Politcally Incorrect Musings
Gay Bashing (or How to NOT push your agenda)

This is an object lesson for the gay community on how to NOT push your agenda. They have only justified the fears of the homophobic.

Gays vandalize San Francisco church

Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, in the heart of San Francisco’s gay Castro community, was vandalized over the weekend by opponents of Proposition 8, the California resolution passed by voters in November that rejected gay marriage. Swastikas were painted on the church and the names Ratzinger (referring to Pope Benedict XVI) and Niederauer (the San Francisco Archbishop) were scrawled besides the Nazi symbol.

Anger Over Prop. 8 Erupts In San Francisco

"It was not an organized thing. We're tired of it. It's not religious. It's not a racial thing. It's about hate. We're trying to send a message across the world that we're standing up and we don't want this to go on anymore," said Adam Quintero."

I agree their (the Gays) actions were about hate and not respecting law and about intolerance. They displayed their hate by attacking people who had done the same thing EVERY Friday night.

'Jesus is a homo' Homosexuals Disrupt Church Service

I wonder what would have happened if they shouted "Muhammad was a homo" outside a mosque? The Islamic faith is also against homosexuality. But, I guess there is a difference between people that are more likely to throw shoes at you (or bombs if you find some radicals) than someone who will throw prayers at you. It is like the difference between the animal rights activists attacking little old ladies wearing fur coats versus throwing paint on a leather-clad biker gang.

It seems there is an underlying problem to the "gay rights" issue: the movement has been hijacked by people that want to destroy all religion and care little for the rights and beliefs of others. It is this minority that is fomenting "homophobia" and is actually working against getting gays on equal footing with heterosexuals. Their tactics are having the exact reverse effect of their desires. One cannot integrate oneself if one keeps setting oneself apart through violence. Rosa parks did not preach violence. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. did not preach it. Now we have a black man elected to the highest office in the land and, arguably, the most powerful seat in the world. This is how true transformation will be made... slowly, peacefully.

The fears of the homophobic are being realized; they Gays are, indeed, coming for them.

You judging the entire Gay Rights movement by a few extremists is like you being judged based on what the KKK does.

And MLK was considered an extremist in his day. So was Rosa Parks. They were violating the law and threatening order.

I am drawing a parallel between the two "rights movements". Civil disobedience is a bit different than what is happening now. Quietly refusing to sit in the back of a bus is different than assaulting people. Using a "Whites Only" restroom is different than disrupting a church service by denouncing and insulting their religious figures.

The KKK was (and is) still wrong and the vast majority of people realize that now. It took many many many years to reach the point where the majority of the population looks at the KKK and finds little or no points to sympathize with them on.

The struggle for gay rights is going to be long and will not be achieved by these (violent) means. What the gay community needs is a transformation of the heart of society, not a bloody revolution.

Ye-ah. That's REALLY not the way to get your message across. @_@

*sighs* Unfortunately, it always tends to be the few that make the majority look bad.
