Cal Thomas wrote an article for the Washington Post on April 7th, 2009. I must say it was something else. What I mean by that, is that he has managed to link the LGBT community with some amazing accomplishments. Of course these accomplishments go against EVERYTHING the Religious Right stand for, but often are the very ones caught in scandals involving some of these very issues.
One must hand it to the gay rights movement. They have taken advantage of a morally exhausted nation that tolerates so many things that used to be intolerable - from abortion, to easy divorce, to pornography. And they have attacked American traditions at their strongest points, from the military, to pressuring Disney to allow "gay days" at their amusement parks, to marriage.
The problem is the Iowa court ruling vitiates a standard that defined marriage as between two people of the opposite sex, which was God's idea, not government's (see Genesis 2:24), while failing to substitute a new standard.If gay marriage is now one of two equally valid choices, will other options be available anytime soon?
Read the rest here.
It is amazing to me who such a small group of Americans 2-5% that is, can manage to have so much control.
Then again we have this bit of information coming from Tony Perkins, Family Research Council: “Same-sex ‘marriage’ is a movement driven by wealthy homosexual activists and a liberal elite determined to destroy not only the institution of marriage, but democracy as well. Time and again, we see when citizens have the opportunity to vote at the ballot box, they consistently opt to support traditional marriage.”

But those lovely Ladies? Over at Concerned Women for America: had this to say.
“Vermont legislators’ futile attempt to replace God by vainly redefining marriage eerily follows how that first man and woman acted on the first temptation — and the root of all temptations — to act as if they were gods. That one decision by Adam and Eve to believe that they could ‘be like God’ separated them from God, destroyed the peace that they had experienced, and ushered in what some would call ‘unintended consequences’ of pain and destruction.”
This is some bat-shit crazy gibberish goin on in that last statement.

Man I tell you the fundies have gone off the deep end this week, No matter how many times the point is made that our Constitution is set up to protect minorities from the tyranny of the majority, mob rule if you will. I say Obama needs to get on the ball with that Health Care Reform, these people aren't getting their medication.
Now given these groups pension for smaller government you think they would be rejoicing especially if gay marriage will destroy our political system, you would think they would be cheering it along the way. I have one word for these people. HYPOCRITE.
