Anti-gay activist, Weekly Standard warn of ‘radical homosexuals’ indoctrinating children

Thursday, January 5, 2012

WASHINGTON — Subscribers to the conservative Weekly Standard on Thursday received an anti-gay fundraising email warning that “radical homosexuals” were pushing the Student Non-Discrimination Act(SNDA) as part of an attempt to “indoctrinate” children while creating a “new America based on sexual promiscuity.”

Under the subject line, “Congress to mandate pro-homosexual education?,” the email referred to LGBT people as “deviants,” and “dangerously close to ramming their perversity into law.” [Email here, PDF]

The fundraising appeal and anti-gay message was from anti-gay activist Eugene Delgaudio, who is focused on defeating the Student Non-Discrimination Act, which would bar discrimination against LGBT students in public schools.

Delgaudio is titular head of the Falls Church, Va.-based Public Advocate of the United States, which claims its mission is to, among other things, provide “vocal opposition to … the furtherance of so-called “Gay Rights,” and says hate crimes laws protecting LGBT people “singles out Christians or moral thinking people…for persecution.”

Earlier this year, the organization gave its Family Advocate Award to Marcus Bachmann for his working in counseling “ex-gays.”

Among the e-mail’s assertions are that the SNDA measure would “require schools to teach appalling homosexual acts so ‘homosexual students’ don’t feel ‘singled out’ during already explicit sex-ed classes.”

“It is alarming to see a political media outlet push this hateful rhetoric and act as a platform for the fundraising efforts of such an extremist group,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese.

“Regardless of the alleged political bents of any news outlet, or any audiences, it is reprehensible and irresponsible for the Weekly Standard to partner with this fringe group. The Weekly Standard is now giving gravitas to outrageous lies about LGBT people.

“William Kristol should do the right thing — apologize and distance his publication from the hateful misinformation campaign of the so-called Public Advocate of the United States,” Solmonese said.

The fundraising email — under the banner, “A Message from our sponsor … The Weekly Standard” — calls SNDA the “Homosexual Classrooms Act” and says it is a means for LGBT advocates to advance “their entire perverted vision for a homosexual America.”

The Weekly Standard, with a circulation of over 60,000, calls itself “the most quoted, clipped, and talked-about magazine in Washington and political circles.”

  16. How sad, that (supposed) Christians would spout such hateful things. LOVE is all that matters and homosexuality cannot be taught or spread like a disease. This just makes me so sad.

  18. It’s this type off closed minded asshole that will render us from ever having equality. This ridiculous anti-gay nitwit should find something, anything better to do with his pathetic life. I’m so sick of people trying to do whatever it takes to strip us of our fucking rights. I could go on and on about this but I digress. Just cannot wait for our time to truely shine!

    Posted on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 8:50pm
  21. we might think these people are ludicrous and stupid but these people are SERIOUS in their crusade to invoke their hatred of gays as truth and to prevent equality from ever being incorporated into our laws. we need to take these people seriously and to keep educating family, friends, neighbors and co workers about ourselves and inform them about these extremist. contribute to GLBT organizations, remain active in our politics and vote progressive in 2012.

  23. They just like saying “indoctrinating children” a lot. Maybe they like the way the cheeks fill with a little air whenever they pronounce the word. I bet some actually flutter their cheeks when they say it. :-{P}

  28. That other wack-job, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association is another Reich Wing virulently anti-gay hater as well…BUT, if we and our allies stay together and start fighting back, we WILL win…

  29. I thought that “God” was all for acceptance and shit. So, where do these Christians find the room to justify the merciless oppression and discrimination of us. Just seems unreasonable to me.
    Not to mention the fact that twi straight people that aren’t even in, love, can get married for 72 DAYS and it be legal. But when two homosexuals want to marry after being in love for years, it’s considered unjust and unconstitutional. Bullshit.

    Posted on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 9:16pm
  30. i just want to know where people are getting all these ideas. i mean, where does it specifically state that gay = promiscuous? hello — has anybody heard that nelly furtado/timbaland song promiscuous girl? if we’re indoctrinating children with anything, it should be that close-minded people like these guys aren’t worth our time.

  32. This Christian fascist is a known lunatic who is a lowlife, smalltime county political in a backward part of Virginia. He is the equivalent of dog catcher. His “organization” is a one man operation of desperation. He’s a sociopath that needs serious psychological help and medication.

    Posted on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 9:33pm
  33. Oh I am guilty of that. Uhuh. I have a ten year old who has two Dads. He loves us and cries for us. He wants us to be married and happy. He was very excited about finding “Gay” themed movies on Netflix today and told us “Now you’ll have something to watch”. Yeah, he’s indoctrinated. He loves and supports us and wants us to be happy so he can live with us forever. His words.

