Now Comic have joined the push to make same-sex marriage the new ‘normal.’
As part of its ongoing campaign to increase its characters’ diversity, Marvel Comics will feature X-Men superhero Northstar having a same-sex “marriage” ceremony with his partner, Kyle.
Northstar became the first openly homosexual comic character in 1992.
Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Axel Alonso said, “Marvel has a long and proud tradition of reflecting the world in all its diversity, and this is just one more example of that.”
Marjorie Liu, an X-Men writer, told Rolling Stone she wanted to inspire others to follow their footsteps. “Here are two people, trying to live their lives – mutant and gay, black and gay – empowered in their own ways, but also fringe-dwellers,” she said. “They’re living life on their own terms…The message is: You can do the same thing.”
The “marriage” will take place in next month’s Astonishing X-Men #51.
The writer, Ben Johnson, goes on to catalog the many comic characters who have been identified as homosexual in the last several years and concludes with this poignant observation:
While some are tempted to laugh off gay comics, their impact on popular culture – and the children whose worldview they help shape – cannot be calculated.
Response: The propaganda machine to change the attitudes of people in America toward same-sex marriage is in overdrive and now they are reaching out to touch the children. In movies, on TV, and now in comics –everywhere you turn same-sex marriage is being presented as the new ‘normal.’ Then on TV news shows commentators are telling everyone who will listen that those who disagree including millions of Christians in America are all on the ‘wrong side of history’ and need to get with it.
Better to be on the wrong side of a sinful culture than the wrong side of God from my perspective. Ask Sodom and Gomorrah! The time is now here and it is becoming obvious to all observers that Bible believing Christian values are increasingly being expelled from the dominant culture in America. As time goes on, Christians will increasingly need to produce our own music, movies, TV programing, and now even comic books that continue to reflect Biblical family values and morality. *Top
