Isn’t it time this group retired or started making fun of Protestants or Muslims for a change? Their shtick is tired! I am a proud, out gay man and I have to say these clowns annoy me. Please don’t tell me about all their charitable efforts. The KKK, another anti-Catholic group, also did a lot of charitable things. I agree with Mike – in the year 2014 they are an embarrassment to the community and it’s time to acknowledge that.

They are an embarrassment to the community. Transsexuals are one thing but these QUEENS are another. How is the GLBT community going to be accepted when CLOWNS like this group continues to run around?
