We’ve been through much of this before and won’t agree. While Christianity does not have a monopoly on the moral underpinning of a society, it does create a literature which is a stumbling block for those who would oppress and debauch – debauch can also mean aesthetically and simply refer to reduction in quality.
The measure of how far Christianity must be stamped out is in the effort expended to do so, from advertising on the sides of buses to the Winterval garbage and the locking away of chapel crosses at universities, before we get into the papal and Rowan Williams interfaith “understanding and relativism in all things.
There are those who are no friends of Christianity but they would prefer people like Williams to actually stand up for that to which he has been appointed and do not respect him for singularly failing to do so.
Like the EU, the UN and other enemies of man, these people never rest, never stop in their efforts to remove this obstacle to their global plans. I don’t support Christianity just for its political efficacy and yet it is most efficacious, along with nationalism, the family of one natural father, one natural mother and kids, property, free enterprise and other goodies which stymie the global socialism currently being pushed.
Which is why this was an interesting post. Not religious in any way, it draws attention to something that’s been going down for some time now and to understand the mindset of those pushing it, you need only read about Belgium. This is precisely the mindset which is attempting to inure the populace against any sort of horror at what they are pushing - a horror people would have felt quite keenly some decades back.
From tattooed women to gays forced down our throats to bestiality and paedophilia, which is precisely what is happening in schools with those five year olds shown that porn the other day, the idea is to create a reaction from adults which is bemused, worldly, tolerant and largely approving, under the guise of libertarianism. Is it libertarianism to condone atrocities and out-and-out abuse, on the grounds that we have no right to step in and we’re all grown-up and “tolerant”?
Ed Driscoll on the push to normalize deviancy in cinema:
At Big Hollywood, John Nolte wonders why, as the Associated Press would say, everything is seemingly spinning out of control — and into, John believes, bestiality as an advertising device:
You can laugh and say it’s just a joke, but through a war of inches, Hollywood continues its assault to define deviancy down and to normalize destructive behavior. Humor is an excellent way to get us used to and to take the shock value out of something hideous and immoral.If you don’t think there’s an agenda behind this, you haven’t been paying attention the last 40 years. And if you don’t think that there are those who hold the levers of power in our popular culture that would like to remove the stigma from bestiality, you don’t understand the depths of sexual depravity the human animal is capable of.
I used to laugh at loud at the term “slippery slope.”
Then I grew up.
For someone who knows the minds of the vermin above, the PTB – see the Belgium post again – who has read the testimony of dozens of children, including Paul Bonacci and Alisha Owen [the only person to have won a case over it] and then reads the Belgium post and sees exactly the same motifs in play, motifs also found today in gaming, films, music and on television, especially through soaps which are now nothing like what they were some decades ago – none of this is any surprise.
John Nolte is no kook in making that observation – the only problem is the guy who’s never thought about it and auto-mocks it. There is much grounding in Nolte’s remarks. Do you honestly not see the normalization by degrees of what was once seen as aberrant behaviour or perhaps you yourself are caught up in it. Hands up if you spent any time in the last few days in front of a computer screen, watching porn?
It’s an intergenerational, slow, boiling frog principle. I don’t think anyone saying this is kooky enough to claim that the Princess Leia/Jabba commercial, in itself, will instantly corrupt and is the devil’s work but it’s a tiny step on the way to realization of an agenda which is basically the debauching of the underpinnings of society.
We accept it on more orthodox topics such as the erosion of democracy but shy away when it is extended to a nation’s moral compass. I’d suggest that both are part of the overall push and should be resisted. In fact, whilst there are many now, quite commendably, who treat anything whatever that the government involves itself in as anti-citizen. so I treat anything stemming from the PTB, Them as worth opposing.
So if they push climate science, I’m going to oppose it. If they push gay “marriage”, I’m going to oppose it.. If they base their economics on fiat currency, I’m going to oppose it.
And so on. Thus I’m going to oppose the Harry Potter way into hearts and minds or the Laurel Canyon summer of love and any other nasty device to erode our society. I’m neither going to cooperate nor accept their a prioris on which they base their pushes.
And no, I don’t oppose “progress” because this is the very opposite of progress.
