As one of those pop-cultural non-conformist types, please indulge me while I go ahead and toss that stifling, mind-numbing muzzle called political correctness.
I’m going to dispense with the subtleties and point out what most are thinking but won’t say for fear of the inevitable “progressive” backlash (shhhh… they’re everywhere): So-called “same-sex marriage” is a counterfeit. It’s a fraud and not even a good one at that. If marriage is a Rembrandt, then the ridiculous and oxymoronic notion of “gay marriage” is a Rembrandt knock-off from the pages of Mad Magazine. It’s a silly novelty.
I know. I’m “mean-spirited.” But in light of the California Supreme Court’s recent opinion — which enigmatically manufactured a “constitutional right” to “same-sex marriage” out of thin air — I think we need to come back to earth for a moment. Mind you, re-entry into reality’s atmosphere will inevitably burn some folks.
When same-sex friendships (or more often, seconds-old acquaintances) are twisted and sexualized, practitioners of “the sin that dare not speak its name” are forced, at every level, to merely mimic the genuine article. They jump through a series of inelegant hoops to create a fantasy world wherein two people of the same gender clumsily imitate natural heterosexual pairings properly designed for procreation and the healthy rearing of children.
Even “gay sex” (male-male anal sodomy) is a crude, man-made imitation of the natural heterosexual reproductive process (only the fallen mind of man could concoct such depraved and foul behavior). Sadly, as millions of homosexuals have had to learn the hard way, this disordered, makeshift simulation of a natural biological process is coldly rejected by the very human biology it mocks.
As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has illustrated time and again, unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences. Homosexual conduct — especially among males — creates an environment ripe for infectious disease and emotional and spiritual injury. This, by definition, is perversion. (“Perversion: Pathology. A change to what is unnatural or abnormal: a perversion of function or structure.” – Dictionary.com)
