ACLU Talking points on legalizing homosexual marriage

from the Family Research Council
You need to read this document because in order to battle the attack on marriage effectively, you must know the enemy's strategy. And our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities. We love our misguided neighbors in the gay rights movement, we just want their corruption of the culture to stop, as we know who is behind all this.

Homosexual Activists Draw Battle Lines
A how-to manual for forcing same-sex "marriage" on all 50 states was just unleashed on the ACLU's website. The strategy, which was outlined in a succinct six-page memo called "Make Change, Not Lawsuits," urges couples who marry in California next week to proceed with caution. Homosexuals recognize that their movement to marry does not have the broad support of the American people. Instead of bringing lawsuits in every corner of the country, groups like the Human Rights Campaign, GLADD, Lambda Legal and others, ask homosexuals to wait for state legislatures to tackle the issue. To the question of whether couples should sue their home states and employers to recognize their unions, the memo says no. "[It] unnecessarily angers a public whose support we ultimately want to have... Bad rulings will make it much more difficult for us to win marriage, and it will certainly make it take much longer." Like us, this coalition recognizes that everything is riding on the California marriage amendment. This is one battle that both sides cannot afford to lose. Get involved in preserving marriage.

That we need to know the arguments used by those who oppose the moral law is a great point! We must also work to clarify our own position. When we use terms like, "traditional marriage," are we just saying that we want marriage to be the way it always was because that's the way it has always been? Catholics need to understand that marriage exists for the sake of children, and society exists because families work together to provide for their needs. Without procreation, marriage and society lose their true purpose.
