The Truth Is Such a Threat to Bill Muehlenberg

Bill's whole worldview depends on twisting the truth to make it conform to his dogma, and his dogma insists that gay people are a nuisance who shouldn't exist. They're not part of his invisible friend's "plans" for humanity, apparently.

In a recent article entitled  Hijacking Good Causes To Promote Radical Agendas Bill shows up his ugly paranoid mind for what it really is. He seriously argues that the moves to prevent anti-gay bullying is motivated entirely by demonic forces wanting to push the "homosexual agenda". What is the "homosexual agenda" Bill? As far as I can tell it's the not unreasonable request to equal rights and the right to a life free from harrassment and bullying. But no, Bill suggests that young vulnerable gay people should be left to the mercy of the bullies, because to confront homophobic bullying is to give off the entirely unacceptable view that it's "OK to be gay", and we wouldn't want young people thinking that, now would we? Far better for them to be driven to suicide.

That's why Bill has to hide behind lies, propaganda and distortion to prop up his silly ideology. Inject a bit of truth and the whole stinking edifice falls down.

Here's a comment I posted on Bill's Culturewatch site about the lunatic "ex-gay" "therapy" that Bill and his cronies are such fans of:

All the points are simple ripostes to Bill's earlier assertions.

Unsurprisingly, the comment, under a pseudonym, wasn't posted. It contains far too much truth, and Bill wouldn't want his readers exposed to anything that counters his lies and propaganda. He's no interest in debating the facts or inconvenient truths. He's only interested in pushing his lies.

For an excellent summation of the whole sorry money-making institution of "ex-gay" "therapy" see the film This Is What Love In Action Looks Like.

The director asked the religious right who still propagate this nonsense to put forward their views on film, with the legally-binding promise that they could veto their parts in the film if they weren't happy.

All of them refused.

It's very difficult to hide behind lies and fraud when honest people call you up on it.

Is it just me or are fewer and fewer comments appearing on Bill's blog? Maybe he invents these people himself just to look more popular? I like to think blogs like this contribute to people seeing through the religious right and the appalling charlatans like Bill Muehlenberg, and see them for the self-interested bullies they really are.

The censorship and dishonesty is because they know the truth isn't on their side, and they are shit-scared people are beginning to see through them.

Reasons to celebrate: not many people give a damn about Bill Muehlenberg's lies. The day he stops hurting people, I'll stop keeping this blog and exposing him.

Bill Muehlenberg: "Nice Guy", apparently (according to Bill...)

Sorry for not updating this blog for a while. It's not for a moment to suggest that Muehlenberg has ceased his relentless quest to be the world's biggest tit; it's more that I haven't had time as I've been working flat out on a performance piece about religious fundamentalism. Bill's Culturewatch is such a mine of pure gold research.
 
 I couldn't let this one pass without comment though, in a recent article "Witnessing Social Suicide" (lovely polite title, Bill). Bill spent a day trying to persuade Australian government officials that if gays are allowed to marry THE WORLD WILL LITERALLY END IN A BIG EXPLOSION IT'LL BE COMPLETE CHAOS AND THE TRAINS WILL STOP RUNNING AND WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN. Bill is rightly acknowledged as a world leader in homophobia and loony religious fundamentalism, but he wasn't the only one speaking out against the PINK MENACE LURKING UNDER THE BED.

There were other representatives defending a retention of the current definition of marriage and denying the same to gay people. Bill is all bemused by the different ways in which they were treated:

 "When another group of pro-marriage speakers appeared after us, they received nothing of the hostility that we did. Why is it that I seem to bring out the hostility and heat in so many? I always thought I was a pretty nice guy!"

Bill is at a loss to explain how anyone could find him arrogant, argumentative, bullying, unreasonable, unpleasant and deeply offensive. He ACTUALLY THINKS he's a nice guy! This is a man who runs a website dedicated to spewing bile and hate against anyone who disagrees with him, but most especially gay people, and his every waking moment doing his utmost to make life as difficult as possible for them because his aim is to make sure non-fundamentalist Christians have no say in society, or better still cease to exist. 1% of his time is possibly spent disseminating the word of the Judean prophet he claims to follow. The rest is hate, hate, hate.

Pop over to his website and politely, restrainedly disagree with him on a minor point. Stand back and watch for the hostile and aggressive reaction.

Yet he actually claims to think he's a nice guy! Bill is deluded about a lot of things: that his religion is true, that sexuality is a choice, that the world and universe are only a few thousand years old, that evolution is a conspiracy theory dreamt up by liberals, that creationism is sound science, that you can't be good without believing in fairytales (only his fairytales, naturally), that all left-wing people are evil, that reparative therapy is harmless and effective: but possibly his most bewildering and staggeringly huge delusion is that he is a "nice guy".

Please, do tell Bill, exactly who has ever told you that you are "nice"? No, not including your invisible friend...
