It is here: “Silence will be interpreted as disapproval”

As I pointed out to our Sunday School class when doing a few lessons on Refuting Pro-Gay Theology, there is no more fence.  By that I mean that the Left is forcing you to pick a side.  No more mushy middle when you can give lip service to the word of God yet not have it cost you anything.

Here is the clearest example I’ve seen: DOJ on ‘gays’: ‘silence will be interpreted as disapproval’ (text below).  Note that DOJ = Department of Justice.  Let me repeat that: Department of Justice.  You know, the people charged with executing justice in the land.

You can thank the false teachers and theologically Liberal “Christians” for this.  You would think that they would at least pretend to care about religious freedom, but they don’t even offer the mildest rebuke.  And why would they?  When your religion is worshiping the government then you don’t care if they take away real religious freedom.

Read it carefully.  This is where things are going.  You can’t just “tolerate” these behaviors, you must actively affirm them — or else.

Following are excerpts from the “DOJ Pride” decree. When it comes to “LGBT” employees, managers are instructed:

“DON’T judge or remain silent. Silence will be interpreted as disapproval.” (Italics mine)

That’s a threat.

And not even a subtle one.

Got it? For Christians and other morals-minded federal employees, it’s no longer enough to just shut up and “stay in the closet” – to live your life in silent recognition of biblical principles (which, by itself, is unlawful constraint). When it comes to mandatory celebration of homosexual and cross-dressing behaviors, “silence will be interpreted as disapproval.”

This lawless administration is now bullying federal employees – against their will – to affirm sexual behaviors that every major world religion, thousands of years of history and uncompromising human biology reject.

Somewhere, right now, George Orwell is smiling.

The directive includes a quote from a “gay” federal employee to rationalize justification: “Ideally, I’d love to hear and see support from supervisors, so it’s clear that there aren’t just policies on paper. Silence seems like disapproval. There’s still an atmosphere of LGBT issues not being appropriate for the workplace (particularly for transgender people), or that people who bring it up are trying to rock the boat.”

Of course there’s “still an atmosphere of LGBT issues not being appropriate for the workplace.” When well over half of federal employees, half the country and most of the world still acknowledge objective sexual morality (and immorality), “the workplace,” especially the federal workplace, should, at the very least, remain neutral on these highly controversial and behavior-centric issues.

Still, to borrow from self-styled “queer activist,” anti-Christian bigot and Obama buddy Dan Savage, “it gets better”:

“DO assume that LGBT employees and their allies are listening to what you’re saying (whether in a meeting or around the proverbial water cooler) and will read what you’re writing (whether in a casual email or in a formal document), and make sure the language you use is inclusive and respectful.”

Is this the DOJ or the KGB? “[A]ssume that LGBT employees are listening …”? And what are “LGBT allies”? If you disagree with the homosexual activist political agenda, does that make you the enemy?

Yes, in any workplace, language should remain professional, but who defines what’s “inclusive”? Who decides what’s “respectful”? If asked about “LGBT issues,” for instance, can a Christian employee answer honestly: “I believe the Bible. I believe that God designed sex to be shared between husband and wife within the bonds of marriage”? Or is that grounds for termination?

Here are some more DOs:

DO “Attend LGBT events sponsored by DOJ Pride and/or the Department, and invite (but don’t require) others to join you.”

DO “Display a symbol in your office (DOJ Pride sticker, copy of this brochure, etc.) indicating that it is a ‘safe space.'”

Are you kidding? Does this administration really think it’s legal to induce managers to “attend LGBT events,” or to “display pride stickers” against their will? That’s compulsory expression. That’s viewpoint discrimination.

That’s unconstitutional.

But there’s more:

“DO use inclusive words like ‘partner,’ ‘significant other’ or ‘spouse’ rather than gender-specific terms like ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ (for example, in invitations to office parties or when asking a new employee about his/her home life).”

Oh, brother.

Sorry. Oh, gender-neutral sibling.

“DO use a transgender person’s chosen name and the pronoun that is consistent with the person’s self-identified gender.”

In other words, lie. Engage in corporate delusion.

“DO deal with offensive jokes and comments forcefully and swiftly when presented with evidence that they have occurred in the workplace.”

