Maine Morality Isn't

Love and faithfulness meet together;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
Psalm 85:10

I don’t know if you’ve ever thought of that verse from the Psalms as a guide for social action but maybe it is worth considering. Especially now that a people of decency and honor are forced to once again thwart the ongoing onslaught of our immoral leaders in Augusta. You should know by now that Gov. Baldacci signed into law a piece of legislation that is terribly misleading. It is touted as a bill to outlaw discrimination against people who believe they are homosexual. The battle cry is always couched in terms of being denied housing, loans, and jobs when the reality of the situation is that there is no way anyone would ever know about someone’s sexual orientation since there is nothing on of the forms that would ask such a thing. Furthermore, the per capita income of homosexuals is more, much more than the per capita income of heterosexuals. So the whole anti-discrimination language is a crock. But it’s worse than that and this is what many do not know.

There is already a hate crimes law on the books passed in 2001 in which certain conduct towards homosexuals is outlawed. So why is Baldacci’s new law necessary?

Well first, this is just a step to the legalization of civil unions and or homosexual marriage which I assure you will follow. But the Governor’s new bill also singles out gender identity. Which means that if you think you are a woman and you’re a man, you can use the women’s restrooms if you so desire and no one can say anything about it. So if you think you don’t want to discriminate against anyone, remember two things; 1. No one is being discriminated against and 2. When you are out with your daughter, granddaughter or wife and they have to go to the bathroom, they just may run into a man in the bathroom, or someone in drag putting on their makeup and you have no right to say anything for if you do, that would constitute a hate crime.

So as we go forth into the moral morass of our degenerate culture, remember righteousness and peace have kissed each other which means, among other things, we can stand for truth and morality in a powerful but peaceful way. Our role in the world is still redemptive; let us not forget that!

It's interesting to read this blog now given what the past few months have presented the State of Maine with regarding Homosexual Marriage.

For as long as I have been exposed to the gay lifestyle, it never ceases to amaze me that gay and lesbian members of society are so quick to let us know their sexual preference, while those that are not gay or lesbian just don't discuss these things...generally speaking.

Why do we need to know?

I dealt with being told I was discriminating against blacks and hispanics when I lived in Denver, and now I hear all the time about privileges needed for homosexuals.

I am currently in a position where I am the caretaker of a family member's homosexual partner. When it gets right down to it, aren't we all just human, with basic human needs?
