Would any respectable news outlet allow an article with such a heading? One would hope not.
How about: “I feel for Jews, wish them all but well; but some should really try Christianity”? Don’t think so.
Then why are blog posts and opinion pieces OK that say: “I’m against Pride marches” or “Reparative therapy could be good for some Gays”?
How come “Muslims threaten Western culture” is offensive but “Gays threaten heterosexual norms/marriage” is not?
How is “Our religion teaches women to obey their husbands” beyond the pale but “Our religion doesn’t allow for homosexual pride” OK?
“Ban visual women from the public sphere” (or substitute “Jews”) would be seen as oppressive but “Why do homosexuals always need to stand out and flaunt their sexual preference” as not?
How is it possible that (thankfully) no one anymore tries to cure women from ‘genetic feebleness’ or left-handed people from ‘motor disability’ but questioning unchangeable sexual orientation is a free for all?
Can’t we see that the US is paying dearly for having unlimited speech on the Internet, resulting in an explosion of racism and antisemitism?
Why do I need to explain this at all? How, in a democracy, is it acceptable, in 2019, to regard some people less human than others?
I don’t care who else is misbehaving. I want my paper to lead the way.
No more politically incorrect pieces on LGBTQ! Not because of political correctness censorship. Rather, they are uncouth, dangerous for the mental health of many young and vulnerable people, and oppressive no less than a Nazi march. I plead for the second day in a row.
The newest twist is, the Times of Israel reports, that the minister-Orthodox rabbi who declared on Shabbat on TV that conversion therapy for Gays is an option he himself has suggested many times, now says that he never said or believed such a thing. It seems that he’s finally in training how to be a politician. Lying is strictly forbidden in Judaism but in an environment where lying is common practice, maybe it’s allowed?
In any case, he has now written: “I know conversion therapy is wrong and grave, an invasive treatment that is unsuitable for the human psyche, causes those treated more suffering than relief, and can even put peoples [sic] lives in peril and cause suicidal tendencies.”
May we assume and demand as proof of his newly advanced position, that he will now support the new bill proposed to outlaw “conversion therapy” and persuade his party’s parliamentarians to do the same?
May we also expect that the new party for the elections that want to stand up against LGBTQ being part of what’s normal, that this party won’t be registered, that the media will not disseminate its life-threatening filth.
Declaring homosexuals substandard is a form of racism. It means: “The way your brain is wired makes you inferior and unwanted. We’re not able to destroy you but we want all to know that you are the worst.”
