Why conservatives are abandoning the 'gay' issue

"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?" – 1 Corinthians 6:19 NKJV
Sex is sacred.
For millennia, this biblical principle was the bedrock moral value of the Western World.
The mysterious portal through which human beings enter this world, sex was to be reserved exclusively for a man and a woman joined permanently by marriage vows, and all other forms and circumstances of sexual expression were forbidden – locked away, as it were, in a sort of Pandora’s Box, heavily guarded by the sentinels of Judeo-Christian Civilization. Confining sex to marriage was universally seen as essential to strong marital unions and secure families, and thus to the very fabric of civilization itself.
However, this strict but divinely inspired and life-protecting moral code – after enabling century after century of dazzling societal evolution in the Western world – has unraveled in our own lifetimes.
The change first emerged into stark public view during the 1960s under the banner of "sexual liberation" and "gay liberation." While the public was distracted by colorful spectacles of youthful rebellion, psychedelic drug use and the rock "invasion," just below the surface a full-bore assault on Western institutions and values – particularly traditional sexual morality – was taking place.
As I show in "How Evil Works," the well-documented leftist infiltration and subversion of virtually all of America's institutions during the last two to three generations has included, front and center, the sabotage of traditional morality and religion. After all, from the Marxist perspective, if you're serious about transforming America – from a land of limited government and individual liberty rooted in a transcendent, faith-based moral code to a population of compliant, needy people dependent on a god-like government – you simply must separate the population from Judeo-Christian values and morality. As John Adams put it: "It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand."
Today, a half-century after the tumultuous '60s, what began then has evolved to heights and depths of sexual anarchy and depravity simply unimaginable to previous generations. It's as though some of us sneaked up to Pandora's Box, killed or seduced the guards, broke the locks, opened the box wide and blew up the lid. And the sexual genie, once restrained but now liberated, has penetrated virtually all areas of life and conjured up an ongoing societal transformation.
Find out how corruption and tyranny are being packaged, perfumed and gift-wrapped – and sold to Americans as though they were wonderful! Read David Kupelian's culture-war classic "The Marketing of Evil" and his just-released sequel, "How Evil Works."
We've progressed way beyond free sex. News reports today showcase an epidemic of school teachers having sex with their underage students, teen "sexting" and rampant middle-school "hookups," transgenders marching in parades proudly displaying their surgically mutilated bodies, and ever-increasing tolerance of adult-child sex.
Perhaps most troubling – at least in terms of its potential to shred the fabric of Judeo-Christian civilization – is so-called "same-sex marriage." The God-ordained union of man and woman, the wellbeing of children (who need both father and mother), the soundness of the family as the basic "cell" of a strong and healthy body politic – all this vanishes when the sacredness of marriage is violated and mocked.
As I will shortly explain, if same-sex marriage becomes the law of the land, moral confusion will dominate our culture, polygamy and other aberrant forms of "marriage" will quickly follow, traditional Christianity will be essentially criminalized, and much more. In a word, America will become unrecognizable............."
