This Gay Pride parade did something so anti-Semitic it will leave you speechless

71

Gay pride parades are hosted in major cities every year to pander to the LGBT movement and demonstrate how tolerant and “woke” they are.

But one gay pride parade just made a huge mistake.

That’s because the “D.C. Dyke March” was caught doing something so anti-Semitic it will make your jaw drop.

LGBT members that attend the parade often find provocative or creative ways to stand out.

One marcher decided to add the Star of David on their rainbow flag.

That’s when all hell broke loose.

The organizers of the parade released a statement that banned the Jewish symbol because it represents “violent nationalism.”

Breitbart reports:

The organizers of Friday’s “D.C. Dyke March,” a parade to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, have banned Gay Pride flags with a Jewish “Star of David” because they say it resembles the Israeli flag and evokes “violent nationalism.”

Writing in the Washington Blade, a Washington, DC, newspaper focusing on the LGBTQ community, Yael Horowitz and Rae Gaines — two self-described “Dykes … [and] self-loving Anti-Zionists” explain their reasons for the ban:

“We are asking people to not bring nationalist symbols because violent nationalism does not fit with our vision of queer liberation. And because we need the march to be a space that is as welcoming to Palestinian Dykes as it is to Jewish Dykes. … The flag is a Star of David placed in the center, superimposed over a rainbow flag, and is almost entirely reminiscent of the Israeli flag, swapping out the blue and white for a rainbow.”

The organizers essentially admitted they do not trust, nor like, the Jewish people and despise the state of Israel.

Israel happens to be one of the only Middle Eastern countries that has legal protections for LGBT members.

Other countries such as Iran or Saudi Arabia have banned homosexuality and will even execute anyone accused of homosexual acts.

But the Left has chosen to ignore those countries to remain politically correct.

The LGBT community is allegedly supposed to be accepting of people with different backgrounds.

But they are making an exception for Jewish LGBT members or those that support Israel.

So far, no one is calling the organizers out for their flagrant declaration of anti-Semitism.

Should the “D.C. Dyke March” apologize for their anti-Semitic actions?

  1. Personally I don’t care if people are gay, lesbian, bi-curious, transgender, queer, or whatever. In fact I have a few adopted daughters/sons that I love to death that is gay. All I want to say is why do these people think they have a right to try to force others to bow down to them. If they want to marry their same sex, that’s fine, but no one has the right to try to make people go against their own beliefs. I mean does it really matter to the happy gay couple if some businesses don’t want to bow down & go against their beliefs. & what the hell is the lgbtq community not getting that they think have to fight for? No one cares about anyone’s lovelife.

      • Common denominator is God. They hate all things God. God loved the Jewish people. God loves Israel. Therefore those things are ‘bad’.

        And everything God says is out of line, they embrace.

        Well, one day they will get their come-uppance. They will realize that God is indeed very real and His Laws make very good sense for our own sakes, but when they cry out desperately for Him, it will be too late.

        • Excellent comment and every word true. Thank you for a voice of reason in all this insanity.
          God loves everyone and He died and rose again to save us all from our sins but we must repent to be forgiven for our sins, all sins, this includes the sin of homosexuality and all of it’s perverted “by-products”.

    • If they want to be gay,that is between them and God. We know what the Bible says about marriage so if they want to ignore what God says then it is their problem when they go up for judgement.

    • They are mental deficient and have been brainwashed by others to think and believe that the LGBT way is the only way to live. They cannot accept others way of life and beliefs. I believe LGBT should be declared Domestic Terrorist and outlawed. They are a danger to society just like Islam is a danger.

