Mike Huckabee And Other GOP A-Listers Appear In Hilariously Over-The-Top Anti-Gay Film (VIDEO)
“When evil is called good, darkness is ushered into the land. And with the darkness comes a threat to our freedoms,” the narrator grimly intones as bare branches tremble beneath a cold, spectral moon.
The source of this unspeakable evil? Gays, of course. Right Wing Watch reports Faith 2 Action’s Janet Porter has just released the preview for her anti-gay film, which she claims is a “documentary” and has turgidly titled: “Light Wins: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity.”
In the preview for this anti-gay film , the pastor, former Arkansas governor and ever-present GOP presidential wannabe Mike Huckabee declares — presumably in reference to all those anti-gay marriage “Christian” wedding cake bakers out there:
“What kind of freedom of speech do we have, if a person who expresses a biblical viewpoint about marriage is told they can’t open their business in a location?”
It doesn’t matter than no one ever told any anti-gay business owners they can’t open their business somewhere, because it feels like the truth. Meanwhile, Huckabee’s fellow “Christian” pastors decry gay rights and marriage equality as “the blatant hostility to the Christian faith,” and insist that it’s an assault on their religious freedom.
“The most insidious and aggressive assault to our religious freedom that we’ve ever seen. That is the cultural clash of our time.”
Meanwhile, another anti-gay pastor fumes:
“Homosexual activists get everything they want. Nothing less than criminalization of Christianity.”
Apparently, these so-called “Christians” define “religious freedom” as the right to act like a bunch of mean, bullying, anti-gay bigots. Because, for them, “rights” and “freedoms” are a zero-sum game in which you can only gain rights and freedoms by taking them away from others.
And just as you thought this anti-gay film couldn’t possibly get more melodramatic, here comes Porter stalking through the dark and scary woods of evil bearing a lantern-of-truth, because apparently, her Christian God thinks flashlights are too gay.
“I’m Janet Porter. I was in the dark about the radical agenda to silence the truth. But after years of research and observation, there is no longer any doubt. As I wrote in ‘the Criminalization of Christianity,’ if they can silence the truth, they will silence the gospel.”
Here’s the video.
Melodramatic anti-gay film claims we’re assaulting Christians’ freedom.
That’s right, Porter and the “Christian” pastors and GOP lawmakers who appear in her anti-gay film claim that we’re “criminalizing” the Christian religion and persecuting God-fearing Christians.
How? By refusing to honor “Christian” business owners their God-given right to discriminate against gays; by challenging the tax exempt status of so-called “Christian” Churches that practice hate speech and involve themselves in anti-gay politics; and by questioning “Christian” parents’ and communities’ so-called “right” to abuse and bully their LGBT children, often to the point of suicide.
Scheduled to premier at the National Religious Broadcaster’s Convention on Feb. 23-26 in Nashville, TN, the cast for this creepy, melodramatic, and hilariously over-the-top anti-gay video extravaganza reads like a gathering of evangelical and GOP A-listers, including:
Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Huckabee (pastor and past governor of Arkansas), David Barton (Wallbuilders), James Dobson (Focus on the Family founder), Phyllis Schlafly (founder of the Eagle forum), Scott Lively (scary pastor), and Brian Camenker (president of the anti-gay MassResistance).
And of course, there are plenty of B- and C-listers too. The preview shows these anti-gay luminaries and semi-luminaries attempting to scare the crap out of God-fearing Americans.
And who the heck IS Porter anyway? Right Wing Watch reports that Porter used to have a popular radio show on VCY America’s Christian Radio network until her Dominionist theology got too over-the-top (even for them), and they pulled her off the air back in 2010.
