Writer Matt Katz recently tweeted: “Cory Booker confirms his heterosexuality (which he has to do, because opponents have stirred rumors about this from the beginning) & says he sees a pathway to becoming the first unmarried president since 1884.”
Well lucky Cory Booker… at least he is alive to confirm his sexuality. That’s not the case with James Buchanan, the 15th President of the United States, and someone whose sexuality has been the center of endless speculation – in an attempt to codify same and to teach children that he was America’s “first gay president.”
See, the LGBT movement has become a kind of religion… well, not kind of, it is a religion. This new religion has adopted, as one of its core beliefs, something not unlike the Mormon Church’s “baptism for the dead” – also known as vicarious baptism or proxy baptism. In the new LGBT faith, living people speak on behalf of those who are dead and ask on their behalf to become “gay” so that they may be added, posthumously, to the fold.
Once added to the LGBT “sainthood” their life “stories” are then taught to children in the didactic manner, much as children in religious schools are taught about the lives of saints or martyrs or prophets. In New Jersey, with yesterday’s passage of S-1569, the Legislature has made this an unfunded mandate – with the scrapping of old textbooks and their replacement with new “religious” tracts that focus on the lives of said “saints”.
Strange how things go. That we are back to this again. It is like the ring-around-the-rosy in Poussin’s “Dance to the Music of Time”. There is no such thing as progress… we just get stupid again, profligate, dissolute.
But the religion bit is for real. No less than Atlantic magazine and New York magazine have today unveiled stories that paint Cory Booker as the candidate of a “new” religion. Atlantic calls it the “theory of love”, while New York magazine plumps for “candidate of the Christian Left”. No kidding. So it’s here. Welcome to the new paradigm. The religion of the Trenton Democrats is no longer Roman Catholic or Jewish or Protestant… but that of the golden ass, the most holy orgasm, and the sacrament of abortion. These are not matters of policy… but of faith. Not open to debate.
Writing in the Star-Ledger yesterday, reporter Jonathan Salant (pronounced Slant) noted that when Booker first ran for the Senate and was asked about his sexual orientation, Booker answered, “What does it matter?”
We could not agree more.
But that was back in those quaint times of long ago… 2013. Today, in today’s politics, religion matters – and nothing matters more than how you reach orgasm and with whom. Piss on policy… today’s religious leaders in politics, corporate America, and academia want to know how you get down. Just read S-1569. It is the most important thing about you.
Poor Cory Booker. He wants to run for President, so he has to declare a side. And in the America of today – the America fostered by legislation like that passed yesterday in Trenton – it is a conundrum as great as that faced by any Irish politician in the midst of The Troubles. What are you? Who are you? It’s all that matters.
