Personalized Quotes

19 10 2012

I think it is easy to hear a quote and not really think about the impact it makes personally. I am going to list several quotes, and substitute my son’s name for the words “gay, homosexual, etc…” because that is really what they are saying. Feel free to substitute your name or that of your LGBT loved one or friend.

I’d rather be black than Jake because when you’re black you don’t have to tell
your mother.  ~Charles Pierce, 1980

“In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge been Jake. That’s not to pick on Jake. It’s not, you know,  man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing.” — Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, April 7, 2003, in an interview with The Associated Press.

“This is a very serious matter, because it is our children who are the prize for this community. Jake is specifically targeting our children.”

Senator Michele Bachmann, on the gay community and same-sex marriage, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 20, 2004.

“It isn’t that Jake will get some rights. It’s that everyone else in our state will lose rights. For instance, parents will lose the right to protect and direct the upbringing of their children. Because our K-12 public school system, of which ninety percent of all youth are in the public school system, they will be required to learn that Jake is normal, equal and perhaps you should try to be Jake. And that will occur immediately, that all schools will begin teaching Jake.”

 Senator Michele Bachmann, on what will happen if her same-sex marriage ban amendment fails to pass in 2004, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News,” hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 6, 2004.

If Jake is given civil rights, then everyone will want
them!  ~Author unknown, as seen on a button at

I’m a supporter of Jake’s rights.  And not a closet supporter either.  From the
time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon Jake.  There are so many qualities that make up a human being… by the
time I get through with all the things that I really admire about Jake, what he
does with his private parts is probably so low on the list that it is
irrelevant.  ~Paul Newman

It always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of Jake.  It’s
like disapproving of rain.  ~Francis Maude
