Or: Marriage and the New AbNormal
in Cuckoo – Land USSA
[If that to whom much is given, much is required, it certainly tarnishes the witness of the American evangelical church, along with portions of the presbyterian & reformed, if it can’t keep one creation ordinance (the 4th commandment) straight all the while the world is busy perverting another creation ordinance (the 7th commandment). For that reason something like Naptali Press’s reprint of the Puritan N. Bownd’s True Doctrine of the Sabbath (1606) is appropriate as the nation continues its descent into moral madness. Whether the evangelicals in love with the world will bother reading it, is another story.
That said, the excuses given to justify overturning a pre-political institution that not only precedes the state, but without which there can be no state borders on the preposterous, never mind insane whether one argues from nature, reason or history.]
The Current Cultural Love Affair with "Equality" or the Revolt Against Nature
Neither is our confidence encouraged in all this after we saw how the créme de la créme of the judiciary were able to construe via verbal legerdemain, the metamorphosis of a penalty for not buying medical insurance, into a mere tax on a commercial transaction – no doubt interstate – that one can be legally coerced into making. This in that Congress only has the constitutional power to levy taxes, not penalties. Who knows what will be dreamed up yet.
Separation of State From the Religious Idolatry of the State
Much more that since the worship of the State is now the prevailing ethos in the secular realm, the new demi-god of Civil Rights and the corresponding Mortal Sin of Discrimination has come to the front of the civil pantheon presided over by the Deity of the All Wise and All Knowing Benevolent Big Government. As a consequence, the holy homosexuals are the new sanctified minority and the latest anointed members of the elite class, if not the current privileged victims. (And those "homophobes" who would merely question this recent
But just as the passive aggressive advocates for gun control vehemently advocate the firing squad for those who disagree as exemplified when gun rights
The Monochromatic Diversité of Liberté, Égalité and Fraternité
In other words, this is not about equality in any sense of the word reasonably or historically considered, at least as regards American history. Rather it is all about redefining equality, i.e. "equality before the law" or "equal opportunity" - as in freedom of opportunity - to mean "equal results" or "equal outcome". In other words, this is all about egalitarianism with a vengeance or what amounts to the French Revolution's 'Liberty of Fraternity in the lowest common denominator of Equality'. In a word, it is a vicious and stupefying sexual egalitarianism with political overtones.
To be sure that is not all that there is to it. The triumph of (romantic?) affection and consent, if not the will, over nature also plays its part, but the lion's share at least for the faux judicial argument is the Orwellian doctrine of "Marriage Equality/Equal Protection". If marriage is a right or homosexuals find themselves at odd with the historical definition of marriage, then we will have to pass a law that redefines unicycles and tricycles as bicycles in order that nobody's feelings are hurt, discrimination does not occur and everyone is "equal" because they are "equally protected" by the law. Go figure.
Cliff Notes for the Thought Police
This leads to a number of consequences, that one may or may not find coherent or encouraging. Nevertheless as Robert Lewis Dabney said:
. . . . an erroneous theory is never harmless. Man is essentially a logical creature; while capable of much shortsightedness as to the ulterior outcome of his own opinions, and even capable of much intentional inconsistency if refusing to apply them squarely, he ever tends to work out the corollaries of his own theories. The erroneous theory may have stopped just now at inoffensive measures; it will not tarry there. If it is not refuted, it will be sure to advance to other measures, despotic and mischievous (The Practical Philosophy, 1897, p. 343).
The despotic and mischievous measures and effects not only include the further debasement of the language and public discourse, but also the increase in the coercive power of the state as dictated by the judicial branch to seek out those who disagree with sanctification of 1-3% of the population. Liberty and
I. Been There, Done That
And it is not to say we haven’t seen the same arguments before either. Remember the “milllions and millions of women will have to have illegal back alley abortions, unless we legalize abortion now” argument? In other words, so that abortion would become "Safe, Legal and Rare"? Now we are told – regarding 1-3+% of the population – ‘millions and millions of people will live and die unfulfilled lives unless everybody gets on board with Marriage Equality’. In the name of preposterous claims for a single digit minority, we are obligated to overturn tradition and history under the guise of equality and human rights whatever the consequences or confusion that might results. If not that confusion and chaos is expected, much more sought for.
