Gay People Are Gods: Protecting LGBT Communities Is a Divine Right

hardie2

The author, Mark Charles Hardie, is a candidate for United States Senate in California (2016).

Huffington Post: It was night time. An openly gay man was walking alone down 10th Street in the crime-ridden section of Long Beach, California. Wearing neon red parachute pants, a bright pink polo shirt, the latest Air Jordan shoes, and sporting a white Kangol hat, he looked like a cross between Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Prince. It was the early 1980s.
I was nine years old, and I knew this gay man from around my neighborhood. He was the first gay person I’d ever met.
As this man walked towards the intersection of Orange Avenue, suddenly he was bum rushed by ten local gang members. They formed a tight circle around him, knocked off his hat, and punched him around like boxer Floyd Mayweather punching Manny Pacquiao.
The gay man stumbled to the hard concrete and the gangsters began to violently stomp him into the cement; yelling and screaming with blind rage.
“Stay out of our hood, you flaming ‘F’!” The gangbangers used the demeaning F-word to refer to members of the gay community.
While I watched the gay-bashing, my nine year old mind could not process the nature of the bitter homophobic juggernaut that compelled these hardcore thugs to beat down a helpless homosexual man.
In my neighborhood everyone knew that “snitches get stitches” and “if you open your mouth, a gun goes in your mouth”. These colorful ghetto code phrases mean that one must never intervene in a fight and never report crimes to the police. In my low-income housing project, the police were considered enemies and the gang members were considered friends.
Terrified by the savagery and afraid of these hoodlums, I ran away from this episode of anti-gay violence. Meanwhile, the gay man was thug-jacked and booty-crushed. No one intervened and I heard the man nearly died.
On the same night of this beating, I watched a video tape of Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous “I have a dream speech.” I distinctly remember Dr. King oozing moral courage and socio-political power as he continually described his compassionate dream of equality and justice. A tear rolled down my face as I listened to the speech.
Today, as I reflect upon the pain inflicted on this particular gay man, I am inspired with a new dream — not only an aspiration for LGBT equality — but a dream of gay empowerment. For without power there can be no true security or freedom of choice.
I have a dream today that gay people and lesbians will have a vested and inalienable right to universal marriage equality backed by the power of law. Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.
Today, in a major step towards fulfilling this lofty dream of social justice, I submitted an innovative proposal to the offices of California State Senator Mark Leno and California Assembly Member David Chiu.
My proposal calls for the creation of “California LGBT Police Departments” throughout the Golden State. These police departments, funded by the state, would be staffed exclusively by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender police officers. The goals of these proposed “LGBT Squads” are to better serve communities while minimizing troubling incidents of anti-gay violence.
I believe it is important for heterosexual people and homosexual people to love and respect one another regardless of sexual orientation or transgender identity. However, it is also vital for LGBT communities to wield police power backed by the force of law. In other words, we must not only demand “gay rights,” but we must also demand “gay power.”
As I think back on the savage episode of anti-gay bashing I witnessed as a small boy, I now understand that LGBT communities worldwide must be empowered with the weapons to fight for justice.
This essay is humbly dedicated to the memory of Matthew Shepard (December 1, 1976–October 12, 1998).

Call me a bigot if you want, but I disagree with the “equal rights to gays” because it’s been proven that being gay in over 90% of the people is by CHOICE and not by genetic design. (There are some genetic circumstances, but they are very few). My point is, we should not have laws for what we “chose” that is outside the natural occurrence that God gave us, which is man and woman as a married couple. The bible SPECIFICALLY states to “shun” the “gay” activities. (Meaning don’t do that). Giving equal rights to Gays is like giving equal… Read more »

I don’t care if anyone is gay. I don’t care if it is a choice, genetics, or the damaged water we now consume. Just have some dignity and keep it behind your bedroom door. I feel the same for any kind of sex, it is personal. Being such a small minority and being so vocal and demanding will not gain you much, and certainly won’t change how people think. I have worked with sèveral gays, and everyone kept it personal and with dignity. It wasn’t a secret and they never felt intimidated, they were just classy about it. With all… Read more »

Being gay is just one of many reasons solitary victims are singled out for senseless beatings, muggings, shooting, the whole gauntlet of crimes that happen to all. Being gay can just as easily be a coincidental factor.
I do believe law enforcement already treats all incidents the same, and probably with equal emotional detachment.

