As many of you already know Buzzfeed and the rest of the #SJW community are outraged that Chip and Joanna Gaines attend a church that supports the traditional definition marriage. How dare they possibly support such a hateful point of view! Even worse though is that their pastor says Homosexuality is a sin!
Well, my little leftist snowflakes let me allow you in on a few little secrets...
1) Forcing others to conform to your beliefs doesn't make you an Activist, it makes you a Tyrant!
This is a bright shining example of religious discrimination. The idea that the government or the media, in this case, should be allowed to actively persecute anyone because they simply do not like their religious convictions is the very reason my great grandfather escaped to this Amsterdam, Holland, and eventually here. Unlike your leftist diversity professors taught you in class, this country wasn't colonized for the purpose of genocide, slavery, or white supremacy in general. It was colonized by William Bradford and the rest of the pilgrims to promote religious freedom and an establish a God-honoring culture. This also is the reason our founding fathers gave us the first amendment, to protect everyone's rights, even when pop culture decides they no longer deem those rights popular or acceptable. By attempting to make the Gaines family a pariah, solely based on their religious beliefs is not only despicable but also counteractive towards the gay rights movement. This is because things like freedom, liberty, and rights are founded on the premise of people not agreeing. They are not founded in persecuting people you disagree with until they conform or their lives are ruined. So all you Social Justice Warriors out there running to your safe spaces and hating people who disagree with you. Just know you currently have more in common with Hitler, Stalin, and Kim Jong-il, than Washington, Adams, and Jefferson.
2) Eight Years Ago Obama's Racist Pastor Didn't Matter?
I know how quickly your memories fade due to the high levels of hypocrisy that pollute your minds but hear me out. When old Barry was just a young presidential candidate eight years ago, and the pastor of the church he had attended for twenty years was a well documented racist, what was it you said? Oh yeah, I believe it was something along the lines of, "It doesn't matter!" or "He wasn't the one who said it!" Then explain to me why in the hell, the non-racist views of a home improvement TV show host's pastor are newsworthy? (Yes, writing that last sentence was just as mind-numbing as it was to read it.) The only logical reason why there could possibly be outrage and contempt on the left about this is simply because they hate true diversity. Diversity isn't about skin color or gender it is about different beliefs and points of view, which they continually attack. How do you, on one hand, say that we shouldn't judge people based on skin color, gender, sexual orientation, etc. then in the other hand prescribe government mandated diversity based solely on those characteristics. The only thing more hypocritical than that, is your continual championing for tolerance, equality, and "fairness", while openly attacking anyone who has different views. This is why the democrats got slaughtered across the board in the last election and eventually this will be the downfall of your party if you continue with the hypocritical oppression of dissenting points of view.
Even Brandon Ambrosino an openly gay man who writes for the Washing Post had this to say, "BuzzFeed is probably at the forefront of discussions surrounding diversity in entertainment. But do their reporters think diversity refers only to skin color? Does ideological diversity count for nothing, especially when it is representative of, again, a sizable chunk of the American public? It’s hard to make the case that the website promotes this kind of diversity, particularly on same-sex marriage. In June, Ben Smith, the publication’s editor in chief, told Politico that “there are not two sides” on the issue." and he closes with this, "BuzzFeed can’t argue that the same-sex-marriage issue is ethically settled, because it isn’t for a sizable population of our country and our world. It is no longer okay — indeed, it never was — to write cutesy articles shaming religious people as homophobic for simply being one of the many millions of Americans in 2016 who attend a religious congregation that does not support same-sex marriage. That is not a good move for activism or journalism."
3) Newsflash! Homosexuality Will Always Be Biblically Wrong, But That Doesn't Mean Christians Hate Gays!
The argument, that in the United States the home of freedom and liberty, that everyone must agree is hogwash, as stated above. There is a much more insidious and harmful ideology being touted though and that is, disagreement equals hate. Which is the exact place, where hit piece articles like Buzzfeed's, originate from. The truth is a person's religious convictions and civil liberty views don't have to align and often do not. That being said, the bible is crystal clear that homosexuality is a sin, and so is alcoholism, gluttony, stealing, murder, prostitution, and many other things. If that bothers you too much to handle, then your problem isn't with a texas pastor, it is with the authors of the bible. The point is, if someone doesn't agree with your lifestyle choices it doesn't mean they hate you. In fact, it's more likely that they love you because indifference is the purest form of hate. The Church recognizes that we are all sinners in desperate need of a huge and mighty savior, but choosing to openly ignore the lifestyle that savior calls you to isn't an option either. A preacher not supporting homosexuality or gay marriage isn't about hate, it is about why they wouldn't give an alcoholic booze or a gambler a gift certificate to the casino, love. They are actually trying to do what think is best for that person.
The argument isn't about if homosexuality is morally ok or not, because that will differ from person to person. That narrative is being pushed to distract from the real issue, which is, is it right to force others to conform to someone else's ideology? The answer is No! and that is exactly why it doesn't matter if the Gaines or their pastor support homosexuality, because it's about rights. They have a right to believe what they want and so do you, and no one should ever have to fear retaliation for exercising that right!
