Audio: Bored on an apparently too factual weekday, Richard Land pushes 'gays are sexually abused' lie

by Jeremy Hooper

Longtime Southern Baptist something-or-other Richard Land is filling in this week for Tony Perkins on the Family Research Council's daily talk show. As you will hear in this clip, he is keeping the rabidly anti-gay myths alive while the boss is away. Right Wing Watch brings us the clip:

So offensive to both LGBT people and all of the elders we encountered while growing up. Implicit in this baseless claim that the far-right loves to cite without backing is the idea that someone close enough to us to have access made some sort of untoward advance at the expense of both our innocence and heterosexuality. Because it's not enough for them to go after us and our adult rights. No, no—they have to call into question and demean our childhood memories, family members, older friends, and just about anyone who they can "find out" as having "made us" who we are.

But they're of course the victims, y'all.
