camelFirst the Sexual Left said it just wanted “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the military, and we shrugged our shoulders. Then it demanded that homosexual acts be decriminalized and accepted, and society acquiesced. Then it wanted nondiscrimination and equal benefits for homosexual couples, and got it. Then it sought the right to adopt for gay couples, and won. Then it demanded that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” be overturned as unfair, and we went along. Then it pushed for marital status for homosexual couples, and liberal judges said OK. Then it cried discrimination against Christian bakers, florists, and photographers who chose not to participate, and the courts agreed. Then it demanded that anyone who spoke up publicly be ostracized and lose their jobs, and it began happening. Then it demanded that men be allowed to use women’s restrooms, and that those (individuals, cities, and states) who disagreed be punished, and society said fine.

I really want to know: When does it stop? Will these social-deconstructionists ever be satisfied? When does the Sexual Left say “enough“?

Perhaps a more important question is this: When do we?
