rinehart.jpgThat’s quite a comedown for an incumbent politician, to come in last in a three-way primary. But that’s exactly what happened to Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart, the politician who mailed out a crude campaign comic book. He was trounced in the Republican primary, garnering only 21% of the vote.

So now, Rinehart has plenty of time to perfect his artistic skills. That, and to defend himself in Oklahoma County District Court tomorrow against several felony campaign corruption charges stemming from he previous campaign.

Most Pathetic Comic Book Ever

We told you earlier about Oklahoma County commissioner Brent Rinehart’s new comic book that (literally) demonizes homosexuality — complete with the words “anal sodomy.”

Now via, we have two pages from that comic book. (Click on the images for the full-size version).


Rinehart says it took two months to write this comic book. I don’t think Marvel has anything to be worried about though. After two months, Rinehart’s still trying to figure out whether child molesters are “pedaphiles” or “pedifiles.”

Oklahoma Politician Writes Wacky Homophobic Comic Book

rinehart.jpgWhat is it about Oklahoma?

Fresh off Sally Kern’s rantings, we have Brent Rinehart, an Oklahoma County Commissioner, who has written a comic book demonizing (literally) homosexuals and “liberal good ol’ boys”.

You have to read this nutjobbery to believe it. And The Oklahoman has it here.

“This is one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen,” said Keith Gaddie, a political science professor at the University of Oklahoma. “I’ve never seen a comic book with the phrase ‘anal sodomy’ in it before. That was a new one for me.”

In addition to fighting “pedifiles” (spelling and grammar aren’t his strong points), Rinehart rails against his political opponents with the help of an angel (opponents have a demon on their side).

County Assessor Leonard Sullivan (not pictured in the comic) perhaps said it best:

“I’ve really encouraged him on more than one occasion to get professional help. He really needs it,” said Sullivan, who is not depicted in the comic.

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.

From the Inside: Focus on the Family’s “Love Won Out”

On February 10, I attended an all-day “Love Won Out” ex-gay conference in Phoenix, put on by Focus on the Family and Exodus International. In this series of reports, I talk about what I learned there: the people who go to these conferences, the things that they hear, and what this all means for them, their families and for the rest of us.

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

Tony Perkins’ Family Research Council submitted an Amicus Brief to the Maryland Court of Appeals as that court prepared to consider the issue of gay marriage. We examine just one small section of that brief to reveal the junk science and fraudulent claims of the Family “Research” Council.

Daniel Fetty Doesn’t Count

Daniel FettyThe FBI’s annual Hate Crime Statistics aren’t as complete as they ought to be, and their report for 2004 was no exception. In fact, their most recent report has quite a few glaring holes. Holes big enough for Daniel Fetty to fall through.
