'Gays hate the church' carelessly claims movement that'll claim anything to make Americans hate LGBT rights

by Jeremy Hooper

Claiming that efforts like the Not All Like That Christians Project are really efforts to win a PR war, the American Family Association's One News Now is now tellings its readers (who they hope to turn into activists and voters) that our movement has essentially declared the church to be our enemy:

Of course their basis for saying this is the simple fact that some LGBT people—a great many LGBT people, in fact—are themselves involved with a church. Since anti-LGBT evangelicals (and others of like mind) have determined that their version of faith is the only version of faith that matters, these same folks look on any theological perspective that finds room for LGBT people as some sort of targeted weapon against them. It's a mindset stunning in both its conceitedness and its myopia, to say nothing of its attached agenda.
