The most unfortunate anti-gay logo and slogan in the history of politics

In one of the most unfortunate moves in American politics since Republicans kept referring to the Tea Party “teabagging,” the anti-gay Family Research Council, which has been officially designated a “hate group,” has come up with a rather odd campaign to fight the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down DOMA yesterday.

(Big hat tip to Chris Geidner who first tweeted the logo.)

FRC’s anti-gay campaign is titled “Call 2 Fall.”  (Note the number “2”, done Internet-style – rather than being written out “two” – to attract the younguns.)

The anti-gay campaign’s slogan is “On our knees for America.”

And it’s accompanied by a logo that appears to be a man performing oral sex.

frc-on-our-knees-gay-marriageI’m in too.

Even their little logo they use for the tabs on your Web browser (in the business we call this a favicon) shows the man on his knees:

You might recall the first time the religious right tried to be “cool” by adopting the youthy Internet-style for the name of an anti-gay campaign.  It was called 2M4M – meaning, “two million for marriage.” Unfortunately, they found out a little too late that 2M4M is actually Internet shorthand for a gay couple looking for a  three-way.

So, first here’s our friend Andy Cobb’s (of Second City fame) video about the unfortunate “teabagging” incident.  Then, the second video, is Andy’s follow-up video about 2M4M.  Seriously, do yourself a favor and watch both videos – they’re hilarious:

And now the second video about 2M4M:

Update: Chris has now posted on this as well.

    I find it hilarious and bizarre that some people still think such childish nitpicking is required.

  15. DP2010 says:

    People have more than one reason to be on their knees. Oral sex isn’t of such dominating importance to everyone’s life that there should never be any other reason to make a logo with a man on his knees.

    No true Scotsman

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigation, search

    For the practice of wearing a kilt without undergarments, see True Scotsman.

    No true Scotsman is an informal fallacy, an ad hoc attempt to retain an unreasoned assertion.[1] When faced with a counterexample to a universal claim, rather than denying the counterexample or rejecting the original universal claim, this fallacy modifies the subject of the assertion to exclude the specific case or others like it by rhetoric, without reference to any specific objective rule.Contents [hide]

    The use of the term was advanced by British philosopher Antony Flew:

    Imagine Hamish McDonald, a Scotsman, sitting down with his Glasgow Morning Herald and seeing an article about how the “Brighton Sex Maniac Strikes Again”. Hamish is shocked and declares that “No Scotsman would do such a thing”. The next day he sits down to read his Glasgow Morning Herald again; and, this time, finds an article about an Aberdeen man whose brutal actions make the Brighton sex maniac seem almost gentlemanly. This fact shows that Hamish was wrong in his opinion but is he going to admit this? Not likely. This time he says, “No true Scotsman would do such a thing”.[2]

    When the statement “all A are B” is qualified like this to exclude those A which are not B, this is a form of begging the question; the conclusion is assumed by the definition of “true A”.

    Examples[edit]

    A simple rendition of the fallacy would be:[3]

    Person A: “No Scotsman puts sugar on his porridge.”Person B: “I am Scottish, and I put sugar on my porridge.”Person A: “Then you are not a true Scotsman.”

    An example of a political application of the fallacy could be in asserting that “no democracy starts a war”, then distinguishing between mature or “true” democracies, which never start wars, and “emerging democracies”, which may start them.[4] At issue is whether or not something labelled as an “emerging democracy” is actually a democracy or something in a different conceptual category.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_true_Scotsman
    When you read in the news about “Muslim” terrorists engaging in terrorism, you don’t sit there and say, “well, they aren’t true Muslims” do you? Of course you don’t.

  20. Cthulhu0818 says:

    They say they loathe it, but they think about it more than gay people do.

  21. Cthulhu0818 says:

    Because violence against gays is Jesus’s way, right?

  22. Cthulhu0818 says:

    Well, that and sex with animals, right, Frothy Santorum?

  23. Cthulhu0818 says:

    And you’re clueless. And that’s as funny as that unfortunate logo.

  24. Cthulhu0818 says:

    The jokes are you fundy anti gay homophobes. And clearly, you’re so nose deep in your bibble you don’t see why it’s hysterical, even to straight people.

  25. Rikki Raccoon says:

    “Or a straight person with a sense of humor.”

    Indeed. And a subversive soul. :)

  26. Rikki Raccoon says:

    Yep, if they hired an outside firm rather than trying to do all of this themselves, ain’t no way this wasn’t deliberate.

