One guy walked into a religious right organization with a gun, shot one man in an arm, and now America is no longer safe for bigoted right wingers.
The shooting was inexcusable, but give me a break.
The latest effort to take political advantage of the shooting came today when a number of officially designated hate groups – including one that claims gays were the real people behind the Holocaust – called on Fox News to stop having gay rights advocate Wayne Besen on their show because Wayne is mean to people who call him a pedophile.
Last time I checked, Wayne never accused any of these groups of being behind the Holocaust, or being pedophiles.
What’s particularly interesting are two things:
1. The groups use the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, who defended FRC’s hate and now is apparently a darling of religious right anti-gay activism.
2. No national religious right groups signed the letter. One of the local groups that signed even had two different employees sign, upping the numbers of signatories.
