[A] society cannot long survive this kind of violence done to its basic values, and history surely shows many societies like Ancient Greece, whose rapid decline was preceded by the proliferation of the gay lifestyle and its public acceptance.
The rapid decline of Ancient Greece? Really? You mean the society that lasted for a good, oh, six centuries whilst allowing (encouraging? Idealizing?) homosexual activity throughout? You mean the tiny collection of city-states and their colonies that managed to basically conquer the entire known world, taking down the greatest empire to date in the process? You mean the society that had an indelible impact on the Roman Empire and Byzantium? You mean the society that indirectly caused the Renaissance when the first Humanists began to bring Greek manuscripts back to Western Europe?
If that’s your definition of “rapid decline,” I’d say you should encourage homosexuality in America, Reverend Euteneuer. That means America will be certain to maintain a dominant world position for several centuries, which will be followed by an impact that reverberates through the next two millennia.
I’d take it.
