Marriage is Just the First Step in a Broader Campaign to Remake Society
Many in the homosexual community sneer when anyone mentions a "gay agenda". They claim that there is no such thing. There clearly is a gay agenda, even if its not easily discernable or even concisely articulated.. We see proponents of the lifestyle calling for things like equal rights (who can argue against that) and even marriage and adoption for gay couples. But a little digging into the gay rights movement will give you the bigger picture of what same sex marriage advocates are ultimately hoping to achieve. This is a movement that only begins with equal employment opportunities and protections but ultimately wants to reshape our institutions and our very society.
In 1972, the National Coalition of Gay Organizations drew up a “Gay Rights Platform” in Chicago. Among the notable goals of the platform was to seek to “repeal all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into a marriage unit; and the extension of legal benefits to all persons who cohabit regardless of sex or numbers”. In other words, the right for homosexuals to marry is simply the first step in the eventual destruction of the institution of marriage. And this is not a position that has been dropped over the last three decades. The notion of opening up marriage to any number of people is still pointed to time and time again by gay rights advocates. If the gay movement gets their way anyone can marry any number of other people, regardless of gender and (we will soon see) of age and the taxpayers will be left to cover the cost to society of these unstable and harmful unions. Imagine, a “marriage” of 4,5,6 men and women, all suing one another for alimony, child custody and support, and everything else that can come from a nasty divorce. Now imagine that extrapolated across the country and throughout the court system. read more »
