Democrat on Phoenix (AZ) City Council Condemns LGBT Rights While Speaking to Local Pastors

Over the past couple of months, the Phoenix (Arizona) City Council has been mired in a debate about whether or not to keep invocations at their meetings.

The girls ended up losing the game.


I don’t have any sympathy for this coach, and I’ll explain why in a moment, but look at how he’s trying to spin the situation:

Christian Right Leader: Secular Humanism is Satanic

When your ideological opponent mischaracterizes your beliefs in an attempt to trash you, you know their criticism isn’t worth listening to. But what else would you expect from the bigots who keep saying people choose to be gay?

American Family Association President Tim Wildmon said in a 2015 talk that Secular Humanism was Satanic. Somehow.

Because the people who don’t believe in a God are totally led by the Devil…
