Why doesn't Rose Parade have "stoning a homosexual float?"


Ralar

Recommended Posts

Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio were upset about a float at the Rose Bowl parade that included a married gay couple which, despite nasty attacks from anti-gay activists, went off without incident (and even won an award). Buehner was perplexed by the fact that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation sponsored the float, saying that its “pro-homosexual propaganda†would “spread AIDS.â€

He added: “I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.â€

I suspect they would not allow such a float as they are generally decent human beings.

Fundies, for the millionth time, there is no guarantee to free speech within a private organisation. The rose parade is administered by a private foundation. They have no constitutional obligation to allow your hate speech. You, on the other hand, can have your own "hate parade" if you wish but I suspect it will be somewhat less popular than the Rose parade.

it would be impossible to make that stoning float as there are no Christians free from sin to cast the first stone.

Better to have christians ripping babies from the bellies of single woman and a slave auction of the SAHD's.

Irony would be the team making the float, using grammar "learned" at SOTDRT and instead of "Stoning a Homosexual" they ended up naming the float "Stoner the Homosexual".

They want to stone people. In a parade. Because that's a perfectly reasonable idea for a parade float. Beauty queens. Cheerleaders. Scout troops. Marching bands. Hate-filled fundies stoning people to death.

If you're fantasizing aloud about killing people, even as an "intellectual exercise," there just might be something wrong with you.

Unfortunately, I can't like your quote multiple times.

If you read through the thread, you'll find a beautiful comment by high uintas who posts a lot on the daily thread (the Pootie diaries) where we talk a lot about our pets. I consider her a friend even though we've never met IRL. Anyway, she talks about a old friend of the family's who worked full-time on the floats. He was the first out gay man she ever knew.

I did love how the AIDS Healthcare Foundation's float was followed by the float from the Lutheran Laymen's League. The theme of that float was the Jesus welcomes everyone.

edited to add an apostrophe

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
