Gay Pastry Chef Takes on Gay Bullies. . . Calls Them 'Nazis'
No one can accuse me of being anti-gay. IMO, they tend to be the most creative and capable of generating things of great and lasting beauty. It's heartening to see this gay baker come out in defense of the Christians who have been vilified and fined for not wanting to bake a cake - with whatever trimmings - for a homosexual wedding. It is the eternal shame of the "progressive" movement to play into the lowest common denominator of human progress and have the nerve to call them rights.
Our politicians, lawyers and academics have made a big mistake by defining diversity as race, creed, gender and sexual urge. That is truly an isolationist and divisively limiting definition. "Black lives matter", KKK, La Raza and "Gay Pride" are examples of this great distortion. The Bible states "We are fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14. We need to act like it as individuals, communities and as a nation.
True diversity is the broad - even infinite range of gifts and talents found in any population. If this were not so, why have we as a nation been capable of exploring, discovering, refining, inventing and applying the resources of the earth and the human mind and spirit? For the USA, these have prospered because our Founders built Opportunity into the mix. This explains why people risk their lives to come here.
These too are personal and individual offsets to temptations to be less than our wonderful construction. The mob is always there to urge us to fall into the pit of depravity - usually of a sexual nature that is surely not limited to homosexual temptation. I always told my kids that if we can imagine anything a human would be capable of doing, rest assured someone is doing it. Anything will do in the devil's panoply of temptation to divert us from our better selves. We will win this battle.
