Gays' great game plan leads to political correctness gone amok.

Gays' great game plan leads to political correctness gone amok By Joe Fitzgerald Recent Columns by Joe Fitzgerald Monday, February 9, 2004

As homosexual activists reveled in the victory that was theirs last week, the sanctioning of their aberrance by the state's highest court, even the most militant among them must have marveled over the ease of their triumph.

It began with a plea for tolerance, remember?

All they asked for was acceptance, which is different from approval, and who but a hatemonger could be against that?

So how did we get from that point to where we are now, where we've been ordered by judges, not answerable to us, to not only accept homosexual partnerships but also bestow upon them every right of marriage, an institution ordained and defined from the beginning of time as the union of a man and a woman?

How is it that, by the imperial power and political whim of four ideological renegades in robes, we are told we must forfeit standards handed down through the ages just to accommodate trendy mores?

``Much of America has lost its moorings,'' Sen. Robert Byrd, the West Virginia Democrat, noted back in 1996 when the U.S. Senate, by a vote of 85-14, reaffirmed marriage meant uniting one man and one woman. ``We've lost our way. What took thousands of years to build is being dismantled in a generation with a speed that is awesome.''

That same year, the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth sponsored a State House exhibit called ``The Shared Heart,'' which, according to its organizers, offered ``affirming images of lesbian, gay and bisexual young people.''

Those who protested that flagrant proselytism were maligned as ``homophobes,'' a word invented to stifle opposition by intimidating dissenters. It was, and remains, an effective tool.

Indeed, a few months earlier in New York, a nationally prominent gay activist named Kevin Jennings gave a speech, ``Winning the Cultural War,'' in which he boasted of inroads being made here in Massachusetts.

``Effective framing of the issue was the key to the success of the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth,'' he said. ``We explained how homophobia represents a threat to students' safety by creating a climate where suicide is common.

``We threw our opponents onto the defensive and left them back-pedaling from day one. In Massachusetts, no one could speak against our frame: `Why, yes, I do think students should kill themselves.' This allowed us to set the terms for the debate.''

Give him credit for a great game plan because people repulsed by what's happening now are still terrified of appearing hateful, which is what brought us to this moment where normalcy sits in the back seat while perversity sits at the wheel.

And it is not hateful to say that.

Take it from the writer, there is no hatred here.

Nor is it hateful to urge those who feel the same way to contact legislators immediately, demanding corrective action.

That won't go over well in some circles, but bear in mind the crowd that once pleaded for tolerance has become the most intolerant of all, thumbing its nose at values that have defined us and daring us to offer objection.

Accept that challenge.

Call gay marriage what it is, an abomination, political correctness gone amok.

When you know in your heart what you're saying is right, it doesn't make it easier to speak out; it just makes it a whole lot harder to remain silent.

In Massachusetts this week, silence is just another word for surrender.

Don't. Judges notwithstanding, your feelings matter, too.

Yes... the heterophobes have moved from mere tolerance to demanding society accept their lifestyle as legally and morally equivalent to heterosexuality. With the help of the Mass Supremes they have won a victory they thought would never happen. The culture war has been joined.

The gay lobby is turning what used to be mere disgust at their lifestyle into into something darker. They already had the right to shove whatever they wanted wherever they wanted, provided it was with their partner(s). Now they are attempting to shove it down our throats. Tolerance has it's limits.

"...heterophobes..."

Excellent counter to use against the "other side". What are "they" afraid of? This confirms to me that it's all about money. There is big bucks to be made being homosexual. I WILL NOT use that pc tag that starts with "g" they give themselves. They are what they are and they know it.

That something darker is not something you want to know.

One day soon people might wake up out of their drunken stupor and wonder how in the hell we as a country ever in our right minds ever granted legislative protection and rights to one because of their sexual "preference" realizing that "preference" is a product of free will and not an immutable, morally neutral characteristic like race or gender.

How do you ever plan to undo the damage already done?

