Some creep named Eric Ross is pushing his gay marriage agenda on little *first grade* schoolchildren.
This is in tandem with a move by Mark Leno and his fellow Commiecrats in the California State Senate, who have just passed a bill mandating the teaching of homosexual, lesbian, bi-, and transgendered history. This at a time when our public schools rate below the historically lowest scoring State Of Mississippi in measured achievements. Gay studies--just the sort of strategy to raise those English composition and vocabulary scores among the linguistic and arithmetic illiterate, right?
Of course, the Big Lie propaganda is that anyone who doesn't think that such a relationship merits the *exact* same legal status as a marriage (whatever status it may merit, and I grant it could merit a domestic partnership status for legal purposes) is an evil bigoted hater who wants to put gays up against a wall and shoot them. Worse than that, Mr. Ross goes on to say that somehow it is all Ronald Reagan's fault:
I can’t wait for the day when our children get a complete picture of history instead of one-sided, fractioned pieces of information," said Ross. "Knowledge is power and hiding information from people only hurts us. Maybe HIV and AIDS wouldn’t be as devastating now if Reagan didn’t hide from the fact that it existed for so long. And if you didn’t know that the President failed to acknowledge the existence of the epidemic until over 20,000 Americans died, you would benefit from the passing of the FAIR Education Act.
Gee, I didn’t know Ronald Reagan went from bathhouse to bathhouse spreading AIDS, did you?
Who but an insane radical like Eric Ross would fail to admit that promiscuous anal sex, more often than not conducted with strangers, was and is inherently dangerous and a threat to public health?
To quote no less a lesbian luminary than Camille Paglia:
The fact is that everyone who preached "free love" in the 1960’s and 1970’s is responsible for AIDS...This idea that it was somehow an accident, a microbe that sort of fell from heaven--absurd. We must face what we did.
Eric Ross apparently still can’t face it. But this is the liberal Demunist Commiecrat mentality in a nutshell: that Eric Ross has the right to put anything in his mouth or up his anus without consequence, and then has the right to socialized medicine and to blame Ronald Reagan and the Republicans when the inevitable consequences occur.
And how exactly did Ronald Reagan "hide" from AIDS? Might he have had bigger problems to face, like a stagflation economy at home, and the Soviet nuclear blackmail and Communist subversion in Latin America and elsewhere abroad?
Eric Ross "hopes that having an LGBT inclusive curriculum will also help children see the important contributions from the LGBT community." But the only contributions I see from the likes of Eric Ross are dishonesty and an appalling lack of personal responsibility.
For the record, I have blogged on this before back in the Proposition 8 brouhaha in November 2008. And I will state it again: no, sorry, such a relationship, however wonderful and loving and committed it may be, is not the same as a marriage. That's the way it has been all the way back even to Ancient Greece, where homosexuality was common. Keep a permanent homo-sexual partner? Sure! And may they be happy. But "marry" them? Why? Marriage exists as a state of social obligation of procreating couples. It exists for no other reason. There are all sorts of different wonderful human relationships that are not covered by marriage. Nor should they be. They carry no social obligation, nor moral imperative; and should fall outside of government meddling and incentives.
Nor is this only a Judeo-Christian objection. Marriage is everywhere in every culture. It's a natural consequence of the human condition, namely mortality and procreation. And that remains true even when married couples are barren and childless. It's binary because of the binary sexes. It's necessary because of the way the next generation comes about. And it tends to be monogamous because having rootless single men, as is common in polygamous societies, causes instability and chaos. We don't have marriage just so that women or men can wear a dress or tuxedo one day in their life so that they can feel pretty.
Of course, the Commiecrat radicals will falsely claim that this is "bigotry". Anyone who believes marriage should be a special institution for promoting stronger families in procreating couples is a bigot by definition according to the leftists, because that marriage does not include relationship type monogamous homosexual.
And I say, well, if that one, then why not relationship type polygamous, with all the problems that leads to? (See "The Suicide Bachelors Of Polygamous Islam"). Or relationship type platonic friendship? Or relationship type swinger? Or consensual incest between a consenting adult brother and a sister? Or just two straight dudes or chicks who want to band together for business reasons and nothing else?
And they call me crazy and a bigot, because that is all the leftist dupes know about "reasoning".
But by their own leftist non-standard they themselves are bigoted against other relationships *they* don't think are marriage. And there are so many wonderful (and not so wonderful, come to think of it) endearing friendships and partnerships that humans can have. Why not recognize them all--equally? Every last one of them? Because the simple answer is that some relationships ARE more important than others. This is why slogans like "Equality for all" applied to sexual relationships are utterly bogus.
