Mission: America Hatefrau Linda Harvey and CCV’s Phil Burress: We Endorse Ted Cruz He’s Anti-Gay and Dreamy

Linda Harvey slime

Columbus, Ohio Hatefrau Linda Harvey of Mission: America who recently complained about  how she and other anti-gay activists are running out of places to shop. Today “officially” endorsed Ted Cruz for President alongside two other D-list haters Phil Burress ex-porn addict and now President of Cincinnati’s anti-gay hate group the Citizens for Community Values and Whack-a-doodle Molly Smith of Cleveland Right to Life a joint press release issued Monday. The release directs supporters to the website of Keep The Promise, a pro-Cruz Super PAC led by Religious Right activist David Barton, but the endorsements have not been promoted by the PAC or the Cruz campaign, at least not yet.

Buress is a close friend of Brian “Grampa’s off his meds again” Fischer of the American Family Association and his organization the CCV is fully embroiled in Ohio politics brags about being officially affiliated with the unholy trinity of anti-gay hate groups the Family Research Council, the AFA and Focus on the Family.

Harvey who runs the one woman hate group Mission: America and somehow manages to have a weekly radio show has claimed that efforts to combat bullying of LGBT young people amount to “sexual abuse.”

Said that gays “were not born this way, but created through sexual indoctrination” and now want to recruit kids in turn.

Worried that LGBT youth are possessed by “demonic spirits.”

Said that gay pride parades are signs of God’s impending judgment on America and “ought to be banned.”

Backed Jamaica’s law criminalizing homosexuality. 

And has actually loves gay people, but supporting gay rights is “the least compassionate, the meanest and most hateful thing you can do” because that will “accelerate and confirm this behavior in more and more people in our country.”

Welcome to Ohio.

Hell IS Real

Ohio’s FRC Affiliate Leader Phil Burress: “Portman’s Gay Son PUSHED Him Into Accepting Gay Marriage”

Phil Burress douchebag

Since the days of Larry Flynt,  Cincinnati, OH has been famous for having a puritanical stick up its ass.   And no one in Cincinnati’s stick is bigger  than that of Phil Burress of the “ex-porn addict” and President of religious right-wing  group Citizens for Community Values which is officially associated with the American Family Association, Family Research Council and Focus on the Family (And they are so proud of that fact that they brag about it)

After hearing today that his ultra conservative friend and Ohio State Senator Rob Portman came out in support of same-sex marriage stating :”I’ve come to the conclusion that for me, personally, I think this is something that we should allow people to do, to get married, and to have the joy and stability of marriage that I’ve had for over 26 years.”  Burress appeared on American Family Association’s OneNewsNow  to do anti-gay spin control saying that Portman is a “a very troubled man right now and is distraught over what’s happening with his son.” And that Burress himself “just has a feeling that his son was pushing him into this for political reasons,”.

Later that day on the CCV website Burress wrote the following statement to his “followers”

Rob called me Thursday night at 9:00 p.m. to share about his situation and the position he was taking concerning his son and same-sex marriage.

I believe Rob will understand why, as much as I might ache for my friend and the painful emotional struggle of his son’s identification as gay, that it does not change why I still strongly support natural marriage as only between a man and a woman.

I explained to Rob that my wife (Vicky, who he met at an AFA meeting) and I served on the board of an organization that saw thousands of homosexual men and women walk away from that behavior (Exodus International), many who went on to a natural marriage and were also blessed with children. I told him we would pray that some day his son would as well.

For Rob, it appears his beliefs on same-sex marriage changed when it became personal. I understand that. Yet it does not change the truth that homosexuality is not innate. The evidence of that is in the lives of so many today that live free of unwanted same-sex attraction.

Many Ohioans know family members and friends who identify as homosexual. Yet an overwhelming number of Ohioans also voted to affirm marriage as only between one man and one woman. They didn’t do so out of some misplaced hatred or fear of homosexuality. Like my wife and I, they understood the importance of a married mother and father in the life of children. They understood that a mother and father each bring unique and character shaping attributes to a child’s life. The simple truth is that a mother cares for and nurtures a child in a way a father just can’t. In the same way, a father cares for and relates to a child in the way a mother can’t. That is the inescapable truth of the debate Rob has now ignited in Ohio over same-sex marriage.

Not every family would make the same decision Rob did. Many parents, because of their deep and abiding love for their child, would not accept and embrace their child’s decision regarding homosexuality. My wife and I believe that if you love someone you tell them the truth. They may not like what they hear, but you love them anyway.

The question now is not whether parents love their children when they identify as gay. It is whether Ohioans will allow the personal experience of one high-profile family to sway its deeply held belief in the original purpose and meaning of marriage.

