H8ers Lie a Lot

Coexist to Comply

In his dissent on the SCOTUS gay marriage decision, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote:

Human dignity has long been understood in this country to be innate. When the Framers proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,” they referred to a vision of mankind in which all humans are created in the image of God and therefore of inherent worth. That vision is the foundation upon which this Nation was built.

The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.

George Takei twisted this into an obscenity, then called Justice Thomas a “clown in black-face” for saying what he had not said:

And for him to say, slaves have dignity. I mean, doesn’t he know that slaves were in chains? That they were whipped on the back. If he saw the movie 12 Years a Slave, you know, they were raped. And he says they had dignity as slaves or – My parents lost everything that they worked for, in the middle of their lives, in their 30s. His business, my father’s business, our home, our freedom and we’re supposed to call that dignified? Marched out of our homes at gun point. I mean, this man does not belong on the Supreme Court. He is an embarrassment. He is a disgrace to America.

Catholic Vote has a new video up that has drawn a lot of negative attention from Left-wingers.

2015_07 02 CV video on Left media

But, praise God, all of this attention has only served to send more people to watch it!  The ad is currently being watched by nearly 500 new people every minute and 64% of the viewers are under the age of 35!

Not Alone

Even more amazing … people on both sides of the issue are calling out the hypocrisy of the #LoveWins movement.  The top comment on PerezHilton from “QueerEye” reads:

“I think you have seriously missed the point of this….the point is that people are being disrespected for their beliefs, they are being accused of bigotry for standing by their beliefs, they are coming out and saying that while they support gay people, they don’t believe what you believe…Shame on you for trying to make something out of this that it isn’t.”

Did you ever think that something a Catholic website did would provoke readers of Hollywood gossip sites to demand respect for religious freedom?
