Butler Co Woman: God is Not Tolerant

Marlene Lott of Butler County picked up her pen to share her thoughts on gay marriage with the readers of the Post-Gazette.

I want my grandchildren to know that their grandmother did what she could to leave a wholesome America for them to live in.

Ms. Lott trots out the same tired old connections between same-sex marriage and polygamy and/or close-kin marriage.  However, her next line of reasoning is the most interesting.

Some say that those of us who believe this are not tolerant. Please know that God is not tolerant! God will not say that if you are doing something wrong that it's all right with Him. He does say He loves you and He forgives you and tells you to “Go and sin no more”.

God is not tolerant. 

What Ms. Lott doesn't spell out is that in her mind, God is not tolerant of anyone who is not a white, heterosexual,  Christian-American.  That's her definition of “wholesome” – a throwback to the good old days when homos were in the closet, minorities knew their place and everyone believed in Mom and Applie Pie.  In other words, she wants to live in a land governed by 1950's television standards and The 700 Club. 

She even uses the code phrase “traditional family” which doesn't gel with most of the families I know — single parents, blended families, grandparents raising grandchildren, transracial adoptions, mixed religion partnerships, etc.  Many of whom are practicing Christians. 

Ms. Lott is a bigot and she put that out there for the entire region to read.  What's worse, she believes that God is a bigot and instills that value in her grandchildren.  Grandchildren who are probably growing up in a school district that is predominantly white and filled with children whose parents fled racially diverse neighbhorhoods for the so-called safety of suburbs.   

How very wholesome.

  • BRAVO! You accurately point out that Butler, county of a gazillion bible thumping churches, produces mindless backwoods cretins who actually choose to elect politicians like Daryl Metcalfe, Melissa Hart, Rick Santorum. They also believe that women should remain subservant to their husbands.
    You really should take pity upon cretins such as this. There's been a lot of inbreeding. And, sadly, none of the people like this have ever had an orgasm. Nor will they ever have one. They are too uptight to enjoy life and its earthly rewards.

  • Certainlyl its not just Republicans. Bigots come in multiple flavors, they always have. Being “against gay marriage” is one thing, but please remember that gay marriage is not legal in Pennsylvania. This homo-bigot and her merry band are against gay people. They allow their hatred and fear to drive them to extremes. Ms. Lott is on a mission back by her hate-mongering God which she camoflauges in “wholesome” language. Too bad she's not focused on issues that have a direct impact on the lives of her grandchildren – healthcare, economic development, education, etc. But that's what hatred does.
