Part Two...

The 20 Most Frightful Anti-Gay Activists

Looking for a positively frightful Halloween costume? Perhaps Part Two of The 20 Most Frightful Anti-Gay Activists can be of assistance…

Be warned, however, these folks aren’t for the faint of heart…

Don’t be fooled by Phyllis Schlafly’s sweet looking face, this woman’s a snake. In fact, this oldie baddie may be one of the most vicious of the anti-gay activists. The 83-year old Missouri native made a name for herself in the 1960s by taking on women’s rights, which would lead to a “androgynous society”. Of course, Schlafly wouldn’t have earned the title of “conservatism’s first lady” without a little homo-hating, which she does with zeal, particularly through her “patriotic” Eagle Forum.
Though still an ardent anti-feminist, Schlafly’s particularly vocal when it comes to “supremacist judges” and sexuality in schools.

[These judges] are becoming increasingly aggressive in handing down supremacist decisions that are biased against parents’ rights and religion, and in favor of feminist and gay-rights agendas.

‘Parents’ rights cases are seldom accepted by the Supreme Court. This year, rather than hear a single case about parents’ rights to control the upbringing of their own children, the Supreme Court heard the appeals of Osama bin Laden’s driver and of prisoners demanding the right to read pornographic magazines.

What’s most distressing about Schlafly is that she continues to rail against gay people despite the fact that her son’s gay. She’s not a mother, she’s a monster!

    Yes, Phyllis has a gay son who supports her ministry . Ditto for the gay son of Tim and Beverly La Haye.

    The Canadian voices of spiritual violence were from the Roman Catholic hierarchy – now completely uberconservative reflecting the retirement and replacement of all liberals by the former and current pope. This majority voice was also joined by the fundamentalist and pentacostal voices in Western Canada.

    We won the spiritual debate. How? Well, the Anglicans held the middle ground….but it was the United Church of Canada – who joined the MCC and many Quaker and Unitarian Universalist voices against these theocon luminaries who fought us in Canada…”so that they would not have to fight us in the streets of America” LOL

    When Canada’s largest Protestant denomination was the loudest voice for LGBT marriage and civil rights, the secular activists – the pols and the jurists – could fight each other.

    You do not fight the religious wrong with the legal right, but with the religious right…namely those who fight the theocons on their own turf.

    @Rt. Rev. Dr. RES: 1

    Last paragraph from No 1 above sounds very true to me.

    I go back a few years when the orange juice saleslady propagated her contempt upon the Gay community.

    It’s been some time since then and I’ve seen all kinds of progress towards LGBT acceptance which is a must precursor towards marriage equality.

    So far so good.
    Slow but sure is a good sign.
    We must be doing a pretty good job of revealing to the world — hey everybody, look at us, cause we are a good and decent bunch of folks like yourselves.

    But, all great works are subject to the “3 steps forward and 1 or 2 steps backward rule”.

    As far as our own “religious right” stuff, here are my own personal favorites —

    These are some of the gold standards of attitudes about how the whole world should think about and treat all gays and lesbians and transgender folks —

    1. Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way…….Romans 14:13

    2. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God……Romans 15:7

    3. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love…….Ephesians 4:2

    4. Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble…….1 Peter 3:8

    5. Man’s ways are of the Lord,…………Proverbs 20:24

    6. You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing or how you feel about yourself, so keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something or thinking of themselves in the way they know is best……….Romans 14:22
