The Left Is Intolerant of the Right’s Tolerance

The left is getting tired of the tolerance of Christians and conservatives and Republicans and well, Americans for that matter. So tired, in fact, that they are hell-bent on imposing upon everyone their ideology. We must accept what they believe to be true. This is true of history, science, government, and morality. They don’t want lip service, they want confession, repentance and acceptance. Their is no room for “diversity” of opinion.

Back in September the California legislature shelved or put on “inactive” SB323, a bill that would have forced you and me to accept “Gender Identity”! Not just be tolerant of individuals (which we already are), but to openly accept it or be taxed “penalized” by force of law — much like the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare.

Put on your hard hats, the politically correct fascists are at it again. Their utopian visions will be achieved even if it means setting aside their so-called tolerant, peaceful, pacifist self delusions and beating everyone into submission through legislative action. They cannot win with words, so they’ll impose through the hammer of law.

Religious based groups from Boy and Girl Scouts to Special Olympics, 4-H, Future Farmers of America and even youth sports teams like Little League baseball and Pop Warner football will be forced to accept and acknowledge LGBT (Lesbians Gays Bi-Sexual and Transgender) individuals under penalty of law by revoking their tax exempt status for non compliance. SB323 has been shelved until 2014, but make no mistake, it will be resurrected.

SB323 is a clever way to kill two birds with one stone. Knowing that devout Christians will not give in to this immorality — it becomes a shrewd back door plan by the liberal progressive politically correct mob to gain the bounty of tax revenue currently outside their reach of non-profits. But that isn’t the end of it. These ideological utopians know full well that — this foot in the door bill — will allow them to have their cake and eat it too. Ultimately their desire is to impose their will on all individuals who fail to bow down to the golden calf of gender identity, which must necessarily include the rejection of God’s prohibition on sexual immorality.

The tyrannical boot of those intolerant to God’s law, will, in good conscience, strip from you your freedom of conscience, under the guise of tolerance, fairness and equality. A foundational fundamental principle our Founding Fathers embedded in our Constitution within the Bill of Rights First Amendment, and ultimately what they pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor upon. Make no mistake about it. If this laws passes, you will eventually be forced to accept this abomination in all aspects of your life. You will be forced to accept it in your private organizations, churches, and it will be a tool of indoctrination in the schools, even home schools, through mandatory curriculum.

toleranceThe issues of LGBT, from gay rights to homosexual marriage, so permeates our society today that we are swimming in it. It is everywhere — cheered, celebrated — from Hollywood to the White House, from businesses to universities, from public school class rooms to liberal churches, and they say it must also now be part of your worldview as well.

Actually some of us — like those in California — are drowning in it. The religiously intolerant in our culture today wield the club of submission — albeit falsely — under the guise of equality and fairness. Many never speak up for fear of the reputation bruising lashes from a bullying political correct clan that forces those who reject their sexual perversions to sit through punitive sensitive training classes or worse have their reputations dismembered in the public square.

We are living at a time of profound cultural degradation akin to having to sit in a vile cesspool of societal sin and pretend not to notice. The stench of immorality fills the air. Many attempt with all their might not to vomit on its vapors because it will only give them away in a culture that seeks them out and turns them in. I, for, one choke on the thought of what our children will face in this brave new world into which America collapses. The nation we are leaving to our children is certainly not the nation our parents and grand-parents left to us, let alone the nation of virtue our Founding Fathers so honorably gave to us.
