Am I guilty of Slander?

Here is a post from Bob Emrich's facebook account:

I have so far chosen not to respond to the slander from Mike Heath and his friends. I realize that many of you are receiving their emails, press releases, etc. I refuse to waste my time answering each of their distortions, lies and criticism. He is trying to use my name to gain headlines and attention. I have more important work to do – (see Nehemiah 4) I only want my friends and co-laborers to that if you are troubled by the things you read, I am available to answer any questions you may have for me. I will not be offended if you are seeking the truth. As for Mike – I continue to urge him to do his own work without seeking to destroy the work of others.  As for me, I will do my best to remain in Philippians 1:12-20

I laughed out loud when I read, "He is trying to use my name to gain headlines."  I guess he thinks he can read my mind, or discern my motives.  Amazing.

I stand by every word I've written and will gladly answer any questions.  My phone number is 207-956-0819.

Allow me to be absolutely clear about why I am writing about Bob and the League.

They believe they can preserve the institution of civil marriage by not talking about the morality of homosexuality.  This stunning statement by Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, the funding group for America's national campaign to preserve civil marriage, must be understood ... and thoroughly rejected ... if we have any hope of prevailing in November.

For my readers to gain an understanding of how we got to this point I must tell the story.  It is impossible to tell the story without naming names.

I will continue to write about Bob Emrich, and anyone else who claims to know how to preserve the institution of civil marriage in Maine, because I care more about the institution of marriage than I do about my personal relationship with any other person.  Actually, I care more about stopping the sodomy lobby dead in their tracks this year. I care about ending this debate.

I don't know why Bob says and does what he says and does.  I do, however, have nearly a decade of experiences with the man and his associates that has nothing to do with friendship, and everything to do with Christianity's tepid and completely ineffective response to the idiotic and evil sexual revolution.

Bob and his associates claim they will bring everybody together.

The only group I care about bringing together right now is 70 percent of the people who vote in November.  I care less about bringing the group leaders, muslims and athiests together than I do about getting an overwhelming NO vote in November.

We aren't going to win this if we don't talk about the evil nature of the sodomy based relationship movement.

My earliest childhood memories feature the ordered Maine family life of my grandparents. That ordered family life that blessed me with such rich and innocent memories cannot develop in a culture that claims a debate about same sex "marriage" isn't about morality.

This isn't about headlines.  This isn't about Bob Emrich.  This isn't about Mike Heath.  

This is about saving Maine.
