The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left’s intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of “equality, tolerance and diversity.”
Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America’s “progressive” power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexually anarchist sociopolitical agenda.
And so they have.
In their manuscript, After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the ’90s (1989, Doubleday/Bantam), Harvard-educated marketing experts Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen meticulously laid out the homosexual lobby’s blueprint for success in what is widely regarded as the handbook for the “gay” agenda.
This ambitious project to demolish the America of our founding and raise, in its place, a twisted hybrid of San Francisco’s Castro District and Josef Stalin’s Soviet Union is nearing fruition.
Kirk and Madsen devised an insidious three-pronged approach the homosexual lobby has masterfully implemented in subsequent years: Desensitization, Jamming and Conversion.
They summarized their approach this way:
Portray “gays” as victims, not as aggressive challengers.
Give potential protectors (“allies”) a just cause.
Make “gays” look good.
Make dissenters look bad.
“Desensitization,” wrote Kirk and Madsen, means subjecting the public to a “continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible. If ‘straights’ can’t shut off the shower, they may at least eventually get used to being wet.”
Glamorizing and normalizing aberrant homosexual behavior in our public schools is one approach. Under the guise of “comprehensive sex education,” this tactic has had tremendous success. But public education represents only one mechanism for indoctrination.
With the aid of a willing media and a like-minded Hollywood, societal desensitization has been largely achieved. The film, television and mainstream news industries have been effectively utilized to foster a modern-day fairy tale that creates a dishonest and sympathetic portrayal of a lifestyle that, in truth, is emotionally, spiritually and physically sterile.
Reality is replaced with fantasy. Gone are references to, or images of, the millions of homosexual men wasting away in hospice due to behaviorally related diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis and syphilis. (Unnatural behaviors beget natural consequences. As Romans 6:23 warns, “The wages of sin is death.”)
The homosexual pressure group GLAAD even offers awards to the television networks that most effectively carry the homosexual lobby’s water. The more distorted and positive the portrayal of homosexual conduct, and the more frequently the networks shows such portrayals, the more likely networks are to win GLAAD’s coveted prize.
As Kirk and Madsen put it, homosexuals should be portrayed as the “Everyman.” “In no time,” they said, “a skillful and clever media campaign could have the gay community looking like the veritable fairy godmother to Western Civilization.”
Prophetic words from two very smart men.
“Jamming” refers to the public smearing of Christians, traditionalists or anyone else who opposes the “gay” agenda. “Jam homo-hatred (i.e., recognition of objective sexual morality) by linking it to Nazi horror,” wrote Kirk and Madsen. “Associate all who oppose homosexuality with images of ‘Klansmen demanding that gays be slaughtered,’ ‘hysterical backwoods preachers,’ ‘menacing punks,’ and a ‘tour of Nazi concentration camps.’”
“In any campaign to win over the public, gays must be portrayed as victims in need of protection so that straights will be inclined by reflex to adopt the role of protector. … The purpose of victim imagery is to make straights feel very uncomfortable,” they suggested.
The goal of jamming? To make people feel guilty for criticizing the homosexual agenda, as if they were further oppressing the “victims.” Jamming is psychological manipulation on a mass scale.
And so, words like “homophobia” and “heterosexism” were manufactured from thin air, not because they have substance, but, rather, because they were effective jamming tools. Anyone who holds traditional values relative to human sexuality suddenly became a “homophobe,” a “hatemonger” and a “bigot.” And it’s all a mirage. Kirk and Madsen’s most revealing admission came when they wrote, “[O]ur effect is achieved without reference to facts, logic, or proof.”
Not even churches are safe.
“Gays can undermine the moral authority of homo-hating churches over less fervent adherents by portraying [them] as antiquated backwaters, badly out of step … with the latest findings of psychology. Against the atavistic tug of ‘Old Time Religion’ one must set the mightier pull of science and public opinion. … Such an ‘unholy’ alliance has already worked well in America against the churches, on such topics as divorce and abortion. … [T]hat alliance can work for gays.”
And how it has.
Kirk and Madsen called for “conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media.”
“In the early stages of any campaign to reach straight America, the masses should not be shocked and repelled by premature exposure to homosexual behavior itself. Instead, the imagery of sex should be downplayed and gay rights should be reduced to an abstract social question as much as possible. First let the camel get his nose inside the tent – and only later his unsightly derriere!”
What is it with these guys and derrieres?
Anyway, as Kirk and Madsen both astutely understood and surprisingly admitted, homosexual activism is really a big game of hide the ball. In order to achieve widespread acceptance of “gayness,” they had to remove the focus from what homosexuality actually is (deviant and disordered sexual conduct) and, instead, shift it to the cleverly manufactured specter of “gay rights.”
To cut through much of their propagandist sugarcoating, one need only consider what two men must actually do in order to “consummate” a so-called “gay marriage.” Kirk and Madsen understood this. Most people are naturally repulsed by the mechanics of homosexual conduct, but everyone is for “civil rights.”
So, America, here’s a refresher. Homosexuality 101: The central, defining feature of homosexuality is same-sex sodomy, a filthy practice – both from a moral and biological standpoint – that spreads disease, ruins lives and mocks both God and nature.
That’s so gay.
In short, these sexually confused and spiritually lost souls, particularly males caught-up in this lifestyle, can only “consummate” a counterfeit “gay marriage” through the squalid, unnatural and feculent abuse of both the reproductive and digestive systems.
Is it any wonder why these “gay” jihadists want us to focus on the subjective specter of “gay rights” and ignore the objective reality of “gay” wrongs?
This is why they terrorize anyone who fails to conform.
