Meme's of the so-called "Culture Wars"

The National Organization for Straight Marriage has released an ever-so-helpful guide to using politically correct talking points. But the cognitive dissonance is strong in this one.....


Extensive and repeated polling agrees that the single most effective message is the following:

“Gays and lesbians have a right to live as they choose;

they don’t have the right to redefine marriage for all of us.”

This allows people to express support for tolerance while opposing gay marriage. 

So let's take a closer look; Gays and Lesbians have a right to live as they choose....unless they wish to partake in the same social customs and privileges as every other citizen. If they cross that line, the loving members of organizations such as NOM, will attempt to use the force of law to keep them second class citizens, while folks like NOM get to retain the special rights that they so dearly love.

NOM claims that nobody has the right to "redefine" marriage.....yet NOM would deign to "define" marriage on the first place. Let us not forget that marriage has undergone many redefinitions, as women have slowly attained equal rights as full citizens over time; women are no longer chattel to be used as bargaining or brokering by wealthy males and families; and we do not allow the polygamy that we read about in the Bible.

Finally, a marriage means something special, yet with different qualities to each person and couple. If allowing gays to partake in the same civil contract [because marriage is a civil contract under our system of laws], causes such extreme anguish with folks such as NOM....then perhaps that says something about their marriage......


  1. I was watching that "Freedom" event this weekend with all those GOP candidates making speeches, and though I can't remember if they all said it, but when it came up all were vociferously anti-gay marriage. Given the percentage of approval in the general public, it's sad to see none of the Republicans, the only viable choice we will have on election day 2016, hold the thankfully now popular opinion. The lock-step GOP ideological rigidity has left the party bereft of any original thought about anything, save for only Rand Paul, a man the MIC will make sure never makes it beyond the US Senate.


    1. Agreed....but rather than be sad that the candidates down't espouse the 'popular''s even more sad that they don't support the pro-liberty opinion....while the entire event was laced with calls for "religious liberty".

  2. One of them, though I can't remember which, came right out and said we are not free from religion! I suppose we could have federally mandated religious affiliation, by that standard. John Roberts could say it's a tax! LOL!
