Don Schmierer “sets the record straight”

schmiererWe tried diligently to get Don Schmierer to not go to Uganda. He went anyway.

We tried desperately to get Don Schmierer to speak out against the legislation proposed in Uganda to execute gay Ugandans or imprison them for life. He was silent.

In fact, Schmierer ignored us and the results of his international anti-gay activism until he was exposed on Rachel Maddow’s show. Then he issued a statement that appeared to be in conflict with the facts as we knew them to be.

Now he has told the Fox affiliate in Sacramento that it’s all a misunderstanding.

He says he thought he was preaching about open communication in parenting.

But now that his inbox is being flooded with hate-mail he says it’s all a misunderstanding.

“I’m trying to help people understand the differences and how to communicate and how to listen to each other.”

If Mr. Schmierer wishes to communicate, he knows how to reach us. If he wishes to clear up any misunderstandings, he can explain why his version of events contradict the video, news reports, and first hand accounts from the conference. We’d be happy to let him set the record straight – accurately, this time.

Between him and Maggie Gallagher’s complaints regarding the televising of the Prop. 8 court trial these folks REALLY can’t deal with accountability!

Come on people. You stuck your nose into government policy, and exclusively for the purpose of complicating gay lives.
Gay people who were at peace with YOU, with just getting married and catching some joy and prosperity in life.
None of which would effect your own pursuit to do the same.
That is if your pursuit of happiness is at the expense of that of gay folks.

Gay folks have tackled DUE PROCESS OF LAW, therefore transparency and seeing the process of law at work and it’s consequences is A RIGHT to all who have participated in the outcome of that process.

Lively and Gallagher are the utmost of COWARDS. Just. Cowards.

And they call their activity ‘fighting for morals and marriage’ respectively.

So, if they think themselves such committed soldiers.
Stand the fu*k up and OWN what you sowed!

oops, grammatical error.

That should read “unless your pursuit of happiness is at the expense of gay folks.”

Sorry. It’s early, hadn’t had the coffee yet!

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers. This story is a stark reminder that there are severe and damaging consequences when therapists try to ensure that boys will be boys.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.

Anti-gay activists often charge that gay men and women pose a threat to children. In this report, we explore the supposed connection between homosexuality and child sexual abuse, the conclusions reached by the most knowledgeable professionals in the field, and how anti-gay activists continue to ignore their findings.
