Isaac Newton’s third law of motion holds that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Though this does apply to physics, it can also apply to culture and society. Back in the early 2000s, the religious right in America pushed for the government to canonize traditional marriage and institute several state bans on same-sex unions. They were met with a large amount of pushback from the LGBT lobby. Ultimately, those bans were deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, and the rainbow flag waved proudly over the cultural battlefield.
As time has gone on, the LGBT political lobby has continued to push into the culture with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer hitting a glass table. Recently, the San Francisco Gay Men’s choir put out a video it has since deleted stating that they were “coming for your kids.” Though they claimed it was satirical, I doubt any parent who worries about the safety of his or her child thought it was very funny.
