USDA promotes bigotry against Christians?


Here’s the lede on the June 17 Washington Times story on the USDA’s sensitivity-training program:

U.S. Department of Agriculture activists want to impose their intense brand of homosexual sensitivity training governmentwide, including a discussion that compares “heterosexism” — believing marriage can be between only one man and one woman — to racism.

You knew it was coming, didn’t you? This is how they rammed affirmative action down our throats: by dismissing all opposing arguments — good, bad or indifferent — under the demonizing term "racist" and marginalizing or forcing out a few of the more vocal opponents pour l'encourager les autres.

To equate "heterosexism" with racism is particularly nasty work precisely because there's still lingering traces of distrust, especially within people of color against white people. The precise problem with affirmative action, notwithstanding the fact that it works for the most part, is that it commits injustice against qualified white people in the name of correcting past injustices against people of color, against men in the name of women. But it's laughable to maintain that "the system" needs correction for gay people when their education and average household income is above the median.

No, the name of the game isn't "correction", it's indoctrination. Worse, if the USDA's policy is adopted throughout the Administration, it will make bigotry against faithful Christians official government policy. This Orwellian doublespeak needs to be protested and done away with ASAP!
