From Americans For Truth
This is from the homosexual magazine The Advocate (emphasis added) [written by novelist Armistead Maupin]:
“The battle has largely been won, I think. The mean and tiny minds who’ve made it their mission to ‘defend marriage’ have existed in every era and have always lost. They lost when black people were given the right to vote. They lost when women were finally enfranchised. They lost when the ban on interracial marriage was lifted. And in each of these instances they claimed with a righteous certainty to have God on their side, only to be roundly defeated by the abiding decency and good sense of the American people. Now we’re in the midst of another seismic culture shift, thanks to several generations of lesbians and gay men who’ve refused to live their lives in hiding. People know who we are now, and we’re just not that scary anymore. The old bigots are dying off, and the young ones are learning, at the very least, to deny their homophobia. Our happy ending is finally in sight.
–Armistead Maupin, “Calling a New Army of Lovers,” The Advocate magazine (the leading national magazine for homosexuals), July 1, 2008, p. 41. According to The Advocate, “Maupin is on tour for the paperback edition of his ninth novel, Michael Tolliver Lives, published by HarperCollins.”
What I find interesting about all of these articles is that they have nothing to do with sexuality, parenting, rights, etc. It is fundamentally about power. From the debate over abortion, sexual freedom, transgender and homosexuality, etc, it is about power for the sake of power. It doesn’t matter that people get STDs from promiscuous sex, or get pregnant, or “humped-n-dumped” physically and emotionally. It doesn’t matter that abortion kills the most sacred form of life and obviously must traumatize the mother and family. It doesn’t matter that homosexuality doesn’t have the ability to have children nor raise them in a balanced family; which doesn’t mean it is impossible, it is not ideal. What matters is the power of redefining everything to fit specific lifestyles.
This agenda has become so important that even our democratic system isn’t good enough and has been overrun in many cases from San Francisco, Mass. and today at 5 pst “same-sex marriages” will be granted in CA; even though several years ago (2000 I believe) the people voted against homosexual marriage. This clear disregard for democracy and common sense just goes to show how desperate these minorities are for validation and now because the STATE says so, it is so. Therefore, in their attempt to be accepted they have promoted statism. This same statism in forty years (my generation) can take it back and invalidate homosexual marriages. They would say it is not right and not fair, etc, but they should be careful who to sell themselves to.
The people pushing for homosexual marriage and abortion fail to see because they want acceptance so badly they are useful idiots to increase the power of the state and the people behind the scenes gaining the power are the ones who actually “win.” Christians are NOT the enemy because we seek to be responsible, accountable, moral and ethical people by placing God over us and not the State. Historically, for all of the murder people accuse God of, the State has murdered far more people and caused far more suffering. The 20th century saw the greatest amount of suffering due to statism. Nazi Germany, communist Russia and communist China murdered somewhere on the order of 80 million people from war, concentration camps, starvation, civil war, and disease. The great statist empires of history have also been bathed in blood from Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Therefore, I put my trust and hope in God.
People may celebrate now, but it will not last because if America continues on this path they will be some of the first to be rounded up and marked as degenerate and unwanted just as Nazi Germany did; granted not tomorrow or in my life time. The point being, be very careful because to trade freedom for anything is NOT a good trade. It definitely a sad state of affairs here in CA.
