I have been reading over the past several weeks about gays and gay issues. I was part of an online thread that even questioned whether or not there is a "gay agenda".
Some of the notable mentions in the news recently have been: President Obama appointing historically the largest number of gays, like Kevin Jennings, in his administration, President Obama's pledge to legislatively seek the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) and the outing of gays in Uganda's Rolling Stone magazine.
But wait! A little noted event occurred in Iowa a key state in any national election. According to A.G. Sulzberger in his New York Times article, "Ouster of Iowa Judges Sends Signal to Bench":
"An unprecedented vote to remove three Iowa Supreme Court justices who were part of the unanimous decision that legalized same-sex marriage in the state was celebrated by conservatives as a popular rebuke of judicial overreach, even as it alarmed proponents of an independent judiciary"
A.G. goes on to report, "Leaders of the recall campaign said the results should be a warning to judges elsewhere." I agree.
Social matters belong in the hands of the people, not activist judges.
The issue of special rights for gay and lesbian behaviors are a matter of broad social judgement, not imposition by judicial fiat. So who are those behind the gay agenda? Progressive Democrats and Republicans who have came to believe that being gay is not a choice, even though the science says otherwise. It is pushed by a vocal few in both parties who wrongly believe this behavior deserves some special recognition equal to that of blacks who have suffered past discrimination.
Progressive Democrats and Republicans have tried their damnedest to deny any public outrage over the openly gay agenda. How do they do this? "As part of the vast social project of moral leveling." Charles Krauthammer wrote, "it is not enough for the deviant to be normalized. The normal must be found to be deviant." [Emphasis added]
So anyone speaking out against the gay agenda is considered to be a homophobic, racist, or a bigot. Even President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett was attacked when she said homosexuality is a "lifestyle choice"
Standard progressive tactics - shut up the opposition by categorizing them as being morally deviant.
How does the media play in all of this? They have scrubbed their style manuals of any references to the gay or lesbian lifestyles for fear of being branded "deviant". Some even support the gay agenda because they have embraced "normalizing deviant behavior" in the name of social justice.
There are countless examples of how dangerous male sex with males (MSM) is and the harm it does. In Sarasota County, Florida 70% of the HIV/AIDS cases are due to MSM. This is born out by the Florida Manup Report and the United Nations. According to the Florida Manup 2010 Report:
"In Florida, 1 in 209 white men, compared to 1 in 44 black men and 1 in 117 Hispanic men are living with HIV/AIDS (reported cases). Males account for the majority of HIV/AIDS cases in Florida. Men should begin engaging in frank discussions about the seriousness of HIV/AIDS and include women and adolescents in the discussions." [Emphasis added]
The problem is men are afraid to speak out against the dangerous behaviors of gay men for fear of being labeled deviants.
According to American Vision, "All types of behaviors make people happy. Just because a person pursues that happy behavior does not make that behavior morally acceptable. . ."
Morality is an individual decision, not a decision made by the state. From the passage of Proposition 8 in California and of Amendment 2 in Florida and the ouster of the judges in Iowa the people have spoken. The state morally redefining marriage is not acceptable to the people.
A.G reports, "critics of the campaign, including those who see the courts as a protector of minority rights. . ." This is perhaps the most frightening statement of all. It is not the role of the judiciary to make moral decisions. It is the people in our Republican form of government who decide moral issues. When the state becomes a vehicle for the imposition of morality we will have tyranny.
Time to MAN UP and talk about the negative consequences of the gay lifestyle. What do you think?
