Homophobes On Parade

Joe Jervis, owner the the award winning gay political blog, has reported on many closet homophobes over the years. I visit his site daily for news and updates and often pass along his work.
Thank you Joe.

Here is his report on the latest closet case and how it has developed so far. After reading and watching the video, be sure to click on the link that takes you to another very cool site that has been keeping track of the closet homophobes for years.

The sad thing about these guys is that they have been or are in positions of power and have used it AGAINST the LGBT population. This is a direct result of all the hate and lies about our people. When a person discovers they are LGBT, it is hard to come to terms with it when all around are people saying how bad/nasty/evil they are. It is very easy to hate yourself and do and say hateful things to make the rest of us look bad. Makes one wonder about those that yell damnation the loudest like
Bryan Fischer, Peter Sprigg, Matt Barber, Brian Brown, and Pete LaBarbera. All speakers for Hate Groups.

Conservative Houston radio host Michael Berry has been identified on the security videos of a local drag bar shortly before he fled a hit-and-run incident in the club's parking lot. As I reported yesterday, Berry is known for fiery condemnations of minorities, with "crackheads and welfare queens" his most commonly-used expression to describe Houston's poor. Berry claims that his employers won't let him discuss the incident. Some say he fled the scene in order to avoid a DUI arrest, others say he left because he'd been in a gay nightclub.
On his radio broadcast Thursday, which was posted online as a podcast, Berry alluded to the controversy. "I've always said when you do what I do, the way I do it, you make enemies. When you poke your finger in as many people's eye as I do every day, you make enemies," said Berry. He said that his detractors "will accuse you of most anything" and he added, "You have to trust that in the end, the system works itself out, that there are checks and balances, there are people who will verify. But you also recognize that there are some people who want you to be crushed. There's some people who hate you. There are some people who privately would benefit from you not being on the air." He said he does not respond to reporters who question him "on their turf" because it is subject to editing. However, at no point in his broadcast did he deny being behind the wheel and at no point did he address his presence in the club. "You simply cannot go out there and chase down every nasty thing that is said about you. Just because someone says something nasty about you doesn't make it true," he said.
Local prosecutors have demanded that the Houston police charge Berry after public outcry that his fame had allowed him to evade investigation.
