Are gay activists declaring war on Christians, Mormons?
By Matt C. Abbott

It sure seems that way.

Like a bad sexually-transmitted disease, protests against California Proposition 8 are spreading rapidly to other states, including here in Illinois. Even more troubling are the activities of militant homosexual activists (or those who strongly support them), which border on terrorism.

According to Bill May of

    'I wanted to keep you up to date on developments on the backlash to the passage of California Proposition 8, which now involves national demonstrations.

    'Yesterday, Nov. 14, the Yes on 8 campaign responded with a press conference to denounce what has turned into domestic terrorism against people and institutions that supported the restoration of traditional marriage. We are calling on the No on Prop 8 leaders, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sen. Diane Feinstein, to denounce the campaign of intimidation that is becoming more pervasive. The strong reaction is largely due to our opponents' persistence that support for traditional marriage is motivated by discrimination, intolerance and hatred of homosexuals. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    'On Thursday, envelopes containing a white substance were received by the Knights of Columbus at their headquarters in New Haven, by the LDS Church headquarters in Salt Lake City, and a Mormon temple in Los Angeles. Countless others have been receiving threatening phone calls and threats to their businesses and livelihoods.

    'It is important to remember that these acts are not representative of many people who have adopted the homosexual lifestyle who are good and respectful citizens. Our response must continue to be one of charity and respect — 'they'll know we are Christians by our love,' as the popular hymn goes. Please continue to offer your prayers and suffering for people committing these acts, for the political leaders who are instigating them, and for the many people who are suffering as a result.'

Not surprisingly, one hears homosexual activists spout the usual mantra of "separation of church and state." Of course, the mantra is directed only at those who defend authentic marriage and the sanctity of human life; the pro-abortion, pro-sodomy "Christians" can talk about Jesus as much as they wish. Also, we really don't have separation of church and state; we have, as the late Father John A. Hardon, S.J., asserted, subordination of church to state.

A good essay detailing what's wrong with homosexual "marriage" can be found by clicking on this link.

For those who might be tempted to make the assertion that the tactics of militant homosexual activists — and their accomplices in the abortion industry — are somehow more peaceful than those of the right-to-life movement, I urge you to click on this link.

Finally, I reserve the right to print in this column any nasty and/or threatening e-mails, along with the offending individual's e-mail address, for all to see.
