I have noted the problems surrounding perennial candidate Andy Martin, and he has even ridiculously called me a “criminal.”
But I have to laugh at those who are reacting with such horror to Martin’s radio ad about U.S. Senate Mark Kirk’s supposed sexual orientation. I won’t name names – you can click through the odd blogs to find all the useless and silly expressions of dismay that the topic is being aired of Mark Kirk’s alleged homosexuality.
Please. If you work in Washington, D.C., Illinois or Virginia politics, or live in Kirk’s congressional district, you’ve probably already heard the widespread rumors about Mark Kirk’s “orientation.”
The process – and all of us – would be so much better off if we didn’t have to talk about any of this. But marriage is under assault, the public schools are home to radical left-wing propaganda efforts, and vulgar “pride” parades have made psychological problems something to be celebrated.
“Hate crimes” legislation has passed, and those whose confusion almost knows no bounds have created a special class of citizens who we’re not supposed to discriminate against if they prefer to reach orgasm in a certain way.
Listen, if you want me to know about your sex life, I will be discriminating against you, I guarantee it.
For those who don’t want to talk about the issue – I’m not sure what to say except that you should wake up and look around you. We didn’t start the fire – the conversation was begun by those who seek to work out their psychological issues in public. Those aren’t my words – that’s what self professed lesbian Tammy Bruce wrote in her book “The Death of Right and Wrong.”
There is no “straight” male who has a problem with the question, “are you a homosexual?” The answer is “no,” and every variation you can think of that expresses “no” in clear and adamant terms.
If you’re Mark Kirk – or, for that matter, any other Republican politician who rumors surround (like state Senator Dan Rutherford or Congressman Aaron Schock), then the question itself is a controversy. And the weak-minded become upset.
I have sympathy for those who aren’t comfortable with the subject of homosexuality – but I’d advise you to get over it. It’s here to stay, like it or not, and the sooner you learn how to address the subject the sooner you’ll be a part of the solution and not a part of the problem.
Don’t think for an instant that the proponents of so-called “homosexual rights” don’t capitalize on normal people’s aversion to discussing what should be a private matter. But since they’ve made it public, it’s now public.
For those of you who agree with me that we should return private sexual matters to being private sexual matters, please join those of us telling the social issue left-wingers to leave marriage alone, stay out of the classrooms with their disgusting proselytizing, and quit creating new statutes – and repeal the existing ones – that infringe on Americans’ Constitutionally guaranteed religious liberties.
Short of that – at least deal with life and politics as it is, not as you wish it would be.
