Gay Marriage: What’s in It for Michael Bloomberg?
The authoritarian statist Michael Bloomberg has used his power to suppress guns, cigarettes, salt, trans fats, soda pop, baby formula, and even Styrofoam, but there is one thing he isn’t against: the distortion of marriage to encompass deviant same-sex relationships. His deep pockets allow him to extend his authority beyond NYC’s borders. Just as he recently dumped $12 million into television ads propagandizing against the Second Amendment, he has donated generously to political candidates who will push his sexual agenda.
Our ruling oligarchy has been laying the groundwork for the current blitzkrieg against marriage for years. The corruption crosses party lines, as made obvious in an interview with Bloomberg from 2011:
Q: I know you made some contributions to Republican senators who voted the way you wanted on gay marriage. Are there any other…
A: They didn’t vote the way I wanted. They voted the right way. They voted the way for freedom, for democracy, for equality, [quack quack quack…]
Q: Are there any other candidates — city or federal — who you’re supporting financially?
A: [Quack quack quack] Voting for somebody because they do the right thing, particularly when it’s not politically easy to do [although it certainly is now, as Obama's and Hillary's recent flip-flops confirm], that’s exactly the kind of support we should give and I’d like to think that I’m doing the right thing. I owe it to my children.
I should have guessed. Homosexual marriage is for the children.
Meanwhile, Democratic state Sen. Ruben Diaz, Sr. of the Bronx — a reverend and vociferous gay marriage opponent — followed the money, calling the donations a clear case of quid pro quo.
“It appears that State Senators Stephen Saland, Mark Grisanti, James Alesi and Roy McDonald sold their votes to the Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg for $10,300 each,” Diaz said in a statement…
In light of the lethal AIDS epidemic, it should be obvious that sodomy causes far more serious health problems than baby formula or soda pop, so Nanny Bloomberg can’t adopt his usual pose of imposing good health on his subjects. This leaves us to wonder, what is the motive of our oligarchs in pushing so aggressively for homosexual marriage? Their ability to manipulate public opinion on the issue has been impressive, but what do they hope to get out of it?
With statists like Bloomberg, the motive is always the same: more power for government. The family and Christianity are traditional bulwarks against tyranny, providing competing moral authority. Homosexual marriage undermines the first by reducing the concept of holy matrimony to a tasteless joke, and prepares the groundwork for a devastating assault on the second. Christian clerics who perform homosexual marriage are guilty of blasphemy; those who do not will be guilty of hate crimes.
Already a Christian in New Mexico has been ordered by the government to photograph a lesbian commitment ceremony in violation of her religious principles. When gay marriage is the law of land, lawsuits will be applied ferociously to tear the collar off every pastor who takes his faith seriously, leaving only hollowed-out, insincere shells where churches once stood.

Remember when Obama called for the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? Remember how it was discussed briefly, then most
I don’t really care about this ruling vis a vis gay marriage as much as two other interesting points it
It’s entirely possible that, when it comes to gay marriage and the First Amendment, pluralism won’t work.
