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!

Judge Dismisses Charges Against Anti-Gay Protestors

First Sweden, now Philadelphia! More good news on the freedom of speech front:

A city judge dismissed charges Thursday against four members of a conservative Christian group who were arrested last fall while picketing a street festival for gays and lesbians.

Common Pleas Judge Pamela Dembe tossed the charges after watching a videotape of the events leading to the defendants' arrest, saying: "We are one of the very few countries that protect unpopular speech."

The demonstrators, affiliated with a local group called Repent America, said their opposition to homosexuality is based on the Bible. They had faced a variety of charges, including felonies, in connection with their protest last fall at the Outfest event in downtown Philadelphia.

Prosecutors had said the bullhorn-wielding activists, led by Repent America founder Michael Marcavage of Lansdowne, Pa., were trying to incite the crowd. The defendants said they were being prosecuted for voicing their religious belief that homosexuality is a sin.

Marcavage had been charged with felony riot, criminal conspiracy and ethnic intimidation -- Pennsylvania's version of a hate crime -- and five misdemeanor counts including disorderly conduct and reckless endangerment.
