So, this while Chick-fil-A thing made me start thinking a couple of points.

  1. The Hypocrisy of the LGBT Community is truly a sight to behold
  2. The LGBT Community really isn't quite the unseen masses they proport to be.


To this point, I note the "outrage" that was posted everywhere about the intolerant religious right when they threatened boycotts of Kraft Foods and more specifically the Oreo brand.

Now we all knew that this would never happend because those toothless mobs need to feed on deep-fried Oreos at the local county fairs and NASCAR races, but none the less - we were all blugened to death with the outrage and condecention on these people for threatening to not purchase a food product because of the very public, very intentional PUBLIC FACEBOOK POSTING IN SUPPORT OF GAY PRIDE.

Now mind you - this was Oreo bringing the heat on themselves. They posted a picture on their facebook Fan Page knowing full well it would illicit reactions from consumers - many of whom would not share their views.

-----------------------------------

Contrast this with the the president of Chick-fil-A who was interviewed by a Baptist website and in that interview affirmed his support for the traditional confines of marriage and his non-support for gay marriage.

Now, Chick-fil-A didn't post on their facebook page, their TV ads, the newspaper, or even a tweet anything about not supporting gay marriage. They answered questions in an interview to a FREAKING CHURCH...

But that didn't stop the stampede from jumping all over them and attempting a boycott, protests, and for some GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS TO BLOCK CHICK-FIL-A FROM OPERATING IN THEIR JURISDICTIONS!?!?!?

-----------------------------------

So lets compare and contrast this

Oreo makes an intentionally public announcement of supporting Gay Pride - Chick-Fil-A made comments in non-secular interview for a church website.

Oreo suffered 20,000 facebook comments and probably some dirty looks from rednecks as they ate their cookies. Chick-Fil-A has been threatened with governmental interference in their legal rights to do business within certain cities because the presiding officials of those cities dont agree with their Constitutional right to free speech.

Rednecks are intolerant fools for disagreeing with Oreo - but the LGBT is setting the example for tolerance in their reaction to comments made in an interview to a church...

Yep - pretty sure this hypocrisy defined.

-----------------------------------------

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

The reaction to the LGBT community's plans for Chick-Fil-A couldn't have more clear in that - unlike what they'd have you believe - there really are not that many closet/quiet/suppressed gays running all over America just that were so offended.

In fact, Chick-Fil-A had RECORD SALES AND LONG LINES that literally caused some stores to close early because they were out of food.

Yet the great "Kiss-In" that was planned WAS AN EPIC FAIL no matter how you try to spin it.

This points to something VERY VERY fundamental and true about the world, and America specifically:

There are a great many people that consider themselves Gay. There are many who are gay but are not "out" yet. But in no way should any of us believe, even for a second, that the population percentages of strait v/s gay is even fractionally measurable.

Bottom line is the LGBT community is a minority, it is not going to "grow" as other minorities often do because it's not an immigration issue. There are not millions of latent gays just waiting for their big chance - the mass hysteria that goes on concerning this is nothing more than good ratings and political ammo.

*** DISCLAIMER: I really could care less about civil unions or state marriages (legal marriages) between gay couples. I'm a Christian, but I look at this issue as a "Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's, give unto the Lord what is the Lord's". I know some feel that it will destroy the moral fabric of America - I think gay people getting insurance together is the least of our "moral fabric" worries.

If Equal Rights is an agenda. Currently - - Equal Right of Legal Government Marriage.

Count me in 100%.

Be alert to anti-gay hate groups trying to claim they are victims.

For as long as mankind has existed, there so has existed opposing ideals.

For years now I have witnessed a social epoch of epic proportions, unlike I have ever seen before. Political correctness is now the driving force of not only government, but most businesses.

Our society is becoming a society of whiners, and infantile children who get their feelings hurt way to easily.

Unfortunately for the stronger members of society, certain ears lean more towards minority opinion, and their backbone crumbles in their presence.

There will always be different ideas regarding every topic that exists in the minds of men.

The only proven way to keep the peace is for the majority to have their way, while the minority to be silenced.

The main stream media tries to force feed political correctness and fair play for all, down the throats of every individual.

Unfortunately the world is not fair. The laws of nature should be upheld: the strong survive – at least in social and political standpoints. Should this natural social structure fail, surly anarchy and unrest will follow.

In short: people need to stop whining. The majority should be spoken for, while the concerns of the few squelched.