  27. Houndentenor says:

    Or a straight person with a sense of humor. But I agree that someone knew how funny this is and at least approved it. I did meet some conservatives who worked in ad agency art departments but they tended to be of the libertarian rather than the theocon variety.

  28. Rikki Raccoon says:

    If it was done by an outside professional ad agency, I very much doubt the humor, given how very blatant it is, was unintentional. These people know what they’re doing. The person given the task of developing the ad campaign was probably gay and pissed. In which case, good for them. :)

  29. Rikki Raccoon says:

    Yes, of course it’s a joke. The whole point is that these conservative and religious groups repeatedly *accidentally* use phrasing and imagery that others recognize as having established, raunchy sexual meanings. Watch the two videos. “Teabagging,” which was intended to reference/call to mind the Boston Tea Party, *does* mean putting one’s testicles in another’s mouth, to huge swathes of people. “2M4M,” which was intended to be a super-cool-and-hip abbreviation standing for “Two Million For Marriage,” *does* mean “gay male couple seeks third male for threesome,” to even larger swathes of people. And taken as a whole, this logo and slogan *scream* “bawdy sex joke.” Run it past any graphic design professional who *hasn’t* been hiding under a giant, prude rock for the last 20 years and see what they think.

    No one’s suggesting that they did it on purpose (although if they have some kind of mole in their marketing/graphic design department who *did* do it on purpose, that’d be *awesome*), but that’s the point. They’re *painfully* out-of-touch with the youth and Internet-savvy demographics they’re trying to reach, and they embarrass themselves over and over and over. Pathetic, but *wildly* funny.

    That is some serious narcissism.

  33. Ian Harac says:

    One quibble.. there’s no such thing as an “official”, as in, “declared so by the government”, hate group. The SPLC, and probably a lot of other private organizations, have declared the FRC to be a hate group, but the term has no legal meaning, i.e., the FRC is still granted tax exemptions as a non-profit organization, etc. The FRC can declare the SPLC a “hate group”, and it means just as much. Sorry to nitpick, but there’s a substantial myth that the government can decide a group is a “hate group” and that this will have some meaning or purpose. (The FBI does investigate hate groups if there’s a likelihood of violent action, but there’s no official “list” that is made available to the public, AFAIAK.)

  35. Scott W. Bell says:

    Wendy, I’m deeply offended that any one would think that an oral sex joke would be my first thought…far from it!

  36. SLC says:

    Is that a joke? If not, that’s particularly paranoid. If you look on the FRC’s website, it is clearly a depiction of someone praying. I think they are overestimating the FRC’s sense of irony or humor if they really think this is depicting oral sex. Frankly, however much the FRC may not be a friend of the gay community, this seems like attributing specious intentions to them. Unless this quote, taken from their website, is both a simultaneous call to prayer and to personally engage in oral sex, which seems unlikely: “I will answer God’s call to fall on my knees in humility and seek His face in repentance so that He might forgive my sins and heal our land.” I don’t like FRC’s tune, but I’m pretty sure this post is seeing things that aren’t there.

    The issue is NOT the label, “Christian”.

    The issue is about the actions of a person who calls him/herself a “Christian”.

    I could not care less about the label. Paul invented it and Jesus did not.

  46. UncleBucky says:

    Why don’t YOU TELL ME about that?

    I am not going to have an argument with you. But if you think this is important, just go ahead and plop the text and then explain it.

    I so hate it when people say “look it up”.

    Dang!

  47. Jafafa Hots says:

    You didn’t look up “no true scotsman.”

  48. Andybud says:

    I’m pretty sure you don’t have to be gay to enjoy oral sex. Perhaps if you tried either giving it or receiving it, you’d lighten up a bit.

  49. Ryan Searfoss says:

    Not a self-aware bone in the body of any neo-conservative in this country. Tea-baggers, anyone?

  50. BlueIdaho says:

    I’m Episcopalian and I have never prayed that way. On the other hand there have been a few times when I have assumed that position. :-)

  51. John (not McCain) says:

    Does Jesus spit or swallow?

  52. nicho says:

    How do you know they’re praying? That’s your assumption. I’ve never seen anyone pray like that. KKKrisitans usually stand up tall and wave their arms in the air to make sure everyone sees them — in direct violation of Jesus’ very specific orders not to do that.

