America is under siege by terrorists attacking the First Amendment. A pair of homosexual activist groups and a cable network have joined forces to shut up a Christian who said sin is sin.
Apparently afraid of letting the marketplace decide which ideas will rise to the top through thorough examination and debate, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLADD) and the so-called Human Rights Campaign (HRC) claim to stand for rights.
The problem is both groups are for the “rights” of a few at the expense of the rest of us. For example, GLADD clearly states its purpose on its website, “Leading the conversation. Shaping the media narrative. Changing the culture. That’s GLAAD at work.”
In other words, if you are a born-again Christian, practicing Catholic or Muslim, your views do not belong in the market place of ideas, the media or even the culture. Looking at it another way, people who disagree with homosexuals have no right to free speech, religion or even thought.
There were other avenues the groups could have taken. They could have turned their TVs off. They could have written letters-to-the-editor to GQ, which published the interview that has raised the fuss. They could have boycotted A&E for airing “Duck Dyansty,” the show in which Phil Robertson plays a role.
Instead, went for the nuclear option—ban the alleged perpetrator. Why? Here is one of the more controversial Robertson quotes from the article:
“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”
Here’s an idea for the thought Nazis, why not put the comment in question form and ask it in a variety of men’s and women’s magazines and websites. Then publish the results. Let readers analyze the data for themselves.
If anyone is interested in stopping the cultural Nazis you might try boycotting A&E Networks and its affiliates. Flood GLAAD and HRC with comments on how you feel about free speech. Agreeing with Robertson’s right to say and believe something is not the same as agreeing with his position.
But if the brownshirts beat Robertson today, who will stop them when the come to kick in your door ?
