Homosexualists want anti-bullying legislation all over the fruited plain because, in their view, it is a criminal offense to push someone around because of their sexual orientation.
More evidence surfaces every day that they have forgotten to read their own memo. They have no hesitation in harassing, intimidating and punishing any heterosexual who dares to offer a word of criticism of homosexual behavior. They, in fact, are the ones who are perpetrating hate crimes on a daily basis.
Increasingly, this is becoming the issue: If homosexuals are to be protected from heterosexual bullies, the unanswered question is who will protect us from homosexual bullies?
And bullies they are.
Case in point: homosexual bigots in South Africa managed to get a heterosexual columnist, Jon Qwelane, fined 100,000 Rands (about $15,000 US) for doing nothing more than saying, “Gay is NOT okay.” Plus, he’s been ordered to apologize to the true bullies who mashed his face in the dirt.
He was convicted of “hate speech” (sic) by something called the Johannesburg Equality Court, whose view of “equality” evidently does not include heterosexuals and therefore doesn’t qualify as equality at all.
For telling the truth about homosexual conduct, Qwelane was convicted of propagating “hatred and harm,” even though he called for no violence whatsoever against gay folk. There was no word about the “hatred and harm” directed against Qwelane for saying something that civilized people have been saying since the dawn of time.
This sorry incident tells us two things: homosexualism will kill free speech, and homosexualists are bigots.
They are hate-mongering bigots who will trample on the free speech and religious liberty rights of any who get in their way. They’ll trample on their unalienable, God-given right to private property by plundering them with fines. And they will trample on their unalienable, God-given right to liberty by throwing them in jail whenever and wherever they can.
Our choice as a culture is clear: we must choose between homosexuality and liberty, because homosexual bigots won’t allow us to have both. As for me and my house, we choose liberty.
