    Gay-Bashing Republicans

    TechRepublic member DaveSlam says about the people who oppose Bush’s war against the People of Iraq, “It has nothing to do with 100,000 dead Iraqis (I beleive that’s the correct number?) You’re just pissed about his stance against gay marriage. haha
    [snip]
    I would hate to make any ASSumptions about your moral fortitude.
    —– —– —– —– —– —–

    It’s a real tragedy that the Bush Regime has given voice and to people who have such hateful attitudes towards their fellow Americans. But the deed is done.

    What do you think – is opposition to the War against the People of Iraq some sort of gay rights thing… or is it about basic human rights?

      Again you post things out of context to fit your bizaro twisted political mantra.

      I wasn’t gay bashing. I was Bucky bashing.

      “Hateful attitudes against their fellow Americans”… Have you even read any of your posts, here or on other sites???

      Take your meds.

        Your words speak for themselves. You were attempting to insult Bucky by saying he opposed the War against Iraq because of support for gay rights.

        It was irrational, hateful… and *very* Republican.

        Why do Republican ask dumb questions, and give dumb answers. Are they really that dumb?

        Yes, I’ve read my posts – often, before I even post them. Is there a point or were you just on another hate-based NeoCon rant.

        I’ve noticed that NeoCons, faced with your own unChristian and unAmerican hate-mongering often get irrationally defensive like that.

        You would be wise to adopt a position that allows for “rational” defense.

      You are way too sensitive.

      Dave Slam is one poster, not the Republican Party, Karl Rove or George W. Bush. There were hateful people before any of these people existed, and will be long after.

      And you make simplistic assumptions about opposition to the war. Just like there is never just one cause for a war, there is never just one reason for opposing it. Lots of people would like you to think otherwise, but its not so black and white.

      You know by highlighting what Dave Slam said, you give it a certain amount of legitimacy. Better to just ignore it.

          The party that has a former KKK leader in the senate
          The party that attacked a woman’s infant child with Downs Syndrome.
          The party that has attacked people simply for being gay, and made sniggering ‘wide stance’ jokes.
          The party that celebrated the death of Tony Snow, but grieves over the treatment of people who want to kill us.

          In other words, the Democrats.

      This was a childish statement yes…but to come to the conclusion that it was hateful is a stretch. He may be, however it is not clear from this brief statement. Being for the defense of a marriage between a man and a woman is not hate.

        Bucky that’s out of line. People can read each others posts just fine without you starting a discussion based on one heated line form one heated post. Taking quotes out of context and repeating them is the one thing Bush does that really gets under my skin, he’s like a broken record with it. Now you are doing the exact same thing in the same defensive manner, not too clever.

        I did think Dave Slam showed some homophobia and prejudice in his post for all to see quite clearly, without you reiterating it with a different and rash conclusion.

        Sometimes it’s best to let people have thier say and sink themselves, we don’t need cheerleaders pointing out the opponents fumbles, we are all watching the same game no matter which side of the field we sit on.

        sorry Max, I intended to post beneath the main thread but ended up responding to your post by mistake.

          The original post was intended as a slam against Bucky due to his incessant ranting on the other posting. It was also “quite clearly”, and unintentially, predjudicial. I do sincerely appologize to anyone (except Bucky) that I offended.

          You will learn in short time how unoffended I actually get by people’s comments. Yet I can offend others too easily it seems 🙂

          I am just getting tired of it all now, I am tired of hearing people whine, I am tired of hearing people say the same old crap, long after it is too late.

          Your post, well yes it was a heated rant, but there have been a few admittedly gay peers on here and I know you wouldn’t want to see them offended by this, however I am sure they are not.

          Your shots at Bucky are justified, yet he is just a tired old man with no direction in life and some real medical, psychological problems.

          Best to let him be for the most part I suppose, I know it’s hard but I am learning from some of the nutjobs here just how easy it is to get dragged into wasting hours of my time.

          No offense taken, maybe just be careful what slams you toss around, you never know who’s reading.

          It’s my fault. I know better than to take NeoCons at their word. It’s may have been best to wait for y’alls inevitable “What I meant to say” correction.

