To me it's particularly objectionable that they use the lie that it's a choice to justify their condemnation and bigotry. Even if it were a choice, so what??? It's no one's business how someone else likes to make love, and they should just stfu.
Things were significantly veering toward normalcy until the recent extremist takeover. I think it will be a while before we see the WH bathed in the rainbow colors again. The root problem is a widespread failure (or refusal) of so many people to distinguish between fact and fantasy.
With our current administration I feel like we're living in bizarro opposite-world, where everything that once was good in now bad, and everything that once was bad is now good.
That's why we not only cannot be more like Canada but we cannot even act like an intelligent, empathetic, and rational country.
Shouldn't these hurricanes be landing in San Francisco, New York and LA? And what is the message god is sending when kids get cancer or AIDS? Why don't these self-righteous closet queens just suck a dick already and leave our LGBT brothers and sisters out of it?

And now here’s the evangelicals blaming hurricanes on the gays
I feel troubled to think that anyone would turn to such awful, despicable individuals and stories in the bible for moral guidance. It is far more misguided to suppose that these troubled, dysfunctional men expect me to think and do as they.
From the Slacktivist on Patheos, a feel-good statement about the Nashville Statement.
This theological mistake of “biblical literalism” somehow still manages to frame itself as a “conservative” approach to the Bible and to theology. My contention is that there is nothing “conservative” about it. This was not the hermeneutics of the apostles, of the early church, of the Ante-Nicene fathers, of Augustine, or of the Reformers. It did not gain a foothold anywhere in the church until it arose among white Protestants in America as a defense of slavery. This clumsy, proof-texting literalism is able to pose today as “conservative” because it has lingered here in America for centuries and theological mistakes — like politicians, ugly buildings, and prostitutes — “get respectable if they last long enough.” But just look at its record over the past 200 years of its ascendance among white American Protestants. It has been consistently, repeatedly, disastrously wrong. We know this. We’ve seen this before and we’re seeing it again. One, two, three strikes you’re out. It is bewildering to think that anyone would turn to such awful creatures for moral guidance. It is far more bewildering that these silly, silly men expect us all to do so.
