The wrong side of history


When the supreme court ruled in favor of gay marriage on Friday, June 26, our screens seemed to be filled with rainbows and slogans like #lovewins. It certainly depends who your Facebook “friends” are, but for us at Yellow Scene, the ruling was met with joy from most corners. We say “most,” because there always the loudmouthed dissenters. From Fox News to Glenn Beck, from churches to regular conservative households, hateful messages were spewed out, usually disguised as religious passion. It isn’t. Real Christians know the definition of love under the teachings of Jesus. They also know what progress is and, both tragically and amusingly, these dinosaurs are firmly on the wrong side of history. Allow us to illustrate that very thing.W

Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, candidate for the Republican presidential nomination

Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the almighty creator and that I have been chosen to do so by providence.
Adolf Hitler

Homosexuality is consistently condemned in the strongest possible terms … Science proves living a homosexual lifestyle is devastating, medically and psychologically. It’s not loving the encourage people to violate God’s moral law, especially when the consequences are so destructive. Now we’re sending a morally confused message to our children and grandchildren. God is not pleased.
Gary Cass, Christian Anti-Defamation Commission

The negro is not a human being.
Anti-abolitionist Buckner Payne

The corollary of that principle is that human dignity cannot be taken away by the government. Slaves did not lose their dignity (any more than they lost their humanity) because the government allowed them to be enslaved. Those held in internment camps did not lose their dignity because the government confined them. And those denied governmental benefits certainly do not lose their dignity because the government denies them those benefits. The government cannot bestow dignity, and it cannot take it away.
Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas

Just so you know, the family has been officially and will now be officially redesigned. It has to be defined differently. The term ‘mom and dad’ in the traditional family is over. Now you’re parent one and parent two.
Radio personality Glenn Beck

The Slaves have many rights. The right of life and limb, the right to be fed and clothed, to be nursed when sick, and cared for in old age when they become helplessly infirm. They are rightfully entitled to protection from ill treatment.
From Nellie Norton by Rev. E.W. Warren
