Bigots

This op-ed at One News Now is priceless. Paranoid ravings:

Unlike the sin of homosexuality, the other sins you cite — the sins of adultery, fornication, racism, pride, jealousy, selfish ambition and drunkenness — do not have the benefit of a tremendously powerful and prosperous lobby which is blindly supported by people in positions of political influence, and other leftists in media and elsewhere who have been duped by the crafty and disingenuous rhetoric of “tolerance” and “diversity.”

Gay rights advocates as fascists:

And so, fervent and relentless homosexual propaganda goose-steps along, trampling upon those who observe traditional notions of sexual morality. This sets homosexual sin worlds apart from the other sins you reference. Therefore, we Christians are left no choice but to assign homosexual sin significance commensurate with that which it demands.

The best quote from the article:

The sheer mechanics of homosexual conduct very naturally elicits revulsion in most rational folk. Therefore, most of us would prefer not to even imagine it, much less struggle to defend against its wholesale promotion.

I have to admit, the thought of having sex with another man is very unappealing to me. I don’t, however, attribute that to me being rational, but to the fact that I’m heterosexual. I think our author is confused here. Hopefully he doesn’t get any more confused or we’ll be subjected to rants about the irrationality of eating anchovies or whatever food he dislikes. Confusing personal emotions for rational argument is an unfortunate trait of the religious.

The whole “damn you leftists for making us think of this yucky stuff” part of that quote is great, too. It’s almost as much stupid as you can pack into two sentences.

    Best part of it:

    ‘drunkenness’ doesn’t have lobbyist and people in positions of political influence? Pete Coors anyone? Budweiser? Hello?
    Adultery and Fornication doesn’t? I see Las Vegas ads everyday.
    Racism doesn’t? The Republican party?

    Especially pride, like most of political action isn’t a sense of pride in a politicians abilities to accomplish something…

    Gotta admit… it leaves the wingnuttia with a helluva loophole.

    Notice that the writer doesn’t waste a lot of time getting to the “mechanics” of “homosexual conduct.” This is all they think about — the sex part. Issues, anyone?

    Sounds to me like someone is advertising for a Dom.
