Have you wondered why there is such a fierce push by our government to make gay marriage and LGBT rights palatable and acceptable to our society? You can be sure that when there is an organized effort of this magnitude; it is a means to an end. In this case, our “progressive” (Communist) administration seeks to destroy the traditional and Biblical definition of the family unit.
They also are determined to demonize all those who oppose gay marriage, and make even their verbal outrage a “hate” crime, punishable by fines and even by incarceration. As you can see, this has been well thought out by this administration.
I am a baby boomer. Back in the 1950’s, this would have not even been an issue. It would have shocked most Americans, and would have been rapidly put to bed. The so-called “progressives” have been in their glory days with Obama being a super–progressive. After all, BHO was mentored by Frank Marshall Davis; a known Communist, during his teen years in Hawaii.
People’s World is the flagship publication of Communist Party USA. It’s the successor to the Soviet-funded and directed Daily Worker. If you want the pulse of American communism, which, sadly, is not dead, visit the website of People’s World.
And if you go there now, a week after the Irish stunned the world by approving gay marriage, you’ll find a lead article at the communist organ that would have been unthinkable in the 1980s, when Fidel Castro was tossing homosexuals into insane asylums, or the 1950s, when CPUSA was expelling gay members like Harry Hay, or the 1930s, when Stalin was banning homosexuals, or in the 1920s, when Lenin was purging Russia of “homosexualism.” Indeed, you’ll find at the current People’s World a curious week-long lead: a beaming photo of gay Irishmen and supporters celebrating the redefinition of marriage in this onetime bastion of Roman Catholicism where the most prominent export was priests and nuns.
The lead article quotes a happy comrade, the head of Ireland’s Communist Party, who celebrated this “wake-up call,” no doubt relishing the slap at communism’s longtime most reviled foes: the Roman Catholic Church specifically and organized Christianity generally. Communists worldwide are united in this triumph, just as they’ve celebrated every instance where gay marriage is allowing them to do what they’ve wanted to do since literally the time of Marx and Engels: attack religion and abolish the family. Those latter words, in fact, literally appear in The Communist Manifesto, where Marx and Engels underscored this “infamous proposal of the Communists,” as they rightly described it (with exclamation mark): “abolition of the family!” -source
Americans Buy Into Marxist Family Planning
To be sure, reading this awful screed against human nature can be confusing, let alone unsatisfying and thoroughly unedifying. What do the authors mean, for example, when they screech: “Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists”?
What, precisely, Marx and Engels meant by “abolition” is a subject for debate, which I detail in my book, “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage.” There, I discuss at length the communist founding fathers’ disturbing views of family, marriage, sexuality, and more.
They are but one stop in a long line of leftists such as Robert Owen, Charles Fourier, Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Alexandra Kollontai, Margaret Sanger, Margaret Mead, Wilhelm Reich, Herbert Marcuse, Betty Friedan, Kate Millett, the Bolsheviks, the Frankfurt School of cultural Marxists, Mao Tse-Tung, assorted ’60s radicals from Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn to Mark Rudd and Tom Hayden, and on to modern groups like the Beyond Marriage campaign and various gay-marriage activists—all just for starters—who have engaged in a long march to fundamentally transform natural, traditional, biblical marriage and the family.
Although they varied in their beliefs, all bristle at the idea of a God or absolute designer who has devised eternally established standards for male-female marriage and family. Communists today, in places like People’s World, at the website of Communist Party USA, and even in once militantly anti-gay places like Castro’s Cuba, are embracing same-sex marriage as the long-awaited vehicle they’ve sought for centuries to reshape, redefine, and take down natural-traditional-biblical marriage—and to attack religion and religious believers. They are beside themselves in a mix of befuddlement and joy to see the mainstream culture finally with them, at long last, in one of their numerous efforts to redefine family and marriage.
This is not say, of course, that you’ll find support for same-sex marriage in the writings of Marx and Engels. Please. Don’t be silly. No group of radicals ever in the 2,000-year sweep of the Judeo-Christian West ever contemplated that. The mere fleeting contemplation, the mere momentary notion, the slightest passing fancy of a man legally marrying another man (with widespread cultural acceptance) in the 1850s or 1950s, or as recently as the 1980s or 1990s, would have been scoffed at as inanely incomprehensible. – source
So you see, the progressives realizing that the break up of the Biblical definition of marriage and family would significantly help their cause; it was as if a light bulb went off in their warped Communist minds! Why had they not thought of this before? The gay community and their demands were just what the progressives had been waiting for.

Marx and Engels’ Hatred for Family
Nonetheless, along the road that prodded civilization toward this historically extreme spot, some influential forces emerged on the far Left that cannot and should not be ignored. Among certain elements was a pronounced sexual radicalism that arguably helped surface the road, or at least broke the ground. One such element was the neo-Marxists of the Frankfurt School, which had an especially strong impact upon American universities, particularly in the 1960s.
But that would come later, a century after Marx and Engels. For this article, let’s stick with Marx and Engels. I cannot here reiterate what requires many pages to detail, but, in short, Marx and Engels were no great fans of marriage and family. “Blessed is he who has no family,” Marx wrote to Engels, where he was at best joking (funny, eh?).
Their final semi-partnership was an 1884 book published by Engels a year after Marx’s death. Titled, “The Origin of the Family,” Engels in the preface makes clear that the book reflected Marx’s views. Engels there stated that Marx had wanted to undertake this particularly important work and had produced extensive extracts up until his death, which Engels had reproduced in the book “as far as possible.” In fact, many of the ideas in “The Origin of the Family” can be found in the first joint work by Marx and Engels, “The German Ideology,” which was not published during their lifetimes. Scholars of the work are certain that “The Origin of the Family” was essentially a joint work of the two founders of Marxism, one scholar calling it “an impressive unity and continuity over four decades in the basic outlines of their thoughts.”
There, and elsewhere, we see, among other things, a fanatical push to abolish all right of inheritance, to end home and religious education, to dissolve monogamy in marriage, to pursue pre- and extra-marital sex, to foster and “tolerate” (as Engels put it) the “gradual growth of unconstrained sexual intercourse” by unmarried women, to nationalize all housework, to shift mothers into factories, to move children into daycare nurseries, to separate children into community collectives apart from their natural parents, and, most of all, for society and the state to rear and educate children.
As Engels envisioned, “the single family ceases to be the economic unit of society. Private housekeeping is transformed into a social industry. The care and education of the children becomes a public affair; society looks after all children alike, whether they are legitimate or not.” -source
Is it more clear what is happening in America, brethren? This movement to do away with the traditional family is multi faceted. The goal in Communism is that the State becomes the god of the people. The worst enemy to Communism is Christianity. The gay masses believe that the Obama administration is SO concerned about equality and about their safety and rights. That could not be further from the truth. The gay community is merely a means to ultimately transition America into a Communist nation. It is also a way to label Christians as “Enemies of the State.”
As I’ve stated in many of my articles, I (unfortunately) believe that the days of greatness for America are gone. I firmly believe that God has pulled away from us. We are under His judgment. We have become a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah.
I will continue to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ – even if that means it will be from a jail. We don’t know what the future holds for us.
We do know Who holds our future – and we can trust Him always!
