Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish!

Can you believe that someone has actually created a website called "Boycott Houston" that is calling for "Christians" across Texas to boycott the city of Houston because we elected a gay mayor and are allowing Planned Parenthood to build one of their largest clinics ever!?

It is the most ridiculous, pitiful thing I have ever seen!

First of all, here's the "about us" quip from their website:

"Do you want a Texas version of San Francisco? Neither do we!Do you want Texas to be the abortion capital of America? Neither do we!Houston has elected an openly homosexual mayor and built the largest abortion clinic in the United States and you can do something about it!
While you may or may not be a resident of Houston and eligible to vote for mayor, you can vote with your dollar.
This is why we are calling on Christians everywhere to boycott the city of Houston.
We want to impose “economic sanctions” on Houston, Texas!
Please make your voice heard and join our cause. By signing the online petition you send Houston a message; That you are tired of babies being
murdered and the radical homosexual agenda being shoved down the throat of normal society."

It's so ridiculous on so many levels! I think my favorite part is on their "missions" page, where they declare:

"While not everyone in Houston is responsible for voting for a homosexual mayor or for building a Planned Parenthood version of Auschwitz, a boycott is the best way, and in many cases the only way for those not living in Houston to have a positive effect for righteousness in that city. Those in Houston who dare to call themselves ”Christians” are largely at fault for allowing these two abominations to happen. If everyone who calls on the name of Christ had gone out and voted against the newly elected mayor, she would have been defeated in a landslide. "

Really?! Are you people really so deluded that you think you have the numbers to back this up?! Houston is a VERY international city! I'm pretty sure if you totalled up the muslims, hindus, buddhists, jews, agnostics, atheists, wiccans, and undeclareds, not to mention the number of Christian GLBTQ citizens who don't share your narrow view of Christianity, you would find that we can and did outnumber your self-righteous asses! Screw your narrow view of "normal" society!

Oh, and the whole thing is the brainchild of some asshat preacher from Amarillo! Double WTF? It's clear across the state from Houston- why do you even fucking care?

And as for your boycott- I've seen the way your "Christian Masses" fleece our coffers when you travel on your "pilgrammages"! You stay 4 to a room at Motel 6, take all your meals at Denny's, drink iced tea, stiff the waitress, and don't shop or visit museums or otherwise leave your money behind because you spend the whole weekend in "bible study"! I'm pretty sure our economy is not gonna crumble, thankyouverymuch!
So, Christian Wrong, here is one drag queen who is decidedly NOT going to support your boycott!
So far there are like 3 comments on your blog- I'm pretty sure this post will get more than that!

Religious wingnut whackjob zealot asshats.
That about covers it without going into NSFW language!

Wow. I don't know if this is more sad or more scary!! I have a feeling Houston will survive the boycott.

It makes me so mad to read about that. They are usually the same people that think my interracial marriage is a sin. Seriously I've had people tell me that.

Let's start a travel campaign highlighting Houston as the perfect destination for the LGBT community! All those DINKS (double income no kids) have the power of the dollar - so let the so called "Christians" boycott all they want.

Yea, let us know how that boycott works.

I really like the idea of Houston being a Texas version of San Francisco (named, interestingly, for a Christian saint).

"Planned Parenthood version of Auschwitz?" ::rolling eyes:: PP is a great organization that keeps a lot of people safe.

I don't think they're going to get very far with their silly little boycott. XOXO

That is quite possibly the silliest boycott I have heard in recent history. What sad little person.
