Bill Muehlenberg’s Culture Watch column is one of the best places in the world (he lives in Australia) to read an honest and hard-hitting review of what’s happening to the social fabric in the West. His most recent post is another excellent example (I’ve listed several others below that I’ve been meaning to link). Here’s his opening along with the “five really dumb things” that follow:
One could easily write an entire book on all the really moronic and senseless things the homosexual activists say when they “argue” with us. Of course one has to use the word “argue” quite loosely here, since what the militants engage in can hardly be described as arguments – more like sophomoric rants in fact.
So as you discuss or debate with these activists, bear in mind they will almost invariably throw some real doozies your way. These remarks will have very little to do with logic and rationality. They will not be actual arguments or well-reasoned claims.
They will just be foolish attacks lacking in any merit. But this is just how the other side operates – time and time again. This is their standard modus operandi. Here then are five of these dopey claims you will likely hear over and over again in such discussions:
1. You are just homophobic
2. You hate homosexuals
3. You are really a repressed homosexual
4. You are forcing your morality on me
5. You should keep the state out of our bedrooms