    • I’M 79years 0ld and a gay veteran lived my life the way I wanted. Excepted my familys beliefs and the beliefs of others. After my tour of duty worked for 40 years for a Jewish family in the hardware business and doorman in a Gay club on the side for 20 years. The 60’s to the 80’s were rough years for anyone who were gay. Discrimination Bigotry and no equal rights. That ended with the Stonewall Riot., but like anything that is done with good intent some bad results are sure to follow.Even the LGBT HAS RADICAL LEADERS in their desire for acceptance , recognition and human rights have stepped on the rights of others. I follow Christian beliefs and know that through the sacrifice of Christ I have a chance of redemption, I disagree with many things that LGBT stand for, but also disagree with a lot of Christians with their pent up anger and hatred. YE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. My Family pray for me as I pray for them for different results. I don’t ask them to accept gay marriage or transgender it is not in their christian up bringing. toleration is not acceptance lets leave it at that!!! God bless each and everyone of us and Trump in 2020!!!!!!

      • And you can’t force people to accept the gay lifestyle just like we can’t force gays to accept the straight lifestyle.

      • I’m sorry, but that’s not what the bible says. You cannot remain in your sin (homosexuality) and be forgiven. You have to REPENT (change your mind which, in turn changes your actions) to be saved. Real Christians only want to see that happen so you can realize heaven some sweet day. We know we all have a battle to fight against sin while here on earth. We don’t think we are better than you. Maybe more informed than you. That’s all.

      • Chuck…God is very clear that homosexuality is a sin. It states in several places in the Bible that it is a sin. ALL sin must be forgiven to enter into Heaven. I hope that you will repent and be forgiven.

    • These people ?? do this and have always done this because they love getting in the faces of people that don’t believe their life style choice is anything but sexual perversion. Now that they have garnered “special victim status” thanks to the perverted liberals in government that twist everything that was considered bad to be somehow good, they have gone ballistic when other people don’t approve. Do what you want but stop shoving it in the faces of those who don’t like you !!! Where is the law that says everybody HAD TO LIKE WHAT YOU DO OR ELSE?

    • I am definitely not homophobic — my late son was gay and I loved him very much. But I AM tired of constant “gay pride” and in-your-face LGBTQetc. pronouncements, parades, etc. Live your lives as you see fit and leave the rest of us alone, please! Also, at least most anti-Zionists are anti-Semitic, i.e. they are haters, ugly people.

      • They miss a simple concept, they not only want equality which is their right under the constitution but they are pushing their own agenda beyond boundaries that end up on infringing on others rights. I have many gay friends and they have great jobs and are openly gay and are supported by their coworkers. They also do not participate in marches and protests because they feel it does damage to them and brings unwanted attention.

      • I suppose we could blame Holly Wood. Ever since “moving pictures” came to be. Started with a simple heterosexual kiss fading to dark, letting the viewer’s imagination take over. Then things began to erode – Nicole Kidman wiping herself after urinating in Eyes Wide Shut to sex scenes displaying everything but actual penetration. Heterosexual Pride? Let’s have an annual Eros Day Parade. That would drive the Liberals crazy and label us as Racist, Homophobic, etc.
        Then enter movies and TV programs glorifying homosexuality. Affecting me? Nah, I just change the channel or read a book. I don’t care what you do behind closed doors, in a bar I don’t patronize, in the backseat of your car at the drive-in. Live your life, I’ll live mine. Barry Goldwater was right when he said we’re getting the freedom to associate but losing the freedom NOT to associate. You want freedom from religion? Fine, don’t go to church. I want freedom from your lifestyle so I won’t go to your parades or watch your movies or TV programs. I’ve only a few years left so I’m going to live them the way I want, not how you want me to.

        • @old man coyote, Loved your comment. Too bad most of the ppl who think that way are so far up in years. Including myself.

        • I also agree with @old man coyote and Ginger Gee. But coyote’s last sentence should have read as “I’ve only a few years left so I’m going to live them the way I want, not how you want to force me to.

    • @Reader: No, Muslims are Semites, too and they joined Hitler and the leaders of this march are not anti Muslim. @Colleen: I am a Zionist and a Christian. Abraham was promised this land by G*d as an everlasting Covenant. No matter what man says, Israel and Israelis are chosen by God.

      • Paula, you are correct about Muslims joining hitlers regime towards the end of the war…reason being because the nazi’s were running low on men, the nazi’s didn’t like other races among them, but had to accept them. As for your other assertions, well I respect your right to believe as you will. I disagree with some of your belief, but that is my right too.

