The Truth About Christian Values and their Network

HATE Is Not A Family Value

When I decided I wanted to blog, I was going to call this blog “Hate is not a family value.”  The origins of the slogan goes back to the days of Jerry Falwell, the Traditional Values Coalition, and the election of Ronald Reagan as our President.

A lot of my focus is on politics, and the people and organizations selling hate to the American public. Our culture has become so immune to hate, and hate speech. Ironically the biggest perpetrators of hate are extremist religious organizations, right wing political commentators, politicians, and the Catholic Church. It makes me wonder how often the individuals who wallow in this unpopular ideological  wasteland look in the mirror at themselves.

I think this is particularly prescient, because Delta Airlines is a part of CGBG, or the Christian Values Network again. In the little noticed press release that CGBG issued last week, Christian Values Network or CGBG listed “5 mistruths by the Activists.”  Let’s look at Number 4.

#4: The name of the business retailers are working with is "Christian Values Network." Truth: The Christian Values Network was renamed CGBG in March 2011 to reflect a broadening of the group's mission and partner network, which includes more than 170,000 charities representing a range of religious, non-religious, educational and other groups. CGBG is not a religious organization and does not have any religious content on its site. In fact, CGBG has received outstanding performance ratings from consolidators who represent these retailers.

The Truth about Christian Values Network

If anyone pays attention to the Christian Values Network, or CGBG, and their bullshit (it is bullshit), and did a proper investigation, what you would find is that CGBG, CVN, TFFVN, FFVN, TJGN,  are all Limited Liability Corporations set up by the Faith And Family Values Network, Inc., located in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

The Faith and Family Values Network, Inc. can claim that the Christian Values Network changed it’s name to CGBG in March 2011, when in reality CGBG was registered as an LLC with the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office in 2008. The Faith and Family Values Network is basically playing a shell game. If the Christian Values Network takes a hit, and stores leave, they will claim that they changed their name, and that people like me are mistaken, and that they are not a religious organization, and that bloggers like me better stop or they will sue me for not being factual.
FACT: The Faith and Family Values Network, Inc. is the umbrellla that CVN, CBGB, TJGN, FFVN, and many others, all live under. You can be a grifter,  change your spots, and you can change the moniker, but it is all one and the same.
One retail organization that I spoke with said the biggest problem they had with CVN was how deceptive their marketing appears to be.


What’s my beef with The Family Values Network, Christian Values Network, CGBG, et al.? By supporting groups like Promise Keepers, The Family Research Council, Summit Ministries, Liberty Counsel, and groups of that ilk, they are supporting and promoting anti-gay organizations.

Thank You Kevin McCullough!


In the Denver Post newspaper article that appeared last week, Kevin McCullough made a number of comments and was credited as the CVN/CBGB spokesman. His involvement with CVN/CBGB is a blessing in disguise. I have to extend my thanks and appreciation to Mr. McCullough, because the lengthy record he has for spreading lies, misinformation, and hate related to the LGBT community, women, President Obama, Halloween, and the video game industry (just to name a few), has helped this boycott and call to action more than anything Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council, or Focus on the Family has uttered in the past.

As the poster boy for hate, McCullough provides more documented vitriolic material than any other single commentator. Thanks Kevin! Please please please keep it going! Mr. McCullough claims he is a best-selling author. I have reviewed years of sales figures and best seller lists, and have yet to find Mr. McCullough on one list. His latest literary masterpiece currently ranks #385,982 on amazon, and #114,503 on Barnes & Noble. Check out some of his material!

In "Stop Being Panzies" (he hasn’t figured out how to use spell check yet) he wrote:

“We are going into a season of all out war with a leftist enemy who will do all they can to ridicule sound ideas, genuinely helpful policies, and principles that have stood the test of time. We have no room to be bullied, victimized, and isolated because we want people to go easy on us. When the Piers Morgans of the world fire warning shots, bazooka a hole in the hull of their craft. And when unabashed evil seeks to lie to advance its point, insist upon accountability."
In a column entitled “Obama: America’s first Gay President?” McCullough wrote:

“Obama has blindsided black clergy across America with the con-game that they should not worry about his views on homosexuality.
In pledging to overturn DOMA Obama seeks to remove state’s rights, violate the principles of federalism, violate a major tenant of all traditional religious systems observed in America, and subject children to a quite non-healthy home-life. Studies of which have confirmed would have a detrimental effect on said children’s scholastic, emotional, intellectual and physical health.

