Unequal Acts

July 25, 2012

Those pushing the redefinition of marriage insist that all they want is equality. After all aren’t persons with same-sex attraction equal as human beings to those without. Why should they be discriminated against?

Of course, they are human beings with all the rights of other human beings. The problem is not that the people aren’t equal, but that the acts aren’t equal. Those defending marriage don’t like to get explicit, but sometimes it is necessary. The intimate acts engaged in by two people of the same sex are not equal to the marital union. Those acts do not unite two persons are one flesh in an action in which each participates with their full personhood as male or female. A man engaged in sexual union with a woman is acting as a man, a woman as a woman.

The acts engaged in by two persons of the same sex are acts which one person does to another, not with the other as equals. To be graphically blunt, homosexual acts engage the genitals of only one of the partners at a time. The acts engaged in by two persons of the same sex if engaged in by a male/female couple would not consummate a marriage.

The acts engaged in by two persons of the same sex cannot conceive a child who is the union in the flesh of their genetic heritage. The fact that male/female sexual unions make babies and babies are the future of every nation is the reason why governments have a vested interest in preserving and protecting marriage. Studies show that being raised by one’s married biological mother and father is associated with the best chance of a positive outcome for the children.

The problem is that those defending marriage don’t really want to talk about what same sex couples do in bed and so we talk about tradition and the way it has always been, but it is traditional and has always been this way because people understood the biology of sexual intimacy.

    I greatly appreciate all of Dale’s posts, but once I was speaking along the lines of this post, and a gay fellow pointed out to me that gays have sex in ways other than anal intercourse, in fact lesbians necessarily so. They do in fact have sex engaging the genitals of both partners. The technical terms are frottage (for males) and tribadism (for females).

    In all the years that I’ve been following Dale’s posts–since Feb., 2000,–I’ve always been struck by the scientific accuracy of the posts. Didn’t want to spoil a perfect record!

      This is why we don’t want to go into the details, but we can use the example of a male plug and female receptacle. The electricity only flows when one is firmly inserted into the other. Rubbing them up against each other doesn’t make the connection. Same-sex acts aren’t in a technical sense really sexual and they are not equal to the union of one man and one woman. .

    Outstanding, thoughtful and insightful analysis. In most discussions today, much more heat is generated than light. Thanks for shedding much needed light on the subject.

    I have just been reading Redeeming the Rainbow: A Christian Response to the ‘Gay’ Agenda
    a new on-line book by Dr. Scott Lively. Have you considered putting your book, One Man, One Woman online? It would be wonderful if people could readily access the information it contains, especially now before the elections!

    The late Fr. John Harvey of COURAGE – a ministry for men and women struggling with same sex attraction – said that the human body is like a doughnut; hollow on the inside. All food and water pass through the body and is not part OF the body. When “two become one flesh” they do not use the digestive system.
