Pitney, the Huffington Post editor who chatted with us a few months back, earned Fitzpatrick’s rage this week after writing about potential vice-president Sarah Palin’s “controversial” religious views.
And it’s that very word – “controversial” – that Fitzpatrick seizes upon, insisting that “pro-gay” Pitney’s simply trying to hash up some scandal of his own and push a nefarious agenda.
In his effort to marginalize Palin’s religious values, Pitney appears to be advancing a political agenda. Just two weeks ago, the self-described “advocacy” journalist was scheduled to participate in a panel on opinion writing at the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association convention in Washington, D.C.
To define Palin’s faith, Pitney and Stein quote what they describe as “provocative” and “eyebrow-raising” statements by Wasilla pastor Ed Kalnins. The minister’s teachings, however, may not be as controversial as Pitney and Stein believe.
Well, considering Wasilla Assembly of God’s support of Love Won Out, a non-profit dedicated to “curing” the vile homosexual, we’d have to disagree with Brian Fitzpatrick, who’s senior editor at the Culture and Media Institute.
It’s worth noting that the Institute works to “preserve and help restore America’s culture, character, traditional values, and morals against the assault of the liberal media elite, and to promote fair portrayal of social conservatives and religious believers in the media.” Fitzpatrick also sat on the board of the Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, “a group dedicated to exposing the homosexual activist agenda.”
AFTAH seeks to apply the same single-minded determination to opposing the radical homosexual agenda and standing for God-ordained sexuality and the natural family as countless homosexual groups do in promoting their harmful agenda.
So, Fitzpatrick, what’s that about Pitney’s slant?
