KEW GARDENS HILLS, November 10, 2008— Moral voters in Arizona, California and Florida were wished the deepest gratitude and best success by Zeh Journal, a publication for people concerned with decency, morality and religion. Zeh congratulated moral voters who placed marriage in a protected place in their state Constitutions, the one document through which all state power is derived, in a victory that strengthened the nation as a whole.
Special thanks were extended to the donors and volunteers of all walks of life who worked to dispel confusion about the complementary roles of “man” and “woman” in the social unit of marriage. The victory for marriage strengthens the nation’s understanding that all people share the responsibility to use their bodies not only for their own pleasure, but to contribute to the legacy of society for generations to come.
These three states joined the ranks of 30 nationwide that define marriage in their constitutions, and dealt a sharp rebuke to the claim that it was “just a matter of time” before the corruption of “same-sex marriage” would overtake the nation. Moral voters are lauded for acting on the voice of conscience that gives life to the image of Gd in man, rejecting the instructions of liberal leaders, at the very same time that they elected Democrats to the White House, U.S. Senate and House, as well as state legislatures and governorships.
Recognition is also paid to the opponents of Proposition 8 in California, whose poor taste, muddled logic and overblown actions reminded decent voters across the nation why democracy must be zealously guarded from extremists. In particular, Zeh recaps the spectacle of the California Proposition 8 circus to pay special attention to the following:
Steven Spielberg, the King of Hollywood, whose foray into off-color propaganda films supporting same-sex marriage proved how natural talent and accomplishment can be squandered when misdirected, like the baseball career of Michael Jordan;
Google and Apple, technology giants, who proved that making tons of money on machines that organize information, grants them no authority to dictate morality;
Ellen DeGeneres, who allowed her same-sex marriage partner to keep her maiden name, thereby avoiding the claim that same-sex marriage would spread DeGeneres-y;
Senator Dianne Feinstein, whose disingenuous plea that “it’s about discrimination and we must always say no to that,” allowed voters to prove that they elect leaders to represent their values, not to scold them;
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who turned from crying to the Federal government to save his state from economic collapse, to reaffirm his faith that he could find enough tax dollars to grant benefits to 18,000 new same-sex spouses. Governor Schwarzenegger twisted his position on same-sex marriage like a Cirque de Soleil performer, and manhandled the legal issues with the low-brow claim that there was no difference between blacks and homosexuals;
Unethical medical practitioners, who resurrected the spirit of the rotten Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele, when they perverted their art to serve political ends, creating monsters like the freakish Oregon “pregnant man” and dubious studies on the “brain structure” of homosexuals, dragging the discredited pseudo-science of phrenology from the wastebasket of history;
And lastly, all those who took part in the angry, violent protests following a popular vote against same-sex marriage, which reminded the rest of the country why the root of the word “sodomy” is related to “sadism.” The desire to be “equal” through “same-sex marriage” has as much to do with civil rights as the term “gay” means “to be happy.”
Civil rights laws protect against discrimination on the basis of arbitrary criteria such as race, sex, age, and nationality, while the category of “homosexual” is defined entirely by a person’s willful behavior. States have full authority to discourage conduct that destroys the moral fiber of its citizens, such as zoning laws for strip clubs and criminal penalties for drug possession.
