The Religious Right’s Continuing War Agains Civil Rights

TODAY: FRC, ADF, Military Chaplains to Hold News Conference Opposing Possible Overturning of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

Rather than openly acknowledge the presence and contributions of gays in the military the Family Research Council wants the military to keep their heads in the sand and pretend they don’t exist.  They want to continue to demonize, dehumanize and ostracize gays from society.  In the 30 or so years that the gay rights movement has been around I have never once been accosted, had my marriage threatened or injured in any way by a homosexual.  In fact, the gays that I have known have been some of  the kindest, and most caring people I have met.  I can’t say the same thing for a great many of the christians I have known.

    I’m with you on this one. The LGBTQ community is by and large, wonderful. I’m not sure what some people find so frightening. It’s sad that people can get so angry over love.

    An anecdote from The Advocate: “Soldiers who are not afraid of guns, bombs, capture, torture or death say they are afraid of homosexuals. Clearly we should not be used as soldiers; we should be used as weapons.”
