“Marriage equality” is their hypocritical rallying cry. But the cat has been out of the bag for a long time, and everyone is fast beginning to realize that this is the most ridiculous thing they’ve ever heard. It’s nothing more than a godless demand for unrestricted debauchery. What they really want is not equality, but absolute cultural dominance. Their unmasked agenda involves the implementation of an oppressive double standard in which their “gay” Special Rights invariably squash our all-important Civil Rights. It’s the “gay” way or the highway.
The institution of marriage is the inimitable edifice and social load bearing wall upon which any free nation and stable civil government must certainly be established. However, in their anti-Christ crusade to destroy, devalue and desecrate the foundational structure of the family, the homosexual juggernaut is rapidly augmenting their Leftist arsenal through a menacing cache of lawless judicial rulings and the ostensibly named anti-discrimination ordinances. Through these and other Statist strong-arm tactics, their wrecking ball strategy has succeeded by compelling silence, intimidating dissent and purging the country of every voice of reason. The very rights they claim to be fighting for are ironically the exact same legal protections that they ruthlessly strive to strip away from the people of faith and decency – or anyone else who might dare to disagree with the endorsement of their lascivious lifestyle. The Baal of homosexuality is a viscerally hateful and jealous god.
The militant homosexual efforts have alarmingly functioned as the caustic social acid that eats away and erodes every constitutionally-protected freedom we have ever held near and dear to our hearts. The pro-deviancy advocates claim to merely carry the mantle of freedom, but in their wake, they leave the republic ravaged and in ruins. If they have their way, the landscape of liberty will be left desolate. Satan’s compliant foot soldiers for the cause of counterfeit marriage will never stop sadistically trampling the principles of self-governance, the First Amendment and the will of the people under their feet. The examples abound, and in the cases that follow, a clear distinction will be made between the legal clamps being put on Christians and a corresponding partiality for homosexuals in similar circumstances.
Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, a 30-year veteran of the department, was terribly heartbroken when he learned that he had been terminated because – on his own personal time – he self-published a Bible study entitled Who Told You That You Were Naked? for use by his church’s men’s group. Despite obtaining permission from the city’s ethics department, Mayor Kasim Reed fired Cochran due to the fact that homosexuality is accurately described as a “sexual perversion” on only a small portion of one page in the 160-page book.
So, Christian firefighters can be prohibited from expressing their faith even when writing church Bible studies in order to avoid upsetting one of the eagerly-offended types, but the LGBT crowd can unapologetically impose their aberrant ways on others all day long. Tolerance is now a one way street, especially when you’re required to march in “gay” pride parades. A Rhode Island Supreme Court judge, for example, very recently ruled against two Roman Catholic firefighters, Stephen Deninno and Theodore Fabrizio, stating that Christian firefighters can be forced to drive a fire truck along a “gay” pride parade route against their conscience as a “legitimate work assignment.”
Four San Diego firefighters, all of them Christians, were similarly ordered by their department to participate in the city’s 2007 “gay” pride parade by their overtly confrontational lesbian Fire Chief Tracy Jarman. Instead of recognizing their concerns, the city informed them that if they did not follow orders, they would face disciplinary action. Therefore, they marched and were made to witness an array of lewd and morally offensive behavior.
If that doesn’t light a fire under the people of faith…
Michael Marcavage was a 19-year-old Christian junior at Temple University in the fall of 1999, when he discovered that the school’s theater department would be performing the blasphemous play Corpus Christi on campus. This disgusting drama depicts Jesus as a homosexual living in Texas during the 1950s who has sex with his disciples, and was crucified for being “king of the queers.” Fearing that a protest might lead to conflict, Marcavage chose what he thought would be a less provocative course of action. He asked for and received permission to stage a Christian alternative for the student community by staging his own play depicting the life of Christ, called Final Destiny. However, the university reneged on their promise at the last moment and refused to allow the event.
