Josh Duggar: I Fight Non-Discrimination Laws Because LGBT People Deserve “Love and Respect”

The Duggar family will not shut up about how much they hate LGBT people, but they’re not brave enough to admit it.

While guest-hosting a program put on by the anti-LGBT Family Research Council, Pastor Richard Land spoke with Josh Duggar (below), one of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” darlings and now an FRC employee.

Duggar and his family recently spearheaded a movement to overturn a nondiscrimination bill in Fayetteville, Arkansas, which would have protected LGBT people from discrimination in employment, housing and public affairs. Since before the measure was even introduced, his family has served as the face of the anti-equality movement in Arkansas, perhaps best characterized by a robocall from matriarch Michelle Duggar comparing transgender people to sexual predators.

Here’s the clip of Land interviewing Duggar:

Why Would Anyone Vandalize a Nativity Scene Like This?

Sacred Hearts Roman Catholic Church in Massachusetts, like many other churches, has a Nativity scene on its property. They don’t get any taxpayer money to do it.

Muslim Families in India Say They Were Tricked Into Becoming Hindus With Promises of Food and Schooling

Earlier this month, says the Washington Post,

[M]ore than 50 impoverished Muslim families in a slum in the northern Indian city of Agra attended a simple but controversial ceremony at which they were asked by a Hindu priest to chant and throw offerings into the holy fire in front of some Hindu idols. The priest then welcomed the Muslims into the Hindu fold.

Some Muslims in the neighborhood of trash collectors told local reporters that it was all a fraud. They said that a Hindu activist had assured them that by attending the ceremony, they will get the government’s coveted “below-poverty-line” identity card and access to state welfare assistance in health and education.

Right-Winger: Gay Kids Are Recruiting Vulnerable Christian Kids to LGBT Clubs and Ruining Their Lives

You know how LGBT people try to *recruit* others to join them in spreading the gay agenda?

*crickets chirp*

Apparently, “gay clubs” in public schools do the same thing. And word on the street is they target Christian kids.

You remember infamous pastor/politician Gordon Klingenschmitt, who claims that LGBT people want to execute Christians and that Obamacare causes cancer. He recently welcomed Brian Camenker, of the anti-gay group MassResistance, onto his program “Pray In Jesus Name” to discuss how gay kids are ruining education as we know it.

Here’s their conversation, from a video collected by Right Wing Watch:
