    Matt barber documents more militancy from the GayKK in Liberals’ Quest to ‘Rehabilitate’ ChristianLiberals’ Quest to ‘Rehabilitate’ Christian:

    “‘Gay pride’ necessitates anti-Christian hate. It must. ‘Gay marriage’ and other ‘sexual orientation’-based laws do violence to freedom and truth. They are the hammer with which the postmodern left intends to bludgeon bloody religious liberty and the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic.”

    Liberals are anything if not predictable.

    Chai Feldblum, President Obama’s EEOC commissioner – a lesbian activist who supports “plural marriage” – has called the clash between religious liberty and unfettered sexual license a “zero-sum game,” meaning that someone wins and someone loses.

    Guess who loses in Feldblum’s book? She has “a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win” and candidly admits that liberals “want to revolutionize societal norms.” She believes that “gay sex is a moral good.”

    Here’s the kicker. Read it closely:

    “‘The goal is never to shut down a business. The goal is to rehabilitate,’ Avakian said. ‘For those who do violate the law, we want them to learn from that experience and have a good, successful business in Oregon.’”

    George Orwell much?

    Get the not-so-thinly-veiled threat? Christians have a right to own a “successful business” in Oregon, so long as they don’t, well, be Christian – so long as they shelve their faith and submit to our ever-”progressive” government’s anti-Christian demands. “The goal is never to shut down a business,” but either you abandon the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic and dutifully observe postmodern sexual relativism, or government will shut you down in a Sodom and Gomorrah minute.

    Brad, Rachel, Laurel and the rest of you left-wing bullies need to get this straight (so to speak): The godless left has been trying to “rehabilitate” Christians for over 2,000 years. We haven’t caved yet. What makes you think we will now? Those of us who wish to remain obedient to God will not – indeed, cannot – accommodate you and play along with your sin-centric “gay marriage” delusion.

    I have sometimes thought what would be wrong having both a male and female spouse simultaneously, it is not real bigamy as only one wife or husband. As long as all agree or there is an amicable division of time.

    An Embarrassment to Higher Education
    By Mike Adams (Ph.D. criminology professor) 19 August 2013)

    Dear Edward:

    I want to take the time to thank you for writing and telling me that I should be fired from my position as a tenured professor because I am “the biggest embarrassment to higher education in America.” I also want to thank you for responding when I asked you exactly how you arrived at that conclusion. Your response, “because you insist that marriage requires one man and one woman,” was both helpful and concise.

    In fact, I’m going to describe the antics of ten professors, official campus groups, and invited campus speakers in North Carolina and let you decide which constitutes the biggest embarrassment to higher education.

    1. In the early spring semester of 2013, a women’s studies professor and a psychology professor at Western Carolina University co-sponsored a panel on bondage and S&M. The purpose of the panel was to teach college students how to inflict pain on themselves and others for sexual pleasure. When you called me the biggest embarrassment in higher education, you must not have known about their bondage panel. Maybe you were tied up that evening and couldn’t make it.

    8 A few years ago, a UNCW English professor posted nude pictures of under-aged girls as a part of an “art exhibit” in the university library. The Provost then ordered the nude pictures to be moved away from the library and into the university union. This decision was made after several pedophiles had previous been caught downloading child pornography in the university library just a few yards away from the location of the display. The English professor was incensed so she asked the Faculty Senate to censure the provost for violating her “academic freedom.” The faculty senate sided with the feminist professor. The provost was later pressured to leave the university.

    9. A different feminist professor at UNCW accused a male professor of putting tear gas in her office. She was later caught putting her mail in a microwave oven. She did this because she thought people were trying to poison her with anthrax and that the oven would neutralize the toxins. She was not placed on leave for psychiatric reasons. Instead, she was designated as the university’s official “counter terrorism” expert.

    10 And then there is Mike Adams. He thinks marriage is between a man and a woman.

    Quotes from Camille Paglia:
    • I am troubled by the provincialism and amorality of the gay world and as a lesbian, I'm sick and tired of the gay rights movement being damaged by the cowardly incapacity for self-examination of many gay men.
    • History shows that male homosexuality, which like prostitution flourishes with urbanization and soon becomes predictably ritualized, always tends toward decadence.
    • Homosexuality is not ‘normal’. On the contrary it is a challenge to the norm...Nature exists whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction. … No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous … homosexuality is an adaptation, not an inborn trait. …
    • I have written repeatedly about my theory that homosexuality is an adaptation, rather than an innate trait, and that it is reinforced by habit. With its cant terms of ‘oppression’ and ‘bigotry’, gay activism, encouraged by the scientific illiteracy of academic postmodernism, wants to deny that there is a heterosexual norm.

