A Celebration of Modest Shame for Gay Marriage



I do not understand how an adult could vote for same sex marriage.  I know that he feels that he is being liberal, generous and accepting of his fellow man.


But is his self-satisfaction a reason to create an amorphous society and confuse the value system that his or her children will have to grow up with?   


The liberal values of adults undermine the family structure and encourage their children to be lost in the confusion of heterosexual versus homosexual sex.


Same sex marriage should not be a relaxed choice that our children can grow up into cavalierly.  It should be a monumental choice that weakens the history of mankind and goes against the grain of the very real value of heterosexual marriage which has been the bedrock of civilization.


I know that my  opinion will hurt my gay friends and I feel bad about that.  But truth will out.  Would they rather listen to the lies of liberals who pretend that they accept gay marriage but speak against it behind their backs.  We are not talking about a simple value here.  We are discussing something that can change civilization and mess with the omnipresent heterosexual drive. We are speaking about sexual confusion being made more accessible to children.


Gay parents adopting children puts fissures in the family  structure.  Who knows how these children will be treated when they  are adopted?  Their parents have already taken a major leap of logic and historical consistency by becoming the one per cent of the population that is gay.


Parents have the obligation to abandon their liberal permissiveness regardless of how they hurt gay  feelings.  Their priority is to protect their children from omnipresent homosexuality and gay families. 


The adult gays can protect themselves.  The children can’t. It our responsibility to not abandon our children to minimal thinking, stupid, overly open-minded progressives.


I never understood why gays are proud.  I am ashamed of certain things I have done throughout my life.  If gays weren’t ashamed to admit to shame then they might be more humble and less authoritarian about promoting their lifestyles.


Gay  pride is a threat to civilizational structure.  It weakens the corrective power of modest shame.


Ireland has just voted for same sex marriage.  It’s people pat themselves on the back for being generous to their gay neighbors. 


The Irish have always been good boxers.  Why don’t they punch themselves in the faces for betraying their children and their culture?  I did when I was a teenager and was caught cutting school. If we can’t accept shame we will never outgrow it.


It’s a shame to see a country that produced geniuses like James Joyce and William Butler Yeats now producing politically correct sycophants who promote gay marriage.
