Meet the Hate Group Behind Gay Cake Case

Founded by some 30 leaders of the Christian Right, the Alliance Defending Freedom is a legal advocacy and training group that has supported the recriminalization of homosexuality in the U.S. and criminalization abroad; has defended state-sanctioned sterilization of trans people abroad; has linked homosexuality to pedophilia and claims that a "homosexual agenda" will destroy Christianity and society. ADF also works to develop "religious liberty" legislation and case law that will allow the denial of goods and services to LGBT people on the basis of religion.


"The Alliance Defending Freedom, the far-right legal group that argued in the Supreme Court Tuesday for a Colorado baker who refused service to a gay couple, has a deceptive name. It's more like the Alliance Defending Oppression. The ADF has a long record of anti-LGBT activism, in addition to opposition to abortion rights and support for other religious right causes. The Advocate has covered the group's activities over the years, and it's also been the subject of recent reports from GLAAD, Media Matters for America, and The Nation. It has justifiably been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center." -- The Advocate


It's called the republican party.

Wake up, people! It's this same hate group that is helping Trump appoint hundreds of judges around the country, who will serve for decades. You wonder why Trump's hardcore base sticks with him? This is why.

"Wake up, people!"

Shhhhh! Keep it down. I am trying to sleep here! 🛏 💤 I was hoping to hibernate until Mueller ends this living nightmare. I can't stand watching the Trumpets tear our country apart.

These are the same people whose followers cheered last night because Trump is helping to usher in the end times:

Theological scholar explains horrifying reason Trump's supporters celebrated Armageddon in Pensacola

In a Pensacola, Florida rally Friday evening, Republican state Senator Doug Broxson suggested to supporters of Donald Trump that the president's controversial decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may usher in the biblical end times.

"Now, I don't know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem -- where the King of Kings [applause] where our soon coming King is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel," Broxson predicted. The crowd cheered.

Sure it's BS but these folks believe it, and that's what makes them so dangerous and why the rest of us should be paying attention.

Seriously, are these the same people who incited purge of homosexuals in African nations such as Uganda and Namibia? Shouldn't they be on the terrorist watch list and restricted from airplanes?

#6 Yes.

Trump behind the scenes:

In September, he met with evangelical leaders to reassure them that he would still pursue their agenda despite a flirtation with Democrats.

"The Christians know all the things I'm doing for them, right?" he asked, according to three attendees, who reported praising his positions on issues like abortion and Planned Parenthood.

Seriously? Kansas has voted for a grand total of one non-Republican president in the last 75+ years.
