Husband-wife love causes controversy at Harvard
The glamorous movie star Jada Pinkett Smith created a firestorm at Harvard by openly expressing her love for her husband, actor Will Smith. Her remarks declaring that today's woman "can have it all a loving man, devoted husband, loving children, a fabulous career" offended gay students because of their "hetero-normative content."
The Biseuxal, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Supporters Alliance demanded an apology because Smith "implied that standard sexual relationships are only between males and females."
The foundation sponsoring Ms. Smith's visit promptly apologized, and scheduled a series of campus wide meetings to avoid such offensive occasions in the future.
This controversy reveals the radical nature of the so-called gay rights agenda, with its determination to obliterate all relationship norms and to strike back at anyone who speaks warmly of the traditional family.
The lack of standards for pursuing love and happiness will ultimately cripple rather than liberate our increasingly confused young people.
