All that is necessary for the triumph of the same sex agenda is that good men do nothing. The fear of reprisal, both materially and physically, can cause good men to do nothing.
Having not experienced this form of intimidation, I am still disturbed by the tactics that are utilized by the more militant arm of the same sex marriage agenda. This exposure to such violence is almost non-existent for me.
Being not so young anymore and not so old I have never witnessed the violence that engulfed America during the 1960s. The turbulent 1968 Democratic National Convention to the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr was something I never experienced.
What I did experience was while viewing in 1981 the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, not to mention having to watch over and over again in 1985 the snapping of Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann’s leg in two. Both incidents left me cringing at the television set at the worst moments of the telecast.
Fast forward to November 2008 right after Proposition 8 was passed I was disturbed beyond words. Watching the anger and hate in the eyes of the same sex proponents intimidating those they oppose. Whether verbal or physical, it disturbed me enough that I pulled the infamous crucifix stomping video by gay advocates from my personal blog site.
Why the violence from same sex proponents?
I don’t know and can only speculate the reasons why.
What we, those that are pro-life and pro-family can do, especially Catholics, is pray.
We need to pull out our weapon of mass conversion, the Holy Rosary and pray for the proponents of the same sex marriage agenda.
We need to continue to selflessly and patiently endure these attacks.
We need only to reflect on the many martyrs and saints that were thrown to the lions in the Flavian Amphitheatre. How they persevered with quiet confidence for their love of Jesus while being viciously persecuted in front of the crowds.
We too must continue our witness and accept them with respect, compassion, and sensitivity (CCC 2358 cf.).
Defeat them with love for they know not what they do (Lk 23:34 cf.).
We will not do nothing.
