At zoo camp, I guess that every day at lunch, the girls in the 13-14 group talked about gay marriage.
Ok, these are 13 and 14 year olds. Why do they even care? And, why would they feel the need to talk about it so openly, like at lunch at zoo camp.
Now, Phil Robertson was fired from his own very profitable television show for saying that he is for traditional marriage.
The CEO of Mozilla, Brendan Eich, was fired, from his own company, for being for traditional marriage.
So, my child, at zoo camp, said, "Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, right?"
I told her that was ok. But, I also told her not to say anything else. She needs to just get up and walk away.
I would never, for one second, belittle the struggle of blacks in this country. There is no similarity between being black and being gay, none.
However, the persecution that blacks faced in the civil rights era was very similar to what we face now for standing up for Christian beliefs.
If my child had said that she was for traditional marriage, she would have been kicked out of zoo camp and she might have been charged with a hate crime for engaging in "hate speech."
We love everyone. But, being against gay marriage is something that has to be hidden. Just like people who had to hide their opinion that black people were equal to white people. We have to hide our (ludicrous) notion that ideas different from the narrow liberal agenda are acceptable.
And, just like then, that is ok now. We will show who we are by our love.
We will show everyone that our tolerant, open, loving, Christian agenda envelops EVERYONE. That is how we roll.
Who is with me?
