Here's our "From the George Bush version of reality" moment for today, folks. Over on the Indiana Family Institute's blog Public Policy Director Ryan McCann links to the podcast from my recent appearance on Abdul Hakim Shabazz's morning radio show. The segment focused on Westboro Baptist Church's recent appearance in Indy and the news story that three Hoosier counties were top in the nation for amount of divorced people. IFI's president, Curt Smith, was the other guest. Ryan writes:
In my humble opinion this wasn't much of a debate...Curt dominated.
I find it so annoying when liberals don't answer questions and instead give rambling responses that touch on every other subject but what the discussion was supposed to be about.
I'll let you guys decide who "dominated." All I'm going to say is this - I didn't have to spend most of my time defending Bilerico. No one thinks that Bilerico and a nationally recognized hate group have a lot of similarities. No one quotes my writing on Bilerico back to me to conclusively prove that what I'm spouting on air is pure bullshit backpedaling.
Indiana Family Institute had to issue a press release explaining to the media that while they don't like gays and lesbians either, and they don't like the play the Laramie Project too, and they also don't think that Matthew Shepard's murder was a hate crime, and they also think that gays and lesbians should become straight and find Jesus... Well, other than that they're not the same at all!
