WA State at Crossroads. Does It Matter?

Tomorrow, Washington State will choose whether to cross the threshold to same-sex "marriage" or push back and preserve natural marriage as the historical institution that has served every successful society in human history.

And SB 5688 is about homosexual "marriage".

Senator Ed Murray and Representative Jamie Pederson have repeatedly made it very clear that SB 5688 and domestic partnerships is a "long term strategy" and a "bridge" until homosexual "marriage" is legal.

The Seattle Times and others in the print news have selectively reported on the R-71 campaign while their editorial boards and columnists have been calling for passage of SB 5688, with the Seattle Times editorial board actually calling for same-sex "marriage" following the Governor's signing of SB 5688. In the celebratory spirit of the moment a few months ago, the Times Editorial Board said, "Give them the name."

Domestic partnerships has been advanced as a compassionate expression--an act of tolerance and equality, while in truth, it is a train rushing across the threshold to a place that will, in fact, negatively impact every aspect of society.

If you think that homosexual "marriage" is a benign act of tolerance that really doesn't affect the life and marriage of anyone else---think again.

That's the big lie.

In Massachusetts, it has become a hammer to force acceptance and normalization on everyone---in every part of the state's culture.

Homosexual "marriage" came to Massachusetts through litigation in the GOODRIDGE Court opinion, which ruled that it was unconstitutional not to allow same-sex marriage.

SB 5688 sets the table for the same legal conclusion. And the sponsors know it.

Brian Camenkar, with the organization, Mass Resistance, has written an overview titled, "What Same-sex 'Marriage' Has Done To Massachusetts," which covers the period from the "Goodridge" case, November 18, 2003 through this past year.

If you read nothing else today, please read this article.

He says, "Homosexual 'marriage' hangs over society like a hammer with the force of law, affecting every aspect of life. And it's only just begun."

In this article, which is downloadable, he reviews how re-defining marriage has impacted the public schools, with a school wide assembly to, "celebrate same-sex 'marriage' and a teacher telling NPR that she tells kids in the classroom that, 'lesbians can have vaginal intercourse using sex toys.'"

He gives an extensive overview of the negative impact to public education, public health, increased cost of domestic violence related to homosexual behavior, business, the legal profession, homosexual adoption, government mandates, the media and the public square.

"It's pretty clear," he says in conclusion, "the homosexual movement's obsession with 'marriage' is not because large numbers of them actually want to marry each other---This is about putting the legal stamp of approval on homosexuality and imposing it with force throughout the various social and political institutions of a society that would never accept it otherwise."

He says, "To the rest of America: You've been forewarned."

Washington, you, too, have been forewarned. And it matters.
