Jake gets his hate on over Chick-fil-A protest

Jake over at  Page One Kentucky has a problem with anti-gay haters. You know, all those people who went out and bought chicken at the local franchises all over the country who spewed venomous hate-filled rhetoric about gays, calling them names, insulting their family members, questioning their sanity, and attributing all kinds of false motives to them.

It was so bad that ...

Um, let's see. Let me make sure I've got my facts straight here... Oh. Gosh. I'm sorry. I've got this all turned around. As it turns out, it wasn't the people going to Chick-fil-A last Wednesday who were doing all these things.

It was actually Jake, at Page One, who was engaging in hate, calling State Rep. Kim King's husband her "puppet master," calling these people "homophobes," "obese white people," and "mouth-breathers." In fact, Jake frequently calls social conservatives he disagrees with "mouth-breathers," especially when he's trying to underscore how hateful they are and how loving and charitable he is.

Nevermind.

Martin,

Its really hard to take a hypocrite seriously when he complains about someone else's hypocrisy. Money spent a Chick-fil-a goes to lobby the government to suppress Jake's rights. And you expect him to feel kindly to the same people who have no tolerance for him.

So Jake is supporting the violation of rights of others (which are actually in the Constitution) in order to protect is own "rights" (which are not)?

KyCobb,

I think, by the way, that you need a remedial course in Hypocrisy 101. I'm not the one who goes around preaching to other people about tolerance and diversity. The whole point is the people who do are the ones engaging in intolerance and promoting uniformity of thought.

Capiche?

Martin,

First, I didn't know that people had a constitutional right to not be called mouthbreathers; you'll have to refresh me as to which amendment of the Bill of Rights covers that. Second, Jake absolutely has a constitutional right to equal protection of the law. Third, until you become a champion of tolerance and diversity, it is hypocritical of you to complain about intolerance of your intolerance.

Capiche?

Where did I say Jake didn't have a right to be hateful? I simply pointed out that it was rather hypocritical to do it in an article on how hateful the people he was speaking hatefully about were.

You really need to get that hypocrisy detector fixed, KyCobb.

Martin,

When you view tolerance and diversity as virtues you practice, rather than a privilege you can demand of others,
let me know.

Personally, I think this Jake guy was being a real jerk. There is no reason to generalize and assume that everyone who holds certain beliefs about the morality of homosexuality are "hateful" or "obese" because they eat at a fast food chicken joint.. However I do think that the religious right needs to take a hard look at the first amendment. If they want to legislate against homosexual marriage, they first need to fight for the abolition of the first amendment. After the first amendment is gone, I think they will find their rights to believe what they believe taken away far faster than any homosexual marriage legislation. My question to Christians is this: Are you willing to relinquish the protections the first amendment affords you in order to legislate your religious beliefs upon the rest of this country? Continue to believe what you want. Refuse to recognize the marriages of gay people in your churches, but stay out of the personal lives of everyone else. Please.
