Davenport on Tolerance
From Charles Davenport, Jr. editor of The Greensboro Guardian:
Intolerance is acceptable only toward Christians—particularly those who believe in American exceptionalism, traditional marriage, legal immigration, a common culture, official English, and long-established gender roles.
I’m sure it does feel that way to Tea Party conservatives, so let me say it again. Christians are welcome to think what they please and worship as they like. However, they do not enjoy the right to impose their will on the rest of us through political action. The rest of us have a patriotic duty to stand against the intolerance of Christofascism, lest tolerance disappear.
Are polygamists to be respected and valued as equals? How about those who engage in incestuous relationships? Do pedophiles qualify as tokens of diversity? What does the NCCJ think about Islamic fundamentalists who conduct public stonings of women and homosexuals? Must we respect the Islamic radical, and value him as an equal?
As regards NC Amendment One, these are all straw men arguments. No one who opposes discrimination of gays and unmarried couples is in favor of polygamy, incest or pedophilia. As to Islamic fundamentalists, they are no greater danger than the Christian fundamentalists.
Parents of children in the government schools should be “intolerant” of such far-left, sentimental nonsense. In fact, they could express their fondness for educational “diversity” by either enrolling their kids in private school, or by homeschooling.
Many Christian families have done just that, perpetuating future generations of intolerant dullards who fear everybody but those like themselves.
Davenport, having never thought for himself, does not know his own mind, but merely apes lies he’s been told. Introspection is not an ability sheep appear to possess.
For instance, what the hell is American exceptionalism? It looks to me like an excuse for Imperialism. It’s bad enough these cretins have to stick their big noses into our business, but they also feel compelled to spread their bullshit all over the world, and by force, if necessary. Well, I, for one, am tired of footing the bill for putting our military about in the name of a crusade. For that matter, our soldiers took an oath to protect the constitution and not some magical death cult.
Davenport apparently believes in a “common culture.” That’s a blatant admission of xenophobia. It’s not so much that the social retards hate everybody else, but that they fear them: the result having the effect of hatred.