      • Paula J, you are wrong. They WERE God’s chosen people. He cut them off and grafted on non Jews. Christians became God’s chosen people. There are ethnic Jews and religious Jews. The only SAVED Jews are those that become Christians. The bible says, if you don’t know the Son, you don’t know the Father. They don’t believe Jesus is the Son of God. How could they possibly be God’s chosen people if they deny His Son?

        • Excellent point. I read a book titled the “Hiram Key” decades ago. It was written by two men born into Masonry. They traveled and researched the beginnings of Masonry and it’s rituals for their own knowledge. Along the way they discovered many things about the many “early religions” of the area; the different tribes and movements and beliefs of all of them. It was in that book that I learned more about Judaism and early Christians before they were called that. It was there that I found out about the true story of the life of Moses. He was not the great and loving man we have been told. But that does not mean it should reflect badly on all Jews. Check it out for yourself.

  2. Dykes better stay away from Islamic Muslim run counties because their favorite sport is tossing homosexuals off of tall buildings. You wan’t be in Israel as far as I know.

    • @david Jews, muslim or any schwatzers in general, are the LAST ppl who should ever vote dem. But 90% of both groups have been brainwashed. Sad. When everyone has the same opinion, it’s time to ask questions.

  3. What I would be concerned about if I were staging the parade is the fact that the Star of David would put the group even more in the cross hairs of neo nazi white supremacist groups than they already are.

  4. This entire gay stuff makes me sick. I’m tired of them saying I have to accept their lifestyle. I don’t run around talking about my sexual preferences and I don’t want to hear theirs. They are overbearing and obnoxious. Just do you thing and quite blasting it to the world.

  5. I agree with most of these comments. The bigger picture however is that the gay community is being used to further the agenda of the global elitists, New World Order money changers. Once their usefulness is over they will be slaughtered like Hitler did to the Brown Shirts. Study history and you will see the future. May the Lord have mercy.

  6. Well,….it just seems wrong, and yes I do think people have a right to do whatever they want to do.
    Until it’s pushed down our throats.
    Then it becomes a issue.
    Me personally, I think these people suffer a mental condition that left untreated, can cause more serious issues in the long run.
    I am aware that most would not agree with me, but the facts are out there, and are available for anyone to see.

    • I would hope they would come to their senses before that. Hell is total separation from the G*d who is for now omnipresent. None of us can even fathom what it will be like without His presence. Even Atheists share the blessings God bestows upon us all. The rain and the sun.

  7. I agree with Ben Shapiro…put in my own words…they are crazy. What sex they are born as, they will die as…dna does not change. When dna changes, I will accept…until then, crazy.

  8. Hate to say it but I think they just didnt want any politics brought into the parade but didnt do it just right. Gays are supposed to accept everybody regardless of beliefs and should not have said anything because there is always people out there to throw a spin on it. I can care less if people are gay or not but am really tired of them throwing it into everyones faces. Like the moron running for president cannot have a speech without throwing a liplock on his husband. He needs to remember that kids watch tv too and we do not see other people throwing liplocks on their husbands or wives. A quick kiss will do.

    • The only one I can remember is when Al Gore grabbed Tipper and lip-locked on her. After he lost, he dumped her. Real sincere!

  9. “One marcher decided to add the Star of David on their rainbow flag.”

    Hints, silly one:
    It is possible to be both Jewish and gay.
    It is possible to take pride in being both.
    It is possible to demonstrate that pride by carrying a flag that unites the two.
    It is possible that you have ZERO knowledge of our Constitution, especially its first Amendment.
    It is possible that you fell you have scored a double by expressing your hatred of both Jews and gays in your post.

