political spectrum, is doing just that.                                                                                             anti-gay document and have forced its removal from general communications

The group, which was once known for combating racial bigotry, is now
attacking several groups that uphold Judeo-Christian moral views, including                                                         This is intolerance pure and simple. Elements of the radical Left are trying
