Who are the Haters? The Hate-Filled Homosexuals!

Let's see.... If a customer came to a bakery run by a Muslim and asked for a cake depicting an insult to Mohammed would the owner be within his rights to refuse to decorate it? Suppose someone wanted a disgusting sexual message on a cake for a bachelor party or a cake insulting mothers for Mothers Day? Could the owner say no? What about a misogynist message? How about a cake celebrating 9/11? Are there no limits on what a customer wants?  Does the baker have to make and decorate the cake in all these circumstances? I'd say the answer is a no-brainer. Of course he doesn't!

But if a Christian
dares to refuse to make a cake celebrating the moral evil of same-sex marriage, (Yes, it is a moral evil.) or a pizza parlor even hypothetically refuses to cater a same-sex wedding, the Christians get the "throw them to the lions" treatment. 

Here's the latest example of intolerant hatred by the homosexual crowd:

Gay-rights advocates torpedo GoFundMe campaign for Christian-owned bakery

This family has lost its business and is struggling to make ends meet while the hate-mongers continue to go after them with legal judgments that will financially destroy them. 

Free speech for Christians is in its death throes. How long before the homosexual activists demand that websites and blogs criticizing their behavior be shut down? 

Those who agree with the battering ram approach to Christian free speech are setting a precedent for their own speech to be denied. Remember pastor Martin Niemöller, the Protestant pastor, who famously described the Nazis' attacks:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
If you don't defend the free speech of Christians now, don't be surprised when your free speech rights are suppressed.

This is as inevitable as it is unsurprising.

We can hope that someone with the right technical savvy can start as "Christian" Crows Funding Site. Of course, once that happens the someone in FedGov will find a reason to shut it down. Then we'll be down to mailing cash to them until the USPS stops us...

You know what? I wish we'd stop all this dilly dallying and just get to the lions and stonings. I kinda feel like we're just waiting around for the REAL s___ to start up.

Dear Mary,

I do not know your address, so this is not related to the post who are the haters,

I just wanted to make sure you knew about this:

The priest who initiated the effort is from Arlington, so maybe you know him..
The more exposure, the better!

thank you, Anonymous. I do know Fr. Pokorsky and I will be promoting this. As soon as I saw the name I remembered the Credo organization he started. He's a great priest.

The problem here is that the "gay" (that means homosexual) community is not satisfied. For decades, they told us that they wanted to be just left alone and not harassed. Then they wanted domestic partnerships. Then they insisted on redefining marriage (and, for that matter, nature itself).

Any fool can see that this is all peripheral. What these folks really want is APPROVAL. They want every sector of society to slobber and fawn all over them about how wonderful it is that they are gay. And they also demand the silencing of any disagreement. Disagreeing with homosexuality is intolerable to them.

Now why, WHY does anyone have such an intense desire for approval? I would suggest it lies in a deep insecurity and an even deeper sense that no matter how much they manage to redefine societal standards, something is just not right in their lives.

What is the answer? Hating them is not. Being angry is not the answer either. We have to calmly and objectively name the problem for what it is and refuse to pander as the baker so courageously did.

Fr. Z had an even better suggestion: If they have a right to proudly proclaim their gayness, then we have a right to proudly proclaim our faith: Don't refuse them service--what's the point? Inform them that we will happily serve them because we are Christians. Let them know we will be at the reception wearing clothing and emblems that identify us as Catholics. Let them know that we will donate their fee to a pro-family organization and then take out an ad in the paper thanking them for their donation and letting the community know where that money went. We will love them with God's unconditional love and we can do so without changing who we are. They can "come out" as gay and we can "come out" as Catholics.

If we are the light of the world, why hide it under a bushel basket? Let's shine the light into the darkness!

I don't have any problem with gay people. Just as I don't care to watch some heterosexual couple slobber all over each other or tell me how great their sex life is, neither do I wish to hear about such personal stuff from gay people.

Ultimately, they wish to re-define Christianity. They can set up their fake churches and try, but they will never succeed in redefining the One, True Church. It just ain't gonna happen.

Fr. P is my pastor, and I've never been more proud of him (or many other people) in my life! He is indeed a great priest! Keep him and the other signatories in your prayers...they've painted pretty big bulls-eyes on their backs, but in the process, have had Tau marked on their foreheads (Ez 9:4)
