Sometime back, Marty wrote a post entitled "Rise of the Planet Gay?" and in it Marty considered the intolerance of certain dimensions of the gay community as the Western world heads towards predictable persecution of those who don't accept their ideology and who maintain a faithfulness to a realistic ethical sexual view.
This week Marty presents to you a real concrete example of such harassment, persecution and hatred from a Homosocialist Network in the USA, towards those who won't accept, profess, and kneel to their Doctrine and Lifestyle.
Have a read of how this couple's business has been ruined by the hatred of certain Militant Homosexualists who couldn't accept that there are people in the world who have a different position than them and who won't go along with their life-style.
Make no mistake. This is a hate crime. They hate people who won't accept their Doctrine and Practice and who won't participate in their Celebrations. They hate people who stand with God, and who stand with Christ and who won't endorse their behaviour.
This is no longer about tolerance, but about FULL APPROVAL by ALL of their thing. And in forcing all to approve of their behaviour, they become the very tyrants that they falsely accuse us of being.
From Todd Starnes at FoxNews:
A family-owned Christian bakery, under investigation for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, has been forced to close its doors after a vicious boycott by militant homosexual activists.
Sweet Cakes By Melissa posted a message on its Facebook page alerting customers that their Gresham, Ore. retail store would be shut down after months of harassment from pro-gay marriage forces.
“Better is a poor man who walks in integrity than a rich man who is crooked in his ways,” read a posting from Proverbs on the bakery’s Facebook page.
“The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”
– Aaron Klein, owner, Sweet Cakes By Melissa
“It’s a sad day for Christian business owners and it’s a sad day for the First Amendment,” owner Aaron Klein told me. “The LGBT attacks are the reason we are shutting down the shop. They have killed our business through mob tactics.”
The Washington Times has also weighed in giving more details of the hatred inflicted upon these poor people.
An Oregon baker with Christian beliefs who was forced to shut down operations after refusing to make a cake for a planned same-sex wedding says her faith in God has not wavered — and in fact, has grown stronger because of the ordeal.
Aaron and Melissa Klein, who claim a Christian faith, operated the Gresham, Ore., shop, Sweet Cakes by Melissa. In May, because of their religious beliefs, the Kleins turned down a request from a lesbian couple, Rachel Cryer and Laurel Bowmann, to bake a cake for their upcoming wedding.
The lesbians, in turn, filed a complaint with the state, touching off a massive gay activist outcry that ultimately led the couple to shut their business doors — the business they had spent years building — and move operations this past weekend to their home.
They're still not sure how a home baking business will work, Mrs. Klein said, in The Blaze. But they said they had little recourse but to try. The couple has five children, who are now being home-schooled.
The outcry from the gay community over their refusal to bake the lesbians' cake hit hard at their vendor business. Many cut ties and left them in limbo. The business had already suffered a tight winter; Mrs. Klein said the negative reaction from the lesbian cake ordeal likely pushed their revenue situation into the category of dire.
"We coasted it through the summer to see how it would be," Mrs. Klein said. "We had quite a few wedding cakes that we had booked, and people cancelled. The referrals that we would get, none of those came in."
Meanwhile, Mrs. Klein had a message for those facing challenges in life: Don't give up on God.
She said, in The Blaze: "It is so worth it just to sit back and watch how God provides for you. I struggled in the past with trust and even with my faith in Him and through this my faith has grown, my trust has grown tremendously. Yeah, I have lost something I worked really hard for and lots of years put into, but I know that really doesn't matter. My eternal home is what matters. I'm going to bring all that with me. … I'm happy and OK and I'm being provided for."
The lesbian couple hasn't dropped their complaint, and if the State Bureau of Labor and Industries rules in their favor, the Kleins could end up paying a civil penalty of $1,000 per violation — and up to $50,000 for emotional damage, The Blaze said.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Klein said a movement has already popped up to stop the family from operating the bakery at their home. A Facebook page called "Boycott Sweet Cakes by Melissa" has generated more than 500 "likes."
Mrs. Klein said of the social media campaign that's now being waged: "They're already planning to harass me. They're just continuously doing this. They just don't want me to be in business at all."
The Kleins have been subjected to vicious messages these past weeks — and the hateful emails keep pouring in, she said, to The Blaze.
A sampling: "People like you will burn in HELL, you racist pigs."
And another: "Your homophobic rants will not be forgotten and you will go out of business. This is the 21st century [expletive]."
And a third: "Do everyone a favor and fall off a cliff."
And one more: "Maybe your [G]od will send you some cat food to eat when you are living on the street?"
The Gay Dogma, created by Militant Homosexualists (not all gay people, obviously), is now something which the 'Enlightened Western World' and 'Its Pro-Gay Leaders', is expecting and pushing everybody to imbibe and swallow, including traditional Africa, especially Kenya.
Russia has recently outlawed the promotion of homosexual propaganda (not homosexuality itself, just its free promotion as 'normal' in the public square) and has been denounced by the War-Dictator Obama and many others. Thankfully several human rights groups have rushed to Russia's defence.
Soon, we will all be forced to convert to this Homosocialist Doctrine or be attacked and destroyed by these people. Ridicule, denouncement, underhand tactics, threats, blackmail, persecution, and prosecution, will follow if we don't. It is becoming increasingly clear that none are allowed to dissent pubicly and express their disagreement openly from this indoctrination. It is becoming tyrannical.
In the East, based on fundamentalist irrationality, Militant Islamists often bully people into submission to their belief. In the West, based on fundamenalist relativism, it now seems to be the Militant Homosexualists who are threatening people into submission to their Doctrine.
