My booklet, How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America, is very popular on Scribd. It has already gotten over 68,000 reads and embedded views as well 600 downloads. Not bad for a little under two weeks. So in celebration, I thought I would share some outtakes. The following images are [...]

I have a new ‘non-cognitive elite’ celebrity spokesbot for NOM: Jimmie ‘J.J.’ Walker

By: Monday July 16, 2012 11:21 pm

I know that the National Organization for Marriage, as part of its battle plan, has been on the lookout for new “talent” to represent its anti-gay worldview.

Professional anti-gay Matt Barber: the NAACP has been brainwashed by ‘white sexual anarchists’

By: Friday July 13, 2012 11:40 pm

Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber - what a character, and a pretty vile one at that. This essay by Bam Bam — that’s his self-proclaimed moniker from his past-life as a a professional boxer — is outlandish.

Say what you will about GLAAD’s Commentator Accountability Project, it’s definitely keeping some members of the religious right up at nights. Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel – and a person named on the list of anti-gay pundits highlighted by GLAAD – had this to say in a biased One News Now article: Matt Barber, [...]

The Values Voter Summit: A Guide to the Anti-Gay, Anti-Muslim, Anti-Mormon, Anti-Choice Activists Spending the Weekend with the GOP

Thank you, People for the American Way, for sharing this primer on the fringe activists that will be bleating the usual hard-line social agenda and hob-nobbing with GOP politicians (including the major 2012 Clown Car occupants).
