Do Democrats know the difference between fascism and liberalism? Apparently the Mayor of Houston, Ms. Annise Parker, is incapable of separating her own sexuality – her fragile sensibilities and biased opinions – from the rights of others who disagree with homosexuality and/or gay marriage. What’s even more offensive, or better yet bewildering, is that she actually demanded local pastors turn over their sermons and personal correspondence for examination. Excuse me?!!! For examination by the gay Gestapo in this Constitutional Republic known as the United States of America?!!! Is Ms. Parker a Pontiff, a Governor of Rome, Nero? Yes, Houston’s Mayor may have anointed herself as the supreme leader of the new-found gay SS but she has absolutely no authority to gag the mouth of Churches who are free to share their views; no matter how offensive or reprehensible she finds them. Remember, the First Amendment wasn’t designed to protect our government from our religious values; it was designed to protect our religious values from tyrannical and intrusive government. And yet how ironic is it that our civil rights warrior made no such requests from local Mosques? After all, if you’re going to be eerily and complicity silent in regards to Islam – which routinely denies women and gays basic human rights, even torturing or stoning them to death – on what grounds are you singling out Christianity for merely protecting their sacred beliefs on marriage? Oh, that’s right, progressivism is about undermining our Judeo-Christian values, the cornerstones of Western Civilization, in order to erect a unilateral government that cannot be rivaled by any individual, creed, or God.
Whether or not a religious sermon crosses over into the realm of politics is of no consequence for technically every issue or opinion is political in nature. Freedom of thought is not a crime, religious or political, unless you attempt to silence those voices who wish to digress. Just because a Christian, Jew or Mormon oppose gay marriage doesn’t make them a harbinger of hate or a tangible threat of violence. They simple choose their salvation, the religious and natural parameters of marriage and procreation, over that of political correctness. If anything, this is but another example of liberal fascists ignoring the Constitution and historical precedent – the founding premise of America – to abuse the power of Government and demand the populace to submit to their will at all costs. You, Ms. Parker, in case you forgot, are a public servant bound by law; nothing more. You answer to the people and their rights supersede that of your desperate ploy to force your sexual insecurities and political agenda upon them. Unless you’re oblivious to the fact marriage is a religious institution, has been for millennia on end, your actions are completely without merit and are therefore inherently egregious. Is this not exactly why states have civil unions; a legal recognition of gay couples in both society and the workplace? You can try to fit a square peg in a round hole all you want, attempt to convince humanity the Earth is flat, but just don’t cry foul when they refuse to drown in the shallow end of secular liberalism. Sooner or later someone is going to stand up and refuse to be another victim of your transgendered politics.
