Salt Lake City, Utah – In what is becoming a long line of seemingly last-ditch efforts to try to keep the money train flowing, extremist Paul Mero and The Sutherland Institute are now trying to convince everyone that the cause of school bullying of LGBT kids are the gay activists themselves.
Right…. So try and stay with me as we untangle this web ok? According to Sutherland’s latest article, they claim that what causes LGBT kids to get bullied is the “decline and weakening” of families and so-called ‘traditional’ marriage. They also claim that by advocating for stronger anti-bullying protections, we are somehow encouraging the “sexual liberation of the ’60′s.” So by that rationale, what causes these children to get bullied in school are the LGBT activists and advocacy groups.. right?
Like we said, just another blip in a long line of desperate attempts to convince unaware parents and families that arguments of Paul Mero and The Sutherland Institute are somehow still valid and not bordering on lunacy.
But remember that Mero and the Sutherland institute aren’t stupid, nor are they idiots who don’t actually see what’s going on. They’re beyond aware of the volumes upon volumes of research showing that marriages (whether same sex or opposite sex) strengthens families and children. They know that if they want to find the cause for kids bullying lgbt teens, they need only look in the mirror.
So why does Sutherland Institute and Paul Mero continue to bully not only adults but children by denying them the protections they so desperate need? Simple.. have you seen Mero’s house and car? Someone’s got to foot the bill for it and it might as well be the unsuspecting Utahns who never bother to look further than Mero’s purposeful “Mormon Apostolic” speaking style.
via Sutherland’s website:
..these [LGBT] groups seem much more intent upon giving teens all the liberties opened by the sexual revolution of the ’60s than in protecting teens by reaffirming marriage and family in the 21st century. No doubt the leaders of these groups believe that they are maximizing the freedom and autonomy of teens by seeking ways to protect them from bullying without reinforcing marriage and family.
