Poor, Poor ADF (Bringing in the Sheaves)

Michael Farris
Hate group leader Michael Farris is attempting to exploit ADF's hate group designation. Alliance Defending Freedom is designated as an anti-LGBT hate group for good cause. Yet, on Thursday Farris sent out an email titled “Fighting the ‘hate’ label.” Now you might think that their choices are:
  1. Factually dispute the designation as a hate group with Southern Poverty Law Center or;
  2. Mend their ways. 

Instead, they have a different strategy:

Charges Against Ed Murray Are Not Representative of Anything

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray
Seattle Mayor Ed Murray
The anti-LGBT hate site, LifeSiteNews is running a post titled “Seattle’s homosexual mayor faces multiple child rape allegations.” Obviously, this has nothing to do with the Catholic Church or important news. The reason that LifeSiteNews is running this is to denigrate gay people. They are obsessed with gay people. LSN's tags on the piece are “homosexuality, rape, seattle mayor ed murray.” Their pernicious intent is to claim that gay men are child molesters. It is a call to stereotype. It is not true!

It is important to remember that these are allegations against Mayor Ed Murray of Seattle. Yet, even if true, what is the point? For example, quoting from the Washington Post regarding an incident that gained some notoriety:

An amusing dissertation on Satanism with some homophobia thrown in

“No Satanist ever called me a faggot.”
Satanic Worship
John Horvat II writes: “A Call to Protest the Growing Threat from Satanism.” It is an exposition of hypocrisy. Horvat is V.P. of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP). I generally describe TFP as a cult formed with the hypothetical marriage of Opus Dei to the John Birch Society. It has its origins in Central and South American dictatorships fighting agrarian reform; some quite brutally. Threat? TFP is un-American and neofascist and it has some ties to Nazis who emigrated to the Americas after World War II (on forged Red Cross passports facilitated by the Vatican).

LiMandri: I was right all along about same-sex marriage

Charles LiMandri
Charles LiMandri excuses his bigotry with religious belief (he professes to be an ultra-conservative Catholic). LiMandri predicted that marriage equality would bring civil war to the United States. Gay marriage was always an end-of-world proposition. We are more than two years post-Obergefell and not much has happened in the way of revolt or the world coming to an end but that doesn't stop Charles LiMandri from claiming otherwise.

LiMandri's dipsie is titled: “Same-sex ‘marriage’: Religious right was right all along.” After some preliminaries with the usual rhetoric:

End-of-World, Part 1

AFA tries to intimidate with absurd threat to "primary" Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
American Family Association is a hate group. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (my Congress critter in Miami Beach) knows that AFA is a hate group. Ileana is a GOPer but she has a transgender son, Rodrigo.

Today's missive from hate group leader Tim Wildmon is titled: “Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen voted for sex changes in military.” That is not entirely accurate. She voted against an amendment to the Defense Authorization that would ban all treatment for gender dysphoria except for mental health care. That includes the service member's children.

David Benham tells a whopper

Benham Brothers
Not exactly the rocket science look
The Benham Brothers are not exactly the brightest bulbs. David Benham's latest story causes me to wonder if he measures intellect by his own shortcomings. According to the Brothers' latest piece titled “Former Lesbian Finds New Identity—in Christ:”
Last week, on the same day Eugene Peterson came out in favor of gay marriage—and later retracted —I (David) had a great conversation with a same-sex attracted young woman who came out of the lesbian lifestyle and surrendered her life to Jesus.

I am no great fan of Caitlyn Jenner but she deserves a fair measure of respect

The headline at LifeSiteNews reads: “Transgender Republican Bruce Jenner may run for Senate, will push LGBT agenda.” LSN is a far-right Catholic outlet.

Doug Mainwaring, who wrote that headline, wants to ensure that readers know that he does not approve of Caitlyn Jenner. This imbecile is an openly gay man who should realize that the same people who he writes for don't approve of him. The fact that he returned to his ex-lesbian wife is irrelevant to them. The fact that he writes bigoted anti-LGBT pieces is irrelevant to them. At the end of the day, he is just one more homosexual.