  34. That’s so funny! What’s a homosexual vs. a “radical homosexual”? I supose I’d be a moderate, I only rock a rainbow occasionally :) The christians really crack me up sometimes.

  35. “Perverted vision for a homosexual America?” The last time I checked, we weren’t the ones trying to force others to have the same sexuality as us…

    Posted on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 9:39pm
  36. Seems to me the ones u hear about ” indoctrinating the children ” are the ones in the very churches of the one religion that’s making the most noise! Glass houses and stones…

  37.

  38. “‘radical homosexuals’ were pushing the Student Non-Discrimination Act(SNDA) as part of an attempt to “indoctrinate” children while creating a “new America based on sexual promiscuity.’”
    Think about that. He claims gays are trying to make this into America, when the GOVERNMENT are the ones trying to keep JUST heterosexual marriage allowed. Hypocrisy much?

  43. Bible-believing Christians (or Jews or Muslims, for that matter) by no means have a monopoly on morality or ethics.

    Quite the opposite, and it is on their shoulders to prove otherwise. Those who ‘believe’ in the bible and who follow its precepts have used it to justify: slavery; genital mutilation, genocide, murder, and a host of other disgusting truly immoral behaviors.

    God commanded Moses, in his last earthly act, to exterminate the Midianites (Numbers 31:7-18), so that the wives they had taken for their polygamous marriages would have no where else to go. He also commanded them to destroy the Hitites, the Canaanites and the Amorites.

    Now, there is not one shred of archeological evidence that any of this nonsense is true, but it is the basis for the justification for the slaughtering of peoples all over the world in the name of god. It is but one more example of how religion is truly the root of all evil – after all, ‘evil’ is a religious concept…no such thing as an evil honeybee or an evil salamander (just snakes, yeah, that’s right, snakes…which eat rats which host flees which cause plague which is god’s punishment. NONSENSE, but I rant).

    If you don’t think religion and the religious are the enemy, then you don’t know an enemy when you see one.

  45. Us straight people indoctrinate our children with a lot of hocus pocus nonsense. It should be a right of any parent to do so. The crazy thing is those who believe this nonsense teach their kids that they will go to hell for not being indoctrinated correctly by their parents.

    Posted on Friday, January 6, 2012 at 9:58am
  46. The Student Non-Discrimination Act is a fantastic, progressive, and affirming initiative … so of course they’re against it!

  47. The only thing I’ll be indoctrinating is my foot into his narrow-minded and bigoted ass.

  48. Delgaudio claims he had an epiphany about gays> He’s probably a fixed gay, not fixed but utterly terrorized into denial of his own sexuality.

    I know several fixed gays, I always ask them “what about Matthew Shepard, the gay college kid brutally beaten by a couple of Catholic kids ****** in Oct 1998

    all of thes so called fixed gays say “his parents should have fixed him” Blaming the p;parents for their sons murder

    These type of people are not too unlike those who gave us 9-11.. Utterly brainwashed into beliefs, eg like the 9-11 gang fearing Islams version of hell, and its version of paradise – 72 virgins for their pleasure etc.

    And its hard to spot them, eg Mohammed Atta lived a normal middle class life in Germany as a city planner.

    But like other people who suddenly become murderers, his religious leaders had turned him into s a sleeping psychopath

    Delgaudio is similar, though he prob hasnt taken flying lessons. Words kill. Some guy named AH taught us that when he took the most cultured nation in Europe – Germany , and the rest is history. BTW he was born catholic and baptised in very cath Austria. Read Mein Kampf and see how he devoloped his hate

    NOw I ask you – who is one of the most homophobic churches re giving gays equal rights, and who created the hatred of Jews over a millennium with charges of Deicide and the bloood libel biz

    IMO its the vatican, the church of the endless HIDDEN molestation of children. And that might actually be another cause of Delgaudios problems. Molested people often, to work out their pain, molest others. Ask any psych.

    The church of RATZINGER who UNexcommunicated Bishop Williamson, a holocaust denier both creates monsters in some cases, then uses them for the vaticans’ agenda.

    The vatican also talks about relgiious freedom. They had it in Nazi Germany. Where that led is shown on the website http://nobeliefs.com/nazis.thm

    ****I know Matthews parents. The local catholic church tried to smear the prosecuter, and illegally influence the jury.

    The church is also probably responsible for the rumors that his murder was a drug deal gone bad.
