Skip to comments.The end of a sane society? (The word "marriage" is hate speech?)
Posted on 11/19/2007 3:37:52 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
The Court of Appeals for the U.S. Ninth Circuit upheld this summer an Oakland, Calif., city government declaration that the phrase "marriage is the foundation of the natural family and sustains family values" was inflammatory and promoted harassment based on so-called sexual orientation. The phrase was also deemed to be homophobic and disruptive.
It seems a few Christian women working for Oakland's city government formed a Good News Employee Association, and in promoting the club, included the aforementioned phrase on a flier. Later, a lesbian worker complained that the flier made her feel "targeted" and "excluded."
Most recently, hate crimes legislation was passed by both chambers of Congress. While the bills specifically address violent crime, many observers believe the legislation could be used to curtail any speech derogatory of homosexuality.
It is clear that homosexual activists and sexual libertines have been successful in pushing their political agendas. It is also becoming obvious that the arguments they have utilized, if pushed to their logical conclusions, absolutely will destroy the America we know and love.
In their effort to force society to accept and celebrate homosexual, bisexual and transgender sexual expression, activists have left the door open for all manner of behavior to be legitimized.
One of the arguments put forth by activists is that sexual deviancy is determined biologically. In spite of the fact that there is not one definitive scientific study to support this claim, sexual activists continue to insist it is an established fact.
I understand that there have been studies that "suggest" that there "could possibly be" a biological component to sexual orientation. But when the results of a scientific study are summed up in words like "might," "may," "suggest" and "possible," it proves nothing.
In spite of the lack of scientific evidence, homosexual activists and sexual libertines continue to insist that all sexual expression -- at least all they are engaged in -- is rooted in biology.
The activist mantra is that people are born homosexual, bisexual or transgender (the wrong sex) and they cannot change. As a result, they should be allowed to act on their biological predilections.
Any suggestion that a person actually might be able to change his or her sexual preference is derided. According to homosexual activists, a person is born with a certain sexual orientation and they will die with that same orientation.
When debating this issue, one of the favorite questions activists pose is, "Why would someone choose to be homosexual, bisexual or transgender?" They argue that acting on aberrant desires results in family and societal rejection as well as discrimination. "No one would choose such a lifestyle," assert the activists.
The aforementioned argument could be used to support the biological basis for pedophilia or even bestiality. Those who seek sexual gratification with children or animals are not only rejected by society, in many cases they are prosecuted under the law. No one, according to the activists, deliberately would choose a lifestyle with such consequences. Therefore, it must be innate.
Most homosexual activists will agree that pedophilia and bestiality are wrong. But on what basis do they justify their conclusion? For a biblical conservative, sexual expression is only legitimate when it occurs between a man and a woman who are married. Anything else is considered wrong. Of course, this sexual ethic is anchored in the Bible.
Homosexual activists and sexual libertines have long since cut themselves loose from any biblical sexual ethic. As such, they have no standard by which to declare that any sexual behavior is wrong. The only arguments the activist can offer against pedophilia and bestiality is that they currently are illegal, and in the case of pedophilia, it harms those who are innocent.
It should be noted there are some activists who support lowering the age of consent so adults can engage in sex with children. There are also those who believe bestiality should not be a criminal offense.
Like all other expressions of sexuality, homosexual activists and sexual libertines insist that transgender individuals are born with their orientation -- men and women born in the wrong bodies.
My only question is that if a people can be born the wrong sex, could they also be born the wrong race? The obvious answer, of course, is no.
The success of homosexual activists and sexual libertines could well be the beginning of the end of a sane American society. Only time will tell if we will return to a sexual ethic anchored in the Bible or continue to drift on a sea of subjective sexual expression. If we do not return, it is only a matter of time until we sink.
Just when you think you’ve heard it all......unbelievable!
Behavior should be out lawed, not thought or speach.
They’re wrong and I won’t abide by it. This “ruling” has no merit with me whatsoever and I’m not concerned by it one bit.
The government is constantly saying that we are too fat. I think they hate fat people.
Notice where it happened. This represents only a small portion of the USA. Most people are still sane. The radical man-hating feminazis are not.
“As a result, they should be allowed to act on their biological predilections.”
Hmmmm..lets see...pedophilia, serial killers, and people who like to roll their crap in little balls all should be encouraged and embraced, according to their logic.
But my “biological prediliction” that moism is disgusting and physically sickening is “wrong”?
Uhnnn, Kemosabe...we in heap big trouble.
Good News Employee Association
Why didn’t they have this on their own time. I wonder where the flyers were printed. If we are going to complain about wasted government spending then we need to include EVERYTHING. We pick and chose around here.
I remember hearing about this earlier. If I recall correctly, there was already a ‘diversity’ group or some such pro-lesbian flyers, etc. This was a response to that.
Seems to me that the lesbian worker may need a shrink to get over her own phobia over the word, "marriage."
Or she could move to MA where the word, "marriage" is embraced by gays and lesbians.
Is anyone else getting tired of these exclusive and self-centered feelings?
I believe the Ninth Circuit Court is a bunch of bloviating blowhards and a disruputive force full of hate and insanity. Time to sue THEM.
But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: [and] they walked in their own counsels.
Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, [and] Israel had walked in my ways!
“a lesbian worker complained that the flier made her feel “targeted” and “excluded.”
Oh, I’ll bet. Another whiner.
First they wouldn’t shut up, now they won’t grow up. Is it too much to ask that gays, lesbians, transsexual, transvestites and their ilk at least pretend to be grownups. Part of which is keeping your sexual activities PRIVATE and not getting your pubic hairs in a wad when everyone doesn’t like you oodles, and oodles.
You know what? I liked it when gays and lesbians were in the closet. Those days gave us Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward, Gertrude Stein, Rock Hudson, Farley Granger and a lot of other wonderful talented adult people. Now, well now we got Castro Street, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, NAMBLA, ACT UP and all the other waaaah groups. So y’all just shut up, grow up and lock up.
Did GWBush veto the hate crime bill as promised?
Yeah, and Churchill and FDR were just as bad as Hitler. How could they criticize Adolf for sending an army into France when they did the same thing? Those guys were notorious for picking and choosing.
No wonder we're losing the culture war. Every time the left uses the federal government to make a power grab, the response of many here is that we should just concede to it, on the grounds that we would have to go to the federal level ourselves to fight it and that would make us "just as bad as them".
Did it ever occur to you that the left already has plenty of employee associations? That being the case, what's wrong with our side having them?
George Orwell was obviously lowballing.
Well...yes, because they are at a very low level of development and consciousness. They are stuck with a 9-year-old child's view of sexuality - that boys or girls are "icky" - and they haven't matured enough to embrace the Other. With gay men it's immaturity and fearfulness, for lesbians it is more often a result of sexual abuse in childhood.
Gays and lesbians are wonderful propagandists for their own cause - happy to tell you how much more evolved they are then everyone else around them. But the observable reality is that they are lesser beings than heterosexuals, and they regress further each time a law is passed treating them as children and granting them special indemnification from the realities of life that everyone else has to bear...
