Abortion, Contraception, and Social Security by madgater.wordpress.com

July 31, 2010

Post from madgater.wordpress.com:

“People are under the erroneous impression that they pay into the Social Security system for themselves, and liberals have done absolutely nothing to discourage this impression they have of Social Security.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The SS system is set up so that members of the workforce pay into the system for the people going into retirement ahead of them.  So we are paying for others’ retirement and others are paying for our own retirement under this system.  Aside from the affront to liberty regarding our own monetary affairs that this system represents, there is only one way that this system could work out mathematically: the government must value human life and dignity above all else and it must value marriage as the life-giving institution that it is.  If the government ceases to do this, which it has, you wind up with more people entering retirement than there are people in the workforce to support their SS checks.

31 US States have now Banned Gay Marriages

November 5, 2009

Today the people of Maine voted against gay marriages by a narrow 53 percent votes for the ban and 47 percent against the ban. So far 31 states have voted on the issue and all 31 have voted for a ban. Five states have allowed gay marriages, but not by a popular referendum.

As a comparison, last month, the Swedish Lutheran Church (the former Swedish state church which still has three quarters of the Swedish population as registered members) voted for allowing gay marriages. Some bishops protested but the majority of church leaders have decided that God does not think homosexuality is immoral. However, in the US, God thinks homosexuality is immoral. So, either there are different Gods with different opinions on the issue or the one and only God needs to employ a new head of PR. However, I won’t discuss whether homosexuality is immoral or not according to God, because I don’t believe in God, so God’s opinion on the matter is irrelevant to me.

People who are against homosexuality but don’t refer to God’s morals usually say that homosexuality is unnatural and therefore wrong; sex is between a man and a woman, the penis fits into the vagina like a hand in a glove (size, shape and odour may differ, which is true for hands and gloves as well). This is not a good argument, because humans do a lot of things not just meant to further their genes; like going to the movies, chewing gum, masturbating, hugging, listening to music et cetera. Having a penis in your mouth or in your ass is no more or less natural whether you’re a girl or a boy. It’s just a matter of recreation, what we do for fun or for pleasure. As long as it’s consensual – as long as nobody gets hurt, no activity is ever wrong. This goes for gay guys, lesbians, bisexuals, group-sex participants et cetera as well as for all activities that have nothing to do with sex.

Thousands of animal species are less homophobic than humans. Like chimpanzees. And don’t get me started on plant reproduction.

Also, it doesn’t matter why a person has its sexual preferences, whether it’s genetic or environment, because we all have different taste in wine, music, sex partners, television shows, seasons, wall papers et cetera. It’s just the way it is and there is no judge as to what is right or wrong when it comes to taste, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else. (Having a taste for genocide is probably a very bad thing…)

Lithuania is Gay, Solar Eclipses are Gay

July 23, 2009

Lithuanian President Grybauskaite has finally announced to the public that it is time, Lithuania is coming out of the closet, the public announcement has reached the ears of the world: Lithuania is gay.

Gay, of course, means happy.

In 2010, a new law makes it illegal to spread information about homosexuality and bisexuality. Information about same-sex sexuality will be considered dangerous to the youth of the nation, because homosexuality can be dangerous to mental health and can disrupt the physical, intellectual and moral development of the youth.

But, Grybauskaite now says that protecting the youth from information about dangerous sexual preferences is not as important as working against discrimination.

First of all, the only reason for this sudden change of heart is because everybody else knows this law is ridiculous; having a sexual appetite for someone else is not dangerous in itself.

Also, when people don’t understand why the logic is flawed, they can’t be expected to correct matters logically either. How can information about something perceived as dangerous be dangerous? Isn’t it the other way around? Shouldn’t anti-gay forces want to spread the word that being gay is an abomination and will lead to eternal torture in God’s oven downstairs?

No, this is all nonsense and it won’t stop being nonsense until Lithuania stops being homophobic.

Grybauskaite is gay.

While people are being ignorant in Europe, eastwards people are amazed that the sky is black. Apparently, nobody has ever been awake during the night before. Although admittedly, it does look pretty cool/gay.

Russian Gay Pride Parade for the Eurovision Song Contest

May 16, 2009

So, today, Moscow wouldn’t allow demonstrations for gay rights. That’s not very modern, is it?

In 1716, Tsar Peter the Great enacted a ban on male homosexuality in the armed forces. The prohibition on sodomy was part of a larger reform movement designed to modernize Russia and efforts to extend a similar ban to the civilian population were rejected until 1835.[1] Furthermore it is unclear how serious this initial ban was, given that Peter the Great himself was known to have had male lovers.[2]

– wikipedia

They’re not allowing freedom of sexuality, love, friendship et cetera.

The occasion for the demonstration is the Eurovision Song Contest, which is about nationalism and xenophobia, but in a civilized way, just like sports.

“I am so proud to be Russian when I hear that one more sodomite march was prohibited in my country. I sometimes wonder if there are countries in Europe where Christian values are protected enough to ward off sodomites.

Sodomy is a sin. The Bible says so very clearly.”

– youtube user

It’s of course not just Christians who have this opinion and of course not all Christians think this way. People have this view for a long list of personal reasons. Is there really a difference between members of “the gay resistance” in different countries? Are Russia, EU, US, China, Brazil, Kenya, Nigeria et cetera really that different?
