...I'm coming to believe that there are a bunch of nutjobs who love living in analogy-land. And in that topsy-turvy universe they can start talking about MLK and unfair discrimination and try to make parallels between this aspect of gay liberation and the Civil Rights Movement. Fair warning, such crap will not be tolerated at Cobb.
'Bout time I read someone sane on this issue. The civil rights analogy is obscene.
Then he concludes with this gem:
Fight the discrimination where it arises. Stop mucking with definitions.
As I said in the comments section below, my disagreement on this issue (and many other issues) concerns the perversion of reason. The perversion of sexuality is a separate issue — that involves plain-old carnal sin. Which is hot-blooded, sins of the body, easy to forgive but difficult to correct. But now this sin of the body has turned into a sin of the mind.
In every area where the issue of homosexuality arises to attack existing institutions — whether Vicki Gene Robinson in Vermont, or with Andrew Sullivan's dishonorable calumnies of half the American population, or the nonsensical analogies, or the Anglican bishop questioned by police in Britain for merely teaching the church's position on homosexuality, or the teacher in British Columbia who was sanctioned for writing letters to the editor discussing the church's position on homosexuality — it's reason being perverted that constitutes the greater sin. And that's what I'm trying to fight against.
Not just this issue
Don't get me wrong: The pro-choice argument is the single greatest perversion of reason in American culture today, especially when language is violated by calling the taking of unborn life, "Reproductive Rights." I have no use for people who use that term. Call it abortion. Say it's regrettable but necessary, and that more needs to be done to prevent needless abortions. That's a reasonable argument. Don't say it's a right and don't say it's about reproduction. The second largest is the meretricious concept of "Free Speech Zones" on college campuses. Call it a small exception to the campus-wide ban on free speech. This gay "marriage" will just be another degradation of language and reason, especially when it mocks the Civil Rights movement.
People with a degraded language (which happens) will make it ten times as difficult to help their children think clearly.
Reproductive rights means abortion.
Free speech zone means anti-speech codes
Gay marriage is like the end of segregation.
Slavery is freedom.
Good is bad.
