“The gay agenda” is a phrase that implies a uniform social and political agenda shared by all homosexuals. It also implies there is something inherently wrong in having an agenda.

Both points are untrue.

There is great diversity among homosexuals, including political and social diversity. For that reason, no one agenda could be, nor is it, shared by all homosexuals, although it is fair to say there are some past goals — same-sex marriage, acceptance of gays in the military and so on — that have been common to the political gay rights movement, even if they are not shared by all homosexual people.

However, to promote the idea that the gay community is a united front in terms of gay rights or even the word “gay” to denote homosexual practice is inaccurate and an illusion.

Around the world, there is great, great diversity within gay communities when it comes to the promotion of gay rights and homosexual practice.

Homosexuals, or anyone else for that matter, do not have the right to have no one disagree with them on the morality of homosexuality. Nor do they have the right to be free from “attitudinal discrimination” regarding their sexual orientation. But neither does anyone else have such a right.

Indeed, every citizen has a right to his or her own biases and prejudices, as long as they do not impinge upon the fundamental rights of another person or class. This is what it means to live in a society in which the freedoms of speech, religion (and belief) and privacy are guaranteed. Homosexuals have the right, as do others, to believe that homosexual behavior should be accepted as normal.

Simply put, legislators have been telling California Christians, (California Christian leadership, in particular) for some time now to ignore, and dismiss The Lordship of Christ and The Authority of Scripture, disregard, be disobedient to the Lord’s will, reject the testimonies of thousands of ex-gays and bow to political correctness regarding ‘gay’ and related issues.

They do not have the right to demand everyone agree with them.

Be careful to separate issues from the person or people.
