Keep throwing feces at each other, gays -- Focus on the Family has yet to give us 'normalcy' pass

by Jeremy Hooper

You can look at the flawed claims, discriminatory notions, and unwarranted religious overreaches in the story itself. But sometimes when looking for cruel slights in a Focus on the Family's Citizenlink "news" site, one need go no further than the headline:

Homosexuality "normalized"? Can you even believe that people are still saying this in the year 2010? We have LGBT people in places of high office, high art, high education, high court, high power. We LGBT people have kids and families and lives and loves. We are here, there, and everywhere, including within the ranks of the United States Armed Forces. And yet we still have to suffer the indignity of evangelical Christians telling us that our "normalcy" hangs in the balance of public policy decision-making?! It's pretty shocking that they get such a pass, actually.

I mean on one hand, whatever -- what is "normal" anyway? And why should rhetoric take away from what we (and science) know to be reality?

But on the other hand: HOW F***ING DARE THEY?!?! Moreover: How dare they be so cruel to their neighbor and simultaneously profess to have the nice, loving, moral high ground? That is rhetorically abnormal, if not spiritually!
