The homos will fail in one respect, but in the other, they will have succeeded in relegating matrimony to an antiquated and stuffy custom of which few, in one generation, will partake. The language will change; wife/husband, bride/groom; mother/father; what will they mean to your children's children?
Weisshaupt, I need to ask and with all due respect, of what exists now that is endangered do you believe is worth fighting for?
Marriage is an old, antiquated, useless custom that gays desperately need access to. Those effects didn't happen because Gay Marriage was made legal- they happened because the Socialist State ultimately wants marriage and families to become a relic. Changing the meaning of a word will not make Gays become accepted as normal, nor will it alter the terms of our own relationships with our spouse, family and children. Words have no power but what we decide to give them. Social Proof is what will matter, and ultimately Gay Marriage will wither and die if we refuse to change our own behavior in the matter. If the Amish can preserve their community, customs and beliefs in the face of the Fed - so can we. The mistake here is to assume there is one culture we are battling over - and in so doing you have accepted the enemies premise - that there should be only one culture -one ring to rule them all. That legality is equivalent to morality. Is that the lesson you want to teach you children? That Right and Wrong are dictated by the State?
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
It is the socialists who are trying to force a change in the attitudes and behavior of the majority - to force them under the dominion of a unified culture and power. They will read "Two Mommys" to your kindergartner regardless of if Gay Marriage is allowed or not. They will teach "tolerance" of all manner of perversity and hand out fisting kits and free abortions, no matter what is happening in reality. They will complain bitterly about racial discrimination even if there is none about. They will complain about the unfair treatment of women, and ignore the biological facts that explain the disparities. They will claim the rich stole money from the poor, even when they have eliminated the rich. They will lie, cheat and steal in their quest for power, and if possible they will do so using the government as a cloak to give their actions an appearance of legitimacy
They have no interest in reality - but are more powerful when their lies correspond with it - because that is how they are binding individuals to them - using government force to create issues and conflict to grow their power base. Anything that weakens the enemies ability to bind or control will ultimately harm them. If the gays can no longer be used as a locus of power, and rallied to the greater Socialist cause, they will be dropped from the agenda. If Abortion is guaranteed and the GOP isn't coming after your woman parts, how many adherents would the left loose? At this point it is about weakening the enemy as much as possible.
So what is worth fighting for? We must fight to maintain our own culture - to be free to teach our children according to our values, to live our lives without having to pay tribute to the barbarians. We must fight to be free to exercise our own conscience, and live our lives accordingly. We must ensure our equality before the law in such matters. That is the fight worth fighting.
Trying to use the One Ring for "good" - to prevent sinners from being sinful, will not help us. Being free to live our way, means leaving others free to live theirs, even if they choose to do it in sin and depravity - because in so doing they to become Social Proof of the folly of other ways - living examples that betray the real aims of the enemy. The utter failure of Gays to uphold the standards of Marriage demonstrates the sinfulness of their ways. The utter ruin and despair brought on my allowing a tribe to sacrifice its own innocent babies, serves as its own warning. They become our Social Traffic Lights - we simply point to them and tell our children "That is why we don't do that"
I know I have a minority opinion here, and I respect that others feel differently. I just feel it is very unwise to try and use the power of Government to prevent Sin. If God has a problem with certain individuals, I am sure he is capable of dealing with them without our help. The government should not be setting and enforcing the moral standards for our community - WE SHOULD BE.
