If We Take Down The Confederate Flag, We Must Also Ban the “Gay Reich” Rainbow One, Says Bryan Fischer

You’ve no doubt heard the current debate about the morality of flying the Confederate flag in the United States, particularly the one on the State House grounds in South Carolina, the state in which Dylann Roof murdered nine people at a historic Black church last week.

As communities mourn those whose lives were taken in Charleston and now tackle the matter of a historically oppressive flag during tragic circumstances, American Family Association pundit Bryan Fischer has the audacity to declare that the rainbow flag is also a symbol of “slavery and oppression” and that it, too, should be taken down.

Judge Tosses California Lawyer’s Ballot Initiative Calling For Mass Execution of All Gays

Remember that guy in California who filed a ballot initiative (that came to be known as the “Sodomite Suppression Act“) requesting the mass execution of all gay people?

For only $200, Orange County lawyer Matthew McLaughlin filed a ballot initiative back in March with the following instructions:

Gays Are Setting the World On Fire, According to Janet Porter and Mike Huckabee

Happy Pride Month, fellow uncontrollable arsonists! May your alternative lifestyle glow with the fire of a thousand blazing freedoms.

I’m paraphrasing Janet Porter, the president of conservative Christian group Faith2Action, in a video excerpt from the anti-LGBT documentary Light Wins. This one in particular is about how LGBT people are ruining the country by supposedly shutting down businesses run by vocal opponents of equality. Mike Huckabee makes an appearance, too.

One Conversion Therapy Story: “I Was Told Every Other Gay Person on Earth Had Been Executed”

The fight over anti-LGBT conversion therapy is heating up and, as a result, we’re seeing more and more personal accounts emerging from LGBT people who have actually had to endure the practice. It seems like each story is more vile than the one before it, but this next retelling might take the cake.

Sam Brinton (below) is a spokesperson for the National Center for Lesbian Rights who speaks often about his childhood experience with conversion therapy. Cracked (stay with me here) recently featured his story in a post called “5 Things I Learn At A ‘Pray Away the Gay’ Camp.”

Sam’s family first sent him to “ex-gay” camp when he was 11 and realized he had a crush on a male friend. Here’s what the supposed therapy was like:

The Regnerus Gay Parenting Study Is Even More Flawed Than We Thought

As they gear up for legal battles nationwide, anti-LGBT activists’ weapon of choice is the infamous “Regnerus study,” a report by University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus that claimed to “prove” same-sex parenting is inherently harmful to children. The study has been thoroughly debunked as methodologically and ethically flawed, and experts far and wide — including Regnerus’ own university — have said they want no affiliation with it.

We thought we’d seen it all, but nope — two sociologists are taking another crack at determining the study’s scientific validity (or lack thereof), and what they’re finding is even more absurd than the fallacies we were already aware of.

Indiana University’s Brian Powell and the University of Connecticut’s Simon Cheng actually redid the study for Social Science Research, the same journal that published the original article. Not surprisingly, when they used proper methodology and eliminated “suspect data” — see below for a laughable example — they found that kids fare just as well when raised by a same-sex couple as by a mom and dad.
