Minutemen United

Apparently, a group by this name has been crashing the services of moderate churches, to force them to take a more homophobic stance.

This is rude - and that's an understatement.

On Ellen Beth's blog, the discussion is on Ellen's Republican Congressman, Mark Kirk (IL-10), pretending to support gay rights through sponsorship of a hate crimes legislation, yet doing nothing about this kind of demagoguery, which isn't limited to Columbus, Ohio, but is also an issue at IL-10 and nationwide. Ellen charges that Kirk has been nothing more than a shill for the politics of Karl Rove, who turned homophobia into a potent weapon for the evangelical Republicans.
