We are dealing with a veritable juggernaut of lies. The problem is that we don't take this juggernaut seriously. We laugh at the outrageous lies uttered about us, but we fail to see that by not publicly and forcefully refuting them, we give them a clear field to influence Americans.
Matt Barber needs to stop worrying about gays and read his Bible again. Apparently he is so consumed by thinking about the so-called sin of homosexuality that he seems to have forgotten the one about bearing false witness against one's neighbor.
While President Obama and Secretary Clinton struggled to put out fires ignited by a crude, anti-Muslim video made in California, just minutes from the White House high-profile "holy terrorists" were stoking those same flames with anti-Muslim rhetoric.
Naturally, religious-right groups aren't happy with the Obama administration over this new foreign aid policy, or with Clinton's U.N. speech. Amidst the usual whining about the so-called radical gay agenda, two statements stand out.
Sometimes I get frustrated because I feel that I'm not communicating just how hypocritical and hateful some members of the religious right actually are. Then someone like Matt Barber comes along and makes my job so much easier.
