It's not a bigotry issue, it's a moral one

"We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us….

All laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be passed which engenders love between men. All homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically, philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy….

If you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies….

We shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile, heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens… Our writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles.

The family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and violence--will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination and curbs free will, must be eliminated… All churches who condemn us will be closed…

We shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and thinkers who have shaped the world….

Tremble, hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks."

--Excerpts from "Gay Revolutionary." By Michael Swift. Reprinted from The Congressional Record. First printed in Gay Community News, February 15-21 1987

Last week Barney Frank, in an interview on a gay online news site, referred to Justice Antonin Scalia as a "homophobe" because he opposed the majority opinion in the Lawrence v. Texas decision as "a massive disruption of the current social order", and because, in Franks words (in a subsequent interview), Scalia "thinks it's a terrible idea for people who are gay or lesbian to have equal rights."

This is typical of Left-wing tactics:  Name calling, to demonize the opponent, and phrasing the complaint in a way that, while not accurately relating the opponents' position, tends to offend American' sense of justice (against those whom the Left wants you to feel this outrage) by using the language of victimization.  The abortion crowd would say that we oppose "choice" because surveys have shown Americans like having choices—it's a very American thing, to have a choice.  But the word "choice" obscures the truth, which is that "choice" is savagely denied to the one whose life is being ended.  So "choice" is an appealing euphemism for "murder".  In the same way, Franks says Justice Scalia "opposes equal rights" for "gays and lesbians", creating the impression of discrimination against people because they are different.  After all,

Hath not a [homosexual] eyes? Hath not a [homosexual] hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means, warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer, as a [heterosexual] is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?
                                                                              Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice
                                                                               (except the homosexual part)

For the average American, the face of homosexuality is the sad, lonely victim, misunderstood and despised, Matthew Shepard trussed up on a fence and pistol whipped to death.  But those intimate with the agenda understand that the homosexual agenda, outlined above in the form of a fantasy, is closer to the truth, though they would protest otherwise.

Franks, and the whole homosexual rights apparatus, pretends (in accordance with their propaganda design) that homosexuals are just like you and me, they just love differently.

But "love" is a most basic need, and "bigots" like Scalia are denying them the chance to love and be loved.   They would have us believe that homosexuality is inherent, that there is a "gay gene".  And if God made them that way, he must not disapprove of their sexual conduct.  Though there has been no reproducible study that proves a gene for homosexuality exists, the myth has been widely and effectively inculcated into the culture, and has been used to justify dismantling all cultural, moral, and legal obstacles to full acceptance of homosexuality.  But (assuming that genetic homosexuality were a justification for granting special rights to homosexuals) the genetic argument presupposes that such persons have no choice about their behavior.  But genetics do not make people strip off their clothes and gyrate in front of Catholic Churches, performing obscene acts in the street while the midday Mass goes on within, nor create sex toys made in the image of Catholic saints.  Genes don't make people behave vulgarly.  Genes don't make people go out of their way to expose and/or involve children to their behavior.  But a psychiatric condition might.  A spiritual disorder might.

In his book Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth, Dr. Jeffrey Satinover points out that the notion that homosexuality is not immoral because it is inherent, even if it could be proven that homosexuals are "born that way", is a fallacy.

The claim that "homosexuality is genetic" is certainly false as a scientific statement…but whether it is true or false is also irrelevant.  Science cannot distinguish between moral and immoral behaviors on the basis of the predetermination of these conditions, because from a scientific point of view all behaviors are treated as though predetermined…[either by genes, or our families, or education, or other factors]… (my emphasis) from a scientific perspective, there is never a place for freely acting agents because complete reductionism is the very premise on which science proceeds…To the extent that an agent's behavior appears free, science considers its understanding incomplete.

Once we recognize this fact, we realize that science cannot contribute to any moral question, because moral questions always presume an agent capable of freely choosing good or evil.  Science does not—and should not— say anything about good or evil because it must presume that such apparent choice is an illusion. [p.125-126]

If science reduces everything to cause and effect (whether internal or external), no one could ever be held accountable for anything, whether it be legal choices or moral ones.

