The "Queering" of America
Advancing the Homosexual Agenda in America
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
"Queer" was the acceptable term used to define homosexuals in America when I was a wee lad. Now, well after the introduction (from Europe) of the Political Correctness agenda, homosexuals are referred to as "gay." In my opinion, that compromises a perfectly good word in the English language that used to mean, "happy."
Two things are going on here. Two very important, society and life changing agendas have joined together to force Americans to accept a way of life that is destructive to the individual and to society as a whole.
Political correctness is simply another name/term for "moral relativism." Defined honestly, it is nothing more than a mask placed over the truth by a deliberate choice of words that convey a different meaning for -- and -- are intended to deflect a seeker of fact and truth from his/her goal ... the realization of certain facts or the truth.
Moral relativism is insidious. It is man's way of giving himself approval to do the unthinkable. Religiously, moral relativism allows one to sin with no guilt. In law it allows one to violate the law with no guilt. Moral relativism allows one to drown kittens, for instance, and not only feel no guilt, but to actually enjoy the experience as he reveals his treachery to others.
Moral relativism, known today as political correctness, is a tool of evil forged in Hell's foundry and deployed by the minions of The Evil One to advance the cause of man's defiance of all things good and decent -- even man's God.
Political correctness/moral relativism is in direct conflict with the Judeo-Christian faith. While the Judeo-Christian faith teaches right and wrong -- and the difference -- moral relativism teaches that there is no absolute right and there is no absolute wrong ... period.
Understand that civil law, for the most part, is based on the Judeo-Christian code of what is right and what is wrong. Under moral relativism, each individual gets to decide what is right and wrong for himself/herself, never mind the Judeo-Christian code, and never mind the law based upon that code.
Political correctness, in my opinion, is pure, unadulterated EVIL.
Life is totally meaningless. That is the basis for political correctness/moral relativism. Under that reasoning there is no point in adherence to a code of good and bad, of decent and indecent behavior, of a lifestyle that contributes to the well being of all fellowman, or is strictly selfish, self-centered, and self-absorbed. It makes no difference, whatsoever, because, hey, anything goes.
Studies indicate 75% of American college professors currently teach that there is no such thing as right and wrong. Rather, they treat the questions of good and evil as relative to "individual values and cultural diversity."
The problem with this, according to Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, is that "they see the world not as it is, but as they want it to be. And annoying questions about moral absolutes and unacceptable behavior are usually left unanswered." Source: http://moral-relativism.com/
You can easily see how and why those pushing the homosexual agenda in America latched onto political correctness, not only as a tool, but as a weapon to make themselves feel better about their own behavior, and to use as a bludgeon to force a society whose moral code and civil law code is based on the morality of the Judeo-Christian faith to accept the homosexual lifestyle as normal.
Today, in America, homosexuality is on display all around us. It cannot be escaped. Even the words "Homosexual Agenda" are said to be a pejorative term used by conservatives. Pejorative, huh? Do you see the use of moral relativism/political correctness at play in these few words.
The homosexual agenda IS an agenda and it is hard at work everywhere in American society -- in our schools, or churches, in the workplace, EVERYWHERE.
The entertainment industry is pushing the homosexual agenda as though it were on steroids. When a new TV show debuts, my wife and I begin openly guessing who the resident homosexual will be among the cast of the program.
Our children are being indoctrinated in school that homosexuality is "normal." Somehow, we've managed to "forget that a man and a woman having sexual relations and producing children, which guarantees the continued exitance of the human species -- IS NORMAL!
The Homosexual Agenda is real. "In 2003 Alan Sears and Craig Osten, president and vice-president of the Alliance Defense Fund, an American conservative Christian organization, offered another characterization:
It is an agenda that they basically set in the late 1980s, in a book called After the Ball, where they laid out a six-point plan for how they could transform the beliefs of ordinary Americans with regard to homosexual behavior — in a decade-long time frame.... They admit it privately, but they will not say that publicly. In their private publications, homosexual activists make it very clear that there is an agenda. The six-point agenda that they laid out in 1989 was explicit:
1. Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible(...)
2. Portray gays as victims, not as aggressive challengers(...)
3. Give homosexual protectors a just cause(...)
4. Make gays look good(...)
5. Make the victimizers look bad(...)
6. Get funds from corporate America(...)"
In a recent article entitled: "Gay Superheroes? Boycott DC Comics!" author Alan Caruba says: "Shame on the rest of us who stand idly by while the President of the United States casually dismisses the ancient and essential element of society—marriage—and the spiritual blessing bestowed on the union of one man and one woman as irrelevant.
According to Wikipedia, “As of April 2011, approximately 3.5% of American adults identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual, while 0.3% are transgender—approximately 11.7 million Americans.” There was a time gays were “in the closet” and being homosexual was best kept private. Now gays parade in the streets, demand their “rights”, and seem to be everywhere in the public culture and media. For a mere 3.5% of the population, they make a lot of noise." Source:
As usual, Caruba is spot-on. Judging from the volume of those pushing the homosexual agenda, you'd think half the population of America is homosexual. But they're not. They're only a tiny percentage of our population using political correctness/moral relativism much the me as a teenager plugs his electric guitar into an electronic amplifier. Without that amplifier, the sounds made by that guitar are barely audible. With it, a single guitar can drown-out all the other instruments in the band.
Once again, a minority is setting the standards for American society. Once again their noise has caused us to lose perspective. Isn't it about time the majority in America reassert itself and reclaim its country and its society?
