'Documentary' on Impending Criminalization of Christianity Features a Who's Who of Anti-gay GOP Loons: VIDEO

Gop

Last week, we reported on an upcoming religious "documentary" titled Light Wins: How to Overcome the Criminalization of Christianity detailing the supposed persecution of Christians at the hands of the LGBT fight for equality.

In that first preview video released, we saw Mike Huckabee and Scott Lively spouting anti-gay bile. Now, Right Wing Watch has pointed to a second preview featuring a number of current GOP congressmen with piss poor track records on equality issues.

Featured in the new preview:

  • Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) - Compared gay rights advocates to Nazis and has expressed his concern that same-sex massages in the military will leave gay military service members "vulnerable to terrorism".
  • Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) - Claimed the Supreme Court's DOMA ruling was an attack on Jesus Christ and harmful to children. In 2013, he also reintroduced the Federal Marriage Amendment which would constitutionally ban same-sex marriage nationwide. 
  • Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) - In 2011 proposed impeaching Obama over the president's support for the repeal of DOMA. 
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) - Called a federal judge's ruling overturning Kentucky's ban on gay marriage "illegitimate". He also landed in hot water in 2013 after linking gay marriage to polygamy and "non-human" marriage.  

Rather than sum up the jaw-dropping statements made in the second preview of this sham film, it might be best if you just check it out yourself AFTER THE JUMP...

Southern Poverty Law Center Names And Shames Ben Carson As An Anti-Gay Extremist: VIDEO

Ben_Carson

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has added possible Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson to its list of anti-LGBT extremists, reports NCRM.

A constant mouthpiece for the religious right, Carson recently suggested that Congress should oust judges who rule in favor of same-sex marriage.

6a00d8341c730253ef01a3fcc5658a970b-piThe SPLC includes in the list a number of names with which regular Towleroad readers will be familiar - Bryan Fischer, Scott Lively (right), Tony Perkins and Fred Phelps.

Carson joins the illustrious list because he has “ascended as a far-right political star after publicly scolding President Obama, whom he sat a few feet away from, at a National Prayer Breakfast in February 2013.”

SPLC adds:

“Carson’s own story as an ‘up by the bootstraps’ black man reared in poverty translated into an inspiring, magnetic narrative that captured media attention. Soon he was appearing as the keynoter at a rash of right-wing and hate group gatherings, linking gays with pedophiles, comparing the U.S. to Nazi Germany and endorsing biblical economic practices for 21st century America”

Also referenced are a number of comments by Carson:

“Marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality—it doesn’t matter what they are, they don’t get to change the definition.”

— 2013 interview on Fox News

“[I]f we can redefine marriage as between two men or two women or any other way based on social pressures as opposed to between a man and a woman, we will continue to redefine it in any way that we wish, which is a slippery slope with a disastrous ending, as witnessed in the dramatic fall of the Roman Empire.”

America the Beautiful: Resdiscovering What Made This Nation Great, a 2012 book written with Candy Carlson

“I mean [our government and institutions] are very much like Nazi Germany. …  You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they really believe.”

— Quoted by Breitbart News in 2014

Watch explain that supporters of gay rights are using “hate speech” to split the U.S. apart, AFTER THE JUMP...

Carson us currently flogging his new book You Have A Brain: A Teen's Guide To Thinking Big in which he explains the importance of "Talent, Honesty, Insight, being Nice, Knowledge, Books, In-Depth learning and God." Would that Carson and his kind would heed their own advice.

Anti-Gay Activist Scott Lively Considers Run For Congress in Massachusetts: VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01b7c71806dd970b-800wi

Vile homophobic activist Scott Lively, who has been accused of inciting anti-gay hatred in Uganda, is considering running for Congress in a challenge to Democratic Representative Richard Neal, reports Right Wing Watch.

Lively, who was profiled in last year’s Human Rights Campaign report The Export of Hate, made the announcement on BarbWire, the nasty website belonging to Peter LaBarbera, one of the more dangerous anti-gay activists in the U.S.

His run at congress appears to have come about following a “huge victory” in last year’s run for Massachusetts governor - Lively polled 19,000 votes, less than 1% of those cast.

Lively explains he is hoping to serve in Congress in order to fight the “homosexual agenda” and "anti-Russian propaganda" that is "robbing social conservatives of their most valuable potential alliance in the world today.”

He also makes clear that god is on the side of the bigots in their fight to implement the “goals of Biblical Christianity” around the world.

It is not clear how the news that Lively is to stand trial for crimes against humanity for his “work” spreading anti-gay hatred around the globe will affect his run for congress.

“There are a number of reasons why I would pursue Congress rather than a state office, but one of them is my interest in foreign policy and concern about the disastrous actions of the Obama administration around the world.   

