Dangerous Relations examines how the homosexual agenda is changing everything. Since writing his first volume on this issue, the attacks on faith, freedom and family have especially taken off, with new examples appearing almost on a daily basis all around the Western world. And so too have the demands of other activist minority groups, emboldened as they are by the successes of the homosexual activists. Now all sorts of other fringe sexualities are being championed by various activist groups.
While my first volume covered just about all the bases in the homosexual debate, much more can always be said. This follow-up volume to Strained Relations: The Challenge of Homosexuality (Melbourne, 2011) will act as a supplement to what was presented there, and include new information and material to further round out my case.
Chapter One of Dangerous Relations looks at the many cases of homosexual intolerance of anyone and anything that dares to resist their radical and militant agenda. And I can say right now that as soon as this book goes to the printers, it will already be out of date in this area. There will be many dozens — perhaps hundreds — of new cases of anti-faith and anti-family bigotry which will have occurred in the short period of time needed to produce this book at the printers.
Chapter Two documents how families, parenthood and family identity all suffer as we allow the institutions of marriage and family to be redefined and recreated in the image of the activists. Children in particular suffer in this brave new world of social engineering.
Chapter Three offers several prime examples of the growing problem of the slippery slope. More and more activists are now very publicly and passionately pushing for paedophilia, polyamory, incest rights and even bestiality, buoyed by the successes of the homosexual activists, and following on with the very same arguments and rationale.
Chapter Four provides some much-needed background information to head off some of the common criticisms made by the activists and their supporters. Specifically it will rebuff the silly notion that heterosexual marriage is just a recent invention, and that marriage has always been a wildly fluctuating and changing institution with no clear boundaries at all. Thus it takes on the oft-heard myth that the two-parent family is basically just an invention of the 1950s, and that families have — and can — come in any shape and size you want them to.
Chapter Five discusses the importance of fathers and mothers and demonstrates how both are absolutely vital for the optimal raising of children. Advocates for homosexual adoption rights need to let this data speak, and not allow emotional wants and desires to trump the wellbeing of children. I conclude my book with three appendices. The first offers a recommended reading list for those who want to take these matters further. Then I feature two appendices containing the moving testimonies of a former homosexual and a former lesbian.
