Video: Christians are under attack, says 8th speaker of 2-day-long summit wherein Christians attacked LGBT people
More from Liberty University's deplorable anti-LGBT summit. This portion focused on the far-right's desire to have their religion protected from discrimination, yet to use the very same thing to discriminate against LGBT people; to collect public monies yet treat some of the public unfairly; to host public accommodations yet not accommodate certain portions of the population; to have Christian schools where they can bar LGBT students and pro-equality teachings, but also seek that exact same kind of mindset in public schooling; and to generally foster the mentality that they, the ones who are HOLDING A F***ING CONFERENCE FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF PUMMELING LGBT PEOPLE AND THEIR RIGHTS, are somehow the victims in this so-called "culture war."
Begin heterosexist misrepresentations:

This is always the strategy of those promoting the anti-gay agenda. They project what they are doing on others, attack others for doing it, and deny they themselves are doing the same thing. They do this to create a smokescreen to hide the evil they are doing. Like the gay holocaust they are trying to spark in Uganda and other countries in Africa.

OMG! That Massachusetts crap AGAIN??!!! Catholic Charities could still discriminate - they just couldn't take public money AND discriminate! And it was the local bishop - not the courts - that closed their doors! Rene is a lying bitch!

It's really incredible how these speakers can completely ignore the obvious elephant in the room. And, NO! I'm not talking about Barber, this time. Not only have the religious used (abused?) anti-discrimination laws, but now they want to be exempt from them. They want no one to be able to discriminate against them for their chosen religiosity (and rightfully so, generally speaking), but they don't want those same anti-discrimination laws to used against their obvious (egregious / flagrant) discrimination of others.
The establishment clause protects them from gov't interference, while they are in their church. But not when they are an entity in a diverse marketplace. That is where anti-discrimination laws protect them, and EVERYONE else.

Yes the Mass crap again. I'm surprised they didn't bring up the New Jersey Church forced to rent their pavilion.
And wisely they disabled comments on the YouTube video. I flagged it as hate speech anyhow, and rated it one star.

Typical of Conservative Christians, cry about the denial of free speech and how your freedom of expression is violated, post a video about it and disable comments so that others cannot exercise their free speech rights to show that their claims are worthless.

To the Xians: Hey, I didn't start this war, but it's ON! ;o) Personally, what these arguments tell ME is that these gay people involved are getting sick of being refused equal treatment by those who want to discriminate against us under the possity of religious "values" and "morals', and they don't want to have to take this shit anymore! Indeed, that Christian conference addendum of "no compromise" is chilling, because it seems to signal, on behalf of Christianity to everyone in the US., that "it's our way, or no way!!!" That's dreadfully offensive! And, what the hell is with the INSISTENT determination of sexualizing the Gay community and making us seem like an inappropriate topic for children?! How offensive!!!
Say, does anyone know how *I* can start discriminating against Christians?! ;o)
