More Scenes from the Tolerance Brigade

Most of those pushing the hardest for homosexual marriage don’t even really want it. In fact, wherever it is legalised around the world there isn’t exactly a stampede down the aisle. It is really all about symbolism and social acceptance. All this I carefully document in my recent book, with numerous quotes from homosexual activists themselves saying just these things:

But another reason why this is being pushed so doggedly is because it is a tremendous means by which the activists can silence any and all critics. By pulling these special rights out of a hat, they can impose all sorts of obligations on the rest of society, whether they like it or not. And I have already documented hundreds of recent cases of this happening.

All over the place people who dare to resist the radical social engineers are losing their jobs, being fined, and even jailed for their recalcitrance. Let me here offer just a few more examples of this, and then cite yet another homosexual who admits that marriage is a dumb idea anyway. Check out these recent cases of the tolerance brigade in action:

“Judge allows lawsuit against pastor for opposing homosexuality”
August 23, 2013
“A U.S. judge is allowing a lawsuit by a Ugandan homosexual group charging an Evangelical pastor with a ‘crime against humanity.’ The American pastor is accused of violating international law for speaking against homosexuality and discussing legislation with Ugandan leaders. Scott Lively, an attorney and author, runs the Holy Grounds coffee house in Massachusetts where coffee and Bibles are free and Sunday church services minister to homeless people, drug addicts and others. In 2009, he was invited to speak at a conference in Uganda where he said the goal of the homosexual movement is ‘to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity’.”

“Christian bakers who refused cake order for gay wedding forced to close shop”
September 2, 2013
“A husband-and-wife bakery shop team in Oregon were forced to close their shop doors and move to cheaper digs — their home — after gay-rights activists hounded them and drove away contract business because they refused for Christian reasons to bake for a same-sex wedding. Aaron and Melissa Klein own and operate Sweet Cakes by Melissa. In the past few months, they’ve faced heated scrutiny — some in the form of physical threats — from those in the gay-rights crowd who decried their May refusal to bake for a lesbian couple who wanted to marry. The Kleins cited their Christian beliefs of traditional marriage when they turned down that business gig, The Blaze reported. But the lesbian couple filed a complaint with the state, accusing the shop owners of discrimination. Since, they’ve been hounded by vicious telephone calls and emails.”

“One complaint, Facebook campaign force restaurant owners to take down ‘anti-gay’ newspaper clipping”
September 3, 2013
“A restaurant owner in the Eastern Ontario town of Bancroft has been forced to remove a newspaper clipping that had been on a bulletin board for over ten years because of one complaint that resulted in a Facebook campaign to organize a protest at the privately owned business. The old Toronto Star clipping featuring the words ‘God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve’ has been pinned to the bulletin board of the Eagle’s Nest Restaurant and Bakery for a decade, according to owners Sadie and Doug Creighton. The clipping stirred no controversy until a lesbian couple new to the community complained that they were offended by it.”

“Fox Sports football announcer fired over 2011 remarks on homosexuality”
September 9, 2013
“Thou shalt not refer to homosexuality as ‘a choice’ – at least not if you ever want to work for Fox Sports. That’s the lesson announcer Craig James learned this week when he was fired from his job covering college football after just one appearance, because of remarks he made on the campaign trail during his unsuccessful run for U.S. Senate back in 2011.”

“Air Force Sergeant claims he was fired for refusing to endorse gay ‘marriage’: faces court martial”
September 10, 2013
“An Air Force sergeant who filed a discrimination complaint with the U.S. military claiming he was fired by his lesbian commander for refusing to make a statement of support for same-sex ‘marriage’ may now face prosecution for taking his accusations public. Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk was relieved of his duties as first sergeant at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio in August after two separate confrontations with an openly homosexual superior officer, Major Elisa Valenzeula.”

