Having a gay brother, perhaps I am biased. Favoring equal rights for all people must be some sort of family tie I have. Nevertheless, the hate-mongering on the right against homosexuals never seems to cease.
http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/f … osexuality Bastardizing Martin Luther King Jr. like that is absurd.
Also, a wonderful pastor promoting hatred of your own children if they happen to be gay is causing controversy. http://www.goodasyou.org/good_as_you/20 … agenc.html The emotional scars of the gay children in that congregation should move anyone to oppose what this bigot is saying.
Sunlight is a great disinfectant. People won't change if they don't see what's happening.
You said it all right here! Those people want the spotlight for their outrageous utterances, but they sure hate to have their true natures exposed.
That is too bad. Most of America is sick of them and a great cheer goes up when one more is exposed as a hateful and psycopathic monster. I want to know why that pastor is not under arrest or investigation. He has no right to advocate or use religion to order others to commit violence against children.
Equal rights for all should be the norm. Pandering to religious bigots is never a good thing. Some of the most interesting, well educated people I know are gay.
Not to be crass and dismissive on a topic that certainly bears great consideration, and indeed is an important issue today, but I don't find bastardizing Martin Luther King to be all that wrong. You know, considering how many women he tried to have a bastardized child with other than his wife. Ah, how I love random Irony. Seriously, though, I do tend to agree, the hate-mongering is just a bit silly.
It's called divide and rule. Keep the peasants all fighting with each other such that they will never think why.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr. Is he right? What are your thoughts
