Don’t Let The Door Hit Your Ass On The Way Out

Gay-hater and founder and former head of the National Organization for Marriage, Maggie Gallagher, having found one outlet to publish her stupid columns, is packing it in, so that no outlet will publish her stupid columns.

On the way out, she leaves us with these gems:

Every life is precious. It is better to care for your children than to kill them.

I can't argue with that.  Of course, I suspect her definition of "children" includes one-celled zygotes.

Sex makes babies. Society needs babies. Babies need their mother and their father. Men and women need each other. We all need a strong marriage culture, whether we choose to marry or not.

"Strong marriage culture", of course, doesn't include same-sex marriage, since it is biologically impossible for same sex couples to raise children, I guess.

My own baby — the one who was born about the time my syndicated column launched — will graduate from high school this June and go off to college in the fall.

Right.  Your baby.  The one born out of wedlock.  And now, you've subjected us to your 17 years of guilt by lecturing everybody else on what a proper family should be.

So in this, my final column, I say my farewell to optimism and my hello to hope.

Gallagher despairs because she thinks she will lose on DOMA.

And so another cultural dinosaur shuffles off the stage.  So long, Maggie.
