The Staggering Chutzpah and Hypocrisy of Tim Wildmon

The Staggering Chutzpah and Hypocrisy of Tim Wildmon November 19, 2014

The Human Rights Campaign is running a commercial in Mississippi as part of their “All God’s Children” campaign and Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association is challenging the world record for chutzpah and hypocrisy by claiming that the HRC has “declared war on Christians” with the ad.

“There is a war against the Bible in America and a war to marginalize the millions of Americans who believe the Bible,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “HRC is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in outside monies to undermine what Scripture teaches and to insult, denigrate and target those who hold to Scripture. For an organization that claims tolerance, HRC employs deceptive tactics and outright lies to attack those who respectfully disagree with them. This is hardly tolerance.”

The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest homosexual activist organization, has begun running television ads in Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas. Named “Project One America,” the ad campaign is out to change the minds of individuals regarding the nature of homosexuality.

“AFA will not be fooled by this campaign to normalize homosexuality in the southern states,” Wildmon added. “And we hope others won’t be fooled either. The ads are deceptive and meant to mislead. It’s never OK to bully, harass or physically assault homosexual individuals. These ads tell outright lies claiming Bible-believers favor such hateful and violent practices. When you have to lie to make your case, it’s a clear indication your case is devoid of truth.”

Out to change people’s minds? That’s an intolerant attack? Okay, so every time you try to proselytize someone, you’re making an intolerant attack on them, right Tim? And oh yes, the AFA only “respectfully disagrees” with gay people. You know, like when their “director of issues analysis” says that gay people are possessed by demons and are Nazis deliberately trying to destroy America. That’s respectful, right? Meanwhile, this ad, which features nothing more than a mother talking about how much she loves her gay son, is a declaration of war against Christians:


That’s an intolerant attack in the view of the AFA. Calling all gay people child molesters? That’s just teaching God’s Truth, of course.

    It is obviously insulting, denigrating and targeting those who hold to Scripture to talk about loving a demon-possessed, child-molesting, Nazi son.

  • Kevin Kehres

    50 years from now, the Christian right will claim to have invented homosexuality.,

    When you have to lie to make your case, it’s a clear indication your case is devoid of truth.

    I agree with Tim Wildmon. Now if only he would apply this idea consistently…

    There are times I’m not sure whether someone’s being purposefully dishonest or staggeringly ignorant, but in Tim Wildmon’s case I might have to say both. He’s like a Bullshit Singularity.

    The right-wing bigots have indeed promoted bullying and violence against gay people. The anti-gay crowd will never admit this because they are relentlessly deceitful cowards who don’t want to be seen inciting violence.

    The right wing is obsessed with proclaiming that they possess some small bit of human compassion which as far as I can tell is totally absent.

    I may have to stop reading Ed. I’m coming to hate those asswipes on the far right and that’s not a good thing.
