Lying, coercing, manipulating, defrauding, and scheming — for marriage equality!

We all know the score.

This is how the game is played.

They lie, and cooperate with lies, and become willing participants in things that are very likely to be lies, and they do it all for the greater good.

Did you hear about the infamous gay bashing birthday party RSVP from earlier this week? The story set social media on fire. Two gay dads threw a tie dye party for their 7-year-old daughter, Sophia, and invited all of the neighborhood children over to celebrate. But some anti-gay mother (probably a Christian, as countless people on Facebook and Twitter observed) declined the invitation, and she did so in the rudest way possible. Rather than simply offering a polite ‘sorry, we can’t make it,’ she jotted down a vicious anti-gay rant, and sent it to Sophia’s dads.

The note said: “Tommy will NOT attend. I do not believe in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your “lifestyle.” I’m sorry Sophia has to grow up this way.”

When I first saw this story, my initial thought was: who in God’s name throws tie dye parties anymore?

Then my second thought was: how long before we find out that this entire story is a hoax? I told my wife it would be two weeks. I was wrong. It took one week. A couple of days ago, the inevitable inevitably happened. We discovered that the Tale of the Anti Gay RSVP was, in fact, a complete fabrication, cooked up by a morning radio show.

Don’t worry, they say they only wanted to “start a conversation.”

Mission accomplished. Conversation started.

Well, it wasn’t so much a ‘conversation’ as it was an excuse for a bunch of nincompoops to spew tired old anti-Christian and anti-conservative clichés – but I guess that’s what passes for dialogue these days.

You know, I’m beginning to suspect that the folks who spread these fraudulent parables of “anti-gay bias” might be doing it on purpose.

I’m starting to suspect that these people aren’t as gullible as they pretend to be.

I might be onto something.

Look at Jezebel’s post on the bigoted birthday snub: Gay Dads Receive Mean, Homophobic RSVP to Their Kid’s Birthday Party. The writer rants about this “mean” woman, and reports the perceived “facts” of the case. Then, in the second to last paragraph, she says this: “Of course, this note could be a fake just to get us all frothing and get this radio station’s name in the news. It kind of seems fake.”

She thinks it “seems fake” YET SHE SPREAD THE STORY ANYWAY.

Hey, Lindy West, if you think the story is fake, howza ’bout tossing an “allegedly” into that title? Or maybe you should, I dunno, just not intentionally reiterate an anecdote you suspect to be false.

It’s called “integrity.” Look into it sometime.

But the false narrative is the primary weapon in the arsenal of the progressive. Maybe it’s their only weapon. In no area is this more pronounced or prevalent than in the realm of “gay rights.” The gay rights movement is built on mischaracterizations, fabrications, and outright lies. They don’t always come up with the lie — this one originated as nothing more than a radio station’s cheap publicity stunt — but they will use it for their benefit.

As the Jezebel writer said, in a stunning admission: “But, fake or not, “Beth”‘s homophobic mindset is real and common and gross. So froth away.”

Translation: “I know this didn’t happen, but I’m sure things like it HAVE happened, so go ahead and get all riled up about a fairy tale. I’m not interested in reality, only emotion. Use this to feed your anger at the people who disagree with our position on this topic.”

This incident happens only a couple of months after a lesbian waitress in New Jersey took to the internet to complain about an anti-gay note left on a receipt. The note said: “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle.” In the surprise twist ending that was neither surprising nor twisty, it eventually came out that the whole thing was a hoax. The waitress made it up.

Of course she made it up.

“I can’t tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle”? Really? Why would the customer even know her “lifestyle” in the first place? As a lesbian, at what point in taking someone’s food order and refilling their Cokes do you find an opportunity to inform them of your sexual affinity for other women?

But the people who reposted this garbage on their Facebook and Twitter feeds didn’t bother asking that question. And the media outlets that reported it didn’t bother fact checking any aspect of the story until it began to unravel on its own.

That’s because the truth is irrelevant here.

It’s all about the narrative. That’s it.

