—Decried the Black Lives Matter movement for having an “anti-Christian,” pro-gay marriage “Marxist agenda.”

Says: “Today, we are confronted with a more rudimentary threat to the faith, a wholesale rejection of the God-ordained natural order. Our society is engaged in a great debate about whether the words “male” and “female” really mean anything at all, and if it is permissible for men, who are confused about their gender, to be allowed to shower with young girls.”

Says of equality: “Calling two homosexuals living together a ‘marriage’ is a joke that mocks what marriage actually is. ‘Gay Marriage’ is actually anti-marriage, reducing it to a farce.”

Falsely claims that civil marriage equality will force churches to perform weddings: “The Gay Marriage Equality bill will not be satisfied until virtually every church in Washington is forced to allow gays to hold their weddings in church sanctuaries under the threat of discrimination lawsuits.”


The GLAAD Accountability Project catalogs anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and discriminatory actions of politicians, commentators, organization heads, religious leaders, and legal figures, who have used their platforms, influence and power to spread misinformation and harm LGBTQ people.
