What baffles me concerning same-sex marriage is the total lack of any scientific evidence that homosexuality is a pre-birth condition and the judicial system treating heterosexuality and homosexuality as if they were the same as blue- or brown-eyedness. There are no “W” or “Z” chromosomes, no homosexual gene, no homosexual DNA sequence, no biochemical markers for homosexuality. On the other hand, history provides documentation of the development of homosexuals by human conditioning, particularly in the ancient Greek practice of pederasty and homosexual bodyguard military units, such as the Holy Band of Thebes.

Over the past few decades, any debate on the origins of homosexuality has been effectively squashed by the labeling of any opposition to the homosexual agenda as “hate speech” (words invented to stigmatize and stereotype). I am not a “homophobe,” but I do fear the tyranny of the homosexual agenda.

Heterosexual behavior is the norm; homosexuality is a deviance. Driving laws are not modified to accommodate alcoholics (there is no “alcoholic gene” either), so why do millennial-old marriage laws need to be modified to accommodate homosexuals?
