>> the fear of scientific innovation
Liberals have never been fearful of scientific innovations.
The only thing that she could possibly mean is that they are
fearful of "curing the gay". Of course, the whole idea is BS
to start with, nothing but a bunch of homophobic,
closet cases who suppress their inner self. There are no
ex-gays, just bisexuals who were duped by Christian fanatics.
>> right-wing hate groups
The "family" groups that she is possibly referring to spread
lie after lie, most of them very damning, about the gay
community. One classic is "Did you know that the majority
of homosexuals are pedophiles?". Where that comes from was
a study of convicted pedophiles. Of those studied, the majority
of them only had relations with someone of the same sex.
This same lie may one day lead to the leaders of Uganda to be
charged with crimes against humanity, as well as Scott Lively
being charged as an accessory.
>> .....heirs to the American Revolution, have regularly stood for >> peaceable order.
She makes it sound like the leaders of the American Revolution were non-violent, like Gandhi, but they weren't. They spilled
plenty of blood.