    Must be a ‘homophobe’.

    Shouldnt you first resolve whether you believe gay people have a missing chromosome ?

    Im surprised you care so much so suddenly.

    AC
    I checked it up last night and the latest word goes something like the woman's chromosome may prevent the males chromo from operating, the tests were done on siblings who were gays. So the mother sort of determines if the son is gay, but otherwise I think the father determines the gender of the offspring.

    I have a closish friend who is transgender, a cross dresser (that makes two actually) and we enjoy each others company. I can make him laugh.

    GayKK shuts down Christian bakery, including threats to the children

    A family-owned Christian bakery, under investigation for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, has been forced to close its doors after a vicious boycott by militant homosexual activists.

    Sweet Cakes By Melissa posted a message on its Facebook page alerting customers that their Gresham, Ore. retail store would be shut down after months of harassment from pro-gay marriage forces.

    Within days, militant homosexuals groups launched protests and boycotts. Klein told me he received messages threatening to kill his family. They hoped his children would die.

    The LGBT protestors then turned on other wedding vendors around the community. They threatened to boycott any florists, wedding planners or other vendors that did business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa.

    "That tipped the scales," Klein said. "The LGBT activists inundated them with phone calls and threatened them. They would tell our vendors, 'If you don't stop doing business with Sweet Cakes By Melissa, we will shut you down.'"

    To make matters worse, the Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries announced last month they had launched a formal discrimination investigation against the Christian family.

    Commissioner Brad Avakian told The Oregonian that he was committed to a fair and thorough investigation to determine whether the bakery discriminated against the lesbians.

    "Everybody is entitled to their own beliefs, but that doesn't mean that folks have the right to discriminate," he told the newspaper. "The goal is to rehabilitate. For those who do violate the law, we want them to learn from that experience and have a good, successful business in Oregon."

    In other words, Christians who live and work in Oregon must follow man's law instead of God's law. But in a show of benevolence, the state is willing to rehabilitate and reeducate Christian business owners like the Kleins.

    Klein said it's becoming clear that Christians do not have the "right to believe what we believe."

    In other words, gay rights trump religious rights.

    Aaron and Melissa Klein tell me they will continue to bake wedding cakes from their home. He's already taken a full-time job to pay the bills and feed their five children.

    Mrs. Klein told television station KPTV her philosophy remains unchanged by recent events.

    "The Bible tells us to flee from sin," she said. "I don't think making a cake for it helps. I guess in my mind I thought we lived in a lot nicer of a world where everybody tolerated everybody."

    The plight of the Klein family exposes the true nature of the left. Those who preach tolerance and diversity are the least tolerant and the least diverse of all.

    Sounds like they should have welcomed and wanted a boycott by homosexuals; isn't that their dream?

    If that were all it was, then of course people should be free to withold custom. But the al Gayda thugs also bullied other stores who did business with the store in question, and got the iron fist of government involved.

    Kevin Rudd delivers same-sex smackdown on Q&A
    The Age
    3.9.13
    ...When asked on ABC's Q&A on Monday night how he could claim to be a Christian but keep "chopping and changing" his beliefs on gay marriage, Mr Rudd said it was "just wrong" to think people choose their sexuality.

    "They are gay if they are born gay," he said bluntly.

    "You don't decide at some later stage in life to be one thing or the other. It is how people are built and therefore the idea that this is somehow an abnormal condition is just wrong, I don't get that. I think that is just a completely ill-founded view."...

    Evidently LE's standards for a smackdown are desperate if he uses this about-to-be loser as his "authority". Anyone with discernment greater than that of an Alzheimeric australopithecine realized that KRudd's profession of Christianity was a sham, designed to win over those gullible fools of the soi-disant Australian Christian Lobby.

    There is one born every minute, isn't there.

    Sorry to break it to you Lonesome Earl, but your hero Kevin Rudd has no principles, he just says what he thinks will get him votes.

    And even in the section you quoted - how is that an answer to the question? If you carefully read your own post, you will notice that Rudd was asked about his chopping and changing. A few weeks ago, when he held different opinions about gay marriage, did he believe that people choose their sexuality?
