Where Straight Means Hate

In the last post we talked about how all homosexualist terms such as gay, SSA, and transgender set no limits and are not about loving who you want to love, but about breaking down the barriers of human sex and sexuality. Now we're going to give more evidence and show the next step in progress: how if you insist on having traditional ideas about sex and sexuality and want only these true and right ideas taught to children, or even if you are just plain straight personally, you are a hateful bigot.

Case in point: A July 7, 2017 article in Teen Vogue magazine (printed and online), for girls 12-17, called, "Anal Sex: What You Need to Know, How to do it the right way." This is an article describing how to perform the act of sodomy as "a perfectly natural way to engage in sexual activity. Just know that it isn't weird or gross  . . ." although the writer admits, "poop is involved . . . It's not a big deal. Everybody poops." (Hello. That's why the scriptures call this act "filthy.")

The last line reads, "Anal sex and anal stimulation can be awesome, and if you want to give it a go, you do that. More power to you." We'll say this next point more than once: nowhere in the original article is there a single mention of the inordinate risks involved or of any safety measures. Later, because of pushback, the magazine updated the online article with one short paragraph warning to use condoms because "STIs are widespread and abundant."

How's that for caring about "safe sex?" You know, for kids.

An immediate outcry against this article arose on several levels and for several reasons, one being, why are adults pushing any kind of sexual activity on minors? And then, of course, what kind of perverts are pushing sodomy for kids? Make that girls. Go figure.

So there's no such thing as homosex anymore, if everybody is supposed to be doing it? Interesting, this whole gay thing started with this special same-sex attraction identity and now there's nothing special about it! The behaviors are open to everyone! It's all fluid! No special identity required! We hope people can finally see the true nature of this Godless sexual movement. Anything goes. Without God all is permitted, as Dostoevsky repeatedly pointed out.

One of the arguments in favor of this article is the old kidsaregoingtodoitanyway so we better tell them how. Really?

"How can you expect young women to not get pregnant without access to reproductive health care?" defended Phillip Pacardi, editor of Teen Vogue. What? Teaching sodomy is reproductive heath care? This guy is the editor of a girls' magazine? He goes on, "The backlash to this article is rooted in homophobia. It's also laced in arcane delusion about what it means to be a young person today." What? Today? Arcane delusion?  Human beings and human nature and the facts of life have not changed. But we know one huge difference about being a young person today is how oversexed adults with any sort of authority and power are using every opportunity to teach them sex, sex, and more sex!

"Even the CDC says that sodomy is the riskiest sexual behavior for getting and transmitting HIV," reports Elizabeth Johnson, the Activist Mommy who came out publicly against this article. The gay activist response to her was, all the more reason we have to teach them how to do it right! And yet the original article did not have one single mention of condoms or warning of disease. (Incidentally, condoms do not necessarily provide any such protection.) These perverts project their own perversity onto innocent kids for reasons of their own. Their line is, trust us, kids don't like poop, so no, they weren't going to figure that sodomy is great for themselves. This is admittedly an introduction to sodomy. Kids aren't generally doing this. And perverts know it, and know they have to teach it. Remember, attitudes toward sex and sexuality are taught and learned, good or bad, right or wrong---see Plato. (Honestly, people need to crack some classics.) 

Yes, the Chicago Tribune and Vogue said those who are complaining about this article are homophobic. And yet the magazine and the article do not indicate they are for gay girls particularly. So where's the homophobia? People are just really mad the article is peddling obscenity to minors. Obviously Vogue, etc. does not believe sodomy to be obscene, or maybe they are partial to obscenities and want to share them with kids. Be that as it may, are we to assume they are finally admitting homosexuality isn't an identity: it's just about sex, sex, and more sex? If so, homophobia afflicts people who are against obscenity for children, including the peddling of sodomy; homophobia is not about being afraid of or against people. Thank you. We are homophobes then. And proud of it.

And there's that hate again. Adults are considered full of hate because they don't want other adults (read: stranger danger) encouraging minors to perform perverse and very dangerous sex. Apparently they, the perverts, are the ones in charge of teaching kids about sex, not people who actually care about kids'  well being. These people are really sick.

This is called contributing to the delinquency of minors and it is against the law. It's also called distribution of obscene material to children, which is also against the law.

We're pretty sure hating this outrage is the right thing to do.
Another case in point: An online site called twitchy reported a tweet posted by "Zinnia Jones," a he-she transgender, referring to dating services. "I don't see a problem with telling straight guys who are exclusionary of transwomen partners that they should try to work through that . . . These angry declarations that they have some absolute right to not want to be with transwomen are just misplaced and inappropriate." Is this not evidence of how transgenderism is just another face of homosex?

Yes, this is a call for mandatory transgender dating by straights. When once homosexuality was thought of as wrong, now heterosexuality is "misplaced and inappropriate." And that is just not allowed.  Tucker Carlson commented that according to Jones, one's personal romantic dating preferences are no longer one's own and "if you are a biological man who prefers biological women, you are a bigot." In other words, a hater. How closed-minded can you be?

