Here are a couple of terrific thoughts from Elizabeth:
How should we view homosexuality? It should be treated as a naturally occurring defect, much like deafness or diabetes or asthma. We don’t blame people for these conditions or persecute them, but we don’t treat them like heroes, either. City governments do not vote money for asthma pride day. It is strange and unhealthy to celebrate defects as if they were accomplishments.
The idea of homosexual marriage rewrites the idea of marriage. Societies give benefits to married couples because they are the people who bring the next generation into the world. We value marriage not because married people copulate—though of course they do—but because they produce children. Same-sex marriage ignores the whole question of children and defines marriage as nothing more than copulation. By that standard, if an animal fetishist keeps a mule, he should be able to declare a civil union, enroll the mule in the corporate health plan, and have the company pay the vet bills.
By the way. When I contacted this site to see if I could reprint this article, I was told the price was $250.00. So, Nik — and you other fine contributors here who have joined me in voluntarily trying to turn back the tide of the Left — you can start calculating what I owe you. I’ll keep a running tally. And if I ever hit the lottery, I’ll pay you back. 😉
