Last month Robert R. Reilly published a new book “Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behaviour is Changing Everything.” “Despite its high-interest subject matter, it met with a media blackout. Neither The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal or even more conservative publications wanted to review the book – not even to tear it to shreds, as some partisan websites have done,” notes Alvino-Mario Fantini from MercatorNet.com.
In Making Gay Okay Reilly asks, “Why are Americans being forced to consider homosexual acts as morally acceptable? Why has the US Supreme Court accepted the validity of same-sex “marriage”, which, until a decade ago, was unheard of in the history of Western or any other civilization? Where has the “gay rights” movement come from, and how has it so easily conquered America?”
The answers are in the dynamics of the rationalization of sexual misbehavior. The power of rationalization the means by which one mentally transforms wrong into right drives the gay rights movement, gives it its revolutionary character, and makes its advocates indefatigable. The homosexual cause moved naturally from a plea for tolerance to cultural conquest because the security of its rationalization requires universal acceptance. In other words, we all must say that the bad is good.
Fantini interviews Reilly about his book. Fantini’s first question:
What is the connection between sexuality, contraception, and same-sex marriage?
Once you separate sex from diapers through contraception, you’re on a slippery slope. In the U.S. legal system, we went from a Supreme Court case that first allowed contraception only for married couples, to a case that then allowed contraception for all adults, to another case which legalized contraception for everyone, including minors and children. In tandem to that, in Roe v. Wade the court said: If your contraceptive has failed, you oughtn’t be penalized by the child that is then so conceived and you may, therefore, eliminate it. The capstone came with the U.S. v. Windsor decision a little more than a year ago in which the Supreme Court said that sodomy basically can serve as the basis for marriage.

“Plato teaches that societies take on the features and tastes of the persons most prominent in them. Reilly shows how America’s ruling class is shaping our society according to its taste for homosexuality and its distaste for natural families. If you want to know the philosophical and legal background of the revolution that is being imposed upon America and its consequences read this book.” — Angelo M. Codevilla , PhD Professor Emeritus, Boston University; Author, The Character of Nations.
George Orwell wrote, “The more a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.”
