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

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
