A Place in History for Gay, Transgender Americans
ABC News ^ | May 30, 2014 | By KAREN MATTHEWS, AP

Posted on 05/30/2014 2:53:34 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The announcement Friday that the National Park Service will begin installing markers at places of importance to the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans is a step toward including them in the national narrative — and components of education, supporters said.

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell made the announcement Friday at the Stonewall Inn, the scene of riots in June 1969 that are widely credited with starting the modern gay rights movement.

"Part of the job of the National Park Service is to tell this story," she said.

Sounds great. Instead of arrows to show which trail to go, the marker for AIDS will be seen first. (BLECCCHHHHPUKEVOMMMIT)

The Larry Craig National Monument in MSP International Airport will be fascinating.

I reject that people who prefer anal rather than vaginal intercourse are somehow worthy of mention in a praiseworthy context that somehow connects however they contributed to the nation with their sexual practices.

I am tempted to ask “what is next”, but then think that the better question is “where is the outrage?” The answer is that outrage is now forbidden.

Well, many Americans are not fooled, nor do they approve, and that is the factor that drives much of the homosexual lobby’s demands.

At the risk of being repetitive, all I can say is:

Sick, sick, sick.

What a sick and depraved country America has become, to have things like this going on.

Will a National Park ever be named for Reggie Love? I want to recommend a location:

They are not part of our damn history, they’re part of the decline. The only real acknowledged homosexuals who warrant mention in America’s history are Liberace, Jeffrey Dahmer, and some guy who George Washington had dismissed from the military during the Revolutionary War.

This is made up history. This is whitewashing, installing stuff that isn’t there. It is as disingenuous as what the Himmler wing of the Third Reich wanted to do: aggrandize and glorify periods of Germanic history where they were living in mud huts. Even Hitler face-palmed on that lunacy.

"Important Homosexual Contributions to American History."

The only book that's actually shorter than the Cliff Notes.

Ha! I know Cut-and-Shoot, TX quite well! Been through there dozens of times. Not quite a homo territory!

To add, it sure would be nice if there was some kind of national “political party” which would protest this grotesque insanity. You know, like a political party that would have leaders standing up and opposing such things for reasons of both fiscal responsibility and decent, moral values. Doesn’t seem to be such a Party in existence anymore.

They’re gonna have to declare a whole lot more people homosexual for this to work out. “And this is the bathhouse in Philadelphia where the girls worked out our fabulous Constitution, except for Mason, who left in a snit when he found out Jefferson was wearing the same outfit. He’s just sooo butch.”

This news comes out on the same day we learn that a VA hospital hides an image of Jesus Christ?

Disgusting.

If my memory serves me right, the taking of their homosexual lovers into battle was part of the reason the Roman Empire began to decline and their battles lost??

Obamatrons always celebrate the culture of death, and repudiate that which brings life.

You just STFU about Liberace*, Dude.

My Grandmother loved the guy and said if I practiced the piano really hard for 4 hours a day, I could be just like him. It didn't work, but I'd still hate for Grandma to find out about Liberace after all these years!

* Actually a really awful musician.

Liberace was great in the 1960’s Batman series. After that, I lost interest.
