How To Bring Down a Culture – Almost Overnight
Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch, April 2, 2013
The secular left is working overtime to destroy our culture. The attempt to utterly destroy marriage is just one of the ways in which they are doing this. And it may be the most successful assault occurring. Once you tamper with the fundamental units and institutions of society – marriage and family – you really do destroy everything.
All the radicals have known this and worked toward this. Vladimir Lenin for example put it this way: “Destroy the family, destroy the nation.” As historian Arnold Toynbee correctly observed, “Nations rise and fall with the health of its families.”
So the activists have always targeted marriage and family in their attempts to utterly destroy society, and fashion it into their own radical image. Thus the secular left has been obsessed with the promotion of special rights for homosexuals, including marriage and adoption rights.
They know full well that this is the chief means by which Western society will buckle and crumble. And of course the push to redefine marriage by the homosexual activists will not and cannot stop there. Already all the other sexual revolutionaries are hopping on the same bandwagon. I have documented this time and time again.
Those who think sexual ‘love’ with groups, or children, or family members, or even animals is just fine have all appreciated the demolition job performed by the homosexual activists, and they are using the very same arguments for themselves.
But don’t take my word for it. There are tens of thousands of websites for example promoting all of these alternate sexualities, and they make no bones about what they want and how they attempt to get it. Consider just one site (of so many) as an example of all this.
Get a load of what the “Full Marriage Equality” site has to say: “I argue for marriage equality. By that I mean that society and all local, state, federal, and international laws, institutions, and programs should recognize any marriage registered by any persons without restrictions on the basis of race, color, creed, ancestry, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, or religion.
“The global definition of marriage should be as follows: ‘The uniting of consenting individuals in a witnessed ceremony.’ We believe everyone has the right to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with any and all consenting adult(s) of their choice, regardless of birth or sexual orientation.”
Well, at least we are not left guessing what these folks are after. There you have the crystal clear demands of the militants: marriage can and should be anything whatsoever that you want it to be. Indeed, this site in its FAQ section makes a spirited defence of all sorts of things, including incest:
“First of all, regardless of laws, I see nothing wrong with any kind of physical affection, contact, or companionship between any consenting adults or minors who are close in age, as long as existing vows to others are not being violated. This includes dating, literally sleeping together, seeing each other nude, hand-holding, hugging, kissing (of any sort,) contact with genitals, intercourse, living together, marrying, etc. If these people are right for each other and want this with each other, then it shouldn’t be anyone else’s place to object. As I always point out, I’m writing about consensual experimentation, exploration, affection, making out, sex, love, dating, partnering, living together, and marriage.”
I am not making this stuff up folks. Indeed, there is no need to – all we have to do is go to the various websites of the sexual revolutionaries and let them speak for themselves. And yet I have lost count of the number of times I have been publicly mocked, scorned, ridiculed and abused for simply stating that homosexual marriage will lead to all this other stuff.
They will look you straight in the eye and openly lie to you: “This will have no impact on you whatsoever, and there is no slippery slope at work here. You are just whipping up hysteria and being a fear-monger.” Why right, tell me another.
And along with all this insanity we have the apostate church jumping right on board with it all. Thus we have no-hell Bell telling us that those who resist the homosexual agenda and homosexual marriage must repent! I kid you not.
This is what the hell-denying emergent church leader Rob Bell said recently in an interview: “You sort of die or you adapt. And if you adapt, it means you have to come face to face with some of the ways we’ve talked about God, which don’t actually shape people into more loving, compassionate people. And we have supported policies and ways of viewing the world that are actually destructive. And we’ve done it in the name of God and we need to repent.”
When the world is going to hell in a hand basket, and you have big cheese Christian leaders fully supporting this, then you know the end must be near. Indeed, that is just what Matt Barber has opined in a new article, “Gay Marriage Will Destroy America as We Know It”.
He writes, “Our nation has fallen so far and so fast in its embrace of empty relativism that it makes the head swim. It’s at once perplexing and heartbreaking that we have a U.S. Supreme Court seriously considering inventing a newfangled ‘right’ to that chicane aberration tagged ‘same-sex marriage.’ This is true particularly when one considers that the defining behaviors central to ‘gay marriage’ were, for hundreds of years and for obvious reasons, legally and properly classified as ‘crimes against nature.’ Though our postmodern zeitgeist may have changed, objective reality has not.
“Indeed, American culture, while casting aside that which is just, moral and true, has instead taken up that which is unjust, immoral and false. This abject rejection of absolute truth provides compelling evidence that the good ol’ USA—the greatest nation on earth—is on the fast track to becoming ‘the late, great USA.’ So-called ‘gay marriage’ is a counterfeit—a mockery of legitimate marriage. It’s like taking a rotten apple, spray-painting it orange and then calling it an orange. ‘Same-sex marriage’ is no more real marriage than a rotten apple is an orange. It’s mock marriage.”
He concludes, “In sum, proponents of counterfeit ‘gay marriage’ pretend that normalcy, biology, history, morality and sanity are all irrelevant to the debate. They are not. As counterfeit money devalues the dollar, counterfeit ‘gay marriage’ devalues the institution of legitimate marriage.
“Scripture reminds us that ‘there is nothing new under the sun’ (Eccl. 1:9). Ultimately, the oxymoronic notion of ‘same-sex marriage’ is nothing new. It’s both rooted in man’s age-old rebellion against God and ancient pagan sexual morality. So, I’ll leave you with this fundamental question: Since God undeniably designed marriage to be the exclusive union of man and wife, who—or what, then—do you suppose manufactured the absurd notion of ‘same-sex marriage’? I think the answer is pretty clear.”
It certainly is clear – except for all the Rob Bells of the world who think they know better than God, and can correct all the things God obviously got wrong. So the only real question here is this: Who will be in more trouble come judgment day – the militant activists, or the apostate pastors who have told God to get lost as they baptise the immorality and lusts of the world?
