Censored (The American Conservative – Why Natural Law Arguments Fail By Rod Dreher): 14 Main Reasons Why Lefties Want Gay Marriage

Censored comment at The American Conservative – Dreher thread (basically the only writer I like at TAC – in any case, the only one I regularly read):

Why Natural Law Arguments Fail By Rod Dreher

Orthodox theologian David Bentley Hart contends that natural law arguments have no traction in public debate today.

Dreher says: What I mean is this: I don’t believe that natural-law arguments against same-sex marriage, however internally coherent and formally valid (and remember, a valid argument is not the same thing as a sound argument), carry any real weight in the world in which we live.

First, the comment the propelled me to write mine:

I find the topic strange. Natural law arguments fail-to do what? Persuade people of something about marriage? This would presume that lefties and other gay marriage supporters were running around seeking to be “persuaded” of something. They are not, but rather trying to impose their vision on the rest of society. There are thousands of little lefties making “arguments” on blogs and websites, true, but these “arguments” are BS and none of these people are actually remotely sincere about them. It doesn’t matter in the slightest whether anything “works” or “makes sense”, but only that it gets us to the goal of gay marriage.

I mean, really, can you imagine any circumstance in which some “argument” is proffered and a whole bunch of lefties suddenly change their minds? Good God, how utterly laughable.

Lefties want gay marriage for two reasons.

1. Gays are to be the new model minority–the “black” thing didn’t work out and “hispanics” are incomprehensible.
2. Maybe if gay people get married, they’ll stop doing some of that weird freaky anonymous sex stuff that they’re known for and settle down to behave like nice SWPLs

So there you have it, notice that at no time there were we concerned with the “nature of marriage” or any such silliness. This is a battle, like everything else in contemporary America, and if you treat it like a parlor room discussion you will always lose. Seriously, how many times do we have to play this game?

===============================

Lefties want gay marriage for two reasons.

1. Gays are to be the new model minority–the “black” thing didn’t work out and “hispanics” are incomprehensible.
2. Maybe if gay people get married, they’ll stop doing some of that weird freaky anonymous sex stuff that they’re known for and settle down to behave like nice SWPLs (even though in every country where homosexual was legalized only 2% of homosexuals got “married” – the rest is obviously too dysfunctional to do so)

3. It gives them an excuse to go into denial about how deformed so many liberals are regarding sexuality – going on a homosexual marriage crusade allows them to continue to be negligent and harmful regarding all the problems they foment: promiscuity, epidemic levels of STDs, perverted sexual attitudes, porn, adultery, interpersonal violence, etc. Liberals can’t go on chest-beating sprees about their attitudes and behaviors regarding anything else, because they are such a failure, so there is “gay marriage” to let them pretend they are actually “good” people, while being deplorable in so many other aspects regarding sexuality. Moreover, focusing on allowing homosexual marriage takes away the spotlight on focusing on why 98% of homosexuals do not want to get married and are incapable of it

4. Liberals like to pretend that homosexuality isn’t a gross parody of heterosexuality

5. Plastering postcards of the “loving” homosexual couple makes them feel good and helps forget just how many homosexuals sexually interact without love, including the sexual harassment and molestation of heterosexuals. It also serves as an image to promote the other cornerstone of their homosexual agenda- that “homosexuals are just like us” – but not because of the fact that if they resolved their underlying psychological problems that cause them to have dysfunctional homosexual dynamics, they would be normal heterosexuals

6. Homosexual marriage also functions as a nice red herring to take attention away from their “homosexuality is normal” fallacy, since it presumes this. Thus instead of people debating how unfounded is the claim that homosexuality is normal, and denying how much it is dysfunctional, people spend time arguing if just the simulacrum of “marriage” should be formally written in legal terms

7. It helps them reinforce the lie that people are born homosexual

8. It allows them hammer away with the claim that having laws against homosexual marriage is *just like* laws against interracial marriage – and their equating of sexuality with color of skin/race, even though their is no rational way these two phenomena can be equated

9. It lets them go on a morality crusade, promoting themselves as progress and *the* authority regarding sexuality in society

10. It lets them call anyone who disagrees a bigot and a hater – and given that name-calling is one of their favorite pass-times in life, this one scores big points on their emotional scale – usually followed by “I’m so glad people like you will soon die off”

11. They use it  to claim that it will have no impact on heterosexual marriage and that no one will be forced to do anything – while lying about all the cases of social conservatives being persecuted for wholesome views of sexuality, which do not normalize homosexuality

12. Lets them pretend that this is an issue of “civil rights” – and not another attempt to feel better about their psycho-sexual dysfunctions, by claiming everything with them is normal

13. It’s a major, major ego-trip – they almost have the illusion they are just like the first liberators that arrived at the German concentration camps during WWII – it’s on that level of Self bloatedness

14. Hey, and last but not least, another chapter in the Victim tale – it’s one of their favorite chapters in their “homosexual as society’s major victim”  narrative – a kind of collective hysteria they greatly enjoy being delusional about
