For those who wish to escape the confines of party thought and think rationally. I'm Reno, and I'll be talking about news, politics, art, anything that catches my attention and/or wrath, but I'll be reporting it the way I see it. As the great Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson said, "So much for Objective Journalism. Don’t bother to look for it here - not under any byline of mine; or anyone else I can think of. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms."

Not Bullying Gays is Anti-Christian Bullying
So I was checking out
the articles and videos on the net as I usually do, when I suddenly came across
this piece. It was from a David Pakman show I found on Youtube which was posted today. It was all
about a guy named “Coach” Dave Daubenmire, who said on one of his internet show
that not allowing Christians to bully homosexuals for their lifestyle is
actually bullying against Christians
So I watched the
video and found that yes, this man did actually say that Christians are being bullied
because they are told they can’t bully homosexuals. For some insane reason
(which I will chalk to religion), this man believes that Christians have a
right to bully gays because their lifestyle goes against the will of god. Telling
them they can’t or shouldn’t bully people for being homosexual is an attack
against their religion, and therefore they are the ones who are really being
I can’t even begin go
into how stupid/hateful/ignorant this is, because the idea of it is just so
ridicules. It’s just another case of religious folk who claim to be bullied and
tormented because people refuse to agree with their insane doctrines.
FROM THE VIDEO:
Dave Daubenmire: “But
only in the last five, fifteen years has bullying become such a big issue, and
folks the whole bullying idea is built around the homosexual agenda. To try to
get people to (not) criticize, or make fun of, or poke fun at homosexuals, that
is the whole genesis of the “no bullying”. That’s where it all came from. What
is hate speech legislation? See? They say hate speech prevents bullying but it’s
not, it’s just the opposite. Hate speech increases bullying! In fact, when
someone says something that their conscience tells them to say, and everyone
rises up against him, then we see the majority begin to bully the minority once
again. And you know what’s rapidly happening in America? We’re beginning to see
Christians and Christian ideas and Christian values become the most bullied things
in all of this nation.”
David made a great
point in his video. He said that the “Coach” is actually sympathizing with gay
people in a way because he is basically saying that Christians being bullied is
bad because bullying is bad, essentially saying that if it’s bad for the goose
it’s bad for the gander.
I’m very sure the “Coach”
doesn’t see it that way but…wait a second…what is this man a coach of, anyway?
though, tell “Coach” Dave Daubenmire what you think of his statement.
