In the wake of the passage of California’s Proposition 8, Gays and Lesbians are showing their true colors displaying great hate of heterosexuals and just about everything we do.
Saturday, November 14th marks a day of hateful demonstrations, and predictable violence as well. Already, we have seen an old lady with a Cross beaten, hateful slogans plastered all over Mormon Churches, police cars damaged, and queer advocates baiting people into physical altercations to make themselves look good. See an innocent elderly woman attacked and browbeaten by angry Gay marriage supporter.
Blacks know precisely why the queer marriage movement’s demands are fatally disingenous. "It's not a civil rights issue, because as African-Americans we can't change the color of our skin," said pastor Edward Smith, who supported the ban on gay marriage. That is why 70% of California blacks voted for proposition 8.
The language of queer marriage movement is as shifty as the Arabic sands. They claim homosexuality is purely genetic, but elsewhere preen young people to “choose” being a homosexual. They want to inculcate kindergarteners by taking them on school field trips to witness lesbian marriages. They say they want “gay marriage” but litigation for laws that let any two human beings marry regardless of sexual orientation.
The queer marriage movement is indeed a hate movement targeting everything heterosexual. We are known as “breeders.” Marilyn French, an advisor to Al Gore’s presidential campaign, believes that “All men are rapists and that's all they are." Former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan insisted, "I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He's just incapable of it." Gloria Steinem (who was sidelined by feminists for not being radical enough) believed that “The end of the institution of marriage is a necessary condition for the liberation of women.”
Why do feminists, who for forty years have erupted rivers of hate for marriage and husbands, now desperately want the entire institution of marriage for themselves? Why are they so hateful in their protesting to encourage the California Supreme Court to block Proposition 8?
In the January, 1988 issue of the N.O.W. Times, radical feminist leader Sheila Cronan had a featured inset that speaks volumes: “The simple fact is that every woman must be willing to be identified as a lesbian to be fully feminist.” At the 1988 N.O.W convention in Houston, Cronin declared; “Since marriage constitutes slavery for women, it is clear that the women's movement must concentrate on attacking this institution. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage’.
Why would N.O.W. want all women to pretend they are lesbians, and fully devote themselves for something only a few lesbians want?
“Heather has two mommies” explains it all. It is a feminist vision for feminists taking over the institution of marriage and the social institution of family (men cannot be parents outside marriage, unless they go to great lengths to adopt). Billions of federal social entitlements are already available to feminists to buy out the marriage market, beginning with $16-billion in TANF block grants to states every year. This is why 80% of same-sex marriages in Massachusetts involve women – whose sexual preference is unknown.
In 1970, noted feminist author Shulamith Firestone issued a firebrand call predicting the demise of heterosexual marriage and the subsequent rise of the feminist same-sex marriage movement we see today:
“The nuclear family is the school of values in a sexist, sexually repressed society ... The alternative to the nuclear family at the moment is the extended family or the tribe. The growth of tribe is part of the process of destroying particularized roles and fixed erotic identity. As people develop fluid androgynous identity, they will also develop the forms of community appropriate to it. We cannot really imagine what those forms will be.”
Now, I turn the tables on feminists, proving that what they want cannot be a Constitutional right:
“Heterosexual marriage is the only institution that fully erases all physical, economic, social, and culturally-imposed differences between women and men. It is the only institution that harnesses the entire human race to work hard together and raise children in prosocial manner. It is the only institution that naturally assures everyone equal rights of every description regardless of race, sex, or creed. Same-sex marriage is the polar antithesis of equality because it maximizes every tangible disparity that exists between women and men.”
Feminists have nearly fooled America into handing the institution of marriage over to them lock, stock, and barrel. The impact of this would be additionally as devastating to America as the feminist-inspired divorce and entitled-illegitimacy revolutions were.
We cannot afford to roll over when barraged with terroristic admonitions uttered by hateful people. We will stand our ground. We will not sit on out thumbs or back down. Let us talk about it directly and factually. Let feminists isolate themselves as the radicals they truly are. Let us show them the door, as they walk their own gangplank right into the Pacific ocean.
