Religious right continues to attack murdered ambassador

There seems to be this idea amongst religious right evangelicals that their religious freedoms are in danger. It's a lie, of course.

However, there is a huge number of people who have a serious problem with Christianity and it doesn't have a thing to do with their personal beliefs, i.e. atheism, but rather the actions of some people who call themselves Christians or those who consider themselves spokespeople of the evangelical right.

While they call themselves "Christians" and claim to stand for God, their actions are extremely unsavory.

Yesterday, I blogged about how some conservatives and religious right members were spreading ugly lies about Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was recently murdered due to an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

They were saying that he was openly gay, deliberately sent to Libya by Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, and that his corpse was sodomized.

Michelangelo Signorile refuted these lies, but leave it to Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association to repeat them:

The saddest part about Fischer's lie is no matter how many times it will be refuted, he will continue to repeat it.

Fischer is an opportunist - an morally vacant one.

As to your comment about the right-wingers claiming their religious freedoms are under fire, they claim first amendment protections for themselves while absolving themselves from the responsibilities of the first amendment, i.e. respecting the same protections as they apply to others. Yet they seek to deny the same protections for others, while insisting on others adherence to the responsibilities.

I find it really ironic that his background is the constitution.
