From this week’s “Wisconsin Family Connection”~
Bullying is bullying—and it’s always wrong. Intimidating, harassing, and threatening someone until you scare them into doing what you want is bullying—no matter who’s doing it. And it’s always wrong.
However, those are the tactics of the people who push the homosexual agenda, including those who support same-sex marriage. Whenever people have had the audacity to speak out as pastors, business owners, politicians, or even just individual citizens, the bullying begins. I know; we’ve watched it and been involved with it for years.
In 2006 when our organization was involved in educating people on Wisconsin’s Marriage Protection Amendment that would receive a statewide vote in November that year, we learned just how effective such bullying can be. In September, in the heat of the campaign, our graphic arts designer and web site host, called and told me that her company was immediately dropping us as a customer. We would need to find a different designer and another company to host the Vote Yes for Marriage site. When I asked why, the owner hesitated until I said, “You’re getting threats, aren’t you?” Reluctantly but with some relief she said, “Yes. I’ve been told if we keep doing work for you, those who oppose you will basically run me out of business.” She wasn’t willing to run the risk of losing everything she’d worked for—and she should have never been put in that position. If that’s not bullying, then what is it?
