He acted like Pinocchio, Wooden; but his anti-LGBT connections are real, human

by Jeremy Hooper

Like me, Alvin McEwen sees how our movement sometimes limits itself by looking at those who advocate against us as if they exist on their own islands. In truth, the islands are most always part of a connected chain, the likes of which will lead right to the top of prominent groups, churches, networks, and political parties, if one traipses the tail long enough.

Towards the end of the week, I showed you how the intensely-GOP-connected Tony Perkins was courting Wooden's rhetoric on the AFA Radio show that he hosts with Tim Wildmon. Alvin is now focusing on the connections between Wooden, NOM, and the overall campaign to ban marriage in the Tar Heel State. Check it out:

Last week, North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden shocked a lot of people with his blatantly inaccurate comments that gay men have so much sex that they require surgery and diapers.

But while folks either laughed, rolled their eyes, or gagged in disgust, it's important that we all don't miss an important connection here.

Wooden is one of the pastors who is teaming up with the National Organization for Marriage to pass that awful anti-family, anti-marriage equality amendment in North Carolina.
