Bully For You, Governor!

Amid much fanfare, surrounded by a crowd of the usual suspects, Governor "Big Lug" Culver signed the "Bully Bill" into law today at Valley High School in West Des Moines. Story here. I think it no coincidence that this is the school where the propaganda play "The Laramie Project" was performed recently.

This bill was never about bullying, but about using the power of the state to force citizens to not only tolerate homosexual behavior, but to affirm it. If it was really about preventing bullying of all students, as opposed to advancing the homosexual agenda, they would have left out the categories and required that school district policies cover ALL students. Couple this with the fact that school districts already had all the tools they needed to prevent bullying, and the fact that there are no enforcement "teeth" in this law, and you will realize that it is about writing homosexuality into the state code as a protected behavior. And this is just the first step. Stay tuned for breaking developments!

In discussion with liberals, you will often hear them accuse conservative Christians of "trying to shove their morals" down everyone else's throats. But let's assess the situation. Are we the ones who are trying to change the standards? No! It is the liberals, in this case specifically relating to homosexuality, who are trying to change the norm.

Until recently, everyone knew homosexuality was sinful. To recognize those who practice it as a class to be defined and protected by law, and for same-sex marriage and civil unions to be recognized in this society, is something that couldn't have been imagined just a few short years ago. And now, it is being forced upon us. And those of us who just want to maintain the values we have always had in this culture--indeed, in the entire civilization--are somehow the villains. Right has become wrong, and wrong has become right in this morally corrupt society in which we live today.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
