Towleroad Talking Points: Family Research Council's Hatecast


A look back at today's top stories


Over the weekend the Family Research Council held a webcast event entitled "Stand with Scouts Sunday" that was, for lack of a better term, a hatecast. The event featured a plethora of wingnuts. Rick Perry was on hand to tell viewers that the 'pop culture' of the gays will destroy the Scouts. We do love pop culture. A congressman from Mississippi also spoke about how gays are being "crammed down the Boy Scout's throats." Also here are a couple carefully selected Scouts discussing how gays will likely hit on other Scouts

Pat Robertson doesn't like that people get in trouble for being bigots and believes that gays can change just like murders and rapists. The Archbishops of San Francisco and Rhode Island have warned fellow Catholics against the dangers of attending same-sex weddings. A Catholic school in Wisconsin has rejected a newly appointed president after they heard rumors he is gay, and an Arkansas school district has informed a gay alum that he cannot speak at his alma mater's graduation



A report in The Guardian states that eight European based footballers would like to come out but are afraid of negative reactions from fans. Back stateside, outspoken LGBT ally Chris Kluwe has been cut by the Minnesota Vikings and at least one report lists his activism as the reason for his departure. An all male "semi-strip" club may be coming to the iconic Bank of America building in San Francisco's Castro District. Also watch a pro-gay Illinois Republican face down anti-gay protesters




Simon Cowell was charmed by a drag version of "La Vie en Rose" during a weekend edition of Britain's Got Talent. A group of famous gays got together to record a PSA that warns us against the dangers of anti-gay individuals. Mariah Carey's new and poorly named "#Beautiful" was released today and a male Justin Bieber fan rushed the stage last night in Dubai to hug get a hug from the teen.

  1. I've read that Rick's parents required him to wear a really nasty chastity device when he came into puberty. It had sharp points in it. Most likely due to their religionist beliefs. Just some background info on why he's so twisted today.

  2. Wingnuttery, indeed. On the one hand, it's fun to watch them slowly hang themselves on the petards of their own hateful bigotry. On the other hand, one wonders why they are still around and able to broadcast without retribution the most vile, bigoted and untrue things about LGBTQ people.

    Every evangelical christian dog will have his or her day. May it be very, very soon.
