The anti-LGBT movement's goal is our criminalization. Stop pretending otherwise.

by Jeremy Hooper

If you don't believe that the American far-right would love to reinstate bans on homosexuality, you simply are not paying attention. Check out these new comments from the executive director of the legal organization that represents the other side in most every court case we face:

"When given the same choice the Supreme Court of the United States had in Lawrence vs. Texas, the Indian Court did the right thing," says [Benajmin Bull, executive director of Alliance Defending Freedom Global], which was choose to "protect society at large rather than give in to a vocal minority of homosexual advocates."
...
"America needs to take note that a country of 1.2 billion people has rejected the road towards same-sex marriage, and understood that these kinds of bad decisions in the long run will harm society," he adds."

"The road to same-sex marriage"? Hogwash! Mr. Bull (fitting name) is using that as cover for his support of what we are really talking about here: the day-to-day existence of human beings who are marked as criminals for who they are and how they love.

The good news about heinous decisions like the one in India is that the anti-LGBT movement often drops its guard at times of "victory." When they applaud this decision, which the UN is already noting as a violation of international law, I suggest we pay attention. And call them out.