If gay marriage passes, what will happen when two homosexuals in a Catholic church decide they want to get married and have a church wedding?

Surely the church cannot discriminate.

No, it hasn't gone amok at all, IMO. It's all well orchestrated. The gays, the flag, the Ten Commandments, changing school names, gun control, and all things politically correct are used by the Left to practice using the courts to achieve judicially what they can't achieve legislatively....and, so far, it's working.

How do I plan to undo the damage done? I cannot. But, the next time I encounter a homo, instead of ignoring "him", I'll give him a look that says that there is no phobia involved in what I am thinking. In fact, there are a few starting to frequent the tavern I go to. I might have to start a discussion about this subject after setting the bar up for about three shots of whatever whiskey the patrons prefer. It's not going to undo the damage done, but it will definitely put a damper on whatever exultation they are feeling over recent developments.

Indeed, a few months earlier in New York, a nationally prominent gay activist named Kevin Jennings gave a speech, ``Winning the Cultural War,'' in which he boasted of inroads being made here in Massachusetts.

"Effective framing of the issue was the key to the success of the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth," he said. "We explained how homophobia represents a threat to students' safety by creating a climate where suicide is common."


This speech was, at one time, posted on Kevin Jennings' GLSEN website. However, it has been pulled. Here's an excerpt with a bit more detail:

Governor’s Commission Lies Continually About ‘Safety’ and ‘Suicide’

"Safety
A speech by a homosexual activist in 1995 revealed that he had used "safety" to delude Gov. Weld and the state legislature into adopting the homosexual agenda for the schools of Massachusetts. The speech was titled Winning the Culture War and was given by Kevin Jennings, Executive Director of the "Gay and Lesbian and Straight Teachers’ Network," at the "Human Rights Campaign Fund Leadership Conference" on March 5, 1995.

"If the Radical Right can succeed in portraying us as preying on children, we will lose. Their language ­ ‘promoting homosexuality’ is one example ­ is laced with subtle and not-so-subtle innuendo that we are ‘after their kids.’ We must learn from the abortion struggle, where the clever claiming of the term ‘pro-life’ allowed those who opposed abortion on demand to frame the issue to their advantage, to make sure that we do not allow ourselves to be painted into a corner before the debate even begins.

In Massachusetts the effective reframing of this issue was the key to the success of the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth. We immediately seized upon the opponent’s calling card ­ safety ­ and explained how homophobia represents a threat to students’ safety by creating a climate where violence, name-calling, health problems, and suicide are common. Titling our report "Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth," we automatically threw our opponents onto the defensive and stole their best line of attack. This framing short-circuited their arguments and left them back-pedaling from day one.

Finding the effective frame for your community is the key to victory. It must be linked to universal values that everyone in the community has in common.

In Massachusetts, no one could speak up against our frame and say, ‘Why, yes, I do think students should kill themselves’: this allowed us to set the terms for the debate.

In Massachusetts, we made creating an environment where youth could speak out our number one priority. We know that, confronted with real-live stories of youth who had suffered from homophobia, our opponents would have to attack people who had been victimized once, which put them in a bully position from which it would be hard to emerge looking good. More importantly, we made sure these youth met with elected officials so that, the next time these officials had to vote on something, there would be a specific face and story attached to the issue. We wanted them to have an actual kid in mind when they had to cast their votes. We won the vote in the Senate 33-7 as a result..."


Some other comments by Kevin Jennings:

Young Gay Activists Making a Difference

"It's probably no coincidence that the past decade, during which Hyde has observed a growth in youth activism, coincides with the proliferation of Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs) in public high schools in Massachusetts and around the country. Back in 1992, just a handful of GSAs existed in the Bay State; now, more than half of its 300 hundred public high schools have active GSAs. While the primary focus of the groups is promoting tolerance and safety for all students, they allow students to branch out in other ways as well. ``I think it's just hard to overstate how important these bodies have been," says Kevin Jennings, executive director of the National Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). ``Because what they've done is they are kind of the place where these young people learn about leadership skills, how to be activists, and [students] are coming into college with already several years of effective organizing experience behind them. For a lot of us in the LGBT movement who are my age, it was on-the-job training if you would," laughs the 39 year-old Jennings. ``I'm looking at students who apply for internships here now who are 18 and already have 12 leadership positions with LGBT-related activities. ...It's amazing." ...

