AFA president says gay activism is 'an evil conspiracy'

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 At 12.12.06 PmResponding to Southern Baptist Convention spokesman Russell Moore's claim that gays are not the enemy and that people on his side should simmer down a bit, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon looks him right and the eye and says, "yeah, no thanks." In fact, Wilmon insists that we LGBT activists are, in fact, engaged in "an evil conspiracy":

"[Moore] says to Baptists, 'Love your gay and lesbian neighbors.' Nobody has a problem with that,” the AFA leader said on AFR. “Then he says that gays and lesbians are not part of an 'evil conspiracy.' I agree with that on an individual basis. Now, there are people in that movement who want to force their lifestyle on the rest of us. That is an evil conspiracy." [ONN]

Evil? Well that's just an opinion. A nasty opinion, but an opinion nonetheless.

But as for "conspiracy"? Well, that's just ridiculous. I mean, we LGBT activists aren't hiding anything. We're quite overt about what we want demand: FULL EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW. Period. When we achieve that and when we gain the peace of mind that we always should have had (and that people like Mr. Wildmon have dedicated their adult lives to denying us), then we will go sell fruit on the side of the road or something. But not until we win.
