'Family Research Council spokesman wants Senate to question lesbian candidate about her 'homosexual conduct'' & other Tue. midday news briefs

FRC spokesman Peter Sprigg

Peter Sprigg Urges Senate To Grill Lesbian Air Force Nominee About Her ‘Homosexual Conduct’ - Just to be clear - a spokesman of anti-lgbtq hate group Family Research Council- the group which whined about anti-Christian persecution when a candidate for Army secretary faced a backlash for homophobic and transphobic comments he made - is now demanding that the Senate make a candidate for commandant of cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy go into detail about her sexual history simply because she is a lesbian. This situation ALONE raises questions as to why the media calls the Family Research Council a "Christian advocacy" group. 

How The Media Covered Hate Groups Last Week, 5/1/17- 5/7/17 - Speaking of which - some news sources have been really good at calling out these groups. Others? Not so good.  

Another Religious Right Claim Of Anti-Christian Persecution Gets Utterly Debunked - A while back, I posted about how the Liberty Counsel was targeting a lesbian teacher by claiming she was bullying Christian students. Guess what? Another anti-lgbtq lie down the drain.  

Trolls Come For Debra Messing Following Her Message To Ivanka Trump - I HATE trolls . . . they never come for me. All of this "shade" is going to waste.
