Some advocates of homosexual supremacy are striking out on their own.
Kokomo, Indiana Mayor Greg Goodnight wants his city to use government force to punish local businesses that fail to endow homosexuals with special protection and privilege.
Such big-government civil rights ordinances will inevitably lead to costly lawsuits, compelling Kokomo businesses to take their business elsewhere.
The high cost of homosexual hate will erode the business infrastructure in Kokomo if the mayor gets his way.
Nonetheless, some still believe that such anti-Christian, anti-business bigotry should be imposed on Hoosiers.
The militant gay hate movement is also weighing heavy in Fishers, Indiana. Fishers is a suburb of Indianapolis and is heavily Republican. The hate movement is apparently targeting Fishers to set precedence for other municipalities to follow.
According to WISHtv.com in Indianapolis:
More and more companies are choosing Fishers. Owners said it’s in part because of the vibe and workers, but there’s also a financial reason.
Over the past few months, several companies, including IKEA, Topgolf and Stanley Security, have announced moves to Fishers.
The imposition of unjustified and unnecessary civil rights ordinances granting special protection to homosexuals would do nothing to enhance the city’s boom-town trajectory. Such big-government intrusion would do nothing more than temper the cities’ economic growth.
Apologists for the militant homosexual hate movement claim Fishers, Ind. needs such intrusive ordinances to assure business growth. Nonsense. The city if booming without the intrusion.
MORE THAN A MATTER OF COMMERCE
The assault on Hoosiers transcends commerce.
• Most are familiar with the militant gay hate movement’s attacks on the Christian community in Oregon. It was there that a mom-and-pop bakery were forced to pay $144,000 for offending two lesbians.
• The effects of the anti-Christian homosexual hate movement was also seen in Honolulu, Hawaii. Religious convictions of the Aloha Bed & Breakfast owners compelled them to refuse service to a lesbian couple. The lesbians sued. The business lost.
• A church in North Carolina was victimized by the homosexual hate movement after the pastor refused to officiate a same-sex wedding. Rev. Kelly P. Carpenter said he has followed the church’s prohibition against same-gender weddings because he does not want to jeopardize his work for the church or harm the other ministries of Green Street Church, according to umc.org. The homosexual couple filed a complaint.
• A business in Lyncourt, New York felt the wrath of the militant gay hate movement when Apple Country Retreat, a bed and breakfast, declined service to a lesbian couple. The owner cited his Christian faith for refusing service. The offended couple filed a complaint with New York’s Division of Human Rights.
• The militant homosexual hate movement tramples on all Americans by defying the First Amendment freedom of religion clause and the Declaration of Independence mandate that government be limited to protecting the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
The list of businesses punished by the militant gay movement seems to be growing exponentially as state and local governments are bullied into submission. The common denominator present in each case is the visceral attack on the U.S. Constitution; specifically the First Amendment that guarantees the freedom of religion.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” the amendment states. There is no provision granting special protection and privilege based on lifestyle or behavior, including homosexuality. Rather, the Declaration of Independence cites the sole purpose of government: It is to protect the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is not the role of government to protect lifestyle choices of homosexuals, people who dye their hair pink, or those who think they are space aliens.
Specifically, the text reads, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men . . . ”
The regressive left has displaced America’s passion for freedom and liberty with perverted understanding of the cardinal principles of equality and rights.
Hate groups are not new to Indiana.
In the 1920s another hate group besmeared the reputation of Hoosiers.
David Curtiss “D.C.” Stephenson emerged as the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan.
Stephenson’s Klan used bullying tactics similar to those employed by the militant homosexual hate movement to derail the state from its moral compass.
In 1925 Stephenson’s sexual perversions landed him in prison after he raped and murdered a young woman. Nearly a century later the state remains mired with the memory of the Klan’s corruption.
Two questions remain:
First, will Hoosiers repeat history by allowing another hate movement to bully them into submission?
Second, will the mayor of Kokomo introduce a city ordinance granting Klansmen special privilege and protection due to their lifestyles?
