Elton slips up and tells the truth

From Variety:
At a concert to raise money for the legal fund to overturn Proposition 8, Elton John earned multiple standing ovations for classics like "Bennie and the Jets," "Rocket Man" and "Levon," but the biggest cheers were reserved for what he said just before performing his final song of the evening.

"As a gay man. I think I have it all," he said. "I have a wonderful career. A wonderful life. I have my health. I have a partner of 17 years and I have a son. And you know what, I don't have everything, because I don't have the respect of people like the church, and people like politicians who tell me that I not worthy or that I am 'less than' because I am gay. Well, fuck you...."

I don't have everything, because I don't have the respect of people like the church. . .

That is the gay agenda in a nutshell.

It doesn't matter that there are legal mechanisms such as medical power of attorney agreements which give homosexual couples all of the legal rights regarding their partners that married couples have. It doesn’t matter that there are legally recognized civil unions which automatically convey all of those rights upon homosexual couples.

It doesn’t matter that there are many churches which welcome practicing homosexuals as full members and ordain them as clergy. It doesn’t matter that there is even a Protestant demonization which specifically caters to homosexuals (the Metropolitan Community Church).

No, they will not rest until every church and synagogue (although they are curiously silent about mosques) will be legally forced to renounce biblical teaching about homosexuality and, at gunpoint, accept “out and proud” homosexuals as members and into all clergy positions.

Later on we hear from Rob (Meathead) Reiner:

Rob Reiner, who with Chad Griffin originally hatched the idea to pursue the case, emceed, and told the crowd, "We are putting the last piece of the civil rights puzzle into place...Years from now, people are going to look back and say, 'What was that all about?'"

No Meathead if you succeed we won't hear “what was that all about” years from now. What we will hear generations from now – if civilization can manage to rebuild itself – is “how could they have been so stupid”.

Advocates of homosexual “marriage” are found of noting the high divorce rate and making the observation that it is heterosexuals who are destroying the institution of marriage. They have a point. If our society had not devalued marriage legally through easy divorce laws and socially through acceptance of out of wedlock pregnancies and self-serving lies like “it’s better for the children” then our culture would have never degenerated to the point where we could even consider the legalization of homosexual “marriage”.

However it does not seem to me that the ideal answer to the fact that we have allowed our civilization to come close to the point where it will disintegrate is to accelerate the process.

We need to remember that when a great civilization rots from within until it reaches the point where it caves in upon itself what follows is not come kind of golden age of love and acceptance but a dark age where life tends to be ugly, brutal and short.

Elton John is an old man and will not live to see the inevitable result of his folly, but his son will. Is that really what he and his “partner” want for the boy?
