The latest victim of anti-gay rhetoric

I’d like all of you self-righteous anti-gay crusaders to look into the eyes of fourteen year-old Kenneth Weishuhn, Jr.

Do you see any evil there? Do you see any perversion there? Do you see any threat there?

Do you see the eyes of a young man with a life of unlimited potential cut short by the anti-gay bullying your vile rhetoric fuels and encourages? No, you probably don’t see that young man.

Hate is blinding, as you continually demonstrate. Perhaps that’s why Bryan Fischer and his American Family Association (AFA), Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council (FRC), and Peter LaBarbera and his Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) are all listed as “hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Center because of their repeated use of stereotypes and lies in combination with bogus “research” to demean and degrade gay and lesbian Americans and, along with their brethren, blame them for pretty much anything and everything.

You incite and justify violence. You’re a disgrace to the religion you claim to champion. (full text).

The report, entitled “People and the Planet” was published on April 26th and followed up by a flurry of articles by the usual suspects dutifully parroting the society’s dire warnings about the future of humanity in a crowding world. Paul Ehrlich was even trotted out to chastise the Society for not going far enough in their report, instead intimating that 5 billion people would have to disappear from the face of the earth for the population to be at a “sustainable” level;
