'Community, school board strike back against Liberty Counsel lawsuit threat' & other Thur midday news briefs

Score one for the good guys.

Conservatives Threatened A School For Supporting A Transgender Student. Their Response Was Perfect. - Wonderful!  When a school in its area is threatened with a lawsuit for having kids read a book about a transgender child, the Mount Horeb Area School District community (Wisconsin) strike back by having a public reading of the book AND the school board unanimously passes full transgender-inclusive measures. This tea is so sweet and lemony when it is sipped.  

Tennessee school wins right to ban gays and women who’ve had sex: ‘This is who we are’ - "For our religious liberty . . . and everything . . ."  

Anti-LGBT Texas Officials Claim They're Being Bullied By Pro-Civil Rights Group - Cue the violin. If you are affiliated with national anti-gay hate groups, you only have yourself to blame for the attention you receive.

Texas Appeals Court Reinstates Convictions Of Hateful, Violent Gay Pride ProtestersTexas is popular today (and not in a good way). 

 Lastly, two posts from the past two days to serve as reminders: 

 Muslims join lgbts as the victims of Family Research Council lies 

  That time when a Family Research Council spokesman wanted to 'export' gays . . .  

The Family Research Council uses junk science and lies to demonize the Muslim community, just like it usually does against the lgbt community. And it wasn't that long ago that a member of that group was talking about "exporting" gays, much like Donald Trump is talking about not allowing Muslim immigrants to come to the United States. It's sad and funny that scapegoating never changes except for the names of the innocents who are targeted.
