Equating Homosexuality To Ethnicity
Equating Homosexuality To Ethnicity
I have a soft spot for California because I first came to these ‘cornucopic’ shores through there – I remember my father convincingly selling California to me by highlighting that she had weather in Northern California akin to the Indian-summer-like weather we enjoy in the Eastern Caribbean (Saint Kitts). Notwithstanding the weather, California has done all it can to replace traditional behavior with perversions dressed up as normality. Nowhere is the tyranny of the minority more empowered and emboldened than in California. Last week, there was a move by some California legislatures to include, as part of the curriculum, the contribution to history by homosexuals. The utility of the legislation is supposedly to highlight the positive contributions of homosexuals to American history … like how we do for other ethnic icons like Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King.
It is rather difficult to ignore the ethnicity of those two giants above in their respective callings because their race was part of their respective struggles – I expect the sexual orientation of Harvey Milk to be discussed when studying his contributions to San Francisco because it is inherent in his life and struggles. But just to focus on the homosexual orientation so as to force acceptance and moreover to usurp the values I may want to teach my children is beyond the pale. We are also told by backers of this so called inclusive curriculum that learning about homosexual contributions to history will help thwart bullying. But just how those in the Civil Rights movement made the mistake of trying to legislate and foster a ‘Kumbayah‘ setting between the races failed miserably because emotions, whether emanating from Black or White, cannot be legislated. Furthermore, as a Black-man, I find it sickening that the homosexual behavior is being equated to that of being Black… for I have yet to read anywhere in the Bible where having my hue is tantamount to being an abomination.
Who in his or her right mind does not know who is gay or not in today’s culture; we live in an age where such things are flaunted and celebrated. Name any celebrity of note and the average spectator can tell you about the star’s sexual orientation, even if said spectator has no inkling for such personal information. As for the utility of the legislation preventing gay bullying - is it different from any other kind of bullying? The bullying that contributed in the taking of the lives of those young ladies earlier this year and last year did not matter whether such bullying was borne out of the victims’ being gay or borne out of callous, wanton wickedness on the part of the purveyors -- it was all wrong!
Does anyone think that any evidence of the added danger of living the homosexual lifestyle, vis-à-vis diseases, will be available in the proposed curriculum were the California legislatures to have their way? As a student of history, tangentially, I know that many of the great Greek philosophers were pedophiles and homosexuals, yet the objectives were to study what they contributed to the ‘Ocracies and Isms.’ In light of the California legislatures attempt to force children to learn the minutiae of history, I must remember to teach my daughter, when she is of age, that Hitler was not only responsible for the Holocaust, but that he built the Autobahn that her father enjoyed driving on when he served in Germany.
