In 1998 fifteen religious-right organizations launched a huge advertising campaign to promote "pray away the gay" programs. Anti-gay activist Robert Knight called it the "the Normandy landing in the larger cultural wars." But things didn't quite work out as Knight had hoped.
Last week, Knight made the incredibly wild accusation that allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military would lead to "forced abortions." This week, he tries to top that accusation with one attacking the Log Cabin Republicans.
There are times when religious right figures say things so nastily homophobic, so unbelievable that it's a waste to decipher the comment. The only thing you can do is just allow the comment to speak for itself.
Peter LaBarbera, head of the anti-gay group Americans for Truth is attempting to start the "Truth Academy," which he says is designed for instructing youths lessons in "combating the gay agenda" at a cost of $99 a head.
