What is Next for Same-Sex Marriage Advocates?
Right Side News ^ | 10/1/2011 | Victoria Cobb

Posted on 10/02/2011 8:56:54 AM PDT by IbJensen

Proponents of same-sex marriage are quick to claim that all they want is “marriage equality.” Nothing more. They’ll be content if they can just have “equality.” But we all know that reality doesn’t end there. In recent weeks, same-sex advocates have finally begun to admit it themselves.

Published just days ago in a The New York Times piece, Stanford law professor Ralph Banks, asks, “What now of the two remaining criminal prohibitions of intimate relationships: incest and polygamy? Even as same sex … relationships are accepted, Americans are now imprisoned for incest and polygamy … Over time, our moral assessments of these practices will shift … Should a state be permitted to imprison two cousins because they have sex or attempt to marry? Should a man and two wives be permitted to live together as a family when they assert that their religious convictions lead them to do so?” » If you like this article, please subscribe to our daily newsletter

Just the rantings of a left-wing professor? No, Professor Banks’ words have actually proven to be prophetic. Just days after the Governor of New York signed its same-sex marriage bill into law, a man in Utah along with his four wives were inspired to file a lawsuit challenging Utah’s polygamy ban stating “We only wish to live our private lives according to our beliefs.”

Just equality, right?

Homosexual rights advocate Dan Savage goes even further and continues the marriage muddling, arguing, “We aren’t wired for monogamy.” He tells the New York Times magazine that America needs a more “realistic” view of marriage and that it’s the LGBT community’s responsibility to bring “open relationships” to the definition of marriage – to create an environment that’s “more forgiving of the occasional affair.” Savage’s “It Gets Better” homosexuality campaign targets children and teenagers and is being promoted by homosexual groups as an “anti-bullying” project to be used by public schools.

John Corvine, professor at Wayne State University, is heading in the same direction as Professor Banks and Mr. Savage. Reflecting on the same-sex marriage debate in New York, Professor Corvine writes, “It’s worth remembering that polygamy is quite ‘traditional,’ even biblical. It is no more logically connected to one side of this debate than the other. The truth is that New York granted same-sex couples marriage rights not because of a radical idea, but because of an old-fashioned one: when two individuals commit to a lifetime of mutual love and care, it’s good to support them – or at least get out of their way.”

When you stray from the God-given confines of marriage, where do you draw the line? How is it fair to term one meandering relationship “recognized” without validating the other variations? Where does it end?

Same-sex advocates have no intention of declaring victory in New York and calling it quits. The goal is not to advance “equality,” the goal is to redefine marriage until existing sexual norms are no longer in existence. Counterfeit forms of marriage cheapen and undermine real marriage. The union of a man and a woman in a committed marriage is the foundation of a stable society. Traditional marriage and family are too important for society to experiment with to advance a political agenda.

Social science and history concur: men, women, and children are more likely to succeed emotionally, financially, and educationally within a two-parent, mother-father, married family. Marriage, properly defined, matters. Regardless of the agenda of left-wing advocates, The Family Foundation will continue to fight to protect the definitions and institutions of marriage and family in our Commonwealth.

Abolishing the age of consent has been on their list for a very long time.

After 1973, prolifers warned about euthanasia and suicide as a sacrament, and we were told we were crazy- it would NEVER go there. Where are we now? Same sex? Even as the APA is looking to end child molestation as an “illness”?

There is NO END to the perversion once you open that door.

The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophile and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States that works to abolish age of consent laws criminalizing adult sexual involvement with minors,[2][3] and for the release of all men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion.[2][4] Some reports state that the group no longer has regular national meetings, and that as of the late 1990s to avoid local police infiltration, the organization discouraged the formation of local chapters.[4][5] An undercover detective around 1995 discovered that there were 1,100 people on the rolls.[4] As of 2005 a newspaper report stated that NAMBLA was based in New York and San Francisco, and that it held an annual gathering in New York City and monthly meetings around the country.[4]

NAMBLA has been defended by poet and rights advocate Allen Ginsberg[6][7] and gay rights activist Harry Hay.[8]

"Homophobia" is not an unreasonable fear.

Sexual depravity is disordered and knows no limit or boundary. It will continue out of check until "heterosexuality" will be considered hate speech. Wait a minute...it already is. "Heterosexism" is now a charge, a condemnation.

Wrath is coming.

I believe that is exactly right.

How long before we start to hear about molestation of adopted children in homo and lesbian households?

The media won't be able to cover it up forever.

He forgot to mention the big one the prog pervs are after -- pedophilia. They want NO age prohibitions.

The most common type of same sex parenting is by two lesbians. Dr. Dean Byrd, a psychiatrist testified that the “research clearly demonstrated that lesbian mothers had a feminizing effect on their sons and a masculinizing effect on their daughters. Boys raised by lesbian mothers behaved in less traditionally masculine ways, and girls, particularly adolescent and young girls raised by lesbian mothers, appear to have been more sexually adventurous and less chaste.”

A picture is worth a thousand words. Look at Zack (left) a boy raised by two mommies.

Dr. Byrd continued, “Children learn about male and female differences through parental modeling. The parental, mother-father relationship provides children with a model of marriage—the most meaningful, enduring relationship that the vast majority of individuals will have during their lives.”

Girls need their father’s approval to affirm their femininity and to eventually establish a bond with a man. Boys also need their father’s example to grow into strong independent men capable of leading families. All of this, the Bolshevik Masonic globalists are out to sabotage.

Society is in the grip of a long-term satanic conspiracy masquerading as “progressive” which is attempting to concentrate all wealth in the hands of the central bankers and their allies. They are re-engineering the human race to serve them in a neo feudal world order.

This is the real “hate” and we won’t be fooled or coerced.

Homosexuality is an acquired ‘taste’.

The most worthless segment of America’s population and one that causes the most trouble. Statistics prove that homosexuals (Self-hating gaggle of hell-bound misfits) have committed the large majority of serial murders in the world.

They’re not satisfied until they rub everyone’s nose in their evil. There is absolutely no way they can properly fit into a normal society without serious and deadly results.

Put that into your collective socialist pipes government sycophants and smoke it!

I hear it happens a lot and gets no coverage. Did you see the articles about the 8 year old boy being raised by lesbians, he is on sex-change drugs!! That is child abuse to me.

What's next is getting rid of "public forms of discrimination," for example by constructing unisex bathrooms, with couches. I'm not kidding.

In the town of Soquel, near Santa Cruz, CA, there is a Home Depot. In it, there are two bathrooms, one for "Men" and the other for "Family." The message is certainly not subtle.

Advocates for same sex destroying marriage are wondering how they can further degrade the institution. It has never had anything to do with equality, and everything to do with making Mommy Government more appealing.

Speaking of NAMBLA, let’s not forget the praise Obama heaped on this guy:

“Kevin Jennings, President Obama’s Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug FreeSchools at the U.S. Department of Education, is in hot water this week for having failed to report that a 15-year-old sophomore student in his school had told him of having sex with an older man. —snip— statements by Jennings a decade or more ago when he praised Harry Hay of the North American Association for Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), which promotes the legalization of sexual abuse of young boys by older men”
