As an addendum to the post I made just previous to this one, take a look at the following two web pages:
The Overhauling of Straight America
That article was published in 1987, and has served as an effective playbook for the various gay lobby organizations that have been very active in politics and media for the past 32 years. If you look at it closely, you will find strategies that are manipulative and repugnant, and they indicate more than once that the vilification of dissenters is required to lift up their own group. The authors actually admit in the article that the methods outlined are dishonest and fraudulent, but they apparently think that 'by any means necessary' is acceptable in their case.
Next, take a look at this article, which was published in the summer of 2016, three years before the recent Chick-fil-A capitulation due to pressure from GLAAD and other branches of the gay lobby:
We Have Been Warned
When that was written, many people likely dismissed it as alarmist, and trusted that the benevolent champions of the LGBTQ cause would take the high road. Why wouldn't they take the high road, when they speak so strongly for fair and kind treatment for LGBTQ people?
On a side note, in an effort to help a trans student, why is it necessary to force others to be uncomfortable?
High School Forces Girls to Share Locker Room with Biological Man
Trans people don't like to be told they have a mental illness, so how is it appropriate to tell girls in a high school that they are bigoted for feeling uncomfortable about undressing in front of a male? Doesn't sound very tolerant or empathetic to me. And by the way, if I say I identify as a paramecium, are people seriously going to honor that claim? Physical reality is not erased by one's imagination. The boy who is trans may believe he's a girl, but his twig and berries, and DNA beg to differ.
It's possible that originally, all the gay rights lobby wanted was to be treated with respect. That reality has been established for quite some time; all of the 21st century at least. However, that is no longer the goal, the bar has been moved yet again. Now the goal has moved beyond acceptance to compulsory celebration, including public school indoctrination of young children to concepts they are too young to properly process, according to many concerned pediatricians. Here is one of them.
The troubling thing about the process by which LGBTQ activist goals have been achieved is that dissenting opinions are now punished if not changed. Somewhere along the line, the people in charge of the gay rights activism forgot that you catch more bees with honey than vinegar. They were not content with just the previous propaganda techniques of making dissenters look like bigoted monsters. Now they use political pressure to drive businesses to bankruptcy if they don't jump on board the gay bandwagon.
Where will all this go? Depends on what you think is important.
After all, if a person doesn't believe God exists, then why would he or she care about someone's freedom of religion? If the public thinks religious people are all a bunch of bigoted neanderthals, who will care if their livelihoods are taken away?
According to Jesus, those who give mercy will get mercy in return. Perhaps the LGBTQ organizations should consider the consequences of treating others so poorly.
