"Ernie" has some thoughts on LGBT issues.A good friend of mine (I'll call him Stu) confided in me that his pride and joy, his 16 year old grandson, announced to his parents that he was "gay". The boy (I'll call him Bobby) said he had felt these tendencies for over a year and had read numerous articles on the net about homosexuality before conceding that he was indeed gay. His dad was devastated and tried to convince Bobby that he was too young and inexperienced to know that for sure. He begged him to give it time and even recommended reputable counseling. But Bobby was adamant that everything he'd read on the subject left no doubt in his mind. It was something he was born with and there was nothing that could change him.Since I have a grandson the same age it caused some anxiety on my part so I decided to go on the net and see what kind of information had convinced Bobby he was homosexual. I really wanted to find if there were any signs a parent (or grandparent) could watch for that might suggest these tendencies developing in a young person. I only investigated males, so I can't speak on lesbianism.Well, it didn't take long to realize that 90% of what I found on the net was sponsored by the LGBT group. I couldn't find one article on the "signs" a parent could watch for, and any kind of guide that could help a teenager evaluate his sexuality. The LGBT articles were basically extolling the virtues of the gay lifestyle. Seemed nothing more than "recruitment" pieces to me.In examining the 10% that weren't LGBT I found several articles on how and why transversion therapy didn't work. Even people who completed the therapy eventually reverted back to homosexuality. I did find an article that explained how most teens who think they're homosexual had been victimized in their young life by an older, charismatic "gay" person, so parents should watch for older males who show an unusual interest in their much younger son. Other influences were also mentioned such as bullying, loners, etc.In today's new age, pop sub-culture it's obvious that anything, or anyone, that defies tradition is applauded and admired. Reaching an almost celebrity status among their subculture peers. And that applies to virtually everything we older people value and try to teach our children. Transgenders, cross dressers, lesbians, homosexual marriages and all the other perversion forced on children today as the way of the future is relentless. Movies, TV Shows, TV Ads, music, media and liberals everywhere. It's hard to imagine how less than 2% of our entire population ever garnered so much political clout. But think about it. These groups see an ally in leftwing liberalism so they organize, gather donations and send big dollars to liberal candidates. The more money they send, the more favorablelaws and press they receive. The democrat party now rests comfortably in the pockets of these and other anti-American groups.I guess I'll have to face it, morality is dead in today's culture. The Supreme Court just confirmed it.
