In the days immediately following the Supreme Court’s judicial imposition of so-called “gay marriage” in all 50 states, I received a substantial amount of unsolicited email. Apparently so elated with the prospect of celebrating their nuptials, the first thing several LGBT activists sought to do was email taunts to those of us who opposed this most recent step towards sexual anarchy. One of my favorite comments came from Brad:
“You are a expletive expletive, and you and you and all your expletive loser expletive Christian friends can expletive. It’s over expletive. You lost. Love won. And you can expletive die and burn in hell for all I care. #LoveWins”
It just doesn’t get better than that. To be so lacking in self-awareness that you can champion yourself and your cause as the essence of “love” while simultaneously calling your fellow man seven different curse words in a few short sentences is an astonishing feat.
But while Brad’s undoubtedly claimed top prize in my pantheon of favorite hate mail, another message from another activist stands out as far more prophetic:
“Step one, check. Equal rights for all. Now, if I can just be honest, I can’t wait til we are able to lock all you expletive hater Christians up for speaking your hate.”
Again, intellectual consistency is not at a premium amongst those piloting the sexual revolution these days. You have no credibility as an advocate of “equal rights for all” when you declare your desire (in the very next sentence, no less) to lock up those who don’t agree with your agenda.
But credibility and consistency need not be a concern when you are in complete control of a society’s media, have total support of pop culture elites, own Hollywood, and can manipulate one entire political party and half of the other. That is what the LGBT political lobby enjoys which is one reason why its activists, even when speaking the language of tolerance and acceptance can do things like this without fear of being properly denounced:
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, tech millionaire turned LGBTQ activist Tim Gill said he’s aiming to punish Christians who don’t want to participate in same-sex weddings.
For more than two decades, the software programmer has poured an estimated $422 million into various gay rights causes. After the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage legal in all 50 states in 2015, Gill turned his attention and resources to targeting Christians.
Gill states specifically that he will be spending his millions to propagandize the country’s most conservative and Christian states, where he is hopeful to use his money and influence to, “punish the wicked.” Who is “the wicked?” Christians who morally oppose LGBT conduct and don’t wish to embrace or normalize it.
It is the perfected embodiment of yet another self-evident inconsistency: While Christians proclaiming LGBT behavior sinful is discriminatory and must be culturally scorned, LGBT activists proclaiming Christian behavior wicked is praiseworthy and must be culturally embraced.
If it weren’t for double standards, the LGBT movement and its host of cultural purveyors would have no standards at all.