In fact, instances of fake gay bashing and fabricated homophobic “hate crimes” are so common that I’d need to drag this on for 20 pages just to come close to listing all of the more recent cases. Here’s a good one. A lesbian couple spray painted the phrase “kill the gay” on their own garage. Because “kill the gay” is something that traditional marriage advocates frequently say.

And another.

And another.

And another.

And another.

And another.

And another.

And another.

And another.

I’m sure, as we speak, there’s yet another wannabe victim on some liberal arts campus somewhere busily planning a biased assault on themselves. And I’m just as sure that gay rights advocates will seize on their unlikely fable and use it to turn their opposition into straw men who refuse to tip lesbians.

But there’s more than one way to construct a narrative. Bald faced lying is simply one strategy.

Mythologizing can be even more effective.

Right in front of our eyes, out in the open, they make men into myths.

They made a marginal, obscure, unremarkable, aging NBA benchwarmer into a “historic” sports legend. Jason Collins was morphed into Jackie Robinson — which is about as absurd as attempting to turn Billy Ripken into Babe Ruth.

As you recall, Jason Collins — in a ploy to buy himself a few more years of being drastically overpaid by the NBA — came out of the closet last year. The media erupted in applause, and everyone from Hollywood celebrities to the President of the United States of America chimed in to mark the occasion.

The stage was set for the progressive narrative.

They had their hero, now they needed to make him into a victim. Right on cue, as the new season rolled around and, shockingly, no team jumped at the opportunity to hire a bench riding media-spectacle, the gentle insinuations of “bias” began to surface. The New York Times published an article, Jason Collins, Openly Gay and Still Unsigned, Waits and Wonders. The writer pontificates: “The question Collins has to ponder is why he has not been signed as a free agent.”

Uh, could it be that he’s 35 and averages under 4 points a game? Could it be that teams would rather pay a younger guy less money for more production than an older guy more money for less production? Maybe. Or maybe, as the article suggests, something “sinister” is afoot. Collins, for his part, thinks that’s “possible,” but he wouldn’t want to speculate (awfully charitable of you, Jason).

And now the NFL has become another staging ground for the gay victimhood mythology. It was inevitable. As soon as Michael Sam announced his sexual habits publicly, we knew what would come next. He’ll be a victim, even if he’s not. NFL teams are in a lose-lose predicament. They can draft him higher than he deserves to be drafted, and find themselves under the close scrutiny of the media and gay rights organizations who are waiting eagerly for any example of gay discrimination in the locker room or on the field. Or NFL clubs can refuse to distract their entire team for the sake of winning points with progressives by drafting an undersized, middle round defensive prospect, and be accused of “homophobia” and “bigotry” because of it.

It doesn’t matter what happens next. Michael Sam will be a victim. Michael Sam will be what the narrative needs him to be. He is now another character in a fictitious drama, written and produced by agenda-driven liars and schemers.

It used to take centuries to make a man into a legend. Now it happens overnight.

Of course, no blog post about fake gay rights narratives would be complete without mentioning the Mother of All Narratives. The narrative which quickly became gospel; which became engrained in the public conscience; which led to volumes and volumes of legislation; which, quite literally, changed the course of modern history.

Matthew Shepard.

Matthew Shepard, the young gay man, brutally slaughtered 15 years ago. Murdered and tortured for being gay.

At least, that’s the narrative.

The reality, though still violent and tragic, is likely quite different from the fable we’ve been sold. It was ten years ago that ABC ran a story debunking many of the lies surrounding the Shepard case. Their investigation found that the young man was killed by two druggies who weren’t in the throes of homophobic hysteria, but rather meth-induced rage. He was killed because of drugs, not sexuality.

A sad story, for sure, but not one that’s useful to the narrative.

So the reporters behind the ABC piece were attacked and vilified for their bigoted act of honest journalism, and the whole ordeal was pushed under the proverbial rug.

Until a few months ago, when an openly gay journalist named Stephen Jimenez published a book detailing the findings of his decade-long investigation into the Shepard murder. He claims that Shepard’s killer was also Shepard’s former gay lover, and that both men were drug addicts. The killing occurred after a drug-related dispute.

Still sad.  Still terrible. But not helpful to the narrative.

