On the Bill O'Rielly show, November 9th, there was the discussion of the new Homeland Security policy to give full body scans or body pat downs to all passengers. Many people oppose this intrusive "security" measure. However, in defending the pat downs and the full body scans we were assured that only those of the same gender will view the body scans or conduct the "pat downs."
But what if the person of the same "gender" is a Sodomite? Are we suppose to feel better about that? I don't want a Sodomite running his hands up and down my legs either. Toward the end of the discussion, Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Fox News contributor stated that, in spite of the concerns, that overall it is a small sacrifice to pay in order to insure our safety. A small sacrifice? This reminds me of the words of Benjamin Franklin “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Call me a bigot, but if we are going to violate a person's constitutional protections, what don't we simply "violate" the "rights" of Muslims - they are the ones trying to kill us - not some 90-year old grandma in a wheel chair.
