How, exactly, did we ever get to this point?
The hot political topic du jour involves the creation of a new right to “gay” marriage being established in American civil law. We already have a new genre of “gay rights” laws in existence, even in the absence of any special “straight rights” laws. Homosexuals are extra special; homosexuals need new civil rights the rest of us don’t get. Only the special rights of homosexuals are to be protected by law; the rest of us don’t get any special rights, let alone any special protections of our existing rights, or any special sympathy or empathy for our choices in how we live our lives, or for our chosen sexual practices.
Homosexuals are not to be considered “haters” if they criticize or mock the lifestyles of heterosexuals, or even physically attack heterosexuals. Hate crimes are strictly one-way crimes, enacted for special groups or classes or races of citizens only, but not for the rest of us, and certainly not for the majority. It has become another area of institutionalized class strife and government mandated class animosity and class warfare in America. The Socialists love it. I mean the Democrats.
A right is guaranteed by law; an opportunity is something taken, or not taken, by a citizen. Protecting a legal right is the duty of government; taking advantage of an opportunity is the sole responsibility of a citizen. A citizen right is a legal thing; an opportunity is a free-choice thing.
We submit that, in America, there is not one single legal right that a heterosexual person enjoys that a homosexual person does not also enjoy, and that there never was. I have a right to marry a person of the opposite sex; so does any homosexual. The fact that the homosexual chooses or prefers to marry a person of the same sex leads to the rather silly notion that he ought to have a right established in law to enable that choice. Accomplishing the legal establishment of that arbitrary choice of the homosexual person as a new right under the law must, by its very nature, entail a legal redefinition of the normative family, and the family is the primal social unit. Society is built on families. As the family goes, so goes the whole culture. That’s just a social fact.
Until now, the law has had no need to look further into the details of the normative family makeup, because it has always been “known” to consist of a man, a woman and their children, and any orphans, widows or unfortunates adopted into the family. It has always been so clear and obvious that there was no need to look any closer at it. Until now. And now, having started down this path, we need to ask where it is going. If homosexuals can form a married union under civil law, then, why not threesomes? Why not foursomes? Why not siblings? Why can’t a girl marry an aircraft carrier? What about pedophiles; shouldn’t they be able to marry their little victims?
Until very recent history, in the West, homosexuality has been hidden in the gutter alongside adultery, fornication, incest and other forms of sexual licensuousness. But now it has become the “in” fad among celebrities and pseudo-sophisticates, and the movement to promote open public faggotry has made inroads in all parts of American culture, including even a few major Christian denominations. We are hammered with false statistics that say that 10 or more percent of us are homosexual, with nothing whatsoever to back that false claim up. It was born of the sick, demented Kinsey Report that we spoke of on the Freudianism page, and which has been thoroughly refuted. Nowhere near 10 percent choose a homosexual lifestyle.
It gets worse. There are movements to promote homosexual adoption of children, and it’s already being done. Not only are other people’s children being increasingly indoctrinated in public schools about the goodness and normalcy of homosexuality, but now innocent orphan children are being let out for adoption into homes in which they will live and be raised under the specter of sodomy and perversion under new names, and it’s all blessed by civil law.
So a tiny minority in America, perhaps two or three percent, has gained a huge spotlight for itself, garnered pity and sympathy everywhere, and is now able to brow-beat the majority into complying with a ridiculous agenda of advancing its cause, with the Democrat Party doing all the heavy lifting. If you think the outcome of this ongoing battle will have no affect on you personally, you are wrong. It will adversely affect all of society, and society is where you live, and where your children will grow up.
I’m not going to go over ground I’ve gone over before and belabor the usual false premises put forth by the homosexual culture in their promotion of open public faggotry everywhere. See the Homo-Nazi page if you want to go over it again. Essentially, the lies involve how the homo can’t help himself because he was born homo; homos just have to have perverted sex, because, well, they just have to, and chastity is not an option for them as it is for normal people. All lies. As is the HIV=AIDS=Death Hoax lie that is still being used to elevate homosexuals to some kind of hero status.
But, the argument goes, the homosexual couple who are committed to each other in a loving relationship should be able to live and operate the same as a heterosexual couple. It is a false argument. See the Homo-Nazi page for the details; essentially, a homosexual “committed relationship” doesn’t last too long, when compared to the heterosexual variant. Homosexuals are notoriously promiscuous. Even long lasting relationships are episodically interrupted by bouts of infidelity, which may be forgiven, or not. Homosexuals are far, far more promiscuous and licentious than heterosexuals. That’s just the way it is. Actual statistics are backed up by much higher disease rates.
The public school homosexual indoctrination books “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy’s New Roommate” would be more accurately and more honestly titled “Heather Has Two Step-Mommies, Three Ex-Mommies and an Ex-Daddy” and “Daddy’s Fifth New Roommate.” If you think normal marriage divorce rates are bad and getting worse, you haven’t even looked at the same rates for the homos. What happens to adopted kids? Homosexual “divorce” means custody battles, most usually ending in neither party keeping them. They usually go back to the foster parents, the orphanage or wherever they came from. Somewhat the worse for wear.
Again, I must ask:
How did we ever get to this point? We are a Western culture descended from the history of Western Civilization. Our cultural morality, our collective sense of right and wrong, even our basis for our American Constitution and American civil law, comes straight out of our Judeo-Christian Ethos. Our identifying ethos came out of our common religion, which the overwhelming majority of us still claim, to this day, to hold to. See the Catholic Thinker page for the symbiotic relationship between Old Testament morality, New Testament morality, and American civil law.
This is our very foundation, as a people. Our morality comes from our religion.
When someone said, put your religion aside for a minute, if we were stupid enough to do that, did we remember to pick it up again afterward? Or is our religion still somewhere out there on the sidelines, and no longer a crucial part of our lives. Have we come to the point where we only pick up our religion again on the way into Church or Synagogue, and then drop it on the sideline again after the services are over? We claim, in our overwhelming majority, to be religious people. Have we, too, become liars?
Let’s look at what our religion teaches on the subject. Here is only a partial, cursory gathering of prohibitions against homosexuality.
There’s really nothing complicated about this. It’s just gone too far. We have turned our faces too far away from God and His Word, and for too long. We have allowed an alien “morality” to invade our psyches and even our laws. It has come to the point of Orwellian “Newspeak” language in usage, in which bad is good, good is bad, and everybody has lost track of the reality of the issue. This is not our morality speaking most loudly in public here today.
It is the morality of BMDFP10 and the Democrat Party. It is supported by the SLIMC1 , and by leading academics everywhere, and by a thundering herd of TTRSTF4 , who all agree, and swear that all the hype, numbers and falsehoods are true.
Nevertheless, these lies are not true. morality has not changed. Right and wrong have not changed. God has not moved. Only we have moved. We need to turn our faces back toward God.
One face at a time.

