The Forces of Darkness

February 11, 2012

From The Evil Dr. Guarino:

I think the pro-gay marriage forces are the bigots, because they are the ones hardened in an unreasonable position. They are the ones seeking to impose an unacceptable vision on the rest of society. They are the forces of darkness. They are the ones trying to achieve the cultural normalization of homosexuality. They are the ones trying to destroy the traditional concept of marriage and the family. Those are some of the same parties who have supported using the courts and changes in the law and in popular culture to spur the dissolution of the family for a period of upwards of 60-70 years.

Joey G. is infamous for battling the so-called “gay sociopolitical agenda.” This is consistent with social retards such as Tim Dunkin who refer to a “gay lobby.”

It is true that everybody but the far right has been struggling to include families in all their forms in recognition of benefits and protections, as is consistent with the dissolution of the nuclear family. However, homosexuality had nothing to do with this. The emancipation of women meant they no longer required a man to survive and subsequently abusive ones got the boot and many women decided they didn’t need one in the first place.

It really is pathetic watching the social retards try to turn back time by demonizing everyone who is so enlightened as to reject a Biblical worldview. Indeed, religious freedom is a cherished protection, but the imposition on the rest of us is not.

People like Guarino and Dunkin want to believe their way of life is being threatened by a Godless liberal agenda, when in fact, many liberals are quietly religious. We understand that a tenet of Christian fundamentalism embraces evangelism, but they must comprehend that we have the right to say no. Rejection of their beliefs does not make the rest of us “forces of darkness” or adherents to “the cultural normalization of homosexuality.” We defend gay rights simply because they are citizens along with the rest of us. It does not mean we hold up their lifestyle as being favored. Indeed, I have no interest in such a thing and actually feel pity for those so inclined.

At the risk of repeating myself, it is important to recognize that Guarino, with his insistence on promoting the hatred of intolerance, is neither a Christian nor a conservative. He is technically an authoritarian and given an opportunity would be an agent of fascism.

    The Muslims in Iran are the good guys, right?

      Fec, please re-post that link to “Muslims” and “Iran.” According to Kenneth, I missed the crux of your argument.

        Me too. I bet he meant to comment under the Liberal Thugs? post.

        BTW, thanks for dredging up this piece of filth from Guarino and posting it at Ed Cone’s. Otherwise, I would have missed it.

    I think a lot of people missed it, but I don’t blame them because many brain cells are wasted reading through the hate-fueled drivel that oozes from Heir Guarino’s online Reichstag.

      I sure missed it. Obviously, many of us believe it is important to ride herd on Guarino in order to marginalize his influence and use him as an object lesson to inform others. Altemeyer suggests that he may be one of those most dangerous of sociopaths: the double high authoritarian. If that is the case, we may indeed be dealing with an individual with characteristics very comparable to Adolph Hitler or in his case, Benito Mussolini.

      Also notice his complete absence from local politics. He knows he lacks the personal charisma to deal in the honest arena. He is undoubtedly waiting for a crisis and will attempt to take advantage of a societal tipping point. I believe it is our most important responsibility to be ready to act against him at that moment. By doing all we can beforehand, our job will be made easier at that time.

      Additionally, I think those clowns at C4GC are fully prepared to be his brown shirts. And while we know of those who have chosen to be visible, without infiltration there is no way of knowing how many of the huge congregation at Lawndale Baptist Church stand ready to assist them.

    No one associated with C4gc will ever be elected to public office so long as they claim Jodi, Doug, Barrett, and now Joe among their ranks. Their baggage is overwhelming. Should any one of them decide to make a run, I do hope they consult Jeff Hyde before they do so.

      Never forget: Hyde got a lot of votes last time out, and they almost took over the Guilford GOP. Ignorance and apathy help them. We are the only thing that stands in the way of them getting elected next time out.

    I have no interest in same gender sex, but see no reason it should be a matter of political or social interest.

    I, however, see absolutely no reason for pity, given that the life of such individuals is likely a major opportunity for spiritual growth.

      same gender sex,

      That should read ‘same gender relationships’. I was musing about how hard it is for me to be attracted to a male in a physical relationship, when typing that line.

        Dig that. Thanks for keeping me honest. My pity extends only so far as my lack of objectivity.

    I am not sure why those that oppose gay marriage are stating it will bring down the value of marriage. I hate to bring this out and I hope it is not a news flash but marriage today is in crisis and it has nonthing to do with gays.

    We have people divorcing because of adultery and other issues.

    Louis CK articulated my perspective quite well…

    “two guys are in love and they can’t get married because you don’t want to talk to your ugly kid for five fucking minutes…”

    I just do not understand why all the drama from the groups. The gay community for years has been in our society.We have and had gays in Hollywood, the music world, art world, and in our own backyard, doctors, lawyers, miltitary, police, fire, ems.

    The reason I do not support the amendment is because it is not about marriage but about hate. We our trying to make hate legal again. All the haters need to wake up, gays will be part of our society, amendment or no amendment.

    • February 13, 2012 11:09 pm

      Gays are indeed a bulwark of our civilization. And there is no need to hate them, as many do a fine job of hating themselves. The irony is a lot of them are just as vigilant about converting people as the fundies who persecute them. However, in a toss up, I’ll take the gays over the fundies every time.
