I got another email from the Christian conservative AFA bashing homosexuals some more. This time they are telling me how much Christians are suffering under the oppression of a handful of gays who influenced two TV-stations to not air this program called 'Silencing Christians'. Here's the first part of six on youtube, uploaded by someone with the username 'uckfobama'.
Here's a few outrageous quotes from the video with my comments:
0:50: "I believe that the caricature that's painted of Christians as being mean and hateful it creates a context where violence is being perpetrated against Christians." [Where is all this violence against Christians? Perhaps we are talking about Christians resisting arrest when they demonstrate against homosexuals?]
6:00: "There's nowhere you can turn to without being bombarded by the message that homosexuals need special rights." [Wrong! They want equal rights, not special right. You Christians are the ones who wants special rights.]
7:28: "If they have a right to go out and say gay is good, then I should have the right to say that I don't believe in it." [What does he mean by 'believe' in it? Like, if he has the right to say that he is not a blabbering moron, then I have the right to say that I don't believe that he is not a blabbering moron?]
8:05: "[Children] should not be forced by the government into situations where they are being indoctrinated into beliefs their parents don't agree with." [I agree. This should always be objected against, as when children are being indoctrinated by having to say 'One nation under God', etc.]
8:38: "What kind of society will our grandchildren grow up in if basically all sexual behavior and all forms of marriage are defined as equally valid? That is a recipe for national decline over time. No nation can sustain itself with that kind of sexual and family ethic." [Not all forms of sexual behavior - only that which takes place in private among consenting adults. Not all forms of marriage - only that between two consenting adults. No, it is not a recipe for national decline. You say yes, I say no. You have no evidence. Back up your claim. Yes, there are self-sustaining nations that allow homosexual activity as well as marriage. They are doing fine: The Netherlands, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Norway, Belgium. Civil unions and registered partnerships are allowed in many more countries, and none of them are in particular decline.]
You can see the whole video here. I didn't have the stomach for it, though.
A new kind of problem
