Janet Porter's latest anti-gay video is both hilarious and pathetic

Batten down the hatches and hold your noses. Janet Porter and her Faith2Action group has come out with another ugly video repeating the same homophobic propaganda we have heard over and over again. The video is so bad that it was initially removed as hate speech. Luckily there is a back up copy for you to peruse.

According to Right Wing Watch:

Faith 2 Action’s Janet Porter has been releasing clips of her film which warns that gays and lesbians are out to criminalize Christianity and no different than adulterers. In the latest segment, actors mock the books “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy’s Roommate” by having a teacher read “Heather has Two Cigarettes” and “Daddy’s Roommate has Lung Cancer,” while accusing a non-smoking toddler of being a “smokerphobe.”

“Homosexual behavior is up to three times more dangerous than smoking,” according to Porter’s film, “We don’t promote smoking in the schools, so why would we promote something even more dangerous.”

The film later interviews the head of the American Family Association’s Michigan chapter Gary Glenn, who favors the criminalization of homosexuality, who said that homosexuality should be discouraged in the same way we see campaigns against smoking.

“If you really care and love somebody you don’t want them to be involved in behavior that’s going to make them die earlier,” Glenn said, “if you love them you want them to stick around and encourage them to get out of that lifestyle…. True Christian compassion is trying to help people out of self- destructive behavior.”

This video pulls out all of stops, including citing that ridiculous Fox News story about the "forced middle school lesbian kiss," which I refuted.

The discredited idea that homosexuality is more dangerous than cigarette smoking is one which is derived from our favorite junk scientist, Paul Cameron

Now with Janet Porter coming out with all of these recent videos, some of you have asked just who is she. Well I could go into a long expository of how strident and nauseatingly disturbed I see her as, but I think the following video of Porter praying to God - or rather demanding that God give her and folks like her control of the media  - says it all.  And by the way, it's not a joke:

Smoking causes lung cancer. Solution = reduce smoking.

Homo/Transphobia causes health risks for LGBTI people. Solution = Reduce homo/transphobia.

Their theory is flawed.

This hateful ignorance and faulty logic is painful to watch.

But gay people get murdered at a higher rate! If we didn't exist, that wouldn't happen.

It's obvious, really.

But stupidity causes all kinds of ailments, they really should look for a cure for that first.
