Posted on 02/16/2012 5:22:02 AM PST by scottfactor
If it were not so terribly sad and disgusting, it might be just a bit humorous. But, there is no humor in the radical homosexual movement and its treatment of those who oppose its agenda. That fact was once again illustrated quite clearly recently in the Montgomery County, Maryland School District when the blatant hypocrisy of leftist radicals was on display. What might be ironically humorous if it were not so rotten is that the tables were turned on those who demand fair and unbiased treatment for all sexual deviants, but whose desire for fairness suddenly disappears when they are presented with the demand for equal treatment of those with whom they disagree. They are hypocrites in the truest fashion.
The advocacy group Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) had taken advantage of a service offered by the school district which allows groups to hand out flyers to students on occasion. They had distributed flyers containing information to help students who may be dealing with unwanted same-sex attractions. The flyers spoke against name-calling and encouraged tolerance for former homosexuals. But, those flyers caused the school districts superintendent, Joshua Starr, to become outraged, and he let loose with a verbal assault against the information contained in the flyers.
WNDs Bob Unruh reported on Tuesday that students at a public forum had asked Mr. Starr about the flyers,
"... [Superintendent] Joshua Starr told students that a flyer sent home by an advocacy organization supporting those who have chosen to leave the homosexual lifestyle contained information that was 'really, really disgusting.'
... Starrs response was that the flyers are 'reprehensible and deplorable,' according to a report in the Washington Post. The Washington Examiner quoted Starr blasting PFOX.
'We cant really do much about it unless we wanted to cut off all flyer distribution, which is an option,' he said. 'This group has figured out how to use that law to spread what I find to be a really, really disgusting message, frankly.'"
Perhaps Mr. Starr did not consider that the diversity knife cuts both ways. You can see by his inordinately hostile reaction that, just like every leftist radical, his knee-jerk response is to want to silence the speech of those with whom he disagrees. In this case, he does not just disagree; he has a vitriolic, visceral reaction to the message that homosexuals can and do choose to leave that degenerate, dead-end lifestyle.
According to his short biographical entry on the school districts website, Joshua Starr is married with children, but he certainly appears to be a hardcore advocate for the militant homosexual movement. The members of the radical homosexual movement detest any message that tells them they can escape from homosexuality. They despise hearing that their behavior is not genetic, as they desperately wish it were, because if it were innate, then they would have an excuse to do what they choose to do. When they see testimonies from former homosexuals who have left that lifestyle behind, they become enraged and react just like Mr. Starr, with vicious venom.
For him to declare the message of liberation from homosexuality to be really, really disgusting, reprehensible and deplorable makes him sound like a lunatic. The hellish forces in this world are feverishly pushing the abominable homosexual agenda on the people of the world, and their campaign in the United States has reached a frenzy under the regime of this truly deplorable man, Barack Obama (or whatever his name is). These people cannot stand for the truth about homosexuality to be told.
The members of PFOX are fighting back against this unjust treatment at the hands of a school district that demands fair treatment for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientationor, more correctlytheir disorientation.
As Bob Unruh reported,
PFOX officials suggested that the board of education should reprimand Starr for violating the districts nondiscrimination policy.
'We call on the Montgomery County Board of Education to enforce its nondiscrimination policy and censure Starr immediately,' said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. 'The policy mandates that schools provide an atmosphere where differences are understood and appreciated, and where all persons are treated fairly and with respect in an environment free of discrimination and abuse. Clearly Superintendent Starr has violated the boards policy.'
She continued, 'Starrs verbal abuse, disrespectful behavior, and slurs against the ex-gay community amount to hate and illegal sexual orientation discrimination, which are all forbidden by the policy.'
... She noted the district nondiscrimination policy also requires training for students and staff to ensure its implementation.
'Starrs flagrant violation of the policy demonstrates that all tolerance training and diversity education must include ex-gays, which is the only sexual orientation discriminated against in Montgomery County Public Schools. Its Respect for Differences in Human Sexuality lessons promote tolerance of gays, bisexuals, transgenders, cross-dressers and the intersexed, yet fail to include ex-gays, which explains the appalling lack of respect for former homosexuals. The board must act immediately to remedy this blatant discrimination and include ex-gays,' Griggs said.
Without threat ofor actuallegal action against the school district, I doubt the school board will reprimand Joshua Starr, especially since, as Bob Unruh reported, a representative for the school board has already said Mr. Starrs slurs are not an issue. Oh, but Mr. Starrs slurs are very much an issue, and his words are indefensible, in light of the districts nondiscrimination policy. Plus his words give the lie to the radical Lefts claim to want fair treatment for all people. It simply is not true, and they cant have it both ways. They cant sit there and demand that we all accept their perverse idea of diversity with respectful treatment of all sexual deviants, while they refuse to respect diverse worldviews with which they disagree.
Need I also point out that this is happening in our public schools? Were talking about a government-run public school superintendent who is fully on-board with the radical homosexual movement and who is pushing that message to the kids in that district. These people have invaded our schools, and they are shoving the abominable homosexual lifestyle message on our kids from the very youngest ages. That is what is truly reprehensible, Mr. Starr!