Burress and his group the CCV along with COAST henchman lawyer Christopher Finney who now has now infiltrated the Cincinnati NAACP chapter to spread his hatred of homosexuals and his ultra right-wing conservative ways wrot Ohio’s “anti-gay marriage/one man, one woman amendment” which is one of the strongest worded in the country and forbids any rights for same-sex couples in the Ohio even under domestic partnerships or civil unions and also shares some credit for John McCain’s transformation from political maverick into doddering old fool and ally of the Christian Right. And back in 1998

Phil Burress and the Citizens for Community Values, are the locked and loaded dangerous country bumpkin cousins of the FRC and the AFA.  But make no mistake. They are much more dangerous and play to a much more gullible and naive audience who hang on thier every ord and are fully backed by Ohio’s republican mafia party.  They oppose any protections and rights for LGBT  citizens and made outrageous, disgusting and inaccurate statements in the name of God to cover their hate and push their heinous agenda.

Said Burress recently about a push for  LGBT protections in Ohio: When the governor acknowledges  them [gays] as a minority group, which they are not,  you’re  also saying to them that their behavior is OK. And it’s NOT OK to engage in this type of behavior when it’s gonna cause you possibly to die from AIDS.”.

This is Cinicinnati. This is the midwest.  This is where we need to stand up and  fight the hardest.


Ohio’s Citizens For Community Values Uses Lies and Trans Panic In An Attempt To Defeat Bowling Green, OH

I have warned people so many times about just how dangerous that Cincinnati’s Citizens For Community Values which in reality is the Midwest arm of Focus on the Family and Tony Perkin’s Family Research Council really are,  and the damage that they do. 

Now, the CCV is once again  using lies and “trans panic” in an attempt to get voters to go to the polls on November 2nd and repeal Bowling Green’s Ohio Ordinances 7905 and 7906, expanding non-discrimination protections  include: gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, and HIV status among other characteristics. The Unlawful Discrimination Ordinance extends protection in employment, public accommodation and access to public education. The amended Fair Housing Ordinance adds the new classes to existing City law and was passed by Bowling Green City Council in 2009 which the CCV helped get petitioned to be on the ballot this November to be repealed.

As part of the lies that the CCV is using to get people to the Polls to vote no on Ordinances 7905 and 7906 they are using the disguting “trans panic bathroom senario” which is spelled out in this email sent by the CCV President Phil Burress (above pictured left)  that’s being sent to members using trans fear to raise money for this hateful organization..  (Continued after the jump…)

Dear Friends,

Our friends in Bowling Green, Ohio, need our prayers and support. Homosexual activists are once again wanting SPECIAL RIGHTS, but what the Bowling Green City Council did is far beyond anything else I have seen in Ohio and could be coming to your city next.

Here is an example of what could happen:

You and your young daughter, planning for her first day of school, go to the mall to look for clothes. While there, your daughter leaves you to go to the restroom. After just a few moments, she comes back with a frightened look on her face and wants to leave quickly. It is obvious she is very distressed. As a concerned parent, you try to comfort your child, seeking to calm her distress while trying to learn its cause.

Once you leave, as she settles down, you begin to ask questions.

“What happened? Did someone try to grab you?”

“No,” is her reply.

“Did you see something wrong?”  There is a long pause. Finally you ask, “Sweetheart, what is it that made you upset and not want to go back?”

You are caught speechless and bewildered by her reply:

“Mama, there were men in the girls bathroom wearing dresses!”

This is a conversation that parents might have to have with their children in Bowling Green in the near future. When the Bowling Green City Council passed ordinances 7905 and 7906, they created the environment that will make this scenario real in our places of public accommodation.

Imagine having to explain to your young, impressionable child that she has to accept having this situation be a normal part of being in Bowling Green.

Imagine having to continually wonder if your child may be entering a public restroom where an adult of the opposite sex may be inside, all because our elected officials want those with gender identity confusion to feel comfortable using the public restrooms of their preferred gender.

If special interest groups get their way, you won’t have to imagine it; you will have to live it.

Citizens of Bowling Green will have to face investigations and penalties for failure to comply with the ordinances, whether it be in providing public accommodations, hiring, or rental of property.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Concerned citizens of Bowling Green came together and petitioned to have these ordinances put to a public referendum. They agreed and signed the petitions to allow the referendum to move forward.

Now we have to make sure we educate and encourage Bowling Green voters to come to the polls on November 2nd and vote “NO” on Ordinances 7905 and 7906.

It is vital that we are able to educate the voters of Bowling Green on the dangers of having these ordinances go into law, and to encourage and secure enough voters so that these ordinances can be overturned.

We can be successful in defeating these ordinances if you are willing to join us in this effort.

A majority “NO” vote on November 2nd will cancel these ordinances and send a strong message to the Bowling Green City Council that their community does not want to have outside special interests from New York attempting to frame their laws so that they can move their homosexual agenda forward.

