Gay Marriage and the Secular Inquisition

From the Federalist, gay marriage as a tool for subjugation of the individual to the state.

The theory behind gay marriage, in short, was the theory behind the entire secular left: society and the state are the all-powerful forces on which the life of the individual depends, and the most important political task—indeed, the most important task in life—is getting this irresistible power on your side. Once you gain social and political power, you hold on to it by making your preferred views mandatory, a catechism everyone must affirm, while suppressing all heretical views. In this case, to gain social acceptance of homosexuality, you make the affirmation of gay marriages mandatory while officially suppressing any dissenting religious views.

Exactly so. There is no reason to force ordained ministers to perform gay weddings, no reason to force bakers to provide cakes for gay weddings, no reason to force florists and photographers to participate in gay weddings… except to enforce the idea that individual must bow to whoever wields the power of the state.

If Christians Can Be Forced to Bake Cakes for Gay People…

Can gay pagans be forced to hire Christians?

A graduate from Trinity Western University says that a hiring manager for Canada’s North for Amaruk Wilderness Corp. informed her that her application for an internship at the company was rejected because of her Christian beliefs and education at a Christian university.

In her complaint to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, Bethany Paquette provided a series of discriminatory emails from executives at Amaruk.One of the emails was from hiring manager Olaf Amundsen, who told Paquette that she did not meet the minimum requirements to be a guide. He then callously added:

Additionally, considering you were involved with Trinity Western University, I should mention that, unlike Trinity Western University, we embrace diversity, and the right of people to sleep with or marry whoever they want.

Amundsen explained to Paquette that most of “the guys at the management level” in the Norwegian-owned company believe Christianity is to blame for destroying Norse culture, traditions, and its way of life.

Frankly, I think employers should have a right to employ whomever they want and sell to whomever want. But why would anyone want to work for a bunch of douchebags likes that?

Hermione Granger Lectures Mos Eisley Spaceport on Feminism

The actress who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies dropped in on the world’s premier wretched hive of scum and villainy… the United Nations… to deliver a lecture on feminism and to pester men to become feminists.

It was the kind of speech that the Hollywood left usually describes as “courageous,” meaning it reinforces the prejudices of the Hollywood left and will benefit positively the career of the person giving it. To the Hollywood Left, courage is Tina Fey putting on her Sarah Palin wig and delivering a speech about how gay marriage combats Global Warming.

The text of the speech contains not a word about clitorectomies, honor killings, or Islamic Law and its requirements that a woman produce four witnesses before accusing a man of rape. It was all about First World problems, which is why an actress who has made millions of dollars can complain about income inequality and hurt feelings.

Because the reality is that if we do nothing it will take 75 years, or for me to be nearly a hundred before women can expect to be paid the same as men for the same work.

I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.
When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”
When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

But given the size of that pile of manure, there had to be a pony under it somewhere and here it is.

The more I have spoken about feminism the more I have realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain, it is that this has to stop.

No kidding. as the Feminist Movement is led by women who totally believe stuff like this:

“The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately 10% of the human race.”

 

Gay Groups Drop Support for ENDA Because It Won’t Oppress Christians

Several big name Gay Rights groups — including the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Lambda Legal, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights — have decided to drop support for Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) — because it includes exemptions for religious organizations.

Several major gay rights groups withdrew support Tuesday for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would bolster gay and transgender rights in the workplace, saying they fear that broad religious exemptions included in the current bill might compel private companies to begin citing objections similar to those that prevailed in a U.S. Supreme Court case last week…

If they can’t force church to bow to state, then they’re not interested in ending “workplace discrimination.” (To the extent that it even exists any more, but that’s an aside.)  This tends to validate certain incendiary critics who have argued that the real energy behind the Gay Left (Inc.) isn’t so much the advancement of Teh Gay Rights as it is smashing Christians in the nose at every legal opportunity.

Keeping Up with the Cardassians

guldukat01

Star Trek’s Cardassians were a members of a brutal, authoritarian police-state. The Cardassian character Gul Dukat understood implicitly what many of us have struggled to understand; why the Gay Left isn’t content with winning gay marriage, but also demand that those who oppose gay marriage be forced to participate in gay marriage ceremonies.

Gul Dukat: A true victory is to make your enemy see they were wrong to oppose you in the first place. To force them to acknowledge your greatness.
Weyoun: Then you kill them?
Gul Dukat: …Only if it’s necessary.

["Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sacrifice of Angels (#6.6)" (1997)]

I almost pity organizations like the Boy Scouts for naively thinking they could appease the Gay Left with some  compromises; Totalitarians are not interested in compromises. Neither is the Gay Left.

