The Betrayal of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act!

April 4, 2015

This is an open letter to America’s religious leaders and all who publically describe themselves as defenders of the family and traditional morality, especially Republican politicians. I'm calling you out for moral cowardice, abject dishonesty and a betrayal of public trust.

Homosexuals have successfully convinced large segments of the population that the homosexual impulse is no different than the attraction between men and women and that opposition stems from an ignorant bigotry akin to racism. They were able to achieve this because your opposition has ranged from feeble to non-existent.

The tiny minority of the population that identifies itself as "homosexual" (approximately 2%) is concentrated in the mass media and the arts, a positioning that fostered development of a carefully-designed propaganda campaign. The public's growing identification with and sympathy for the so-called "gay rights" movement stems directly from that campaign which has gone essentially unchallenged for more than four decades.

The campaign's architects successfully deflected the public's attention away from the reality of homosexual behavior and created a totally false image of minority persecution using the black civil rights movement as a template. Psychologically-loaded new words were inserted into the debate ("homophobia") while old words were successfully "hijacked" and assigned new meanings ("gay", "love", "partner", etc.).  Consider, for example, the propaganda value of the made-up word, "homophobia". A genuine phobia is an overwhelming and unreasonable fear of an object or situation that poses little real danger but provokes anxiety and avoidance. Drumming the made-up word "homophobia" into the public consciousness enabled the homosexual lobby to paint its opponents as ignorant out-of-step bigots and Fred Phelps probably did more to advance that image than anyone in the "gay rights" movement. In reality, the reaction provoked among normal people who understand what homosexuals actually do to satisfy the compulsions of their disorder isn't fear but disgust and concern for the very real and potentially lethal threat that homosexual behavior poses to public health.
What homosexual men do to one another as they act out their disorder stands in sharp contrast with the media-created image of a persecuted minority engaging in harmless and perfectly "normal" private behavior. I have not further described those actions in this post because they are so vile that many will be offended by the words required to depict them. However, I have included links to web dictionary pages with definitions of the practices listed just below but readers are strongly cautioned that the content of those dictionary pages is explicit. 
These behaviors, in all of their unsanitary destructive ugliness, are the reality of homosexuality.
In 1973, against the advice of experts in the treatment of homosexuals, the American Psychological Association (APA) board sent a letter to its members asking them to vote to remove homosexuality from the catalogue of disorders. The letter, written and funded by a lobbying group called the National Gay Task Force, was not based on any new medical or scientific information. The vote was a political act directed against "bourgeois morality" instigated by a thoroughly radicalized APA board under the control of Marxists.

The APA ignored its own definitions and diagnostic criteria in voting to “normalize” homosexuality.  Before 1973, mental health professionals treated homosexuality as a paraphilia, a deviant sexual behavior. A paraphilia is defined by the APA as “Any of a group of psychosexual disorders characterized by sexual fantasies, feelings, or activities involving a nonhuman object, a non-consenting partner such as a child, or pain or humiliation of oneself or one's partner.” Sexual addiction is defined as “A condition in which some form of sexual behavior is employed in a pattern that is characterized by two key features: 1) recurrent failure to control the sexual behavior, and 2) continuation of the sexual behavior despite significant harmful consequences.”  Homosexuality meets all criteria provided by these definitions as do other paraphilia including pedophilia (sex with children), necrophilia (sex with dead bodies) and bestiality (sex with animals). Thanks to the success of the homosexual lobby, it won't be long before campaigns to normalize other paraphilia become more visible. The "North American Man/Boy Love Association" web site suggests that pedophilia will be at the top of the list.

The current campaign against "The Religious Freedom Restoration Act" demonstrates once again that the Gods of Political Correctness, aided and abetted by the cowardice and ignorance of religious and political "leaders", are smiling on the homosexual lobby. The usual suspects are busily scurrying about to gain legitimacy for “gay marriage” whether through legislation or judicial fiat. Large employers, including city and state governments, are granting full employee benefits to "domestic partners", including health insurance. Alas, actuarial tables have a way of being unforgiving. No amount of propaganda can change the fact that the average life expectancy of homosexual males is about 45 years. That is largely because, according to published data in refereed journals, between one-quarter and one-third of active male homosexuals report sexual encounters with 200 or  more anonymous "partners" per year. This “recurrent failure to control sexual behavior” often leads to death from AIDS (surely a “significant harmful consequence”) and an incredibly high rate of other STDs. Even those homosexuals who claim to be in so-called “committed relationships” are not necessarily in monogamous relationships. Many of them simply have a “favorite” primary partner.

Had news organizations only reported facts instead of propaganda designed to mislead, an informed public debate might have developed on this topic. As it is, in only a few short years the health care cost of this mindless pandering is going to be very high for insurers, other employees, and taxpayers. If there is any justice, there will be a political price as well for the politicians and corporate leaders who have taken us down this road.
