Reading the news this morning in the digital way that I now do, I came across the headline in the business section of the Cincinnati Enquirer:
My attention was drawn to the opening words:
Who are the most gay-friendly major employers in Cincinnati? Washington, D.C.-based The Human Rights Campaign is naming names.
In its annual report, the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization graded Fortune 1000 companies and other employers across the nation in five general areas: nondiscrimination policies; employment benefits; demonstrated organizational competency and accountability around LGBT diversity and inclusion; public commitment to LGBT equality; and responsible citizenship.
The problem I have with this intense campaign currently underway in our society is not that some people have a problem with the ethics of sexual activity. People have problems with ethics in many areas. We often know what we should do but fail to do it. The problem is that the LGBT lobby, of which The Human Rights Campaign is clearly a part, will not recognize that there can be problems with the ethics of sexual activity. And clearly, the Cincinnati Enquirer is to some extent promoting this lobby.
My problem is that the LGBT lobby is inconsistent in what they advocate. They demand “diversity and inclusion” – but only for themselves. If they truly believed in diversity and inclusion, they would not, and could not, object if some Fortune 1000 company decided to hire a CEO who believed, and made public, her view that homosexual activity is ethically impermissible. We don’t even have to investigate to know that such a move would be met by the LGBT lobby.
And I doubt that, even now, most of the LGBT lobby would accept another “B” in their collection of letters: one that stands for “bestiality.” And would the Cincinnati Enquirer run the headline “Who are the most bestiality-friendly employers in Cincinnati?”? Not next year, perhaps, but soon, very soon.
