AFA is calling us pedophiles

“Am I comparing AFA to the Klu Klux Klan? Yes I am and I am not afraid to say so.”
Tim Wildmon
Hate Group Leader Tim Wildmon has no limits on how he will smear the LGBT community. There is no governor on his bigotry.

Monday, American Family Association sent an email to supporters titled: See who wants to 'groom' your children.

AFA is exploiting the common understanding of “grooming” which is how pedophiles make children less resistant. It is loaded language designed to provoke a negative reaction by conflating LGBT people with pedophiles. This is how bigots create bigots.
Be afraid (an attack on the entire LGBTQ community):
Ensure that your family and friends are aware of the danger

What the 40% believe

Rush Limbaugh

The right seem convinced that they will not be fact-checked. The following is some of the mythology surrounding McCabe's book. My commentary follows.

Rush Limbaugh offered up his theory: Democrats went rogue under the Obama administration and investigated the political campaign of Donald Trump (using a Hillary Clinton funded dossier to get a FISA warrant) to cover up their own misdeeds and stay out of jail.

He said the “express purpose” of Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation was to create “a gigantic distraction.”

Milking donors: ADF's license plate controversy

Alliance Defending Freedom, the Christianist law firm, is a hate group. If the Southern Poverty Law Center ceased operations tomorrow, ADF would still be a hate group. ADF attacks the SPLC ad hominem leaving a simple question unanswered: What does the SPLC have wrong about ADF? ADF should be thankful. Consider how much money they have probably raised off of the SPLC.

No matter how much ADF twists and turns they are guilty of promoting anti-LGBT inequality and hate. That's a fact.

Last December, for example, ADF was trying to undermine LGBT rights internationally and specifically at the United Nations. Shortly after that post they took down their highly offensive “I'm human, right?” website. But the hateful content did exist.

The California chapter of MassResistance is a crazy people magnet

“Did Ms. Lobatos not recognize that a few things were missing among the collection of misfits that comprise MassResistance?”

Shanda Lobatos has joined forces with the hate group MassResistance to persecute LGBT kids in Anaheim, CA.

MassResistance, an anti-LGBT hate group has an odd post on their website titled: MassResistance parent derails big “transgender” push in California elementary school district. They are detailing something from 2017 in Anaheim, California that did not really occur. The post is without attribution but is probably the handiwork of Arthur Schaper (pronounced “shopper”).

Arthur Christopher Schaper, an anti-immigrant activist, formed the California chapter of MassResistance in 2016. Schaper, an apparently unemployed resident of Torrance, is so abrasive that the Republican Party revoked the charter of Beach Cities Republican Club, of which he is president. He has a reputation in California for disrupting public meetings.

Poor you Mark Creech - We have a record of your vile bigotry

Mark Creech is so wonderful that he is huggable. Mark Creech is the leader of North Carolina's Christian Action League. To deflect from accusations that Creech is irrationally intolerant of LGBTQ people he has written a self-serving diatribe: I Admit It. I Am a Hater. It is incoherent. I will document some of the many instances of Creech's bigotry. First, perhaps this best captures the intent of the current tirade:
Hate can sometimes be the flip-side of love. If one truly loves God passionately, he will also passionately hate what God hates. Hate in this form can be a powerful force for good.
Just one more quote:
If you criticize someone LGBTQ, then you hate that person and the entire LGBTQ community.

In Kansas it was Chris Sevier after all

Zack Ford has an excellent piece on the vile proposed anti-LGBT legislation in Kansas. It makes no sense for me to expand on his good work. Adding some nuance is another matter.

When I heard about Kansas legislative blowhards talking about “parody marriage,” I knew immediately that Chris Sevier had done some convincing. The “marry-my-laptop” disbarred lawyer — “by reason of mental infirmity or illness” seems to be good at selling his anti-LGBT agenda.

Boca Raton and Palm Beach County Conversion "Therapy" Bans Survive Court Challenge

In a 60 page ruling late Wednesday, United States District Court Judge Robin L. Rosenberg denied an injunction requested by two reparative “therapy” practitioners crackpots; Robert W. Otto and Julie H. Hamilton. Had the judge granted the injunction it would have prohibited the City of Boca Raton and Palm Beach County from enforcing their bans on conversion “therapy” for minors.

Liberty Counsel, an anti-LGBT hate group represents the two plaintiffs in the matter.

Judge Rosenberg got right to the point:
