TRANSAPOCALYPSE

The following video is from ” Rapture Ready: The Unauthorized Christians United for Israel Tour”

At the end of the video, I caught a glimpse of this:

This kind of display dispels the notion by some in the civil rights community that GLBT people aren’t being dehumanized.

  • With support like that, who needs enemies?

    Actually after viewing the website, I’m surprised that the t-shirt is as coherent as it is. Even though that National Zoo comment seems like a non sequitur, the leaps of logic on the site are staggering, even from the perspective of a theistic trans person like myself. I’m always baffled at how such hate can sound like love to them. I know the argument, they think its like being rude and loud in your efforts to warn people to get out of a burning house. Its the right thing to do in their mind. But if the house is NOT on fire, then you are just a nuisance and an idiot. There can be no debate, as Marti has pointed out elsewhere, when their words contain nothing but dogma and opinion. Its like the noise of a braying animal. Hmmm kind of like the ones in the National Zoo.

  • I’ve long said that the reason they like to say, “What’s next after gay marriage, people marrying dogs?” is because the comparison of homosexuality (and other transgressive sexuality) to bestiality is a logical and natural one; i.e. to them, we are not human.

    We have to treat this as a war, because that is how they are treating it, and that is how they are treating us.

    It is an attempt at dehumanization, of course, but I’m actually analyzing the statement – yes, I know, applying logic, etc., to what they say and do is like abusing a helpless, diseased weasel – and I’d like them to explain exactly what they mean.

    Are they saying that same-sex sexual activity between two humans will yield non-human offspring – and these are what are on display at the zoo? Or vice versa? Are they acknowledging that same-sex sexual activity does exist in all species and is simply on display for all to see at the zoo?

    Honestly, based solely on the words on that t-shirt, I would have no idea what they were actually trying to say.

  • This kind of display dispels the notion that there some Christians do not belong in the national zoo!
