As a birthday present from the blog fodder gods, I found this piece of rubbish in my inbox yesterday morning: an email from Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio. At first I was confused as to why I received it, but then I remembered that I took a survey hosted by his organization that PZ Myers had selected for Pharyngulation. Apparently my votes in favor of the so-called "gay agenda" constitute signing his petition.
I'll post the email in its entirety below the jump, along with some choice illustrations I've added in. I'll post my response in a separate entry due to length.
Thank you for your recently signed petition. I am excited to know you are an American who is willing to take a stand for pro-family values.
Here at Public Advocate, fighting for and defending the family values our nation was founded on is what we are all about.
If you are looking for a hard-hitting pro-family organization with a history of victories against the growing radical Homosexual Lobby, look no further than Public Advocate of the United States.
Founded in 1981, Public Advocate quickly took center stage as the nation’s leading family advocate with over 400,000 united pro-family activists.
Time after time, Public Advocate has beaten back the attempts of the Homosexual Lobby to pass legislation aimed at making homosexuals a special class of citizens.
But, victories these days have been harder and harder to come by.
Which is why I so excited to have your signed petition!
With it, I will prove to Congress that the American people still hold traditional family values dear.
And if you believe the threat of the Homosexual Lobby is being blown out of proportion, think again.
At this very moment, individuals and organizations with hundreds of millions of dollars that comprise the Homosexual Lobby are working to pass their radical agenda.
Here are just a few names and organizations you may recognize: Tim Gill, Barney Frank, Pat Stryker, Jared Polis, Cindy and Meghan McCain, The Advocate, GLAAD, and the Human Rights Campaign.
All of these people are working towards what they call “equal rights” for homosexuals, when in reality, the rights they are trying to acquire would be unique to homosexuals only.
A Thought Control bill was just recently passed. This bill puts into law regulations that deem so-called “hate speech” as illegal.
This has me worried, and I hope you are too. Because who is to say what language will be considered hate speech?
Don’t believe me? In Canada and Europe pastors have been thrown in jail for preaching Biblical teachings against homosexuality.
This very well may be the reality of Thought Control in the United States.
I hope you know how serious this issue really is.
Which is why, as President of Public Advocate, I have devoted my life to protecting family values and defending our freedoms.
I want to leave a legacy I am proud of, knowing the United States is still the nation I grew up in.
But without your support, this year alone we could see Barney Frank’s so-called “Employment Non-Discrimination Act” put into law.
We call this the “Gay Bill of Special Rights” because it doesn’t eliminate discrimination, it destroys workplace protection from radical homosexuals whose only mission is to spread their agenda.
If passed, the Gay Bill of Special Rights would require workplaces to meet a quota of homosexual employees, forcing employers to choose a radical homosexual over a potentially more qualified candidate.
And no workplace will be exempt. Churches, daycares, nursing homes, private schools, you name it, all will have to adhere to these regulations.
And Obama is even looking to push for the repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" this year, which would remove the protection our soldiers have from the Homosexual Lobby.
And even the Healthcare bill is filled with numerous paybacks to homosexuals, giving lower healthcare premiums to “unmarried” homosexuals than married couples, all paid for at taxpayer expense.
I hope you understand this threat is real. . . and imminent.
And I also hope you will consider making a donation to Public Advocate to help protect our family values.
Public Advocate will never waver from the firm conviction that political decisions should begin and end with the best interests of American families and communities in mind, and that marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman.
Public Advocate has been 100% dependent on the financial support of contributors, we do not receive any government or taxpayer money, nor do we want it.
I would appreciate it if you could help support Public Advocate by making a charitable contribution, please click here.

There are some tough battles coming up very soon and I am going to need your help if we are to win.
Thank you for your support.
