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!

"Gay" Marriage Advertorial Rankles Post Readers

It appears that some liberal readers of the Washington Post object to free speech by those who disagree with same sex "marriage", even in advertisements:

A 16-page advertising insert taking a strong stand against gay marriage ran in some editions of The Washington Post Sunday, sparking more than 1,000 e-mails and phone calls, according to Ombudsman Michel Getler, who said most of the comments opposed the publication as offensive. ...

"We will not allow something hateful to go in the paper," [Washington Post Publisher Boisfeuillet Jones Jr.] said, indicating he did not believe this incident involved a hateful message. "Gay marriage is a public issue and matter of public debate, and we believed its point of view has a right to be expressed."...

Several e-mails Getler received, however, blasted the paper for running the insert. "The Washington Post lost a few notches of respect in my opinion," one e-mail said. "And that is all a paper really ever has." Said another, "The fact that the Post ran an advertisement whose clear purpose was to drive a wedge between two minority groups (blacks and gays) and which gave a voice to people who practice quack science and sell it as gospel is simply disgusting."
