Skip to comments.Four Tiers of Failure: How the LGBT Lobby Dominates
Posted on 03/29/2013 3:35:29 PM PDT by Maelstorm
I never knew the extent of a lobby's power until fate called me to speak on behalf of children's rights. Now, six months after having come forward with a logical, secular argument against same-sex parenting based on experience, broad research, and international law, I have been met with vicious attacks and something far worse than viciousness: a massive nationwide cold shoulder. Both left and right are allied in a complete blackout of dissent from LGBT orthodoxy.
Doug Mainwaring is a gay father in Maryland; he and I jointly signed an amicus brief in support of Proposition 8. Over the last six weeks, fifteen news organizations have rejected our editorials and refused to interview us; many, like Salon and the New Republic, gave major coverage to the pro-gay marriage side at the same time that they rejected our correspondence. Some of these publications are conservative, though I will strive not to burn bridges by naming them here.
I am, moreover, the only person reared by a same-sex couple who signed an amicus brief in support of Proposition 8. Nonetheless, the Washington Post feels that it is newsworthy to report on two gay men holding a bake sale to raise money to pay a surrogate mother, while deeming the riposte from Mainwaring and me utterly insignificant.
Mainwaring and I support civil unions. We do not oppose homosexuality or object to gays living together. We support traditional marriage for the simple reason that a child's right to a father and mother is a fundamental consideration recognized by international law. Why has every paper from the New York Times to the Chicago Tribune pretended that our position simply doesn't exist?
There are four levels that have failed in the United States, and we must take these four tiers very seriously.

The gays have taken control of the media and entertainment, which frankly has a huge role in forming people’s opinions on the issues of the day.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
I’m also thinking their actual numbers have tipped over 5% in the US. That’s not only the point at which most people know reasonably way someone who is now openly gay, but it is also the magic percentage at which Muslims in a population, for example, start to influence policy.
More, more open, and crossing a demographic tipping point, IMO.
I just think enough of them have weaseled into positions of power in the media, that they can paint a picture of the world for the masses, that is not based on reality.

And...**Education**! Both university levels and K-12.
Gays are also moving into K-12 schooling, and remember! Gays hire Gays!
Exhibit A: Shepard Smith. Exhibit B: ABC News senior vice president Jeffrey Schneider. Exhibit C: Anderson Cooper. Exhibit D: Adam Nagourney.
It seems kind of silly, when you think about it: You've got homosexual activists clamoring for their "right" to be a part of an institution of marriage that has slowly lost favor among an increasing number of heterosexuals over the years.
correct. hollywierd made a concerted effort a few years ago to integrate homosexual characters into their shows. For this reason alone, I would have stopped watching shows. We have the local media (dc area) jamming homo reporters and homo newsreaders on the screen so much so it’s becoming pathetic. No way there are that many homos skipping around.
He turned to me, held up the photo, and said:
"Does this look like the cover of a homosexual coloring book, or what?"
I almost peed in my pants, I was laughing so hard at that one.
They’re doing very serious damage to society through the blacklisting of anyone who disagrees with them.
Art, literature, science, medicine you name it. If you disagree with the left on any subject they will give bad reviews or otherwise ostracize you regardless of the quality or validity of your work.
Ben Carson is one of the finest brain surgeons in the world and students at UofM are now calling for his speech there to be canceled because he doesn’t toe the hard left line.
These people are dragging us into the dark ages with their hate.
Also....Once gay marriage is enacted then it will be thoroughly integrated into **every** aspect of K-12 schooling. Bet on it! Within days of Massachusetts approving gay marriage the “ready-to-go” gay curriculum was on board in the government schools. And...Parents have no right to be informed or to object since it is now official law.
I don’t see it so much as a problem of saturation but one of acceptance.
Decades ago, homosexuals were shunned and ridiculed. They were castigated and forced into the dark corners of society. As the sexual revolution in the 60s progressed, homosexuals became emboldened.
Just like the Alinsky tactics dictate, they ridiculed their detractors. The detractors slinked away, because ridicule truly is a powerful weapon. Now they run the place and homophobia is bordering on a social death sentence.
We need to take the fight back to the gays, in my opinion. Ridicule them into the closet again. Their lifestyle is NOT acceptable nor is it promotional of anything other than Godless hedonism. Heterosexuality is about the propagation of the species. That’s why militant gays refer to us as “breeders” as if it were a pejorative.
The problem is that it doesn’t stop with marriage. You are correct the fight began to be lost with losses in other areas. Losses against pornography and having it defined as “freedom of speech” helped set the stage. The radical feminism and the free love movement of the 60s made the transformation we see possible where it would never have had a chance in hell before. While some of the influence has waned for “feminists” they essentially achieved their goals in that most families if they are working families have two parents working almost exclusively outside the home for proportionally the same income and lifestyle that one parent used to be able to achieve not only do both parents work outside the home but they also often pay for single mothers through taxes to stay at home while the govt pays for those mothers to send their children to free daycare. So homosexuality and ssm isn’t the beginning of the fall the fall started long ago as common ideas about the family structure and decency were eroded.
Those that are apathetic need to wake up and start making themselves heard because the next phase coming is going to be even worse and strangely it appears too many of our neighbors are just fine with enabling the thought police empowered through govt to root out “homophobic bigots”. I wish that I could just unplug and not care. I could probably live the rest of my life and avoid the worst of it for me and my family but that would be a surrender not fit for anyone calling themselves a patriot. These are “fights” and our opposition most certainly looks at them in that light and its about time apathetic conservatives do too.
Most of the folks I mentioned in my previous post would blow their brains out before they ever send their kids to a public school.
The Catholic Church in the United States became one of the most dominant "counter-cultural" forces in the world when it rightly decided that it wanted no part of the dominant Protestant culture of this country at the time.
The controversy surrounding topics like "same-sex marriage" are really just symptoms of a much bigger problem.
I believe the best approach in times like this is to be principled in your thought and virtuous in your conduct. And to always do these things with an air of serenity and a smile on your face ... even if circumstances require you to deal with someone through the sights of a loaded firearm.
Coming soon to the military, especially the JAG offices.
Your analysis is correct. And they truly do fear anyone that dares point to the non-normalcy of the lifestyle. Its there for all to see. Go to a “pride” parade and you see obscene vulgar displays that would never be appropriate on a public street under other circumstances. Also there is a tactic acceptance of underage homosexual sexual encounters all throughout homosexual “literature” its not just a small part but a dominant thread. Used to the leaders of the militate gay movement didn’t even try to deny it they wrote about such stuff in their treatises on gay rights proudly. I read through tons of the crap for research purposes and its not the anti-gay books that alarmed me as much as what I read from the prominent gay activists. They have at their heart a sexual amorality that is exceedingly dangerous.
Homosexuality is all about perversion. It speaks directly to the self-destructive nature of sin. When they give in to the temptation and continue to “explore” they get deeper into a culture and farther from an “easy way” out.
Most homosexuals I’ve known are self-hating and seldom truly happy, fulfilled people. They are drug addicts or alcoholics. They are addicted to pornography. Many of them claim they were “raised Catholic/Christian” and imply the “church” drove them to perversion. The church never gave up on them. They gave up on God.
Homosexuality is all about how two same-sex people copulate. This has nothing to do with love, happiness, equality, or rearing/raising of children. There’s no way to logically justify homosexuality.
Please do - these @$$holes need to be punished.
