Wash. Times' Knight: Fight For Marriage Equality Is An "Unholy Campaign" Targeting "The Perversion Of Marriage"

In a July 15 Washington Times column, Robert Knight claimed the fight for same-sex marriage equality is an "unholy campaign" targeting "the perversion of marriage." Knight further suggested marriage equality will "move us closer to barbarism." From The Washington Times:
Over the past 90 years, a relentless campaign has unfolded to overthrow Judeo-Christian morality and replace it with an amorality that says desires themselves validate choices.
This campaign has been advanced largely by hijacking the rubric and moral capital of the black civil rights movement and misapplying it to volitional behavior. The changes, which move us closer to barbarism, are enforced via media that pounce on even the slightest hesitation to embrace the new immorality.
The current target of this unholy campaign is the perversion of marriage. For the first time, a Republican-controlled state Senate chamber provided the margin of victory for a state law redefining marriage away from the man-woman requirement. Soon, there will be no bride needed or no groom for a New York marriage license. Meanwhile, liberal judges all over the country are ruling that preference for traditional morality is animated solely by "hate."
This radical advance is occurring partly because of the ongoing media propaganda that suppresses any serious discussion of the consequences of sexual dysfunction. But it's also occurring because of the economic drama unfolding in Washington. The left does not waste crises that it purposefully creates.
