One of the more ridiculous things the anti-gay bigots do constantly is borrow the language of their critics. It isn’t bigots who bully, it’s the opponents of bigots that are bullying them. Now the World Congress of Families has launched a petition accusing the Human Rights Campaign of being hateful by quoting their own hateful bigotry toward gay people.
The grossly misnamed Human Rights Campaign (HRC) issued a so-called ‘report’ titled “The Export of Hate” that is nothing but an intentionally misleading, hate-filled attack on individuals and organizations and Christians who oppose their agenda of forcing a redefinition of marriage in America, and throughout the world. The ‘report’ has enjoyed some attention among uncritical, leftist online media outlets.
As is their custom, the HRC cites long-discredited and ideologically partisan sources such as the Southern Poverty Law Center to give apparent credibility to their hate-filled invective. They also intentionally misrepresent facts, twisting them beyond recognition to justify the charge that somehow supporting marriage as the union of one man and one woman around the world is wrong.
Several individuals associated with the World Congress of Families including Larry Jacobs, Janice Crouse and Brian Brown were singled out by HRC in their report. The HRC says World Congress of Families is part of a “network of American extremists who are working tirelessly to undercut LGBT people around the world,” people who spread “venomous rhetoric, outrageous theories and discredited science.”
Yeah, and? That accusation is 100% accurate. These people are still calling for the criminalization of homosexuality, they’ve publicly supported the Russian law that imprisons people merely for advocating for equality and barbaric laws in Uganda and Nigeria that have resulted in massive human rights abuses and anti-gay witch hunts. They routinely accuse gay people of being demon-possessed pedophiles intentionally trying to destroy America, the family and even civilization itself. If this isn’t venomous rhetoric and outrageous theories, we might as well retire those words from the language entirely. Quoting their hatred is not hatred, for crying out loud.
