Muslims demand Shariah Law, according to Jesse Lee Peterson, and gays demand “sodomy law.”

In a column titled “What’s Wrong With Discrimination?,” Peterson claims that “gays never wanted equality,” warning that LGBT people are instead acting “like fascists” and using the schools and the media to “brainwash” children…

LGBT groups have been effective in linking their immoral cause to the noble civil rights movement. In reality, gays never wanted equality. They wanted society to accept their sinful lifestyle, or else. LGBT groups – to be blunt – act like fascists. Just like militant Islam demands Shariah law, homosexual pressure groups demand “sodomy law.”

So what’s so bad about discrimination anyway? Discrimination has always been a hallmark of freedom. The ability to discriminate is given to us by God so that we can make right choices. People discriminate all the time. We discriminate when we date, marry, pick our friends and in countless other ways, just like homosexuals do. And LGBT groups and liberals discriminate against people of faith all day long!

    More theocratic right wing babble from a carcaricature of a human

    • thinkingwomanmillstone April 6th, 2015 at 12:30 pm

      How about a Fauxsimile of a Human. We certainly know which “news” network he’d be willing to work for.

      • whatthe46 April 6th, 2015 at 2:02 pm

        well ignorant people do like to hang around each other.

      • bluejayray April 6th, 2015 at 2:13 pm

        I like that–“Fauxsimile”. That describes the “news” that Fox “news” puts out.

    Another blamer who is projecting his own fascism onto others to justify his hatred.

    8. Religion and ruling elite tied together

    communist regimes, the fascist and protofascist regimes were never proclaimed as
    godless by their opponents. In fact, most of the regimes attached themselves to
    the predominant religion of the country and chose to portray themselves as
    militant defenders of that religion. The fact that the ruling elite’s behavior
    was incompatible with the precepts of the religion was generally swept under the
    rug. Propaganda kept up the illusion that the ruling elites were defenders of
    the faith and opponents of the “godless.” A perception was manufactured that
    opposing the power elite was tantamount to an attack on religion.

    so discrimination is ok, as long as it’s happening to some one else?

    • whatthe46 April 6th, 2015 at 2:01 pm

      that’s what i took from it.

  4. Larry Schmitt April 6th, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    Another claim that LGBT people are trying to “brainwash” kids in school. How about a little proof? I can’t recall one case where anyone was charged with that. The right keeps claiming it happens, but they provide no proof. That leaves only one logical conclusion: It’s not happening.

  5. Suzanne McFly April 6th, 2015 at 1:58 pm

    Discrimination is the same as choosing who I want to be friends with? No, I CHOOSE who to be friends with, discrimination is not just a choice one makes, it is an act of hatred. These jerks just assume they can say anything and the facts will then change to support their new claim. How did this jerk feel about the discrimination his fellow and current African Americans have felt? Since he is a token, he is not or has not been discriminated against? Go to a RNC party, I will garuntee him discrimination.

    • Jimmy Cahill April 6th, 2015 at 2:25 pm

      To add to your point, when we decide who we like as friends or who we don’t like, it is different b/c we are judging people by the content of their character. We don’t like the people they are. Being discriminatory toward somebody for their sexual preference completely disregards their character, the person they are. It would be like saying I don’t like plumbers, even though all plumbers are different people. That’s the big difference between choosing friends and discrimination. The prejudice, the discrimination is not liking somebody before you even know what kind of person they are. Not wanting somebody to be my friend usually happens after I know enough about a person to not like them.

      • Suzanne McFly April 6th, 2015 at 4:58 pm

        Very well put

  6. William April 6th, 2015 at 2:07 pm

    Just like militant Islam demands Shariah law, homosexual pressure groups demand “sodomy law.”

    That is likely the craziest combination of words I have ever read.

    • bluejayray April 6th, 2015 at 2:09 pm

      He’s not sounding so crazy NOW, is he?

      • Larry Schmitt April 6th, 2015 at 2:27 pm

        No, there has to be a better word for whatever he is than crazy. That just doesn’t do him justice.

      • William April 6th, 2015 at 2:32 pm

        Oh, I like Barry Goldwater. I liked Buckley as well.

        • Larry Schmitt April 6th, 2015 at 2:53 pm

          I thought it was referring to Peterson, not Goldwater. It takes a few minutes for your pictures to display, so I posted before I saw it. I’ll have to remember that.

        • granpa.usthai April 6th, 2015 at 3:17 pm

          William F. Buckley, Jr. as on ‘The Firing Line’?

          • Larry Schmitt April 6th, 2015 at 3:32 pm

            Wow, that takes me back.