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from you, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:
When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?
A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?
Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear glasses for nearsightedness. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?
Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep in the same house as their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

I don’t know about your neighborhood, but around here things are different. Last time we had a pig roast, all the neighbors smelled it, and they all came over to get some. And I don’t know what to pity more, your lack of knowledge of salvation history, or the fact that you cannot do a simple thing like tell right from wrong.
Jesus Himself put aside much of the details of the Old Law, of which there were some 613 Commandments, without destroying the foundation. It was His repeatedly breaking of the Sabbath Law that got him into trouble with the Pharisees in the first place; you are excused for not knowing that. Dietary laws were largely done away with in Acts 10 and Acts 11; circumcision and more laws were done away with in Acts 15 and Acts 21.
Have you ever heard of a blithering idiot? Don’t look now, AllWellAndGood, but you’re starting to blither.
You have shown how much you despise God and His law, but, if your would like to replace the morality of the Judeo-Christian Ethos that is the foundation of Western Civilization, then, what exactly would you like to replace it with? The ends justify the means? You can’t make and omelet without breaking eggs? Shut up and get on the cattle car? What, exactly? Try to think real hard about it, AllWellAndGood, and give me a set of moral norms that are better than what we have here in America.

Thank you; I must be slipping. Quite correct.AllWellAndGood probably can’t quite define or name his preferred moral standard, so I’ll name it for him. AllWellAndGood most likely follows the ethos of BMDFP10 , the AllWellAndgood "family", atheists, Obamunists and other Democrats. I mean Marxists.

Allwellandgood, If you are reading this, it was an incredibly amusing comment. Vic, Ever heard of minding your own business? What business is it of yours if two guys decide to sleep with each other. Sure the bible forbids it, but as far as I know believing in the bible is strictly optional business, at least till this point. Social control, either from left or the right, goes against the spirit of libertarianism. We don't need commies to tell us how to run our businesses and we sure as hell don't want bible thumping morons to tell us whom to sleep with and whom not to.

