The Office of Civil Rights lets gay-bashing Flagler, Florida school administrators off the hook

By: Sunday April 22, 2012 11:09 pm

Out gay student Luke Herbert — now 17 — suffered a blazing, screaming hell of abuses in the Flagler County, Florida public schools between 2008 – 2011.

NOM’s Robert George “OK” With Beating-the-Gay Out of Young LGBTers

By: Thursday April 19, 2012 6:31 pm

The notorious gay-bashing bigot Pastor Ken Hutcherson is in league with NOM in Washington State, spreading anti-gay lies, attempting to strip gay human beings of rights, and inciting to anti-gay violence. Hutcherson recently told KCTS television that just as two parents with belts can beat the criminal gene out of their offspring, “discipline . . [...]

Romney and NOM Fanning Hostility Against Israel

When the so-called National Organization for Marriage recently — once again — took its anti-gay intimidation campaign international with a Starbucks boycott — (inciting to violence against LGBTers, as well as against Starbucks employees and property) – only because Starbucks supports human rights for gay people – it translated its anti-gay hate speech into Arabic and [...]

By: Tuesday April 10, 2012 8:22 am

In April, 2011, when GetEqual’s Michael Dixon presented NOM’s Maggie Gallagher with her “Anita Bryant Unparalleled Bigotry” Award, Gallagher said “There’s no point in conversing with someone who calls you a liar,” as though no anti-gay lie had ever passed her lips.

What on earth is Dr. Ronnie L. Baity talking about?

"Racial Discrimination: The Reality Show"

By: Monday February 8, 2010 8:00 pm

Brown Man Thinking Hard has posted an excellent video to help non-Blacks step into the shoes of a Black person in this “post-racial” America and discover just how flimsy the term “post-racial” can be.  I have long had my own fantasies of opening a summer camp for heterosexuals called “Gay Camp”, where they have the [...]
