A group called “Bash Back” has gained national attention after performing a act of social awakening in response to “Traditional Church’s” unrelenting hate mongering. It is well known that the dogma espoused by “Traditional Churches” targeting Queer folk results in violence and deaths by beatings, burnings, striping and hanging on barb wire ect, ect, ect.
This video produced and distributed by some right wing nutz although highly misrepresentative of Queer concerns is featured with some pride on BB’s web page.
In the begining of this video is the disruption then Bill Oreilly pounces on the occasion to incorrectly link the Sisters, babies, Gay marriage and queer/Trans folk together.
No Bill, most Trans and Queer folk are nearly totally disenfranchised from the mainstream religious Churches thanks to HRC, Barney Frank and ENDA and some gay ministries that allow transgender and queer folk to attend as some sort of conditional gift.
Many Queer folk are honestly not overly concerned with “traditional Marriage”(Prop 8), “Traditional” applying to churches that espouse hate and equally associated with “Marriage” as established by gay and straight Churches.
The Babies and families gathered to show support of the American way of life, freedom. The Sisters who dress in quasi religious garb, do so to make a personal, social or political statement, not explicitly to identify a gender or sexual affinity.
Although I actively protest religions spiritual violence against trans/queer folk I make a conscious effort to do so in ways not so violent as Bash Back with all that leaflet throwing and kissing.
We have the right to voice our opposition to religions affirmation of spiritual violence. No a half loaf is not ok, I refuse to beg or eat crumbs from the floor. If that is all that is offered I will do as before and work for my meal, make a place and eat at a different table.
