Coming out to say we're NOT gay, and we're proud of it

Sam and I just read with interest that the FTC has given approval to background checking companies, to sell potential employers information about dumb stuff you’ve posted online.  You know, like that photo of you peeing on your ex-girlfriend’s front lawn or like that rant you posted against your previous boss telling the whole world what a dick-head he was.

One online action that will surely land you in hot water is gay-bashing. Unfortunately, you can be accused of gay-bashing quite easily. Our political leaders are scared to death to speak out against the gay and lesbian agenda - which is to FORCE us to accept their lifestyles - for fear they’ll be accused of bashing. More and more laws are being passed, legislating that gays and lesbians have civil rights, to keep us from engaging in any activity that might remotely be considered bashing.

Even the most innocuous action can give rise to strong feelings and hostility against us from gays or lesbians. There was a huge brouhaha this year when the Seattle Space Needle people said they wouldn’t fly the Rainbow Flag in honor of gay pride. The Space Needle people finally caved in to the gay and lesbian pressure and reached a compromise with them.

If it seems like practically everyone you know is coming out of the closet lately, you may be right. Being gay or lesbian seems to be in style. It now appears fashionable to claim you’re gay or lesbian, especially on college campuses and among the young. Hollywood pushes the gay and lesbian agenda with at least one character in every movie portraying an obvious gay or lesbian person.

According to a recent Gallup Poll, Americans' support for the moral acceptability of gay and lesbian relations has now crossed the symbolic 50% threshold. That means more than half of all Americans support gay and lesbian marriage, adoption of children, etc. At the same time, the percentage calling gay relations "morally wrong" dropped to 43%, the lowest in Gallup's decade-long trend.

Count me among the 43%. I can’t speak for Sam - besides he’s been neutered - but I ain’t for it. I’m definitely agin’ it. Despite the fact that it has been reported that there is a gradual cultural shift under way in Americans' views toward gay individuals and gay rights, I have not shifted.

I personally was okay with don’t ask don’t tell. If you want to come out of the closet fine, just do it without parades and a lot flamboyant fanfare and get on with your new life. Don’t march, don’t crow, don’t get married and don’t try to adopt kids. You can be what you want to be, just don’t expect me to like it or accept it. I would never condone anyone physically hurting you because of who or what you are, but I don’t want to be your friend or your neighbor or your co-worker if I can help it.

Your lifestyle is unnatural and an abomination to me.
