Gay rights "tolerance"

From Michelle Malkin.Com:
eHarmony, a Christian-targeted dating website, gets sued by a gay man demanding that the business match him up with a same-sex partner. The New Jersey Attorney General intervenes on behalf of the gay plaintiff and forces eHarmony to change its entire business model. To be clear: The company never refused to do business with anyone. Their great “sin” was not providing a specialized service that litigious gay people demanded they provide. This case is akin to a meat-eater suing a vegetarian restaurant for not offering him a ribeye...
This is apparently just the beginning. A judge has now approved a class-action lawsuit against e-Harmony in California.

OK, let's recap a bit.

Proposition 8, which defines marriage a between a man and a woman, passes in California and gay rights activists respond with hatred, intimidation and even violence.

A large Evangelical church in Michigan is physically attacked by a gay rights group in Michigan during a worship service.

Churches in California have been pelted with eggs, Christians' cars have been vandalized, and one pastor even had the window of his car shot out.

The city of Chino California threatened to fine people $25 per day for for putting up signs in support of traditional marriage. A church was threatened with a fine for distributing such signs.

In Massachusetts where same sex marriages have been legalized, a court told parents that schools now had an obligation to promote same sex marriages and that parents did not have a right to opt their kids out.

A church member in California was beaten and bloodied by a gay rights activist.

A doctor told a lesbian that he could not artificially inseminate an unmarried woman on religious grounds, but that he would refer he to another doctor who could. The lesbian sued the doctor who made the referral!

In Georgia, a lesbian went to a counsellor for help with a same sex relationship. The counsellor happened to be a Christian who did not agree with same sex relationships and referred the lesbian to another counselor. The lesbian sued the counsellor who made the referral.

A homosexual man is suing a Christian publishing house for $60 million dollars because the publishing house won't mis-translate the Bible to support homosexual preferences.

In Boston, school teachers were threatened with termination if they failed to portray homosexual marriage in a positive light and Michigan's largest homosexual activist group said that once gay marriage was legal, business owners or even news media outlets that fail to recognize such marriages should be sued or jailed.

The Canadian Human Rights Commission put a pastor on trial just for speaking out against homosexuality.

Gay activists managed to shut down an American Psychiatric Association panel discussion when the activists discovered that two Evangelicals were on the panel.

Gay activists manage to shut down a speech they disagreed with at Smith College.

At Missouri State University a professor required students to lobby the Missouri legislature for gay rights. When one student asked for an alternate assignment, she was hit with a "level 3 grievance", the strongest charge a faculty member can make against a student.

At Ohio State University, a college librarian was charged with sexual harassment and was condemned 21-0 in a faculty vote. His crime, recommending a book that the gay activists didn't approve of.

A formal complaint was filed with the New Jersey Division of Civil Rights by a gay couple who complain that their civil rights were violated when a church organization would not rent out their private facilities for a gay civil union.

Gay rights activists at Southern Illinois University sought to force a campus Christian group to include those who openly practice homosexuality.

The Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco (Nancy Pelosi's district) sold sex toys mocking Christian symbols, had people publicly whipped on crosses in mockery of Christianity, and
advertised using a sado-masochistic mockery of the Last Supper.

Gay activists on a University of Oregon campus newspaper ran depictions of a naked, crucified Jesus with an erection! Another picture showed a naked Jesus kissing another naked man, both with erections!

Gay rights activists force a private, Catholic adoption agency out of business because the adoption agency could not in good conscience adopt children to gay couples.

Let's be very clear. Opposition to "gay rights" in America is not about keeping Adam from visiting his roommate Steve in the hospital, or any other such nonsensical smoke screen arguments. It is a battle over freedom of speech and freedom of religion in America.

Although they preach tolerance, there is nothing tolerant about the gay rights movement! Far too many gay rights activists are totalitarian fascists who seek to force acceptance and promotion of their behaviors on every one else, and who try to legally trample on the freedoms of anyone who opposes them.

And we've just elected a president who supports their cause.

I agree with your premise, that freedom of speech and religion are being dismantled. I'm angry about it... which is usually not very helpful. Does anybody on here have any suggestions about what's can be done to prevent the removal of freedoms?

In respect to eHarmony, here is their press-release:

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

That's one way...

Violence is an unacceptable answer... frankly not even worth proposing. Next...

professor ed said...

If possible we need to counter this domestic terrorism with a hefty lawsuit, or two, through (eg) the alliance defense fund, etc. When a church is being harassed/intimidated, maybe the Christin Law Association can help. Of course if we are talking about random acts,where the perpatrator cannot be found, then maybe an umbrella Gay or Lesbian group should be sued; similiar to the strategy used against the KKK.

I agree with Kevin that violence is not an acceptable answer.

I also agree with professor Ed's solution. I think the analogy to the KKK is very appropriate.

Kevin said...

Good suggestions Prof. Ed.
