I am very pleased that HB2, the Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, is now the law, and I congratulate our leaders on standing up to the aggressive LGBT lobbyists.
Speaking out to uphold a universal truth is not being a bigot or creating an unjust discrimination, rather the position we hold is true to the natural law (philosophy of Aristotle/Plato/Aquinas), medical research and to the will of the voters.
Ironically, many in the LGBT community are extremely judgmental and vindictive. Within the past few days, immense political pressure has been placed upon North Carolina to yield to the LGBT lobby (economic boycotts, loss of corporate sponsorship, etc.).
Likewise, I have been called a litany of names: “a bigot, a hater, a pseudo-Christian.” It’s this last claim that I feel obligated to address: As a convert to the Roman Catholic faith, I look to church authority for guidance. In 2015, Cardinal Robert Sarah characterized the aggressive LGBT lobbyists as being “violently intolerant, destroyers of families, society,” in a prophetic speech.
Never miss a local story.
It would be would be wise for the LGBT rhetoric to soften, otherwise we shall enter a circle of mutual escalation that may lead to an all-out ideological war.
