“The gibberish of diversity, equality, tolerance, pluralism or multiculturalism has rendered you irrelevant”

I saw this comment on Bagley’s latest and I just had to post it.  If you live in Utah, this is par for the course.  But for our wider audience (the rest of the modern world), this is REAL!

Yep, its true, there are very serious, not legally insane people who really DO say AND BELIEVE this:

etb says:
In a society that has abolished all boundaries, the only boundary left is to abolish that society.

That’s the endgame in this “race to the bottom” scenario. Your allegiance to “moral relativism” under the guise of “honoring” the gibberish of diversity, equality, tolerance, pluralism or multiculturalism has rendered you irrelevant in any discussion about the state of the culture.

You are the fruit of a mass media educated population. All the self-esteem in the world, but you can’t think, or argue, your way out of a wet paper-bag. You are the type of people who have been groomed to welcome the economic and cultural calamities all around us. Your life mantra hasn’t changed since the 60s, if it feels good…do it!

These latest rounds of various court rulings are more of the circus of the absurd, only important in chronicling the speed of the decline and debauchery of reason. That being said, I’ve done what I can do. I’m going out dancing, not sitting in a cave. You enjoy the affects of the blue pill as long as the ride lasts.

Defenders of Marriage

h/t HuffPost

If you love, where you love, what equipment you might use… Actually, the equipment is somebody’s business. And yet, the “Traditional Values” people are all upset over homosexuality in the movies, in the workplace, in the Boy Scouts. And they should just realize that homosexuality in the Boy Scouts is a tradition. And now that the California State Supreme Court has upheld Prop 8, it’s official: San Francisco is moving to Iowa.

Why CA Proposition 8 Must Be and Will Be Overturned

From Jerry Brown, California State Attorney General

The California Supreme Court finds itself center stage tomorrow when it will hear oral arguments on whether it should uphold Proposition 8’s ban on same-sex marriage.

The case touches the heart of our democracy and poses a profound question: can a bare majority of voters strip away an inalienable right through the initiative process? If so, what possible meaning does the word inalienable have?

The state faced a dilemma like this before. In 1964, 65 percent of California voters approved Proposition 14, which would have legalized racial discrimination in the selling or renting of housing. Both the California and U.S. Supreme Courts struck down this proposition, concluding that it amounted to an unconstitutional denial of rights. read on…

The religious right must make a choice; to sacrifice the very principles insures them their freedom to worship in favor of making some sort of point about their interpretation of doctrine OR to hold inalienable rights of all humans about institutionalized, politicized bigotry.

A fine 2008 Chateau Conservatrix

this whine is defined by a fine bouquet of self victimization, blame and a stunning lack of realization that Mormons in California have folded like a cheap tent whenever challenged about their political activities

How could I not hop (Here’s looking at you Australia) on the animal label trend?

Off with their heads (more on Prop 8 and the Mormon church)

Channel 4 reports that a Nebraska man faces possible excommunication from the LDS Church for supporting same sex marriage.

Let the excommunications begin. Every now and then the church sees fit to make a very public example of a few “dissidents” in order to keep the rest of the flock scared lest the same thing happen to them.

Whatever happened to Joseph Smith’s admonition to teach them correct principles and let them govern themselves?

(update w/ video X2Prop 8: DEVASTATING internal memo from the LDS Church

(update w/ video X2) Prop 8: DEVASTATING internal memo from the LDS Church

You can see from my previous diaries that I have been all over the issue of Mormon donations to Prop 8.  But just now, something positively devastating just fell into my lap.  And my source says there’s a lot more where this came from.

I have received an internal memo from the Mormon Church dated March 4, 1997.  This memo discusses strategies for what the memo calls "HLM" (gay marriage) in Hawaii and California (I assume that HLM refers to "homosexual legal marriage" but if you have your own preferred acronym, feel free to use it).

Like I said–this memo is devastating.  And it demonstrates that they have been planning this Proposition 8 referendum for more than a decade.

Read on…

Above is the first page of this memo. It indicates, as you see, that the Mormon Church had been planning to coordinate with the Catholic Church to defeat “HLM” in Hawaii and California. Below are images of devastating quotes from this memo.

This memo overtly discusses strategy for making sure that “HLM” doesn’t make any more progress than it absolutely has to:

Go there for much more…
