We see history repeating itself now adays. When Hitler took over Germany in the 1930’s he started in on all the small groups that did not fit the Ayran mold. Anyone that was mentally deficient, crippled, Gypsies or homosexual got eliminated in the name of “purifying” the race. Our family members who benefited through the war that followed, WWII for those of you too young to remember, did not think that Hitler was all that bad.
Today we see mini Hitler’s popping up all over the landscape.
In Indiana, the governer says that businesses can discriminate against gays by not taking their business.
In Arizona, State Senator Sylvia Allen wants church going to be mandatory. Is this going to be the New Church of National Socialism?
In Orange County, Ca, the worst neo Nazi claims the word of god has led him to put forth an initiative for our consideration at the polls that would have us turn into state sponsored murderers. the newsmen were embarrassed even to tell us what was in it.
Mainly, this insane fellow, Matt McLaughlin wants a state law enabling us to kill all homosexuals of either gender. If the state would not back this law, then it would be up to the general public to carry out the executions “extra judicially”. Meaning, out side the law.
I am struck by the similarities in the Nazi German government and the actions of this man. He claims it is according to his god that we put his law into effect. I am wondering if passage of laws making it legal for only a man and a woman to marry each other and the laws against abortion, and the laws enabling cake makers to refuse service according to their religion is not the slippery slope to full on “extra judicial murder”. And then we will make it illegal to be a Gypsy, mentally challenged, or anything but a Protestant? Just think about that. Were you willing to deny people their civil rights? Are you willing to pull the trigger? What kind of a society does that make us?
My sensible solution to this problem is to circulate a petition to discontinue the initiative program here in California. It has degenerated into the football of special interests and brainwashed kooks.
