Policy Alliance
According to Family Policy Alliance: “We’re still a public policy partner of Focus on the Family.” Now that that is settled, one of their flunkies — Stephanie Curry — writes: What Prime-Time TV Isn’t Telling You.

After bemoaning some trans-positive content in prime time, Curry wants you to know several things:
Medical Resources intended for Women are being used by Men—For example, in Colorado a state medical program provides free or low-cost healthcare for low-income women who need breast and cervical cancer screenings. The program has been opened up to men, who say they’re women.

AFA is displeased with Orrin Hatch - Walker Wildmon weighs in

American Family Association is not happy with Orrin Hatch's final speech from the Senate floor. The six-term, 84-year-old lawmaker had the temerity to say (according to AFA):
I believe we can find substantial common ground on these issues that will enable us to both safeguard the ability of religious individuals to live their faith and protect LGBTQ individuals from invidious discrimination.
[…]
As one of my final acts as a U.S. senator, I challenge my colleagues to find a compromise on this crucially important issue — a compromise that is true to our founding principles.

Arithmetic is a challenge for the nativist AFA

American Family Association is known for being an anti-LGBT, anti-Islam hate group. They are also anti-immigrant. One of their flunkies, Michael F. Haverluck, writes: $5B for wall way less than illegals' $155B annual burden.

For starters, the $5 billion was a throw-up number without intensive study. We really have no idea how much this wall would cost were it ever completed. According to a recent report from the GAO, the cost to construct 722 miles of barriers in priority locations was estimated at $18 billion. Trump originally proposed about 2,000 feet of wall. He is now down to about 900 feet (depending on the day of the week, his blood pressure and Melania's, uh, … depth of attention).

Exploring Dr. Michael Brown's inferiority complex

Dr. Michael Brown is obsessed with gay people. That might reveal something about his own sexuality and insecurities but it is probably more complex than that.
Dr. Michael Brown
Wednesday, Michael Brown provides A Short Primer on the Bible and Homosexual Practice. Aside from the fact that the Bible says lots of things that are no longer applicable (like, say, murdering brides who turn out not to be virgins), Brown is being intellectually dishonest and, perhaps, revealing in ways that he does not intend.

I don't want to go through this entire treatise and I am more interested in the why than the what. Here is just a sample of Brown's prose:

Another Trump whopper about President Obama

The latest utterance from Dear Leader:
Presumably Trump is referring to a $400 million transaction which was the first payment of a settlement in the amount of $1.7 billion. Trump's number is about 88 times the actual dollar amount. Moreover, this was Iran's money. We owed this since 1979.

Two employees of ADF International have penned an essay for Witherspoon Institute's pseudo-intellectual blog. Witherspoon is an ultra-orthodox Catholic organization headed by an Opus Dei numerary. First, it is important to understand what ADF International does.

According to tax filings, ADF International is not part of Alliance Defending Freedom. However, it is fair to say that the organization is under the administrative control of Alliance Defending Freedom. ADF International is newly registered in the United Kingdom (May 26, 2017). No financial information has been required thus far.
