So you see, Maine gays, you lost last November because you are 'moral trash'

by Jeremy Hooper

And speaking of ridiculous "slippery slope" arguments: This charming piece comes from the Christian Civic League of Maine/Maine Family Policy Council. Penned by a reverend, no less:

The logical pathway of this insanity naturally leads to the legal marriage between a human and an animal… Love is blind, isn't it? What will we do if somebody falls in love with his cat or horse? To avoid the sin of adultery, we will advise the lovers to marry! "And now, I pronounce you husband and whatever… "Romeo and Juliet the Kitty Cat…"

It is one thing if homosexuals want to live quietly in their homes and their private clubs; after all, it is a free country. But the homosexual activists want to force their will on us, influence our families by redefining the blessed institution of marriage for the rest of us, fool the educators and the kids in our schools with the slogan: "it is everybody’s business".

In the "National Review Online" no.127/2004 Dr. Maggie Gallagher notes: "Marriage is not an option, it is a precondition for social survival. . . Winning the gay-marriage debate may be hard, but to those of us who witnessed the fall of Communism, despair is inexcusable and irresponsible. We need to do something".

What can we do?

Preachers can boldly proclaim biblical truth when it comes to sexual perversion and God's plan for marriage. Believers can influence their circle of friends and relatives, by writing, speaking and standing up. We can influence our legislators to pass a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage between one woman and one man. It is not an obsession of conservative evangelical churches; but, it is a life and death issue for this country, for this generation, for this world. It is a battle for life. It’s a battle for keeping this great country as we like it to be: free from moral trash.

Wait, we're not even moral recycling or moral compost? Just plain old trash? Way harsh.
