More on the "LJ Inquisition" and the group WFI...

NOTE: If you are not an LJ member, or have just been hiding under a rock, some of the stuff in this post is going to be news to you. I have put lots of hyper-links (links) in here, so if you have no clue what is going on, you can get cought up.

Also, all links "should" open as new windows.

So tonight I was surfing the internet after Mr. Berkowitz replyed to the LJ Community about, as star_cabaret called it the "LJ Inquisition", I found a new article on CNET. The article mostly about LJ's apology, did have two paragraphs that really strikes me. Now I have no clue if this person who is a representative of WFI (Warriors for Innocence) views are representative of the WFI group as a whole or just this one person, but never less it made me chring just a little (ok a lot).

LiveJournal has said it was responding to complaints from groups, including one called Warriors for Innocence. A representative from the group, who gave her name only as "Sues," said in an e-mail Thursday that "we did not knowingly report any 'fandom' communities or role-playing journals."

In posts to her personal blog, Sues describes herself as an ardent conservative who views homosexuality as "sick" and a "twisted agenda" and lumps gays and lesbians into the same category as pedophiles and rapists.

So again no clue if "Sues" views represent the WFI group as a whole, but there is nothing like being lumped in with pedophiles and rapists. Really to tell the truth, this type of thinking makes me very mad.

I really do not care if you think that being gay is "sick" and/or a "twisted agenda" but please do not think that just because we like someone of the same sex that we automatically "Pedophiles" and "Rapists". That is just not true and is about as far from the truth as you can get. PERIOD!
