Up until the 1970s, when I first noticed journalists and intellectuals pushing the incipient gay agenda, it is unlikely that people favored gay marriage any more than they endorsed legalized bestiality. After all, heterosexual unions are not a recent fad but the way hominoids have lived for the last million years. It may also be historically important that the “gay community” and their advocates are browbeating uncooperative businesses, law firms, and political figures. A Bronx Democrat and state senator, Ruben Diaz, says he has received numerous death threats since he publicly stated that he had reservations about voting for gay marriage. A writer for the Advocate, Jonathan Rauch, has warned his gay allies that the time has come to cool down. It may be necessary to “leave room for homophobia” now that his side is winning. Gays, explains Rauch, shouldn’t accommodate their reactionary critics by appearing to be “bullies.” To which one might reply: “Why not?” Bullying tactics have only helped them so far.
It’s awfully rich that gays and their pals have are feverishly campaigning against the latest moral panic — “bullying” — at the precise moment they’ve discovered how effective bullying other people can be.
All these Glee-fuelled anti-bullying campaigns have an awfully bullying tone, don’t you think?
“It becomes harder and harder to believe anything gay marriage proponents claim about their future agenda when every past claim about their next moves has been false (and false from the moment of utterance).
“The claim is being made that ‘Of course we will not impose gay marriage on religious institutions.’
“Um, yeah. Because you’ve been so upfront and candid with me in the past.”
