Anyone ever ask the question that begs to be asked, why, if homo-activists are so about "inclusion" that they don't include sexually normal people ("heterosexuals") in their acronym?

I imagine it would be for the same reason the NAACP doesn't include caucasians in their title as well. Because it would make no sense to do so.

Your argument fails, activist homosexuals insist that they are about total "inclusion."

The NAACP is admittedly an advocacy group for minorities.

I believe you're taking the world "inclusion" out of context. Most politically active homosexuals seek to denounce what they perceive to be bigotry, discrimination, and hatred against them. Part of inclusion involves being able to participate in society as equals. Can you understand why a minority group would do this?

"Most politically active homosexuals seek to denounce what they perceive to be bigotry,..."

And therein lies the root of the problem. They denounce PERCEIVED bigotry through actual bigotry. Not some "soft bigotry" like holding a private opinion, but hardcore, full-on, would-be-illegal-the-other-way-around bigotry. They advocate firing people who dare express a contrary opinion (Frank Turek). They advocate forcing religious organizations to either violate their principles or close (Catholic Charities Adoptions). They advocate witholding business licenses from legitimate companies because of their political views. All in the name of "tolerance" and "inclusion."

Yes I can HOG, but that is a double edged sword.

You must include me, but I don't have to include you. Since I want you to include me you must change to fit my reality. I don't however have to change for yours. You will never be included in my small little group, but I will eventually be in yours.

So why are their perceptions wrong? And you're ingoring the impact of law in all this. Those people you mentioned about business liscences and religious organizations are still subject to discrimination laws, which vary from state to state. Some states recognize sexual orientation as a minority. Others don't. I live in one of the states that doesn't. If you oppose those laws, then attack the laws. Not the people.

That's an interesting question.

East Carolina University (ECU) has launched a new campaign that attempts to pressure employees to affirm homosexuality despite their religious and moral objections to the lifestyle. Couched in the language of safety and inclusion, the program promises to brand as intolerant those who refuse to accept the university's official position on matters of private sexual morality. This is especially problematic, given that ECU is a public university.

The campaign was launched with a profoundly unwise email, sent by university employee Summer Wisdom under the subject line "Gay? Fine by me." She begins:

"This spring the LGBT Resource Office (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual...
