MP Scott Brison Christmas Card Draws Bigoted Attacks – Merry Christmas – December 18, 2009

brisonxmas This Holiday greeting card from Liberal MP Scott Brison seems to be drawing a lot of fire and abuse.  L I N K

“The overwhelming response has been very positive,” Brison said from Windsor, N.S. “There’s always a very, very tiny minority of bigots. It’s their problem, it’s not my problem.”

But Matt Mills, editorial director of the gay news group Pink Triangle Press, said it’s a mistake to block homophobes.

“Gay and lesbian people do know that homophobia exists and is expressed all the time,” he said.

“Our approach is that shutting down comments when there are homophobic remarks that come out really just drives that homophobia underground and out of the public eye. It is an exercise, in some ways, in denial. And I don’t think that’s constructive … We can’t fight it if we can’t see it.”

We here at The Cornwall Free News will keep our comments section open as we also wish to expose bigotry when possible.

Season’s greetings to all of our sponsors, readers, and Mr. Brison and St. Pierre.

If Guy Lauzon can send out cards with his family, as I am sure many other politicians have, then there is no problems here with this card going out as far as I am concerned.

Go Scott Brison! Be proud! And shame to all the bigots!

Redefining of the family: “If the homosexuals can succeed in their goal to make gender roles insignificant, then the Biblical definition of family as one husband, one wife, and children becomes meaningless, and can be relegated to the ash heap of outmoded, “medieval” ideas. Family, in the homosexual view, could then be defined as any combination of human beings or animals desired — two lesbians, three women and a man, two men and two dogs–whatever. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where they really want to go. That is the real agenda!” (Rev. Marshall) God’s definition of family: Gen 2:23… Read more »

By the way the meaning of bigotry – a bigot: “a person obstinately wedded to a particular creed”(New Webster Dictionary). Consider the words of Scripture as one spoke to the Lord Jesus Christ: “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets” (Mat… Read more »

How did I know that the great Pastor Tom would have something to say here. I guess both gays and pot smokers are all going to hell. I am quite sick of reading your scriptures. But, here’s some food for thought for you Pastor Tom. Enjoy! Top Ten Reasons to Make Gay Marriage Illegal 01) Being gay is not natural. Real Canadians/Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning. 02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall. 03) Legalizing gay marriage will open… Read more »

Pastor Tom makes it sound like “any combination of human beings or animals” does not a family make. I have few living relatives but a strong group of friends that I consider to be my family. Reconsider the meaning of “family”. If you draw your strength from a group of people (or seek comfort from a pet – who does not think that the company of a dog is not a real relationship) who is to judge how you get by on this earth. Shame to Pastor Tom – does Jesus also not preach love and acceptance?

Pastor Tom is obviously not a religious figure in any way! Perhaps he’s a wannabe. In todays world it’s ludicrous to assume that gays and lesbians shouldn’t marry nor raise children. Gays and lesbians don’t become that way, they are born that way. You might even say that God made them that way. We all know that God works in mysterious ways and it’s too bad that Pastor Tom cannot understand his God! Gays and lesbians have families, make families and are families, we love them just the same. My grandson is gay, do you think that I love him… Read more »

I neve quite understood how certain individuals could compare same sex marriages (or relationships in general) to beastiality, pedophilia.. or just about any type of relationship that is viewed as “unnatural”

What’s wrong with two consenting human adults who love each other?! It is NOTHING like being in love with animal, who doesn’t have the mentality for it, or say a child who does not have the maturity for it.

Come on ppl, there are bigger battles out there, let 2 people who love each other unify their love.. don’t hate.

grimalot WELL DONE, well done, well done! LOLOLOLO I will use this very excellent material in arguments with family members who share the same sentiments as the supposed Pastor noted in your reply.

To you and yours, the very, very best of the Holiday Season!

Stan: I understand my God quite well – His Holy Word declares who He is and what He has done. Your conjecture and opinion is based upon just that – an opinion with out proof. Such opinions based upon human reasoning is worthless, and has no binding authority. God loves sinners enough to send His Holy Son to die on the cross (John 3:16). Those whom God saves He forgives all their sins, but that is not all – He changes their heart and mind and enables them to love holiness, purity, and righteousness. And He enables them to hate… Read more »

And this is where God and Science now separate, Pastor Tom, it has been PROVEN, that being gay/lesbian is not a lifestyle CHOICE, it is a part of that person. They were BORN that way. This was not a choice that they just happened to turn around and say “whoops, I’m Gay/Lesbian” one day. Therefore they are not sinners so far as I am concerned. You’re talking about a book that was written 2000 years ago, where society just did not have as much of an understanding of the way’s others were by comparison to today. As well, the book,… Read more »

Pastor Tom: You say my “conjecture and opinion is based upon an opinion without proof. Such opinions based upon human reasoning are worthless and have no binding authority”. I know that God did not write the Bible, it was written by humans perhaps thousands of years before Christ came on the scene. So why do you call it “Gods Book”? Have you ever heard God talking to you? Have you ever met God? No? Then your God is a God of your imagination, a God of your opinion (without proof). You say that wicked people will not inherit the Kingdom… Read more »

Top Ten Reasons to Make Gay Marriage Illegal in America 01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning. 02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall. 03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract. 04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all like many… Read more »

As well Pastor Tom, here is some more interesting information about religion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjGkRFFBd0A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_E0vfP79yE&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyXIeB1qI6w&feature=related Its interesting, but all of your theories are basically debunked. Fact is, being Gay/Lesbian is the way that person was born. Just in the opinion of others, such as yourself, that is just wrong and you keep turning to the book (written by interpretation and opinion), to tell you how things are. Do you like living a life like they did 2000 years ago? “The most awful of crimes, are justified in the name of divine pursuit” Keep justifying your thoughts and actions in the… Read more »

All this talk about a gay gene, and being born that way – where is the proof. Even some of the leaders of the gay community acknowledge that there is no such thing as a gay gene – have you not read? In all the up to date scientific research which can be verified says the same thing – no gay gene. It is a chosen sinful lifestyle just like the Bible says!

