Janet Porter has no shame.
Formerly Janet Folger, she launched the disastrous “Truth in Love” ex-gay advertising campaign in 1998, with 15 other anti-gay organizations.
Of course, we all know what happened. I photographed their poster boy, John Paulk, inside a gay bar in 2000. Along with attorney Michael Hamar, we also exposed their other spokesperson, Michael Johnston, for having orgies with men he met online.
Way to go Janet. Your campaign was a real “success”.
Instead of slinking off in shame, Porter/Folger is trying to make a comeback. She organized the failed “May Day: A Cry To God For A Nation In Distress” rally this month. No wonder why former Christian Coalition head, Ralph Reed derisively once referred to her as an “issues entrepreneur”. There is no depth she will not stoop, lie she won’t tell, or issue she will not opportunistically embrace.
Her latest outrage is an attack on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan. In an obnoxious “Action Alert”, Porter has a headline that reads: “Lesbian Nominated to Supreme Court.” What evidence does Porter have to make this allegation? Has she slept with Kagen?
In the Action Alert, her Faith 2 Action organization asks members to:
“Contact Chaplain Klingenschmitt’s Pray in Jesus Name organization can send a fax petition to all 100 U.S. Senators, or a couple of smaller groups of swing-vote or Judiciary Committee Senators on your behalf, opposing this nomination.”
Folger/Porter is up to her same old bag of despicable dirty tricks. She’s just a bundle of hype and hyperbole operating under the guise of fundamentalist Christianity.
