RSM gets it juuuust right:
This isn’t about “equality” or “liberation.” No, it’s about homo hegemony, as the fanatics seek to secure a privileged and superior status for themselves and their preferences. That’s not disco music you hear, it’s the sound of hobnailed boots marching over broken glass.
Tolerance gradually reveals itself as totalitarianism, and it’s amazing that people acquiesce to such bullying. According to a recent Gallup survey, 3.4 percent of Americans identify themselves as “LGBT,” to use the de rigeur acronym. Why should 96.6 percent be compelled to kowtow to the sensibilities of the 3.4 percent?
I’ve been agnostic on gay marriage for some time – I don’t think the State has any business in the marriage game, and I don’t care what other people do with their sex lives.
The Chic-Fil-A kerfuffle was, for me, an eye-opener. Although I’m aware being against gay marriage has been equated with an ethereal notion of “hate” for some time, the sudden mainstreaming of this idiotic notion finally came into full color.
I still don’t care about other people’s sex lives, I still don’t think the State should have any say over marriage, and I lost all sympathy for the gay marriage racket when the equation suddenly became being against gay marriage (which I’m not) being equivocal to hate.
If the gay marriage movement wants to use a scorched-earth policy to silence its opponents – and that’s clearly the tactic now – then consider me, er, agnostic-er, regarding the issue. In short, my view hasn’t changed, but my sympathy is gone. Although a chorus of crickets will greet this, it’s worth saying.
So there’s that.
