December 27, 2010 Don`t ask don`t tell and the religious right
I wanted to say Happy New Year to all of the loyal followers of this blog. I was really sick over the Christmas Holiday with a bout of the flu. I am finally getting close to being human again and I wanted to write a quick post.
Some of the news that took place over the holiday perked my interest but none of it really gave me the yearning to grab the laptop and write. I was really flabbergasted by the big deal the gays made about “Don`t ask don`t tell”. In reality who gives a damn if you’re gay? I don`t. I look at all the other issues our society faces and I think to myself “you people put your sex life in such high regard that you miss the real problems”. Statistically many in the gay community are financially well off and yet they vote for democrats. The reason is that the religious right in the Republican Party won`t mind their own damn business and leave these people alone. On the other hand, the gays demand acceptance of their lifestyle.
Ok, let me back up and explain; I am one of the few conservatives who can agree with portions of the gay agenda. I happen to hate the way the religious right wants to use the police power of government to project their morality on others. I am not in favor of the gay marriage agenda but I do think under the constitution of the United States gay`s have a right to a domestic partnership. I personally think this is a good compromise on both sides. The gay`s should understand that marriage is sacred to many Americans and should remain a ceremony for men and women. On the other side of the coin gay men and women have every right to a legal domestic partnership under the constitution.
The gays need those protections which allow them to hold joint property and assets just like any married couple enjoys. They need to be able to have each other on insurance policies and other such important policies and or documents which protect their private property and wealth. As a Christian man I do not believe that being gay is right or normal; however, I will not judge my fellow man or deny them their rights under the constitution.
I thought that the Clinton era “don`t ask don`t tell” policy was a good one. It basically let gays serve without throwing it in everyone’s face. I have a lot of words coming into my head here so let me back up again. I don`t have a problem with gay people at all, I have many great friends who are gay and I love them dearly. I know that my lord Jesus Christ has told me I have no authority to judge, he alone has that authority. I am commanded to love my neighbor as myself. I think gay`s should have every right under the constitution as any other citizen has. My problem comes when they demand that we not judge them yet they want their damn sex life to be on the front page. If a man wants to sleep with another man….I don`t care, just keep it in the privacy of your bedroom. The same with lesbians, I don`t care about your damn sex life. If I liked gerbil`s up my ass I wouldn`t march on Washington to make everyone else agree that I am sane or that its normal.
I agree that gay`s should be left alone and not judged by others; however, they need to allow others to have their opinions without being called bigot. To the religious right in the Republican Party; we need you guys to shut the hell up and clean the board from your own eye before removing the speck from others. A final note; you gay`s statistically have a lot of private wealth. You praise this asshole obama for signing away “don`t ask don`t tell” and yet he makes plans everyday to seize your private wealth. How about you all put your damn sex life in perspective and not make it so all important? You better pay attention to what obama is doing to other more important liberties. To re-cap; I support domestic partnerships, I support gay rights as long as they are not special rights, I wish the religious right would mind their own damn business; and finally I wish they gays would stop supporting a socialist party because their sex life’s are so important to them.
