An analysis of FBI statistics on hate crimes committed against homosexuals during the time period 2000-2008 shows that the probability of any individual homosexual being the victim of a hate crime during his or her entire life span is slightly more than one percent. Interestingly,gays are more likely to commit hate crimes against straights than straights are to commit hate crimes against gays. According to the FBI, there are 3.98 hate crimes committed by each million heterosexuals annually against homosexuals, and there are 4.44 hate crimes committed by each million homosexuals annually against heterosexuals.
Violence against homosexuals by others gets all the press, but it is interesting to note that the great majority of anti-gay violence is committed by other gays. The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) is the leading tracker of violence against gays in the United States. According to the NCAVPs statistics on anti-gay violence, 83 percent of all violence committed against gays is carried out by other gays in domestic situations. This does not even count gay-on-gay violence committed outside the home.
This confusion is now pervasive in society, and questioning the agenda is simply not to be tolerated especially among Americas youth.
For example, the classical notion that universities should be arenas for the free exchange of ideas has been completely discarded in the United States. More than three-fourths of U.S. colleges and universities now possess codes of conduct that ban behavior and speech based upon, including many other things,homophobia. The danger that these codes represent to academic freedom far outweighs their usefulness. This has already been amply demonstrated, as many colleges have severely punished students for merely desiring to debate the topic of homosexuality.
The squashing of dissenting views on homosexuality in the classroom has been going on for decades now. In 1991, a student at the University of Michigan announced his intention to establish a counseling program to help homosexuals leave their lifestyle. He was dragged before a panel of university administrators, unanimously found guilty of sexual harassment, and was thrown out of the university. In 2000, the Student Judiciary of Tufts University voted officially to derecognize the Tufts Christian Fellowship (TCF) club for taking into account, for purposes of selecting leaders, the beliefs of a member whose views of Scripture and homosexuality were opposed to their own. The TCF was stripped of funding, not permitted to use the Tufts name, not permitted to meet in any room that required a reservation, and not allowed to advertise or announce any of their events or meetings. In 2011, a Fort Worth, Texas high school student was suspended from school for reportedly saying,Im a Christian, and I dont think being gay is right, during a class discussion. And teachers dont have it any easier. In 2010 a professor at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign was accused of hate speech and relieved of his teaching duties for teaching Catholic doctrine on homosexuality in his Introduction to Catholicism class.
Then you also agree it is perfectly acceptable for people to boycott Amway. In other words, this is a non-story.
