So I posted a comment at one of the gay websites I visited in researching the post I made yesterday about the GLAAD poll showing a decline in gay acceptance in America.
I said over there very much the same thing I said here, i.e., Trump isn’t a cause but a symptom. When the public face of the LBGT community became censorious, progressive scolds who seems to enjoy sticking their thumb in the eye of moderate Middle America, there was push back. That push back was part of Trump’s appeal.
Fewer young women are calling themselves “feminists” because that word has become associated with shrieking, blue hair harpies, who wear vagina costumes in public and cry about “the patriarchy.” They don’t want to be associated with that.
If the LGBT community goes down the path where “LGBT” becomes inexorable associated with the worst sort of anti-social debauchery and crybullying over preferred pronouns, it will be rejected as well.
In a nutshell, I don’t care who you have sex with – as long as they are consenting adults – but I hate a radical leftist.
The Onion did a story 17 years ago that is as spot on today as it ever was, “Gay-Pride Parade Sets Mainstream Acceptance Of Gays Back 50 Years.”
In a rush to prove my point, I was called a homophobe, transphobe, Nazi, fascist, white supremacist/nationalist, and and FOX News watching bigot.
I brought up the problem of Brendan Eich, the co-founder of Mozilla who was fired after a couple of days as CEO for making a $1,000 donation to Prop 8. My point was that there was no evidence that he discriminated in the office. He simply donated money to a political cause he agreed with, based on his Catholic faith. Both his right to donate and his faith are protected by the First Amendment.
The response was that those protections don’t apply to the private sector (true, but still a matter of principle) and that he deserved what he got for his hateful behavior.
To which I said “Being a good Catholic that believes in Catholic doctrine.”
The answer was “Yes.”
This went around and what it came down to is that any Christian or Jew, and theoretically Muslim (but you know how progressives bend the knee to them) who believes that marriage should exist between one man and one woman should be fired for being hateful.
That technically it is illegal to discriminate against someone because of their religion is not an issue, they are not firing you for being a Christian or a Jew, just for believing in ALL the tenants of the faith. You can still work, if you renounce your religious belief in the sin of homosexuality.
This is of course regardless of whether or not you actually did anything discriminatory, it’s simply the thought crime of your beliefs.
Some pigs are more equal than others.
And they wonder why mainstream America is becoming less accepting of gays.
