The new SA

Straight Advocates of same-sex marriage.
.
Any opposition or criticism to anything related to gay sex, gay culture, gay marriage, and the homosexualist movement is now considered a "vicious" attack upon all persons with homosexual inclination. Indeed, Congress passed the hate crimes bill providing gay people with special protections, a move which could likely lead to criminalizing Catholic/Christian teaching on the subject.
.
Under the "hate-crimes" legislation, pastors could be prosecuted for preaching the biblical view of homosexuality. Similar laws have been used to prosecute religious speech in the U.S. and abroad.
.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, hosted a special meeting last night to highlight the dangers and concerns related to the bill.
.
“Under this legislation, justice will no longer be equal," he said before the meeting. "Instead, justice will depend on the … protected status of the victim, setting up different penalties for the same crime.
.
"I support continuing the American tradition of equal justice under the law, and I oppose this unconstitutional ‘thought crimes’ bill.”

.
I believe such laws have been enacted in Canada and the European Union, and it is a work in progress in Brazil. Brazilian President Luiz Lula is promising homosexual leaders that he will continue to seek to criminalize speech that is critical of homosexuality. - Source
.
When homosexuality is politically opportune.
.
The Governor of New York, "David Paterson, whose approval ratings have plummeted to all-time lows, has recently deflected attention from the poor state of the economy in New York and begun to publicly push for same-sex "marriage" in the state." - Source
.
Paterson is lying. He is playing into the hands of gay activists and homosexualists, joining them in revisionist distortions of history. He is using gays to promote himself. Gays in turn are using him to promote their agenda.
.
Accusing religious leaders of opposing same sex marriage out of guilt, Paterson stated, ""Where were these leaders of faith when college students of gay and lesbian orientation were beaten and often brutalized for expressing their feelings for each other?" he asked during a speech at the "LGBT Equality Justice Day" event." - Source
.
Is he nuts? When was there such a mass persecution across college campuses? Certainly there have been male and female students and adults beaten or killed in gay bashing, but crimes such as these have never been sanctioned and are against the law. Yes, horrible crimes have been committed, I think of Matthew Shepherd, the kid who was beaten and set on fire - although some say it wasn't a gay bashing, but a robbery and senseless beating. I don't know - sounded like a gay bashing to me.
.
That is not my point however. What about mothers who kill their kids, women who are beaten and raped and murdered by husbands, boyfriends and men who hate women? What about child molesters and killers, and all the other crimes committed against human beings? We already have laws against these crimes, my question is why do gays feel the need for special protection under the law? They already have equal protection under the law.
.
The blind leading the blind - makes no sense.
.
Paterson further went on to support his accusations and play into the favor of LGBT activists who know better, as he asked "why religious leaders didn’t speak out in protection of homosexuals in the past, saying that they were silent when gays were "collectively blamed" for the expansion of HIV in the early 1980s."
.
Actually, the Catholic Church never got into the blame game, and the Catholic Church was the first to minister to and care for these people.
.
"Contrary to the governor's claim that opponents of same-sex "marriage" were silent in the 1980s, Dennis Poust, the Director of Communication for the New York Catholic Conference, said that the Catholic Church in New York was "one of the first responders" to the AIDS crisis. "We’ll hold our record up against anyone’s when it comes to supporting the dignity of all people, including homosexual men and women" he said.
.
"The governor in his remarks, that was the most offensive thing, was the idea that we somehow didn’t do anything for people with AIDS," Poust said. The Church was the first to react in the early ‘80s to the HIV crises, by establishing clinics and care facilities for people suffering from the "death sentence," he emphasized. At the time, recalled Poust, Governor Mario Cuomo "praised the Church for really being the leader in the entire state of serving those with this deadly disease." - Source
.
All in the family.
.
According to Poust, Director of Communication for the New York Catholic Conference, society is seeing the results of "casual divorce" from the '70s and the "out of wedlock children" of the '80s, as the children of this generation now have "all these [psychological] problems" and warned that if gay "marriage" is passed, we will see a "further devaluation of the traditional family" and the result will be a "disaster."
.
Once again, I am reminded of Cardinal Siri's warnings concerning the change of feminine psychology and the harmful effects upon the family:
.
"The changing of feminine psychology does fundamental and, in the long run, irreparable damage to the family, to conjugal fidelity, to human affections and to human society. True, the effects of wearing unsuitable dress are not all to be seen within a short time. But one must think of what is being slowly and insidiously worn down, torn apart, perverted.
.
Why, we ask, ever since men have been men, or rather since they became civilized -- why have men in all times and places been irresistibly borne to make a differentiated division between the functions of the two sexes? Do we not have here strict testimony to the recognition by all mankind of a truth and a law above man?
.
The consequences of such violations are not a new outline of man, but disorders, hurtful instability of all kinds, the frightening dryness of human souls, the shattering increase in the number of human castaways, driven long since out of people's sight and mind to live out their decline in boredom, sadness and rejection. Aligned on the wrecking of the eternal norms are to be found the broken families, lives cut short before their time, hearths and homes gone cold, old people cast to one side, youngsters willfully degenerate and -- at the end of the line -- souls in despair and taking their own lives. All of which human wreckage gives witness to the fact that the "line of God" does not give way, nor does it admit of any adaption to the delirious dreams of the so-called philosophers! - Source

