The 'Natural Family' vs. the Homo Agenda
One of the authors of the “family manifesto”, Alan Carlson of the Howard Center.
As I have been working hard on spreading word about the Homosexual Agenda, it looks like the wingnuts have working overtime to create “The Natural Family: A Manifesto.” It was developed by the Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society in Illinois, and the Utah-based Sutherland Institute. You can download the drivel, but you have to register and give your address. From American Family Association’s propaganda organ AgapePress:
At a press conference this week, co-author Dr. Alan Carlson reported that the document is designed to remind society of the importance of the family unit for one reason: “Healthy family life and healthy societies advance and decline together,” he stated. The “natural family,” Carlson said, is viewed as “the union of a man and a woman through marriage for the purposes of sharing love and joy, propagating children, providing their moral education, building a vital home economy, offering security in times of trouble, and binding the generations.”
Paul Mero, the other author of the document, said the pro-family movement needs the Manifesto. “The fact is that the side of the natural family is losing the culture war, and we have been for nearly 40 years,” the Sutherland Institute president said. Anyone who doubts that statement, he added, “need only reflect on the battles we fight presently.”
As Ms. Julien and others on Big Brass Blog have been noting, the Right cries about the sanctity of marriage and family until you have a case like Terri Schiavo, and then all bets are off. You get Tom DeLay in your hospital room, trying to call the shots over the legal rights of her husband. You see an indirect acknowledgment of this by one of the authors of the document, in reference to the elderly:
Mero described several of those battles. “Men and women care little about marriage and even less about having children. Sending a child to daycare is no more of a concern than sending a child out to the store to buy a loaf of bread. Divorce has become a ‘healing balm.’ And old folks, our aged parents, have become worthless burdens, encumbering our busy and convenient lives.”
This crowd also has an unhealthy fixation on procreation, and you can easily see how the ultimate goal is rolling back reproductive freedom and women’s rights under the guise of building healthy families.
Mero said he hopes the Manifesto will become a unifying tool that pro-family supporters can use it the struggle to bolster and rebuild the family. According to Carlson, the document offers an agenda to do exactly that.
“We will build a new culture of marriage where others would define marriage out of existence,” he said. “We will welcome and celebrate more babies and larger families where others would continue a war on human fertility.”
They want more women shooting out babies. Do I sense a feeling of desperation here? I don’t think it’s an overstatement to conclude that Mero and Carlson they are more concerned about white fertility, since that is the demographic where birth rates are not keeping pace to those of color.
These AmTaliban certainly have a pathetic, narrow and unrealistic view of what “family” is in today’s world. No amount of manifesto writing is going to change the fact that women work, gays are raising children and more folks in bible-beating Red states get divorced than those in Blue states. It would be a lot of fun to see how far they would get in a push to make divorce harder, though.
Covenant marriage is already being touted, most publicly by Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (a state that has one of the highest divorce rates in the country, btw). Few couples in the state have taken up the offer to engage in covenant marriage, which requires pre-marital counseling and counseling if problems arise in the marriage. The only valid reasons for ending a covenant marriage include adultery, criminal behavior, physical or sexual abuse, “habitual drunkenness for one year,” and “cruel and barbarous treatment.”
Looks like the “Family Manifesto” folks have a lot of work ahead of them. I better get back to my Homo Agenda right away:
1) Assume complete control of the US Federal, State and local Governments as well as all other national governments
2) Recruit all straight youngsters to our debauched lifestyle
3) Destroy all healthy heterosexual marriages
4) Replace all school counselors in grades K-12 with agents of Colombian and Jamaican drug cartels
5) Establish planetary chain of “homo breeding gulags” where over -medicated imprisoned straight women are turned into artificially impregnated baby factories to produce prepubescent love slaves for our devotedly pederastic gay leadership
6) Bulldoze all houses of worship
7) Secure total control of the INTERNET and all mass media for the exclusive use of child pornographers.
