I. Reuters reports on the growing acceptance of, and indifference to, homosexual “marriage” on the part of those who call themselves political conservatives. Of note in the report is the purported change of major proportions in the Mormon view of Homosexuality. Due to the large number of Mormon-sponsored BSA troops, this could bode ill for the Boy Scouts’ continued resistance to allowing homosexual members and adult volunteers in the Scouts. Some may deem this trivial. We do not. The partisans of the homosexual agenda will try to take out any and all resistance, especially among discipline institutions associated with masculinity. And if they can “queer” the Scouts, they have won a major victory for their malevolent cause.
This, by the way, proves the point recently made by Selwyn Duke concerning the fluidity and inadequacy of the terms conservative and liberal. One day, perhaps, the new “conservative” water mark will see the political right staunchly protecting marriage as the union of two consenting humans — and that against the liberal progressivist push for state recognition of inter-species marriage.
II. From Yahoo News, we learn of two Supreme Court cases, which begin this week, concerning pseudomarriage:
The Supreme Court will hear arguments this week in two cases that have the potential to transform American society and the status of gays and lesbians in it.
In oral arguments on Tuesday morning the 9 justices will consider whether California’s voter approved ban on gay marriage, Proposition 8, unfairly discriminates against gay people. On Wednesday, they’ll consider whether the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act barring the U.S. government from recognizing same-sex marriages, even in states that allow them, constitutes federal overreach.
Both cases could change the everyday lives of gay people and transform the larger, decades old gay rights movement, which has pursued both a court-based and political strategy to gain more legal protections for gay people. But the California Prop 8 case in particular, called Perry v. Hollingsworth, is considered by both pro and anti-gay marriage camps to be the most important, and potentially sweeping, of the two.
In that article, we also learn that “Justice Anthony Kennedy, the current court’s conservative-leaning swing vote” may favor the diabolical simulacrum of holy matrimony.
III. Meanwhile, in France, the resistance to the agenda is growing.
Polls indicate a shrinking majority of French voters back gay marriage, which is legal in about a dozen mostly European nations and some U.S. states. But polls show French voters are less enthusiastic about adoption by same-sex couples.
