Wherein we save our breath

by Jeremy Hooper

 Good As You Images  Good As You Images  Good As You Images Alanc-1Speaking to Agape Press One News Now about proposed federal hate crimes protections for the LGBT community, professional "ex-gay" Alan Chambers says today:

"We believe that under this type of legislation, we would begin to see our religious liberties and freedoms erode, unable to share our own testimonies at some point, because of people deeming what we say as hateful or hate speech"

Sentiment to which we tersely reply:

"Oh, well you're wrong."

Now, you may think we're taking the easy way out by offering up such a short, direct a refutation of Mr. Chambers' logic, and in many ways we are. However, after pointing out until we're blue in the face that such protections would not (a) censor speech or thought, despite what the "pro-family movement would have you believe or (b) stifle any religious freedom other than the one in which a gay man is literally beaten with a Bible or cross, we have no problem just flat out saying what more need to say in order to nip these flawed "pro-family" arguments in the bud. In this case, Mr. Chambers: YOU ARE SIMPLY WRONG!
