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!

Religious and European: An Unacceptable Combination?

Here is a transcript and video of Rocco Buttiglione's speech to the American Enterprise Institute. An excerpt:

Their battle for democracy is moral relativism, and if you are not a moral relativist, you are a second-class citizen. I do not want to emphasize my personal affair. After all, I have only renounced to a seat in the European Commission. There are things more valuable than a seat in the Commission, your faith, your conscience, first among them....

It seems that we are going back to that same kind of thought. We much impose absolute relativism. We must destroy all existing religions. And only then we may have peace. It is not a theoretical construction. A pastor in Sweden has been sentenced to one month in jail for having said that homosexuality is a sin. In France there was a law proposal, sending in jail up to four years, anybody who said that homosexuality is a sin, which makes life very difficult for Catholic priests, but I suspect also for many Jewish rabbis and pastors of other Christian denominations.

A free society is a society in which we are free to commit sin and we are free to say that sin is sin [emphasis added]. If one of these pillars falls, then society is no more free. So we have a consistent trend, mainly of Marxist origin. Marxists accepted that Marxism was wrong under the condition that nothing is right. And the distinction between right and wrong is abolished due to the intellectual history of (?), its transition from Marxism to deconstructionism.
