"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably."

and it's been forged.

it is something we have been preaching for years, and been called 'homophobic' and 'self hating' because of it but you can't unleash censorship on the general public and seriously believe it won't come around and bite you on the butt.

A guilty pleasure I have found is watching Celebrity Big Brother from the UK (stop, I know it's bad!! but it's soooo fun too....)

anyway, this season they have a few gay people (they always do) but this year they have older gay people and younger gay people. One of the popular English actors was just thrown off of CBB for language that could 'greatly harm' the other housemates and the viewing public. His offense? Speaking about bisexuality and blaming bisexuals for AIDS...the look of shocked, stunned disbelief on his face when he is told he is being thrown out is so sad. You could tell he wanted to say "but I'm gay, I can't be in trouble!" but his liberal guilt wouldn't let him defend himself.

What liberals don't understand is that there will always be a hierarchy of 'victims' and they can not count on being the 'chosen' victim du jour. The chain they forged for the Christian or the Conservative is around their own necks.

I don't know where we'll go from here. I know that the Constitution is hanging by the thread but I thank God for it.

here is the link, the 'offensive' comments were at 6:17 and the eviction is right at 15:00.





** interesting to note that as 'offensive' and 'harmful' as the comments supposedly were, they DID choose to show them!

A flimsy excuse based on a politically correct assessment of Biggie's comments. While he certainly did perpetuate the stereotype that gays have of bisexuals, he didn't say anything that was not factual about the spread of AIDS.

I also noticed that the other house-mates think his removal was wrong.
