Americans Worshipping New God Called 'Tolerance'
Daley Times-Post ^ | Oct. 8, 2005 | Linda Kimball

Posted on 10/08/2005 12:41:45 PM PDT by Lindykim

"I'm a member of a lost generation.  We have lost our values…our faith…And ourselves.  Traditional authority figures—parents, community leaders, even God—have been discarded.  Sex-ed instructors, university professors, advertisers, Hollywood actors, MTV artists, assorted celebrities—act as the new elders of a church of corrupt, shallow and materialistic humanism.  The porn generation…inhabits a world where 'empowerment' means sex with no strings attached.  Our new god is Tolerance of all behavior, our new credo "live and let live."  Ben Shapiro  

The 'porn elders' worship upon the altars of various foully perverse academic and social Darwinian 'scientism gods' whose gospel of "fornication" they then preach to their 'flock.'  Chief among their scientism gods is Alfred Kinsey, surely one of the most perverted beings of all time.  

Kinsey was a sadomasochistic homosexual pedophile who used his attic to film porn of his wife and male co-workers having sex.  "…he masturbated…with a foreign object inserted up his penis.  By late adolescence, his masochism was well advanced.  He had progressed beyond straws and was inserting a brush back up his penis."  Kinsey's demons eventually drove him to "…tie a strong, tight knot around his scrotum with one end of the rope dangling from the pipe overhead.  The other he wrapped around his hand.  Then he climbed up on a chair and jumped off, suspending himself."  James Jones (Alfred C. Kinsey: A Public Private Life)  

Biographer Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy wrote that Kinsey's impulses from hell drove him to engage in, "auto-asphyxiation while masturbating."  He pierced his genitals to such an extent that by the end, there was, "nothing left to pierce."  

Kinsey's 'research" was fixated upon unnatural and obscenely perverse sex acts.  Both of his "Sexual Behavior" volumes were heavily weighted with data gleaned from homosexuals (many of whom he had sex with) and imprisoned sex offenders—the more perverse, the better.  

Paul Gebhard, co-author of the "Female" volume and later the director of the Kinsey Institute very frankly revealed that, "At Indiana State Farm we had no plan of sampling—we simply sought out sex offenders."  

Wardell Pomeroy, co-author of the "Male" volume concurred.  "We went to the (prison) records and got lists of inmates who were in for various kinds of sex offenses."  

During the course of his 'research' Kinsey and his team of sex criminals attacked 317 children and babies, some as young as five months old.  Despite that these poor children and babies exhibited 'symptoms' such as "'sobbing,' 'violent cries,' 'loss of color,'  'abundance of tears,' and fighting "away from their partners (rapists)' Kinsey claimed that these 'symptoms' were signs of pleasure.  He also claimed that any harm caused to the child through sex with an adult was not to be blamed upon the 'partner' but upon the hysteria created by parents, police, and others.  Sometimes the child is to blame, said Kinsey.  Why?  Because supposedly the child "initiated the manipulation of male genitalia."  

Rex King, a child rapist who rutted on his grandmother, most members of his family, and on about 800 children was praised by Kinsey for his 'research efforts.'  "I congratulate you," enthused Kinsey, "on the research spirit which has led you to collect data over these many years.  Everything you've accumulated must find its way into scientific channels"  

It's absolutely vital that American's know the truth about this disgusting degenerate for his 'research' has been propagated throughout our society.  Kinsey's perversions serve as the 'gospel of sexual standards' for historians, sex-educators (ie.,GLSEN, SIECUS, Planned Parenthood, and GSA) from kindergarten up through university level, lawmakers,  judiciary, sociologists, child protective services, academia, entertainment industry, and all other cultural opinion shapers.  In short--Kinsey's filthy perversions are being taught to America's children.  

It should come as no surprise that his 'research' findings are extremely popular among various academic queer theorists who eagerly look forward to the day when they can freely slake their lusts upon children.  In an essay in "Lavender Culture," used as a text in many college courses, students are advised to work towards dismantling two "archaic concepts."  These are "the innocence of children" and the "potential harmfulness of sex."  Students are encouraged to preach the gospel of "gay is good…it's all right to be having sex."

The Kinsey Reports are simply the written manifestation of Kinsey's sexual depravity.  As with all morally bankrupt narcissists, Kinsey believed that it was not he who was sick but society, and it needed to be cured through the preaching of Baal-Peor's "gospel of the obscene and perverted."     

Following are facts and figures detailing the physical, psychological, and societal tsunami of devastation being wreaked upon America and her youth as a consequence of worshipping America's god of Tolerance.  Read it and weep for America's youth who are senselessly dying in America's own 'killing fields."  

From www.fofweb.com (Facts on File) Health Reference Center            

CDC data (2002) show that 16,000 Americans are dying every year from Aids and 40,000 more are becoming infected with HIV annually.  

