For fighting for equal rights and to end religious discrimination, the LGBT community is, in Muehlenberg's twisted mind, "hateful" and "anti-Christian".
There are no greater haters than the homosexual activists,Muehlenberg rails. OK, Bill. So it's gay people who want to deny Christians the right to marry, is it? Oh, wait, no, that hatred is entirely the other way around. Name one gay person, Bill, who actively campaigns to ban Christian marriage? Yet you, and everyone you associate with gleefully does the reverse. But apparently it's the gay community who are the haters. Hmmm.
And all their hatred gives lie to the claim that they just want to be left alone to live in peace.Hmmm. Which gay manifesto have you been reading, Bill? LGBT people have plenty to offer society. We don't want to go and live in a cave somewhere, away from 'civilisation', whilst allowing heteros to live in peace without us spoiling everything for them. Would you say minorities like Christians want to be "left alone to live in peace"? No, so again, the hatred is all one way here.
The reason for Bill's ire this time is the anti-gay Indiana Religious Freedom bill, which, after two days of controversy, has already been amended.
The foaming at the mouth over the Indiana religious freedom law is a case in point. These guys have gone absolutely ballistic, showing just how much they are into tolerance, acceptance and diversity – the very things they scream about all the time.LOL. It's precisely because the LGBT community advocates tolerance and acceptance and diversity that this bill is being opposed, Bill! Are you such an idiot that you can't figure that out? If you can point out an LGBT-run service that turns away Christians because of their faith, then I would join you in saying that is reprehensible and socially unacceptable. It doesn't happen. What you want to see is the reverse, though. You want Christians to be able to turn away gay citizens with impunity. And when such moves are resisted, you claim it's all down to "hate". What a narrow, false and self-congratulatory view of the world you have, Bill. Plenty of people, gay and straight, could see the flagrant injustice of the Indiana bill and have come out in support of extending tolerance to everybody, not just to whomsoever bible-believing Christians wish to "tolerate". That is what tolerance means.
And as for his claim that it's the LGBT community who are guilty of hate, Bill round his article out by saying that his love and compassion for gay people extends to him saying to them that they could easily choose to be straight, and don't have to be gay at all. I have, and will continue to say to Christians, that what they believe is superstitious bullshit, and if they learned some science, history and philosophy, they could easily emancipate themselves from their childish beliefs and embrace reason and truth. I would not, however, dress this up as "love". And neither would you see it that way, Bill. So stick your "love" up where the sun don't shine, Bill, until you choke on it.
And let's not forget that Muehlenberg has stated that he wishes to see homosexuality criminalised throughout the West. He said the following about Singapore, which recently voted to retain the criminalisation of homosexuality.
It is still a socially conservative nation, and its Christians have had a healthy impact on the land. But as things really begin to hot up, including the increasing push by the homosexual activists, we will soon learn if Singapore stands strong, or simply follows the West down the tubes. Just over a month ago Section 377a of the Penal Code was upheld by a high-up appeals court, keeping homosexuality in check – for now at least. But as I have been warning, the activists never sleep, and will of course keep chipping away.So Bill sees gay people in Singapore campaigning for the right not to be locked up for loving somebody of the same sex essentially as pesky gay activists wanting to ruin a good thing. His idea of an ideal society is one in which LGBT people are bullied, criminalised, oppressed and silenced. So much for Bill's "love".
The "love" and "tolerance" continues in the comments. Here are just a few snapshots of typical Christian "love":
unhinged onslaught of the militants
more than a few people are getting absolutely fed up with these bullies
I don’t want to sound pedantic but paedophiles and those who suffer from same-sex attraction want us all to use the word gay without inverted commas. This is an attempt to normalise and legitimise their chosen behaviour.
pedantic pampered pooches
I always write same sex “marriage” too. The very idea is an absurdity as well as an abuse of language.
So the sodomites are showing their true rainbow shirt colours.Yeah, your website is oozing with love and tolerance, Bill! Why not just be honest and call your hate what it is: hate?