  10. Surprised that Senator Harris did not spread her legs at this pride parade as that is how she accomplished rising from California AG to the American Senate. The “Resist” Democratic Party is proving that they are making their followers drink the KOOL-AID, just like Jim Jones convinced 918 to commit suicide in 1978 in Jonestown.
    Harris does not qualify for the presidency as she is NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN…when she was born in Oakland, California her parents were still immigrants who had not qualified for citizenship. Let us also take a serious look at what the New York Times wrote about her in 2015…The Times referred to Harris as a “top cop” AG who, according to her critics, “failed to take on prosecutorial misconduct.” The profile noted in 2015 her office was called out for “defending convictions obtained by local prosecutors who inserted false confessions into the transcripts of police interrogations, lied under oath, and withheld crucial evidence from the defense.” My, my, my Ms. Harris, aren’t you a pillar of law and order? Does this give you a clue why she denied “Due Process” to Judge Kavanaugh and why she stormed out of that hearing to waiting CNN camera and within 30 minutes used the hearing as a fundraiser on her website? Harris lied in her opening announcement including lying about her education in Oakland…her parents divorced when Harris was 2 years-old, her mother took Kamala and her sister to Canada where she attended grade school and high school before returning 18 years later to attend an American college…apparently Harris is just like Obama… hide, lie, obstruct and seal your historical records to keep the voters blind and stupid about your real agenda…her mother obviously taught Harris the tricks of the prostitution trade! S.F Mayor Willie Brown was 32 years her senior…she destroyed his marriage and earned $400,000 a year in the process…Harris will insist it’s all about jobs, sure it is, BLOW JOBS AND HAND JOBS…

  11. Paula, you are correct about Muslims joining hitlers regime towards the end of the war…reason being because the nazi’s were running low on men, the nazi’s didn’t like other races among them, but had to accept them. As for your other assertions, well I respect your right to believe as you will. I disagree with some of your belief, but that is my right too.

    • So incredibly true. The Nuremburg Act of 1934 stripped the Jews of their rights, their jobs, their nation. Some of the things the left is espousing is exactly the same thing. If the globalists ever take control, it will be the camps for homosexuals, conservatives, Christians, anyone who resists the government.
      In the early 1940’s there was an article in Life Magazine about the One World Government. George Bernard Shaw, Herbert G Wells and many others espoused that movement. One thing I have never forgotten was George Bernard Shaw stating “that those who opposed the OWG would have to be humanely silenced”. I have never for gotten that after over 70 years. How does one kill someone humanely?
      I collected Life Magazines and would read then over and over and remember them. The threat we face is from those who are morons believing in OWG and open borders.

      • Actually, I am all for a OWG…with JESUS at its head, and that WILL come to pass. All who have rejected Jesus will be gone.

        • Same here, bj. That day is coming and it won’t be very long. I believe we are living in the end of the end times.

  12. A homosexual flag, and a “star of david” flag?? Two wrongs don’t make a right. How about a USA flag with a Christian Cross!!!

  13. Pro-life Republicans are the anti-semites, stereotyping, lumping people into groups, etc. They seem to think vegetarianism is associated solely with the Hare Krishnas. They seem to think if they grasp at straws to label the Hare Krishnas as “Jews” (e.g., citing Srila Prabhupada’s use of the word “dog” to describe anyone not on the platform of four regulative principles and chanting sixteen rounds every day, when he would make use of half a dozen different animal words to describe sinners — dogs, hogs, crows, cows, camels, asses, etc. — and with reincarnation in mind, which is quite different from the Judaic use of the word, although in II Peter 2:12, St. Peter compares sinners to irrational brute beasts)…

    …then they think they’ve discredited vegetarianism as someone else’s “religious belief” which they think doesn’t apply to them, forgetting a lot of people look at abortion that way, too! (I notice they’re not concerned with whether Dr. Willke “worked” for his salvation, etc., when he makes his case for the personhood of the unborn!)

    If they *really* want to sweep a serious moral issue (the ethical treatment of animals, which mankind has grappled with from Pythagoras to PETA) under the rug as someone else’s “religious belief,” I must point out in past decades, the stereotype of “religious vegetarians” was that they’re all followers of the ancient eastern reincarnationist religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, believing in rebirth in lower species as a punishment for sinning, believing you might be reincarnated as a cow in your next life if you’re not careful, Hinduism and her sacred cows, a belief in karma and reincarnation as the basis for the kinship of all life rather than, say, Darwinian evolution, etc.

