Is anyone really surprised that the "religious" right resorts to totally fabricated stories to gain sympathy? They are christians: Christian wannabe's; boy, do they have a long way to go.

Why would anyone be surprised? The technique of creating a hoax to gain sympathy was popularized by the queers long ago.

While the specific examples of discrimination against these figurehead, fundie martyrs are complete hysteria, the underlying truth is that talibangelical type Christians are increasingly regarded as society's rejects.

But treating evilgelical bigots as noxious, un Christian pariahs is not a violation of the law. Barring them from marriage, adoption, military service, hate crimes protections, or hiring would be.

A distinction the bigoted, christianist freeeks can't grasp.

The Christian Right are cousins to Islam. Both have extremists and terrorists. All GLBT people must stand up and push back. The battle is a fight for "... liberty and justice for ALL " not just the religious fanatics where every they may be.

Don't miss the soon-to-be-release Gospel of St. Reagan. It tells the story of how Jesus was kidnapped by leathermen and forced to bless their polyamorous same-sex weddings. How the disciples were forced by Pagans to make kinky sex toys. How gladiators who were caught praying to Jesus were locked into shower rooms with prides of horny homosexuals. How servants of the lord were thwarted, arrested, wounded, and tortured while attempting to save children from annihilation. How those proclaiming the glory and majesty of the lord were forcibly removed from their posts and forbidden to write or speak. All of this is coming to a Bible store near you.

Even they know they're wrong. If they didn't think so, they wouldn't feel they had to lie. The truth only works when you have a defensible position. They don't.

The Fundamentalist Agenda By Davidson Loehr
http://www.uuworld.org/2004/01/feature2.html

From 1988 to 1993, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences sponsored an interdisciplinary study known as The Fundamentalism Project, the largest such study ever done. More than 100 scholars from all over the world took part, reporting on every imaginable kind of fundamentalism. And what they discovered was that the agenda of all fundamentalist movements in the world is virtually identical, regardless of religion or culture.

They identified five characteristics shared by virtually all fundamentalisms....One scholar suggested that it's helpful to understand fundamentalism as religious fascism, and fascism as political fundamentalism. The phrase “overcoming the modern” is a fascist slogan dating back to at least 1941.

Jesus, I don't mean to bother you, but could you please remind some of your self-professed Christians that your Dad had a commandment that His followers not bear false witness against others. They've had a hard time remembering that one here lately.

Yes he did. He also commanded against false idols. Why do they worship a book instead of God?

Bigotry is actually more associated with right wing politics such as the Nazi's in Germany and more recently with the Republican right who espouse bigotry in their platform year after year. so your assertion that the left is bigoted is just a delusion. Such delusional behavior is often exhibited by cult members who cling to their "beliefs" in order to sustain their cult's viability. What's your excuse?

Umm, the nazis were a bunch of socialists, as are the modern day liberals. Nice try though.

Your liberal deception continues. I guess you people just can't help but lie.

Lying, cheating, and deceiving. The building blocks of the liberal movement.
