The Last Tea Party

Reading the Tea Leaves.

How “Operation American Spring” Turned a Once Powerful Political Movement into the Laughing Stock of the Country.

“The Tea Party died because they made the fatal mistake of all hard-bent ideological political movements: they took their own paranoid gibberish too seriously and expected vast segments of the American public to go along with them.”

Prop 8 overturned … again

Latest Legal Stand on Prop 8 in California.

Prop 8 has been overturned again but the US Right carries on the fght against equal rights.

It was in August 2010 that Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that Prop 8, which outlaws same-sex marriage, was unconstitutional. On February 7, 2012, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Judge Walker’s ruling 2-1..

Villains: On US gay-conversion tactics … again

The US Christian Right are at it again, this week in London

The organisation Core Issues Trust is playing host to US Reparative Therapy speaker and claiming it is only trying to help people who do not want to be gay

They are interested in a promoting an alternate reality in which you wish for something and it is made so – as long as an appropriate Bible quotation is tacked onto the end.

Villains: Linda Harvey

There are no fairies at the bottom of the garden!

The bizarre world of Linda Harvey, where homosexuals do not exist and where homosexuals (even though they do not exist) are out to take away the rights of heterosexuals and Scout leaders.

Harvey assumes the mantle of Jesus’ PR, a role to which she adds her own particular insights, although I’m not sure that she has work-shopped her thoughts with the Boss …

Apple finally pulls “gay cure” app after six weeks

Apple hosts “gay cure” app for an unacceptable 6 weeks.

The fascism of the Christian Right was voiced through Apple’s App Store, and the company had an abysmally slow response when called to remove it.

The ex-gay proselytizers view it a bad consumer choice, and instead promote a good consumer choice, their own Cosmic Cash Machine, the Lord.

Uganda: ‘recruiting’ of homosexuals paranoia

Outing homosexuals in Uganda and a call for hangings.

On the insane homophobia in the political landscape of Uganda, and its unacceptable call to murder all homosexuals, etc.

This is selective Christianity at work again: they hunt and peck through the Bible finding quotes that support their prejudices, and in so doing find them.

The striking down of Prop 8

Prop 8 is finally struck down by rational judge.

The defeat of Proposition 8 in California: what does it mean for the rest of the Western world?

The greater question is simple: you either believe in equality or you don’t. You either believe in freedom or you don’t. The problem with such grand words is that they need to be defined before they can mean anything at all.

Villains: Tony the Messiah and the Anti-Gay U.S. Preachers

A critique of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

Why, asks Rebel Scum, is Tony Blair Faith Foundation forging links with the Christian Right in the United States? Is the soldier of Christ once again at war with the idea of democracy, and displacing it in favour of “faith factors”?

The militaristic Blair, a soldier of Christ, calls this latest mission a “faith offensive”. There is something rather apt about that phrase.

Villains: American Family Association’s “culture wars”

The American Family Association gets in a tizzy about the so-called “culture wars”.

Another home-grown Church-Movement gets out of hand. The American Family Association are now after Pepsi, following its attacks on Ikea, Heinz, and McDonald’s, for “promoting homosexuality”. Whatever that may mean.

There are, according to this document, a lot of scary things these highly organized homos and their dread “agenda” advocate. They want “access to all programs of the Boy Scouts of America”!
