Interesting Quote: Scott Lively

The term “anti-gay” effectively mistranslates the pro-family motto “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin,” into “Hate the Sinner because of the Sin.” As such it is not an honest descriptor but a slur, and its use by the media is an act of complicity in a dishonest and manipulative LGBT political tactic. Much of what the public falsely believes they know about my views and actions in the culture war is the fruit of this tactic and similar manipulative spin by pro-”gay” journalists throughout the industry.

I am asking The Republican to stop using the term “anti-gay” in news stories entirely, but especially in stories about me. “Pro-family” would be best, but if you insist on framing my position in the negative, use “Anti-homosexuality.” Both of those are factual and accurate, in contrast to the slur, “anti-gay.” You clearly don’t agree with me that people can and should “love the sinner, hate the sin” but you have no right to inject your opinion into the news as if it were fact.
