Since Chick-fil-A founder and president Dan Cathy “came out” and publicly opposed gay marriage, liberals, predictably, have been denouncing him and every conservative under the sun for what is unfairly, but routinely, referred to as bigotry, homophobia and hatred of an entire people. Nancy Pelosi, our own Iron-ing Lady has clucked into the conversation as well. And in case you ever wondered where she acquired her greasy fingers, she has provided us with that answer in her paltry attempt at sneering her nose at Chick-fl-A, and conservatives, while endearing herself to those gays and lesbians who are just weak-minded enough to overlook her condescension towards them. Pelosi has stated she prefers Kentucky Fried Chicken over Chick-fil-A.
We know that in real life Pelosi could care less about KFC or Chick-fil-A. But our Iron-ing Lady needed to make some type of statement to her homosexual and liberal base to acknowledge her “disgust” with Cathy for his stance on tradition marriage, no matter how blatantly irrational and obviously false. This is what liberals do, after-all. They merely blow with the wind, in whatever direction that wind happens to be blowing on that particular day. Pelosi thought she could use a “controversy” (which what Cathy stated is not) and make conservatives look weak and foolish, hateful and bigoted, while at the same time propping herself up as a model of endearing tolerance and acceptance. Pelosi has merely shown herself to be the fool.
Conservatism has come a long way since the 1940’s and 50’s when there was virtually universal agreement among conservatives that homosexuality was an absolute abomination, and that included going so far as to regulate what gays and lesbians did in the privacy of their own homes. That type of mentality no longer exists in modern conservatism. Most conservatives, today, while they may oppose gay marriage, and may oppose homosexuality itself, have absolutely no desire to regulate or control or punish the act of homosexuality. Certainly not to the extent of our parents and grandparents generation. And we neither are interested in regulating what gays and lesbians do in the privacy of their own homes any more than we desire to regulate what they do in public – within the realm of reasonable and polite conduct, which also goes for heterosexuals.
While tolerance for homosexuality has dramatically increased within conservative circles, that doesn’t mean we regard homosexuality as either a civil or Constitutional right. And we certainly do not support judges making up laws based on their own personal opinions. We, conservatives, (most conservatives at any rate) are not interested in punishing someone for being gay or lesbian. We certainly do not want laws on the books that ban homosexuals from participating in, and alongside of, society. Nor do we desire to push them out of society. In fact, most conservatives today openly welcome gays and lesbians into society, as we do with anyone who acts in a responsible, dignified and proper manner in public.
Most homosexuals who are liberal (for we know there are many conservative gays and lesbians as well) are hell-bent on pushing themselves and their marriage equality agenda on our entire nation, with total and absolute disregard for what the will of the people want. That is sheer arrogance and a recipe for a devastating set-back for homosexuals in America. And as America moves back to its conservative roots, while it accepts homosexuality to a greater degree than in decades past, if gays and lesbians agitate and aggravate conservatives too much, that support will begin to diminish and homosexuals will be back to pre-Stonewall times. This ought to frustrate the hell out of conservative gays and lesbians who know the games that liberals are playing with them, at their expensive. And conservative gays and lesbians ought to know that liberals who play these games with their sexual orientation only do so because they feel it will score them political points, not because they, like our Iron-ing Lady, Nancy Pelosi, really cares about you or whether your rights, and your entire lifestyle, are being trampled on by a restaurant owner.
If gay marriage is ever going to come to fruition in America, it can only do so when a majority of American people favor such a redefining of marriage, and show that support in the voting booths. Gay marriage, indeed, homosexuality itself, will make no inroads so long as it continues to force itself on the America people and make absurd and improper demands on us such as to either accept them or be labeled and branded as bigots and homophobes.
We, conservatives, are much stronger, and more resolved, than weak-minded buffoons like our Iron-ing Lady, Nancy Pelosi. Not only is she playing chicken with homosexuality, she is chicken. So are all liberals who have come out in opposition to Cathy and his American right to have and to voice his opinion. Freedom of speech is not only for liberals. But every time a conservative speaks up on behalf of an issue liberals reject, said liberals try to silence conservatives. Cathy said nothing improper, nothing bigoted, nothing hateful.
Pelosi, on the other hand, is far more hateful, far more bigoted, and far more a hypocrite for her pathetic response to Cathy than is Cathy towards gays and lesbians. Why? Cathy is sincere in his stance against gay marriage, which has nothing to do with homosexuality in of itself. How sincere is Pelosi, really, towards homosexuality, or any issue that she supports, which she only supports because she has been told by strategists such support will equate into more votes for her? Try as Pelosi might, this Iron-ing Lady cannot smooth out the wrinkles of her convoluted absurdity.
In fact, the fabric of liberalism, on which these wrinkles reside, have so distorted, and so faded, the original facade of this outfit that at this point it is best to just throw it out and buy something new. (Some might consider this to be an insult against Pelosi herself. It is more of an insult against liberalism, than any one liberal. But, and although Pelosi is old and is showing her age, and as a politician is indeed worn, faded and wrinkled, it could also be taken to mean it is time to replace Pelosi with a fresh face in congress that is not so set, as stone, in their ways.)
It’s up to all gays and lesbians to decide how far they want to take the issue of gay marriage, and in which direction they wish to take it. America is in fact becoming more conservative, little by little. Either they can reject liberals like Pelosi, who only pander to them, and embrace conservative who, although may not support gay marriage, certainly do not support outlawing and punishing homosexuality or homosexual behavior – and would accept, in principle, homosexual marriage if that is what a majority of Americans also supported. Or – gays and lesbians can fall and collapse back into themselves and lose everything they have fought so hard to attain for so many decades. It is all a matter of priority, and what is most important to gays and lesbians. Fighting a losing battle, or accepting that gay marriage is not realistic right now, but may be, and would have a better chance of being real, in the future if they were more patient.
Nancy Pelosi, the Iron-ing Lady, is willing to push back the gains made by gays and lesbians for her own personal agenda. How is that working for homosexuals, and improving upon the homosexual cause, in America?