Unlike the fictitious saga that swept through the nation before the police had even arrested the suspects, the revelations by Jimenez and ABC come after a thoughtful analysis of the facts. Jimenez’s book cites over 100 named sources, and references information that was actually included in the initial police reports — like the fact that Shepard’s killer was a known bisexual.

The Shepard story, as it’s been told, is a lie.

But it’s a convenient lie. A useful lie. A Lie for the Greater Good.

So it’s a lie they’ll keep telling. Like all of the other lies they tell.

It’s not that they hate the truth — it’s just that they can’t find a place for it in the story.

  1. Michael Sam, the number one defensive player in the NCAA is going to shortly be a victim? How you figure?

  2. David says:

    It is too bad the left had to make stuff up when all they have to do is copy and paste the hate filled filth written by Christians in comments all over the Internet. Not to mention the good folks in Kansas and now Arizona who some how think that Jesus would want them to turn away people’s business or services for being gay. There really are plenty of examples.
    I miss my faith. I miss believing in God and I miss the wonderful feeling it is to know that His spirit lives in me. But it’s dead now. I don’t buy the Christian doctrine. I found myself calling BS on the church one too many times and I had to walk away and reevaluate. It’s as if the stuff in red letters is ignored. You can’t cherry pick the Word and while I kept looking for a way to make it all work I realized that’s exactly what the church has done. There are gospels written before the ones we call holy that were left out because they didn’t fit the narrative. There are entire chapters of rules and laws that we don’t adhere to but then others we hold dear to our hearts out of convenience. It’s easy not to be gay when you’re wired straight. It’s hard not to wear blended fabrics. One after the other it all seemed just too much to overcome.
    I’m sure you write some blog posts that are more focused on Jesus and how much grace and love he showed the outcasts of society. I’m not going through your archives but I’ll assume you do. You seem like a thoughtful guy. But I read the above and it’s just another entry of us vs them. More ammo against the left for Christians to dwell on and allow their very unChristlike feelings to boil over. Get over it. Gays have been around forever. They’ve been treated like garbage forever by Muslims, communists, Christians, capitalists and everything in between. It’s a sad thing that self rightous liberal douchbags are the champions of the outcasts and the followers of Christ are the new Pharisees/Sadducees.

    • Bonnie Clark says:

      I’m sorry you have lost your faith. I hope you find it again.
      I have embraced the fact that I don’t know everything and just love my fellow humans.
      I am a Christian and I really only know 2 things in this world:
      there is a God – and I ain’t Him.

    • I could care less about your faith, or the fact that you lost it because you let imperfect human beings turn you away from a source of love and comfort you found. But I will say this, just because some Christians don’t follow all the doctrines of the bible shouldn’t have turned you away from God, you allowed that. You sought an excuse to turn away, no hypocrisy on the part of other Christians did that. You did, so stop whining about your lost faith.

      As for your argument about Kansas and Arizona being examples of real hatred because they want the right to refuse service to gays if it violates their faith, now I’m calling BS on you. You can go feel superior somewhere else. The fact is Americans have always had the right to choose who they associate with and provide services to, that is until the civil rights act was passed. While I agree the civil rights act should have been passed to insure equality in job hiring, voting, and other aspects of American life, mandating acceptance of social interaction went to far.

      Now that is being used as a hammer for anyone who thinks society should accept them as they choose to be. And that in itself is moronic, not to mention it’s not practiced under law equally for all. If you don’t believe me try creating the Caucasian College Fund or the Caucasian Entertainment Network and tell me how that works out for you. Try creating a Straight Pride Parade and see if you don’t get called a homophobic bigot. This double standard of societal acceptance than runs only one is asinine and the height of hypocrisy.

      Contrary to popular belief, and the “pro-gay” narrative, it’s not just Christians who have a problem with gays marriage. There are millions of non-Christians who are against gay marriage as well, and I am partially one of them. I support gay marriage, I support the right for a gay couple to have the same right as a straight couple when it comes to life situations and taxes, but only as civil unions. For gays to try and make government force churches to marry them is bull crap and violates the constitutional rights of religious Americans. The first Amendment reads in part “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” and by forcing churches by mandate of law as gays want is actually a violation of the constitution right of all religious people. The only exceptions to constitutional rights to express religious views is when those rights physically endanger someone else. Last time I checked, having someone be told “I disapprove of your way of life” is not physically endangering anyway.

