I wrote recently about the lack of logic possessed by those who support homosexual marriage and was accused of ranting. I was surprised at the response, but I should not have been.
Accusations of ‘ranting’ are no substitute for detailed debate, but they do substitute as arguments for those who are unable to articulately defend a position. And, as anyone who has dared stick their head above the parapet to defend marriage will know, the illogical and emotional arguments you encounter become increasingly personal.
Out of charity, I don’t normally print the responses I get from the illogical. But sometimes, it serves a greater good.
Steven Carter sent me this gem today. It is reproduced, word-for-word, in all its glory below.
Hi Bernard; what can l say. When religion comes into anything, your bound to have the blinkers on. God created, Adam and Eve; not Adam and Bruce. We should all live in a total heteroseual society, and all poofs who want to get married, should be flogged and stoned in a public place. Is that it. And you probably teach this to your children. What a shameful disgrace. I am glad that there are people like you around, because, it brings you to the surface. You seem to think that, all this strange evilness, will undermine the fabric of society. In the case of Cate McGregor; she is extremely respected, well educated, and a total professional, who is supported by her superiors. The only message you send out is negative, and to like minded people such as yourself. Its not clever. Its boring, and its very Fred Nile. You have no right to tell another person, what they should do in this regard. You have the right to an opinion, but be informed. Transgender people believe that they are a man trapped in a womans body, and vice versa. I dont fully undersatand it, but , l really dont think about it much either. Rules will always be made, by stoggy, old, Heterosexual men, who pass their thoughts on to, the next generation. Its tedious, and you should send a more, positive message to the community. And if your really worried about the gay, and transgerder people that much; you should perhaps, change your last name. GAYNOR. Maybe, STAIGHTNOR. Kind regards, Steve.
I’ll just make a couple of quick points about this.
- Pro-homosexuals seem to think that they are open-minded. Yet they continually claim that Christianity should be excluded from debate. If they are so open minded, they would welcome it as part of any discussion. And, all due credit to Steve, he managed to get through his piece without using the ‘bigot’ word. Many others are not so rational. On the one hand they cry bigot, while on the other refusing to even accept that others are entitled to a religious belief or to hold any position that is not in 100 per cent conformity with their own views. This position is pretty much perfectly aligned to the definition of a bigot in the dictionary.
- Pro-homosexuals like to pretend that they are nice people. But they constantly use words and terms that any nice person would refrain from.
- Pro-homosexual people, like Steve, think that it is perfectly logical to tell me that I can’t tell another person what to do. I’ll point out that I don’t actually tell other people what to do. I’ve never said to another person that is not under my authority to ‘do this’, or ‘you can’t do that’. Pro-homosexuals give me such orders, direction and guidance. All the time. By the way, writing about Hell, or opposing homosexual marriage is not telling other people what to do. It is simply pointing out the consequences of a chosen course of action and standing up for my political rights and beliefs.
- Pro-homosexuals like to make claims that those who do not support their activities hate them. I don’t. It is possible to disagree with someone without hating them. However, that concept is not well understood within the homosexual community. Steve thinks that I want them all flogged and stoned. Actually, I don’t want that either. Nor do I teach such silly ideas to my children. But, I do know some people that do. They follow a religion that starts with a big ‘I’ and ends in ‘slam’. But when I point out that those who follow Mohammad want homosexuals to die, or to be locked up, or to be tortured, it is the homosexuals who cry that I am racist. Logic is lacking, once again. And, by the way, just because I am so ready to point out such problems in Islam, it does not mean that I don’t think the religion should not be debated. On the contrary, a little more debate about Islam would be a good thing for this country.
- Pro-homosexuals believe that they are positive people. But just because you are ‘for’ something, it does not mean that your position is positive. Just as pro-legalised drug advocates support a position that undermines society, so do pro-homosexual people. There is nothing good that can come from homosexual activity. Nothing. Even if it is just a private affair. Homosexuality produces nothing good at all. On the other hand, marriage is completely different. It produces children and is the best way to raise the next generation. That’s not bad at all, and that’s why I support it so strongly.
- Pro-transgender people like to think that LTCOL McGregor is professional. He is not. No one who signs off on emails with the words ‘Cate McGregor AM – suck on that f**kwit’ is professional. He is also not a woman and anyone who claims otherwise is supporting a lie. It does not matter how good it makes you feel to believe that delusion, it is still not true. And as Steve so aptly pointed out, LTCOL McGregor is well-supported by his superiors. Considering that he has been found by Defence to have breached Defence policies, while all Defence investigations have cleared me, the situation is more than a little absurd. Such is life.
- Pro-transgender people like to think that thinking something makes it true. But then, just like Steve, they highlight the fact that they don’t think much at all. If someone thinks that they are a woman and they actually have a male body, it would suggest that the problem is not in the flesh, but in the mind. And it’s not just me saying it – embarrassed medical ‘professionals’ are too.
- Pro-homosexual people like to make fun of my last name. I’m glad it brings such mirth and merriment. However, once again I’ll point out that if the substance of an attack against you is a comment ridiculing your last name, it’s a good sign that you have won the debate.
