After a relatively quiet few months on the same-sex marriage front, activists in both Washington state and New Jersey have expressed a strong desire to push for legalization via their respective legislatures.
In Washington, some leading giants in corporate America have taken sides. Regrettably, Starbucks, Microsoft and Nike have all expressed strong support for what they view as “marriage equality” even though it’s anything but. As I and others have expressed on numerous occasions, same-sex marriage activists are striving to redefine, not equalize, a multi-millennial institution.
Perhaps one of the most startling statements this week comes from an openly homosexual New Jersey Assemblyman named Reed Gusciora. As quoted in Wednesday’s New York Times, Mr. Gusciora acknowledged that when put to the American people, same-sex marriage is a losing proposition.
“It’s a hard dynamic to win at the polls,” he said. “At the end of the day, gays are a minority and they can’t match the crazies, who are out there and really motivated to vote against it.”
According to Mr. Gusciora, tens of millions of Americans are crazy.
We’re crazy because we hold to the same position on marriage that President Obama took during the 2008 campaign.
We’re crazy because we believe in the biblical blueprint of one-man, one-woman marriage.
We’re crazy because we believe that every child deserves to grow up with a mom and a dad.
We’re crazy because we believe in the veracity of the very best available social science on the matter, which currently indicates that children do best on every level when they grow up with their own married mother and father. And by “every level” we’re talking about their health, happiness, education, avoidance of crime, poverty, premarital sex and drugs.
We’re crazy … because we don’t agree with Mr. Gusciora.
Call me crazy. Call me a fool.
Just call me a crazy fool for Christ (1 Corinthians 4:10-13).
