MSNBC won't run ad against hate group leader Tony Perkins

For the longest time, many of us have been raising hell over the fact that MSNBC hosts hate group leader Tony Perkins (the Family Research Council) as authoritative voice without asking him about his organization's history of lying in order to demonize the lgbtq community.

Well now Faithful America has come out with an awesome ad which best speaks to the point. Only MSNBC rejected this ad. Therefore, I guess it's up to us to spread its message:

My guess is that Perkins will whine about how supposedly the left is trying to silence him and other people of faith. In actuality, I don't want him silenced. I want there to be a conversation about the entire issue.

And the first place we should start is with the charges in the ad.

PLEASE spread it around. Let's make this thing very viral!

'Fox News personality slurs Obama's transgender former nanny' and other Wednesday midday news briefs

One of the main reasons why some facets of the American news media are abominable is because they have no standards regarding their personalities. When you hear some of these folks, you wonder just how they got in the door of a major new service, even if its Fox News.

Perfect case in point - Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros. Listen how she reduces the plight of President Obama's transgender former nanny (she is an outcast in her own country) into an attack on the president, making sure to slur the poor woman for good measure:

Michele Bachmann has memory loss about her homophobia

Piers Morgan seems to be making a name for himself by exposing the homophobic nature of famous people.

Fresh from the Kirk Cameron controversy, he begins a new one with former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann:

MORGAN: Yes. But you see, I was also taught to respect and be tolerant towards people who didn’t agree with those beliefs. And I think that America, with this movement on gay marriage and so on, just has to come a time when people who have strong religious beliefs, like you, like Kirk Cameron, actually show people like the gay community tolerance and a bit of slack, and say, I don’t agree with it, but nor am I going to demonize you. That’s all I’m getting at.

BACHMANN: I would like to see the lack of demonization for those of us who stand on sincerely held religious beliefs. It’s overtime. That’s where you see the demonization of people who stand on their beliefs.

MORGAN: So respect on both sides is what we need to get to?

BACHMANN: Of course.

Bachmann, like Cameron before her, is obviously playing the victim. I really wish Morgan had asked her about the following comments she made in 2004:

And again, don't misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgendered. We need to have profound compassion for the people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life, and sexual identity disorders. This is a very real issue. It's not funny, it's sad.

Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle—we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It's a very sad life. It's part of Satan, I think, to say this is gay. It's anything but gay. "

It's profoundly sad to recognize that almost all, if not all, individuals who have gone into the lifestyle have been abused at one time in their life, either by a male or by a female. There's been profound hurt and profound things that have happened in almost all of their lives.

This new legal enforcement of a new status—homosexuality, lesbianism, bringing it into the mainstream, if you will, giving it a legitimacy if you will, that will impact not only the gay community, but every man, woman and child, particularly the schools.

It's like a friend of mine said. You have every right to say what you want, but if you publicly call out a group of people as "disordered" or "sinful," you simply cannot expect those people to be silent and allow you to do it.

Sooner or later, people like Bachmann (and Cameron) are going to have to understand that they can't hide their ugliness behind their so-called religious beliefs.
