Is the push for removing discrimination toward the LGBT community the same as race issues?
Idaho is comparing the sexual orientation anti-discrimination policy to a civil rights issue. The hateful blight of the Aryan white supremacist issue in Northern Idaho has been a trojan horse for discussion in our rural, conservative communities.
But is today’s battle in our city councils the same heroic battle as rooting out racism?
(Sidenote – With my family last night, I watched a remarkable movie entitled Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. The guy was hammered a few months ago by the media for his stance on marriage. Yet I would encourage you to watch this movie with your family.)
Citizens of Idaho Falls, in regards to LGBT discrimination being the same as racial discrimination, please consider this quote.
From Nicholas Cummings, a former President of the American Psychological Association:
Gay and lesbian rights activists appear to be succeeding in their efforts to convince the public that homosexuality is one identical, unitary, unvarying and inherited characteristic…. Persons who identify as homosexual fall along a very broad spectrum of personalities, ranging from shy young men who are so frightened of girls that they fear they must be gay to boys who preferred to play with dolls and wear girls’ clothing and everything in between. Contending that all same-sex attraction is an unchangeable or immutable characteristic like race is a distortion of reality.” (HT:Robert A. J. Gagnon)
