A Story So Righteously Vicious
Only Bryan Fischer
The story of Clay and Harold of Sonoma Co, CA has made the rounds on the web, so you might have already experienced the shock of the story. The 78-page suit (complaint) against the County of Sonoma makes for even more shocking reading.
In a nutshell: Clay Greene, 78, was separated from his long time
partner, Harold Skull, 88, after Harold was hospitalized. BOTH men were
placed in nursing homes, all of their property sold off (even the cats were taken away!), Clay was prevented from seeing Harold and purposely kept unaware of his partner's condition.
Even when Harold died.
The County of Sonoma is now alleging that it was acting on behalf of Harold because there was domestic violence involved. Yeah, right. Look at the Bilerico Project response to the case. The county also described Harold and Clay as "roommates." Are disturbances between roommates considered "domestic" violence? How stupid is the County of Sonoma in saying that this was NOT a case involving gay partners? Do mere roommates have co-joining powers of attorney? Do mere roommates leave all of their property in each other's will? July 16th will be a date for everyone to mark: the case SHOULD receive a great deal of attention. The MSM, however, has failed to report on it at all. Hopefully, the power of the blogosphere will help to produce enough attention.
The roots of the AFA's rabid homophobia go back as far as 1998, with conservative columnist Don Feder's rant in AFA's magazine, AFA Journal:
This is still (barely) a democracy. How many times do we have to say "no" - to domestic-partners ordinances, gay marriage, efforts to coerce the Boy Scouts and public school indoctrination - before the elite takes this resounding negative as an answer?
Enter Bryan Fischer:
It might be worth noting that what I actually suggested is that we impose the same sanctions on those who engage in homosexual behavior as we do on those who engage in intravenous drug abuse, since both pose the same kind of risk of contracting HIV/AIDS. I'd be curious to know what you think should be done with IV drug abusers, because whatever it is, I think the same response should be made to those who engage in homosexual behavior.
