SaveCalifornia.com President Randy
Thomasson has called San Francisco's newly-minted GLBT History Museum
a “propaganda porch.”
The first-of-its-kind museum in the
United States showcases the history of gay culture. It opens with
two exhibits: Our Vast Queer Past: Celebrating GLBT History in
the main gallery and Great Collections of the GLBT Historical
Society Archives in the front gallery.
railed against the state celebrating the contributions of gay rights
leader Harvey Milk and called
on former state Senator Roy Ashburn to step down after he announced
he was gay.
Thomasson called the museum a sham.
“This is not so much a museum; this
is a propaganda porch,” Thomasson told the Christian-based website
OneNewsNow.com. “There [are] going to be some people who want to
believe in lies while they're visiting, but anybody interested in
real history is going to find so many pages ripped out of that book.”
“Thomasson further argues that the
museum fails to mention the truth about alternative lifestyles, as it
omits information about the AIDS epidemic, sexual crimes, and
molestation, as well as the trampling of fundamental and religious
rights in the name of 'equality,'” the website wrote.
“I believe they'll have the money to
keep this place open because it will become sort of a Mecca to them,”
Thomasson said. “And it's unfortunate – celebrating a lie
instead of acknowledging the truth.”
