Gay guys are born with the same sexual orientation YOUR MOTHER was born with; attracted to men(copy and paste shortened for 4000 word limit)
The negative variant is to portray all detractors as victimizers by pairing them with negative images (symbols) of "[k]lansmen demanding that gays be slaughtered[,]...[h]ysterical backwoods preachers[,]...[m]enacing punks[,]...[and a] tour of Nazi concentration camps where homosexuals were tortured and gassed." In essence, they use positive or negative icons (symbols) and not the actual words for their persuasive message.
3. Dust Off the Unholy Alliance Perhaps the most menacing focus of the campaign is the special treatment reserved for the religious dissenters. The strategy is to "[j]am homohatred by linking it to Nazi horror."
Most contemporary hate groups on the Religious Right will bitterly resent the implied connection between homohatred and Nazi fascism. But since they can't defend the latter, they'll end up having to distance themselves by insisting that they would never go to such extremes. Such declarations of civility toward gays, of course, set our worst detractors on the slippery slope toward recognition of fundamental gay rights.
...[Furthermore] gays can undermine the moral authority of homohating churches over less fervent adherents by portraying ...[them] as antiquated backwaters, badly out of step ... with the latest findings of psychology. Against the atavistic tug of Old Time Religion one must set the mightier pull of Science and Public Opinion .... Such an 'unholy' alliance has already worked well in America against the churches, on such topics as divorce and abortion....[T]hat alliance can work for gays.
Although some might label such virulent persuasion tactics as antisocial, the form of government that we enjoy has persuasion at its roots.
III. PERSUASION, SOCIETY, AND DEMOCRACY A. Rhetoric The ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome are often considered the cradle of modern Western democracies. In Greece, a direct democracy, decisions were made through serious public discussion and open debate. Hence, the ability to personally persuade others to accept one's point of view was an essential skill. The Sophists filled the demand (marketplace) for the teaching of this public speaking skill called rhetoric.
When Rome later arose as a representative republic, "[p]ower was very often exercised not through bottom line legalities but through the persuasiveness and force of argument of particular office holders or assemblies." The Roman marketplace now required not only teachers but also professional persuaders for hire. Sophists were reborn as lawyers and lawmakers. Modern America is very much like the Roman Republic. Romans were primarily interested in the practical uses of the art of persuasion just as Americans are immersed in advertising and spin doctoring"[l]ess interested in ... absolute truth and more interested in what 'works.'" Therefore, those that most influence society today, from lawyers to lawmakers, lobbyists to marketers, descend from the sophists, the experts in rhetoric and the artists of persuasion. Modern rhetorician Richard M. Weaver "was a champion of conservative ... ideas." "One of the mainstays of conservative thought is a concern for values. Weaver felt that American culture was losing many values worth preserving." These very same concepts underlie the resistance by society at large to affirmation of the homosexual community.