Good, I love it when people fall all over one another to be politically correct and tolerant. Pastor Tom is simply employing a variety of recycled unchristian and narrow views of family. I and my partner have six children between us, mine older his exiting their teens. We are a family. We act in accordance with the principles of family, we love within the principles of family, we protect and honor, encourage and support our children throughout their lives. Get over it folks. The reality is that there are many more men either locked in a heterosexual marriage or living… Read more »

If being gay is only a chosen lifestyle, and is in no way natural, why would God make all these animals and birds gay? Why does homosexuality appear in nature? What do you tell two homosexual swans who want to parent a baby?

So please then, Pastor Tom, post your proof as to where these leaders of the gay community say otherwise, and please post your scientific research that states that it is not a gay gene. And on top of that, please post where there is scientific evidence that states it is a chosen, sinful lifestyle. Otherwise you’re just blowing hot air at the moment.

Ok, to be fair Pastor Tom, I researched many different pages claiming there is no “gay gene”, and yes, there appears to be no gene in itself. But upon further research, of which will be summarized greatly by this link, http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/bb/neuro/neuro05/web3/kgiamanco.html , then it appears on many pages that gay/lesbians are still born that way. They don’t just go and adopt the lifestyle on a whim, as you still seem to think they do.

But now Pastor Tom, I still want your scientific evidence that states it is a chosen, and sinful lifestyle. Hopefully you’re not obtaining this kind of information from Stormfront or something.

Another link for you Pastor Tom: http://www.mentalhelp.net/poc/view_doc.php?type=doc&id=28531 This one tries to summarize whether or not being gay is a choice. I particularly liked one persons comments on the subject, as I find it will hit true to home for you: “judging others is indisputably a choice – Troy – Dec 5th 2009 Hi all, It occurs to me as I read some of these posts that the most ironic statements come out of the mouths of those who claim to believe in God. While debating whether or not being gay is a choice, people are choosing to be insensitive, ignorant,… Read more »

Well Pastor Tom…. I would like you to meet with My priest… Father Joe Leclair who is wondering how a narrow minded hateful person as yourself could earn the title of pastor. I assume you are not a real pastor, but rather a bilble thumping lonely man sitting at home with nothing better to do then quote ancient scripture in attempt to feel better about your own self. I don’t know the bible very well but I do attend a Catholic Church and am accepted by all. Never have I been told I’m sinning. I think it is a sin… Read more »

Pastor Tom: When we say that lesbians and gays are born that way, it has nothing to do with genes. Have you ever heard of a Bank Robber gene, or a Truck Driver gene, or even a Pastor gene? It is the way we are and is the way that God made us. The “Book” says He made us in his image…….now twist your tongue around that Tommy Boy!

a pastor gene, now that’s funny! Actually, I am sure that everyone here will agree to one thing, humanity as a whole has come nowhere near explaining all the intricacies that make up humankind. I am sure though we consider we made great strides in mapping out the human gene pool, there is probably so much more to find out, and we’ve probably not even touched the tip of the iceberg on that one. But from what limited knowledge we know about it so far, we all know that humankind takes all sorts in. Straights, gays, lesbians, bisexuals, Pastor Tom’s,… Read more »

Oh, man, this is nuts. I never could understand how the church says ‘love everyone, but hate gays and lesbians’ . How dumb is that?? I’m straight, but I detest the way these religious bigots ( yes, Pastor “Full of Hatred, err sorry Tom” treat fellow humans like they are secondary citizens, just because they may love someone the church doesn’t like!! What the hell right does the church have in these matters?? It’s no wonder I no longer attend church, I think it’s a friggin farce. The Pope says ” Don’t use birth control, but don’t have an abortion,… Read more »

Grimalot. I agree that we’ve just touched the tip of the iceberg. You are one of the more intelligent people writing here.

Pastor Tom: You go around judging everybody and everything. Who was it that said “Judge not….lest ye be judged”? I think you’d better be careful Pastor Tom before Someone decides to rip you a new one…..

Lisa: You must remember there is a big difference between hating the sinner and hating their sin. I do not hate the sinners I speak to, for I remember that I am only a sinner saved by His grace. But God does expect us to love righteousness and to hate sin – “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked”(Psalm 97:10). The Lord Jesus goes on to say – “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good… Read more »

You’re not getting the point Pastor Tom. Gays/Lesbians are not sinners! They do not require their sexual orientation exposed as a sin. To me, they are just like everyone else. Whatever race, nationality, creed, sexual orientation, they are put on this planet, and if there is a higher power that put them on this planet, then so be it, that is in their image regardless of how you look at it. Why would “God” purposefully put Gay/Lesbians on the planet for? So that they can lead a life being mocked by all the supposed “non-sinners”? That just seems like petty… Read more »

Discussing this stuff with the likes of Pastor Tom is as futile as talking to a brick. His particular cult has a hate on for people that they are afraid of. Of course he says that he loves the sinner, but hates the sin. Unfortunately, the sin is being a homosexual, and living a life as such. There’s is no way that bigots, hiding behind a religion (cult), will ever let go of their hatred. It seems to be in their genes.
