Boy Scouts Decision has Congressman Angry, Thinking About Lurid Sex Acts

By: Wednesday May 29, 2013 7:35 am

No doubt, a lot of folks are upset regarding the Boy Scouts allowing gay youth to participate. And that’s their right. But this statement by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) last week on the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch takes the cake for the basest, most ignorant thing I have ever heard. It’s simply so sad [...]

New book denigrates same-sex families

By: Sunday May 26, 2013 1:35 pm

We hear so much from the opposition that they are being attacking for supposedly simply believing that marriage should be confined to one man and one woman and that the raising of children should be confined to that sole dynamic. It’s difficult for us to demonstrate how many times those expressing that belief cross the [...]

The Family Research Council’s sad attempt to attach gay equality to the DOJ leak story

By: Thursday May 23, 2013 7:48 am

This is just pathetic. Apparently the Family Research Council is attempting to attach gay equality to the Department of Justice leak story: When the Justice Department is done violating journalists’ First Amendment rights, it looks like they’ll move on to employees’. In a chilling memo to DOJ staff, the Obama administration is warning managers that [...]

Book on anti-gay propaganda becomes number one online success

By: Saturday May 18, 2013 10:01 am

This post has been updated to address recent news On January 8, I published How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America  on Scribd. My goal at the time was to create a simple understanding of  religious right  anti-gay propaganda by the use of graphics, visuals, and information I gleaned from [...]

Why is Christianity getting a bad rep? Because of this . . .

By: Friday May 17, 2013 7:45 am

Unbelievable. A day after smearing gay men with an ugly tweet about the Boy Scouts and pedophilia, Liberty Counsel member and Liberty University Dean (yeah, I know!) Matt Barber has the audacity to talk about how marriage equality is from Satan and is a way that government is “shaking its fist” at God. I doubt [...]

‘Christian’ conservative spokesman posts nasty homophobic cartoon

By: Tuesday May 14, 2013 9:02 pm

This absolutely vindictive cartoon is courtesy of Liberty Counsel member Matt Barber. The sad irony is that this is the same guy who had the nerve to pen a “I don’t hate you, just your lifestyle” letter:   I know from which I speak. I am no better than you. I, too, once lived a [...]

Family Research Council continues to link gays to pedophiles

By: Monday May 13, 2013 7:56 am

The following video is yet another one pushed by the Family Research Council claiming that if gays are allowed in the Boy Scouts, there will be more boys at risk of being molested. This time, FRC allows Brian Rushfeldt, head of Canada Family Action do its dirty work. It’s truly nauseating how low FRC will [...]

Why gays get angry – when the ‘butt sex’ Christian meets the discredited researcher

By: Friday May 10, 2013 1:39 pm

No matter how the religious right (and unfortunately a few members of the media) attempt to turn the momentum of marriage equality into a debate of whether Christians are now the victims of bigotry and lgbts are the perpetrators, it will always come back to the video above to refute that point. The discredited anti-gay [...]

Religious right portrays Jason Collins as threatening black man who has ‘butt sex’

By: Thursday May 9, 2013 7:41 am

Apparently the religious right are upset to the point of insane distraction by the fact that NBA player Jason Collins came out of the closet. While the lgbt community, while still celebrating Collins’ decision to be open about his life, have pretty much moved to other matters, the religious right continue to castigate Collins. The [...]

NOM had better recognize that its supporters are going too far

By: Wednesday May 8, 2013 7:44 am

The above comment was left on a recent post of the National Organization for Marriage’s blog by a longtime NOM blog commentator and supporter Barb Chamberlan (she has posted over 2,000 times on NOM’s blog alone): It’s always fascinating to Google the names of children in the grips of same-sex couples. You’ll be surprised at [...]