          But if I hadn’t promted you to apologize for the casual way you express hatred for so many millions of Americans – you probably never would have.

          It’s always important to point out the hateful flaws in NeoCon rationale – lest you think that sort of behaviour is acceptable to liberty-loving Democratic Americans. Elsewise, you have folks like Bush up there saying “I don’t think I made any mistakes”.

          The thread had reached the limit of its depth, and was not topical in the “Bush won” thread. It was totally appropriate to begin a new thread to take the discussion in this new direction.

          It is not one, isolated opinion. Gay-bashing is a primal, fundamental(ist) issue in the Republican Party’s hate-based agenda. It’s a value shared by millions of Bush’s followers.

          As far as gay bashing, it happens everywhere and by everyone, you can’t peg it as a Republican issue. The ONLY relationship is that most people who are agressively egocentric will favour a more agressive party, the passive the other side. I have been on both and still teeter between the two personalities myself.

          Sedcondly, you cannot possibly come here and tell me the how’s and why’s of Tech Republic. To tell me when it is appropriate or not to continue a discussion is as absurd as your focus. These dicussions are just off topic “water cooler”- (Edison 2003) chat, and there is no limit except the truncation restrictions of the threads, just post below.

          One thing that doesn’t work here is playing people against one another, your thread failed, one day you MAY learn why.

          Again and to paraphrase your own comments,”It is not one isolated opinion. Gay-bashiing is a primal, fundamental(ist) issue in the (HUMAN RACE’S) agenda. It’s a value shared by (MANY) millions of (HUMANS).

          That would be consistent with the “kill for Christ” attitude so many Militant Christians in the Bush Regime have.

          It’s a real tragedy that Bush’s followers have chosen to turn their backs on Jesus teachings of love and acceptance.

          Heck, he was a guy who was totally cool with hanging out with whores and tax collectors. He knew the secret to love – the carrot effective, while the stick is counter-productive.

          In reply to Act of Love?

          You?re absolutely right about Jesus being about love. You are the one talking about hate. Jesus did not accept sin but he did embrace the sinner. What you must understand is that God loved people so much that he sent his son to die on the cross for them. Jesus paid the price for our sin because God can?t look upon sin. Does that mean that we should continue in sin once we have accepted Jesus into our lives? God forbid. You automatically equate hatred and bigotry because a Christian will not accept sexual deviancy as normal behavior. This is not so. Jesus loves everyone and he wishes that no one would ?perish? which means ?go to hell?. In case you?re wondering Jesus spoke about hell quite a bit while he was here.

          I find it disturbing to know that so MANY Christians believe they are free to do so MUCH evil, and that they will be automagically forgiven.

          In Judaism, we are taught that we are responsible and accountable for our own sins. There’s no sacraficial goat that will wash our sins away.

      Even though our legislature’s first openly gay (openly being the key word)legislator is a Democrat, there are many Gay Republicans here.

      Some of them are quite ardent Bush supporters actually, which while on first glance might seem odd, most people weigh their choices for a candidate or party amoung many issues- not just hinging it on one (at least I hope most people don’t vote for a President on one issue!).

      I am not sure how these 2 issues got put together by DaveSlam (of course anyone with a pseudonym with Slam in it is probably just stirring the pot) but unfortunately most people do get a lot more worked up about what people do sexually than what they do with violence. You can see this in our movie & game rating system- Sex 21 and over- Violence- lets start introducing it at 13 unless the parents want to take them earlier…. It’s the American way.

      Of course the Actions (We are not at War there) in Iraq have nothing to do with Gay Rights. To think that one would be more upset at Gay Marriage sounds ludicrous at first glance, but unfortunately most Americans are more concerned about Gay Marraige than any Military Action in Iraq.

      WWJD?

      You have pointed out in other threads your belief that “Militant Christians” are responsible for this and yet Christ, when asked about his aspirations for political power stated that his kingdom was not of this world. Christ did not want to legislate morality.

      If being a Christian means that one is a follower of Christ, then Christians by definition are against what you are implying they are for. I also know that while Christians are spiritual, they are also human, so it is not their Christianity that leads them to legislating Morality, but actually their own (to put it in Christian terms) sinful nature that is controlling them and upsetting them.

