Rainbows, the word gay, and the color pink; these are just a few of the things that militant homosexual activists have stolen from the mainstream culture and remade in their own image. Militant homosexual activists have just won another major battle in the culture war and this one is truly shocking.
U.S. passport applications filed this year will no longer identify parents as “Mother” and “Father” but as “Parent One” and “Parent Two.” With the stoke of a pen, the State Department has degraded marriage and parenthood to the level of Dr. Seuss’ “Thing One” and “Thing Two”.
According to the State Department, this epic change was made in order to:
provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.
Gender neutral? Last time I checked neutral genders didn’t produce babies. Unless there is some crazy, new, “Island of Dr. Moreau” kind of technology that I haven’t heard of, it STILL takes contributions from both the male and female genders to produce a child. I’m sorry to disappoint the militant activists, but you can perform any kind of word gymnastics you want, but two girls or two guys, even if they are in a “committed and loving relationship” can not produce a child; even if it’s in a test tube.
Ultimately, this is an attack on the institution of marriage. The State Department is playing the role of useful idiot for the militant homosexual agenda. These activists have coveted the title of “married” as validation for their lifestyle. “Domestic partnership” does not go far enough for the insatiable activist. It is clear that the militant homosexual community will not rest until they are recognized as equal participants in the institution of marriage.
This is another example of turning the meaning of a word on its head in order to force an agenda. Marriage, also known as matrimony, stems from the Latin words “matris” and “monium” which literally translates to “the office of mother.” According to the definition, it is impossible for homosexual couples to be married because their union can not produce children. Rather than accept this reality, militant homosexual activists have decided to change the definition of the word to meet their purpose.
‘Changing the term mother and father to the more global term of parent allows many different types of families to be able to go and apply for a passport for their child without feeling like the government doesn’t recognize their family,’ said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council.
The State Department is undermining the already crumbling institution of marriage with this Progressive style attack. They are openly pushing the agenda of a special interest group through the use of Orwellian “new-speak.”
I long for the days when a rainbow will again symbolize God’s promise to never destroy the world through flood, and marriage will mean the promise between a man and woman to welcome the children that complete their family. “Parent One” and “Parent Two” just like “Thing One” and “Thing Two” in Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” will cause nothing but trouble.
