Forget marriage. It is the wrong issue at the wrong time. Also, it isn’t quite clear to me anyway why the gay activists have put the line in the sand on marriage and declared it “the ultimate gay civil right.”
No. As a number of commenters have said the past day or so, there are many ways to protect you and your partner’s relationship without conquering this titanic struggle over “marriage.” Frankly, I’m wondering if “marriage” has more to do with the Human Rights Campaign raising more money with a sexy issue than anything else? Sorry, they are a bunch of money grubbing cocktail clinking elitists.
But back to my true point…. the REAL gay civil right, my friends, is protection of gays and lesbians in the workplace. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness cannot be accomplished if you are harassed or never hired because you are gay. And that is where our sole focus should be, not riding full-speed against the Marriage Windmills.
And in the true spectrum of this gay civil rights struggle…. job discrimination…. there is progress.
Now, I will first admit I saw both of these items in an email from the HRC.
Washington State House Passes Gay Non-Discrimination Bill – Seattle Times
Montana State Senate Passes Bill Barring Bias Against Gays, Lesbians – Great Falls Tribune
But there is a reason why you don’t hear about job discrimination as much as marriage from HRC or the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and others. First, because there is actual progress going on and that goes against the Gay Left’s Victimization Campaign — everyone is against us.
And second, because the Gay Left’s interests are not yours. They are anti-capitalistic, pro-abortion, anti-War on Terror, and anti-religion. Their interests are to raise more money and cast all Republicans as evil concentration camps builders.
So don’t listen to The Advocate and your local shrill gay newspaper when they tell you about all this darned oppression and moving backwards in time to the stone ages. Dig deeper. Ask yourself why the Gay Borg want you to think the way they do… and then look at your wallet and you will know the answer.
Ending gay/lesbian job discrimination is the true gay civil rights struggle we could be winning. But your leaders are abandoning you in the name of marriage.
