Tonight I was reading a post by Jennifer Fulwiler on her blog site ‘A Conversion Diary’. She was describing a conversation about ‘gay marriage’ she had engaged in with a gay friend. I have been thinking about her post, and it triggered some thoughts of my own…
Human society absolutely requires one basic thing – humans.Without humans, humans don’t exist and, therefore, human society cannot exist. That seems pretty basic, I know, but that’s where everything human (on an Earthly level) starts. How many people ever stop to consider that?
In order to create a human being, you need a human sperm and a human egg.
In order to acquire a human sperm and a human egg, you need a human male and a human female. That’s just the nature of things.You can’t, within nature, no matter how hard you try or wish it to be, get sperm from a female or an egg from a male member of the species. Nature is simply not going to bend her own rules to accommodate two people of the same gender and allow them to create life together. No matter how much they like or love each other.
So, in order for society to exist, procreation must occur, and the only way that procreation can occur is for a man and a woman to engage in the only (natural) activity through which new human life is created – sex. And when a new life is created, the basic building block of society comes into existence – a family.
The family is where all society begins. Without a mother and a father, there can be no children. And if there are no children, humanity becomes extinct, taking with it human society. (I know that’s a bit redundant, but it’s important to understand that propagation is the only reason we exist.)
Throughout history, nature has demanded the propagation of the the human species, and the only way she has provided for our survival is through conjugal relations between a man and a woman. As civilizations developed, these relationships became formalized, and the moniker of “marriage” was applied to the committed procreative state.
And, at it’s core, that’s what “marriage” is – the natural coming together of a man and a woman to fulfill the requirements of nature and society for the purpose of ensuring that the Human Race continues.
And that’s the way “marriage” has been defined and practiced for thousands of years. It is the natural state of things. Anything else is outside of nature.
To remove the possibility of a child from the sex act is unnatural, but that is what became the “norm” around 1930. (See “Fruits Of The Contraceptive Mindset” for background.) Artificial contraception got the ‘go ahead’ from the Church of England and suddenly we started down the road of “All sex all the time” with no fear of pregnancy.
The natural result of sexual relations is a child, and since you take the (possibility of) a baby out of sex, there is no reason to have a normal sexual relationship – they all become normal…
And here’s a short list of what’s become the norm, or is becoming the norm, since we started thinking this way…
- Rampant Adultery
- Ubiquitous pornography
- Mercy killing/Euthanasia
- High divorce rates
- Childhood sex
- Unchecked unwed motherhood
- Gay marriage
- Epidemic levels of sexually transmitted diseases
The mindset which grew out of the acceptance of artificial contraception has brought us to where we are today. The gravity of the contraceptive mentality has made the journey down the slippery slope an unnatural reality.
The word “Artificial”, by definition, means “not natural”. “Not natural” means “outside of nature”. Hence, everything that has transpired since sex became disassociated with the bearing of children is based on practices against the natural order. And, of course, gay marriage is on that list.
The gay lifestyle is a product of the mindset that “children are not the product of a sexual relationship”. “Gay marriage” is the unnatural progression from acceptance of the gay life style, and therefore, of the contraceptive mindset.
The “contraceptive mindset” is, at it’s deepest foundation, unnatural and, therefore, against nature itself.
And as the concept of “gay Marriage” is based on the artificiality of the contraceptive mindset (that procreation is not a part of the sexual union), it is also against nature itself.
Even if gay couples live together, adopt children and call themselves a family, the most they can ever hope to be is an artificial family unit.
If two men or two women could, without outside human interference, produce life together, there would be no reason to oppose “gay marriage”. But they cannot.
