Bryan Adams Hypocrisy

First and foremost, this is a calculated effort on behalf of specific and powerful anti-gay groups to persecute LGBT Americans, the fact that SCOTUS ruled in favor of marriage equality just gives their plan momentum, the backlash from that is NOT the root cause. (1)

Bryan Adams, Springsteen and Ringo Star are decoys, the same argument could be made of many of the businesses and corporations that are also pulling out and cancelling events in these states. Adams et al., are just easy targets for the simpletons who are too lazy to operate a search engine. I think the only thing special about them is that what they say can reach a wider audience -- in the sense that celebrities tend to be put on a pedestal.

I read about Adams the other night, so the fact that they’re even making these connections (with the Mid East) means they’re already listening to and believing all the anti-gay talking points that the haters want them to think -- they’ve drunk the Kool-Aid.

And what if Mississippi passed Sharia law, or that women had to wear burkas, or any other law that curtailed the rights of heterosexuals? Holding hands in public maybe? Hey, it’s just religious freedom, remember? Then whose side would they be on if these celebrities spoke out? I think we know the answer to that question, so why is it ok to discriminate against LGBT people and not heterosexuals?

Heterosexual-supremacism, the contraction of which is heterosupremacism, just as racism is the contraction of racial supremacism. This has nothing to do with religion and it has nothing to do with “protecting” women in bathrooms. Transgender women using the men’s room is guaranteed to cause assaults and many transgender men have beards and mustaches, are they really supposed to use the ladies room? Isn’t that exactly what they’re trying to prevent?

Their goal is to portray those who are transgender as predators. Is each establishment with restrooms going to be assigned the genital police? These laws will only punish those who appear to be transgender - whether they are or not.

As far as discriminating against gay Americans goes, *religious freedom* my arse. “He made them male and female” they say. Does that mean they endorse the incestuous marriages God DESIGNED for their children? Further, all of the gay bashing verses in the Bible except Romans refer only to men and therefore are not about homosexuality as women are gay too, but that doesn’t stop them from pretending otherwise. And if you hear them use Leviticus to bash gays then they endorse Leviticus including the part that endorses the genocide of gay men (Lev 20:13). Corinthians is another one - only about men. Same with Sodom and Gomorrah, 1) only about men, 2) They wanted to rape Lot’s guests because they wanted to emasculate them, 3) the hero of the story, Lot, offered up his virgin daughters to be gang raped in lieu of his guests getting raped, 4) they turned down the daughters because gang raping women in those days was an everyday occurrence - ho hum.

Romans however speaks of both men and women WHO USED TO BE HETEROSEXUAL. I’ve yet to meet a gay person who “used to be” heterosexual. In denial, yes, hetero, no. Worse than that, the entire reason these men and women supposedly “turned” gay was because they rebelled against God. If that were how things worked, then every sociopath would be gay and every gay Christian would turn straight.

Being gay didn’t make the list of Commandments but adultery did -- something Jesus defined as divorce and remarriage, which is a form of unrepentant adultery. (2)

As supremacists, the first love of haters is pride, namely the IDOL of pride. The first commandment in the Old Testament says “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” The first commandment given by Jesus in the New Testament is “Love God with all your heart, mind and soul.”

They worship the idol of pride and love superiority with all their heart, mind and soul, breaking the First Commandment in both the OT and NT, hence, they are devoid of any and all legitimate religious standing. So anyone complaining of infringement on their religious liberties is full of it.

And so what if they think being gay is a choice or that being transgender is nothing but pretend. We are American citizens and we pay taxes. Taxes that help keep those businesses in business. Our Taxes help pay for the streets, sidewalks, public transit, the police, fire departments, FEMA, a host of municipal services and the salaries of many of these people that make it even possible for them to have a businesses, and especially county clerks who provide marriage licenses. Which makes the targeted discrimination of LGBT Americans a matter of THEFT! And makes public accommodations a fundamental matter of civil rights.

Those who complain about how our fight for equality is “in their face” or being “shoved down their throat” have it ass backwards. If they’d stop passing these discrimination/persecution laws, we wouldn’t need to be “in their face” about it. It’s also too bad they’re not intelligent enough to realize that fighting for gay/LGBT equality requires the use of the words “gay” and “LGBT.”

