“You ‘vill bake cakes!!”
It’s an argument that we hear used all too-commonly from today’s leftists; If you’re not a fan of public, flagrant sexual conduct, or if you personally disapprove of a given sexual lifestyle, you must be a bigot. Homophobe even. And of course the only reason one would be a bigot, is clearly due to one’s secret attraction to members of the same sex. Flawless logic, is it not? It’s one of those arguments that’s used so often that we’ve become desensitized to it. That’s by design.
Of course the Indiana controversy is nothing new. Being forced to bake a gay wedding cake, or photograph a gay wedding is merely the next step from Canadian Pastors who’ve been found guilty of hate speech, to English B&B owners who were forced to close down simply for standing on their Christian principles. Religious liberties have been slowly disappearing for a while now. But the issue is never discussed on an honest playing field because of the cultural war that’s been waged first.
See for years, even if Christians are right, even if religious freedoms are being infringed, even if no hate is involved… anyone who is not a staunch, pro-gay-everything leftist has been labeled a “homophobe.”
Don’t support gay marriage on a personal level? Homophobe.
Don’t want to be forced by the government to bake a gay wedding cake? Homophobe.
Don’t want to watch the gay pride parade where people literally have public sex on in the streets? Homophobe.
Don’t want someone else teaching your five year old about sexuality between his kindergarten milk-break and nap-time? Homophobe.
Don’t want Kevin Jennings to teach your kids about “fisting”? Homophobe.
And what do “homophobes” all have in common? Why they’re all secretly gay, don’t you know! Yes, If you criticize somebody who happens to be a homosexual, you are doing so only because you yourself, are indeed a homo. There’s no way around it. To many liberals, simply holding an opinion contrary to theirs is the equivalent to coming out of the closet. Or at the very least, they’ll imply it.
Gay “progressives” touting these arguments are what reasonable members of the gay community refer to as the “Gaystapo”. Much like using the “racism” card when dealing with Barack Obama dissidents, the whole “you’re a secret-gay” argument is a way of ending the discussion before it even begins. Afterall, what kind of self-respecting, straight male would want to be accused of being a closet scientologist?
Liberals, the truth is that most of us don’t really care if you think we’re gay. It’s not that big of an insult. As a matter of fact, it’s more insulting to your own argument, seeing as you’re threatening people with falsely “outing” them of a practice that you claim to support in the first place.
For people who claim to be so tolerant of all sexualities, Liberals sure are quick to weaponize it.
Sure there are some people who genuinely hate anyone who speaks with a lisp. We call those people “jackasses.” But it’s important to remember that just because somebody is Conservative, just because they believe in religious freedom… it doesn’t mean that they have a Barney Frank, gay sex basement. And for liberals to imply it so consistently is exactly what’s wrong with politics.
Plus, it’s kinda gay.
