Pro-Marriage Black Student Compared to the Likes of the KKK

A black Michigan high school student who was asked to give a presentation in his Law and Public Speaking class was given a failing grade for speaking out against same-sex marriage and then compared to the likes of the Klu Klux Klan by his teacher for his speech.

Ford Helps Sponsor Explicit, Sickening Homosexual Scene

Rather than backing down from its support of homosexuality, Ford Motor Company has apparently taken a "rub it in your face" attitude. On the January 16 episode of "Dirt," which airs on the FOX channel, Ford helped sponsor one of the most explicit, sickening homosexual scenes ever shown on television. Be forewarned, it is extremely graphic. Ford has made it extremely clear that they have no intentions of ending their support of homosexuality. Among other things, the company reneged on their agreement to remain neutral in the culture wars, increased their support of homosexual publications, sponsored TV programs pushing homosexuality and required employees to attend "diversity" training promoting homosexuality. For more information on Ford's track record, go to BoycottFord.com.

Do All Homosexuals Want to Get Married?

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThere are three groups of homosexuals who have three very different views on the issue of same-sex marriages. The first group includes those who want to redefine the institution of marriage to include gay and lesbian couples. They argue that this will be good for society and cause gay men to "settle down". The second group of homosexuals want nothing to do with marriage, viewing it as incompatible with the so-called sexual freedom of the gay culture. The third group advocate for the deconstructing of marriage altogether. They argue that the government should sanction all relationships of any conceivable make up and size, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, number of partners or age.

The first groups position is at odds with the other two. Let's take the second groups view of marriage. For these gays and lesbians the thought of participating in a traditional marriage ceremony doesn't bring joy to their hearts. Instead, it provokes anxiety and even revulsion. These individuals view marriage as conformist, confining and diametrically opposed to everything that "gay liberation" represents. They are all for equal rights and benefits, but they believe that affirming marriage - gay or straight -works against this.
Jim Rinnert, of In These Times magazine, shares this same view in an editorial titled "The Trouble with Gay Marriage":
"Gay marriage strikes me as, first and foremost, just another way to show the straights we're the same as them, that we're as "normal" as the heterosexuals with whom we share the planet and thereby are worthy of acceptance into their club....{G}uess what - we're not the same. We're different. Rather than try to paint heterosexual strips on our pelts, let's examine, explore, and celebrate our different coloration."
"Let them have it - the term and the institution. To engage in that argument is to be sidetracked by semantics...If you want to register at Target and get lots of stuff when you "wed," do it. Let heterosexual men and women have their institution and their names for it; we need to find the imagination and the guts to visualize and build our own." Click HERE for full article by Mr. Rinnert.
Disagreeing with the idea of same-sex marriage may suggest that some homosexuals, particularly gay men, are simply not "the marrying kind." Social science research would seem to support that view. A 2004 report from the University of Chicago indicated that 61 percent of the men in Chicago's gay community had more than thirty sexual partners, with 43 percent of that group reporting more than sixty partners. (Adrian Brune, "City Gays Skip Long-term Relationships: Study Say, " Washington Blade, February 27, 2004, p. 12).
As for the group that wishes to deconstruct the institution of marriage, Paula Ettelbrick has spoken for this group many times. Ms. Ettelbrick, who teaches law at New York University and Columbia University, cautions gays and lesbians about pursuing same-sex marriage in order to "make us feel good about ourselves". In her essay "Since When Is Marriage a Path to Liberation?" she makes this point:
"Marriage will not liberate us as lesbians and gay men. In fact, it will constrain us, make us more invisible, force our assimilation into the mainstream, and undermine the goals of gay liberation...Marriage runs contrary to two of the primary goals of the lesbian and gay movement: the affirmation of gay identity and culture and the validation of many forms of relationships."
Nancy Polikoff, a law professor at American University juxtaposed Ettelbrick's thoughts in an opinion piece in the Washington Blade:
"...Gay marriage will move us in the wrong direction if it limits legal recognition to married couples only." Read full opinion HERE.
According to Stanley Kurtz at the Hoover Institution, himself, along with Ettelbrick and Polikoff and other family law advocates, hope to use gay marriage to pave the way for the legalization of group marriage and the concomitant demise of all family categories:
"By ceasing to conceive of marriage as a partnership composed of one person of each sex, the state may become more receptive to units of three or more....All desirable changes in family law need not be made at once." (Stanley Kurtz, "Beyond Gay Marriage," Weekly Standard, August 4-11, 2003, pp. 26-33).
I am against same-sex marriages, however, I am a strong advocate for more rights for the homosexual community. This opinion is not new because it has been said and explained by me many times in various posts. I firmly believe that gay men and lesbian women are oppressed by society, mainly because there behaviors are unacceptable to what society views as "normal". This may be true, but on the other hand, we all need to learn to live together, but under better terms that is pleasing to both sides of the marriage issue.
I feel that the benefits that proponents of same-sex marriages are looking for fall under the Benefits Fairness Act. (Click HERE to read more about this act. )
A lot of same-sex supporters think that this act only further proclaims them as "secondary class citizens", it does however give them the many freedoms of marriage without redefining an institution.
We must come to some sort of middle ground, otherwise there will always be unnecessary strife and differences in opinion that will just further worsen the situation unless we can live together with a reasonable compromise.
As a final thought, what are some other compromises that we can come up with in order to please both sides on the marriage issue?
I am looking forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions as we come one step closer to living with each others differences.