    If they were to invoke that kind of a stereotype, we would be sitting ducks. But they seem to have an irrational hatred of Jews, and label us “Jews” even when I show time and again how way off base that is! Jews and Muslims don’t worship images, nor believe in the incarnations of God, nor worship a plural Godhead similar to that of Trinitarian Christianity, nor worship other human beings (saints and spiritual masters in discipline succession, etc.).

    Even in the West, before the British Vegetarian Society was founded in the middle of the 19th century and the word “vegetarian” was first coined, vegetarians were referred to as “Pythagoreans.” Along the lines of the Hindu belief in different yugas or ages going back millions of years, the ancient Greeks similarly believed in ages of gold, silver, iron, etc., believed that in past ages, civilizations were more enlightened, the gods would visit the earth, mate with earthly women, giving rise to heroic and noble children, etc.

    Pythagoras taught karma and reincarnation. It is said Pythagoras once stopped a man from beating a dog, because in the dog’s yelping he recognized the voice of an old friend. Pythagoras taught his followers not to kill even a flea, especially in a temple, and Srila Prabhupada similarly said when you kill any living entity, even an ant, you are interfering with its spiritual progress towards eventually receiving a human body and the opportunity to escape the cycle of repeated birth and death. Pythagoras abhorred animal sacrifice and wine, too.

    The Pythagoreans recognized a pantheon of demigods as well as a Supreme Being, with the sun-god being especially prominent. Lord Krishna spoke Bhagavad-gita to the sun-god millions of years before He spoke it to His disciple Arjuna in 3138 BC. The Pythagoreans similarly contributed to medical ethics through the Oath of Hippocrates.

    The Oath reads: “I swear by Apollo Physician, by Asclepius… I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but never with a view to injury and wrong-doing. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly, I will not give to a woman a pessary to cause abortion… Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick, and I will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, especially from abusing the bodies of man or woman, bond or free.”

    During the abortion debate on USENET in 1986, pro-choicers argued the reference to abortion in the Oath was not written with respect for life, but intended to prevent “back-alley” abortions. The United States Supreme Court, however, clearly saw the Oath as pro-life in Roe v. Wade, downgrading the historical influence of the Oath of Hippocrates, by noting it “echoes Pythagorean doctrines,” and the Pythagoreans were a minority religion in ancient Greece.

    The philosopher Empodocles (5th century BC) wrote that the ancients were much more fortunate than modern man because they were vegetarian and there was neither animal sacrifices nor war. He described humanity in previous ages using statues, pictures, perfumes and honey in their worship. They did not offer animals, Empodocles maintained, because to kill an animal for sacrifice or food is the greatest moral wrong. Empodocles described these ancient races as gentle to animals and birds as well as to each other.

    Empodocles was greatly influenced by Pythagorean doctrine. He believed in the transmigration of souls. Because of reincarnation and the equality of all living beings, Empodocles felt meat-eating was comparable to cannibalism. “Will ye not cease from this great din of slaughter?” he once wrote. “Will ye not see, unthinking as ye are, how ye rend one another unbeknoweth?”

    Srila Prabhupada said the ancient civilizations millions of years ago were ruled by “rajarshis” or saintly kings. Plato also developed a theory that it would not be possible to have a just and good society until kings were philosophers or until philosophers became kings. In this way, the leaders would have a true understanding of justice and virtue, and would be able to rule properly for the benefit of all the citizens. According to Plato, the ideal society consists of three classes of men: the governing class, the military class, and the mercantile class. Perhaps because he lived in a slave state, Plato failed to recognize laborers as a fourth, or working class. However, he taught that people fall into different classes according to their talents and abilities, rather than as a result of their birth. Plato taught further that women are recognized as equals with men in the ideal society, and may also become rulers, soldiers, or merchants.

