Liberty Counsel looks back at '13: We were downright obsessed with gay people

by Jeremy Hooper

This is the copy that the Liberty Counsel is using in its year-end, please-give-us-money message:

During this year, we filed federal lawsuits challenging laws in California and New Jersey that prevent minors from receiving Christian counseling to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions or behavior.

We continued to defend a Massachusetts pastor who faces charges from the radical group, Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG), for allegedly violating international law while visiting Uganda, simply because he spoke Biblical truth about same-sex activity.

Liberty Counsel filed two briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court on cases dealing with the definition of marriage.

Working strategically with other diverse groups, we gathered support for marriage from a variety of Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox clergy and leaders, who signed a statement to defend marriage and the family (See MarriageSolidarity.com).

Every single highlight focuses on LGBT people and denial of associated protections and freedom. Every one. They have a larger document with other bullet points, but clearly this is what LC wants it supporters to know about their work in 2013, as well as their path moving forward. I swear, Lambda Legal and the National Center For Lesbian Rights sent me donor letters that were less LGBT-centered.

Perhaps its time for LC to take the "Liberty" out of its name and just own its real purpose. "Lawyers Against Gays" could work. Plus it's acronym would fittingly speak to the movement's overall "LAG" in support.