          • William April 6th, 2015 at 3:48 pm

            Yes. Buckley was educated, articulate, spoke multiple languages and was accomplished in everything from science to music. He was a statesman, author and soldier. Heck he even played the harpsichord. I don’t agree with everything he wrote, or stood for ,but his observations were based upon history and logic. Buckley renounced his racism in the sixties and went on to support Martin Luther King Jr. day. He was able to evolve and learn without feeling like he was betraying his principles.
            Todays so called conservatives have devolved from the scholars and statesman of yesterday into the raving right wing, road kill eating, tin foil hat, wearing lunatics of today.

          • Robert M. Snyder April 6th, 2015 at 9:02 pm

            Agreed. I also miss Fred Friendly of the Columbia School of Journalism who hosted those wonderful debates on PBS.

          • William April 6th, 2015 at 9:48 pm

            “Our job is not to make up anybody’s mind, but to open minds, and to make the agony of decision-making so intense you can escape only by thinking.”

          • Robert M. Snyder April 6th, 2015 at 9:51 pm

            I never saw that quote before. I like it. Thanks.

  7. Bunya April 6th, 2015 at 2:11 pm

    Does anybody else see the irony here? A black guy condoning discrimination? Then I guess he’s fine with segregation, too?

    • bluejayray April 6th, 2015 at 2:12 pm

      No blue plate special for HIM at the lunch counter!

  8. bluejayray April 6th, 2015 at 2:11 pm

    He really should look into a mirror. Christians used (and still use) the buybull to discriminate against black people, too. In fact the buybull lays out the rules of commerce for trading them as slaves.

  9. Larry Schmitt April 6th, 2015 at 3:07 pm

    Discrimination is not the same as making choices. Discrimination is treating someone differently merely because he looks different or speaks differently from you.

  10. granpa.usthai April 6th, 2015 at 3:13 pm

    are we a nation that ‘believes’ in freedom and justice for all under ‘GOD’ ?
    or is that just a bunch of ‘fascist propaganda’
    to make the republiCONs feel ‘superior’
    like a master race should?

  11. Angelo_Frank April 6th, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    Who the heck is Jesse Lee Peterson and why does he act like a complete moron?

  12. Soothsayer123 April 6th, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    Hannity’s go-to guy when it’s time to praise whites and denounce blacks.

  13. majii April 6th, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    In my 33 years in the classroom, I recall having only one lesbian teacher I worked with. She taught special education classes and was a damn good teacher. There was never one word uttered about her trying to “influence” students to become gay, and to my knowledge, not one teacher ever reported that she’d mentioned anything about her sexual orientation. She was hired because she was highly qualified, which was the only standard anyone needed to meet to work in my state.

    If Peterson spent any time in classrooms, he’d realize that teachers are much too busy teaching and trying to keep up with their other responsibilities to discuss anything other than the subject matter. They don’t have time to meet with other teachers to discuss much of anything, except at department meetings, and even in these meetings, school and department issues are what is talked about.

    I don’t recall having any on-the-job-conversations about “pushing” a LGBT agenda. In fact, most of the teachers at the schools in the South where I taught were GOP/TPers, and I was always very careful about what I discussed with them. In small towns like the ones I worked in, it’s always best to protect your back because the first thing you say that someone doesn’t like/agree with could get you fired. I’d talk with them about students and school issues, but talking about LGBT equality wasn’t on the menu, and neither was discussing race, bigotry, homophobia or discrimination.

    There exists in the world a group of religious extremists which routinely relies upon biased interpretations of cherry-picked passages taken from holy scriptures to rationalize their intolerance and persecution of anyone who does not share their narrow view of societal norms.

    The group in question is, of course:
    1) the Taliban
    2) Israeli orthodox Jews
    3) American Christian conservatives
    4) all of the above

    ALL religions have ultra-orthodox factions, and these religious extremists are fundamentally intolerant of religions, cultures, lifestyles, and gender roles that don’t conform with their dogmatic beliefs and mores .
    They only vary in the means by which they display their intolerance.

    Religious extremism comes in many flavors, but they all share a common vision: “It’s my way or the highway”.

  15. Warman1138 April 7th, 2015 at 5:05 am

    Intolerable intolerance not very well thought out.

  16. bpollen April 7th, 2015 at 6:20 am

    With insightful analysis like that, how come his side is losing? The “God gave it to us so we have to use it” argument is dazzling and devastating to the opposition. The libruls and teh gayz spend all their time discriminating against good Christians. Why can’t they just get jobs?

  17. Snick1946 April 7th, 2015 at 9:21 am

    I was thinking as I read his statement- change the wording a bit and it would sound like all the arguments used by segregationists to keep black people down.
    WTF is it with some of these black conservatives? Don’t they ever hear themselves talk?

  18. PikeRver April 7th, 2015 at 8:56 pm

    So I guess Jessie Lee thinks it is OK for the White Christian Right Wing to discriminate against him because he is black.
