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!

Tempers Flaming Hot over 'Gay Ski Week'

An online tourist website gave the following warning about Telluride ski resort's "gay" ski week:

"Although this week should be fun for those not offended by alternative lifestyles, with scheduled events including: The Pleasure Hunt, The Blue Ball Dance, Drag Races and more, we are strongly suggesting that families concerned with exposing their children to the homosexual lifestyle and homosexual behavior schedule their vacations another time.

"Events are planned throughout the week in both towns celebrating and promoting the homosexual lifestyle.

"Due to the intense controversy this year in regards to this week, the public display of homosexual pride and behavior will most likely be greater than last year. If this offends you, this is not the time to visit Telluride."

This innocuous bit of consideration for those who object to the promotion of homosexual activity raised the ire of the ski resort owners, who responded as follows:

"Telluride Ski Resort does not discriminate against any skiers or visitors to Telluride," the resort's marketing vice president, Pete Woods, told Heirich in an e-mail. "Obviously your website does not reflect that same message.

"Please remove any and all links to the website on the site immediately."

Me: Apparently one is not allowed in this day and age to warn people who may be offended by the promotion of homosexual activity of events that do just that. Notice that this message is not even calling for a boycott, merely informing those who might object to homosexual behavior that they might want to avoid this event. The fact that such a warning would be objectionable demonstrates that part of the purpose of an event like is this is precisely to promote the moral validity of homosexual activity. Obviously the ski resort owners WANT the evil Christian rubes who dare to think homosexual activity immoral to be confronted with the blatant practice and promotion of this activity. Can we dispense once and for all with any illusions that the gay activist and their leftist supporters are at all committed to freedom of thought or speech or to "diversity" in any way shape or form, or respect for differences of opinion on the complicated issue of homosexuality? Obviously they merely want to impose their orthodoxy on sexual morality on everyone and demonize anyone who disagrees. And as for the substance of such an event, why should practicing and promoting homosexuals be singled out as a group for such an event? Can one imagine an "African American Ski Week" or, horror of horrors, a "Christian Ski Week." Why should those with same sex attraction be shunted into a "gay ghetto" like this?
