The word of the day is: tolerance.
Everyday I wake up and I’m told I’m supposed to be tolerant of values and behaviors I feel are not only bad for the long term health of our society, but some that run headfirst into my faith. Beliefs which clash with my beliefs. It reminds me of when I have to discipline my son by shutting down some of his fun – I’m always the bad guy.
Why are the people screaming about tolerance night and day some of the most intolerant folks involved in the discussion? Why am I not allowed to believe in the fundamental principles of my faith? Where is the tolerance? Here’s one: Let’s talk about the Elephant in the room: Gay. Homosexuality. Why are we as conservatives afraid to talk about this?
Most people know my view on homosexuality… I don’t much care for it. Not saying that everyone that practices it is a bad person, I just don’t care for their actions. This is a statement, stance and philosophy which is NORMAL, with no hate involved. It’s just how I feel. Some background on the evolution of homosexuality in America:
While being gay has been around forever, (here I go) it’s not a normal thing for a man to look upon another man with lust in his eyes. Acceptance is one thing, but to label it as normal is where things begin to go south. A little background.
30 years ago we use to play a game called “smear the queer;” a game where whoever had the football got gang tackled. It was a normal. If you had the ball, you were the queer, because no one else had the ball, and having the ball made you odd or “queer” in that respect. Of course, you could throw the ball to another player and the pack would quickly turn to smear that queer, without regard to his or her sexuality, I might add. Queer, gay, homo, fag meant nothing having to do with what you were attracted to and no one committed suicide, got beat up or even called names in that regard. That was my experience.
