Random Thoughts While on The Road

GUEST EDITORIAL: While traveleing and listening to the Canadian Broadcasting Company, we learned that all the provinces of Canada had now adopted Homosexual Marriage and redefined marriage as between two human beings. The commentator seemed awfully glad, even smug, about the decisions. We were deeply saddened.

Something very serious has happened to Western Civilization over the past 50 years or so. We seem to have given up the ideas of disgust and perversion; erased them. Due to political correctness, we now simply disregard anything two consenting adults do in private, regardless. Soon, we'll be disregarding any sexual behaviors at all, even when they involve children, as being only the partner's personal business. The idea that one person's actions just might constitute a violation or desecration of another person's body , even when the other person consents, has almost slipped from our collective ideas of morality and legality.

Someday soon, there may no longer be any age limit on sex acts with children. Certainly, the day is coming when law suits will require judges set lower limits for the age of consent. The Man-Boy Love Association has been trying for years to legalize pre-pubescent sex with children. Internet Pornography featuring both adults and children feeds on adult perversion and it is so pervasive, the legal system cannot deal with it.

Oh sure, no matter how polymorphusly perverse any person might be, they still will find some acts and desires that disgust them, at least somewhat. If they have retained any capacity for love, they will recognize that the body of another whom he desires is not an object merely to be used and discarded but a subject to be venerated. They'll recognize there is such a thing in sexual conduct and desire that amounts to desecration though that term is normally used in conjunction with others such as modesty, decency, and morality, terms many prefer to ignore. Even pornographers recognize that there is more to sexual morality than mere consent.

But our ideas of disgust over sexual immorality are nearly gone. A recent president had sex with a young intern in the Oval Office (mis-using his powers for mere moments of sexual pleasure) but there was little outrage expressed within the nation. In fact, his own political party defended him with the mantra, ?Everyone does it.? implying (falsely) that every president had his little fling and it was no big thing. Forgotten was the age and vulnerability of the girl, that president's past sexual escapades, and the indignity of the act made public. Lately, he defended himself in a book by saying the reason he did it was because he could. And he has come to personify a complete political party of millions.

The sexual revolution tried to sweep away all "irrational" barriers, prejudices, repressions, and taboos. In fact, it is "repression" that has become identified as the only true sin. The advocates of liberation have persuaded us that the only sins are those against pleasure. Christians are scoffed at because they still preach against Biblical Sins.

We must define what is legally perverse or we will eventually lose all sense of morality. We must be able to define what is normal, natural desire and what is abnormal and deviant. We cannot rely on consent alone. Otherwise we will eventually lose our ability to define rape, pedophilia, and masochism that victimizes our children and other innocents.

Marriage has always been treated as a sacrament whereby two people consecrate their lives not just to each other but to the family that will spring from them. Thus, marriage is not the mere rubber stamping of sexual consent! It marks the point when concerns move away from the present self to future generations, when parties renounce other sexual license and mere self gratification, and become the benefactors of other's futures. To treat marriage as mere conjunctive consent is to jeopardize not only the future of our yet unborn children but also our nation, indeed, even Western Christian civilization as we know it.
