Not much happiness among the gay
They made sure that Duck Dynasty folks got their comeuppance. They forced a photographer to pay a fine for not wishing to have a GLBT couple as a customer. They have succeeded in ejecting a CEO from Mozilla. But they are not happy until everyone who does not agree with them gives up.
A group that cries for tolerance but which is itself rigidly intolerant of dissent. Hmmmm.... Is that not what the Christians are accused of? It would seem that the gays are not happy at all -- even with their successes. They will be no gaiety in the houses of the GLBT until everyone agrees with them. There are other groups who have acted this way in the past and still but we call them bigots. You can disagree with the GLBT positions but you cannot serve in business, industry, sports, media, or government. In fact disagreeing with the GLBT lobby is grounds for disqualifying nearly everyone from the public square in America. How is it that we call them a minority?
According to Jeffrey Levi, former executive director for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, “We [homosexuals] are no longer seeking just a right to privacy and a right to protection from wrong. We have a right—as heterosexuals have already—to see government and society affirm our lives.” Homosexual author Urvashi Vaid declared, “We have an agenda to create a society in which homosexuality is regarded as healthy, natural, and normal. To me that is the most important agenda item.” Paula Ettelbrick, former legal director of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, stated: “Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex, sexuality, and family, and . . . transforming the very fabric of society. . . . We must keep our eyes on the goals of providing true alternatives to marriage and of radically reordering society’s view of reality.”
