How dishonest is this hate group?

The folks at American Family Association, an anti-LGBT hate group, hold themselves out as Christian moralists. However, when it serves their purposes, particularly in service to the disparagement of LGBT people, AFA personnel will lie through their teeth. I touched on this Tuesday. I received yet another email from AFA and some additional information Wednesday morning.

Wednesday's email from AFA is titled: One company to boycott this Christmas. It is signed by Hate Group Leader Tim Wildmon. As you might have guessed the company AFA wants people to boycott is Target Corp. AFA has been at this for a few years now and the boycott hasn't made so much as a dent in Target's revenues. That is less relevant than the deceit.

AFA must need money - It's Target time again - UPDATED

Were I to confuse correlation with causation I might claim that American Family Association's silly boycott of Target Corp. has been beneficial to the company. Earnings are up, dividends are up and guidance is up. Target (NYSE:TGT) is expected to report strong third quarter results next week.

AFA, an anti-LGBT hate group, is still digging in. I suppose that it still brings in the sheaves.

The only thing "absurd," Michael Brown, is the idiotic argument

It might seem relatively harmless in its abject stupidity. Yet, what Brown is promoting is bigotry and ignorance.

Some people think that people of faith are stupid. I am not one of those but Dr. Michael Brown might cause me to change my mind. Late Monday Brown wrote: Man wanting courts to make him 20 years younger highlights absurdity of transgender claim.
The only absurdity is the comparison
Michael Brown is fond of rhetorical questions:
You knew it had to happen sooner or later. After all, if a biological, chromosomal male who identifies as "female" can have his birth certificate changed to female, why can’t a 69-year-old man who feels like he’s 49 have his age legally changed?

"Boy Erased" is scaring the crap out of some people

Larry Tomczak
Larry Tomczak is determined to convince everyone else that conversion therapy is a proven reality.

A great deal of LGBT oppression on behalf of religious conservatives is premised on the effectiveness of conversion therapy. In accounting, when debits and credits are out of balance and when that imbalance is corrected with an arbitrary entry, it is called “a force.” Conversion therapy is a theological force. For religious literalists it claims to prove that their god did not create LGBT people.

A new film — Boy Erased — provides a contrary narrative and a true story. The son of a Baptist preacher is given an ultimatum to either submit to a gay conversion program (after being forcibly outed to his parents) or be forever exiled and shunned. The outcome is quite predictable. The young man stays quite gay.

A teen suffers from extreme bullying in Texas

I urge people to read the entire article at The Dallas Voice, written by Micah Moore.
It happened one day after basketball practice, as students were changing in the locker room, the same day Matthew sank the shot from mid-court.

According to Matthew, two students grabbed him and tried to hold him down. He managed to break free. But one of the boys grabbed him from behind and started dry-humping him while another student grabbed his face, telling him, “You looked beautiful today” and calling him “faggot.”

HateSiteNews

This offensive photo is part of an article on LifeSiteNews objecting to transgender accommodations in Sarasota, Florida schools. It dishonestly depicts a transgender school girl as an adult male who poses a threat to the little girl in the adjoining stall. 
The Southern Poverty Law Center no longer lists hate sites as hate groups. If the SPLC resumed that practice then LifeSiteNews.com would surely be included.

LifeSiteNews is an ultra-orthodox Catholic operation. I get faith. I really do. While I am not a believer I am not wed to the notion that people of faith are either stupid or pernicious. Orthodoxy diminishes critical thinking but that does not connote evil intent independent of actual malevolent conduct.
