Video: “Day Without a Gay” not going according to plan

posted at 12:38 pm on December 9, 2008 by Allahpundit

Via Breitbart, turns out the recession’s a Prop 8 supporter. The festivities begin tomorrow; the boss is already bracing for the biggest labor shockwave since, um, “Day Without an Illegal Immigrant.” Remember that? No?

First the Larry Craig appeal gets rejected, now this. Heart-ache. Exit question: Isn’t today “Day Without a Blogger Who Has Nothing to Post Day”? I’m pretty sure.

Are you intentionally misreading me, or do you need help?

Both.

You know where this goes. Why are you bothering.

Nah, you have to be there so the feminists can rail against the patriarchy. It’s not as fun for them to rail when you aren’t there.

Yeah, but I enjoyed the Two Towers more.

MadisonConservative on December 9, 2008 at 3:37 PM

Not me. After the first, they were all downhill, and the last one seemed a little too long. The first was incredible though.

yes you did. God is the judge, and He places people in hell..although really they do that to themselves.

right4life on December 9, 2008 at 3:37 PM

No, I didn’t. You don’t know what you’re talking about.

Esthier on December 9, 2008 at 3:43 PM

Are you intentionally misreading me, or do you need help? I’ve never said God tortures people.

And if you can’t find the multitude of passages referencing “gnashing of teeth” then my giving you a direct link to one won’t work either.

Esthier on December 9, 2008 at 3:41 PM

obviously you did. Who created hell? Who places people there?? God obviously. so according to you, God tortures people.

logic isn’t one of your strengths, obviously.

right4life on December 9, 2008 at 3:46 PM

Why are you bothering.

MadisonConservative on December 9, 2008 at 3:42 PM

Because the third one (presently absent) called me a whore repeatedly the other day.

I know it’s not rational.

Apparently that’s what you believe. It’s not what I believe, and it’s not what I said.

Esthier on December 9, 2008 at 3:47 PM

this is what you said:

No, you’re right. Good Christians are supposed to be glad when all the nonbelievers are tortured and eternally separated from God.

I never said I wasn’t looking forward, but for any who aren’t sadists, it’s bittersweet.

Esthier on December 9, 2008 at 3:24 PM

so according to you we’re not supposed to want the Return of Christ, because people will be TORTURED in hell…and obviously God created hell, and places people there, so God tortures people in hell.

Yep.

My guess is that r4l is not a fan of His Holiness.

Well, this has all gone from some funny but not (I think) malevolent jokes to where it shouldn’t have gone, though not without precedent. I’m off, but will leave you with this little bit of culture. (If you already know the routine, there’s a great one-liner in this one.)

*pats esthier on the back*

Just reading a few of those insults slung your way made me sad. To think – one can claim to be pope and degrade someone so mercilessly. I mean Biblically speaking gay is wrong. But we’re all born with sin. The choice comes in whether or not to follow/accept our sin.

And for the record, eternal separation from God would be torture.

Doppleganker on December 9, 2008 at 5:17 PM

Who created hell? Who places people there?? God obviously. so according to you, God tortures people.

right4life on December 9, 2008 at 3:46 PM

I could say the same for you, no offense.

God cannot be good and let evil go unpunished. If hell did not exist, what of justice? God is just, and if we throw justice out the door, nothing can bring us to happiness.

As for the article, I find it quite ridiculous what homosexuals are trying to do. Their sin is no less a sin if they demonstrate that we need them in the workplace. The people must not be equated with the action. They need the Lord more than we need their labor.

Honestly, you’re playing right into Olaf and right4life’s hands with this crap. You think I’m nuts, and you have no idea.

Besides, if you were really concerned about rights then this wouldn’t just be about gay marriage but allowing everyone to marry anyone.

being gay is not a crime. incest is, polygamy is. BIG difference.

kingsjester on December 9, 2008 at 6:10 PM

being gay is not a crime.

It used to be. And isn’t your position that it was wrong for it to have been a crime in the first place or do you believe the government has a right to decide what relationship are proper and aren’t?

incest is, polygamy is.

BIG difference.

So if you believe the government is in the right here, then you must believe that the government can make those distinctions, in which case, what’s there to complain about. The government has ruled here.

and what makes you different from those other cons exactly? you both vote the same way and use the same hate-filled book to try to make laws to discriminate.

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 6:06 PM

I’ve never voted against gay marriage and have never advocated creating laws based purely on the Bible.

But to you, we’re just all the same. That’s because you’re prejudiced and uneducated on people you don’t understand and don’t want to understand.

Had I said these comments about you, you’d actually have a reason to call me a bigot. I hope the hypocrisy isn’t lost on you.

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 6:06 PM

Only since 2003.
See this link.
Before that, the sodomy laws made it as criminal as incest or polygamy. Thus, your assertion of a “BIG difference” is, in fact, more of a legalistic nuance.

With all due respect (and I’m assuming you’re due some respect despite the lack of respect you show others), you’re the one who is misunderstanding a basic definition here.

A right is something granted to people from an authority higher than the government, i.e., something the government has decided it cannot take away.

He’s a pentecostal. They are an emotional sect. I’ve long suspected that the whole lot of them are manic-depressives.

I (like my namesake ancestor) converted to Orthodox Christianity. The Orthodox Church is the Church that Christ established and remains in it’s unadulterated form today.

Esthier,

Judging by your theology and dislike of fire brimstone theology, it’s something I would suggest that you should consider looking into more..
In some parts of your theology, you seem to be approaching the Orthodox position, but (like most of us in America) you probably haven’t had much access to Orthodox theology, and you take a very liberal approach without it.

Both liberalism and conservatism regarding Scripture, (with numerous private conflicting interpretations), are the wrong approach.

The Scripture was canonized and written by the Orthodox Church and has it’s place as a centerpiece within the full body of written and unwritten Holy Tradition (Scriptural Commentaries,Saint’s lives,writing of the Saints,Divine Liturgy,Iconography etc.)…without the correct interpretations of Holy Scripture, thousands of divisions are caused, churches lose their Apostolic succession, and thousands of denominations with drastically different theologies are formed.

The real “reformation” in Christianity today is the return of whole denominations and congregations of Protestant,Catholic and Roman Catholic Christians back to the Orthodox Church en masse.

SaintOlaf on December 9, 2008 at 6:54 PM

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 6:40 PM

Sorry. You may as well throw in the towel as far as I’m concerned. Marriage is not and never was an invention of the state. Marriage was ordained by almighty God many thousands of years before man ever invented representative government.

My collie says:

You can stamp your feet and pout all you want — that will change nothing. All of your bluster and furry is completely misdirected. Your problem is NOT with our government or the people that make up its constituencies. Your problem is not with me or any other commenter here. Your problem is with God.

The ONLY thing that you will accomplish (presuming that you get your way) is the END of marriage in the United States. Heteros (like myself) will simply move the whole issue outside the public sphere. We will no longer participate. How empty will your victory be when you finally have the word “marriage” in your grasp, and you find that 98% percent of the world’s population simply moves away, leaving you all alone, with your empty victory.

In a way, the whole scenario is somewhat reminiscent of the forced busing that was used to integrate the races in the cities in the 60′s and 70′s. The net result was a whole lot of poor minorities that were marooned in inner city slums. As result, society is more polarized along racial lines than ever before. Even that is a bad analogy though, since in this case, the issue has NOTHING to do with civil rights, and because gays are absolutely tiny in number compared to racial minorities.

So exactly what DO you hope to accomplish?

huh? we just elected a black president, in case you didn’t hear. try doing that in the 60′s and 70′s.

Even that is a bad analogy though, since in this case, the issue has NOTHING to do with civil rights, and because gays are absolutely tiny in number compared to racial minorities.

so if there were absolutely tiny numbers of blacks around, banning interracial marriage would be just fine w/ you? and btw we don’t know jow many gay people there are because many are scared to come out because of homophobia and religious bigotry. either way, size doesn’t matter. (I’m sure you’ve heard that before)

So exactly what DO you hope to accomplish?

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 7:11 PM

The super majority in America do not want gay marriage to be legal, and are very upset by the homosexuals and militant atheist liberals attempts to negate our repeated votes against gay marriage, by having their radical supreme court justices “find” gay marriage in the constitution!

The super majority oppose gay marriage because the super majority in America are Christian and understand that gay marriage if legalized, would give homosexuals a protected classs of citzenship with special rights..and any disparaging talk about homosexuality will be considered a hate crime.

What that means is Churches will be forced to marry homosexual couples in spite of their beliefs, and reading the parts about homosexuality from the Bible will be considered a hate crime.

It is simply a ploy to eliminate Christianity in America

The obfuscatory definition you cited was more accurately referring to the slang of the word rather than what we are actually discussing, which is legal rights of US citizens. Do you have a right to drive, for example? No. You have a privilege. Marriage is the same way.

Rights are flatly outlined in the Constitution. For you to hold gay marriage, or marriage in general, as a right, when actual rights address issues such as cruel and unusual punishment and searches of your home and seizures of property, is stunning.

And the fact is that I am in favor of gay marriage. However, your kind of ignorance about what is or is not guaranteed to you by being a citizen of this country is exactly the kind of thing that keeps me rethinking my position.

They will not eliminate us, but instead, drive us underground.

