White Christian Privilege

I was challenged recently about my assertion of white christian privilege by Amanda.   Well here is some well known evidence for it.   It does exist and it has continued to cause problems to this very day.   Hugs.

There were movies made during that time that we now consider classics, but they also perpetuated a view of the world that was white, straight, and God-friendly at all times. Movies better reflected reality after the Church got out of the business of policing Hollywood.

How did the Catholic Church impact the “Golden Age of Hollywood”? They made sure that very Hollywood movie from 1934 to 1954 followed a strict moral code that forbade nudity, excessive drinking, mocking the clergy, showing interracial couples (yep), and acknowledging the existence of gay people.

That’s what God wanted, after all.

Theocratic Constitution Party Makes Their CPAC Debut: Sexual Deviants Deserve No Legal Favor Or Protections

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 19:46

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/22/theocratic-constitution-party-makes-cpac-debut-sexual-deviants-deserve-no-legal-favor-protections/

The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The above logically leads to this:

No government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations contrary to what God has instituted. We are opposed to any judicial ruling or amending the U.S. Constitution or any state constitution re-defining marriage with any definition other than the Biblical standard.

We reject the notion that homosexuals, transgenders or those who are sexually deviant are deserving of legal favor or special protection, and affirm the rights of states and localities to proscribe offensive sexual behavior. We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through any courts or legislatures.

Finally, we oppose any legal recognition of homosexual or civil unions. We affirm the value of the father and the mother in the home and we oppose efforts to legalize adoption of children by homosexual singles or couples.

You’ll be shocked to learn that the Constitution Party raised money for Roy Moore’s Senate run.

BREAKING: Sessions Issues Long-Feared And Sweeping “License To Discriminate” Against LGBT Americans – Joe.My.God.

I am NOT a second class citizen.  I served in two different branches of the military and did two tours of duty.  I demand my rights and will not ask you to give what should already be mine.  Any right a religious person has doesn’t override my rights.  My existence, and rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is not dependent on the good will of any religious person.  I will not take a long step back to the 1950’s.  This is a secular country not founded as a theocracy.   Hugs

“Today’s guidance by Jeff Sessions proves this Administration will do anything possible to categorize LGBTQ Americans as second-class citizens who are not equal under the law,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD. “Freedom of religion is paramount to our nation’s success, but does not give people the right to impose their beliefs on others, to harm others, or to discriminate.

I am grateful to Dr. Evelyn Hooker for the study she did and got the leaders of her craft to see that gay people are simply people.    I wish I had know of this study growing up.  Would have made a huge difference I think.  Hugs

The 3 Easy Steps to Repeal Marriage Equality – YouTube

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 12:28

This is scary.  It is what I have been afraid of.  One reason I dislike these so called “freedom of religion” laws.  I don’t understand the deep hatred so many of these right wing religious groups have for gays.  Most of them make it quite clear these laws are designed to let them harm or discriminate against gays.  Specifically gays and transgender.   However how long will it be before someone will claim they can discriminate against blacks because their religious beliefs are based in white supremacy?  Will a public school teacher get the right to refuse to teach Muslim kids due to their deeply held christian beliefs?  This country has had a long struggle with discrimination and bigotry.  We had to install laws to keep people from indulging in hate acts against those groups they did not like.   Once you legally give permission for one group to indulge their bigotry, once you let one group be discriminated against, then other will try to be given the same “rights” and want the laws to let them discriminate against their disliked groups.   Talk about special rights, that is just what these religious groups want.  The special right to discriminate based on their own brand of faith.   I can not understand why they want to push these laws so hard.  Again I don’t  understand why these groups hate gay and transgender people so very much.   Of course the lack of education in the country today, the teaching of faiths over science and history, is a large part of the problem.  Look at the situation in Poland the last year.  They are going through the very thing we are starting now.   Be careful.  Hugs

Minnesota Couple With No Gay Clients Sues to Refuse LGBT Customers, Because God: WATCH – Towleroad

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:52

So how long before it moves from just denying service to LGBTQ people to denying service to blacks, mixed race couples, singles having sex out of marriage, and people belonging to a different religion.   Once you give people the right to discriminate one group, it won’t just stop there.   It will spread to anyone they have a prejudice against.   The US will become a place with blatant discrimination against a majority of people for “religious reasons”.  Hugs

Excerpt below:

The Daily Beast reports that the “lavishly funded” ADF has made anti-LGBT lawsuits a lucrative business with reported revenue of $61,864,483, some $430,000 of which went to the group’s president and CEO Alan Sears.

Donald Trump’s 10 Worst Appointees – YouTube

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 15:12

I tweeted earlier today that I was very worried because every cause I hold dear is now under threat by this president elects administration.  All the rights I fought for and wanted, all the equal rights of race and ethnic groups or gender equality, of concerns for the environment, concerns for public education… so much more.   Ron use to laugh because I use to read the news on my Ipad for about three hours before getting out of bed.  I don’t read much news on the news sites right now.  I can’t stand what is happening and I really fear the damage, the lasting impact of this new president and his team.  I ask every gay person, such as the log cabin republicans, who supported him how they feel now?  Why did so many vote against their own interest.  They may not have liked Hillary , but she wouldn’t have dismantled the very things important to your life.   This new president and his team will.   The more that comes out the more upset I get.   Be safe, be well, hugs
