There is a group that is called “Wipe Out Homophobia” and they have a Facebook page. And they have over 400,000 likes. And they talk about love and tolerance. But think about the title of the group – it’s all about intolerance.
Look them up. I don’t want to link to them. Look them up and think about it. Homophobia is a thought, an attitude, that these people will not tolerate. If you do not believe in gay marriage, for example, you are not entitled to your views – you need to be wiped out.
It’s time that people who are for traditional marriage realize the intolerance that is simmering with these gay rights activists, because the end goal is not to have gay marriage recognized – the end goal is to eliminate any speech or even thought that is in any way disapproving of the gay lifestyle. A while back I commented on a sign that St. Francis Xavier Church in Acushnet, Massachusetts had put up that said “Two men are friends, not spouses.” A “tolerant” gay rights activist taped a sign on the nearby fence saying “Spread LOVE, not hate.” But her intolerance was “outed” in a blog post explaining her sign. She wrote, “I will not tolerate this behavior in my community. . .” Many people, me included, saw no hate in the original church sign – it was merely an expression of an opinion about traditional definitions of words. But protests against the views of the church quickly turned violent, and the church ended up requesting police protection when someone called and threatened to burn the church down. Well, if you’re going to wipe out homophobia, you are going to do things like that, now, aren’t you? You see, gay marriage is legal in Massachusetts, so gay rights people are up to the next step in “wiping out” what they call homophobia – burning churches and the like.
You can pick up all kinds of stories about this all over. There was a little news item in the New York Post last month “outing” more intolerance from the gay marriage movement in California. Boxer Manny Pacquiao was being interviewed and happened to express his opposition to gay marriage. Whereupon Rick Caruso, who owns a mall in LA, tweeted that Manny Pacquiao, because of his views, was not welcome at the mall. Well, the ban didn’t look good. Someone pointed out that actually a majority of California voters shared the same opinion, so the ban was retracted. But when they can get away with it, they will be back with all the fury of their intolerance.
And more people are recognizing the intolerance behind the push for changing the definition of marriage. I noticed a blog for the Speak Up Movement, a movement to defend religious liberty. They had a post recently about the intolerance of pro-gay-marriage advocates. People are waking up to this.
Yes, you need to understand where this is going. If gay marriage is legalized all across this country, it will get uglier and uglier.
