Ian Reisner, a homosexual hotelier who hosted an event for presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, apologized this week to the homosexual community:
The two gay hoteliers who hosted an event for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz apologized on Sunday for what both called an error in judgment.
Ian Reisner, who co-hosted the “fireside chat,” apologized to the gay community and others in a Facebook post late Sunday for his “poor judgment.”
“I am shaken to my bones by the e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls of the past few days. I made a terrible mistake,” Reisner wrote in his apology post.
So the homosexual community brought the hammer down on Reisner simply because he hosted a political event for the “anti-homosexual” Ted Cruz. Does that smell like hypocrisy to anyone else? Let’s frame this another way. Say a blatantly homosexual political action group wanted to have an event at a Christian-owned hotel. The hotel-owner allows the event, and then Christians all over the country send in angry “e-mails, texts, postings and phone calls.” Probably not. Why? Because Christians know we hardly have a choice at this point.
That’s the key here. The anger over Reisner’s choice exists only because Reisner still has a choice. Christian hotel owners really don’t. If Christian hotel owners denied a homosexual event merely because it was a homosexual event, they would be fined, threatened, and publicly crucified. But if a homosexual business owner denies service to an anti-homosexual on ideological grounds, that is lauded as grit and conviction?
I keep saying this, but it needs to be said over and over again apparently. You can’t effectively have freedom if it isn’t equally available to everyone. Either homosexuals need to be comfortable with denying and being denied service on a free and voluntary basis, or they need to resign themselves to an enslaved culture where no one is allowed to exercise any but the consensus idea.
