How you can live in a thought-police culture
by Tim Wildmon, AFA PresidentJune 10, 2014
Straight America is scared to death of offending or potentially offending gay, lesbian and transgender people and their powerful movement. It's really embarrassing to watch. They say "Jump!" and most Americans say, "How high?" Sometimes they just say, "Ju..." and the straight people start doing jumping jacks as fast as they can to show the world they are not homophobic, which is the unforgiveable sin in today's society.
An example of this was the reaction by some to Michael Sam's mouth to mouth kiss of his lover on EPSN after he was recently drafted by the St. Louis Rams. Sam, who earlier this year announced to the world he is homosexual, was a standout defensive player for the Missouri Tigers.
Sam and his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano, decided to go "in your face," both to themselves (literally) and to those watching the draft on television including millions of young boys no doubt. After first kissing without debris, Sam then decided to put some cake in his mouth and go back after Vito for some more affection.
It was gross. But then I'm an old-school prude who doesn't believe men should be having sex with other men, so that is the reaction you would expect from people like me. I believe that kind of behavior is immoral, unhealthy and unnatural. If people want to live this lifestyle, that is their choice, but this idea of forcing people who disagree with it to applaud or else be shouted down, fined by the government or lose your job has gotten way out of hand.
Polar opposite my views would be the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and queer crowd, commonly referred to as GLBTQ. These are people who actively engage in those lifestyles and behaviors. They only represent about 3% of Americans, but they wield enormous influence on American popular culture. GLBTQ groups basically promote their cause all day, every day in the entertainment industry, in academia, in fashion, in the corporate world and in national politics. And know we can add sports. Disagree with GLBTQ in these areas and your life, as you know it, will be over. Just ask former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich who was forced out of his job when it was found out he had given $1,000 to support Prop 8 in California in 2008 which defined marriage as "one man and one woman." There was never any accusation that he had mistreated anyone in the workplace, it was just the mere fact that he held the same view that Barack Obama did (at the time) and seven million other Californians who voted to pass the amendment. That was enough to force him out, even though he founded the company.
Hollywood, as I said earlier, is a 24/7 promotion machine for GLBTQ. This year's Grammy Awards, for example, even took time out in the middle of the show to have Queen Latifah conduct a "wedding" ceremony for gays and lesbians.
Now it is clear the sports world is also bowing the knee to GLBTQ.
Miami Dolphins player Don Jones watched the two men go tongue to tongue on ESPN and tweeted that it was "horrible." For merely expressing a view that millions of Americans were also thinking, Jones was quickly fined by the NFL, suspended and sent to "educational training" camp.
As I say, when a person can be told he must go to "educational camp" or else lose his job, simply because he finds man-to-man mouth kissing on national television objectionable, we now live in a thought-police state.
We must get more Christians to wake up and fight back or we will lose our country.
One thing you can count one, American Family Association is doing a lot of good work, but we need your help today.
