Before he evolved, Dennis Miller once quipped that “the radical right is so homophobic that they’re blaming global warming on the AIDS quilt.” Today, that joke comes across like Billy Ray Cyrus’ mullet, yet it is still part of the standard cultural stereotype of the Christian booboisie: clothes that don’t match, a bad haircut, an overbite and a long abiding fear of “the gays”.
Thankfully, reason has prevailed, Adam Lambert wowed, Lady Gaga shrieked, Piers Morgan opened a can of jihad on any Christian guest and Joel Osteen tripped over his tongue trying not to offend. Truth is – homophobia is not on the endangered list just yet. Contrary to popular opinion, the USA is the most homophobic country in the world and it appears to be getting worse by the hour. Real fear and trembling can be seen nearly every day and on every newscast; but it’s not the owner of a fast-food franchise or a born-again actor from “Growing Pains” that are the fearful: Dan Cathy and Kirk Cameron aren’t frightened of homosexuals or they wouldn’t dare stand in opposition and risk getting “Dr. Laura’d”.
Who are the real homophobes? The truly fearful are politicians, journalists, Hollywood producers, superintendents, principals, and clergy of the counterfeit church. Many are the “straight” people in the “pride” parade, from the city politician skittish of pink rage to the business owner that hyperventilates at the prospect of protests and boycotts; Donald Trump and the Miss USA pageant who keep picking judges that issue the rainbow litmus test; school children who are told if they are at odds with the gay statement-of-faith that they are infidels filled with hate and marinated in bigotry.
How has this level of terror been achieved in the land of the free? It started with another pressure group that sported the Rainbow as a symbol: Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow-PUSH. Homo-radicals have simply lifted the extortion page out of the PUSH playbook and planted it in the midst of the garden.
The “tree of the knowledge of gay and evil” has many branches and has grown incredibly strong. Lambda Legal is the “GAY-C-L-U” which adds pressure on the legal front. The Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSN) has infiltrated the public school with gay propaganda. The National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) make sure that the media and Hollywood know their place. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is the political arm that funds many allies while the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force adds the muscle in the street to spit a fatwa at any that dare oppose. The radical agenda is funded and organized to a level that would make Stalin blush, confirming Matt Barber’s contention that “fascism has come to America … wrapped in a rainbow flag and throwing glitter.”
With a string of successes, the movement to establish sexual anarchy has grown to think that no man born of woman can stand against them; but Birnam Wood may be on the move. When “We the People” are allowed to choose, sexual purity goes 32-0. Imagine a football team with a record like that? “We the People” are becoming a dynasty again.
On August 1st, rather than bow and kiss the ring of political correctness, a large contingent of Americans chose a #2 with cheese, waffle fries, and a sweet tea. Thousands upon thousands showed up at Chick-fil-A’s Appreciation Day from all over the country, some driving for miles, all standing for hours — patriots waited patiently — not for a piece of chicken, but for the chance to tell the lap dog media and invertebrate politicians that in the home of the brave, God and Country are still held in “thigh” esteem.
The results of Chicken Gate even got the attention of Ann Coulter, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Fabulous”: “It tells me something about polls generally because they keep taking Gallup polls showing, ‘Oh, gay marriage is so popular’ … It is genuinely a pro-marriage position to oppose gay marriage. And when you see those crowds like that coming out — you know, I’m sorry, I don’t believe the polls on gay marriage.”
Come to think of it, though, it’s not all sunshine, spicy chicken and peach milkshakes; Dan Cathy is a businessman. He sells fast-food: a chicken-seller. Yet, he’s got more intestinal fortitude than our nation’s pastors and politicians.
When asked about the controversy, Mitt Romney decided to sit this one out, “That’s not something that’s part of my campaign.” Excellent! Another champion of moral rectitude who thinks that staring down fascists and standing for the first amendment is a notch or two below his pay grade. Have you ever wondered where we truly are in this country when we have to look past pastor and politician to find moral leadership in the guy who sells spicy chicken wraps?
When it comes to politicians, we live among moral midgets who might as well have a string on their back that pollster Frank Luntz pulls after the focus group data is tallied. Woe unto the worthless shepherds! In an age that despises truth and mocks courage, Dan Cathy and Kirk Cameron, you are truly gallant! Friends – it is time for new leadership. Americans need to wake up and “flex their freedom” … WE’RE HERE, NO FEAR, AND WE’RE NOT GOING AWAY!