Who is Focused on Hate???

Here are some of the pictures taken at the State House this past Tuesday during the Constitutional Convention. As I mentioned in my last post, most of the posters on the theme of hate and intolerance were property of the homosexual activists.

Why is it that those who are screaming for tolerance are so intolerant of those who share a different opinion then them?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Bigot (n.) One who is strongly partial to one's own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.
Sorry, traditional marriage supporters are not intolerant. The homosexual activists are intolerant of "those who differ" in opinion regarding how democracy should work. Remember, everyone has a right to vote on this issue.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Can someone tell me HOW we became to be "bigots"? This sounds like a lot of emotional bantering than anything else because the use of words are simply used illogically. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A plethora of hate and no action via a petition. This is your government too, petition it already!! You would have 134 votes to put the petition on the ballot as a result of all the support you have in the State House!

Our Side Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

O.K., this is sarcastic, but it is factual! Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A lot of stompping but no hate signs here. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
A little fresh, but STILL no hatred signs seen yet. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

If I had missed out on any other signs or events, as I was in the House Gallery for most of the afternoon, please share them with me. I want to get both sides of the story straight.

From what I experienced when I was outside in the morning, I just saw fallacious claims from gay marriage supporters and support for democracy from traditional marriage supporters.

LET THE PEOPLE VOTE!!

"...Using Children as Pawns for Adults..."

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingA Canadian pro-family activist says a recent ruling by the highest court in Ontario could prove to be more harmful to Canadian society than even legalized same-sex "marriage." Read Here for the full article.

Now, how is it in any way beneficial for a child to live with three parents? Oh, that's right, the old comeback of "how will it affect you" statement is conjured up.
What I am asking is how is three parents beneficial to a child instead of the normal two parents that consists of a mother and a father?
....Anyone, anyone???

Hurdle Number One Has Been Cleared!!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

As I showed up at the State House early yesterday morning to spend another day in the House Gallary not many soles were around. For what was going to be one of the most historical days in Massachusetts politics, regardles of the outcome of the marriage amendment, not many supporters or opponents wanted to brave the cold and windy weather.
As I was talking amongst my collegues about the lack of attendance for the Constitutional Convention I began to see more and more people gather out in front of the State House. With traditional marriage supporters on the State House side and gay marriage supporters across the street an obvious fact came to bloom as I was holding my "Let The People Vote" sign. All I could see on the State House side were the same signs as I was holding, with the "Jesus is Lord" banner and the homemade "Let The People Vote" signs sprinkled in for good measure. All I could see across the street were signs that read "Bigots" as well as "Hate Mongers". My favorite sign read "Learn to Be Tolerant". I really had to stratch my head on that one. Nonetheless, There was a whole lot of name calling and screaming from our opponents and a whole lot of "let the people vote" chants from our side. I'm sorry, who needs to be more tolerant??????

This screaming and "tolerant" theme continued even at the end of the day as marriage supporters gathered at the base of the State House steps to congratulate others for their hard work over the past year. Gay marriage supporters could not just walk by and be on their way. They had to yell such things as "bigots" and cause a big scene. Well, that's O.K. because for those who celebrate "extensions of time" for their cause, as was done after the conventions were recessed in July and November, dealing with a REAL celebration is hard to swallow.
For the last formal session of the current legislature, the day was filled with confusion and shock as the amendment prevailed by a vote of 62 - 134, which was 12 more votes than was needed for the amendment to move forward. Although the marriage amendment still needs to have the approval of another 50 legislative officials during the next Constitutional Convention in 2007, the first hurdle for democracy was cleared. For a local and statewide review of the day's events click on the colored coded words.
