Traditional Marriage// the gay/ liberal agenda is trying to eliminate all tradition

I got this comment from my great blogger friend, Euripides, over at the  blog, Self Evident Truths.

Yay for support of marriage. It’s a shame we have to qualify it as “traditional” marriage instead of just marriage. The word marriage should obviously refer to a man and a woman.

When I was responding to comments from that post, I got to thinking about the whole “tradition” thing. I mean, we have only started to use that term recently, when marriage came under attack by the gay rights activists, and all those who mistakenly thought it was a good idea to jump on that bandwagon. So because of all of that ruckus, we now have to use “traditional” marriage, to distinguish between what some refer to as homosexual “marriage,” (I use that term very loosely) and then real marriage, between one man and one woman. So I just decided to look it up, to clarify for myself exactly what we have all been referring to. Not only are we calling it “traditional,” but marriage is a tradition in and of itself. What I found was really interesting.

I came across a paper by Dr. Mark Cooray on Tradition. Here’s what he has to say:

“No more tradition’s chains shall bind us.” This is one of the fundamental ideas of socialist/progressivist thinking. If men and women are freed from tradition, the experiences of history and the family environment, they can be manipulated and used by ideological and religious leaders, eccentrics and maniacs. If tradition declines, ideologues can mould and influence individuals.

That about sums it up right there. That’s what seems to be happening, although I’m taking religious leaders out of that quote. They are trying to remove all tradition, history and the family environment from society, so they can then manipulate us. Kind of explains the gay marriage situation huh? Their agendas definitely fall into the socialist/progressivist way of thinking.

Homosexuality: The debate over genetic attraction

I don’t happen to buy that homosexuality is genetic. But let’s just pretend for a second, for the sake of argument only, that homosexuality is as the gay activist’s agenda claims, it’s something that gays were born with. We all agree that gays are “different,” different from the majority of people. They are sexually attracted to people of their same sex, most are acting on these abnormal sexual desires, they are marching around, holding banners, having parades, and lobbying in Washington D.C. for their rights, all for this difference.

So because we all agree that gay people are different, then if that difference was “genetic” we could categorize that as a genetic anomaly. An anomaly is defined by Webster’s to mean:

a⋅nom⋅a⋅ly
/əˈnɒməli/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [uh-nom-uh-lee] Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun, plural -lies.
1. a deviation from the common rule, type, arrangement, or form.
2. an odd, peculiar, or strange condition, situation, quality, etc.
4. an incongruity or inconsistency.
5. Deviation or departure from the normal or common order, form, or rule.
6. One that is peculiar, irregular, abnormal, or difficult to classify

So here we  have homosexuality as a condition that is a deviation from the norm, something odd and irregular abnormal and peculiar. Are gays convinced that their condition is a random mutation on their DNA? It often seems like they would like to take no responsibility.  What else classifies as a genetic anomaly?

Here’s a list of just a few:

Blindness, deafness, conjoined twins, dwarfism, congenital heart defects, skin conditions, infertility, and the list goes on and on.  The University of Kansas Medical Center has complied a more comprehensive list here.

With the exception of multiple births (twins, triplets) and medical conditions for which there are no cure, what do we as a society, medical professionals, researchers, pharmaceutical companies, parents and teachers do with a genetic anomaly? WE TRY TO FIX IT!

No parents or doctor would leave their child with an untreated heart condition. They would try to fix it. Deaf children learn sign language or have implants in hopes of restoring hearing and so they can communicate like normal, some people with dwarfism even have their bones stretched to increase their height, and they receive medical treatment for the other health problems that come with their condition.

So, why are we as a society not treating homosexuality the same way? It’s like some people want a blind acceptance, no questions asked, when we would never do that with anything else. Why should we ignore this alleged genetic anomaly with out trying to fix the problem? Fixing irregularities is standard practice in this country, why should it be any different for homosexuality? If they have a flaw in their DNA, shouldn’t they receive medical attention to make them normal just like everyone else who has a random “condition?” Shouldn’t they want treatment so they can assimilate back into main stream society rather then perpetuating their “outcast” complex?

Just some things to think about. We wouldn’t let any other anomaly go untreated, or at least with out attempting to treat it. We make our best effort to bring these anomalies back to as close to normal as possible. Researchers are hard at work trying to locate the “gay gene.” I don’t think they will find one, but what is their purpose in looking?Are they planning to “fix” same-sex attraction and make these people not gay? Why are we not encouraging individuals who suffer with same-sex attraction to seek treatment. There are programs available and they even work.

