Religious right feud over gay sex and Jim DeMint's 'gay fears' made for an interesting week

What can I say about last week other than the fact that it was business as usual with the religious right.

Uganda's 'Kill the gays' bill brings out the nuts in America - Apparently expressing the idea of shipping all lgbts (or as our friends puts it - sodomites) to Calfornia and putting a huge electrified fence around the state gets your video knocked off of youtube. Who knew?

Fox News cites me in article about Kevin Jennings . . . and almost gets it right - If I were one for irony, I could easily point out that the constant barrage of negativity thrown at the lgbt community (and especially lgbt youth) by people like Sprigg and LaBarbera and the organizations they run with only add to conditions that cause lgbt youth to be placed in situations like those mentioned in the books.

Sen. Jim DeMint fears a gay president - . . . the fact that DeMint fears having a gay president doesn't surprise any of us lgbts in South Carolina. It's just more proof that DeMint doesn't care about us - the people whom he was elected to represent.

In celebration of D.C. pro-gay marriage vote, let's revisit the 'D.C. hot mess' - How could anyone forget "sister girl?"

Lgbts catching hell in Rwanda - We need to start thinking of lgbt equality as more of a global issue. Whether or not we get full rights and privileges that we deserve in this country, let's not forget about our lgbt brothers and sisters catching hell around the world.

Uh oh! Peter LaBarbera and Americans for Truth tries to call out my blog - Honestly speaking, if the Southern Poverty Law Center ever labeled LaBarbera's organization (Americans for Truth) as a hate group, it would be an act of charity.

New low: Exploiting the voices of lgbt youth to attack Kevin Jennings - Are some of the books mature? Yes. But they aren't pornography anymore than a personal experience of rape should be considered as pornography.

Gay sex quote causes three-way feud between Porno Petey, the Liberty Counsel and Exodus International - LaBarbera and his silly group, Barber and the Liberty Counsel, and yes even Exodus International are all phonies. They all serve to stigmatize and villify the lgbt community whether be it through paying too much attention to how they think we have sex or hiding their lies and distortions behind a veneer of piety. It's fun to watch how these phony Christians slice each other into little pieces.

Matt Barber seeks to end feud with Porno Petey by painting the Liberty Counsel as liars

Yesterday, I brought you an interesting story regarding religious right figures Matt Barber, Peter LaBarbera and Randy Thomas and their organizations (Americans for Truth, Liberty Counsel and Exodus International) feuding over a very rude comment made by Barber on LaBarbera's webpage about the lgbt community:

It boils down to this: there is nothing “conservative” about — as (Matt)Barber inimitably puts it — “one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love.’” Or two women awkwardly mimicking natural procreative relations or raising a child together in an intentionally fatherless home.

The Liberty Counsel said that Barber never made such a statement:

“Neither Matt Barber nor anyone with Liberty Counsel wrote or made any such public statement that is being alleged in this blog. Liberty Counsel promotes the traditional family of one man and one woman because we believe that such relationships are best for society and for children. While we strongly disagree with the sexual politics and agenda of activist organizations and individuals, we also believe that each person is entitled to respect. While there are some that hate us because of our message of sexual integrity, redemption, change, and hope, we have never, and will never, confuse the person with the agenda. We have never sought to dehumanize people to promote our message. Our message is one of redemption through the power of Jesus Christ.”

But LaBarbera stuck to his guns, even verbally attacking Exodus International Vice President Randy Thomas.

Well today via LaBarbera's webpage comes the news from Barber that he did make the comment, but before joining the Liberty Counsel:
