I had fleeting memory of Cindy McCain and Megan McCain being in an ad for the gay rights group NOH8 four years ago but this ad has burned an image in the mind of Mark Noonan at Blogs4Victory. Noonan an intractable Catholic conservative who is so concerned with his own immortal Soul that he would be willing to disenfranchise millions of Americans, deny millions more their civil rights and even deny health care options to every woman in America who would seek any form of birth control writes:

“I remember a while back ago when I saw a picture of Cindy and Meghan McCain made up in the “NoH8″ logo and it immediately occurred to me just how absolutely disgusting it was – while “NoH8″ had been around for a while, it suddenly struck me what it really meant – what the liberal fascists, that is, meant by using it: that anyone who disagrees with them is a hate-filled bigot, unfit for decent company. It told me, point blank, that by the mere fact of being a Catholic in accord with the Magisterium, I was the modern version of Bull Connor. Plenty of Republicans fell for it – after all, it was just about not hating, right? Perhaps not. Maybe the whole purpose of “NoH8″ was to get people to hate the “other” – in this case, anyone who disagreed with same-sex marriage?”

This is just the beginning of a post (which should be read in full to understand the lunacy of the right) that exposes what is wrong with the mainstream religious conservative in America. In one way he wants special treatment for himself and his beliefs despite not holding these beliefs all his life and not ever being challenged or discriminated against because of them. This is in stark contrast with countless black Americans, women and LGBTQ persons who have given their lives in their struggle for equality with self proclaiming religious white men.

Noonan, a Catholic is now on the same side of history as those who were in the Ku Klux Klan in their heyday at the onset of the Roaring Twenties. The similarities between the rhetoric, bigotry and desire for unearned privilege is almost without divergence. He makes a point that any conservative that disagrees with a Liberal who feels that LGBTQ Americans deserve the same equal treatment under the law as he does as a citizen will be portrayed as a bigot or worse, is a non-starter. Anyone who does this and stands on their religion as the proof and reason IS a bigot. It is the height of hubris that Mark Edward Noonan feels that his Catholic beliefs should strip the rights of anyone. This is the definition of bigotry; that one’s beliefs are a legitimate reason to hate.

This is nothing new coming from Noonan or from conservatives in America panicked that their unearned privilege has been exposed and that their numbers are dwindling. It is no wonder that he can bear none of my comments at his site no matter how civil or fact filled. He stands on his faith which he holds more dear than the rule power of the Constitution which conservatives swear they want America to return. This is yet another paradox for those who think like Noonan. It is not enough for him that he lives in a nation that is the most free in the world (despite NSA spying and runaway technological snooping by corporations) he and his brethren must rule; especially if it is at the expense of those who do not share his values.