The SA leader, Ernst Rohm, a close friend of Hitler, and a known homosexual, was eventually murdered by the SS in a purge which became known as The Night of the Longknives. There is evidence homosexuality was more or less condoned within the SA, to what extent has often been disputed. Link removed.

  1. How can you, as a historian, source back to Scott Lively?

    This isn't an "attack" on anyone's faith. It's an honest inquiry.

    Holocaust historical revisionists have a long way to go in the credibility department.

  2. I have found similar documentation elsewhere, but I can't recall my sources at the moment. Anyway - since this fellow's credibility is in in doubt - I will remove the link.

    Gays do not already have equal protection under the law, and this legislation seeks to afford equal protection. Gay people of all ages have been bashed and battered and it's too long been tolerated in America. Frequently the police don't properly investigate these kinds of hate crimes. How many gay people have been brutalized simply because they walked outside of a gay bar? I could provide hundreds of examples, but I think your readers already know all about it.

    The bill is passed. Why not revisit the issue in six months, and then talk about all of the pastors who have been prosecuted for speaking against homosexuality or defending traditional marriage?

  4. Thom - I forgot to add - I am not a historian - simply a student of history.

    Michael - That is true - millions of women have been raped and brutalized as well. Just remember at one time many cases of male against female rape cases were not investigated well either - even worse - it wasn't uncommon to blame the victim. Times have changed - without any need for hate crimes legislation. I think you protest way too much.

    But don't worry - the hype worked - gays are getting all of the special protection they want.

  5. In reality, "gay sex" is just part of the entire spectrum of sexual sin - there is no more reason to get anymore crazy about men sodomizing each other than unmarried hetero teen kids having sex. In fact the social damage caused by teen sex and their pregnancies is largely ignored and probably more expensive to society. Heterosexual sex outside of marriage, divorce and remarriage, all are adultery and fornication, and birth control really is just another form of sodomy - the Manichaeans practiced similar things.

    Two men having sex with each other are just as likely to incur God's punishments as the secretly contracepting Lector and her husband the Extraordinary Communion Minister aren't they? So why the double standard among the faithful? It is all wrong.

  6. Leo - are you drunk? Bishop Tobin seems to think it's a big deal, and urged Catholics not to be so apathetic.

    “Abysmal” Catholic apathy must be overcome to oppose those who are “fiercely determined” to impose homosexual “marriage,” Bishop of Providence, Rhode Island Thomas J. Tobin has warned. Reasserting Catholic teaching on sexual morality, he also said that same-sex “marriage” will endanger religious freedom.

    ... two teens have heterosexual sex outside of marriage is a sin, however it is still within natural law ... homosexual sex is a graver sin because it goes against natural law ... hence a greater threat to a stable society ... no double standard ... just different response because of the different degrees of seriousness.

  8. I listened to Barney Frank last week when he was pushing this legislation against homosexual hate crimes, and I thought that next it would be in Mr.Franks best interest to legislate a hate crime bill protecting people who sound funny when they speak. :0

    Yeah , I know I'm really sinful, and sometimes I'm not so passive with my aggression.

