Ducky44 saidWhen people are beig kicked out of there homes for standing by their faith as wrong as it is how is that right.
It's one thing to protest, but when it comes down to people losing their shelter and resulting to someone being hurt, how is that helping our cause it is not.
The ones getting kicked out of their homes are, apparently, Mormons who opposed Prop8 being ejected by Mormons who supported it. It's Mormon-on-Mormon oppression. As for the poor pro-8 Mormons who aren't getting to the church on time because of angry homos at the gates, serves them right. Damn right it's an eye for an eye-- that's the kind of old religious code they want
to live by-- as evidenced by their trying to impose religious dogma on state laws--, the same ideology that gives them a sense of entitlement to try to withhold equal marriage rights from same-sex couples. As long as they're getting their way (as with Prop8 passing) why shouldn't they reap what they sow? It's speaking to them in their own language, since they don't appear to understand the dialogue of modern human rights or equality.
Passivity didn't work. Conversation didn't work. Reason didn't work
. The pro8 religious nuts don't care about gays' rights or happiness, it's time to stop making excuses and apologies and to respond in kind. If the world they want to live in is one where a gay person's happiness has no value to them, it's fair
to show them a world where their happiness has no value to gay people. And maybe, hopefully, showing them what it's like will make them recant and think (for a change) about the consequences of their bigotry. The carrot didn't work-- they don't want to be our friends or respect us-- so it's time for the stick. If someone will never respect you, making them terrified of you is the only way to get them to back off.
Eventually you have to stop running from bullies and punch them in the nose, let them see their own blood and reconsider what it's worth to them to pick on you, because just taking it or pleading with them ad nauseum to leave you alone doesn't work
What's next killing every Morman in sight!
No, certainly not. Unless they start killing every gay person on-sight, and then it's self-defense.
Nature entitles us to one right and one right only, but it entitles every single animal on Earth to it: the right to defend one's self from attack. Every other right is granted arbitrarily by cultures or societies or 'the gods' or whatever, but in nature that's the only one.
