Religious right hatred and insanity on display at The Awakening

Even as we enjoy the leisure of a Saturday, religious right talking heads are gathering for something they call The Awakening.

Personally, the event sounds like some God-awful horror movie I once saw starring Charleton Heston. We would all be so fortunate if it actually was that. But it's worse.

Apparently The Awakening is when various religious right spokespeople and heads gather together to simultaneously pat themselves on the back for their deluded belief that God favors them most of all and also to whine about the "secularlists" and "gays."

 While I can't give you a report of this dreary affair, People for the American Way's Right-Wing Watch has a twitter feed which details the highlights lowlights of this monstrosity complete with the usual cast of characters spewing their hatred:

Rena Lindevaldsen says "Satan is hard at work" pushing gay rights

Matt Barber says gay rights supporters say "the most vicious and vile things"

Matt Barber says pro-choice and pro-gay rights advocates will "be remembered akin to those who supported slavery"

These hate mongers just keep telling one "big lie" after another. What disgusting people. Where did they get all that hate?

Rats! I clicked on the link to their Twitter feed, but received a message stating that Twitter was at full capacity. I'll try again later.

I hope that recordigns of Awakening 2012 will be available. I'd like to see the wingnuttery.

Coming from Matt Barber, the statement that gay rights supporters say "the most vicious and vile things" is comedy gold.

Greg Quinlan well there is no scientific evidence for heterosexuality. There never has been a study done on straightness. We all know what their arguement would be as to why "because we don't need to becuase it is god ordained"...jezzzuzz give me a "f" bomb break!

I take GREAT issue with your remarks.

Mostly, I recently saw that movie with Charlton Heston, and although it was no classic, it was better than I'd been led to believe.

That is all. You do mediocre '80s horror an injustice by comparing it to today's Religious Right.
