In 1996, then President Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). He and Hillary did not support homosexual marriage. Boy, have times changed. Once Obama came out in support of homosexual marriage and still was re-elected, follow-the-leader politicians have joined the gay parade to legalization.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign for President in 2016 began with her recent pro-homosexual marriage message. She will run in 2016, and there won’t be any Democrat opposition. The money will start pouring in from the homosexual community. Anybody who speaks out against homosexual marriage will be called a “bigot” and “homophobe.” There will be fears of losing youth voters, the fastest group now accepting homosexual marriage. And why not? They’re already sexually promiscuous. What’s one more sex act added to the list?
In her six-minute pro-homosexual marriage video, Hillary Clinton said some astounding things:
“I believe America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being.”
Not much to disagree with when given a proper context. It’s not people that opponents of homosexual marriage are against; it’s their sexual behavior. A person can “champion the freedom and dignity of every human being” without approving of their behavior.
Does Hillary champion the freedom and dignity of every polygamist? Maybe not now, but who knows 20 years from now? How about pedophilia? Maybe not now, but a time may come when our nation has lost any sense of moral depravity and finds that adult sex with children is as “natural” as homosexuality. There are groups that are working to make the case that adult-child sex is only prohibited because of old religious stereotypes. That’s the same type of argument that’s been used against anti-homosexual legislation, and guess what, we’re about to sanction homosexual marriage!
In 1996, the majority of the public and politicians defended marriage as being solely between a man and a woman. Polls now show that a majority are in support of homosexual marriage as a civil right. I doubt that the questions were asked in an informed way. Did the poll define what defines what homosexuals do that defines them as homosexuals? I doubt it. The word “gay” is a semantic cover for same-sex sex. Are we to believe that a majority of parents think same-sex sex is OK for their kids?
Hillary Clinton went on to say:
“L.G.B.T. Americans are our colleagues, our teachers, our soldiers, our friends, our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. That includes marriage.’’
So are racists, adulterers, thieves, bigots, anti-Christian zealots, cheaters, poor and ineffective teachers, corrupt politicians, people who aren’t our friends, and even people we hate. They’re all “full and equal citizens.”
You can see that Hillary Clinton’s position has “evolved” beyond homosexuality to include bisexuals and the transgendered. What makes us think she’ll stop with these groups?
Hillary implies that homosexuals are not “equal citizens.” In what way aren’t LGBTers “equal citizens”? She says they can’t marry. Yes they can. No one is stopping them from marrying. It’s just that they can’t marry people of the same sex.
How is this restriction a denial of citizenship?
Is Hillary saying that full citizenship requires that people be able to marry anybody they want?
Does this mean that a father can marry his 17-year-old daughter or son? Will laws prohibiting incestuous marriages be considered a violation of a person’s full and equal citizenship rights?
Maybe not now, but who can say what will be permitted in 10 or 20 years?
I’m sure that people who have jumped ship to embrace pro-homosexual marriage have not thought through the consequences of their decisions, especially young people who are almost always in an affirming mood. The day will come when they will have children, and there won’t be a thing they will be able to do to stop predators from taking advantage of their children because “it will be against the law to discriminate.”
