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.

There once was a young man from Racine,
Who invented a love-making machine,
Concave or convex,
It would fit either sex,
With attachments for those inbetween.
The next thing after the gay marriage issue is won, will be the “normalization” of pedophilia, bet on it. The APA just deemed it a “disorientation”, the same as homosexuality and transgenderism..
I wish I knew. The left have one thing correct. Exposing their heretics. Some not so “conservative” like to be traitorously silent. Why else do you not see Phds that don’t agree with the gay lobby on sexual orientation on Fox News? Instead if they put anyone on they put on straw men interviewees whose primary specialty is religion and while that is important they know very well that there is a difference. They make a big deal of Carrie Prejean a beauty queen but barely a peep about a college student ejected from a psychology/sociology program for being “Christian on Campus” or a Black Deaf Professor who was suspended simply for being supportive of letting people vote on SSM. There is a conspiracy of silence and there are a lot enemies in the midst. You see how easy it was to change the playing field on global warming yet they won’t touch the gay pseudo science. I have been impressed with Sean Hannity of late. Oreilly has proven to be exactly what I thought he was and Glenn Beck though I appreciate his effort has largely been awol on the issue. He seems more interested in gun shaped pop tarts (they are outrageous) than people losing their jobs due to gay thought police.
I certainly wouldn’t want one of these future surgeons operating on me.
They find out that I’m a conservative and they might be a little more “careless” than usual.
Coming soon to the military, especially the JAG offices.
Good point! Sadly, you a likely correct.
Welcome to the trailing edge of the Roman Empire.
All we need now is to elect Caligula to the White House.
This whole subject matter seems superfluous when put in context of what really is ailing this country
A friend and I drove through Cities that were very GM-Chrysler centric yesterday. Stopped at one strip mall complex, it was 1/2 empty.
Drove by many a street that were all industrial parks, as my friend and I noted if we went down these streets our guess 1/2 the businesses were closed, we didn't have to drive down them, we have seen it in other business centric complexes.
Yet the Gun store was smoking busy no pun intended as people ethereally prepare for something their gut tells them is a potential reality....
This whole issue is a colossal waste of time and misplaced energies..
In my opinion, it is not apathy but cowardice. Apathy just plays better. One gets spat upon less frequently on high ground.
And of course there’s a lot of ignorance out there that needs to be disguised, too.
Marriage is the fundamental societal order that provides the foundation for our economy, our nation, and our posterity. Homosexual behavior is completely disordered, and can only destroy that foundation and everything that is built upon it.
Case in point:
There are two reasons why this issue has ended up before the U.S. Supreme Court, and they relate to the two separate cases that have been appealed to this point: (1) the U.S. Internal Revenue Code includes distinctions for "married couples" among taxpayers, and (2) the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 is a Federal statute with legal ramifications for "married couples."
I'll let the first point stand on its own. The Internal Revenue Code is a massive pile of nonsense that even the IRS's own employees can't decipher correctly. At its heart, the first case is basically a tax dispute, brought by a lesbian plaintiff who is questioning why she (or, more accurately, her lesbian partner) had to pay a $300,000+ estate tax bill when her "partner" died, while her neighbors who are recognized as "married" under the tax code would not have been required to pay this tax. Forget about married couples and lesbians in this case. The real argument here is why anyone should be compelled to pay a $300,000 tax bill to the Federal government after he or she has deceased. The "right" side of this political argument was lost the moment we accepted the fact that the Federal estate tax -- which happens to be one of the platforms of the Marxism -- is a legitimate form of taxation. Anyone who stands up before the U.S. Supreme Court and renders arguments based on the status quo under Federal tax law has already capitulated on this point.
The second point relates to the legitimate role of the Federal government in marriage. Many of us predicted that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) of 1996 would be overturned the first time it came before the Supreme Court, since there is no basis under the U.S. Constitution for the Federal government to have any involvement in marital law. Anyone who argues the "traditional marriage" side of this issue on the basis of the DOMA is on the wrong side of Constitutional law.
The larger issue here is that a lot of principled people have no interest in this battle because it's completely alien to them. For a lot of these folks, a legal battle over the rights of people to engage in homosexual behavior and over the need for governments to provide legal recognition for these people may as well be an argument over the Constitutional rights of aliens from Mars, or of turds in the toilet. That's how bizarre -- even completed 'effed up -- homosexuals are to them. How much interest do you think you'd get from conservatives if the U.S. Supreme Court was considering a case involving a plaintiff who wanted Federal protection for his/her right to eat a railroad tie every weekend?
You have entirely valid points there, but they’re far too recondite for the average American, who is simply afraid to be branded a homophobe or a bigot.
Cowardice and greed are the major problems, IMO. Moral courage has atrophied for lack of exercise. Unfortunately, it is easier to discern these shortcomings in politicians than in ourselves, who put these wretches in office and provide them with salaries, pensions, and opportunities for mischief.
Queers: "We are the 3.4%."
This has been a long fight for the faggots. This is from 1987. Check it out. You'll see how far they have really come. Insidious.
If nothing else, at least the guy is consistent. The institution of marriage should mean no more to the IRS or to the Federal government than it does to him.
On the other hand, you can also add one more name to that long list of @ssholes in the "compassionate conservative" administration of George W. Bush.
I don’t believe all gays admit to such in surveys and I believe the numbers have been growing. In large cities the percentage tends to be higher; in flyover country, lower.
"According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization".It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism.Most of the activity of the department [KGB] was to compile huge amount / volume of information, on individuals who were instrumental in creating public opinion. Publisher, editors, journalists, uh actors, educationalists, professors of political science. Members of parliament, representatives of business circles.

1. It's HOMOSEXUAL not "gay".
2. Homosexuals are not fathers.
Uhuh. Gee Opie Bob Lopez, what big eyes you have! And Teeth! You're proof that even a fiscally "conservative" stopped clock that ooozed out of a rented womb has the correct time twice a day.
Your amicus "support" amounts to nothing more than a weak parasitic attempt to legitimize/normalize the homosexual abomination of nature.
Quack, Waddle - amicus Trojan Wolf.
>>This isn’t about marriage.
No - It’s about this:
Meet the New Übermensch , Same as the Old Übermensch
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.
...what in the world are you talking about? The Church, following the vacuous affair called the Second Vatican ecumenical Council, couldn’t rip its communion rails and altars out of the churches fast enough, couldn’t wait to vernacularize its liturgy, hopped on board turning its priests around to face the people and unveil an entire panoply of Protestant imitations, including desacralizing the language and devaluing the concept of priestly ordination, and the abominable communion in the hand...all this was done in the firm belief that ‘ecuminism’ was calling the Church to move swiftly to rejoin with its ‘separated brethren’...
...and along with all of that, remember the seminaries of the 1970’s, and its effluent gaycentrism, its lavendar mafia, if you will...and as for loss of Catholic identity? How many primary and secondary Catholic schools have closed since those same 1960’s? How many local churches have shuttered their doors, their faithful drifting away to mega churches and other such stuff?
...counter culture...we could only wish it were so...
