Our civil rights struggle to engage in protest against the excesses of the gay “civil rights” movement is about more than the freedom to petition our government for a redress of grievances. It is also about our deeply held religious conviction that expressing opposition to homosexuality is love speech, not “hate speech.” The Word of God to Ezekiel (33:8,9) is illustrative:
If I announce that some wicked people are sure to die and you fail to tell them to change their ways, then they will die in their sins, and I will hold you responsible for their deaths. But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.
So, as one can clearly see - if one simply opens his eyes and his heart – the true Christian views the phrase “it’s OK to be gay” to be a form of hate speech. In the view of those who are true followers of Christ, it is a refrain no more hostile than the suggestion that the homosexual simply “go to hell.”
And, so, I submit that those of us who criticize the excesses of the false gay “civil rights” struggle are the ones involved in the true civil rights struggle on America’s campuses. Nonetheless, as I think back to the days when one of my relatives kept a loaded .357 magnum behind the counter of his business - to chase out the brave young blacks who battled segregation - I am cautious with my constitutionally protected speech. I would never succumb to the temptation to compare our struggle to the one Martin Luther King, Jr. led in the sixties.
But, unfortunately, gays are seldom able to do anything in moderation. By yielding to the temptation to compare themselves to the likes of Dr. King, they damage their own credibility and magnify their infinite condescension and arrogance.
