Being a member of the Majority, but having the will of any minority FORCED on us is like being occupied by a small, heavily armed occupation force. The majority of the population is resentful of the occupation. And eventually the majority will revolt and find a way to squash the occupation.
Only the willing can be converted to a philosophy. The unwilling will find validity in disagreement and resist intimidation by the occupiers. Doctrine has to be convincing before acceptance is achieved. Nothing has convinced me that gay marriage has any benefits to society.
The ability to say no is the true definition of civil rights.
I think when we look at this -- we cannot underestimate the power of something very big, evil and outside ourselves -- and realize that we are suddenly dealing and battling with something very huge -
How else to explain that this position was just a short time ago SO unimaginable, not even heard of -- and now here we are running our polls, considering what to do.
Know your enemy means something MUCH bigger suddenly when planning how to deal with this.
Definitely begin on our knees!!
(For we deal not against flesh and blood...)
