Friday is for Heart Songs
Tell a lie long enough, tell a lie with pleasant smiling faces on the network news, tell a lie with pleasant stories and glowing anecdotal stories, tell a lie in film, and magazine story, newspaper accounts, and sound-bites from celebrities, tell the same lie for twenty years, tell a lie until those who don’t believe the lie can be shamed into never voicing their contrary opinion and you can make almost ANYTHING sound healthy, good and right.
So it isn’t surprising that media propaganda has now convinced the nation to endorse not only same-sex marriage but same-sex adoption. But what do the actual facts state? Do children of same-sex adopting “couples” do as well as heterosexual couples? Well, here is an excerpt from one report that tries to set the record straight.
But as previously discussed here and in other venues, the most rigorous and comprehensive research shows that when compared to children raised by a mother and a father, the children who are raised in same-sex unions are at higher risk for engaging in unhealthy behavior, and suffer far greater emotional, legal, educational, relationship, and financial problems in their lives. Surely, it is fair to assume that those surveyed who support same-sex adoption are not actually intending to “cast a vote” for poorer child outcomes or to set up children who are already suffering detachment from their biological parents for failure. So why the disconnect? Are people simply not paying attention, or are their views being skewed by the copious (mis)information available in this digital age?
How should Christians respond? The lie of course will eventually be exposed. The culture will pay a high price and unfortunately much of it will be borne by children yet to be born. One day the foolishness will be revealed and King will meet out justice.
But what should the people of God do now?
How do we love the culture, and love the people who make bad law, and mock God’s laws?
How do we turn the cultural tables on the lie?