Following what he considered to be a respectful meeting with school officials to discuss the cancellation, Marcavage found himself being physically manhandled and detained until the university police arrived to take him away in handcuffs like a common criminal. He was taken to the Emergency Crisis Center at Temple University Hospital where he was involuntarily committed for a psychiatric observation and evaluation. The junior was examined at the crisis center by Dr. Jose Villaluz, who noted in his written report that Marcavage was “not in need of involuntary treatment” and ordered the student’s release after three hours in detention. Dr. Denise Walton, a Temple University staff psychologist, concurred with Villaluz’s assessment. Attorney Brian Fahling, who handled Marcavage’s case, said, “This kid is as solid as a rock. Besides being a college student on the Dean’s List, Michael was a White House intern with security clearance, is founder and president of a ministry called Protect the Children, president of his own business, and a volunteer who has worked with Campus Crusade for Christ and gone oversees with Feed the Children. This is a good Christian kid who wanted to stand up for Jesus, and instead was handcuffed and dragged to a mental hospital as if he’d been seeing pink elephants.”
On the politically correct college campuses of America, Christians are often forbidden from expressing their faith, but an avalanche of homosexual propaganda is crammed down the throats of those with a differing viewpoint. In 2006, Crystal Dixon, Associate Vice President of Human Resources at the University of Toledo, was fired by the institution for writing an op-ed article for the Toledo Free Press. Dixon, a black woman, wrote her article in response to an earlier piece by Michael Miller who equated homosexual activism with the earlier struggle for African-American Civil Rights. Dixon dared to disagree with Mr. Miller’s assertions, and for this, she was soon thereafter dismissed from her position, and despite years of legal wrangling, she never received her job back.
In 2010, Jennifer Keeton was told by Augusta State University in Georgia that she would have to change her Christian beliefs or be jackbooted from the school’s graduate counseling program. She had been enrolled in the School Counselor Master’s Degree program since 2009. When she expressed her Christian beliefs in class discussions and written assignments, Keeton was required to participate in a “Remediation Plan,” which included workshops on diversity sensitivity training, attendance at events such as the “gay” pride parade in Augusta, and additional reading/writing on the topic of improved counseling effectiveness with LGBT populations. When she refused, the Alliance Defense Fund filed suit against the school, but in June 2012, Judge J. Randal Hall of the Southern District of Georgia ruled against her.
On October 5, 2010, Gillian John-Charles attended the third class meeting of her ethics course (ELOC 680) taught by Professor Gregory M. Hauser at Roosevelt University in Chicago. When she simply disagreed with her professor about homosexuals being “born gay,” incredibly, she was expelled from the school’s Education doctoral program. The university had not a single qualm with disregarding all of her previous years of academic endeavor and sabotaging her dreams.
If that doesn’t earn a “degree” of outrage…
Marriage vendors (florists, photographers, bakers, printers, and reception hall owners), who have sincerely-held religious or conscience objections that prevent them from participating in or endorsing faux “gay marriage” events, are targeted for personal and professional destruction. They are mercilessly saddled with hefty fines, victimized by the coordinated attacks and death threats of “tolerant” homosexual lynch mobs, forced to attend sensitivity training, demonized by the fierce backlash from an LGBT-collaborative media and coerced to violate their beliefs. Capitulation is not optional. We’re told it’s the profane price of doing business in a growing number of “Constitution Free Zones” popping up all across our country. These Christian business owners face serious consequences for their refusal to submit to the gross mutation and mockery of marriage. Their livelihood is literally placed in peril and some individuals may also face incarceration if they continue their defiance of the emerging homo-terrorist tyranny.
However, when Theodore Shoebat, the Communications Director for Rescue Christians, called 13 pro-“gay” bakers in California and asked them if they would bake a cake for a pro-traditional marriage rally with the words, “gay marriage is wrong” on top, they all emphatically refused. Some even hurled insults, spewed profanity or slammed the phone down on him.
