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!

'Philadelphia Four' Drawing Nat'l Attention

More on the case of the four Christians in Philadelphia being punished by law for exercising their Constitutional right of free speech at a gay activist event. I love the following two quotes:

"From a First Amendment perspective, it does appear to be overreaching," said the ACLU's Larry Frankel. His group has not been asked to intervene, he said.

"As far as the convention is concerned, we believe those people were properly arrested and charged," said D.A. spokeswoman Cathie Abookire. "Every case is unique; every case has its own set of facts." Abookire added, "We don't see [the "Outfest" case] as a freedom-of-speech issue at all."

I'm glad the ACLU sees a freedom of speech issue here, even if the City of Philadelphia district attorney's office doesn't. However, ACLU has never been shy before on issues of free speech, so I wonder why it is not getting involved here.

Another article on the matter here.
