Last thursday I invited Ed Vitagliano of the AFA Journal to talk about his article that he’d written in the latest Journal about polygamy. Ed and I got into a discussion about the logic of the same sex marriage agenda and what the full effect of those arguments would be on other sexual and marriage issues such as polygamy and polyamorism. I made a simple statement about something I’d seen on a reality TV show. That statement has set off a firestorm of angry, name calling vitriol from the left and it’s supporters of same sex marriage. Let’s play that clip so you can hear the exchange between our resident Italian and myself. And then afterwards, I want to address some of the comments that have been published about my remarks.
Ok, now that you’ve heard it, let me restate and clarify what I DID actually say. I have been sliced and diced by the homosexuals for saying something I didn’t say. I DID NOT SAY that I assumed the acceptance of same sex marriage could POSSIBLY open the door to all manner of weirdness like “taboo loves”. I did NOT say that it was MY opinion that the door would be flung open wide for polygamist and taboo lovers. What I DID do, was simply report that THEY ARE ALREADY SAYING THESE THINGS! Those who are polygamist and taboo lovers are already saying that they want to marry their loves. They are already using the logic AND the legal arguments that same sex proponents are using to argue that they should have the right to marry whom or whatever they desire. Let me be clear, for Right Wing Watch and others who are taping this show even as I speak: I DON’T “BELIEVE” PEOPLE WILL USE THE GAY AGENDA’S ARGUMENTS TO JUSTIFY MARRYING THEIR MULTIPLE LOVES OR THEIR TABOO LOVES. THEY ALREADY
A R E USING YOUR ARGUMENTS! I SIMPLY REPORTED SUCH ON LAST THURSDAY’S BROADCAST!
It’s simply amazing! I’ve had no less than 10 different pro-homosexual blogs and websites attack me for, in their estimation, having said that if we allow gay marriage people will be marrying buildings and cars. AGAIN, I didn’t say that MY logic and opinion was such. I said THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE SAYING IT.
A little side note here; AFA has been called a “certified hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. We’re in good company. They designated FRC and Focus on the Family as hate groups as well! Now as far as I know, we’ve NEVER taken the names or works of any of these guys connected with whom I’m talking about and called them filty names. But they have called me and this ministry names that I cannot mention here. I don’t use language like they’ve used and this radio network is dedicated to the glory of God, so, I chose NOT to speak as they have spoken. AND YET, WE ARE THE HATERS! We are called a certified hate group, as if there were some test we could take down at the DMW and get a license to officially hate people! We are the ones called intolerant! And yet, they are the name callers, they are the most hateful, hate filled writers at least, that you’ll ever know. It’s absolutely amazing.
Back to the people marrying cars and buildings.
That’s what they have all flipped out about. That’s why my simple comments last thursday have gone viral. But the context of what I said last Thursday WAS to simply agree with Ed Vitagliano! He siad that the logic assumed by the homosexual activists would be used by polygamists and taboo lovers. In fairness to him, his article wasn’t about that, but the tense of his piece fairly led to the discussion that ensued. The fact is, I KNOW that those kinds of people in our society ARE already using the logic of the same sex marriage proponents. I’d heard them do so with my own ears. That’s why I brought up the reality TV series that showed taboo lovers. There was one woman who had a passionate love for a building. She was in love with a building! Now, you and I can appreciate great architecture. But this woman perceived of this building as her lover. (I know, this is a horrible subject and I wish I could be talking about something else. But thanks to the morally sick and sin sick culture we live in, it’s incumbent upon us to respond. That’s what we’re called to do.) Anyway, she loved this building AS she would love a husband and spoke of wanting to marry her love! The other example was the man who was in love with his Volkswagen Beetle – a car! He spoke of how much he loved his car and how, after washing and waxing her, he wanted to, well, he wanted to marry the car. In both stories, with both objects of taboo love, the subjects in each story were shown kissing their loves, the building and the car, and hugging them and talking about how desperately they wanted to marry their loves.
My point in sharing all of this is to PROVE the simple reality of what I said on last Thursday’s broadcast: THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY USING THE ARGUMENTS OF THE PROGAY ACTIVISTS TO ALSO OPEN THE DOOR TO OTHER ABBERANT SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS, like MARRYING A BUILDING OR A CAR. They have called me all manner of names and said that I was absolutely crazy for thinking such an odd thing. Let me be clear one more time (because, apparently it takes several times for RWW and others to simply get it!) I WAS SIMPLY REPORTING WHAT OTHERS ARE ALREADY SAYING these things! Thus, for me to say that approving gay marriage could open the door to other aberrant options for marriage, does NOT make me crazy…..it makes me FACTUALLY TRUE!
Now, beyond that, they’ve thrown out the illogicalness of what I said. I’ve had great lectures about marriage being a contract between two consenting individuals, and since a building or a car cannot consent, then what I was speaking of could never happen. What a buffoon I am, didn’t I know that? Doesn’t matter. You heard me, be sure to get this on your blog. It doesn’t matter how you argue away the concept. PEOPLE ARE STILL USING THE PRO-GAY MARRIAGE ARGUMENTS TO ARGUE FOR MARRING WHOEVER AND WHATEVER. That’s the truth. Or, as Paul Harvey used to say, and That’s the rest of the of the story!
I will confess though, it’s quite flattering to know that what we say here from this ministry is considered so dangerous by those who reject the wisdom of God’s Word. I wish all of you would go to knowhim.afr.net and learn of the One we celebrate at Christmas. But I warn you, You could fall in love with the precious son of God, and that would rock your world far more than anything I could say.
