Focus on the Family's anti-intellectual #glaadcap response: Offends me more than my ethics will allow me to tell you

by Jeremy Hooper

GLAAD's Commentator Accountability Project is 100% about more conversation, not less. It's funny that those whose views are accurately noted in the project refuse to hear that, instead repeating the same, tired "censorship" claims in a singular voice:

Gary Schneeberger, Focus’ vice president of communications, said the biblical view of marriage and sexuality is badly needed for balance in mainstream media.

“What Focus on the Family’s analysts and experts bring to the national discussion in their media appearances are reasoned, passionate and compassionate insights that help families make sense of, and make their mark in, the world around them,” he said. “Our views on issues like same-sex marriage and the sanctity of human life are mainstream Christian positions — and in most cases, majority Christian positions. It is always our goal, when expressing those viewpoints, to do so in a way that upholds God’s truth, yes, but also models Christ’s love.”

Schneeberger added that GLAAD’s campaign was “rather chilling.”

“This is an attempt to stifle freedom of speech and freedom of religion by trying to intimidate the media into forfeiting their constitutional right to freedom of the press,” he explained. They’re seeking to saw three of the five legs of freedom off the stool that holds up the First Amendment.”

“America was founded on debate and discussion; that formula has worked pretty well for us for more than 230 years. It makes you wonder why GLAAD would want to eradicate it.”

Oh, Gary, please. The "silencing" claim again? It's a lie on its face! Get a new script.
