Thank you, Dan. From the moment I stumbled across the article yesterday and alerted Gwen Saoirse, Eric Griggs, Terijo, and a number of other people to it, I had to fight nausea.

I never blamed you, though. The author was sneaky and underhanded. He has a long and sordid history of apologizing for and defending homophobic bigotry and hatred here on Medium.

I’m not surprised you missed the references he made near the very end of his article.

I am surprised that in his insincere apology, he reduced his support for hate groups to a mere error in his facts, as if the names of the hate groups he was supporting in his article simply tripped unconsciously from the tips of his fingers.

I’m delighted that you’ve taken the opportunity to clarify your position with respect to the sorts of groups this writer was defending, and I thank you for it!