  10. The greater problem is, men have been emasculated. By women? Well, by whom else?? Certainly not by God. Women have gone leagues of death beyond "equality."

    Let's make it an exciting thing to be a man, again.. a glorious thing, something looked up to. We two genders have blended just like the two parties did --and we, too, ended up with nothing specific, only the "my right is righter than yours".

    I walked into the kitchen of the nursing home one day, and my heart fell to hear Melissa Ethridge on the radio. I said (aloud! gasp!!) that she had been one of my heroes 'til I found out she was queer. The lady of the kitchen skidded to a halt in great shock, "Are you saying you have a problem with gays??" As soon as she put the knife down, I said, "I sure am saying that."

    One was hoping at least children might be protected from living in a "gay" scene. (What's wrong with having/adopting kittens or puppies instead?) I know a young man whose counselor mom all but sentenced him to be someone's anal ragdoll -- that's where they really get beaten up. At 19 he was a nervous wreck, a chain-smoker, and very thin. His eyes haunt me. He needed a MAN in his life. All he got was bullish females, and womanish males.

  11. How did we get from an amended federal hate crimes bill to "anal ragdolls?"

    Some people always go straight to sex....

    Stop. It tickles.

  12. Thom weren't the "Anal Ragdolls" a punk rock band from Columbus? I thought I saw their records at Magnolia's.

    "Some people always go straight to sex.." Yes, that'd be *gay* men, wouldn't it, Thom? Surely it's not pigeons one seeks in the dark park, nor curative waters in the baths. And calling out 14 yr old boys is a hate crime (against God, too), that will have grand if merely temporal protection, now. However, I can't help thinking that's a lot like protecting those who demanded the new visitors (angels)in town be handed over, so they could be *sampled*. Humor is humor only if it's funny. If someone loses their gender, physical health, or mental health via someone else's itch-y lifestyle, it isn't funny.

    Heres one to scare the moral righteouness crap out of everyone, straight and gay: Thomistic morality principles declare masturbation to be more UNNATURAL and IMMORAL than sexual intercourse of the star8 or gay variety. Why? Because even if gay it is WITH another person in an attmept at bonding/affection which is one of the "ends" of sex/ Masturbation is solely introverted, loving oneself (so to speak) and had NO parity with the ens of sex whatsoever.

    So why isn't Bishop Tobin et al ranting about all the Cahtolic boys masturbating and why aren't they demanding national laws forbidding it?

    Just so food for thought.

  16. Yeah, Grandma, and straight people don't have their perverts, too?

  17. Oh David,

    Thomas Aquinas did not say that the sin of masturbation (sometimes called the sin of Onan as it related to birth control) was worse than homosexuality - although it did make his list of grave sins he considered worse than illicit sex - 'illicit' meaning, sex outside of wedlock.


    I believe Thomas cites the following as grave sins - begining with the less grave ending with the most grave of sexual sins:

    *ejaculation without coitus, that is, masturbation;

    *sexual relationas with an "undue sex" (homosexuality);

    *sex with non-human creatures, (bestiality).


    Masturbation is still a grave (mortal) sin. So, you shouldn't be doing it.

  18. Here ya go buddy:

    St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, Pt. II-II, Q. 154, A. 11: “I answer that, As stated above (A6,9) wherever there occurs a special kind of deformity whereby the venereal act is rendered unbecoming, there is a determinate species of lust. This may occur in two ways: First, through being contrary to right reason, and this is common to all lustful vices; secondly, because, in addition, it is contrary to the natural order of the venereal act as becoming to the human race: and this is called "the unnatural vice." This may happen in several ways. First, by procuring pollution, without any copulation, for the sake of venereal pleasure: this pertains to the sin of "uncleanness" which some call "effeminacy." Secondly, by copulation with a thing of undue species, and this is called "bestiality." Thirdly, by copulation with an undue sex, male with male, or female with female, as the Apostle states (Romans 1:27): and this is called the "vice of sodomy." Fourthly, by not observing the natural manner of copulation, either as to undue means, or as to other monstrous and bestial manners of copulation.”

  19. Forgot to add - so stop trying to jerk me around - LOL! Get it? Yeah - it's a sin - you can't be chaste if you are doing it.

    Knock it off and be a man.

    Women do it too - knock it off and quit trying to be men.
