The tyranny of a very small but very powerful minority

The tyranny of a very small but very powerful minority

Some people actually believe that the majority rule. Nope. Not in America. Not anymore.

The Census shows that at present, the United States is 77.7% white and that figure includes white Hispanics. Without them, it's approximately 62%. All Hispanics number 17% and blacks around 13%. Although many Americans polled believe that the gay community is around 20%, the actual number is 1.6 % and yet the LGBT community wields enormous influence over our culture and has succeeded in tearing down traditional mores of the nation and the world. Why? The answer is that this demographic is extremely wealthy and has influence over many spheres in government, entertainment, the media and industry.

Last week's Supreme Court decision recognizing gay marriage using the same 14th Amendment argument that brought us abortion on demand has put marriage on the brink of irrelevance. Can bans against polygamy and other marriage restrictions even exist after this decision of judicial activism?

And the dominoes continue to fall. Cambridge University has altered its 500 year-old dress policy to allow men to wear dresses instead of suits thanks to a lawsuit by an American transgender student.

Forbes magazine had a recent article listing ten LGBT billionaires and there are actually probably more that haven't yet come out of the closet. Apple's CEO, Tim Cook made a temporary splash when he came out as gay. Billionaire real estate mogul Jennifer Pritzger, born James Pritzger, is a transgender head of a powerful hotel family.

Every form of entertainment must include some deference to the LGBT protocol and this includes children's programs and films. Heather has Two Mommies and The King and the King are just two of the latest gay-themed books geared to instill tolerance in the young. Public schools are adding sex education to kindergarten classes that are wholly inappropriate for children that age and yet they still can't teach students to read.


After the SCOTUS ruling, President Obama tweeted #LoveWins After Supreme Court Redefines Marriage. His remark is reiterating the tactic used by the LGBT advocates in persuading the public that this is about love. The movement has repeatedly co-opted the civil rights movement by comparing gay rights to laws previously banning marriage between blacks and white. But the issue has nothing to do with love because there is nothing morally wrong about loving anyone. It's about having sex with them since marriage is sacramentally instituted for the preservation of society and human existence.

But the fact remains that the issue of gay rights since the sixties has been brilliantly marketed to seduce the public while its underlying agenda is cloaked by emotional detritus. After the state of Iowa approved gay marriage, we were presented with the wedding of two nonagenarians celebrating after 72 years together. So two women in love are finally married and it's an awwww moment. Another one now in Texas-two octogenarian men can kiss and wed in Dallas. Wahoo! Love conquers all but only if you don't mention sex.

In the past, several millionaire gay couples have sued to make churches in the U.K. perform the weddings. I assume attempts will be made to force the arch enemy of gay rights-the Catholic Church, to do the same. Although it is unclear if the court's ruling applies only to civil marriages, President Obama has made it very clear that religion should not interfere with the constitutional rights of gays to marry. At a press conference where he crowed about the decision, Obama implied that those who disagree with the idea of gay marriage based, for example, on their religious views, must change to be more like progressives who accept gay marriage.

While Pope Francis has been criticized for being everything from a commie to a liberal idiot, he is in fact, only infallible in areas of faith and morals. He has made it very clear where he stands on gay marriage. In Manila, he warned the crowd about forces to upend the sacrament of marriage. "The family is also threatened by growing efforts on the part of some to redefine the very institution of marriage," the pope said Jan. 16, hours after warning that Philippine society was "tempted by confusing presentations of sexuality, marriage and the family."

"As you know, these realities are increasingly under attack from powerful forces which threaten to disfigure G0D's plan for creation and betray the very values which have inspired and shaped all that is best in your culture," he said.

The powerful LGBT community has been very intolerant of any free expression against gay marriage. Just as it has become racist to criticize Obama, one is automatically a bigot and homophobe if one dares to object to gay marriage. The popular browser Mozilla dumped its CEO Brendan Elch after learning he supported PROP 8 opposing gay marriage. I no longer use this browser.

The Daily Caller reported one editorial: "As a result of Friday's ruling, PennLive/The Patriot-News will no longer accept, nor will it print, op-Eds and letters to the editor in opposition to same-sex marriage," they declared." Welcome to 1984.

Comedian Billy Crystal had to clarify his remarks about gay sex scenes; "I've seen some stuff recently on TV in different kinds of shows where the language or the explicit sex is really you know, sometimes I get it, and sometimes I just feel like, 'Ah, that's too much for me.' This is ironic since Crystal was the first one to portray an openly gay character on television in the sitcom 'Soap.' Netflix introduced what I thought was an original Syfi series, 'Sense 8' and within a few minutes I had to watch a sex scene with two lesbians using a dildo. No thanks.

The LGBT community is very litigious and has been suing small businesses that refuse gay marriage events because of religious objections. They can afford to litigate because they have very large pocketbooks and do not care abut the devastating legal costs that overwhelm struggling operations trying to stay in business.

Like global warming and Obamacare, one of the biggest cons perpetrated on us may be that homophobia is epidemic. Most Americans don't care about anybody's sex life nor are most racist. Nevertheless, the lies rule but do a little digging on hate stories and you'll learn the truth. Poster boy of gay hate crime, Matthew Shepard, was not crucified because he was gay. he died in a meth drug deal gone bad yet that's not how his death was depicted in the TV movie. It's all about marketing and it is working big time.

I bear no animus towards homosexuals as I have had many close friends and relatives who were gay. Most of them have died because their liberation has introduced the scourge of AIDS on the world. It has been suggested that had LGBT advocates like Larry Kramer not fought so hard to prevent AIDS from being designated a notifiable std, like syphilis, perhaps this horrible disease would not have reached epidemic levels.

While whites may still be a nominal majority, they now bear the dismissive stigma of 'white privilege.' A former co-worker of my husband told him he was nervous about the road trip he was taking with his family to the Grand Canyon. As a black man married to a white woman he wasn't sure what he would encounter. When he returned he said, "After you leave New Jersey, everyone is white. They're doing the jobs you only see here done by blacks and everybody was so nice."

While those gay billionaires are also white, their 'gay privilege' has the endorsement and support of the mainstream media and this administration. The new majority is now determined by wealth not numbers and that is not a good thing for this country if it destroys our individual freedom of expression.