LGBTQ Readying to Force Christians to Bend to Their Power… Again

So, this transgendered person enrolls in a Christian college, and now demands that the Christian college change its ways to accommodate her/him.

 A male-to-female transgender student has filed a discrimination complaint against his Christian university, claiming the school must allow him to live in men’s dormitories regardless of its theological principles.

Hey, if Christians who consider abortions murder of the unborn can be forced to pay for abortions, if Christians opposed to bgay marriage can be forced to participate in gay marriage ceremonies, then Christians can be forced to violate their principles to accommodate the feelings of transgenderoids as well.

Under Obama, the First Amendment has been effectively rewritten: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, unless homosexuals demand otherwise.”

Another Brill Tweet

 

Even Michelangelo Signorile shows No Self-Awareness

In the comments to V’s post, Even Andrew Sullivan Is Disgusted with the Gay Left, commenter Donny D has kindly pointed us to Signorile’s scoop that proves the Left’s sincerity about rainbows and tolerance:

Dear Andrew Sullivan, ‘Left-Liberal Intolerance’ Did Not Bring Down Mozilla’s CEO…

According to Sullivan, the gay mafia has struck again, destroying [Mozilla ex-CEO Brendan Eich] and bringing him down because he would not conform to its thinking…

But…it wasn’t the Prop 8 contribution, and Eich’s refusal to renounce it, that eventually did Eich in. He was being defended by company executives…Eich only announced he was stepping down after it was revealed late Wednesday that he’d given money to Pat Buchanan’s presidential campaign in 1992, and later to Ron Paul’s campaign…

It all just became too much for Mozilla to bear…It’s about a company based in Northern California that has many progressive employees…

Get it? In Signorile’s world,

  • left-wing progressives *are not* a Mafia that viciously hounds anybody who deviates from their orthodoxy of thought…
  • because left-wing progressives *did not* destroy Eich over his crimethinkful deviation on Prop 8 (a deviation shared by a great many Obama supporters that year, 2008)…
  • rather, left-wing progressives destroyed Eich over his crimethinkful deviations on Ron Paul, and on Pat Buchanan way back in 1992.

Which deviations naturally merit a campaign of personal destruction, making the destruction perfectly understandable within a proper concept of tolerance. (cough)

To be clear, I don’t like what Buchanan stood for in the 1992 campaign, either. But “that was then” and, rather more importantly, I get it that freedom is a 2-way street. “Freedom means freedom for everybody.”

And Signorile’s use of Ron Paul is fascinating. Signorile is saying, in effect, that consistent support for small government and individual liberty (what Paul stands for) is unforgiveable. Boy, I sure am impressed with the Left’s wonderful tolerance for freedom of thought, now.

Even Andrew Sullivan Is Disgusted with the Gay Left

The hounding of Brendan Eich has inspired Andrew Sullivan to direct some disapprobation toward some people who actually deserve it for a  change.

His flaw lies in assuming the progressive left wants a “tolerant and diverse society.” They don’t. Read the responses to his Tweet. Most of them are totally on-board with intolerance and witch-hunts.

The gay left is reveling in their power to ruin anyone whose opinion is not in line with what they consider acceptable. As I said before, they are only going to get more obnoxious.

Nick Adds: Naturally, Mozilla closed comments on their milquetoast post about ‘diversity’ in relation to their decision. (Trackbacks are open, but such a cowardly and pandering move doesn’t deserve the mention, so sorry GP fans, you’ll have to search it out yourself.) How disgusting. I think it was Greg Gutfeld who said (something along the lines of): Diversity is great until you point out any way in which people are different.

Andrew (who I once respected immensely) gets a rare broken-clock nail-on-the-head here. As someone who’s perplexed by the Gay Kommunity’s fascination with marriage (why anybody would actively invite the government to involve itself in his personal relationships is beyond me and the topic of a million other posts I’ve written or at least considered writing, but beside the point…), I find their suppressionist approach is stomach-wrenching in its hypocrisy considering the alleged and self-declared oppression of this subset of society.

The LGBTQ Thought Police claim another victory: Mozilla CEO forced out.

 

Progressive Leftist Mozilla Employees Accuse CEO of Thoughtcrime; Demand Resignation

Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich has a political opinion that employees disagree with. Therefore, he must be punished.

Some employees at Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the Firefox browser, are calling on new CEO Brendan Eich to resign.

Mozilla workers are upset with Eich because he supported Proposition 8 and donated to the politicians who backed it.

