…and, for that matter, like most big Liberal groups and organizations.
If someone disagrees with them, or seems to threaten them in any way, they try to (and sometimes do) destroy them. They can’t simply write an op-ed in the New York Times or Washington Post. No, they undertake boycott campaigns against businesses which deny their services to same-sex “weddings” [see, Arlene’s Flowers and Memories Pizza]. They put up Facebook pages devoted to such boycotts (yes, there is really a Facebook page entitled Boycott Arlene’s Flowers, which I will not link to). They file lawsuits, the intent of which is to drive out of business Christian small firms like the flower shop, bakery, and photographer who dare to not serve ceremonies which violate their religious beliefs. They drive CEOs of tech companies out of their jobs, for supporting the peoples’ initiative affirming traditional marriage as the norm.
The homosexual activists’ latest target is the Boy Scouts of America. For quite a while, the news has been of the strife within and outside of the BSA, relating to their rules against homosexual male leaders. The homosexual lobby will not be appeased until the Boy Scouts, the majority of whose troops are sponsored by churches, agree to admit homosexual scouts and leaders. Since this would violate the scouts’ pledge to remain “morally straight”, it puts the national and local leadership into quite a bind. One of my fellow Ricochet members put it this way “The BSA fears the anger of the gay lobby more than it fears the anger of its membership and the churches”. Yes, many parts of society these days fear the anger of the homosexual lobby.
Almost as much as people in the Middle East and elsewhere fear the anger of Islamist Terrorists like Islamic State, and Al Quaeda. It is nearly impossible for any Muslim to leave Islam, because that puts a target on their back. Apostates are regularly gunned down or otherwise murdered. When they take over a place, the first thing the Islamic State terrorists do is murder Christians. And, they are HERE, in the USA. I’m betting you didn’t hear of what happened in Jersey City, NJ. Get a load of this story. If you dare to draw cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, this is what happens to you. Or this.
The reason? Homosexuals, Muslims, and Liberals are that first, everything else later. Liberal Jews often disparage the State of Israel, because their Liberal ideology urges them to support the so-called Palestinians over their own people. Homosexuals are homosexual first, even “freedom-lover” later. They are so invested in being thought “normal” that they will attempt to tear down civil society, starting with the institution of Marriage, moving on to the Boy Scouts, and … What’s next? Religion, of course. Muslims demand total obedience from their followers, and murder those who don’t conform. If the world’s great religions teach that homosexual behavior is “an abomination unto the Lord”, well then those religions need to be brought to their knees. And the homosexual lobby has made a good start at that.
The big question is, who will stand up to them? Not the leadership of the Catholic Church in Ireland, which stood by while the population voted overwhelmingly in favor of homosexual “marriage”. Will you have the courage to stand up to the rabid homosexual lobby? Will YOU?
