Forcing acceptance of same-sex unions is not a sign of equality, but rather an example of hypocrisy
About two months ago, I wrote an article about how gay marriage is unjustified from a moral and sociological perspective. Several people responded online, and one person questioned whether gay marriage would actually be a threat to heterosexual marriage.
Of course, the underlying premise behind the commenter’s questioning was that gay marriage wouldn’t affect heterosexual marriage in any way. There are many reasons that gay marriage will affect heterosexual marriage, but I want to focus on one in particular.
Many people advocating the gay agenda simply say that this is an issue of equality. You’ve undoubtedly seen many red equal signs on Facebook. While some of the individual followers (gay or straight) may actually believe that this is in fact an issue of equal rights, the larger intent really is about normalizing behavior and forcing everyone to accept it. And, the larger issue even beyond this issue is the insidious idea that the gay agenda has to completely erase marriage in general.
Masha Gessen is a well-known LGBT activist, writer and columnist who currently resides in Moscow, Russia. She gave a speech in 2012 that recently went “viral,” in which she says, “Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there … You know, because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie.
The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change, and again, I don’t think that it should exist … and really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality and I don’t think that this is compatible with the institution of marriage.”
You don’t believe this was actually said? Look it up. Don’t take my word for it.
Please wake up and stop being so naive into thinking that the gay agenda really is about equal “rights.” The entire agenda revolves around the rest of the world recognizing this particular lifestyle as morally acceptable — and further, essentially destroying the bedrock institution that God gave us at the beginning of human history.
A truly tolerant position allows for disagreement, yes, even vehement disagreement. However, the gay agenda is anything but tolerant. It is entirely contradictory and hypocritical to demand their voice be heard, and also demand silence from those who disagree with them. The fact that they are so strong in wanting no disagreeing voices to be heard is evidence that the agenda is about forcing you to accept their position. Forcing me to accept what you believe is intolerant.
A truly tolerant position does not desire an institution that has been enjoyed by heterosexuals since the beginning of human history to now be inclusive of them with the ultimate intent of actually destroying it.
A truly tolerant position does not intentionally lie and try to manipulate heterosexuals into believing their ability to marry is not affected when in fact, that was their entire agenda from the beginning.
Does this mean that I don’t love gay people? No. Of course God commands me to love all.
But, that doesn’t mean that I cannot vigorously identify and call out the hypocrisy or lying that I see from anyone who commits it, whether they be a gay activist, a conservative Tea Party guy, a liberal Democrat, a Christian, a Muslim or even a Buddhist.
