WHO IS BEING HATEFUL?

One of the favorites of the homosexual rights advocates is to compare discrimination against homosexuals with discrimination against Blacks.  Discrimination against homosexual behavior is the same as discriminating against skin color?  Just how far is it reasonable to carry this sort of apples and oranges analogy?  For example, when I eat flesh, I prefer turkey.  Is PETA going to get after me for not eating human flesh?

It would seem the inevitable has happened.  The proponents of California’s Proposition 8 have gone to the courts to overturn that state’s same-sex “marriages” (see here).  At the same time, the state’s top fickle lawyer (Jerry Brown) has changed his mind.  He now advocates overturning Proposition 8 (see here).  This is a strange situation where Brown is asking the state’s Supreme Court to overturn part of the California Constitution.   It does seem that some people really do believe that all is fair in love and war.   🙄

Since this whole issue is about making people accept something they do not want to accept, there is, of course, some anger.  Blacknell is one such place (see here).  MB, Blacknell’s blogger, thinks the advocates of Proposition 8 hateful.  So I left this comment.

Hateful? I do not think so. If the sponsors of Proposition 8 did not ask for those same-sex marriages to be overturned, what would be the point of Proposition 8? Now that would be hateful. It would mean they did not believe in what they are doing.

Instead of belaboring the fact that these people are hateful, why don’t you concentrate on understanding their point-of-view and demonstrating the validity of your own position?

When two people of the opposite sex join their lives together, their children need the security of marriage. When two people of the same sex have sex, is there really such an issue?

Those who want a liberal (using the word as it use to be used) society prefer as few laws a possible. Unneeded laws are for busybodies.

Don’t laws appropriately exist only to protect our rights? Whose rights are protected by same-sex marriages? What is the need to force everyone to acknowledge the supposed sanctity of such unions?

I can understand MB’s anger.  I do not approve of homosexual sex, but hostility towards homosexuals themselves is unChristian.   Nonetheless, MB’s anger does not help.

However, MB’s anger is mild.   What I found at Cobalt06 (here) was so angry it was funny.   Cobalt06 post portrayal of Rick Warren’s video is simply irrational.  The second video (see here) is so extreme the proponents of Proposition 8 will be playing it just to demonstrate the absurdity of the opposition.

Many want to appear to be “with it” and in tune with the times.   So another venue for the homosexual rights crowd is to make fun of the quaint ideas of those who think same-sex sex irresponsible and absurd.  Considering what same-sex sex between two men entails….

Yet another favorite for homosexual rights advocates is that Republican politicians love discrimination against homosexuals.  Supposedly, it gives them an issue to run on.  What is peculiar about the Democratic Party, however, is that the issue all Democrats seem to run on is who is picking on who.  Somehow we always need more government to give something to somebody.   Somebody is always being so mean government needs to take their property and reeducate them.
