The Other Side of Tolerance

by: Tony Perkins

In the final hours of the health care debate, much was made over insults which were hurled at those members of Congress responsible for the massive government takeover. There was a clear effort to make the Democratic members, who supported the President's health care takeover, seem like "victims" who were taking principled stances for the people. The media was also quick to report word from Democratic leaders that 10 of their members had been victims of threats and acts of vandalism, which are inappropriate and have no place in civil discourse.

Meanwhile, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and his family were the targets of a death threat for which a Philadelphia man was arrested on Monday. While the media reported the threat against Rep. Cantor, they didn't point out that the suspect, Norman Leboon, claimed on his YouTube website that he is the "Messiah" of "gays and lesbians" and asks his homosexual "children" to leave the armed forces so that he might "smite" those remaining. This was not an insignificant omission. There is a clear pattern of intimidation that comes from many homosexual activists.

In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court will take up the issue next month in a case that springs from the Washington State ballot measure to protect marriage. As they have in Massachusetts, California and elsewhere, homosexual activists in Washington State resorted to civic terrorism to intimidate those who signed the ballot measure. The question in this case is whether or not those who sign can do so without their names being publicly released. The evidence is mounting that those who are trumpeting the call for tolerance, have little tolerance for those they disagree with.

What I want to specifically draw attention to is that "leftist liberals" and "media outlets" are really quick to accuse all Christians and anyone associated with the "Tea-Party" as "crazy, gun-toting, racist rednecks" anytime some idiot does something that disagrees with the liberal agenda!

Like this so-called Hutaree "militia" group that is in the news right now.  If what is being said is correct:

"That would be David B. Stone Sr., who federal authorities say is the leader of a Christian militia group called the Hutaree, which they accuse of plotting to kill law-enforcement officers in an attempt to spark a broad revolt against the U.S. government. Including raids in Ohio and Indiana over the same weekend, the authorities would arrest nine people, including Stone, his wife Tina and his son David Jr., 19. Another son, Joshua, 21, was apprehended late on Monday. The alleged Hutaree members have been charged with sedition and attempted use of weapons of mass destruction."

Just because this group touts themselves as a "Christian" group doesn't mean they are true followers of Christ.  What they were planning IS NOT Christian and true Christians do not endorse this behavior or those types of acts.

There are crazies everywhere claiming to represent all kinds of walks of life.  Just as in the article above... that is one crazy homosexual that needs to be put away.  But he does not represent all homosexuals.

The liberal left and "liberal" media need to be more careful how they label others that disagree with their views.  And the "liberal" media need to start reporting BOTH sides of an issue and not hushing up or refuse to report facts of a situation because it makes their side look bad.
