As the move to redefine marriage in the United States gains steam through the agency of unelected activist courts, it should be clear that the true intent of this radical movement is to wage war against religion and, of course, against the First Amendment.
It is vital to remember that the Left uses stealth and lies to achieve its ends.
Those who advocate the murder of infants in the womb camouflage their support of industrial-scale murder with the label “women’s health.” But since half the infants aborted are female, the very notion of terminating pregnancies for the sake of women’s health becomes a study in Orwellian language and logic.
The same goes for the redefinition of marriage.
1. If two people love one another, they should have the right to marry.
2. How does the marriage of two gay people hurt you?
Answer to argument #1: If three (or four, or five — you pick the number) people love each other, they should have the right to marry, right? After all, polygamy is well-established in human history and continues to thrive in scores of Arab Muslim lands. What about siblings who wish to marry because they love one another? The argument for love as the final arbiter of marriage is a slippery slope toward utter chaos.
Answer to argument #2: Gay marriage does not hurt me personally. But the redefinition of marriage by the federal government leads to a variety of consequences that will damage and remake society in ways that are unimaginable.
For example, the American Muslim community’s near-total silence about the redefinition of marriage is a strategic silence. Muslims understand all too well that once gay marriage becomes the law of the land, the door to polygamy will be open. There is no way liberal courts are going to, ahem, “discriminate” against Muslims. Once Muslim polygamy spreads, the next step is the imposition of sharia. It’s already happening in Western Europe.
But as we said in our opening, the long game of the movement to redefine marriage is much bigger than normalizing gay marriage. Its true intent is to normalize sexual deviance, destroy the nuclear family, and promote LGBT as the new normal. To accomplish this, the movement works to demonize normative religion.
Christian bakers from Colorado refuse to bake cakes for a gay wedding. Christian photographers refuse to lens a gay wedding.
All are threatened with jail time and financial ruin.
It is telling that gay activists have not attempted this tactic with a pious Muslim baker, photographer, or imam. Because as we all know the earth is densely landscaped with gay friendly mosques.
As for Jews… well, scores of progressive rabbis are just itching to perform same-sex weddings. They believe in the Democrat party, not in the Torah.
The test will come — and it will happen — when a gay couple approaches an Orthodox rabbi and asks him to perform their wedding ceremony. When he declines, he will be sued for discrimination, and accused of being the postmodern Bull Connor.
The progressive radicals who agitate for the redefinition of marriage are playing the long game in a long war. They will sneak queer studies into elementary schools, do away with separate bathrooms for boys and girls, normalize the notion of gender neutrality, and demonize normative religious traditions. All but Muslim ones, that is… because not even progressives relish the prospect of having their heads sawn off in the name of political correctness.
