'Lawsuit proves SPLC's point about anti-LGBTQ hate groups' & other Fri midday news briefs

Anti-LGBTQ hate groups push a false connection between homosexuality and pedophilia. And then whine when called out about it.

Christian Hate Group Sues SPLC Over “Hate Group” Label - The group suing SPLC for calling it a hate group has said this about the LGBTQ community: 

And if you’re wondering why Kennedy’s ministry is on there, here’s an example of what SPLC says on its site: Over the years, Kennedy emphasized anti-gay rhetoric, particularly in his TV ministry. He recommended as “essential” the virulent work of R.J. Rushdoony… who believed practicing gays should be executed. In an especially nasty 1989 edition of a [Coral Ridge Ministries] newsletter, Kennedy ran photographs of children along with the tagline, “Sex With Children? Homosexuals Say Yes!” 

 The organization says it's losing money because of the hate group label. Wonderful. That's why a serious public debate on what groups like these do and say to denigrate LGBTQs is needed. And if a lawsuit these groups are stupidly pushing will open the door and let all it come out, so be it! Don't be blase. Demand the debate.
