Eddie Long's Warped Standards

Postby Learning » Sat Sep 25, 2010 5:06 am

Here are Ted Haggard's confused remarks about Eddie Long's failings and warped standards. The worst thing isn't that Haggard and Long are hypocrites but that the things they claim are wrong. Religion is not the same thing as morality. Religious is not the same as moral.

Ted Haggard claims, "This is America. You can't use your religion to tyrannize others." Unfortunately, Haggard did not mean that people should not tyrannize gay people but that Troy Sanders should not demand truth from other preachers.

Andrew Shirvell: Out of Control Assistant AG

Postby Learning » Wed Sep 29, 2010 3:27 pm

Anderson Cooper interviewed the Assistant Attorney General from Michigan Andrew Shirvell about Shirvell's stalking and attacks on the character of the University of Michigan's gay student council president Chris Armstrong. In Shirvell's own words Shirvell has "criticized Chris." Plainly, Shirvell has not stuck to making logically relevant arguments about the issues Armstrong has raised. Shirvell tries to distract from his poor judgment and poor arguments with talk of First Amendment rights and Christianity.

Campaign Ads Shame Religious Authoritarians

A number of recent campaign ads have been shaming candidates based on their homophobia and religious authoritarianism.

Equality California's ad comes down hard on Meg Whitman for being against civil rights.

Brittany Novotny points out the unAmerican and hypocritical views of Kern. Novotny is a transgendered attorney running for office in Oklahoma.
