In a diatribe against Barack Obama, titled, "Obama's election heals 'white guilt' at the cost of life and family," Martin Luther King's niece, Alveda King, said that overturning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) "would unleash a storm of sexual immorality such as America has never seen."
Alveda went on to say that, "Obama gives a face to abortion."
Her commentary is profoundly disturbing and her homophobia is off the charts. I'm sure that the late Coretta Scott King, a gay rights supporter, would not be proud of such anti-gay rhetoric.
Coretta once said that, "Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood." I agree with Coretta.
Alveda King, has a long been an anti-abortion zealot and at the extreme fringes of society. During the Don Imus controversy she commented, "Yes, Don Imus's apologies are necessary. But I demand the same from every public figure who has ever said that babies in the womb are not persons.
How bizarre is it to make a connection between the Imus fiasco and abortion?
In a breathtaking display of lies and hypocrisy, a group of anti-gay culture warriors and long-time Mormon bashers placed a full page ad in the New York Times on Friday pretending to be both victims of alleged homosexual "mobs" and staunch defenders of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons). Both claims are absurd and a cruel attempt for the victimizers to claim the mantle of the victimhood - which is a manipulative and cynical political ploy.
The dishonest Times ad essentially claimed that violent mobs of gay protesters were attacking the Mormon Church and its followers in the aftermath of California voters narrowly approving Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in that state. They even launched a website www.NoMobVeto.org. (It seems they forget that they put basic human rights up for a vote, which is essentially mob rule)
This Times ad is full of blatant lies - much like the immoral television ads attacking same-sex families during the Prop. 8 campaign. The fact is, the vast majority of the rallies across America were peaceful. Considering gay families just got stripped of their basic rights by a campaign of lies, the protests were remarkably tame. If any other group had been subject to such humiliation and multi-million dollar smear campaigns, there would likely have been riots in the streets - not the fake "violence" conjured in the bogus Times ad.
The anti-gay organizations and individuals who sponsored this "Big Lie" ad are trying to pull off a remarkable feat: They are both crying wolf, while being the wolf in sheep's clothing. The degree of chutzpah is remarkable and eye-popping.
Consider that the unctuous signers of the ad (Kevin Hasson, Nathan Diament, Rich Cizik, Ronald Sider, Chuck Colson, Chris Seiple, Dr. Alveda King, William Donohue, Robert Seiple, Douglas Laycock, Marvin Olasky, Roger Scruton and Armando Valladares) are now pretending to love Mormons. In the ad they wrote:
"The violence and intimidation being directed against the LDS or 'Mormon' church and other religious organizations - and even against individual religious believers - simply because they supported Proposition 8 is an outrage that must stop."
The ad ended with the following propaganda:
"Furthermore, beginning today, we commit ourselves to opposing and publicly shaming anyone who resorts to the rhetoric of anti-religious bigotry - against any faith, on any side of any cause, for any reason."
Well, that is good news. The authors of this hypocritical ad can start by spotlighting themselves:
"Hollywood is controlled by secular Jews who hate Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular." -- Bill Donohue, Catholic League
"Mormonism either affirms historic Christianity, or it doesn't. Since it doesn't, it can't call itself Christianity -- a fact that all the good will and public relations in Utah can't change." -- Chuck Colson, Prison Fellowship Ministries
"While Mormons share some beliefs with Christians, they are not Christians." -- Chuck Colson, Prison Fellowship Ministries
"Most evangelicals still regard Mormonism as a cult. That will shape, I'd imagine, their reactions to Romney as a candidate for the White House." -- Rich Cizik, National Association of of Evangelicals
Roger Scruton said that today's Islam is "rooted in dogmas that cannot be safely questioned."
I really do hope this group shines a light of shame on those who promote religious bigotry - but they better be wearing very dark sun glasses when this occurs, as the glare from the light may be quite blinding. It appears that the only thing these hypocrites have in common with Mormons, or any other religion that they don't agree with, is an uncommon passion for anti-gay discrimination. To watch these hypocrites act as the great defenders of the LDS church, and religion in general, is beyond laughable.
Gay activists plan to demonstrate outside Gov. Charlie Crist's wedding to Carole Rome this month.(Will former New Jersey Gov. James McGreevy be invited?)
The group Impact-Florida has called on its members to gather in pink T-shirts on Dec.12 to "congratulate" Crist and Rome while their wedding takes place inside.
Crist, who is allegedly a closet case who allegedly used to cruise gay bars in St. Pete, endorsed Amendment 2 prior to its passage by 61.9 percent of state voters; it needed 60 percent to become part of the state Constitution.
It is sad what some men will do to satisfy ambition.
An overwhelming majority, 83 percent, of public school and private religious school students admitted to lying to their parents about something significant, compared to 78 percent for those attending independent non-religious schools.
So, religious kids are less moral and more prone to cheat. Amazing, considering all the obnoxious, self-righteous preaching and incessant boasting about family values. The anti-gay crowd is also more likely to be divorced. Exactly why are these failures spending millions of dollars to tell other - more successful families - how to live their lives?
After witnessing the disgusting, dishonest, immoral manner in which the Yes on 8 Campaign was run in California - these results are no surprise. The youngsters in this study learned their wayward ways from their "moral" parents.
