New conservative meme: Gays who stand against persecution are [insert militant group]
WE ALL ARE MORMONS....by Rabbi Shifren
We are living in an era of insanity! Witness the latest attempt to remake the nature of our country, founded and established on certain principles that have been the envy of the entire world. The latest assault on ourcountry and its values comes in the form of vicious and criminal violence against the Mormon church in Westwood, California
Interesting how the selective self-righteous indignation on the part of the radical Gay activists is played out here: they bewail the blow to freedom and justice! But I thought we just had elections, where the majority of Californians expressed their views in a free and open manner. Are we not a nation of laws? Dare we relive the McCarthy era, where Americans were harassed and threatened with the loss of their jobs for believing in a certain way? If the Gay radicals should have their way, untold numbers of Americans would live under the threat of the Gay-Lesbian "thought police," where individuals that reject the Gay lifestyle would be sought out and have sanctions brought against them.
It's bad enough for those working in the entertainment industry here in Los Angeles, where a fog of political correctness and a bending over backwards to accommodate, even promote Gay lifestyle is in full gear. Let none dare say that this type of activity is anathema to our country, our morality, and the debauchery of our young people.
Let it be stated unequivocally: The radical Gay attack on the Mormons is the shot over the bow against the United States of America. There was a time when what a man did in his bedroom was sanctified between himself and G-d. Now we are being served an "in-your-face" smorgasbord of smut and licentiousness as being between people who only "want their civil rights."
Hogwash! We are dealing with the equivalent of a moral takeover of the country that has as its bedrock a belief in G-d and His promise for humanity. They don't want civil rights! What they desire is quasi Gay/Lesbian hegemony, where a huge "bookburning," reminiscent of the Nazis, will purge any remnants of the "Christian, White, mainstream America" that has given ALL AMERICANS the most profound scope of freedom, liberty, and justice that Mankind has yet to experience.
People have perhaps wondered: why the Mormons? Answer: they are a small, yet vocal Christian minority. They have been selected by the mobs as vulnerable, a group that might not have such massive support among America's Christians.
We who are friends of the Mormons, their patriotism, their family values, will not falter in our continued support of these dear Americans. Let us recall the Christian minister Niemoller, whose admonition during those dark years of Nazi Germany moved us to our core:
"When they came for the gypsies, I said nothing, because I wasn't a gypsy. When they came for the homosexuals, I said nothing, because I wasn't a homosexual. When they came for the Jews, I said nothing, because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I said nothing, because I wasn't a Catholic......then they came for me, and there was no one left to defend me."
My fellow Americans, in the coming battle for the heart and soul of America and everything we cherish, may this call to arms be the mantra of every concerned patriot:
"WE ALL ARE MORMONS!"
But the really interesting thing for us? That Niemöller poem that Rabbi Shifren quotes did not, in its original form, even mention gays, yet here he has made a point of including homosexuals as one of the persecuted groups. Does he not see anything odd about that? Here he is going ballistic about the "immoral" gays and their "licentiousness," yet he fully admits they have been (/still are) a persecuted minority? It just seems odd.
But then again, why try to make sense out of text that compares those who are standing for their civil rights with those who slaughtered millions of innocent people?
WE ALL ARE MORMONS [Law Watch Dog]
Wow, what a line-up. So gays are acting exactly like:
-Joseph McCarthy, who persecuted homosexuals
-the Thought Police, who persecuted all sexual freedom
-the Nazis, who persecuted homosexuals
Seriously? And "Christian, White, mainstream America" is just the most freedom-granting thing ever? And the whole world's super jealous of our stodgy old marriage 'principles'? Really?
As if any other nation in the world wishes it had more upstart Christian cults like the Mormons, but fewer clean and industrious queers. I feel like this could be a failed attempt at sarcasm, but more likely it's a failed attempt at humanity. I heave a heavy sigh for posterity.

Rabbi Shifren asks a very pertinent question, "Why the Mormons?" His answer, however is rather obfuscatory. The correct answer is that the Mormon Church launched a very organized political attack on another minority with an agenda predicated on the negation of the other minority's rights.

I think he just quickly cut and pasted the Niemöller Poem from somewhere else and forgot to remove the homosexual part.

This didn't take long. A Rabbi should know better.

Oh, man. The ridiculous things that these theists believe, putting stock in millennia-old superstititions, accusing gay people of trying to "change" America. Hello, you gullible, credulous sheep -- life is all about CHANGE. Do you, Rabbi Shifren, want to live in the world of your forebears? Where people rarely lived past 55 years of age? Where women were chattel traded off from father to husband? Where the Jews themselves were reviled and forced to live apart from the rest of society? Or do you want to pick and choose which parts of human society you want to progress and which parts you don't? You don't get to pick. Sorry.

I'm so sick of these religious zealots.