Your involvement and support will be the key to success. Will you please consider making a contribution to our effort of $25, $50, or even $100 or more to help them make sure that their children will not have to face the scenario described in the opening of this letter?

You can send your tax deductible gift to Citizens for Community Values, ——————.. Let’s help make Bowling Green a better place to live, work and raise a family. Will you stand with us for Equal Rights, Not Special Rights, for all of Bowling Green’s citizens?


Phil Burress
Citizens for Community Values

This is NOT a “bathroom bill” and Buress’s letter is nothing more than blatant fear-mongering to defeat Ordinances 7905 and 7906 and raise some quick “hate cash” . Personally, I don’t spend time checking out other people’s private parts in public restrooms. Unless they are cute guys.  What REALLY creeps me out is when fathers bring their young daughters into Men’s restrooms because they are afraid to leave them outside  Now thats CREEPY.

The scary bathroom trick is the same one that was used in the 1930s to warn against “Bolsheviks breeding in your washroom.” Opponents of the Equal Rights Amendment trotted out the old saw again in 1970s, warning that equal rights would lead to men and women sharing public bathrooms.  

Christomaniacs like the CCV point to the potential danger of crossdressed and/or trans women predators in public restrooms, and yet the folks who purport that anti-trans Bathroom scare can’t point to any examples of trans people ever being involved in anything like that and have to use some false scenario’s/ 

Well lets use some REAL scenario’s to why maybe Phil Buress, Tony Perkin’s The CCV, and Christomaniacs of his ilk should not be able to use public restrooms.

The Los Angeles Times had a story yesterday (November 2, 2009) entitled Clerk at religious bookstore arrested on peeping charge

A clerk at a Christian bookstore in Simi Valley was arrested on suspicion of peeping after Simi Valley police found a video camera hidden in a bathroom at the store, authorities said today.

Officers were called to the Family Christian Book Store in the 2900 block of Cochran Street on Sunday afternoon after a 40-year-old woman and her husband reported finding the video camera, said Simi Valley Police Sgt. Dwight Thompson.   After examining the video, investigators determined that 28-year-old Joseph Moreaux had gone to the restroom just before the victim to hide the camera and record her while she was inside…

And, this isn’t a particularly new story when it comes to piety. Remember October 20th’s Protect Us From The Male, CVS Managers Who Support Keeping Trans Women Out Of Women’s Restrooms?

The CVS Pharmacy manager who allegedly admitted Friday to filming women in his store’s bathroom was an active participant in the 2008 charter amendment to “keep men out of women’s restrooms.”

Jonathan Matheny, 27, was charged with one count of video voyeurism after a customer told police she had discovered a cell phone equipped with a camera under a pile of tissues in the CVS bathroom at 125 S.W. 34th St.

If you want to talk about predatory behavior lets talk about the Christomaniacs.  The ones who like and fear monger against the LGBT Community and our trans brothers and sisters.

People of Bowling Green   DO NOT FALL FOR THESE LIES. VOTES YES ON ORDINANCES 7905 and 7906.  And send a message to the CCV that fear mongering and anti LGBT hate is WRONG

And people of Ohio and the Midwest do not trust or support the Citizens for Community Values.  They are evil and perverted Christians who will do their best to spread hatred and homophobia for fun and profit.  Do not trust them and most of all  not discount them or take them lightly.  They are dangerous and need to be stopped.

WANTED FOR MURDER: Phil Burress and "The Citizens For Community Values" of Ohio

I have written before about Phil Burress (pictured left) and Cincinnati,Oho based “Citizens for CommunityValues”   who are one of the most dangerous anti-gay hate groups in the Midwest and  are officially associated with Focus on the Family, The Family Research Council and the American family Association.  They have been directly linked to helping in the passage of not only the Ohio DOMA law but also passage of the Federal DOMA Law.  The President of their sister organization in California was one of the leaders for “Yes on 8”,  they have most Republican politicians in the Ohio, Indianna, and Kentucky region in their pockets and have fought to repeal anti-gay discrimination laws and human rights ordinances throughout the state of Ohio.

Phil Burress and the CCV seem to be able to fly under the radar in the rest of the county outside the Midwest because the group hides behind their anti-pornography campaign” and they localize their anti-gay hate movement to the Midwest.  but one trip to their website spells out bluntly where they stand on LGBT individuals. (All in the name of Christ, of course)

Members of The National Pro-Family Forum on Homosexuality – This group includes representatives from most of the national pro-family organizations and meets every three months, usually in Washington, D.C. The group’s first organized effort was the National Campaign to Protect Marriage that mobilized national and local pro-family leaders in all 50 states to work together to defend traditional “one man-one woman” marriage. However, their major achievement has been The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and other similar laws that were passed in 36 states since 1996. Another major achievement of this forum was the “Truth in Love” full-page ad and campaign printed in many major newspapers and on TV

Even more alarming than the destructive effect upon the individual is the threat that the activists’ agenda poses upon society as a whole. Again we repeat, the traditional family-one father, one mother, and their natural or adopted children-is the basic building block of society. Not just our society, but society as a whole. The history of civilization proves that when a particular society strays from this norm, that society deteriorates.