As an aside, if it should come up, and I don’t particularly care for pride parades, they’re too sexed up for me, but pride used in that sense is not of the supremacist kind, is of the self-worth dignity kind and are meant to relay the message that “you’re not going to make us feel ashamed of ourselves anymore!”

Understand what I’ve written before using it, otherwise they will walk all over you with their anti-gay talking points, all of which are irrelevant, in fact, get used to using the word irrelevant. It shuts down their irrelevant talking points without you having to explain why. It’s short for “It’s not up for discussion,” and you can then steer the conversation back to the reality of the situation. Again, understand it before using it, make it your own, use your own words to describe what I’ve written.

I’ve been at this for over ten years so I wrote this off the top of my head and I’m sure there’s still some holes in it so let me know. And if you hear any horror stories about poor innocent bakers or others put out of business because of the evil gays and their “godless agenda”, assume it’s a lie and Google it.

Don’t memorize what I’ve written, memorize the meaning.

What “Religious Freedom” Laws Really Mean and the Anti-LGBT Groups Behind Them

This link goes to a synopsis of the material, at the bottom is a link to the well organized and contextualized information. Text in brackets is mine:
"Across the country, these opponents of LGBT equality are working to persuade state legislatures to pass laws known as Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRAs) — statutes that ostensibly allow individuals to deny goods and services to [TAX PAYING] LGBT people on the basis of their religious beliefs. ... legitimizing the very idea that LGBT rights threaten religious liberty."

This link goes straight to the data:

Trump on Marriage Equality

This is old news by now but it’s new to me, I hadn’t yet seen him confronted with the question yet.

Donald Trump has said on more than one occasion that his "favorite" book is the Bible. He has been married three times, that’s twice remarried. Here’s how his “favorite” book defines remarriage:

-Mark 10:11 -- Jesus: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her."
-Luke 16:18 -- Jesus: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery"
-Matthew 19:9 -- Jesus: "I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery."
For the record, “traditional marriage” is code speak for straight love being superior to gay love. CNN interview on June 28, 2015:
JAKE TAPPER Let’s talk about same-sex marriage. You said a few years ago that you were evolving on the issue, where are you?
HETEROSUPREMACIST UNREPENTANT ADULTERER DONALD TRUMP (according to his own beliefs): I’m for traditional marriage, it is changing rapidly.
TAPPER: But what do you say to a lesbian who’s married or a gay man who’s married who says ‘Donald Trump, what’s traditional about being married three times?’
TRUMP: Well, they have a very good point, but you know, I’ve been a very hard working person, actually I have a great marriage, I have a great wife now and my two wives were very good and I don’t blame them, but I was working twenty two hours a day…
TAPPER: I’m not asking you to explain your divorces.
TRUMP: I blame myself because my business was so powerful for me…
TAPPER: But what do you say to a lesbian or a gay man who are married?
TRUMP: I really don’t say anything, I’m just for traditional marriage.
As with presidential candidate Ben Carson, they say his appeal is that he is not part of the political process, but I don’t believe for a second that the Bible is his “favorite” Book, nor do I think he really cares whether gay couples can legally wed or not (he must have gay friends), but he has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that he’s a misogynist and a racist (“Mexicans are rapists and murderers). It is my belief that he’s just playing to the amoral base of the Republican party, but we can now add heterosupremacist to his list of themed hate speech.

So then would straight marriage be ‘sarriage’?

Stone thrower Pat Fagan
Right Wing Watch (9/10/15):

"FRC Official: Call Gay Marriage 'Garriage' And Lesbian Marriage 'Larriage'"

Fagan: "If you want a generic homosexual marriage it's 'harriage.' But getting these words into use is key. And that will take time, but whomever holds the language ultimately holds the whole game."

RWW video; Fagan: "To concede the word marriage, is to … concede a huge amount of the playing field."
It's a tack used by those who're trying to present their sense of superiority in a more polite fashion, usually saying "I don't mind if gay couples have all the rights of marriage - just don’t ‘call’ it marriage."

Working for the Family Research Council, a hate group, the first half of that wouldn't apply to him, he's trying to start a supremacist meme, albeit masked.

Just remember, whenever you hear that, they’re in the same supremacist hateboat as the “God hates fags” crowd, the only difference is that SOME of them may be able to be reached, but so far I haven't had any luck.

