Tea Party Nation Condemns Navy Kiss As "Sexual Aberration"

Last week many across the blogosphere hailed the "first kiss" Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta and her partner, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, when the USS Oak Hill returned to the Little Creek Navy Base after deployment. I was one of the bloggers cheering. Others, however, were outraged and the spittle has been flying. Among the groups condemning the Navy for sanctioning "sexual aberration" was Tea Party Nation. The action helps to underscore the fact that a huge majority of the so-called Tea Party movement are knuckle dragging Christianists who believe only they themselves merit religious freedom. The rest of us are supposed to shut up and accept their fear and hate based religious beliefs. Right Wing Watch reported on the Tea Party Nation statement. Here are some highlights:

In a message sent to Tea Party Nation members, the group’s resident bigot Alan Caruba wrote that the kiss proves the military is being “used by gay and lesbian advocacy groups as a petri dish to force social change” to help people who have an orientation that is a “sexual aberration”:

For generations of Americans, the most famous kiss between a Navy sailor and a nurse occurred during the celebration of V-J Day in New York’s Times Square on August 14, 1945.

The photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt was published in Life magazine a week later. It said everything you needed to know about the joy with which the nation responded to the end of World War Two and everything about the shared values of the nation.

So, when a photo of a homecoming kiss between Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta kissing her “partner”, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell went public on December 22, it set gay and lesbian hearts atwitter. What the predominantly heterosexual population thought of it was unreported.

But why? The answer is the way the U.S. military has been used by gay and lesbian advocacy groups as a petri dish to force social change. The other location for influencing such change is in our nation’s schools and manifests itself in charges of massive bullying and questionable sex education curriculums, many of which evoke outrage among today’s parents.

Gays and lesbians play on the inherent sense of fairness and tolerance that is a hallmark of American society. The result is that homosexuality is now widely represented in popular culture to the point of being accepted as “normal.” It is not “normal.” It is a sexual aberration involving a very small portion of the overall population, perhaps no more than four percent. Always was, always will be.

The photo of two Navy lesbians kissing represents the “progress” that a vocal minority has made, given the support of liberal politicians on both sides of the aisle working against the tide of resistance of majority Americans who are fighting the social implications of “gay rights”, the demands for “gay marriage”, and the influence over young minds passing through government school systems.,

The best description of today's far right and conservative "Christians" is "all hate all the time." Every policy ultimately traces back to selfishness and contempt for someone else in society. And if one challenges this sick social/religious mindset, you'd best expect to be denigrated and slandered.
