PREVENT THE SCOURGE OF GAY MARRIAGE

Steve Howard

            With the Supreme Court currently considering two cases concerning gay marriage, we at the Specious Research Council feel it imperative that we make the facts clear. There is a great deal of pressure to legitimize these “marriages”, but the real truth must be known: this is a threat to civilization itself.

The purpose of marriage is to bear and bring up children. We must not let liberal conceits such as adult love or satisfaction interfere with this. The true sign of a successful society is traditional heterosexual marriage, and tradition must not be tampered with. I certainly don’t want my heterosexual marriage to suffer the threat posed by those two ladies living in sin down the street. That is why I will not even speak to them. What’s a civilized person to do?

We have seen that heterosexual marriage has been an unqualified success. Our studies show no evidence of misery, no adultery, no domestic violence or divorce. Why would we want to change a system that is already working perfectly?

If we are going to conceive and raise children, then as distasteful as we might find it, we must have sex. It’s our duty. God and nature have defined sex as putting a penis in a vagina. In all our studies, we have not turned up a single case of penis-in-vagina in a gay or lesbian couple. It’s just unnatural.

The danger is further recognized in Scripture. Leviticus (20:13) demands that “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, the two of them shall be put to death.” That seems unambiguous, and we merely need to decide on the method of execution. In the interest of completeness we should note that the same passage decrees death for sexual relationships with an animal or insulting one’s father or mother, and it also tells us that it is “an abhorrent thing” for a woman to wear the clothing of a man. All you ladies wearing slacks or jeans must turn yourselves in.

The subsequent verse prescribes stoning to death for an unmarried woman who has sex with a man. That’s the law, but we’re still trying to figure out where we can get all the stones.

In the Gospels Jesus is curiously quiet on the subject of homosexuality, probably intimidated by all those Hebrew queers. But Paul says (I Corinthians 6:9-10) “Surely you know that the unjust will never come into possession of the Kingdom of God… no fornicator or idolater, none who are guilty either of adultery or of homosexual perversion, no thieves or drunkards or slanderers or swindlers, will possess the kingdom of God.” Surely none of us righteous persons has ever risked his salvation by fornicating, stealing, committing adultery, getting drunk or gossiping irresponsibly.

So the case is self-evident. We must all write letters to the Supreme Court demanding that they stop this perversion. If that doesn’t work, we must stone them.
