The arrogance of 'no, please, quit it, stop bashing my life!'

by Jeremy Hooper

The piece in question involved a Focus on the Family "ex-gay" staffer suggesting that God will not economically bless this nation until it fully shuns LGBT people. And despite the obviously hurtful insinuation pointed right at the heart of anyone who falls outside of heterosexual, anti-equality Christianity, all this writer did in response was highlight the quote and its implications, insert my tongue deeply in its usual cheeky resting place, and then take the piss out of what I (and many) perceive to be a completely absurd notion. I took the grenade and tossed it aside.

But of course when a fellow voice of faith-based inequality comes over to comment on said piece, the roles are recast in the usual "gays are agressive" fashion.

Although "arrogance in check" is an interesting choice of words. Because again, the piece where this comment appeared was all about God not funding a gay-friendly nation. If anyone knows about "arrogance in check" (or cash or charge or mutual fund), it would seem to be those who hinge the man upstairs' donation habits on how many boys kiss each other in a given fiscal year.
