American Renewal Vice President Richard Lessner today issued the following statement:

"We deplore the attempted blacklisting of those who dare to dissent from the political agenda of the militant homosexual lobby. This is a throwback to the rightly discredited tactics of the McCarthy era.

"Unwilling to debate the merits of their political agenda, militant homosexual activists are seeking to silence those with whom they disagree. The campaign to threaten and intimidate the sponsors of Dr. Laura Schlessinger's TV talk show is but the most egregious example of these McCarthyite tactics.

"Such organizations as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and Scouting for All do not seek to persuade the American people or defeat their political opponents through open, fair and honest debate. Instead, they work to quash all public discussion of their radical political agenda by branding those who disagree as hate-mongers and homophobes. While decrying 'defamation,' they defame their critics.

"Demonization of one's opponents is an old trick that has but one purpose: to silence them, to put them beyond the pale of civil discourse. The homosexual activists have been driven to this out of desperation. The vast majority of the American people do not support the radical political agenda of the militant homosexual lobby, which includes the legalization of same-sex marriage and compelling private organizations such as the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuality despite deeply held moral and religious beliefs.

"This is not the first time we have seen militant liberals employ the very tactics they so loudly denounce in others."
