Scott Lively, Homosexuality and Authority v. Empathy







by Gary Cottle

According to Scott Lively, homosexuality is inherently morally wrong, just like murder, adults having sex with children and slavery. And he claims he knows this because he relies on an external authority to tell him it’s wrong. I presume that he’s referring to the Bible and the Christian religion.

Lively seemed to suggest that his authoritarian approach was superior to the approach of a lesbian attorney he once debated who didn’t claim to have any special awareness of a higher authority, but instead relied on her opinions to guide her.

First off, I would like to point out that just because Lively, or anyone of any particular faith, claims that their system of belief is authoritative and reflective of a superhuman understanding of morality, they are still basing their belief on their opinion because they can’t prove that the authority that they claim informs them is real. And they certainly can’t prove that their understanding of this authority is accurate.

But what got my attention is that Lively doesn’t seem to give any kind of weight to the feelings people have for one another. Lively’s ethic is litigious and not based on empathy, which, one could claim, isn’t Christian at all.

I studied philosophy and religion in college, and even though I am far from a professional ethicist, I’ve heard a lot of ideas concerning the basis and genesis of morality. There are lots of lofty thoughts about this subject out there. Beautiful thoughts. Amazing thoughts. And I believe that the study of this subject is worthwhile. But when you get right down to it, I think someone who is totally and completely unchurched and unschooled can be just as moral as anyone else. And on a practical level, when we’re in a particular situation and we’re forced to make snap moral judgments regarding the right course of action, I don’t think it’s often logic or law--either human inspired or supposedly divinely revealed--that informs us. I think we rely on gut instinct and empathy, if we have any, more than we realize. We may rationalize and defend or criticize our actions with a lot of fancy talk after the fact, but when we’re home alone, and someone breaks into the house and we have to decide to either blow the intruder away or try to appeal to the intruder’s humanity, it is mainly our instincts that guide us. We don’t stand there and think about Jeremy Bentham or John Stewart Mill, or Aristotle, or the Old Testament. We just act. And our actions reveal our basic character.

Forget for a moment the religiosity of Christianity or any of it’s supernatural claims. Speaking in anthropological, philosophical and historical terms, Christianity is important in regards to the development of our understanding of morality because it acknowledges and embraces the centrality of empathy in our decision making process. Jesus taught that we should treat our neighbor as we would ourselves. Some Christian theologians have claimed that we should simply forget about the law completely and focus our attention exclusively on this simple commandment. And one doesn’t really need to believe Jesus was the son of God to find merit in this creed. For many, it is a concise articulation of a guiding principle that seems to come to us naturally, even if we stray from it from time to time.

You can either live in fear and paranoia and view other people as your enemies, or you can open your heart to them and feel for them even when they’re flawed. It seems to me that those who have the most empathy, the ones who are quickest to forgive and love and see the goodness in others even when they act badly are the most moral people, regardless of their religion or philosophy.

It also seems to me that those who fear going through live without some kind of external authority informing their actions are often the ones who appear to be the least empathetic. Scott Lively is a case in point. He can thump his Bible all he wants, but it’s obvious to a lot of us that he is allowing his fear and hate guide him, and he rationalizes his hate by calling it his religion. If Scott Lively really is an example of a truly moral man, then God help us.

Sister: Bullying continued after suicide

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

I don’t wish to advocate violence, but…

by Gary Cottle

Jamey Rodemeyer’s suicide has been weighing on my mind a lot.  I'm sure his death has been weighing on the minds of many people.  And now we have learned that even though Jamey is dead and gone, the bullies who went after him in life are still bullying him in death.

Recently we’ve seen a great outpouring of sympathy for a murderer of a gay boy. Like Jamey, Larry King was bullied for years before he was killed, and he was portrayed as the aggressor in court and in the media when his killer was put on trial simply because he refused to conform to his bullies’ concept of masculinity and he dared stand up to them. Many seem to think that we should let his killer off the hook. They claim he was just a kid and his brain wasn’t fully formed or something. So even though we hold kids accountable for smoking dope, even though we chap their asses if we catch them smoking dope--which seems like a youthful indiscretion to me--killing someone, especially a gay boy, seems to be an excusable offence.

