GA Governor's Appointee Calls For Culture War Over Gay Marriage: VIDEO

PhilKent

Phil Kent, appointed in 2011 to Georgia's Immigration Review Board by Governor Nathan Deal, made some incendiary statements yesterday on a local political round-table show discussing last week's decisions handed down by the Supreme Court. Referring to DOMA in particular, Kent lamented that the ruling in United States v. Windsor will "dynamite the foundations of our Judeo-Christian system," further asserting, “it will be a cultural war in Georgia and every other state to try to undo this wrong." Kent added, "it's an insult to equate that [gay marriage] with traditional marriage," claiming, “you can have a civil union and take care of all these sob stories.”  He went on to suggest it was offensive to draw comparisons between the struggles for civil rights faced by African Americans and those faced by LGBT Americans. He also equated the values of the left with those of pagans.

Kent has previously come under criticism for his remarks on race and immigration, being labeled a bigot, an extremist and anti-immigration. You can check out more of his remarks here.

Congressman Wants Schools To Teach Gender Stereotypes Early To Prevent Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-06-20 at 5.25.46 PM

In a speech Monday, Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) used Father's Day as a platform to push for gender stereotypes to be taught to American youths in grade school. That way, they can understand the roles of mothers and fathers and of the importance of only allowing opposite-sex couples to marry. Think Progress reports:

Gingrey stressed his continued support for the Defense of Marriage Act - which defines marriage as only a union between a man and a women - and suggested that children need to be carefully taught about the traditional roles of their genders.

"You know, maybe part of the problem is we need to go back into the schools at a very early age, maybe at the grade school level, and have a class for the young girls and have a class for the young boys and say, you know, this is what's important. This is what a father does that is maybe a little different, maybe a little bit better than the talents that a mom has in a certain area. And the same thing for the young girls, that, you know, this is what a mom does, and this is what is important from the standpoint of that union which we call a marriage."

Previously, ThinkProgress ranked Gingrey as one of the 7 most anti-gay U.S. Representatives.

Georgia Pastor Gets Standing Ovation for Kicking Boy Scouts Out of Church: VIDEO

Easley

A Marietta, Georgia church kicked out Boy Scouts Troop 204 after the organization said they were accepting gay scouts and Roswell Street Baptist Church Senior Pastor Ernest Easley said he got a standing ovation from his congregation when he made the announcement, WSBTV reports:

Easley said his congregation gave him a standing ovation when he announced his decision to no longer sponsor the troop, which has been meeting at the church for 68 years. He said the stance the Boy Scouts has taken is not only contrary to the word of God, but it puts young people at risk.

"You've got boys in there in a tent that are sexually attractive to other boys, whose hormones are going off the wall. Something is going to happen," Easley said.

Another church, Unity North Atlanta Church in Marietta, has already offered the evicted scout troop a home.

Tblisi_Game

Yesterday we reported on a Facebook game in which Orthodox Christians destroy gay activists with stools which appeared to be modeled after recent real-life attacks on Gay Pride marchers in Tblisi, Georgia.

A Facebook spokesman tells Towleroad that they have disabled the game app:

"We take action against apps that violate our platform policies as laid out here: https://developers.facebook.com/policy/, in order to maintain a trustworthy experience for users."

Remember the violent attack by thousands of Orthodox Christians on Gay Pride marchers in Tblisi, Georgia last month?

It's now a game on Facebook.

Watch a demo of the app, AFTER THE JUMP...

Gay Gamer writes:

In Call of Taburetka, or Call of the Stool, players control a stool-wielding priest as they beat their way through hordes of LGBT activists, flying homosexuals, and evacuation buses. The priest seems to magically float up and down the screen, endless shooter style, firing stools at the oncoming queers. The more gays and vehicles you take down the higher your score goes.

Thousands of People Attack Gay Pride Marchers in Tblisi, Georgia: More VIDEO

2_tblisi

This morning I posted some horrific clips of thousands of people attacking Gay Pride marchers in Tblisi, Georgia who had been protected by police before being shipped from the area in buses that were surrounded and assaulted with fists and objects.

At least 17 people have been injured in the violence, Radio Free Europe reports.

One of the antigay activists, Zaza Davitaia, explained why he was against the rally taking place.

"I give my support to those who are gathered here. We are against a rally that contradicts our Georgian morals and traditions," Davitaia said. "[Gay-rights campaigners] receive financial support from some organizations abroad and they wanted to hold a demonstration against Georgian morals."

There were many Orthodox priests among the antigay demonstrators. One of them, Reverend Ioanne, said he wanted to stop LGBT activists from furthering their agenda.

"It's unacceptable in any way, especially today," he said. "It's a plan by some forces, who test our patience, to force us to make a mistake so they can act according to their program."

Twelve were hospitalized, according to Amnesty, including three police officers and a journalist.
