Gay Rights = The Iceberg That Sunk the Titanic

It's been nearly one century since Lady Bellamy died in the sinking of the Titanic. Leave it to the Religious Right to seize on this history anniversary to attack GLBT people and gay rights in general. Right Wing Watch posted a clip from Truth In Action Ministries' film, "Truth that Transforms":
(Anti-gay activist Mathew) Staver warned that the “homosexual agenda is the moral iceberg that we need to steer clear of” and maintained that it is “the biggest threat I believe in our lifetime to religious freedom and the fundamental values we share here in America.” While (Harry) Jackson said the “homosexual agenda” is “one of those icebergs that if we don’t navigate around them correctly, will take us under,” (Michael) Brown claimed “we’ve already hit the iceberg and the ship is already going down” and (Richard) Land insisted that “we’re taking on water, the only question is whether or not we’re going to be able to survive and the ship won’t sink.” Staver predicted that opposition to gay rights is bound to be “criminalized and targeted for assault” and (Bill) Federer even asserted that “there are just a couple steps before the military could be used in a persecution of those that are viewed as enemies of the new state belief system.”
