If you wanted to come up with a great way of destroying civilisation, simply seek to radically tamper with human sexuality, undermine marriage, and destroy family. That would pretty much do the trick. And we are seeing this happen all over the Western world.
How much longer our culture can go on in the face of the relentless war which has been declared against it is a moot point. But the activists are hell-bent on turning our society upside down, and they seem quite happy to destroy the whole thing in the process.
The militant homosexual activists are of course spearheading this charge, and each new day we see more appalling examples of this. The culture-wreckers are working overtime, like termites on steroids, gutting our culture from within. While the outside veneer still seems intact, the foundations are just about all chewed out.
Consider another bunch of recent examples of how successful the demolition experts have been in tearing down the very basis of Western civilisation. The first comes out of Brazil and is a wonderful example of “we told you so”. We have been warning for years now that when you mess with marriage, then soon everything and anything goes.
When marriage is no longer about one man and one woman, then any sort of combination and permutation is possible. Any gender, any number, anything – it is all fair game. So now we have not just couples but triples doing their thing. The story runs this way:
“Controversy has been sparked as the first civil union between three separate partners was registered in Tupã, in the Northwestern region of Sao Paulo state, Brazil last week. The three-person union has shocked religious groups in the country, and sparked further concerns that the traditional family unit is being further eroded by the current day society. The actual declaration of the union between the man and two women was in fact made three months ago, but it finally became public this week.
“Notary officer, Claudia do Nascimento Domingues, has explained that the three partners lived together and wanted to publicly declare their status in order to guarantee their rights. Checks were conducted to see if there was any legal impediment to the unions and the notary office has confirmed that none were found.
“Attorney Nathaniel Batista dos Santos Junior oversaw the legal process of creating the three-way declaration. ‘Notary in SP registers stable union of three people. How can this be? Mankind is lost indeed,’ wrote Twitter user Maíra Rabassa. ‘Notary registers stable union of 3 people. Man accompanied by two women. I don’t know what to say,’ expressed the bewildered Yuri Guimaraes. ‘Excuse my ignorance: Isn’t this polygamy and, therefore, crime?’ questioned another user.
“One widely respected psychologist and evangelical Christian, Marisa Lobo, who is known for encouraging reparative therapy laws for homosexuals in Brazil, has been one of the most outspoken in expressing her outrage at the news: ‘Jesus, come back soon! My faith and my indignation also grew. My question is: what are these law holders driving at? What is the media driving at? What are these groups driving at by confronting the society with totally distorted values?’ she questioned, according to the Verdade Gospel publication.
“According to Lobo, even an employee at the notary office, who confirmed to her that such a union had taken place, also expressed her shock and concern at the development.”
Yeah, well, who are we to judge? I mean, one man and two women; three men and two women; four men and a Chihuahua; six women and a toddler; a football team and a case of beer – why ever not? But it is not just a matter of all this madness going down all around us. The truth is, all of this activism will impact every single one of us.
Of course the activists will lie through their teeth and claim that no one will be impacted by special rights for homosexuals and marriage and adoption rights. Yeah sure, try telling that to the O’Reilly family. They are now $30,000 in the hole, all because they had the audacity to resist the militant homosexual agenda. (Note to self: start selling off the library – I’m going to need some fast cash real soon.)
Here is how this incredible story goes: “The price of following your conscience in Vermont is $30,000. That’s the amount a Roman Catholic family has agreed to pay over a disagreement about hosting a same-sex ‘wedding’ reception at its family inn.
“An employee for Jim and Mary O’Reilly, a devout Catholic couple, turned down the request of a lesbian couple from New York City to host their ‘wedding’ reception, following a same-sex ‘marriage’ at a Buddhist retreat in Vermont. Attorneys for the inn said that the employee had misrepresented the position of the O’Reillys, and that it was their policy simply to inform couples about their beliefs on marriage, while agreeing to serve anyone who wished it. Although the family emphasized they ‘treat all people with respect and dignity,’ and they serve and employ homosexuals, they said celebrating sexual immorality ‘goes against everything that we as Catholics believe.’
“The ACLU sued the inn last July, and were joined by Vermont Human Rights Commission. The commission joined the suit despite ruling in 2005, in a separate discrimination case brought forward by a lesbian, that there were ‘no reasonable grounds to believe that Wildflower…illegally discriminated’ against homosexuals in their policy. ‘It is unfortunate when a state agency teams up with the ACLU to harass and punish a private family business over its owners’ constitutionally protected thoughts and beliefs,’ said Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Byron Babione. ‘Legal attacks like this one are not pursuits for justice, but attempts to coerce and police private expression.’
“The O’Reillys opted to settle the case, giving $10,000 to the commission and $20,000 to a trust run by the couple. ‘Our beliefs haven’t changed, but we do have lives to live, a family to love, a business to grow, and a community to serve,’ said Wildflower Inn owner Jim O’Reilly. ‘Small businesses like ours cannot match the limitless resources of the government and the ACLU’.”
Wow, $30,000 bucks just to be able to remain true to your conscience. Why don’t these militants stop pussy-footing around and get serious? Why don’t they bring in what they really would like to see? How about hangings in the public square – after we tar and feather the recalcitrants first of course?
How about branding people who dare to oppose their agenda with a hot iron? If the word “homophobe” can’t fit on the forehead, they could probably get “bigot” to work. But there are plenty of other worthy options which I am sure the militants would be happy with: burning in oil, death by lethal injection, or any number of items from the old witch hunt days.
Finally, and closer to home, as I have documented so often, the legalisation of homosexual marriage will mean everyone must submit – or else. There may be talk about exemptions but it just won’t happen. I have already quoted from the activists who insist that no church groups or believer can be exempt. See here for just some of their quotes to this effect: billmuehlenberg.com/2012/05/25/lets-get-those-lousy-christians/
And other nations facing homosexual marriage are also dealing with the same thing. Earlier this year David Cameron’s promise to protect English churches from homosexual marriage laws hit a big legal snag when his own Justice Minister said it would be hard to guarantee that clergy would not face court challenges if they refused to preside over homosexual unions.
And in New Zealand, another nation debating this issue, a recently obtained legal opinion found that such a law change would mean all marriage celebrants, church elders, leaders, photographers, caterers and any other person or entity supplying services to the public will be forced to be involved in such weddings,
So there you go – submit or be punished. All because a tiny handful of activists from a tiny minority group have decided to push their agenda on all of society, and force anyone who dares to differ to face the heavy hand of the law. Freedom is being taken away from us, right before our very eyes. If that is not the end – at least of Western democratic nations – then I don’t know what is.
