As bad as it is here, it’s always worse in Europe. The European Parliament recently passed a resolution called “Homophobia in Europe” that has Christians worried that same-sex marriage and acceptance of homosexuality will be forced on them.
The controversial resolution urging member states to ban “homophobia” states that “homophobia can be defined as an irrational fear of and aversion to homosexuality and of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people based on prejudice, similar to racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and sexism.”
So much for freedom of religion and freedom of speech. As many have said repeatedly, it is not enough for homosexual activists that they be “tolerated”, i.e. allowed to live in peace as long they don’t force it on other, but they must be “accepted”, i.e. we must express our undying admiration and respect for homosexuality as normal. Anything less is hate speech, according to their ideology.
