Alan Sears has a great illustration to show the absudity of the ACLU demanding same sex marriage:
Imagine that tonight, in stadiums all over the United States, Major League Baseball games are disrupted by an invasion of football players, running by dozens and hundreds out onto the diamonds.
“We want to play, too!” the game-crashers cry.
“But this is baseball,” a pitcher points out. “It’s a totally different game.”
“Not fair!” the invaders insist. “We demand that you let us play! And here – use our ball. Re-line the field. And play by our NFL rules!”
“It won’t work,” says a shortstop. “You can’t pitch pigskin.”
“Foul!” scream the footballers to ESPN cameras. “Unsportsmanlike! Boycott baseball!”
The crowd grows restless and bellows their deafening disapproval. The umps’ thumbs are flying: “You’re outta the game!” But the helmeted Huns dig
in their cleats.
“These fans are narrow-minded!” they yell. “These umps are bought and paid for! Where’s the justice? What are these ballplayers so afraid of?”
“Football-phobics?” read the morning sports pages, featuring photos of outraged outfielders, shaking their fists at runningbacks spiking balls at home
He goes on to talk about the ACLU and how they don’t seem to have the best interests of the country at heart, just the best interests of a minority:
Of course, ACLU attorneys would claim that they must forego the will of the majority to preserve the demands of the few. Yet clearly they don’t care any more about people practicing homosexual behavior than they do
the rest of the populace. If they did, they would take note of the growing number of high-profile medical reports affirming the devastating physical toll of such behavior.
Instead, in their determination to ram acceptance of homosexual behavior down the collective throat of the American people, ACLU attorneys are actively promoting a self-destructive way of life that will ultimately destroy the health of – and even kill – many of their clients.
Just as obvious is the organization’s contempt for marriage itself. In fact, the ACLU has endorsed international legal efforts that would broaden the definition of marriage to include not only same-sex couples, but multiple partners and even temporary sexual relationships.
He goes on to ask the question I ask to you… why are they doing it? It certainly doesn’t seem reasonable!
