June is bustin’ out all over – with fundie fury aimed at Obama
THE election of a gay-friendly President was bound to set US fundies on edge.
But what really sent them into swivel-eyed, foam-flecked fury was Barack Obama’s proclamation that June should be designated LGBT Month to celebrate America’s lesbian, bi-sexual, gay and transgendered community.
Among the many Christian fundamentalists who regard this as nothing short of sacrilege is the Rev Michael Bresciani, an alleged “expert” on the “Second Coming” of Jesus Christ. Gay-friendly he ain’t!
Writing in Christian Voice magazine, Bresciani points out:
June 6 is D-Day, June 14 is Flag Day and this year we celebrate Fathers Day on June 21. These observances have long been a deep and revered part of American culture â€¦
June has traditionally been a month of honoring fathers, soldiers and patriots. Now, thanks to the social engineering of Barack Obama, we have a whole month to celebrate lesbians, bi-sexuals, gays and transgenders. In America, there will be about 290 million people who will likely not be rushing out to observe this month long celebration.
Barack Obama proclaimed June as LBGT month, saying he has partnered with the gay community to â€˜advance a wide range if initiatives’. He plans to enhance hate crimes, repeal â€˜don’t ask – don’t tell’ in the military and advance the right for gays to adopt.
We can’t say we didn’t see it coming, but choosing the month of June is almost a slap in the face to millions of Americans who choose to remember the fathers, warriors and patriots who have given so much to make the country what it is. Nothing could seem more like a futile attempt to mix oil and water. This is indeed social engineering, but it is not very sociable.
He rants on:
Will someone eventually explain to the President that there are yet millions of Americans who think the gay lifestyle is a perfect perversion of both the laws of God and of nature? They don’t mind the freedom that gays have under the first and the fourteenth amendment to have their own lifestyle. It’s America. But they are not even close to helping them celebrate it.
There is a great deal more of this numpty’s gibbering drivel, but I just can’t be asked to cut and paste the rest of it.
