GAY MARRIAGE IN ILLINOIS AND LIFE:
Some argue same-sex/gay marriage is a slippery slope leading to the abolition of all marriage. There is truth in this argument. The real issue, however, hidden behind the smoke screen of same-sex/gay marriage is an attack on the Roman Catholic Church in Illinois.
Furthermore, this attack on the Roman Catholic Church has at it source anti-Semitism. This is the case because the Roman Catholic Church is one of the few institutions in the world that takes Judaism seriously, something some Jews don't even do.
To be in favor of same-sex/gay marriage is to ultimately be in favor of death over life. The logic of this may not be self-evident, but surely the symbolism of the defining act is. Life is the principle value in Judaism, and in turn it is at the root of Roman Catholicism, too. How is life in this world sustained? The common sense answer to this is the symbols inherent in heterosexual love and marriage.
In opposition to this symbolism, same-sex/gay marriage offers us the symbolism of anal intercourse. Instead of the bright new face of a child, we are offered the dark, bottomless hole of sex divorced from procreation. This is the same dark hole into which the Nazis wanted to condemn the Jews.
To be against same-sex/gay marriage is not to be against GLBT people. To be against same-sex/gay marriage is not to be blind to the problems and discrimination GLBT people suffer in the world. Be that as it may, same-sex/gay marriage is not a moral solution to these problems or that discrimination.
Consider the analogy of poverty. Yes, there are poor people with problems. Nevertheless, stealing is not a moral solution to the problem of poverty. The best moral solution to poverty is not communism, but charity and a republic with a constitution and a free economy. Likewise, the best GLBT people can hope for is not an immoral redefinition of marriage, but life in a constitutional republic.
An all powerful, progressive state cannot tolerate religion, especially Roman Catholicism and Judaism. Nothing, especially God, must come between the individual and the government. Such a government will use same-sex/gay marriage to attack and discredit religion. A government that adopts same-sex/gay marriage is by definition anti-Semitic.
Illinois should not join the anti-Semites of the world by adopting same-sex/gay marriage. You say all love is equal, but if same-sex/gay marriage passes into law you will see only what the Nazi upheaval saw--all death is equal.
