PhoboQuotable – Andrea Lafferty

“Every state will be forced to make cross-dressers, drag queens, transsexuals, and she-males (male-female hybrids) into protected classes. Therefore, every school district in America will be forbidden by law to reassign any she-male teacher because this would be considered ‘discrimination.’ Thus, children will be trapped in classes taught by men who dress as women, and students will be indoctrinated to …

PhoboQuotable – Bryan Fischer

PhoboQuotable – Bryan Fischer

“Think for a moment of the current social controversies that could potentially be avoided if homosexual conduct was still against the law. Gays in the military: problem solved. We shouldn’t make a place for habitual felons in the armed forces. End of discussion, end of controversy. If someone objects, ask them which other felonies the military ought to overlook in …

Modern day …
