BlackNews.com - True Intentions of Gay Activists Now Revealed Some excerpts that are true to the bone: For several years, I have observed the growing influence of gay activists, unsure of their true intentions. Their tactics initially piqued my interest about 15 years ago, when they began comparing their historical plight with that of African Americans. This comparison was absurd on its face and I wondered how they could have the temerity to make such a claim. After all, African Americans are the descendants of millions of Black Africans who were brought to these shores in chains, dehumanized and sold as chattel for 250 years with no rights whatsoever, then subjected to another hundred years of, at best, second class citizenship. Homosexuals have suffered no intergenerational discrimination, have never been denied the right to vote or own property, and can disguise their sexual preference for a lifetime, if necessary. Comparing the history of gays to that of African Americans is like comparing the Saint Valentine's Day Massacre to the Holocaust. And.. Another falsehood told by gay lobbyists is that the Bible does not address the issue of homosexuality. This cleverly-crafted claim often succeeds because gay activists realize that few people actually read the Bible in depth, even those who are regular churchgoers. It is true that the word "homosexual" does not appear in the Bible for obvious reasons (the word was not in use at the time that the Bible was written). However, both the Old and New Testaments discuss sexual acts between those of the same gender and, in every instance, these acts are described in negative terms; in other words, these are acts in which believers are admonished not to engage. One reason why gay lobbyists have been so successful in their quest to silence the public is that their amen corner, the mainstream media, has completely abdicated its role as an independent observer and has now become an ardent cheerleader for their cause. Watch any so-called debate on the topic of gay marriage on programs like MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews, CNN's Larry King Live or Anderson Cooper 360 and it is obvious there is a tag team with the host and the gay marriage advocate on one side, and the supporter of traditional marriage on the other. Many reporters and commentators automatically label anyone who is opposed to gay marriage as "homophobic." Frank Rich of the New York Times wrote a recent column in which he described those against gay marriage as "spreading the poisons of bigotry and fear." In fact, anyone who gets in gay advocates' way is subject to public ridicule, demotion or ostracism, and there have been a number of recent victims. Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was reportedly denied the Miss U.S.A. crown in this year's pageant because she honestly answered a direct question about gay marriage, indicating that she believed marriage should be between a man and a woman. Perez Hilton, one of the pageant's judges who is himself gay, called Prejean a "dumb bitch" for her support of traditional marriage, as if the nationwide legalization of gay marriage is a foregone conclusion. In fact, a recent CNN poll showed that 55 percent of Americans oppose gay marriage, so Prejean's stance is clearly within the mainstream of public opinion. And lastly and most importantly... Be on the lookout in the near future for gay activists' challenges to churches' tax exempt status for refusing to denounce their religious beliefs. Any religious leaders who are tapped for high-profile government positions will be subjected to a gay rights litmus test. Remember that the true goal is not equal rights; the ultimate objective is to bully, intimidate, subdue and control all opposition. The truth for sure.