We have Christianists using nefarious means to get the LGBT education act repealed out here in California. We have Christianists claiming that effective anti-bullying programs that address homophobic bullying are a means to recruit and indoctrinate kids into the “gay lifestyle.” We have seen a mother punished for daring to get on board a school bus to tell bullies to leave her son alone.

So what are we to do? They are literally killing our kids, and they’re preventing us from defending them in a nonviolent way. Hopefully things will get better. Hopefully society will change. And I believe it is changing. But obviously it’s not changing fast enough for kids like Jamey. What about them? Are we to allow them to continue to be slaughtered as we wait for gradual and peaceful change?

Many of the kids like Jamey are targeted specifically because they don’t fight back. They aren’t passive by conviction, they are passive by nature. I think this is a beautiful thing. These unexpectedly delicate boys can bring out the best in humanity. They teach us that it is possible to live in this world peacefully. Many want to protect them and champion them. But others see their passivity as a weakness and an opportunity. Rough boys go after the passive ones, and they hound them, make their lives miserable. And although many are careful not to come right out and praise bullying, these rough boys have their champions as well. In the minds of many, bullies are preserving the idea that traditionally masculine, heterosexual men are superior to non heterosexual men and women. And it is unlikely that they’re going to yield to attempts to curb bullying or any school-sponsored denunciation of homophobia.

That leaves boys like Jamey and Larry vulnerable. If we’re going to make school a dog eat dog environment, if we’re going to let teenagers off the hook for cruelty and even murder, then it seems to me that the bullied boys should at least be told that they have just as much license to inflict mental and bodily harm as those who torment them. But it’s not likely that they’ll utilize this license because, as I’ve already pointed out, they are by nature passive. And if one did snap and blow away a young thug, somehow I doubt they would be given a pass or garner as much sympathy as those who target them.

So it seems that we, those of us who were once bullied like Jamey but somehow survived, are left in an impossible situation. Our hands are tied behind our backs as we watch our heirs suffering and dying. We wait in sorrow for our society to recognize our worth and to decide to protect and nurture us when we’re young. We wait for those who claim the mantle of righteousness to rise to the level of their victims. We wait for parents, school teachers, ministers and politicians to let go of their prejudices and stand up against bullying rather than subtly and not so subtly encouraging it. We wait, but some of us are growing weary of waiting.

Rep. Ros-Lehtinen’s Opposition To DOMA May Be Guided By Personal Experience, Transgender Son: Rep.

Ros-Lehtinen’s commitment to gay and lesbian rights appears to be born out of personal experience. A 2007 article on her early...

Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, is bitching about Rick Santorum's "Google problem."

Google's Hypocritical Anti-Bully Pulpit


Penny Nance: Just because someone disagrees with you, it gives you no right to deface and smear their name in such a way that the website comes up as the first result in a Google search during a presidential campaign.



__________________________

Dan Savage created the website that is the cause of Sen. Santorum’s “Google problem.” He did it after Santorum compared homosexual sex with sex with dogs. Imagine your intimate relations with another human being, possibly someone you care for very deeply, someone you’re devoted to, someone you love and cherish being compared to FUCKING A DOG! If this woman doesn’t realize that goes way beyond a mere disagreement, if she doesn’t realize how degrading, how insulting, how dehumanizing that is, then she is a monumentally stupid and hateful person of extremely low moral character. And has Santorum ever apologized for that remark? No. In fact he continues to say the most hateful and disgusting things imaginable, while pretending to be the victim when he’s called on it. If this woman thinks Santorum is the one being bullied here, she, along with Santorum, need to be horsewhipped. Scum of the earth, the both of them.

