I am so tired of this straight pride bullshit. If you have not suffered for your sexuality what have you overcome to be proud of?

Anti-LGBTQ Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Now Leads U.S. Religious Freedom Group

Anti-LGBTQ Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Now Leads U.S. Religious Freedom Group

Tony Perkins, the leader of the anti-LGBTQ hate group Family Research Council, is now the head of a legitimate government organization dedicated to religious freedom.

Perkins, who once said religious liberties don’t apply to Muslims, was appointed by GOP Sen. Mitch McConnell last year to serve as a member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, which has done important work in the past. (For example, they periodically release a report on blasphemy laws around the world.)

It’s hard to imagine Perkins will suddenly put aside his Christian Nationalist desires and advocates for the rights of Muslims and atheists the same way he does conservative Christians. He doesn’t even do that in the U.S. Why would he suddenly be a global leader in the matter? For all its flaws, the Southern Poverty Law Centerhas a solid writeup of why Perkins is problematic with plenty of evidence to back up their “extremist” designation:

Perkins has a sordid political history, having once purchased Klansman David Duke’s mailing list for use in a Louisiana political campaign he was managing. In 2001, Perkins gave a speech to a Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a white supremacist group…Since joining the FRC, Perkins has taken the group in a harder anti-LGBT direction, using it to publish false propaganda about that community and contending that gay rights advocates intend to round up Christians in “boxcars.”

As the leader of a Christian supremacist group that weaponizes religion against the LGBTQ community and regularly attacks religious minorities as un-American, Tony Perkins is unqualified to serve as a commissioner or in any other capacity at the USCIRF, let alone to lead it.

Perkins has spent his career advocating a dangerous, distorted, and discriminatory vision of “religious liberty” that only protects orthodox Christians and leads an organization that supports abusing LGBTQ children with conversion therapy at home and enforcing the death penalty for LGBTQ people abroad.

 

Another Christian politician putting his bible before laws to get rid of the “queers”.

AL GOP Official: “Freaking Queers Have Gotten Too Much Sympathy”

AL GOP Official: “Freaking Queers Have Gotten Too Much Sympathy”

Responding to a Facebook post about a Christian baker who wouldn’t make a gender transition cake for a customer, Mobile County Treasurer Phil Benson wrote in a now-deleted comment that he supported the baker because “Freaking queers have gotten too much sympathy. A real abomination.”

He also said the customer to “move to a place he is wanted.”

An interview with a local NBC affiliate involved him defending his bigotry and telling the reporter to read a Bible.

“Do you understand, though, how your words can be offensive to gay people or to anybody?” asked NBC 15’s Andrea Ramey.

“And gay people are offensive to me. Do you understand that?” replied Benson.

“All gay people, just because they’re gay, are offensive to you?” asked Ramey.

They can be very offensive. All this beautiful rainbow stuff. When one of our presidents lit the White House with wonderful rainbow colors that offended me,” replied Benson.

Benson initially insisted before he would do an interview that Ramey sit down in his office and read chapter 19 in the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible, which is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. That passage has been used as the biblical condemnation of homosexuality.

He’s pointing to a biblical clobber verse while having the audacity to whine about how gay people get too much sympathy. Maybe he would understand why that is if politicians spoke about Christians the way he speaks about gay people.

Because this is Alabama, his remarks received only a perfunctory rebuke from the state GOP.

Alabama Republican Chairman Terry Lathan said, “Mr. Benson’s comments represent his own personal opinion. I find them to be unnecessary, divisive and reflect solely on himself.”

Notice that Lathan doesn’t say Benson is wrong. The Alabama Republican Party agrees with everything he said; they just don’t want to say it in an official capacity. Their focus is on passing anti-LGBTQ laws.

Low lights. Haters calling for the death of LGBTQ+ They make the most horrible accusations that are not based in reality.

Evangelicals are hateful bigots; that they are so immersed in Republican politics and fighting the culture war that they are blind to or don’t care how their words and actions are perceived.