Has this person ever heard of Sodom and Gomarrah? This is a spiritual issue it is not now nor has it ever been a legal issue. Marriage is an institution created by God Almighty, the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth and everything therein. God Almighty is the life of every living thing and the breath of ALL mankind. God destroyed the earth with a flood after the first three-thousand years because of mankinds wickedness. He saved Noah and his immediate family. During the next three thousand years and before the birth of Jesus Christ, he destroyed the city… Read more »

The article states: “Gay marriage is not only a civil right to be enacted by governments, but it is a fundamental human right bestowed by the almighty hands of God.” I state: What is it that the increasingly accepting world of this sinful behavior, which is clearly prohibited numerous times in Scripture as being an abomination to a Holy God, does not understand? Oh, never mind; those who accept this “lifestyle choice” have, in their own little ignorant and reprobate minds, designed a god to their own liking! The judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah will be considered ‘light’ compared to… Read more »

So he thinks there should be a homo police farce in Kali?
I’ve seen photos of the San Fransicko police….. they’ve already got one!
(the pic of the ‘chief’ with her oversized hat is hilarious)
I think Markie Maypo (remember him? … “I want my Maypo!” he wailed) must have been patterned after a Libtard….. or a homo….. or some other ‘disenchanted’ minority member.

He watched an obviously gay man being brutalized by a gang of totally unsympathetic guys, ran in terror, then watched MLK’s most famous speech the very same day. Then he cried because he was a little boy and couldn’t understand all this and yet somehow did.
Isn’t he laying on the melodrama a little thick?

Author uses too many cliches in his account of the queer getting thugged. Did he research if there was a police report of the incident?
Always, always verify stories before accepting them as real and true.

Did anyone else notice the way the mugged homosexual was dressed? I can only assume “he” was trolling for a beating and got more than he bargained for. Common Sense 101-you DON’T go for a stroll through a neighborhood dressed like THAT without expecting what “he” got. “He” was not just a homosexual,he was a STUPID homosexual.

How does one go about ‘cashing out’ of this world?! Oh, I don’t mean what that sounds like…what I mean is that “I’ve had enough, and I just can’t take it anymore.”! No, that sounds too melodramatic. Never mind….I’ll see you all tomorrow…Eli

That’s easy, Eli…..
First, take a trip to Long Beach, Californicate…..
Wear some neon red parachute pants (are those the ones that MC Hammer used to wear?)….
…. bright pink polo shirt……
….. a white Kangol hat (whatever the Hell that is)…
and then take a stroll down Orange Avenue, humming a happy tune…..
Shouldn’t take too long.
(I, too, have been around for a long time. I used to read a lot of science fiction stuff….. but today’s “reality” is beyond even that!)

what an idiot! next thing you know, he’ll push for muslims to have sharia law in CA because it’s their ‘allah-given right’. Anyone who votes for this fool needs their head examined.

Frankly, this sounds like a man who is taking his orders from devils. What he proposes is nothing short of a psychotic zealotry which would lead to a drastic increase in sex crimes and disease as likely wouldn’t be seen in history… if the “gaystapo” had full police backing or ran departments themselves, we would see happen to normal striahgt folk what stalin did to dissenters, what mao did to those who opposed him, what pol pot did to those that disagreed. This would in no way help anyone, and would serve to destroy and annihilate the lives of many.

This world today is such a screwed up mess that it breaks my heart for the children . I don’t care about the adults they made their choices live with it ! They ( 2 men 2 women ) can’t have children with out something from the opposite sex ! God loves the person but hates the sin so to say God gave them the right to be gay and marry is blasphemy against a Holy God . The body of man & woman are made to work together and create life , minus nothing or plus something . If… Read more »

Interesting perspective. You saw a wrong as a nine year old, so that is why you use that as a reason to justify something else that is seen by others as wrong. I appreciate your candor.
