And Even More of the Tolerance Brigade

Yep, it’s been at least a week, so we have plenty more cases of the tolerance brigade doing their thing. The militants will not rest until the entire world bows in subservience to their twisted agenda. And they are more than happy to use the heavy hand of the law and other means to ensure that their agenda is fully implemented and adhered to.

So here I offer three more recent examples of the social engineers crushing democracy and freedom of speech as they force-feed their radicalism upon an unwilling populace. And the first example is quite an eye-opener: it in fact involves the homosexual activists turning on one of their own.

It seems one brave homosexual was willing to say what we all know – but for doing so he has been crucified by his militant buddies. English actor and open homosexual Rupert Everett is now receiving death threats from the tolerance brigade. Why? Because he said homosexual parenting was not exactly great for children.

As one report states, “The openly homosexual star came under fire from campaign groups after he stated that children ‘need a father and a mother’, adding, ‘[I] can’t think of anything worse than being brought up by two gay dads.’ He subsequently clarified his remarks, insisting he is not ‘against’ same-sex couples having kids, but he has now revealed that he has since received a number of nasty messages. Everett tells British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, ‘I’ve now had all this hate mail and there have been death threats, too… All the queens out there now have it in for me. I’m loathed by them. I’m having to take evasive action’.”

Yes they are such a tolerant and accepting bunch – you know, so very much into diversity and love and all those sorts of things. It does not get much better in the US. In the American state of Maryland a diversity officer no less has been given the flick for daring to sign a pro-marriage petition. Consider this incredible story:

“Conservatives and even some liberals across the nation are outraged after Gallaudet University suspended the school’s chief diversity officer after she signed a petition in her church to put a gay marriage referendum on the ballot in Maryland.

“Angela McCaskill, a 23-year veteran of the university, was placed on paid leave as the university investigates her support for traditional marriage. ‘It recently came to my attention that Dr. McCaskill has participated in a legislative initiative that some feel is inappropriate for an individual serving as Chief Diversity Officer; however, other individuals feel differently,’ wrote Gallaudet president T. Alan Hurwitz in an email sent to the campus community.

“McCaskill’s attorney said they will hold a press conference on Tuesday — stressing that his client is not ‘anti-gay.’ McCaskill was one of 200,000 residents who signed a petition to put ‘Maryland’s Question 6’ on the ballot. The measure is a referendum on same-sex ‘marriage.’

“The Washington Blade published the names and addresses of every person who signed the petition. An anonymous faculty member spotted McCaskill’s name in the newspaper and immediately notified authorities. Hurwitz said McCaskill, who earned the school’s first Ph.D as a deaf African-American woman, was immediately placed on leave. Her job remains in jeopardy.”

Yep – so much for freedom of speech and diversity of opinion at our universities. But hey, why wait till university to get into the heavy-handed persecution? Why not start in high school? Well, that is exactly what some schools in Australia are doing.

It seems the thought police are alive and well there, and they will crack down on anyone who dares suggest that heterosexuality is somehow normal. As one news item reports: “NSW Education Minister Adrian Piccoli says the government is committed to stamping out homophobic bullying in schools, but his department won’t approve teaching material aimed at stamping out ‘heterosexism’.

“It comes after it was revealed that students at 12 NSW high schools are being taught it is wrong and ‘heterosexist’ to regard heterosexuality as the norm for relationships. The ‘Proud Schools’ pilot program, implemented in 12 government schools in Sydney and the Hunter, is designed to stamp out ‘homophobia, transphobia (fear of transsexuals) and heterosexism’.

“Teachers are given professional development to learn to identify and stamp out any instances of ‘heterosexist’ language in the playground, such as ‘that’s so gay’. But at least 10 Liberal MPs are ‘extremely concerned’ about the program, and will complain to Education Minister Adrian Piccoli this week.”

Only ten? Every single one of them should be making a stink. And this foolishness should never have come about in the first place under a Liberal state government. Columnist Miranda Devine comments: “So now it’s a thought crime to regard heterosexuality as the norm in human relationships. This is called ‘heterosexism’, joining racism and sexism as the new no-go zone, and the Proud Schools pilot program rolled out to 12 Sydney and Hunter high schools over the past two terms is aimed at stamping it out.

“The program defines ‘heterosexism’ as the practice of ‘positioning heterosexuality as the norm for human relationship’, according to the Proud Schools Consultation Report. ‘It involves ignoring, making invisible or discriminating against non-heterosexual people, their relationships and their interests. Heterosexism feeds homophobia.’ So there it is. If you think the vast majority of people are attracted to the opposite sex and that heterosexual human relationships are the norm, you are feeding homophobia.”

Her conclusion is spot on: “It’s not up to academics to dictate attitudes to society via indoctrination of captive children in classrooms, and it’s irresponsible of politicians to allow them to do so. Parents expect their children to go to school to learn basic skills, and become socialised. They expect a safe environment in which everyone is treated with respect and without bullying.

“But they also don’t expect that their values should be subverted by homosexual or any other propaganda. And they don’t expect that widespread acceptance of heterosexuality as the most common human experience would be demonised.”

Exactly right. Yet the militants not only want to stamp out all opinions differing from their own, but they want to turn day into night, and black into white. Thus the big crime today is to even believe heterosexuality is normal, while the thought police will enforce the belief that homosexuality somehow is. Go figure. Talk about a brave new world.

