Politics and Power

Politics of sex, politics of race

The "gay" movement would like to present itself as the latest chapter in the civil-rights movement. But it is quite the opposite. Homosexuals are not pushing this nation to return to eternal truths from which it has strayed. They are pushing us to deny that there are eternal truths and to move in the direction of a world where we make up the rules as we go along. Such a world is, of course, a world defined ultimately by politics and power.

And that's the struggle we're facing isn't it, between those who believe there are eternal truths and those who want to make it up as they go along.
