Traditional marriage proponents are warning that homosexual activists and the Obama administration are once again working in concert to "manipulate" federal law.
The Associated Press reports that the Census Bureau plans to count same-sex couples who say they are married, regardless of whether they have a marriage license (see AP article). Even though only five states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex "marriages," the Census Bureau says same-sex couples should feel free to check the "husband" or "wife" boxes on the census form, rather than "unmarried partner."
According to OneNewsNow, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality "believes homosexual activists are using the census as their latest 'gimmick' to seek affirmation of their lifestyle, and he challenges Congress to 'step up' and prevent the Obama administration from promoting the 'gay' agenda by dictate."
A concern here, among many, is that we see yet another example of the rogue federal state using an arm of government (the Census Bureau) to justify the imposition upon Americans of an extremist and regressive agenda not only estranged from the enduring American mainstream but also in opposition to "nature and nature's God."
The homosexual agenda is not a "civil right" based on "equality." Rather, it is an uncivil wrong based on extremism.
And now the Census Bureau appears to be acting at the behest of propaganda aims that are both laughable and cruel, a machine of state oppression tearing away at the flesh of the American family and body politic.
A country that violates the rules for freedom, rooted in unalienable rights as blessings from the Creator, should not be surprized that it thereby places those freedoms at risk in a dangerous world where unfreedom is the abormal norm, not the liberating exception.
On the other hand, neither should extremists who despise the mission statement of the United States -- freedom under God -- be surprised that a free, dignifed, and creative "We the People" would just as soon stay that way.
In the face of such disrepect for the enduring American mainstream of freedom, resistance is the humane order of the day.
As tyrants at home and abroad have learned before, Americans are a friendly people. But don't mistake the politeness for the whole story. We are lions in sheep's clothing. And yet you attack.
