Emboldened by the recent Supreme Court decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act, gay activists are clamoring louder than ever about everything, from how teachers describe marriage to Hollywood films that come against its homosexual agenda.
Of course, the former is nothing new, but the latter is just one example of what we can expect to see—and see more of—as radical gay activism seeks to exert its minority force on all spheres of society.
While I understand the uproar over Alec Baldwin’s online outburst—what some are calling a “homophobic rant,” after a Daily Mail reporter suggested his wife was tweeting during Soprano's actor James Gandolfini's funeral last month—the move to boycott Harrison Ford’s latest film is absurd.
Gay rights activists have targeted Ender’s Game, calling for a boycott because the sci-fi thriller’s author, Orson Scott Card, doesn’t buy into gay marriage.
It seems radical gay activists are taking exception to Card joining the board of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which was birthed in an effort to combat Proposition 8 legislation banning gay marriage in California.
“Do not buy a ticket at the theatre, do not purchase the DVD, do not watch it on-demand. Ignore all merchandise and toys. ... By pledging to skip Ender's Game, we can send a clear and serious message to Card and those that do business with his brand of anti-gay activism—whatever he’s selling, we’re not buying," a post on Geeks OUT’s website reads. The film is set to debut in November.
The gay agenda already worked to get Card fired from DC Comics for his beliefs. DC Comics shelved Card’s part in a Superman project indefinitely in response to the gay agenda’s intimidation. So why not go after the Harrison Ford film and anything else that gets in the way of LGBT momentum too?
Can you see it? We are moving into an era where anyone who disagrees with what the gay agenda wants is muzzled, shut down and downright boycotted.
Of course, gays boycotting brands didn’t start with Ender’s Game. The gay agenda made headlines last year for boycotting Chick-fil-A. Gov. Mike Huckabee counteracted that boycott with Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day that caused the chicken chain to post a world record sales day.
But that was last year. This is now.
With a fresh wind of boldness courtesy of the U.S. Supreme Court, you can expect to see radical gay activists rush to the fore with boycotts on anything and everything that refuses to bow down to its moves to further reshape our culture in the name of tolerance.
