Hate groups exhale "victims" to inhale money

Isabella Chow

Financially, Family Research Council did not have a banner year in 2017 and it would cease to exist if it could not manufacture victims. The latest example is Isabella Chow, a UC Berkeley student senator who abstained from a vote condemning the Trump administration's initiative to make gender synonymous with sex.

Ms. Chow is the recipient of due opprobrium because she placed her Christian beliefs above her obligations as a student representative. Now she has become a Christian hero which required her first to be a Christian victim of those ubiquitous and dreaded LGBT activists.

Dr. Terry Trudel holds himself out as a psychiatrist in Pendleton, Oregon. However, he is not board certified. Trudel has decided to weigh in on gender-affirming surgery with a letter to his local paper, Peninsula Daily News. I have asked for consent to write a rebuttal (regional newspapers tend to only publish letters from residents). Behold:
Transplant recipients often reject organ donations when the immune system performs its natural function by sending cells or antibodies to destroy what is foreign.

Hateful propaganda from Witherspoon's pseudo-intellectual blog

Yet another absurd attempt at conforming the real world to the catechism of the Catholic Church.
The title of the latest incoherent anti-LGBT polemic from Witherspoon Institute is: Where Angels Fear to Tread: The Fraud of Transgenderism. I note that it has also been published to an orthodox Anglican outlet. The authors are Babette Francis and John Ballantyne.

Ms. Francis heads the Australian Endeavour Forum which is like the hate group World Congress of Families. Mr. Ballantyne claims to be a Melbourne-based historian and journalist. I cannot find an academic appointment.

No Ms. Higgins - Sexuality is neither a doctrine nor philosophy

Isabella Chow is now the object of community disapproval. It is comparable to the disapproval that she would expose LGBT students to.

Laurie Higgins is the lead propagandist for Illinois Family Institute, an anti-LGBT hate group. Wednesday, Higgins was defending Isabella Chow. Chow is a member of the UC Berkeley student senate and abstained from a vote condemning the Trump administration's initiative to make gender synonymous with sex.

Efforts by conservative Christians to make Chow some sort of hero and, at the same time, a victim of dreaded LGBT “activists” are the only reason that I know about the existence of Ms. Chow. According to Higgins: LGBT Indoctrination Leads to Ignorance and Tyranny. Tyranny, mind you. Higgins attempts to obscure her mediocre intellect with verbosity.

How dishonest is this hate group?

The folks at American Family Association, an anti-LGBT hate group, hold themselves out as Christian moralists. However, when it serves their purposes, particularly in service to the disparagement of LGBT people, AFA personnel will lie through their teeth. I touched on this Tuesday. I received yet another email from AFA and some additional information Wednesday morning.

Wednesday's email from AFA is titled: One company to boycott this Christmas. It is signed by Hate Group Leader Tim Wildmon. As you might have guessed the company AFA wants people to boycott is Target Corp. AFA has been at this for a few years now and the boycott hasn't made so much as a dent in Target's revenues. That is less relevant than the deceit.

AFA must need money - It's Target time again - UPDATED

Were I to confuse correlation with causation I might claim that American Family Association's silly boycott of Target Corp. has been beneficial to the company. Earnings are up, dividends are up and guidance is up. Target (NYSE:TGT) is expected to report strong third quarter results next week.

AFA, an anti-LGBT hate group, is still digging in. I suppose that it still brings in the sheaves.
