New 'ex-gay' documentary, same old bull

Talk about your rehashing of antiquated lies about being an lgbt. But it does serve to illustrate a point I've made consistently.

It doesn't matter how many time you refute and embarrass anti-gay spokepeople and organizations. They generally lie low and then rise up with the same mess. To them. it's not a battle of truth but attrition. They count on repeating the same lies continuously until they either make us blase or beaten down from weariness.

Now no doubt, observers and gameplayers  of semantics will accuse me of being intolerant of those who supposedly chose to "leave" the loosely named "gay lifestyle."

Let me say right off that it's a load of bull. I have no problems with those who claim that they are "ex gays." What I do have a problem how easily and without thought many of these  'ex-gays' align themselves with anti-gay groups and speakers like you will see above.

If you want the lgbt community to respect the choices of your lives, my dear 'ex-gays," then stop trying to make our lives a living hell.

James Dobson is no longer relevant in marriage equality fight

Why does the subject of marriage equality turn people like religious leader James Dobson into one-note drama queens?

 In the clip below of an interview, Dobson talks with Billy Hallowell, the Faith and culture editor at Glenn Beck's "The Blaze and goes off negatively about marriage equality:

Poor Dobson. He pushes that ridiculous line about marriage equality destroying culture without realizing that time has passed him by. It's no longer 2004 when he helped to command and direct the opposers of marriage equality to victories and spotlight.

This is the new age when folks have realized that portents of doom about marriage equality were just lies fueled by either cynical folks out to make a buck through the exploitation of religious beliefs or self-righteous, conceited folks who have actually have no clue.

I think that Dobson is the latter, but it really doesn't matter which type he is. Either way, he come across as just plain tired.
