Republican Fearmongering: The Gays Are Coming! The Gays Are Coming!

I'm not even going to investigate whether or not the happy era of "family values" the Republicans want to "preserve" ever existed in the first place. Let's say it did. For the sake of argument, let's even say it's the pinnacle of human society. So, using life as presented in 1950's and 1960's sitcoms as a model, do the Republicans have the winning recipe for creating the ideal society?


Ending abortion? No, and no. In European countries, where legal abortion is a given and not even up for debate, abortion rates are lower:

If you really want to end abortion, it seems making it illegal is an empty gesture. Enacting more "family friendly" policies? May be a better idea. I mean, I can't say for sure why rates in some countries are lower than in others, but they are lower in countries with "family friendly" policies. Maybe it's a coincidence.

What about our crazy teens? Are they sipping malteds at the soda shop, or sucking on something else? Let's look at the sex lives of adolescents. According to this article:

"In the U.S., rates of teen sex, pregnancy, abortion and birth have all declined since 1991, as a result, most experts agree, of a combination of teens' postponing sex and increased contraception. But the rates are still higher than those in virtually all Western European countries."


What about those pesky gays, looking to undermine God's plan for life? They're going to destroy marriage, our basic unit of human society, right? Well... if that's happening, don't blame the gays.

I have to admit, the human race does seem to be experimenting a bit with social institutions. Some of it is probably is a mistake, some of it is probably a move forward, and time will tell which is which. As a species, we're not perfect, and we do dumbheaded things all the time that require corrective action.

At the very least, you should try to find the correct course of action to achieve your stated objectives, instead of creating some fairy tale and trying to dupe people into believing you have the answers.
