TBP: Scott Lively doesn't want you to think he hates you

Please check out my latest piece at The Bilerico Project about the Family's role in Scott Lively's favorite "Kill the Gays" bill in Uganda.

Scott Lively doesn't want you to think he hates you:
"As the Ugandan 'Kill the gays' bill travels toward passage there, all stops are being pulled out to try to end its path toward becoming a law. Rachel Maddow--who has been following the bill since we first heard about it--has been calling to task the American Evangelical leaders who it seems may have empowered the conservative strain within the Ugandan government to pass this bold and vicious bill.

First, Maddow and an army of Progressive bloggers forced Rick Warren to come out staunchly against the bill, then last night, Rachel finally interviewed Bob Hunter, a member of the very powerful Evangelical 'Family,' the secret 'C Street' organization from Washington DC.

Rachel gives a quick shout-out to the man who organized the anti-gay conference in Uganda that eventually gave birth to the 'Kill the gays' bill, but Box Turtle Bulletin's Jim Burroway has recently given us a bit deeper look of the seeds that Scott Lively sewed in Uganda, earlier this year."

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."


-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…
