Why is Homosexuality a Political Issue?

RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, yesterday on this program, I mentioned it but did not discuss it, and that is Michael Sam, University of Missouri, announcing that he's gay prior to entering the NFL. He wants to enter the NFL. He's a defensive end from Mizzou, number 52, entering the NFL draft. He's going into the draft as the first public professional-in-waiting player to come out.

Everything is political which deals with “public affairs” . Of course, the Natural Family and sexual practices are political since it affects public property rights, etc. The promotion of homosexuality strips morality from sex—strips Reason from sex—and strips Virtue from Laws if Laws promote it.

In other words—promoting homosexuality is promotion of Vice (unjust law) and removes Reason and Truth from the minds of children since it perverts and destroys Logic of Natural Law Theory—foundation of our Legal System and Reason.

It flips our ethical system of Christian Ethics which formed the Constitution and our “Justice” system which is based on Virtue.

This is where Libertarians are so dumb. They “think” social issues can be divorced from the “economic” system, when they are intertwined.

You can not divorce human behavior/ethics from an economy which is created by “social animals”.

Without Virtue, there is no Free Republic—or civil society. (Socrates). All the Founders knew that without Virtue, there is no freedom. That is why we have the promotion of a “Justice” System-—which is SUPPOSED to ONLY promote Just Laws—which is promoting ONLY VIrtue-—as understood by Christianity and our Rule of Law (Higher Laws).

I guess if you really stretch the meaning it can be considered
a civil rights issue, but basically they are say that we as a society cannot establish any norms at all. Its a free for at that point.

Lets take back the language from the homos! I am sick of the word "gay" meaning anything other than happy. There is no reason to be happy if you are a person with a human disorder. No reason at all.

Saw it also. Disgusting. The show probably is in deep trouble if they are using these “guests” to beef up viewing. I hope it fails. I have not seen it nor will I but looking at the commercials the leads look like retreads from their prior shows. Karla from Cheers acts the same, and Kramer from Seinfeld is the same character. He even falls over the same. Great character development.

America was founded on Judaeo-Christian morality and principles and they have always rejected homosexuality for the aberrant practice it is.

Further, homosexuals seek not tolerance but endorsement and use their new found positions of legitimacy to proselytize their vice.

Is that adequate?

Rush got on my last nerve today. Between this screed and the one about no one being able to stop 0bama now...

I shut him OFF! I kept thinking after the radio was turned off how WE’VE BEEN WONDERING WHEN RUSH WOULD CATCH UP WITH US?! Why Rush never says anything anymore, it is all just dolled up rhetoric for the main stream.

Just two years ago he was sitting there telling people NOT TO ACT...and today he was throwing in the towel.

Mr. Limbaugh, for all your “patriotic” rhetoric...you too have failed the American public.

saying somethig is a political issue is trying to compartmentalize/co-opt the issue away from being a religious/moral issue.

it’s trying to forcibly reframe the issue to a venue where the left would rather fight it.

don’t accept the premise. reject it. human sexuality has always been a religious and moral issue. always will be.

That’s how the libs win concessions - by making everything political and then stacking the deck. They have not changed many hearts and minds, only won political battles. Unless people wake up and realize that the eternal truths that stand behind traditional morality have not changed, yet they have been trumped politically, it will not be reversed. We are the majority - we need to overcome the politics and let truth and common sense reign.

Homosexuality is a political issue because what
ever CAN be used as a political issue WILL BE USED.

Just a little socialist think.
The end justifies the means.

...”had it up to my eyeballs hearing about stupid gay stuff”....

You got that right..me too..but really, all these issues are “sexual issues”...from abortion, homosexuality, woman’s rights, etc etc.

Once the 60’s Sexual Revolution erupted and spread...it continued til all those from that generation are now in leadership positions.

Basically we have the Flower ‘Children’ running things.

I listen rarely, but happened to listen today as I was driving and could find nothing else to listen to.

I thought I was the only one whose thoughts were exactly as yours! when he griped about talking heads in DC who do nothing to upset the equilibrium, I immediately thought of him. I do not begrudge him one iota nor penny of his success, but if you look where America was when he started, and where we are now, it is pretty much impossible to portray him as anything but a monumental failure if his task was to “keep talking until everyone agrees with me.”

When he started in when 1988 or something like that, we were a troubled nation but had hope after two terms of The Gipper. now we have gone over the cliff after two terms of Xlintoon, two terms of W, and now the unending reign of the grifter.

Gayness has gone from being “the love that dare speak it’s name...” To being “the love that won’t shut the hell up...”

Yeesh. Yes. We get it already.

What it is... Is a fetish. No more and no less.

THEY ( the progressive liberal left ) WANT it to be an ISSUE.

THEY intentionally make it an ISSUE.

It's part of their TACTIC to make you feel uncomfortable and "off balance" while THEY continue to PUSH their FULL AGENDA of full scale progressive liberal ideas.

Ideas like Solyndra, Obamacare, Food Stamp Explosion, etc, just depicts their efforts that THEY KNOW BEST what America needs.

I'll take a stab at it.

Liberals use homosexuality or any other put upon group they can find to undermine traditional values because it is essential to their survival as a Party to do so.

Traditional American values stress INDIVIDUAL excellence in all facets of a person's life whether it is school, work, religion, or what have you. People who adhere to traditional American values tend to be happy, healthy, self-reliant people.

These are the type of people that liberals despise because they have no need or desire for liberals and liberalism and, by extension, the Democrat party.

Democrats (liberals) must have a continuous supply of put upon victims to champion in order to maintain their political power. If their base suddenly started fending for themselves and taking responsibility for their own lives Democrats would be hard pressed to win election at any level.

Therefore, Democrats (liberals) must use homosexuality, race, inequality and every other victim group they can find to stay in power.

In short, no victims, no Democrats. It comes down to that.

It’s used as a wedge to prevent liberals from turning conservative. yeah, it pisses conservatives off. But it’s real value is blocking liberals from waking up, by raising the social cost too high, in the liberal world, to risk learning of the sanity of conservative positions.

If you think about it, pushing gay issues right now, when Obamacare is tanking, makes perfect sense. Obamacare is forcing liberals to wake up about economic realitites. That’s the root of become conservative. So gay issues are being screamed at them 24/7 to make them back off of the Obamacare economics, because - remember - liberalism is collectivism.

So the Leftists are presenting a package deal to liberals - wake up about economics through studying the catastrophe of Obamacare, and you hate gays. No, in the sane world that link makes no sense. But in the world in all-or-nothing liberal loyalty tests, it’s literally how the world goes round.
