Here Is the Anti-Gay Robocall That Almost Won Rick Santorum Ohio

As we mentioned earlier today, Rick Santorum lost Ohio last night, which was an important state in the larger Republican primary. But he almost won. And that’s not what lots of folks in the media—or the Romney campaign—were expecting weeks ago. But before he could almost win, a group called Jews and Christians Together released a robocall on behalf of the former Pennsylvania senator. If you’re wondering what in the world could possibly bring Jews and Christians together, look no further than a mutual hatred of everything gay—gay marriage, gay pride, gay men wearing dresses, gays in the military and gay Mitt Romney.

Oops, did we mention that last one in writing? No matter. It’s implied. Check out the text of the call, via Sarah Posner at Religion Dispatches:

Hi, my name is Brian Camenker; I’m a Jew from Massachusetts.

And, this is Darcy Brandon; I’m a Christian from California.

If you believe as we do that marriage and sexuality should only be between a man and a woman, please help us stop Mitt Romney. As Governor, Romney signed “Gay Youth Pride Day” declarations, promoted homosexuality in our elementary schools, and unconstitutionally ordered state officials to make Massachusetts America’s first same-sex marriage state. Romney supports open homosexuality in the military, the appointment of homosexual judges, and the ENDA law, making it illegal to fire a man who wears a dress and high heels to work, even if he’s your kid’s teacher.

When you vote tomorrow, please vote for social sanity and Rick Santorum, NOT for homosexuality and Mitt Romney. Rick Santorum is the ONLY candidate who can be trusted to uphold traditional marriage, a straight military, and the rights of American children to have both a mother and a father.

This message paid for by Jews and Christians Together.ORG and not authorized by any candidate. To get the FACTS before you vote, visit Jews and Christians Together.ORG

Unfortunately for Brian and Darcy, Mitt Romney and homosexuality have declared Ohio their new stomping grounds. The AP called it after midnight. You can listen to the robocall (with a funny video) here. Oh, and THEIR WEBSITE IS INSANE.

    Santorum, If you’re Christian, suffering is part of life bit.ly/xPrTaL

    NB: The religious demographic that most supports marriage equality is Jews. This Brian Camenker is a real outlier in the Jewish-American community.

    Most people do not believe in gay marriage. 99% of you reading this did not believe in such a crazy thing years ago. Don’t pretend otherwise.

    Neither did 99% of the people you know, and your parents and ancestors too.

    Please don’t try to bulldoze, bully, and intimidate perfectly honest people into keeping their mouths shut regarding their opposition to gay marriage (or “civil unions”). Some gays are the most intolerant, close-minded, anti-free speech people around. As if suddenly because gays scream and yell for gay marriage we are all supposed to change our life-long views on the matter.

    People have a right to oppose gay marriage. Stop your bullying and hysterics.

    You want to read what a flip-flopper Romney is, I suggest the following great site: amycontrada.com. She is the author of Mitt Romney’s Deception, a fine book.

    By the way, should a bi-sexual be able to marry one person of each gender? And don’t think we don’t know the truth: many “gays” are bi-sexual. So much for their not having a “choice.”

    Either they don’t like web developers or every web developer in the world doesn’t like them. What a bland website.

    I got the same anti-gay robocall in Illinois, before our primary. I was so shocked that I called my friends to tell them about it. They got the same call a day or so later.

    This is a response to Pat.

    “Most people do not believe in gay marriage. 99% of you reading this did not believe in such a crazy thing years ago. Don’t pretend otherwise.”

    You are ignorant of the rapidity with which public opinion has swayed. Perhaps you are living in a bubble, socializing only with people who share your hostile views.

    “Please don’t try to bulldoze, bully, and intimidate perfectly honest people into keeping their mouths shut regarding their opposition to gay marriage (or “civil unions”).”

    There is only facts and righteous indignation. The bullied are finally bashing back and you don’t like it. It’s called self-defense.

    “Some gays are the most intolerant, close-minded, anti-free speech people around.”

    You talk about being honest.

    Well be honest about this.

    Gays are not trying to limit the free speech of others.

    However, they ARE refusing to dignity intellectual dishonesty and flat out lies being said about them, and you cite an author who, here in Massachusetts, is a laughing stock, because of her outrageous antics in intellectual dishonesty.

    Nobody should be expected to sit quiet while horrible things are said about them. You just don’t like people using THEIR freedom of speech to respond to your nonsense.

    “As if suddenly because gays scream and yell for gay marriage we are all supposed to change our life-long views on the matter.”

    Yes, again, condescend, painting gay people as puerile, as spoiled children.

    Anybody in our shoes would be angry, and would insist that this country live up to its promise of equality under the protection of the United States Constitution.

    “People have a right to oppose gay marriage. Stop your bullying and hysterics.”

    The bullies are those who would usurp or prohibit the civil liberties of their countrymen, so stop playing the victim. You are NOT the victim.

    “You want to read what a flip-flopper Romney is, I suggest the following great site: amycontrada.com. She is the author of Mitt Romney’s Deception, a fine book.”

    Ms. Contrada is the aforementioned author to which I referred.

    “By the way, should a bi-sexual be able to marry one person of each gender? And don’t think we don’t know the truth: many ‘gays’ are bi-sexual. So much for their not having a ‘choice.’”

    Gays are not bisexuals.

    BISEXUALS are bisexuals.

    I theorize that the reason many people, like you, believe gays DO have a choice in regards to their sexual attractions and choice of gender partners, is that YOU YOURSELVES have bisexual tendencies and you project that bisexuality on to your gay targets.

    No, Pat. You’re wrong across the board.

    As usual, the more rabid anti-gay arguments can be shot down with ease, point by point.

    Good day.