In doing so Obama displays a reckless commitment to play games with the future sexual formation of families and puts himself so firmly planted in the camp of anti-biblical views of truth, sex, and family that we have never seen its comparison in all years previous.
In a column about the video game Mass Effect, he fanned the flames of controversy about a game in which he had never played. He was exposed by countless blogs, after the Republican mouthpiece Fox News  picked up his story and ran with it. He wrote:
“It's called "Mass Effect" and it allows its players - universally male no doubt - to engage in the most realistic sex acts ever conceived. One can custom design the shape, form, bodies, race, hair style, breast size of the images they wish to "engage" and then watch in crystal clear, LCD, 54 inch screen, HD clarity as the video game "persons" hump in every form, format, multiple, gender-oriented possibility they can think of.
The objections to such filth should be simple to understand.”

“Starting with the disgusting idea that one can "create" their own versions of what people look like, removing warts, moles, and bald spots while enhancing - shall we say - the extended features of the game's characters tends to objectify women, sex, and human relationships. Right? We can all agree on this?”

“And because of the digital chip age in which we live - "Mass Effect" can be customized to sodomize whatever, whoever, however, the game player wishes.”

“With it's "over the net" capabilities virtual orgasmic rape is just the push of a button away”.

What Kevin McCullough wrote were exposed as all lies!

McCullough’s piece on Halloween made some of the retailer’s I spoke to particularly angry, as they profit from selling Halloween costumes. His piece entitled “Halloween Trend: Trading Fairy Wands for Fishnets” said:

Because adults refuse to grow up - our children are becoming streetwalkers - at least for Halloween.

Sorry but I don't get it. Why does it necessarily follow that adults wishing to enjoy Halloween means little girls sent out to trick or treat dressed like streetwalkers?

Seriously, just because I choose to go to the local pub's Halloween party dressed like Capt. Jack Sparrow, or Capt. Jack Harkness for that matter, am I then required to dress my 12 or 13 year-old daughter like a crack-whore?”
His views on “homosexual activists” like myself are welll documented. Choice tidbits like this:
Radical Homosexual activists have attempted to slander my voice for speaking so openly about the comparisons of homosexual behavior to other sexual deviancy such as adultery, the use of pornography, incest, and pedophilia. All are sexual actions, all are chosen to be engaged in by the adult parties involved.”

Kevin McCullough, Corporate Pariah


Kevin McCullough, the Christian Values Network, CGBG, TJGN, Faith and Family Values Network spokesman has written this sterling prose. He believes what he writes, and this is what I cite when contacting companies associated with this organization.

Whatever companies fall under the Faith and Family Values Network, Inc. umbrella, you can call your Network whatever you’d like - but the message remains the same.

This week I will examine the other pieces to the puzzle that The Faith and Family Values Network, Inc. doesn’t want you to know about, as this is just the tip of the iceberg. Tomorrow we will look at Stephen Baldwin, and his involvement in this group.

What does Georgette Klinger, and a failed brokerage firm tied to a ponzi scheme have to do with all of this? Stay tuned and you will find out!

Proposal for Trosper and Higgins


I also want to make a proposal to Mr. Trosper and Mr. Higgins - who are the individuals who head up this Faith and Family Values Inc. Corporate entity. While Trosper was quoted extensively in the press release issued last week, these two men have been largely silent.

If you were to shed yourselves of McCullough and Baldwin and Governor Huckabee, and stopped financially supporting political groups like the Family Research Council, and Focus on the Family, and added HIV related charities, plus Soulforce, Faith in America, It Gets Better and the Like Me organizations to your mix of charities, you would get more support and reach a wider audience than you ever dreamed of.

You are business men who worked for Barry Diller. Ahem! You were happy to take the LGBT dollar when you worked at HSN. I personally know of many LGBT employees who made valuable and important contributions to Victoria’s Secret when you were executives at the venerable retailer. Do you want to embrace a business model that works? Or do you want to continue to support extremists promoting hate. The choice is yours. I’d be happy to have a reasonable discussion with you. 


Feel free to get in touch with me, as long as the message is devoid of death threats, prank calls, and lies. The choice is yours gentlemen.
