The Religious Right loves to say that liberals are intolerant of their bigotry:
“Unfortunately, their response is typical of intolerant homosexual activists,” [Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver] continued. “They will go to any lengths to silence the majority of Americans who believe that children do best when raised in a natural family with one mom and one dad.”
Right, we’re silencing their free speech. We’re taking away their rights. We’re the oppressors.
Slacktivist has a wonderful, simple response to that:
Anybody claiming to believe that the freedom to speak against homosexuality is somehow under threat has to explain how such claims could possibly be compatible with the continuing freedom of the deliberately obnoxious Fred Phelps.
That needs to be posterized.
