Homosexual zealotry ^ | May 30, 2000 | By Linda Bowles

Posted on 03/06/2003 11:13:11 AM PST by GrandMoM

I would rather walk a mile barefoot on broken glass than endure a confrontation with homosexual zealots.

However, that less painful path cannot be responsibly taken. What choice is there but to stand in opposition to homosexual activists with their in-your-face arrogance, their malicious attacks on religion, family values and moral standards, and, in essence, their demand that American society be turned upside down and inside out to accommodate their sexual disorientations?

It is unconscionable that homosexual invectives and threats have effectively shut down most attempts to expose bogus research or address the cultural implications of the homosexual agenda. It should be, but apparently is not, a matter of serious concern, even shame, that so many of our politicians, our journalists and commentators, our scientists, our government schools teachers, our university professors and our clergy have either been seduced to advance the homosexual agenda, intimidated into passive assent, or cowed into silence.

It is one of the great ironies of modern-day America that it is liberals who are not only enabling, but spearheading a vicious version of McCarthyism at its worse. Rarely in the history of our republic has there been such a successful effort to keep lies alive, suppress the truth, censor speech, and engage in blatant character assassination.

It is successful because huge organizations like Procter and Gamble and AT&T have been bullied into withdrawing advertisements from a forthcoming television show featuring Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Dr. Laura's mortal sin is in telling the clear truth about homosexuals, not as part of a crusade, but in response to call-in questions and inquiries. She tells the straight truth about homosexuals, and it sounds like hate speech to those who hate the truth and do not have the courage to deal with it.

It is successful because, even now, a significant majority of Americans believe homosexuals are born that way and that a full 10 percent of the population is homosexual, even though the data and scientific evidence to support such beliefs simply do not exist. While the homosexual lobbyists and radical activists are attacking on multiple fronts, one of the more underreported campaigns is taking place in government schools, the target being young children. In a scantily reported news event, two employees of the Massachusetts Department of Education and a paid consultant conducted a "Teach Out" at Tufts University. The event was sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Children were delivered to the conference in school buses, and government school teachers who attended earned state development credits. The workshop was entitled, "What They Didn't Tell You About Queer Sex & Sexuality in the Health Class," and it lived up to its name. The message delivered to teenagers as young as 14, a "how-to" in oral sex, anal sex and "fisting," a hideous violation of the human body which is too vile and perverted to describe in a family newspaper.

The attempted cover up by the Massachusetts Department of Education broke down when it was revealed that several of the workshops were secretly taped by Scott Whitman of the Parents Rights Coalition. As a result of full coverage given by the Massachusetts news and a failure of legal efforts to suppress the tapes, the State Commissioner of Education, David Driscoll, was forced to apologize, and the two state instructors were fired.

In the meanwhile, a 12-page booklet entitled, "Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation & Youth," has been mailed to the heads of all 14,700 public school districts in America. Its message has been endorsed by a number of mental health organizations, and has the blessings of the National Education Association, the largest teachers' union in America.

This booklet of facts has many kind words to say about homosexuality, but leaves out facts about its high risks and dangers. It also leaves out the fact that all the major religions of the world consider homosexuality wrong, sinful and immoral.

This is a convenient omission, in that the booklet discourages any discussion of "reparative therapy" for unhappy homosexuals. The reason given for censoring out information on homosexuals who have successfully changed their lives is that these changes often involve religion -- and any discussion of religion in government schools, as the booklet warns, raises "constitutional problems." It also raises solemn concerns about whether "sex education" should occur in a school environment where the teachings of major religions are outlawed, the spiritual wisdom of the ages is not allowed, and moral discernment is forbidden.

It is unconscionable that homosexual invectives and threats have effectively shut down most attempts to expose bogus research or address the cultural implications of the homosexual agenda.

The cultural implications is the byproduct of the bogus research which is the byproduct of the APA vote to ignore the science behind the pathology. A parallel can be drawn, what would our society look like if the APA removed the shame and stigma behind the pathology of incest?

Then outcome based “reseach” would follow showing how incestuals could function normally in society. Pretty soon liberals would feel sorry for incestuals who encountered any kind of discrimination and form incest/straight alliances (ISA’s). Then the incestuals would form political action groups to demonize anyone disagreed with the practice of incest and then these groups would initiate fundraisers to raise money for media advertising, civil law suits to intimidate the average citizen who speaks out against them and a campaign for condom use to prevent genetic defects…AGDS walks (Acquired Genetic Defect Syndrome). Incest pride parades, special churches that ignore Leviticus, a political campaign to legalize incestual marriage… (Sound of head exploding)

The nation arrives at the level of degeneracy it deserves based on its acceptance quotients. Homosexual degeneracy is but one type of degeneracy in America; until more of the degeneracies are unacceptable, homosexual degeneracy will be tolerated as a means to protect other degeneracies.

This senator (chairman of the state education committee, no less) in Oregon might have the right idea about his state's public schools and what parents should do about them -- flee.

I bet you'd never hear Massachusetts' education committee chairman tell that to parents in his/her state.

I read the homeschooling link that you provided. So I guess advocating homeschooling and being critical of the NEA is tantamount to hate speech. The NEA is nothing but a tax-funded mafia.

[I would rather walk a mile barefoot on broken glass than endure a confrontation with homosexual zealots.]

Speaking of confrontations, remember the anti-Dr. Laura scene on The West Wing sometime ago?


