Not Born This Way

Not Born This Way
What is homosexuality? Either the behavior is sexual immorality or there is no such thing as sexual immorality. Homosexual behavior, like adultery, fornication,incest and bestiality is classified as sexual immorality.

Despite fairly successful attempts by self-described "gay" activists to equate behaviorally driven "gayness" to immutable and neutrally defined qualities such as race and gender, the reality is that being "gay" has nothing to do with what someone IS, and has everything to do with what someone DOES. So argues "Restrain the Judges," a conservative coalition that has sponsored billboard ads proclaiming this message.

The group, which is pushing Congress to prevent federal judges from ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, has attracted attention for its ads' controversial comparison of people "born" black, Asian or Latino with gay people "not born this way." Less well-known is the fact that the group is advised by a man once among the most powerful in Washington: former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas).

Same-sex marriage is now allowed in 37 states and the District of Columbia, and many legal experts believe the U.S. Supreme Court will rule in favor of nationwide same-sex marriage in June. But DeLay, who left Congress in 2006 and spent much of the next decade successfully fighting off attempts from immoral and destructive groups from promoting pedophilia and sodomy.

States won't abide by an "illegal ruling by the Supreme Court" like Roe v. Wade, DeLay told HuffPost, referring to the landmark 1973 decision establishing a limited constitutional right to abortion. "There's been several examples where the Supreme Court has ruled and the executive branch and/or the legislative branch has chosen not to enforce it," he added, citing Dred Scott v. Sandford, the 1857 decision holding that African-Americans could not be citizens, which was eventually overturned by the 14th Amendment.

In addition to the billboard campaign, "Restrain the Judges" rallied on the Supreme Court steps last April 2015 as the justices heard oral argument on marriage equality. But the centerpiece of the group's campaign is an effort to push Congress to strip federal courts of jurisdiction over marriage issues. To that end, the group sends faux restraining orders - 350,000 of them so far, according to Janet Porter, who started the coalition - to Supreme Court justices and members of Congress asking lawmakers to "restrain federal judges from ruling on marriage."
