Brian S. Brown complains of dirty tricks re: Kavanaugh - Solution: Send him $$$

Brian S. Brown
Friday, Brian S. Brown of National Organization for Marriage has sent out an email to supporters titled: Same old dirty tricks… (Brown likes three ellipses in his titles).

Brown is shameless. It seems that anything and everything can be crafted as a reason to send NOM some loot in spite of the fact that those donations will never be used for the stated purpose. It is called dishonesty but it's okay if one is a conservative Christian. Apparently that can be found somewhere within scripture.

Maine preachers banning banned LGBT books not really banned or, ...

Some Christian clerics in Rumford, Maine are displeased over the Rumford Public Library's promotion of Banned Books Week, September 23-29. Included in the local display are a number of LGBT themed books. Apparently the mere presence of such material  threatens to corrupt children or encourage them to become gay or trans.

Personally, as a child, I only read books with heterosexual characters. It didn't work.

The anti-LGBT bus tour

Tony Perkins has announced that Family Research Council's “Values Voter Bus Tour” will commence immediately. The bus will travel across a dozen states between now and Election Day to energize religious conservative voters.

Family Research Council is an anti-LGBT hate group.

Elton John and David Furnish win libel suit

No, it's not for what you think. In London, Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, have accepted an apology and undisclosed libel damages over a newspaper report that their dog severely injured a child while on a playdate.

Defendants in this case were News Group Newspapers which owns The Sun and Sun on Sunday. The Sun claimed in February that the dog inflicted “Freddy Krueger-like injuries.”

By the way, the MassResistance website got whacked

Suspended sometimes relates to an unpaid bill.

A rather bizarre polemic from Brian Camenker

Brian Camenker
Hate group leader Brian Camenker (MassResistance)
Brian Camenker is very upset with the Southern Poverty Law Center, supposedly for reasons other than the fact that the SPLC has designated Camenker's MassResistance a hate group. Camenker, who is Jewish, takes to a fundamentalist Catholic site to author: See how the liberal SPLC is the true hate group. Some selected passages from Camenker's diatribe:
More than ever, in this age of Trump, the Left simply cannot defend its ideas or positions with rational discussion. It must rely on the most extreme vitriol in the form of lies, distortions, disinformation, and dishonesty. This is something that most conservatives would never think of doing, but it is part of the Left's mindset.

Michelle Cretella and Defenders of the Faith respond to AAP

Michelle Cretella
Hate group leader Michelle Cretella (American College of Pediatricians) is predictably displeased that the real peer organization (the American Academy of Pediatrics) recommends gender affirmation for trans and gender nonconforming children.
Wednesday evening, Lisa Bourne, with the fundamentalist Catholic LifeSiteNews, wrote: American Academy of Pediatrics’ new guidelines support gender change for kids. The title is incorrect per se. Attempting to conform medical science to Catholic dogma confuses the people who are trying to confuse everyone else.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has released a lengthy statement regarding the care of transgender and gender-diverse youth. At the core of the AAP statement is the gender affirming care model. That is the direct opposite of Ms. Bourne's “gender change.”
