The Supreme Court Just Doesn’t Understand…

The Supreme Court Doesn’t Understand that Racial Prejudice is Different from Aversion to Homosexuality


The politicians are trying to remove colleges’ tax exempt status if they do not agree to same sex marriage.  This was heard last month before the Supreme Court in Obergefell v. Hodges.


In the Bob Jones case the Court held that a college would not be tax exempt if it “opposed interracial marriage or interracial dating.”


Samuel Alito wondered if  a college should have its tax exemption removed if it went against same sex marriage. As if they were identical.


What kind of stupid judges do we have when they consider that comparison is identity?  Can’t Alito dream that prejudice against the color of one’s skin is not the same as repulsion against sexual perversion.


MLK said that, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”


I dare say that he would consider homosexuality an objectionable part of the content of their character and would in no way compare it to his fight for equality and civil rights.


I asked a black friend of mine in my gym if he did or didn’t object to the way the gays identified with the blacks in their struggle for acceptance.  He resented the comparison.  So do I and I’m neither black nor gay.  They are unrelated.  There is no way that gays should piggyback on the suffering that blacks went through as slaves.


Alito’s wondering if tax exemptions for racially integrated schools should be instituted for schools accepting gay marriage is simply naïve.  They are unrelated.  One is a mere skin color and the other is a  divergent urge that doesn’t apply to ninety-eight percent of the people.


Darwin’s survival instinct makes homosexuality difficult to accept even in the most liberal mind. It’s empathetic adoption is a sham. Even liberals are not viscerally OK with it.


It’s sad for the gays.  But the body is what the body is and organically dictates the mind’s thinking.
