Gay-rights activists have won the culture warwhy the need to act like sore winners?
Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertsons victory over the A&E network, which sheepishly reinstated him late Friday, is a rare culture war victory for conservatives. Though Robertsons controversial remarks to GQ magazine were fairly cringeworthy, it is exhilarating to see the zero-tolerance liberal commissars who police the public square with such Javert-like zeal get their, er, goose cooked by their worst nightmare: a rural, Southern, fundamentalist Christian duck hunter who does not give a tinkers damn what they think.
Bien-pensant activists and their corporate and media enablers lecture us endlessly about the virtues of diversity and tolerance. In fact, these are Orwellian terms they use to mask the intolerant monoculture that they truly desire one that sends dissenters from the maximalist gay rights line to the well, to the closet.
We may (must?) celebrate a gay man hanging naked by hooks embedded in his back before a cheering crowd as happened at this years Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco, the annual sadomasochism festival, sponsored in part by Marriott Hotels and American Airlines but we must banish from public sight a Bible-quoting fundamentalist who believes what nearly all Christians believed about homosexuality until around 50 years ago. A society in which St. Pauls letters are considered hate speech is one with no place for traditional Christians. And people are surprised that these Christians push back?
The thing is, gay-rights activists have won the culture war. America has changed and is changing with astonishing speed....

Good writing. Time magazine? Surprised.
The tides of battle are fickle, indeed, but the War is far from over.
It's like saying the British put down the uprising after Bunker Hill.
We have only just begun to fight.
...actually, I’m less enthusiastic the further into it I read...
Sorry, but Time is wrong and Duck Dynasty is right! Just another minor victory for decency and religious free speech (which has been on the decline lately).
"Though Robertsons controversial remarks to GQ magazine were fairly cringe worthy"
They are only controversial because people with AN AGENDA choose to make them controversial. 99% of straight people didn't find them cringe worthy.
The expression is "tinker's dam," as in something of no more consequence than the mother of a tinker. Two hoots. Same idea. (Not that I personally endorse looking down on tinkers or their saintly mothers. . .)
The WHOLE article boils down to sat that we have the right to be wrong. I don’t believe we’re wrong!
Did you read the sentences, “The thing is, gay-rights activists have won the culture war. America has changed and is changing with astonishing speed”?
No, they have not “won” the culture war. For the sake of my daughters, they have not won the culture war.
“Tinker’s Damn”—Sweet phrasing, that.
The homo agenda is about misogyny.
It’s less than 50 years ago. I believe I was in my twenties when the whole “being homosexual is an acceptable lifestyle” agenda started to really be pushed. That was 30 something years ago.
In any case, they don’t win. I’ve read the book.
I dont get it. Robertson spoke bluntly and plainly. How else can one talk about the differences between starights and homosexuals without talking about basic biology? He didnt use childish terms like bush and pussy, which are truly vulgar, because he is long past being childish.
I want to be in your echo chamber
everyone I am around is a lib
” who believes what nearly all Christians believed about homosexuality until around 50 years ago”
Errrrrr, no. Up to the PRESENT day and beyond, TYVM.
Do I tolerate as a Christian....yeah, whatevah.
Do I ACCEPT and CELEBRATE as a Christian? Um, no.
Tinkers DamnSweet phrasing, that.
British phrase, if I’m correct.
I just love old sayings. My grandfather used to say “cyarn”. Found out many years later her meant “carrion”. (Scots-Irish blood, here......with Cherokee for the mix. ;-))
He would say....smells like cyarn in heah!
FWIW, the explanation I heard for the phrase was that "tinkers" traveled around doing odd jobs like repairing pots and pans with holes in them. The dam was a small clay wall built around the hole that contained a small amount of molten metal until the metal cooled and completed the repair. The now-worthless dam was then discarded. I have no idea if that is where the expression actually came from.
Ooops. That rings a bell. I did read that once, now that you remind me, and it makes more sense. I think your explanation is the real origin. Sorry about that. In any case, we've established that it's a "dam" and not a "damn," darn it!
“America has changed and is changing with astonishing speed”
Yes, Satan has built an army of leftists, media moguls, Hollywood “stars”, public officials and Godless young.
I haven’t heard that word used in many years. Your grandfather and my grandmother must have been some of the same clan.