Prop 8 was a Californian ballot-proposition banning same-sex marriage. It was officially rejected in February 2012.

Those who have a different opinion than the Progressive Left must be punished… because tolerance.

More leftists run amok

After V’s posts on the progressive, feminist lesbian who stands with the religion that actually oppresses women, and the transsexual who feels that her sex change operation should get her off the hook for murder, I thought I’d throw in a couple more examples.

1) In Michigan, a teachers’ union contract openly discriminates against men, whites, and Christians. From the Ferndale school district’s clause about promotions:

Special consideration shall be given to women and/or minority defined as: Native American, Asian American, Latino, African American and those of the non-Christian faith.

I could note the poor construction, and the apparent ignorance of the fact that many Latinos are part of what progressives would call “white privilege”. But what’s far more disturbing is that teachers – or, a school district – could be so disrespectful of basic American legal, civic and moral principles.

2) There’s more on that bossy left-wing professor who assaulted a pro-life, 16 year old girl last week in Santa Barbara. From the police report:

In essence, Miller-Young told me that she felt “triggered” by the images on the posters…

Miller-Young said that she and others began demanding that the images be taken down. Miller-Young said that the demonstrators refused. At which point, Miller-Young said that she “just grabbed it [the sign] from this girl’s hands.” Asked if there had been a struggle, Miller-Young stated, “I’m stronger so I was able to take the poster.”…

Miller-Young went on to say that because the poster was upsetting…she felt that the [pro-life] activists did not have the right to be there…

I told Miller-Young that I appreciated the fact that she felt traumatized by the [pro-life] imagery but that her response constituted a violation of law…

Miller-Young replied that [the pro-lifers] coming to campus and showing “graphic imagery” [in common areas] was insensitive to the community…

Miller-Young also suggested that the group had violated her rights. I asked Miller-Young what right the group had violated. Miller-Young responded, “My personal right to go to work and not be in harm.”

Miller-Young elaborated that one of the reasons she had felt so alarmed by this imagery is because she is about to have the test for Down Syndrome. Miller-Young said. “I work here, why do they get to intervene in that?”

I explained to Miller-Young that vandalism, battery and robbery had occurred…

Get it? Mireille Miller-Young wants to get off the hook for alleged acts of vandalism, battery and robbery because *her feelers were hurt*.

Miller-Young could potentially have a Down Syndrome baby that she might then want to abort, and how dare anyone take (or publicize) any stance that might make her feel guilt over that? Telling Miller-Young your truth (remember when lefties used to love the idea of everyone ‘telling their truth’?) is now “harm” to her that justifies her use of physical violence.

This looks to me like a classic case of a woman who might have a personality disorder, seeking to control/abuse other people. God bless the sane policeman!


Now for some better items. The Delaware Supreme Court has upheld self-protection rights for residents of public housing. And they were unanimous. Remember, the criminal residents already had guns, so this ruling is a help to the law-abiding residents.

And in California, three Asian-American State senators thankfully blocked an effort to bring back racial discrimination in college admissions, after California voters had rejected it in 1996.

Lesbian Feminist Wears Hijab to Show Solidarity with Militant Islamism

She’s the Minneapolis police chief who “married” one of her female sergeants. (Try doing that in Teheran or Riyadh.) Now, she’s one of several city officials in Minneapolis who wore Islamic Hijabs to show their Solidarity with the people who perform clitorectomies and stone gay people to death.

According to a Facebook post, Somali staffers that work at Minneapolis City Hall declared February 28 “Hijab Day” at City Hall and convinced the police chief and female city council reps to wear hijabs on the job.

Pictures include: Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau (who recently married her favorite female sergeant – not very hijab like), city council members Elizabeth Glidden and Lisa Bender as well as other staffers.

The ACLU, American Atheists, and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State have been silent on the issue of public officials endorsing one religion over others (as best a brief Google search could determine.) The self-loathing nuts at Tikkun are completely on-board.

Hillary Supporters Behind #BanBossy

The Facebook COO and the cabal behind the campaign to make the term “bossy” politically incorrect and socially unacceptable are party of the ‘Ready for Hillary’ coven.

Sandberg is an ally of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. [...]

But why focus the campaign on the word “bossy”?

The answer to that may have something to do with Clinton being called “bossy” during the 2008 campaign by Australian feminist Germaine Greer. Bossy is also more tame than some of the other words Clinton has been called.

Two years ago, Democrats launched a campaign to brand Republicans as engaging in a ”war on women,” a campaign with a lasting impact that will no doubt stretch into the 2016 elections if Clinton runs.