My collie says:

We will finally return to our 1st century roots. The persecution will serve us well, in that it will purge the church of the vast number of CINOs within our ranks. (Nothing drives away the sugar coated Christianettes like a little serious persecution.)

If and when it a happens, lookout world. For when we are weak, then we are strong. We will return in earnest to prayer, fasting, and memorization of God’s Word. It will all only serve to make us more effective in the spiritual warfare that is taking place everywhere on this doomed cosmic sphere that we call Earth.

right, cuz if anyone has it bad in this country, it’s white heterosexuals.

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 6:53 PM

Yes, and the homosexual community disrupting the flow of business in order to make a political point will really make things easier for you, won’t it?

Put away the tissues, cancel the pity party, and get off the cross, because we need the wood.

MadisonConservative on December 9, 2008 at 7:26 PM

we just elected a black president, in case you didn’t hear.

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 7:11 PM

He’s not black. He’s mulatto. The leftist loons are about to find out just how not-black that he really is. Just wait and see.

So (if these fellows were gay, which I have no idea about and which I doubt you do either)

Hermann Goering is famous for being a transvestite. That is very well known. Also sodomy was encouraged in the Hitler Youth camps as a way to toughen up the recruits (don’t ask me why).

Is in the same vein as “What if they gave a war and nobody came?”

kybowexar on December 9, 2008 at 12:40 PM

The second line of that poem is “Why then, the war would come to you!” The context of it flew completely over the heads of the Vietnam anti-war movement who liked to quote the first line only.

From the website; http://www.exgaywatch.com/wp/

The Vatican voices opposition to a UN resolution that would protect individuals facing imprisonment or the death penalty for being gay.

It is curious that the Catholic Church is against the death penalty, but takes this position.

So the voters in California outlawed gay marriage overwhelmingly. Then a few judges who see their job as not to interpret law but to equalize feigned social injustices overrule the will of the people. So a bunch of people run out and get married so they can feel normal and rub it in the breeders’ faces. Then the people vote again to outlaw it. Who has been disenfranchised here? The 2% of the population that is gay or the majority of the population who doesn’t think gay marriage has any place in a productive society?

Gays aren’t being kept from drinking at water fountains or told to move to the back of the bus. The police aren’t blasting them with water hoses. They aren’t forbidden from cohabitating or having unproductive sexual relations (except in public places but they sue for that right too). They are only prevented from marrying eachother. I hate to tell everyone this, but being gay is indeed different from being straight – from natural selection to Biblical law.

Doppleganker on December 9, 2008 at 8:23 PM

And dangit, I was going to take a half day tommorrow. I’m married with a kid and pregnant – will people think I’m half gay?

Doppleganker on December 9, 2008 at 8:24 PM

I haven’t read all the comments yet, I just listened to the report at top… let me get this strait (no pun intd), gays are supposed to call in sick, er, gay, and then boycott all businesses as well??? What the hell are they supposed to do all day while home being gay? Christmas is coming after all…

The Vatican is right to do this. You have to understand how the European Union (which pushed for this resolution) operates.

This symbolic resolution they’re pushing through the UN will not do anything to save homosexuals from being executed in Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen – its ostensible purpose. The real purpose of this resolution is to expand homosexual rights and decrease the hold of traditional Catholic morality in Europe.

For a similar example of this tactic last year the European Parliament passed a symbolic law condemning the Holocaust. The practical text of the law had the practical effect of introducing speech codes that limit freedom of expression. The EU of course claimed that opponents of this law were Holocaust deniers which was a lie.

If the EU, by way of the UN, wanted to show their disapproval for the execution of homosexuals in in Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen they could just an easily pass a symbolic resolution condemning Islam and sharia law. Maybe the Catholic Church would be willing to go along with that.

I thought this was an Onion piece at first.

“Calling in gay”?

Sheesh. Who died and made right4life the Pope?

Biblical law has no place in determining the laws of this free country. You know the Taliban like to rule from their book of fairy tales, the Koran. They even pick and choose what to follow, like you guys. You have more in common than you think….

It’s also curious they don’t clean up their house of pedohiles before trying to tell others how to run their societies.

Noneya on December 9, 2008 at 8:59 PM

right4life on December 9, 2008 at 8:54 PM

It’s so cute that all you can do to argue with people is call them stupid or fat or ugly. It reeks of projection.

MadisonConservative on December 9, 2008 at 9:00 PM

So again, you think it isn’t torture to be in hell forever separated from God? If you refuse to answer this again, then just know you’ll be wasting your time asking me any other questions.

Esthier on December 9, 2008 at 4:13 PM

I do not think those in hell are tortured by God, no.

Biblical law has no place in determining the laws of this free country.

In that case maybe California could hold a referendum instead. That way Californians could vote on what laws they wanted.

Forget your god- you are torturing all of us right now.
