More men speaking in girls' 'dialect', study shows
http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-25232387
12/5/13

More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows.

This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.

But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.

The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California.

"We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of California who led the research.

"We believe that uptalk is becoming more prevalent and systematic in its use for the younger generations in Southern California," she added.

The team recorded and analysed the voices of 23 native Californians aged between 18 and 22. The researchers were therefore not able to infer similar language patters in older Californians.

Sounding ditzy
 
People who speak uptalk are often misunderstood to be insecure, shallow or slightly dim, according to the team, who say this was not necessarily the case.

Speaking to the BBC's Inside Science programme, co-author Amalia Arvanati, from the University of Kent, said it was hard to know how this process started.

"People talk about Frank Zappa's song, Valley Girl. Finding out where it started is very difficult because we don't have good records of how people use pitch.

"One possibility is that this is an extension of a pitch pattern that we actually find in most varieties of English which is used when you're making a statement but you're [also] asking indirectly for the interlocutor to confirm if they are with you," Prof Arvaniti said.

She added that "uptalk" had negative connotations which made men less likely to admit to using it, but what was clear was that it was spreading.

"It grates on people, some people think it sounds really ditzy or insecure. This does not accurately come across like that to the native speakers."

Women leaders
 
Claire Nance, a linguistics lecturer at Lancaster University, commented that the research reinforced the fact that uptalk was "increasingly widespread across all kinds of people".

"Typically, women are trail-blazers in language change and take up innovative features first, then males start using them later.

"No spoken language ever remains stable and constant change is very much the norm. However, change often causes alarm among people who do not use an innovative feature, and uptalk appears to be another example of this trend," Dr Nance added.

She explained that speakers may use uptalk to convey politeness or empathy with the listener, but that this was not always understood by non-uptalkers, perhaps due to its similarity to question intonation.

could it just be that the valley girls of yesteryear are now raising their kids, and their kids are having kids, thus the "dialect" is transferred from generation to generation as the children learn to talk?  Roll Eyes

Gay couples find uneven access to health insurance
3/27/14

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Nearly every day for three months, Carl Bechdel had to make calls or send emails to try to get family insurance coverage for his husband and himself under President Barack Obama's landmark health law.

The Harrisburg, Pa., couple had sent an insurer their application and a month's premium in early December but heard nothing. Weeks later, they were told their application was not processed because Pennsylvania doesn't recognize same-sex marriage. So Bechdel pushed back, repeatedly explaining their predicament in phone calls and emails. Finally, they got a call and apology from the president of the insurance company last month, plus a family plan that started in March.

"It was never a matter of price. It was a matter of respect," said Bechdel, a 60-year-old retired attorney who married Dan Miller in 2012 in Washington, D.C.

For gay couples, access to family insurance plans under the law is not guaranteed this year, and their options run the gamut, mirroring in part the patchwork of state laws governing same-sex marriage that have changed rapidly in recent years.S

In Iowa, where gay marriage is legal, insurers selling plans in the marketplace created under the law offer policies to gay couples and families. But the major company in Tennessee's marketplace does not offer coverage at all to same-sex couples. Policies vary by insurer in Florida. And in Ohio, a couple sued for access to family insurance plans.

The federal government has belatedly sought to solve the inconsistencies, telling insurers this month that if they offer spousal coverage to heterosexual couples, they must provide that benefit to legally married, same-sex couples. But that doesn't become a requirement until next year, and doesn't address coverage for couples in civil unions and domestic partnerships.

In the meantime, the administration has encouraged companies to comply with the new policy voluntarily. Federal regulations do not require insurers to offer any family policies. And when companies do, they have some flexibility in how they define family members.

In Aberdeen, N.C., Thomas Hafke, 30, went online in December and bought a family plan for his husband and himself from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.

But the Chapel Hill-based company then canceled family coverage it sold to Hafke and about 20 other same-sex couples through the marketplace because of contract phrasing that defined "spouse" as "opposite sex."

"It felt like legalized discrimination," said Hafke, a server, who married 32-year-old Chad Higby in Washington, D.C., last fall.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield reversed course in January, saying it would offer the coverage to same-sex married couples and domestic partners.

"It was very important for these people to be able to purchase family coverage," said Michelle Douglas, a Blue Cross and Blue Shield spokeswoman. "In recognition of that, the company made the decision to make that coverage available."

Knowing that a partner can get coverage is one of the more effective messages in getting those in the LGBT community to enroll in a plan under the law, said Katie Keith, a researcher at Trimpa Group, a consulting firm that works with gay rights advocates.

"Even though it's not a requirement for 2014, it makes it more of a possibility for people," Keith said.

While it will be months before insurers are obligated to offer such coverage, gay rights groups have praised the administration's move, saying it brings some clarity to the issue and will ease access for gay couples when the requirement takes effect next year.

"Many same-sex married couples and their families are hurting right now because they've been refused access to more affordable family health insurance plans," Rea Carey, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said in a statement.

Bechdel and his husband sought coverage from one of Pennsylvania's biggest insurers, Pittsburgh-based Highmark Inc. The insurer is now reworking its policies there and in West Virginia to let same-sex couples and domestic partners purchase family coverage, a spokesman said. In the meantime, the company has worked with about 15 couples in the two states to get them family policies.

"Originally, the products were developed following the guidelines of recognized marriage of state laws," said Aaron Billger, a Highmark spokesman.

In Delaware, where Highmark also offers plans and same-sex marriage is legal, the insurer already provides such coverage for gay couples.

The company expects to offer family coverage in the early spring in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Other gay couples have found uneven access to family plans.

Al Cowger Jr. and Tony Wesley Jr. of suburban Cleveland sued the state of Ohio and U.S. government after hours-long phone calls and months of trying to get family coverage through the federal insurance marketplace.

The couple, who have been together for 28 years, married in 2012 in upstate New York and have a 7-year-old adopted daughter. They say that because of Ohio's gay marriage ban, they have been denied a family plan under Obama's law in violation of their constitutional rights.

In their lawsuit, Cowger said he talked to help-desk personnel with healthcare.gov who told him that he and Wesley had been approved for family coverage in the marketplace. But a problem surfaced when the representative tried to purchase the policy and couldn't.

