Homosexual activists have been relentless in attacking bullying against homosexuals. They claim that anti-homosexual opinion and speech lead to suicides among young people who sometimes are confused about sexual thoughts. New Jersey passed an aggressive anti-bullying statute in 2010. The “Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights,” as it’s called, was in process before the suicide of Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi who had been videoed while engaged in a homosexual encounter. Ironically, Rutgers is a pro-homosexual university that is welcoming toward homosexuals.
America’s real bullies are those people, organizations, and government officials that impose a pro-homosexual agenda on a public that is afraid to speak out on the subject. Despite what some polls indicate, most Americans are opposed to homosexual behavior. Very liberal California passed a law opposing homosexual marriage. While homosexuals decry bullying, it’s amazing how many of them are the biggest bullies.
Here’s the story on the latest homosexual bully. While Bristol Palin was filming her reality TV show, someone screamed out the following to her: “Your mother’s a whore!” “She’s evil!” “Your mother’s the f**king Devil!” To her credit, Bristol took on the bully:
PALIN: “Alright, is it because you’re a homosexual?”
MAN: “Pretty much. And why’d you say I’m a homosexual?”
PALIN: “Because I can tell you are. This is your boyfriend. And that’s why you don’t like my mom.
MAN: “No, that’s not why I don’t like your mom. Your mom is evil.”
Who’s the heckler? His name is Stephen Hanks, a 47-year old Los Angeles “consultant.” The website TMZ describes him as being “gay.” For the uninformed, “gay” is a euphemism for the word “homosexual,” which means that Mr. Hanks has sex with other men. Definitionally, and to throw his epithet back in his face, this makes him the whore.
America’s real bullies are almost never criticized. Homosexual groups have been bullying companies, movie studios, schools, and Christian groups for decades over homosexual issues. I’ve had personal experience with them. I was invited to participate in an open forum on homosexuality and the rights of employers not to hire people based on moral and behavior issues. As soon as I made a comment, the mostly homosexual audience began to shout and blow whistles. They are afraid that the general public will start thinking through what homosexuality is all about and the implications for their children..
School systems have been bullied by pro-homosexual groups and politicians to reshape the curricula of public schools. Judges have bullied voters by overturning elections that resulted in redefining marriage. This happened with the vote in 2008 on Proposition 8. The referendum provided that “only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” The proposition passed 52.4% to 47.76% in one of the most liberal states in the union. The results didn’t stop homosexual United States district court Judge Vaughn R. Walker from bullying millions of voters by imposing an injunction against enforcing Proposition 8 on August 4, 2010 in the case Perry v. Schwarzenegger.
Then there’s the anti-Christian bullying by pro-homosexual activist Kathy Griffin.
“Upon receiving an Emmy Award Statue in 2007, Griffin announced: ‘I guess hell froze over. A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this. He had nothing to do with this. ... Suck it, Jesus! This award is my god now.’”As far as I know, not a single Christian killed himself over her remarks or the remarks made by other entertainers, politicians, or authors who berate Christians and Christianity on a regular basis. Bullying Christians has been documented in rigorous detail in David Limbaugh’s Persecution: How Liberals are Waging War Against Christians, Janet Folger’s The Criminalization of Christianity: Read This Book Before It Becomes Illegal!, and Donald Wildmon’s Speechless: Silencing the Christians.
Homosexuals will claim that their cause is a “civil rights” issue, similar to the hard-fought struggle that Blacks have gone through. The analogy is false. Homosexuality is what people do. The euphemism “gay” has been used by the homosexual movement to hide the fact that homosexuality is really same-sex sex. To describe what homosexuals do with their “sexual equipment” would turn off many readers at this point. The very nature of the act is unnatural by definition, and any relationship based on same-sex intercourse is “against nature,” that is, against the way God made us as sexual beings (Gen. 2:18–25; Rom. 1:26–27). This is why Colin Powell wrote some years ago how it is inappropriate to link homosexual behavior with the civil rights movement. He said: “Skin color is a benign, non‑behavioral characteristic. Sexual orientation is perhaps the most profound of human behavioral characteristics. Comparison of the two is a convenient but invalid argument.”1
