Catholic.org latest to brand GLAAD with 'censorship' claims; latest to show pressing need for OwnWordsAphobia cure

by Jeremy Hooper

Spilling almost two thousand words without ever accurately addressing the project, its guiding motivation, or the merits attached to the rhetoric that the project highlights, Deacon Keith Fournier takes to Catholic Online's web space to join the ranks of those determined to turn sunlight into censorship:

In a sign of their growing intolerance of people who hold positions other than those of the Homosexual Cultural Revolution, the Media Watchdog Organization "GLAAD" (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) has issued a blacklist of commentators. This effort is called the "Commentator Accountability Project". The blacklist includes some people I know and admire. It also includes some of my favorite commentators in both the Catholic and evangelical protestant communities. For example, both Robert George and Chuck Colson have been blacklisted.

We will not be censored from sharing the truth about the dignity of every human life or the truth about marriage and the family and society founded upon it. GLAAD will not succeed in curtailing our right to contend in the Public Square for the truth.

What these folks don't realize? Every time they express outrage at this, a project that quite literally does nothing more than compile their commentators' own words, they only give us fuel. They only justify the project.

Being outraged over our opinions or advancements is one thing. But outrage over words that they themselves either spoke or wrote in order to build their public profiles? That's an oddly new form of "pro-family" spin. It's been fascinating to watch!

*Also humorous that Catholi.org coupled the above piece with a clip from KEvin McCullough, the man who responded to his own GLAAD inclusion by claiming the organization wants him dead.
