Warning- Some Graphic Photos
For those who do not know what can happen to someone who is openly lesbian or gay, this is what can happen:
Oh, and this:
Now, according to Charles Moore over at The Spectator, that is what is happening today to those who oppose same-sex marriage. Moore claims that “To oppose gay ‘equality’ today is roughly as brave as it was to be publicly homosexual in, say, 1970: your position is not absolutely illegal, but it is perilous.”
This is about what happens when someone vocally opposes same-sex marriage:
Yeah, you might get taunted a bit, but honestly, has anyone been beaten to a pulp for being against same-sex marriage? For that matter, do people who are against same-sex marriage thrown out of their houses and forced to starve in the streets?
Now, Moore was lauding Archbishop of Canterbury Welby and the Bishop of London for, well, speaking out against same-sex marriage. The thing is, it doesn’t take all that much courage to be a bigot. In fact, most bigots are incredibly scared of the world that they don’t understand, and strike out to feel better about themselves. This is evidenced by the fact that most of these bigots will literally twist themselves into pretzels in order to maintain their bigotry even when presented with a logical argument that obliterates their reasoning.
Moore finishes up by saying:
The most laughable argument for the same-sex cause was that advanced by Lord Browne of Madingley, the former chief executive of BP. ‘Gay marriage,’ he told his fellow peers, ‘is a matter of strategic importance for British business.’ Really? Would we sell more to Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Russia or China if our top male executives turned up with their husbands for business dinners?
They don’t seem to have a problem dealing with women executives. By and large, businessmen at a certain level and politicians don’t really care if the person they’re dealing with is male, female, gay, straight, Black, White, you name it- and why? Because bigotry gets in the way of profits. The only time they really care about that sort of thing is when they can make a profit off of it.
Yeah, there’s exceptions like Exxon, but then again, their bigotry hasn’t really cut into their profits.