      Do I think gays should be able to marry? Yes. But only through civil Unions and through churches that decide to perform marriages of their own accord. Until there is a stop to the attempts of forcing churches through government mandate to perform marriages I won’t support gay marriage.
      Do I think gay couples should have the same rights under the law as straight couples when it comes to legal matters and taxes and even benefits? Yes. But not until the gay rights issue stops being about forced acceptance of an alternate lifestyle and is actually about equal representation under the law.

      Fact is, government has no issue in the social lives of Americans except where those social issue affect physical well being of others. Being refuse service in a restaurant because you are Gay, Black, Asian, Hispanic, Irish, German Female, Male, Red Headed, Brown headed, whatever is none of the governments business, society itself will correct those who discriminate as it always has. Should government step in when a person is refused a job because those things mentions earlier, hell yes. Because now you are talking about possible physical harm, due to starvation or homelessness due to no jobs.

      This country has become all about feelings. My feelings are hurt, make then stop! That’s why kids these days commit suicide far more often than they did 20 or 30 years ago, because we have become a nation of whining little morons who have forgotten the old saying “sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.” When we started shelter out kids from the real world instead of actually teaching them that the world is a hard place and no one owes you jack, when we started giving out feel good “participation” rewards and started accepting the arguments of parents who get pissed off their stupid kids didn’t get a pizza party because they weren’t smart enough or driven enough to get all “A” like the others who got that pizza party, that’s when American became the worlds bitch. That’s when our society went from hard worker, lift yourself up by your feet, do whatever it takes to provide a better future for our kids to the screw our kids, let me have mine and let them pay the debt in when they grow up, unrealistic expectations generation of whining babies we have today.

        David clearly stated that he could not believe in the Abrahamic God because of the filth and contradictions in the bible, not the behaviours of specific Christians.

        “You sought an excuse to turn away, no hypocrisy on the part of other Christians did that. You did, so stop whining about your lost faith.”

        Angry people readily perceive others as being full of the whines. He gave a serene, perfectly good explanation for why he was no longer a Christian.

        “You sought an excuse”? Er ? You don’t even know anything about this guy. Presumption right from the starting line. Reminds me of people on the net who inform strangers they need to “open their spiritual eyes” with casual ignorance of the maturity of character of those they are speaking to.

      • It’s okay, we whining babies have a problem with the generation of small-minded, opinionated, judgemental and conformist views of our forebears. You came first, it’s probably for the best to consider where you fucked up with us, rather than where we fucked up with you, because we, your children, are your responsibility and entirely your fault. So, rather than complain about gays and the new generation, look back at your life and consider all the things your generation did wrong, because it probably had a whole impact on us, logically speaking… I don’t know why anybody cares anyway, we have much worse issues than gay marriage atm, and I’m a gay man. I’d be a little more concerned with the Syria regime and the Ukraine than whether or not two men love each other and want to put a ring on their fingers.

        • Ned Runders says:

          I have no qualms with gay marriage and believe in true equality, untempered by gender or orientation. However, I myself am becoming increasingly enraged with these frequent lies and rumours, fabricated and circulated for sympathy and, furthermore, to fuel particularly loud and embittered members of the LGBT community’s self-reverent and conceited hostility towards the well-adjusted masses. There are too many embittered people shouting their opinions, most of which boil down to the fact that they have suffered in the past (like any person) and feel that it’s because of individual prejudice and not due to general hostility (let’s face it, some people are pricks) and the embittered LGBT person’s frequently abrasive and self-centred personality being talked back to.

    wow. women and their role in society. An easy topic huh? lol. Patriarchy and the structural systems that keep it going is a topic I am always interested in. I feel like there is a change coming though. More women are slowly starting to take different roles in society. We are finally starting to address issues with pay inequity and really look at how women can adjust the roles put on them by society.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Walsh! I’m so sick of these left-wing “Fairy” tales (pun intended). Even Fox news is getting twisted up with the “Progressive Pity Party!” (I bet they serve whine and cheese). Listen to this one, I go to Fox news website and see this headline “Uganda president signs strict anti-gay law.” The article claims, “The new law goes into effect immediately and calls for first-time offenders to be sentenced to 14 years in jail. It sets life imprisonment as the maximum penalty.” What a whopper! Please Walsh, can you debunk this nonsense? Haven’t heard a peep from Kirk Cameron on this.

