Gay Marriage A ‘Pernicious Lie Of Satan’ Says Focus On The Family

by David Badash on February 7, 2013

Same-sex marriage “is a really pernicious lie of Satan” says Focus on the Family‘s director for Family Formation Studies, Glenn Stanton.

“This is a really pernicious lie of Satan to say that the gender part of humanity doesn’t really matter because the gender part of humanity is really denying the distinct God imaging in each of us as males and females,’ stanton said on a Truth in Action Ministries radio show.

“We need to understand that as Christians. That’s the biggest thing. The other is that, ‘you know kids don’t really need a mom and a dad they just need any configuration of loving adults who care for them,’ in fact, and this has already been in the case, we all know about what hate speech is, the fact of saying a child needs a mother and a father will be deemed hate speech because that is a statement against same-sex marriage and parenting. That’s a radical thing. The other thing is religious freedom, I mean we’re already seeing that on a vast, vast scale; the other side really in a pitiful way goes, ‘oh we’re not going to violate religious freedom, you’re not going to have to marry same-sex couples in your church,’ but it goes far beyond that.”

Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch, where you can hear the audio, notes also that Stanton, “went on to warn that gay equality leads to the ‘persecution’ of Christians and will ‘redefine not only marriage but the family itself if not humanity completely.’”

Focus on the Family, while not an anti-gay hate group, was founded by James Dobson, the same person who founded the Family Research Council, which is an active anti-gay hate group.

Unsurprisingly, Stanton has a column at the National Review, home to Maggie Gallagher, along with outbursts of racism and homophobia.

Dualism with a trinitarian concept of God? You'd think that between Jesus and the "Lord" they could overcome the power of their bugaboo, dreamed up to explain the presence of evil in the world, when in fact it is a logical fallacy to posit a good, all-powerful God and the existence of evil. Either these folks are a bit confused or they are insane.

Do these alleged people really believe their own conjured up manipulations? Any time I see or hear the word "Family" in the name of an organization I know it's a hate group. The idea of binary gender is as old as time and the new concept of a gender spectrum is much more realistic. But these old men are afraid that deviating from the binary definition will somehow confuse them so they preach that any deviation is to blame for the end of the world.

Momma always said; "Education is the only way to counter ignorance and hate". Which means these pea brains obviously dropped out of elementary school for lack of ability to keep up the other first graders. Now they go out and use scare tactics to attempt to garner support for their hate group. But their words are too far out and mainstream America loathes such bigots. The wall of "Family this and that" fools no one and society has already accepted same-sex marriage as a legitimate alternative to hetero marriage.

The ship sailed on these idiots and they'e now standing on the docks watching the ship sail away without them. Hence they need all the negative attention they can muster. So they conspire like the NRA telling tales of a future where gays rule the planet with heteros in sex slave camps. Problem is they actually believe the sewage coming out of their own mouths.

Please, "family" groups, mind your own business and stop disrespecting my right to live happy, joyous and free. No one wants to hear the lies and hatred any longer.

Why is this not an official hate group? Linking gays to imaginary evil deamons sounds pretty hateful to me.

They are using an old playbook that so-called chrisitans wore out long ago — the victim card. "Oh, us poor christians. We are so persecuted for our beliefs." Of course, they wouldn't be persecuted if they would keep their collective noses out of my business and not try to direct how other people live their lives. Allowing gay couples to marry won't affect them in any way, but they want to tell other people how to live.

How absolutely typical of FOTF and its leadership. This organization has promoted flat-out hatred towards gay men and lesbians, has written countless amicus briefs arguing against gay equality (anti-discrimination laws, marriage equality, etc.), and made countless ugly and baseless comparisons of homosexuality to any number of paraphilias (sexual disorders as defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V-TR). This organization is indeed an anti-gay hate group, regardless of its protestations to the contrary.

Never explained is exactly HOW gay equality will lead to the collapse of the family, the undermining of Western civilization, and the overall decline of humanity. None of this is ever explained — it is simply repeated, as though it gains credibility through sheer force of repetition. Equality is a prize to be sought after in ANY society, regardless of its religious roots or original founding faith.

There is so little true love in this world — so little true love — that any form of love shared between competent adults should be celebrated and applauded, not relegated to condemnation and abuse.
