Another jerkoff dishonestly attacks the Equality Act

I never heard of this guy before nut he is spectacularly dishonest. The viewpoint doesn't bother me nearly as much as the BS.

Writing at Witherspoon Institute's pseudo-intellectual blog is a pseudo-intellectual post: The Orwellian Dangers of the “Equality Act.” The author of this lovely treatise is Alfred Kentigern Siewers and according to Witherspoon he “is Associate Professor of English at Bucknell University … Visiting Fellow … in the James Madison Program, Princeton University. He is a member of the lesser clergy of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia.”

The subtitle of what turns out to be a diatribe reads:
By establishing a national anthropology based on an ideology of self rather than embodied sex, the Equality Act would deepen cultural divisions and chill reasoned debate on complex bioethical issues. Those who do not accept the legislation’s totalitarian twisting of language would be open targets for a modern American parallel to Orwell’s “two-minutes hate.”

The National Review misses the point

According to George Leef on Thursday: A Medical School Professor Runs Afoul of the PC Enforcers. Leef's misadventure is on the part of Dr. Allan Josephson. George Leef is the director of research for the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal, a conservative North Carolina organization.

As you may recall, Josephson has sued the University of Louisville for viewpoint discrimination. He is represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (an anti-LGBT hate group). Until two years ago, Josephson was head of pediatric psychiatry at the university. Then in February, 2019 the university informed Josephson that his contract would no be renewed for the following academic year.

Mayor Pete brings out the crazies over plans for he and his husband to be parents

“The biggest problem that the children of gay couples face is the bigotry towards their parents expressed by unhinged religious zealots.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his husband announced last week their plans to raise children. This is a remarkable opportunity for a child or children. Mayor Pete, a Harvard graduate with an MA from Oxford, is a Rhodes Scholar, military veteran and enormously popular mayor. Mayor Pete's husband, Chasten Buttigieg, has a master's degree in education and is a teacher at a Montessori school. They appear to be ideal parents (at least to sane, rational people).

The Buttigiegs' background is not good enough for the Christian crazies. Gay crackpot, Doug Mainwaring took the cynical approach:

Eureka - Another crackpot physician

Where else but Witherspoon's pseudo-intellectual blog?

Tuesday, Dr. Monique Robles wrote: Understanding Gender Dysphoria and Its Treatment in Children and Adolescents. If only she provided text consistent with her title. She chose a conservative Catholic outlet to promote her “understanding.” In that venue, she allowed dogma to prevail over medical science.

Robles is intellectually dishonest. She has a religious objection to transgender people which compels her to find everything wrong with adolescent gender affirmation. This places her at odds with her own professional association.

I have some questions for Peter Sprigg

Peter Sprigg is just one of the many reasons that his employer, Family Research Council, is designated a hate group. Tuesday, Mr. Sprigg opines: Supreme Court Will Determine Whether “Sex” Means “Sex”. We all know what's coming but I will step through the intellectual dishonesty.
According to Sprigg:
LGBT activists want “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” (“SOGI”) to be protected categories in federal non-discrimination laws. They have been using a two-pronged attack to try to achieve this goal—working through both Congress and the courts.

A cynical grifter begs the question: Is it the bigotry or stupidity that is most obnoxious?

Eugene Delgaudio, a former member of the Loudoun County, Virginia Board of Supervisors, is an odious anti-LGBT grifter and cynic.
via YouTube
Monday, hate group leader Eugene Delgaudio Public Advocate of the U.S. issued a press release titled: Supreme Court Responds to Christian Plea for Relief from Anti-Christian Attacks. The same matter bears a different headline on the organization's website: Supreme Court Responds To Our 2 Appeals For Relief from Transgender Harrassment [sic]. Neither headline is factually accurate.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear these two cases (and one other) because of diversity among the circuits. Several federal appeals courts have ruled that LGBT discrimination is sexual discrimination prohibited by Title VII. Others disagree. Delgaudio and his organization are irrelevant in these matters.

Uh-oh - The Equality Act "undermines human freedom and dignity"

If enacted, the Equality Act protects people from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Stella Morabito
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
According to Stella Morabito: The So-Called Equality Act Is A Bait-and-Switch Power Grab. The subtitle of this epic treatise reads:
The ‘Equality’ Act doesn’t really protect anybody. It undermines human freedom and dignity by legally stripping Americans across the board of inalienable rights.
Some history is in order
Five years ago, April of 2014, Ms. Morabito claimed that same-sex marriage was also a “bait and switch” proposition. The goal of the gay community wasn't equality, she claimed, but abolishing the institution of marriage. I wonder how that is progressing. Six months later, in October, Morabito claimed that singles rights, combined with same-sex marriage, will abolish all marriage. Did that happen while I was napping?
