Gays Gone Wild

I gotta admit I’m not 100% surprised at all the violence (not being covered much on National television, btw, but good links below) that’s suddenly coming from radical homosexual groups across the nation, a reaction to the democratic process which shows that most Americans disagree with their lifestyle choices. I am surprised, however, that those homosexuals who aren’t of the violent radical bent, aren’t coming out against the violence and are instead letting them speak for the entire group.

It should be no surprise that the violence is aimed at Christian and Mormon groups, probably those most vocally opposed to the homosexual lifestyle. The vote results that have angered the gays, however, show that it isn’t just the Christians and Mormons who disagree with their choices, but the majority of the population.

I’ve said before but it’s worth saying again, I don’t hate homosexuals nor does anyone who I know and associate with. I think gays have made wrong choices, but I think that folks who use drugs make wrong choices, too. I don’t think that a druggie should be allowed to marry his bongpipe though.

All kidding aside, I’ve known and worked with those of the homosexual persuasion for many years. The first one openly admitted, I met as a college sophomore. Homosexuals make up a larger portion in the creative industries than probably any industry…okay, except maybe hair dressers.

And yet, I find it incredibly ironic that those who yell and scream and say folks like me are intolerant and bigoted are acting…well, intolerant and bigoted. And, recently, very violent. Why is it that they suddenly have absolutely no respect for the democratic process of the United States? Why is it that they think they’re better than the rest of the folks and have the right to tell the majority what to do? The United States has this process in place for a reason, and that is to serve the people. The people voted, the people spoke. Now, a very teeny tiny portion of our population is out to prove those people wrong…and they’re doing it with violence. Yeah, that wins over a lot of people.

I’ve always been of the opinion that, sure, they’ve made a dumb choice, but it’s their choice to make. But when they start trying to change laws to gain special favor (such as the so-called hate laws), then I get agitated. Why is the violence they are now committing not considered hate violence? It should go both ways.

Oh. And before I forget, my Mom reminded me that I haven’t updated the McDonald’s Boycott status. Well, the boycott is off. McDonald’s has withdrawn their support of the homosexual agenda. Many will claim it is because of the downturn in the economy. That’s okay. Whatever the “real” reason, McDonald’s has regained their senses and the boycott is off. I had a BigMac today. J

NOW, links to homosexual violence videos so you’ll know I’m not just making this stuff up! Keep in mind, some of the videos have vulgar language.

Silencing the Christians

Wow.

I just watched the first few episodes of a series called Silencing the Christians and WOW! This IS the stuff of my second novel–I mean, if you didn’t know it (and if I wasn’t telling you right here right now), you’d think I’d watched the video and then immediately penned the opening chapters of my book. It gets me even more excited about The Gifted, which is a teen series novel I just finished and am currently shopping around. It’s pretty neat, too, because ocassionally one of the speakers will say something to the effect that Christians need to speak up or stand up…The first chapter featuring my main character is (tentatively) titled “The Warning,” and basically says the same thing. While the message of the video is very alarming to Christians, it has gotten me very excited about the timing of my novel.

Funny sidenote: I got a response to my query from one agent that suggested I do some research as most publishers don’t publish 30k word novels. While it may very well be true that publishers won’t publish that length, I had, in fact, done quite a bit of research and found that the word count is recommended for my target age group. So, had he read the entire query letter, he would have seen it was not a traditional adult contemporary, but for an illustrated teen novel. I was very good–I resisted the urge to write him back to point out his error. I may want to send my next one to him. 🙂

One of the cases mentioned in the video, which I’d heard about, but didn’t really know much about, was the case of the Philladelphia 11. What happened was 11 Christians decided to witness on the streets during a “gay pride” parade in the City of Brotherly Love. Seems like the parade organizers caught wind of it and made plans to block them. The entire thing was caught on video. Initially, the group is told they have the right to go anywhere they want to because it is a public street. Next thing you know–they are arrested! Unbelievable, I know. But this is true and happened right here in America!

Another case featured a young Valedictorian giving her graduation speech. Administrators had given her instructions on what to say in the speech–things like “what motivates you,” “what kept you going,” etc. So, being a Christian, she mentioned Jesus. She received an “edited” version of her speech back from the administrators who told her she could mention “God,” but not “Jesus.” She decided the First Amendment protected her right to free speech…however, when she reached the part of her speech that mentioned Jesus, the microphone was cut off and she was removed from the stage!

WOW! In the United States! I know that most of you reading this find it hard to believe. It sounds like fiction–it certainly does to me. Unfortunately, thanks to our ever growing government, it’s all too true…and too scary.

There are other cases, but it won’t be near as powerful coming from me as it is to watch it. It’s free and on the internet–a little repetitive at times (it’s a tv show and they all seem to be a bit repetitive these days), but well worth your time. Go watch it…and then be very very afraid.
