Is Faux News calling on Gays to be put to death?

fox news imagesIn even stranger news...Miss Beverly Hills 2010, Lauren Ashley, who will compete in the Miss California pageant in November, told Faux News that not only is she against same-sex marriage, but that she thinks it is divine law that gays should be put to death because “the Bible is pretty black and white“ on the issue. Despite her strong words about homosexuality, Ashley also told Fox that she “has a lot of friends that are gay,” and that there’s “no hate between [her] and anyone.”  Naw - no need to hate people.  Just send them off to the showers to be gassed.  Make them wear pink stars first, so we can identify them.  And this woman is on national TV?  Oh, yeah, it was Faux News

Miss Ashley would be right at home in Uganda. Maybe she can get a job as spokesmodel for The Family.

Ms. Ashley defines what is so wrong with this country, in that she believes she has a right to impose her own belief system--which she calls truth--onto other Americans.

The major political parties, and most religions, also believe that their certainty of belief allows them the divine right to impose their will on others.

Since the time of Reagan, and, some would argue, since the era conservative Theocracy first inserted itself into our political process in the 1950's, our government has not operated "for" the people, rather it has run to "influence" the people as it coerces them with a set of certainties that are not universally believed.

Ms. Ashley comes from a sophisticated region, and most likely received her education in some of the finest schools in the Los Angeles area. It is, therefore, quite surprising she has come to the decision that her gay & lesbian co-citizens should not only have their civil rights taken away, but that they somehow deserve to be killed.

I am Jewish, but living as an agnostic. However, it is my belief that ALL beauty pageant contestants, in fact, ALL blonde-haired women, must be stoned to death because they are suffering from extraordinary vanity. Sounds silly, doesn't it?

If she is as well-rounded, and as well-versed in the Bible as she represents herself to be, then she knows that the Bible was written by a group of men who were desperately trying to restore order and create a safe society during a time of great suffering.

I believe that women like Ms. Ashley should not be rewarded for making public her very shameful and divisive comments, and not be allowed to compete in a highly public competition where she have an opportunity to further divide this country with her hate speech about gays and lesbians.

I am a straight woman, but I know with certainty that all homosexuals were born as they are; it is not a choice or even a behavior. They are gay & lesbian in the very same way that I am straight, due to their genetic makeup.

How can anyone who claims to believe in the “black and white” Bible possibly believe otherwise? The fact that the Bible even refers to homosexuality is evidence proving the genetic reason for our sexual orientation. Does anyone think a person would choose to be gay when it meant certain death in biblical times? Why would anyone choose it today, when the hazards are as potentially devastating.

We need to stop people from Ms. Ashley from damaging us with her hate speech by not giving her a public forum to do so.

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise.
