“Ex-Gay” Grindr Cruiser Matt Moore:
Trans Kids Are Possessed By Demons

“I get angry because of stories about kids like [six year-old transgender boy] Ryland. Angry at people. Angry as sin. Angry at Satan.

Rod Dreher: GSLEN Are The Bullies

“If enough people start resisting these fascist tactics to compel consent and demonize dissent, if enough people say I’m not afraid, and I’m not unquestioningly obedient, this will stop.

Linda Harvey: GLSEN’s Anti-Bullying Day Of Silence Propaganda Dishonors God