Fundamentalism Is Fake

by Gary Cottle

I suppose that a lot can be said about spirituality. An untold number of books have been written about it. Whole libraries could be devoted to this single subject. And if you stood on a street corner and asked passersby what they thought the definition of spirituality is, you’d likely get a lot of different responses. So I’m not sure that any simple and concise definition is sufficient, but basically, I think, spirituality is about the awareness of a power at work in the universe that somehow escapes our physical senses.

Once an individual becomes aware of this power, this underlying presence that is not readily apparent, then the individual may be driven to ask a certain question: is there any validity to this awareness, am I actually detecting something that has a reality that is independent of my individual experience, or am I manufacturing the experience on some level, even unconsciously? Since the nature of that which is being experienced is by definition outside the realm of observable and measurable phenomena, then the validity of the experience can not be proven. I think this is where faith comes in. Will the individual chalk up the experience to a personal fluke? Or will the individual decide to believe in the experience?

Organized religion can be a means of exploring one's experience of the spiritual, find ways of talking about that experience, and have one’s faith in the experience bolstered by others who claim to have experienced something similar.

Since it is not possible to prove the validity of spiritual experiences, one would think that those who have had the experiences would remain humble. And of course, many do remain humble. Even many of those who choose to utilize organized religion to express their faith remain humble. But there are many who do not. They get bogged down in dogma, and they demand that they understand their experience in absolute terms, and rather than admitting to any doubt, they show a willingness to demand that others accept as true what they can not prove.

Fundamentalist Christians insist that they have a failsafe formula for determining the absolute truth of their faith. They claim that interpreting the Bible in literal terms is the only way of knowing their god. They claim that nothing of themselves exists in their interpretations. They insist that it’s all matter of fact and straight forward. But is it?

I find it odd that if the fundamentalist god were real, and if this god actually intended to punish us for eternity for failing to understand the godly message, the fundamentalist god would choose to communicate with us through an ancient, long, meandering anthology that can be and has been interpreted in a number of ways, even by fundamentalists.

The most pernicious aspect of fundamentalism, I believe, is this idea that literalism provides fundamentalists a means of expressing their faith in concrete terms. There is no mystery. There is no doubt. It’s all presented as cut and dry. This seems insane to me. Most of us are staggeringly ignorant of a great many things. Some of us don’t understand the lunar cycle. Some of us don’t understand how the TV works. Some of us couldn’t fix the toilet if our lives depended on it. And there are those among us who insist that not only do they know for a fact that their god is real, but they demand that they know in absolute terns what this god thinks and wants.

I think it’s interesting that modern fundamentalists focus so much of their attention on abortion and homosexuality. Isn’t it odd that a religion that is supposedly based on the precept that their god is love and that the most essential aspect of their morality is treating one’s neighbor as one’s self could be boiled down to an intense disgust of abortion and homosexuality?

What do you suppose links these two concerns? It has been well documented that the lack of reproductive freedom relegates women to second-class citizenship. It helps keep them poor and dependent. And the revulsion of homosexuality means that heterosexual men will be revered. So it seems fundamentalism heavily favors patriarchy.

Call me a skeptic, but I suspect that fundamentalism has little to do with spirituality. I think it’s a means to allow fundamentalists to gain a superior status in our society, protect that status, and attack anyone who might pose a threat to their status. And I think it’s a way for fundamentalists to fool themselves into believing that they are good, decent people while acting out in an extremely selfish way.

A Quote From Tobias Wolff

Knowing that everything comes to an end is a gift of experience, a consolation gift for knowing that we ourselves will come to an end. Before we get it we live in a continuous present, and imagine the future as more of that present. Happiness is endless happiness, innocent of its own sure passing. Pain is endless pain.

--Tobias Wolff (This Boy’s Life)
_________________

This bit of insight explains why young people are so susceptible to depression and mental instability. Since they have not lived long enough to witness the passage of time, they don’t have a deep awareness that their life could be completely different in three months, six months, a year or five years from now. If a kid has been relentlessly bullied, then that’s all he knows. Others may assure him that things will change, but if he’s to believe it, he would have to take it on faith, because he has no experience that tells him that this is in fact true.
