white-house-rainbow

Linda Harvey, the president of Christian right group Mission: America, is at it again with her absurd statements. This time she’s actually claimed that the rainbow has been “raped” by homosexuals and Christians should therefore trademark it. There’s no misinterpreting her: she wrote this herself in an article for World Net Daily. Harvey seems to hate the fact that the rainbow is an adopted and widely recognized symbol of the LGBT community. Pride Month has clearly upset Harvey, as has “McDonald’s...

TrumpTweet

President-elect Donald Trump appears to have blocked an LGBT campaigner and activist on Twitter – and there could be many more.

gay pride flag

A former Donald Trump supporter is not happy with the nominee for waving a rainbow flag. The Republican Presidential nominee briefly waved an upside-down ‘LGBT for Trump’ Pride flag at a rally today in Colorado. Though Trump did not speak about the flag-waving or affirm any support for LGBT rights, his comments have upset former Trump supporter and militant Christian activist Theodore Shoebat. Mr Shoebat fumed about Trump “bowing down to the sodomite agenda” in a clip snipped by RightWingWatch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WoxR6rp1c4 He fumed: “In...

But one columnist for Trump-backing website Shoebat has claimed that the storm was sent by God to disrupt this weekend’s Orlando Pride celebrations. Andrew Bieszad wrote: “Florida is a nice place, but it...
