When Defending Marriage is Called Hate Speech: Shooting at the Family Research Council Comments

The shooting at the Family Research Center needs to be watched closely. Perhaps it was the act of a man with psychological problems. Perhaps, it reflects something more ominous.

    Intolerance is a sign that people will not listen to reason nor engage in open discourse. I'm beginning to consider that there may be a germ of truth in a fascinating comment from someone about all these issues. He said: Let all these Godless people abort their children if they want, use contraceptives to prevent pregnancies, gays to marry, and as long as God-fearing couples continue to bring children into the world, we will be rid of all the Godless people in 3 generations. Sounds reasonable.

    Anytime someone says something the left disagrees with, they call it hate speech. A year or so back, Actor Richard Dreyfus was speaking at a venue on the subject. He is a prime example of the real hated coming from the left. He said that disagreeing and criticizing Barack Obama's policies was hate speech. Wishing and calling for the death and killing of George W. Bush was freedom of speech, not hate speech.

    Creating fear which eventually is to "tag" is an order of the Biblical beast & not at all surprising to see that the Beast is "Gay" & hence unnatural in all its ways. This incidentally reflects the very "Theme" of 9/11 which is to playing on the nerves of people through intimidation & backseat controlling. Its acts coming under strange names like "Physiological" & "terrorism", all in all to the "Mark of the Beast" but simultaneously, unknown to itself is being prepared '"The Hell" which is to the eventual destiny of all things called "Gay" 'cause in it is "The Hatred" even to calling it as "Pride", irrespective of the amount of "Crocodile tears" emitted by its supporters & promoters, by their words. For it is said "it is not just unfruitful to the loss, but "Terrible" to be caught on the wrong side of God.
