DEFINITIONS

***

We need to look at what terms are appropriate and accurate to use when describing homosexuals. We don't want to use unnecessarily derisive terms, although simply calling them what they are might be construed as derisive. OTOH, we don't want to use inaccurate terms. Let's look at a few common terms:

GAY: This good word has been co-opted and redefined by the homosexual lobby. In reality we at WMD are 100% in favor of "gay marriages". Everyone ought to have a "gay marriage".

Here's Webster's 1828 definition:

GAY, a.
1. Merry; airy; jovial; sportive; frolicksome. It denotes more life and animation than cheerful.
Belinda smiled, and all the world was gay.
2. Fine; showy; as a gay dress.
3. Inflamed or merry with liquor; intoxicated; a vulgar use of the word in America.


Notice that back then the vulgar use of the word referred to a drunk! Even the vulgar use had nothing to do with homosexuality.

Webster's 1913

GAY, a.
Excited with merriment; manifesting sportiveness or delight; inspiring delight; livery; merry.
Belinda smiled, and all the world was gay. Pope.
Gay hope is theirs by fancy fed. Gray.
2. Brilliant in colors; splendid; fine; richly dressed.
Why is my neighbor's wife so gay? Chaucer.
A bevy of fair women, richly gay In gems and wanton dress Milton.
3. Loose; dissipated; lewd. [Colloq.] Syn. -- Merry; gleeful; blithe; airy; lively; sprightly, sportive; light-hearted; frolicsome; jolly; jovial; joyous; joyful; glad; showy; splendid; vivacious.

Very much the same as the first definition. Thus we see that the word GAY has been totally corrupted in referring to homosexuals. The word has nothing in common with what it has been corrupted into. Homosexuals are not necessarily gay (statistics show quite the opposite, they have incredibly high rates of suicide) and gay people are not homosexual. The word GAY is totally INACCURATE in reference to homosexuals. We refuse to aid in the corruption of the word and will not use it to refer to homosexuals unless it's in something we are quoting.

Homosexuals call heterosexuals "straight". The opposite of straight is not gay. Antonyms (opposites) for straight include; crooked, twisted, devious, warped, perverted, unusual, or queer.

QUEER: As seen above, this is a much more accurate term.

Webster's 1828

QUEER, a.
Odd; singular; hence, whimsical.


Webster's 1939

QUEER, a.
1. At variance with what is usual or normal; differing in some odd way from what is ordinary; odd; singular; strange; whimsical; as, a queer story or act. A queer look." W. Irving.

This term is thought to be derisive, but not only is it ACCURATE, it is accepted by the homosexual community. The most infamous militant homosexual advocacy group called themselves "QUEER NATION". The prominent homosexual group here in Oshkosh calls themselves "QUEERS on the WATER" or "QUEER H2O".

If the rationalization for using the word gay is that it's the word accepted by homosexuals themselves, then the same rationale says the word QUEER is perfectly acceptable, since they also use that term themselves. QUEER is a term that is acceptable to both sides.

PERVERT: Also accurate as seen above, but currently a derisive term. Although accurate, we prefer the term QUEER, since it is accurate and accepted by homosexuals.

PERVERT', v.t. [L. perverto; per and verto, to turn.] , propriety, or from its proper purpose; to distort from its true use or end; as, to pervert reason by misdirecting it; to pervert the laws by misinterpreting and misapplying them; to pervert justice; to pervert the meaning of an author; to pervert nature; to pervert truth.
2. To turn from the right; to corrupt.


HOMOSEXUAL: This is the clinical term for one having sex with another of the same sex. It is also acceptable to both sides. it is a rather long word, and in writing an author doesn't want to use the same word redundantly. Unfortunately shortening it to HOMO is usually looked on as a derision, so the better alternative is QUEER.

Merriam-Webster

homosexual:
1 : of, relating to, or characterized by a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex
2 : of, relating to, or involving sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex

SODOMITE: This is the biblcal term and absolutely is valid no matter who might not approve.

Webster's 1828 and 1913

Sod"om*ite, n.
1. An inhabitant of Sodom.
2. One guilty of sodomy.


Webster's 1913

Sod"om*y, n. Carnal copulation in a manner against nature; buggery. Gen. 19:5. <- can we be more explicit? ->

Gen 19:5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. (know = carnally, physically)

Homosexuals have tried to make the crime of sodomy something other than the obvious, but anyone who can read the 6th grade English of the King James Bible knows the plain meaning.

Deut 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

This verse has obvious sexual connotations. They were not referred to as sodomites because the lived in Sodom - these lived in Israel. They were not caled sodomites bcause they were inhospitable. They were called sodomites because they committed sexual perversion.

Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

The sodomites left the NATURAL use of the opposite sex (see Romans 1) and went after STRANGE flesh. There is no question that sodomy refers to sexual perversion. The only dispute is how far does the definition go? Some definitions limit sodomy to same-sex relations, some definitions include the same acts (oral, anal) even if done by the opposite sex.

The Bible says the "marriage bed is undefiled", but it also speaks of the "natural use of the woman". Most believe that the woman herself IS the "natural use" and the acts can be whatever they desire, since the marriage bed is undefiled. Some believe only vaginal intercourse is the natural use.

Sodomites want to DEFILE the marriage bed by having homosexual acts which, by definition, are "going after STRANGE flesh" and cannot qualify as "marriage".

While we're on this point:

Webster's 1828

MAR'RIAGE, n. [L.mas, maris.] The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity,and for securing the maintenance and education of children.

Webster's 1913

Mar"riage, n.
1. The act of marrying, or the state of being married; legal union of a man and a woman for life, as husband and wife; wedlock; matrimony.


Even the first definition of the current Merriam-Webster notes:

marriage:
1 a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law

    Sodomy is anything but "Gay." Men and women are killing themselves with STDs through the practice of homosexuality... As Christians we have a duty to warn them of the consequences of their dangerous and vile perversion.

    Thank you, Teno, for doing this

    My good friend, evangelist George Grant (formerly the famous wrestler "Gorgeous George" of the 60's and 70's) often says, "There's nothing gay about being queer!"

    Do you also mourn the "loss" of words like "queer" or "faggot"? Both have adopted their homosexual meaning through derogatory use by heterosexuals. Why is it that the "loss" or these words is not bemoaned by language hygienists?

    Another thing altogether is whether the word "gay" has been "lost" at all. The word still has its original dictionary meanings of 'merry', 'joyful', etc., but it has adopted an additional meaning, that of homosexuality. The additional meaning of "gay" was introduced by homosexual men themselves, while the derogatory meanings of "queer" and "faggot" were accommodated by aggressive heterosexuals, which is probably exactly why "gay" is such a rallying point for language conservatives while "queer" and "faggot" are not.

    "Queer" has not been lost. It is a perfectly appropriate word to use in referring to a homosexual. It was not redefined at all.

    I rarely use the word faggot.

    Straight people do not want to be associated with sodomites, which is why redefining the word 'gay' is "mourned".
