Tolerating intolerance

Christian Evangelicals are taking their intolerance of homosexuals (Editors’s Note: Lance Arthur is a professional homosexual) to the courts in order to make it legally acceptible not to accept others, starting with the gays.

In Georgia, a 22-year-old college student is suing her college, the Georgia Institute of Technology, to force it to revoke its policy of tolerance so that she’s free to be intolerant. And the Christian Legal Society is a national group of what we will assume to be backwards-looking narrow-minded judges and lawyers to challenge tolerance policies in federal court.

Why do they think it’s time now to strip away the rights and protections of homosexuals? It’s a kind of scapegoat tactic. They know they can’t attack racial or sexual tolerance policies because those are, you know, you can’t help it if you weren’t lucky enough to be born a white male. But you can, according to them, help it if you were born gay, because nobody is born gay. The gays simply choose to be vilified, hated, put down, denied employment and marriage and called any number of names and possibly suffer violence at the hands of righteous Christian martyrs. It’s our own fault for deciding to be gay.

Then they can finally be free to practice their form of religion, which apparently involves hating the differences of a human society without worrying about being labeled something bad. Because of course right now they’re being denied all sorts of human rights — like stupidity.
