In today’s fast moving world, it is not uncommon for news items to go out of the global conversation table as soon as they appear. So it is not surprising that the United State’s Supreme Court decision to make gay unions equal to marriage in the whole country is already stale news.
Almost everyone has found something else to babble about. This is the great malaise from which inhabitants of this young century suffer. Thus they cannot realise it when their fates are being determined by a small group of people.
But the fact that it is no longer a hot topic in all circles doesn’t mean it should be a dead topic, and as such, it will be the topic of this article. Because, it is not the end, neither is it the beginning, of the many ‘victories’ that have been accruing to the LGBT agenda for as long as its activists have been waging their well-funded and well-oiled ideological warfare on all the values that humans have held for millennia.
The decision comes at the head of major moments of brilliance in the whole campaign. Ireland is in the bag through a vote, and a number of developed countries are also in the bag. A celebrity former male olympian, now 65, has come out as a 30ish ‘woman’ with with all looks vain women drool over. Large swathes of corporate America have rainbow versions of their logos (This injustice to the rainbow, by the way, is a particularly sore thing). Hollywood is busy churning out movies and series which, as entertaining as always, are dropping innocuous references to the legitimacy of gay unions. And now that the United States, the world’s foremost cultural power, has gay marriage as one of the rights enshrined in its constitution, it would be a disastrous naiveté not to see the next steps.
A certain Randy Berry will soon become very famous. He was recently appointed Special Envoy for LGBT rights at the United States State Department. His job is to make gay OK across the world, at US taxpayers’ expense. He didn’t have legitimacy before the Supreme Court decision. The American constitution wasn’t behind him, which is why his appointment was an executive act, not legislative. Now he has the legitimacy he sorely needs.
His job will be to tell the world, “America, the bastion of democracy and the shrine of human rights, recognises marriage ‘equality.’ Your little banana republic needs to do so too to be on the same level as America and, as well, receive American aid.” And, by the way, the American President, the chief priest of the shrine, whose visit to Kenya starts on July 24th, has confirmed that he will certainly broach the topic in the country.
In the midst of the whole euphoria surrounding the LGBT agenda, it is easy to miss the whole point and to struggle against the symptoms of a much more scary disease — a collective delusion that is steadily encroaching on the minds of many people.
Certainty, or rather, infantile conviction, is being touted as truth. Case in point, a Kenyan lawyer, a certain Eric Gitari, believes, as quoted by the Washington Times, ‘the president should use his Kenyan ‘credentials’ to say that ‘I’m of Kenyan heritage, and I’m OK with [gay rights].’ Notice that his argument is based on pointing at a person’s conviction as a tool to manipulate the whole nation and redefine truth.
He fails to realise that the fact that Obama is OK with gay rights doesn’t mean that ‘gay rights’ are actually rights in the first place. It has been stated on this blog before that gays and lesbians, and every other human who finds it a chore to tow the ‘straight’ line, are still human. As such they share the same rights as the rest of humanity, the same rights granted by nature and protected by states.
However, to tout their errant preferences as rights is to stretch it a bit too far, especially when such preferences are contrary to the same human nature from which rights derive. It is like saying that, since a thief is human being, he has a right to steal, or that since a white person is a human being, he has a right to be black. These are desires that a person might have — to steal or to turn black — but none of these will ever be legitimate even if they are carried out with such skill as a to fool everyone.
Every person has a right to marry whoever they prefer. But preferences shouldn’t act in a vacuum. They ought to be ruled by truth and goodness. And the truth is, just as a person has the right to choose what food he eats but doesn’t go choosing it among furniture, so a man has a right to marry, but can only choose his spouse from members of the opposite sex. To break away from truth and goodness is to have one’s life driven by an illusion.
Kenyans might dread it, but the American President will no doubt speak on gay rights when he’s in the country. The best one can do is to ask him to define those rights, and then provide their basis from human nature. And for all their opposition, Kenyans should find more convincing arguments for their position, as most of the arguments I’ve heard are pretty easy to overturn with well-managed PR, which is, by the way, the LGBT side’s most well-developed skill.
