Pushing homosexuality down the throats of Christians has gone on for years. Redstate’s Eric Erickson has often stated that “we will be made to care.” As the American Empire deteriorates from within, the efforts of the radical Homothugs and their liberal scum allies in the culture, media and government continue to get more aggressive.
This aggressiveness kicked into high gear in 2014 with the celebration of Michael Sam entering the NFL draft. Unfortunately for him he got boned down to the 7th round or so, then was cut. At the end of the day, he wasn’t up to par, just like lots of straight guys. But of course the liberal scum howled….It was a conspiracy against a gay man!!!! Never mind the fact he could only get signed to a practice squad, got another chance at a second combine, and bombed that one too. Case closed.
Also during this time Homothugs began winning “victories” against businesses who would not participate in celebrations of scissoring women or men boning other men up the ass. In 2015, the Homothugs are in overdrive. Let’s review just a few examples from the past few weeks in the War on Christians:
This has been going on since 2013. Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make a cake for a homosexual couple, citing a right to refuse based on their religious beliefs. The Homothugs in question, Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryers, of course brought a lawsuit. Homothug allies protested, and the store closed. The Klein family apparently now operates the business out of their home.
Within the past week, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries ruled the Klein’s discriminated against the Homothugs. Administrative law judge Allen McCollough proposed a fine of $135,000 against the Klein family for “emotional suffering.” Here’s an example of what the Homothugs claimed to “suffer” from this traumatic experience, from Kelsey Harkness at the Daily Signal:
“Examples of symptoms include “acute loss of confidence, doubt, excessive sleep, felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful, high blood pressure, impaired digestion, loss of appetite, migraine headaches, pale and sick at home after work, resumption of smoking habit, shock stunned, surprise, uncertainty, weight gain and worry.””
Just curious: as Breitbart pointed out, aren’t “loss of appetite” and “weight gain” mutually exclusive? Apparently not for Homothugs.
In sympathy of the Kleins, a GoFundMe account was set up to allow donations toward their fine. Per Hotair.com around $100,000 was quickly donated to the cause. Homothug allies and supporters then turned their ire to GoFundMe, who in turn caved and shut down the account. GFM’s excuse was that the case violated their policy of raising money “in defense of formal charges of heinous crimes, including violent, hateful or sexual acts.”
Um, can somebody PLEASE show me where Sweet Cakes case falls in those categories? GFM won’t allow support for a Christian cake baker, but they were allowing funding for a CONVICTED criminal named Jeremy Meeks. Ironically, after this hypocrisy was noted, the Meeks GFM page has also apparently been yanked.
A final fine against the Kleins hasn’t been determined, but the fact it exists at all is pathetic enough. Samaritans Purse has now taken up the fundraising cause for the Kleins. In the meantime, Christians should start asking themselves if the state of Oregon is our newest enemy.
Most of us know this story: reporter Alyssa Marino goes out looking for trouble; asks owner if they would serve gay wedding, owner says no, reporter can’t wait to tell everybody. Homothugs descend and attack. Store closes. GoFundMe account opened, and over 800 grand was raised in about a week, give or take. That’s gotta be close to a record. Amazingly, GFM didn’t shut it down.
Not that Homothugs didn’t try. A reporter for CBS 6 in Richmond, VA, one Alix Bryan, reported Memories’ GFM as fraud “just in case.” Just in case of WHAT? After plenty of mocking, Bryan issued about the tamest and lamest apology you’ll ever read. No evidence, just “just in case.” Nice employee you have there CBS Richmond, shame on you for employing scum like that.
Ted Cruz and the Gay Guys
Another story is the two gay guys who own some New York hotels hosted an appearance on their property by none other than that evil Republican Ted Cruz. The horror!!!! A post on mondoweiss.net reported the main discussion of the evening was foreign policy relating to Israel. The gay guys are reported to be strong supporters of Israel, as is Sen. Cruz.
Gay marriage did come up at some point, whereby Ted expressed the view that the matter should be decided by the states. I’m sure the gay guys shared their views, but it doesn’t sound like the conversation went much farther than that. All in all sounds like a fairly harmless evening; people who disagree on one subject can come together to agree on something else. Isn’t that supposed to be part of the American way?
