The Orlando Mass Murder Does Not Refute Heteronormativity

Homosexual Muslim, Murderer of Homosexuals: Omar Mateen, the Islamic mass-murderer who slaughtered 49 people in an Orlando “gay” nightclub, was himself involved in homosexual activity. Nevertheless, homosexual activists are exploiting the massacre to attack Christians and conservatives opposed to the immoral “gay rights” agenda.

“The shooter saw himself in the category of unmanly men, and couldn’t stand it.  Someone, he felt, had to be punished.  And he would be the punisher, thereby distancing himself from that category.” — Sharon Kass

Folks, I was watching Sean Hannity on Fox News last night and he noted how the Left is using the Orlando Islamic terror-massacre to promote gun control, but he did not mention how liberals are exploiting it to advance the homosexual activist agenda. (CNN’s openly homosexual anchor Anderson Cooper has done so rather shamelessly.) Here Sharon Kass steers us back to reality.

We at AFTAH are peaceful truth advocates and have always deplored violence and genuine hatred against ‘homosexuals’ (we do not believe in “gay” identity as inherent or permanent). Oddly, in this case, the Islamic mass-murderer, Omar Mateen, reportedly was himself involved in homosexual behavior–trying to pick up men at the Pulse “gay” night club, using the homosexual-sex-finder app Grindr (I refuse to call it a “dating app”), etc.

But even that essential fact doesn’t matter to LGBT Leftists, who chalk it all up to “homophobia” and roll it in to their ongoing campaign against Christian conservatives and biblical morality. Politically speaking, “progressives” simply will not let this crisis go to waste, to quote Rahm Emanuel, one-time Obama adviser and current Chicago mayor. Our hearts go out to the families of the Orlando victims, but we cannot stand by silently while LGBT activists and the media hijack this terribly tragedy to promote their false “gay” activist narrative. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

The Orlando Mass Murder Does Not Refute Heteronormativity

By Sharon Kass

“It’s a hate crime.”  The recent mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando is, predictably, being spun for maximum political effect.

The Left-liberal “logic” is as follows:  Disapproval of homosexuality is the motive for the mass murder of homosexuals; mass murder of anyone is very wrong; therefore, disapproval of homosexuality is very wrong.

Wrong:

1.  Preferential homosexuality is not innate.
 
2.  Disapproval of irrational conduct and propensities doesn’t kill anyone.
 
3.  Preferential homosexuality is both preventable and treatable. 

4.  Untreated homosexuality, whether or not acted on, leads to dangers of various sorts:  diseases, intra-relationship/liaison violence, stress-related illnesses, and health-harming activities like smoking, drug abuse, excessive drinking, and overeating.

The ironic thing is that a violent man’s violence can typically be traced to not having been socially fathered properly.  So the killer and his male victims have masculine insecurity in common.  (Key features of “gay” genesis are father failure when boy was age two, and, commonly, an extra-sensitive, often artistic, nature.)  An inappropriate urge to dominate–a kind of overcompensation for deep feelings of weakness–drives illicit violence.  The inappropriate urges to: (1) bond with another male in a sexualized way; (2) show crude strength by rebelling against nature and society; and (3) avoid the romantic-sexual challenges presented by a woman partner drive male homosexuality.  (See Joseph Nicolosi’s “The Meaning of Same-Sex Attraction” and “Fathers of Male Homosexuals.”  Also, “Attachment Loss and Grief Work in Reparative Therapy.”)

Recruiting Homosexual Journalists: Fox News’ recruiting table at homosexual journalists (NLGJA) convention, at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago. The event featured one-sided presentations by speakers in favor of “gay rights,” with no countervailing advocates of traditional morality.

CHICAGO–As it has year after year, Fox News Channel served as a major sponsor of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalist Association (NLGJA), providing a $10,000 grant for its 2014 annual convention, which recently concluded here (August 21-24). The conservative-leaning network also recruited at the homosexual journalists event.

Fox signed on as a “Feature Sponsor” for the convention–which included several one-sided presentations in favor of homosexual and transgender activist goals, and zero speakers advocating against LGBT goals such as the legalization of same-sex “marriage.” I attended a day and a half of the three-day conference, which was held at the swank Palmer House Hilton hotel in the downtown Loop. As in the past, NLGJA organizers allowed me (a critic, and not a homosexual journalist) to attend, but only after paying a “non-member” registration fee ($330/day).

Other media and corporate sponsors of the event included: CNN; CBS; ESPN; Comcast-NBC; Bloomberg; Gannett; Coca-Cola (the largest sponsor at $25,000); JetBlue airlines; Eli Lilly & Co.; Toyota; Nissan and the homosexual lobby organization Human Rights Campaign.

A natural bias?

Proud 'Gay' Christianity? Openly homosexual Lutheran (ELCA) Bishop Rev. Dr. Guy Erwin (far left) and former Episcopal Bishop V. Gene Robinson (second from right) pose for photo following their presentation at the NLGJA convention. Robinson, who gained international fame as the first openly homosexual bishop of a major Christian denomination, criticized Christians who do not wish to participate in homosexual "weddings." Robinson said there is something "profane and sacrilegious" about "religious people arguing for the right to discriminate." No opposing orthodox Christian viewpoint was included on the panel.

Gene Robinson (second from right) pose for photos following their joint presentation at the NLGJA convention. Robinson, who gained international fame as the first openly homosexual bishop of a major Christian denomination, criticized Christians who do not wish to participate in homosexual “weddings.” He said there is something “profane and sacrilegious” about “religious people arguing for the right to discriminate.” No opposing orthodox Christian viewpoint was included on the homosexual journalists association panel.

What I found at the Chicago conference is what I have observed at every other NLGJA convention I have attended in the last two decades: the natural bias that one would expect from an organization whose members view homosexuality personally and mainly through a “civil rights” prism.

The prevailing viewpoint at the conference–surely shared by most secular media professionals these days–is that “gay, lesbian and transgender” journalists are a legitimate sexual (or gender) “minority,” not unlike racial and ethnic minorities, deserving solicitous attention in newsrooms. That would include allowing LGBT journalists to guide coverage on homosexual-bisexual-transgender stories in culture and politics.

Even the NLGJA panel on religion and “gay rights” was bereft of a traditionalist perspective, while the two openly homosexual speakers—former Episcopal Church bishop V. [Vicky] Gene Robinson and new Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA) Bishop Rev. Doctor Guy Erwin—were heralded in the program as leaders of “this next wave of the civil rights movement.”

Both Revs. Robinson and Erwin compared opposition to homosexuality and Christian businessmen’s principled refusal to participate in “gay weddings” to racist bigotry (see below).

Perhaps it is asking too much of “mainstream” journalists who consider homosexuality part of their intrinsic identity (“who they are”) to cover LGBT-related issues impartially. Nevertheless, intellectual diversity and ‘opposing’ viewpoint inclusion—the watchwords of this conference and pro-LGBT advocacy in general—were in short supply at the NLGJA convention. That is a peculiar and glaring deficit for a profession that ideally is supposed to cover “both sides” of controversial issues.

To quote the famous Fox News’ slogan: the NLGJA religious panel was hardly “Fair and Balanced” regarding the controversial question of (pro-) “gay Christianity”: who could argue that openly homosexual bishops advocating for rights based on homosexuality is not a divisive issue?
