Christian Anti-Defamation Commission: “Bashing”

I’m so tired of hearing the religious right complain about hateful, intolerant gays. And now they’re trying to co-opt the word “bashing.” It’s their deliberate attempt to trivialize the challenges we face. But this time they’ve gone too far.

By the way, I misnamed the group in the video. It’s “Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, not “Christian Anti-Defamation League.” But they’re still “cattle” to me.

    That was beautifully done. Thank you.

    I saw it on Towleroad then followed the link at the end of the video.

    That was very well done. CADL’s usage of those words is calculated so that they lose their power. We can’t let it work. Thank you for putting this together.

    This is a great video. How can you even compare the so-called “Christian bashing” to what has been done to oppress gay rights? It’s outrageously tilted in favor of the Christian right. Thanks for pointing out the power of words.

    thankyou for putting this together.
    the fact that they claim the prerogative to define who is and isn’t christian and speak on behalf of all christians is problematic, but even if the supposed “christian bashing” was directed at all christians and not just the right wing the comparison would not stand. it is a ridiculous leap of logic for a dominant group, like christians, to try to paint a tiny erosion of their privilege as oppression or a little mocking or criticism as bashing.

    I received this in a posting from a friend. While I embrace traditional roles for males and females, I must say that as someone who wears a uniform and fights for the rights that we hold so dear, this was distressing to me. I am a Christian, one who follows the teachings of a man once named Jesus Christ. He taught us to love our neighbors and friends with no bounds or limits to what we think or feel. I hope that one day, people will wake up and realize that the freedom to speak your mind comes with a great responsibility so that you speak your mind in a way so as not to sound ignorant or intolerant. Keep speaking your mind, you are an intelligent individual. Just my thoughts.

    That was an excellent video; good production values. I’m glad that you’re out there fighting. I’d volunteered for No on 8 and I’ve been angry ever since at how Equality California et al screwed the pooch with the ridiculous disorganization and foolish phone scripts and pathetic ads… But just now I spent an hour or so poking around looking for the alternative groups that sprang up after. I think is what I was thinking of. Looks like there’s candlelight vigils planned for the evening of Wednesday March 5th,… In case you wanted to connect with others face to face? Either way, what you’re doing right here right now is splendid, thanks.
