Beware the Homosexual Agenda!!!!

GodToldMe.jpg
Lifted from Ms. Betty's Web site at CafePress.com

Imagine my surprise, my utter stupefaction, to discover how little I know, dupe that I am, about all those gay people who apparently have, of all things, an agenda. Frankly I'm besides myself now with disgust and anger over how I've been taken in. All this time I simply thought gay people wanted to be left alone, treated like everyone else, a few wanted to be a bit flamboyant at times but then I always figured why shouldn't they have the same rights as Paris Hilton; God, I was such a SAP!

You haven't heard of the Homosexual Agenda? Thank the Lord that you visited this blog! After doing some in-depth research (ok, I only Googled it, but if it's good enough for my students it's good enough for me) I found the following at CitizenLinkQ&A: The Homosexual Agenda (Note: CitizenLink is maintained by Focus on the Family, founded by that really neat Christian right wing fun-loving guy, James Dobson, who'd just love to have the opportunity to help you straighten your life out through the healing message of Jesus and his organization's intervention - Praise the Lord!) Here's the agenda:

1. "Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible." That was aimed at making people so tired of the issue they would want to give them anything they want to make them shut up. [Wow, those clever and extremely sneaky homosexuals, they take their tactics right out of "How to be an Obnoxious Four-Year Old or Teenager".]

2. "Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers." That's why they exploited things like the tragic murder of Matthew Shepard. It was a tragic murder, yet they have used that and spun that to demonize people like Dr. James Dobson and other Christian leaders who have taken a biblical stand on homosexual behavior — people who have love and compassion for those trapped in that behavior. [Damn right. We all know that the biblical stand on homosexuals is to beat them silly or kill them any opportunity we have, or if we don't have the cujones to do it ourselves to tell the world "Well, those sodomites got what was comin' to 'em as everyone knows that Jesus don't like 'em and neither should we - but we'll be happy to save their sinning souls if they just let us, otherwise we got no use for 'em and they can rot in hell, and the sooner the better."]

3. "Give homosexual protectors a just cause." That was designed to tap into and exploit the almost innate sense of fairness that Americans have; to the sympathy that we have — especially liberals have — for those who seem to be disenfranchised. [God, how on target this is! Those gays who can be denied housing, the right to marry, the opportunity to have families (icky, icky, right?), any legal protection afforded us Jesus-sanctioned heterosexuals simply because they're gay, so they have absolutely no right to claim disenfranchisement and take advantage of those poor liberals looking for a cause to champion - have those homosexuals no shame?!?!?!?!] {Warning: your blogger is starting to get dizzy}

4. "Make gays look good." That's what they've done through media campaigns, through television programs, like "Will and Grace" and others, where homosexuals are portrayed as the most normal, stable people in America. [This one sort of confuses me, I mean the majority, though not all, of the gays I've known had no trouble making themselves look good - well, it must be to do with the media coverage thing and really, how dare they be made to look good by Dan Rather or Katrie Kouric, or whomever it is these days, when Jesus so clearly doesn't want them? The simple nerve of these people sometimes just takes your ever-loving breath away!]

5. "Make the victimizers look bad." They portray people of faith — people who have legitimate and biblical reasons to oppose homosexual behavior — as homophobes and bigots. They also try to "muddy the moral waters" by getting liberal churches, many of which have thrown out a great deal of the Bible, to say that homosexual behavior is just fine from a theological perspective. [Now everyone knows that people of faith are victimizers who in no way earn our scorn or admonishment when they dump on gays. Of course people of faith have legitimate reasons for not liking gays, and then there are those biblical reasons which are all they really need, and if Jesus says it's not ok, well dang it that's all I need, and to hell with those liberal churches that throw out any part of the Bible! Everyone knows you simply can't pick and choose what you want out of the Bible, you either buy into it in toto or it's off to hell you go!]

6. "Get funds from corporate America." In fact, they have. They have gotten corporate America to sign on to their agenda, and it is very interesting how they have done that. It's based on fudging the truth — and outright lies. [Would you believe it? We actually have corporations giving money to gay causes? What's the world coming to? Who cares that gays like to spend money like the rest of us, and in some cases spend a lot of money, and therefore other than for their gayness make excellent customers that any business would like to keep happy? To think that the gays have been "fudging" (the guy talking about the agenda used the word, NOT me - maybe he does have a sense of humor?) the truth, and engaging in outright lies with which they've managed to take in those gullible business people in order to get their corporate sponsorship. Have these gays no shame?!?]

Disclaimer: What got me on this rant was an article in today's NY Times, Washington Court Upholds Ban on Gay Marriage. Of course someone in there from a religious group was quoted about the homosexual agenda and I was wondering what it was exactly. I had encountered the expression in Michelle Goldberg's book, Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism but she doesn't lay it out quite as succinctly as does CitizenLink above, likely because she didn't want to be accused of making fun of the Christian Right, which isn't overwhelmingly as obtuse as those writing for CitizenLink would seem to be - though let's not underestimate group obtuseness and how that frames an issue, especially one where a group of people is being set apart and denigrated for no particular reason than prejudice and hatred. If you don't believe me ask any good Nazi.

What especially got me in the Times article was the following quote from one of the Washington state Supreme Court justices:

“Limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples,” Justice Barbara A. Madsen wrote in that opinion, “furthers procreation, essential to the survival of the human race, and furthers the well-being of children by encouraging families where children are reared in homes headed by the children’s biological parents.”

Little did I know that I married to help with " ... the survival of the human race" - the higher causes that I buy into that I don't know about simply overwhelm me sometimes (I'm typing this with my right hand as I wipe away a tear streaming down my cheek with my left)! I'm not into this "activist judges" horse manure, but in this case you have to wonder what agenda Justice Madsen has in mind. I mean marriage is intended to sustain the survival of the human race, and being raised by your "biological" parents is what matters, not that you're loved, cared for, and nurtured into being the best possible addition to the human race that you can be - i.e. not just a human of one, in a manner of speaking. Well, I can only wonder what Justice Madsen thinks of birth control and a whole list of issues I won't belabor here.

Well anyway, if after reading this you're not compelled to go out and bash a gay for Jesus, then good for you. Hug your kid instead and hope it's a better and more understanding world by the time they have to really go out and play in it - but don't count on it.

P.S. Another take on the Homosexual Agenda, better than mine, can be found at: The Homosexual Agenda Revealed! Conservative Christians discover what radical homosexual activists are up to! Christians Proudly Hating Through The Anointing of Jesus, by Ms. Betty Bowers who has some great stuff to sell if you make your way to the bottom of the site (I highly recommend it.)

I'm sorry-- number three just caught my eye.

"Make gays look good?" Listen, they already look FABulous-- that's why we ladies look askance and even sometimes with revulsion at our boneheaded boyfriends and hapless husbands' choice of wardrobe-- way before Queer Eye for the Straight Guy ever reared its head as part of this agenda of which we speak.

Corduroys? With crepe-soled shoes? With a T-shirt you wore in high school? Ay yi yi.

Let's not forget that those who bleat on about this gay agenda also told us that STDs and HIV were God's judgment upon that promiscuous gay lifestyle-- ignoring the fact that, by that standard, lesbians must be the Chosen People.

As far as I'm concerned, if you want to take another child out of the foster care system, and you're a stable, loving person, more power to you.

Ms. C,

I shan't divulge my satorial deficiencies, but as to your following comment:

"As far as I'm concerned, if you want to take another child out of the foster care system, and you're a stable, loving person, more power to you."

All I can say is, "Amen sister!"
