Mr. Burroway, you must stop posting articles like this. You are overloading my schadenfreude quotient. I’m in danger of feeling pity for Maggie and Brian.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA, maybe when all 31 states who have voted on my rights apologize and reverse those votes.

Maggie Gallagher has written and article of the same title, over at

You should see the comment threads all their anti gay article generate.

Dr. Michael Brown’s article earlier this week had the title:
“The Hypocrisy of GLAAD.”

He and Joe Jervis had a bit of exchange. What seriously angers me is that Brown does so much spin, he could make anything look like butter.
He spins rejections of his dreck books as publishers being ‘afraid to publish the truth’.
I guess he doesn’t understand that legit publishers can’t peddle fiction as non fiction.

He and others spin the CAP plan as silencing Christians, and it’s the gay folks that are the ones being offensive.

Rather than own their words, they are deflecting them as the fault of gay people and how dare those gay people be so intolerant in their agenda to persecute!

Butter, I tells ya. BUTTER everywhere!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

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.

Testing The Premise: Are Gays A Threat To Our Children?

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. This has tremendous consequences, not just for gay men and women, but more importantly for the safety of all our children.

Straight From The Source: What the “Dutch Study” Really Says About Gay Couples

Anti-gay activists often cite the “Dutch Study” to claim that gay unions last only about 1½ years and that the these men have an average of eight additional partners per year outside of their steady relationship. In this report, we will take you step by step into the study to see whether the claims are true.

The FRC’s Briefs Are Showing
