Andrew Cuomo Actually Acknowledges Idiot Rabbi's Gay Marriage/Hurricane Rant


Every time a natural disaster destroys entire communities, a handful of religious idiots blame it on gay people and the politicians who defend their civil rights. Hurricane Sandy is no exception.

In most cases, however, the moronic ramblings of fringe lunatics are routinely ignored by elected officials. That, however, is not the case with Hurricane Sandy.

In the aftermath of the storm, wing-nut Southern Christians claimed the hurricane was God's way of punishing the New York State Legislature for voting in favor of gay marriage. But Southern Christians aren't the only idiots who think unfortunate weather is divine punishment for defying God's word (as it's explained in thousands-of-years-old works of fiction).

Enter Rabbi Noson Leiter, the leader of the group Torah Jews for Decency, who is the latest homophobe to blame a storm on gays who occupy lower Manhattan -- which he describes as "one of the national centers for homosexuality."

Iranian Technology, Gays, Women's Suffrage All Credited With Causing Hurricane Sandy

Naked Pastor
Hurricane Sandy was caused by Iranian technology that's capable of controlling weather patterns to punish Iran's enemies and the enemies of its friends. The reason the storm hit New York so hard is because God is punishing the Empire State for defying his word and allowing gay people to get married.

But what really caused the storm was "American arrogance" -- it's just nature's way of giving the U.S. a "divine slap" for its godless policies, including allowing women to vote.

Those are just a few of the theories laid out on the blogosphere by morons who unfortunately are allowed Internet access.

Brooklyn Punk Accused of Zapping Gay Man With Stun-Gun With Hate Crime


Zapping a gay guy with a stun-gun will likely land you in the clink. Screaming hateful slurs while doing it will likely land you in the clink for a long, long time.

Case in point: 23-year-old Joseph Desmond, who is charged with a hate crime for doing exactly that.

According to the Queens District Attorney's Office, at about 8:10 p.m. on September 25, the 23-year-old victim was standing at the intersection of Gates Avenue and Fairview Avenue in Queens.

Upstate Farm Refuses to Host Lesbian Wedding

Melisa Erwin and fiancee Jenny McCarthy
Gay people in New York have had the right to get married for more than a year. Bigots have had the right to be fear-mongering assholes since the drafting of the U.S. Constitution -- but do they have the right to decide to not host a wedding because the two people getting married happen to be lesbians?

That's what a court will be forced to decide in what will be a precedent-setting decision after two women filed a discrimination claim against an upstate farm that is refusing to let them tie the knot on its property because they're lesbians.

The couple -- Melisa Erwin and Jenny McCarthy -- decided earlier this year to tie the knot. When they started searching for venues -- Google searching the words "barn wedding Albany" -- they discovered Liberty Ridge Farm in Schaghticoke, which is just north of Albany.

When they called the farm to book a date, however, they were told they couldn't get married there. The reason: They're lesbians.

Alleged Homophobic Fatso Keith Patron Charged With Hate Crime In West Village Slashing

An arrest has been made in an assault on a McDonald's patron who was slashed with a razor blade by a plus-size perp last week -- and because the suspect allegedly threw some gay slurs around during the attack, he's being charged with a hate crime, which makes the charges considerably more serious.

The suspect: 44-year-old Keith Patron.

The weigh in: 350-plus pounds.

According to authorities, about 7 p.m. Wednesday, Patron and the victim, 24-year-old Jamar McLeod, got into an argument at a McDonald's on West 3rd Street that's notorious for violent brawls.

NY Pol Knocks Gays, Whores And Politicians In Single Campaign Mailer

This is an actual campaign mailer distributed by an Upstate politician.
Whether you're gay, a politician, or a whore, some aspect of a campaign mailer (pictured above) distributed on behalf of a New York State Senate candidate probably will piss you off.

Problem is, we're not sure which group should be most offended -- the politicians for getting compared to whores, the whores for getting compared to politicians, or the gays for getting thrown in the middle.

Homophobic Cereal Arsonist Michael Leisner Drops Dead Watching Sons Play Tennis

Gay-bashing gone wrong: Michael Leisner nearly setting himself on fire while protesting gay marriage by burning a box of Honey Nut Cheerios, the "treat" of homosexuals.
Remember a few weeks ago when a Minnesota man nearly lit himself on fire while protesting gay marriage by burning a box of Honey Nut Cheerios in front of the General Mills factory? Regardless, he's dead.

Michael Leisner suffered a "massive heart attack" on Saturday while sitting in his car waiting for his two sons to finish playing tennis. He died on the spot, according to local media reports.

Leisner achieved Youtube (ahem) fame a few weeks ago when he posted a video of himself lighting the Cheerios on fire with a blowtorch.  

"One out of every eight boxes of cereal in this country is Cheerios. This is really the treat now for the homosexuals," Leisner said in the video uploaded to YouTube.

Chick-Fil-A Flap: Brooklyn Republican Invites Homophobic Chicken Peddler Dan Cathy To Open Restaurant

Assembly wannabe Russell Gallo really wants a chicken sandwich.
Not everyone's in a huff over the anti-gay comments made by homophobic chicken peddler/Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. Take GOP Assembly hopeful Russell Gallo, for example, who has now invited Cathy to open a restaurant smack-dab in the middle of Brooklyn.

Gallo wrote a letter to Cathy yesterday apologizing for comments made by mayoral hopeful/City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who urged Cathy to stay the hell out of New York City because his views on gay marriage don't jibe with the vast majority of Gothamites.

Christine Quinn Tells Chick-Fil-A to Get Out of NYC

Yesterday, we reported on the Chick-fil-A controversy that has been brewing across the country. Well, it looks like this story's heating up a bit.

As the mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Fran all demanded for the organization to get the hell out of Dodge, our urban boss, Mr. Michael R. Bloomberg, took the side of the fast-food chain that echoes its $2 million worth of donations to anti-same-sex-marriage groups. He argued that the government has no right to tell a business what to believe or interfere with its enterprise based on ideological judgment.

Enter City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. The future mayoral candidate drew her line of opposition to the chicken sandwich purveyor, stating, "Chick-fil-A is not welcome in New York City as long as the company's president welcomes continues to uphold and promote his discriminatory views."

She is referring to President Dan Cathy's remarks on his defense the 'biblical definition of marriage' and how America should stop questioning God - these statements were mentioned in yesterday's piece as well. For Ms. Quinn, the 'biblical definition of marriage' is a far cry from reality, especially since she recently wed her longtime partner, Kim M. Catullo. 

And, with that, she has started her campaign to boot this organization from NYC's restaurant ranks.
