An openly gay Episcopalian bishop from New Hampshire named Gene Robinson has been invited to take part in next week’s inauguration proceedings in Washington. Robinson is not only unabashed about his sexual orientation, but is well known for advocating for homosexual rights.
As you can imagine, the bigots are all over this, especially in the context of what promises to be an administration characterized by freewheeling liberal immorality and, if all goes as the Dems allegedly hope, the very destruction of freedom and the world itself in accordance with Satan’s blackest aims. But if everyday homobigots are ignorant and toxic, the ones emerging from within various rotting stumps and from under rocks are a different brand of shit-swilling and unapologetically illiterate and just plain stupid American citizens. Seriously, I can’t go three days without calling someone or something dumb here, but I think I have never seen examples as bad as in the comments to this article in my hometown paper.
Just read the string, bottom to top.
These are really the dumbest people I’ve seen. Homobigots are bad enough, but throw in a queer cleric and oh boy the worst of them really come flying out of their mud-bogs. I pop up in there several times, but I see no point in continuing. It’s insanity raised to an unquantifiable power. If I were gay I would honestly want to root out these worthless blowhards and incinerate their Bibles as they watched. Nevertheless, some of the themes I addressed:
IT SICKENS ME is not a valid argument against people’s rights.
PEOPLE WILL START SCREWING THEIR PETS–demonstrably false; pets in Amsterdam and San Francisco remain safe from buggery.
IT’S NOT ‘HATE’ TO POINT OUT THE TRUTH–well, wrong in that their idea of “THE TRUTH” is fiction, but this complaint is appropriately ironic in light of how much Christians complain of “persecution” resulting from their merely “expressing their faith.”
And there is no GAY AGENDA. Seriously, if you use this term, you tacitly admit to having the analytical skills of a Mynah bird.
And so on, and on and on. I keep myself from getting too bent out of shape by the sheer number of unsavory babblemongers out there by reminding myself that such crap is merely a reflection of the Good Guys winning these battles lately. The homobigots won’t go quietly, and they won’t fade altogether, but they will fail and they will fall.
