'Hate group leader applauds Zambia for imprisoning gays' & other Wed midday news briefs

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins

Tony Perkins Applauds Zambia For Imprisoning Gays - A hate group leader acts accordingly.

LGBTQ Elders more likely to be socially isolated, suffer from dementia than straight peers - Homophobia owns this. We need to take our people back.

A surrogate blackmailed a gay couple for parental rights of their newborn twin daughters - Simply some evil sh!t on the part of the mother. 

Michigan LGBTQ bills have failed for decades — but this year could be different - Fingers crossed.

Right-wing evangelical leaders were already lying hypocrites before Donald Trump took the Oval Office

Gary Bauer, who allegedly undermine the fight against AIDS during the 80s, is just one of many conservative evangelical leaders eager for the power Trump gives them.

Unlike the rest of American society, I refuse to catch the vapors while watching right-wing evangelical leaders debase their "integrity" in support of Donald Trump. To me, they were always hypocritical bloodsucking bullies who saw Jesus as a commodity in their quest for political power to shape America into their definition of a bastardized version of  "The Promised Land."

And I say this as an LGBTQ,  a member of the community they spent years stigmatizing as the "dreaded other" before Trump opened the door of the Oval Office to their clutching claws.

Look at some the cast of characters in this group:

Gary Bauer who, when he worked in the Reagan Administration, deliberately kept Surgeon General C. Everett Koop from meeting with the president about the AIDS crisis because he felt it was "God's punishment."

James Dobson, who once claimed that gays have thousands of partners

Franklin Graham, who once praised Vladimir Putin for persecuting the Russian LGBTQ community.

And then there is Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - i.e. crumb snatcher extraordinaire who has used her famous uncle to designate herself as chief token black of the conservative right. That entails claiming that marriage equality is responsible for natural disasters or blaming the LGBTQ community in general for supposed "black genocide."
