Who owns the language? It may sound stupid, or it may sound merely rhetorical, but that is a vitally important question that demands your attention. It ranks right up there with who owns academe, and who owns formal education, and who owns the news media, and who owns all the major publishing houses, and who owns the entertainment industry, and who owns the Masturbation Industry, and who owns all the Federal Reserve banks, and who owns our Political Parties. Revolutionizing our language may be at the root of revolutionizing our whole human culture. Who owns the English Dictionary?
Call a homosexual a homosexual these days and you may be charged with a hate crime, or worse. Why? A homosexual is a homosexual, after all. But, just as we did in the Criminal Alien debate, we have allowed the militant homosexuals to modify our language, right under our noses, and we all just let that go by.
Once again, Glenn Beck lit my fire on this "Gay Marriage" topic a few days ago, demonstrating how someone as smart as he is can be sucked in by a crap sandwich disguised as juicy cheeseburger. The sentence that set me off was this (paraphrasing):
Glenn has no problem with "gays" getting married, and thinks the federal government should stay out of it. He's got it exactly backwards. It is the militant homos, as part of the Homo-Nazi Movement, who are forcing legal acceptance, if not enshrinement, of homosexuality on the whole country through federal law. Not the opposition. Not the heteros. Not the Conservatives. Not the Constitutionalists. Not the government. The Homos.
Against the Constitution.
Glenn is partially right; if it is not listed in Article One Section Eight it shouldn't even be addressed in any Constitutionally legislated law. But the militant homos, like every other blatantly immoral or blatantly anti-Constitution Alinskyite group, pushes the attack, not through Legislation, not through Congress, where legitimate law originates. No, they push it through the already much corrupted court system, by seeking unconstitutional Legal Precedent, to be used to establish "constitutional rights" that do not exist in the Constitution.
That's exactly how we wound up with the Constitutional Principle of Separation of Church and State, which is not in the Constitution.
That's exactly how we wound up with a Constitutional Right to commit Abortion, which is not in the Constitution.
In every such case, the court system betrays an animosity to the Constitution, by wrongfully adjudicating cases at the federal level that it shouldn't even be adjudicating at the federal level, because the matter is completely outside the scope of the Constitution. But that doesn't stop them; they do it anyway, and Congress just stands there and lets it happen. Every time. And we keep getting more Liberal judges and justices, and less Constitutionalists among them all.
There is a purpose behind all of this, and Glenn Beck doesn't see it.
Every single time, time after time, on issue after issue, the false charge is "you are unconstitutionally imposing your values on me" when the true facts of the matter are that they are legally but unconstitutionally imposing their immorality on all the rest of us.
Why does nobody see the pattern here?
This Gay Marriage moral assault may be the worst and the most ultimately damaging of them all. If it wins, it will work to destroy the very root of our whole culture: our whole Judeo-Christian Ethos and Morality. The foundation stone of our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. It will be the elimination of any common cultural sense of right and wrong, vice and virtue, decency and indecency, good and evil.
Government of decent civilizations has a legitimate interest in upholding marriage between one man and one woman. In America, by her Constitution, marriage is a matter of state and/or local community standards, but the state and local governments, if their constituency is decent and civilized, will always protect the principle of one man, one woman marriage, for the sake of a stable society.
Normative one man, one woman marriage is the foundation of the family, and the family is the primal social unit. As the family goes, so goes the larger culture. This is pure natural law; it is instinctively right; it is written on the heart of man by God. No other form of marriage makes sense.
When we allow a minority to legally change the nature of the family we invite cultural doom upon ourselves. The tail is wagging us to death. See It's our morality, stupid for a grand example of how it works.
We have got to get back to a sense of shamefulness for shameful sins and recognizing immoral choices for what they are, back to the point of anathematizing open sodomites from decent company. Otherwise, we will eventually go the way of the ancient Sodom-ites and Gomorrah-ites. A people will either bless and welcome open homosexuality or they will curse and anathematize it.
So, one final question: Who the hell are we?
Exactly what kind of a people are we?

I read and value all your columns and am still amazed at where you get the energy to write it all. Currently I am deep into everything I can read and watch (EWTN) about G.K. Chesterton as a humorous,mystical antidote to the depressing facts of the 21st century. Thanks for your passion and love of the unchangeable Truths of the Roman Catholic Church.

Thank you; sometimes I feel driven to write whatever is bugging me. Maybe if I couldn't type I'd be a real blabbermouth, because so many things bug me these terrible days.
I, too, love Chesterton. Orthodoxy is one of the best books I ever read. Marcie doesn't like the unusual accent and mannerisms of the EWTN version of Chesterton, but I do appreciate it. It is (I think) just the way the real Chesterton spoke, being portrayed by a fine actor. It's hard for some to get past appearances and the extraneous stuff sufficiently to appreciate the content. And the content, coming from Chesterton, is gold.
May the blessing of the Lord be upon you.
If you want to build a completely independent and personally owned actual website, like this one, this is how you do it.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

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