“Protecting one group’s identity liberty may, at times, require that we burden others’ belief liberty. This is an inherent and irreconcilable reality of our complex society,” Feldblum wrote.

Identity liberty??? I'm going to be charitable and assume that this barbarism refer to the freedom to believe that you are whatever you believe yourself to be.

The Freedom to Pretend trumps Freedom of Speech in this New Democratic America!

Yikes! This woman is clinically insane.

The enemy of Free Speech. Her denegration of individual liberty is in itself a hate crime.Some one should call her in it.Mark Steyn recently fought the Human Rights Commission of Canada who wanted to censor and fine him for publishing the historical truth about radical Islam and Sharia LAw. We should not be going down that slippery slope.

I know that; but when utter morons like this say such things publicly they should be HELD to it re. Islam or be made to admit that their target is Christianity( and freedom) only.
This from a person who sounds Jewish( by the last name). Someone has to confront such people- ask them directly- “do you mean Islam should not be tolerated in this country? It believes (this) re. homosexuality. Get him on record.
This infuriates and sickens me. It’s nothing less than cultural suicide that is being promoted.

“Demonic” is becoming a seemingly accurate term with which to describe all these people Obama is attempting to put into places of power.

You're absolutely right and I'm going to incorporate that into my new tagline. See below.

She has a totalitarian mindset, closer to Pol Pot than to Stalin.

They can't go after everyone who disagrees with them, but they might try to ruin selected individuals for expressing "intolerable" beliefs in order to intimidate others (like that "human rights" agency in Canada does).

Eleanor Roosevelt said that Communists were just liberals in a hurry. These people are not content with the slow degradation of society and morality accomplished by the schools and the media, but want to hurry up the process--they are degenerates in a hurry.

Well I believe that we shiould be attacking her for hate speech. Her position is hate speech against the 1st amendment. She needs an avalanche of constitutionalist attacks.

Did you ever notice how your dog will cock its head to one side when you make a funny noise in front of it as if to say, “What are you talking about?”

That’s probably what I looked like after I read this article. It’s unbelievable that this person is even getting any kind of consideration. This is way beyond the pale.

Ugh, I know I’m going to regret it but I can’t help myself (and this isn’t aimed at you - I see this mistake all the time by other readers).

I realize what you meant to say is “homosexuality is immoral” but the double whammy of using two of the words incorrectly brought out the grammar police in me. So here we go ...

You said “sodomy is unnatural”.

1. Sodomy includes oral sex between married husband and wife. I’m going to guess that virtually all married couples have, at one time or another, engaged in it. They aren’t going to hell for this as part of a monogamous, til-death-do-us-part relationship. Thus, I’m willing to bet a great deal of money that all heterosexual citizens (especially all heterosexual men) are sodomites. Open the dictionary. That’s what the word means.

2. It occurs IN NATURE, therefore it is, by definition NATURAL. Murder is natural (it is also immoral). Lying is natural (it is also unethical). The word “natural” is not a synonym that can be interchanged with other words indicating perceived acceptability or morality.

I see people making this mistake all the time on here. The correct phrase is “homosexuality is immoral” or “homosexuality is a sin”. If you say “sodomite lifestyle” or “unnatural” it’s no different than inner-city Ebonics where the meaning of words is disregarded. It’s as if someone insisted the color of the sun is green. Words have specific meanings. The meanings of those words are found in the dictionary. (The literal translation of what you wrote could just as likely have read, “Oral sex between males and females of the human race does not occur in nature.”)

Yeah, I realize it’s obnoxious to say this but I’ve seen this error 5,001 times on the site. It’s like someone saying 2+2=5. At some point, you just can’t take it anymore.

*Duck and cover*

“where the meaning of words is disregarded.” - that should have read “are disregarded”. I hit post thinking that it would preview it again didn’t uncheck the “I have already previewed or do not wish to preview this composition” box. Nothing like a verb tense error in a post on grammar. I’m going to go have a cup of coffee and get off the blogs. I can’t focus today.
