The Real Gay Agenda
by Mary Shaw

http://www.opednews.com

John and Chris have been together for three decades. They've raised two healthy and well-adjusted children, who have themselves grown up, gotten married, and provided John and Chris with two beautiful grandchildren so far.

When they were in their twenties, Chris worked two jobs to put John through medical school. They've stayed together through good times and bad. Their love and their devotion to each other have remained strong even as most other residents of their suburban Philadelphia neighborhood have divorced, remarried, and in some cases divorced again.

Sound like the ideal marriage? Yes, it might, if only John and Chris could get married. But, you see, John and Chris are both men, and Pennsylvania does not recognize same-sex marriages.

Some might suggest that they move to nearby New Jersey, where marriage-like civil unions recently became legal. But it's not so easy to uproot a family. There are homes and careers involved. Besides, telling John and Chris to move to Jersey to find equality is like telling someone to move out of the country if they don't like the way their tax dollars are being spent. Moving to Jersey would mean giving up on Pennsylvania. Better to stay and fight for equality at home in the Keystone State.

And equality is really all they want. That's really all there is to the so-called "gay agenda". Simple equality. No special privileges, just the same privileges as everyone else.

Those who oppose same-sex marriage say that it would undermine the institution of marriage. But isn't heterosexual infidelity already doing that?

I fail to see how legalizing same-sex marriage would have any effect on heterosexual marriages. As James Carville once said, "I was against gay marriage until I found out I didn't have to have one." No, anyone who feels that his own heterosexual marriage would be threatened if gays could marry obviously has some very deep issues that can't be fixed through legislation.

This country was founded on the principle that all people - not just the heterosexual ones - are created equal. It's time to make that principle a reality. It's time for the homophobes of America to stop worrying about what consenting adults are doing in the privacy of their own homes. After all, time and time again we've seen that those who want to control what goes on in other people's bedrooms seem to have the most to hide in their own. (Can you say "Ted Haggard"?)

Our soldiers are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden is still on the loose, and 13 million children in this country suffer from hunger due to poverty. Don't we have more important things to worry about than what the gay couple down the street might be doing behind closed doors?

And aren't the principles of freedom and equality better for this country, and for humankind in general, than a policy of bigotry and hate?

Yes, I think you are correct.  It may not be in my lifetime, but it will happen.

Towards the end it might be interesting to see which Jeebus-infested states hold out the longest in their desperate struggle to Protect The Sanctity of Bigotry.

Aww, is that it? Equality? Sheesh, people, that's boring. I thought the Gay Agenda went something like this:

                                                          The Official Gay Agenda

7:30-Rise and shine! Shower, dress, eat, solve morning Sudoku puzzle while listening to NPR.

9:00-Go to "work," work being the secret underground chemical weapons plant under San Francisco. Continue helping to develop chemical agent that will turn everyone in the country gay and fabulous upon inhalation. Effects on straight people include sudden stereotypical urges to destroy the sanctity of marriage, listen to Elton John music and replace wardrobes with Armani and Gucci.

Noon- Lunch with Mom.

5:00-Leave work, go home to adorable Yorkshire terrier named Poopsie. Make fabulous gourmet dinner.

7:00-Finalize plans to release "The Gayifier" into a test city, say, Jackson Mississippi, while chortling gleefully and rubbing manicured hands together.

8:00-"Sex and the City." Never, ever miss an episode of "Sex and the City."

9:00-Think of more ways to piss off conservatives, destroy family values and degrade the moral fabric of this nation.

11:00-Bedtime! Fall asleep to the gentle sounds of macho homophobes screaming in panic as they inhale the Gayifier and are uncontrollably attracted to each other. Sweet dreams.

Now that's a Gay Agenda. :snork_lach:

Wow, I don't know how you got that information. That's verbatim right out of the Homo Agenda Manual.

That Myerson guy is obviously part of the International Homo Conspiracy.  He's not too bad looking either.

I like guys with two eyes and one nose.  Ooops, what a giveaway.  Sure wish I had a backspace key.

Mohler's deity, in short, is the God of Double Standards:


Maybe that explains why there are so many contradictions in His "holy" word?
