Bigotry in the G.O.P? Tea party's ex Gov.of NYC is just the tip of the iceberg.

Updated on January 26, 2016

Stereotyping people is just plain wrong

The new GOP mentality

Are politicians above the law?

Are they to be held to a higher standard than other people?

Should their prejudices be tolerated or punished?

This is not Just about this one politician. This seems to be the theme running through the new Republican party today. The more outrageous the actions and words of the GOP leaders the more popular they seem to get.

Unfortunately, this phenomenon can also be attributed to the media who sensationalizes these radicals by continuously repeating their follies on every news channel. The more negative the greater coverage, and it does not matter whether there are any factual contents or not.

Politicians, they never cease to amaze me. (Another bonehead speaks out)

Ex G.O.P. candidate for Tea Party governor of New York, Carl Paladino is a blatant admitted bigot. He is anti gay - saying he does not want his children "brainwashed" into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option to heterosexuality. He calls the gay pride parade disgusting, and says OK to gay suicides. This kind of stupidity still amazes me.

This is the kind of uneducated ignorance promoted by the radical right wing tea party and equally radical religious zealots who have themselves been "brainwashed" into believing that this natural phenomenon is somehow a 'choice', ergo, a 'sin' based on their biased narrow minded religious upbringing. This is the worst kind of religious bigotry that we need in our government.

Unbridled ignorance

Apparently It is OK to brainwash all our children into believing all that claptrap about homosexuality being a sin against the very god, and nature, that has produced it.

And equally OK in teaching those same children to hate and kill gay people.

But is it NOT OK to enlighten (brainwash) the public with the truth. ? Somehow this logic escapes me.

Those are the very religious leaders that have killed and imprisoned their own members for speaking out against the church for preaching that the world was flat, not round, and that the earth was the center of the entire universe, and that the sun revolves around the earth.

The roman Catholics also condemned their members to an eternity of hell fire for eating meat on Fridays. As a child, if we erroneously ate meat on Friday, by forgetting what day of the week it was, had to confess this grievous sin to the priest for absolution, otherwise face the wrath of God and spend an eternity in hell fire. This is reality? Really?

With all this unbridled ignorance the majority of half way intelligent Americans do not want these uneducated (politicians) and religious (leaders) making any decisions that affect our lives, or those of our friends and family.

This "beating up" of the gay community must stop now!! Even with the Supreme Court ruling that same sex marriages are legal under the constitution, these haters are still going strong.

Using any minority as fodder to further political agendas should by banned by both parties.

It is a sad time in history for America when we find political parties running on a "hate" platform as an "American value" system.

What children are taught

Obviously this public chastising of minorities sends a message to the children of today that hatred of anything they don't understand, and hating anyone who is different than them, is way more important than jobs, welfare, health care reform, better education, and equality - just to name a few of those crazy radical ideas that those darn liberal democrats are trying to spread around.

I guess the only solution is for the roman catholic church to make a declaration that homosexuality is a natural phenomenon and declare that, that word be banned from their bible, along with their other idiotic ideas of the past that are no longer valid.

But, that is not likely to happen any day soon, some of those old-school bigots still believe that the world is the center of the universe. It took almost 2,000 years to convince the Pope and his cohorts that the world was in fact round, and that it rotates around the sun, not vice versa, so how in hell could we expect this ignorance to correct this petty error in their teachings?

Of course to expect a Pope that has condoned pedophilia throughout his career to have the balls to stand up for justice, etc.... That just ain't gonna happen.

I just wonder what happened to all those poor souls who ate meat on Friday after they died? Was the punishment by God (according to the church) grand fathered into effect? Or was the punishment suspended after the pope declared it no longer a sin?

The ignorance of Mr. Paladino of New York is frightfully more prevalent that one would hope for in this age of enlightenment. He is just a reflection of his religious upbringing, but that ignorance is not an excuse for his stupidity.

Denying the truth

Denying the truth does not mean that the truth no longer is relevant.

Scientists have already isolated the "gay" gene, but no-one can stand up to the power of the religious movement, without some political repercussions, and even greater fear that those political repercussions will come in the form of financial loss. (The ultimate price to pay for any movement against the almighty God of Greed that is now ruling this world.)

So, let us continue to promote the "heterosexual agenda" so we can let the population grow exponentially and cause grief, strife, starvation, pollution and ultimate destruction of this planet.

After, all, mankind knows best. God and mother nature are too stupid to make any concessions for the saving of this beautiful planet by altering genetics to perhaps stop the proliferation of those destructive "heterosexuals".

That is what we have wars for. It lowers the population and makes money for those rich folks who promote it. There you go - another win - win situation.

It is also quite obvious to most people that the agendas of hatred spewing from the mouths of those so called conservatives are nothing more than a distraction from the possible exposure of the truths of their agenda to continue the quest to totally turn over the government to the rich and powerful.

To rephrase that last sentence: This is no longer a quest to promote - it is a fight to maintain that already gained position. This is definitely already a government by the wealth - for the wealthy.

      Thanks for reading and your comments. I don't how we will ever change these problems. Until enough of us start getting involved and voting for the candidate and what they stand for, instead of the party, and start demanding to keep religion out of politics, not much is likely to change.

      Too many conservatives will vote for this peice of crap based on entirely this statement and this is another example of why religion has no place in government and it's getting to the point I don't think it belongs in this country. The biggest problem with religious people in this country is how few know anything about the religion they claim is such a huge part of their lives. Truth matters not at all to these bigots and about the only thing that does is practicing bigotry and hatred every chance they get. Here in the bible belt the problem is caused and compounded by the level of ignorance that prevails. 8 out of the least educated states in this country are all in the top 10 most religious states. This is not a fluke. The church has fought knowledge from day one for a reason. Stupid people are easier to control and brainwash.
