BREAKING: Gays would like to be accepted

by Jeremy Hooper

In a "FIRST-PERSON" for BP News, Kelly Boggs of the Baptist Message newspaper presents an absolutely biting expose into the true nature behind us gays and our intentions. He begins his argument by saying:

Homosexual activists, and those who support their cause, contend that all they really want is understanding and tolerance for their lifestyle. Suggest that their true agenda is to force societal acceptance of their behavior as natural and normal, and you will be labeled a homophobic alarmist.

Uhm, we do and you will? Forgive us if we haven't been clear, but we're not asking for your tolerance; we're saying we deserve respect. As a movement, we are unwavering in the notion that we deserve equal treatment, no ifs, ands, or marriage amendments. Suggest otherwise, and we'll simply clarify our intent: a world where we live without any sort of societal stigmatization/ persecution/ discrimination/ marginalization.

Boggs then goes on to tell how Soulforce is unequivocally calling for such respect in their current Equality Ride, presenting the info as if he's "found them out" in their dastardly deeds:

But there is one activist group that makes no bones about the fact that they want every facet of American culture to embrace homosexuality. In fact, this organization’s main target for protest is the church and its related institutions.

Known as Soulforce, this group’s goal, according to its website, “is freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from religious and political oppression.” According to Soulforce, much of the church in America is guilty of “spiritual violence” for having the audacity to maintain the biblical proposition that homosexuality is a sin.

But he then says:

Some will argue that Soulforce is only one small segment of the “gay rights” movement and that the larger body of homosexual activists do not want to force the church to accept their behavior, only to tolerate it.

Uh, again -- who's arguing? On this issue we seem to be in full agreement -- we want to be accepted, not merely tolerated. You've got our number, Kel; we just weren't aware anyone was hiding it.

Boggs then concludes his thesis by saying:

The goal of homosexual activists is to force the whole of society to accept their behavior as natural and normal.

Revelatory. Be sure to keep an eye out for Mr. Bogg's next "FIRST-PERSON," when we hear the argument: "Donald Trump likes attention and money...he's not just in a competition to see how many buildings and items he can adorn with his moniker, he actually likes being filthy rich...Conclusion: Mr. Trump enjoys currency and fame," will blow our collective minds when it rips the lid off the long-held fallacy that Trump's indifferent to finances.