My Mom had a child in her 1st grade class last year who had been diagnosed with Autism. His parents insisted that he be in a regular class rather then going to special ed. He came to my Mom’s class everyday with a private tutor, who had to repeat everything my Mom said to him, because the child couldn’t focus enough to keep up with the lessons. He was a distraction to the other students (perks of public school and our tax dollars at work huh?) he wasn’t learning much and needed the specialized learning environment of a class suited for his needs. My Mom tried to convince the school administrators and the parents that her class was not the place for him, and finally after several months, they transferred him out. What was everyone trying to do in this situation? Make this child as “normal” as possible; assimilate him into mainstream education, fix his “problem” and socialize him. Which was the main reason his Mother had him in regular class anyway, so he could socialize with the other students. I say fine, go ahead, there’s nothing wrong with trying to correct an abnormal condition.

I think that the situation with homosexuality has gotten way out of control. Why should we have to accept all of their perverted deviations from common order and rule? They are trying to force their practices into a society that doesn’t want them. How crazy would it be if all parents and teachers of blind children were trying to educate all other children on how great it would be to be blind, behind their parents backs of course. (I don’t’ mean to offend anyone, I’m just using this example to show how silly the gay agenda is). Should we allow our children to associate with people like this and be indoctrinated with such destructive ideology? One could put any genetic anomaly into this scenario and even some conditions that aren’t genetic (teen pregnancy, drug use, anorexia) and the outcome would be the same. They are deviations from the norm and some are even dangerous, unhealthy and deserve the attention of medical researchers to can help to make individuals’ lives better.

Secular Heretic’s post on the subject of homosexuality and genetics points to some interesting evidence to support the non-existence of a gay gene. (Thanks for a great post Secular!)

Abbott points to studies that look at the sexual orientation of the offspring of gay people. “If homosexuality was caused by genetic mechanisms, their children would be more likely to choose same-sex interaction,” he says. “But they aren’t more likely, so therefore it can’t be genetic.”

I find this particularly interesting. It definitely supports the cultural and environmental theory as the causes for homosexuality. I presented additional evidence of the relation between homosexual parents and children being homosexual, in my post on homosexual parenting.

{ The Sharks Are Circling…and they’re hungry!!!! }

The harassment, intimidation, tantrum-throwing, nastiness, name-calling, and all around horrible behavior from same-sex marriage proponents and gay rights activists, continues. Stay out of the water ladies and gentlemen. Keep away from the sharks!!!! Protect yourself, your marriages and your families. Get informed, do your research and be prepared to fight for morality and for our society! Thanks for your YES vote on prop 8, but the opposition is still circling and we need to say involved. We can’t let them intimidate us, or indoctrinate us, even though they are trying very hard to do so.

Here is a link to the blog “I Support Marriage.com”, which chronicles the Aggressive & Intolerant Gay Campaign Over Prop 8 Loss, in this post

It’s really sad that the gay rights activists don’t practice the free-speech, tolerance, acceptance and civil rights for all, that they purport to preach. My husband and I just got back from a Sonoma, CA Inn and Spa getaway weekend. It was so relaxing and nice to enjoy the peace and quiet of the spa, get a massage, and see the gorgeous countryside of Sonoma. It seems like the gay rights activists just need a chill-out weekend. They need to relax, get a massage and take a step back from all of the hatred. It seems like the bandwagon-ers just feed off of each other. On Dr. 90210 last night, one of the doctors was telling his patient that anxiety is contagious. The Mother and daughter were getting treatments at the same time and were making each other nervous. It seems like the hatred and bitterness from same-sex marriage proponents kind of works the same way. There are more and more people jumping on the band wagon, wanting a piece of the action and feeding off of the frenzied hatred disguised as “civil rights” mantra of the opposition. I think they need to reflect a little more on the effect their actions and promotion of the gay lifestyle has/will have on society. I am of the opinion that most of them simply don’t care how their actions affect society. A lot could be solved with a little more perspective on their part and a massage or two.

If you want to still participate in the fight to protect traditional marriage, or if you want to get involved for the first time, here are some tips for doing so. These were written before the election, but some of the great ideas are still great to do now. We have to make sure that positive information is still out there when people go searching for it. People get a great deal of their news and info from the internet; we have to help make it available. Three times last week, after I posted info here on my blog, a day or even two later it showed up on Fox News, Bill O’Reilly or some other show. The internet is faster then even the news media, so we need to keep working!!!!
