We must engage the culture by entering the public forum armed with the truth. No longer can we fold our hands and vainly imagine that it will all work out in the end.
Gay activists have a very serious and clear objective, and are using Hollywood, the liberal media, and activist judges to propagate their agenda. Regrettably, they are succeeding in convincing the general public that homosexuality is a natural orientation. As a result, a great number of people have been convinced that people are simply born gay.
Now I realize that whenever dissent is raised against this lifestyle one stands the risk of being labeled a bigot, or homophobic. This of course is a great way to silence opposition in any argument.
I do not hate homosexuals, nor do they intimidate me. I believe they can find freedom through Jesus Christ, and I am thankful that many are.
Contrary to popular opinion, people are not born gay. Every legitimate study has proven that sexual orientation is a learned behavior. An individual struggling with his or her sexual orientation does not validate homosexuality.
Thousands of people struggle with numerous addictions such as alcohol, and gambling abuse. Should we tell these people that they were born with these addictions, and as such should embrace this lifestyle?
Gay marriage is not a civil rights issue. The defiance of the laws that discriminated against the black community during the 60s is entirely different than the gay rights issue. An individual’s race is a matter of birth, while sexual orientation is not.
If the courts legalize gay marriage, it will then be discriminatory to refuse to hire a person on the basis of sexual orientation. Churches and other organizations will be forced to hire gays or be charged with discrimination.
Gay education will be required curriculum in our public schools, from K through 12th grade, and history books will be rewritten to feature the contributions of gay men and women.
Allow the definition of marriage to be changed to include gays, and a precedent will be set. Every other fringe group in the country will line up to get their place in line.
Who would have ever imagined 100 years ago that we would even be seriously considering such a thing as gay marriage?
