Perhaps we need a new American Revolution to defend marriage: author

Robert R. Reilly has penned one of the most important books on same-sex ‘marriage’ to date, yet the book has seen little coverage even from conservative media. Making Gay Okay, published by Ignatius Press earlier this year, has answered how and why the movement for gay “marriage” has swept America and the only way to defeat it – a way that has been largely ignored, with predictable results.

In an interview with LifeSiteNews, Reilly, who served as senior advisor for information strategy for the U.S. Secretary of Defense from 2002 to 2006 and has taught at the National Defense University, noted with wit that the most immediate cause of the current situation in America was “the sexual revolution in the 1960s that separated sex from diapers.”

“If heterosexuals can rationalize their sexual misbehavior, why can’t homosexuals rationalize theirs?” he said. “The deeper cause has been the overthrow of the ‘Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God’ as a source of moral meaning.”

A key element in the erosion of traditional marriage is the notion that ‘rights’ are now being created by the state, rather than coming from nature. “Once Nature is removed as the moral authority, you can declare anything equal to anything else – because it is simply based upon will,” Reilly told LifeSiteNews. “In order to defeat it,” he said, “we have to show that rights come from Nature, not the state, and that sodomy is unnatural.”

Reilly warned that despite the fact that same-sex “marriage” has transformed our courts, schools, military, civic institutions, and diplomacy, the new ideology “now is only beginning to exercise its hegemony.” 

“The phase of enforcement has begun,” said Reilly.  “How can our society remain sane and accept these new rulings? This reminds me of Germany in 1935 with the passage of the racist Nuremberg laws. No doubt, there were still many fine and moral people in Germany, but for the most part they acceded to the pseudoscientific, racist dictates of the Nazi regime. The denial of reality in which we are now involved is just as profound.”

For all this though, Reilly, who as a young man served in the White House as a special assistant to President Ronald Reagan, is confident of eventual victory.  “Reality always wins in the end,” he said.

But the road to that eventual victory will not be easy. Reilly suggests it may even take “a new American Revolution.”

“It can be a peaceful one, but it requires resistance and recovery,” he said.

 I think the word he is looking for is "Religious". "Religious Revolution". Either way this is dumb.

 Instead of trying to control everyone through rants and Blogs and possible "Revolution" , why doesn't this guy allow everyone the ability to THINK for themselves and choose whether or not marry someone of the same sex? Looks like he goes with the myths and the belief in Satan instead of using his brain and believing in  science. ( Ohhh, science. That's what those government schools teach)

 Candle, if you don't approve of homosexuals and think same sex marriage is wrong, don't marry a woman and carefully monitor the surroundings ,watching for gays, every time you leave home. Maybe you won't even have to SEE a gay or lesbian.  Simple as that.

But just stop trying to shame Americans into behaving the way you want them to with all that talk of "satan" and immorality .

If your marriage is threatened by gay marriage, then there is already a problem with your marriage.  SSM has been legal for 10 years in my state.  My marriage remains just fine and dandy, thanks.

Lmao at nature as a moral authority. He just thought it would get him farther than saying "God". If you viewed nature in terms of good and bad, nature is fucking evil.

I think that's a ridiculous notion.

I wish we had pushed more for a civil union, with the same rights and protections.

Well, since gay people are born gay, it's perfectly NATURAL for them to love each other, and to want to fully and openly express that love.  I'm all for bringing nature in and moving religion out.
