ISBL Asshat of the Week: Miss Jerry Newcombe

This week it goes Jerry Newcombe, of the ironically named Abiding "Truth" Ministries, formerly known as Coral Ridge Ministries, a megachurch of megahate.
See, this Friday is the National Day of Silence in which students across the country vow to take a form of silence to call attention to the silencing effect of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools. And Jerry Newcombe has gotten his lady-panties in a twist about it.
"It’s sad to see groups like GLSEN be accepted by the teacher's establishment and then allow the platform to go into the public schools and try and indoctrinate children. For example, they have something called the Day of Silence. Now they chose April 20 of all days to be the Day of Silence, I looked that up, I was like, 'Isn’t that Adolf Hitler’s birthday?' I looked it up and sure enough it is Adolf Hitler’s birthday. I don’t think there’s a link there but how ironic. But they are using this day as a means by which to promote their lifestyle as if it is a positive thing."
See, he doesn't come out and actually say that because the two days fall on April 20th that there is a link between Hitler and GLSEN, but he wants you to make that jump. He's assuming that people are like Jerry Newcombe, so utterly stupid and homophobic as to believe the two things have anything to do with one another.
And, for the record, Jerry, you delusional fucxkmonkey, goosestepping, probably closeted gay self-loathing homophobe, the Day of Silence does not promote being gay, it promotes awareness that gay kids are being bullied, sometime to death, for being gay, and asks people to use silence as a weapon  against bullying.
I guess the 'god' you pray to doesn't mind kids being bullied, so, for that, little Miss Jerry Newcombe wins this week's ISBL Asshat of the Week Award.
Frame it.
Post it on a wall.
Make a t-shirt out of it.
Or, just shove it.

The Day of Silence is more like Easter in that it is observed not on a specific date but a specific day - usually the 3rd Friday of April.

April 20th is also Mother Angelica's birthday - I guess he didn't know that! said...

A deserving award for a total Tool.
