Interestingly, the White House lights itself up in gay pride colors Friday night, but President Barack Obama would never bathe the White House in the light of the Holy Trinity, a symbol of Christianity. Obama also didn’t light up the people’s house in black to honor the nine unarmed black parishioners assassinated by a racist man in God’s house of worship in Charleston, South Carolina.
Just as the Confederate flag doesn’t represent all of America, neither does the gay flag. States like Washington shouldn’t fly the gay flag over its capitol any more than South Carolina should fly the Confederate flag over its statehouse.

I find news organizations like Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post changing their avatars on twitter to rainbows, in obvious support of the Supreme Court’s ruling that gays have a constitutional right to marry, offensive. These news outlets, among others, don’t even fake objectivity anymore. Facebook also is pushing this gay agenda, offering users a rainbow filter to add to their profile pictures.
Another egregious display of political bias is government entities like the DC Public Schools and School Chancellor Kaya Henderson changed their avatars to the gay pride rainbow. This is the same DC public school system that teaches gay tolerance to Kindergartners. Parents are the only ones who should be having these types of discussions with their children–not teachers. Last time I looked, gays weren’t the only tax-paying residents living in the District of Columbia.
The same gay and liberal Americans extolling the SCOTUS ruling would have a hissy fit if public schools were allowed to bring prayer back into the classroom or God forbid– teach Christianity. Yet, many of you believe it’s okay for teachers to teach grade-schoolers about homosexuality, not Christianity. There are more Christians than gays in America– but go figure!
Gays do not represent the majority in this country. Not by a long shot; and don’t compare gay rights to the plight and horror that blacks endured during slavery and segregation in America. Bruce Jenner (or is it Caitlyn?) never had to suffer being shackled in chains like a slave, or drink from separate water fountains, or attend inferior schools because he’s transgender, gay or whatever sex he decides he his on a particular day.
I respect your right to love whom you want, but you must likewise respect the rights of others who don’t agree with your desire to marry–because of their religious or moral beliefs. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say you must be married to be considered an equal American to everyone else. I believe God loves all his children but being gay isn’t the “norm” in society. It if were, we would all be gay and heterosexuals would represent 3% of society, not the 97% they do today.
Don Lemon recently observed on CNN:
“Political correctness has become dangerous. We have to stop looking for reasons to be offended. . . Not everyone is going to — or should they have to agree with you. In fact, it’s better when people don’t agree with you. That’s how we learn. That’s what conversation is really about. It’s not supposed to be an agree fest.”
I agree but will be curious to see if Lemon practices what he preaches, particularly on this topic. I’m confident I will receive serious backlash for sharing my unfiltered (pun intended) views on gay marriage. But stifling other people’s free speech through intimidation isn’t American. Tolerance is a two way street–not the tyranny of the minority over the majority.
