Liberty and Virtue

A person who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with his religious beliefs keeps an eye out for examples of gay activists' (1) showing intolerance and hatred of traditional religious and moral beliefs and believers, (2) attempting to deny freedom of speech, assembly and religion to others, and (3) trying to cause the government to impose liberal views on sexual morality on society. Other stuff of interest to blogger may also occasionally be posted.

Gay activists do not speak for all those who experience same sex attraction!

Not all those with SSA reject traditional sexual morality!

Not all those with SSA support promiscuity!

Not all those with SSA believe the gay activist ideology of “gay pride”!

Not all those with SSA believe in making their sex drive their primary public identity!

Not all those with SSA support public indecency in “gay pride” parades!

Not all those with SSA support government promotion of homosexual activity!

Not all those with SSA support same sex marriage!

Not all those with SSA support biased teaching in public schools on homosexual matters!

Not all those with SSA demonize traditional religious believers!

Not all those with SSA wish to deny basic freedoms of speech, religion and association to those who disagree with the gay activists’ ideology and agenda!

Christian charity for persons does not require affirmation of sinful or immoral activity!

Greetings!

Hello to all and sundry who may happen to pass this way! I am creating this blog because, as a human being who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with my Catholic faith, I am very concerned by the increasing attempts of gay activists to impose their ideologies of "gay pride" and "coming out" on the rest of society. These activists presume to speak in my name, but they do not represent me and have no right to do so. They promote a hatred and intolerance of those who hold traditional religious beliefs, especially Christian beliefs on issues of sexual morality, and are increasing using the government to promote homosexual activity through civil same sex marriage and teaching of homosexual activity as normative in public schools.

Even more frighteningly, gay activists are promoting legislation in many countries that criminalizes speech that disapproves of homosexual activity. They have been and are likely to continue to be successful in passing such laws in Canada, Sweden and several other European countries. While our courts have a strong tradition of construing our First Amendment freedoms of speech quite broadly, the Left in this country, which was once a strong defender of civil liberties, has increasingly been on the side of restricting freedoms of speech, association and religion. I hope and pray that our First Amendment freedoms will survive more years of activist social-engineering Left wing judges and public officials.

I am all for tolerance, and believe that Christians must love the sinner and hate the sin, drawing the line in specific instances according to their individual judgments and consciences. But once the gay activists step over the line from embracing for themselves what I consider to be an erroneous ideology to actively forcing that ideology on others and persecuting those who have good faith disagreements with them, then I feel it necessary to speak out and hold the gay activists to account for their promotion of hatred and intolerance. This blog will be on the lookout for acts of intolerance by gay activists and their allies in society. I may also, since this topic tends to be rather depressing for those of us who embrace traditional moral and religious values, toss in items on more lighthearted or encouraging long term developments in society from time to time, as the spirit moves me.

God bless,

Charles S.

Sir, you have my appreciation.

That fact that you face temptation and are addressing it in this matter is admirable and you are using it effectively as a launchpad and as an effective, thought-provoking context to prove what I have always believed to be true. Facing an urge to sin, even in a specific way, does not make one a sinner in that manner (we're all sinners, and we all sin somehow), and giving in to the temptation doesn't justify being a invasive jerk in the political field.

Just because we live tempted to sin doesn't mean we have to live by those sins.

and frankly your background makes you rhetorically effective.

This is hard; I'm trying to not sound too pious or make it sound like my temptations involve anything that they don't.

if sumone is gay and u want to get married,dont if u wana be agy or live together do it but dont go get married in church i mean come on. god loves everyone of us but if he wanted people to be gay he would have made 3 couples one of the opposite sex,2 women, or 2 men. but he only made a couple of the opposite sex. so gay marriages shouldnt be approved.im not against gay people but if u wana b together go ahead but dont get married.
