The headline in the August 2, 2018 Wall Street Journal  blared Apple’s Market Cap Hits $1 Trillion. Technology giant hits new milestone that underscores the iPhone maker’s explosive growth.”

The Gay LGBTQ rainbow flag is a beacon that flies high above Castro St. in San Francisco, California 

If all gay or LGBTQ people are sexually immoral and consigned to eternal hell, I’m confident I can make the case that hell is the best place to be.

By Roy Steele

WARNING! There are evil people disguised as benevolent and loving Christians working overtime to oppose LGBTQ rights.

I have to begin this news story with a WARNING. We all have to do better, myself included, and pay attention to the subversive right-wing extremists working to legalize discrimination and strip gay people of their dignity and basic human rights.

Anti-Gay Fox News ‘Ingraham Angle’ Has No Handle On Facts

Fox News entertainer Laura Ingraham on "The Ingraham Angle"

I caught Laura Ingraham in a BIG FAT LIE.

  • Invented a fake news story to attack a gay icon and legendary Hollywood superstar.
  • Used vicious innuendo to attack a gay-themed Oscar nominated film and gay men.
  • Falsely asserted that Americans have no interest in independent films.
  • Called Pixar director a phony for saying “marginalized people need to feel like they belong."

  • Donald Trump and Fox News are perfect together. They’re both fact-free zones.  While the current occupant of the White House loves to remind his audiences that he’s new to politics, he ironically claims to know more about politics than anyone else. He once famously remarked “Trust me, I’m, like, a smart person.” I neither trust him or think he's a smart person.