  1. Dear Bill, greetings,

    My comment is: OUTRAGIOUS!!
    My question is: Do Fred Nile and Paul Green know about this?

    Joost Gemeren

  2. They will never give up eg in the Herald Sun today ‘The pilot drew on a similar program in Victoria, the “Safe Schools Coalition” to “support sexual diversity” in schools, which holds that gender and sexuality are not fixed but fluid concepts. In Victoria, each participating school is advised to erect a noticeboard specifically for gay, lesbian, transgender and “gender-questioning” young people.

    They are grooming kids to vote for the SSM in the future

  3. This is yet another reason why we keep homeschooling. And I don’t know why many more Christian parents are not! Well I can think of some reasons: public education is a sacred cow for one thing, many Christians have not even thought about it, even in a lot of churches you are still the weird minority. But I have noticed in the often-quoted passage of 2 Chronicles 7:14 that it is GOD’S PEOPLE who must turn from THEIR wicked ways if we are to have forgiveness and healing for our land. From there I started wondering, “What our our wicked ways?” One of my thoughts on that was that to send children, who are to be brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, to the secular, humanistic school system whose aim is totally opposed to that, is sin. I for one am not going to put my children into an institution where they are going to be taught filth.

  4. It seems impossible —— that we should have come to this level of anti-reason being promoted as sanity and compassion !!
    We seem to be rushing, like lemmings, to the very brink of hell. May God save us before we come to utter ruin.
    Anna Cook

  5. Was struck by Harvey’s quote from the ‘Safe Schools Coalition’ – which holds that ‘gender and sexuality are not fixed.’ I thought we were always being told they were BORN that way and that they could not change. Reparation therapy was a myth we were told. Now it seems sexuality is a ‘fluid concept’ (no pun intended )? Any more uncertainty and challenging fundamentals of position will make them eligible to becoming bishops in certain heretical churches.

  6. When I was young, the only sex education my parents gave me was to avoid strangers who offered me sweeties.

    I really do think we need to teach children the art of self defence, using the knee, fingers and any thing that come to hand if they are approached by a sexual predator. In particular boys should be made wary of men who sexually molest boys, because they 60 time more likely to molest than a man who molests a girl.

    This is the only safe sex I would be teaching a child: how to protect themselves from the abuser and groomer.

  7. In a recent comment on these matters I questioned the sanity on many of the people putting forward these ideas. I am convinced that they must be insane, or evil, or both.

  8. Yes, Joost, Fred Nile and Paul Green do know about this. They were the only ones quoted by the Telegraph as speaking out against it, although 12 Liberal MPs were stated to be unhappy about it.To quote Miranda Devine: ‘Upper house MP Fred Nile yesterday attacked the program, calling it “propaganda” and promised to raise the issue in parliament.

    “I’m totally opposed to the brainwashing of high school students, especially when they are going through puberty,” Mr Nile said.

    “Homosexuals at most make up 2 per cent of the population – I don’t know why the education department would give priority to promoting this (program).

    “We will have more confused teenagers than ever … children should be allowed to develop themselves.”

    In June, Mr Piccoli pledged the government’s ongoing support of the pilot.’

    Personally, after hearing Dr Patrick Sookhdeo at the ACNA Forum at Parlt House organised by Fred Nile yesterday I have a much clearer understanding of the slippery slope we are on. Between the Secular Humanist thrust, predominant in our society and Government today, using the Homosexual agenda and the Islamic agenda, there is an almost collaborative agenda to annihilate Christianity. Dr Sookhdeo, a British Academic of vast experience is a Christian with great insight into our world today. If you are interested I recommend you get a copy of “Addressing the Challenge of Islam” CD or DVD for $5 plus $2 postage from ACNA email: acnaoffice@gmail.com.

  9. I can feel a letter coming on, Mr Piccoli, get ready for some serious reading. Who are the individuals who peddle this garbage? This is what I would like to know but you never get to see or hear anything about who (or what) they are! What kind of people are leading this country and its states? And even worse, what type of people are putting them there?

    Steve Davis

  10. Yes, Steve, those who make these rotten decisions always manage to protect themselves by lesser bureaucrats like a human shield. That’s how brave they are.
    Many blessings
    Ursula Bennett

  11. You are so right Ursula, I have fired off a short and to the point letter to O’Farrell telling him politely that heterosexuality has always been the norm and if he wants any grandkids it had better stay the “norm”!

    Steve Davis

  12. Thanks Bill for keeping us informed. Keep up the good work. We are keeping you in our prayers along with our world which is turning away from the truth. This Liberal government needs to be told ship up or out you go in one term.

    Andrew Kennedy

  13. Hi Bill and fellow readers.

    I wish I would have kept the link (this was noticed at least 10 years ago whilst stumbling about the web; I’m not sure how I came across it) but I once read an article, written by a hard-line British gay activist, where he was actually castigating his fellows gays for daring to prefer the company of their straight friends than their fellow gays!

    One would have thought that such unconditional acceptance of these gay folk by their straight friends was the kind of acceptance that activists such as this ‘gentleman’ were clamouring for but, no, to this man’s mind to even dare to prefer the friendship of straights to joining their fellow gays in radical activism was little short of Quisling-like activity; siding with the (in his mind) neo-Nazi enemy.

    Such is the paranoid mindset of some of the more extreme activists out there.