Pastor Who Works for TN Police Dept. Says Gays Should Be Executed By Police

This is a fascist take over of government by religion.  When they get done coming for the LGBTQ+ they will come for all the rest who do not worship the hateful vengeance smiting god they do.   Ready for Christian Sharia laws?   Hugs

Pastor Who Works for TN Police Dept. Says Gays Should Be Executed By Police

Last week, Pastor Greg Fritts did what so many of these nasty pastors (Nastors?) do and said the Bible calls for the execution of LGBTQ people at the hands of the government.

… The Bible says that they’re worthy of death. The Bible says that the government — somebody stands up, “Oh, I’m LGBTQ” — here’s how it should work: It shouldn’t work where we go out and we enforce the laws, because the Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God, and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT freaks and arrest them and have a trial for them and if they are convicted than they are to be put to death.

Do you understand that? It is a capital crime that should be carried out by our government. Not Christians… unless you’re a policeman, you know what I mean? If you’re a policeman, then you know what? It should be your responsibility to carry these things out

Oh, by the way, Fritts works for a police department.

No wonder he laughed as he talked about how the police should be executing gay people.

These pastors always say they’re speaking in hypotheticals — about what the Bible says we ought to do — and that they are not inciting their congregations to kill gay people. But considering the people who attend these churches have even less of a reason to hold back, it won’t be long before one of them takes matters into his own hands.

For a law enforcement official to brag about how law enforcement officials have a biblical right to murder gay people is truly frightening. No LGBTQ person should feel safe when this is the sort of person Knox County hires to protect them.

Massacre at Pulse Nightclub…

Another Christian hate cult wants to kill LGBTQ and cheered doing it in Florida if demonstrators against them show up.

Christian Hate-Preachers Are Hosting a “Make America Straight Again” Event

Christian Hate-Preachers Are Hosting a “Make America Straight Again” Event

This Friday, a group of New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (NIFB) preachers will be hosting a “Make America Straight Again” conference, spreading their anti-LGBTQ bigotry in the name of Christ.

The speakers include all kinds of despicable human beings.

There’s Steven Anderson, who celebrated the massacre as soon as it happened because there were “50 less pedophiles in this world.” He added that he’s “not gonna sit here and cry about it and say it’s a tragedy, because it’s not.” He’s also said if he could push a button and kill every homosexual, he would “push it until it breaks.”

There’s Roger Jimenez, who said the worst thing about the massacre was that the shooter “didn’t finish the job.” He also longed for the government to round up all the gay people, “put them up against a firing wall, put a firing squad in front of them, and blow their brains out.”

There’s Tommy McMurtry, who wishes we could go back to the time when society put gay people in their place: “six feet under.”

McMurtry also told his congregation that he hoped people would protest the MASA conference because it might get violent, and that could be a pretense for attendees to hurt or murder gay people.

… Pray that if they do any protests, that it gets violent. They have “Stand Your Ground” in Florida. So we’re allowed to fight back. So… I say “bring it!”

There’s Bruce Mejia, who says LGBTQ stands for “Let God Burn Them Quickly” and who thinks just preaching against gay people isn’t enough.

… we believe they should be put to death. They should die! And I will never grieve over a sodomite that is killed or that is put to death or any other way that they die, I will never grieve for that. In fact, I will rejoice over that.

Any wonder why I don’t by the “god is love” bullshit these people spew?   But when they are done going after the LGBTQ they will come for any others who don’t follow their version of religion and being holy god butt kissers.   This crap is pure hate speech and incitement to violence.   But the Republicans wont pass any anti-discrimination laws that protect LGBTQ+.   Guess they agree with these guys.   Hugs

Christians pushing their religion in schools on your children and making taxpayers pay if they are sued

Alabama’s Bible-in-School Bill Would Break the Law Before Classes Even Begin

Alabama’s Bible-in-School Bill Would Break the Law Before Classes Even Begin

Like several other Republican-dominated states using the Project Blitz playbook, Alabama is on the verge of passing a “Bible literacy” bill.

American Atheists puts that in English:

… SB 14 encourages teachers to discuss the Bible as a source of morality and public policy. It also allows schools to display “religious materials” like crosses during certain classes. Under SB 14, parents can’t sue the school districts if teachers try to indoctrinate children, a provision that blatantly violates parents’ and students’ First Amendment rights.

