    Gay Nose Threatens Christian Tent!

    Evangelical activists are pressing Republican lawmakers to strip protections for LGBT+ people from an anti-lynching bill.
    By Nick Duffy (PinkNewsUK)

    The Justice for Victims of Lynching Act cleared the US Senate on December 20 in a rare unanimous vote.

    The bill would allow lynchings—bias-motivated mob killings without legal authority—to be charged as a federal hate crime for the first time.

    However, evangelical law firm Liberty Counsel is upset because a portion of the bill includes protections for LGBT people as well as ethnic minorities.

    In addition to “race, colour, religion, and national origin,” the law also covers crimes against “gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability” motivated by hatred.

    Democratic lawmakers Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, who are both African-American, were behind the legislation.

    But Liberty Counsel president Mat Staver told fundamentalist Christian news outlet OneNewsNow that he is lobbying lawmakers in the House of Representatives to have the LGBT language removed from the law.

    Staver claimed: “The old saying is once that camel gets the nose in the tent, you can’t stop them from coming the rest of the way in.

    “And this would be the first time that you would have in federal law mentioning gender identity and sexual orientation, as part of this anti-lynching bill.”

    The activist claimed the law was part of a slippery slope that could lead to further LGBT anti-discrimination laws, which have long been blocked by the GOP in Congress.

    He claimed: “They’ve been unsuccessful over the many years in the past… but this is a way to slip it in under a so-called anti-lynching bill, and to then to sort of circle the wagon and then go for the juggler [sic] at some time in the future.”


    Liberty Counsel is listed anti-LGBT hate group


    Staver’s Liberty Counsel is best known for representing embattled Kentucky clerk Kim Davis when she refused to issue marriage licences to same-sex couples after a US Supreme Court decision to legalise gay marriage.

    Evangelical law firm
    Liberty Counsel has a history of spreading anti-LGBT propaganda and is classified as a hate group by extremism watchdog the Southern Poverty Law Center due to its aggressive messaging and tactics.


    Staver previously made a false claim that first responders at the 2016 Pulse gay club attack had to “get tested for AIDS-related conditions” because of the blood of gay victims.
    Liberty Counsel has previously admitted helping state Republican lawmakers to draft anti-LGBT legislation, as well as attempting to push anti-LGBT laws around the world.

    I doubt anyone would care if they strung those petty little wankers up from a tree.

    “They’ve been unsuccessful over the many years in the past… but this is a way to slip it in under a so-called anti-lynching bill, and to then to sort of circle the wagon and then go for the juggler [sic] at some time in the future.”
    Why do they think the LGBT community have it in for jugglers?

    Essentially, Liberty Counsel want lynchings of gay people to be not as heinous a crime as lynching a KKK member (for example).
    Is this the 21st century? Is this in the USA?
    Speechless.

    I wonder if the juggler was gay, would it make a difference compared to Ronald MacDonald, say?

    2019 and you actually need an anti lynching bill? Just more evidence that America is a rather backward country. Is having a good lynching on a Sunday afternoon still a popular pastime then?

    Troll? You don't think the leader of the free world needing an anti lynching bill in 2019 shows America to be a backward country? Maybe you enjoy a good lynching.

    Queers are apparently upset that there isn't an anti lynching law specifically for them. So maybe rednecks still lynch the odd queer or 2 who knows.

    I have contacted my sister epscopalian church in Alabama and am pleased to tell you that the congregation will discontinue lynching both Gays and blacks over Lent as an act of Christian tolerance and charity. However the lynching of muslims, along with other heretics, non believers and persons of general Christian moral decay over this period will increase to take up the shortfall.
    Yours in faith, Christian love and charity.....
    Hugh.

    P.S.
    Normal lynchings will resume after Easter.

    Isn't this law a response to some LGBT guys who want to be hung like a black man ?

    FTFY. No, Lu is not American.

    But good one VN

    BTW, you don't get lesbian guys (re: the "L" in LGBT). Please use gender-neutral terms such as "people".
