And the 2nd misplaced claim of #glaadcap silencing comes from…

by Jeremy Hooper

…Peter Sprigg:

Just as with Focus on the Family's Fleece and Liberty Counsel's Barber, let me remind the Family Research Council's Sprigg: Nobody wants to silence or censor you. In truth, GLAAD wants everyone -- AND I MEAN EVERYONE! -- to know that Peter Sprigg:

- Says: “The most effective way of reducing teen suicide attempts is not to create a 'positive social environment' for the affirmation of homosexuality. Instead, it would be to discourage teens from self-identifying as gay, lesbian, or bisexual."

- Said: “I would much prefer to export homosexuals from the United States than to import them into the United States, because we believe that homosexuality is destructive to society.”

- Says: "I think there would be a place for criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior.”

And so on and so forth. SEE PETER'S GLAAD CAP PROFILE HERE.

GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project is all about more conversation, more discussion, more transparency, and yes -- more accountability. That it bothers people like Peter to have their very own, fully documented and source records hoisted for public view? That says more than any of us ever could. Why would we ever want to silence that?!?
