Gays not so happy with Mormons
Chalk one up for the home team, my servants.
Yes, I know it’s a small victory, and it’s not the first or the last, but I just have to boast when I see political correctness confuse, confound, and control the religiously motivated. (The theistically religious, I should clarify; the atheistically religious rarely run afoul of political correctness).
This time it’s the Mormons. I don’t have any great beef with the Mormons, in fact I find their view of who Jesus is to be fascinatingly attractive. I just wish their belief was true; maybe then I’d get a little familial respect out of Heaven. Yo, bro!
Ha ha ha ha ha. Yeah, yo bro, where’s my birthday card?
But regardless the religious prop of the day, we get a kick down here every time a church boy takes a position on an important issue for which God also has a clear point of view, and then gets publicly pummeled by a vocal politically correct minority who forces him to succumb to a different position.
And this time, like I said, it was the Mormons who assumed, so to speak, a politically incorrect position on the issue of homosexuality.
It seems those straight-shooters in Utah had the temerity to say (are you ready for this?) that homosexuality is unnatural. Can you believe that? As reported by the AP today in an article entitled, “LDS leader’s speech on gays modified on website,” we read:
National gay rights activists have called for Packer to recant statements that homosexuality is unnatural and can be overcome, calling the comments factually inaccurate and dangerous.
And this Mormon Packer dude caved, apparently based on some unspoken ”facts.”
I’d like to see the facts that indicate homosexuality is natural. I could use those kinds of facts. I’ve been pushing people down this path by peddling lies for decades. You mean there are facts? That homosexuality is natural? Those must be some facts. That’s like saying celibacy is natural; if it was natural it would not be natural for long!
But facts or no facts, what I find delicious is the continuing tendency of Christians and people who call themselves Christians to continually capitulate to “facts” that clearly contradict their own authority. I know the Bible pretty well (I’ve quoted scripture to Jesus’ face!), for example, and what I read in the Bible is clear: not only is homosexuality called unnatural (Romans 1:26), it is an abomination.
Look, my servants, I’m all for burning the Bible and banishing all thought of its content. But it is what it is.
Are church folk trying to be relevant? Or do they just want to go along to get along? I don’t know. But I like it. Each step church boys take backward is a step I take forward. Ha ha ha ha ha. And I’m rolling, baby. Are there no men among them?
By the way, here’s a thought: I wonder what gays would think is unnatural. Sex with animals? Why? Who are they to say? Sex with baby girls? Hmmm? Unnatural? On what authority? Because you don’t think it’s natural? Who are you? Because millions like you don’t think it’s natural? Who are they?
The dirty little secret (shhhh) is that if there is no God, then there is nothing that is unnatural. Every behavior, no matter how perverse and repulsive, and regardless of anyone’s objection, is natural by definition. What else could it be?
Without God, we would all be left to determine what is right in our own eyes. Which is, by the way, exactly what’s happening. Ha ha ha ha ha.
And you want to know what’s right in my eyes? OK, I’ll tell you:
Unnatural sex acts. If you do this, you do my will. And you please me.
Calling unnatural sex acts natural. If you do this you please me even more.
Create an environment where unnatural behavior cannot be rationally critiqued without the threat of public scorn, or even official punishment. If you do this you please me exceedingly.
Teach all the little children of the world that what God calls unnatural is natural. Do this and you please me beyond my wildest dreams.
And perhaps my greatest commandment on this issue: Don’t ever speak out against, or other wise try to stop, anyone engaged in the above. Do this and you will be a candidate for Ainthood on these issues.
Go, my servants, and do my will on earth as it is in Hell.
