  1. I’ll take a stab at Dr. Brown’s question to Al, “What oppression?”

    THOUSANDS of gays will tell you that it’s oppressive to be told that they are reprobates and destroyers of society because of who they love.

  2. Greg, first, when did God ever determine morality on “who you love”? Second, our issue is not with what people do in the privacy of their homes but rather with what they seek to advocate in society as a whole, with all its implications. Third, we call all people to turn from sin — no matter how deeply ingrained it is — and to receive forgiveness and new life through Jesus.

    If anyone wants to call that “oppression,” they are simply recreating the word to fit their agenda. Pretty simple!

  3. Dr. Brown,

    It’s not just “calling” it oppression. It’s real oppression. Anti-gay initiatives hurt our fellow gay Americans and Christians, in very real ways.

    But, I think know this. Hard data confirms it.

    >>Hatzenbuehler and his colleagues Katie McLaughlin, Katherine Keyes and Deborah Hasin published their analysis in 2010 in the American Journal of Public Health.

    >> “Lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals who lived in the states that banned same-sex marriage experienced a significant increase in psychiatric disorders,” Hatzenbuehler says.

    >> “There was a 37 percent increase in mood disorders,” he says, “a 42 percent increase in alcohol-use disorders, and — I think really strikingly — a 248 percent increase in generalized anxiety disorders.”

    When you lead these crusades against gays, our brothers and sisters are damaged by it. This is oppression in the most real sense.

  4. Greg,

    When you finally take the time to read through A Queer Thing Happened to America, we can have a serious discussion about these issues on my show one day. Once again, your rhetoric (“crusades” and “anti-gay initiatives” — like saying marriage is male and female!), coupled with an incredibly selective use of documentation, disqualifies even the possibility of a serious discussion. As always, you are quite welcome to post here, but, time constraints aside, I’ll not be responding.

  5. Greg – you may want to be careful when you claim hard data supports your claim. Statistically, correlation does not equate to causation. So even if I bought into your numbers (which I do not at this time) the cause of whatever psychiatric disorder may be claimed has really not been be tied to opposition of gay marriage in terms of causation. Philosophically, I have another problem. It is that your line of reasoning leads to the conclusion that if someone disagrees with a gay marriage politically, then they are engaging in some sort of oppression. This is little more than saying if you don’t agree with me you are oppressing me. This type of argument is rhetoric rather than statistical data.

  6. NYC is in a Critical Battle for its soul! Character counts, repeated moral failures indicate that a deep character flaw exists. What a candidate has as a political/personal track record is the true indicator of whether the person is fit to govern. Please do not be fooled by their double speak. Compromise has resulted in moral decline. The Word of God says “that when the righteous rule the people are glad.” In picking a candidate, research their platform and vote for the person, not Party alone. As Christians we have a responsibility to evaluate, pray and show up to vote. We can influence the results of this Mayoral Race for righteousness. Oh Lord that You would forgive our sins and turn the City around! You did it for Nineveh, Father. May God’s Kingdom come and His will be done in NYC as it is in Heaven.
