Why The Gays Are Winning ^ | May 20, 2014 | Fr. Dwight Longenecker

Posted on 05/21/2014 3:34:37 PM PDT by NKP_Vet

Those who believe in traditional marriage had better get used to it. We’ve lost this battle in the culture wars. The homosexualists have succeeded in framing their situation as a struggle. Increasingly their gay pride will be seen as a struggle for equal rights and those who oppose their proclivities will be branded as racists and once that is accomplished the use of force against those who stand for marriage will begin.

If you want to know why the gays are winning read Robert R. Reilly’s excellent new book Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything. Brad Miner has an excellent review of the book here. I can’t add much to Brad’s review. He’s written what I would have written. The best thing about the book is that Reilly explains what’s happening within the gay agenda with an objective, critical stance. He simply reports what’s going on. Just the facts ma’am. The most brilliant thing is that he does so without reference to the Catholic faith, the Bible or any other religious connection. This makes his argument all the stronger for he allows the facts to speak for themselves and never has to pose or get preachy.

When homosexual brownshirts in Germany began smashing Jewish storefronts, many Jews took the opportunity to leave to countries where the queers were not in power. If this is to happen again, but with Christians, the ones staying behind to be exterminated in FEMA camps will be the unfortunate and foolish.

As much as it pains me to say, look out for your life and your children beyond all else. The world is by no means void of countries that have kicked out the homo agenda.

Exactly. The logical consequence of homosexuality is the end of humanity in one generation. If it is “good” for homosexuals, it is “good” for everyone... Ergo, good bye humanity.

The term “traditional” regarding marriage invites the opposite term, “non-traditional” - rather innocuous.

For this reason I prefer to say “normal marriage”, a term whose opposite describes the truth homosexual advocates wish to avoid.

They aren’t winning much. Their lives will still be the same and people will still feel the same about them.

I actually think it is the incredible job they have done with regards to Hollywood. They always make the gay the “goofy” fun guy who is the best friend. They did a great job spreading the evil. I don’t know if it is too late. The last state standing will lose federal funding, but hopefully they will accept that and go on doing the right thing. States should stop accepting federal funds anyway. They would be better off.

The use of force will begin because wimps like this author just roll over and accept that the battle is lost.

They used to be called ‘queer’ and they still are queer. The problem is the growing trend, if there is one, of people turning queer, thanks to our queer educational system. Oh well, that should help control the population problem, that and abortionism, or killing infants. So, why should we worry about climate change as well since queers can’t reproduce, thank God.

Probably started in the 60s with Paul Lynde.

The wages of Sin are Death
Those who give themselves over to Sin are NOT winning
Their Death is written into the granite of the Universe.

One correct response, is Pity

Romans 1:

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

True. It has been a slow progression, but the last 10 years have been overwhelming. I can’t believe it. I think all the good guys are in shock. I know I am. I am in awe at the “in your face” of it all.

I think we should get government out of marriage altogether. It would certainly cause major upheaval in our social security system.

Anita Bryant was the turning point...Once they destroyed her, they smelled the blood in the water.

They want to be called gay so that the brain doesn’t process that they engage in actual sexual behavior. When we use the word “homosexual” the brain gets the message. That’s why they try to change the language regarding their sexual deviancy. They want you to think they only hold hands or kiss (not French). They want others to think that they are innocent non-sinners.

I assume that’s a big reason the gay mafia wants in on marriage. To cash in on pensions, benefits, and soc sec.

Evil is winning because America has become morally bankrupt, ceding the whole battlefield.

I thought there would be some leaders who would stand up and shout “End this insane depravity.” But there’s just no backbone, no vinegar, no moxie, in this country anymore. The populace is as cowed and as apathetic as the peasants behind the Iron Curtain ever were. And frankly, even more brainwashed, to the point of interpreting their degeneracy as a moral virtue.

I see this whole fag-marriage wave as a smaller symbol representing America’s death as a nation. Death in both the sense of governmental tyranny, and the sense of embracing evil. It’s the final nail telling me that America is no more. And it renders all issues like politics and elections totally moot, because they just no longer matter.

They are winning because the large majority of Americans have turned their backs on God.

Are you sure?

Too many Americans have turned their backs on God -- but worse, our government has officially turned its back on God. What is government? According to George Washington, it is a force. That's all. A "dangerous servant and a fearful master," he warned.

Now our government punishes crosses, bibles, prayer.

Mr Rogers, many, many more Americans are WITH God, attuned to Him, at least in some way, than not. America is yet a Godly nation, at its core and spirit a Christian nation, in values and a shared "municipal code," of sorts, if not in registered official religious affiliation. The West is Christian; that is why it is slave-free, because Christian decency demands it, as I believe it demands outlawing abortion, but I will settle for the overturn of Roe v Wade, returning it to the states. Before RvW, nearly two thirds of the states outlawed it.

Government is amoral. It takes over charity, a moral act, and distributes it as an entitlement, nourishing sloth, envy, and promiscuity. It takes over education and teaches an amoral history and set of values. God help us when it takes over medicine.

You are right that we must embrace God. So do it, Rogers. Lambasting others for not doing it the way you want to see them do it, is futile. God is love -- love your fellow Americans and for heaven's sake, have FAITH in them.

Liberals have to cheat for a reason, you know?

This is what we get when we FAIL to OBEY God.
For it is written: Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!

Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Someone once asked The answer is in the definition of "REPROBATE". And the reason"why" is given in the Bible.

God has a cure for homosexuals.

"Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect
that God is just,
that his justice cannot sleep forever."
