The Family Coalition Party - Misogynists and Bigots

Why is it that whenever I see the word "Family" in a political party's name, it means that a group of crazy religious bigoted asshats got together and think they know best? Take, for example, a party that I've seen signs for in our provincial election here in Ontario, the Family Coalition Party.

Here's how they describe themselves:
The Family Coalition Party is Ontario's only pro-Life, pro-family political party, and the only provincial party that endorses the principles of the Preamble to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the Canadian Constitution:
"Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law..."
That's right, the only party that's "pro-family". All those other parties just think family sucks and is a quaint outdated concept. Especially us godless heathen-type folks - we're anti-family.

With respect to the no-abortion-keep-them-feminists-down-misogynist vibe, I tend to agree with the late, great Bill Hicks who said, "You're so're so pro-life...well, what does that make me? If you're so pro-life...don't block med clinics, ok? Lock arms and block cemeteries. Let's see how fuckin' committed you are to this premise."

Of course they're anti-gay. Of course they are. If you're pro-family, you have to be anti-gay because as we all know, no gay person has ever been in a loving family or committed relationship. There are for sure no gay people in the Republican Jon Stewart said, "just dudes who like to fuck other dudes." Naturally, if you have to own just one book, make it the Bible, because there's nothing gay in the Bible, at all. AT ALL. Admittedly, most of the time gayness is mentioned in the Bible, it's to say that them queers should be put to death.

Obviously they're against the HPV vaccine for girls. As we all know, using any form of contraception makes young people crazy with the pimp juice and after that it's just teen pregnancy and prostitution. A sordid array of drugs and nudity that devolve our society into some sort of Mad Max world is sure to follow. Don't you non-religious people see? We have to use the fear of getting cancer to keep our young girls' legs together. That and maybe a promise ring to her dad...because that's not creepy at all. AT ALL.

I'll be voting tomorrow, and you can be sure that it won't be for the FCP candidate. I have my own values, and they have nothing to do with bronze-age thinking, misogyny, or pseudo-intimidation. What a bunch of doofuses.

We have the same thing here with the Oregon Citizens Alliance. They are of course "Pro-Family" yet don't want to allow gays to get married (they successfully pushed through a "Protection of Marriage" ballot measure a few years ago that added language to our state's constitution that defined marriage as between a man and a woman only). Our state legislature recently passed a domestic partnership bill in order to give gay families as many legal rights as they could without being able to legally marry. Guess who is fighting to get this law overturned? You guessed it, the OCA and other bigot groups. These supposedly "pro-family" groups like to pick and choose just which families they support.

By the way, has your marriage fallen apart yet now that you guys have gay marriage up there? That's what they'd have us all believe down here.

Oddly, my marriage is ok considering all the homosexual activity in this Satan's Nest of a country. You'd think society would have crumbled by now, wouldn't you?

Mike, that's weird that your marriage is doing so well in spite of rampant homosexuality in your area. I live right down the street and I've got gay people constantly making out in my living room, moaning loadly whenever I try to talk to my wife and occasionally trying to burn my wedding photos when I'm not looking. Satan's nest indeed. ;-)

I had never heard of the FCP until I saw the signs this election. As soon as I did, I went online thinking to myself "I'll bet they are a but of bigotted religioous wackos". It's almost like clockwork, just like how any country that calls itself the "democratic republic of" is guaranteed to be basically a dictatorship.

Anyway, the FCP site is a piece of work. A nice though bland homepage, but with links to news articles that quickly degenerate into the typical gay bashing. The news pages are all hosted by a "Family-friendly" ISP that hosts a page of "family issues"-related "news" pieces, ie. columns from worldnetdaily.

Doucebags like these are the biggest reason I'm fearful of the MMP system wrt the referendum. One of the strengths of MMP is that it allows fledgling parties to get a bit of a foothold - under MMP, the Green party will likely get a few seats, and that's a good thing. However, it also means that there's a chance the FCP will get a seat. In that case, I'd vote for the marijuana party just to piss them off.

I know, just the other day I was eating a hamburger in my kitchen and two gay dudes just touched dicks right in front of my face. It was so unnerving.

And on that FCP site, didn't the family picture remind you of the Phelps family of the crazy Westborough Baptist Church? Crazy bastards.
