Attack on morality, part 3

As with part 1 and part 2 of “Attack on Morality,” the information presented is taken from “’Sexual Orientation’ and American Culture” by Robert Knight.  It is from a fourteen page article found at which is a website sponsored by “Concerned Women for America” at

“Although homosexual pressure groups contend that they are only seeking tolerance, many ‘gay’ writers (and their critics) acknowledge that their gains are already having a radical effect on society.”

“As homosexuality becomes more accepted, so too is the trend toward homosexuals acquiring children through adoption.  Although many experts quoted in the media continue to repeat the idea that: ‘Children with two parents of the same gender are as well adjusted as children with one of each kind,’ there is no solid science to back this view.  In a look at 49 studies about children in homosexual households, Robert Lerner, Ph.D. and Althea Nagai, Ph.D. found that all had fatal flaws, such as tiny sample size, skewed selection of subjects, and built-in biases of the researchers.  A study in the April 2000 edition of American Sociological Review by pro-homosexual researchers also refutes the idea that research proves that children are unaffected by living in ‘gay’ households.” (my underline)  [Rationally, that view is also nonsense.  If homosexuality is evil as stated in the Bible, if marriage is to be between only a man and a woman as declared in the Bible; then, it would be apparent that two homosexuals raising children contrary to GOD’S WILL would not produce a positive result, in general.  “Two wrongs do not make a right!”  Ultimately, disobeying GOD will not result in good!!!]  

“Cultural analyst Patrick Fagan notes that the homosexual push for acceptance became possible only because marriage itself had already fallen into a sorry state.  ‘Most of heterosexual America is now very close in its attitudes about sexuality to the heart of the homosexual affective disorder: the inversion into the self.  These attitudes have created for children a culture of rejection that is incapable of providing the antidote to the demands of the homosexual movement.’ (my underline)

In summary, the growing acceptance of homosexuality cannot help but to undermine societal support for marriage and family.  Christopher Wolfe, professor of political science at Marquette University, puts it this way:

‘The most significant harm of legitimizing active homosexuality—the way it would harm the family the most—would be the educative impact on the formation of people’s ideas regarding the nature and purpose of sex, marriage and family.  Most important, the legitimization of active homosexuality would be the most straightforward and comprehensive attempt to separate the essential connection between sex and children that society has ever proclaimed.  In so doing, society would be undermining one of its most fundamental institutions, marriage.’”  (It’s the philosophy that anything goes, everything should be for me, I am the most important concept in a world that does not accept absolute truth.—my addition)

“Corporations that accord nonmarital relationships the same status and benefits of marriage are helping to undermine society’s ability to produce productive, honest, hard-working employees.  What might appear to be a concession to a relatively few employees actually constitutes a frontal attack on the institutions of marriage and family.  Not only is the incentive to marry reduced, but the temptation to attain marital benefits outside of wedlock reinforces extramarital sex, with all its consequent problems of out-of-wedlock pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, and risk of domestic abuse.  Domestic partner policies also send an indelible, socially dangerous message to young people: Marriage is no longer important.”  (It also encourages the murder of unborn babies.  Since self is elevated to the pinnacle of importance, any inconveniently conceived child can rationally be removed by an operation or a pill.—my addition)

“Marriage-based family life is the organizational principle behind all civilized cultures.  Marriage brings the sexes together in a unique legal, social, economic and spiritual union.  Because it is indispensable, societies have accorded it various protections and privileges not granted to other types of relationships.  No other relationship transforms young men and women into more productive, less selfish and more mature husbands and wives, and fathers and mothers.  No other relationship affords children the best economic, emotional and psychological environment.” (my underline)  [I would qualify these comments by saying that being a Christian is more important.  However, being a Christian also deepens the understanding of the importance of marriage.  The intended GODLY relationship of a man and a woman in marriage is used in the Bible as a means to illustrate the intended GODLY relationship between CHRIST and the church.  Not knowing the GODLY relationship intended in marriage makes it more difficult to understand the GODLY relationship intended between CHRIST and the church.  GOD never intended “throw away marriages”—and the two shall become one.—my addition]

“The acceptance of ‘sexual orientation’ as a civil right is having profound effects on businesses and on American society as a whole.  As the drive for acceptance of homosexuality increases, societal support for marriage and family decreases, with predictable negative consequences.  One of them is a loss of freedom for people who believe in traditional morality.  Another is a loss of stability in communities, with a rise in crime, sexually transmitted diseases and other social pathologies.  Still another is a shortage of employable, stable people.  (Don’t let the media’s lack of exposure to the problems of homosexual activities mislead anyone.  Homosexual unions are not more idyllic than marriage between heterosexual couples.  In general, homosexual relationships are less stable and also fraught with more problems than traditional marriage.-my addition)

The stakes are very high: Absent a marriage-based culture, can America continue to function as a self-governing republic?  History indicates that the chances are slim.

America’s best hope is to reverse the trend away from traditional morality and to bolster the institutions of marriage and family, the surest producer of stable, productive citizens.”  (America’s best hope, ultimately America’s only hope, is to turn to the ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD in obedience to HIS will which includes GOD given morality and marriage between one man and one woman.—my addition)

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows.  The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.  Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6: 7-9)