      The Christian approach is the same as it has been since Christ healed the ear of the Soldier and welcomed the Roman Centurian. Do what you can to heal when you are given the opportunity. Healing those you find wounded on the road, even if they are despised by your culture as in the good Samaritan- that is the Christ-like way.

      It would be good of Bush to speak to this more publically if he wants to be remembered as having a Christian witness, and also it would be lucky for him that if he did, the media would support him in this. Instead, Bush will probably be remembered as a Christian primarily acting and speaking against Christian principles in practice. I do not believe this is entirely his fault as a person. I believe the media and the bloodlust of the people are really working together in driving this focus on violence and intolerance.

        I’ve been very specific about limiting my opposition to *MILITANT* Christians – not Christians in general. It’s foolish to equate the two – as it is to equate Israelis with Judaism or Islamists with Islam.

        Do NOT take my posts against MILITANT Christians as being against Christianity. I am simply standing shoulder-to-shoulder with my fellow Americans in opposition to those who would slaughter innocent people in the name of God.

          Thank you for remembering he was this. Sometimes I tire of people who read (or more likely have it read to them on Sunday, the day after the Sabbath) the translated word “teacher” over and over and still do not have an inkling that he was in fact a Rabbi working within Judaism to affect change.

          I get the feeling that you are angry in these threads at times. This may not be the case. I do hope that you find a way to cope with the current system and work within America to affect change. On a local level I find that quite possible and encouraging. The national politics, although needing many people to effect change, can also be influenced at the state level to some extent.

          The President can do little without Congress and I would venture that even more than the almost half of the voting population that voted against Bush have specific policies that they do not support.

          I will no longer think that when you say “Militant” Christian that you are referencing followers of Christ. In a better world I hope that this will be more self-evident.

      Militant Christians: An Oxymoron?

      by admin ·

      In reply to Gay-Bashing Republicans

      Nazi Party Rule #24 “The Party stands for positive Christianity.”

      I got to thinking about this thread. While the phrase: “Militant Christian” does seem to not be talking about Followers of Christ, it does unfortunately describe a very terrible twisted group of people who sadly do need identified, isolated and allowed to portrayed for what they really are.

      Just as the Nazi Parties “Positive Christianity” today is by almost all considered a horrifying association that has nothing to do with the teachings of Christ, I hope that someday “Militant” and Christian are never linked in reasonable discourse, except as a watchtower to never allow this to happen again.

        —– —– —– —– —–

        I started using this phrase a coupla years ago, in a thread someone started, claiming that the War against Terrorism is really a war against all of Islam.

        The guy was well-versed in the bible and pointed out that according to one of the Christian bibles (a.k.a. graven images) it says that someday all of the dead christians are gonna come back to life and kill the Muslims.

        At least, that’s how *he* interpreted it, but upon adopting that phrase in discussion I found that there’s a massive stockpile of Christo-Republicans who share that world-view – particularly in the Slave States. They overwhelinlgy support Bush, aggravated by him only in that he’s not militant enough.

      In reply to Gay-Bashing Republicans

      Let me be very clear. I (one conservative American) do NOT believe that one?s position on the war in Iraq has or should have anything to do with one?s position of homosexuality. I don?t even see how someone could logically come to that conclusion. That is as absurd as saying one?s opinion on the taste of grapes has a bearing on one?s opinion on the war. It doesn?t make sense.

        Not everyone is you 🙂

        BTW, if you were a gay American…your position on the “war” in Iraq may have everything to do with homosexuality, seeing as how the United States military exercises the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and makes it essentially a punishable offense to admit or state you are homosexual.

        Therefore, I can see how some gays might feel that anyone dying in Iraq (especially those who are gay and being forced to remain silent about their sexuality while their straight peers are not) may feel that the “war” in Iraq is stupid for anyone to die for the military when “freedom of speech” isn’t even afforded to those who wish to speak the truth about only themself.

        And yes…I still have trouble calling it a war. It’s more like a “police action” to me…not a war.
