I have a problem with the Leftist Utopians. Leftist Utopians feel it is fine to bash
Judaism and Christianity if we do not march lock step with the most radical elements
of the Gay agenda. They never do seem to get around to criticizing Muslims for advocating killing Gays. Remember axiom 4 .Muslims are not expected to conform to the
norms of human rights. Thus any critique of their behavior is racist although they do not constitute a race. Thus if a Jewish School denies the right of Gays to be Cantors is it much more important then the norms of the PA that kill Gays.
I am not a Christian but I have respect and admiration for the Christian faith. I understand the deep impact of Christianity on Western Civilization. Western Civilization has often sadly used my people as a speedbump on the path to enlightenment. Those who persecuted Jews in the name of Jesus acted contrary to his message. Yet I also have zero problem with denominations that say I am going to hell
as a non Christian. I would also have zero problem when an Imam says the same thing of compares me to an Ape. My problem start when clergymen start advocating violence.
The problem is that alot of people on the left feel that they have the right to determine what is in scriptures . When religious people do not agree with their interpretation ,they feel they have a license to say whatever they wish about the Pope etc. This rationale is faulty and bigoted.
I was on another board and another Utopian Leftist not 167 was on a tear on Christianity. He blamed the Holocaust and the fall of the Roman Empire on Christianity. I pointed out that I lived amongst Holocaust survivors and never heard
this from them. He went on to call me historically ignorant. The truth is I have likely read seven books to each one he has read on the subject of the Holocaust.
Admitedly like 167 this critic is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. I do hope that his first language is not English. I also never thought I could find a person who seriously give me a run for the title worst speller in the USA. This person shall
be nicknamed 170.
" Bush lied because most people like him think everything can be solved through guns
Religion is not meant to be PC and all religions have a natural tendency to portray
the faithful more favorably. Thus I have zero problem with religocentrism as long as there is Civil law and no violence.
The question is why do the PC brigades feel it is their right to tell me what the Torah says about Gays ? The Old Testament is quite clear on this subject .Does this
mean that I approve of discrimination against Gays ?
I accept and am thankful for the cleavage of Civil Law from religious law. Gays should have the same rights as everyone else within reason. This does not entitle them to superceede theological laws they deem unfair. Thus Gays are not entitled to be cantors or Rabbis in an Orthodox Temple. They can do so in a reformed temple if this is their calling.
The comparison with racial and ethnic minorities is invalid. I also hope that a gay gene is never found. This would lead to the possibility of children being aborted due to orientation . I am pro choice but that would be evil. It would also lead to the possibility of potential cures and that is uneccessary. It would lead to the possible labeling of gays as genetic defectives or freaks. 167 is a freak but that is because he functions without a brain. The safest view for society is to view it as a matter of peference. I prefer petite brunette females , the next guy prefers redheaded females and Clive likes mediteranean men. If we all desired the same type
life would be boring and 9/10 of us would never see any romance. I honestly do not care what someones sexual peference is . Does my love of pettite brunettes make me a better person then 167 who is gay ? 167 gayness tells us zero about him by itself.
His stupidity , arrogance and assorted bigotries tell us all we need to know.
The question of who is forcing their values on whom is not readily apparent. I am all
for teaching children to respect everyone including Gays. I am against the teaching of sexual techniques. A perfect example is on a recent post this website
http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/ . scroll down to I am not a homophobe. Do kids realy have to learn about fisting and watersports ? This material crosses the line of good taste and is inapropriate.
Respect for everyone includes religious people. The fact that their religious views
do not agree with your politics does not create open season for bigotry. I do draw the line when violence is urged religiously. Human rights are civil matters they should be discussed sans religion . Most religions accept a separation of Church and state. These left wing utopian blowhards hurt their cause each and every time they
go on a anti-religious rant.
