Tomorrow, there’s a gay pride parade through downtown Cincinnati. If you’re self-appointed state morality czar/President of Citizens for Community Values Phil Burress, then you, of course, have to freak the hell out:
"We think its not right for them to invade the Fourth of July, and we’re trying to warn people that if they do go downtown they may be exposed to some deviant behavior," Phil Burress, president of Citizens for Community Values. "Everything from sex in the streets to topless women."
Phil Burress began his morality crusade after grappling with his own porn addiction (no […]Full Story... →
It was just last month that christofascist asshat Phil Burress, after being dissed by McCain, came out publicly saying: “We don’t like him and he doesn’t like us.”
How quickly things change.
The recent meeting between McCain and a group of Ohio’s leading homophobes and women-haters – including Burress – seems to have brought Phil over to McCain’s side.
Not only is he saying nice things about McCain now- but he is publicly attacking Obama.
According to Phil, John McCain left the meeting “a changed man.” “His mind can be changed if you have the facts,” said […]Full Story... →
Oh MAN is this great news!
The Ohio Republican Party is actually considering running Stephanie McCloud – daughter of whackjob, christofascist, former-porn-addict Phil Burress – for AG.
I knew they were getting close to the bottom of the AG candidate barrel – but now it looks like they’ve abondoned the barrel all together and are now hunting around in the dirt for any crumbs they can find.Full Story... →
The enquirer ran a story this morning about Phil and his angry band of nutjobs (Citizens for Community Values) sending a letter/petition to Cinci’s CityBeat asking them to “eliminate the adult services category” of advertising.
If you haven’t seen it, CityBeat is a weekly paper similiar to The Other Paper in Columbus or the Cleveleand Free Times. And if you’ve ever read any of these […]Full Story... →
I figured after he won the nomination, John McCain would shift his focus to the general election instead of still continuing to try to convince all of his party’s wingnuts that he is conservative enough to be their candidate.
I guess I was wrong.
Today McCain was in New Orleans meeting with the Council for National Policy (CNP)- a super-secret, invitation-only social conservative group founded by the king of all wingnuts Tim LaHaye (author of the Left Behind series of apocalyptic fiction).
In attendance was Ohio’s own Phil Burress- the former porn-addict turned anti-gay activist who is currently president […]Full Story... →
ProgressOhio is taking votes for Ohio’s Grinch of the Year- so head over and cast your vote.
My personal choice is Phil Burress– a guy with all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile…
PHIL BURRESS: A number of nominations poured in for Citizens For Community Values leader and self-admitted porn-addict Phil Burress for his anti-porn crusade. He who led the passage of 2004’s Gay Marriage Amendment sidetracked Ohio’s political landscape from talking about jobs, education and healthcare ? and instead turned it into a debate on how to impose Phil Burress’ morality on the rest of Ohio’s […]Full Story... →
I really wanted to call out Ted Strickland after I read the first few paragraphs of this AP article posted today on Ohio.com.
According to the article, our governor recently signed an executive order that banned discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the (government) workplace.
The order forbid state agencies from offering a “rate of compensation” that was different for gay and straight employees. Which is, in my opinion, a pretty damn good idea.
Unfortunately, the concept of “rate of compensation” only applied to salary and did not include benefits.
Which, again in my opinion, […]Full Story... →
Not content with simply giving Mike Huckabee his endorsement, Phil Burress (citizens for community values) and his wingnut pals in southern Ohio are hosting a fundraiser next week for the Former Arkansas Governor in Mason Ohio.
One of the events will be held at Mars Hill Academy a private, Classical Christian School with the following mission:
To glorify God by affirming God?s place at the center of all we think, say, and do, and thus, we affirm the God-centered nature of all creation.
According to the school’s website, “Every class is taught from the perspective of a […]Full Story... →
Not to be outdone by Rudy and his endorsement by Pat Robertson, Mike Huckabee’s campaign announced a bunch of endorsements from “the Faith Community” today including one from Ohio’s own Phil Burress, President of Citizens for Community Values.
And if Huckabee’s people were looking for some support from other crazy wingnuts like Robertson then they certainly scored big with the Burress endorsement.
Just the kind of guy you want on your list of endorsees if […]Full Story... →
I generally don’t agree with the liberal-bashing action over at The Politically Incorrect Gazette, but the person they honor in this year’s Steaming Load of the Year post is a choice I can really support.
That’s because it’s our favorite christfascist asshat Phil Burress!
According to PIG…
Phil Burress is a man with a plan and, when he?s finished, the Buckeye State will be a Cross Cult theocracy under his direct control. Under Ayatollah Phil, Ohio will be indistinguishable from Afghanistan under the Taliban, Iran under Phil?s hero, Ayatollah Khomeini, or the Sandbox with its religious gestapo.
Congrats […]Full Story... →
From yesterday’s Cinci Enquirer blog:
Two women convicted of falsifying election petitions to meet quotas for bonuses were put on probation and ordered to do 200 hours of community service, but a judge said they were minor players in a much larger ?mean-spirited campaign.?
Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman reiterated Monday what he said last month when Lois Mingo and Precilla Ward pleaded guilty to charges of election falsification: that State Rep. Tom Brinkman, who headed up the petition drive for the unsuccessful effort last year to repeal the city?s gay rights ordinance, should be charged.
