The narrative from the anti-gay crowd has been either “We’re not discriminating by insisting gays shouldn’t be able to do what straight people can do!” or “It’s we who are being discriminated against when gay people are allowed to do what we do!” In both cases, discrimination is being treated as the horrible thing everybody acknowledges it to be.
Did I say “everybody”? Sorry, I forgot about Bryan Fischer:
“Discrimination, when it comes to sexual behavior,” Fischer proclaimed,” is not bad, it is good, and it is necessary. The alternative is utter social chaos. So [it’s] time, ladies and gentlemen, to reclaim the discrimination word when it comes to sexual matters. It’s not bad; it’s good. It’s a virtue and it’s necessary”
The honesty is refreshing. However, the alternative to giving equal rights to all Americans is not social chaos. You guys already tried that line with Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, remember? Our military was going to devolve into chaos, recruiting would plummet, yadda, yadda, yadda. None of it ever happened, and your fear-mongering here won’t come to fruition either. If gay people are allowed to marry, the consequence will be gay people being able to marry. That’s it.
Oh, and you’re wrong on a second count, Bryan: discrimination is not a virtue. It never has been and it never will be, and the cosmic thumbs up you think you’re getting from Jesus doesn’t change that.
