What Is the Real Goal?

From the August 2013 Trumpet Print Edition

Many homosexuals don’t want to marry. “For decades, prominent gay-rights activists dismissed the right to marry as a quixotic [impractical], even dangerous, cause and gave no support to the men and women at the grassroots who launched the uphill movement,” reported Time in March 2013. Any “gay pride” parade displays the fact that homosexuals pursue an edgy, rebellious, sexually risky lifestyle. Homosexuals staying together for life is a rarity. Most consider marriage and raising children a burden.

So why the hubbub about marriage within the homosexual community? “If same-sex marriage becomes more widely recognized, same-sex relationships will likely become more widely morally accepted,” writes activist John Corvino. “That’s one reason why advocates seek it and opponents fear it: The legalization of same-sex marriage will help to ‘normalize’ homosexuality” (Debating Same-Sex Marriage). If they’re “married,” homosexuals know their abnormal lifestyle will be accepted as more normal. The cost? Redefining marriage.

The truth is, same-sex “marriage” is a fight to destroy traditional family—actually the biblical definition of family.

In May 2012, author, activist and lesbian Masha Gessen gave an explosive speech at the Sydney Writers Festival revealing what traditional marriage supporters have suspected for years. You can find a video of Gessen’s speech on YouTube. “Gay marriage is a lie,” she said. “Fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there. It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.” Her shocking statement received loud applause.

The fact that Gessen has three children with five parents provides a clue as to why she may be promoting the redefinition of traditional family.

As TheBlaze.com reported, “The push for gay marriage has less to do with the right to marry—it is about diminishing and eventually destroying the institution of marriage and redefining the ‘traditional family.’”
