Someone has to say something about this faux argument. It’s a personal view, not a position OoL necessarily takes one way or the other.
There was a comment I responded to in a thread on gay “marriage”, as crowbarred through by Cameron and masters:
There are many different kinds of family, James and perhaps mothers recognise this.
To which I responded:
Many different kinds, all heterosexual by biological definition. Otherwise the word is not family but partnership. A quite vital difference and one which millions of French demonstrated over in the streets, multiple times in Paris and elsewhere. No amount of sophistry will paper over that.
As always, the PTB have ulterior motives and an agenda. Just how many times has it happened, politically?
1. Unpleasant pill to swallow;
2. Demoralize a society to prepare it to receive the pill;
3. Block and bring into disrepute any sections of society which would oppose it, to the point that ordinary people are so taken with the Narrative that they ridicule opposition;
4. Introduce the pill amid a fanfare of love for our fellow man, universal tolerance, marriage etc., all make love to anyone as we wilt – humans, dogs, cats, pigs, all in together;
5. Open the media to a flood of such material to inure the people to accept it;
6. Control education to the point that only acceptance of this is grown-up and acceptable, all else is dark age hatred and cruelty to poor minorities;
7. Never allow the counter-argument ever to be put.
On how many political issues has that taken place – leaving aside the gay “marriage” issue for now?
And what is the counter-argument? Leave religion out of it, leave out attacks on gay people. If two gays form a partnership, what’s that to us?
If the gay mafia pushes for it to be a “marriage”, that’s an entirely different thing, not an extension in the least and this is behind the whole IVF nightmare:
There is another point, brought up by Ivan who comments here occasionally – he mentions an SF novel he read where a space traveller returns and the whole earth is gay. Population control. The breeding done under controlled circumstances. Eugenics in other words.
You think social engineering on a broad scale doesn’t happen? Ask Labour and their multicultural social re-engineering in this country which they’ve freely admitted.
This is a far cry from “oh we have to all be loving and gays should have the same rights as anyone else”.
This is sophistry at its worst. No one I know is arguing that gays can’t do what they wish with each other – that’s libertarianism.
But that has nothing to do with marriage and children. A commenter at my place whom I’d say is the sort of guy fellow-bloggers see commenting at our blogs – not religious, p***ed off at Westminster, you know the sort of thing – this is his comment:
I have to admit that I don’t give a damn what anyone’s choice of partner is. My objection is to the misuse of the word “marriage”. It has meant, for many years, a union between a man and a woman; therefore a union of two of the same sex cannot be a marriage. Let the proponents find a new word which can run parallel with marriage but be unmistakeable in its meaning. Mind you, “gay” was hijacked and misused so I imagine they’ll get away with this one, too.
The power of the word. The things done under its banner. “Marriage” means sexual offspring, otherwise it is barren. To try to make out we are “homophobic”, when in fact these people are “familyphobic” is yet more sophistry. It has zero to do with love and fairness. That’s not in the least the issue at stake.
Gays have the same rights as any citizens – they already have them as citizens. This crap about “denying their rights” is so much bullsh. No one is denying the normal rights of any citizen to live, work and form partnerships, except the very PTB who are trying to push this gay “marriage” through.
And as pointed out above and in the clip, there is very much an agenda behind it and it is global in scope.
It’s a beat-up, people, and the PTB know it full well.
