WND Publisher Joseph Farah Just Wants Equal Rights For His People, The Hate-Gay-Marriageists
WorldNetDaily publisher Joseph Farah is taking a break from his critical work on behalf of birthers and believers in various conspiracies toexplain that laws preventing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation are actually Very Discriminatory Indeed -- not against a religion (fundamentalist Christianity), but against one of the very sexual orientations that such silly laws purport to protect! Because now, being against marriage equality is its very own sexual orientation.
Writing about a New York farm family that was fined for "politely declining" a same-sex couple's attempt to hire their barn as a wedding-reception venue, Farah explains how that works:
Let me pose a hypothetical intellectual challenge: The law that forms the basis for the action against the Giffords in New York is a provision that bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Yet, isn’t that precisely what is happening to the Giffords? Are they not being coerced to accept and approve someone else’s sexual orientation? Are they not permitted to hold their own sexual orientation, one that acknowledges their God’s definition that marriage is a union of one man and one woman? [bold added by RightWingWatch -- Dok Z]
The Giffords are not campaigning to prevent other people from following their own conscience as to their sexual choices and activities. It’s just the opposite. They are being coerced by the state to take part in the sexual choices and activities of others.
Isn’t that obvious?
We're not sure quite what to make of Mr. Farah's assertion that wedding receptions involve "sexual activities." Has he never actually attended a wedding reception, or have we been attending all the wrong ones?
Anyway, Farah makes a compelling case for the sexual orientation of not wanting other people to get married because of what you think God said. Is not wanting other people to get married because of what you think God said something people are born with, or is not wanting other people to get married because of what you think God said a choice? A number of people claim that they have "evolved" their opinion on their own not wanting other people to get married because of what you think God said-ality. Have these people truly changed, or is it an irreversible orientation proclivity? And if not wanting other people to get married because of what you think God said-uals win recognition for their rights and prove that gay marriage should be banned, then shouldn't the rest of us have the right to pass state constitutional amendments barring marriages between not wanting other people to get married because of what you think God said-uals? Won't someone think of the children?
Also, just for the hell of it, Farah decided that teh Gheyz are in league with teh Muslins:
Some people are trying to get the state to force those with different values, morals and religious idea to serve them in ways that violate their consciences.
I only see that kind of coercion demanded among two groups of people today – those who believe in the unlimited power of the state as their “god” and others who believe their god wants them to kill or subjugate all “infidels.”
Bad scary people everywhere, and Joseph Farah has to live in a world full of them. Is this even America anymore? And while we're at it, when will the Justice Department recognize Racists as a race?
