Because religion teaches these Christo-Fascist moral monsters that its main tenet is killing LGBT/T folks by stoning. One of the main Christo-Fascist arguments against anti-bullying and hate crimes laws is that they violate their religious freedom.
Freedom is not the freedom to oppress others. Although that is the Ayn Rand/John Galt model.
Yesterday Alternet ran an article describing Ayn Rand’s facination with a sociopathic murderer and how she saw him as the perfect model.
So what, and who, was Ayn Rand for and against? The best way to get to the bottom of it is to take a look at how she developed the superhero of her novel, Atlas Shrugged, John Galt. Back in the late 1920s, as Ayn Rand was working out her philosophy, she became enthralled by a real-life American serial killer, William Edward Hickman, whose gruesome, sadistic dismemberment of 12-year-old girl named Marion Parker in 1927 shocked the nation. Rand filled her early notebooks with worshipful praise of Hickman. According to biographer Jennifer Burns, author of Goddess of the Market, Rand was so smitten by Hickman that she modeled her first literary creation — Danny Renahan, the protagonist of her unfinished first novel, The Little Street — on him.
What did Rand admire so much about Hickman? His sociopathic qualities: “Other people do not exist for him, and he does not see why they should,” she wrote, gushing that Hickman had “no regard whatsoever for all that society holds sacred, and with a consciousness all his own. He has the true, innate psychology of a Superman. He can never realize and feel ‘other people.’”
This echoes almost word for word Rand’s later description of her character Howard Roark, the hero of her novel The Fountainhead: “He was born without the ability to consider others.”
One may argue that this is a perversion of Christianity and yet historically Christianity along with Islam has spread at the point of a sword leaving millions upon millions of bodies in its wake.
How perfectly sociopathic to totally disregard the pain and suffering this ideology of hate causes LGBT/T people.

// ]]>A pair of Alameda parents is suing the school district and school board, claiming the board violated the Brown Act by voting to readopt the anti-gay bullying Lesson 9 and to adopt accompanying literature that they said wasn’t included in the staff’s original recommendation.
