The hateful, anti-gay rhetoric that is being tossed around like crazy, keeps getting crazier, and bolder.
This tweet I received this morning, names redacted, reports a FaceBook page entitled “Gays should be lined up and Shot”. I do not have a FB account, but this makes me want to get one; and I think I will because this is only the latest I’ve seen of the many, many manifestations of intolerance and hatred being fanned out in public. Ignorance is being perpetuated with intentional false-witness campaigns by the religious right.
The leaders of these well-financed, national Christianist Political Lobbying organizations (who should start paying taxes!) have been coming out full-throttle with public statements regarding the arrest, incarceration, forced “conversion” “therapy”, and even the deportation of openly gay citizens. It is very alarming and they must be called out and called attention to. This is hate speech.
Dominion theology proponents have been creeping into our political system for many years now. Uganda is their societal testing ground for what they would like to see in the United States.
