Word: Oxendine attacked by 'homosexual activists,' could use your $$$ to fight teh gayz
'These homosexual activists join a long and growing list of those on the radical Left who are, by their very attack, acknowledging ... who they are afraid of'
On Oct. 15, GOP gubernatorial candidate John Oxendine emailed supporters to alert them to a "vicious attack" by "homosexual activists" at local gay weekly Southern Voice regarding his defense of marriage between a man and a woman. He asked supporters to help him fight the "gay lobby" — by donating money, of course.
"The radical homosexual activists over at Southern Voice have launched a vicious attack on me — by name — for my defense of traditional marriage in America. These homosexual activists join a long and growing list of those on the radical Left who are, by their very attack, acknowledging who the true conservative is in this campaign and who they are afraid of."
— Oxendine, in an Oct. 15 email to campaign supporters.
__"Those who are engaged in homosexual behavior are people—who need love and forgiveness, and who need to understand the love of God."
— Oxendine, in an Oct. 9 email to supporters.
"So sacred is your marriage that when your baby Jake is born, you immediately put him in a starring role in one of your campaign ad commercials? No way is that exploiting the family, right?"
— SoVo reporter Dyana Bagby in the Oct. 12 blog post that raised Oxendine's ire.
"Marriage has not, in fact, 'always been' between 'a man and a woman' — for most of the period of the Old Testament, from which Oxendine and his brethren like to quote a certain passage from Leviticus to condemn us, marriage was between a man and several women."