II. Unequal Equality of Results
Again , this is all about Leviathan and Big Brother exercising raw judicial, legislative and police power for the sake of 1-3% of the population in the name of a perverted “equality” that owes more to the bloody French Revolution than American history or jurisprudence. While all men - all people - are equal before the law, that is not to say they are all equal in their desires, abilities or opportunities and results. Yet to try to make that socialist utopian goal happen on earth or in our lifetime necessarily leads to coercion and it has yet to be said better than Vonnegut in his short story Harrison Bergeron. Not to mention the Kafkaesque bureacracy and laws that result.
III. Civil Rights Category Confusion
But the reply that homosexuals are just born that way and one’s sexual identity is as fixed as one’s racial identity is more than a little specious, if not an attempt to piggyback on success of the civil rights movement. Besides the laws against interracial marriage still presumed we were talking different
But there still are certain, shall we say liberal/progressive taboos. While it is OK to go from being a heterosexual man to a (heterosexual?) woman surgically (if even that, our Wheaties Box Olympic champion weirdo now, still might be a faux transexual), it is not OK to go from being a white to a black woman no matter what or how you “feel” about it, the recent eastern Washington NAACP head notwithstanding.
So as the politically correct score now stands, temporarily anyhow, until a new diktat comes down: transracial is out, but transgender - and transsexuality a.k.a. homosexuality - is in. IOW that Rachel Dolezal is a white woman that feels like a black woman is a major fauxpas/verboten, while that Bruce Jenner
One might therefore reasonably(?) conclude that while the sexes, male and female, are fluid, race - and sexual desires - are not. That because the whole same sex marriage argument is built on homosexual desires being an unchangeable birth
Perhaps the real problem then is that Rachel didn't claim to be either a lesbian, if not a transsexual (lesbian transsexual?) before adding the racial thing to the mix. Then maybe both the professional homophiles and race mongers would have approved and argued for her inclusion in the cereal box hall of fame. Think of all the firsts she would have accomplished and the history that would have been made
IV. Let the Truth Be Told
Again the problem is that heterosexuals aren’t “free” to marry anybody they want to, which untruth supposedly justifies the rights of homosexuals to marry whomever they want to. In other words, you may not consistently, constitutionally or reasonably privilege “same sex” marriages over, above and before “same family” marriages, i.e. incest or “more than one person at the same time” marriages, i.e. polygamy. (Thus Robert Gagnon for one.) These come before and should pre-empt the special treatment homosexuality gets at the expense of heterosexual marriages that are forbidden/consigned to the closet. Real equality before the law means as it always has, that anyone may enter into a marriage with a member of the opposite sex, barring same family or more than one person at the same time unions, never mind same sex relationships.
But homosexuals don't care to enter into the time honored arrangement. So? What? What really is going on - thought they are loath to admit it - is that the lesbians and sodomites want to redefine marriage. But if heterosexuals may not do that when it comes to "same ____ " marriages , why are the homosexuals to be allowed ? Is it really discrimination to prevent them from modifying something that has been around longer than all parties to the
As an aside, in the 1850's this country sent Federal troops to the Utah Territory until the Mormon church got the apostolic word from above that polygamy was a no-no. Only then was Utah allowed to become a state. So there is precedent after a sort for rulings against polygamy, much more - it should go without saying - homosexual marriages.
Don’t ’Ask, Don’t Tell Because Everything Is Swell
Further, the special rights for homosexuals don’t begin or end with marriage. The military has always segregated according to sex because uhmm . . . let us take a wild guess and say the birds and the bees. In other words, nature/reality. Even without uni sex barracks and bathrooms, the Navy has a real problem with its female sailors getting pregnant at sea. In the real world, desire normally follows one's sex, but if we have to give homosexuals right to mix in with the general population, in all fairness to the heterosexuals, the only kind of order and distinction in barrack assignment should be alphabetical. Just pour ‘em all out of the jar and separate according to last names, not sex. Maybe those (heterosexuals) who are married, if their first names are close enough alphabetically, will get to room together. And maybe not.
V. Double Minded Duplicity On Discrimination
Likewise, whatever the new math or common core academics might opine, two mommies or two daddies ≠ a mother and a father. Likewise the right of a child to their real father or mother is trashed in the name of rights. That more than a few children who grew up in these lesbian/sodomite fantasy relationships have filed amicus briefs with the court against the legalization of the same is telling, though the usual suspects in the Professional Lying Lamestream Moron Media will not tell you.
