---- — ‘Sexual anarchists’ await turn in court

I am amazed that any state in the Union has been able to progress since its beginning.

According to proponents of same-sex marriage, Indiana progress will be halted forever if the state cannot attract talented same-sex couples. Never mind that America is filled with millions of morally responsible individuals and couples eager to put their education, talents and experience to work in the multitude of businesses that this state has to offer.

I hope that proponents of same-sex marriage are aware of the additional forms of bizarre behavior that receive de facto support because of this drive to radically alter the definition of marriage.

There is the eradication of gender distinctions in restrooms, locker and shower facilities. There are those who advocate the recognition of multiple partner marriages. There are those, such as the “Freedom to Marry Pets Society,” who advocate changing the definition of marriage to include pets. There are advocates for marriage between family members.

The ultimate goal for sexual anarchists is the recognition of adult-child sexual relationships.

There are no doubt readers who are right now rejecting my conclusions and labeling me an alarmist. I wish that were true; however, there are long-standing organizations and individuals making preparations for their turn in court when the opportunities arrive.

Do we really believe that there will not be a judge who arises somewhere who will not one day give a favorable hearing? After all, it is a fairly simple matter to replace “same-sex” in the marriage arguments with any other preferred form of sexual anarchy.

I invite any same-sex marriage advocate to produce the arguments against recognizing marriage for some other group you do not like.

Gov’t believes taxes can solve any issue

The federal government wants to raise the taxes you pay for gasoline.

Why does it want to raise taxes?

Because the Bridge Fund is running out of money.

Why is the Bridge Fund running out of money?

Because you have not been funding it like you did in the past.

Why have you been shorting the Bridge Fund?

Because you are driving fewer miles and using more fuel-efficient modes of transportation.

Why are you driving less with lower mpg cars?

Because the federal government raises the taxes on gasoline.

Hmm. I’m starting to see a pattern here.

Your federal government believes any problem can be solved, if you just give it more money.

The government is the biggest business in the nation. It just isn’t very good at it!
