We’ve all heard the quip, “God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” Opponents of homosexuality premise that it is unnatural and immoral and should not be practiced, while proponents advocate for “equal rights.” The Human Rights Campaign (HRC,) one of the proponents, is having their annual fund raiser. Thought you might be interested in knowing just exactly what the HRC stands for, and who is supporting them.
According to an article by CNSNews.com (read full article here,)
“HRC advocates same-sex marriage, adoption by same-sex couples, and ending the military’s ban on homosexuals. The group has also accused Pope Benedict XVI of “hurting people in the name of Jesus” for stating that condoms are not the solution to the AIDS problem, while accusing the Catholic church of being “immoral and insulting to Jesus” for declining to serve communion to a openly lesbian couple.”
No Shrinking Violet, this group, in making their views and demands known. Homosexuals seem to tend toward boisterous confrontation, even belligerence, in their quest for “equal rights.”
They have adopted the equal rights banner, because no one wants to be against equal rights, just like no one wants to be called a racist. Anyone who opposes them gets tarred with the “homophobe” brush. This is unfair because as private citizens, they already have all the rights of any other citizen. They have the right to do as they please, so long as they are willing to accept the consequences of their actions.What they are really fighting for is acceptance, and that is something that cannot be demanded. There will always be those, who for one reason or another, religious or whatever, will find homosexuality immoral, unnatural, and repugnant. There will always be those who see homosexuality as a perversion (which anyone has to admit, it is in no way the natural design for the behavior of the human race. It is driven by lust, rather than the desire to procreate.) The government cannot wave a magic wand and make an act suddenly no longer objectionable. They cannot mandate acceptance.
However the homosexual advocates know that familiarity breeds acceptance. Just as sex and coarse language on TV has gradually become commonplace today, where it would have been shocking fifty years ago, so they hope that offensive, immoral behavior will eventually be received, giving their perversion the approbation they seek.
Now, regarding this annual fundraiser, I thought you might be interested in knowing which businesses are supporting them. The CNSN article leads off in the title of their piece with eight corporate sponsors, Marriott, Comcast, Giant, Hyatt, Food Lion, Macy’s, Chipotle, and Hershey’s, but a full list is given at the end of their article. I already don’t shop at Food Lion, and the others are not convenient, but giving up Hershey’s products will be tough. Thank God I was recently diagnosed with diabetes. (Just kidding! Don’t get your panties in a wad. I am diabetic, but I don’t thank God for it. Nor do I blame Him for it, or even imply that He gave it to me. I was just making a joke, so chill.) I’m not necessarily calling for a boycott. I respect HRC’s right to organize, protest, seek sponsorship, etc. and I recognize corporate businesses’ right to support whomever they choose, so long as they respect my right not to like it and not to do business with them. I will be writing to them to express my views, and urge you also to let them know your feelings about their support for a group you may find offensive to your morals and values. If businesses only hear one side, how will they ever know?
