Through the tough times the country is facing right now, it is very uplifting to see something encouraging for a change.
On May 1, 2010 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC some of the top religionist right wing extremist groups attempted to unite their following under the causes of hatred for gays and Muslims, and we here at L3 are happy to report that this following is quite small.
From the podium to this microscopic group of cult followers there was loud wailing, whining, crying, theatrics and hysterics over gays, Muslims, public schools, the entertainment industry and lots and lots of “Jesus”.
Meanwhile, with the Lincoln Memorial in place as one of the bigger tourist hot spots, the loud obnoxious bellowing from six in the morning to 1 in the afternoon brought a reaction of repulsion from the majority of those trying to vacation.
One of the more disturbing elements of this event was the promotion of a racist hate flick called “Islam Rising”, a “Christian” produced film to demonize the Muslim community.
Homophobia was present in disturbing levels. Peter LaBarbera from his demented 501c3 gay hate group “Americans For Truth” had a presence to very little an audience with a table of ex-gay literature and advertisements for “programs” that promised to “cure gayness.”
Among the speakers during this hour was Americans for Truth’s Peter LaBarbera who, predictably, used his five minutes to attack gays, asking God to forgive us for our “excessive tolerance,” lamenting “the long secular road America has traveled from ‘abomination’ to ‘gay’,” and for allowing “homosexual activists […] to fufill their wicked plan of turning America’s schools, public and sometimes private, into homosexuality promotion zones

Extremist groups who have to use hate, fear and superstitious nonsense to unite their followers border on being cults.
These kind of groups prey on those in pain and with emotional instability to provide an illusion of being a safe catch net, while actually causing deeper harm to our society than any “good.”
