Several Republicans Appear In New Anti-Gay Film (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Christian activist Janet Porter released a trailer today for her new anti-gay film, which features several Republicans who are in Congress and may be running for president in 2016.

In an email to supporters, Porter said she planned to release the entire documentary "Light Win: How To Overcome The Criminalization Of Christianity" at the National Religious Broadcaster's Convention in Nashville on Feb. 24.

In the trailer (video below), Christian leaders and Republicans warn that gay rights will somehow result in silencing Christians' free speech and criminalizing Christianity (video below).

According to RightWingWatch.org, there are appearances in the film by "Rep. Steve King, Rep. Trent Franks, Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Tim Huelskamp, Sen. Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, David Barton, James Dobson, Mat Staver, Phyllis Schlafly, Scott Lively, Alveda King, Brian Camenker, Frank Pavone, Robert Knight, John Stemberger, and, of course, Porter herself..."

Porter opens the film by carrying a lantern in some dark woods.

"What kind of freedom of speech do we have if a person who expresses a Biblical viewpoint about marriage is told they cant open their businesses in a location?" asks Huckabee.

Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and Fox News host, recently defended an anti-dancing stance that he took as a teen.

“I strongly recommend that Christian teens stay away from dancing, mainly because some people would just not be able to respect a person who attended dances,” Huckabee wrote when he was 17 years old for the Baptist Trumpet, which was published by the Baptist Missionary Association of Arkansas, noted Buzzfeed.

Today, Huckabee responded to criticism of that position by claiming his religious beliefs were under attack, reports RawStory.com.

“I just find that it’s amazing, but it shows though how contemptuous that the left really is toward believers,” Huckabee told conservative radio host Tony Perkins. “They truly do think that we are just laughable for the beliefs we hold.”

However, Huckabee's "beliefs" aren't supported the Bible, which actually advocates dancing.