    Platonic philosophy is nearly Vedic! Hindu historian A. Kalyanaraman believes Plato failed to recognize laborers as a fourth, or working class, since he lived in a slave state. Kalyanaraman supports this observation by citing evidence from the principle Hindu scriptures, known as the Vedas, as well as the testimony of Megasthenes, who journeyed from the Greco-Roman world to India during the 3rd century BC. Kalyanaraman finds a great deal of political freedom and equality in ancient India, where social mobility was acknowledged. The Vedas describe numerous saints and sages who were of low birth, but were considered by their virtue to have been raised to the highest status. The Greek Megasthenes observed: “The law ordains that none among them under any circumstances be a slave; enjoying freedom, they shall expect the equal right to it which others possess… All Indians are free and not one of them is a slave. The Indians do not use even aliens as slaves; much less a countryman of their own.”

    The earliest moral and legal codes (Dharma-sastras and Niti-sastras) originated in India, as did the earliest representative institutions (Sabha and Parishad). A modern Western text, India: Yesterday and Today, similarly says, “the four orders… of Hindu society… were classes in the Western sense rather than castes in the Indian manner.”

    Plato’s writings contain frequent references to reincarnation. The souls of animals and the souls of men are taught to be of equal worth. This is made clear in the story of Er. (Republic 614-621) In this story, souls with human bodies become animals in their next life, while souls clothed in animal bodies become human. Plato presented detailed accounts of reincarnation in many of his other writings. (Phaedrus 248c; Phaedo 81-83, 85a; Meno 81b; Timaeus 90e-91c, etc.)

    According to Plato, pure souls have fallen from the plane of absolute reality because of sensual desire, and have taken on physical bodies. First, the fallen souls are embodied in human forms. Of these, the highest is that of the philosopher, who delights in higher knowledge, and lives on the level of the mind, rather than the body. As long as he remains caught up in the heavenly spheres, he returns to eternal life and existence. But if he becomes entangled in carnal desires, he will descend into the animal kingdom.

    Plato believed gluttons and drunkards could easily become asses in future lifetimes, cruel and violent people may take birth as hawks or wolves, and blind followers of social convention may be reborn as bees or ants. Eventually, the soul will again receive another human body, and with it another opportunity to seek first the spiritual kingdom, righteousness, and eternal life.

    Plato wrote about ethics, politics, justice, knowledge, virtue, the soul, rebirth, judgment, heaven, hell, monastic living, and a transcendent realm of goodness. The early church historian Eusebius observed: “Plato, more than anyone else, shared in the philosophy of Pythagoras.” Early church father Justin Martyr is known to have said repeatedly that Plato must have been versed in Christian prophecy.

    Again, if the other side were to invoke that kind of a stereotype, we would be sitting ducks. But they seem to have an irrational hatred of Jews, and label us “Jews” even when I show time and again how way off base that is! Jews and Muslims don’t worship images, nor believe in the incarnations of God, nor worship a plural Godhead similar to that of Trinitarian Christianity, nor worship other human beings (saints and spiritual masters in discipline succession, etc.).

  14. Again, pro-life Republicans are the anti-semites. Since the Christians are scared of “cults” or scared of being “converted” to another religion, why are they infiltrating and harassing Hare Krishnas? If they’re really terrified (or merely mildly amused) at the idea of a vegetarian or vegan future and want “Sleeper” over “Star Trek: The Next Generation” why are they ignoring secular abolitionist organizations like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) ? Organizations like PETA have far greater influence in mainstream secular American society than we do!

    Case in point: when there was public outcry over Sarah Palin’s handicapped six-year-old son stepping on the family dog, Sarah Palin responded with a snide comment about PETA activists sitting in offices with leather chairs protesting animal cruelty. She did NOT debate whether Hare Krishnas “work” for salvation, worship in temples or churches, refer to sinners as “dogs” or with half a dozen different animal words and with reincarnation in mind, are “really nice,” etc.

    And Sarah Palin isn’t the brightest bulb in the Republican Party. George W. Bush even thought she was a poor choice for a running mate!

    I told my friend John Antypas in 1986 that vegetarians are like pacifists: just as there have been persons throughout history morally opposed to war, militarism, bloodshed, etc., so there have been vegetarians, morally opposed to killing animals.

