LGBTQ issues – (emphasis added) – five items in total…

“Their still warm corpses being seized upon by a ravenous swarm of SJW politicos eager to erase fifty individual identities. Their identities have been subsumed into the LGBT whole, whether or not they were political activists. The mortal terror they faced at the moment of their death is now the property of LGBT community to be invoked at will by anyone with a political axe to grind. Their suffering represents the terror all LGBT people face every day of their lives. Apparently. No reasonable person can disagree. If you do, if your mind strays beyond the limited visible spectrum of acceptable LGBT thought; if you mourn these people as merely humans and not gay martyrs, you are a homophobe.” – Paula Wright, “The Quality of SJW Mercy” – Bombs & Bullets, June 13th, 2016.

“An Iowa church just wants to be free to preach the gospel, but the state’s so-called non-discrimination requirements could block the house of worship from doing just that… Lawyers for the church are asking a federal court to prevent Iowa from censoring what the religious group can say about homosexuality, same-sex ‘marriage,’ transgenderism and other related topics.” – Bob Unruh, “Holy war: Government tries to control church sermons” – WND, August 9th, 2016.

“Actor, activist and author George Takei has described the fight for gun control as “the next chapter of LGBT history.” Many LGBTQ groups cheered the Democratic-led Senate filibuster this past week in favor of gun reforms. This outcry makes sense. This hate-motivated killing in Orlando is but one example of the broad culture of violent intolerance that LGBTQ people face. Until now, the NRA – not just because of its sheer organizational strength and financial backing, but also because of its cultural ingenuity – has been able to define the terms of the gun debate and the terrain of the struggle. The LGBTQ movement might just be able to change that.” – Jennifer Carlson and David Pettinicchio, “The gay rights movement could take on the NRA – and actually win” – Washington Post, June 17th 2016.

“I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered. My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer.” – Maya Dillard Smith, the Interim Director of the ACLU’s Georgia chapter who quit over her position on transgender issues – quoted by Zack Ford in “An ACLU attorney’s ugly transformation into an anti-transgender pundit”, thinkprogress.org, June 6th, 2016.

“In a scenario that already is recurring, and likely will be repeated often in coming months – at least until the White House sees the last of Barack Obama – a school district has sued the federal government over his mandate that schools allow boys into girls’ lockers and showers, and girls into boys’… ‘All individuals, including students, have a constitutional right to bodily privacy protected by the Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution that forbids the government from placing them in situations where they will expose their unclothed or partially clothed bodies to people of the opposite sex,’ the lawsuit states.” – Bob Unruh, “Transgender fight erupts – school defends naked students” – WND, June 10th, 2016.
