You will always reap what you sow

I don’t know how the vote on James Holsinger will turn out but I am glad that he repudiated that study on lgbts he wrote:

Holsinger said the 1991 writing was not intended to be a scientific paper and relied on the information available to him at the time.

"First of all, the paper does not represent where I am today. It does not represent who I am today,'' Holsinger said.

I have to ask a question to our friend Peter LaBarbera, Matt Barber and the rest of the anti-gay industry: now that Holsinger repudiated his study, what is taking you so long to do the same?

The question is strictly rhetorical.

I know that many in the anti-gay industry won’t take back the discredited studies and the cherry picked legitimate studies they always cite when seeking to demonize lgbts.

In particular, they seem to not be able to help themselves in repeating Paul Cameron’s discredited studies.

In a recent appearance on the O’Reilly Factor, Concerned Women for America’s Sandy Rios said the following:

" . . .we all know that smoking is really harmful to your health. Well, what people don't understand is that the homosexual lifestyle, especially for men, is deadly. It takes their life 10 to 20 years earlier than straight men."

No matter how many times must we repeat the fact that this study has been discredited on several occasions, I don’t it matters to Rios and company. As long as the information puts the lgbt community in a negative light, then they are going to use it.

Maybe they own a secret copy of the Bible that advocates lying in the name of God.

Also Rios tried to slip in a little comment about David Parker, the parent in Massachusetts who manufactured a media event based on the lie that he was trying to guard his son from being forced to listen to talks about gay sexual intercourse in his kindergarten class.

One lie after another.

Meanwhile, I hear that some "Christian" folks disrupted the opening prayer in the U.S. Senate. Apparently they were upset because a Hindu minister was invited to give the prayer.

I'm not surprised their behavior.

After all, according to people like James Dobson and Rick Scarborough, this country belongs to them. All of us "heathens" are just here by their will and pleasure.

So much for Christian humility.

It’s kinda sad how these pseudo-Christians operate. First many of them go on news programs repeating to be studies they know to be incorrect.

Meanwhile, others are shouting down those who don’t share their beliefs.

And finally to top it off, they all whine about being persecuted for their religious beliefs.

What's next?

Are they going to compare their actions to the African-American civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s?

Sorry folks, but the comparison just doesn't wash.

The African-American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s was about fighting for the right to exist. Some psuedo-Christians in this country are fighting for something that doesn’t belong to them or anyone else - the right to dominate.

They don’t seem to understand that they are doing more to turn people against Christianity than any of the collective actions of the usual boogeymen (i.e. lgbts, ACLU) that they like to conjure up.

Sooner or later, their stridency and obnoxious way of acting is going to come back and haunt them. And rest assured, I will be there to make sure as many people as possible pays attention.
