Audio: TX Gov. Rick Perry says 'their maker' will hold Boy Scouts execs in account
Add Texas' Republican Governor to the list of commentators warning Boy Scout officials about their eternal futures:
Is there any debate tactic any weaker than this? I mean, threatening mortals with afterlife retribution—isn't that kind of weak? Perhaps even weaker than this…

Fortunately, Boy Scouts are usually good swimmers.
Heritage Foundation's Associate Director accuses me, GLAAD of character assassination
GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project, which I work on, consists of nothing more than the anti-gay commentators' own documented words. There is no virtually no editorializing; the project is simply a round up of things that these commentators have themselves put on the record. Every single quip is sourced to the text, audio, or video, often linking directly to their own web properties.
But according to the Heritage Foundation's Associate Director of Coalitions, I am both a "hate monger" and a "character assassin":
Interestingly enough, I have never used the word "hatemonger" to refer to someone on the other side. Not once in nine years. Just as with my work at #GLAADCAP, I focus all of my energy on the tangible words and actions of my opposition, not their character or individual motivations. Even my ardent opponents know and admit this about me.
But go ahead, Mr. Nichols—try to parlay our simple noting of a person's own words into some sort of unfair "attack." I'm more than confident in how that debate will play out with an increasingly receptive public.
Anti-gay kids book author Amber Dee Parker: Gay couples need to break their mortgages and flee 'the Enemy'
Earlier this week, I introduced you to Amber Dee Parker and her anti-gay children's book, which both the American Family Association's Tim Wildmon and the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg have endorsed.

I'm totally seeing her next book: "Heather Had Two Mommies, But Mommy #1 Listened to Faith-Driven Heterosexuals' Personally-Held Condemnations And Decided to Get An "Ex-gay" Therapist And A Property Lawyer Instead."
Tony Perkins: Gay Boy Scouts run counter to science, nature, human history
Tony Perkins on the Boy Scouts decision:
"We do need to reach out in love to everyone. You know, we allow everyone into our church and we want everyone to come into our church. But we're not going to celebrate someone who is engaged in a behavior that we know runs counter to the teachings of scripture and human history and to science and to nature. We're not going to celebrate adultery. We're not going to celebrate polygamy. We're not going to celebrate promiscuity. And so why should we celebrate homosexuality? And that's what they're calling us to do"
Don't worry, gay boys—no actual science was involved in the making of this denigration.
