A 'Values Bus' Who's Who

by Jeremy Hooper

And now another shot from the so-called Values Bust tour, which is currently en route from a marriage rally in NH to a similar rally (this time with NOM) in Rhode Island:

Some notes on those pictured:

-Kevin Smith: Heads an organization that pushes "ex-gay" therapy as its one and only "homosexuality resource."

-Rick Santorum: Probably the most anti-LGBT voice to ever grace the U.S. Senate (sorry Helms). Infamous for likening same-sex couples to "man on dog."

-Karen Testerman: Once compared gays to "shoplifters and drug addicts"; used to head the same group that Kevin Smith now heads.

-Tony Perkins: Heads an organization that is responsible for positioning gays as a kid-threatening disaster in need of "ex-gay" therapy, churning out brochures that compare same-sex marriages to those bonds which might exist between a man and a horse (complete with horse photo), directly likening equality activists to terrorists, calling LGBT rights a battle of "good versus evil," saying DADT repeal proponents are "willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby," claiming gay teens kill themselves because they know that they're "abnormal," saying the gay activists who challenge FRC are "held captive by the enemy," writing that same-sex marriage will be "opening the door to all manner of moral and social evil, tweeting that gays don't need to "be a slave to feelings," and fundraising around the idea that gay kids are immoral and telling them otherwise is "disgusting," and calling for U.S. gays to be either "exported" or criminalized (to name just a few of FRC's more recent attacks).

-Bob Emrich: Posted all kinds of really extreme "ex-gay" videos to his YouTube channel; made a few trips to Uganda (and has another one scheduled for next month), where he pushed some extreme rhetoric from advocates of what became known as the "kill the gays" bill; co-headed the campaign to strip Maine of marriage equality.