For him to sit there with his drawers in a wad because of the message of freedom from homosexuality is despicable. He apparently does not want to face the uncomfortable fact that homosexuality is a powerful, physical and spiritual addiction which can be broken.
One very powerful witness to this fact is Mr. Walt Heyer. His amazing story is one that homosexual radicals do not want to hear.
From the website of his book Trading My Sorrows, he writes,
Over 20 years ago, I underwent sex reassignment surgery at the hands of a skilled sex change surgeon, Dr. Stanley Biber.
Ever since I could remember, I felt like I was born into the wrong body. The diagnosis was gender dysphoria, or gender identity disorder. The transgender support community provided an answertake hormones and get sex reassignment surgery. In other words, change into a woman. But can you really change?
Dr. Biber claimed that he had changed me from a man into a woman. Years later the truth emergedDr. Bibers own words in an affidavit to a California court stated no sex change occurred. I was indeed still a man.
My perfectly good body parts had been amputated. Years of looking like and living as a woman did not bring the promised treatment or relief. I still suffered from psychological issues which needed to be properly diagnosed and treated.
I turned to Jesus Christ, who surrounded me with His loving people. Through their unconditional love, I finally received treatment for dissociative disorder and now I am restored as a father, husband and man.
Now we are celebrating my restored life, and I'm here to share the amazing story with you through my book, Trading My Sorrows.
Judging by his own words, Joshua Starr would consider Mr. Heyers story of redemption through Christ and his subsequent freedom from homosexual-related disorders to be deplorable and disgusting. Only a truly demented mind would think such things. I have spoken with Mr. Heyer through email, and he is a powerful and refreshing voice for the healing and transforming power of Christ in the lives of those who seek Him. I am thankful to the Lord for Mr. Heyer and his witness to many people who struggle in the iron grip of that terrible addiction of homosexuality and its various manifestations.
As with any strong addiction, escaping the homosexual lifestyle is certainly difficult, but it is possible, and for people like Joshua Starr to fight like rabid weasels to prevent the message of freedom from homosexuality from being spread is downright criminal, in my opinion. Mr. Starr would rather see people continue down the destructive, dead-end path of homosexual addiction than to find freedom from it.
Shame on you, Joshua Starr!
If you’re into pushing people’s buttons, the “ex-gay” button will drive the Libbys absolutely bananas. Their whole Civil Rights model of homosexual rights hinges on the unproven assumption that homosexuality is an innate characteristic, that cannot be changed.
Yeah, I noticed that gays love the stories of guys who were married for years and then suddenly realized they were gay and got divorced to go w/their new lover.
So, according to them, it is possible for someone to “really be” homosexual, but “act like” they are heterosexual.
This has always begged the question that how many homosexuals are “really” heterosexual but are only “acting” homosexual.
This situation, of course, is simply not possible, according to them!
Please fellow conservatives, stop letting lying leftist liberals put their words in your mouths.
Gay is their made up term. It does not apply. They should be referred to by all conservatives as SSAD for Same Sex Attraction Disorder.
Remember, just last year when the Marxists in the US Psychiatry profession (aka Pseudo doctors practicing fake science) tried to come up with nice sounding terms for various acts of pedophilia so as to remove the STIGMA (their words not mine).
We have to stop letting the lying liberal leftists control our language.
I promise you, your first thought when you saw him was what is that short hairy man doing wearing a dress?
Anyway, he/she is still a pilot for American so remember that when she gets all depressed and realizes she cut it all off and it didnt change things. Might not end well for a plane load of people.
“Their whole Civil Rights model of homosexual rights hinges on the unproven assumption that homosexuality is an innate characteristic, that cannot be changed.”
Agreed. To wit, had an arguement with one of my brothers about homosexual rights, and he kept trying to equate the battle being waged today by gay rights advocates with the civil rights battle of the 1960’s. I told him that black people CAN’t change the color of their skin, but queers CAN (and do) change their sexual orientation at will, and thus there is no comparison between the two.
Queers are emotional, sexual and psychological deviants, just like pedophiles.
You are completely right. When we use their vocabulary we are validating their world view.
I do not use the misnomer “gay,” except when I am quoting others or naming a group, such as PFOX.
Homosexual or sodomite are the terms I use. (I’m the author of this column).
Libs have replaced this with "I disagree with what you say and consider your words to be hate speech and think they should be outlawed".
I couldn't agree with you more...homosexuality has nothing to do with the characteristics of a person other than that the 'positive connotation' with which it often gets used (by those with the mindset to promote such perverted beliefs) portends to the fact that the individual in question is capable, prepared and willing to participate in deviant sexual acts... and then typically try to convince everyone that the mindset that allows such deviancy is just as wholesome as anyone else. All people are born sinners.... the specific name for those deviants who commit the sin of sex with member of their own sex are homosexuals. Since my definition of a homosexual is different perhaps than theirs, I avoid use of the word... suitable substitutes are 'those who engage in deviant sexual acts with member of their own sex' or 'sodomites'.
