Historicity and objective facts are SO twentieth cenetury.

Per Religion Dispatches:

In a very different take on Human Rights Day, an anti-LGBT manifesto dubbed the “Cape Town Declaration” was released by the International Organization for the Family, a new group headed by Brian Brown, who already serves as president of the US based National Organization for Marriage and the World Congress of Families, which is now described as a project of the IOF. Brown has been trying to launch an international version of NOM for a few years and it seems as if he has done so, with a declaration whose signers pledge “to resist the rising cultural imperialism of Western powers whose governments seek nothing less than the ideological colonization of the family.” Brown’s goal is to gather two million signatures for the declaration within a year; among early signers are religious leaders like Foley Beach, Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America; Catholic Bishop Emmanuel Badejo of Ojo, Nigeria; Lawrence Khongy, pastor of Faith Community Baptist Church in Singapore; and Orthodox Priest Josiah Trenham, a California-based World Congress of Families speaker.

One of the more fetching (for humor, not truth value) explanations I've run across is "libidinous dyslexia."

Holy crap!  The "Spiritual Science Research Foundation?"  That says it all right there.  The ultimate authority on everything spiritual, science, or gay.  

I admit I have a bit of a nice female touch in me, but it's not a ghost.  It's me!  And it's very alive!

I didn't know that about Winco - makes me like them better.

I stopped supporting any church years ago, when I saw that they did more harm than good.  I found-out the "salvation" Army were anti-gay a couple of years ago, and that just added to my being against them.

One of the main reasons I shop at WinCo is they do not allow The "salvation" Army to harass us on WinCo property.

Salvation Army: Anti-Gay Christian Church Not Worthy of Support

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 2, 2016 at 10:46pm

Talk about cognitive dissonance -"a gay midwest blue-eyed blond convert to Islam"!

That Pierce quote seems apt, excepting that "destructive policies" is a couple of orders of magnitude of an understatement.

The usually at least soemwhat ebullient Charles Pierce wrapped up one of today's blogs with this cheery thought:

The only true resistance to whatever comes next is sadly confined to a civic and political imagination that has grown stunted and crippled, and a commitment to truth and to political involvement that long ago surrendered to distraction, flash, and meaningless intellectual junk food. The democratic muscles needed for pushback have atrophied almost to the point of uselessness, and that's alright because the institutions through which those muscles could be used are shells of themselves. Get ready for four (or eight) years of empty spectacle in the service of destructive policies that the president-elect doesn't care enough to understand.

If Bill Donohue wants to trade punches with Dan Barker and Annie Laurie, he's going to wish he hadn't.  I know them both, and they are lovely people, decent and polite ... and They Don't Back Down from ANYONE.
