Is There a “Gay” Mafia?

As much as I abhor the rhetoric of liberal talk show host Bill Maher, he came out with a prescient comment the other day, asking if there is a “gay mafia”? Whether he meant it as a biting comment or not, but just by observing the militant gay community in action, you could justifiably equate them with a form of the actions of the notorious Italian mafia.

Tolerance, which the gay community has been incessantly asking for, for years, has become very intolerant of anybody who doesn’t agree with their gay oriented agenda. Just recently, Mozilla CEO, Brendan Eich, was “forced” to resign because he donated to a group supporting Proposition 8 in California in 2008, which was campaigning against same sex marriage. The voters in liberal California passed the anti-gay marriage proposition by a 53% majority . In fact, at that time, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, both candidates for president, were against gay marriage (they both have flip-flopped on the issue since, mainly for political purposes), so Brendan Eich was in the mainstream of thought on the subject of gay marriage. Ironically, some judge a few years later overturned the will of the people and declared the duly passed proposition unconstitutional. Eich gave a total of $1,000 to the supporters of an anti-gay marriage organization, and for that, he was asked (forced) to resign from the company six years later. Did he do anything wrong in exercising his 1st Amendment right of free speech? Is this America, or the former Soviet Union? Sometimes you have to wonder.

God forbid, you make any comment which doesn’t jibe with the policies of the gay community, you might just get “whacked” (not physically, but verbally vilified by the media and other “politically correct” loons who champion the gay agenda), and be branded a bigot, a homophobe or worse.

Boycotts (remember the Chick fil-A controversy a couple of years ago?), demands for firings and resignations, and sometimes even violent or disruptive protests, not directed at gays, but directed against others who disagree with their gay policies, seem to be normal practice today by these militant gays.

Tammy Bruce, an openly gay conservative talk show host, calls this “induced” resignation a result of the “gay Gestapo”, and she is disgusted by their actions. It’s like you must toe the line or feel the wrath of these “intolerant” gays whenever a person strays off that line.

When does this intolerance for diverse opinion end, and when will the really tolerant gay community come into play to counter this outrage, and tell their gay friends to practice what they preach? Is there a double-standard in the media, academia, and in the halls of Congress, when it comes to opinion that goes against the prevailing “politically correct” orthodoxy of diversity, inclusion, and fairness? As some have said, if liberals (a/k/a Progressives, including gay activists) didn’t have double-standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all. It looks like the “gay mafia” is alive and well in the good ole U.S.A.

Dear Abby,
I don't know what to do. Should I marry the boy I love, or should I marry the boy who loves me?
Dear Bruce,
Your problem is bigger than you think!

Wasn't it decreed that a marriage be between Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve?
