Sounds like LBGT Progressive Supremacist to me


LOL, I'm giving you a virtual *hug*

Basic logic, fundamental reality, puts the lie to the OP's article. We do not have that kind of power.

Forget that it's basically the ravings of a political extremist. Forget that it's chocked full of outright lies and deceptions.

It's just fundamentally LUDICROUS. There is no united LGBT front. We do not wield that kind of power.

I have a real problem with anyone's speech being limited by legislation. I know the logic behind laws against doing actual harm with words (the old "yelling fire" in a movie theatre) libel, slander, etc. But in all those cases, the damage must be PROVEN in court! I'm sure that the realities of the Canadian tribunals are fundamentally the same.

There is a certain population, however, that wants to abuse their free speech, by intentionally making public statements that are clearly hurtful to others ... for no good reason other than to hurt.

I would sure hate to be in any group that so depends on big government.

All big governments have failed.

There must be a better way?

Sure.

just keep your mouth shut if your opinion differs.

I get it.


No, I didn't say "different", I said intolerant/discriminating.

But that is just my opinion, I have Freedom of Religion, too but I understand my spiritual views should not be forced on others by Law. The religious against gay marriage didn't have the same respect for Freedom of Religion and tried to force their religious views of marriage on gay couples.

Biblical Passages Used to Condemn Interracial Marriage

What God Says About Interracial Marriage

(The latter is a current website still arguing against interracial marriage, and *gasp* utilizes exactly the same arguments (some verbatim) that are used against marriage equality.)

Here's one of my "favorite" quotes from the anti-interracial marriage site ...



It doesn't get any better than that; God was the first racist.


No, the author is not being humorous or ironic.

Is there one single united organization that includes and represents all LGBT everywhere that wields anywhere near the kind of power and influence described in the OP article?

If you answer honestly, I'll give you a virtual *hug* too!

So, the "agenda" is equal rights.
Scary.

Sorry, that should be Christianity is

Like this Tennessee Pastor that will not marry whites to blacks... in 2014

Edited to delete bulk of this post because other people beat me to the punch.

Thank you all for the education.

And while it is not illegal to voice a negative opinion to interracial marriage I hope that negative opinions towards marriage of same-sex individuals remain legal as well.

Free speech isn't free speech if we start taking it apart.

Maybe some harsh examples:

"Jews are money-grubbing and double-dealing."

If I said that, even though it is my heartfelt belief, I'd be a bigot.

"Blacks are lazy and shiftless."

If I said that, even though it is my heartfelt belief, I'd be a bigot.

"Christians are hateful, ignorant, and delusional."

If I said that, even though it is my heartfelt belief, I'd be a bigot.

(Yes, Virginia, that's a bigoted comment, and I've been known to make similar statements. When I did, I was being a bigot. Some of you were right to call me out on it.)

Now ...

"Homosexuals are unnatural and perverted."

If I said that ... well, I'm just stating my opinion you know, based on my heartfelt belief.



Can anyone say that they don't see the irony here?

No, it's not illegal. Nor is it illegal to combat ignorant hate speech with education and criticism.

What is illegal is using religious clout to deny rights to an entire group of citizens and effectively labeling them second class.

Do you believe in an all powerful LGBT lobby that has complete control over every action of the Democratic party, American academia and Hollywood?

Yes or no?
