Filthy homosexuals! Always preying on unsuspecting kids and trying to recruit them into the homosexual lifestyle! Gawd, I nearly puked when I read this story about a bunch of gays trying to lure children to their dirty little clubhouse with all its weirdo rituals.
Oh, my bad. Those were evangelicals. Not gays.
Before anyone accuses me of being a religion-hater, let me point out that I’m not making a comment on religion. I’m making a comment on projection, although, yeah, unfortunately for religious folks who don’t wantonly hate the LGBTQ community, most of the people who do, the people who go on about the “radical gay agenda” to recruit children, are religious folks, too.
Anyway, projection. As David Neiwert has said: “You can always get a good idea where the right is headed (if it’s not already there) by what it’s currently accusing the left of doing.” Hence, Newt Gingrich’s whining about “radical secularists” and the stiffling of religious beliefs, or the GOP’s incessant insinuations that the Democratic Party is full of perverts. Laughable.
