Politics: Have you smeared the queer today?

"We need to find ways to bring shame back to those who are practicing and advocating homosexual behavior" Peter LaBarbera, who heads the Illinois Family Institute, at the messianic "War on Christians" conference attended by Tom DeLay, Sen. John Cornyn and Republican Reps. Todd Akin and Louis Gohmert.
Salon has good coverage about the event and some discussion of how (by even having big name politicians hanging out with people who would previously be considered fringe group nut-jobs) America is shifting to religious zealotry. And the zealots are suiting up for battle.
