There has been a lot of talk on the blogs lately about Gay issues. Hell, just look back over the last 2 weeks of my postings and you will see how it’s even effected me.
So just for the record, I want to take another stab at this issue, and then I promise to move on to other subjects. This one riles me up so much because it’s a big issue if you still believe in morality.
M-o-r-a-l-i-t-y, remember what that is? Here’s a few reminders…
Morality is concern with the distinction between good and evil or right and wrong; right or good conduct; ethical motive: motivation based on ideas of right and wrong
Morality (from the Latin moralitas “manner, character, proper behavior”) is a system of conduct and ethics that is virtuous. It can also be used in regard to sexual matters and chastity. …
moral – concerned with principles of right and wrong or conforming to standards of behavior and character based on those principles; “moral sense”; “a moral scrutiny”; “a moral lesson”; “a moral quandary”; “moral convictions”; “a moral life”
Lately there have been quite a few gay issues getting ink on other blogs and with the comments always end up the same predictable way. The pro-gay side will use any argument to try to bolster their position except for one… the morality part of the equation. Once in a while someone will try to use the moral argument, but always goes down in flames, so it’s not used very often as a tactic for the pro-gay crowd. They don’t use it because they know it’s the one argument that won’t hold water.
I wanted to briefly write about this tonight mostly due to an article I read a few hours ago about how a gay conservative group had been invited to this years CPAC convention. Some of the regular attendees heard about this and politely backed out from attending this year. The Family Research Council is just one of those opting out, and I want to publicly say that I appreciate them for their move.
Of course this leads back to politics, like everything eventually does, but the politics of an issue like this could put Conservative-politics in a very tricky place. Here’s why… If the GOP decides to throw open the doors and welcome the gay agenda, then the GOP will never get another vote from me (and a few million just like me). That then leaves me with finding another party that I feel has a reasonable chance of winning. As I write this there are only two parties that get elected in this country, the Democrats and Republicans. They control the money and the power. The good news is that a viable 3rd party may be about to make a major move. I welcome the formation of the Tea-Party as an honest and logical choice for people like me that can no longer side with the GOP because the GOP has lost it’s heart when it comes to Conservative issues. However, if the Tea-Party decides to be another Conservative-Lite Party then we Conservatives are in BIG trouble. Hell, the whole country will be in BIG trouble.
Here comes the part I hate… what the hell do we do? I refuse to put aside my morals when it comes to the gay agenda and the abortion agenda, and at one time I thought the GOP agreed and sided with me. Now it seems that it no longer cares about standing up for whats right and simply wants to placate real Conservatives simply for our money and our votes.
So do we go with a new, more Conservative party, knowing that it will mean that the Dems re-gain control for at least another 10 years while this new party can grow big enough to challenge the Dems. Or do we suck-it up and continue with voting for those that only agree with some of our ideals?
I can only speak for me, but I cannot just throw away my Morals like an old worn-out pair of shoes. Morality is what seperates us humans from animals.
God help us!
