Comic gives stunning description of Scott Lively's full damage to Uganda's lgbt community

If you need a simplified way to explain the impact of Scott Lively's homophobia in Uganda as well as the case against him, then this comic  from  Andy Warner at the Center for Constitutional Rights explains it more than adequately. Below are just a few images:

I'm just blown away by it. To read the entire comic, go here.

'Scott Lively gets extremely morbid about stopping lgbt equality' and other Thursday midday news briefs

Lively: Anti-Gay 'Revolution' Needed To Stop Demonic 'Conspiracy' To 'Homosexualize The World' - Scott Lively is getting just a little bit morbid about the need to stop lgbt equality. Saying that anti-gay activists must be ready to “give up our lives if necessary" is a bit much. And it's gets really spooky when you realize that if some folks would be willing to die, others will take it to the other extreme and will be willing to kill if given the right encouragement. 

CNN hosts Peter Sprigg twice in as many hours - Unfortunately CNN demonstrates that anti-gay figures aren't challenged as they should be by the media about their anti-gay statements and slurs.

Watch Bill Donohue's Anti-Gay Demagoguery Fall Apart Under Scrutiny - However when the media does it's job, for one brief shining moment, it becomes Camelot. 

 Mississippi Scraps Discriminatory ‘Religious Freedom’ Provisions Following Backlash In Arizona - This happened in Mississippi? Hot damn! 

 When ‘Religious Liberty’ Was Used To Justify Racism Instead Of Homophobia - This is an awesome article that I highly recommend you read, pass along, AND reference.

Anti-gay pastor: We're going to jail because of marriage equality

This video of Southern Baptist Robert Jeffress, flanked by Family Research Council president Tony Perkins and pastor Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at a National Religious Broadcasters convention press conference underlines a point I made earlier this week about the religious right fetish for being persecuted.

Not only is Jeffress' comments totally ridiculous but they take on a special degree of inanity when one realizes that anti-gay pastors, spokespeople, and organizations threw out the SAME horror stories when lgbt-inclusive hate crimes legislation was passed. And to date, no pastor has been arrested in America for speaking out against homosexuality in the pulpit. The sad thing is that people like Jeffress will continue to spin the same false predictions and gullible folks will continue to believe them.
