Don't Fall For The Christians Vs. Gays Frame
It's exactly what Thomas Frank is talking about.

And it works for the Republicans because the MSM has adopted it.

Tweety uses it on almost every show.

Don't let them get away with it.

There are gay Christians.

There are liberal Christians.

Sure lots of rightwing, fundamentalist Christian sects are anti-progressive and anti-gay.

But, not all Christians are rightwing bigots. And we have to call the media out on this framing every time they use it.

1. Wow me and you agreeing
Lots of us just really don't care what you do in your private life just like I'm sure you could care less about me. Why should I be more important to my government because I'm white, straight and of the current popular religion? Just like they do with Muslims.

2. The way I look at it is that there are two directions christians take
An eye for An eye direction (fundamentalists) Approx 60%

or

Turn thy other cheel direction (The left arm of god christians)Approx 40%

The only true problem here is that the left wing christians don't call their right wing brethren on their bull shit. You shouldn't question ones faith they reason.

I reason, you must