Cowger said he was then told he couldn't get family coverage because Ohio does not recognize his marriage. But the insurance company, Medical Mutual of Ohio, says it offers family coverage to same-sex couples both on and off the exchange.

"After 28 years," Cowger said recently, "we're just so sick of having to jump through hoops and get around all these restrictions, all the stuff that comes with these prohibitions, to be treated like a family."

It might as well be, considering how people are cowing down in fear of the gay lobby, so gays are getting stuff done that under normal conditions wouldn't happen, but now there is major fear spreading that people will get sued if they don't accept gays.

Another Glaring Example of Gay Intolerance

We’ve heard it for years now from gay activists: “You need to be tolerant and inclusive. You need to embrace diversity.”

The only problem is that in reality, tolerance, inclusivity and diversity only go one way—and pity the person who dares challenge that narrow and exclusive way.

This is a lesson that Brendan Eich, the CEO of the Internet giant Mozilla, just learned firsthand, with employees calling for his resignation because, in 2008, he made a donation to support Proposition 8 in California, upholding marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Of course, had he supported the redefinition of marriage in 2008, he would be hailed as a hero today.

Just think of Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, who, together with his wife, donated $2.5 million to support the effort to redefine marriage in Washington state in 2012, to the celebration of the media.

Or think of Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks and also an avid supporter of homosexual "marriage."

When a Starbucks shareholder noted at a public meeting in March 2013 that profits were down after a boycott of Starbucks was called for by pro-family organizations, Schultz gave an unequivocal reply, which was widely praised: “If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38 percent you got last year, it’s a free country. You can sell your shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much.”

Ah, the voice of tolerance and diversity!

Other top companies also raised their voices in 2012-2013 in support of redefining marriage, including Microsoft (which released an ad for Outlook featuring two women kissing on the courthouse steps after getting married); Expedia; Budweiser; HBO; Smirnoff; Kenneth Cole; Levi’s; Nordstrom; and Kraft, maker of Oreo Cookies (Kraft released a multistacked rainbow Oreo cookie for Gay Pride Month).

As reported by Laura Stampler in Business Insider on March 28, 2013, “While the Supreme Court heard arguments regarding the legalization of gay marriage this week, some of the biggest companies in the world risked isolating its [sic] conservative consumer base to come out in loud support of marriage equality.”

Yes, all these companies were calling for tolerance and diversity, standing as champions of inclusivity—unless, of course, you happened to disagree with their position. In that case, you were quickly branded an intolerant bigot, a narrow-minded Bible-basher, a disciple of the late Fred Phelps.

Just ask Dan Cathy, now CEO of Chick-fil-A, who has deemed it prudent to withdraw entirely from the culture wars, not wanting his company to be associated with divisive social issues after the controversy that surrounded Chick-fil-A in 2012.

As reported by Forbes.com, which mocked Cathy’s values with the headline “Gay Marriage Still Wrong, But I'll Shut Up About It and Sell Chicken,” Cathy now agrees “that the ‘lingering identity’ of Chick-fil-A with ‘anti-gay groups’ that jumped to its defense in 2012 has meant ‘alienating market segments.’”

And this, of course, underscores the irony of the upside-down world in which we live: If you, as a business leader, say, “I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, in keeping with the definition of marriage throughout our history,” you are now dragging your company into the culture wars, creating undue controversy, mixing business with politics and alienating certain segments of the market.

But if you say, “I believe that we should radically redefine marriage, change our laws and our education system to reflect those changes, and create a new model previously unknown in history,” then you are not dragging your company into the culture wars or alienating certain segments of the market.

As for Brendan Eich, it is now being reported that, “staff at tech company Mozilla are calling for CEO Brendan Eich to resign a week after he took the job, after it emerged that he gave donations to an anti-LGBT campaign.”

Oh, the horror!

And how much did he give? Did Eich’s donation match the extravagant giving toward LGBT causes by executives like Tim Gill, founder of Quark, who gave $10 million in 2006 alone; or the aforementioned $2.5 million donation of Amazon’s Jeff Bezos; or the $1.5 million of Yahoo! investor Daniel Loeb; or the $600,000 and $100,000, respectively, from Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer; or even the $100,000 and $40,000, respectively, from Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin, given in opposition to Proposition 8?

Not a chance. Eich donated $1,000 to support marriage in 2008 (yes, just $1,000), and for this single, relatively tiny act, his employees are in an uproar, with tweets like this being commonplace: “I'm an employee of @mozilla and cannot reconcile having @BrendanEich as CEO.”

Or this one, which includes a classic example of gay activist doublespeak: “To me, @Mozilla is about openness & expression of freedom. I hope to see us have leadership that represents those values in their actions.”

What? Mozilla is “about openness & expression of freedom,” and so, to paraphrase, “I’m calling for the censure of the CEO of the company because his views differ from mine”?

Eich, for his part, was quick to repent of his transgressions, as it is reported, “In a post on his blog entitled Incluseiveness [sic] at Mozilla, Eich responded to the criticism and said: ‘I express my sorrow at having caused pain’ and promised an ‘active commitment to equality’ at the firm.

“'I am committed to ensuring that Mozilla is, and will remain, a place that includes and supports everyone, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, economic status, or religion.'”

Perhaps after serving some time in a tolerance re-education camp, Eich will be deemed fit to lead the company. And perhaps he can explain to us how, in keeping with his profession of “inclusiveness,” he is actually supporting those employees who, for religious or other reasons, supported Proposition 8, as he once did. Or does inclusion go only one way?

As I’ve said on a number of occasions in the last few years, Orwell would be proud.

The country went nuts over this in AZ,yet passes with out so much as a blub in MI

Mississippi Lawmakers Pass Controversial 'Religious Freedom' Bill

Mississippi lawmakers passed a controversial "religious freedom" bill on Tuesday night, allowing residents to sue over laws they claim go against their religious beliefs, the Washington Post reported.

Supporters of the bill say it protects religious freedoms while critics suggest it's a way to discriminate against gays and lesbians -- similar to the bill infamously proposed in Arizona in February, which ended up being vetoed by Gov. Jan Brewer.

The legislation was introduced last week for a third time. Twice before, lawmakers missed key deadlines, putting the bill at risk.

The most recent version also took out parts that certain civil rights groups opposed, the Post said. The state's House and Senate -- both controlled by the GOP -- passed the bill by wide margins.

The bill also adds "In God We Trust" to the state seal, which Gov. Phil Bryant said he supports.

"This is a victory for the First Amendment and the right to live and work according to one's conscience," Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, said in a statement. "This commonsense measure was a no-brainer for freedom, and like the federal [Religious Freedom Restoration Act], it simply bars government discrimination against religious exercise. The legislature gave strong approval to a bill that declares that individuals do not have to trade their religious freedom for entrance into public commerce."

The American Civil Liberties Union suggested otherwise.

"We remain hopeful that courts throughout the state will reject any attempts to use religion to justify discrimination," Jennifer Riley-Collins, executive director of Mississippi's ACLU chapter, said in a statement. "Nobody should be refused service because of who they are."

Mozilla Co-Founder Brendan Eich Resigns as CEO, Leaves Foundation Board

Brendan Eich, the well-known techie who has gotten swept up in a controversy about his support of California’s anti-gay marriage law Proposition 8, is resigning as CEO of for-profit Mozilla Corporation and also from the board of the nonprofit foundation which wholly owns it.

Mozilla confirmed the change in a blog post.

“Mozilla prides itself on being held to a different standard and, this past week, we didn’t live up to it. We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it’s because we haven’t stayed true to ourselves,” read the post, in part. “We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better.”

In several interviews this week, Eich had insisted that he would not step down from the job he was only recently appointed to, due to the intense backlash over a $1,000 donation he made in 2008 in support of the ballot measure to ban gay marriage.

“So I don’t want to talk about my personal beliefs because I kept them out of Mozilla all these 15 years we’ve been going,” he said to the Guardian, for example, yesterday. “I don’t believe they’re relevant.”

Not so, of course. In an interview this morning, Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker said that Eich’s ability to lead the company that makes the Firefox Web browser had been badly damaged by the continued scrutiny over the hot-button issue, which had actually been known since 2012 inside the Mozilla community.

“It’s clear that Brendan cannot lead Mozilla in this setting,” said Baker, who added that she would not and could not speak for Eich. “The ability to lead — particularly for the CEO — is fundamental to the role and that is not possible here.”

She said that Eich — who created the JavaScript programming language, among other prominent computing achievements — had not been forced to resign by her or others on its board, which includes prominent Silicon Valley entrepreneur and investor Reid Hoffman.

“I think there has been pressure from all sides, of course, but this is Brendan’s decision,” Baker said. “Given the circumstances, this is not surprising.”

Indeed, those circumstances included vocal protests on Twitter by Mozilla staffers and a call by the OkCupid dating site to not use Firefox.

The controversy has been a difficult one for Mozilla, which could be described as more of a movement than a tech company and which has a very vocal community around it.

It has also resulted in scrutiny of its governance, in which Baker and also Eich — who have worked together for 15 years since founding Mozilla on deeply held beliefs over the development of an open Internet — played a big part.

In addition, three of Mozilla Corporation’s board members — former Mozilla CEO and current Greylock Partners VC John Lilly, former Mozilla CEO Gary Kovacs and well-known tech exec Ellen Siminoff — have recently resigned.

But each of their departures seems to have been only tangentially related to Eich’s appointment — though none of them supported his selection as CEO, according to numerous sources, for other reasons — and not to the controversy over Prop 8.

Baker said that she had not known about Eich’s views on gay marriage throughout most of their working relationship, until the donation came to light last year.

“That was shocking to me, because I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” she said, noting that there was a long and public community process about what to do about it in which Eich, then CTO, participated. “But I overestimated that experience.”

Baker — who became emotional at one point during the interview — noted that she was “doing a fair amount of self-reflection and I am wondering how did I miss it that this would matter more when he was the CEO.”

Preserving Mozilla’s integrity was paramount, she said, especially since “we are heading into a period of global mass surveillance and the role of those fighting against will be more important than ever.”

She added: “This is hard since Brendan is a founder and has contributed so much here. But making sure others continue to join and support Mozilla’s efforts is even more important.”

Baker said there was not another leading candidate for the CEO role as yet, although Mozilla had been conducting an extensive search using Spencer Stuart before the Eich selection, which also included another internal candidate, Jay Sullivan.

“There are certainly very talented people we have talked to, so we are not at ground zero by any means,” she said. “But we are now in the middle of what is clearly a crisis, and this had to happen.”

A crisis indeed, not helped much by a series of Eich interviews this week, in which he declined to apologize and used what can only be described as pretzel logic about how a clearly tolerant community like Mozilla should also support what many now consider intolerant beliefs.

Eich told the Guardian, for example: “So far we’ve been able to bring people together of diverse beliefs including on things like marriage equality. We couldn’t have done this, we couldn’t have done Firefox One. I would’ve been excluded, someone else would’ve been excluded because of me — I wouldn’t have done that personally, they’d have just left. So imagine a world without Firefox: not good.”

He also dragged in a truly bizarre point about people in Indonesia not liking gays marrying to justify his continued leadership. He noted to the newspaper that LGBT marriage was “not considered universal human rights yet, and maybe they will be, but that’s in the future, right now we’re in a world where we have to be global to have effect.”

(Hey Brendan, does that mean we need to just say bygones about some of the virulent anti-women sentiments and laws in some countries, since it’s a Firefox world after all? No, I did not think so.)

“I think I’m the best person for the job and I’m doing the job,” Eich insisted to the Guardian.

Throughout the interviews, it was not hard to get the sense that Eich really wanted to stick strongly by his views about gay marriage, which run counter to much of the tech industry and, increasingly, the general population in the U.S. For example, he repeatedly declined to answer when asked if he would donate to a similar initiative today.

Instead, he tried to unsuccessfully hedge those sentiments and, perhaps more importantly, did not seem to understand that he might have to pay the inevitable price for having them.

Thus, something had to give — and it did.

When asked about worries that the continuing controversy about Eich would have had broader impact, such as negotiations to renew a longtime lucrative contract with Google — which has been a high-profile supporter of gay rights — Baker said that while making this move aligned with that, it was not a factor in Eich’s departure.

“This is more important than business relationships,” she said.

Here is the full Mozilla blog post on the Eich departure:

Bill Maher: "There Is A Gay Mafia -- If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked"

In the online-only "Overtime" portion of his HBO show Real Time, host Bill Maher weighed in on the Mozilla controversy, and did not react in a way that you would think. Maher seemed to disagree with gay rights activists for targeting Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich because of a 2008 donation to support a ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in California.

"Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don't think it's very fair," guest panelist fmr. Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) said.

"Good point," Maher responded.

"I think there is a gay mafia," Maher said. "I think if you cross them, you do get whacked."

Transcript below.

    MAHER: What do you think about the Mozilla CEO having to step down over his donation to a pro-Proposition 8 group.

    The Mozilla -- which I'm wearing right now, by the way. I didn't know what Mozilla was. I saw it on my computer, but -- it's Firefix, right? It's the browser.

    So this guy apparently does not want gay people to get married and he had to step down. What do you think of that, the question asks.

    FMR. REP. TOM DAVIS (R-VA): Because he gave $1,000 eight years ago and it's come back to haunt him.

    CARRIE SHEFFIELD, FORBES: Well, and he gave it when President Obama was still against gay marriage. So, I don't think it's very fair.

    MAHER: Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.

If You Do Not Conform, The Thought Nazis WILL Get You

If you do not conform to the new politically correct moral code in America, you cannot be a CEO of a major corporation.  If you think that I am joking, just read on.  I am actually deadly serious.  If you are a young person in America today, what you believe about certain issues is going to determine how high you can climb the ladder in your professional life.  In fact, a day is rapidly approaching when anyone that wants to have any measure of professional success in our society is going to have to conform to the moral code.  If you choose not to conform, the thought Nazis WILL get you.

Just check out what happened to Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich this week.  He was forced out after it was discovered that he had donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 back in 2008…

    Mozilla Chief Executive Brendan Eich has stepped down, the company said on Thursday, after an online dating service urged a boycott of the company’s web browser because of a donation Eich made to opponents of gay marriage.

He broke the politically-correct moral code of the thought Nazis, so he must pay.

It doesn’t matter that 52 percent of the voters in California actually voted in favor of Proposition 8.

It doesn’t matter that this is something that happened six years ago.

It doesn’t even matter that he was really good at his job…

    While gay activists applauded the move, many in the technology community lamented the departure of Eich, who invented the programming language Javascript and co-founded Mozilla.

    “Brendan Eich is a good friend of 20 years, and has made a profound contribution to the Web and to the entire world,” venture capitalist Marc Andreessen tweeted.

He broke the code and so he must pay.

And in case you are wondering, this basically means that anyone who is against gay marriage is now essentially disqualified from being CEO of any major corporation in America.

So if you are a CEO and you are reading this, you better keep your mouth shut if you want to keep your job.

The thought Nazis are monitoring you.

But this isn’t just happening in the private sector.  According to a stunning Buzzfeed report, Barack Obama told the top military officers in this country that they could either support the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell or they could resign…

    In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign, the Commandant of the Coast Guard said.

    In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything he said to us, that’s private communications within the Oval Office, but if we didn’t agree with it — if any of us didn’t agree with it — we all had the opportunity to resign our commissions and go do other things,” he said.

Could this have something to do with the widespread purging of the military that has taken place under Obama?

That is a very good question.

But one thing is crystal clear – if you want to rise to the top of the U.S. military in the future, you better conform to the new moral code.

If not, the thought Nazis will come after you.

We live at a time when political correctness in America has gotten completely and totally out of control.  If you can believe it, there is even a major movement to ban the word “bossy”…

    Sheryl Sandberg, the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook and author of the best-selling book “Lean In,” has recruited a slew of celebrities to launch a national campaign to ban the word “bossy,” claiming it discourages girls from taking on leadership roles.

    “I think the word ‘bossy’ is just a squasher,” “Glee” star Jane Lynch says in a campaign PSA, while Beyonce states: “I’m not bossy… I’m the boss.” Actress Jennifer Garner asserts that “being labeled something matters,” and famed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg adds the kicker that we “should just ban the word ‘bossy’.”

    Singer Victoria Beckham, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Girl Scouts USA CEO Anna Maria Chavez and CNN foreign correspondent Christiane Amanpour are also involved in the campaign urging the word be silenced.

If we continue down this path, what will this nation look like in a few years?

During a recent interview, Dr. Ben Carson compared the current political environment in the United States to Nazi Germany…

    “[We're] very much like Nazi Germany,” he responded. “And I know you’re not supposed to say ‘Nazi Germany,’ but I don’t care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population.”

    “We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe,” he continued. “And it’s because of the PC police, it’s because of politicians, it’s because of news. All of these things are combining to stifle people’s conversation.”

And you know what?

He is right.

We are becoming more like Nazi Germany with each passing day.  In fact, if you want to read much more about this, please see my previous article entitled “25 Signs That America Is Rapidly Becoming More Like Nazi Germany“.

In America, we are supposed to be able to believe what we want to believe.

In recent years, about half of the nation has been in favor of gay marriage and about half the nation has been against it.

Are we now going to tell half the country that they are going to be banned from holding any high position in our society unless they conform to the new moral code?

What kind of country will we have if we do that?

Romans 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.


2Corinthians 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.


Hebrews 7:24  But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Heb 7:25  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
Heb 7:26  For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Heb 7:27  Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.

And in case you are wondering, this basically means that anyone who is against gay marriage is now essentially disqualified from being CEO of any major corporation in America.

That is fear tactics, because that's simply not true. What happened at Mozilla was internal, but yes, it was over his anti-gay marriage stance, and the one who pushed it was one of his co-founders of Mozilla, "Mitchel" Baker (they say she's a female married to some software guy, but looking at her I have my doubts!), who had become CEO of the Mozilla Foundation, which owns Mozilla Firefox.

just what is she trying to say with that strange hairdo?

The country went nuts over this in AZ,yet passes with out so much as a blub in MS

Here's why...

The nation has a new state law that goes both ways, it seems. And the interesting thing about the law is that even its supporters think it doesn’t go all the way.

Last week, Mississippi governor Phil Bryant signed the Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act that lets the state’s citizens and businesses challenge laws they believe substantially conflict with their religious beliefs.

If this sounds familiar, it should. Several states have considered similar bills recently. In February, Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoed a bill  that raised a ruckus across the land because it would have let business owners use their religious beliefs to discriminate against people, specifically homosexuals.

The big difference between the Mississippi law and the vetoed Arizona bill is that in Mississippi people and businesses can now sue in state court, not just in federal court, to prove an existing local ordinance or state law forces them into sin. In Arizona, homosexuality would have been put up there on the sign that reads: “No shirt, no shoes, no service.”

Opponents of the Mississippi law, like the Human Rights Council, say it is now basically open season against gays in the Magnolia State because it could allow people to refuse service to gays and minorities by suing for exemptions to any future anti-discrimination laws. (It should be noted that there is no state law specifically against discrimination in Mississippi.)

Supporters say if the law had been around earlier, it could have helped a pastor fight a city ordinance that prevented setting up a church on the town square. The Holly Springs ordinance said 60 percent of the surrounding property owners had to agree to have a church as a neighbor. The pastor had to take the fight to a federal court before the city would agree to a settlement.
Sound confusing? Well, it is. And, as happens when people start clamoring about who discriminates against whom, the arguments drip with irony.

Let’s write those two previous paragraphs another way:

Opponents of the Mississippi law say it is still possible for people to use their religion as a basis for discrimination, while supporters say the law will help keep people from being the victims of discrimination based on their religion.

The political process is another irony. Opponents to the bill flexed their political muscle from the get-go by raising a red rainbow flag of warning in the national media and through old-fashion statehouse arm twisting by organizations like GLADD  and the Human Rights Council that brought in celebrity big hitters like former ‘N Sync singer Lance Bass. This pushback resulted in several amendments to a bill that undoubtedly would have gone a whole lot farther up the dirt road of discrimination if the state had denied opponents their civil right to lobby and to protest.

History has its own irony to throw in. As pointed out by Mississippi house speaker Philip Gunn, the bill is pretty much like the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act signed by President Clinton. In short, the act said the federal government has to have a really, really good reason to keep a person from exercising religious freedom. In other words, Uncle Sam better have a good excuse to compel a person to sin.

The Supreme Court later said the act does not apply to the states, which is why we’re seeing these restoration to religious freedom acts popping up all around the country
.

Here is one last irony to throw in, just for good measure. At the time, the RFRA had the support of not only the Christian Legal Society, but also the American Civil Liberties Union, proving once again that politics makes for strange bedfellows.

One of the regulars down at Sparky’s Diner said something the other day that folks might want to keep in mind about this and future debates over religion freedom and discrimination. The freedom to have a belief, whether religious or sexual orientation, is not a license to impose that belief on those with different or differing beliefs. Actually, the real comment was “Be careful, ‘cause someday, your ox is gonna be the one to get gored.”

I read a bit about RFRA recently(which was put out under Clinton/Congress in 1993 - yes, it was a BIPARTISAN bill) - I don't understand it completely, but nonetheless it seemed to be designed as just that...INTENSIFY the whole Hegelian Dialectic game over this "religious freedom" agenda. Ultimately, even the courts subsequently have been a MIXED BAG over this since then(POLARIZED is the more appropriate word here).

It's been all by design.

Front-Page Gay Marriage Kiss Proves Unprofitable for Newspaper

A regional newspaper has reportedly lost “thousands of sales” after publishing a picture of two homosexual men kissing on its front page.

The Bristol Post featured the image on March 31 to mark the city’s first same-sex marriage.

Editor Mike Norton says the drop in sales surprises him, as the paper received only nine complaints.

“But, clearly, what people say and what people do are different," he says. "Of course, I knew that. But I didn’t think it would apply in this case.”

He adds, “I’ve decided to ask the Internet. I want to hear from the people who didn’t buy the paper because of that picture. Tell me why. I ask only that you are reasoned and honest. But I want to start a dialogue and genuinely understand why the picture put you off.”

In March, the BBC heard how the government “completely ignored” two-thirds of a million traditional marriage supporters.

An audience member told BBC’s Question Time that “a huge swath of the population” had been sidelined by the government.

She referred to the Coalition for Marriage petition supporting traditional marriage, which has over 668,000 signatures.

Comments on Norton’s blog vary. Some defend the newspaper’s decision to publish the image. Others say the sales dip reflects how those opposed to same-sex marriage are fearful of voicing their opinions in public.

The CEO of Mozilla stepped down last week after coming under fire for backing traditional marriage.

Brendan Eich, who also created the widely used JavaScript computer language, had previously given $1,000 to Proposition 8, supporting marriage between one man and one woman.

Author Andrew Sullivan, who is homosexual, says, however, the backlash “disgusts him” and wonders if Eich will “now be forced to walk through the streets in shame.”

Sullivan adds, “Why not the stocks? The whole episode disgusts me—as it should disgust anyone interested in a tolerant and diverse society.”

Christian Speaker Detained at Canadian Border Over Opposition to Homosexuality

American citizen and Christian speaker Peter LaBarbera was detained at the Canadian border and denied entry to the country as a result of his work opposing homosexuality, according to reports.

LaBarbera, who is director of the United States-based group Americans for Truth about Homosexuality and was scheduled to speak at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association this weekend, stated that he spent hours responding to questions from authorities with the Canada Border Services Agency after his flight landed Thursday night in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The agency was allegedly responding to a campaign initiated by a homosexual rights group set to stop LaBarbera from entering the country. LaBarbera’s passport was seized and he was released temporarily to the custody of Bill Whatcott, a prominent activist in Canada who has challenged free speech issues in the country.

LaBarbera, was set to speak on the link between pro-abortion and homosexual activism during the pro-life conference, was then ordered to return today to appear before a board of the Canada Border Services Agency at Regina International Airport for an appeal on whether his message violates Canada’s hate propaganda law.

Americans for Truth About Homosexuality defines itself as a non-partisan, non-profit group “dedicated to exposing the homosexual-bisexual-transgender activist agendas,” and according to his site, LaBarbera believes he “had been flagged as a result of a campaign by the leftist group Intolerance Free Weyburn” as an “alleged purveyer of ‘hate.’”

“After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTA’s website – a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada’s ‘Hate Propaganda’ law (essentially the potential for ‘public incitement of hatred’ against a group of people based on their ‘sexual orientation’),” he stated.

LaBarbera said the “Orwellian experience at customs dragged on for more than three hours as a formal document was issued outlining my denial of entry under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.”

Matt Barber of BarbWire.com, a friend of LaBarbera’s, also outlined in a blog post on Friday that Canadian border agent Darren Bannick told LaBarbera that evidence was found on his website that he was “targeting” a group of people based on their sexual orientation.

LaBarbera has stated that he hates no one, but rather only desires for men to be freed from sin.

“As an evangelical Christian, I believe that all people, including homosexuals, must be treated with respect and the grace of Christ. As a sinner myself, I am no ‘better’ than the man or woman engaged in homosexual sin. We all need the forgiveness of Jesus Christ,” he wrote in a previous blog post.

“I adhere to the universal philosophy shared by so many who follow Christ: ‘Love the sinner. Hate the sin,’” he continued. “In fact, if I truly lacked compassion and hated homosexuals as my detractors falsely and maliciously claim, I would not have been invited to speak by the leaders of the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association.”

Uhm...scripture doesn't say that - and this is propaganda I've heard for many, many years in these Babel church buildings(and these John Hagee-types).

Ephesians 2:1  And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
Eph 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Eph 2:3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Eph 2:4  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)


1Timothy1:9  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

University of South Carolina To Teach Your Daughter How To Be A Lesbian

“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:” Romans 1:26

Funny thing, if people really are “born gay”, why would they ever have to be taught it? Hmm…

Campus Reform: An upcoming LGBTQ seminar at the University of South Carolina Upstate (USCU) will teach students How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less and will focus on LGBTQ cultural mores. According to the school’s website, theater artist Leigh Hendrix will perform her one-woman show,How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less, to kick off the sixth Bodies of Knowledge Symposium and Conference.

The show is a one-hour performance that follows Butchy McDyke, a motivational speaker and expert lesbian, as she “deftly guides her captive audience in an exploration of self-discovery and first love, coming out, lesbian sex, queer politics, and a really important Reba McEntire song.”

Hendrix encourages her audience to shout “I’m a big ‘ol dyke!” in a show that is “one part instructional seminar, one part personal story, and one part wacky performance art.”

The symposium is funded by outside grants as well as university funds according to Dr. Lisa Johnson, the Director of the Center for Women’s & Gender Studies at USCU. Dr. Johnson declined to discuss what percentage of the funding was coming from the university.

“Until you call and ask how much money has been spent on heterosexual literature, I’m not going to answer that question,” Johnson told Campus Reform.

Earlier this month, the South Carolina House of Representatives voted to cut almost $70,000 in funding for two public universities, including $17,142 from USCU, over literature containing gay themes. source – Campus Reform

Canadian Border Agency Overturns Decision to Bar Biblical Marriage Speaker from Country

The Canadian Border Services Agency has overturned a decision to deny a Christian speaker entry into the country because of his biblically-based work in opposition of homosexual behavior.

As previously reported, Peter LaBarbera, the director of the U.S.-based Christian ministry Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, spent hours responding to questions from authorities with the Canada Border Services Agency after his flight landed Thursday night in Regina, Saskatchewan. He was seeking entrance into the country as he was scheduled to speak on the link between pro-abortion and homosexual activism at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association this weekend.

LaBarbera was told that he was being detained over a possible violation of the Criminal Code of Canada regarding the “public incitement of hatred.”

The Canadian Border Services agency was allegedly responding to a campaign initiated by the homosexual rights group Intolerance Free Weyburn, which was set to stop LaBarbera from crossing the Canadian border. According to a blog post from LaBarbera, the agency seized his passport and searched his belongings before releasing the speaker to the custody of Bill Whatcott, a prominent activist in Canada who has challenged free speech issues in the country.

“After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTA’s website – a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada’s ‘Hate Propaganda’ law,” he stated.

He was scheduled to reappear before the Canadian Border Service on Friday for an appeal, at which time the decision to deny entry was reversed.

“[The guards] said quite simply and immediately that the person in charge did not feel they had grounds to apply the hate propaganda law to my appearance,” LaBarbera told the Leader-Post following the hearing. “That’s gratifying, as always.”

The Christian speaker and writer says that while he finds his initial treatment by the border agency disturbing, he understands that it had been under pressure to bar his entrance, and is thankful that the decision was overturned.

“There was a concerted effort by Intolerance Free Weyburn, ironically named as they are, to specifically lobby a government agency to block speech and I think it’s a good precedent that ultimately their demands were not honored,” he told the Montreal Gazette.

LaBarbera said that free speech—in both America and Canada—should allow for a civil discussion on the matter of homosexuality without punishment by the government.

“You should be able to have a debate on this issue,” LaBarbera said. “There are hateful homosexual activists, there are hateful people on the right, but hopefully we can have a civil debate for people who can be willing to disagree without hating the other side.”

Christians Arrested on Canadian Campus for Distributing Literature Against Homosexual Behavior

Two Christians who focus their ministry efforts on the defense of the biblical family were arrested on a Canadian university campus on Monday after officials asked them to leave when they disagreed with the content of the literature that they sought to distribute.

Peter LaBarbera, the director of the U.S.-based Christian ministry Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, and Canadian activist Bill Whatcott were placed in handcuffs and escorted off the University of Regina campus when they refused to leave.

“We are a diverse campus. We are a welcoming campus,” Vice President Tom Chase told reporters. “We celebrate that diversity, and our staff felt that the material and some of the things they had with them simply contravened that policy and we asked them to leave.”

But Whatcott asserted that the men had a right to be on campus and that they should not be censored for the content of their speech.

“I’m not leaving,” Whatcott told university officials after being barred from distributing the literature, according to reports. “You guys are intolerant and should be ashamed of yourselves for shutting down our message without even considering it.”

When Whatcott and LaBarbera proceeded with their outreach, they were arrested, charged with mischief and later released. However, university officials told CBC News that the Christians would be monitored for any behavior that could promote hatred against homosexuals.

“I’m a Christian. I can’t hate people,” LaBarbera told reporters after the incident. “We all struggle with sin—[homosexuality] just doesn’t happen to be my sin. But the idea that you can’t have an open debate on homosexuality on a college campus and that some speech code is brought in to kick people off because they have a viewpoint that most students probably haven’t heard, seems to me to be pretty undemocratic.”

He was wearing a t-shirt with text regarding “hate crimes against Christians who disagree with homosexuality” when he was escorted away in handcuffs.

As previously reported, LaBarbera spent hours responding to questions from authorities with the Canada Border Services Agency last Thursday night after his flight landed Regina, Saskatchewan. He was stopped as he sought entrance into the country as a scheduled speaker at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association conference, held this past weekend.

According to reports, the Canadian Border Services agency was allegedly responding to a campaign initiated by the homosexual rights group Intolerance Free Weyburn, which was set to stop LaBarbera from crossing the Canadian border. LaBarbera was told that he was being detained over a possible violation of the Criminal Code of Canada regarding the “public incitement of hatred,” and his belongings were searched. He reappeared before the Canadian Border Service on Friday for an appeal, at which time the decision to deny entry was reversed.

“[The guards] said quite simply and immediately that the person in charge did not feel they had grounds to apply the hate propaganda law to my appearance,” LaBarbera told the Leader-Post following the hearing. “That’s gratifying, as always.”

LaBarbera and Whatcott are scheduled to appear in court on May 26. The plan to continue their outreach at the University of Saskatchewan today.

Not very Christian. I have this feeling they weren't there to distribute pamphlets...

Hmm, so he decided to wear that shirt before they went to the campus? They were on a mission, and it wasn't to save souls!

Pat Sajak Blasted for Coming Out... As Straight

Last weekend, Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak took a satirical jab at the media's love affair with all those out-of the-closet stories when he tweeted, "Damn the career consequences! I'm hereby proclaiming my heterosexuality!"

The faux announcement has now caused a firestorm of anger on Twitter directed at the game-show host, and now HuffPo's Gay Voices has picked up the tweet.​

A few examples of not-so-enthusiastic responses to Sajak's announcement:

LGBT Activists Target Amazon
Outraged that company allows users to donate to Boy Scouts of America


 A new anti-Amazon campaign has been launched by some in the LGBT community outraged over the company’s charity donation program that gives purchasers the option to donate to Boy Scouts of America.

Amazon’s new program Amazon Smile allows shoppers to pick from a wide range of charities to which to dedicate a portion of the price of purchase items at no cost the buyer. The creative charitable program has earned widespread praise.

But some on the Left are not so enthused. The reason: one of the charities listed is the Boy Scouts of America. In response, a new anti-Amazon petition has been created, and one particular Huffington Post writer is attempting to drum up support for the campaign.

HuffPo’s Pascal Tessier—who calls himself the “First Openly Gay Youth Eagle Scout”—declared the new program “nothing to smile about,” created a Change.org petition, and has published an article decrying Amazon’s failure to discriminate against users’ support of the discriminatory organization (or something).

Here is an excerpt from Tessier’s plea for support of his anti-Amazon petition:

    Amazon is a progressive company, and it's a friend of the LGBT community. Jeff Bezos donated several million dollars to Washington State's marriage equality campaign. And that was exactly why I started a Change.org petition asking Amazon to follow its own polices, and to delist the BSA until they stop discriminating against Scout leaders like Geoff.

    In fact, Amazon Smile's own website specifically states that eligible organizations must agree to a "participation agreement" before they are deemed eligible. And if you actually look at that agreement, it says right there under "Eligible Organizations," plain as day, that those organizations cannot "engage in, support, encourage, or promote: intolerance, discrimination or discriminatory practices based on race, sex, religion, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, or age."

Iowa Newspaper Editor Fired for Criticizing ‘Queen James Bible’ on Personal Blog

 A newspaper editor in Iowa has been fired for opining on his personal blog that the Queen James Bible is an attempt by homosexuals “to make their sinful nature ‘right with God.’”

Bob Eschliman has worked as the editor of the Newton Daily News since 2012, and has served as the publisher of the Clarinda Herald-Journal. But he found himself out of a job this past week when he spoke his mind about the Queen James Bible on his personal blog.

“It’s pretty easy to brush off a nonsensical contrived version of the Bible, but that’s not the deceivers’ end goal,” Eschliman wrote. “No, they want all Christendom to abandon their faith. They do that by ‘proselytizing’ to church leaders to change their view on homosexuality.”

“[Jesus] said there would be deceivers. He said those deceivers would cause Christians who remain true to His teachings to become reviled. He said false prophets would follow to deceive even more, and that lawlessness will abound,” he continued. “If you ask me, it sounds like the Gaystapo is well on its way. We must fight back against the enemy.”

However, journalist and commentator Jim Romenesko then picked up on Eschliman’s post and wrote about it in an online article entitled Iowa Newspaper Blasts the ‘Enemy Gaystapo’ and the ‘LGBTQXYZ’ Crowd.

Romenesko outlined in his brief report that he emailed Eschliman and inquired if he could write about homosexuality objectively because of his published views. Eschliman ignored Romenesko’s correspondence, but removed the post from his blog.

The Newton Daily News reported on Tuesday that management learned of Eschliman’s comments last week and placed him on suspension. On Monday, Eschliman was officially fired.

Shaw Media President John Rung, who owns the publication, issued a statement about the matter, asserting that Eschliman’s views could have harmed the newspaper’s reputation.

“Last week, Mr. Eschliman expressed an opinion on his personal blog that in no way reflects the opinion of the Newton Daily News or Shaw Media,” he commented. “While Mr. Eschliman is entitled to his opinion, his public airing of it compromised the reputation of this newspaper and his ability to lead it.”

“Mr. Eschliman has a right to voice his opinion. And we have a right to select an editor who we believe best represents our company and best serves the interests of our readers,” he added.

As previously reported, a similar situation occurred last year when FOX Sports Southwest commentator Craig James lost his job when officials discovered that he had spoken against same-sex “marriage” during a political debate.

“Same-sex marriage, if someone chooses to do that, that’s them,” he stated at the debate, which had been held the year prior. “And God’s going to judge each one of us in this room for our actions. And in that case right there, they’re going to have to answer to the Lord for their actions.”

“We just asked ourselves how Craig’s statements would play in our human resources department,” an unnamed FOX representative told the Dallas Morning News. “He couldn’t say those things here.”

FOX officials have since denied that James was fired because of his outspoken beliefs, but he has filed a complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission alleging religious discrimination.

Golden State Warriors Coach Fired for His Faith?

Controversy is swirling around the Golden State Warriors' decision to fire coach Mark Jackson, who is an outspoken Christian.
   
Jackson was let go, despite having coached the Warriors to 51 wins and a second-consecutive NBA playoff appearance this season.
   
Now Ann Killion, a sports reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, is asking if Jackson's faith had anything to do with his release.
   
"Everything about Jackson was under scrutiny, which includes his very public persona as a religious man," Killion notes in a May 6 San Francisco Chronicle blog.
   
Killion also pointed out that team owner Rick Welts is openly gay, while Jackson pastors a Christian church and embraces traditional values.

Jackson pastors some church in the Bay Area in California - I can't remember the name of it, but I DO remember looking it up last year(when they mentioned during one of the games how he was a pastor at some church).

If memory serves, it is a BIG megachurch that's VERY New Age. And besides - how is someone who has a high stress 24/7 job(head coach of a pro sports team) find time to pastor a church?

Don't be fooled - Jackson is also part of the world system(he called NBA games on ABC/ESPN prior to being hired in Golden State in 2011).

Here's Jackson's church's web site...

http://www.trueloveworshipcenter.com/

To sum it up in a nutshell - seeker-sensitive, Emergent, New Age, fleshly, occult symbolism, etc all rolled up into one package.

As for Jackson's firing itself - from day 1, all of it was nothing but ONE SPECULATION AFTER ANOTHER. One story said he clashed with the team's front office too many times. Another said he didn't get along with his assistants too well(fired one for spying on his players). This. And the list goes on.

But aside from this - typical in this profession - they fire coaches all the time regardless of performance. And then these fired coaches find employment elsewhere almost immediately.

New York radio hosts fired for transgender remarks

Two upstate New York radio hosts have been fired over their on-air comments about Rochester's decision to cover gender reassignment surgery for city employees.

Entercom Rochester on Thursday announced the firings of Kimberly Ray and Barry Beck from WBZA, calling their comments "hateful" and saying they don't represent the station.

Ray referred to someone seeking gender reassignment surgery as "a nut job." Beck equated the issue to having the city pay for breast enhancement or liposuction for a mentally ill woman.

The discussion on their "Breakfast Buzz" show Wednesday had generated 4,000 signatures by Thursday on a removal petition.

Phone numbers for the two were unlisted and they couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.

Beginning Jan. 1, Rochester will cover surgeries and counseling related to gender reassignment.

The Irony of the New Tolerance: It Doesn't Tolerate Christians

When it comes to same-sex "marriage," our culture just like our president, has definitely evolved. After all, it was only in 2008 that a strong majority in California-yes, California-passed Proposition 8 which defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

But when our president changed his mind a few months before the 2012 election, the cultural floodgates opened, particularly in the American workplace. Later that summer, Chick-fil-A faced angry boycotts when CEO Dan Cathy's views and donations in favor of traditional marriage became public knowledge.

The workplace pressure has only continued. Christian bakers and photographers who do not want to participate in what they consider to be a sin have been fined and faced being shut down. Attempts to protect their religious liberty, such as Arizona's State Bill 1062, have been crushed through threats of economic boycotts and media shaming.

More high-profile voices have also faced this smash-mouth, brass-knuckle treatment. Just weeks ago Brendan Eich, the accomplished founder and CEO of search-engine company Mozilla, was forced to resign when he was "outed" for donating all of $1,000 to Proposition 8 eight years ago.

We've all heard what A&E tried to do to Duck Dynasty when Phil Robertson indelicately expressed his disapproval of the "gay lifestyle." And more recently, the Home and Garden TV network canned the Benham brothers, David and Jason, for their supposed "anti-gay" and "anti-choice" beliefs. Apparently one cannot even host a home-improvement show if one does not also parrot the new sexual orthodoxy.

And then there's the case of Miami Dolphins football player Don Jones. When the Dolphins selected gay athlete and cause celebre Michael Sam in the seventh round of the NFL draft, the celebratory kiss with his boyfriend was shown repeatedly on television. Jones reacted by tweeting "OMG" and "Horrible." The Dolphins immediately suspended him and ordered him to undergo sensitivity training. Sensitivity training? Re-education? What is this, Communist China?

In every case, the message to those who disagree with all this sexual "tolerance" is clear: If you want to keep your job, shut up.

Apparently the sexual left cannot tolerate even the slightest dissent. As Kirsten Powers wrote this week in USA Today, "Welcome to the Dark Ages, Part II. We have slipped into an age of un-enlightenment where you fall in line behind the mob or face the consequences."

It amazes me that the media and the homosexual movement, who fought for so hard for equality, apparently don't see the rich irony of putting the economic screws to alternative voices.

As Powers notes, "They claim to be liberal while behaving as anything but. The touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas. Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to delegitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview. Intolerance is its calling card."

Facing such a McCarthy-esque onslaught, what are we Christians to do? Well, let's keep speaking about marriage and God's plan for human flourishing, despite the obvious and growing threats to our livelihoods. We owe it to our neighbors, and to the Lord.

As we do that we'll need to be the Body of Christ, supporting one another in practical ways against the attacks of an increasingly intolerant culture.

But as maddening and frustrating as this growing intolerance is, we need to speak winsomely whenever possible, making the issue about Him, not about us. We may not win in the court of public opinion, but that's okay. As the Apostle Peter said, "Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation."
