Conservative Biggies Shrug/Squirm at High Court’s Gay Marriage Hokum

Written by Steve Pauwels on June 26, 2013

This bogusly imputed “hatred”, of course, has nothing to do with denouncing a lifestyle scores of millions consider destructive, perverted, unbiblical and bad for our nation. It has nothing to do with emotionally wounded homosexuals’ admittedly pitiable pot-banging for constantly being patted on the head and told they’re wonderful; told so at all costs, including the transmogrification of civilization’s foundational institution .

Yes, you really can “hate the sin” yet “love the sinner”; in fact, you should do so. But so what? That’s irrelevant to whether a troubled minority ought to use the instrumentality of Washington, D.C. to redefine the language, to pitch history out the window, to turn the Constitution on its head for the sake of sparing their hurt feelings.

Anyway, someone needs to remind Glen Beck that his gooey efforts to show himself big-hearted aren’t going to win over the thuggish Lavender Legion. The radical same-sex lobby will despise him no matter what he says; unless, admittedly, he does a U-Turn and affirms homosexual couplings are equal in every way to –no, actually superior to — those colorless, haggard heterosexual unions.

The nation is about to find this out with a rainbow-tinged vengeance – as churches will be informed, sometime in the not too distant future, that they MUST make available sodomite wedding ceremonies; as private businesses like florists, bakeries, photographers, etc. will increasingly find themselves strong-armed into providing services for “same-sex couples”. (I say “increasingly” because, though the latter is already occurring, it will be doing so more and more predictably; count on it.)

“Conservative spokesmen” like Laura Ingraham and Glen Beck, both of whom I dig, nonetheless bear a measure of the blame for this turn of events. Howcum? They seem equally — or more — concerned about the witty music they can play in the wake of these execrable high court holdings or in demonstrating their “tolerant” bona fides to intolerant Progressives than about denouncing phony marriage.

There’s nothing frivolous or amusing or vaguely acceptable about these judicial travesties. Fully in order is outrage anchored in the very souls of those who care about the survival of the family and of America. The overruling priority of those who insist on defending real marriage ought not to be showing that we’re still good guys.

As long as “conservatives” don’t get that? We lose on this issue.
