In this age of liberation and relative morality it is no surprise

that homosexuals have tried very hard to gain ground in the way of civil

rights. Homosexuals say they want equal rights, and they want

homosexual-marriages to be legalized. However, what they are asking for

is not reasonable. They are humans; and therefore they already have the

same rights as every other human living in America. What homosexuals want

are special privileges and the acceptance of homosexuality as a natural

alternative lifestyle. I believe that homosexual-marriages should never be

legalized in America first because homosexuality is not a natural

alternative lifestyle, second, marriage is already clearly defined, and

third because homosexuals already have the same rights, they want special

privileges, and since homosexuality is not in innate quality they don’t

deserve them.

People who have been misinformed about what the homosexual agenda

is think that homosexual marriage is natural and that it should be

legalized. I however, am opposed to this because homosexuality is not a

natural alternative lifestyle. First let’s define homosexuality.

According to the American Heritage Dictionary, homosexuality is “having a

sexual orientation to persons of the same sex.” Men and women are

obviously biologically different. People of the same sex having

intercourse goes against what is biologically natural. Part of the

homosexual agenda is to make people believe that homosexuals are the same

as heterosexuals when it comes to engaging in sexual behavior. This is

absolutely not true. In his book **Cassel’s Queer Companion, a Dictionary

of Lesbian and Gay Life and Culture**, William Stewart describes some of

the sexual activities that homosexuals practice. These include “fisting,

when one partner shoves his whole hand up the anus of the other partner;”

“rimming, when one partner licks the anus of the other partner.” In the

essay **Homosexual Rights: What’s Wrong**, written by Brad Hayton and John

Eldrege, they stated that “The U.S. taxpayer-funded Mapplethorpe photos .

. . portrayed typical homosexual behavior: fisting (thrusting one’s fist

up another’s anus), urinating into another’s mouth(in this case, a

child’s), and sadomasochism. The average homosexual has 20-106 different

partners per year–300-500 in a life time” How can this be compared to

heterosexual intercourse? How is this natural? It isn’t; this type of

sexual behavior – even if it were practiced by heterosexuals – cannot be

considered natural, in fact there are many states that have anti-sodomy

laws though not enforced. As part of their agenda homosexuals not only

want these things to be accepted and protected by the government, they

also want them to be taught in public school as part of the sex education


Homosexuals believe they deserve the right to get married that

since they think they are an oppressed minority . Let me first define

marriage; according to the American Heritage Dictionary marriage is

defined as “The legal union of a man and a woman as husband and wife.”

It does not say “the legal union of man and man as husband and husband”;

nor does it say “the legal union of woman and woman as wife and wife.”

Marriage has a clear definition a definition that has been around since

civilization began. Why are homosexuals trying to redefine the meaning of

something so sacred and natural like marriage when there are many other

options that offer the same benefits? Marriage is the key to family

stability, which in turn is the key to a stable society. However, if

homosexual-marriage is allowed, it will pervert and bastardize the

significance of marriage. In an essay printed by Common Sense Now, the

author basically argues that children need a normal mother and father type

of structure so that they are properly nurtured by parents of opposite

sexes. This ensures a more natural upbringing. Since homosexual means

“same sex”, the results of this type of upbringing for a child may prove

more detrimental than good. I believe that since the beginning of time,

marriage has always been saved for a man and a woman, it should stay that


Homosexuals claim they are a minority and are pleading the

government to give them equal rights. They form groups like the “queer

nation” to make it look like they are an oppressed people. This is

absolutely ludicrous! Unless they go through what African Americans have

been through, homosexuals have no clue as to oppression is. In the Wall

Street Journal, July 18, 1991, page B1, a chart was published comparing a

true minority, African Americans, to a false minority, homosexuals. The

table looks like this:

__________________________Black Americans_______Homosexuals_________

Denied the right to vote?—————— YES———————- NO————-

Official segregation? ——————YES———————–NO————-

Denied access by law to public

drinking fountains, restrooms?————YES———————–NO————-

Denied access by law to businesses

restaurants, barbershops etc.?————–YES———————-NO————–

Verifiable economic hardships

as a result of discrimination?—————YES———————-NO————-

Unfortunately, some homosexuals have been the victims of violence because

of their lifestyle. I do not condone this, nor do I feel violence is an

answer to the homosexual agenda. It is also understandable that they feel

threatened by the violence but as the table shows, homosexuals have not

been through anything remotely close to what African Americans have been

through. Homosexuals also have no right to special privileges, because

according to world renowned scientists, homosexuality is not an immutable

characteristic such as skin color or eye color. For example, Masters &

Johnson say “We’re born man, woman and sexual beings. We learn our sexual

preferences and orientations.” Also, Dr. R. Kronenmeyer a renowned

clinical psychologist states that “Homosexuals are not born ‘that way’.

From my 25 years’ experience as a clinical psychologist, I firmly believe

that homosexuality is a learned response to early painful experiences and

that it can be unlearned.” The last example is Dr. Judd Marmor, former

president of the American Psychiatric Association, he states that “No one

has ever found a single, replicable genetic, hormonal or chemical

difference between heterosexuals and homosexuals.” Since they are not a

true minority, and homosexuality is not an immutable character,

homosexuals do not deserve special treatment from the government.

Homosexuals claim that they should have minority status, they are

not qualified to call themselves a minority as it is shown in the above

table and by evidence gathered by experts. Homosexuals want marriages

legalized. I think they should leave marriage alone. There are other

options available which would give them similar benefits as heterosexual

couples. For instance “domestic partnerships” where they are recognized

as being in a formal monogamous relationship which entitles them to many

of the same benefits a married couple is entitled to. Though I do not

agree with them, many very large companies offer benefits to homosexual

couples. Companies like United Airlines, American Airlines and others.

Why don’t they settle for these alternatives? They will not settle for

the alternatives because if homosexual-marriage is legalized, they will

have won the ultimate battle, the recognition of homosexuality as

something natural and acceptable. In this case I cannot just sit back and

do nothing, people should know both sides of the story, the true

homosexual agenda which is to make homosexuality seem natural and normal;

then they can make up their mind as to whether they will support it or
