Alan Keyes: Gay Marriage Is ‘A Social Weapon Of Mass Destruction’
Ambassador Keyes continues to rail against gays, the latest effort being in a Saturday column. He says couples have an obligation to procreate.
But what natural obligation is involved in homosexual relations? Even if, for argument’s sake, one accepts the absurd view that the human individual’s natural desire for sensual pleasure constitutes a law of nature, humanly speaking, by what reasoning could we reach the conclusion that this imperative of individual pleasure is equal or superior to the natural obligation of procreation? The latter serves and preserves helpless individual humans in their infancy. It also cultivates a capacity for self-sacrifice that contributes to the preservation of the species in innumerable ways, like providing the emotional touchstone of respect for the requirements of human social life. All of this tends to preserve humanity, in the moral as well as physical sense, from extinction. – See more at: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/keyes-gay-marriage-social-weapon-mass-destruction#sthash.3XRQbjcN.dpuf
