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.

      It grieves me that so much of the black community has followed the Biden/Obama's plunge over the cliff to even think of homosexuality as being equivalent to race.

      And to top it off Christianity or any religion cannot be considered along with race to be treated as an immutable right. Our forefathers had it right.

      " 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."

      It should be sickening to any reasonable person. Here's a scripture that applies to the the insanity of the American left today that is the dominating force in the Democrat party.

      Rom 1:22 " Professing to be wise, they became fools..."

      Rom 1:28 "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind..."

      I am happy to be a fool among the Apostle Paul, and moreover, the uncompromised Word of God and I supposed that the Apostle Paul and Moses were also false prophets (Matthew 7:15) for deeming homosexuality an Abomination: For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error (Romans 1-26-27).

      Okay, Verily Prime, you win --and only because I accept that you will not (or cannot) answer my original question. It shows me you know little of the Bible.

      A wise minister once said something to me like this, " God is intentionally unknowable to us. If a man tells you he knows God and what God is and wants from us, he is a big fool. A bigger fool is the man who does not seek out God based on his own truths but instead follows fools."

      (see Matthew 7:15 and the Ninth Commandment)

      I have lost many folllowers beccause I do not compromise the plain meaning of the Bible - so here goes... if the Word of God, which I consider to be perfect, proscribed a given behavior, it is so no mater how much in vogue or popular that behavior is, even if I myself were engaged in said behavior. So right of the bat, no one is going to convince me that God is wrong on any issue! No matter what twist one may give the Word of God to justify a given behavior - if homosexuality was wrong then and it was - it is so now and anyone who tries to tells me differently is wasting his or her time!

      I cannot make that comparison because the Bible makes no distinction but that is not what my comment said. Read it again. I'm speaking how the civil rights movement is equated with LGBT ---while there are similarities, they are not the same. This is what I see the Hub reacting too.

      Being gay is as much a behavior as being straight is, or "sounding black" is or as being human is. Being gay or straight (or black) carries with it cultural imprints and are a state of being ---much like an individuals innateness creates a state of being. Who we all are are acted out in behaviors. What you appear to object to as many social conservatives object too is "Be gay but don't "act" gay. " That's like telling a black person not to "sound" or "behave" too black.

      Yes Christ wanted all people to be treated as equal -but this has nothing to do with behaviors that He proscibed... show me in the Bible where it says my being Black is equated to being a homosexual.

      Ditto, pierre.

      The gay movement having similar qualities and parellels of the civil rights (racial rights) movement is always being confused as being two of the same. Were in one hand bullying of all its vicim forms is bad, black or gay, and yet the rights and priveleges that they can enjoy are different.

      Is not what's good for the goose not good for the gander? In other words, did Christ not want all people to be treated as equals?
