Not since Hitler has the world seen such outlandish politics as we are now facing in the United States. What Gays, Lesbian's, Bisexuals & Transgered people face is equivalent to the racism faced (and in some cases still face) by African American's and by numerous minorities in Hitler's Germany. Believe it or not, I've actually heard some people say that, "all faggots need to shipped to an island..." I won't name names, but needless to say I beat feet and got the hell out of dodge. I will say this, I wasn't surrounded by rednecks, back-woods country folks or anything like that. These people wore 3-piece designer suits, designer gowns, & considered themselves "upstanding citizens". Should you be scared? Damn Skippy!
These were right wing politico's. These were people that "tithe" their 10% to their church. These are the people that have extramarital affairs and then preach family values. These are the people that physically, mentally, emotionally, and sometimes even sexually abuse their spouses and/or children. If you want a really good laugh and to see what we as G/L/B/T individuals are up against, check out the following website:
International Organization of Heterosexual Rights
By the way, did you know homosexuality is caused by Soy??? Check out the above website. It's really a hoot!
What ever happened to the division of Church and State? Does someone have to be religeous to have a "moral code"? Come on people, the Right is not always right and the Left isn't always wrong. Hate is not a family value, period. Show me one place in the New Testament where Jesus said something negative about Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, or Transgendered. Don't take passages out of context. Read. Not just what you want to read. Read the ENTIRE thing. There are three, yes, just three, admonisments to homosexuals in the bible. Over 360 for heterosexuals. It doesn't mean heterosexuals are bad, they just need more supervision. And these are in the OLD TESTAMENT. Prior to Christ's birth and his crucifixition for our sins. Sounds to me like people are grasping at straws.
You'll notice that I'm not quoting statistics. Well, just like with the Holy Bible, you can manipulate anything to prove whatever you want.
