The left destroys everything it touches. And pretty soon they will be destroying each other. It's what they do.
I saw this recent headline from an article on MSN:
Climate activists disrupt London Pride march to protest corporate sponsorship
You'd think these groups would co-ordinate better with each other.
I don't think they can. Here's the story.
The technicolor, dance-filled London Pride march briefly came to a halt Saturday as climate activists blocked a Coca-Cola float to protest event organizers accepting sponsorship money from “high-polluting industries.”
Seven members of the group Just Stop Oil were arrested for public nuisance offenses, police said.
The demonstration was the latest in a long line of actions by the group to stop traffic or disrupt high profile events as part of its campaign to stop new oil and gas projects. Two protesters were arrested earlier in the week after charging onto the pitch of the Ashes Test cricket match at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London.
“These partnerships embarrass the LGBTQ+ community at a time when much of the cultural world is rejecting ties to these toxic industries,” the group said. “High-polluting industries and the banks that fund them now see Pride as a useful vehicle for sanitizing their reputations, waving rainbow flags in one hand whilst accelerating social collapse with the other.”
That last part, they got right.
Notice what they said: banks and industries see the pride movement as "a useful vehicle for sanitizing their reputations, waving rainbow flags in one hand whilst accelerating social collapse with the other."
“Pride is a protest and pride is a celebration,” De'Athe-Morris said. “Anyone who tries to disrupt that protest and parade is really letting down those people who use this space once a year to come together to celebrate and protest for those rights.”
Some thoughts from Cogny here:
The problem is bigger than that. People in these movements are passionate about making their points. They just don't always see that their own actions are at least as destructive as the things they're protesting.
From a Christian prespective, it would be nice to be able to sit back and enjoy the show. But that is not an option for the church
The pride movement long ago served its original purpose, which was to de-vilify homosexual behavior as unacceptable in our society. It seems long ago already that they acheived that end.
And however self-destructive you might think these behaviors are, it seems in a pluralistic society, they've already achieved a status of "live and let live."
But if something is off, it won't be satisfied with the same old, same old. Perversions always need a greater and greater endorphin high to exist. Or they eventually die. But the death is painful.
And there are some in the gay community that are getting frustrated with the transgender movement.
I said 30 years ago that "equality" was not their end goal. Their end goal was eventually to be able to muzzle the opposition and to be able to villify any who would even dare to suggest their behavior is wrong.
Sow to the wind, reap to the whirlwind. I've been told (but only indirectly, so I can't state it as fact - yet) that there are many in the gay/lesbian community who think the whole LGBTQ2SP++++ movement has gone way too far.
Sometimes, these things have a way of "working themselves out."
Unfortunately, at this point, as a society, the only way for this to course-correct is if we sit back and watch them eat their own.
Or hit our knees and pray for revival. There's always that.
