VOTING FOR FORNICATION IN PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY — THE SEQUEL

The rainbow flag, commonly known as the gay pride flag or LGBT pride flag, is a symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) pride and LGBT social movements. Here is what the colors supposedly mean. (from here)

On Monday I put out a warning: VOTING FOR FORNICATION IN PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY. That was about an item (in Item 11) on the June 26th agenda for the Prince County Board of County Supervisors (BOCS).

E. RES – MOVED FROM CONSENT: Proclaim – Month of June – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and More Pride Month – Supervisor Principi

Unfortunately, the BOCS passed the resolution by a 5 – 3 vote. Please thank Chairman At-Large: Corey A. Stewart, Brentsville District Supervisor: Jeanine M. Lawson, and Occoquan District Supervisor: Ruth M. Anderson for voting against it.

Why did the BOCS pass this resolution? Since it unnecessarily puts the government in the position of supporting behavior many find horrid, those voting against resolution saw it as divisive. Those voting for the resolution thought otherwise. See the resolution: Month of June – Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and More Pride Month.

Anyway, I showed up at the meeting. Like a bunch of other concerned citizens, after I introduced myself, thanked the BOCS for the opportunity to speak, and identified the subject, I made a short speech. Here it is.

What is the problem with this resolution? Does it really make any sense for government officials to encourage people to strut their stuff, especially people with sex related behavioral disorders? The LGBTQ and more “community” claim they cannot help themselves, that they are just the way they are. Well, if that were true they would not be complete human beings. I don’t believe that is true. If it is, that is nothing to applaud.

One of the things that distinguishes a human being is the fact we can override our instincts. In fact, most of our behavior is learned. Yet the LGBTQ and more “community” claims to lack self control, and they want the rest of us to share the pride in this fact. We are suppose to applaud lack self control?

Let’s back up a bit. For the sake of argument, let’s take the LGBTQ and more “community” at their word. Nature just messed up their sexual instincts. When nature messes up that way, we ordinarily consider that a genetic disorder. Even Darwin would tell us that the aim of any species is to procreate…to continue the bloodline…that the species continues. Same-sex attraction within a species makes that continuation of that species impossible….so those members of the species who are same-sex attracted are an anomaly…an example of a something that is broken or defective. When someone is born with Down syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Cystic fibrosis or some such thing, do we celebrate the disorder? No, we celebrate the courage of people who strive to overcome the obstacles posed by the disorder, and we celebrate the successes of those seeking cures. We don’t fool sick people and ourselves by taking pride in anyone’s disorder.

This resolution is a sick joke on very foolish people. Please vote it down.

Since I thought her observations spot-on, I borrowed from Julie (aka Cookie)‘s comment here.

Note the absence of religious content in my statement. Many of the speakers against the resolution cited Bible passages.  Those in favor of the resolution tried to counter that by stating we are a secular society. The implication is that there is no “secular reason” to oppose the resolution. Yet the practices of the LGBTQ and more “community” are defective even by secular standards. That’s why the Nazis, unrestrained by Christian beliefs, persecuted homosexuals.

So why did the BOCS pass this resolution? When we expect our leaders to teach and uphold high moral standards, we expect too much.  High moral standards have to come from the People, not their leaders. That’s why the Bible puts parents, not government, in charge of educating children.

Deuteronomy 6:1-9 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Greatest Commandment

“Now this is the commandment, and these are the statutes and judgments which the Lord your God has commanded to teach you, that you may observe them in the land which you are crossing over to possess, that you may fear the Lord your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged. Therefore hear, O Israel, and [a]be careful to observe it, that it may be well with you, and that you may multiply greatly as the Lord God of your fathers has promised you—‘a land flowing with milk and honey.’

“Hear, O Israel: [b]The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

When politicians run for office, they have a practical problem. We are much more ready to vote against them than we are to vote for them. That is why the Liberal Democrat’s promotion of identity politics has worked fairly well for them. If people can be convinced that their interests conform with some identity group, like the LGBTQ and more “community”, then they will tend to vote as single issue voters and against any politician who does not vote with their “community”.

Consider the absurdity. Liberal Democrats want both Jews and Muslims to vote as identity groups protected by their party. Yet Muslims are notoriously biased against Jews, and when we set out to divide people into identity groups, we just worsen such problems.

One of the funniest moments occurred when the supervisors were debating the resolution.  Supervisor Lawson questioned Woodbridge District Supervisor: Frank J. Principi, asking him for an explanation of the “more” in the phrase “LGBTQ and more”. Principi obviously did not know how to answer. After making that clear, Lawson graciously let the subject drop. But think about it. More what? Just how sexually perverted is this “more”?

In addition, Lawson questioned Principi about the application of this resolution. Would it be used as an excuse to introduce the subject of LGBTQ and more into our public school system? Principi danced about the question, but considering the way the resolution is written and the fact the Prince William County school system receives much of its funding from the BOCS, the answer is obvious. Given such an obvious invitation, what else can we expect from a Democrat majority school board?

Add yours

  1. Just curious, What political party were the yes supporters vs. the no nonsupporters of the resolution?

    As for your speech, hope you do not have a bunch of people confront you if you go out to eat. Your question about will passing the resolution effect school children was a valid concern, in my opinion.

    In Chicago, the gay parade in June draws a lot of young people to the parade.

    Not sure if they go to support the gays, or laugh at their costumes and antics.

      Republicans voted against the resolution. We still have a majority Republican Board, but a several Republicans voted with the two Democrats.

      One of those Republicans may as well be a Democrat. The other two puzzle me, but not too much.

      Jesus was full of both truth and grace. Those who hated Him did so because they hated the truth. Each of us to some degree hates the truth. Each of us to some degree fears to speak the truth because we fear to be hated. We fear the peril that standing for Jesus brings.

      Matthew 10:34-39 New King James Version (NKJV)
      Christ Brings Division

      34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set[a] a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.

      Nobody bothered me.

  2. sad to read this Tom…the passing of this is typical of the sad days in which we find ourselves living.
    I am flattered you wanted to add in a few of my thoughts.
    When I was still in the classroom…6 years by this past May…things were just ramping up as far as schools and an LGBT agenda were concerned…or so was the case in our smaller corner of the world.

    The Darwin take was always my argument with my kids who would bring it up and want to debate. I wouldn’t use Biblical arguments as they would readily dismiss those.

    So it seemed to me to be a matter of simple biology.

    That whole notion of the survival of the fittest.

    You don’t survive if the gene pool is weak or subpar.
    And you don’t survive is the species remains same-sex attraction dominate…

    Same-sex attraction is, therefore, inferior in terms of basic biology.
    There is no continuation of a species with same-sex attraction…it’s as simple as that.

    But of course, in the ever-evolving minds of human beings, there are ways of getting around that little loophole. I think we call those surrogate carriers and sperm banks and frozen embryos…

    But new science doesn’t make an obvious fact any more right than trying to put new wine in old skins…something eventually gives way…

    1. What is sad is how readily children have been taught to dismiss the Bible, that it is not even worth studying. So, of course, they don’t actually know what it is that they are dismissing. Such a thing is actually quite evil, not because it is the Bible they are dismissing, but because in their arrogance they dismiss those who do believe without bothering to learn why they believe.
