Holy Bullies's insight:
I doubt that this is merely the first time One News Now linked to Breitbart and it does lead one to wonder just how much does race-baiting play a part in the American Family Association's supposed Christian message. It's not as overt as the publication's usual anti-lgbt message but it's just as ugly.

Holy Bullies's insight:
It took the online magazine Wired only one article to do to the anti-lgbt Family Research Council what I have been attempting to do for over a decade and what our lgbt leaders should be doing on a daily basis. Like I've said many times before, it's not enough to call the Family Research Council bigots and a "hate group." You have to go into detail, like Wired magazine does in this wonderful article, Trump’s Transition Team Is All Tied Up With Anti-Gay Pseudoscience

Holy Bullies's insight:
Will America's stance on global LGBT rights change under a Trump Administration? Perhaps. Consider this passage one of the news briefs below: "Both (VP-elect Mike) Pence and Putin say that although individual gay people should be left alone, they should not be recognized as a politically organized subgroup that can advocate for protection. Putin considers such advocacy to be propaganda. Either these leaders do not know, or do not mind, that violence is threatened against the many people who are gender nonconforming or attracted to others of the same sex (or both). If Putin or Pence acknowledged such persecution, they might have to support mandates to protect that minority."

Holy Bullies's insight:
As if this is a surprise - Trump's pick for Attorney General isn't exactly lgbt friendly either. Read a personal story from someone who witnessed this during a 2009 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. So Sessions has problems with immigrants, African-Americans, Muslims, and now lgbts.

Holy Bullies's insight:
I hope that the media can take a break from talking about Clinton's optics and the non-scandals involving her emails or her foundation. They need to devote at least a little time on the giant contradictions involving a presidential candidate promising to be a friend to lgbts while he is kissing up to groups and people who can't stand us or the ground we walk.

Holy Bullies's insight:
Ralph Reed was involved in an ugly scandal exploiting Christian mobilization against gambling casinos. The scandal cost him an almost assured win as Lt. Governor of Georgia. Long before he made a name for himself as a so-called pro-family advocate, Gary Bauer undermined efforts to educate Reagan on the AIDS crisis and efforts to get the president to address it publicly. He undermined Surgeon General C. Everett Koop as the crisis swept through the nation. Perkins has a long history demonizing lgbts from claiming that we are pedophiles to claiming that we are tools of "the enemy." Graham has praised Russian president Vladimir Putin for his country's persecution of lgbts. Ironically, Graham has been silent about Putin's persecution of Christians. Why are we shocked that supposed faith leaders like Graham, Bauer, Reed, and Perkins are willing to overlook Trump's comments about sexually assaulting women? The question needs to be how in the hell did these folks become "anointed" as this country's faith leaders in the first place?
