Religious right rally's first gaffe

Church opposes bigoted agenda
Liberty Sunday, yesterday's conservative Christian gay-bashing rally, is barely 12 hours old and although no transcript or video is yet available, there's already a wee problem.

According to Rightwingwatch, the actual church used in the L.S. banner to promote "religious freedom" opposes the message of L.S.
Rev. Stephen R. Ayres of Old North Church in Boston calls out the Family Research Council for using an iconic image of two lanterns in its church steeple – made famous by "Paul Revere’s Ride"...
...
Rev. Ayres notes that the church, a "symbol of freedom for all Americans," is not partisan and does not support the premise of "Liberty Sunday" – i.e., that the "homosexual agenda" is putting "religious freedom on a course of extinction."