“Transgender man wins complaint against bridal shop for not letting him try on wedding dress”
September 19, 2013
“The Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission announced that a mediated settlement has been reached between the owner of a Saskatoon bridal shop and a man who presents himself as a woman. Rohit Singh, a student from India who came to Canada in 2010, filed a complaint against Jenny’s Bridal Boutique after the owner of the shop refused to allow him access to the women’s changing room. When Singh selected a dress and wanted to try it on, shop owner Jenny Correia refused him, saying “I don’t allow men to wear dresses in my store.’ Singh retorted, ‘I’m not a man, I’m a transgender and my sex-change procedure is going on,’ according to media reports of the incident that happened on April 21. The owner believed allowing a man to try on dresses would make female customers in the shop uncomfortable.”

“Gay activists launch complaint against teacher who included homosexuality on list of possible sins”
September 23, 2013
“Days after the Italian lower house passed the country’s ‘anti-homophobia’ law, the country’s leading homosexualist lobby group, Arcigay, appears to be testing the legal waters. Together with The Omphalos Association and Arcilesbica Perugia, Arcigay has launched a complaint, called a ‘denunzia,’ of ‘homophobia’ that they allege was committed during a religious education class at the Liceo Classico Mariotti, a university preparatory high school, in the Umbrian town of Perugia.”

“Washington state judge faces formal reprimand for refusing to officiate same-sex ‘weddings’”
October 8, 2013
“A Washington state judge has been officially reprimanded by the Judicial Conduct Commission after refusing to officiate same-sex weddings for what he said were ‘philosophical and religious reasons.’ Thurston County Superior Court Judge Gary Tabor first came under scrutiny by the Commission after Washington voters approved a measure late last year authorizing same-sex ‘marriage’ in the state. Immediately prior to the law’s taking effect, in a private meeting between judges and court personnel, Tabor had expressed discomfort with the idea of officiating gay nuptials. One of the attendees later leaked his comments to the press, which reported them widely.”

So, all these folks are getting into trouble for resisting the homosexual tsunami, especially the push for marriage and adoption rights. Yet as I said, most homosexuals don’t even want marriage. And every once in a while some rather honest homosexual will come out and say so. I quote many of these folks in my book, but here is another one.

This in part is how one report discusses this: “An openly homosexual columnist in Ireland has written a piece blasting his country for considering same-sex marriage, warning the state has no business reinventing the family and undermining children’s ‘right’ to a mother and father.

“Paddy Manning, writing in the Irish Daily Mirror, tells of being arrested for hitting on a male police officer, but warns the solution to persecution of homosexuals isn’t to have government carve up traditional marriage. ‘Same-sex marriage is not some warm, fluffy equality bunny; it’s a bare-faced state power grab,’ Manning writes. ‘The state gets to entirely remake marriage, not as the man/woman/child model we’ve inherited from 10,000 years of history and across all cultures, but as an anything-goes irrelevant partnership agreement between adults.’

“Manning explains same-sex unions will render marriage ‘irrelevant’ because ‘for the first time, children and parenthood [will have] no place in marriage.’ ‘Only a man and a woman have children, despite every fantasy the gender-busters want us to believe,’ Manning writes. ‘Every child has a right to that natural life. Same-sex marriage asks us to ignore reality and children’s rights to a mother and father’….

“‘People get married for their own reasons, but we have marriage because marriage has a meaning and does a vital job – not just for individuals, but for society,’ Manning writes. ‘Claiming that equality demands that men and women be as interchangeable as Lego blocks shows you don’t understand men and women, marriage or much else.’

“Manning insists marriage isn’t just about two people who ‘love’ each other, but about ‘a man and a woman committing to making and raising children.’ When the government steps in and changes that, he reasons, the children will suffer.’ ‘We can ignore reality all we want, but the outcomes for children are not the same across all family models,’ Manning insists. ‘Marriage of a man and a woman gives children the best chance. That doesn’t mean there are not great parents in other circumstances, just that the weight of evidence is stacked against them’….

“Dr John Murray of The Iona Institute added, ‘This debate is really about the value we attach to a child having a mother and a father as distinct from two fathers or two mothers. … If we redefine marriage, we will be saying as a society that these things don’t matter. We will also be saying that the sexual union of a man and a woman isn’t different in any socially significant way from that of two men or two women. Given that only the former can result in children, this is plainly untrue. Different things should be treated in different ways. This does not violate the principle of equality’.”

