Radical homosexuals believe their rights trump everyone else’s.
“The gay rights movement is winning, particularly with regard to same sex marriage, with a speed and breadth that simply takes your breath away. In Oklahoma, in Utah, and elsewhere. Yet, unsatisfied with victory, they seem to want to stamp out and punish people for their previous views….“The people advocating full disclosure of campaign contribution say, “we just want voters to make an informed choice.” That’s not what they’re doing at all. They really want to enable themselves to mount punitive campaigns and deter people and to chill political speech.”
From Todd Starnes at Fox News.
As we enter this golden age of tolerance and diversity, the nation’s gay rights community is sending a warning message to Americans: If you don’t support gay marriage, you don’t deserve a job.
Apparently, Brendan Eich did not get that message. He’s the former chief executive officer at Mozilla, the technology group that gave us the Firefox Web browser.
Eich resigned under a firestorm of controversy after it was revealed he had donated $1,000 in support of California’s Proposition 8, a ballot initiative that protected traditional marriage.
It’s unclear who outed Eich. But that really doesn’t matter. Once his donation was revealed, supporters of gay marriage launched all-out war.
The Wall Street Journal reported that OKCupid, the popular online dating website, asked its followers to stop using Firefox. The wireless company Credo Mobile gathered more than 50,000 signatures on a petition calling for Eich to resign.
……“Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it,” Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker wrote in a statement.
“We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves.”
She went on to opine about freedom of speech and equality. In her estimation, one trumps the other.
“Equality is necessary for meaningful speech,” she wrote. “And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”
No, not really, Ms. Baker. Our Founding Fathers sort of worked that out in the Bill of Rights.
……The left does not believe people who oppose gay marriage should be allowed to engage in the democratic process. And they have a proven track record of intimidating and bullying those who do.
Just ask Angela McCaskill, the chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University. She was suspended after she signed a petition in her church to put a gay marriage referendum on the ballot in Maryland.
Just ask Scott Eckern, the former artistic director of California Musical Theatre. He resigned under pressure after he gave money to support Prop 8. As one activist told The New York Times, “I do believe there comes a time when you cannot sit back and accept what I think is the most dangerous form of bigotry.”
Just ask our nation’s top military officials. They were called into Obama’s office and told that if they could not support “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” they should resign their commissions.
“We were called into the Oval Office and Obama looked at all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do,’” said Coast Guard Adm. Robert Papp in remarks reported by Buzzfeed.
……I trust there are rational and reasonable individuals within the gay rights community who understand the dangers of stifling free speech and expression. But the voices that are winning the day are those who believe gay rights trump everyone else’s rights.
I know this may sound old-fashioned, but gainful employment should not be determined by where you put your reproductive organs.
Tolerance is a bitch, ain’t it?
Anyone can also ask Aaron Klein, owner of Sweet Cakes by Melissa in Gresham, Oregon. After he politely refused to make a gay wedding cake, citing his religious beliefs, he was bombarded with death threats and hounded in social media. After months of litigation, he decided to close up the business and move it to his home.
Brendan Eich should have told them to go to hell. He’s just as entitled as anyone else to donate to the causes and candidates he supports. The LeftProgs and gays do it, and then dare anyone to object.
The armed service chiefs should have had the guts to tell Obama to shove it and resign. It would have clearly demonstrated Obama’s disconnect with the military and it would have shown solidarity. A mass resignation by key leaders would cause a political earthquake of gigantic proportions and make the public realize just how fucked up this gay mob really is.
The entire “gay rights” crap has gone from being a private matter between consenting adults to an in-your-face freak show.
If they want to get their panties in a wad, they should start picketing and protesting against every muzzie organization in the country. Islam isn’t exactly tolerant of homosexuals.
The hypocrites on the left end of the political spectrum engage in behavior that says more about their bigotry than the debate over a wedding cake.
