Far-right GOP Group Sets Hate Tour Dates Across Texasby
Houston-based Conservative Republicans of Texas, run by the rabidly anti-gay Steven Hotze, announced today a list of events stretching from August into the fall that will target “adversaries” who support LGBT equality and abortion rights:
“Christian, it’s time for us to stand up and fight to take back our government from the godless Secular Humanists, Pro-Abortionists and Political Homosexual Movement. We will trust God! We will take action! We will fight to restore our Constitutional liberties based upon Biblical truth!”
The email includes a Bible verse warning that God “will tread down our adversaries.”
The events are set for eight cities from August 13 to October 1: Houston, Fort Worth, Dallas, San Antonio, Tyler, Lubbock, Corpus Christi and Waco. The list of sponsors is a virtual “who’s who” of religious-right groups, including the equally venomous Texas Values and Texas Pastor Council as well as phony historian David Barton of WallBuilders and disgraced former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
Hotze declares in his incendiary email today:
“Christians must rise up, organize, oppose and defeat those individuals and groups who are committed to bringing sexual and moral anarchy to our society. …
We have a duty to protect our children and our grandchildren from the evil tide of the homosexual political movement, the pro-abortion movement and from the godless, that is sweeping America.”
Hate is on the march.