As many as 15 million new cases of STDs reported every year in the US  

A breakdown of STDs:               Chlamydia—4,000,000             Gonorrhea—800,000             Syphilis—110,000+             Trichomonas vaginitis and urethritis—several million             Human papillomavirus—1-2 million (HPV is incurable)             Hepatitis B—200,000-1 million             Genital herpes—200,000-500,000             HIV—40,000-80,000  

Total estimates:             1 million infected with HIV             31-50 million with herpes simplex             24 million with HPV             1 million chronic hepatitis B  

Note: almost all cervical cancer is caused by HPV, which is spread by skin-to-skin contact, therefore condoms are useless.  

Note: The University of California, Berkeley found that almost half of its female students were infected with HPV.  The Medical Institute of Sexual Health estimates that 33% of all American women are infected with HPV.  

Note: Of the 15 million new cases of STDs every year, 25% are in the 15-19 year age group.  

The financial price-tag for dealing with this plague:   $10 billion per year is spent on treating selected major STDs other than HIV.  Including HIV, the cost rises to $17 billion a year.  All Americans are bearing this onerous financial burden through higher taxes and health care costs.  

Despite the human wreckage and the senseless suffering and dying, shameless perverts are now preaching their 'gospel of death by sex' to children in kindergarten.  They don't care if children are psychologically damaged and diseased as a result; or even if they die.  In the minds of these degenerates, giving your life for sex is a higher cause than giving your life for your country, and therefore, turning boys into effeminate "boi toys" and girls into "prostitutes" is a cause worth fighting for.  

In "Silent Slaughter" (FrontPage Magazine, June 10, 2003) David Horowitz wrote, "Since 1981 more Americans have died from AIDs than died in the Second World War—468,000 to be exact.  About 40,000 new AIDs cases are reported in the United States every year.  About half the victims are under 25 years of age."  

The sadistic phallic demon Baal-Peor (Lord of the Flies) required his worshippers to masochistically debase themselves by engaging in extremely obscene sex acts.  One scholar said that the easiest way to worship him was on the toilet—an apt description of our culture.  Baal likewise lusted for human blood, so it was necessary for large numbers of his worshippers to be sacrificed to appease him.  By contrast, our Creator calls His children to chastity and abstinence—another sort of sacrifice to be sure, but one which lends itself to life with dignity.

We're fighting a losing battle to keep our children innocent. But I'll keep up the fight til the day I die.

There are things we can do right now as parents. Get rid of the television. No video games. Limited internet with supervision. Get rid of the IM's and the chats. Very few movies. The heck with ratings, find out what is in the movie before you go to see it. Steer your children's friendships from an early age so they make good choices later. Talk to them about what you expect and why. Don't just tell them not to have sex, tell them why not. Listen to their opinions, too, so you know what they think. Be involved. Don't shelter them from everything as they get older; give them to tools to deal with tough situations. Don't try to make them cool or popular.

The world may be ugly, but they are still our kids.

Okay, rant over.

Our tv has filters, we do have video games but the ones rated "E" for everyone. Internet has filters, no IM's or chats allowed. We check out all movies with www.screenit.com before the kids can see them. We are very picky about friends and we don't care if they get mad. In the meantime, my daughter's required reading books, (she's 16), consist of sodomy, rape, pedophilia, all kinds of deviant sex. In the Christian school she was in, she got to learn about Mapplethorpe's photos of a man urinating into the mouth of another man. And Annie Sprinkles performance art consisting of masturbating on stage then inviting the patrons to come up and view her genitalia with a flashlight.

It's a constant battle, my friend.

Did you know that the word Tolerance is a medical term?

“Tolerance is the ability to experience exposure to potentially harmful amounts of a substance without showing an adverse effect.”

How much more multiculturalism can you tolerate?

My 14 yos are reading To Kill a Mockingbird and Red Badge of Courage. I love our school. No pc garbage. Even my son's liberal history teacher is great. She is really left (was at the Cindy S. march in Washington) but loves to have kids in class that actually know what is going on. She encourages debate and my son is thriving on that.

My daughter also read those books at age 14 (or younger). Keep a close eye on what they trot out next. It never ceases to amaze me.

It's not multiculturalism with a small "m" that is the trouble. I have no problem with my children having black kids, jewish kids, all kinds of kids in their classes. I like that they hear liberal AND conservative ideas. I like that they are exposed to different religions and nationalities.

It's Multiculturalism that is the problem. When it becomes a holy grail to be achieved, rather than a natural result of different humans interacting, it's pc nonsense.

Thankfully, I know what is coming in our school and it's pretty much the classics. No weird stuff.

It's a private boys' school, though, so that helps.

The private Christian school is where I had the most problems.

Trust no one. They sneak it in at every opportunity with the hope that no one is looking.

