Pro-gay sign actually makes the case for the unique role of one man & one woman

A sign outside an establishment in the Chelsea neighborhood in New York City reads: “If you don’t like gay marriage, blame straight people. They’re the ones who keep having gay babies.”

The photo is bouncing around Facebook by supporters of the new law, including a family member of mine who supports gay marriage. She “liked” the photo.

The sign has that classic gotcha tactic in that it jokingly “blames” straight couples for creating gay children.

Well, yes, I suppose that’s true. After all, a male-male couple cannot create a gay person (nor a straight person for that matter). And the same thing is true for a female-female couple. Only the union of male and female can create new human life, gay or straight.

This sign, championed by supporters of same-sex marriage, undermines its own message and unwittingly speaks to the uniqueness of the male-female union.

    Geez, it’s funny how feminists only care about marriage, sex, and motherhood when some gay guys come along and threaten to do it better. (Usually, feminists just complain about how all the above is “oppression”). Feminists are such spoilsports. Just admit it, ladies. You don’t want men to be happy. Gay men are a big threat to feminism because gays prove men can be happy – without women. Heaven forbid women gave up their power to control, demean and abuse males!

    Civil unions of same sex couples can provide the same legal rights for those couples that marriage can. So why the insistence on marriage? Same sex marriages can never be sanctioned in churches,synagogs, and mosques that are true to one of the three Abrahamic religions. The only way that gays can have their unions “sanctified” is by leading their church away from the doctrine that those religions have held for millenia. It is no coincidence that one of the goals of political progressives is the same as the gay agenda, changing churches away from their long-held doctrine to make them proponents instead of opponents of their agenda.

      Things that violate the natural law always lead to unhappiness. Because homosexual activity violates the natural law, it makes those who engage in such activity, at the very bottom, unhappy (whether they admit it publicly or not). The push for such relationships to be recognized as marriages is for no other reason than to feel good about something they can never feel good about. It is a band-aid in the form of society saying, “it’s okay” when they and everyone else knows, deep down, its not. It will never make them happy.

        Clearly you have no understanding of natural law. I love it when people just randomly make stuff up to justify their biases. Wouldn’t it just be easier to say you don’t like gay people and want to be able to continue your gay bashing. I know a number of gay people and they are wonderful loving people, unlike yourself. And don’t flatter yourself, they don’t look to people like your for validation. Why would they?

          tee hee…Jake, there is nothing quite like saying “you have no understanding of natural law” and then not providing any evidence that such a statement is true, and then pointing toward completely irrelevant anecdotal experience such as “i know a number of…” You’re actually proving my point rather well. Things that violate the natural law, such as murder, homosexuality, and other things are abhorrent to people. This helps explain the severe rates of depression, substance abuse, domestic violence, and suicide among homosexuals, as well as their tremendous drive to equate their friendships with marriage for no other reason than to have people say they are normal, which they are not. Even if the whole world said they were, they would still know it to be untrue and would still be miserable. This is the case in nations where homosexual friendships have been considered marriages for nearly a decade now. It simply doesn’t work because it simply isn’t true. You cannot validate what violates the natural law, because it will always remain invalid. Opinions matter not. The truth that homosexual behavior is a violation of natural law does not change based upon opinion. Oh, and as for “bashing”, such comments hold no weight, for nowhere in any of my logical defenses of true marriage have I “bashed” anyone. Truth cannot “bash” someone. Does the sun rising “bash” you? If so, it sounds like a “you” problem.

    It is something like the wording in “A Mind is a Terrible Thing to Waste”. The mind is not a terrible thing. By the way, stop using the euphamism for homosexual. Say homosexual instead of placing a happy-face moniker on such an egregions behaviour.

    How ignorant. Homosexuals are not born. It is a cognizant decision to follow the wayward desires of the carnal nature of man. If it were in the genes, it would have been phased out by now!

      …British Prime Minister Gordon Brown offered a posthumous apology for the “inhumane” treatment of Alan Turing, the World War II codebreaker who committed suicide in 1954 after being prosecuted for homosexuality and forcibly treated with female hormones.
      The mathematician helped crack Nazi Germany’s Enigma encryption machine — a turning point in the war — and is considered a father of modern computing.
      In 1952, however, Turing was convicted of gross indecency for having sex with a man and offered a choice between prison and “chemical castration” — the injection of female hormones to suppress his libido. His security clearance was revoked and he was no longer allowed to work for the government.
      Two years later, he killed himself at age 41 by eating an apple laced with cyanide…

      Looks like if this “not born” homosexual had been killed earlier, The Allies would have been phased out by now…