I am not talking about just the polotical stance of America. I am talking about the laws of nature, and natural selection.

Look around: do you see America becomming more ordered, or more chaotic?

The natural order is being removed, and the new order forced upon us when we are not mentally ready for it.

Have no idea what you are talking about.

However - - I think humans are progressing as they should - - - putting intellect as the top priority.

Actually Annee... I never thought I'd say it - but damn if I don't agree with you. Majority rule is not something I subscribe to. While I agree that sacrificing the rights and liberties of the many for the luxuries and comfort of the few is garbage political pandering - I don't agree that the minorities simply of to suck it up because they're the minority.

That's essentially the premise that this nation was founded on. We are not a Democracy (mob rule), we are a Representative Republic that gives everyone a voice. My problem is that too often the current popular cultural fad seems to forget that EVERYONE gets a voice, not just them.

Interesting premise, but I would propose that the fabric of America is being torn asunder in far greater ways that Gay Marriage. Homosexuality has always existed and always will - condemned or embraced doesn't matter.

The real problem with America is the removal of the family unit and the pillars of trust in one's elected officials being shaken every day by another act of cowardice or self-interest.

Chick-fil-A makes chicken sandwiches... they're not quite the "hate group" you're attempting to confer upon them.

LGBTQ - - are just people. They are not a group think. They are not a fad. They get up - go to work. Some are professionals - athletes - ministers - actors - etc.

They want Legal Equal Rights - - Period! That's it.

How does it affect your life if they have Equal Rights? It doesn't.

It has nothing to do with the business or belief.

Its about the 5 million dollars Mr. Cathy donated to groups officially designated as anti-gay hate groups.

Anne I think the main argument with people who are against homosexual unions, etc. Is that they feel it is a moral and ethical issue.

I don't think the argument has anything to do with equality.

I agree with you that the family life is being torn apart. I think that is a main issue with it. Which is the indirect route I was taking with my natural order comment.

Nature intended things to work a certain way, and the further we go from that natural way the worse it will become.

Really? You think? Call your local food bank or shelter, ask them who volunteers the most...

I think you may want to get some hot sauce for that crow you'll have to eat.

Churches do 95% of the volunteer work at places like that. In fact, if you do some research, you'll find that churches or other faith based organizations simply give more to charity.

Here is a link to one study - not the end-all-be-all, but a start. Report

Quibbling point of clarification - the US is actually a constitutional republic operating via representative democracy, tempering majority rule with individual rights and liberties protected (well...supposed to be protected) by law.

Carry on!

It doesn't, but the label "LGBT" is used to confer an agenda based movement that assumes to speak for a segment of society. Just like "Republicans" or "Democrats" are people, but there is a larger "party" that assumes to speak for them.

I have no problem with equal rights, but other than being able to get married... what exactly is it that the LGBT (I have no clue wtf the Q is for now) does not have the "right" to do that every other American has?

They can adopt, they can get married in some places (not all yet, but it wont be too long now), and *gasp* they can even drive cars!!!

Seriously - this issue came over a guy asked about his religious views on a subject. Nobody asked him to make laws, he's not an elected official.

Here's what I think - I think the LGBT community has this enormous chip on their shoulder and they see intolerance and injustice around every corner - so much that they feel they need to jam their agenda down people's throats.

Have you not noticed the enormous uptick in "Gays" on TV lately? It reminds me of the early 80's when there were suddenly a bunch of "Black" TV shows on prime time. It's the old song and dance of preying on strait white people's fear of being labeled "racists" or "intolerant" so they'll literally RUN to embrace anything gay just to show they're not bigots.

Other than the minor stuff that comes along with being married, Gays are not discriminated against. Hell, it's not even a frog's breath close to what the Blacks went through during the days of segregation and the civil rights era - yet the LGBT community is trying to portray every minor issue as some epic battle for equality.

Squeaky wheel syndrome?

And I agree with you. My hubby says the break down of America is the elimination of the Front Porch.

Back in the 50s - - when government spoke - - people jumped and said: "Yes Sir". Do you honestly believe that is good?

You talk about families. Why do you think the LGBTQ wants Legal Marriage Rights? People that believe strongly in family should be supporting them - - not fighting against them.

Whole families used to live in tiny houses with one bathroom. Now everyone has their own room and live separate lives within the family. Remember when you had to share a TV?

None of that has anything to do with a minority group wanting Equal Rights.