The West Wing episode that blasted Dr. Laura was little more than an attack ad. The rant by "President Bartlet" was full of venom and hyperbole.

The character is portrayed as a very prominently devout Catholic so his rant seemed to be hypocritical; the Church teaches that Scripture opposes same gender sexual acts as immoral always. The orthodoxies of Judaism and Protestantism pretty much arrive at the same conclusion. And they all teach that all of Scripture is the inviolate word of God and that all of it is to be followed by believers. Within each the consistency is well-scrutinize, however, inter-faith contradictions persist (of course).

The scriptwriter, Aaron Sorkin, has admitted to the gay publication, The Advocate, that his rant scene's list of ordinances from Mosaic Law was just an excuse to blast Dr. Laura. Unfortunately the means used amounted to a rather ill-informed attack on the moral relevancy of the Bible. Disagree with people and disagree with their religious beliefs, but why shoutdown someone with a rant that gets most of the references very, very wrong? Seems self-defeating to me because it destroys the creditibility of everyone involved -- both sides get smeared.

Anyway, here's a tongue-in-cheek replay of the scene, but with the Dr. Laura character actually speaking up with a few answers to the rhetorical questions of the show's President Bartlet. If you watch The West Wing you might get some of the show-related jokes and puns in the added responses from the Dr. Laura character.

This replay appeared in a discussion of The West Wing (The Midterms) at the following website:

A literal account of the Bartlet v. Dr. Laura scene:

BARTLET: Forgive me, Dr. Laura, are you an M.D.?

DR LAURA: No sir, I'm not a medical doctor.

My credentials? Well, I have a B.S. in Biology Sciences, State University. An M.S. and Ph.D in Physiology and an M. Philosophy from Colombia. Post-doctoral certification in marriage, family, and child counseling, University of Southern California. Member of the graduate psychology faculty, Pepperdine University. And I've been in private practice, psychotherapy, for more than twelve years.

And I play theological Scrabble at the master level in Hebrew, Latin, and Geek.

BARTLET: Good. I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I had you here.

DR LAURA: As you may know, sir, my viewpoint on biblical matters is drawn from the religious tradition of orthodox rabbinic Judaism. Did I mention that I am immune to the #2 pencil anomaly?

BARTLET: I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, and always clears the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another?

DR LAURA: Mr. President, the Bible doesn't commend slavery. And there is no requirement that you sell your daughter. You could give it a try but you'd risk the wrath of the TWoP Anti-Female Sexism thread. With a second language and general cleanliness, Zoey is good for a slave's wage, err, I mean, minimum wage -- plus tips -- at La Rosa Puzzante.

BARTLET: My Chief of Staff, LeoO McGarry, insists on working on the Sabbath, Exodus 35:2, clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police?

DR LAURA: Rest assured that you, sir, are not morally obligated to execute Mr. McGarry, however, if you decide to take him to the proper authorities please be sure to bring three witnesses, both parties, and elders. But a word of preventative advice: give your COS a break and let him enjoy conjugal "barbeques" on the Sabbath before it's too late for his marriage.

As you know, Mr. President, you don't have the authority to try capital cases. This country has a civil judiciary branch of government. No matter. While "executive insomnia" probably doesn't mean much to you just now, [SPOILER] by Season Four Mr. McGarry's hardwork will pay off and you'll get to put someone to death by calling your own enforcement officers [/SPOILER]. Excuse the self-censorship, sir, that was a national security spoiler.

BARTLET: Here's one that's really important, because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town. Touching the skin of a dead pig makes us unclean, Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point?

DR LAURA: Even if the footballs were made of pigskin, they aren't food. But if you were to swallow a football, it still wouldn't make you unclean. Although I think it might be a bit tough to pass (pun intended). Besides, the big leagues play with footballs made of cowhide and cows are kosher. Same goes for vynil. Both are as innocuous as your pigskin wallet. So playing football is not considered a sin, unlike the other thing.

There's an old rabbinic statement that might help with your implied complaint:
A person shouldn't say, "I really can't stand pork." It's better to say, "I would really, really, really like to indulge in some. But my Father in heaven has declared it to be forbidden."

BARTLET: Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother, John, for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads?

DR LAURA: Well, sir, your brother can thank God that Leviticus 19:19 has never provided for that sort of punishment for gardeners. On the other hand, if John doesn't grow his own weed, he might want to go to Canada to get legally stoned.

As for your mom's fashion sense, the Bible does provide for a proportional response. If a sanction was deserved, the hip Fashion Court could set aflame the First Mom's wardrobe high atop the altar of modernity. Or your Mom could have a postmodern garage sale.

Sometimes you just have to be cruel to be kind. [Sotto voce] Let's hope she doesn't have a special relationship with her shoes. [/Sotto voce]

BARTLET: One last thing. While you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tightass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits.

DR LAURA: [Blink] With all due respect, Mr. President, you are one of the most prominent Catholics in this country. Why do you pose as a petty legalist? Picking and choosing from scripture out of context, twisting the facts, giving yourself permission to rudely take a run at someone whose religious views differ from your own? As a good host, you won't mind me reminding you, sir, that, in our country and in this White House, the President doesn't get to replay the Inquisition.

Now, while you stand there in your wrongness, and I sit here on my size nine derriere, please accept this, the last crab puff in the room. It's "New England" crab and I've saved it just for you. Sit. Enjoy.
