'It's not my intention to blame gays for murder...except that it TOTALLY IS!'
This, from Robert Peters of the so-called Morality in Media group, gives a whole new meaning to the term "shotgun wedding":
"For many citizens, what has replaced Judeo-Christian faith and values is the secular value system that is reflected in films, rap/music lyrics, and videogames and on TV and now the Internet, where the taking of human life for just about any reason is commonplace and is often portrayed in an appealing manner and in realistic detail. Murder motivated by hatred and revenge is also justified.
"This secular value system is also reflected in the 'sexual revolution,' which is the driving force behind the push for 'gay marriage;' and the Iowa Supreme Court decision is another indication that despite all the damage this revolution has caused to children, adults, family life and society (think abortion, divorce, pornography, rape, sexual abuse of children, sexually transmitted diseases, trafficking in women and children, unwed teen mothers and more), it continues to advance relentlessly.
"It most certainly is not my intention to blame the epidemic of mass murders on the gay rights movement! It is my intention to point out that the success of the sexual revolution is inversely proportional to the decline in morality; and it is the decline of morality (and the faith that so often under girds it) that is the underlying cause of our modern day epidemic of mass murders.

No, he's not directly blaming gays for the murders. Mr. Peters is instead blaming gays for destroying morality through their civil equality, and blaming that lack of morality for America's murder epidemic. That should make us all feel SOOOOOOOOOO much better, right? [::homo writer rolls non-homicidial eyes and shakes non-homocidal head from side to side::]
But that's okay. After all, with views like Mr Peters' coming more and more into prominence, it's only a matter of time before this nation's anti-gays perform mass murder on their own movement's credibility.
"It is my intention to point out that the success of the sexual revolution is inversely proportional to the decline in morality..."
Well it is my intention to point out that "inversely proportional" means that as one goes up, the other goes down. So according to Mr. Peters, as "the success of the sexual revolution" increases, the "decline in morality" decreases. Yes, I do believe Mr. Peters is correct; as we succeed, morality triumphs.

I noticed the exact same thing Lisa. I think he unintentionally got it right!
