In a comment made to me yesterday, on a Facebook political thread, in response to my going after the ‘gay-Left,’ and my quoting (and praising) Dr. Ben Carson’s firm and admirable stance on traditional marriage, someone replied with, “It’s not about Left or Right, it’s about human rights.” …Be that as it may, the definition of “Marriage” has indeed always been between a man and a woman. Believe it or not, I know some gay people who do not support redefining the word, but still advocate for the [legal] aspects for all men and women, no matter their sexual orientation — as Dr. Carson clearly included in his speech at this years Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) event.
As soon as I finished watching the clip of Ben Carson on youtube, I immediately googled Left-wing pages that would have certainly put a spin into Caron’s speech, making him out to be “anti-gay.” Sure enough, they didn’t disappoint. From, Slate.Com, The Huffington Post, to, of course, gay-based pages, they brought up a speech in 2013 Carson gave, where he stated,
“It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society, and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn’t matter what they are — they don’t get to change the definition,” he said in a Fox News appearance.
Even then, the Left took that statement, and focused on the word “Bestiality.” Spinning it into words like, “Carson believes homosexuality is the same as bestiality.” “Carson attacks gay people.” And so on…!
Carson also defended these accusations in the 2014 CPAC speech, in that that was not what he meant, but the Left took his words and labelled him a “homophobe.” Even when visiting these pages who criticized Carson’s CPAC statement that, “…Gay people don’t get extra rights.” They, of course, didn’t put nearly enough emphasis on his words before that sentence, which was, “Of course gay people should have the same rights of everyone else…” The Left took these words and labelled him, once again, as “anti-gay” who thinks people want extra rights. Well, sorry to break it to the gay “community” but, he’s right. From disgusting, perverts like the group NAMBLA, the gay organization that believes they are justified in have sexual relations with underage boys, to a recent story that came to light in which a hair dresser refused service to Governor Susana Martinez (which he is justified in doing so by the way, but had the situation been reversed and the roles were opposite, lgbt jokes like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and other Gay groups would have had a fit.) simply because she believes in traditional marriage, the gay-Left (and some gay Liberal Republicans I might add.) have made it a point to attack others who disagree with them or believe in something that has been around long before I, or they were around. It’s almost like these gay-Left advocates, and their heterosexual allies LOOK for reasons to be offended.
More gay Conservatives should support people like Ben Carson on his courage to stand up and staying true to his convictions. You know, those who refuse to change their longstanding beliefs simply because the Political Correct police say they have to. You may not agree with his stance, but you should still respect it.
I know life-long [heterosexual] Conservative Republicans who have changed their stance on marriage; either because they realize the shift that is happening in our country — where younger generations are now supporting and embracing same-sex marriage, or they changed because they learned, usually by talking to gay Conservatives, that we’re not all bullies like the Dan Savages of the gay-Left.
I really can’t blame some straight people for hating gay people. The way the gay-Left requires so much attention, looking… needing acceptance from others, not to mention protesting something every time they don’t get their way makes me sick. Sadly, I used to be so naive. Now, however, on the flip side, I can say the same about the Religious Right and Left. I can see why some gay people hate the “extremists” in both parties. The people who think you “Pray the gay away.” (Sorry Michelle Bachmann, you and your husband are not scoring any points with many youth I have talked to, gay and straight due to that silly notion.) It’s a two way street, and both sides have their share of people who force their way of life on others.
In closing, even as someone who is uncertain on whether there should be same-sex “marriage”, or just calling it something else. I enjoy sitting with my fellow GOP members, whether gay or straight, and saying, “OK! You’re for traditional marriage, good for you. Now where are you on foreign policy, fiscal responsibility, abortion…” You know, the [other] issues that actually affect every American, not just one group of people.
I know that same-sex marriage is inevitable. Yes, it is. But that doesn’t mean people are “bigots” for fighting the traditional side. Nor does it mean that they hate gay people.
So, to the gay-Left and their straight allies, please, stop being victims in this uproar for extra rights. You have your gay pride parades, your Disney “gay days”, your gay magazines in the gay bars… you even have a gay-themed television channel (LOGO). There are no straight pride events. There are no “straight days” at Disneyland. And there is no straight-themed television channel. …Well, other than the NASCAR channel, but you know what I mean.
