For Gay Marriage – All The World Grows Stupid
GrassTopsUSA Exclusive Commentary
By Don Feder
It’s said that in the halcyon days before World War I, the aged Emperor Franz Josef attended an opening session of the parliament of Austria-Hungary, where – as reigning monarch
– he was expected to make formal remarks.
After listening to one long-winded speech after another, at last, it was the octogenarian Emperor’s turn. By now thoroughly disgusted, Franz Josef
wobbled to the podium, uttered a single phrase in Latin
– roughly translated as "All the world grows stupid" – and sat down to stunned silence.
With two Supreme Court cases
pending that could either reaffirm or remake an institution that forms the
bedrock of society, the debate over "same-sex marriage" has come down to
political celebrities brandishing clichés. All the world grows stupid.
The ironically named Respect for Marriage Coalition is spending $1 million on a
national advertising campaign to convince us that support for MINO (marriage in
name only) is bipartisan. Besides Dear Leader, the ads feature clips from speeches by Colin Powell, Laura Bush and Dick Cheney endorsing stupidity in the sacred name of equality.
It's a wonder anyone still thinks of Powell as a Republican. He only endorsed Obama twice, and recently warned of a "dark vein of intolerance in the GOP." Cheney is a model Wall Street Republican who thought McCain made a big mistake in choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate – no corporate connections, middle-class background, would never be allowed to tee off at our country club, if you know what I mean.
Laura Bush, who asked to be removed from the ads, told CNN, "When couples are committed to each other and love each other then they should have the same rights everyone else does." That this can be applied to other kinds of affection/attraction never occurred to this nice lady of limited imagination.
In her book, "Spoken From the Heart," Mrs. Bush disclosed that she urged her husband not to make gay marriage an issue in his reelection campaign. Had he heeded her advice, Laura would have been first lady for four years not eight.
In 2004, W won the Buckeye state (hence the election) by 118,000 votes. A defense-of-marriage amendment on the Ohio ballot passed by
a 1.2 million-vote margin the same year. Even
The New York Times admitted that the referendum brought out hordes of evangelical voters who carried that state for Bush.
While some Republicans are laboring diligently to expand the Democratic base with amnesty, others are working with equal fervor to shrink the GOP base by betraying the religious right on marriage.
Not for nothing are they called the Party of Gross Stupidity.
The ads also have President Obama cautioning us, "Our journey (to the promised land of gender-neutral bathrooms) is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like everyone else under the law." Fearless Leader has a remarkable talent for self-parody. (He will lead them from the bath houses and fern bars to the broad sunlit plains of spouse-#1 and spouse-#2 marriage licenses.)
"Gay marriage" itself is merely a milepost on the sexual-equality death march, which ends with the demise of Judeo-Christian morality.
Pending the outcome of a lawsuit, a federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order
against enforcement of a California law that bans therapy for minors who want to overcome same-sex attraction. Such is the power of the gay lobby: Homosexual urges among adolescents may only be affirmed and facilitated – never doubted. Teens who have unwanted same-sex attraction must never be offered help in overcoming same.
On the other end of the fruited plain, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education just issued public-school guidelines for dealing with "transgendered" students.
Based on the state’s 2011 Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Law (tack "hate crimes" onto the title of any legislation and the morons will applaud on cue), the pro-family group Mass Resistance explains: "Schools must allow ‘transgender’ children to play on sports teams and use locker rooms, changing rooms, and restrooms of the opposite sex. And, except with very young children, the schools will accept a child’s decision to ‘become’ the opposite sex, even without parents’ knowledge and consent."
How can we possibly deny a teenaged Him who decides he’s a teenaged Her use of girls’ bathrooms and showers? If a young lady objects, it will be considered a sign of trans-phobia punishable by therapy. Mass Resistance says the law "also prescribes a thorough integration of transgenderism" with "widespread diversity training, and a frightening directive for cleansing ‘gender’ distinctions throughout school life. This will affect all children K-12."
The Massachusetts state motto should be "Got Stupid?"
According to a February 20th report on a local Fox News station, Joe Darger and
one of his wives are lobbying the Utah legislature to decriminalize polygamy.
Besides Vicki (his legal wife), the author of "Love Times Three" is also "committed to" and "in love with" Valerie and Alina. "Right now, it is illegal for me to purport to be married" to the latter, Joe laments. "We’re not looking for legal recognition
(right now). We’re not looking for multiple marriage licenses (that will come later). We’re just saying let’s decriminalize a group of people who aren’t criminals," Darger pleads.
In the Sexual Wonderland America is traversing at breakneck speed, polygamy is the latest thing. Take a law professor, mix with
The New York Times opinion page, stir well, and – voila – you have stupidity to infinity, or "One Big, Happy Polygamous Family," by Jonathan Turley in the
Times of July 20, 2011.
Turley notes there are an estimated 50,000 polygamists in the United States who are members of Mormon or Christian cults – many more when you add Islam, America’s fastest-growing
A George Washington University law professor and lead counsel in a Utah case to nullify the state’s polygamy ban, Turley invokes the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in
Lawrence v. Texas to justify both homosexual (quote/unquote) marriage and the decriminalization of polygamy.
In overturning a Texas sodomy statute, Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of Lawrence, took the Constitution on a magical mystery tour, opining that, "At the heart of
(Fourteenth Amendment) liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life." (When the moon is in the Seventh House, and the Constitution collides with Mars, then
knee-jerk equality will guide the planets, and stupidity will steer the stars.)
Responding to a news story on Turley’s pro-polygamy activism, a writer to the Los Angeles Times confesses: "As a gay man, I support gay marriage; no shocker there, but when I thought of my rights and the arguments against them, I had to make sure I was not being a hypocrite."
Subjecting his reasoning to rigorous scrutiny, the writer continues: "Apply this to polygamy, incest and bestiality. What gives anyone the right to regulate the behavior of consenting adults, no matter how icky?" Bravo! When we homophobes bring up incest and bestiality in this context, you can hear the howls of outrage from Frisco Bay to Fire Island.
Why should those who consent necessarily be adults? Why not extend tolerance to minors and adults who "are committed to and love each other." Aren’t age of consent laws as unjust and arbitrary as limiting marriage to a man and a woman
– or to one man and one woman?
You’ll be pleased to know that there’s a move afoot, among some mental health professionals who should have their heads examined, to replace the term "pedophile," which stigmatizes men in trench coats with candy bars
who hang around schoolyards, with the less judgmental expression "minor-attracted."
On August 17, 2011, B4U-ACT, a group of psychiatrists and psychologists on the cutting edge of tolerance, held a Baltimore conference aimed at changing the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders to remove pedophilia as an illness. This was done with homosexuality, which was listed as a mental disorder in the DSM until the 1970s. The change was due to political pressure, not scientific findings.
The conference, which included professors from Harvard and Johns Hopkins (stupidity with Ph.D.s) explored ways in which popular perceptions of the poor, persecuted minor-attracted person can be changed to encourage acceptance.
The foregoing all flow logically from societal embrace of gay rights and marriage mutation. Once a sledgehammer is taken to the foundation, why should any norms stand?
Just as there’s always been same-sex attraction, there have always been blood
relatives who’ve violated the injunctions of Leviticus, men who wanted harems, adults with an unhealthy attraction to children, fetishists, sadomasochists and Michael Jackson. Erotic attraction can get as messy as the human psyche.
Civilization depends on taming self-destructive sexual urges, which do great damage to the social fabric. The continuation of the species, and the proper upbringing of the next generation, is based on men marrying women, who will remain true to each other and raise their children with loving discipline.
To sanctify any other arrangement
by calling it a marriage is stupid.