Homosexual activists are not simply seeking acceptance of individuals who engage in homosexual behavior. Rather, the primary, clearly stated focus of their agenda is normalization, complete social acceptance, of homosexual relationships and the undermining of the traditional family. Just as we cannot stand by silently and watch individuals lured into a destructive lifestyle, we also cannot stand by silently and watch militant activists chip away at the very foundation of our cultural heritage and our Judeo-Christian belief system.

One very important part of the homosexual activists’ agenda is to raise the awareness of homosexuality, or simply stated, to talk about homosexuality frequently and loudly. In virtually every area of our lives, the homosexual activists have been successful in raising the homosexual issue. Every one of us has been forced to be a part of the argument regarding homosexuality and marriage; homosexuality and adoption; homosexuality and civil rights; homosexuality and minority status; homosexuality and the armed forces.

Suicide and bullying rates on LGBT teens as well as harassment and violence against LGBT adultss are much higher in the Midwest.  Recently there has been 4 teen suicides in just ONE Ohio school alone due to bullying and anti-gay harassment. that has not been privy to the national spotlight.

People like Burress and the CCV who preach intolerance and hate in the name of God are those who are responsible for these recent deaths.  They teach hate nothing more, nothing less and a spotlight must be shone upon them and they must be outed across the nation for the hateful despicable people that they really are and they must be stopped.  .They have blood on their hands, and much more than that of the four teens at that Ohio School.  By preaching their vile message they have become accessories to murder and violence to LGBT teens and adults throughout the Midwest and the country.

They must be held responsible and they must be stopped before more blood is shed and before more Innocent lives are lost.

*You can watch a propaganda video from the CCV called “168 days – A Miracle” where they brag about how they helped with the Federal DOMA laws and made Ohio have the toughest DOMA laws in the country after the jump.

Over 3000+ Attend Downtown Cincinnati Gay Pride Celebration Despite Hysterical Warnings By Ohio’s Biggest Anti-Gay Hate Group

Cincinnati Pride 2010 which for the first time in 8 years moved back to Fountain Square in Downtown Cincinnati was a rousing success drawing an estimated 3,000 people who came to celebrate freedom and independence, for their country and their lifestyle despite attacks from Phil Burress, a self-described former porn addict turned Christian fundamentalist crusader against pornography and the “gay agenda,” and Ohio’s largest anti-gay “christian” group The Citizens for Community Values which has EXTREMELY close ties to James Dobson’s Foucus on the Family  and officially recognized “hate group” by the Southern Law Poverty Center The Family Research Association which is led by extreme homophobe Tony Perkins.

In the days perceding Cincinnati Pride Burress, President of Citizens for Community Values, issued an hysterical “action alert,” warning his membership of the danger of “homosexual activists” taking to the streets of downtown Cincinnati with their “deviant behavior” in a sinful celebration of “sexual appetite.” (in which of course he pleaded for donations to fight the “gay scourge”) and . during an interview with a local paper, he warned families planning to visit downtown Cincinnati on the 4th, to be on the lookout for gay parade attendees having sexual intercourse out in the open ont the street and topless lesbian women!  (If only!)

Phil Burress has been peddling gay hate since the 90s, with an obsessive fervor that only a former porn addict can muster. In 1993, Burress launched a successful campaign to overturn Cincinnati’s anti-discrimination protections for sexual orientation. And Burress and his group was at the forefront of helping draft and push Ohio’s 2004 amendment banning gay marriage which is one of the worst in the country and which not only bans gay marriage but also bans any type of “marriage rights and benefits” to also any couple gay or straight who enter into a domestic partnership or civil union.

But fortunately there are some REAL human beings in Cincinnati also.

Katie Ambrogi, 31, of Blue Ash watched the 40-minute parade with her husband and three children.  “We just like equality for everybody. Let the kids see that there are differences. People are the same,” Ambrogi said. How did the kids respond to seeing men in huge hair, high heels and flamboyant dresses or the shirtless elves on a Christmas float in 90-degree temperature with an elf singing “Walking in a Winter Wonderland”?  “They’re beautiful people and kids should see that,” Ambrogi said with a smile.

Thank you Katie!

Thnaks to you your children might be the last chance that Cincinnati, Ohio ever has to coming into the twenty first century and leaving Mr. Buress and the CCV back in 1943 Nazi Germany where they belong
