People Acting Up — Love It
This happened yesterday:
In honor of Mother’s Day, Christine Weick an anti-gay woman from Grandville, Michigan, chose to stand on a corner holding a sign that said
“Thank your Mom today, for not being gay.”
Weick claims she’s not a bigot and that hers isn’t a message of hate. She just feels compelled to go out on Mother’s Day and offend as many people as possible – in the name of her God, of course.
Weick soon had company, as another sign barer arrived on the scene, to offer a counter message.
“Thank your mom if you’re not a bigot.”
Somewhere along the line someone threw a slushie at Weick which is unfortunate but imho, that’s a whole other story.
People joined the “Thank your mom if you’re not a bigot” sign holder:
After the slushie incident, more counter protesters arrived, including Zach Hoag, who brought a sign that read:
“But two moms can be great.”
During a short interview with Wood TV, Hoag said:
“Love one another. I think that two moms or two dads can love and nurture a child just the exact same way a mother and father could,”
Later in the day another man showed up with a sign that said:
“F*** her. I disagree,”
Another woman also came out to hold a sign that read:
“I [heart] gays.”
The reason I love this is because obviously it is Weick’s right to hold a sign that said what her sign said, but I’m willing to bet she surrounds herself with like-minded people and like minded so-called news organizations and like-minded radio talkers and that she thinks she’s in the (vast) majority in her thinking. The conservatism in the MSM is overwhelming.
And I’m willing to bet she thought she’d be a bit of a local hero. So congratulations to the “Thank your mom if you’re not a bigot” sign guy, to Zach Hoag, to the man who held a sign that said “F*** her, I disagree” and to the woman who proclaimed “I [heart] gays.” I love seeing people act up against resistance to change, to people who don’t want to let others live and let live and to this notion that conservative thinking dominates.
Look around. It doesn’t!
The folks who want to keep things as they are and/or take us back to the ’50s get way too much attention. Bravo to three sign-holders for not taking it anymore and for being so cool about it.
