Skip to comments.Can't Even Go to the Park (for fear of exposing kids to homo-pervert PDA)
Posted on 08/30/2011 10:16:41 AM PDT by markomalley
The same people who say I shouldn't impose my morality on them, are imposing immorality on me and my children to the point that I literally have a hard time even leaving my home anymore to do something as simple as visit the park. And this is freedom?
I am a Catholic stay-at-home mother of seven, and I live in the state of Massachusetts where "gay marriage" has been legal for seven years and it's just one aspect of the larger secular agenda. Because we have so many little children, it takes a phenomenal effort to go anywhere. We have only filled our truck with gasoline twice this entire summer vacation. We go to Mass and we go two miles up the road to a small outdoor swimming pool. That's pretty much it.
At the pool this summer there were homosexual couples with children and, while I was polite as my own young daughters doted on the baby with two "mommies", I also held my breath in anticipation of awkward questions - questions I'm not ready to answer. My young daughters are all under the age of eight and they are not old enough to understand why a baby would have two women calling themselves "mommies".
When there were two men relaxing at the side of the pool unnaturally close to each other, effeminately rubbing elbows and exchanging doe-eyes, I was again anxiously watching my children hoping they wouldn't ask questions. They don't see Daddy do that with anyone but Mommy. We haven't been back to the pool for a couple of weeks, except once but it rained. The truth is, now I don't really want to go back.
So what am I harping about?
Today we decided to go to the park. We live near a nice park that is safe, clean and quiet. Two of my daughters were in the sandbox, one on the slide, the other on the swings, and as I lifted the baby out of his stroller I looked up to see four women laughing at a baby boy as he was swinging in one of those bucket baby swings. That seems harmless enough, but I'm so sensitized to the strangeness in my community that I've developed this ever-present jumpiness whenever I'm in public. Sure enough, two of the women, so happy to see a baby boy laughing, embraced and remained standing there rubbing each other's back in a way that was clearly not just friendly affection.
This is my community. I find myself unable to even leave the house anymore without worrying about what in tarnation we are going to encounter. We are responsible citizens. We live by the rules, we pay our taxes, we take care of our things. I'm supposed to be able to influence what goes on in my community, and as a voter I do exercise that right. But I'm outnumbered. I can't even go to normal places without having to sit silently and tolerate immorality. We all know what would happen if I asked two men or two women to stop displaying, right in front of me and my children, that they live in sodomy.
So now I go on a rant.
Our taxes are being used to fund contraception, abortion and IVF already. That offends me in ways that are inexpressible. I read last December in the Wall Street Journal how two men near us are raising two assembled daughters after announcing to the world how they killed two other siblings in surrogate mothers in India. Let me guess? I shouldn't offend them though, right? And what's next at the park? A needle exchange drop-box for heroin users? No joke. These things are not isolated, it is all the same issue at a fundamental level. We're being pushed to accept immorality and it's not just on TV and in Washington D.C. It's right in front of us too.
We fund a lot of illegal immigrants here (just ask the President about his auntie) and helping people who really need help is not something I'd ever oppose. But it's still haunting me that just this week I learned of an illegal immigrant who killed a young man innocently out for a ride on his motorcycle. The illegal immigrant, who didn't have a license, was so drunk he didn't notice when he hit a motorcyclist and then dragged the 23 year old college graduate a quarter of a mile while people were yelling at him to stop. When he finally did stop, the young man was still alive until the drunk driver put the car in reverse and backed up over him before driving away. He's charged with vehicular homicide and "reckless conduct creating a risk to a child." He had a six year old in the car with him.
Do you think knowing this happened about seven miles from my home makes me afraid to leave the house? You bet it does. But that just adds to everything else I'm being asked to tolerate. Seriously, is this freedom?
But, but, but...”What consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes doesn’t affect me!”
It’s too bad we can’t see very far down the road. Otherwise we might avoid getting stuck in these sinkholes.
What does the author want the government to do?
Does she want the police to arrest gay couples who appear in public? I don’t, even though I disapprove of their way of life.
The big cities are lost, gone as were Sodom and Gomorrah!
Simple gestures of affection are one thing and should not be a problem. I agree with you regarding the author’s insinuations, should we incarcerate them for showing affection?
Perverted acts in public, regardless gay or straight, are a different matter all together.
If tasered do you get a twofer?
Good Post. My community is a haven for the homeless. Now, I have compassion for them, I volunteered for two years with my churches homeless ministry, every saturday night. I had to stop to spend more time with my kids.
Now it’s gotten to where I wouldn’t even take my kids to the library, or go to the park.
My idea of government is to have a community where we can all feel safe. If I’m the one paying the tax dollars, but I can’t use the library or the park, or even walk down the street after dark and feel safe, is that justice? Is that the role of government? There is a balance, but the pendulum has swung to far to favoring the unwise and unhealthy over those that just want to raise their kids and pay their bills. We need to restore a balance that says - ok we want to help you, but we’re not going to allow to run roughshod over the rights of others just because you happen to be poor, which may or may not be the result of your own choices.
The normal was unable to resist-inter alia-the perversion of our culture. The next step is obvious, lower the age of consent to allow the harvesting of the children. Such is the price of weakness.
When California goes (where it all starts), it will go big. When that happens, we'll have the great cleansing the prophets of old warned us about.
If you look at a map of the U.S. you'll see that all the low lying liberal areas will be lost to the sea. The only areas that will be left will be the red or mostly conservative areas. Any leftists that survive the cleaning will still end up getting cleansed in a different way. There will be no "tolerance" for them.
In fact, Einsteins predicted polar shift will cleanse the entire globe.
I think the big "scare" of 2012 may be this polar shift.
I am not going to run away because these groups brag about how they are taking over. My livelihood is here. I raise my children with strong traditional values and will never run away from anybody.
Unfortunately parks are one of the places they are at.
They should all be destroyed like the demon-scum they are.
I got news for you, this crap is in the 'burbs, too.
With this subject, one person’s affectionate gesture is another’s perverted act.
We need morality police...
Here is what you do - get the hell out of queerville. Find a nice small town in the midwest. Try Wyoming for starters.
Well, if you see two dudes buck naked doing the reach around on a swing set I’d ay that you have crossed over to the severely perverted.
Don’t you dare start giving me hope. I’m heavily invested in being depressed in the state of humanity.
I hadn’t read about Einstein and polar shifts - very cool stuff.
