Audio: Urinal retentive: Focus, SBC fret over peeing privilege

by Jeremy Hooper

Focus on the Family and their allies/donor base at the Southern Baptist Convention are yet again taking an ordinance solely designed to prevent discrimination and hardship for the public and making it all about them. This time it's in Nashville, where "it soon may be a little harder going to work" if you you are someone who thinks your heterosexuality and/or cisgender identity earns you and your tax dollars a public privilege:


*AUDIO SOURCE: Nashville Bathroom Bill [FOtF]

Favorite part? When announcer Stuart Shepard dismissively refers to LGBT activists' claims of tolerance (even though most of us would actually say respect), and then follows that up with disagreement from the SBC president, as if there's any sort of surprise there. The real shock will come when an SBC president whose religion has been supported by this country in every way stops playing the victim and starts accepting responsibility for his organization's own unending onslaughts.
