The Bullies Won

I do not hate anyone. (It seems silly to have to preface my remarks with that statement but these are strange times.)  I do hate bad behavior.  That includes lying, name-calling, intimidation and bullying which have become hallmarks of gay rights activists.

Last week, the Boy Scouts of America abandoned the time-honored principles enshrined in the oath and laws and gave in to these bullies when leadership skillfully manipulated its voting delegates to approve a resolution to admit openly gay Scouts into its ranks.  

The oath includes a “duty to God” and a pledge to keep oneself “morally straight.”  The laws proclaim that a Scout is — among other things — obedient, reverent, loyal and brave.  The BSA leadership is none of the above.  Therefore, the Scouts’ ability to lead young boys to become responsible God-fearing young men with these qualities has been hopelessly compromised.  

Adolf Hitler introduced the principle of winning the battle of the mind with the “Big Lie.” in his book “Mein Kampf.”

“ . . . the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention.  It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.  Here, as so often in the world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”

The Big Lie as practiced by gay rights activists:

  • Homosexuality is not a choice.  One is born that way.
  • Homosexuality is normal and natural for these individuals.
  • If you have any of these feelings you should embrace them.
  • If you do not agree with the a above statements, you are displaying homophobic behavior(fear of homosexuals)
  • And therefore discriminate against gay individuals.

No one likes to be accused of discrimination or to be called names, which is part and parcel of the bullying process.  However, to cave in to bullies is not bravery, it is cowardice.  

I would be the first to admit that some people are “born gay” if there were scientific evidence to support such a claim.  There is not!

Some people (a tiny fraction of a percent) are born with physical abnormalities which might predispose one to that lifestyle.  These cases are 100 percent correctable.  It often involves something as simple as hormone treatment.  

In most cases, however, homosexuality is connected to a bad home environment with an absent father and/or domineering mother, sexual molestation or  — more common today — something call imprinting (first sexual experience).  

Several years ago, when homosexuality was first being introduced into the classroom, a teacher called my radio program to express support for my position that this was improper.  Then, she told me that she was a lesbian and it took her years to accept this about her life.  

I said, “Tell me honestly.  Was your first sexual encounter with someone of the same sex?”

There was a long silence.  Then she said haltingly, “I was very young.”

“How young, were you honey?”  I asked.

“I was 10 and the other girl was 12,” she said in a quivering voice barely above a whisper.

The story of how homosexuality was declared normal by the American Psychiatric Association is one of the most disturbing in modern medicine.  In 1973, the APA took homosexuality out of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, not because of any new discovery, but because — like the Boy Scouts — it got tired of the bullying by gay activists.

There were several books written about these close encounters.  A detailed account can be found in a highly sympathetic book by Ronald Bayer, Homosexuality and American Psychiatry:  The politics of Diagnosis.

It was shouting matches and guerrilla tactics that were used to break up APA meetings that caused the change, not science.   The American Psychological Association quickly followed suit.  In the years that followed, these professional trade associations went about eliminating all who voiced concerns that went counter to the gay line.

The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) is now the only truly scientific professional organization for therapists.   Although efforts have been made to discredit NARTH by trying to link it to various religious organizations, NARTH is a secular organization dedicated to presenting the truth and offering hope and referrals to those who struggle with unwanted homosexuality.  

NARTH provides useful research and provided some to the Boy Scouts.  Unfortunately, it was ignored by the BSA leadership which was more interested in corporate dollars than truth.

Thankfully, plans are being made to offer boys a scouting alternative much the way American Heritage Girls filled the void when the Girl Scouts decided to play God instead of honoring Him.

  1. In a single column, you have spread many lies. To start, narth is nothing more than a hate group which spreads anti gay propaganda at every chance. They have no peeer reviewed studies to support their lies other than those doen by biased organizations. Also, I would like to see any evidence you have to back up your claims that homosexuality is a choice, not normal, and that those with homosexual feelings shouldnt embrace them. I’ll help you out, there is none. You should be ashamed of spreading the propaganda of the religious right. Sad.

  2. Not much of a lawyer are you? You call this bullying? Sounds like you and the christian right have no need for civil discourse but instead revert to spreading the lies indoctrinated into you from birth. I asked for simple proof of your lies but as usual….nothing… I rest MY case.

  3. Obviously from the two comments above, The Big Lie still remains an effective method of persuasion. The caving in of the BSA to continuous pressure and the several dollar signs ($$$$) that dominated their decision is a national disgrace.

    Thanks for an excellent article and for your bravery in writing it. Why do they (homosexuals) allow their bedroom behavior to dominate all aspects of their lives? My comment to these pathetically misled people is refocus and get a life!

  4. Homosexuality has been with this old world a long time and will continue to be so. The current use of the designation is to separate the electorate. The Dem’s agenda is to make the Republicans appear to hate your group, be it gay, black, Hispanic, female, etc. That is the only way they can win elections, certainly not on the merits of their tax and spend philosophy.
    We must continue to push to get our America back from these liberals, trial lawyers and people who are on the dole.
    Bengazi, the IRS tactics, suppression of the free press, arms control, etc must be the issues, not how bad republicans hate what group.

  5. I hope you’re not surprised that so many people think of Christians as jerks. Because so many of them, like you, never focus on the true challenges presented by Christianity or the pursuit of a compassionate and loving life, and that’s to simply be kind and accepting. Instead, you glom onto a few nebulously translated sentences written 2,400 to 3,400 years ago by confused fanatics you’d probably despise if you’d actually known them, then devote your lives to bashing anyone who doesn’t live by your rules. God is bigger than this. So is love. Jesus would shudder to know that the promise his message brought to the world has been completely pushed aside by people like you and “Warren”.

    Maybe the simplest way to look at the situation is that people just aren’t interested in your brand of “morality” anymore. You’ve lost. It’s no longer okay to turn away anyone at the door. I don’t see you as “morally straight” at all. I see you as mean and small, and totally lacking in the vision god hopefully gave you.

    When there’s war, cruelty, barbarity and senseless causes of pain, it doesn’t matter whom you’re attracted to or who you fall in love with.

    Forget your “science” and look within. You say you don’t hate? Then why does it look so much like do, and that you’ve dedicated your life to your hate? Why do you only fight against people? There’s no love in you, only the opposite.

  6. Oh, please! Don’t pull that antiquated ‘absent father/domineering mother’ crap. I heard that almost 30 years ago when my son came out and I was foolishly looking for someone or something to blame. I’m older and wiser now. My husband and I raised four wonderful kids – now adults – good people all – deserving of our love and pride.

  7. Whenever you preface your comments by stating that you don’t hate people … then you state your preference to exclude a group of people from a civic organization …. guess what! You hate people.

    You sound like one of those folks who impotently attempt to mask their hatred by saying you hate the sin, but love the sinner.

    It looks to me, when it comes to homosexuality, your religious faith inspires you to hate both the sin and the sinner.