She was a lifelong Repub and the reason I became one. She’s likely spinning in her grave right about now...
It’s sad now bible believing Christians need a come out the closet day and demand tolerance from all.
Rod Dreher ping for later
#10: You have hit one of the key issues squarely on the head, i.e. “for the sake of my daughters”.
Leave aside the fact that there are homosexuals/Lesbians, etc. in our society. If they kept a low profile almost no one would be concerned about them (in their own homes).
It is the “flaunters” and “gay proselatizers” who are making the trouble, and that is what is basically being fought back against.
How can you explain to a young child (male or female), why two men or two women are kissing in public, or worse, as happens at San Francisco during some of their parades, esp. on Gay Pride Day?
It is the lack of “discretion” and “modesty”, or for some, a general and/or total lack of respect for the beliefs of others, that is at the nexus of the fight between the “flaming fags” and the “conservatives”.
To make it worse than it already is re this cultural struggle, the Obama regime, through the Dept. of Justice, is promoting “diversity” nationally instead of just enforcing laws EQUALLY about discrimination.
“Hate crime laws” are just more icing on an already frosted cake of laws to protect people like you and me and everyone else who is an American citizen or a legal or even illegal resident here.
When you create “protected classes”, you create “class warfare”, be it economic (i.e. Marxist), over which bathroom to use (transgender issues), about women in combat (this is about the physical differences between most men and most women), or religious discrimination).
The Constitution didn’t say create protected classes whenever you feel like it. It set out laws for “ALL AMERICANS” no matter who they are.
The Left likes division, deconstruction, and subversion of basic morals, ideals, laws and our culture.
The “Culture War” is hardly over. In fact, as some writers here at FR have pointed out, it has “only just begun”, and the counter attack is going to be long, sharp, and destructive of the Left in ways you can’t even imagine.
Conservatives are not sitting around on their asses just complaining. They are planning responses, collecting intelligence on the Left enemy, studying their strategies, tactics & goals, and are pinpointing their weak spots for a devastating retaliation.
“Duck Dynasty”, “Hobby Lobby”, Chick-Fil-A” and other incidences like those are just the opening shots from our side, like those at Bunker Hill, Lexington and Concord.
We WILL have a “TRENTON”, the Green Mountain Boys, and The Swamp Fox/forces, until we can gather the big army to crush the left.
It is being done now as I write. It will be done tomorrow, and the next day, next week, next month, and next year(s) until the Left is crushed into oblivion.
It isn’t going to be pretty, or tame, or even non-violent (i.e. re attacks on our protestors not being met with a violent response, no guns, just fists and fury).
We are fed up with the lies, decept and subversion of our country by the Left. Making a list, checking it twice, locking, loading, then aiming and charging. All in good time my fellow patriots, all in good time.
Writing for 60 year olds and up ?
What does 'Fundamentalist' mean?
To me; it is someone who actually BELIEVES what the Book actually SAYS.
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.
Isaiah 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.
2 Peter 2:13b Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.
49. "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.
50. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.
1. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
3. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
4. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
5. if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6. if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7. and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
8. (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
9. if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
10. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
11. yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
12. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
13. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.
But there IS hope!!!
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...
now the homosexuals of the media bubble are pushing the homosexual float in the rose bowl parade.
A parade dedicated to football is hijacked to endorse a sexual fetish.
notice how time magazine is trying to declare victory in the determination that homosexuality is “born that way” rather than a conditioned behavior. (real science ignored)
sad that time magazine is now a mere propaganda tool for brownshirts.
"I don't know HOW Nixon won, I don't know ANYBODY who voted for him." - Pauline Kael
"Funny" how the maps have been redrawn to now cast even old Republican victories as "Red States".
I don’t know seems to getting a lot of play these days...
What’s a ‘staright’? LOL. Just kidding. ;)
It is refreshing to hear someone use the proper terms for the human anatomy. I find it amusing that people are embarrassed by the words penis,vagina and rectum,yet they don’t mind using vulgar terms.
Then there’s Fiddler’s F**k.
I must admit that I like the VW van purse that pervert is carrying.
Poor Hospers. He didn’t get very many votes.
Too funny, I just saw Ron White on TV, and he was using this saying extensively !
Heck, yeah. I thought thats why they invented Latin! So you could talk about anything but sound classy! ;)