It sure is nice when the occasional homosexual activist comes along and spills the beans. And I am more than happy to share their words far and wide. As I say, most homosexuals do not want marriage, but many are happy to push it knowing that the heavy hand of the law can then be used against all naysayers.

My next book on homosexuality will have plenty more such cases of homosexual thuggery. It makes for depressing reading, but it is necessary reading nonetheless.

  1. Why is there almost NO media attention to the health issues of the same-sex propaganda??
    see: The rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men was 44 times that of other men and 40 times that of women, and primary and secondary syphilis rates were 46 times that of other men and 71 times that of women, according to data presented at the 2010 National STD Prevention Conference in Atlanta. http://www.infectiousdiseasenews.com/view.aspx?rid=61780 CDC Analysis Provides New Look at Disproportionate Impact of HIV and Syphilis Among U.S. Gay and Bisexual Men

  2. Wow, some pretty bad statistics there, Johannes!

    It’s unbelievable how much things have changed in the power balance in only a few decades, Bill.

  3. Oh dear! The world is going upside down! As Christians, we have to armour ourselves with the word of The Lord and fave persecutions! Emmanuel.

  4. Keep praying and fasting people. The Victory has been declared, whether I see it in my lifetime or not. “The way of the wicked will perish” is a concept repeatedly stated in Scripture. I am reminded of the verse “Don’t fret because of evil men..”. Often in scripture it doesn’t take the majority praying and repenting for the tide to turn (Daniel, Nehemiah). It seems to me that a battle can be won with a core group of people consistently praying and fasting and repenting on behalf of the majority.

  5. I agree Sharon. This matter really does require much seeking of The Lord for people to find the truth. And thanks to Bill for keeping on keeping on.

  6. Thank you for being a true watchman and not being a people pleaser 🙂 even when society is going downhill and rapaciously opposing biblical and traditional values, but a man of and for God.
    Makes me wonder how they will edit and present the outcomes of the children of same sex couples in tomorrow’s ABC2 ‘ Growing Up Gayby ‘ on at 9:30.

  7. Bill, what would happen in any, or all, of these cases if the accused just defied the law, and more specifically the court order? Just told them all to get lost?
    Laws to uphold some “offended party”, where truth is no defence, are surely just junk law. If I was asked to be a witness in such a case I could swear not “to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”, but instead “that the evidence I shall give shall hurt no-one’s feelings”! Try that for size!
    And if I am held in contempt of court I could reply that the court by enforcing such laws has brought contempt upon itself, without any help from me. It would be an honour to be in contempt of such an inherently contemptible institution.
    Murray R Adamthwaite

  8. Bill,
    What I posted above was not mere idle verbiage; I meant what I said about defiance of the law. When, and how, does it become necessary to defy the law and its institutions, what with all these laws around the globe restricting religious freedom because of someone or other’s perceived offence?
    My view is that such “laws” make a mockery and farce of the rule of law, and all around us we see the rule of law being trampled under foot.
    Could you proffer some of your wisdom on this matter?

    Murray R. Adamthwaite

  9. Bill,
    Sorry, but the articles to which you refer deal in general terms with the issue of civil disobedience, and I both remember reading them at the time, and concur with your sentiments.
    What we have now, however, is a new notion in the history of jurisprudence, i.e. laws concerned to protect people from “offence” (whatever that is). Under this, truth is not an issue, but only that someone “feels offended”. Now I maintain that this sort of thing is junk law, and as such has brought our whole legal system into utter disrepute and contempt. Where does this sort of thing leave the Christian? How should he regard this type of law, and if arraigned under it how should he respond? Your previous comments do not really grapple with this new issue, as I see it.
    Murray R. Adamthwaite

  10. Thanks Murray. These sorts of laws are bad laws and we should seek to repeal them. As to responding, what the two Dannys did is appropriate: refuse to comply and refuse to apologise. Then appeal the case, while praying constantly.
