I’d like to expound upon Tina Korbe’s point here:
A quick note on Cameron’s comment that homosexuality is “destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization”: If you take that very literally, it’s actually pretty indisputable. The very first foundation of any civilization is existence itself. Human reproduction is necessary for human civilization. If our twenty-first century civilization consisted entirely of homosexuals who engaged only in homosexual behavior, civilization would rapidly cease to exist. From this literal perspective, homosexuality is no more destructive to civilization than contraception or abortion — but it is destructive. It serves no point to deny that.
We need to consider existence both from the individual and civilization perspectives. Individually, we #OccupyWomb, and hopefully grow to sprout the full Maslow pyramid of physical body, mind and ‘spirit’. For my life, Christianity is the ultimate fertilizer for that growth, here and hereafter. Properly understood, mind, body and spirit are a harmonized trinity*.
I believe this spiritually, and write about it in a rational, dispassionate way for the blog. It’s not as though there is some closed-form, intellectual proof of any faith. Faith and reason occur at different levels of Maslow’s hierarchy. I’m not here to bore you with talk of Jay-zuhs keeping you out of Hay-ell. Though the thought of eternal separation from Truth, in a place where BHO’s speeches play in an infinite loop, should give us all pause.
Physically, form follows function. While I will love any human male, and appreciate whatever talent he brings to the culture, any male who can’t figure out the proper application of the wedding tackle does not impress me. Anybody who tries to argue that Romans 1 does not exist, or that the Bible does not address sexuality is an utter fool. How many times does the Bible discuss marriage, directly or indirectly? Far, far into the hundreds. Those who would claim Christianity and spread utterly false, Progressive, modern doctrines of tolerating un-Biblical ideas will probably enjoy the BHO speech loop when they reach their destination, for the first couple of millennia, anyway.
I spend time enjoying being a father to my newborn son. I pray for these overgrown boys who, in their narcissistic quest for carnal pleasure, are missing true joy in life. Repent, grow up, settle down, marry (within the only meaning ‘marriage’ can ever encompass in the eyes of God) and grasp the fullness of life, ye nitwits! I pray that I can communicate the truth of existence to little Niklas in such a way as to guard him from the destructive evil of the Postmodern, Progressivist sewer of lies. Progressivism is as morally bankrupt as it is financially, and shall be proven historically as our current disaster unfolds.
Progressivism is a tragic prequel to the parable of the Prodigal Son. Call it ‘The Slightly Less Prodigal Father’. Earlier than the parable in Luke, the could-have-been father of the two sons did a fat refinance of his house, because there was a huge housing bubble and the value of his property trebled. And he went to Jezreel, a ‘San Francisco’ in its time, and partied like a rock star. So decadent was his partying that even Jezebel, the Nancy Pelosi of the era, thought it all a bit much. He and the boys had such a good time that he never got around to having sons, wrapped up in his decadence and potpourri like he was. And he died without meaning, or even getting to star in the parable that, in our Gospel, has helped so many to avoid the “Let me be perfectly clears” of that sad, endless speech loop in perdition.
Enough of that. Here is my favorite Elton John cut. The details are completely backwards, but the sentiment is still spot-on, and I weep for my brother whenever I hear this. Thank you for your art, Reginald, and no thanks for failing to grow up be a father, which issue might have contributed even more to humanity**.

*Plenty, even most, Christians–me–are fat, mentally lazy, spiritually immature, or a combination. I’m speaking of Christ as the direction in which Christians should be drawn by the Bible, as individuals. Mileage varies considerably. Judge yourself, that ye be not judged when before Christ.
**Oh, and another ‘May you rot’ to those who’ve denigrated parenthood, and spread this pernicious over-population myth. I understand it is a sop for those who’ve frittered away their vitality on Progressivism. That foolishness, too, will drive you mad when BHO’s strawman chorus sings for you in Hell.
