Bigotry is alive and well, and still living in American politics.
Bigotry and Hatred
- Andrew Shirvell. Politicians who cross the line. Is it Bigotry Or simply Freedom of Speech?
Which is most important? Free speech or equal rights? Protesting and disrupting funerals in the name of hatred overrides privacy rights. The new "moral" majority speaks out.
Bigotry and Hatred Kills
Politicians who promote such things should be removed from office without question.
Personal opinions and/or religious beliefs DO NOT belong in politics.
Bigotry - alive and well and still thriving in the U.S.A. It permeates all walks of life.
In the past week on CNN there have been three different episodes that show hatred and bigotry is alive and well and thriving in the good old U.S.A. This seems to be a recurring theme in the U.S.A. today.
The first event was discussed In a hub on the subject: "POLITICIANS - they never cease to amaze me", that profiled an assistant attorney general in Michigan that has been blatantly targeting a Michigan university student who is openly gay and elected by his peers as president of the student council.
This politician, Asst. A.G., Andrew Shervill openly admits he has been stalking, harassing and calling names because the student is gay, and because he can, and get away with it.
He is being shielded by the attorney general, Mike Cox, apparently because they reflect each others views. They are both republican conservatives that represent their party values.
The 2nd one to look at concerns a 12 year old boy who committed suicide last week because he was continuously being bullied and tortured (terrorized) by his fellow students.. For no reason other than being gay.
The 3rd one from yesterdays newscast is an 18 year old student at Rutgers University in New Jersey. His name is Tyler Clemente. He committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. He could see no other way out of a predicament that was forced on him by fellow students in an attempt to ridicule him for the fact that he was gay.
He was secretly video taped by his room mate via phone camera and live streamed directly to the Internet. This was clearly a hate crime because he was gay. If he were a female student having sex that was streamed to the Internet, these students involved would have been punished.
My deepest sympathies go out to the families of all three of these young lives, ruined by the hatefulness of an ignorant society.
Man has created a world of shame, guilt, blame, abuse and sadness
The "logic" behind the bullying
Let us explore the logic, or rather the lack of logic, behind this bullying and targeting of the young and vulnerable, whose only 'crime' was being born 'different'.
Anyone with at least 1/2 of a working brain, by now should be aware that homosexuality is a genetic condition - not a choice that children make as soon as they "pop-out" into this hateful and unforgiving existence.
Who is perpetuating this hatred and why - again.
(first and foremost) that promote and teach their anti-gay agendas. Freedom of speech is one thing, but teaching and preaching unfounded bigotry and hatred and intolerance is inexcusable. There is no rational justification for this inane belief (inane: lacking significance, meaning, or point; empty, unsubstantial)
who were brain washed from their youth and encouraged to continue to teach this folly to their children. And so it goes from generation to generation. (folly: lack of good sense or prudence and foresight. Criminally or tragically foolish actions, conduct, wickedness, evilness that goes against realism).
who are also brainwashed from their youth and who choose to continue to propagate this false testimony; and who are elected, supposedly, to serve all the people; without exception or prejudice.
- Are People Born Gay? Or just dancing to the beat of a different drummer?
Are People Born Gay? What an absurd question. Apparently there is not enough education, or even logic, on this subject. We are prisoners to the religious fanatics.
It is NOT politically correct to quote the bible, Koran, Quran, or any other 'religious' book, to justify their (politicians) own agenda of religious idiocy, and their attempts to mandate morality based on their own beliefs. They were elected to represent ALL the people, not just their religious counterparts.
Religions want to have a say in politics - well i say let them pay taxes like any one else. Or keep their hatred and intolerance to themselves. Morality cannot be mandated. And these beliefs reside only in the little minds of those that believe this drivel.
Politicians who cite bible verses to justify their bigotry should be chastised or removed from public office.
Parents whose children taunt, ridicule, bully and harm others, should be held accountable. After all, they are the ones who taught this trash to their offspring. Ignorance begets ignorance. Punishment for these offenses must extend beyond the children, to their parents who taught them, as well.
Freedom of speech does not justify cruelty. If it does in the eyes of the law, then more SHAME on a government that allows it. I would bet that 99.9% of those that do the bullying, taunting, bashing, etc., are from a strict religious upbringing and practice "conservative" politics, and taught that their personal god advocates judging others. They are also most likely to have the same deeply repressed feelings, that they criticize others for, and hide them in the dark recesses of their own closets. The only way to hide their own personal skeletons, and fears of exposure, is to beat up on others that they relate to on a subconscious personal level.
Cosmic Karma does not reward bigotry, in spite of what religion teaches.

Everyone decides their own fate and destiny.
- You are the STAR of your own show. Be true to yourself.
We are the only controllers of our life, our fate, our destinies. We must never give anyone the power to influence us.
- Be Who You Are Meant To Be And Be Proud of Who You A...
Hate and discrimination is not a right or a privilege. It is an abomination and sinful for those who practice it. Judge thee not, lest ye be judged? Practice what ye preach.
Thanks to religion and government for promoting this behavior.
This is where bigotry and hatred begins.It is rooted in every religion