“DO communicate a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate jokes and comments, including those pertaining to a person’s sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.”

Who gets to decide what’s an “inappropriate joke [or] comment”? I thought we had a Constitution for that. It sure ain’t Big Brother Barack. Sure, I get it, it’s probably better not to start your work day with: “A lesbian, a tranny and two gays walk into a bath house …” but still, “no law … abridging the freedom of speech,” means no law. No matter how much Obama wishes it so, we don’t leave our constitutional rights at the federal workplace door.

The DOJ edict even addresses cross-dressing man woes:

“As a transgender woman [that’s a man in a skirt], I want people to understand that I’m real. I want to be recognized as the gender I really am [again, you’re a man in a skirt]. Yes, there was awkwardness with pronouns at first for folks who knew me before the transition. But it hurts when several years later people still use the wrong pronouns. And just imagine if people were constantly debating YOUR bathroom privileges. Imagine how humiliating that would be.”

Tell you what, buddy: I won’t “debate YOUR bathroom privileges” if you return to this planet. You’d better stay the heck out of the ladies room while my wife or two daughters are in there; otherwise, we have a problem. Women have an absolute right not be sexually harassed in the workplace – a right to privacy when using the facilities. To constantly worry whether a gender-confused, cross-dressing man is going to invade her privacy creates a hostile work environment.

  1. This is one of the reasons I got fed up with being an FAA supervisor after 10 years and went back to just being a controller. And that was at the end of 1995! By then we had to go to all sorts of training which was to indoctrinate us into the idea that homosexual behavior was just another lifestyle choice and that we should be sanctioning it. I remember the “wheel” of diversity which showed “skin color,” “race,” “religion,” “gender,” “age,” and “sexual orientation.” I challenged the stupid wheel in class, saying that homosexual behavior was not the same as the other items, that except for religion all were intrinsic to the every individual and that religion was a philosophical worldview, whereas sexual “orientation” was a behavioral choice. The instructor and over half of the class were very upset at me. I got a low mark for “attitude” and my manager was a bit peeved at the report. And that was just about the same time that the FAA started celebrating “Pride” days at all their national and regional HQs.

  2. How many Christians do you suppose will take the stand that will, eventually hurt? It’s easy to complain, “It’s a sin” as long as no one is taking away your job or your house or … Will we still stand then?

    (And, given the complete collapse of the English language — evidence “marriage”, “rights”, “hypocrite”, “Christian”, etc. — I have to wonder if the Department of Justice has taken a different meaning on “executing justice” as in “putting it to death”. Just wondering, you know?)

  3. I am somewhat ambivalent about homosexual/culture matters as I feel it is about personal ethics and choice. However, I am unhappy when the DOJ forgets Western Culture and the building blocks of law one of which is: ” qui tacet consentire videtur” (he who is silent tends to agree). This is a legal construct which was adopted by every Western Culture since Rome and yet the “wise fools” of our State choose to act as if it is not so. Calling themselves wise, they became as fools. St. Paul to the Romans (and I am familiar with the context).

  4. Sadly, this does not surprise me one bit. The warning signs have been clanging for over a decade. The pro-homosexual radical agenda cannot exist alongside Christian morality and Bible truth. Therefore, as they say via the Borg in the Star Trek series, “resistance is futile.” One has to succumb to one worldview or the other. The trifecta evil that includes the radical homosexual agenda, radical Islam and pro-death to babies is preferred by the crazy left because they can throw it in with the progressivism/socialism/communism/totalitarianism types of oppression in order to squelch what and Whom they really hate – Jesus Christ and Him crucified. They don’t want any recognition of Christ as Redeemer because His Way points out the evil of all of their ways when it comes to life on this earth.

    The end times series of films which include Revelation and Judgment portray the Christians as “haters.” That is exactly the mantra that is being thrown out there by this awful BADministration, the media, and most of the liberal schools, colleges, and universities. It is no wonder that the minds that used to be called “a terrible thing to waste” have been indoctrinated into wrong thinking that leads to contempt for those who follow God, believe in Christ, and study the wisdom and knowledge contained in the Bible.

    Great post Neil! I am linking to you today because more people need to wake up and smell the deception of the radical homosexual agenda and all those who ignorantly support it!
