'Is Franklin Graham pushing for a theocracy?' & other Tue midday news briefs

Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham Quits The GOP - Franklin Graham, demagogue extraordinaire, is angry that the GOP didn't defund Planned Parenthood. And he hasn't exactly been in OUR corner, constantly attacking our equality victories. Because of these things, Graham is officially quitting the Republican party. And according to the article, he is pushing for a theocracy in all put name:

 Franklin Graham will, effectively, follow in the footsteps of his pals like the American Family Association and their David Lane, who heads AFA's American Renewal Project, to sire an army of Christian pastors to take over America! "Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble. I want to challenge Christians, even pastors, across the country to pray about running for office where they can have an impact. We need mayors, country commissioners, city council members, school board members who will uphold biblical values." 
Yes, because this sort of thing worked so well in the past if one will ignore certain eras of religious persecutions throughout history. Not saying that Graham and his ilk will be totally successful, but this is still nothing to laugh off. At the very least, Franklin and company can cause the lgbt community considerable amount of trouble on the local state county, and city areas. 

 Chris Christie Wants To Spare Transgender Kids The 'Confusion' Of Choosing Their Own Bathroom - Nonsense. The grand irony is confusion begins when folks like Christie begin spreading horror stories of predators in bathrooms. 

  A simple question someone should ask Marco Rubio about his bigotry - Reposting this item from last night because it effectively stymies the whining that folks like Marco Rubio push when they want to take rights away from lgbts.  

State Department defends LGBT rights efforts in Africa - State department pushes back against claims that it made life worse for lgbts in Africa.

 Religious Right Leaders Head To Farris Wilks Ranch To Plot How To Make Ted Cruz President - Lawd, hammercy! Making this guy likable will truly be a miracle for the ages.
