USA's Deadly Infection
Oh God in heaven help me, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!!! I’ve been contemplating writing a tongue-in-cheek article about my desire to start a movement in America for the legalization of marriage between man/woman and beast. I planned to satirize the level of perversion and absurdity our society has sunk to due to the adoption of liberal moral relativism. Unfortunately, the freaks among us have beaten me to the punch.
There is an actual organized movement, whom I refuse to identify, that advocates human/animal mating or pairing as an alternative lifestyle. Their motto, “Because speech is not a prerequisite for love.” Excuse me for a moment while I puke! This is not a joke, folks.
Here is a statement from their website: “We may be a small minority, scorned by the majority who may consider our movement to be immoral or perhaps even twisted.” (Gee, ya think??) “But who is truly twisted and immoral, those who yearn to live with animals as partners and love them as equal creatures, or those who violently abuse nature, raise themselves above the rest of creation and, for their perverse comfort, destroy everything and everyone around them.”
So I guess those of us who aren’t particularly turned on by the thought of bestiality, violently abuse nature, raise ourselves above the rest of creation and destroy everything/everybody around us for our perverse comfort. Yesserie Bob, I’m out there every day, kicking puppies and hanging stray kittens. Nothing I like better than a good doggie shish-ka-bob! And I skin ‘em alive too because I love to violently abuse nature.
Well, I hate to tell these wonderfully sensitive people but I AM above the rest of creation, and so is every other person on the planet! Mankind was created in the image of God which means we are mental, relational and moral beings. We have a conscience and can reason and choose from right or wrong. We are made to love and be loved and we experience a wide range of emotions. And, unlike animals, we have a spirit which lives forever.
These deviants have yet to become a tax-deductible organization but, “We hope to become one in the very near future.” They are not, however, without an ironic sense of humor. Their forum, “Reserves the right to remove any indecent or offensive language.” What could they possibly consider indecent or offensive?? I am momentarily rendered speechless…
There you have it America. The intellectual, progressive left-wing communist jerks teaching in our universities must be proud that their polluted experiment of teaching moral relativism has taken such root in our society. I’ll buy them all a Great Dane.
What is moral relativism, you ask? It is the philosophical theory that different moral truths hold for different people. It states that it makes no sense to ask the abstract question whether a given act is good or bad. An act may be good for one person but bad for another, or good in one cultural setting but bad in another, but can never be considered completely good or bad.
Where does mankind get his innate understanding that some things are ok and others are perverted and wicked? Romans 2: 14-15 says, “For when Gentiles (all of us), who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them.”
In other words, God instills within every person an instinctive understanding of basic right and wrong. For instance, even tribes in the deepest jungles of the Amazon know it is wrong to kill a person without just cause. Their children may steal a piece of fruit or a trinket but will naturally hide it to keep from getting in trouble.
Our conscience is one of the major characteristics that separate us from the animals. We can choose to override our baser desires to do the ‘right’ thing.
In D.L. Adams’ article, Moral Relativism and Fall: Solzhenitsyn’s Forgotten Warning to America, he states, “Our legitimization of multiculturalism and moral relativism and acceptance of politically correct self-censorship that allows these fraudulent theories to flourish, have had disastrous results in the ongoing decline of the greatest country ever seen on this planet, the United States of America. We do not now see our own value in comparison to other cultures and ideologies because to make such a comparison that states that we are better is considered wrong, intolerant and bigoted.”
In 1978, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, a former Soviet prisoner of conscience, gave a speech at Harvard called, “A World Split Apart” in which he warned us (the West) about the coming failure of our society. He stated that the rejection of definitive truths will lead to our decline and eventual fall because of our abandonment of the concept of evil and the rise of ‘humanism’, also known as moral relativism and post-modernism.
He stated, “Such a tilt of freedom in the direction of evil has come about gradually but it was evidently born primarily out of a humanistic and benevolent concept according to which there is no evil inherent to human nature; the world belongs to mankind and all the defects of life are caused by wrong social systems which must be corrected.” And this was said over 30 years ago. How far we’ve fallen since then!
The attitude infecting this country of ‘I am my own god and can decide for myself what is right for me’, is as old as time, even though it sounds like it came straight from Oprah’s couch. It is called rebellion and it is aimed against Almighty God, Creator of heaven and earth. Because He made us with free will and the sinful nature we inherited from Adam and Eve, there is something in us that doesn’t want to be told what to do. It seems all of mankind is little more than a petulant, self centered, two year old.
So, what does all this mean? Oh boy, I’m gonna step in it big time, so get ready to be offended!
Romans 1:18-32 states, ”For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man--and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”
Hey, don’t yell at me, I’m just the messenger. God is the one who decided right from wrong and we as his little dust creatures with our little pea brain understanding (compared to His), don’t have a leg to stand on if we plan on challenging Him. After all, He is eternal. We are not. I suppose when we design and create our own universe, then we can make the rules to suit ourselves. Until then, we would be wise to abide by the Top Ten, basic, good ‘ol Commandments. Besides, they were given to prevent all kinds of trouble we normally find ourselves in when we ignore them.
Well, now that the bestiality idea is taken, maybe I’ll write something demanding the right to sacrifice newborns in fire. After all, in our rapidly degenerating society, who’s to say that’s wrong? Hmmm?