“I am especially concerned that the Neoconservatives (read Republican liberals) have aligned with the Obama administration re Russia and are jointly waging a campaign of anti-Russian propaganda designed to deceive conservatives into supporting a hot war with Russia.

“This is a not only very dangerous game geopolitically, it is robbing social conservatives of their most valuable potential alliance in the world today.  American and Russian conservatives could today be cooperating together to roll back liberalism around the world.  Instead, the cultural Marxists of both major US political parties are trying to drive a wedge between us with the absurd lie that Russia is trying to revive the Soviet Union.

“Neither Russia nor its president are without flaws, and it is as impossible to defend them against a campaign of relentless criticism as is anyone else but Jesus Christ.     

“But if  we ask the simple question ‘Which countries of the world and their current leadership align most closely to the goals of Biblical Christianity and of ideological conservatism?’ it’s a whole different ballgame.

“If we rank the current leaders and countries of the world by that standard Putin and Russia rank high on the list — certainly much higher than Obama and his version of America.  Indeed, is there any world leader speaking in defense of persecuted Christians in the Middle East like Putin has?  Is there any other ‘first world’ nation standing up against the homosexual agenda like Russia is doing?"

A Disturbing Look at the Role Western Anti-Gay Activism Plays In Stirring Up Hate in Uganda: VIDEO

Lively

A new documentary will examine Western-backed homophobia in Uganda, an issue detailed last year in Human Rights Campaign’s report “The Export of Hate.”

Daniel B. Law, a first-time filmmaker, is currently seeking backing for the project on GoFundMe.

Law promises that he already has a interviews lined up with high profile members of the gay community in Uganda as well as some international figures.

His ultimate aim is to “highlight the fact that the homophobia that exists there has been brought there by western evangelicals whose views are no longer tolerated in the west."

BarbWire Columnist Blames 'Demonic' Gay People For Leelah Alcorn's Suicide: LISTEN

Alcorn

Gina Miller, a content editor at vile anti-gay rag BarbWire, has blamed the gay community for the suicide of transgender teen Leelah Alcorn, reports Right Wing Watch.

6a00d8341c730253ef01b8d0b43782970c-800wiLate last month, 17-year-old Alcorn took her own life and scheduled a heartbreaking suicide note to be published on her Tumblr page. The page has since been removed by Leelah’s conservative Christian parents.

In a characteristically nasty but shockingly insensitive column, Miller says that Satanic forces were behind Leelah’s “deeply disturbing mental and spiritual sickness.”

She continues that anyone “in open rebellion against God’s design for human sexuality will suffer for it, and suicidal tendencies are just one of the many ill effects.”

Using the horrible, preventable death of a teenager as fuel to the “Christian” right fire, Miller goes on to claim that it is actually anti-gay activists that are the victims of Leelah’s death:

“Our freedoms are in terrible danger. The radical homosexual movement is a powerful tool of these evil forces, and it is being used in an aggressive campaign to squash our natural rights of conscience, speech, association and religion and to pervert the meaning of family and marriage.”

Listen, if you can stomach it, AFTER THE JUMP...

BarbWire is owned by bigot Matt Barber, a man so deeply involved in the promotion of hatred that he has actively supported the “work” of Scott Lively who is known for helping to spread anti-gay laws in Africa and for his book The Pink Swastika, which blamed gay people for the rise of Nazi Germany.

Dan Savage has called for Leelah's parents to be prosecuted for abuse.

Ben Carson: Gay Rights Activists Inspire Hatred, Are 'Enemies Of America' - VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01a73d8b51c3970d-800wi

Anti-gay activist Dr. Ben Carson, who has compared gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals, thinks that supporters of gay rights are using “hate speech” to split the U.S. apart, reports Right Wing Watch

6a00d8341c730253ef01a3fd2eb406970b-800wiIn an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network last Tuesday, Carson - who thinks that being bisexual means you have to have sex with men and women at the same time - also implied that god has suggested he should consider running for president.

He added that gay rights activists are “hateful people” and “the enemies” of America because they “try to divide everybody up” and “incite people to anger and to hatred.”

“A good example would be somebody who is pro-life, the inciters would come along and say, ‘you’re anti-women, you hate women’ and they try to get women to hate you, when in fact you love women, you just happen also to love life and love babies. But that’s how they try to create the divisions.

“Somebody who is pro-traditional-family, they’ll come up and say, ‘he’s a homophobe, they hate gay people, they’re nasty’ and they just try to incite all this stuff really to further their own agendas.”

Carson failed to make clear how his incitement to hatred against gay people fits into the scheme.

Watch the interview with Carson, AFTER THE JUMP...

Fast becoming a familiar theme among anti-gay wingnuts, earlier this week Scott Lively said that the continued acceptance of gay rights is leading to the destruction of the United States.  It has since been announced that Lively will stand trial for crimes against humanity because of his mission to instigate anti-gay laws in countries including Uganda and Russia.
