Sexual Insanity

When a society starts to hit rock bottom, you can be sure that sexual anarchy was a big part of the chain of events leading up to it. When immorality skyrockets, then societies plummet. When people start going over the top with all things sexual, then it is not long before their nations start going over the cliff.

Sexual insanity abounds wherever we look. Each day new headlines alert us to yet more sexual perversion and sexual suicide. Yet all this is being defended and promoted by our intelligentsia and so many activist groups. Consider just the most recent example of this moral madness.

In Germany we now have “bestiality brothels”. I kid you not. Let me simply present to you the entire article on this:

“Animal sex abuse is on the rise in Germany, with bestiality brothels being set up across the country, according to a state animal protection officer demanding stronger laws to protect mankind’s furry and feathered friends. Madeleine Martin, the animal protection official for Hessian state government, said the law needed to be changed to make sex abuse of animals – known as zoophilia – a crime.

“‘It is punishable to distribute animal pornography, but the act itself is not,’ she told the Frankfurter Rundschau daily paper on Friday. ‘There are even animal brothels in Germany,’ she said. Sex with animals was being increasingly seen as a lifestyle choice, and thus more acceptable. ‘The abuse seems to be increasing rapidly, and the internet offers an additional distribution platform,’ she said.

“She said the justice authorities had found it exceptionally difficult to convict a man from Hesse, who had offered pictures and instructions for animal sex abuse over the internet. ‘Zoophilia must be completely banned in the reformed animal protection law,’ said Martin, referring to the governments plan to rework that section of the law.

“Sex with animals was banned until 1969, when the animal protection law was introduced, but failed to include a specific ban on zoophilia, the Frankfurter Rundschau said. Martin said the current legal situation makes it too difficult for authorities to intervene – an animal has to be shown to have massive injuries before the animal protection laws prescribe action.”

There you have it folks. Commentary really isn’t even needed here, but it is nonetheless worth pointing out a few inconvenient truths. Firstly, this has not just sprung out of nowhere. This is simply the logical and inevitable outworking of the radical sexual revolution which began in the late 60s.

The push for complete and utter sexual freedom is now simply resulting in the inevitable directions we read about above. And why not, is the only thing we can really ask. If all sexual constraints have been seen as binding and restrictive, and complete sexual expression is seen as the only way to go, then why are we surprised at all this?

Indeed, when we have leading academics telling us there is absolutely nothing wrong with bestiality, then we certainly will see all this become a new lifestyle choice. Princeton University’s Peter Singer is one such leading intellectual to tell us of the joys of animal sex. See here for example: www.billmuehlenberg.com/2011/05/23/sweden-sheep-and-sexual-suicide/

And with the sexual activists working overtime to destroy marriage, insisting that it has nothing to do with one man and one woman for life, then of course anything goes. Homosexual marriage and group marriage are thus entirely logical options and acceptable lifestyle choices. So why not human-animal love?

Why discriminate against a person’s sexual preferences? They may even be born with an orientation in this direction, so who are we to judge these people and deny them their right to love as they see fit? Equal love must win the day, and people must be free to engage in any relationship they desire.

Indeed, reading this article, it seems that behind it is this very sort of thinking. After all, do we find in it any moral denunciation of this sexual perversion? Do we find any clear condemnation of individuals who get their kicks with animals?

No, the only thing that seems to be of concern is that the animal might get harmed! Now I am all in favour of keeping animals safe from unnecessary harm and danger. But is that the only thing we can say about bestiality today? Is that the only ethical consideration that comes into play here?

If animal wellbeing is the only moral consideration in the bestiality debate, then we have well and truly lost the plot. Then we as a society are likely beyond redemption. Then we have well and truly fallen off the cliff. Mark Steyn nicely summarises the bitter fruit of this decades-old act of sexual suicide:

“The wreckage is impressive. The Sexual Revolution was well-named: it was a revolt not just against sexual norms but against the institutions and values they supported; it was part of an assault against any alternatives to government, civic or moral. Utopianism, writes the philosopher Roger Scruton, is ‘not in the business of perfecting the world’ but only of demolishing it: ‘The ideal is constructed in order to destroy the actual.’ Who needs families, or marriage, or morality? Who needs nations, especially nations with borders? We’ll take a jackhammer to the foundations of functioning society and proclaim paradise in the ruins.”

Quite so. We are now witnessing before our very eyes what may be the final destruction of the West. Whether there is any turning back from this point remains to be seen. But the sexual revolutionaries have not given us the utopia they promised. They have given us instead death and destruction. They ought to be real proud of themselves.
