What idea?

The whole thing is a self-serving hate filled diatribe. There are no new ideas in it.

starting with "borrowing 2 trillion dollars to fund our Iraqi imperialism. Via that imperialism, we've cultivated a fresh crop of terrorists. We're running out of oil, but we're running high on gluttony" to jump to this "As a college class exercise, a friend of mine recently interviewed a classmate.
My friend asked, "What don't you like about America?"
The 18-year old classmate said, "Off the record, gay people are taking over."

is nothing but an exercise in mindless self-important nothing better to do hot air blowing....

How are you guys missing it?

Parshall and others assert that homosexuality is sin. Thus, if one is straight and frames homosexuality as sin, it's the sweetest sin, for it's not one's sin. This gives homosexuality an infinite shelf life. It's never grows stale, for whereas it demands change of others, it requires no personal change. No sacrifice. So long as one is straight and heterosexuality demarcates purity, one is permanently pure.

but those with their heads buried most deeply in the sand that gays are covered with the cuts and bruises of stones that have been thrown for decades. There can be no argument about that.

I don't think it's any secret that our earth
by Steven Haninger / March 2, 2006 8:19 PM PST

is a "self healing" body. Most of us learned the basics of that in our very early science classes...something called the "balance of nature". Emphasis was primarily placed on plant and animal dependencies and we learned a neat word called symbiosis. During years of increased "ecological awareness", we also learned that plants and animals were not the only balancing act taking place in our world. It's really basic science. This author seems to have chosen to inject the notion that our earth is deliberate in it's response to balance shifts...making it somewhat "alive". This is "old" science (and old religion). I'm not sure how this ties in with the rest of the authors piece. Perhaps he's just stating some sort of a truth to make his fictional part more believable.

You're giving her too much credit for coherent thinking. It's just an unfocussed heterophopic rant.
