Battle hate in the form of paid advertising lies
According to the HRC, the anti-LGBT American Family Association created a program about the "radical homosexual agenda," as a one-hour national special called "Speechless: Silencing Christians."

Apparently word got out that a Michigan television station was planning to air this program, people wrote in, and the station pulled the program from its schedule.

On this page, you can watch the video, and thank the TV station for not broadcasting it. The HRC has requested that people keep an eye out for other scheduled showings of the video - please email them if you see it airing in your community, and please consider writing to TV station management with your perspective.

Wow, I bet those folks are laughing all the way to the bank. They can't lose. Either they get to broadcast complete lies, and they win. Or they get to whine about how they've been silenced, which makes their crap seem legit, and they win. And a thank-you campaign like this only adds to the lustre of their win.

I think I'll just ignore it, if you don't mind.

I love how productions like this one, and like Stien's "Expelled" try to make the case that somehow the religious majority in this country is being treated like a minority, and being "Silenced".
