I doubt most homosexuals are really that political. They are just being used as a mascot for the people who are in charge, or aspire to be in charge. They want to discredit and silence their opponents by any means possible, and homosexuality is just the most convenient weapon right now since it ties in with the sexual revolution.
wow...That is an excellent observation...Never thought of it that way—that they are “being used as a mascot for the people who are in charge.”
Socialism has always been hostile to Christianity and ultimately this is what is driving the issue. The socialist abhores the idea that government is subsidary to insrtitutions like Church and family. The socialists wish to reduce all individuals to the status of wards of the state, the state, of course, being THEM.