Free will is an illusion

A few days ago I said this, somewhere:

“Free Will -- You have an infinite number of thoughts to choose from. ”

Today I relay this:
Free Will Is Fantasy

Within time-space, the very constraints thereof preclude and such theory. At physical birth, we are bound not only by our previous experience, whatever it may be, but by the genetic structure of the physical body we inhabit. From that point on, we have no choice but to be bonded into the flesh for that lifetime, long or short. We are bound to maintain and operate our physical bodies within the limitation they impose. The set and setting of our physical existence is controlled, initially at least, by others. What remains, colored and modified as it is, might be considered free will.

Exercising this upon another only increases the [karmic] load. Off-loading is accomplished by maximizing this remainder in nonphysical areas and accepting without emotion the limitations so imposed.

~Robert Monroe
Ultimate Journey
Now I have to reconcile the two.

Unrecognized and therefore unintended influences that make up the matrices of my mind, or use it as an excuse to believe that the devil made me do it.

…hmm, be a good person or blame the devil… I suppose I could do both. It might be a little confusing at first but I think I could pull it off.

I was reading some news briefs over at Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters. Here’s a couple snippets followed by my always and ever special commentary.

AFA's daily prayer equates homosexuality with incest, bestiality, pedophilia:
We know that much sexual sin has been committed in our community and nation. We repent of all acts of incest, adultery, homosexuality, pedophilia, and bestiality. We acknowledge that such things are detestable to you, and that they are perversions of your intentions for us. We acknowledge that we profane your name and only defile ourselves through our sexual sin.
Randy Thomasson Claims LGBT-Inclusive Schools Make Students 'Enemies of God':
Right Wing Watch: [Randy] Thomasson said that students and families have become the victims of a “perverse, unnatural, unbiblical, unhealthy, tyrannical sexual agenda” advanced by the state government and LGBT rights advocates who seek to eliminate free speech and religious liberties.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~

They don’t even believe in the Bible.

First of all, nowhere in the Bible is homosexuality condemned. All of the so called gay-bashing Bible verses refer to males exclusively, except for Romans:
Romans 1:26 Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
People who are born gay, like me, never “exchanged” our orientation, so it’s not referring to gay people. But the haters cling to verses like that so they can continue justifying their anti-gay bashing as a “deeply held religious belief.” If you click on that link, though, read a few sentences down and you’ll get an ultra-accurate description of these christian haters. Second, God’s “original design” for family included incest -- as per Adam and Eve’s children being “fruitful and multiplying.”

Third, God explicitly approves of polygamy.
God: I gave your master’s house to you, and your master’s wives into your arms. … I will take your wives and give them to one who is close to you, and he will sleep with your wives in broad daylight.
Fourth, Jesus clearly defined divorce and remarriage as adultery:

Mark 10:11-12: He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. 12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.”
Of course, that kind of adultery is welcomed with open arms by these faux-faith anti-gay cherry-picking cafeteria-christians. It makes their crocodile cries of “religious persecution” all the more irrational -- you can’t be persecuted for something you don’t believe in in the first place.

Heterosupremacist hypocrites to the core.

Well a BIG FU2, Texas!

"Texas GOP Platform"
Reparative Therapy- "We recognize the legitimacy and efficacy of counseling, which offers reparative therapy and treatment for those patients seeking healing and wholeness from their homosexual lifestyle. No laws or executive orders shall be imposed to limit or restrict access to this type of therapy."
That was the "punchline," this was the set up:
Homosexuality- "Homosexuality is a chosen behavior that is contrary to the fundamental unchanging truths that have been ordained by God in the Bible, recognized by our nation’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans. Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle, in public policy, nor should family be redefined to include homosexual couples. We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin. Additionally, we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values."
40 pages, and a disparate amount of them devoted to smearing gays:
Equality of All Citizens- "We deplore all discrimination. We also deplore forced sensitivity training and urge repeal of any mandate requiring it. We urge immediate repeal of the Hate Crimes Law. Until the Hate Crimes Law is totally repealed, we urge the Legislature to immediately remove the education curriculum mandate and the sexual orientation category in said Law."
It is clear that they hate their own LGBT citizenry, it's just too bad they can't admit it.
