In a macabre hit piece, the Washington Post has launched a smear campaign against important Christian leaders who espouse Biblical morality on homosexuality, labeling them as “enemies of equality.”
Employing hyperbolic, McCarthy-esque rhetoric, Post writer Jonathan Capehart actually states that there is a “vast right-wing conspiracy” out to deny gays in America their “humanity and dignity.” Capehart goes on to say that there is a “conservative cabal actively working the levers of power to block their rights.”
Mining material from the LGBT lobby group “Freedom for All Americans” (FFAA), Capehart says there has been a coordinated attack on LGBT persons under the guise of defense of religious liberty in America, such as “Indiana’s so-called religious freedom law.”
The FFAA created a chart, conveniently reprinted by the Post, blacklisting the Christian leaders most active in opposing same-sex marriage and affirming the rights of Americans to conscientious objection when asked to do something they consider morally wrong.
The essay attacks Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) as “one of the hubs of this coordination,” as well as the National Christian Foundation (NCF), the Family Research Council (FRC) and Liberty Council, accusing them of “aggressively working to chip away at the equal rights of LGBT Americans.”
The piece also stoops to an ad hominem attack on Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue a marriage license to a same-sex couple last year, citing her religious beliefs that compelled her not to cooperate in sanctioning such a relationship.
