A new study from researchers at University of Queensland, Australia, has identified that those with low cognitive ability — defined as diminished mechanisms of learning, memory, problem-solving, and attention focus — are much more likely to be prejudiced against people with different lifestyles, notably sexual orientation….
The study, titled “The Cognitive Roots of Prejudice Towards Same-Sex Couples: An Analysis of an Australian National Sample,” was published in the peer-reviewed journal Intelligence, and is claimed to be the first deep analysis of the relationship between low cognitive ability and attitudes toward LGBT issues.
Earlier clinical research has indicated that a lower level of intelligence during childhood can predict whether an adult will display an anti-homosexual prejudice, particularly in instances of a right-wing ideological background, notably detailed in the Brock University study “Bright Minds and Dark Attitudes,” published in the monthly peer-reviewed journal Psychological Science.
THIS IS HOMEWORK! I’m far too tired to wade through the wee p-values and critique this nonsense. So if anybody wants to take this on and write a small guest post using the techniques I’ve taught you lo these many years, please do so.
Hint 1: the greatest minds in Western history have opposed concupiscence. Yet, suddenly, a sample of (I’m guessing) college kids score some number on a test and thus only the dimmest oppose sodomy.
Hint 2: We earlier dissected the foolish “Bright Minds and Dark Attitudes” study.
An Oregon business has filed a complaint against a church that prohibited it from hosting an LGBT event in a building owned by the church, claiming that the fallout from that decision has harmed the company.
In 2015, Ambridge Event Center, which once rented out a space owned by Holy Rosary Church for various events, was compelled to reject an LGBT group’s request to hold an event on the property due to the church’s “morals clause.”
In a lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Oregon, Ambridge alleged that the church’s rules against them hosting the LGBT event caused them harm. They are seeking $2.3 million in damages.
The freedom of association is long dead. “But…but…they’re open to the public!” Yeah, and if pornographers wanted to host a shoot there, the Church would have to say yes. They’re open to the public, after all. “But…but…if we allow freedom of association, then racism!” Sigh.
The government proposes to amend the law to allow people to self-identify as men or women, and to stop allowing organisations in sensitive situations to exclude people of the opposite birth sex. We call for women to be consulted on how to protect women and girls’ rights, safety, privacy and dignity.
“The Government has not yet decided whether or not to introduce a self-declaration model, and will not change the Equality Act 2010 provisions which support organisations to run single sex services.”
Equality, like Diversity, always leads to mandatory quotas. Absolutely always. And quotas must necessarily have bureaucracies to enforce them. The police state in the UK must, if this all passes, necessarily increase because the only the sole the lone way to have equality is by constant force.
As proof of that, this next Item.
‘Freedom city’? Going beyond ‘sanctuary,’ Austin, Texas, vows to curtail arrests
…The other resolution directs police to avoid arrests for misdemeanors, including those for smoking marijuana, having drug paraphernalia, and taking part in petty theft — crimes that city data shows frequently end in arrests of black and Latino residents.
It is, of course, a complete mystery how these arrests of black and Latino residents arise. One thing is certain, though. If blacks and Latinos are not arrested in proportion to the number of crimes the commit, we can achieve Equality with the white arrest rates.
