Another casualty of political correctness run amok and an overly powerful small group of vocal, intolerant proponents of a lifestyle outside the norm win another one. You are no longer allowed in the USA to hold an opinion or a belief that is different from the cultural elite.
Yes, I’m talking about the cancellation by HGTV of the “Flip it Forward” show because the twin brothers said a few years back they believed in traditional marriage. Oh my what a crime! Jason and David Benham are two more people who are being demonized because they don’t drink the Kool-Aid!
The gay agenda is the new “Evangelists” of the country. Years ago Kinsey did a study that has now been largely discarded and replaced by more accurate studies. Contemporary research in a less homophobic environment has counter intuitively resulted in lower estimates rather than higher ones. The Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law, a gay and lesbian think tank, released a study in April 2011 estimating based on its research that just 1.7 percent of Americans between 18 and 44 identify as gay or lesbian, while another 1.8 percent — predominantly women — identify as bisexual. Far from underestimating the ranks of gay people because of homophobia, these figures included a substantial number of people who remained deeply closeted, such as a quarter of the bisexuals. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey of women between 22 and 44 that questioned more than 13,500 respondents between 2006 and 2008 found very similar numbers: Only 1 percent of the women identified themselves as gay, while 4 percent identified as bisexual.
So, if 2% of the population identify themselves as homosexual why are the views they hold more important than anyone else’s views? Why is the agenda pushed regularly on a large percentage of TV situation, drama shows. Why can’t I spend one day without feeling like there is a pushy salesman at my door and I am being forced to buy?
I say let them get married, do whatever stuff they do in their bedrooms and do not let them dictate to the remainder of society what we can believe, say and practice! Gays have the right to disagree with me and I have the right to disagree with them. But it is equally wrong for homosexuals to judge other’s who disagree with them, just as they do not want to be judged for their choices.
My belief is God lets us all choose whatever path we want to take in life. He loves us all equally though he doesn’t always approve of our choices. Jesus died for all of us. The Bible says each of us will give an account for OURSELVES to God. I propose we live and let live. Have honest discussions and debates without demonizing and name calling and let God sort it out in the end! Stop trying to silence anyone who disagrees. That makes us a totalitarian state!
