Skip to comments.Finally, "Straight Talk" From the Homosexual Agenda
Posted on 10/20/2008 12:11:47 AM PDT by TruthHound
We all love and appreciate honesty, and its finally coming from the most unlikely of sourcesthe homosexual agenda. No matter what side of the issues of homosexual behavior you may find yourself supporting, a standing ovation is appropriate.
John Corvino, I salute you.
You see, back in August, my jaw hit the floor when I read a column Corvino wrote that was breathtakingly honest. You see, for many years, the homosexual agendas intentions, goals, and beliefs have been shrouded in smokescreens of equality, benefits, and fairness. Yet Corvino provided a breath of fresh air, telling us what those who engage in homosexual behavior really want: moral approval.
Of course, many of us have known this all along, but its nice to finally hear about it from the other side. This groundbreaking concession now provides an opportunity for an honest public discourse on what homosexual advocates are really after. They want your heart and soul. Its not enough to just be tolerant.
Now, I realize that you probably believe that your fair-mindedness is sufficient for any number of circumstances in life, but on this issue, you have been duped. You see, moral approval goes well beyond fairness or tolerance. It requires you to look upon the homosexual behavior of another and say to yourself and others, Thats a good thing. Moral approval means that you plan to teach it to your kids as righteous and true, and not just as something that other people do (and then secretly pray that you never find your kids doing). Moral approval means that you must reject other people, businesses, and persons who do not morally approve of homosexual behavior.
Most of all, moral approval means that you not only permit it in your home, but you embrace it. You applaud TV shows that celebrate it, Web sites that promote it, books that endorse it, and you may even choose to practice it. Moral approval goes to the very essence of our person.
Not convinced that anyone could want something that radical from you? Well, theres no need to accept something just because I say it. Instead, look at the strategy employed by those who promote this agendain the courts. That alone tells you something. Courts are not sought by people who simply want you to tolerate an idea. Courts order people to do things. From just this small sample of court cases, you can see that tolerance or simple access to certain benefits is no longer enough. What is desired is court-ordered moral approval:
· In New Jersey, the state launched an investigation of a Christian ministry after it declined to host a civil union ceremony for two women on its property. The women could have held their ceremony anywhereand eventually did hold it somewhere elsebut they filed a complaint anyway because they loathed the ministrys lack of moral approval.
· In New Mexico, a same-sex couple filed a human rights complaint against a photographer who declined to photograph their commitment ceremony. The photographer lost and was ordered to cough up more than $6,600 in attorneys fees. Before the ruling, the couple hired a different photographer from the myriad of other ones available, but still chose to retaliate against the first photographer for her lack of moral approval.
· In Georgia, a counselor was fired because she referred a woman in a same-sex relationship to another counselor for relationship advice. The second counselor provided service that the woman herself characterized as exemplary. Yet she still demandedand obtainedthe first counselors termination for her lack of moral approval.
· In California, a woman in a same-sex relationship sued a doctor who declined to artificially inseminate her, claiming discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. The woman misrepresented her marital status to the doctor, who has a policy not to perform the procedure on unmarried women regardless of their orientation. Other doctors successfully performed the procedure, and she has since borne three healthy children, yet the woman continues to demand the first doctors moral approval in court.
Note that having other options did not satisfy the people involved in the above same-sex relationships. The point to see: they demand moral approval. And some will go to court, have you fired, or otherwise seek your demise to get it. And they dont care if you have to act against your conscience, just so long as you can ease theirs.
Corvino accurately states that moral truth matters. But theres no longer any guessing about what truth he and those like him are referring to: its the one they have defined, and youd better accept it. An abundance of tolerance will not suffice.
IOW, this and future generations MUST be indoctrinated that the GENDER of their chosen mate should be of NO consideration or consequence.
They will legislate your morality and castigate you for any resistance.
This is happening now.
For some reason the phrase “sanction of the victim” comes to mind...gonna have to break out the Ayn Rand classics pretty soon.
And we thought “morality” could not be legislated...
That little bromide has always been misunderstood .....
It means, YOUR morality cannot be legislated. OURS can.
And litigated, too.
That's why Evan Wolfson (formerly of Lambda Legal, now with another gay group pursuing the same objective) has been working for over 20 years on a Supreme Court decree that would mandate absolute moral equality for homosexual perversion, nullifying (he thinks) thirty-plus centuries of moral teaching and revelation.
That’s what I meant. They are trying to legislate and litigate their “morality” upon the rest of us.
(That’s why I put “morality” in quotes.)
I'm really sick of hearing "gay" every time I turn on the TV.
I quit the "Y" when I was approached by one when I was 12. She was maybe 16, 17. "They do solicitate". I told my older brother about the incident and he told my mom. Pretty frightening experience.
The law...To all homosexuals...Do what you want but stop including me and stop telling me you're right and my "moral conscience" is wrong. It's not discrimination.
The next time a leftist whines that you can't legislate morality, tell him that legislation defines morality. Legislation, by definition, determines which behaviors are legal and which are not.
In other words, you can *ONLY* legislate morality!
I don’t care how they phrase it or ask for it. As a Christian, as an American, as a Human Being, I would never accept peoples choice of homoseuxality as normal or moral or okay.
Oh and don’t bother. EVERYTHING WE DO IS A CHOICE..
Acquiescing to their demands has only made them more aggressive, more voracious and more angry in their demands. They feel as though they're reaching the home stretch now, and of course Obama's wife has said something about "gays" will have the best friend they've ever had with Them in office. And if Obama wins, he'll get to pick most likely one to three SCOTUS justices. This election is a maker/breaker.

Thanks for the ping.
They want your heart and soul. Its not enough to just be tolerant."
Yes, as the author says, it's something many of us have understood all along, and I have long agreed with your comments TH. For me it was clear in college, some 25 to 30 years ago.
