The slow burn.
For more years than I would like to count, America has been drifting to the left. I began to notice around 1988 when CNN started to substitute the term “homosexual” with the term “gay”. I recognized it for what it was then; an agenda driven initiative to retire a clinical term describing a human condition draped with negative connotations and replace it with a happy word in an effort to make the condition more mentally acceptable for the public. In other words, it was then and still is today an effort to make an abnormal state a normal one. It’s a form of subversion and it is still in operation today.
For a more recent example take a look at the opposition to California’s Proposition 8 which changed the state’s constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to opposite-sex couples and eliminated the right for same-sex couples to marry. It is a wise attempt to stop a small but determined sub-culture of homosexuals who want to undermine a core value of this country that a marriage is between a man and a woman which in an of itself is designed to solidify a healthy environment in which children can be properly raised under the influence of a normal environment. For those who want to take issue with “normalcy” please refer to Sociology 101.