    Like pacifists and/or pro-lifers, vegetarianism, in itself, is merely an *ethic* and not a religion…

    …though, like the pro-life ethic, it has served as the basis for entire religious traditions…

    Buddhism, Jainism, Pythagoreanism, and possibly early Christianity all immediately come to mind.

    In the (updated) 1986 edition of A Vegetarian Sourcebook, Keith Akers observes:

    “But many others, both orthodox and heterodox, testified to the vegetarian origins of Christianity. Both Athanasius and his opponent Arius were strict vegetarians. Many early church fathers were vegetarian, including Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian, Heironymus, Boniface, and John Chrysostom.

    “Many of the monasteries both in ancient times and at the present day practiced vegetarianism… The requirement to be vegetarian has been diluted considerably since the earliest days, but the practice of vegetarianism was continued by many saints, monks, and laymen. Vegetarianism is at the heart of Christianity.”

    St. Augustine, (354-430 AD), Bishop of Hippo in Africa, called attention to the abstinence of the Anchorites who “not only abstain from flesh and wine, but also from other viands… which flatter taste,” He also quoted from the apostle Paul in I Corinthians 8:8 and also Romans 14:21 “that it is good never to eat meat and drink wine when by so doing we scandalize our brothers.”

    St. Jerome was responsible for the Vulgate, or Latin version of the Bible, still in use today. St. Jerome felt a vegetarian diet was best for those devoted to the pursuit of wisdom. He once wrote that he was not a follower of Pythagoras or Empodocles “who do not eat any living creature,” but concluded, “And so I too say to you: if you wish to be perfect, it is good not to drink wine and eat flesh.”

    In his 1999 book, Is God A Vegetarian?, Baptist theologian Dr. Richard Alan Young acknowledges that many vegetarians and animal activists are cynical about Paul, seeing him as anti-vegetarian. Dr. Young tries to show that Paul can be interpreted not as an obstacle to animal rights, but as a liberator. Unfortunately, all he shows is that Paul was pro-choice!

    How many Christian churches, businesses, hotels, restaurants, etc., in the spirit of Romans 14, automatically accommodate vegetarians and vegans? Like accommodating nonsmokers and nondrinkers?

    There are Christian fraternities and Christian weddings where no alcohol is served, and Christian bumper stickers saying, “It’s okay not to drink.”

    What about doing likewise with meat and all animal products?

    Especially if Christians claim to “cover” or “do unto others…” ?

    Many conservative Christians don’t want animal activists to educate and encourage others into vegetarianism…

    For example, they don’t want animal activists pointing out to pro-lifers the direct relevance of animal rights to human rights issues like racism and abortion, the human rights and social justice arguments in favor of vegetarianism (while humans are starving, half the world’s grain is fed to livestock!), etc.

    Aren’t feeding the hungry; treating the body as a temple of God which should not be defiled nor dishonored through hormones, pesticides, poisons and other unhealthy toxins and unhealthy food in general; treating animals humanely, and compassionate stewardship over the environment all biblical issues? The editors of the Green Bible, which highlights environmentally-friendly biblical passages might think so.

    Pro-lifers show greater hostility when told not to kill animals than pro-choicers show when told not to kill the unborn. That kind of response is completely irrational!

    As an ethic, vegetarianism has attracted some of the greatest minds in history:

    Leonardo Da Vinci, Count Leo Tolstoy, Mohandas Gandhi, George Bernard Shaw, Susan B. Anthony, Percy Shelley, Rosa Parks, etc.

    Some Christians seem to think vegetarianism is associated solely with the Hare Krishnas, so they think if they prove Krishna Consciousness to be “really nice”…

    (I notice they can’t say “really Jewish” because that would sound stupid: Jews and Muslims don’t worship images; Jews and Muslims don’t believe in the incarnations of God; Jews and Muslims don’t worship a plural Godhead like that of Trinitarian Christianity; Jews and Muslims don’t worship other human beings [saints and spiritual masters in disciplic succession]…)

    …then they think they’ve somehow “discredited” vegetarianism as someone else’s “religious belief” which they think doesn’t apply to them, rather than seeing animal rights as a secular and nonsectarian civil rights issue which applies to *everyone* including atheists and agnostics. Animal rights. The civil rights movement of the 21st century, as law professor Gary Francione put it.

