Dear Matt Barber: Calling yourself a Christian does not make it so

| Monday, July 21, 2014

Calling yourself a Christian does not give you special privileges in this country. Calling yourself a Christian does not make you a better American than me. And calling yourself a Christian does not absolve you from rights and responsibilities that all Americans have. This is not, nor has it ever been, a Christian nation, and the rest of us who don’t practice your beliefs do not exist here for your will and pleasure.

Seven more groups now designated by SPLC as anti-gay hate groups

| Monday, March 3, 2014
hate-groups
The Southern Poverty Law Center has added seven more anti-gay organizations to its list of anti-gay hate groups. No doubt the standard whine of these groups will be the same one offered up by the Family Research Council when SPLC named it as a hate group a while back, i.e. “we are being attacked because we don’t believe in gay marriage, we are trying to preserve Christian morality, we are being silenced.” That whine was a lie then and is still a lie...

The ugly collusion between ‘religious faith’ and bigotry

| Monday, December 30, 2013
Anti-gay-protest
There is an ugly collusion between religious belief and bigotry which we don’t talk about, and it didn’t begin with the LGBT community. It wasn’t that long ago when religious belief and faith was used to justify slavery, segregation, and anti-Semitism. Sadly, the LGBT community seems to be the last bastion where it is okay to justify demonizing people under the guise of “adhering to one’s faith.” ... Folks who do these things always seem to think that they own the word "Christianity" and everyone else is beholden to their interpretation.

The LGBT community desperately needs to confront anti-gay propaganda

| Wednesday, September 18, 2013
SourceDemonstartors at an anti-gay protest in California.
The LGBT community has deceived itself into thinking that if we just sidestep the lies and distortions and solely focus on “telling our stories” as ordinary people seeking fairness under the American system, our problems with those who oppose our right to equality will dissipate. It’s high time that the LGBT community realize that this belief is a false bill of goods that serves as a pitiful Band-Aid to a problem that requires more than stories designed to yank at the heart strings; indeed, such efforts make it look as if we are begging for “tolerance.”

Family Research Council clearly lying about scientific evidence, gay parenting

| Saturday, March 9, 2013
Ken Blackwell
Do me a favor, folks. Don’t shake your head, suck your teeth and go “there they go again” at yet another time you have seen the Family Research Council blatantly lie about the gay community. Demand that more time and knowledge be invested in uncovering how organizations like FRC distort science or push blatant lies against the lgbt community. Organizations like the Family Research Council don’t rely on truth. They rely on repetition. They repeat a point while deliberately ignoring the simple fact that the point has been refuted by those who know better.

Family Research Council is to blame for near massacre at its headquarters

| Thursday, February 7, 2013
FRC President Tony Perkins
Someone has to sit Tony Perkins down and school him on the truth. I am very certain that Perkins is already aware of this truth, but he needs to be told publicly so that everyone else can know. The Southern Poverty Law Center is not responsible for Floyd Corkins’ near massacre at FRC headquarters last year. If Perkins wants to blame someone, he should look to himself and his organization. For years, while under the guise of Biblical principles, the FRC has dehumanized the LGBT community....

| Tuesday, October 9, 2012
NOMlogo
Pay attention, gay folks. There is seems to be a quiet war going on against our rights to be surrogate parents. Via the NOM blog, I found this highly offensive piece, The New Sexual Predators. In it, the author, Alana S. Newman compares gay couples...

Mike Huckabee spreads confusion about homosexuality and pedophilia

| Saturday, July 21, 2012
mike-huckabee
The reason why the Boy Scouts made such a ridiculous decision regarding keeping gays out is because people like former Governor and now radio talk show host Mike Huckabee. Listen how he and a caller who was molested as a child makes it seem that gays want to be in the Boy Scouts to "go after" children.

Marvel Comics proves religious right has unhealthy obsession with gay community

| Monday, June 4, 2012
xmen-51
In the last few years, “The Punisher” comic book has been the showcase of, shall we say, repulsive actions, all viewed in living color ... But not once, I repeat, not once have any religious right group raised anything resembling anger, outrage, disgust, or downright shock over any of these things...

Dear Alveda King, your lie about Bayard Rustin will not go unanswered

| Friday, May 25, 2012
alveda-king
Dear Ms. Alveda King, you like to talk about the so-called sin of homosexuality, but let me remind you that the Bible also says something against bearing false witness. And between me and you, from one African-American to another, I would personally like to know just what constitutes you as a genuine leader in the black community? To my knowledge, no one has taken the initiative to ask you that question, so I would like to. Do you really think that your relationship to one of the greatest American leaders of the 20th century makes you a leader?
