Anyone Who Disagrees With These Folks Is A Hate Group.
Its tough to stand for decency, rule of law, the constitution, and traditional values any more.
Its bad enough that the SPLC has been presented as a legitimate decider of who is a hate group, and who is not. Its hard to argue with their designations when listing supremacy groups (Neo-Nazis and Islamist organizations), but when calling traditionalists hate based?
Political correctness, driven by an emotional need to have a certain group’s behavior unconditionally accepted, has placed those who desire a safe, moral and aesthetically appropriate social environment in a bad light. Media driven values degradation has produced a new class of minority, and if you disagree, or are a practicing Christian, you must be a hate filled bigot.
Traverse City Family members have stood out in the cold, put up with physical assaults by those who disagree with their message, and have yet to hurt, maim, or intimidate any single person because of color, creed, their behavioral orientation, or gender. This group provides literature to help folks escape the trap of homosexuality, and produces educational videos designed to encourage more wholesome choices.
Perhaps their website seems a little frantic, but it has some good information throughout for those seeking it. In any event, they are on the SPLC list alongside Nazis, Islamists, and Black separatists because they disagree with the homosexual lifestyle.
That ONE designation isn’t sufficient for a local homosexual behavior promoting group however. For TC Equality, ANYONE who has the potential to disagree with their membership is a hate group. Listing all conservative groups as on par with true racism is their form of silencing opposition. Essentially, everyone who is not a progressive liberal is deserving of such a title.
Perhaps because they feel the platform of LGBT acceptance is sufficient to carry their political ostracism sufficiently? Certainly, the tide seems to back them up, and conservative groups MUST become the outliers.
One must wonder if their tactics are not tried and trued, given the removal of Homosexuality from the DSM in 1974 under political pressure.:
” Of course, the APA put the best spin they could on these events. The fact is that they altered their taxonomy because of intense pressure from the gay community, but they claimed that the change was prompted by research findings.
So all the people who had this terrible “illness” were “cured” overnight – by a vote! ..”
The author then argues there is no such thing as a mental illness. (trite perhaps?)
The point however, is that acceptance of any behavior is of a social construct. The sudden acceptance of what was, and then suddenly NOT an illness is premised on opinion alone? And if not even a mental illness, it is one that has been traditionally repugnant and viewed as such. And if this ONE (previously designated) deviancy (or mental illness) is now accepted as a norm, what is to say other baser activities will not find their way into the mainstream under such political pressure?
Conservatives have become merely speed bumps for groups like the SPLC and the even more extreme (local) activists who use the word “equality” in their names, who simply HATE the roadblocks of decency.
