Militant Christian Watch: Repent Amarillo

Posted in Activism, News, Religion, Stuff to do, Videos, You Fucked Up! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2010 by Chase

First they came for the swingers…

This was not activism or “witnessing” as members of Repent Amarillo like to call it. This was a campaign of harrasment and intimidation against members of the Route 66 club that went on for over a year, until the club was shut down. They even showed up at house parties held on private property. And I thought Texans valued our property rights…

(from the Dallas Observer) “At first, the swinger community was mystified by the attention. On the 60-some hours of surveillance footage the Meads have, a swinger can be heard telling a Repent member that the swingers haven’t done anything to bother them.“You’re going to hell, and it bothers me,” Grisham responds. “What bothers me is you’re going to hell.”

“Perhaps the most insidious tactic Repent uses is trying to destroy the reputation of the swingers. In Amarillo, people can be ostracized over a whiff of impropriety. On one tape, Grisham directs followers to get the license-plate numbers in the Route 66 parking lot. “A new couple can be here three or four hours,” says Mac. “Whenever they leave, the Repent Amarillo group will call them by first and last name, know where they live, know where they work, just within a very few hours.” Read more

The group’s website displays a list of who they plan to target next. They’ve already started to go after a wildlife center (for allegedly hosting pagan “earth circles”), and a coffee shop (for being a queer/pagan hangout). They’ve also shut down the opening night production of a play that included gay subject matter. But guess what’s number one on their posted to do list? Gay pride events. No suprise there.

Exactly what is “Aggravated Homosexuality”?

Posted in Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Politics and Sex, Religion, Videos with tags , , , , , , on February 17, 2010 by Chase

It’s not just a pissed off queer. Atleast, not in Uganda:

I ❤ Rob. Read his blog.

Protect the Children (from disingenuous homophobes)

Another well reasoned argument from Rob Tisinai, who blogs at wakingupnow.com.

Check out our previous post featuring another one of his videos, or one of my personal faves:

Gay Marriage = Religious Freedom

If you watch “Protect the Children” far enough you’ll notice Rob quotes Peter LaBarbera, President of the anti-gay group Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality. But we know him better by his nickname, “Porno Pete”, which was bestowed upon him due to his favorite hobby: going to Leather events like IML or the Folsom Street Fair, in order to scowl and point and take lots and lots of pictures of every ass crack he sees. Check ’em out, you might see someone you recognize! (I did)

You see, it’s Pete’s personal mission to provide the internet with continual coverage of just how nasty and filthy those damn queers are. As if the internet had no idea…

Uganda Update

Posted in Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Religion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2009 by Chase

The death penalty and life imprisonment privisions have been dropped from Uganda’s upcoming anti-gay legislation.

Still included in the bill are jail sentences for being openly gay (gay sex is already criminalized), peacefully speaking, assembling, or advocating on behalf of homosexuals, and failing to notify the government of a friend/coworker/family member who is homosexual.

Rachel Maddow continues to cover the links between Christian fundamentalists in America and this disturbing legislation.

Additionally, Pastor Rick Warren has finally joined the public opposition for this bill.
