My Feelings on Hatred Towards the Gay Community
In order to follow up on my promise to myself to stand up for my own values, I am making another post. What ? Another one so soon ? What about the one or two blog posts a year I usually do ?
I saw someone spewing unmentionable hate towards the gay community the other day. I wont quote the source as I don't think this person deserves any more attention. However, I did want to bring attention my response. Even if I am the only person that ever actually reads my blog, I want to recall how I felt when I wrote this response. This awful woman was saying that anyone who was gay or sympathized with the gay community was satanic.
To be satanic one must also be willing to believe in the christian religion. If you dont believe in the christian god, you don't believe in satan either. The two go hand in hand. I for one think both are silly boogey man stories perpetrated to keep an increasingly ignorant populace under control.
Christians seem really obsessed with satan. People that are obsessed with something, generally are secretly wishing to be a part of it. Case in point as it pertains to Homophobia, George Rekers, Ted Haggard etc.. etc..There is a direct corelation between how much hate these people spew and how much they really want to just dive in and get some gay nightime goodies for themselves.
"In 1996, three researchers from the University of Georgia published a study in the Journal of Abnormal Psychologyabout the links between homophobia and homosexual arousal. The authors,
Henry E. Adams, Lester W. Wright, Jr., and Bethany A. Lohr, started with 35 straight men identified as homophobic and 29 straight men that were not. Both groups were shown heterosexual, lesbian, and gay male porn while their erectile responses were measured. 'Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli,' reported the researchers.
Now I am willing to benignly smile and nod to people that actually believe the christian myths as long as they don't do any actual harm to others. I personally am a straight white female adult. I think everyone has the right to their opinion even christians as long as they don't try to shove it down the throats of those that disagree with them. Once they start interfering with the rights of others in this country and harass, demean and otherwise torture them, than I am gonna step up and say it. You are wrong, you are more evil than anything you accuse them of, and you should be stopped.
Reading back over this, the only thing I would change is the part about being stopped. Yes I think the Christian right should be stopped. I was not very clear tho. They should be stopped non -violently. I am a non violent person. I believe in using your wits rather than your fists. So this is me, using my non- violent wit to skewer the ignorance of the christian right . Stay tuned . These guys have provided me with so much material, I could be writing non -violently for years.
