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.
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
6 “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, 2 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. 3 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.’
4 “Hear, O Israel: [b]The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 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. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 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?
