SSM: Tying the Gordian knot, by Julia Patrick.
The same sex marriage push didn’t just appear overnight. It’s the result of carefully crafted campaigns by US homosexuals with clever marketing techniques to manipulate a naïve public into supporting ‘marriage’ for same sex attracted couples. Branded as ‘equality’ for all, the aim is to upend society as we know it and remake it in their own image. …
In the first 60 years of the 20th century, both church and state regarded marriage as the foundation stone of civilised society. But gradually Marxist libertarian theories took hold and ‘freedom’, particularly sexual freedom, became the new, trendy and deliciously desirable way to go. …
In the early 1950s, Harry Hay was the first to plant the idea that homosexuals, like blacks, were an oppressed minority, using it to pursue the then very radical concept of homosexual ‘rights’. He became a prominent supporter of the infamous pro-paedophilia (NAMBLA) North American Man-Boy Love Association and was considered by many as the ‘father’ of the modern ‘gay’ movement.
Hay was an ‘inspiration’ to Kevin Jennings, a high school teacher in Massachusetts who in 1990 founded the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Jennings’ ambition was to indoctrinate children with homosexual ‘education’ through the schools; but he was aware that an overt curriculum would be unacceptable to parents.
‘If the Radical Right can succeed in portraying us as preying on children, we will lose,’ he said. ‘Their language… is laced with subtle and not-so-subtle innuendo that we are “after their kids”.’
In a speech in 1995, he outlined his dilemma and the need for a back door approach to take his agenda into schools in a way that would otherwise have brought condemnation.
Bullying, he claimed, particularly homophobic bullying, begets violence. Schools should be ‘safe’ from bullying of all kinds. Latching onto the ‘safety’ theme, he tapped into a value that everyone has in common: the desire for ‘safety’ is universal, particularly when it concerns children. Anyone opposing this could then be accused of disregarding children’s safety. It was a clever tactic to outwit any coming opposition.
The plan took off a treat, and by 2011 the activists were so emboldened that Daniel Villarreal wrote on Queerty.com: ‘We want our educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact, our very future depends on it. Recruiting children? You bet we are.’
The once light, bright and joyful word “gay,” and now rainbows, have been commandeered and politicized by the homosexuals. Is the term “marriage” the next to go?
