I am so sick of gay people and their meaningless protests that it is not even funny. But here we are again talking about another pointless protest over Prop 8. I have never seen such immaturity in all my life, my son is more intelligent and grown up then these folks. But at least with this protest, there are no screaming banshees to be heard from.
According to One News Now the idea is the brainchild of two men, “Sean Hetherington, a West Hollywood comedian and personal trainer, dreamed up the idea with his boyfriend, Aaron Hartzler, after reading online that a few angry homosexual-rights activists were calling for a daylong strike to protest California voters’ passage last month of Proposition 8, which reversed this year’s state Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex “marriage.” The couple thought it would be more effective and less divisive if people were asked to perform community service instead of staying home with their wallets shut. Dozens of nonprofit agencies, from the National Women’s Law Center in Washington to a Methodist church in Fresno collecting food for the homeless, have posted opportunities for volunteers on the couple’s website.”
While it is good they are at least trying to promote giving back to the community. To use charities for some political ploy is definitely on the sleazy side. How about the losses those charities will lose money because of those who do support Prop 8 and do not want to be associated with those that don’t? By listing themselves on these men website they are probably doing themselves more harm than good. But again that is entirely each charity’s decision.
Next, if this country is as homophobic as they say it is why would they encourage people to call in “gay” for the day. It would be like encouraging people to call in alcoholic for the day or to call in as a “pedophile” for a day. Calling in as the latter could very well get you hunted down and killed. They are always talking about gay bashing, if that is the case, wouldn’t calling in gay for the day be the equivalent of handing someone the bat? I only bring this up to illustrate , the depths they will go to create a lie. They know the probability of someone being bashed because they are gay is small and getting fired for being gay is even smaller. Therefore they have no fear in telling people to call in gay because if America was truly as hateful to gay people as they are always trying to represent then they would have to be all kinds of cruel to tell people to risk their very lives for a cause that is not even their own.
This is America and if they want to waste their time crying over spilled milk, let them. But none of this is changing people’s minds except some of those who voted No might now be wishing they had voted Yes. These constant stunts are not winning hearts and minds but are driving the wedge deeper. And in the spirit of their movement I have come up with my own mantra, “I’m straight, I procreate, get used to it!”
Note: After I had finished my article I found this:
Scott Craig, a fifth-grade teacher at Independence Charter School in Philadelphia, had no problem requesting and being granted the day off. So many of the school’s 60 teachers were eager to show support for gay rights they had to make sure enough stayed behind to staff classrooms.
About 25 teachers plan to take Wednesday off and to have their work covered by substitutes while they discuss ways to introduce gay issues to their students and volunteer at the local branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, Craig said. A letter telling parents why so many teachers would be out went home Monday.”
Now remember these are the same people who told us our children’s education wouldn’t be affected! And here it is coming to fruition! You want to ruin your life with HIV, MRSA, and every other disease known to man-fine but you leave my kids out of it! You want to go around sleeping with everything that moves-fine but leave my kids out of it! You want to live your life like one endless porn movie-fine but you leave my kids out of it! All I know is if Arlington Heights ever tries some nonsense like this I will be all over them like white on rice!
I am sick of these people using innocent children as their pawns and if they think I am going to continue to stand for it well they got another think coming! Stop using children for your sick, twisted and perverted agenda! If you are so hot on killing yourself with homosexual sex-do us a favor-do it and shut up about it! Leave our kids and the rest of us alone we don’t care about your lifestyle, we don’t want to hear about it. If it is none of our business, stop making it our business and keep your nastiness out of our schools!
