Just as "they" (ubiquitous "they") can BRING THEIR OWN BIBLE VERSE to argue against many of the things that Holyfield believes in as "normal" - so is the case with his inspection of the "normality" of homosexuality.
In the next few weeks we will likely hear sundry details of Mr Holyfield's:
- Serial Marriages
I am against a government attempting to regulate the personal and social behavior of free individuals - as long as they don't harm anyone else in their course of living.
HOWEVER - as a SOCIETY (and for those of us 'People Of Faith') we are asked to "Help Our Fellow Man".
Those (who I believe) are seeking to USE this mandate to make POLITICAL gains, by shifting this which is an INDIVIDUAL calling from our spiritual, religious and "character" composition to "Help Our Fellow Man' - seek to stand at the "ribbon cutting" ritual - thanks to the use of other people's money - to claim that THEY have a special closeness with "God" as evidenced by their public policy.
When we inspect a bit further - the misalignment is exposed.
We can all agree that "broken familial relationships" are a key source of much of the dysfunction that we see in our society as children are imprinted with messages that run awry of what is statistically proven to be the key construct for success at allowing them to reach closer to their full potential.
I DO NOT get caught up into the trap that "Marriage is for 'baby making", only to suffer the "Well Why Do You Allow Elderly Straight Couples Who Won't Have Children To Marry Then?"
The bottom line is that we are talking about THEORIES OF SOCIETAL GOVERNANCE.
I REFUSE to allow a radical upstart set of theories to use their TRANSACTIONAL, Ideological Imperialism - to create a "New Societal Normal" - only to follow through with the "Establishment Power Repudiation" scheme - in which the resulting problems that REMAIN offer them yet another round of a "Struggle Motion" that will promise "a fix" - if they are giving more power and time to "correct them".
Ironically - those who argue most vociferously against the "exclusivity" that elite ranks of the society enjoy ( a special interest with power) are themselves guilty of trying to arrange POWER for their own bit of cultural imperialism as they operate like a 'distributor cap', seeking to cut a deal with a serial collection of special interest groups (transactional advocacy) - without assuming the responsibility of the establishment - WHO MUST STAND ACCOUNTABLE FOR "THE WHOLE".
In the pile of "unfinished business" - as the rotor on the 'distributor cap' rotates to the next special interest - the same vulnerable people whose COMMUNITY INSTITUTIONS have been taken over yet destroyed in their capability to develop the people who are most in need of order and the synergy of two adults, coupled together to support the effort of maintaining a house and a family - as THIS is "The Norm". The "normality" of homosexuality is an IRRELEVANT discussion.
What we have is a SOCIETAL CHOICE at hand.
NO the world is not going to blow up with "hellfire" if "Same Sex Marriage" is made legal. At the same time you will NOT have the balance of 6 year old children observe "same sex behavior" among adults and believe this to be anything but an exception.
Societal tolerance - yes.
The PRIORITIZATION OF THE NEED for STRONG FAMILIES, headed by one man and one woman, as a STRATEGIC foundation for a strong future - anything else IS ABNORMAL.
I will support YOUR STRUGGLE - when YOU finish BUILDING UP MY PEOPLE - as you had promised when you collected their valuables.
