Religious Right's Hate Tactics Documented
The People For the American Way (PFAW) this August released the 1998 edition of their annual report, entitled Hostile Climate. The report compiles and analyzes a nationwide sampling of incidents of intolerance directed against gays and lesbians. It reveals that out of 170 incidents in the report, Religious Right organizations were involved in 40 percent of the cases. More than one-quarter of the included incidents occurred in just four states -- California, North Carolina, Massachusetts and Washington. "Where we should all be seeking to bring justice and equality to all Americans, the Religious Right is instead playing a destructive game of blaming the victims of anti-gay and lesbian discrimination," PFAW President Carol Shields said. For more information about the report, contact PFAW at 202-467-4999.
