Tweet The violence against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Russia is not intrinsic to its history. It is a relatively new poison that has seeped into the Russian culture and church, compliments in no small part to American extremists who have been visiting that country over the past decade. [The situation has become […]
Tweet In the 1998, at the height of the marriage of Evangelical Christianity and conservative Republican politics, another marriage was being hailed as “proof” that gay people could indeed overcome their homosexuality. John and Anne Paulk, former gay and lesbian people, were displayed on the cover of Newsweek magazine with the header “Gay for Life? […]
Tweet Focus on the Family, a conservative Christian ministry, wants high school and college-aged students to join them in their “truth telling” sacred bullying-in-Jesus-Name of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community during Day of Dialogue. Even when words are wrapped in heart-themed paper and tied with a “Jesus-loves-you” ribbon, if there is something rotten […]

“Day of Dialogue” from Focus on the Family is not What Jesus Would Do. This is a call to action for Christian youth to target GLBT youth with a “God has a better plan for you” message. I’m all for a God loves you conversation, but not a conversation that directly targets the most vulnerable of the vulnerable in our society–the GLBT youth.
Tweet [A fore note: I decided to headline this post partially with the exact title of this highly offensive tract. I want to hit the top of the search engines and maybe get some readers that are looking to “Medical Consequences of What Homosexuals Do” as an authoritative piece. I know it is offensive, but […]
The Ten Lies about the GLBT Community Told by Conservative Hate Groups | A Straight Christian Perspective
