Arguments Supporting Gay Marriage: March of Straw Men (in Fabulous Pumps)

Written by Luke Hamilton on May 17, 2013

Civil Rights – This is the Big Kahuna. This is the one to which they have pinned their entire mass marketing campaign: the equivalence between the historic struggle for civil rights by minorities and women and the struggle to normalize homosexuality today. As After the Ball describes, the goal is to shift homosexuality from being rightly viewed as volitional behavior to being inaccurately viewed as an identity. It is much more difficult to stand against an identity than it is a behavior. And so anyone who believes homosexuality is immoral behavior becomes a bigot who discriminates against an immutable identity.

The problem with this straw man is that race and gender are hard-wired into our genetic code. Sexual preference is not. I have met ex-gay individuals; I have never met an ex-Chinese person. Discrimination on the basis of arbitrary genetic characteristics is wrong because a person cannot change their race or gender. Even if cosmetic changes are enacted, one’s DNA will always reflect their true identity.

This is simply not the case, when it comes to sexual preference; just ask [NBA Megastar and Brave Hero] Jason Collins and his fiancée. The fact that identical twins, who share the same DNA sequencing, are rarely both gay demonstrates the fact that sexuality is not genetic or organic. It is volitional behavior and we discriminate on the basis of volitional behavior frequently. For example, we do not allow someone who has chosen to engage in binge drinking to drive home. Where are the Alcohol Rights parades?

As follows from Dennis Prager’s brilliant analysis of homosexuality, just as the increase of God’s prominence in Western society led to the decrease of sexual anarchy, the decrease of God’s prominence in Western society is leading to the increased prominence of sexual anarchy. But straw men wither and shrivel when exposed to the sunlight of truth. Ignore the copious parades of straw man in heels, refuse to tolerate illogical fallacies which are passed off as truth, and engage this ideological battle with a winsome and courageous spirit and we will win this day.
