Following the defeat of an ordinance in Anchorage, Alaska, which would have prohibited discrimination based on people’s sexual orientation or gender identity, the anti-gay group Concerned Women for America rejoiced at the proposition’s defeat with warnings that such anti-discrimination ordinances open the door for the legalization of pedophilia and education classes to turn children gay:
Alaska is one of a dozen states that have not caved to the pressure of pro-homosexuality activist groups, liberal politicians, and the “mainstream” media to equate sexual behavior with race, granting it special protection under the law.
These so-called protections do nothing more than promote the acceptance of homosexuality and other sexually deviant behaviors. There is no evidence that homosexuals are disproportionately discriminated against in Alaska because it does not have this law.
But if homosexual groups continue to gain ground in equating homosexual behavior with race, they will have gone a long way toward making the courts impose homosexual “marriage” on every state.
Another danger is what happens in schools as the result of this type of legislation. Homosexual groups quickly move in to “educate” children on the LGBT struggles and “tolerance.” This allows them to promote homosexual behavior not only as acceptable, but as good and desirable. We have seen how they have asked children, “How do you know you are not homosexual if you have not tried it?”
These troubles will beget more troubles. Currently there are cases making the arguments that polygamists are being discriminated against in the same way as LGBT groups. What about pedophiles, who now go by their version of GLBT: MAP, or Minor Attracted Persons? Are they being discriminated against?
When you protect “sexual orientation,” that term can be defined in any number of ways at different points in time. Sure, they usually limit it today to heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual, but the APA once identified about 22 different types of sexual preferences. The reason homosexual activists just stick with those three today is because that is all they believe society will approve. If you notice, they sometimes limit the reach of “trangenders rights” in many ways. But they will continue the fight for “sexual liberation” when we are “ready.”
Think about it, they are gaining much momentum in re-defining the word “marriage.” Nobody would have thought of that a few years back. Do you think it would be that difficult to redefine “sexual orientation?”
