Pat Boone supported Proposition 8, and opposes the notion that homosexuals should be treated fairly under the law. He recently published a diatribe in which he likens American taxpayers who protest for fair treatment under the law with the terrorists who attacked Mumbai, India.
Boone thinks that tax-paying, church-going, law-abiding, American taxpayers who exercise their First Amendment rights are terrorists.
Boone, of course, is promoting some wacky brand of Christianity that has no basis in Christ's teachings, nor in the fundamental dynamic of every religion: love. We should start referring to Boone's brad of religion as Americanism, because this brand of Christianity practiced by right-wingers, er, wrong-wingers really has taken on a uniquely American bent: loaded with politicism, electoral jingo, and hate. Just like the American wrong-wing has been spewing since the 1950s; and it has little resemblance to actual Christianity.
When I lived in Florida in the mid-1970s, it was popular for wrong-wingers to display the bumper sticker "Kill A Queer For Christ" on their vehicles. Pat Boone's brand of Americanism promotes this sort of behavior, and this sort of behavior leads to violence against homosexuals.
Pat Boone is a menace to American freedom. His brand of hateful Americanism is bad for all living things. These wrong-wingers who wrap themselves in the flag and the christus do as much to hurt America as Saudi-funded terrorists and supply-side theorists.
Boone's brand of hatred promotes violence against those Americans least able to defend themselves, and anti-homosexual rhetoric over the centuries has led to thousands of deaths of people who should be left alone to live their lives in peace.
Boone can say he opposes violence, but his words of hate and intolerance promote violence in every way.
I hope more famous Americans like Brad Pitt, whom Boone denounces in his hateful article, will speak-out in support of the rights of homosexuals.
