Tulsi Gabbard once touted working for anti-gay group that backed conversion therapy

During her run for state legislature in 2002, Gabbard told the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, „Working with my father, Mike Gabbard, and others to pass a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage, I learned that real leaders are willing to make personal sacrifices for the common good. I will bring that attitude of public service to the legislature.“ The quote, which CNN’s KFile found during a review of Gabbard’s early career, shows how closely she aligned herself with her father’s mission at the time.

Amtsantritt Bolsonaros: Brasiliens evangelikaler Kulturschock

Der von Jair Bolsonaro angekündigte „große Kulturwandel“ wirkt bereits – in Form von Angst, Aufrufen zum öffentlichen Denunziantentum und hemmungsloser Verbreitung von Fake-News über politisch Andersdenkende. Brasilien, das einst als gelassen und tolerant galt, erlebt jetzt eine Welle von Hass und Aggressivität.

LGBT Alarm as President Trump Signs ‘Religious Liberty’ Executive Order

(3.5.2018) The order—first reported Wednesday night by Religion News Service—will “help ensure that faith-based organizations have equal access to government funding and equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs,” Trump said.

But if those last three words—“deeply held beliefs”—sound familiar, it’s because they are often used to justify anti-LGBT legislation in the name of “religious freedom.” Indeed, LGBT advocates say that the executive order is yet another federal action that could potentially encourage discrimination against LGBT people in the name of religion.
