If Mr. LaBarbera was to red that title he'd be pretty upset. That's why, half in spite, I titled this post such. Yet I truly am thankful. Of course! Why would I not be thankful for more people gaining rights. Though Mr. LaBarbera thinks that by me and many others in America being thankful for the advances ruins Thanksgiving. In my opinion the only thing ruining Thanksgiving is this mans horrific comb over but I digress.
Now if you're like I was and you're thinking "Who the hell is Peter LaBarbera?!" Allow me to help. Mr. LeBarbera is the -Hold in those chuckles!- head of Americans For The Truth About Homosexuality. Which really is just false advertisement cause it's anything but the truth. Homosexuals don't have an "agenda to destroy America" they just want to have the right to a family and to have marriage rights as human beings -of which they are. Sadly though bigots much like, the -dick- "head" of AFTTAH, Peter.
Now Peters reason for thinking that they "ruin" Thanksgiving is cause apparently Thanksgiving is a Christian Holiday? I was always taught that is was a peaceful feast between the pilgrims -who were religious- and the Indians -who modern day Christians call Pagans. (Read some of my writings on that in the "Native American" category to the right.)
Ole Peter says "As secularism and – dare I say – godlessness deepen in these United States, many are leaving God out of Thanksgiving Day. Language always follows the heart: have you noticed the habit that has crept in of being thankful for this and that – without being thankful to God?"
So instead of being thankful just to be thankful we have to be thankful to god? What if we don't believe? Do Atheist still get turkey? I sure hope so cause that wonderful five pound bird in my kitchen will go to waste otherwise. Everyone who's excited and thankful for the homosexual advances ignore the bigots today. Eat and be happy cause you love people rather than hate them for their personal choices. If you're gay be bold and proud about it. Cause you're fabulous. We all are. And unlike Peter we have wonderful hair. . . even if we're bald. Happy Thanksgiving everyone even the grumpy bigots out there!