Which silence tells us that the rights of children be damned. The rights of lesbians and sodomites trump all others. Which is nothing new. Selfishness is in large part what drives the liberal progressive agenda from the so called "Woman’s Right to Abortion" to "Marriage Equality". Rights only go one way in the libprog totalitarian scheme and it is the wrong way. Favoritism toward the current agenda and its approved victims, the holy homosexuals, is what biases Lady Justice in her application of “Equality”
Which is because some people are more important than others. Hmmm. Imagine that. Shades of Orwell’s prescient Animal Farm come to mind: That “Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others” trumps “All Animals Are Equal”, little grasshopper. (And this even before we get to equal rights for bestiality.)
But in all this, the power and growth of Big Brother is assumed and promoted in order to take up the slack when the fundamental institution of human society, the family - which is the first school, church, business and government - is diluted or destroyed. To be short, the campaign for so called Marriage Equality/Equal Protection is basically all about prosecuting and promoting fear in those who have the audacity to think that Statue of Liberty is not a transgendered drag queen and the traditional view of marriage and the family is not as queer or criminal as some would like to make it out to be. Which is to say, while lip service is paid to the patron saints of Sodom and Gomorrah, Narcissism and Unbridled Sexual Pleasure, in the long run power actually accrues to Leviathan, whose current spokespeople natch, tell us to "never let a crisis go to waste".
VI. Islam, Egalitarianism and Leviathan
Yet as far as that goes, in the ongoing war against Christianity, which while it acknowledges the authority of Caesar, opposes the idolatry of Caesar aka Leviathan, Muslims are also beloved by the liberalism of our day as a useful alternative and shouting point in regard to Christian, conservative or patriotic "Hypocrisy". The problem though, however much progressives are loath to admit it, is that Muslims are “homophobic”, to condescend to the contemporary label/smear of anybody who opposes, for whatever reasons, the current love affair with modern inhabitants of the Sodom and Gomorrah. And the subsequent benevolent big government agenda to promote S&G’s welfare and prosperity.
Which means things could get very interesting. On the one hand the jihad against Christianity's opposition to Lord Leviathan is to be encouraged and every opposition driven from the public square, but on the other hand, once that goal is accomplished, what then to do with the tools?
Once unleashed, how does one call the dogs of Dar al Harb back to heel, particularly since the vendetta against the followers of Jesus has long preceded liberalism and itself has pretensions to an all encompassing Dar al Islam whatever the progressive dhimmini and kuffar of liberalism might babble on about the UN and Leviathan's New Gay World Order. Nor is Islam’s view of its opponents any different from liberalism. It is a one way street. As in guns for us, but not for them. We think liberals will no like. How they will be able to say so without being guilty of discrimination, intolerance and hate speech, if not explain it away remains to be seen indeed, if not that they will be so busy trying to stay alive that they won't have time to justify themselves.
VII. Wards of the State
Further, the only way these perverse “marriages” can imitate, if not parody real i.e. heterosexual marriages when it comes to what the last as a rule produce: children, is by way of artificial insemination or adoption. Which is to say that for these unions, the exception to the archetype is the rule for the catamite copies. Which is to say hello and welcome to even more confusion in family court and law. Again, the family is the original building block of human society. It is the first church, school, business, tribe, nation, state. If it goes gunnybag in the family, the teacher/minister/employer/policeman/judge – take your pick – is going to be playing catch up cleaning up the mess.
But maybe that is the idea. Far be it from our Coercive Cognitive Elite leaders to again waste a crisis. Maybe just maybe, the civil government stands to gain for itself by destroying the other institutions in a society in order to aggrandize power to itself. And at least one of the ways totalitarian governments have come to power in the past is through agitation of social turmoil by those intent on a totalitarian solution to that chaos, whatever the useful fools and tools to that turmoil might think. After all, if rights come from God, but God is dead, all is possible and human rights are dispensable and only convenient, not cast in stone and the devil take the hindmost in the subsequent struggle for power.
(And wouldn't that be nice? All the yammering homosexualists and homophiles could unite and go elsewhere to piss in the wind and try to square the circle, in between reinventing a perpetual motion machine. They already got the perpetual angst thing down. Just think of it. But then they would lose their morally superior status as victims and the narrative would become a distinct bummer/downer. So it probably won't happen. Sorry to get your hopes up Tonto, but hey, we tried.)
