The Double Standard LGBT use to define hate Speech

Is Jeebus a hate speech term, to most LGBT member the answer is no, Yet maybe to Christians it is.

So with that; why is ok for LGBT use anti-Christian term and hate speech, while demanding Christians stop using hate terms against us..

See the example below.. from FaceBook and from a Nation Blogger whom is among the first to be Nominated from a GLAAD AWARD.


Pam Spaulding: He's @PeterLaBarbera. He was tweeting from his Jeebus Blackberry.

Rachel Blair Perrone Jeebus is a hate term? Uh... what?

Rebecca Kell How do we define the term "hate speech?" Not how do they define it, but is there a definition that we use that can be applied to all speech to define if it's hate or not?

Carlos J. Rivera
There is no good definition of hate speech that satisfies everyone. There is a book called Speaking back: the free speech versus hate speech debate By Katharine Gelber that goes through the arguments. This is what I found on Ha...te speech is a communication that carries no meaning other than the expression of hatred for some group, especially in circumstances in which the communication is likely to provoke violence. It is an incitement to hatred primarily against a group of persons defined in terms of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. Hate speech can be any form of expression regarded as offensive to racial, ethnic and religious groups and other discrete minorities or to women.
LaBarbera is full of hate b/c of his family situation. He needs a shrink.

Tina Ciampa name calling is a form of violence. i wish everyone would knock it off.

Yet, each of these folks define hate speech differently.

so what does Jeebus means, A name used on progressive blogs to deride intolerant religious rightwingers ("fundies") who use the Christian faith as a flag and front for every one of their nastiest motivations, statements and actions, hiding hate behind professed faith. Basically "jeebus" is a code word for lefties permitting them to mock self-annointed religious frothing biters / ultraconservatives of the social or financial right who advocate selfishness and cruelty (via nutty religious errors) without actually deriding Jesus or Christianity itself which they don't have a problem with. Put alternatively, a person who follows the New Testament loves Jesus; a person who can't wait to take away sick benefits from a dying lesbian because God Hates Fags loves Jeebus. Get the diff?

So GayINC has said its ok for gays, lesbians and Transgenders folks to use hateful speech against those who used hate speech against us.  This makes us no better than them.

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
