"This is something new," Anne Stanback, president of Love Makes a Family. "It’s not something that’s going to happen overnight, but it’s going to happen."

First off, this is NOT something new. These self-serving perverts have been trying to destroy the sanctity of marriage for years.

Second, regardless of what Stanback (while I hurl) says, "family" is not defined by love. It is a man and a woman getting married and having children.

PERIOD.

I fellow Texan BUMP, for grateful Lone Star bow for so clearly stating the truth. Well done, my friend. Damn well done.

be alert, homosexual marriage advocates are hard at work trying to eliminate children from the definition of marriage.

Family will be one thing marriage a completly different thing.

Just a warning.

Surprising! Everyone must be ever watchful because the gay/lesbian community won't stop.

First,several quotes from the article:Then there's this from The Overhauling of Straight America^:
The first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays and gay rights. To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preference the way they register different tastes for ice cream or sports games: she likes strawberry and I like vanilla; he follows baseball and I follow football. No big deal.

At least in the beginning, we are seeking public desensitization and nothing more. We do not need and cannot expect a full "appreciation" or "understanding" of homosexuality from the average American. You can forget about trying to persuade the masses that homosexuality is a good thing. But if only you can get them to think that it is just another thing, with a shrug of their shoulders, then your battle for legal and social rights is virtually won."

And guess what, they're winning.

The queers and faggots actively and willingly encourage a lifestyle that is twisted and perverted. They cleverly promote behavoir that is diametrically opposed to the Judeo-Christian principles upon which this nation was founded. Their promiscuous behavior spreads incurable diseases and causes agonizing death. Let's not lend credence to a bunch of perverts seeking to hijack this country's moral foundation.

Part of the blame lies on America's churches. A lot of the Mainline Denominations are run by Pro-Saddam Marxists who promote the homsexual agenda on Sunday mornings.

Just let them try.

Marriage is a union sanctioned by God, defined in the Bible.

And the vast majority of Americans are wary to let homosexuals cross that line.

Yep. They will not stop.

They intend to destroy every last bastion of common sense and decency we hold dear; marriage, family, our children. And all in the name of sexual "freedom."

Actually, they are not winning.

Despite the best efforts of the liberal, looney anti-American left, people do still carry a bit of common sense. They know there are boundaries that should never be crossed.

People realize and understand the Pandora's Box that would be opened by allowing homosexuals to marry and adopt, for example. Once you open that door, how do you keep others from coming in? And, lo and behold, the pedophiles are now standing at the doorway. People are seeing this, knowing this is all possible due to the efforts of the homosexuals who only want to destroy the moral fabric on which this country was founded.

Don't count out the people yet.

And how does a hysterectomy figure into the definition of a family?

Do you even know what the hell you are talking about?
