Below is a letter to D&G written by children of gay and lesbian parents in support of D&G’s view on traditional marriage
Children support D&G

Dear Dolce and Gabbana,

Greetings from the United States. The six signers of this letter were all raised by gay and lesbian parents. Five of us are women and one is a queer man, though we all raised our children with their opposite-sex parents. We want to thank you for giving voice to something that we learned by experience: Every human being has a mother and a father, and to cut either from a child’s life is to rob the child of dignity, humanity, and equality.

We know that gay parents can be loving, since we loved our parents and they loved us. Nonetheless, we have all had firsthand experience with the harsh backlash that follows when the dominant view of “gay parenting” as universally positive is questioned. We know that you will come under tremendous pressure, especially now when both Italy and the United States are being pushed to override our concerns for our rights to a mom and dad, in order to please a powerful gay lobby.

Nobody receives more vicious attacks from the lobby than those who come from the gay community and question its policies: children of gay couples just as much as the gay men who defend them (like the two of you). In all likelihood many in the international community will try to get your shows cancelled, your advertisements censored, and your reputation destroyed online. You have shown yourselves to be extremely brave. You have given us great inspiration as all six of us prepare to submit letters to the US Supreme Court against gay marriage.

We want to praise your courage and thank you for your inspiration. We also implore you not to surrender when the backlash grows in intensity. If you back down from what you said and apologize, it will leave the children of gay homes even more vulnerable and discredited. It is important for our sake, for the sake of Italian children as well, that you not apologize or capitulate. Please support the idea that all children need to be bonded with their mothers and fathers. It is a human right.

If we can help you in any way, please, let us know. We are not all Christian but we want to send you our blessings, and we promise that we will be lifelong buyers of Dolce and Gabbana from now on.

This letter is in response to Dolce& Gabbana statement that “The only family is the traditional one.” “The family is not a fad,” Gabbana told the interviewer. “In it there is a supernatural sense of belonging.” Procreation “must be an act of love.” Children born through artificial insemination or egg donors are “children of chemistry, synthetic children. Uteruses for rent, semen chosen from a catalog,” Dolce said.

I cannot imagine why these two men would invite such wrath, except that they see the injustice done to children when they are denied one of their parents, and they can’t sit silently by while it is celebrated.

Elton John Vs D&G : Abolishing Tolerance

20 03 2015

imagesIt is absurd that any opinion in support of the natural family (one man one woman) results in immediate accusations, allegations, insults, and even smears campaignsdolcegabbana-dg-fall-winter-2013-full-print-ad-campaign-italy-taormina-sicily-man-fashion-photography-marianovivanco-runway-menswear-baroque-modern-tailoring-05 (1)

In the issue of Panorama magazine released on March 18, the famous fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have a long interview, in which they express support for the natural family.

Their campaign, #DGfamily, launched some time ago from their fashion label. Dolce told Panorama: “It’s not us who invented the family. . . . You are born and you have a mother and a father. Or at least it should be so, that’s why I’m skeptical about what I call the sons of the chemistry, synthetic children, wombs for rent, seeds chosen by a catalog. And then, let’s go to these children and explain them who is their mother. [Talking to the journalist] Would you ever accept to be a daughter of the chemistry? Procreation needs to be an act of love.”

And further, answering the question “Would you have wanted to be fathers?”, The same Domenico Dolce replied: “I am gay, I cannot have a child. . . . Life has a proper natural pathway; there are things that mustn’t be modified. And one of these things is family.”

That was enough to unleash the attacks of the gay lobby against the two designers and their brands. Unfortunately the usual accusations of discrimination and homophobia (accusations which are oddly leveled against two homosexuals), have been advanced by Elton John and Ricky Martin, who have started a boycott campaign.

Other entrepreneurs have declared their support for the natural family and suffered fierce attack and international boycott campaigns orchestrated by the gay lobby. Many have caved under pressure and reversed their positions. (Courtesy of http://citizengo.org.)

This is what Pope Benedict 16th warned about in his book, “Light of the World”. He said, ‘A new intolerance is spreading, that is quite obvious. There are well-established standards of thinking that are supposed to be imposed on everyone. These are then announced in terms of so-called “negative tolerance”. For instance, when people say that for the sake of negative tolerance [i.e. “not offending anyone”] there must be no crucifix in public buildings. With that we are basically experiencing the abolition of tolerance, for it means, after all, that religion, that the Christian faith is no longer allowed to express itself visibly.

When, for example, in the name of non-discrimination, people try to force the Catholic Church to change her position on homosexuality or the ordination of women, then that means that she is no longer allowed to live out her own identity and that, instead, an abstract, negative religion is being made into a tyrannical standard that everyone must follow. That is then seemingly freedom – for the sole reason that it is liberation from the previous situation.

In reality, however, this development increasingly leads to an intolerant claim of a new religion, which pretends to be generally valid because it is reasonable, indeed, because it is reason itself, which knows all and, therefore, defines the frame of reference that is now supposed to apply to everyone. In the name of tolerance, tolerance is being abolished.”
