BREAKING: Anti-Muslim Speaker Also A Virulent Homophobe
Jan 25, 2012 — Our efforts are picking up steam; we were mentioned last night in the Baltimore Sun and in several local Maryland blogs.
Unfortunately, the speaker that Mayor Rick Meehan is hosting tomorrow, is even more extreme than we thought, and we are running out of time.
People for the American Way has uncovered anti-LGBT statements by retired Lt. Gen. Boykin, a notorious anti-Muslim activist headlining the Ocean City, Md. Mayor's Prayer Breakfast tomorrow. Boykin spoke out against DADT repeal, saying "aberrant behavior can really tear up the integrity of the organization.” Boykin has also stated, "I do not believe that [being gay] is in any way or form sanctioned by God or by the Bible.”
Can you help us make sure that Ocean City does not endorse this kind of hatred? Please use our Facebook Application to post a message Mayor Meehan's Facebook wall and ask him to disassociate himself from this anti-Muslim, anti-gay bigotry:
