The Family Research Council Shooting and a Rant on Hypocrisy

I try to avoid politically-oriented rants whenever possible. But the recent shooting of a guard at the Family Research Council has me riled – not at the shooter, who simply took the campaign against “hatred” to its logical conclusion from a secular perspective, fighting fire with fire. The architects of the shooting – the heads of the same-sex marriage lobby – deserve to be called out for their hypocrisy.
The heads of the pro-gay marriage movement has waged a vicious “hate” campaign against anyone that dares to oppose their position. They claim that supporters of true marriage are responsible for violence, bullying, and a host of other social evils. They complain incessantly about homophobia and oppression and intolerance and a host of other politically correct evils.
And now one of their followers tries to break the chains of this (phantom) oppression by trying to strike a blow against a “hate group,” and they decry the violence. Not buying it.
The architects of chaos merely reaped what they sowed. From Dan Savage spewing vitriol to loony mayors screaming about “hate chicken,” the generals of the same-sex marriage movement created an atmosphere of fear and terror which caused one of their followers to snap.
I’d like to believe this incident will cool down the overheated rhetoric and the talk of “hatred.” But I’m not very hopeful. Within a week (if not before), this incident will be buried, and the rhetoric of hatred will continue. And the hypocrisy of accusations of conservative groups “spreading hatred” will endure.
Speaking of hypocrisy, supporters of same-sex marriage claim that advocates of a Judeo-Christian view of marriage are hypocrites. They are absolutely right. It is indeed hypocritical for people claiming to defend traditional marriage to get divorced, commit adultery, and use contraception. This is NOT a reason to purge the true definition of marriage, but rather a wake-up call for married individuals to live faithful lives.
But the supporters of gay marriage should acknowledge their own hypocrisy. Their tolerance only extends to their own opinions; their love only for those they support. They claim to decry hatred, but their hatred of their opponents is palpable.

  1. Another "Washington Deceased" Shooting

    Re the Family Research Council shooting, it looks like Luke 17's two predicted "days" are becoming one "perviolent" day - and that the misguided critics of FRC don't NoahLot ! (Everyone should Google "The Anti-Chick-fil-A Jihad" and "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right.")
