Do I have First Amendment Rights????
These days, it seems the only people who have First Amendment rights are the people who are doing vile, disgusting, or wrong things.
I am a straight, white, Christian male. Lately, it seems I am wrong for being so. In the Army, we have Hispanic Month, Black History Month, Asian/Pacific Islander Month, and now we are told that June is Gay/Lesbian month. If I were to ask for a White history month, I would be labled a rascist. If I wanted a Straight History Month, I would be called a gay hater. If I were to ask to march in a Christian Parade in uniform, I would be told I would get in trouble for doing so.
Everyone wants to blame guns for the very tragic events that have taken place throughout our country over the last decade. Guns dont commit crimes. Idiots commit crimes. But even dumber people believe that taking guns away fixes the problem. The only people left with guns after a gun ban, are the people who dont follow the law anyhow. So now you simply disarmed those law abiding citizens and left them defenseless against armed criminals.
Additionally, for as long as I can recall, military members were not allowed to wear their uniforms in any demonstration supporting any cause/political event, ect. Earlier this month, the DOD put out a memorandum to all services informing them of a change to policy, allowing gays to march in the gay parade in San Francisco while in uniform. It blows my mind that the women in uniform breastfeeding were chastised by the military the way they were, but now gays can wear the uniform and march in the gay pride parade. (I dont think the women were right for what they did either, but what a dizzying double standard, with both events within a month or so of eachother).
Now, I read this article about Chik-Fil-A's owner, I believe, saying he supports the "biblical definition of a family", and everyone is blown away. The gays and lesbians are planning demonstrations, boycotts, you name it. Its plastered on facebook, yahoo, Fox, NBC. So this guy doesn't deserve to state his beliefs? Is everyone now supposed to cater to people who really believe that God, Mother Nature, Buddha, Science, whatever you want to believe, created humans to attempt pro-create with partners of the same sex?
If someone were to create a television channel called White Entertainment Television, would they get away with it, or would they be labeled a rascist for even mentioning it?
Dont get me wrong. I have no problem with BET, Gays/Lesbians, anyone of any race or religion. Everyone can do what they choose. My own wife is Asian, but she too agrees that things are out of control.
Almost every store I have been to in Georgia I get dirty looks when I walk in. The people who work at these stores seem to look at me and blame me for the Treyvon Martin debacle. As if I had anything to do with it. I was in Afghanistan fighting in a *&$%ed up war.
It seems to me my friends, that I have become the minority in this country, and I am unwanted here. Its almost a shame that I have given most of my life in service of a culture that thinks I cant get right, and apparently I don't have the same rights as the people who I was fighting to protect.