Of course, it’s a wonder they don’t call him Eichmann, in that in a world that again denies God and the devil, the Nazis are the only thing that the liberal progressive relativists will finally fall back on that everybody can agree was truly evil. That perhaps, Nietzsche had to declare the “death” of God, before it became politically and culturally lawful to kill those made in his image, is of course one bridge too far for these “agnostics” concerning reality to put it nicely, to cross, but still as Doestevesky was supposed to have said, “Without God, anything is possible”. So we continue on our utopian goose chase for the Brave New World Order in which a perversion of the pre-political institution of marriage is judicially enshrined, no matter that without the family any reasonable and decent version of a state can not exist. Like it or not, the family does far more to govern, educate and provide for the health, education and welfare of children ultimately than the government ever will, much more without the family there will be no children or state in the future.
The Fascist Anti-Fascists
To be sure, the totalitarian equivalent of the janissaries, the children of Christians surrendered to the Turks in order to be brought up as soldiers to defend the Ottoman empire, is possible. If the secret police and army in the Soviet Union drew heavily from the packs of feral children spawned by the pogroms and purges which executed their parents in the prisons or labor camps where does the madness stop? Will those convicted of the “hatecrime” of opposing special and unconstitutional rights for the sodomites and lesbians have their children taken away from them by the state, who then will be farmed out to foster care in the barren households of homosexual unions?
Moral Cowardice, Compliance and Complicity
And if not, why not? Opposition to homosexual “marriages” if not hatespeech and hate think, is actionable by the civil magistrate. Vide the various lawsuits against the butcher, the baker and the candlestick makers that have demurred to go along with the pogrom and have been sued for their audacity to resist the New Moral Order in which the legal and lawful, has now become mandatory on the part of all citizens. And it must be noted, big media, big law and big business have all toed the line drawn by the pink Nazis and backed off, if not rather backed the putsch for “Marriage Equality. They are in bed with the pogrom for all practical (largely financial?) purposes (even if their hearts
Queer Beer, Draft Horses (and Draught Houses 2K10:17)
Then there's the St. Patrick's Day Parade. The usual suspects demanded special rights as usual and peed in their pajamas when they didn't get their way for the ninety ninth time. Somehow an apolitical parade is supposed to allow the adherents and afficionados of a political hot potato to march when they forbid all other political hooraw and agitating. But all was not lost on a particular Boston brewery, which did the noble thing and withdrew its backing from said same parade (but not from using ____script on its webpage). But maybe we could get the descendants of Sam Adams to host a little party and at least throw some shipments of Guinness, which also as a corporation said the correct thing about ME and equal rights, into the harbor. Small consolation that, but since we’ve already thrown away reason, nature and history on the question, why stop there?
True, Ireland the object of St. Patrick’s missionary labors so long ago, itself just voted in the affirmative on the question, but to a certain extent one notices that in these affairs, you can’t say no. We rather suspect that like the vote on the EU, if Ireland hadn’t voted for ME, the powers that be would keep holding elections until the Irish got it
The Bottom Line: Judicial Tyranny
And if only four states so far have voted to legalize “Marriage
The Real Conclusion: "Everything Not Forbidden is Compulsory" in the New Gay World Order*
One might just as well ask why aren’t all doctors - “prochoice” or no - forced to provide abortions; photographers to do porn shoots and mom and pop stores forced to sell the results. Otherwise somebody is getting their “equality/equal rights ” violated. It stands to just as much reason as forcing florists, bakers and caterers to do weddings for homosexuals and is essentially unconstitutional and totalitarian in principle.
Which is what we are seeing. People are getting hauled into court and their livelihoods ruined because they aren’t drinking the latest social engineering kool aid, much more
Rather the golden calf of the LGBQT#$% junta is long overdue to be barbequed to a charcoal crisp over a bonfire of its own vain contradictions and non sequiturs. Marriage Equality/Equal Protection is a bill of goods and is as fraudulent as the New Declaration of Independence, that is being foisted upon America in hopes of overturning nature, reason and history, if not shouting it down by the sheer volume of propaganda from the homosexual puppets and tools of Big Brother.
