Because every time a domestic partner gets insured, a church disintegrates

by Jeremy Hooper

Responding to a recent Human Rights Campaign report showing that 253 of the Fortune 500 companies offer domestic partner benefits and other gay-friendly policies, the Concerned Women For America's Robert Knight tells Focus on the Family's CitizenLink:

"The real danger here ultimately is to Christian employers. What began as something voluntary will become mandatory," he said. "It's really not about extending tolerance, but about putting corporate American power behind the homosexual agenda, which is aimed directly at the church."

And that's exactly what DP benefits are all about -- going after the church. In fact, we gays sometimes like to take the good health that's provided to us by our partner's health insurance and mockingly shake our non-ill booties right in the middle of various Sunday services. Sometimes we even like to take the prescription drugs that we were able to more cost-effectively acquire and throw them at the backs of various members of the congregation's heads. If that hasn't disrupted the church service enough, we jump up in the middle of the sermon and yell, "My partner was my date to the company Christmas party, and my open gayness did not get me disciplined in the least. In fact, my boss is having us both over for dinner tomorrow night. We're having lasagna. So suck it." After all, when are we gays not trying to undermine religion?

Conceding that avoiding all gay-friendly companies would be impossible, Knight goes on to add:

"The conscientious Christian consumer needs to differentiate," he said, "between companies that are on the lower tier of homosexual activism, but aren't actively aiding the homosexual-activist movement."

No suggestions from Knight as to how these shoppers should gauge the companies' pushes for acceptance. However, we sincerely hope he'll let us know when he comes up with a way to measure, so that we and our equality-loving peeps can do the opposite.
