With end times close at hand, anti-gay Christians are falling over each other comparing LGBT activists to terrorists, reports Right Wing Watch.

Upping the game on Wednesday was our old friend Mat Staver of listed hate group Liberty Counsel, who said that dealing with gay rights activists “is like dealing with terrorists, negotiating with people who have a zero-sum game and they don’t want you to exist.”

Staver continued that the LGBT community won’t stop until it receives “special, protected, preferred status. If they get that” he warned, “boy are they going to come and hammer you hard with it.”

“Their agenda doesn’t stop until they are completely dominating anybody who ultimately does not not only agree but promote and affirm their lifestyle. Their agenda will not stop, it will ultimately result in fines and prosecution. This is an intolerant agenda.

"It is like the Palestinians and the Israelis: the Palestinians in Gaza don’t like the Jews to exist in the land, so no matter how much land you give them for so-called peace, it doesn’t really satisfy them. There is no satisfying this radical agenda, they don’t want you to exist. If you do exist, they want you to promote and applaud their sinful lifestyle.”

Irish Senator Says Same-Sex Marriage Referendum Money 'Would Be Better Spent On HIV Testing' For Gay Men: VIDEO

Jim Walsh

Irish Senator Jim Walsh has suggested that the money being spent on the May referendum on same-sex marriage would be better used on HIV testing for gay people, reports the Independent.

Walsh resigned from opposition party Fianna Fail last week after attacking sections of the Children and Family Relationships Bill which extends guardianship and adoption rights to same sex couples and others.  The bill passed on Tuesday with 122 amendments. Walsh had tabled a failed amendment calling for IVF methods to be primarily made available to married heterosexual couples.

Following his resignation on May 25th, Walsh said that he could not support Fianna Fail’s stance on sex marriage referendum and legislation allowing gay couples to adopt.

Speaking in government upper house prior to resigning, Walsh said he had recently met a gay man who suggested that government spending in support of same-sex marriage referendum should instead “be used to provide free HIV testing to people who are homosexual, where there’s an increase now in the numbers affected by HIV, it would be far better expenditure of money.”

Earlier this year, Walsh said there are “dangerous, vicious elements within the gay ideological movement”.

Controversy Over Little Big Town 'Lesbian' Country Song Is 'Mostly Fabricated' By The Media: VIDEO

Little Big Town - Girl Crush

According to the Washington Post, a number of radio stations around the United States have been forced to take “Girl Crush” by Grammy nominated Little Big Town out of rotation following complaints that the song is “promoting the gay agenda” - despite the fact the uproar is based on a misinterpretation of the lyrics.

“Girl Crush” is actually a song about a woman envious of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend:

“I want to taste her lips, yeah cause they taste like you / I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume / I want her long blond hair, I want her magic touch / Yeah cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much / I got a girl crush.”

However, Billboard reports that despite headlines declaring that multiple stations are pulling the song, most broadcasters polled said they had received no complaints.

While country music is seen as more progressive now — in November of last year, Billy Gilman came out as gay — there’s a deep chasm between what’s popular on country radio and what fans are actually buying: “Girl Crush” is No. 4 on iTunes, but lags at No. 33 in radio rankings. Further proof is Kacey Musgraves and “Follow Your Arrow,” a song referencing same-sex kissing that racked up awards and sales but struggled to find a radio audience.

Little Big Town vocalist Karen Fairchild is surprised about a controversy which is based around assumptions made by listeners:

“That’s just shocking to me, the close-mindedness of that, when that’s just not what the song was about. But what if it were? It’s just a greater issue of listening to a song for what it is.”

The band’s label recently shot a short commercial to clear up some of the confusion. During the ad, the band introduces the song, while Fairchild explains “it’s about a girl saying, you know, ‘Why do you love her and not me?’"

A Hilarious Look At What It Would Be Like If Straight Guys Had to Come Out to Their Parents Too: VIDEO

Healey

When writer and teacher Josh Healey attended his cousin Naomi's wedding to her girlfriend Lisa, he got to thinking about how "we have this idea in America that folks have to come out to everybody all the time."

"It's like you're not gay until I know that you're gay, and you know that I know that you're gay, then you're gay. Which makes no sense. It makes no sense, so I thought about this as a straight dude. OK, as a mostly straight dude, let's keep it real. I thought about what would it be like if straight folks had to come out too."

Imagining the horror of coming out to his "super liberal" parents as straight, Healey says:

"I don't know how this happened. It didn't just happen, I was born this way. But I tried to fit in, Lord knows I tried. I used to wear purple, I watched Bravo, I went to every Lady Gaga show I could. But no, no. I like Metallica, and bowling, and mom and dad, yes I like women. And I like this one woman, and mom, I want you to meet her, but I'm nervous. There's something you need to know about her first. I'm afraid to tell you, but you need to know. Mom, she's white."

Oklahoma Told a Straight Doctor This Pro-Gay License Plate Request Was Too Sexual: VIDEO

Lgbtaly

A straight Oklahoma City man has been denied a customized license plate supporting the LGBT community, reports KOCO.com.

John keefe oklahoma cityDr. John Keefe II (right, with his wife) filed a request for a vanity plate reading "LGBTALY.” Plates can be a maximum of seven letters.  However, his request was denied because it was “sexual in nature.”

Said Keefe:

“When I am driving around with a license plate that says 'LGBT ally,' it shows to other people, 'Look, I am here for my fellow Oklahomans.’”

Oklahoma Tax Commission spokesperson Paula Ross said that “LGBT” is not on the list of banned words or phrases.

Keefe, who has hired an attorney to appeal the decision, said if his story “reaches just one person, the impact has been made.”

A hearing on the case is expected to take place this summer.
