Why anti-gays are losing: Because their commentators insist Satan is our thought leader

by Jeremy Hooper

From conservative commentator Paul Kokoski:

The Bible tells us that Satan has the ability to "appear as an angel of light." Nowhere is this more evident than in the radical attempt to promote homosexuality in society today as something good. For the purpose of deceiving Mankind and destroying souls, Satan has thus given the homosexual lobby the following 10 commandments.

Kokoski proceeds to take ten common talking points of the anti-equality movement (e.g. gays are against free speech, gays make unfair race comparisons, etc.) and frame them as being handed down to the LGBT equality movement by a malevolent mastermind who answers to the name Beelzebub. And Mr. Kokoski doesn't mean it as an allegory: he really believes (and states) that "Satan is among us," giving people like me my daily marching orders.

As someone who actually does love free speech more than people like Mr. Kokoski would ever admit or allow, let me say that I, for one, hope Mr. Kokoski and his likeminded Satan-blamers never quiet down, as I believe (/know) that these attempts to claim the Devil's pitchfork as the equality movement's greatest motivator are one major reason why polls are skyrocketing up in favor of those who know equal rights of citizenship and daily peace of mind to be the actual drivers of our current civil rights fight. Certain circles might respond favorably to the illusory motif of a red-horned man who has chosen LGBT people for his dodge ball team. I'm confident that larger circles use these outrageous claims to glean needed insight into the professional inequality movement, its base, and its general tone.
