Focus on the Family: Christians Are Becoming 'Slaves' to Pro-LGBT Equality 'Tyrants' - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-04 at 9.45.04 AM

In a new video about the "unhealthy, modern" separation of church and state, Focus on the Family's CitizenLink host Stuart Shepard uses some recent examples of anti-gay discrimination, such as the Colorado baker who refused service to a gay couple, to claim that pro-LGBT laws have created the 'tyrant' government preying on religious liberties that our Founding Fathers warned about.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. Yes, playing the victim card! This is another fictional non-issue created by the right wing because basically they have nothing left as the LGBT community gains equality and equal rights.....

  4. They really need to be careful of the "slave" term around certain groups of gay men.

    Just sayin'.

  6. They've oppressed LGBT's for centuries and now they claim it was US oppressing them all along?

  11. We've heard all this many times before.

  12. he's got a very broad definition of "church," extending it to bakers and photographers. if that baker were considered church, he wouldn't have to pay any taxes on his business. but he does have to pay those taxes because he is not a church in the eyes of the federal government, state governments or municipal governments. they've all weighed in on this long ago.

  13. He's basing his argument on the erroneous assumption that his ability to practice his religion requires the freedom to deny civil and human rights to groups of people he doesn't like. (If it weren't GLBT people, it would surely be someone else, such as women or religious minorities.) It's a flawed argument, one that crumbles under even the weakest scrutiny.

  14. His sickening point of view is everywhere invalidated by the majority of sensible and humane Christians who welcome gay people in their lives and congregations. Real Christians would have nothing to do with him and his ilk.

  15. Having just driven across the state of North Dakota I found that half the FM radio stations in the western part of the state are christian stations. Most of their content is filled with people crying about how Xtians are being prosecuted everywhere...EVERYWHERE!!!

    I never thought I would see the day that people brainwash themselves.

  16. Violation of existing anti discrimination laws they are spinning into faux Christian oppression and victimization.

  17. If anything, the LGB's are becoming slaves to the Trannies.

  19. He decries government interference in religion and then argues that the solution is _less_ separation of Church and State? He's confused. He would be very unhappy with what he's asking for. If Church/State separation dissolved in the U.S., then every tenet of faith would be up for a vote, and the result would be the law. The state religion wouldn't be *his* faith. It would be some bland amalgam of beliefs that don't offend the majority.

    What he wants is supremacy of one's individual beliefs over law—also known as Anarchy.

  21. Can someone please show me a Christian homophobic man who isn't some closet case whose main issue is he would not stand a chance hooking up with a good looking guy?

  22. just like when Blacks and Jews made the KKK slaves. right?

    Posted by: Little Kiwi | Aug 4, 2014 12:30:21 PM


  23. @LITTLE KIWI, this is why SCOTUS gutted our Voting Rights Act, if you recall. The tyranny of the blacks was such that no one could vote against the VRA without becoming unelectable, which apparently made it undemocratic. I'm being sarcastic, but this was essentially Scalia's argument.

    Posted by: JJ | Aug 4, 2014 12:36:45 PM


  24. Scalia is merely determined to have his gravestone be a place for future generations to urinate on.
