LOS ANGELES (ChurchMilitant.com) - Ryan Murphy, an active homosexual and the producer behind dozens of award-winning television shows like Glee, American Horror Story and Pose, declared he will be pouring money to block so-called anti-LGBT candidates from taking office in the 2020 elections.
He announced his new effort, Pose Gives Back, on Sunday while getting an award at the TrevorLive gala sponsored by The Trevor Project, an organization promoting homosexuality and transgender ideology to young people.
The project will donate money to 20 pro-LGBT political candidates running opposite pro-family and pro-life candidates in the 2020 elections.
Murphy asserted, "I want these hateful and wrong politicians to go, and to stop polluting our moral and ethical ether," adding, "We are going to send a message which says you cannot make discrimination against us a political virtue anymore. You can't keep killing our vulnerable young people by promoting and nationalizing your rural, close-minded anti-constitutional viewpoints."
He disclosed the idea came to him after watching House Democrat candidates taking key seats away from Republicans in last month's midterm elections: "One after one, anti-LGBTQ candidates who made hate speech and ideology part of their legacy fell, disgraced and eliminated by Democratic candidates — who were largely boosted by victory by young and female voters, by the way." He added, "Over 20 anti-LGBTQ right-wing politicians and their horrifying views gone in a day."
Murphy related in an NPR interview from 2009 that he was brought up Catholic and, as a child, used to pray daily, wanting to become a pope: "And so my mother would tell me that you became the pope by not committing any sins, so I would sort of begin my day every morning with a prayer, please don't let me sin."
He added, "I wasn't interested in just a priest. I wanted to aim really, really high."
He maintained that he still attended Mass in Los Angeles, adding, "Many of the priests and the nuns and the people who work at the church are [embracing] so, I do go to church … here in Los Angeles and I have always been embraced in the church. The different kind of churches that I go to seem to have a sort of large gay contingency and no one says anything."
