Signs of the Times

This site is kind of a scary read. Let me pull a few things from it for you.

In offering this vision, we declare ourselves to be part of an
interdependent, global community. We stand with people of
every racial, gender
and sexual identity, in the United States and
throughout the world, who are
working day-to-day – often in harsh political
and economic circumstances – to
resist the structural violence of poverty,
racism, misogyny, war, and
repression, and to build an unshakeable
foundation of social and economic
justice for all, from which authentic
peace
and recognition of global human
rights can at long last
emerge.

Sounds great, right? I mean who doesn't want justice for all and world peace? Too bad the peace and justice this site calls for is based upon false beliefs and the idea that there are no absolute wrongs (aside from conservative christianity).


For example, who among us seriously will argue that the following kinds of
households are less socially, economically, and spiritually worthy?

  • Senior citizens living together, serving as each other’s caregivers,
    partners, and/or constructed families
  • Adult children living with and caring for their parents
  • Grandparents and other family members raising their children’s (and/or a
    relative’s) children
  • Committed, loving households in which there is more than one conjugal
    partner
  • Blended families
  • Single parent households
  • Extended families (especially in particular immigrant populations) living
    under one roof, whose members care for one another
  • Queer couples who decide to jointly create and raise a child with another
    queer person or couple, in two households
  • Close friends and siblings who live together in long-term, committed,
    non-conjugal relationships, serving as each other’s primary support and
    caregivers
  • Care-giving and partnership relationships that have been developed to
    provide support systems to those living with HIV/AIDS

Marriage is not the only worthy form of family or relationship, and
it should not be legally and economically privileged above all others. While we
honor those for whom marriage is the most meaningful personal ­– for some,
also a deeply spiritual
– choice, we believe that many other kinds of
kinship relationship, households, and families must also be accorded
recognition.

I will argue, on the basis of Scripture, that about half of those entities DO NOT qualify as families. Nice trick though, trying to confuse homosexality, bi-sexuality and "swinging" with good, wholesome family values and ideals.

I realize this group is *supposedly* trying to make insurance available to more people, but I believe that's just a side tactic they are using to force *us* into accepting deviant lifestyles as normal and wholesome. I mean, we wouldn't want to deny the single mom insurance would we?

OF COURSE NOT! And I don't think she can be denied insurance, but she surely is listed right up there with the homosexuals and swingers who can't get insurance.

Do they think we are stoooopid? Don't answer that.

The Right’s anti-LGBT position is only a small part of a much broader
conservative agenda of coercive, patriarchal marriage promotion
that plays out
in any number of civic arenas in a variety of ways ­ – all of which
disproportionately impact poor, immigrant, and people-of-color
communities. The purpose is not only to enforce narrow, heterosexist
definitions of marriage and coerce conformity, but also to slash to the bone
governmental funding for a wide array of family programs, including childcare,
healthcare and reproductive services, and nutrition, and transfer
responsibility for financial survival to families themselves

Yep, that's right. The Right seriously wants to harm people. Get real. I am willing to bet that just as many conservatives give charitably as do liberals. And what's that last line... we want to transfer financial responsibility to families. OH! The Horror!

Maybe we want to do that because our govt. fouls up every social program it touches. Maybe we want to do that because we really want to empower people... not strip them down to nothing where they have no choice BUT to lean on the govt. (and thus be forever indebted to whatever the govt. says).

Finally... they say:

We believe LGBT movement strategies must not only democratize recognition and
benefits but also speak to the widespread hunger for authentic and just
community.

Did you catch that second-to-last word, "just." Yeah, right. I am sure that the number of sins listed above should be treated JUSTLY by being awarded insurance and other benefits that are paid for by those of us who are trying to live "just" lives. I bet that's EXACTLY what God thinks.

Yeah, this was a huge rant. I am tired of being labeled as hateful because i believe in right and wrong. I am tired of the left trying to deceive good people by using slick language and feel-good ushy-gushy emotions. It's high time we conservatives started using our brains and thinking about what we vote for and about who is trying to pass legislation. Then, we must vote accordingly.