Needless to say, Jennings is enthusiastic about the influx of young people into the gay rights movement. ``I think we're at a watershed moment in the history of this movement where young people are moving to the front and center of it," he observes. ``And when that has happened in the past with other movements like the African-American civil rights movement or the Vietnam War movement, it was the factor that propelled those movements to victory. So I'm very hopeful for the future."

So how did we get from that point to where we are now...


The homosexual communtiy's well planned and well funded campaign began with the infiltrataion of the APA. Homosexuality was removed from the DSM as a result of homosexual activism, as documented here and here. This was the homosexual community's biggest victory. It permitted them to claim that "homosexuality is normal" and set the stage to present this "normalcy" to the general public via a well planned media campaign, and to kids in the public schools via Kevin Jennings' GLSEN. Kids as young as kindergarten age are now being indoctrinated with "homosexuality is normal."

... bear in mind the crowd that once pleaded for tolerance has become the most intolerant of all, thumbing its nose at values that have defined us and daring us to offer objection.


An excerpt from "Culture of Vice:"

"The homosexual cause has moved naturally from a plea for tolerance to cultural conquest. As Robert Reilly notes a society can withstand any number of person who try to advance their own moral disorders as public policy. But it cannot survive once it adopts the justifications for whose moral disorders as its own. This is what is at stake in the culture war...

For any individual, moral failure is hard to live with because of the rebuke of conscience. Habitual moral failure, what used to be called vice, can be lived with only by obliterating conscience through rationalization. When we rationalize, we convince ourselves that heretofore forbidden desires are permissible. We advance the reality of the desires over the reality of the moral order to which the desires should be subordinated. In our minds we replace the reality of moral order with something more congenial to the activity we are excusing. In short, we assert that bad is good...

It is often difficult to detect rationalizations when one is living directly under their influence, and so historical examples are useful. One of the clearest was offered at the Nuremberg trials by Dr. Karl Brandt, who had been in charge of the Nazi regime's Aktion T-4 euthanasia program. He said in his defense: “...when I said `yes' to euthanasia I did so with the deepest conviction, just as it is my conviction today, that it was right. Death can mean deliverance. Death is life.”

Unlike Dr. Brandt, most people recover from their rationalizations when remorse and reality set back in. But when morally disordered acts become the defining centerpiece of one's life, vice can permanently pervert reason. Entrenched moral aberrations then impel people to rationalize vice not only to themselves but to others as well. Thus rationalizations become an engine for revolutionary change that will affect society as a whole.

The power of rationalization drives the culture war, gives it its particular revolutionary character, and makes its advocates indefatigable. It may draw its energy from desperation, but it is all the more powerful for that. Since failed rationalization means self-recrimination, it must be avoided at all cost. For this reason, the differences over which the culture war is being fought are not subject to reasoned discourse. Persons protecting themselves by rationalizing are interested not in finding the truth, but in maintaining the illusion that allows them to continue their behavior. For them to succeed in this, everyone must accede to their rationalization. This is why revolutionary change is required. The necessity for self-justification requires the complicity of the whole culture. Holdouts cannot be tolerated because they are potential rebukes. The self-hatred, anger, and guilt that a person possessed of a functioning conscience would normally feel from doing wrong are redirected by the rationalization and projected upon society as a whole (if the society is healthy), or upon those in society who do not accept the rationalization.

The homosexual movement's rationalization is far more widely advanced in its claims. According to Jeffrey Levi, former executive director for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, “We (homosexuals)_ are no longer seeking just a right to privacy and a right to protection from wrong. We have a right - as heterosexuals have already - to see government and society affirm our lives.” Since only the act of sodomy differentiates an active homosexual from a heterosexual, homosexuals want “government and society” to affirm that sodomy is morally equivalent to the marital act. “Coming out of the closet” can only mean an assent on the level of moral principle to what would otherwise be considered morally disordered.

