Gay rights groups in Oakland and elsewhere want to shut you up -- that is if you say anything that might reveal the truth about the nature of their lifestyle.
Today Americans are living in a new kind of fear -- not of terrorism or nuclear annihilation, but of liberal thumb-suckers who want to undermine the First Amendment. For those of you who refuse to take the time to actually read the First Amendment, here it is in all of its glory.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Currently in Congress a secret bill is being discussed that will enact penalties for people who dare to say anything that might offend someone else "so-called" -- Hate Speech. The Bill is secret because the mainscream liberal media won't cover it so that it can pass through Congress and get signed into law by the president without so much as a whimper from the people. Make sure to say good-bye to the First Amendment as the ink dries on the signature.
The whole inspiration for this article comes out of Oakland, that bastion of ethical and moral purity on the east side of San Francisco Bay. It seems that a group of women working for the Oakland city government requested equal time for their group, "Good News Employee Association" on the e-mail system and bulletin boards. The focus of the group is to provide a "forum for people of Faith to express their views on the contemporary issues of the day. With Respect for the Natural Family, Marriage, and Family Values." Their request came after other groups had been given the opportunity to utilize e-mail and bulletin boards to announce their organization's activities - including groups that support homosexual rights.
The city'ss response was a warm and compassionate, "not only no, but hell no." Their rationale was that the Good News group was "determined to promote harassment based on sexual orientation." The city further went on to say, "If the women posted any more flyers, or sent their message via email, they would be disciplined and perhaps terminated."
Of course the women of the group went to court over this and their case fell upon the docket of the fair and impartial Ninth Circuit Court in San Francisco. The bastards that comprise that court ruled against the group essentially saying they promote hate speech. How nice.
This purpose of this article is not to engage debate about homosexuality being a choice, it is to point out the level of stupidity to which liberals have sunk in order to promote their flawed and abhorrent agenda. Psychopathic judges sympathetic to the wacko liberal agenda are more dangerous to America than al-Qaeda.
The judges of the Ninth Circuit Court deserve to be impeached, removed from the bench, disbarred, charged and convicted of treason, taken out and shot. These three judges have sold out to the liberal agenda and by misusing their authority on the bench have begun chipping away at one of the most fundamental rights secured by the Constitution.
They effectively violated three aspects of the First Amendment when they sided with the city of Oakland - another outfit deserving of conviction for treason - telling these women they could not organize a gathering (right to assemble), could not advertise the gathering (right to free speech) and based all of this on the fact that they were a forum of people of faith (right to free worship).
There is no excuse for this kind of behavior from the City of Oakland or the Ninth Circuit Court. Both entities are operating as weak-minded and spineless protoplasm unwilling to abide by the words inscribed over the steps of the United States Supreme Court: "Equal Justice Under The Law".
Americans have the right to assemble peacefully, which these women were willing to do outside of work hours and away from their workplace out of respect for their co-workers. Americans have the right to worship God in anyway they see fit without fear of Congress stepping in and telling them otherwise, which these women were denied the right to do by their employer which happens to be a government agency. Americans have the right to announce their intention to organize to let group members and other interested parties know when and where, which these women were denied this right because the city of Oakland was afraid that someone would be offended that religious groups were being allowed to assemble.
Christian Americans know all too well the promises in the Bible, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD" and that the nation that will humble itself and pray to the LORD, God, will heal their land."
The liberal agenda doesn't like this kind of teaching because it violates their belief that they are in control of their own lives and they will stop at nothing until the whole country bows down to the altar of socialism.
Just an afterthought here: liberals want to make America a Socialist nation, so it stands to reason they would be "national socialists." Hmmm -- wasn't National Socialists the real name of the German Nazi Party?