It's not just dating services and youth magazines getting targeted. It's everywhere. This attitude is creeping into our churches as well. Remember our post that reported an LDS general authority stating over the pulpit that people who do not accept homosexuality are "incorrect and unkind." These days LDS members can be heard publicly stating their acceptance of gay marriage;our daughter heard this in her Utah Valley Relief Society meeting recently. Another LDS GA, Sharon Eubank, gave a talk at  BYU's 2017 Women's Conference, regarding "opening up the circle of sisterhood to many more kinds" and "seeing those backgrounds as valuable instead of handicaps." She provides a long list of different kinds of women that must be included, at the end saying,  "I would add . . . liberal, conservative, don't-care, immigrant, gay, converted, and unconverted."  It follows that if we don't open up the circle to abortion, illegal immigration, homosexuality, and unbelief, all views to be esteemed as equally valuable, we're haters.

This is funny, because when you include everyone and everything as equally valuable in a church of Jesus Christ, as in "anything goes," it isn't a church of Jesus Christ anymore. What makes a church or a religion is the upholding of its specific tenets, restraints, requirements, doctrines, beliefs, and values. Otherwise, it turns into a social/cultural/humanitarian club. Might as well join the the local Elks Club or the Peace Corps. Is it too much to ask that a church of Jesus Christ remember who He is and what He died for: our sins?

Now you know. Sexual immorality welcome, traditional morality not welcome. In fact, Straight Means Hate is the new emerging battle cry. As we've said a hundred times, this movement is not about loving who you want to love. It's about upending our entire value system.  And no, they will never stop. As C. S. Lewis wrote, they will end with eating each other up.

This is where toleration, coddling, and celebration of unlimited sex and sexuality has brought us. Now that those who worship perverse and extreme forms of sex and sexuality have gained protection and power, it's not too hard to imagine what this new tyranny could mean to those who resist. We've watched as straight people, decent people, people who love God, have been pressured and coerced into accommodating all things homosex. We've seen how unthinking people have been deceived into welcoming homosexuality into their midst. We've seen how churches, the Boy Scouts, media, public schools and universities, the military, bakers, printers, photographers, florists, friends, neighbors, fellow congregants have given in or been punished. With homosexuality being especially protected, does it not follow that heterosexuality will be demonized? As Robert Bork wrote, when there are two opposing worldviews in society one will be preferred and the other harmed. Which worldview is being marginalized now? You tell us. Merely being straight is the new homophobia.

You think we're exaggerating? Think about this. What else has recently been demonized that was once highly respected? To scratch the surface, the following:

Motherhood. In one generation we have watched motherhood, once the most revered of all human roles, degraded into unfulfilling drudgery; mothers who stay home and devote their young lives to their children are considered ignorant and worthless; worldly money-making careers have taken priority over motherhood and homemaking in many women's hearts.

Manhood. Just as women earned their "right" to live like men, men became feminized. And not just effeminate. They actually pretend to become women!

Marriage. Not only are couples getting married later in life or not at all, marriage doesn't mean what it used to mean. In one generation it has gone from meaning a sacred commitment between one man and one woman into meaning anything goes: man-man, woman-woman, man-women, woman-men, women-men, and apparently whatever other combinations people dream up. As Homer Simpson advertised when he became a minister online in order to make some extra money, "I will marry any one to any thing." And anybody who stands in favor of traditional marriage is a hater and deserves to be punished. Yes, people have actually been persecuted, vandalized, suspended, fired, had contracts cancelled, and received terrorist and death threats, just for speaking out for man-woman marriage, an act now considered an intolerable form of hate.  

Having a family. When just a generation ago a man having his quiver full was the greatest of earthly blessings, we have watched having a baby become associated with oppressive dollar signs and the overpopulation myth. One result is that families have become smaller and smaller, even nonexistent. Yes, many couples now think it is actually wrong for them to reproduce. (Note 8/4/19: England's Prince Harry and his American wife Meghan Markle just announced they were limiting their family to 2 children because of "global warming." Try to wrap your mind around that moral reasoning!) In our day how much a baby would cost was hardly a consideration. When people wanted a baby, or another baby, or another baby, they made do. They knew that babies were worth more than anything. Now many people having a lot of babies are having them to get welfare checks!

The power of procreation. We have watched sex acts become a casual activity void of responsibility and procreation a despised nuisance. We recently saw an ad on TV when the woman grimaced realizing she had forgotten to take her birth control pill the day before. Abortion, the legal right to destroy an unwanted human being, has become so popular that since 1973, the year we were married, 60 million unique, healthy, developing human beings have been brutally killed in the wombs of their healthy American mothers. We have watched sex, severed from reproduction and family, become the national appetite, in courts, in sales, in entertainment, in the multi-billion dollar porn industry.

Does it not follow that the next step will include pressure and coercion into participating in perverse sexuality? As Newt Gingrich said, it's a fascist movement,as in the use of force. Sadly, many people would rather give in to a powerful movement than try to fight it, no matter how evil. Lots of people want to be on the winning side just because it's winning. Lots of people want to be told what to do and believe. Incredibly, lots of people don't care about liberty. We were recently watching an episode of Foyle's War in which this very thing occurred, based on true events. During World War II groups of English Nazi sympathizers/traitors arose in England hoping to position themselves to welcome the Germans, simply because they believed the Nazis would be the inevitable victors.

This may sound alarmist or exaggerated to people not paying much attention. But they need to know that this is what this brave new world looks like. Virtue is the new immorality, the new hate, the new crime. Debauchery is the new virtue, the new love, the new law. Welcome to Sodom.
