Said that the Equality Act will require public schools to teach this “sexual nihilism as truth, and teaching the traditional values that have held the American family together will become an actionable offense. We’re talking about civil tyranny, not civil rights.”

Compared “Gay Pride Month,” which she calls “a time for LGBTQ storm troopers to pursue political enemies,” to the Kristallnacht pogrom against Jewish-owned business in Nazi Germany.

Claimed that the “B” in “LGBTQ” refers to bestiality.

Said Pride flag and Confederate flag are the “exact same thing”: “The same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up,” she said. “These two flags represent the exact same thing: that certain people groups are not welcome here.”

Claimed “transgender rights are not civil rights.” 

—In column denouncing inclusive military service, pitted homosexuality against free society: “As a Christian, I believe in the truth of traditional morality as transmitted to us through our biblical sources. And I believe, along with George Washington, who stated clearly in his farewell address to the nation, that religion and traditional morality are critical to the maintenance of our free society. Homosexual behavior is unacceptable by these moral standards.”

—Said gay people should “keep it private.”

—Claimed LGBTQ acceptance = “unraveling of our society”: “For this traditionalist, it’s no accident that building public acceptance of homosexuality is coincident with a general moral unraveling of our society, with all its destructive consequences.”

—Claimed same-sex marriage is one sign that “we are sick as a country;” says God will judge us for it.

—In column claiming same-sex marriage is a “a sign of a lost society,” compared the “core truths” against slavery to the “core truths” against same-sex marriage: “In the 1850s, Stephen Douglas [sic] proposed solving the dilemma of whether slavery should be permitted in new states by suggesting that they should just vote. What could be more American than submitting the question of slavery to the democratic process of each state? To this Abraham Lincoln observed: ‘God did not place good and evil before man telling him to make his choice. On the contrary, he did tell him there was one tree, of the fruit of which he should not eat, upon pain of certain death…. I should scarcely wish so strong a prohibition against slavery in Nebraska.’ Lincoln’s rejoinder to the idea of ‘popular sovereignty’—that states should vote to determine if slavery would be legal—was that there are core truths—truths that define right and wrong, good and evil—that precede the democratic process. To reject this premise is to buy into moral chaos. Which is what we are approaching today. The claim that somehow it is a sign of a healthy, free society that by way of the vote we can rewrite our language, our dictionary, our oldest, time-tested traditions is a sign of how lost we are.”

—Claimed Washington D.C.’s marriage equality represents “Sodom in the nation’s capital”; says that offering marriage equality to help gays is like “serving up another glass of wine ... to help a drunk.”

—In column claiming marriage equality is pride that will come “before a fall,” wrote that same-sex marriage is a “war on religion”: “Let there be no doubt that same-sex marriage is about much more than marriage. It is a deliberate and conscious assault on religion and all traditional values.”

—Claimed black lesbians are created by fatherlessness: “Growth in black lesbianism is generally the product of a culture where families already have been destroyed. These aren’t pioneers venturing out of an intact family that has given them a good life to discover a new ‘lifestyle.’ The injustice and discrimination they feel is to never have had the opportunity to grow up in an intact family and to understand what it means to have a man in your life who is responsible and from whom you can receive love and respect.”

—Referred to gay people as “those choosing the homosexual lifestyle.
