On Roy Moore it is difficult to fathom who is more idiotic - Mat Staver or his repeaters

Mat Staver and Roy Moore
Michael F. Haverluck at American Family Association's news blog, wrote the headline; “JIC sics ex-SPLC director on Chief Justice Moore.” According to Haverluck:
The State of Alabama’s Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) made a bold move by hiring the former legal director of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s <sic> (SPLC), John Carroll, to prosecute the Supreme Court of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore — rooted in his stance of protecting natural marriage in the face of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex “marriage.”

ADF asserts that trans people are insane

Jordan Lorence
Jordan Lorence, senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom provides a pastor's tale on ADF's blog titled “Transitioning at the North Carolina DMV.” A “pastor's tale” is a bit of fiction offered as a truthful narrative to make what the pastor perceives to be a moral point. The righteousness of the conclusion supersedes the fact that the underlying story is not true.

This bit of supposed conversation between a clerk at the DMV and someone applying for a handicap parking permit sums up Lorence's tale:

Exorcist: There’s a Demon That Specializes in Attacking the Family

Taking a brief break from writing about the need to protect a few transgender kids, this is what some LGBT oppressors actually believe. I'd wager that Erika Bachiochi (the subject of an earlier post) believes this stuff. Robert P. George and Ryan T. Anderson as well.

According to the National Catholic Register: “There’s a demon that specializes in attacking the family,” said exorcist César Truqui, a priest who participated in a course on exorcism held in Rome last year.

Witherspoon Institute trots out another crackpot on transgender access

Erika Bachiochi
Erika Bachiochi has the pretentious academic title of “Visiting Fellow” at the Ethics and Public Policy Center which has a budget of about $4 million. Thursday she writes at (orthodox Catholic) Witherspoon Institute's intellectually pretentious blog “Rendering the Sexed Body Legally Invisible: How Transgender Law Hurts Women.” We (you, the reader, and I) cannot wait for the text in support of the title. Sure.
“…she has reached a preordained conclusion and is reverse engineering it to find rational support for a fallacy. Doing so only provides irrationality.”

Bill Donohue gets touchie-feelie with a hate group

Bill Donohue
Bill Donohue (a divorced man) is a blowhard defender of all things Catholic. Donohue blames the Church's abuse scandals on sexy altar boys. As head of the Catholic League Donohue was paid about $524 thousand In 2014 out of about $3 million in donations from the faithful.

The American College of Pediatricians is a minuscule splinter organization. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center it is an anti-LGBT hate group. The real professional organization is the American Academy of Pediatrics. To compare the two:

Stella Morabito finds yet another hidden agenda and sinister conspiracy

Stella Morabito
Polemicist Stella Morabito routinely claims insights that elude the rest of us. This time in Witherspoon Institute's intellectually pretentious blog she asserts that the purpose for transgender accommodations is to create a “de-sexed” and “de-humanized” society. Silly me. I always thought it was about giving a few transgender kids a less stigmatized public school experience. What do I know? According to Morabito:
