Overview

Why are Americans being forced to consider homosexual acts as morally acceptable? Why has the US Supreme Court accepted the validity of same-sex "marriage", which, until a decade ago, was unheard of in the history of Western or any other civilization? Where has the "gay rights" movement come from, and how has it so easily conquered America?

The answers are in the dynamics of the rationalization of sexual misbehavior. The power of rationalization-the means by which one mentally transforms wrong into right-drives the gay rights movement, gives it its revolutionary character, and makes its advocates indefatigable. The homosexual cause moved naturally from a plea for tolerance to cultural conquest because the security of its rationalization requires universal acceptance. In other words, we all must say that the bad is good.

At stake in the rationalization of homosexual behavior is the notion that human beings are ordered to a purpose that is given by their Nature. The understanding that things have an in-built purpose is being replaced by the idea that everything is subject to man's will and power, which is considered to be without limits. This is what the debate over homosexuality is really about-the Nature of reality itself.

The outcome of this dispute will have consequences that reach far beyond the issue at hand. Already America's major institutions have been transformed-its courts, its schools, its military, its civic institutions, and even its diplomacy. The further institutionalization of homosexuality will mean the triumph of force over reason, thus undermining the very foundations of the American Republic.

    Also bought and read this book. Contrary to the misinformed 1st Anonymous "review", this is not any kind of "rant", and the author is not a Religious Extremist. It is a thoughful analysis and argument made entirely on anthropological and philosophical reason and logic, without recourse to any religious tenents.

    This is a great book,easy to follow, and logically written. I found it to be non discrimanatory, but, I can see how any homosexual, or liberal extremist would find this book biased against them, as opposed to informative, an enlightening on the social/moral disasters that are yet to come, due to the rationalization of abnormal behavior.

    Utter claptrap. It's a tragedy that people will actually believe

    Utter claptrap. It's a tragedy that people will actually believe this nonsense.

    Amongst other idiotic claims, Reilly states:

    "Legally, a class can be determined only by accident of birth, by such traits as race or sex."

    ROFL!!

    Of course, Reilly has completely forgotten about religion -- which is a choice. Thousands (millions?) of people choose to convert every year.

    According to Reilly's claim, we should remove all protections from religion.

    Sound good to you?? ;-D

    Reilly also claims:

    "Likewise, even if homosexuality is an immutable characteristic, what distinguishes homosexuals is their sexual activity."

    Ummm, NO. What distinguishes homosexuals is their ATTRACTION -- their ORIENTATION -- not their activity. Celibate or virgin homosexuals are still homosexual, just as celibate or virgin heterosexuals are still heterosexual.

    Unless Reilly wishes to claim that celibate heterosexuals are somehow less than straight?

    LOL.

    That's only two examples of the many laugh-out-loud moments in this book.

    And then we have Reilly's Natural Law argument.

    Reilly says:

    "Nature is what is, regardless of what anyone desires or abhors. We are part of it and subject to it. We do not make Nature. It is not subject to us. It is the given. We shall see how, once the objective status of Nature is lost or denied, we are incapacitated from possessing any true knowledge about ourselves and about how we are to relate to the world. .... It is at the heart and soul of these issues."

    Of course, Reilly completely ignores the fact that homosexual behaviors and bonding are completely natural.

    Many animals out in nature practice homosexual behaviors and bonding. Therefore, by definition, homosexual behaviors and bonding are natural. QED.

    By Reilly's own argument, then, he is "incapacitated from possessing any true knowledge", because he is ignoring nature.

    Reilly fails on all fronts.

    Reilly's "facts and statistics" are misused, miscited, misinterpreted, and/or completely fraudulent numbers that don't actually support the claims he's trying to make. And his "logic" is nonsense. If you're interested in some more specific rebuttals, just ask -- they'd take up much too much space to post them all here.

    This idiotic nonsense is clearly the rantings of a Religious Extremist and not worth your time. The arguments are tired and baseless.
