That’s a Feature, Not a Bug

EWN South Africa:

JOHANNESBURG – A group of Christian leaders from KwaZulu-Natal say that they’re opposing the proposed Hate Speech Bill, because it will stop them from preaching that homosexuality is wrong.

The reason there is a furor over hate speech and fake news, is because somebody wants to shut others up.  I’m against hate, and against hateful words.

I am also convinced that some folks have noticed that they’re beginning to lose an argument, and they want to turn off the free speech rights of their neighbors.

That’s wrong in South Africa, and it’s wrong in America.

By the way, I’m not necessarily in support of what these preachers are saying. I just know they should have the right to say it. That goes for people who want to speak out in favor of homosexuality as well.

    When they use something for virtue signalling that thing is internally promoted to virtuous and opposition becomes a sin. Their behavior becomes “homosexuality is a virtue.” And religiously protect that idea.

    Honestly with homosexuality calling it a virtue isn’t that harmful.. at least compared to virtue signalling by supporting thugs and cop killers, as either makes damaging civilization itself a virtue.

    I looked at the site for the “thousands more” signatories, and they’re just a number.
