Have you noticed that these days, since it’s no longer acceptable to say openly that you’re against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality, extremists are resorting to lies and fear tactics?
The radical right says hate crimes laws will “silence people of faith” and put pastors in jail. Newt Gingrich warned on Fox News that a “gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence…” Pat Boone called pro-equality protesters “sexual jihadists” similar to terrorists. They’ve taken out full-page ads in national papers and blanketed the talk shows.
We can’t let these lies go unanswered, especially now that we have a chance to make real progress on LGBT equality.
EndTheLies.org is a new website showing some of the worst offenders.
I just signed their petition to stand up for truth and equality. Will you take a moment and join me?
