No more traditional links?

Yow!

Mike Silverman reports that as of now, the Traditional Values Coalition:

has their entire web site hidden behind a password/registration system. Not just their "private" membership alerts and such, but even their press releases require you to go through a complex registration process which includes a random number generator! I've never heard of any kind of political group which makes it so hard for a citizen to find out what they are actually saying.
This is news to me, and I am quite hurt by it, because I recently linked to them, and now my readers will not be able to read the quotes in full. (Unless, of course, I join and fork over some cookies so that I can find the new links and then force you to join to read them....)

At least they are not being hypocritical. Those who would shut others up must first shut themselves up.

Anyway, I just checked for myself by clicking on the links in my previous post (which worked fine when I posted them). They no longer work! All refer back to a page which requires becoming a member and logging in.

This isn't the first time I have seen the phenomenon of "now you see it, now you don't" web pages and entries.

What a fascinating world it is when people do not want the public to be able to read their own words at their own website! Maybe I should censor this blog, and not allow any of you to see it unless you first log in with cookies and join the Classical Values Coalition! That would show that I mean business, wouldn't it?

And not only have they destroyed my links to them, but their real agenda is to destroy links to our rich classical heritage -- bowdlerizing tradition in the name of tradition.

Plus, I'm afraid they might not like this blog site.

Lou Sheldon is one of the most despicable homo-haters I've ever heard of. Shortly after the atrocity of September 11, 2001, he was demanding that all homosexual lovers of any of those murdered or of any of the fire-fighters who died be denied any compensation for the loss of their loved ones, everything should be reserved only for those in "traditional families". All in the name of Christian "love", of course. That's why I call him and his ilk ChristiaNazis. As I've said before, if they don't like me calling them Nazis, then all they have to do is stop acting like Nazis. It's just that simple. No wonder he wants to hide his agenda.
