A 'Supernatural Spell Being Cast in Public Schools'

Get a load of this crap. Dr. Michael Brown is promoting his new book, A Queer Thing Happened to America, and the banter between Brown and the host will make you lose your lunch. After all, since the host says right off the top that no secular or Christian publishing firms would touch the book, what can it say about the quality of the writing and ideas behind it? I mean, have you read any of those Left Behind books?

While the Bible specifically warns against witchcraft, ghosts and the like, host Sid Roth seems to have no problem basing a supposedly Christian show around the supernatural. It must be hard to live with only one half of a working brain.

Well that was fascinating to watch. Most of it was funny and an a little confused.

He should give those Winchester boys a call. Bring in Castiel, just to be on the safe side.

Dude, what is this-- the latest installment of "We Watch CBN So You Don't Have To?" It's two old, white, male, heterosexual evangelicals dissing homosexuality. Pretty much par for the course, isn't it?

I don't think Dr. Michael Brown can resist my homosexual agenda. Oh!

I'm noticing that all the complaints listed between 3:00 and 3:30 are about trans people, despite the guest claiming that they deal with homosexuals.

I think its interesting to see how trans issues are used against gay people. It shows how we're all in this together. I think it also shows how LGB people need to be more educated on trans issues in general;
The challenge, of course, is how to do this.

What really gets me is how he starts to tell the truth about something, and then twists it. For example, talking about Stonewall, he rightly notes that they were fed up with being arrested and attacked, and fought back when the police raided the bar. But a minute later, he's saying they were "rioters, attacking the police", as if the police had done nothing to provoke the attack.

There are several points where the author does this, talks about something, gets part of the facts right, and then draws this wild conclusion that's contrary to the fact he just stated. And then to say gay people can't be Christian? Just flat out can't? Despite admitting there are lots of churches that are accepting and affirming? Not that it's in debate, but flat out, they're right, the rest of the world is wrong?

Really sad... and a little infuriating. But mainly, sad.

1. You can't reach out to us 'with love' by referring to our 'agenda.'

2. You make no points by calling us Queers.

3. Laying random (and most likely fake) anecdotes at our doorstep is bullshit.
