By the way...

By now, it should be very well known that gay rights activists insist that there is no difference between their cause and the fight for racial equality. Therefore, if you dare oppose what is known as "marriage equality", you are as vile as thugs who wear those pointy white hoods and burn crosses. Yeah, well, I am not convinced. Perhaps, it's that I am one of those bigots who think gay "marriage" is an absurdity, and bigots, of course, are notorious for thinking they are NOT bigots. Perhaps. And, perhaps, I need to be told that I'm a bigot repeatedly. Only by that kind of tough love therapy will I finally be disabused of my rancid delusions and finally be able to see the Sweetness and Light that Sodomite "equality" is supposed to be. Er, well, oops. I guess I should have written Gay "equality" and without the scare quotes. Sowwy. The therapy needs a little more time to work. So, feel free to call me "bigot" as often as you like.

But until this therapy does liberate my inner sense of Rawlsian Fairness, I, as I said, remain unconvinced that the parallel drawn between the fight for gay "equality" and that for racial equality is anything but risible.

The premise of the latter is that the main difference between the whites and blacks, skin color, is nugatory and, therefore, cannot justify any discrimination between the two. For the parallel with the fight for racial equality to hold, the gay rights activists are forced--it seems to blinkered, bigoted me--to argue that the main difference between straights and gays is as insignificant as skin color. The main difference is that the former desires sexual intercourse and the latter desires mutual masturbation, and to say that this difference is trivial is to ignore that the endurance of any human society has depended quite literally upon the desire for sexual intercourse whereas the appetite for mutual masturbation has never and will never be necessary for anything but, maybe, the ephemeral gratification of sexual hedonists. The actions of straights have obvious societal value, those of gays do not, and to say that the desire to procreate does not matter is to say that the endurance of humanity does not matter.

Yes, I know, I am wildly homophobic. Fine, gay rights activists are wildly misanthropic.

Oh, Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

The subject heading says it all.

Freedom!

I was at a Starbucks today, reading a book against gay "marriage". I did not get kicked out. Tolerance! Is this a great country or what?

Nota Bene

I quit facebook for good. Why? It's the Capitalist Version of the Stasi.
