I was wondering just how long it would take for the ‘righteous’ among us to speak out on their favorite obsession, homosexuality. Bingo! The first letter to the editor of the Toledo Blade appeared today by a most-righteous [c]hristian* woman denouncing homosexuality and preaching the ‘word of god/God’ to us in the process. Interestingly, as I read it, I thought for sure that I knew who wrote it but, to my surprise, it was a different woman. Perhaps they are all molded from the same pattern and wired with the same robotic thought-patterns, like the pull-the-string toys kids play with.
Things should heat up here in the Toledo area later in the summer because there will be a gay pride event in the city in late August, if my memory serves me well. The local newspaper will light up like a firecracker with all of the other righteous [c]hristian homophobes self-pulling their talking strings.
What did today’s letter-writer say? The usual- that she knows what’s best for other people because the Bible says… Yes, she has the mold into which every woman and man must fit and, if they don’t then they’re going to Hell unless they repent of their ‘immoral behavior.’
Busy-bodies mostly, the über-righteous among us, the ones who ‘know’ the mind of god/God and are called to point out the ‘sins’ of others and to shame them into fitting into the mold. Not only that, but advocates for legislation that would exclude homosexuals from many of the same rights and freedoms guaranteed to all citizens of this nation.
This letter writer and her many clones wish that this nation would cast off its democracy and cloak itself in a theocracy in which the Law of Moses reigns supreme.
If only they could pool their resources and purchase an island in the Pacific and establish their theocracy there. I’m taking donations.
note: one of the most pernicious and outspoken local homophobes wrote this letter to the editor of the Toledo Blade a few years ago; surely, she will want to contribute her vitreol to the community on this current issue.
*[c]hristian = CINO, Christian in Name Only; an Old Testament believer who has assumed the title, ‘Christian,’ in order to retain anonymity while working to replace the laws of this nation with the Law of Moses.