Now the Ban Bossy campaign gives Democrats another weapon to use against those who disagree with Clinton’s policy ideas.

This way, anyone who criticizes Mrs. Clinton for her notoriously imperious, overbearing, domineering, difficult personality can be automatically attacked as “Anti-Woman;” much as all criticism of President Obama is attributed to “racism.” [But rest assured, calling Sarah Palin any crude, insulting name you want will still mark you as one of the Tolerant Enlightened.]

BTW, my good friend Stoaty Weasel has created a very… compelling… poster for Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 campaign. It’s a bit… uncivil… to reproduce it here; but here’s a link if you are feeling uncivil toward Mrs. Clinton.

Harassment, censorship and disease

Michele Bachmann and the Wedding Cake Fascists

Gay dude I know from Teh Facebooks was all panty-wadded because Michele Bachmann said, “In Pursuit Of Denying Religious Liberty, The Gay Community Has ‘Bullied The American People.’” He called her “a stupid woman” for using the term “bullying” to describe the act of using the threat of force to coerce Christians who object to gay marriage to participate in gay weddings.

Dictionary.com provides the following definitions for bully in its noun and verb form.

bullynoun, plural bul·lies.1.a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people. verb bul·lied, bul·ly·ing. 1. to act the bully toward; intimidate; domineer.

Blustery quarrelsome and overbearing certainly apply to gay activists; take a look at any any protest where gay activists are involved. Habitually badgering or intimidating smaller or weaker people? That cuts to heart of exactly what the activists are doing, badgering and intimidating Christian bakers, florists, and photographers into servitude; the threat of jail and lawsuits for refusing to comply is very intimidating, and Christians are at a distinct legal and cultural disadvantage because of the dominant position of secularists and anti-Christians in the media and political culture. And inasmuch as there are always alternative providers for the services the militant ays are demanding, forcing unwilling people to participate is domineering behavior.

If you want to say the word “bully” is ridiculously overused, you will get no argument from me. But the dictionary seems to be on Mrs. Bachmann’s side, at least. The lines between bullying and activism were erased a long time ago.

New Trail Life scouting group excludes gay kids & they do a “Sieg Heil!” style salute, too. http://t.co/c3UDn1Vfry pic.twitter.com/Vhvlr3wbyY

— Cathy Lynn Grossman (@CLGrossman) March 3, 2014

Trail Life USA disagreed with the policies of the Boy Scouts (specifically, when they changed their policies to accommodate gays and atheists); and instead of whining about it to the media or suing to make the Government impose their will on people they disagreed with, they started a group more to their own liking. Agree with them or not, this type of solution is much less obnoxious and socially divisive than using Big Government to force their will on others.

But the progressive left can’t stand the thought of people living outside the collective and despise the fact that people are allowed to make choices they don’t agree with. And so, it is the people who want to be left alone by the Government whom they call Nazis, and not the people seeking to use Government to force their will on others.

People Who Will Not Be Pitching a Fit Over a Wedding Cake

Submitted for your consideration.

DEAR ABBY: My nephew is getting married next year. I was very excited because I love him and I’m a baker. I had planned on making the groom’s cake as I did for his brother’s and sister’s weddings. The problem is, they have decided on a hunting theme for their wedding — including a camouflage wedding dress for the bride.

Abby, I am an animal-rights activist. I’m against any form of hunting. I am also involved with several animal-protection groups. My nephew and his fiancee know how hard I work for animal rights — just the thought of a hunting theme for a wedding makes me ill.

I don’t even want to attend, let alone make a cake. What can I do so there will be no hurt feelings if I don’t want to attend or participate? — BAKER IN THE MIDWEST

DEAR BAKER: Feeling as strongly as you do about not attending, write the happy couple a warm letter wishing them a lifetime of happiness together and include a nice wedding gift — I’m sure there will be no hurt feelings.

Something tells me the objects of this person’s unhinged ire will just shrug it off and get a cake from somewhere else.

Because it is a violation of human rights for any business to refuse service to any customer (so I am made to understand it) a gay bar in Los Angeles are… um… refusing services to customers on the basis of (respectively) their beliefs and sexual orientation.

…David Cooley, the founder of The Abbey Food & Bar located at 692 North Robertson Blvd., has announced the popular gay bar will add any legislator in any state who votes for “bills to allow for discrimination against LGBT people” to a “Deny Entry List.”…

“…we don’t want your kind here“…

Also, he refuses to host bachelorette parties for straight women. Oddly enough, I don’t hear any Christians complaining about it.
