'Anti-LGBTQ evangelical right worried that Roy Moore support made them toxic to America' & other Fri midday news briefs

Some right-wing/anti-LGBTQ evangelicals are worried that support of Roy Moore has made them toxic in the eyes of other Americans. Ya think?

Has Support for Moore Stained Evangelicals? Some Are Worried - Uh oh. Watch this. The anti-LGBTQ/evangelical/religious right are having a serious "come to Jesus" moment over their support of Roy Moore. Please. They missed several "come to Jesus" moments when they decided to smear the LGBTQ community time after time again. What you are watching now is akin to the slow sinking of the Titanic. I wonder if I can add a few extra holes.

After Trump and Moore, some evangelicals are finding their own label too toxic to use - I personally think the LGBTQ community should use this moment to point out the myriad times these folks attacked us and our families and tried to eliminate our equality and dignity. Let's be honest about something (and it needs to be repeated) - People like Franklin Graham and Robert Jeffress, groups like the Family Research Council or the Heritage Foundation don't give a damn about America, nor our diversity or rules of law. They just want conservative justices to eliminate abortion and gay marriage and leaders who will build up their egos. Everything else, including their integrity, is expendable. 

These Schools Get Millions Of Tax Dollars To Discriminate Against LGBTQ Students - Your "religious liberty" does not mean you have a right to steal my tax money while disrespecting me.

Kevin Swanson Blames Roy Moore’s Loss On Alabama’s Love Of Pornography - "On his radio program yesterday, extremist anti-LGBTQ pastor Kevin Swanson reacted to Roy Moore’s loss in the Senate election in Alabama earlier this week by blaming it on the state’s love of pornography, which he also warned is turning children gay." - I don't think I can write a better sentence than that so I just took it verbatim from the post.
