The fear that making gay “ok” will therefore destroy the very fabric of the American family… that we’ll all start running around naked and making love in the streets… that cats and dogs will start sleeping together… “It’ll be anarchy, I tell you!”
Who would think such a thing?
Gay Pride parades are a good place to start. As a conservative Christian, what happens "in the streets" at those "celebrations," lends support to the anything goes nature of the GLBT culture that many of us parents (and not just Christian parents) teach our children is harmful to their future. And even in the most hedonistic of straight bars, it is hardly likely that a man or a woman will have sex with dozens and dozens of differnt people in one night. If Christians heard the GLBT community talk about abstinence as an important issue TO Gay Marriage, this would dispell the recruitment and pederasty aspect of what many of us see as happening "in" the Gay community TO our children. And on another note, this "questioning youth" aspect of the GLBT community that you neglected, are there ANY instances where a GLBT (PFLAG or GLSEN authority) shows a "questioning youth" that they are NOT indeed G,L,B or, T? Any such examples would go a long way to dispelling uneasiness. I don't visit Gay websites like PFLAG and GLSEN, but wouldn't mind if morality was anything similar to what I see in the Christian worldview.
