So, what have we learned from this? Pretty much nothing we didn’t know already.
1. Gay people have come off looking like self-centered, lying jerks. Brutally honest here: If your attitude is “My special day will be rueeeeened unless I can force someone who doesn’t want to be there to participate,” that’s messed up and you’re a self-centered jerk. Healthy, well-adjusted people do not think that way; messed up jerks think that way.
Also, when gay activists claimed they wouldn’t force Christians to participate in gay marriages, they were obviously lying. Now, of course, they are back-pedaling, “We only meant churches and clergy wouldn’t be forced to participate.” Saying you have freedom of religion only within your church is like saying you only have freedom of speech in your living room. This once again demonstrates that the people who whine the loudest about “I don’t want other people forcing their values on me,” are the people most eager to force their values on everybody else.
Also, the gay activist left won again by being obnoxious. This does not mean they will become less obnoxious in the future.
2. The Media are a bunch of self-centered lying jerks. SB 1026 was a minor clarification to an existing law, and most certainly not a “turn away the gays” bill, but the lying liars in the MFM were only too happy to characterize it that way. They are as anti-Christian as the gay left, and made the most of another opportunity to sow rancor and social division at the expense of truth.
3. Politicians are cowardly and craven. Ace described Governor Jan Brewer as a “doltish weathervane.” I choose not to dispute that characterization.