And so it must be. If you are going to center your public life on the private act of sodomy, you had better transform sodomy into a highly moral act. If sodomy is a moral disorder, it cannot be legitimately advanced on the legal or civil level. On the other hand, if it is a highly moral act, it should serve as the basis for marriage, family (adoption), and community. As a moral act, sodomy should be normative. If it is normative, it should be taught in our schools as a standard. In fact, homosexuality should be hieratic: active homosexuals should be ordained as priests. All of this is happening. It was predictable. The homosexual cause moved naturally from a plea for tolerance to cultural conquest. How successful that conquest has been can be seen in the poverty of the rhetoric of its opponents. In supporting the Defense of Marriage Act, the best one congressman could do was to say, “America is not yet ready for homosexual marriage,” as if we simply need a decent interval to adjust ourselves to its inevitable arrival.

The homosexual rationalization is so successful that even the campaign against AIDS is part of it, with its message that “everyone is at risk.” If everyone is at risk, the disease cannot be related to specific behavior. Yet homosexual acts are the single greatest risk factor in catching AIDS. This unpleasant fact invites unwelcome attention to the nature of homosexual acts, so it must be ignored..."

Call gay marriage what it is, an abomination, political correctness gone amok

I doubt that any of the Mass Supreme Court justices were gay. I've noticed that the gay 'agenda' is carried out by mostly straight people.

Which forced me to ask,
Where did all start?

Some people say that the current sexual revolution started when some Protestant denominations dropped birth control as a sin in the 1930s

Others claim that all started with the hippies and the 1960s.

At any rate, it seems that most Christians take the Bible as seriously as the horoscope. When it agrees with them, the Bible is the Word of God. Then it disagrees with them, the Bible is the Book of Excuses.

(AgapePress) - The Barna Research Firm is defending a recent survey which found some disturbing statistics regarding born-again Christians and divorce. The survey found that born-again Christians were just as likely as non-believers to divorce. In fact, the survey found that the divorce rate is higher for Christians when compared with non-believers.

Once when I worked in a government office a co-worker demanded to know if I was `homophobic'. I replied "YES!" with a bared-teeth grin (he folded like an accordion). Now, just what is the meaning of this modern weapon-word? It seems to imply "fear of homos". Gee, but isn't that homophobic of itself?

The actual Greek roots are `fear', and `the same'. Logically, this means if I'm truly `homophobic' that I have an irrational disdain for other straight heterosexuals who voted for Bush. Interesting, yes?

The more I think of this the more nightmarish it starts to sound.

There still seems to be a lot of unanswered questions as to who would be eligble to get married? Should two brothers be able to get married? They are homosexual, they love each other. Is it not discrimination to deny them the right to gay marriage?

This moral equalitarianism is sick, to say the least. The rule of law has become a minority and analysis has become a crime.

They live for sex but have no sex to live. They bash heterosexuals freely calling us biggots, but we cannot criticize the behavior, let alone them.

This did not happen overnight.

The homosexual advocate are dominant in the legal profession.

They have even rewritten the model rules of divorce law called the "project" which in essence takes children OUT OF MARRIGE!

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1074970/posts?page=1

This is with the approval of law schools (who teach all our lawyers. Lawyers who have to unlearn the stupidity on their own.), interest groups like the ABA (a voluntary group that supports the blame america first crowd), and misc. other homosexual lawyers and advocacy groups.

``Much of America has lost its moorings,'' Sen. Robert Byrd, the West Virginia Democrat, noted back in 1996 when the U.S. Senate, by a vote of 85-14, reaffirmed marriage meant uniting one man and one woman. ``We've lost our way. What took thousands of years to build is being dismantled in a generation with a speed that is awesome.''

Scary.
