Serious bad-semantics mis-reporting is pandemic on the network televised news, and it occurs when the subject of homosexual same-gender "marriage" is alluded to.
The wrong words used pertain to stating that homoperverts have a "right" to be homogay or homosodomite, and are legally free to "marry" in either "civil" unions or same-sex "marriage."
There is NEVER any "right" to say nor do anything obscene or criminal - and particularly sinful ideology, speech, or action - but rather merely a capacity to commit (and not "perform") such deviant antisocial aberrations.
Proof of such assertion is found in the following Biblical passages:
Le 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
Le 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.
Ro 1:26 For this cause God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
Ro 1:27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
1Co 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites,
1Co 6:10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.
During the WWII antisemitic holocaust in Nazi Germany near the middle of the 20th century, Adolf Hitler was aware of what was useful to for his rise to power, his maintaining power, efficiency of his Wehrmacht troops, and how to get the will of sensible, church-going German people. The phenomenon of homosexuals to him was like a disease and bodily defect which not only was abhorrent to the Fuehrer himself and his Gestapo allies, but quite counterproductive pertaining to the aggressive Nazi war objectives. Even German orthodox Jews themselves were repulsed by homosexuals who violated Torah and Pentateuch laws of the Old Testament, and both German Evangelicals and Catholics of their respective German church organizations found no place in their religion for the imposition and intrusion of "rights"-demanding homoperverts defiling the fatherland. Thus, Hitler correctly labeled homosexuals with pink triangles and confined them in concentration camps. Even the homosexual Brownshirt thugs who helped Hitler get mastery over the Communist Party in Germany Adolf suddenly and thankfully imprisoned and executed on his way to the Reichstag.
As to what is natural and common-sense, the Creator has established not same-gender erotic connection as normal, but instead heterosexual coupling for legitimate and true loving affection. Consider magnetized metal, for example. There is both a North and a South pole, and two pieces of magnetized metal attract North-to-South or South-to-North.....never North-to-North nor South-to-South. If one tries to connect or combine the same poles to each other, there is relentless repulsion, and such attempts are always a futile waste of time. Also, there is in electrical components (such as batteries, transistors, etc.) a positive (+) and a negative (-). When wires to such are connected, there is a completed circuit for powering and energizing all sorts of devices, and a useful electrical connection. When there is both positive or both negative, there is no connection.
Those analogies apply to sexuality and reproduction. Never in the entire history of humanity has ever occurred two males birthing a child themselves by themselves. Nor even two women birthing a child themselves by themselves. Such progenie reproduction requires a man and a woman, or woman and man. Thus, the attempt to legitimatize same-gender "marriage" or same-sex "civil" unions is not simply non-natural but is clearly non-workable.
Perhaps it would not be so bad if a couple of homosexual cruds who are worthless to society were exiled to some remote island, on which they could screw each other by mouth and rectum into well-deserved cancer-like AIDS and death. They would only be harming themselves, and no one else directly. But as is the case with all genocidal terrorism, the victims are others who are innocent of the far-reaching criminal and wicked pollutions and deviations of murderous, lurid, filthy perpetrators.
When homogays and homosodomites demand legal rulings from courts to impose pseudo-certification of same-sex marriage in open society, they are in effect attacking heterosexuals and forcing heterosexuals (by threat of law-enforced/court-enforced arrest, fines, lawsuits, and imprisonment) to admit to (under legal duress) the acceptability and moral equality of homosexual connections and unions. It is as if they get the legislatures and courts to have police officers hold guns to the heads of the heterosexuals while forcing them to acknowledge that homosexuality and homosexual unions are OK....or else be shot to death on the spot. One therefore can readily see that it is not simply a "privacy" issue, when law-and-court-enforced public policy is involved. Not only is forced homosexual public policy a flagrant affront against accomodating-to-Nature heterosexuals, but non-tolerable defiance against the clear and plain prohibitions of Scriptural directives as cited above, which Biblical directives are the basis for United States statutes from the inception of the country.
An extensive analysis of public-health issues relating to [needless and senseless] imposition of homosexuality by homosexuals should also be done, elaborating on the devastating ramifications of disease-causing homosexuality with disasterous consequences even against those not directly interfacing with homoperverts. It even gets to be a national security concern.
The support of anti-homosexual-"marriage" Proposition 8 of California must be encouraged, while the demented and destructive tyranny of homosexual promoters and tolerators must be eradicated and eliminated with righteously-judgmental discrimination and discretion, in spite of a horde of arrogant activist perverts who defiantly object to sensual rationality and common decency.