But no!! The Homothugs went crazy. Immediately there were calls in the media, on Facebook, etc. for a boycott of the gay guys. Not by straights, but by gays. It didn’t matter that the guys had issued a statement saying they profoundly disagree with Ted on the subject of gay marriage, or that they had held a fundraiser for the Hildebeast. Gay men had fraternized with the enemy. That was unacceptable under ANY circumstances. As a townhall.com post noted, the gay guys were to be shut down for being tolerant.
Things got so bad so quick that the gay guys had to issue an apology. I laughed at how the apology started:
“I am shaken to my bones by the emails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake,” wrote Mr. Reisner. Gay guy then made the excuse that he wasn’t aware of Ted’s views on homosexuality. Lol, seriously??
It’s ok to be vocal in support of homosexuality, but if you’re vocal against it, you will be destroyed. Another message is clear: if you’re a tolerant gay, and have friends or associates on the other side, you will be destroyed just as if you liked playing for the other team. Decent gay people, I hope you took notice.
Another ongoing issue from 2013 is Arlene’s Flowers, where one Grandma Barronelle Stutzman refused to provide flowers for a homosexual wedding. She was fined $1,000, ordered to pay the Homothugs’ legal fees and also ordered to do business with Homothug couples. She has refused. The interesting part of the Christian Post article is that Grandma had done business with one of the Homothugs, a one Bob Ingersoll, for a decade. It was only when she wouldn’t participate in a celebration of homosexuality that they got pissy with her.
KVEW-TV.com reported Monday that the Alliance Defending Freedom has filed an appeal with the Washington Supreme Court on Grandma’s behalf, where the case will hopefully be heard. In the meantime, Grandma has to live with the threat of losing everything to the state of Washington and the Homothugs. This case hasn’t even cost said Homothugs a dime, as their legal fees are being paid by the ACLU. Grandma’s response to it all was excellent:
“Washington’s constitution guarantees us ‘freedom of conscience in all matters of religious sentiment.’ I cannot sell that precious freedom,” Stutzman wrote in a responding letter to the attorney general’s settlement offer. “You are asking me to walk in in the way of a well-known betrayer, one who sold something of infinite worth for 30 pieces of silver. That is something I will not do.”
“Your offer reveals that you don’t really understand me or what this conflict is about. It’s about freedom, not money,” Stutzman continued. “I certainly don’t relish the idea of losing my business, my home, and everything else that your lawsuit threatens to take from my family, but my freedom to honor God in doing what I do best is more important.”
Way to go, Grandma Stutzman. In an attempt to support her and pay her fines, a GoFundMe account was set up for her. Guess what happened? Yep, per Hotair.com yesterday her GFM account got yanked. It’s clear now the effort is on at GFM, perhaps in light of the Memories Pizza success, to prevent Christians from supporting each other financially. Whether it’s GFM doing it themselves or getting pressured from the Homothugs is irrelevant. Time to find an alternative. Yes, boycott. Say goodbye to GFM.
All isn’t lost yet
Christians aren’t losing every case at the moment. Hotair also reported a judge ruling that a Christian t-shirt store in Kentucky did not discriminate when it refused to make t-shirts for a gay event. That decision was based on freedom of speech, or disagreement with said speech. That may be an avenue to pursue, although I think eventually even freedom of speech for Christians will be limited.
Also, the US Supreme Court has begun hearing arguments on same sex marriage. At issue is whether states can pass laws against legalizing it, and whether or not states who don’t legalize gay marriage must recognize the marriages in those states which do. A decision will be rendered on this monumental case in June at the end of the Court’s session.
The Bottom Line
This issue isn’t going away anytime soon. The Homothugs and their allies in the media are putting on a full court press to demand Christian acceptance of their sin. Again, as Eric Erickson has said on Redstate.com, “you will be made to care.” Not me buddy, thank you very much. Ain’t gonna happen.
The average gay couple that wants to be left alone SHOULD be left alone. Anybody who goes all Westboro Baptist on any gay person should be slapped upside the head. In return, I should be left alone also and not be forced to condone, accept and celebrate something I profoundly disagree with. Your behavior is wrong. Nevertheless, you leave me alone, I leave you alone, we’re good.
At the same time, the Homothugs and their allies in the media and government, who want to ram acceptance of immoral behavior down our throats, must be fought. Liberal scum are like Terminators…they will never give up until absolute victory is achieved. Prayer, love and compassion are no longer enough. Politically, legally, financially, whatever way, it’s time to step up and take them on. A full frontal assault so to speak. We’ve waited too long.
The Homothugs must be fought. Period.