  53. ArthurH says:

    This is the funniest faux pas I’ve seen by the so-called superreligionists since one argued you couldn’t make women priests because priests are supposed to look like Jesus only to be peppered with endless variations of jokes about how most Catholic priests mostly closely resemble Buddha.

  54. JoeNCA says:

    Or the makers of the graphic had a Freudian slip.

  55. JoeNCA says:

    As a Protestant I must agree. My sister converted to Catholicism and the mass at her wedding was the most exercise I ever had in a church!

  56. DJK says:

    She’s just pissed that bigotry is losing in the US.

  57. James Knauer says:

    LIghten up, Wendy.

  58. Wendy says:

    don’t U dare use a graphic of a person on their knees praying! Gays will turn it into an oral sex joke…perverts..

  59. Houndentenor says:

    I assumed (perhaps wrongly) that the work was done by an ad agency or PR firm.

  60. samizdat says:

    These religionist pearl-clutchers do provide the most inadvertently humorous fodder for derision, don’t they?

    Hmmm, I think they need to show the person in the chair enjoying the nice little Fishtian c***sucker’s oral ministrations. More authentico that way.

  61. dcinsider says:

    if you work in the art department for FRC and are gay, someone needs to take you out back and beat the crap out of you.

  62. leliorisen says:

    Let’s see…the FRC logo shows them on their knees, and the pitch asks for money. In Nevada this may be legal, but since when are prostitutes given tax-free status?

  63. leliorisen says:

    Maybe Mr. Bachmann could explain.

  64. UncleBucky says:

    Oh, let me clarify. When I talk about the actions that describe a “Christan” I typically mean the things that Jesus said to do, not all the dogma, ritual and nonsense that has been applied to his words by others, especially Paul, Church Fathers, et al. OK?

  65. leliorisen says:

    John, my friend, you are missing the point. Organization’s like FRC are usually run by men that pray for oral sex….when nobody is around to see it, of course.

  66. UncleBucky says:

    If you did that and you encouraged others to do the same, I would have drinks with you. I would even buy the first round!

  67. UncleBucky says:

    Bingo! And I call that sort of creature a “christianIST”.

    Yet, a person could be any other faith, even an agnostic or atheist and still behave exactly as Jesus had told us to (not to mention other wise people such as Buddha, Rumi, etc.)

  68. UncleBucky says:

    Christian is what?

    If I call myself a “Christian” but then I don’t DO what it involves, I am no such thing.

    That is the purpose of the term “christianIST”. A christianIST uses the label “Christian” but either does not do the work that Jesus told us to do or a christianIST does DAMAGE to the message of Jesus.

    I don’t care whether Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian, United Church of Christ, yada yada yada is the true church or not. That’s all Faith-y dogma stuff. The divisions are caused by dogmatic disagreements or social antagonisms.

    I care about actions, Jafafa. A Muslim can act better than a so-called “Christian” IMHO.

    Personally, I don’t belong to any Christian church anymore. They annoy me generally in that they hold more faith and less actions (not all, of course, there are some marvellous assemblies, parishes and groups. But the bad boys in dresses and the bad ministers with their hands down somebody else’s pants whilst calling me names for whom I love have dropped the other shoe for me.

    Nip into Beatitudes, Parables, the Lord’s Prayer (up to but not incl. the “doxology”), related passages and the Letter of James to see where “REAL” followers of Jesus oughta be busy.

    I am a REAL follower of Jesus. I am also for all intents and purposes an Atheist. Go figure.

    Or if you don’t go figure, read Lucretius’ DE·RERUM·NATURA. You can learn a lot about it through Stephen Greenblatt’s “The Swerve – How the World Became Modern”. (I am not related to author or publ.)

    There. Now which “Christianity” is the REAL one?

    Dogmatically, none. Action-wise, none, for the most part, not even on Sundays.

    Watch out for the KY fried chicken, it’s terrible!

  71. Mike_in_the_Tundra says:

    You know, sometimes I get a lot of grief for being a gay Christian. That grief comes from fellow LGBT people and mostly from fellow Christians. I have absolutely no objection to getting on one’s knees to pray. However, I have absolutely no objection to getting on one’s knees for other reasons. It does tend to make other people very happy, as well as myself. In fact John Scotus, you may want to try both. It must be on your mind if you dropped by to make that comment.

  72. Thom Allen says:

    And they’re so out of touch with the real world that they’re clueless.

  73. Thom Allen says:

    What makes you think it’s a “he”? Sounds like you’re fixated on gay sex like most of the other conservatives a la frothy, Caraboobie, Bachmaniac et al.

