Why am I not surprised to learn that the krazy kristian kooks are now blaming gay people for the financial crisis affecting America. Never mind that their usual rant is that Gay’s don’t need job protections because we have all the disposable income. We used it, I guess, to wreck havoc in the world financial markets.
In a September 25th blog post titled ‘The Nation Will Right Itself If It Fixes Sex’, Christian Civil League of Maine Executive Director Michael Heath writes that the financial crisis currently facing Wall Street is the result of America’s sexual culture, including the acceptance of gay unions.
“Our crisis is a symptom, not the cause,” writes Heath. “I am not saying I know whether this financial crisis is God’s judgment or not. It is not for me to know that definitively.”
Heath lists policy changes that would make God “crack a smile,” including: End abortion rights and defund non-profit groups supporting it, amend state constitutions to ban gay marriage and eliminate domestic partnerships and civil unions for gay and lesbian couples, and end discrimination against private religious schools and homeschools.
And just so you can’t say that it’s just one kkk, we have others. Center for Immigration Studies Executive Director Mark Krikorian at the National Review’s website suggests Washington Mutual failed because it was too accommodating to minorities, including gays, African-Americans and Hispanics.
In a post titled ‘Cause and Effect?’, Krikorian writes, “I really thought this was a joke, but it’s not. WaMu’s final press release, before it sank beneath the waves.” The press release lists the general accomplishments of WaMu in diversifying its workforce, including earning a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. The release adds, “Diversity is an integral part of cultivating a welcoming, innovative and dynamic workplace here at WaMu. We are proud to be recognized for the opportunities and benefits we offer to all our employees, including the specific efforts we have made to engage Hispanics and the GLBT [gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender] community.”
The krazy kristian kooks dispute the Kinsey study findings that approximately 10% of the population is gay, yet they still assign to us enough power to bring down the entire world economy, and exercise complete control over the U.S. Government. WOW! Who knew I had that much power. Now maybe you’ll all start being a little nicer to your gay friends.
I try to make lite of this, and just laugh at these people, but the unmitigated hate they spew is really frightening…and to do it under the color of Christianity. Surely God weeps.
