Stay in the closet

We are once again faced with much drama, passion, money, and lawyers as California fights in court the proposition that re-established the normal, historical, cultural understanding of marriage as exclusively between a man and a woman. Even President Obama expressed that understanding during his campaign

 Like many heterosexuals, I have homosexual friends whom I admire and respect for their achievements and contributions. Most are bright, thoughtful, and caring, and their souls are as precious to God as mine.

 Until recently, being a homosexual in the United States was a secret shame that would preclude security clearances and military service. Now it seems to be a badge of honor. I submit that the current craze to promote homosexuality is dysfunctional, for a very practical reason:

If a practice is good for a society, that society will increase; if it is damaging and widespread, the society will decrease. By design males do not have children by other males and women cannot reproduce with other women.

 It would seem to be a normal human instinct to minimize a practice that if widely adopted would result in the extinction of the race.

It is a death sentence if society abandons normal relations between men and women. I wish no ill toward homosexuals, but I do wish they would not promote their homosexuality—push it into our churches, schools, politics, and culture. We will see if our courts side with promoting human life or promoting a practice that would cause the death of our state, nation, and world in a few short generations.
