Oklahoma pastor Paul Blair joined Family Research Council president Tony Perkins today on Washington Watch Weekly to discuss his plans to run for office after speaking out against a proposal to add protections for sexual orientation in Oklahoma City’s anti-discrimination policy. Blair has tried to frame himself as a pastor who just happened to become involved in politics after he allegedly received threats after he denounced the measure, but as Kyle notes, he has a long history of working with anti-gay zealots like Sally Kern, Janet Porter and Perkins.
While speaking with Perkins, Blair claimed that American “culture is under attack” as “we’ve gone from True Grit to Brokeback Mountain.” In his discussion of the anti-discrimination proposal, Blair asserted that “the Devil” is leading the attack on the “realms of the home and the church” through the government.
Listen: There is no picture, just sound
Our culture is under an attack. Just think in our lifetimes we have gone from an Ozzie and Harriet generation to a Desperate Housewives generation, we’ve gone from True Grit to Brokeback Mountain. Who’s supposed to stand for morality in our culture?
As Christians have abandoned the God-established realm of government, the Devil has been more than happy to fill that vacuum and now he is using government to attack the other realms of the home and the church. And we certainly are under attack.

Ok, now, I've yet to hve the chance to see Broke Back Mountain. Sorry, just haven't had that chance yet. It's one of those that's slipped by. But, what I recall of the movie, it's about two men in a small mountain town who are basically law abiding upstanding individuals.
let's contrast that with "True Grit".
True Grit starts out as a man is murdered. His murderer rides off free. The local law enforcement individual is a drunk, slob, and foul mouthed. He demands payment to do his job, a bribe really, then tries to welch.
The heroine of the movie is a 14 year old who is forced to deal with the business community, intent upon cheating her, as her mother is 'constitutionally unable' to do so.
For her attempts to find the murder of her father, she is spanked, abandoned, kidnapped, a rape is attempted, she is nearly killed far too often, and in the end dies a bitter spinster.
I'm sorry, we are supposed to go back to this "wholesome, Godly time"?
