OK, it has been at least a week so I had better get back to what is now becoming a full-time assignment: monitoring all the nasty activities of the tolerance brigade. You know who I mean: those who scream the loudest about the urgent need for tolerance, acceptance and diversity.
The only problem is, they are the least tolerant, the least accepting, and the least into diversity group around. Every day they engage in new storm trooper tactics to silence all opposition, rebuke all critics, and punish all “recalcitrants”.
Yes, it is the gay mafia doing their thing again. Consider these five recent cases of tolerance in action. They come from the US, the UK, and Europe. Beginning in Colorado, we have yet another case of a Christian cake-maker being dragged to the courts for standing up for conscience:
“A gay couple is pursuing a discrimination complaint against a Colorado bakery, saying the business refused them a wedding cake to honor their Massachusetts ceremony, and alleging that the owners have a history of turning away same-sex couples. As more states move to legalize same-sex marriage and civil unions, the case highlights a growing tension between gay rights advocates and supporters of religious freedom….
“Mullins, 28, and Craig, 33, filed the discrimination complaint against Phillips after visiting his business in suburban Denver last summer. After a few minutes looking at pictures of different cakes, the couple said Phillips told them he wouldn’t make one for them when he found out it was to celebrate their wedding in Colorado after they got married in Massachusetts. Phillips has said making a wedding cake for gay couples would violate his Christian religious beliefs, according to the complaint.”
The second case involves an army soldier who was actually disciplined for serving Chick-Fil-A at his promotion party: “A U.S. Army serviceman has been reprimanded for serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at a party celebrating his promotion to master sergeant. The unidentified soldier was investigated, reprimanded, threatened with judicial action, and given a bad efficiency report after sending invitations that read, ‘In honor of my promotion and in honor of the Defense of Marriage Act, I’m serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at my promotion party,’ according to the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty….
“His promotion coincided with last year’s controversy over Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s comments supporting traditional marriage. Homosexual activists called for boycotts of the franchise, and several liberal public officials threatened to take municipal action against the chain. Crews said that nearly one year later, the soldier is still fighting the reprimand in court.”
It is not just adults caught in the crosshairs of the homosexual juggernaut: Children are also being targeted. Consider this appalling case from Belfast: “A three-year-old boy has been taught by his nursery carer that when he grows up he will be able to marry a boy or a girl. The boy’s identity is being protected, but his parent wrote a letter to a local newspaper about the incident. The letter said: ‘Many of your commentators have speculated as to what the wider implications of allowing same-sex marriages will be on society’.
“Legal experts have warned that, if same-sex marriage is introduced, there would be a legal duty to teach its importance in sex and relationships education. The experts also say parents would have no legal right to withdraw their children from curriculum lessons that promote same-sex marriage. And teachers who disagree with endorsing same-sex marriage could face legal action. A Bill to legalise same-sex marriage in England and Wales is currently being considered by Parliament.”
And in France where homosexual marriage was recently legalised, things are quickly degenerating into a police state: “The mayor of a small town in France’s Basque region has announced his refusal to carry out a ‘marriage’ between two men who reside in his jurisdiction, becoming the first mayor to defy the country’s new law that applies the name and rights of ‘matrimony’ to couples of the same sex.
“Jean-Michel Colo, a conservative who heads the town of Arcangues in the southern Basque region of Pyrenees-Atlantiques, faces the possibility of a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of 75,000 euros (100,000 USD), according to French media sources. However, he appears to be unafraid of the consequences of his stand, telling the media that he will ‘go all the way to the gallows’ to oppose the law.
“‘I don’t give lessons, I’m not inciting other mayors to follow my example, but I won’t enforce an illegitimate law,’ says Colo. ‘My seven councilmen and I are completely in agreement in saying that we will not participate in this charade.’ The mayor’s stand is expected to be only the first of many that are likely to occur under the new law, which went into effect on May 28. In addition to the town council’s support, Colo says he has received 1,500 messages of support to date.”
Finally, this headline out of Scotland: “Scottish Catholic adoption agency threatened with closure over gay adoption.” The story proceeds: “Another British Catholic adoption agency is being threatened with closure by the government for refusing to toe the government’s line of support for the homosexualist political agenda. St. Margaret’s Children and Family Care Society, associated with the Catholic archdiocese of Glasgow, has lost a ruling in its argument with the Scottish government’s charity regulator, which is demanding the charity drop its policy of adopting only to mothers and fathers who have been married for at least two years.
“The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has found St. Margaret’s in violation of the Equality Act 2010, saying that its policy ‘discriminated unlawfully’ against same-sex couples. St. Margaret’s is remaining defiant, however, saying that they will fight the decision. The Christian Institute campaign group quoted a St. Margaret’s board member saying, ‘The ultimate irony is that apparently in the name of tolerance, societies such as Saint Margaret’s are no longer to be tolerated’.”
Yep that is the essence of it all: a group which demands that everyone in the world show them tolerance refuses to extend tolerance to anyone else. This is just how they operate. They have declared an all out war on anyone and anything which stands in their way.
So until next week….
