So they are pro-gay lynching?

The U.S. Senate last month unanimously passed a bill that would explicitly make lynching a federal crime. Not everyone, however, is pleased with passage of the Justice for Victims of Lynching Act.

Liberty Counsel, an evangelical nonprofit that opposes gay rights, and its chairman, Mat Staver, are taking issue with the bill’s inclusion of LGBTQ people.

“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,” Staver said in an interview with conservative Christian news outlet OneNewsNow. “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.”

Staver told OneNewsNow that his organization, which has been labeled an anti-LGBTQ “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is lobbying lawmakers in the House to have them remove the bill’s “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” language before taking a vote.

To be clear if these guys get their way it would be a federal crime to lynch anybody in this country unless they were a member of the LGBTQ community. 

Boy, those Christians are a loving bunch, aren’t they?

    Gryphen, just look at Trump’s Cabinet. Enough lying fake assed Christians to fill an ark. There is no chance they’ll go 25th Amendment on him. They have a golden goose with the one.

      Yeah, and we were “told” that gay marriage would be the end of society as we know it. I stand by my moniker.