    • O Tamandua says:

      Mr. Smithwyk, I have the answer. Let’s send Brielle Goldani from New Jersey over to testify before the government of the land of Idi Amin. I’ll bet you he can sway them just like he hoowin-, er, convinced the New Jersey Senate…maybe RuPaul will go with him:

      “The most dramatic story came from Brielle Goldani, a man living as a woman in Toms River, NJ. Goldani claimed that, as a teenager in 1997, his church in New Jersey sent him to a “conversion therapy” camp in Ohio called True Directions, run by an Assemblies of God church. There Goldani says he was forced to masturbate to heterosexual soft-core pornography, flirt with members of the opposite sex, and submit to electroshock “therapy” and chemical IV injections in order to restore heterosexual inclinations.

      International Healing Foundation Director Christopher Doyle, who testified in opposition to the bill, said afterward, “I was shocked and horrified to hear about such abuse. As a former homosexual and practitioner of Sexual Orientation Change Effort (SOCE) therapy, I had never heard of such inhumane treatment, except from anti-ex-gay activists who often claim that SOCE employs such barbaric methods.”

      Investigation revealed Goldani’s story was fabricated. The Ohio Council of Assembly of God Churches denied the camp ever existed. The Ohio Secretary of State and Attorney General’s office confirmed this. No ethics complaints were ever filed to indicate the existence of such a camp, SOCE practitioners in Ohio had never heard of it, and the current pastor of Goldani’s former church said no one from his church would have been complicit in such a scheme. Instead, Goldani’s testimony was virtually identical to a 1999 movie called I’m a Cheerleader, where the abuse he described occurs at a camp called True Directions.

      The only problem I have with Fred Phelps is that I heard that he is a Calvinist. You know, OSAS. I think that Fred and Westboro hate fags because of what is said about God in Psalm 5:5. Just a hunch. Personally, I believe that there is a difference between civil rights and gay rights. Things like woman allowed to vote, not discriminating against old folks or people of color (not the rainbow people) are civil issues. LGBTB (that’s right LGBT and B) on the other hand is a behavioral and moral issue. Up until around 1968 The American Psychiatric Association manual considered homo sex to be a mental disorder as per section 302.0. The homos put up a fight and had that removed. (LGBT’ers are aggressive and violent folks as per Genesis 19:9) I couldn’t find anything about beastiality in the manual though. Recently 57 year old Mr. Bernard Marsonek fornicated a pit bull and a British Woman by the name of Amanda Rogers divorced her husband and married her Jack Russell terrier. Anyway, beastiality is probably the next perverted thing to come up in the rainbow community to be foisted on the populace which is why I added the extra “B” to LGBT. We truly do live as in the days of Noah. Soon, everything will burn. Hell awaits. As an aside, do the majority of LGBT’ers believe in evolution?.

    so wait, is this blogger denying the existence of bullying/hate crimes done by christians? last i checked christians are one of the main religious groups protesting outside gay marriage ceremonies. There are plenty of cases where Christians and Catholics and practically any religious group, have been shown to be hostile towards gay people. I dont think we should let a handful of fabricated stories dismiss the countless of true hate crimes being done by religious groups.

    • twistedsteel says:

      No, what he’s saying David is: if there ARE so many of these true hate crimes, then why is it that media latch onto the false ones, KNOWING that they’re false? And the simple answer is that they make for more better entertainment.

      Honestly, I think people who are gay should be the ones MOST upset by these fake stories. Just like women who have it harder reporting and being believed when they claim abuse, it does more harm than good. Think about all the people who have been legitimately abused and discriminated against and NOT believed because of some attention seeker and the lazy journalism that exploits them. What if you were assaulted and now nobody believes you because of somebody else who lied about a similar experience that they made up?
