Update : I posted this and then found out that the Supreme Court had ruled in favor of “gay marriage.” Please pray because I will not let this world be destroyed by such horrible acceptance of sin. I still cannot fathom how legislating sin can be beneficial because it isn’t. It’s damaging and destructive. We are killing ourselves so willingly and gladly. The Catholic Church will now be under greater attack.
Rights and priveleges are two different things. Yet the LGBTQ “rights” movement would have you believe they are the same exact thing.
Rights are, according to Merriam Webster dictionary “qualities (as adherence to duty or obedience to lawful authority) that together constitute the ideal of moral propriety or merit moral approval :something to which one has a just claim: the power or privilege to which one is justly entitled.”
Civil rights are “the nonpolitical rights of a citizen; especially :the rights of personal liberty guaranteed to United States citizens by the 13th and 14th amendments to the Constitution and by acts of Congress.”
Privileges are defined as “a right or benefit that is given to some people and not to others: a special opportunity to do something that makes you proud: the advantage that wealthy and powerful people have over other people in a society” (Merriam Webster dictionary).
So the “gay rights movement”, “gay marriage rights”, etc. are misnomers. They are designed to mislead and get people to accept a lie.
Gays, any letter of LGBTQ, have rights. They have the right to marry someone of the opposite sex. They have the right to vote. They have the right to be free from discrimination in employment, housing, and medical care due to state and federal legislation.
But what they want are privileges. They want special privileges that no one else has. They want to be the ruling class. They want to be the haters, the discrimantors, the judges, the juries, and executioners of what they consider acceptable and not acceptable. Many gays, lesbians, queers, and trans are more bigoted, more abusive, more phobic, and more dangerous than any alleged straight homophobe.
Homophobe is inaccurately defined as anyone who isn’t a full supporter of “gay rights” and their agenda. True homophobia is rare. But that doesn’t work for “gay rights” activists. They demand they everyone accept their views and opinions without exception and anyone who disagrees is labeled a bigot. They are just as bigoted as those they accuse of homophobia, actually more so.
The thing is, LGBTQ “rights” and their lifestyles are a complete dead end. A failure. No one wins. Everyone loses. There is no future in these things. Only destruction and great loss.
Now, not all gays are like this. But the vocal bullies are. Hell, they will behave the same way towards fellow gays who do not tow their party line. And theses same vocal bullies are out to destroy anyone and anything that gets in their way.
It’s particularly telling how many people who leave an abusive fundamentalist environment take to the gay lifestyle and it’s “rights” activism. They think they are leaving their abusive environment and beliefs behind but they aren’t. They are engaging in the same abusive behaviors they claim to hate and have left behind. In many cases, I have found them to be much more abusive than their alleged abusers.
As a Catholic who is faithful to the Church, I agree that discrimination against someone for their sexual orientation is wrong. But supporting traditional marriage between one man and one woman does not make me a bigot. I do not hate gays and never have. I find their actions and behaviors sinful, however, and dangerous to themselves and others.
Marriage is not based solely on love. It is based on holiness and the procreation of children. Love factors in but it is not the only factor to make a marriage. And two gay people or a trans person cannot truly give their whole self to their partner in sex. They engage in selfish sexual acts, not self-donation and the procreation of children. Homosexuality, bisexuality, and trans are selfish orientations. They are oriented to the self and its pleasure rather than seeking and supporting the elevation of their spouse.
Gay “parents” are far more likely to kick a straight child out of the house or abuse that child (I’ve seen it) than straight parents kick a gay child out (many of those stories are lies told to make the “victim” look better or come off as more of a “victim”; many times it is the child who leaves because they want to engage in destructive behaviors the parents find dangerous and are trying to protect their child by stopping them). But the media supports the lies because they sell and truth doesn’t.
So the truth is that gays want special privileges and not rights and will bully, harass, and terrorize until they get them. We live in a world of pain, death, and destruction that has become celebrated as life and liberty. We no longer see evil as bad but rather as good and see good as evil. We are killing are selves and doing so with a smile on our face because pleasure and sex are the ultimate end of life instead of small things that make up life.
