LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer) issues have been a major debate in our society the last two decades of the 20th Century and continues to be in the first two decades of the 21st Century. Whether it is marriage, child rearing, bullying or hate crimes there isn't a topic that doesn't include some element of LGBT. Contrary to media and some political talking heads, most Americans want everyone to be who they are. It only becomes a problem when militant activity overrides the civil rights issue. We have much to agree with on this subject if we would not let the very small militant groups dominate the conversation. Separating political agendas and fringe militancy from the honest social debate on this issue is needed. LGBT demographics were revealed in a 2017 Gallup poll concluded that 4.5% of adult Americans identified as LGBT with 5.1% of women identifying as LGBT, compared with 3.9% of men. A different survey in 2016, from the Williams Institute, estimated that 0.6% of U.S. adults identify as transgender. Follow the debate below.

SCOTUS confirms Progressives are 'bigots'

from The Gray Area:

SCOTUS decision today in favor of the Colorado baker who would not bake a special cake for a gay couple is huge in that it exposes so many of the left's false narratives. Listen to a gay man and a black woman explain it. 1. The decision is narrow, yet clear, as it provides directions specific to this case using Constitutional law without limiting future claims regarding issues of discrimination. One person's freedoms do not automatically trump (no pun intended) another person's freedoms, just because the ruling class says so. What a breath of fresh air from the Court. Go to the 14:00 mark of the following podcast. 2. Progressives are about people, fair, inclusive, non-racial and tolerant. That is BS, and everyone knows it, except the media. Now, the Supreme Court has explained exactly how intolerant the left is and called them "bigots" in the majority opinion. RUSH: it was Justice Kennedy who wrote the majority decision. And the left is scared to death over this, and they’re out there saying, “Don’t worry. It’s very, very narrow. It’s a very narrow interpretation, and it’s not a constitutional interpretation, so don’t worry about it.” But they can’t stop worrying about it. CNN hasn’t stopped analyzing it, hasn’t stopped talking about it. The reason they’re trying to say it’s narrow is that the court’s ruling today did have a lot to do with the way the baker was treated by the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. They called him a Nazi. They said he was a Holocaust denier. They gave him the usual deranged, insane left-wing insults at the hearing at the Colorado Civil Rights Commission on this dispute, whether he should have to bake a cake for a gay wedding. He said he didn’t want to, it violated his religious beliefs. And the court said we can’t have this kind of decision-making. We can’t have this man’s religious rights denigrated in this way by the Civil Rights Commission. So in a sense, the ruling was not constitutional, but, folks, to tell you how important this is and how big it is, you have to look at what would have happened if it had gone the other way.

3. Listen to a gay man describe the Supreme Court's 'gay baker' decision today. RUSH: Fine. Thank you for calling. CALLER: So I told your screener — and, first of all, I’m very nervous. But I just want to say that I agree with the ruling today. And as someone who is married to a man who grew up Catholic and who had to hide who he was for a very long time out of fear of what would happen with his family, it does not make our situation any easier when these militants are on the news because they do not represent me. His family didn’t show up at our wedding because they believe a marriage is between one man and one woman. And I don’t want to brand them a bigot or a homophobe for the rest of their lives when I could have an opportunity to have a relationship with them. I’d rather understand where they’re coming from and try to build off of what we have in common than brand them over a decision like a cake and then not have a relationship with the man I love’s family. ... I think these militants make it worse, not better, and they don’t have me — ... — in mind when they’re out there doing it. RUSH: That’s interesting. The militant… See, I have long thought that, but I thought that I was kind of in a very tiny minority on that. CALLER: No. I think they are. I just think they’re really loud and obnoxious, and so they get on the news. RUSH: What do you think their purpose is? ‘Cause in this cake case… I mean, Travis, if — CALLER: They went on TV, and they said what their case was. They said it was never about the cake; it was about making them do what they wanted them to do. And I would rather go get a cake from somewhere else and not be on the news and have a chance — at understanding where other people are coming from — RUSH: Exactly! CALLER: — than force my will on them any more than I want them to force their will on me. I know a lot of people don’t accept gay marriage. However, it’s a lifestyle choice I made. They choose not to bake me a cake. I’ll get one somewhere else. RUSH: Let me tell you, as time goes on and particularly in younger demographics, more and more people are accepting gay marriage and gay relationships. The Millennial generation has no problem at all with it. CALLER: My sexuality makes up so small of who I am as a person; it really shouldn’t matter. You do what you do in your home; I’ll do what I do in mine. In the meantime, we should all be nice to each other in public. I get a cake anywhere, and I’ll bake it if I have to. RUSH: Travis, thank you. I appreciate the call. That is the key. ... Probably in cahoots with some militant political gay group, they found a bakery that they knew would refuse to do it and walked in there and got exactly what they wanted because this is about forcing… He said it. This is about forcing a certain set of social and political beliefs and making them acquiesce to it. And beyond that, after they acquiesce to it, they will love it. And if you don’t, they’re gonna come after you. 4. SCOTUS decision is huge in that it exposes the left's objective "that you must do what we want you to do". RUSH: What do you think their purpose is? CALLER: They went on TV, and they said what their case was. They said it was never about the cake; it was about making them do what they wanted them to do. And I would rather go get a cake from somewhere else and not be on the news and have a chance — 5.
