The recent explosion of gay protests now includes more than anger over the passage of Prop. 8. Truth Wins Out (TWO) teamed up with the Gay Liberation Network to protest the induction of hate-monger James Dobson into the Radio Hall of Fame.
Dump Dobson/Prop 8 Protest In Chicago
TWO founder and longtime activist Wayne Besen had this to say about Dobson:
To LGBT people, Dobson is a dangerous demagogue who has repeatedly dehumanized our very existence. He has lied about our lives, distorted science to back his falsehoods and peddled destructive stereotypes. Dobson has lobbied to pass anti-gay laws, divided families in the name of family values and said that allowing gay people to marry will "end the earth."
More than 500 people attended the lively protest which colorfully drew the connection between the anti-gay hate speech regularly spouted by Dobson and the shameful passage of Prop. 8 in California.
