Somebody was telling me about one of those reality TV shows about a homosexual party planner (I have no clue what the name of the show is, and don’t really care). She said that he absolutely refused to do a divorce party*, because he’d been through a divorce and divorce is an awful, horrible thing.
“Interesting,” she said, “That a gay man would be so concerned about the importance of marriage.”
Truthfully, I actually wasn’t surprised. Homosexuals themselves are not the enemy, not in and of themselves. Most of them? They’re the dupes. Tricked into thinking that allowing same-sex “marriage” would be some civil rights victory, when of course that was never the point of the people orchestrating the push.
The point, and I submit that it’s really obvious by now, was to continue the destruction of the family.
But the truth is that the sort of gays who will get married are the people who are going to take the idea more seriously.
So far, the highest number I’ve seen for the number of same-sex marriages in the United States is 500,000 (this was an “estimate” for how high the number of gay marriages could rise to after the legalization of same-sex marriage). Roughly 12,118,200 people in the United States are homosexual as compared to our overall population of 318.9 million according to Gallup. So, at the highest possible estimate, and using numbers from the respected source of Gallup, roughly four percent of the homosexual population is actually married.
Know what percentage of the straight population is married?
I’m not going to do the math for that. The point is, a really, really small percentage of homosexuals are actually married – and this doesn’t count the percentage of “open” gay marriages. And I’m using homosexual-sympathetic data here.
So the homosexuals getting married think that marriage matters, even if only somewhat (even if you’re in an open marriage you need to value SOMETHING about marriage to think that it’s worth it). They’re not really going to be an issue in and of themselves.
Even gay marriage is only a symptom of the larger problem started when no-fault divorce came to the scene.
Homosexuals are pawns. They were the next part of the culture war fighting for a “civil right” most of them never really wanted anyway. They were tricked into thinking it was a grave injustice when in reality it was a simple matter of definitions meant to formalize the family unit.
So I don’t really have a problem with most homosexual folk. In some ways I feel bad for them. The truth is, this whole ruling was bigger for what it represented than what it actually happened. Homosexuals are not the chessplayer. They’re just the pawns moving things forward, and like other pawns they’ll be sacrificed when they’ve reached their limit of usefulness.
