Liberty and Virtue

A person who experiences same sex attraction and who endeavors to live chastely in accordance with his religious beliefs keeps an eye out for examples of gay activists' (1) showing intolerance and hatred of traditional religious and moral beliefs and believers, (2) attempting to deny freedom of speech, assembly and religion to others, and (3) trying to cause the government to impose liberal views on sexual morality on society. Other stuff of interest to blogger may also occasionally be posted.

Gay activists do not speak for all those who experience same sex attraction!

Not all those with SSA reject traditional sexual morality!

Not all those with SSA support promiscuity!

Not all those with SSA believe the gay activist ideology of “gay pride”!

Not all those with SSA believe in making their sex drive their primary public identity!

Not all those with SSA support public indecency in “gay pride” parades!

Not all those with SSA support government promotion of homosexual activity!

Not all those with SSA support same sex marriage!

Not all those with SSA support biased teaching in public schools on homosexual matters!

Not all those with SSA demonize traditional religious believers!

Not all those with SSA wish to deny basic freedoms of speech, religion and association to those who disagree with the gay activists’ ideology and agenda!

Christian charity for persons does not require affirmation of sinful or immoral activity!

Marriage and Estate Planning

The Boston Bar Journal (on dead tree, so no link) of November/December 2004 had an article with the above title by a family lawyer named Lisa Madeleine Cukier. The last paragraph is quite telling, showing that same sex "marriage" is all about getting government and cultural approval of homosexual activty, and has nothing to do with freedom:

In sum, the predictability and portability of marriage can only be approximated for same-sex spouses by executing a well considered estate plan. Given the uncertainty in the law, and in light of the critical need and expense of executing estate planning documents to proximate marital rights and protections available to opposite-sex couples, many lesbians and gay men question whether there is any truly appreciable benefit to marriage. There is. Only marriage will offer same-sex couples and their children the cultural common ground that the word "marriage" connotes. The implications of the shorthand term "marriage" for all that it signifies, in itself, is a marital benefit of the most significant degree.
