Pat Boone says Homosexual Activists are like Mumbai Terrorists December 9, 2008

Seems the Christian fundamentalists are up in arms about the backlash against the passage of Proposition 8 in California.

Here’s the video from Keith Olbermann’s show:

I need to clarify something. The right to peaceably assemble for a redress of grievance is granted us by the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

Of course the Bush administration has played fast and loose with the 1st Amendment. Look at how they put the demonstration zones miles beyond the Republican National Convention.

But Boone is off base here. These protests are NOT like what happened in Mumbai. Matter of fact Mumbai is what happens when you don’t cut religious extremism off at the bud. The actions of those against Prop 8 would cross the line into terrorism if say they burned down a Mormon temple but so far no such thing has happened. Instead we voice our opinions at the places where such hateful legislation originated, the churches themselves.

I truly hope that the move to eliminate the tax exemption for the Mormon church succeeds. Because then it would put all those other churches on notice that if you cross into the political sphere, you pay the price.

And Mr. Boone, you’re a has been trying to make a come back on the backs of the gay people. It isn’t going to happen and we won’t let it happen. I want to see the religious bigots pushed back into their little hidey-holes a la Sadam Hussein. I want them to be afraid to show their faces in public. So I guess that does make my fight the same as that of a terrorist, but I single out one class of people, those who are vocal religious fundamentalists.

The other night Nick and I were discussing what groups we’d get rid of had we the chance. The nitwits at the Westboro Baptist Church came up, so too did the Morons (The angel Moroni, you can just hear the debate on that one, “Yeah lets put an M after the R so it doesn’t make us look like the idiots that we are.”) and I have to now say, put Boone in that category.

I’ve noted the homphobes are really coming out to play lately. This one appeared in the letters to the editor of the Providence Journal:

Kenneith Rindeikis: Doesn’t make homosexuality right..

01:00 AM EST on Tuesday, December 9, 2008

There is an obvious, nevertheless subtle, push by mainstream media to dictate what “moral” trends should now be “acceptable” in our society. Jesus Christ is definitely considered unworthy. Behaviors such as homosexuality are viewed as potentially decent and necessary.

So on that subject I have some concerns that many seem to try to avoid.

There is nothing wrong with two individuals of the same gender loving each other and desiring to live together. This can be a beautiful and natural thing. The problem is when that “love” develops into a physical bond. That is when it tends to pervert common sense and thus no longer becomes a “beautiful and natural” thing.

Is love an emotional or physical thing? When the gay-right cause is fighting for its rights, what “rights” is it actually fighting for?

It’s true that individuals can be born with homosexual desires. I’ve also seen babies born addicted to drugs. Doesn’t make it right.

Where does the Bible condone homosexuality? Or do we even care anymore?

The eternal God tells me that homosexuality is wrong. There are “celebrities” who may tell me it is not wrong. Hmm . . . . I wonder who would have more wisdom?

KENNETH RINDEIKIS

Warwick

Methinks someone is hearing voices, now it’s the eternal God? Rindeikis tips his hand in the 3rd paragraph when he says:

There is nothing wrong with two individuals of the same gender loving each other and desiring to live together. This can be a beautiful and natural thing. The problem is when that “love” develops into a physical bond. That is when it tends to pervert common sense and thus no longer becomes a “beautiful and natural” thing.

Hate the sin, love the sinner. My response to Rindeikis is as follows:

Your belief in an ‘eternal god” is interesting. Step out of the Old Testament if you will and into the New Testament, the word of Jesus Christ.

I love my same sex partner and he loves me. The physical only enhances the deep emotional connection between us.

You my friend are the type who believes sex should only be conducted on the marital bed, under the covers and in the dark.

Step into the light.

I love Olbermann. Pat Boone’s religious beliefs have twisted his mind so much he sees the world through his overzealous, paranoid, Sadducestic frame of thinking. Just like the Sadducess in the bible he is out of touch with people, and more concern with poilitics then God’s calling to love.

Sadly, many of the so called christians have become Sadducees.
