Mitt Gets Worse Campaign of the Day

Today marks the launch of a new campaign -- "Mitt Gets Worse," a play on the "It Gets Better" project -- that accuses GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney of pushing an "extreme anti-LGBT agenda."

From the Boston Globe:

Launched Wednesday by the Courage Campaign Super PAC and American Bridge 21st Century, [the campaign] is a compilation of video testimonies from people who describe Romney as insensitive and willing to put his political ambitions ahead of equality. The campaign's website also features video of Romney discussing LGBT rights as far back as 1994, when he ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate. If elected president, the Super PACs suggest, Romney would roll back protections for LGBT citizens -- perhaps pushing for a federal ban on gay marriage, which he supports; defending the Defense of Marriage Act in court, which the Justice Department has ceased to do under Obama; and undermining the repeal of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day

Earlier this month, a North Carolina pastor suggested rounding up gays and lesbians and starving them to death.

Just yesterday, an audio file of a Kansas pastor saying the government should kill gays made the rounds.

Now, we are confronted with perhaps the most egregious homophobic offense in recent weeks -- a youngster at Apostolic Truth Tabernacle in Greensburg, Indiana, belted out "Ain't No Homos Gonna Make It To Heaven," and the congregation rewarded him with a standing ovation.

Say What Now of the Day

Pastor Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, North Carolina, went on an anti-President Obama rant earlier this month during a sermon. Then he got off topic:

I figured a way to get rid of all the lesbians and queers. Build a great, big, large fence -- 150- or 100-mile-long -- put all the lesbians in there... Do the same thing with the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can't get out... And you know what, in a few years, they'll die.

He ended his sermon with this thought:

God have mercy. It makes me pukin' sick to think about -- I don't even whether or not to say this in the pulpit — can you imagine kissing some man?

Notice the "Amens" from the congregation throughout.
