Scott Lively goes nuclear in Moldova

Scott Lively said once that his work in Uganda was like "a nuclear bomb against the gay agenda." In January, he went nuclear-style to Moldova to oppose an anti-discrimination law. Radio Free Europe has the story:When the Moldovan government submitted a draft antidiscrimination law to parliament last month, conservative Orthodox Christian forces in the country treated it as a call to battle.And that call was heeded by U.S. pastor and lawyer Scott Lively, who traveled to Chisinau to warn the … [Read more...]

Rachel Maddow on David Kato’s murder

Rachel Maddow adds commentary to the controversy over David Kato's murder.Those close to Kato have told me that Kato did not pay prostitutes and that the scenario developing around him is implausible.

MassResistance links to Anti-Homosexuality Bill then misleads readers about it

Earlier today, anti-gay group MassResistance posted a link to the Anti-Homosexuality Bill and then misled their readers about what is in it. In a message to supporters, MassResistance said this about the Ugandan bill:* The proposed Ugandan law that has liberals here in America so incensed proposed harsh punishments for those who knowingly expose people to AIDS and adults who seduce children or people with mental disabilities into homosexual sex acts. It's not far out of line with most people's … [Read more...]

World Net Daily hearts the Pink Swastika

In a given month, World Net Daily numbers page views in the millions; I number mine in the thousands. So I know that repeating the critique of the Pink Swastika will not reach the number of people now misled by WND but here goes anyway...WND has a superstore with an apparently spanking new edition of Scott Lively's The Pink Swastika in it. WND site owner Joseph Farah gives a shout out to TPS without addressing any of the criticisms. He says he has read all of the criticism, but he attributes … [Read more...]

The SPLC hate list and the Nazi card

Last week, the Southern Poverty Law Center published several articles devoted to identifying groups who perpetuate stereotypes and falsehoods about gays. In one of the articles, the SPLC articulated a list of ten myths about gays which they claimed the groups identified as hate groups willfully promote. Elsewhere, the SPLC updated the list of what they term anti-gay hate groups, adding several groups, some of which are well known social conservative organizations.The reaction was slow but has … [Read more...]
