The (Sexual Revolutionary) Beat Goes On

February 18th, 2015 Comments off

This article was first published at National Catholic Register on January 14, 2015.

Actor Gary Sinise and Fox TV personality Brett Baier withdrew from their planned participation in a conference of Roman Catholic business leaders, under pressure from the Gay Lobby. You might think this is just another episode of the gay lobby intimidating people they don’t like. But there is more at stake here. This episode is part of the pattern that has allowed the Sexual Revolution to continue with minimal resistance. What’s at stake here is whether ordinary people are allowed to have their own version of their own life stories. Read more…

Christianity without Christ

November 30th, 2014 Comments off

Jody Bottum’s new essay at The Weekly Standard explores the way religious themes are emerging in some of the most radically secularized movements of our time. He observes that “white privilege” has become the modern equivalent of original sin. Political correctness includes the “shunning” of sinners, akin to that practice by sects such as the Amish and Jehovah’s Witnesses. He notices that book burning has returned. The apocalyptic nature of radical environmentalism allows its advocates to abandon the practices that are part of normal life, in favor of taking radical measures to deal with the impeding Weekly Standard cover .Bottum.DaveCleggend of the world as we know it.

This is all very interesting, and no doubt, mostly correct. I feel called to add to Bottum’s point, however. I take as my starting point, the unapologetic position that Christianity is true, and that the Church is not just another political or social institution. Accordingly, I believe that each and every person has a desire for God, implanted into their hearts by God. The desire for Truth, Goodness and Beauty are all manifestations of that desire.

This is why the attempt to create Christianity without Christ has failed. It is why the further attempt to eliminate all vestiges of Christianity has not worked either. Even its enemies cannot resist using Christian tools. Almost in spite of itself, the modern world smuggles Christian concepts back into society.

Even more pointedly, Bottum asserts that the modern world uses these Christian concepts but without the coherence and systematizing of Christianity. So for example, the secular version of the public shunning of sinners does not include any Read more…

My Story of Survival

August 29th, 2014 Comments off

by Randali (not her real name)

After years of conflict between my experience and the sexual revolution narrative, I stopped being sexually active and focused on rebuilding myself. I sought alternative views on sexuality and discovered Theology of the Body [by St. Pope John Paul II] which rang very true. I wish someone had told me these things earlier instead of having to re-invent the wheel alone in the 21st century.

I was born and raised in Lebanon. I was baptized Maronite but I grew up in a secular, progressive bubble. I used to read Western

magazines and brainwashed myself into the sexual liberation ideology. Sex was like a pleasant massage and a healthy physical activity I was eager to try. My only hard limits were age and consent. But everything was permissible between two (or more) consenting adults. This was the official party line. Read more…

The New Class Warfare: “All we want to do…”

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

Allow me to point out a pattern in the promotion of the Sexual Revolution:

  • All we want to do is lower the cost of divorce to the handful of people whose marriages have irretrievably broken down.
  • All we want to do is allow abortion for cases of rape and incest.
  • All we want to do is allow married couples to use contraception for serious health reasons.
  • All we want to do is provide sexual education for children whose parents might not be responsible enough to do it themselves.
  • All we want to do is allow underage girls to get abortions and contraception without their parents knowing, because some parents might abuse the girl.

Never mentioned in any of these historical episodes, is the fact that the purveyors of these lines are simply lying. They want more, much more, than they are admitting. They know exactly what they are planning to do. They have other, much more extensive purposes than they will admit in public.

They know perfectly well that the public would not accept their larger purpose. They know perfectly well that once the principle is Read more…

The economics of sex

by Tamara Rajakariar

Ever wonder why men seem to make less effort to pursue women, there are more break-ups and premarital partners, and marriages are later and less often? It’s all about the economics of sex – the demand, the supply and the cost. Oh, and the impact of the invention of the contraception pill. Read more…

CARLSBAD – For decades, the Sexual Revolution has promoted the guilt-free, do-whatever-feels-right culture, telling men and women to put their desires above all else – children, marriage vows, Godly principles and the like.

The social movement has left a devastating path of destruction in the form of broken hearts, broken families and broken lives. Read more…

“If you like your morality, you can keep your morality”

February 21st, 2014 Comments off
How could we have been so blind to the consequences of the sexual revolution?

In recent months there has been a good deal of discussion of the president’s apparent mendacity in his selling of the Affordable Care Act. “If you like your health care you can keep it,” the president repeatedly assured his fellow citizens while the law was pending before Congress. The roll-out of the law in late 2013, however, revealed that this promise was no good, and it is difficult to believe that the president was not aware of this even as he was making it. Because the use of dishonesty to win support for legislation is hardly compatible with the American promise of self-government, this issue has deserved all the attention it has gotten, and indeed it deserves even more.
