Anita Bryant Was Not Right

With the current controversy over the statements made by Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern, one sometimes might wonder how individuals can come to hold such ignorant, bigoted views of other human beings. Sadly, for the intellectually lazy and small minded, there are plenty of sources for them to parrot without the need to think. Thinking is something that truly terrifies the fundamentalists and uber-conservatives. Today’s World Net Daily, a/k/a Wingnut Daily, has a guest commentary which is a perfect example of the - dare I say DELIBERATELY untrue - messages that are regularly disseminated to fundie land by “pro-family” organizations and individuals like Richard Land at the Southern Baptist Convention. Since Sally Kern is married to a Baptist minister, I suspect she has heard these lies for years without ever questioning their truth.

Today’s commentary diatribe is by Janet Folger formerly with James Kennedy’s Coral Ridge Ministries and one who has made a career out of bashing gays. As is typical, most of her factual allegations are 100% untrue, which is par for the course with Ms. Folger. Like most of the self-righteous, self-proclaimed “Christians” who constantly wear their religion on their sleeve, Ms. Folger is especially challenged when it comes to matters of truth and veracity. She views herself as exempt from the Commandment against bearing false witness. It is very important for gays and fair minded individuals to know their enemy and their tactics to best counter against them. Ms. Folger is a case in point. Here are some highlights of the trash she is generating (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=58600):

Since Anita Bryant got run over with the homosexual steamroller, things have only gotten worse. Don't believe me? Just ask the grandmothers who were arrested in Philadelphia for sharing their faith. "Hate crimes" legislation (which passed both the U.S. House and Senate last year –stopped only by a threat of a veto) would silence pastors in their pulpits and outlaw books like "The Criminalization of Christianity," whose subtitle is: "Read this Before it Becomes Illegal!" The "Employment Non-Discrimination Act" would put an "ENDA" to religious liberty in the workplace and, with its transgender amendment, threaten any business that would fire a man who came to work wearing a dress.

The textbooks in California are being rewritten to remove any references to "mom" and "dad" and revised to appear more like the Washington Blade or a homosexual newsletter. And now California courts are telling parents that it's illegal to homeschool or send their children to Christian and private schools that may have teachers without "state certification."

If B. Hussein Obama or Mrs. Clinton get elected, you can expect two to three justices on the Supreme Court to be replaced with 45-year-old rabid pro-abortion liberals who hate marriage and everything we believe. Then you can expect:

1. Thought crimes to become law and pastors to be arrested for the content of their sermons.

2. The silencing of Christian and conservative talk radio with the UnFairness Doctrine.

3. ENDA to bring an end to free speech in the workplace, shutting down business like Boston's Catholic Charities who wanted to place orphan children with a mom and a dad rather than with homosexual activists.

4. The Union Thug Law removing the secret ballot for union membership and delivering more coerced funds to the Democrat coffers then ever before.

If you want to protest, pick up a sign, but don't throw away your vote, because if Obama or Clinton get into the White House, we won't recognize our country four years from now.
