Nonsense. They’ve been brutally persecuting one segment of American society for decades. Oh, maybe it doesn’t count to you because the people they brutalized are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender.
And their agenda includes making homosexual sex punishable by death.
“ To that end the theocratic right seeks to criminalize homosexuality, promote abstinence-only sex education, and advocate censorship. This page is a compendium of articles on what New York Times columnist Frank Rich calls “The Indecency Police.””
Roberta Sklar, spokeswoman for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force responded to the President’s support of a Constitutional Amendment to ban gay marriage:
“If he endorses amendments such as this, which blatantly discriminates against a class of people, you would then have to wonder who and what is next.”
Ms. Sklar’s statement brings to mind another time in history. One of Hitler’s first acts after taking office on January 30, 1933 was to ban homosexual organizations. From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:
“ Soon after taking office on January 30, 1933, Hitler banned all homosexual and lesbian organizations. Brownshirted storm troopers raided the institutions and gathering places of homosexuals.”
People for the American Way acknowledges “an explicit political agenda that seeks to criminalize gay relationships and deny basic rights to gays and lesbians in a range of critical areas: employment, housing, and families. Anti-gay politics have long been at the core of Religious Right fundraising and organizing efforts.”
The problem is that mainstream americans were just homophobic enough to allow the religious right to practice their domination skills persecuting GLBTQ people. Now everyone is at risk.
