Basically if we show up, Mychal Massie goes home; bye.

by Jeremy Hooper

When sexual orientation stopped being a reason for kicking a soldier out of the armed forces, conservative columnist Mychal Massie stopped supporting our military:

Obviously, we cannot form another military, but we don’t have to volunteer, nor do we have to re-up when our tours of service are over. I believe the military would get the message very quickly that our Armed Forces are not intended to become a homosexual Club Med if they were to find that enlistment and re-enlistment numbers were sharply declining in protest of allowing and encouraging openly perverse behavior. [WND]

When a sports team began holding a gay community night (approaching its eleventh successful year), Massie stopped attending games:

When the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team began having special nights glorifying homosexuality, my son and I stopped going. To be fair, we weren’t Phillies fans; we like baseball and frequently attended their games for that reason. But there was no way under the sun I was going to spend my money in support of a team that openly supported that which I opposed based on my theological and personal values. [WND]

When public schools began to understand that LGBT taxpayers are part of the community and began teaching diversity, tolerance, and nondiscrimination as good things, Massie sought out education that would echo his own beliefs:

I refused to send our child to public schools. He was educated in private Christian schools. He not only received a better education, but his teachers reinforced the values we taught at home. [WND]

When an American institution determined that gay boys should be allowed to tie knots and earn merit badges without fear that their inner feelings will lead to an outward booting, Massie deems the organization unsupportable:

The same thing applies to the Boy Scouts. Let the homosexuals have the Boy Scouts. Parents who want a Boy Scouts-type organization should be willing to start their own nonprofit, private organizations to guide boys. They should set strict rules of what is acceptable. [WND]

Hopefully for his sake, no one will tell Mr. Massie that we gay folk actually breathe the same oxygen that he does. He might have a tougher time finding a replacement for that one.
