Audio: Listen to this ADF spinmeister and his anti-gay spin

by Jeremy Hooper

Jeremy Tedesco of the anti-gay Alliance Defending Freedom wants you to know that religious organizations don't actually want to discriminate against gay people. Oh, no, no, you silly thing. Instead, they just want the "right" to penalize you for not being able to meet their "standards when it comes to sexual morality and sexual conduct":

FULL: Focus on the Family

So enraging! The anti-gay, religious-driven, pro-discrimination crowd is so determined to make their obvious hostilities seem like what they so obviously are that they act like those of us who refuse to accept their position are just too dense to understand the nuance and gradation of their view. They know that being outwardly against a minority population and that population's ability to move freely within society is a terrible, no good, very bad thing, and they know that history always—always, every time, in every case—looks back with remorse on the long held acceptance of such biases. To get around that inconvenient truth, they unleash word salads like the above because they want to be able to take away our rights and absolve their consciences too.

But the truth is that these distinctions are not clever. These explanations are not true. These positions are not more noble when you separate the human being from his or her capacity for love, relationship, marriage, and family. We see right through it—and so does the future.
