America’s push towards China

I have a friend from China. I met her eight years ago while she was doing a study abroad, in Washington states, when she was in High school for a year. I can vividly recall her explaining how the Chines government has an ethics subject for each grade. They learn things like: don’t cheat, be honest, take care of your parents as they age, the value of family, why having only one child is a good thing, and why abortions are good. Since the Chines government mixes in questionable values with lots of good ones, students don’t question that the ethical lesson is not right or an appropriate subject for the government to teach.

I remember thinking at the time, What!?! A government is teaching their rising generation the value system they want them to buy into. Even if part of that value system is a matter of debate and not a universal ethical value. At the time I was so thankful that I lived in a country that didn’t do this. China is a great place, but they have a ways to go before they measure up to the freedoms we enjoy in America.

When I recalled this story recently I took a deep foreboding breath as I realized America is pushing towards the Chines way. A way I saw as backwards and manipulative eight years ago and still see it that way today.

Obama is quickly moved toward repealing the Defense of Marriage Act which would lead to overturning the laws passed in 45 states to protect marriage and leading to the legalization of gay marriage on the federal level.

We need to take a stand and let our representives in Congress know how we feel about that.  Please take a moment to contact them.  Let them know that they need to protecting the will of voters all across the country.  A few judges in Massachusetts and Connecticut should not to force same-sex marriage on the entire nation.

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).
