The Moral High Ground

We have it. They don't. Really, end of story.

Of course, they try to spin their views as the moral views and people buy their crap in this morally relativisitic world, but ultimately, they are for the immoral.

Reuters: Gays push to recast marriage on morals---

OAKLAND, California (Reuters) - As U.S. gays and lesbians prepare to battle a raft of state constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage that will likely be on the ballot next fall, activists are recasting the issue as one that needs to be fought on moral rather than political grounds.

That is the message Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the oldest and leading U.S. grass-roots gay and lesbian coalition, has taken to more than 2,500 gay rights organizers at its annual conference held in Oakland this week.

"What I really want people to understand is rather than seeing these as political contests, these are really profound, unfair, bordering on immoral elections," Foreman told Reuters on Saturday. "Imagine if this was being done to a minority in Kosovo -- people would be outraged."

The conference, due to end on Sunday, is the first national gathering of gay and lesbian organizers since Tuesday's elections in which Texan voters approved, by nearly a 76 percent majority, a state constitutional amendment banning

Opponents, who believe marriage is only between a man and a woman, argue that same-sex marriage is unnatural and damaging to families.
We, religious, conservative people, have always believed the issue is about morality, not politics. It is late in the game for these depraved people to decide they have morality on their side. They don't.

Christianity has, for 2,000 years, recognized homosexuality as a sin. It has only been in recent years that Liberal "churches" have allowed it to creep into their "teachings." True Christians reject homosexuality for what it is, while still loving the sinner.

Of course, the author of the article didn't bother to actually quote any pro-marriage, pro-family, pro-morals, pro-religion people, only the side that practices such debauchery. We will certainly see more of that in the media. They are all for homosexuality.

But we have the Moral High Ground. It's called the Bible.