Maybe I missed the punch line, but your submission does not seem to fit your name.
This may be hard for you to understand over there in India, but we have representative law here in America, and anything that gets legislated into law here is “my business” as a participating citizen. This country is what we citizens make it.
What you call “social control” should indeed go against the spirit of Libertarianism, as I said in the Opposing Libertarianism page. We are not a Libertarian people.
I take the term “Bible thumping moron” to be a compliment, coming from an aimless, directionless, pointless, unthinking moron with no moral standard whatsoever.

From: GodLovesMe4 Who I am
I agree with Vic 100%. To the person who wrote this blog, your insane. I can not support nor stand someone that calls themselves a child of god and yet put down another person for liking the same sex. People like you get me sick. I’m open for all and I have respect for all. Which I know for a fact the bible says love one another. Homosexuals or Heterosexuals. We should not change someone for who they are for God Makes No Mistakes! Our jobs as Christians, we are supposed to show people that God LOVES them for who they are. People like you scare and turn people away.

From: Vic Biorseth
Your submission is a little confused and confusing; it begins by saying you agree with me, then it says you disagree with me and states that I am insane. I’m sorry if I made you sicker than you were before. I’m sure you prefer to gather with obstinate unrepentant sinners, but I prefer to not do that. Loving the sinner does not preclude condemning the sin. You will have to point out for me any Scripture verses you’re talking about here; I’ve read them all and that inclusion – Homosexuals and Heterosexuals – does not come readily to mind.
God makes no mistakes, but people make mistaken free-will choices in life that turn them away from God. Don’t blame God for making you what you are. Saying you have no choice is tantamount to saying the adulterer, or the fornicator, or the masturbator, or even the bank robber has no choice. That is wrong. You always have a choice.
I hope I scare and turn someone away from the path of pure pleasure for its own sake, and from the evil, perversion and enslavement to the world that it leads to. Jonah scared and turned away the people of Nineveh, and thus saved them. Sodom and Gomorrah didn’t fare so well.
What you need to learn is that homosexuality opposes God and His nature. You and you alone are responsible for your “sexual identity.” Don’t blame God, and don’t blame nature. Last of all, don’t blame me.

The Death of Morality Pages
Beginning, perhaps, with the Reformation, with a mighty surge in the 1930s with the social acceptance of artificial contraception, social standards today are now so low as to make a harlot blush. Professional politicians of all Parties cooperate with Marxist-materialists in all other fields to actually suppress religion and the morality that flows from religion, not only in the public square, but everywhere, following the moral degradation of popular entertainment.
Refuting Free Love: the whole 60’s era of Make Love Not War & Sexual Revolution. From Revolution, to Riots and Anarchy, to Sit-Ins, to Love-Ins, the horrible results demand a refuting of free love.
Artificial Contraception: Tool of Materialism with which to destroy Monotheism. Acceptance of Artificial Contraception marked the single most destructive turning point in the history of Western Culture, marking the end of moral norms, foretelling tolerance of anything at all.
The Sexual Revolution: Sexual Freedom, or enslavement and degradation? The Sexual Revolution was supposed to free us, rather than enslave us, and uplift us, rather than degrade us. It was a lie from the beginning; it degraded whole cultures and attacked human dignity.
Welcome to America's Protected Multi-Billion Dollar Masturbation Industry . That the government simultaneously censors Christian expression and protects pornography, the main product of the Giant Masturbation Industry, is a pure national disgrace.
Abortion in America: Supreme Court takes complete charge of American Government. Through decisions regarding abortion, the Court arbitrarily and without opposition, systematically undid representative, legislated law in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and Made New Law.
Being pro choice or pro woman's right to choose equals being pro abortion. Saying you are pro choice, or pro right to choose, is saying you are pro abortion. Period. Pro choice equals pro abortion.
Femi-Nazi -ism: The Leftist, authoritarian Movement that commandeered Feminism. The Femi-Nazi Movement seeks to modify our language and culture, restrict our speech and press, and create and alienate yet another "disenfranchised" group.
Homo Nazi -ism assaults the Western Culture ethos of our American majority. The grass-roots Homo Nazi is for the most part a simple immoral selfist. But the homo-Nazi in the rarified atmosphere of city, state and national politics is a much more sinister character.
What does normalized, mainstreamed, open homosexuality say about us as a people? Our argument against open homosexuality is an argument for the continuance of Western Civilization, the Western Culture Ethos and the normative family.
So the Marxists get their wish again: an openly homosexual American military. An openly homosexual American military has been the goal of Secularists, Marxists and other Democrats for decades.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