Also, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez’ was dropped by her “gay” hairdresser because she has taken a public stand for traditional marriage. The New York Daily News reported that Antonio Darden “told a local news station that he cut the governor’s hair three times, but won’t do it again as long as she continues to oppose gay marriage.” The same rules simply do not apply to the homosexual elitists. Their bigoted hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Christians respect and defend the constitutional right of homosexual or pro-“gay” businesses to refuse service, but we only wish that the same courtesy would be afforded to us as well. Apparently, homosexuals are a “protected class” that essentially operates above the law.
If that doesn’t take the cake…
Government leverage is being utilized to persecute and prosecute Christians, and that is especially the case in the military. Senior Master Sgt. Phillip Monk of the 326th Training Squadron was stationed at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Monk, who is a Christian, had served in the U.S. Air Force for 19 years with a spotless service record, but on July 25, 2013, he was ordered by his lesbian commander, Maj. Elisa Valenzuela, to lie and express his support for gay marriage. When Monk refused, he became another casualty in the LGBT war against Christianity. He was relieved of duty and the Air Force initiated a criminal investigation with the threat of a court martial.
On other hand, homosexual service members are given free rein to flaunt their deviancy. During a formal ball at Fort Drum, New York on the night of April 14, 2012, Lt. Col. Christopher Downey, who was once assigned to the White House and completed tours of duty in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, approached two lesbian officers, a second lieutenant and a captain, about their inappropriate conduct on the dance floor.
A warrant officer initially approached LTC. Downey and complained about the lesbian pair’s prolonged French kissing, buttocks grabbing and disrobing which violated military rules regarding excessive displays of public affection while in uniform on base. For merely upholding basic military guidelines as required, the Army threw LTC. Downey under the bus and moved to discharge the decorated combat pilot who gave 24 years of distinguished service for the country he loves. That’s quite a rude welcome to the twisted Brave New World of homosexual hegemony.
In another instance of homosexuals gone wild, six gay, lesbian and straight service members held a salacious drag queen spectacle at Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa, Japan early last year. Donning wigs and makeup, they suggestively gyrated while lip syncing to music. So, the homosexuals can prance around and do or say whatever they want with impunity. But now that the LGB, and maybe the T, types are permitted to serve openly in the military, the Christians are being drummed out of the armed forces.
If that doesn’t carpet bomb all common sense…
Despite an already overwhelming onslaught of pro-homosexual programming, the hypersensitive advocacy group GLAAD tracks and unrelentingly exerts pressure to increase the number of LGBT characters and themes in movies, television and the media. They promote efforts to inundate the general public with their shameless distortions of sodomy as a legitimate lifestyle choice. In my opinion, however, if someone actually wants to be exposed to such sordid behavior, they should consider serving time in the state pen.
GLAAD’s “inclusive” objectives abruptly end, though, with flooding the airwaves with sin-saturated content. Even the slightest deviation from the approved gay-affirming format is deemed un-American and subject to career-ending repercussions. As the arrogantly self-appointed media censors, GLAAD aggressively engages in the arm-twisting of executives at networks such as TLC, instigating petition drives and attempting to bully the channel into pulling programs such as 19 Kids and Counting and My Husband’s Not Gay. These shows are ridiculously labeled as dangerous and slandered as encouraging the harm of LGBT individuals. And of course, who can forget their failed efforts in late 2013 to rip the family patriarch Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty? GLAAD later went apoplectic and nearly blew a gasket when A & E wisely decided to reverse their initial decision and reinstated Phil on the popular series.
If that doesn’t make you “MAAD!”
If nothing is done to derail the greatest modern threat to democracy, the dagger of “progressivism” will ultimately extinguish the last tortured gasps of a great nation that currently finds itself in the throes of suicidal decline. Unwavering resistance of these homo-pathological thugs is imperative or America will undoubtedly become nothing more than just another cautionary footnote in the annals of history, like every other world power before us that recklessly rushed headlong into decadence.
The abandonment of God and all moral restraint invariably leads to cultural implosion.
There are no exceptions.
