Stephanie Coontz A protester in New York City after the recent passage of Proposition 8 in California, limiting the marriage rights of same-sex couples in that state. Same sex couples across the country and around the world are asking for the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples. For those who oppose gay marriage, allowing same-sex couples the same legal rights as heterosexual couples amounts to nothing less than a revolution in the institution of marriage and the family. This month, historian Stephanie Coontz puts the desire for same-sex marriage into some intriguing historical perspective.
Dresden Berns 15 Comments Historically, Communism began with the Jewish social philosopher, Karl Marx real name Moses Mordecai Levybut demonstrably begins with the advent of the universal, collectivist teachings of Judeo-Christianity.
Like Communists, Christians seek to spread themselves and their institutions up and over all the nations of the world, without regard for frontiers, borders, race, or culture. Christians insist that all the various and vastly different peoples on earth should sacrifice their native beliefs and traditions for an uncompromising, dogmatic, and most of all, alien ideology.
For as Paul put it in Galatians 3: There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Differences of age and sex have no longer any distinctive social validity for the working class.
The impractical and suicidal ideals of Jesus tell us to pursue a false dichotomy, to sacrifice our earthly existence in exchange for the prospect of an enjoyable afterlife. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Then come, follow me. Not to suggest there is anything inherently wrong with government aid, but its only purpose is to prevent immediate death and starvation until self-sufficiency can be achieved; not sustain a host and parasite relationship as it does today.
Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. False Socialism The sole purpose of genuine Socialism is to bring up the laboring class, the blue-collar worker to greater heights — with a hospitable work environment, fair pay, and reverence for his contribution to society.
The underrated social status of the manual laborer trapped in the cracks of the Capitalist system, a system in which countrymen come second to production and profit, is the exact reason why the allure of Communism appealed to the working man.
It draws upon his desperation, and it channels and nurtures his rightful contempt for his superiors. But, rather than harmonizing the lower and upper stratums of society by representing each social class equally, Communism heaves the lower class against the upper class like cannon fodder, demolishing the possibility of a brotherly reconciliation.
Stoking the flames of social unrest, the Commissars incite class warfare and then provide a misleading solution — the proposal of a class structure, which guarantees an eternal reservation at the very position the lower class seeks to graduate; which is the amalgamation of social classes into one, subordinated under the State.
In the end, a cruel aristocracy is never revoked the right to exploit the subservient, but rather the new aristocracy becomes the State. The intention of Communism is not to create a brotherhood of man or an economic structure that ameliorates the lives of the exploited.
The aim of Communism is to create slaves out of nations that the Commissars can then lord over. Their ambition was not to reconcile the disproportionate divide between the employee and the employer, or peacefully resolve the class struggle waged between them, but rather their remedy was to mass slaughter the aristocracy, including the Tsar of Russia and his entire family.
Grigori Zinoviev, a lead Commissar who spoke at a meeting of Communists in Septembereffectively pronounced a death sentence on ten million human beings: As for the rest, we have nothing to say to them. They must be annihilated.
A very telling article written by Winston Churchill titled, Zionism Versus Bolshevismpublished in the Sunday Herald, February 8th,reveals the Jewish role in the international spread of Communism. There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews.
It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky RussiaBela Kun HungaryRosa Luxembourg Germanyand Emma Goldman United Statesthis world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.
It played, as a modern writer, Mrs.Evolutionists bristle at the accusation that Evolution is ‘just a theory,’ not a fact. Indeed, this is the very first example of ‘creationist nonsense’ that Scientific American lists and answers in its ‘15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense.’ 1.
Evolution is . The demand that society legally recognize same-sex marriages is often called revolutionary. And so it is, but not in the way most people assume. "The category of same-sex sexuality becomes very diffuse when you take a multicultural perspective," says Joan Roughgarden, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Hawaii.
A look at some of the literature presenting interesting or unique lines of evidence for evolution. Cichlid fish, sexual selection, sperm competition, and endosymbiosis are but a few of the topics discussed. The Evolution of Same-Sex Acceptance.

Gay marriage is a relatively new concept that has taken wind in the last decade. Charles Darwin was born in , seven years after his grandfather Erasmus had died.
Charles grew up during a conservative period in British and American society, shortly after the Napoleonic Wars.
