supporters to boycott their companies. This follows the release of secret documents last week showing part of the organization’s strategy to quote ‘drive a wedge’ between blacks and gays on the issue of marriage equality.”

Only one problem: They’re not “marrying up,” at least for now.

The report was apparently based on a “satirical post” published on the Daily Kos on Monday by Scott Wooledge. The post was later republished by The Huffington Post’s comedy section and was presented as satire.

Talk about a rough week!

Video: "Chris Christie Go Away You're Not Welcome" MA?!

This is just weird: a guy from Britain who lives in Massachusetts lecturing the Governor of New Jersey on the sacred right of Americans ... to redefine marriage?

SuperBowl Ad Redefines Marriage To Mean Man-And-Bacon?

Folks who watched the SuperBowl this Sunday may have noticed this commercial:

Tongue-in-cheek (bacon-in-mouth?), I have to wonder if this kind of joke is more funny as our country currently flirts with the notion we can make marriage ... whatever we want it to be.

The Hill Reports Gingrich Signs NOM Marriage Pledge

Then ends by claiming his support of marriage "could be dangerous in the general election."

Hah. Hah. Hah. Ho, Ho, Ho.

Gee, that's why President Obama claims he opposes gay marriage too, right?

Zoo Keepers: Gay Penguin Separation Means Survival of the Species

Canada's National Post:

Splitting up a pair of potentially homosexual African penguins and pairing them with females might sound anti-gay, but keepers at the Toronto Zoo insist they are simply trying to preserve the species.

Pedro, 10, and Buddy, 20, were brought to the Toronto Zoo this year from Pittsburgh’s National Aviary to “pair-bond” with a couple of eligible females. Instead, the pair bonded with each other. Zookeepers now report seeing the pair snuggling, calling to each other and displaying courtship behaviour.

This week, the Toronto Zoo says it will be forced isolate the pair.

“The two girls have been following them; we just have to get the boys interested in looking at them,” said Tom Mason, curator of birds and invertebrates at the Toronto Zoo.

With Pedro and Buddy’s species on the cusp of extinction, Mr. Mason insists that the Toronto Zoo cannot afford to let a season go by without passing on the pair’s genes. “If [Pedro and Buddy] weren’t genetically important, then we’d let them do their thing,” Mr. Mason said.
