Opposition To Equal Rights Is Bigotry

BigotryOpposed

I find it extremely frustrating to continue talking to people who wish to impose their views on you all the while claiming that is what you are doing to them.  Isn’t that the idea of a debate?  To present your views through FACTS that back up the information you are relaying.  It is painfully obvious that a LOT of people don’t understand what debate is or how it works.

You know it never fails that in cases where bigotry and or racism are concerned all of a sudden people have these thoughts that there are so many gray areas and middle grounds everywhere.  How can there be a gray area when you are telling someone that you don’t believe they should have the same rights as you.  How can telling someone that their choices are illegitimate while your choices are right and therefore deserving of certain privileges or rights?

How can this thinking be anything but WRONG?  How does any sane non bigoted person come to the conclusion that the jury is still out on whether or not a person should be endowed with all of the rights granted to every adult in this country?  But this is what you have to constantly converse with when writing about instances of bigotry and hatred.

Of course its narrow mindedness which causes people to think that somehow they should have any say on whether two people who are adults, consenting, and law abiding citizens should be able to do what every citizen in this country is allowed to do just by having a different sexual view.  And then have the nerve to say that this is democracy.  Democracy isn’t about being able to vote away peoples rights.  Give me a break.

Hmm, now that you think about it of course biased people think there is a middle ground.  Just like I am sure you can find a ton of racist people who believe that there is a middle ground as to whether or not black people or Jews should have the same access to rights in this country.

Yet, people wish to call YOU something stupid like “Bush” because you are pointing out the obvious.  If a person were to say that Jews shouldn’t have the right to vote simply because they don’t worship Jesus like Christian people, they would be labeled a hater or a bigot.  And that would be damn freaking right.  What is so hard to understand about that?  I am just guessing that hatred or bigotry must tinker with your intelligence.

Yet, show a bigot that denying a person the right to marry is no different than denying a person to vote, drive, work, live, or the right to any other right granted to ALL people in this country and YOU have the problem.   And then to have the gall to actually then tell you that there are a lot of other people who have their rights abused as if that makes it OK.

There isn’t one reason other than bigotry that a person can give as to why thinking that one segment of the population that fits ALL the same criteria as every one else in the population except who they choose to love would not be able to have the same rights as everyone else.

But we all know that most bigots are extremely touchy about being called out.  Not only do they not wish to explain why one segment of the population doesn’t deserve the same rights but they continue to yell over and over about the same lame ass tidbit that they feel justifies their stupidity; yet, never qualifying these tidbits with anything.  As if just saying it over and over is the key to making it realistic.  Wasn’t that what the Bush Administration did to push the Iraq war?  Repeat a lie often enough and the stupid of the bunch will buy it.  Sorry I’m not the one.

Hate Is Hate There Is No Middle Ground

Marriage is a human right

There are just a lot of things that are bothering me right now.  And not all of them have to do with racism.  I guess I will just jump right in and rant and vent all my disgust with the world or at least this country right now.  First of all how in the hell is denying gays the right to be just like everyone else NOT hate?  I am trying to figure that out.

After the states that had gay marriage referendums on the ballots actually voted the right down anti gay marriage people came out praising the people for doing the right thing and said that it wasn’t about hate.  Well when blacks were denied the right to marry white people was that NOT about hate?  Wasn’t the whole reason blacks couldn’t marry outside their race due to the fact that some if not most white people hated blacks and wished to keep them out of their blood lines?

So now it is OK to tell part of the population that “you’re totally not equal to me” so it is fine for me to deny you the right to marriage.  I think it is your god given right to believe that gay people are going to hell or that you disagree with what they do behind closed doors.  It is even your right as a clergy person to say that you will not participate in gay marriages.  But since marriage is a legal contract and has nothing to do with a church, the church or any religious beliefs have no business dictating law.

Now this is the ultimate in mixing church and state.  Yet you have all these silly ass people screaming about the founding fathers and the constitution who see no problem with this travesty which is totally ignoring all that the constitution stands for.  For one the constitution allots for separation of church and state.  And the Bill of Rights gives everyone the right to the pursuit of happiness; it also states that ALL men/women are created equal.

How is everyone equal if you are telling some that they shouldn’t be given the same rights as you and I?  This is the same bullshit that is affecting black people.  We are all equal but when companies decide not to hire blacks, too bad.  They need to look for work elsewhere.  Or my favorite, we are all equal but if a company doesn’t want to include or equally represent blacks, blacks should start their own company.

And this crap about protecting marriage is just totally insane.  How is gay marriage going to affect my heterosexual marriage?  People keep saying that they want to defend marriage by denying gays marriage.  HUH?  If you wanted to defend marriage then you would outlaw divorce.  Or better yet outlaw cheating as that seems to destroy more marriages than gays getting married somewhere you don’t even know about.

I wish someone would explain to me exactly how a gay marriage destroyed a heterosexual marriage to the point that we have to defend them from the gay ones.  This is just mind boggling.  I haven’t seen a gay marriage and don’t know any gays, or at least don’t think I do, who have gotten married.  And I bet the plethora of idiots who are voting to keep gays unequal don’t know of any gays who have or are marrying either.

The fact of the matter is, is that most of these people just don’t like the idea of homosexuality and therefore wish to punish those they feel go against their so called religious beliefs.  Well none of these people are holding fast to their religious beliefs anyhow.  Since we know that the bible says judge not less ye be judged.  So why not let god deal with the gay people.  If he felt that what they do is so against him wouldn’t he have smote them already?  Aren’t we ALL children of god?  So get a clue and stop trying to play god under some phony fallacy of a moral compass.  Hate is hate, is hate!  There is no middle ground.
