An Open Letter To The Anti-Gay Minister Who Thanked LGBTs For Making Him More Anti-Gay

Dear Kevin Shrum,
I made my way through your boring-ass post-SCOTUS letter to the LGBT community, thanking us for making you more anti-gay. It’s boring, by the way, because you have literally nothing to say to us that we haven’t heard like five million times: every time we congregate publicly, most of the times that…
