Most gay rights activists say they?re simply working for ?equal rights.? But two recent court cases demonstrate that, whether they realize it or not, they?re really working for something quite different.
The first case concerns Cheryl Clark, a former lesbian, now a Christian.
And that?s not all. At McLeod?s request, the court also barred
The second case is equally bizarre. After David Blanchflower divorced his wife,
Even gay activists are upset about this one, arguing that it portrays homosexual relationships as less ?significant.? One advocacy group wrote in a ?friend of the court? brief, ?
Many in our culture have fallen for the argument that homosexuality is inborn, even though that argument is based on faulty evidence and wouldn?t matter if it were true. But this leads to the conclusion that, by nature, homosexuals are cut off from enjoying the same rights that the rest of us enjoy. So we change the law accordingly. That?s why even some conservatives who are against gay ?marriage? are in favor of ?civil unions.?
But as you have heard me say before, homosexual relationships are not the same as heterosexual relationships. A heterosexual relationship brings together the two sexes to complement and fulfill each other; a homosexual relationship cannot. And nearly all heterosexual relationships are able to produce children; homosexuals cannot without a third party.
So, ironically, any effort to treat homosexuality equal with heterosexuality ends up treating homosexuality as a special case, forcing us to bend the rules that govern our society?and create spurious concepts like ?psychological parents.? We need to realize this before it?s too late: Trying to create equivalency where none exists can only end in confusion and chaos.
