I have surveyed today’s moral landscape to learn that morality is like a fast-food menu and about as relevant. If I don’t like what they’re serving at Popeyes I can always go to Krispy Krunchy. And, if I don’t feel like doing what was morally right yesterday I can just make it morally wrong today and KABLOWIE! all is forgiven. Unless you’re the person who thought morality was enduring, gifted to generation after generation, by the hand of God.
Ha! I should have checked with GLAAD before making such a silly statement. Gays and Lesbians Allied Against Defamation, it seems are only against the defamation of homosexuals. How else to explain GLAAD’s defamatory charge of “vile and extreme…views” hurled at Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for condemning homosexuality as a sin when Robertson is simply expressing the teachings of his faith. Essentially, God is being told to shut up.
Oh wait, this faith doesn’t belong in Robertson’s heart because, according to GLAAD, the sin of homosexuality is not what “true Christians believe.” Oh really, what then, does a “true Christian believe”, IN homosexuality? IN coveting another man’s “husband”? IN “honor[ing] thy Mother and [mother]?” Are you going to build a “faith” around those “beliefs?”
The faith GLAAD is defaming is pretty clear about believing in an omnipotent “maker of all things”; in “one baptism for remission of sins” and the “life of the world to come.” Pray-tell just how that life comes about when the species has but one gender to breed?
Like Phil Robertson, my faith instructs me to treat all humans with charity and humility and that includes homosexuals, Robertson said as much. But that will not appease those who create their own religions at will and are intolerant of “sinners” who do not convert.

and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, and born of the Father before all ages.
(God of God) light of light, true God of true God. Begotten not made, consubstantial to the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men and
for our salvation came down from heaven. And was incarnate of the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary and was made man; was crucified also for us
under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried; and the third day rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand
of the Father, and shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead, of whose Kingdom there shall be no end. And (I believe) in the Holy
Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceeds from the Father (and the Son), who together with the Father and the Son is to be adored and glorified,
who spoke by the Prophets. And one holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. We confess (I confess) one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for
(I look for) the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.”
