~ WOW, WHAT A FEW DAYS. Like going 100 miles an hour on fire on a bicycle riding backwards. An asteroid has just struck the heart of America. Fallout and suffering and death (can you say ‘Roe V. Wade’?) to continue for generations.
To Be Really Clear
If I did support ‘anything goes’ marriage, I would be embarrassed and offended that bullying, cheats, silencing, mocking, and other forms of abuse of process and people were being done by my side. Not in my name, clowns.
‘Neener neener!’ and end-zone dancing is bad sportsmanship. Making crap up out of nothing like inJustice Kennedy did is bad law. Taking people to court over legitimate conscience and freedom of speech and freedom of association is bad citizenship, and abuse of neighbour. Where is the dignity of difference?
Now, President ‘Or Else’ is telling dissenting Christians, Muslims, and Jews they’d better shape up and get onside ASAP, in your name. Nope, no threatening there, when the most powerful man in the country gets his antiChrist on and starts thinking he is speaking directly for Almighty God.
Whoa there, Binks– antiChrist? Well, I dunno if he’s THE, but he’s AN. That’s what you are doing when you effectively tell God to keep his nose out of things; or act or claim (in the name of sin and error) to be speaking directly for God. Leaving the actual God and his Church and his revelation and his Son to be an afterthought, or a political tool, and acting like the messiah himself? Evil. Dangerous, dangerous evil.
Besides, is that who you progressives want speaking for you, and in that way? Or is reality so simple that just a little dusting and clearing away the deadwood and utopia is here? As long as he gets us what we want, we’ll put up with him?
Really? Those tactics, in your name?
Evil Binks Is Still Evil
Back in my Anglican info-warrior days, I asked some of these same questions, and received no answer. Apparently, we live in darkening days of The Ends Justify Any Means, Hypocritically, some of those who in Nazi times would have worn pink triangles in Auschwitz now operate by the same lawless, heartless, smash it all down mentality of the Sturmtruppen and the SS, at least politically and religiously and legally speaking.
I’ve copied over some of my old comments onto a new page for ease of reading below. I genuinely hate to say it, but I told you so.
Unapologetic then, and I’m unapologetic now. Truth is truth is truth. TRUE love must tell it. Come and get me.
Cheer up, it’s going to get much, much worse, and at an accelerating speed.

The Rainbow Boot: Queer As Volk?
According to Godwin’s Law, when either Hitler or Nazis come up in a debate, the end of sane discussion is at hand. Oh well.
The more this observer sees of the crazy off-the-scale Left in church or society, the more it reminds me of the mindset and techniques of totalitarianism. Take the creeping assault on religious freedom in Canada and England, in the name of ‘ diversity’ or tolerance. Freedom of speech threatened without a second thought; religious freedom increasingly fenced in, so that morally traditional religious freedoms exist at the beck-and call of governments, tribunals, and the whim of the perpetually discontented. Even lives threatened. Such is the price of yet another heaven on earth.
Thinking All Fascistical
Now, if I were a fascist, and some fascistical event or development took place, I’d keep quiet, or perhaps rejoice . If I were a freedom-loving person, I’d simply have to protest. So we have pro same-sex militants Richard Kirker in England, or Louie Crew in the United States. When the religious or other freedoms of people they disagree with are threatened or curtailed, should they not speak out clearly against such infringement? Well yes, IF they were consistently freedom-loving people.
To be fair, perhaps they failed to notice the inconsistency, or looked the other way. Perhaps they were busy with other things. Perhaps the interior political culture of the same-sex movement only allows for only one protected class of victim and rights to be fought for. Perhaps re-education camps are very IN this season.
In any case, as you read through our pages, and see how the activists and their allies get things done, it smells like right-denying, democracy-crushing, bend the rules, the ends justify any and all means some-are-more-equal-than-others totalitarianism. Narcissism bent on revenge, perhaps?
Such movements appear parasitic and illogical by nature; abusing freedom, and denying it to others; poisoning democracy, yet depending on it; claiming God’s own blessing while denying His will and Word; proclaiming itself a liberation, and yet willing to look the other way at the injury and limiting of fellow Christians, human beings, and people made in the image of God.
Others Have Noticed, Too
The CaNN News Editor is not the first one to notice bullying fascistic and mind-controlling tendencies in the same-sex movement. In Canada, John McKeller, the President of Homosexuals Opposed to Pride Extremism (HOPE) spoke out on the matter in 2003. Provocative gay writer Camille Paglia has spoken often of gay activism as narrow, elitist, and fascist– even of a “gay Stalinism“, in her 2002 article ‘The Gay Inquisition‘.
Hissy-fits and whitewash just will not do.
This is a reminder to Christians that the pastoral task of befriending and loving those with same-sex addiction also requires prayer and wisdom for the renewing of their minds, and in some cases the setting aside of the totalitarian impulse.
It is also a judgement on the liberal churches for allowing such anti-human and anti-Christian totalitarian ideology to enter the church, and to be labelled as authentically Christian– and to label faithful and thoughtful opponents of the innovations as bigots and 2nd-rate Christians.
If conservative Anglicanism espoused the methods and mindset of the totalitarian Left, I’d drop it like a hot potato. Will the mad Left do the same?

Fa-a-abulous Totalitarianism: Queer As Volk Update 2.0
Paging all freedom-loving Anglican same-sex activists everywhere. These May 2007 headlines are reversed, for your consideration:

Oh, and dear activists: please send us heads-ups on all your protest-marches, letter-writing campaigns, new websites, books, hunger-strikes, conferences, online petitions, interviews, press releases, and your general outrage over these kinds of violent and hateful abuses, done precisely for the sake and in the name of your movement.
