Yesterday, Tea Party Nation president Judson Phillips sent members a column from his group’s website titled “Too Much Gay Everything,” which criticizes the media’s treatment of Michael Sam’s “nauseating” and “lugubrious” kiss.
The author, conservative activist Alan Caruba, writes that his anti-gay prejudice “is based on biology and history” and that “being gay is not normal.”
As is typical in anti-gay columns, Caruba goes on to warn that schools are promoting homosexuality and that “anyone with a handful of functioning brain cells” opposes legalizing same-sex marriage.
I like to think of myself as a tolerant person. I have, however, one prejudice that is based on biology and history.
Michael Sam, the first openly gay professional football prospect, made history when he was filmed by an ESPN crew giving his lover, Vito Cammisano, a long, lugubrious kiss to celebrate being selected in the National Football League draft on May 10th. The sight of two men kissing passionately was not something I and a lot of other folks wanted to see.
A spokesman for GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Discrimination, called the kiss “a significant milestone”, describing it as “touching.” No it wasn’t. It was nauseating to any heterosexual having to witness it or explain it to their children. We need to understand that being gay is not normal. Biologically, species exist because the male and female genders exist for the purpose of procreation and propagation.
Historically, gays have been held in disdain in every era of civilization. Today in the Islamic Middle East you can be killed for being gay, but you can also be killed for being Christian. In the West both actions are an abomination.
I don’t want to hear much about gays for any reason. The kiss was not something I would want young people to see on television or anywhere else. The bigger problem is that our younger generation, progressing through our schools, is being systematically taught to accept homosexuality as just another version of normality.
Being a youngster of any age is stressful enough, but being young and gay just adds to the stress and someone should tell them they will live with that for the rest of their lives.
Most certainly parents do not send their children to our public schools to learn about homosexuality, bisexuality, or being transgendered.
What a very large portion of the heterosexual population objects to is the appalling and aggressive effort of the homosexual minority to redefine marriage. Anyone with a handful of functioning brain cells knows that marriage is the union of a man and a woman. Same-sex marriage is an assault on the traditional, historical and global understanding of marriage, the keystone of any society.
