Reporters covering the Western Conservative Summit, a gathering that attracted 4,000 people to the Colorado Convention Center over the weekend, did a good job spotlighting the gay bashing that permeated the event.

The anti-gay right seem to be painting a portrait of victimhood in anticipation of further progress by the LGBT community and the goal is most likely to stop this progress. But I have one question. How in the hell can anyone forget how we got to this point?

The anti-gay Family Research Council has a new video about how the gays are ruining everything, what with their pesky marrying and buying of cakes and, well, simply existing. And this video isn't just a video -- it's part of a crafty advertising campaign.

All across the nation, business owners are refusing service to LGBT people in an attempt to build a firewall protecting discrimination by hiding behind the concept of religious freedom. It has become clear that interpretation of the Bible can now be used to refuse service to any group.

Let Me Answer Your Questions, Justice Roy Moore

Maybe it is futile to try to explain this to Justice Moore. Would he ever be able to understand that someone who is bisexual is capable of monogamy? Or that gender identity is not linked to sexual orientation? Or that incest is not the same thing as homosexuality? Trying to explain these concepts to Roy Moore is like explaining string theory to a clam.

Why Do Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal and Other GOP Politicians Continue Bowing to Anti-LGBT Extremists?

J. Richard Cohen | Posted 11.26.2014 | Politics
J. Richard Cohen

Why do politicians like Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal still think it's OK to speak to groups that vilify the LGBT community with outrageous propaganda and demonizing falsehoods? If racism is anathema to the GOP, why isn't overt anti-LGBT bigotry equally repellent?
