What I fear most about the gay agenda?

There are those on one end of the spectrum who are attracted to those of the same sex and there are those on the other end of the spectrum who are attracted to those of the opposite sex, but there are also many who fall somewhere along a continuum between these two extremes. To add to this often confusing idea people sexuality is somewhat fluid so they can migrate along this continuum too.

To the fault of many parents this is a topic often misunderstood and not addresses. The power of suggestion is a strong thing. Teaching about homosexuality in the class room will encourage more experimentation with ones sexuality. If homosexuality is taught in our school system then indirectly teachers will be saying whichever end of this spectrum you fall on is what dictates who you are attracted too and act on that. But for those who don’t fall on either extreme, will be encouraged indirectly to fool around until they decide which they like better. I hate the fact that sex is seen as an “activity”, something to do rather then an expression of love, by many. But I also think same sex sexual relationships are wrong. We should not encourage our kids to pick whichever side they want. Rather parents need to step it up, teach there kids that sexuality is a fluid thing. If they don’t find themselves on one of the other extreme, in most cases, they have a choice to foster their heterosexual side. Though being gay is not wrong, we should not act on those desires because the traditional family strengthens our society and is better overall for our country, communities and homes.

There are fabulous gay couples out there doing good things, but the traditional family does more for the greater good. Keep the education of homosexuality out of the schools. The only way to do this is to protect traditional marriage (by passing laws like Proposition 8).

  1. I agree with what you are saying here. Teaching about sex and presenting it as a form of entertainment increases sexual activity. It doesn’t make them make “informed choices” or what ever, it makes go out and experiment sexually. Mix in some information about homosexual acts and you are likely to get some kids experimenting with that too.

    The whole of society needs to learn about the purpose and meaning of sex. It unites husband and wife in a special way and provides a way to bring new life into the world. It’s not something you share around with those that you meet or something that you do as a form of entertainment.

    A dear friend at church has a daughter in high school. One day during our Prop 8 sign waving, I asked her what school was like for her daughter with all this going on. She answered without pause that homosexuality is already pervasive in schools. She said that young women are scorned if they do not experiment with Lesbianism and boys egg the girls on to kiss their “partners.” I agree wholeheartedly that adding a government sanction of the behavior to the mix will only increase said behavior. It’s wrong. Absolutely wrong.

  3. I find it admiral that you point to an ideal in a relationship as the only one you prefer. It would be nice if every child were born into an intact and ongoing family. The reality is that a huge number of children are raised in single mom families. Where is your sense of “two parent” injustice when it comes to these families? Your argument is nothing more than thinly veiled contempt for families you cannot comprehend. The sanctity of what you consider marriage was broken by the divorce laws in the last century. Realize that you are hurting families by your exclusive ideal.

  4. This is exactly right, there is too much thought that equates physical intimacy with recreation rather than responsibility. It skews the way we view things and children are the victims.

    Vegas,
    Sure the traditional family is by far not the only family out there, but they help hold up society more than any other group. That is why we need to protect this ideal as much as possible.

    I find this posting to be appalling.

    To suggest that homosexuality will be taught in the classroom is ludicrous. I was never taught about heterosexuality in schools why then would homosexuality suddenly become a topic of interest? There is barely enough money for art and music programs, I hardly believe that ANY public school board would suddenly add a human sexuality course to any school especially at the elementary level. More over morality need NEVER be taught in schools. That it strictly up to the parent to decide what is morally proper for their child, please do not tax teachers even further by suggesting that they be the ones to inform your child on which morals are the right ones. I was raised Mormon and through the teachings of my parents I made the decision to wait until marriage for sex. I was never tempted otherwise because my PARENTS taught me about morals and virtues.