In the past, people often freely and willingly took their religious profession from their King, such was the attitude towards community and monarchy.
After the Enlightenment, things often went sour in terms of state authority and religion (especially around the time of the Reformation); and in the 20th century it got one hundred times worse, with certain horrible atheistic ideologies arising (Communism, National Socialism), which meant that people had to bow to a state mandated doctrine and existence, enforced by ruthless Dictators and their henchmen, who caused everybody to suffer immensely, as they ignored basic human rights and religious freedoms.
Today, in the West, built on Relativism and Enlightenment thinking, the main Dictator of public moral doctrine and life-style, from which none are allowed to dissent without dire consequences, is the 'democratically run' Media, influenced heavily by certain groups (especially the Militant Homosexualists) which have cleverly understood how to use it to their advantage in order to slowly brainwash the masses, under the catch-cries of liberty, open-mindedness, evolution, and self-determination.
On this point, just consider how Holywood and American TV has deliberately pushed the Gay Dogma with many and varied shows which have normalised it and made it 'cool'.
Through this subtle brainwashing, people in the West have now adopted another form of totalitarian belief, which is underpinned by unstable arbitrary relativistic whims, but which is something that all seem to think is enlightened and inspired and 'tolerant' because it comes 'from the people', aka, 'the mob'. It is very far from being tolerant.
The Media, through all its forms, now influences what people think to such a degree that most people allow it to govern their ethical compass, especially when it comes to sexuality and life-issues.
And it seems that in some parts of the USA, if citizens don't submit to this new 'Enlightened Way', then some Militant Homosexualists will punish people personally, as shown by the stories listed above.
And most of the post-moderns who allow the Media to manipulate their psychology and world view, just sit back, and say, "Oh well, served the homophobs right. They should have abandoned their medieval thinking and just accepted the 'Enlightened Doctrine'."
The new orthodoxy and orthopraxis is now what the Media dictate to people as politically correct, 'tolerant', and open-minded, through a subtle form of digital osmosis and streaming consciousness, which is leading new generations of young people into the abyss of despair and political oppression.
It's no longer just a matter of letting gay people have their quiet life-style, but now all must accept their doctrine, profess it, and honour its 'goodness', as we kneel at that altar and worship that hedonistic 'god'.
If you stand out publicly against it on conscience grounds, or religious grounds, they will treat you like the Nazis treated the Jews; except the difference is, they will employ that very paradigm against you, and call you a prejudiced 'Nazi' for not complying with their 'Enlightened Doctrine', simultaneously as they use Nazi tactics to make you submit to their Homosocialism.
For them, they see it as comeuppance. The glove is on their hand now and they will make you submit to their 'superior morality'. If you don't, they will run you out of town, and soon they will have you imprisoned for being 'homophobic'.
Ironic really: It's becoming illegal to call homosexuality a disorder in certain places, and soon, so-called 'homophobia' (people who won't accept their homosexual behaviour as 'normal') will be the new disorder that dissenters will be forcibly 'treated for' by the State.
It'll start with ridicule and pressure, then soon it'll become State enforced Doctrine than none can contradict openly or publicly. Then it's 'Game On' for the persecution of faithful Christians who won't submit to their tyranny.
Fr Z had some interesting comments:
They won’t stop until the age of consent is eliminated.
Even then they won’t stop.
They won’t stop until the Valar step aside and the One destroys Númenor.
As a Tolkien enthusiast, Marty honours Fr Z's metaphor.
We are called to stand against this totalitarian brainwashing. Civilization is at stake. Our salvation and theirs is at stake.
Just recently, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of the Springfield Diocese (USA) has declared that a Catholic woman, Mary Stachowicz, is a 'Martyr for her faith', when she tried to evangelize a troubled homosexual co-worker who was living an highly active multi-partner sexual life-style. This young man subsequently broke into her house and brutally murdered her for trying to share Christ with him.
Many people, upon reading such an account, will think that Mary has done the wrong thing; that she should have kept her mouth shut, she shouldn't have shard her views; in fact, she was the one who was wrong to share her views, and that she is the narrow-minded bigot who got the consequences of her actions…
National Homosocialism is on its way; and its Gestapo are forming up. A few more years and we'll be invading Poland…
Marty the Rethul
More persecution just come to hand…
A further confirmation of the homosexual mafia in action, "Airman won’t support same-sex marriage, punished by commandrix" from Fr Z
"Updating our earlier report on Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk, a Christian serving in the Air Force whose unit is now commanded by a lesbian: according to Monk’s complaint filed with his superiors, he was relieved of duty for refusing his commander’s order to say he supports gay marriage. Now the Air Force has taken the first steps to criminally investigate Monk for talking to the media about his situation. Despite the fact that earlier this year the Obama-Hagel Pentagon said they would never court-martial a service member for their Christian faith, they have taken the first steps to possibly court-martial Monk.
On Monk’s situation, Gen. Boykin says: We now see what is happening to Christians under President Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. This appears to be an intimidation tactic to send a message to other Christians in the military that you better not speak up when we violate your religious liberty. A statement to the media is not an official statement, so it’s absurd to consider charging him with this crime. The Obama-Hagel military leadership is not officially court-martialing Christians for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ, but you will be punished and might even face a court martial if you stand by the principles of your Christian faith when you are serving in uniform. A court martial is a criminal prosecution in the military. Depending on the crime, punishments can range from reduction in rank and withholding pay to dishonorable discharge from the military or even imprisonment. Boykin said FRC and the coalition is collecting signatures for a petition to the secretary of the Air Force, calling upon him not to punish Sergeant Monk for refusing to compromise his Christian beliefs."