That is a big problem. And so is parental laziness. It's just easier to let them do what they want. And folks wonder why we stopped at three!

We got a puppy instead. I don't have to worry what he watches on TV. Of course, he likes to eat deer poo, so maybe I have a troublemaker on my hands . . .

Ate dinner at a great Italian restaurant the other night. Family that ran it had TEN sons, then a daughter. Can you even imagine? Great fun, and I have to take my hat off to mom. But I know I would have lost one.

And don't worry about traffic. We will never let our boys drive. *grin*

Actually, traffic is more like gridlocked about 8 hours a day.

Listen, it's so bad, that in some of our major cities, where the traffic light controlled intersections are working perfectly, they've been forced to put a cop in the middle of the intersection to stop people from blocking the intersections when the light turns red. So bad that when your light turns green, the intersection is full of cars, dead stopped.

Meanwhile, the federal government winks and nods as millions continue to pour across our borders. LOL!

See my whole post. When it is strained and forced, multiculturalism is ridiculous. But I am all for being around people of all stripes. Though I bet there are many around here that only want to be around folks who agree with them politically and religiously.

A famous man once observed that "Licentiousness destroyes order, and when chaos ensues, the yearning for order will destroy freedom."

Liberty is freedom within moral limits; licentious is "if it feels good do it" anything goes.

Can someone really, seriously explain to me why Multiculturalism is a bad thing. We live in a world of many religions, customs and beliefs. I remember when "political correctness" was called having respect.

Simply put, multiculturalism holds that the truth claims and morals from all cultures are equal, except judeo-Christian truth claims and morals - which are not to be tolerated. Multiculturalism is only a secondary problem. The number one problem is MORAL RELATIVISM. If there is no right and wrong, except what I feel is right or wrong, then I can do whatever I want. Of course, intolerance is the only thing that is wrong in moral relativism. All viewpoints are equally valid except the christian one.

A very simple review of recent history will show that prior to WW II most people lived their entire lives within a few miles at most of the very square foot of land on which they were born. After the war enormous strides in technology along with great upheavals in the geopolitical landscape made immigration and migration of people of all races and creeds possible.

In the distant past cultures and faiths were limited in their spread and corruption by the difficulties of travel. The time necessary to overcome vast distances and geographical obstructions made the spread of culture or faith slow and usually involved military conquest to be effective.

Today inexpensive travel and lax immigration policies in the west has made the spread of alien cultures into the west simple. Along with popular cultures insistence on tolerance for foreign culture infiltration ideas alien to western culture has diluted thousands of years of evolved culture which contain the philosophy property rights, freedom of expression, and Christian values.

Many would make much of the “Melting Pot” idea of the United States. While there is a bit of truth to this notion it does not mean what those today wish to make of it. The United States has had waves of immigration between which there have been backlashes against emigration, which caused restrictions to be placed on immigration. These periods of restriction allowed time for the assimilation of the immigrants into the larger society. Aiding this assimilation was the fact that the vast majority of the immigrants had a deep desire to assimilate. Most immigrants did not wish for their children to learn their native language and many punished their children for using the language of the old country. So deep was their desire was for their children to be Americans.

Today’s immigrants are a far cry from those described above. Many of those crossing our boarders today do not come here for the freedom sought by those of the early twentieth century. Many actually despise our freedom. They come with notions of a law given by a sixth century warlord interpreted by religious clerics.

Others come with the idea of reclaiming land lost to the US in past wars by sheer numbers. Most come with no plans to assimilate in to the larger society or that their children will ever assimilate to become “American”. No nation can long survive with out a common culture. With out a common culture, a commonly held set of beliefs there is no cement to hold a society together. With out a common culture amongst the majority chaos will reign.

Moral Absolutes and Homosexual Agenda Two-fer.

Do NOT read this right before or during a meal, and children are not ready for this either. But to avoid the truth because it is "unpleasant" is what got us where we are, so gird your minds and read up.

Linda Kimball says what needs to be said. When sex pleasure, the more perverted the better, is "god" AND those of us who see the evil tolerate it, then we are complicit in the destruction wrought.

The lie that free sex is free has done grievous harm to millions, and not just physcial illness or death. Hearts broken, hearts hardened, consciences dulled, drugs and alcohol abused to stifle the memories and the disgust, and the vast numbers of children either killed before birth or born to unwed mothers - considered "accidents" instead of precious gifts - cannot be estimated.

The sexual revolution has created death, illness, and feral humans who cannot know what real, faithful and loyal marital love is.

Do you think that the facts cited in the article are not facts? IOW, do you think Kinsey, for instance, did not do or say what the writer states? Or that the disease numbers are wrong?

Another name for perversion for Kinsey was "research."

I found this article difficult to read, it's so disturbing. I can recall studying Kinsey in Psych 101, though the kind of details included in this article, were conveniently excluded.

