Read: A handy compendium of the anti-LGBT's movement's fake victims

by Jeremy Hooper

The Family Research Council, America's preeminent home for anti-LGBT animus and conservative political conventions where Republican elected officials/hopefuls are more than willing to cater to it, loves to talk about "religious freedom." Usually, this means a heavy emphasis on how they can best discriminate against LGBT people but cover it up so that it looks like something other than what it so obviously is.

In their latest analysis paper on the topic, FRC devotes not one but two of the document's four sections toward people who wanted the "right" to be anti-LGBT (and in some cases disgustingly so) but who are supposedly the "victims" for not having and maintaining the unfettered ability to carry out their discriminatory views within the fair and understandable confines of the shared public square:

It's a handy research document for Liberty University's history department. Or for Harvard's fiction majors.
