Debunking the false facts and loopy logic of gay activists is crucial to the future of the culture, so here’s an example to illustrate a subtle but important aspect of the controversy between gay and traditional values.
In the 60′s, Blacks were so effective in using sit-ins to oppose segregation that the image of lunch-counter discrimination has become emblematic of civil rights injustices in general.
The lunch counter at the Woolworth’s Store on Granby Street [in Norfolk, VA],
where 38 young African-Americans held a peaceful sit-in demonstration to
protest the segregated lunch counter. Several have school books with them
while others are dressed in ROTC uniforms from Norfolk Virginia State
College. The demonstration began at 5:30 pm and ended at 6:10 pm when
they left peacefully. (Date: 2/12/1960).

In the 21st century, gay activists are eager to use that imagery to justify demands upon Christian businesses to endorse their lifestyle. Refusing to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple or refusing to take photos at a gay wedding is thus maligned as being no different from the turning away of blacks from the all-white businesses of yesteryear.
The purpose of this post is to point out the difference.
