The following is a letter I recently wrote to a good long time friend of mine who happens to be a strong liberal supporter of LGBT rights.
I have a question for you about the whole LGBT rights issue. I can understand why you have your position and, in fact, I am sympathetic to many of the goals which would protect them from not enjoying many of the same basic rights as others.
However, what I don't understand, is how good liberals like you, can stand by dumb and idle at many of the undemocratic tactics which a large percentage of the LGBT lobby and community are using to further their agenda. It seems obvious that many in the LGBT lobby make no real distinctions whatsoever between persons who disagree with their viewpoint. Anyone who disagrees, at least by a vocal group within the lobby, is immediately shouted down and dismissed and called a hater, bigot or homophobe. The effect of this is not merely to quash free speech and freedom of conscience, but has far-reaching implications beyond this. It is becoming clear that the agenda of many in the lobby is not merely to pass their anti-discrimination laws but to homogenize the culture into some kind of groupthink. And this is being carried out with coercive measures.
Here are some examples I have in mind from several recent events.
1) the Atlanta fire chief lost his job because somewhere in a book he had written he mentioned, among a list of other sins, that sex between members of the same gender was a sin. Did he single homosexuality to be the only sin? No. Other sins were included.