“Just like Alabama’s abortion ban, this ‘Bible class’ bill is a clear challenge to constitutional precedent,” said Alison Gill, American Atheists’ Vice President for Legal and Policy. “This bill is so extreme it even encourages school districts and teachers to break the law and proselytize, since it claims to shield them from legal responsibility.”

In theory, there’s nothing in this bill preventing a teacher from putting Christian crosses all over the classroom the way you might see the letters of the alphabet in a grade school.

That last statement is huge, too. The bill calls for neutrality, but if teachers break that rule and proselytize, the school district will never have to pay a price for it. If there’s a lawsuit that results in a payout for the plaintiffs, the bill says it’ll be covered by state taxpayers.

If you’re a school district, then, what’s stopping you from finding a pastor with teaching credentials to run the classes no differently from Sunday school? You literally have nothing to lose.

TN Christian Prosecutor: Gay People Don’t Deserve Domestic Violence Protections

Again a religious ideologue who pushed his way into political position to force his religious views on everyone.   He doesn’t care about the law, only his religion.   He doesn’t see the hypocrisy of claiming those his religion disagrees with as “special rights” while demanding special rights for his religion.   I am not a hateful person, I am not an angry person, but after 50 years of this same fight I struggle not to react with anger and hate with these people.  Hugs

TN Christian Prosecutor: Gay People Don’t Deserve Domestic Violence Protections

According to a sermon he gave at the 2018 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference — but which is only getting attention now — Northcott was explaining the difficulties he faced as a result of the marriage equality decision by the Supreme Court. One of them was the decision of whether to prosecute a case of assault as “domestic violence” — a charge that carries a greater possible punishment — when the couple in question was in a same-sex marriage.

… the social engineers on the Supreme Court decided that we now have homosexual marriage. I disagree with them. What do I do with domestic assaults?… The reason that there’s [enhanced] punishment on domestic [violence] is to recognize and protect the sanctity of marriage. And I said there’s no marriage to protect. So I don’t prosecute them as domestics.

He told the crowd that decisions like this were precisely why they should always “elect a good Christian DA.” It’s hard to make sense of that since his theology overrides the law. That means he has no business being in a position where his job is to prosecute people who break the rules. The law means nothing if you think your religion gives you permission to break the rules — or, in this case, not apply them.

How can you dismiss the Supreme Court as activist judges when you yourself refuse to follow the law because you just don’t feel like it?

 

Alabama Mayor Defends Rant About the Need to “Kill” LGBTQ People and Liberals

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, Gender, Hate, Health, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 06:20

It is not enough for them to define us out of existence, they want us dead.   They do not see LGBTQ as people, as humans.  Just as white supremacists don’t think people of other skin tones are humans either.  We are the other.  Once you do that then it is OK to kill the non-human other.  To own them, to deny them rights, to mistreat them.  This is religion at its finest .  

Alabama Mayor Defends Rant About the Need to “Kill” LGBTQ People and Liberals

Mark Chambers, the mayor of Carbon Hill, Alabama, said in a Facebook post that the only solution to stopping certain groups — including LGBTQ people, those who are pro-choice, and Socialists — from getting “more rights than the majority” would be “to kill the problem out. I know it’s bad to say but without killing them out there’s no way to fix it.”

Notice in the article that his fear is minorities getting more rights than the majority. The reality is that LGBTQ people and others just want equal treatment. But neutrality is blasphemy to people like Chambers.

The best thing about the segment is hearing Chambers say someone else made the comments, only to have reporter Brittany Dionne tell him they’re on the same Facebook page that includes pictures of his family.

Only in Alabama can a mayor threaten to kill LGBTQ people and it’s still not the worst thing elected officials have done in the past month.

Pride month and fascism

I just have read several news articles where Republican politicians in places of power have increased pressure on all venues to stop any and all pride events.  They threaten to use all the power of their position to negatively effect any venue that allows a pride event to be held.  This is clearly fascism, hatred, bigotry, and all of them doing this claim to be Christian.   This is an attack on our secular nation.  Hugs
