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!

The Meaning of Religious Freedom [Trouble is Brewing in Illinois]

Last week, Gov. Rod Blagojevich signed into a law a bill that would force churches and synagogues to hire those openly practicing sins characterized by both Christian and Jewish scriptures as "abominations" – heinous transgressions in the sight of God

So, as I read this law, if a church or synagogue had a policy, based on its holiest, divinely inspired doctrines, to avoid hiring pastors who were adulterers, practitioners of group sex, homosexuals, bisexuals, "transgendered," cross-dressers, advocates of incest or child sex or even those partial to bestiality, that institution would be in violation of the law.

...

An Illinois law firm that analyzed the measure pointed out:

"While many such municipal prohibitions on sexual orientation discrimination expressly exempt religious organizations from their coverage, the new amendment to Illinois' Human Rights Act does not."

This puts the Illinois law on a collision course with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which safeguards as an inalienable right the free exercise of religion.

Me: If the courts are doing their job, such a restriction on freedom of religion, particularly if it relates to volitional action, like promoting and practicing homosexual activity, and not just homosexual orientation, should be overturned.
