The Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) a “conservative” Christian (GOP) organization which states (and that doesn’t mean its true) that it represents, over 43,000 churches across the country, wasted no time attacking ENDA – The Employment Non-Discrimination Act  and directly after the U.S. Senate hearings yesterday sent out this lie and propaganda filled email to its supporters begging for money to once again fight ENDA using trans-panic to promote fear and raise funds.

Dear Traditional Values Supporter,

Meet Mary.

Mary is a little, shall we say, confused…

…but Mary isn’t confused about whether or not the Employee Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) is going to allow someone like him to keep teaching your kids while he undergoes his transformation from ugly caterpillar into a beautiful… something or other…

Believe it or not, Mary isn’t alone.

I just sat through a U.S. Senate hearing on ENDA that his friends were able to get, and I have got to put some media heat on these deeply troubled individuals before the Obama administration gives the homosexual/transgender lobby the single largest gift in the history of their movement!…..

LINK BEGGING FOR A DONATION REMOVED

Not only would ENDA threaten the religious liberties of anyone questioning whether teachers such as “Mary” were appropriate for a Kindergarten classroom, ENDA would force public schools and local governments to hire transgenders and she-males as a “protected class” — even to the point of forcing 34 state governments to legalize the “Dirty 30″ of bizarre sexual orientations as cited by the American Psychiatric Association.

ENDA is a very real threat to classrooms across the nation.  Traditional Values Coalition has been fighting this bill since it was first floated in 1994, and we have continued to fight it tooth and nail.

TVC killed ENDA two years ago. In fact, ENDA was scheduled to be voted on, but the liberals were too scared to vote on the bill when the truth was revealed ENDA would put transgenders in the classroom teaching our kids!…..

LINK BEGGING FOR A DONATION REMOVED

Can I count on your help to stop Mary?

Andrea Lafferty
President
Traditional Values Coalition

Other than the fact that this email penned by Andrea Lafferty is filled with lies.  There is no list  of the “Dirty 30″ of bizarre sexual orientations as cited by the American Psychiatric Association. And the picture of “Mary” is most probably a TVC staffer in a bad wig because lets face it none of the girls I know would ever be caught dead looking like that. The Traditional Values Coalition is also listed by The Southern Poverty Law Center has  as a hate group and has dubious, to say the least ties to Washington lobbyist and criminal activity.

So while they spew lies and propaganda about us.

Lets spread some TRUTH about the The Traditional Values Coalition.

The TVC was founded  by the Reverend Louis P. Sheldon who is the current chairman. His daughter Andrea Sheldon Lafferty is the executive director.  And besides spreading lies, propaganda, attacking individual members of the LGBT community, and being named a hate group the conservative “Lee Rodgers and Melanie Morgan Program“, has described the “Reverand” Sheldon’s modus operandi  to a “protection racket.

The TVC also operates a subsidiary under the name of “Christian Seniors Association”, under the leadership of James Lafferty, the husband of Andrea Sheldon Lafferty that aims to provide a non-liberal alternative to the AARP and has come under fire for distributing financial appeals designed to be confused with census material and Sheldon himself  was an associate of Jack Abramoff, the Republican lobbyist jailed for influence peddling.

Sheldon also lobbied members of the US Congress to kill the Internet Gambling Prohibition Act. Abramoff directed his client, eLottery, to pay $25,000 the Traditional Values Coalition and the TVC has also been linked to the Mariana Islands worker abuse scandal.

So I ask you.  Who would you really rather teach your children?

The ficticious “Mary” or the real life lying, hateful,  histrionic, influence pedding criminals known as  Reverend Louis P. Sheldon, Andrea Sheldon Lafferty, and The Traditional Values Coalition.