    (The irony is a lot of liberals see abortion as sectarian, too!)

    Again, Sarah Palin might not be the brightest bulb in the Republican Party, but she was smart enough to respond to PETA, rather than dismiss animal rights as someone else’s “religious belief” and harass religious minorities.

    Do PETA activists sit in leather chairs in plush offices? I doubt it. Animal activists have to be consistently nonviolent, otherwise they’re accused of being hypocrites. In 1986, John Antypas commented that the Greenpeace activists are hypocrites if they eat meat. In a Seinfeld episode from the early ’90s, Elaine sees a woman at a dinner party wearing a fur coat and calls her on it. The woman responds, “Excuse me, but are you vegetarian?” The implication being that it’s hypocritical to protest fur while eating meat. At anti-fur demonstrations, we encounter this all the time: passerby asking, “What about your shoes?” (i.e., do you wear leather?)

  15. What the Dyke March did is deplorable and it’s in the name of intersectionality! Ergo, this proves my point that AOC and the anti-Israel libtard, leftist extremists are automatic homosexuals and lesbians!

  16. I’ve had enough of these militant Sodomites. It’s time to forcefully shove them back into the closet.
    These predators are indoctrinating our kids and destroying their souls.

    • Toxic…You are right. But Revelation tells us that satan will rule for a time. It is becoming ever more apparent that he is gaining a bigger foothold every day. He will do all he can to lead us away from God and he is succeeding with homosexuals.

  17. What this really shows is that the LBGTQ community is essentially ignorant about the things that most affect them. They are militant, violent and aggressive in this country because it is safe for them to do so. They can go to Israel and do the same. They can’t go anywhere else in the Middle East, though. Since you can’t learn this in school, college or university anymore, google gay rights in Islamic countries and educate yourselves.

  18. Being gay is an abomination to God; which means He loves the person, but hates the sin. We all know what Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman, it is an abomination”; but it is also in the New Testament also in these verses: Romans 1:18-32; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Jude verse 7.

    • Karen, you are right. God is very clear that it is an abomination. But those who have rejected God and His Word will tell you that it is normal. They will do all they can to force their perversion on us. But homosexuality is not only against God, but also a freak of nature. Nature also rejects homosexuality, as the purpose of nature is procreation. Any way you look at it, homosexuality is WRONG.

      • And it is those people that God will turn over to a reprobate mind. I totally agree with you bj. God bless you and keep you in His care.

  19. It’s a culture problem . . . not a poor choice of words. Having an organization “apologize” for their comments, does NOTHING ! Coerced apologies does nothing for the offended and is not a heart-changer for the offender ! They believe Israel and the representation of their flag as NATIONALIST VIOLENCE is a sign of self-centered, self-serving philosophy. ALL coddled groups are given free-license to offend . . . because they know that their views, if challenged, would be a violation of political correctness. This is how the Left works . . . whine . . . complain . . . call out anyone who does not revel in their cause or lifestyle . . . public lambasting is sure to follow ! As for me . . . I’m well on my way to becoming public enemy #1 ! These comments are not helping !

  20. I say pack up the parade and all it’s supporters and give them a one-way ticket to Saudi Arabia or Iran. That would fix two problems at once…

  21. Why oh why do most Jewish folks vote Democrat?? It is an age-old thing I have been trying to get an answer flor for many years!! They are slitting their own collective throats!!!!

  22. i’ve gotten to the point where i do NOT like gays AT ALL anymore. I used to not care. Their politics have now made me hate them. to hell with all of them abnormal F’k’s.

  23. Gay conservative Yianpoulous was banned by Facebook and Z-EU-book vows to ban anyone who mentions his name three times. He is hated for presenting satire of sharia islamists. Can never remember exact spelling of his name.
