The Right to Slur the Gays
I knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it suck less: Today the Los Angeles Times reported on the growing movement of conservative Christians willing to sue for the right to discriminate against gays. From the Times:
The religious right aims to overturn a broad range of common tolerance programs: diversity training that promotes acceptance of gays and lesbians, speech codes that ban harsh words against homosexuality, anti-discrimination policies that require college clubs to open their membership to all.
At the center of the Times story is Ruth Malhotra, a 22-year-old student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, which officially bans slurs based on sexual orientation. “Malhotra sees that as an unacceptable infringement on her right to religious expression,” says the Times, and so Malhotra’s suing, in hopes of forcing Georgia Tech to revoke its tolerance policy.
I could go off for miles about the “stop oppressing my oppression!” school of Christian victimization (of which Ken Hutcherson is a master practitioner.) But it’s far more fun to share this most vibrant example of gay slurring found in my inbox this morning. (Sic throughout.)
