God Says Don't

That there are things which are forbidden to the followers of a religion seems lost on many commenters.

It's only that it's Christians speaking up and refusing to do something they feel is contraindicated by their religion and that refusal affects one of the Great Protected Classes™ that we're hearing about it.

I recall, not that long ago in fact, that it was WRONG for a minority to completely dominate politics and to deny and disparage the majority...

Where was that?

It was a whole nation...  Perhaps even more than one...

Oh yeah, ALL OF FUCKING POST-COLONIAL AFRICA!

"But it's not like that here," you say?

Perhaps not, but if it's wrong for 15% of the population to call the shots about everything because of their skin color; it's just as wrong, if not more wrong, for 4% to have everything their way because of their sexual orientation.  This comparison is even more apt if homosexuality is a matter of birth not choice (science is still crunching on it, jury not in yet).

However, let's invert it and say that the minority SHOULD be in charge.  Suits me, I'm a man.  Women outnumber us 3 to 2...  Lemme guess, "that's different"?

Sure it is.  But only because you don't want to have things to be equal.  You only want to pay lip service to that freedom of religion, freedom of association, and created equal stuff.

The last thing you want is for people to actually be free.

Probably because liberty is ugly and disorganized.  You want things to be pretty and neat.

  1. This was a reply to a meatspace conversation and not about something from someone or anyone's blog. A meatspace conversation where I had to keep my big trap shut and let Mr Librul go on and on about the Evol Aparthid XXXhristians ruining America...

  2. Hear, hear! Some people (I name no names) seem to think there is some sort of heaven-sent right not to ever have their feelings hurt.

    Me, if I find that a particular businessman doesn't want my business, I go elsewhere. I don't flap around in circles and screech like a gutshot deer.

    Excuse me, you were saying something about "protected classes"? ;)
