Dear Mormons who are Homophobic,

Dear Homophobes,

You have every right to believe whatever you like because this is America and I support your freedom of speech. But you aren't just exercising your First Amendment right, you are attempting to take rights away from other citizens, citizens that pay their taxes and abide by the laws. What makes you above the law in your attempts to change the Constitution for your own religious agenda?

A local news channel in Utah did a report on the commercial I shot against Proposition 8. I couldn't be more proud that somehow this ad has put the extremists on the defense and exposed them for what they are.

Sorry homophobes, gays have been around since the beginning of time and we're not going anywhere. We are here, we are queer and we are getting stronger everyday.

p.s. I'm not slamming all Mormons but I am targeting those that are trying to discriminate against anyone for their gender, race and sexual orientation.

p.p.s. In this blog post, I really just wanted to write "FUCK YOU!" like 10,000 times but I didn't. Aren't you proud of me?

Thank you so much Bridget!
I live in Salt Lake City and saw this news report and thought, "Fuck Yeah!" The Mormon Church has absolutely no place to say when others are being disrespectful and lacking courtesy, when that is all they do if something doesn't go their way. I remember back in May when equal marriage was passed they felt it necessary to issue a statement on how "unfortunate" this ruling was.
So thank you for sticking up for equality and bringing the truth to people. I'm so glad this was on the local Utah news!

Bridget you are my hero!!! I can't beleive those homophobic dickmunchers are trying to play the victim card because of you're ad, calling it a "vicious attack". Pft. They need to suck it up and quit bitching. You're commercial is awesome and the world is less sucktastic because you are in it.

"Particularly vicious!" Go Bridget!

Natazzz said...

Oh wow. I think it's great your ad made the news.

Let's hope people are less retarded and prejudiced than I fear.

Polly said...

Dear Bridget, your ad is awesome, and tells it like it is. Fundamentalists seem to think that they can dictate how the rest of us live our lives and discriminate against anyone they don't like, but the minute anyone stands up for themselves against blatant discrimination, the fundamentalists claim that they are the ones under attack. It's sickening. I hope everyone in California votes no to proposition 8 today.

You said it Bridget!

It annoys/saddens me greatly when Christianity is given a bad name just because of the Mormons slash other groups of Christians who exercise discrimination and hate. [rage]

The comeback statement on the Latter day saints' part made me laugh.

Jessica said...

I am very proud of you for not filling your blog with the words 'Fuck You!' a million times. It takes a lot to hold back like that Bridget. =]

Lest the Americans forget-- isn't the phrase "all men are created equal" the core foundation of your government.

C'mon,the rest of the world is watching you.

I can't believe how petty and ignorant they are... I'm so proud to be able to say that you represent me.

Preach it sista!

You should be SO proud! Good for you that they are upset. Boo-freakin-hoo.

The crazy shit in their ads was way out of line but that's okay because they are "protecting" marriage.

(I keep wondering when they are going to go after the drunken hets in Vegas if they want to protect marriage so badly.)

For over a day now...since I read about how ABC has gutted Grey's of its gayness...as well as the crap being posted at some message boards because All My Children has been showing Bianca kissing an actual girl...and then add to that my feelings on Prop 8...I have been basically singing the main chorus of your hit song "Fuck you" non-stop...so I can well understand you wanting to write that numerous times here on your blog. I think it suits the circumstances quite well.

Seriously are these people fucking kidding me... Bridge you are much nice than I would have been I would have done the FUCK YOU in big bold letters.

Don't these fucking idiots understand that because of them there is gay bashing and gay teen suicide... parents fear that their children might be gay because of the intolerance in the world and to think that it is a religious sect condoning, this type of injustice to a degree...

It sickens me... My Grandmother who was 92 would have told them to go stick their homophobic bullshit up their asses...

so in honor of her FUCK ALL the homophobes out there. We're gay, proud and nothing you can say or do can change that cause we grow stronger everyday.

I can't stand watching all of this Prop 8 stuff... and in other states, too. I live in Canada, where, even though I have a (retarded) Conservative government, I am fortunate enough to have the right to get married in pretty much any province or territory. What's even worse is I was having a conversation with a fellow member of 'the family' and he doesn't believe that getting married is a basic human right. I want to punch him in the fucking face. AHH. Anyway. Keep kicking ass, Bridget. Do what you do best - be loud, proud and make people feel uncomfortable! Obviously you're being heard.
