They're Here, They're Queer, and Now They're Coming for Christians and for Our Jobs
PJ Media ^ | JUNE 9, 2018 | PAULA BOLYARD

A handful of recent news items highlight the dangers Christians face as the moral revolution fully takes hold in America:

CrossFit executive Russell Berger was fired for tweeting that "pride" is sinful in the context of planned LGBTQ "Pride Workouts" at CrossFit gyms.

Berger tweeted: “As someone who personally believes celebrating ‘pride’ is a sin, I’d like to personally encourage #CrossFitInfiltrate for standing by their convictions and refusing to host an @indypride workout." He was referring to a CrossFit gym in Indiana that canceled the Pride event. “The intolerance of the LGBTQ ideology toward any alternative views is mind-blowing,” he added. “The tactics of some in the LGBTQ movement toward dissent is an existential threat to freedom of expression. The lack of tolerance for disagreement, which has been replaced with bullying Twitter mobs promising ‘consequences’, should be a concern regardless of your political stance.”

Berger is right, of course, but that didn't stop the New York Post from accusing him of going on a "homophobic Twitter rant." CrossFit immediately distanced itself from Berger's tweets and fired him on Wednesday. CrossFit CEO Greg Glassman told BuzzFeed News, “He needs to take a big dose of ‘shut the f–k up’ and hide out for awhile. We do so much good work with such pure hearts — to have some zealot in his off-time do something this stupid, we’re all upset.” Note the harsh language used. Glassman didn't just say something corporate like, "his comments are a distraction" or "his comments have no place at CrossFit" — he told Berger to "shut the f—k up."

So now, mere disapproval is enough to get you publicly canned from your lifelihood. Just as we said, but was dismissed by the Gaystapo.

There’s a reason that gays were treated so poorly in the past. Give them power and they will destroy your. Plan accordingly.

Personally, I think they should be sent to a special island where they could enjoy their perversion without affecting others.. OR get shot in the head (bad personal experience).

Since gays are allowed just about everything in today’s society, more than most, and even glorified in media, I don’t think they are suffering from shame enough to need “pride” parades.

Why? I’m ok with generic Gay Festivals. Heck, any group can have festivals or carnivals or whatever they want. But gays and lesbians don’t need “pride” in how they achieve orgasm. It’s just not important and frankly, some things should be private.

It is in 2018 garishly primitive for men to go around bragging about his penis and how many chicks he’s bagged. That is so Clinton Era. So gays should keep their sex lives quiet as well.

I will respect them when they hold a pride parade in Mecca or Medina.

You lose your job. Your source of income. This is completely unfair. The employer is not allowed to refuse to give a job to a gay, but is allowed to fire a normal person for having the wrong thought.

This is how they eliminate Christians, and take their money too.

No they won’t; they know what the Muslims will do to them if they tried.

I have mentioned many times in the past that the acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle is the Mark of the Beast. Originally I said it in jest. However with every day that passes it looks more and more like it is true.

It is Satan’s tool to destroy the Church. Unfortunately it appears to be a very effective strategy.

Sounds like a lawsuit for wrongful termination is in his future - and in the future for a bunch of LHTGQRCXLOPers whatever the currently approved title is......

I was thinking “Mark of Beast” with regards to losing employment for not conforming to articles of faith of progressive philosophical, political ideological outlook. Being unemployed makes it so that one cannot buy or sell, so someone is locked out of the economic system.

Just like racism, if someone had reacted like that against a gay person, firing them from their job, all heck would have broken loose.

This is a good article, but there's an angle to this whole issue that is worth exploring.

Something has changed in the last couple of years with regard to the LGBTWhateverTheF#%& movement, and it's clear to me that the pendulum has started to swing the other way -- or at least stopped its trajectory toward the deviant side.

The most recent obvious sign I saw was the number of comments I saw in the media from homosexuals who came down on the side of the Christian baker in the recent Supreme Court case.

I think we're seeing a recognition among many of these people that they have already crossed the line from "acceptance" to "nuisance." They only have to look at black Americans to see where this road will take them. Black Americans "won" the civil rights battles decades ago. They are now a protected and privileged class -- to the point where they will always be given the benefit of the doubt in any situation where there is even the tiniest hint of a dispute. And yet here we are in 2018, and the black race in America is more fouled up and dysfunctional than ever before. Very few people -- including many black people -- who have a choice in a personal or business situation between dealing with a black person and dealing with anyone from another race will voluntarily choose to deal with the black person. Their "victories" in the civil rights arena have made them such an enormous pain in the ass that they're even worse off today than they were 60 years ago.

he whole idea of cross fit workouts is wrong, imo. I see many people who are hurt or overdeveloping some areas and not working others sufficiently.

It’s sad that people need to be taught as adults how to take care of themselves - this should be part of parents and elementary education of children - but some how it’s gotten lost.

In come people to start a “craze” and get people addicted to too much exercise or too repettious exercise both of which to me are not in line with God’s word because people make the gym their god.

What’s crazy is people who’ve had surgeries already or specific structural issues in their body paying lots of hard earned money trying to follow along with programs not suited for their body.

Top it off with CEO’s who disrespect a huge part of their clientelle with comments like take a big dose of shut the f up, or whatever he said and catering to only certain groups of people by such comments which blantanly show other clientele he doesn’t really care about them, just their money.

Homosexual acts should have never been made legal. It didn’t matter how rigorously the laws were enforced just that they kept a lid on these perverts and kept them from running amuck just as they have done.