    Traditional families do not in any way strengthen the social environment any more than any other family or do more for the greater good. However it is well intentioned TRADITIONAL families that inadvertently teach their children that anything different from them is unnatural and wrong. It is also the traditional family that, unbeknownst to them, has taught their gay son or lesbian daughter that who they are in somehow wrong. Even more damaging is the fact that you could be demonizing one of your own children without even knowing it. Teaching them that if they are gay or lesbian they better keep their mouths shut and not approach you with their feelings. In addition to alienating them from you, you are sending the message that they will be treated as less than acceptable members of society regardless of the good they preform in their community. This unintentional discrimination leads to so many gay and lesbian teens to take severe actions that frequently include suicide. It is because people take a narrow minded stance on situations outside of their comfort zones that this conflict between gay and anti-gay people even exists. Beetlebabee is right when they say that children are the victims. However they are victims of being taught a oversimplified view of reality that ingrains in them an inability to accept that there is a world that does not subscribe to their personal beliefs but who are just as vital to society.

    To say that the traditional family holds up society more than any other is a severely distorted view of reality. Gay and lesbian people also pay taxes that pay for the schools that educate YOUR child. They, like you, pay the taxes for the services such as the fire department and police that protect all of our homes and families and in MOST cases they pay more. They aren’t granted the same benefits and tax breaks that traditional families are, so in essence they are paying even more for your security and the security of us all. Gay and lesbian people who have families just like yours are in many communities responsible for having the safest, cleanest neighborhoods (see the Castro district in San Francisco and the massive influx of heterosexual families moving in.) They are the ones you turn to, to have your hair done, clothing designed, flowers arranged, home decorated etc, etc, etc. Do not for one minute try to assume that the traditional family is the back bone that supports this country. We are all in this together and we could not do it alone. Shame on you for suggesting otherwise.

    It is time to wake up and come out of the perceived reality provided by our church leaders and other mentors. Passing laws like Prop 8 does nothing more than weaken society by sending the message that if a group of people is uncomfortable with the idea of another, then a law can be passed effectively removing their civil rights, reducing them to second class citizens in their own country. Passing laws in support of gay marriage will not promote gay experimentation anymore than laws regarding the use of alcohol and tobacco create a desire to experiment with them. It is up to the parent of the child to teach what is morally acceptable in your individual family unit and allow for the possibility that no matter what you have determined to be acceptable your child has their own free agency and will do as they see fit. By claiming to be defending your children by supporting such atrocities as Prop 8 is in effect using your child as a human shield, how very disturbing.

    Great post! I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work.

    I’ve just started a new blog that will be highlighting the dangerous advances of the secular progressive movement (pro-gay “rights”, pro-abortion, anti-religious freedoms, etc). Unfortunately, most Christians still don’t know what’s going on out there and the mainstream media certainly isn’t covering it.

    Right now I’ve got a post up about a homosexual middle school that’s opening in Milwaukee you might want to check out here:

    http://religionandmorality.wordpress.com/2009/01/09/milwaukee-to-open-nations-first-homosexual-middle-school/

    We’re looking to build a solid group of social conservatives who’ll frequent our site regularly and contribute to some good discussions. I hope you’ll check us out!

    If you’ll add us to your blogroll we’ll gladly add you to ours. Just drop us a comment over at our blog so that we’ll know to add you. Our blog is called Religion and Morality.

    Thanks!

    True blue…

    First I would say you are misinformed about homosexuality being taught in the schools. Check out an article that just came out two days ago about Massachusetts. The budget for education on same sex attraction has not been touched. Though I don’t personally agree with everything this article is saying the gay agenda is being pushed forward even in the currently economic conditions.

    I completely agree with you when you say,

    “It is up to the parent of the child to teach what is morally acceptable in your individual family unit and allow for the possibility that no matter what you have determined to be acceptable your child has their own free agency and will do as they see fit.”

    Parents need to talk with their kids about sexuality and what is morally acceptable, and do so in a way that their kids can express where they stand. If your kid happens to be attracted to people of the same sex what should your moral code be? Should it have to change suddenly? NO!! We have an choice in life to live virtuously.

    Families who find that they have a child who has a same sex attraction need to be supportive of them. Having a same sex attraction is not wrong it is just a disorder. The problem arises when they submit to these desires and take part in homosexual sex. Homosexual sex is wrong, it is not in keeping with human nature.
