Proposed bill could allow adoption agencies to discriminate against gays while taking taxpayer money

By: Wednesday July 30, 2014 11:31 pm

This newest tripe, I mean action alert by the Family Research Council has gotten me a bit angry. The organization is pushing a bill which could allow adoption agencies and foster care providers to engage in anti-gay discrimination under the guise of religious freedom (see the bill here): In California, Massachusetts, Illinois, and D.C. religious [...]

Don’t fall for Sen. Rubio’s fake cry for ‘tolerance’ in marriage equality debate

By: Wednesday July 23, 2014 6:32 pm

One of the most transparent tactics opponents of marriage equality will attempt is to claim that supporters of marriage equality are intolerant of their opinion. It’s not only a transparent tactic but highly cynical. And apparently it’s the tactic that Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida is attempting: While Rubio has consistently held conservative positions on [...]

Anti-gay bigot Matt Barber goes too far, gets put in his place

By: Tuesday July 22, 2014 5:48 pm

No one has ever claimed that the Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber has ever observed simple rules of good taste and decorum in his attacks on lgbt equality. However, it is extremely safe to say that the image below, accompanying his post on The Coming Christian Revolt goes way beyond anything – a rainbow flag superimposed [...]

Five Acts of Anti-Gay Bigotry NOM Wants You to Forget

By: Thursday June 19, 2014 7:43 am

Today is the day in which the National Organization for Marriage tries to turn a page on a thus far disastrous year for the organization and get back to its original goal of denying gays the right to marry while pretending to be the “victims” of “lgbt oppression.” In Washington, NOM will be holding its [...]

Psssst! Here is the new lie the anti-gay right will spin about marriage equality

By: Monday June 16, 2014 9:03 pm

Arch-homophobe and wannabe mogul of an online “Christian publication” (BarbWire, which can be best described as an extension of his vile psyche) Matt Barber has a column out predicting that churches in America will soon be forced to marry gay couples. Never mind reading the entire thing because its his usual psycho wannabe John The [...]

Did anti-gay spokesman Mat Staver lie to Congressional committee?

By: Wednesday June 11, 2014 8:36 pm

It seems that Liberty University’s Mat Staver’s recent testimony in front of a Congressional committee has become more than he bargained for. The online publication Raw Story is now asking did he tell the committee a lie: On Tuesday, the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice held a hearing on “The State of Religious Liberty in [...]

FRC’s Tony Perkins exploits Bergdahl controversy to make tacky attack on judges

By: Tuesday June 10, 2014 9:02 pm

I’ve heard of throwing tantrums, but what the Family Research Council president Tony Perkins recently said about Wisconsin judge Barbara Crabb (the justice ruling against Wisconsin’s anti-marriage equality law) was just plain nasty: While Americans are glued to the story of one high-profile deserter, the courts seem packed with them — lawless judges eager to [...]

‘Gays threaten religious freedom’ lie exposed in Congressional hearing

By: Tuesday June 10, 2014 8:55 pm

This post is dedicated to the intelligent but misguided colleagues of mine who complain when anti-gay spokespeople are given a platform to spread their homophobic lies. You cannot stop lies by covering the mouth of those who tell them. You only give them power through pity. As the following post, courtesy of Right Wing Watch [...]

In 2012, it was discovered that the National Organization for Marriage was planning to divide the lgbt and African-American communities on the subject of marriage equality.  According to a court document: The strategic goal of this project is to drive a wedge between gays and blacks – two key democratic constituencies.
