'Biggest myth about anti-lgbt hate groups debunked' & other Fri midday news briefs

The Biggest Myth About Anti-LGBTQ Hate Groups Debunked - If I said it once, I've said a multitude of times. Lgbt equality will be harder and harder to attain IF we don't start taking anti-lgbt groups seriously. And aggressively calling them out BEFORE they smear us. We should encourage discussion and debate instead of whining about "a bigot being given a platform." Platforms are great places to fight battles AND change narratives. And one narrative we must change is how they claim their opposition to us is Biblically based. THAT is the ugliest lie of them all. Don't argue about it amongst yourselves. Just trust me on this one. 

Texas Lieutenant Governor Works with Hate Group to Drum Up Support for Anti-Trans "Bathroom Bill" - Government officials working with anti-lgbt hate groups is ugly. Again, stop pussyfooting around with these groups. And "street protests" alone aren't going to cut it this time. 

 The Plot To Turn Same-Sex Marriage Into Second-Class Marriage - THIS is the warning. 

 Pat Robertson: Anyone Who Opposes Trump Is ‘Revolting Against God’s Plan’ For America - No! No! That's not how this works AT ALL! 

Why President Trump Isn’t Anti-Gay Enough for the Religious Right - Don't worry. I'm sure he is working his way to screwing with us.
