"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?" 1 Corinthians 6:19 NKJV
Sex is sacred.
For millennia, this biblical principle was the bedrock moral value of the Western World.
The mysterious portal through which human beings enter this world, sex was to be reserved exclusively for a man and a woman joined permanently by marriage vows, and all other forms and circumstances of sexual expression were forbidden locked away, as it were, in a sort of Pandoras Box, heavily guarded by the sentinels of Judeo-Christian Civilization. Confining sex to marriage was universally seen as essential to strong marital unions and secure families, and thus to the very fabric of civilization itself.
However, this strict but divinely inspired and life-protecting moral code after enabling century after century of dazzling societal evolution in the Western world has unraveled in our own lifetimes.
The change first emerged into stark public view during the 1960s under the banner of "sexual liberation" and "gay liberation." While the public was distracted by colorful spectacles of youthful rebellion, psychedelic drug use and the rock "invasion," just below the surface a full-bore assault on Western institutions and values particularly traditional sexual morality was taking place.

“preserving what’s left of the country I grew up in.”
In large part because of the success of the sodomite agenda the same country I grew up in too is nearly unrecognizable. Its as deadly to the moral and social health of a nation,if not more so than big government.
Desensitized much?Was this instinctive defect rendered at birth or as a result of politically correct association and indoctrination?Do you similarly lack the instinctive revulsion which protects normal humans from eating rotten food because it tastes and smells bad?
LOL. Or what?
Perhaps there is something about homosexuality that resonates so strongly with you that you feel compelled to publicly shout the loudest in condemning it. Not that that makes you a bad person...
The natural revulsion I feel is for those tiny little nazis who see themselves as somhow chosen to regulate life for others. They are very brave behind the keyboard, when their mommy let's them use it.
Gee, homosexuality has only been taboo in every long lasting social culture in history, maybe that “resonates” for some strange reason?
The behavior is immoral. Like murder, kidnapping, rape. And yes there have been times and places where each one of those vices were legally practiced by free people. Ever hear of that word, “vice”, kinda rare in your neck of the woods I’d think — a helpful concept though — it means something that’s bad to do and yet can become a habit for some.
The ancient wisdom of making homosexuality taboo has many solid reasons. To be honest you’ve probably read or heard many or most of them,. But, grasshopper, the power of the dark side is very strong. It’s easy to find some perfectly “logical” reason why all of human history and moral code development is wrong and your chosen vice is just the thing for you.
Legalizing homosexuality is incredibly destructive to a society. It is suicide.
“There are many other examples, even among top conservatives. It seems most, if not all, are falling away from this jugular issue for the same reason: They’re afraid”
Give me a break. This makes no sense at all. Ann Coulter is afraid of homosexuals? Why the heck is she voluntarily going to speak at their conference? No one would have persecuted her if she had been conveniently busy with something else that evening. Fear doesn’t guide Ann’s speaking or writing. No, this is something else, entirely.
I’m not talking about Ann being afraid but I do believe Rush, Beck, and many others are or more so they don’t want to deal with it. I think what I find the most offensive is that so many conservative voices use the word “homophobia” alongside racism and omit anti-antisemitism. Also these conservative voices totally ignore stories on campus intimidation and blacklisting of individuals who will not tow the Homosexual line. CNN, ABC, CBS, and MSNBC run stories like Mathew Sheppard but when it comes to the antithesis cases the conservative media is silent. It is as if there is an unspoken rule that you can’t report on homosexuals unless it is positive or something detached like George Michael getting busted again for picking up dates in public restrooms.
I disagree. The battle is one and the same and it doesn’t mean that you have to devote all your energy to it. As for people being attracted to whomever they are well that isn’t the point. The point is dealing with the issue in a way that does not encourage homosexuality or sexual liberalism. People are attracted to many things, rubber coats, shoes, animals, etc. Homosexuality is the one place where what is just propaganda, pseudo science, and lies can be used to get people fired for not agreeing, get students kicked out of graduate programs for disagreeing. Doesn’t that bother you? I’m not asking for any conservative voice to go 24/7 anti-gay but at least show that you are brave enough to occasionally report the news that isn’t favorable to the hateful radicals. Occasionally have on the opposing view of scientists and professionals who do not agree.
Instead we get countless responses like this which tells me that maybe you really want homosexuality to be normed and you really want the view of homosexual radicals to be pushed down everyone’s throat or else. Are you going to be silent when soldiers get reprimanded and kicked out the military for not wanting to submit to the gay activist propaganda? I’m sure you will be silent as will Rush, as will the mainstream media. You’ll leave it up to worldnetdaily and cnsnews not wanting to give it more credibility. Right now much of the conservative media is ignoring what is happening on campuses with students being kicked out of programs for simply not being willing to tow the pro-gay line.
According to my opinion, and the opinions of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process which we call either ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare. What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.
It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.
The first stage being "demoralization"....---KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov, circa 1984
you sound like an expert on idiots. You no doubt developed your expertise at family reunions.
Sounds like leftist speak to me... There are centuries of historical precedence regarding what works and what society values (laws) versus this novel homosexual experiment imposed by the elitists on the yellow brick road...
Go right ahead and celebrate society being forced to value and give privilege to two men exploring each others colons in a 'committed' & 'loving' relationship premised upon a sexual disorder.
I will continue with my "bad thinking" while you choose irrelevance --thank you very much
I am with you as are a super majority of Americans outside of the media, Washington DC, Hollywood, and areas of Urban blight.
Note: My referenced response was not specific to any posting here -it was meant in general to ALL supposed conservatives that are ‘afraid’ to oppose the homosexual agenda...
Truth eventually always wins..
I think it will. This is an issue I wish I didn’t have to worry about and I understand how others don’t like having to deal with it either but that is what the left counts on that is how they have succeeded in pushing their agenda of sexual liberalism so far against the grain. They know if they can get us to shut up or be shamed into silence they win. They don’t want a debate because it hurts them every time.
Seek professional help, child. Your fascination with homosexuality is an issue you can be helped to come to terms with. It’s okay if you like gladiator movies and show tunes.
"The result? The result you can see...."
--KGB Defector Yuri Bezmenov
Nice personal attack -Saul Alinsky would be proud & the homosexual agenda perverts would cheer (you know, that enemy of my enemy thing)...
You apparently have no valid argument that supports your position which is?
You have accurately diagnosed the problem. This is why we are swimming upstream when even churches are telling gullible parishoners that homosexuality is a good thing, we're expecting political solutions from a spiritual problem.
First, clean up the churches.