In truth, the gay leadership encourages its members to conceal the true nature of their behavior from the heterosexual community while they work toward converting opposition to alliance.  They have shifted the argument from a moral to a civil battle.  They do not want us to look too closely at their conduct.  They promote their cause and efforts in terms of "equal rights" and overcoming oppression, but it is not homosexuals that are being oppressed, it is homosexual conduct, and most especially when that conduct involves children, whether it involves molestation or indoctrination. In his book, As We Sodomize America, O. R. Adams, Jr. compiles an impressive study of homosexuality--the behavior, the agenda, and the consequences.  He draws extensively from both homosexual sources and homosexuality opposing sources, and from neutral sources and government statistics.  He found Kirk and Madsen's well-known book, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90's a valuable source, and gives them credit for at least a more reasoned approach, though, of course, it is a roadmap for the gay conquest of America by propaganda.  What they said (see Adams, page 52 and 53) about certain brilliant homosexuals of the past is true today: 

When you find a given failing even in a community's best and brightest, you suspect its overwhelming prevalence among the great unwashed.  In this context, it's noteworthy that Alan Turing, Oscar Wilde, and perhaps Leonardo da Vinci—each, in his own time and unique vein, among the most brilliant minds the gay community ever produced—all embroiled themselves in serious legal trouble by carrying on indiscreetly with young men. (my emphasis) Da Vinci stood trial; Wilde was imprisoned, destroying his personality and career; Turing chemically castrated by order of the court, killed himself. 

Arguably, each of these great men knew the law of his time, had ample scope to conduct his affairs in the same discretion and privacy employed by lesser mortals, and, having a first-rate mind, must have known, on some level, that flaunting his 'deviation' in the public's face was an ideal way of losing his reputation, career, and even life.  Yet, for the sake of what, we cannot fathom, each man threw caution—and with it everything else—to the winds.

It's remarkable that these geniuses—the very cream of the human crop—could fail so devastatingly to see their world as it really was, and to exercise minimal restraint

Could it be that there is something in the "gay" psyche that lacks self-restraint?  I read of a case in which a gay couple were fostering a young boy who complained he was being molested, and his foster "parents" had been questioned about it, but apparently the authorities did not believe the boy, and he was not removed from the home.  Knowing the boy had already reported them once, and that they were being scrutinized, they proceeded to molest him anyway, and were subsequently arrested.  And yet, the statistics show that homosexuals in great numbers report sexual encounters with youngsters, and that includes molestation by "gay "parents", with 29% of children raised by homosexual "parents" reporting molestation.  In a 1992 report by Dr. Timothy Daily, senior fellow at the Family Research Council, he cited statistics showing that 1) men are almost always the perpetrator; 2) up to one-third or more of child sex abuse cases are committed against boys; 3) less than three percent of the population are homosexuals. Thus, a tiny percentage of the population (homosexual men), commit one-third or more of the cases of child sexual molestation. The sheer weight and the stunning reality of the statistics is overwhelming.                  

Homosexual desire is not genetic.  Homosexual behavior is not immutable. It takes an incomprehensible suspension of the faculty of reason to believe that homosexuality is anything but a perversion.  To deny it is to deny that there are any moral aspects to sexual expression at all, nor should there be any laws, even those protecting children.  The purpose of sex is not ecstasy.  The purpose of sex is reproduction.  The purpose of desire is to induce reproduction, and to foster an emotional bond in order to create and maintain a coupling for the purposes of providing an optimum situation for child-rearing.  If human sex has any other purpose, then it is a spiritual one.  Either way, you can't escape it:  desire is either a pure biological incentive to reproduce, or it has a higher purpose, and therefore a moral dimension, (or both of these), making sexual practices outside of male/female sexual behaviors culminating in coitus deviant.  That is not to say that people don't have sex because it is pleasurable.  But let's not pretend that desire for one's own sex is "normal".   Let's not treat those who follow the plan of nature and of nature's God (because God's plan is the natural law) as if there is something terribly wrong with them.  So called "homophobes" are merely people who haven't been properly brainwashed from infancy into accepting the gay agenda.

But the evidence for the progress of the "Gay Revolutionary" above can be found all around us—even in our schools, as demonstrated in this excerpt (lyrics by Paul Selig) of a piece of "educational" material produced by GLSEN, provided courtesy of Concerned Women of America.:

                            In Mommy's high heels the world is beautiful,
                            Let the peasants choke way down below,
                            I'm standing high above the crowds,
                            My head is breaking through the clouds
                            In Mommy's high heels I'm ten feet tall….

                            So let them say I'm like a girl!
                            What's wrong with being like a girl?!
                            And let them jump and jeer and whirl –
                            They are the swine, I am the pearl!
                            And let them laugh and let them scream!
                            They'll be beheaded when I'm queen!
                            When I rule the world! When I rule the world!
                            When I rule the world in my mommy's high heels.

You decide for yourself.  Was "The Gay Revolutionary" a satire?  Or is Justice Scalia's response a reasoned and intelligent response to an immoral agenda. ESR
