Did that get your attention? First, let me say Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas and holiday season and that you have come back to reality and the rhythm of life whole and healthy.
I’ve been on vacation for a few weeks. And while it was more like dropping off social media and the web for a while than actually going on vacation, it was just good to have some down time.
Unfortunately, the PC police and the Hard Left Loons didn’t take a day, or even an hour, off. They were and still are out in full force.
The first day back I ran a piece about preachers in Canada being arrested for simply teaching Biblical principles as it pertains to homosexuality. There was nothing about hating the person. No comments about beheading the person. No comments about stoning the person. No reference to acting out in a violent way against anyone in the LGBTQ community. They were simply teaching what God said about homosexuality according to the Bible.
Yet that is considered “hate speech” because it calls the actions of another human being sin.
Well, first I have to say, if you don’t believe in God, then you don’t believe in sin. So why are you upset? Next I would ask, how is it hate speech to say the actions of a person are against God?
Is it hate speech if I say I don’t like Mexican food? It gives me bad gas and I really just don’t like it. Does that mean I hate Mexicans? Because I think the Mexican border should be secured and people should come here legally, does that mean I hate Mexicans? How petty of you to think that I want the border secured to keep out Mexicans when it’s been proven that people from all over the world come over the border illegally.
I posted the statement on social media “It’s already happening in Canada, pastors being arrested for preaching against homosexuality.” A follower named Chris responded after I asked people to define “hate speech.” I got the usual “low IQ” responses; “anything that comes out of your mouth,” “anything a Republican says,” “anything a conservative says” and so on. But at least Chris took an honest stab at it… well, as honest as a left-leaning progressive can.
“hate speech is anything that incites violence … also specifically its hate speech when you do things like compare gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals.
“…if they weren’t producing hate speech there would be no problems.”
Well, I have never heard any preacher (except the right Reverend Al Sharpton) advocate violence. Inciting violence in today’s society is easy. Make fun of someone’s baseball team in the parking lot after a game and you might get your head bashed in and end up in a coma (like what happened at a Los Angeles Dodgers game a few years back). Were the attackers charged with hate crimes? No!
A liberal professor tore up an “anti-abortion” display on campus while calling the young men and woman there all kinds of names. Was she brought up on hate charges? Nope!
So, in all honesty, he should have said when a “conservative religious type” says something that offends, they should be brought up on hate speech charges.
Webster’s says, Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children, generally age 11 years or younger. Not Joe’s definition. So are you saying that no gays or lesbians are pedophiles? And if that is what you’re saying, would you say the same about heterosexuals? Or do the same rules not apply?
This is classic, “…if they weren’t producing hate speech there would be no problems.” Where do we live in “Who-Ville” where we all eat rainbows and poop butterflies?
Wake up! Someone, somewhere will always be offended by something someone somewhere says. Why? Because they choose to be offended and intolerant!
What Left-logic says is that if I don’t accept the way you want to live, the things you want to do, and your belief system over mine, then I’m a hater. Period!
If I believe that abortion is wrong and that you actually take a human life, I’m a woman hater. If I don’t believe in same sex marriage, I hate same sex couples.
According to Left-logic I hate my children. And so did many of you reading this. I have promised the kids I would not give away their deep dark secrets, and I won’t. But, when one was dabbling in drugs I told them I wouldn’t support them. I even had them arrested for having drugs on them. OMG where is child protective services when you need them? According to Left-logic, I hated them. When one decided they knew what and how they wanted to live and wouldn’t abide by the house rules, they were asked to leave the premises, and they did. According to Left-logic I hated them.
When one, who usually made great decisions for their life made a few bad financial decisions after being told what the consequences were going to be for doing exactly what they did, we would not step in to save them. According to Left-logic I hated them.
Simply put, your “real” definition of hate speech is “anything someone on the Right says or does that goes against your way of thinking, and irritates you” is hate speech. How tolerant and fair of you!
I won’t be getting on that train. Happy New Year everyone! Let the games begin…
