Sexual Revolution Part 2

Have you noticed that in any major newspaper or news outlet there is at least one story about homosexuals? And it has been this way for years. Is there really nothing else of interest to talk about? Or is this editorial policy driven by the agenda to normalize the gay lifestyle? It really doesn't take a genius to figure it out.

Today there are two big stories. The first is that New Jersey has become the third state in the country to legalize gay unions. The second is the continual division in the Anglican communion over gay bishops and civil union ceremonies.

Earlier I had posted a simple question: who actually won the sexual revolution? The answer is- nobody! Everyone who fought to overthrow the moral norms and establish immoral ones are paying the price. We now have STD's punctuated by rampant AIDS epidemics. We have "hookups" and "dumpings". We have divorce and remarriage. Then to avoid that whole scenario we have live-ins and break-ups. I really don't see any winners here.

Then there are the children who are the products of all these contorted "relationships". They grow up thinking the perverse is normal and continue the practice themselves. We have warped an entire generation, and there appears to be no real relief in sight.

I propose a new revolution. This time we will reserve sex for one man and one woman who will commit themselves to each other for a lifetime with marital vows. Revolutionary? Not really. It's the way it was for centuries. It's the way God created it to be from the beginning. Yet, it appears revolutionary because it would run completely counter to the moral norms of current society.

The sexual revolution was a complete and utter failure. The sooner we wake up to that, the more there can be hope for us as a nation and as a generation. I wonder, is there anyone out there who can honestly say that they have not suffered in the least from the sexual revolution. I truly doubt it- not if they're honest; honest with themselves and with God. No I think they were truly the losers. But then so are we all. For we all have to live with the consequences whether we like it or not.

God have mercy on us all!

I have been thinking of letting the blog go. I've been pretty busy lately and it didn't appear there was much interest in the blog. If I do post again, I'm sure it won't be until at least Easter. We'll see what happens. Thanks for the notes.

It's 'at least easter'... can I look forward to a return to normal (or whatever) type posting?

Hidden One,

Yes, it's at least Easter. In fact, it is Easter- the Easter season that is. This is the wonderful thing about the Catholic Church. Easter is not just a day, but an entire season. Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!

The busy-ness of my life continues so I can't promise anything as far as regular posts. Stay tuned.
