Gay hypocricy alert level is now ... orange

Let's see now, what do you think people would say if several gays walked into a religious neighborhood and the people in that neighborhood got out into the street shouting profanities at them, and saying, "And we don't ever want them coming back. Do you understand all that homosexuals?! Do you understand?! I'm talking to you people! Yeah you! Piece of s**t! Stay out of our neighborhood if you don't like us."

How long would it be before major newspapers would condemn these religious people for their intolerance? In seconds, I mean?

Ask this as you look at the response of these gays to a few Christians who unwisely made their way into a gay section of town, apparently with evangelical intentions. I mean, like, what were they expecting? Tolerance?

Lisa,

I'm sorry, I had to delete your post for content reasons. Feel free to repost the thought, it's just that there are students who frequent this blog and we need to take that into account in the terminology.

Thanks.

You meaning, like all the newspaper reports on the beating gay men take for going into the wrong bars?

OneBrow,

I have searched my memory and cannot find any recollection of gay men being beat up at Christian bars.

Gee, it's almost like those thjings don't get reported very often.

Hmmm....

So some people don't like a bunch of wannabe FOPs*. What's the problem, Martin?

FOP = Follower of Phelps

Art,

Maybe you could specify what these people doing that was like what Phelps does.

Art said...

Demonstrating at a memorial for a gay rights activist recently deceased.

Yup, sounds like that good Christian Freddy.

Art,

And what did their "demonstrating" consist of?

And what did their "demonstrating" consist of?

Words. Just like the demonstrations of Phelps consist of words. Are you indicating there is a difference in intent between the actions of Phelps and this group on the video? If so, what do you claim is the difference?
