CNN Discovers Existence Of Anti-Gay Christians

(Bryan Fischer bashing hairdressers live on CNN)

Feel like being frustrated? Just read this bizarrely timid CNN article about how OMG maybe some Christian preachers are a little over-the-top with the anti-gay stuff? The article offers, like, three examples of isolated weirdos saying crazy things about the fags, and a whole lot of apologists saying, oh gosh, not all Christians are like that. Tsk. The existence of intensively homophobic Christianity is portrayed in the article as something isolated, unusual, lamented by the majority.

Not even mentioned: the whole Christian cottage industry of full-time gay-bashers, the Bryan Fischers, the Pete LaBarberas, the Matt Stavers, the Brian Browns, the One Million Moms, Focus on the Family, American Family Association, etc., etc. All those people and groups who basically make their livings by making so many trips to the anti-gay well that they've worn a trough to it a mile deep are completely ignored in the article. Isn't that something? I mean... they don't even mention Fred Phelps!

Anyway, it's kind of a hilarious article.

Dear CNN: Welcome to forever. For modern times, please familiarize yourselves with Bill Donahue and Pat Robertson and work up from there.

Every time I turn on CNN they're running commercials. I know more about the reverse mortgages than I do the situation in Syria.

But it's a double-edged sword, isn't it?

If they're *too* forthcoming about the bigots, they'll get called out by the cranks as being anti-religion. It'll be all "WAR ON JESUS!!" or whatever. And then all of the oxygen gets sucked out of the room and what it is the crazies are actually saying gets displaced by victimization.

Hopefully, more and more of the nice kind will continue to step forward to tell the cranks to STFU and stop speaking in their name.
