disturbing seeds

I got this book in the mail a few days ago and have so far read137/348. This is not the official review but a partway-through debrief.

Some thoughts:
1. This is the kind of book which, once you’ve read it:

  • you wish you didn’t know the stuff it says
  • because now you can no longer plead innocence
  • but instead are forced to make a decision on taking action or continuing on in conscious denial.

2. Who should read this book:

  • everyone with kids or grandkids of school age.
  • people who have felt a chill in the air re traditional values on many fronts and have wondered how the atmosphere changed to quickly.
  • Canadians who feel the move to redefine marriage in Canada is simply society’s natural and organic evolution. This book shows how orchestrated these changes are (Ch. 19 "The Homosexual Manifesto" – and see *footnote quote below)
  • people who are thinking of wading into this fray, so they realize without an undergirding of prayer and the protection of the blood of Jesus, this fight could be dangerous to their health (Ch. 18 - "Intimidation").

*footnote quote

In checking on some of the quotes in Georgiana Preskar’s book re gay marriage topic, I came across this article from New Zealand’s Investigate Magazine - April 2004. I quote from the middle section:

For example, Patti Ettelbrick, former leader of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund says: "Being queer is more than setting up house, sleeping with a person of the same gender, and seeking state approval for doing so. Being queer means pushing the parameters of sex and sexuality, and in the process transforming the very fabric of society."

Michelangelo Signorile, homosexual activist and writer argues that the goal of homosexuality is to: "fight for same-sex marriage and its benefits and then, once granted, redefine the institution of marriage completely, to demand the right to marry, not as a way of adhering to society’’s moral codes, but rather to debunk a myth and radically alter an archaic institution. The most subversive action lesbians and gay men can undertake, is to transform the notion of ‘‘family’’ entirely."[...]

Recall how the media poked fun at Stephen Harper for suggesting gay marriage would lead to polygamy. Read the following – and go figure...

Which brings us to the concept of polyamory. Once civil unions and marriage between same-sex couples are legalized, it could be argued that limiting the relationship to two people is discriminatory. Since the procreation and rearing of children by a mother and father, is no longer recognized by the state as a preferred relationship, or for the greater good of society, there is no reason apart from convention to limit the union to two people.

Stanley Kurtz, writing in the Weekly Standard (August 4th, 2003) "Beyond Gay Marriage: the road to polyamory", predicts that marriage will be transformed into a variety of relationship contracts, linking two, three, or more individuals, in every conceivable combination of male and female. Polyamory is about group marriage, and already in the United States, a network of grass-roots organizations advocating legal recognition, is being supported by a powerful faction of family law specialists.

"Influential legal bodies in both the United States and Canada, have presented radical programs of marital reform. Some of these proposals go so far as to suggest the abolition of marriage."Kurtz says that the modern polyamory movement took off in the mid-nineties, partly because of the growth of the Internet, but also in parallel and inspired by the rising gay marriage movement.

"Unlike classic polygamy, which features one man and several women, polyamory comprises a bewildering variety of sexual combinations. There are triads of one women and two men, heterosexual group marriages, groups in which all members are bisexual, lesbian groups and so forth. (For details, see Deborah Anapol’’s "Polyamory: the New Love Without Limits", or look up the word polyamory on Google.)"[...]

An astute commenter asks: "...who and where in the U.S. did you get this information?"

The following are some of the articles from the 'notes' section of Seeds of Deception Chapter 19 "Homosexual Manifesto." They are U.S. articles.
