At first glance I thought this was satire, just a clever comment meant to expose liberal hypocrisy. But upon further thought I concluded that, no, this was not satire at all. It was meant to be taken seriously.
I’m referring to a comment posted to one of my YouTube videos which was titled, “London Mayor Cites ‘Limitations’ to Free Speech, After Street Preacher’s Arrest.”
In response to this video, “John Duncan” wrote: “Being a bible street preacher should be made illegal as they often offend LGBT People, they all think that a marriage is between a man and woman only, anyone who is against Gay Marriage should be named and shamed and face a judge in a court, it should be a criminal offence to preach the bible in public, this preacher is a criminal, this is not 1819, it’s 2019, being Gay is ok, well done police officers at arresting another evil bigot, the LGBT Community will agree with me, Bible Street preachers must be forced out of city centres when they preach, LGBT Lessons and Homosexuality must be promoted to children from the age of 4 so they grow up to respect Gay People. And at least Muslims don’t do this as they are peaceful and law abiding citizens and don’t bring up 9/11, Manchester and ISIS as they are not Muslims, Muslims do not kill, Evil People kill. I am not Gay and I am not a Muslim, I am a Liberal and I believe in Love.”
Yes, these are the sincere sentiments of a “liberal” who claims to “believe in Love.” How liberal and how loving! Sentiments like this bring to mind the saying, “With friends like this, who needs enemies?” In this case, “With love like this, who needs hate?”