It is difficult to believe other Psychiatrists bought this stuff, though I know it's true. The profession was corrupted long ago.

And one of the most horrible things is that for a couple of generations Kinsey has been touted to the public as a valid researcher - seeker of truth. His twisted and foul view of human sexuality has been largely accepted, thus he bears much responsiblity for the mess as described in the article.

Whichever "professional" academicians and psychologists or psychiatrists who knew or know of how Kinsey got his "research information" and still accepted his conclusions or research as valid are just as loathesome as Kinsey himself.

I used to have some links to Dr. Judith Reisman's website, but can't find them at the moment. If anyone has links to her, post 'em. She's done heroic research on Kinsey.

We're fighting a losing battle to keep our children innocent. But I'll keep up the fight til the day I die.

Me too, count me in. If I may have a Michael Savage type moment here, I think one day, this slouching towards Gommorah will be fixed either by the people themselves saying, enough is enough and/or some "Anakin Skywalker" will rise up and we will have a more authoritinarian system to set things right. In the latter, it can be dangerous depending on this "Anakin's" motivations, if he has the general interests of the people and the country at heart with the intentions of letting up once things are fixed, then it would be for the good and I can support that. However, sadly, even with good intentions, things can get corrupted and you could end up with a dictator out for himself. The bad thing is that it is usually the latter, with human nature and all. I think with the assault from the left, the media, the PC movement, the tolerate deviancy stuff and so on, it will be our downfall, one way or another. A mushy society cannot survive for long. Look at Europe, it could turn into Eurabia.

A couple of quotes that support your statements:

"[O]ur ancestors established their system of government on morality and religious sentiment. Moral habits, they believed, cannot safely be trusted on any other foundation than religious principle, nor any government be secure which is not supported by moral habits."
-- Daniel Webster, American Jurist and Senator

"The only assurance of our nation's safety is to lay our foundation in morality and religion."
-- Abraham Lincoln

"History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster." -- General Douglas MacArthur

"If men will not be governed by the Ten Commandments, they shall be governed by the ten thousand commandments." --G. K. Chesterton

Is there any real reason I should not consider this an outrageous accusation?

It's my observation as I have followed my own time at the university, and what is happening in Europe and the United States. Part and parcel of political correctness is to accept the beliefs and practices of other cultures. In the USA and Europe, it has brought us to the brink of destruction. We say "Islam is Peace" despite all of the historical evidence to the contrary. We refuse to search mosques - which house a 5th column - we refuse to racially profile middle eastern men even though they constitute the vast majority of the terrorists. Europe has its own problems with its muslim populations and couuntries like Denmark are rethinking after the slaughter of one of their prominent citizens on the street. And that's just the muslim element of the salad bowl. I could go on and on about other cultures like Mexicans who come to America and fly the Mexican flag (been to Santa Ana, CA lately?), hiss and boo the US soccer team at the LA Coliseum, and on and on. Many of these cultures come here and keep their own culture - it's a recipe for disaster. Multiculturalism militates against the "E. pluribus Unim" motto. I could go on and on.

I completely agree with your last post. Virtue and morality are essential for national survival, and those cannot be found outside of religious principle (and i don't mean islamic religious principle).

Because its true...

There are only two authorities in regard to knowing what is true - what is right and wrong, moral and immoral.

1. God

2. One's own mind.

Even accepting another's ideas is within the purview of one's own mind; since I can accept or reject someone else's conclusions freely.

This topic is vitally important and everyone concerned with not only their own well being but that of the country (and indeed, the world) should be considering this. If God is the Author of truth, then He decides what is right and wrong. My own mind doesn't need to weigh and judge or figure out the rules, just needs to figure out how to apply the rules in different circumstances.

If my own mind is the arbiter, then I - and everyone around me - is in for a wild, wild ride. The nature of the mind is that it is unstable and flickering - deciding on one path or truth today, and tomorrow rejecting what it already decided, switching gears so to speak, and jerking me around in another direction. Or pulling me in several directions at once - that's when people feel like "I'm going crazy! My mind's going crazy!"

And moral absolutes are not sectarian, they are universal.

Agreed. If the people as a self regulating society cannot or will not for whatever reasons police or regulate themselves (as they should and have with general success until the 1960's), then as I like to say, "nature abhores a vacuum" and something will come in to fill that need. I'm not saying that what we have before was perfect but it did the job much better. I was listening to Glenn Beck (as I am now to his replays), he said one day, "we need to get back to the America we had under the 48 star flag."

"Tolerance doesn't mean acceptance, it means 'putting up with'".

That sounds like genuine south park/clown posse troll logic.

Should we tolerate pedophiles, pederasts, rapists, etc, etc as well??

Another FReeper said it best (can't recall the name) -- "Libertarian: the alignment of one's self with perversion and evil in the name of freedom" PUKE!!
