The American Family Association, run by the elderly Don Wildmon and heir to the bigotry throne Tim, has moved into 21st century gay-bashing, with its blog Focal Point. It's a poorly designed attempt to pull in some younger anti-gay sheep to fleece, but it still turns out drivel that is completely batsh*t.
Look at this column by Bryan Fischer, "Homosexual agenda or the Constitution: take your pick because you can't have both." That headline is all you need to know to watch dead ahead for a break with reality based thinking.
The homosexual agenda represents a clear and present danger to virtually every fundamental right given to us by our Creator and enshrined for us in our Constitution.
Start with freedom of religion and freedom of speech, the first two of our inalienable rights secured for us in the Bill of Rights.
As a culture, we must choose between the homosexual agenda or the Constitution because we can't have both.
Further proof comes from the abjectly pathetic decision of the chaplains' office at Andrews Air Force Base to rescind a long-standing invitation to Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council. Perkins had been invited to give a non-political talk at a prayer luncheon on the base yesterday, but was abruptly dis-invited for one simple reason: he supports the current law which makes homosexuals ineligible for service in the United States military.
Does anyone here feel like a clear and present danger as you step out to by a gallon of milk? Are people around sensing the carnage you represent to their rights? Apparently Fischer has some sort of insight on how everything is going to go to hell in a handbasket when DADT is repealed. The melodramatic presentation and imagery here are so over the top, I'd like to see this essay faxed to Sen. John McCain, who is still clinging desperately to his belief that DADT is working. Is it at all embarrassing to be on the side of extremists Elaine "flow chart" Donnelly and Fischer? Christianity in the military is under attack.
The days of Dred Scott have returned. Christians now are the ones are being confined on the plantation, and warned about being too uppity.
The only ones who will feel "included" here are those who support sexual deviancy in the military. The rest of you Neanderthals, well, that's just too bad. This is the new military, regardless of what the law says, so get used to it.
McCarthyism has now struck the U.S. military with a vengeance. The question now that the military is asking is this: "Are you now, or have you ever been, a supporter of traditional morality?" If the answer is yes, you go on our blacklist, and we deprive you of your freedom of religion, speech and military service.
The implications for national security, especially for recruitment and retention, are sobering. As gays come roaring out of the military's closet with fangs bared, they will be sending heterosexuals to the brig if they won't keep their opinions to themselves. Who wants to serve in a military like that?
