Redefinition shenanigans

Is homosexuality a choice? Joseph Farah answers:

Yes, homosexuality is a choice because homosexuality manifests itself in behavior—sexual behavior. No one would suggest, for instance, that adultery is not a choice. That’s because even though many men may be inclined toward adulterous behavior, only some yield to the temptation. Same with women.

Ditto.

We’re not animals. God gave us a conscience so we’re not captives of our flesh. Restricting sex through marriage disciplines man to master the primitive instinct to breed. It is an unevolved, amoral view of man that his sexual destiny is written in the stars while he’s in the womb, contrary to everything we know about how we develop and how behavior runs upstream to form our character.

Marriage is about compromise, sacrifice. It is not reconfigured for every person to quench what its intent is to quell.

Would you attend a gay wedding, you hateful bigot?

Ted Cruz answers:

Well, I will tell you I haven’t faced that circumstance; I have not had a loved one have a gay wedding... the media tries to twist the question of marriage into a battle of emotions and personalities... “Gosh, any conservative must hate people who are gay!” As you know, that has nothing to do with the operative legal question...

I’m a Christian, and Scripture commands us to love everyone, and all of us are sinners. But the legal question—I’m a constitutionalist—and under the Constitution, from the beginning of this country, marriage has been a question for the states. It has been a question for elected legislatures in each of the 50 states...

What we’ve seen in recent years from the left is the federal government and unelected federal judges imposing their own policy preferences to tear down the marriage laws of the states. So if someone is running for public office, it is perfectly legitimate to ask them their views on whether they’re willing to defend the Constitution, which leaves marriage to the states, or whether they want to impose their own extreme policy views like some on the left are doing—like Barack Obama does, like Hillary Clinton does.”

What does it say about Republican presidential candidates who don’t see liberals are trying to flank them with questions like this? I’ll answer: It says they don’t know their enemy.

Don’t try to give them reasons to like you. They’ll hate you anyway.
