Gay-Mafia Strikes Again: Gay Alabama Legislator Threatens to ‘Out’ Her Colleagues

So, Pat Todd is such a paragon of virtue that she would never cheat on her partner, but her morality seems to end there. She’s definitely not above out and out extortion if other politicians, citing family values, don’t back off the gay marriage issue. Oh no… I’d be careful if I were her and she should make sure that her info and sources are correct or she will get thwacked with a slander suit and rightfully so. She’s justifying exposing others in public because she doesn’t sleep around, but taking the moral high ground here doesn’t make what she is doing right and that high ground she is standing on resembles a cliff. Of course, she hasn’t named names – yet. But the threat was implicit – back off gay marriage or be exposed.

From The Huffington Post:

WASHINGTON — Alabama’s only openly gay legislator is putting her anti-gay colleagues on notice: If they keep espousing family values rhetoric as a reason to oppose marriage equality, she’ll start making their marital infidelities public.

“I will not stand by and allow legislators to talk about ‘family values’ when they have affairs, and I know of many who are and have,” wrote state Rep. Patricia Todd (D) on Facebook over the weekend, as reported by the TimesDaily in Alabama. “I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet out.”

Todd’s post came after a federal judge ruled Friday that Alabama’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. She told The Huffington Post that she decided to issue her threat after reading some of the anti-gay rhetoric coming from certain elected officials in the state.

“If certain people come out and start espousing this rhetoric about family values, then I will say, ‘Let’s talk about family values, because here’s what I heard.’ I don’t have direct knowledge, because obviously I’m not the other person involved in the affair. But one thing you would never hear about me is that I ever cheated on a partner or had an affair,” said Todd.

“One thing I’m pretty consistent on is I do not like hypocrites,” she added. “If you can explain your position and you hold yourself to the same standard you want to hold me to, then fine. But you cannot go out there and smear my community by condemning us and somehow making us feel less than, and expect me to be quiet.”

On Sunday night, U.S. District Court Judge Callie Granade issued a two-week stay on her ruling, meaning that same-sex couples will have to wait a bit longer to wed. Her order gives the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals until Feb. 9 to decide whether to continue the delay. Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange (R) said he would have preferred a stay until the spring or summer, when the Supreme Court is set to rule on the constitutionality of marriage equality nationwide.

If Granade’s ruling is upheld, Alabama will be the 37th state to legalize marriage equality.

Pat’s community smears itself repeatedly, so that is a flawed argument on her part. You can believe that same-sex marriage is morally wrong even if you are a sinner. We all are. Infidelity is wrong and if these people are engaged in those acts, I have little pity for them. But don’t justify gay rights based on the actions of others when all you need to see is right there in the mirror. It’s like a little kid saying Joey did it, so I can too. There’s plenty of glass houses to go around here. My humble opinion is just because it has been ruled as okay and legal in 36, soon to be 37, states doesn’t make it right. But then again, I’m a Christian and believe in the Bible. Too bad Pat can’t come after me. She reserves that for her colleagues and friends evidently.