  74. Thom Allen says:

    As in “Call to Fall to your Knees to Blow Me.”

  75. What in hell are they thinkin? says:

    Depends on which one you’ve joined. If you’re in Kansas, the Wailing Batshit Cult is the One True Church. Utah? The Morans (sic). Appalachia? The Snake Biters. If you’re Republican most fundie sects qualify.

  79. Mike_in_the_Tundra says:

    Wow. You did a poll? I know a few guys that you missed.

    Mistakes like this, tea bagging, and 2M4M makes me think that certain right wingers have a super boring sex life. I guess any heterosexual who think mostly about gay sex has to have a very inhibited sex life.

  80. John Scotus says:

    Wow. You think he’s performing oral sex. Everyone else thinks he’s praying. Sounds like you have a warped mind.

  81. Oh, dear — amazing what just a little ignorance of the thing you are protesting about can lead to.

    If they call themselves Christian, they’re Christian. There are hundreds of sects of Christianity all swearing that they are the only true Christians and all others are false.

    Tell me please, which one is TRUE Christianity.

    Especially since there is no contemporary evidence of the eixistence of this person, all we have is just-so stories and recycled myths about Jesus that had been used before for many prophets. Virgin birth, rising from the dead, all of it.

    Whose just-so stories are the right ones?
    Which “Christianity” is the REAL one?

    Either closet cases or double graphic artist agents, hahaha!

  122. UncleBucky says:

    Thumpers and fundies are christianISTs, not Christians.

    And there is a risk that Christianity, invented by Paul, not Jesus, is far from the original ideas expressed in as little as the Lord’s Prayer. Add to that, that the Beatitudes, Parables, and related passages barely made it in without being completely overlayed with Paulism, who wrote before the gospel authors.

    Bottom line, I would love to hear from some people that truly represent Christians, such as The Christian Left and many Catholics, Orthodox, Episcopalians, Methodists, Presbyterians and a few others who follow Jesus rather than Paul exclusively. There are MORE followers of Jesus than there are christianISTs, no?

    We need to assemble a cadre of REAL followers of Jesus and set the networks and cable stations with them rather than letting the stupid people within the media (the conservative media!!!!!) do the choosing.

  123. OMG, I didn’t realize I had posted Andy’s teabagging video and not the 2M4M one – just added it at the bottom, so to speak

  124. Thom Allen says:

    The vision of Michele and Mrs. Bachmann on their knees . . . REEEEpulsive!

  134. Monoceros Forth says:

    Well, if they think that they can pray away marriage equality then they’re welcome to try. I’ll even endure such prayers in public if it means taking their time away from more noxious pursuits.

    [Even their little logo they use for the tabs on your Web browser shows the man on his knees]

    It’s called a favicon. Ever heard of the Internet?

  139. Thom Allen says:

    Hard to kneel when you have that rattlesnake in your mouth. You need room to move when you get bitten.

  140. Thom Allen says:

    Family Research Council spokesperson announces a correction. He says that there was a typo in the name of the new anti-gay blog. Instead of Call2Fall it should be Call2FAIL.

  141. MyrddinWilt says:

    I think that Michael Steele chap they picked as RNC chair was a plant as well. He screwed up their electoral strategy, made the GOP a laughing stock and took several millions of dollars for doing so.

    I nominate June 30th as national oral sex day.

    Yeah…gotta get a grip on things, y’know!

  145. Monoceros Forth says:

    Do the current gang of American religious zealots even go in for kneeling in prayer? I would guess that even such a minor gesture of humbling oneself isn’t the fundie way, since it does involve humility.

    Haven’t said, “I’m in” for a few decades now.

    Play the Andy Cobb video. You’ll fall off again. ;-)

  148. S1AMER says:

    I hurt myself falling off my chair. It’s your fault, John.

  149. BeccaM says:

    Has to be. I was raised Catholic and spend more than a few hours in the pews. My first impression was, “That ain’t how you kneel, unless you’ve got both hands wrapped firmly around something sturdy.”

  150. BeccaM says:

    I for one am happy to see the bigots on their knees, all submissive, hopeless and defeated.

    Seems appropriate, no?

  151. AnitaMann says:

    Runner up for the slogan was “On our backs with legs open wide, holding our ankles, and freshly douched… for America.” They thought it was too wordy.

  152. Jim Olson says:

    I think their PR firm has a secret gay working for them, who is a master of subterfuge.
